    I must have missed something, I thought the latest episode was rubbish. Absolutely nothing happened. Seriously, not a single story progressed at all.

    How about the bear pit? Or Dany trying to free all the slaves. Arya being taken by the Hound also. Melli telling Gendri about his lineage (even though that didn't happen in the book)

    The bear pit was an anticlimax. The slave clearing is obvious, she either needs to get naked or sail across the sea for a good war. Or both. ... preferably both. Arya being taken by the hound was important, forgot about that.

    Have you read the books? The bear pit wasn't supposed to be a climax (in the way that you wanted) or even an action packed scene, it basically shows that Jaime was willing to put his own life at risk to save Brienne, In the book it basically made him my favourite character. Also the fact that Daeny turned down free travel back to Westeros in order to stay and free all the slaves is a big turning point in her story arc.

    I quite enjoy the political intrigue although my having read the books it's hard to keep track of it all.. Like all the old families etc.

    The valerian line ... They are the oldest family yeah!? The mad king was a brerathian? And the dragon girl is his remaining daughter? But also we have found out he has a bastard?

    Almost.

    The mad king was a Targaryen and his daughter is the dragon girl, who is in exile.

    Robert Baratheon was named king after the Jaime Lannister killed the mad king. Robert had several bastards, one of them being Gendry

    OK - so what happened to Robert Baratheon? I think that is where Im getting lost.. maybe that was in season 1 and Ive forgotten.

    This has probably been asked before a few times (so sorry in advance) but how far through the book series is the tv series so far .. ?

    Robert usurped the throne by force. And Tywin Lannister killed all the Targaryen children as a "gift" to earn their place in his good books. Vasaerys (spelling?) escaped with Danaerys and fled to the slave cities. Robert then died and the Kingdom went to his "son" Joffrey, who is actually of no relation whatsoever.

    The last episode that aired is kinda all over the place in terms of the book, but you could roughly place it just under halfway through "Storm of Swords"

    R.B was killed in a hunting "accident". Gored by a boar. Cersei arranged for someone (cant remember) to get robert overly intoxicated while on the hunting trip. Cant remember the details but I think they switched his normal drink for extra strong stuff. It was the first major event to happen in the series.

    Jaime killed Aerys Targaryen who was king before Robert. Robert died whilst hunting and Joffrey inherited the throne un-rightfully

    If any series needed titanium-clad spoiler protection it's this one, especially on certain events in ASOS. It's up there with things like the Sixth Sense in terms of spoiler damage. Personally, I wouldn't want to ruin that for book readers (not everyone has finished reading the series yet) or TV show watchers under any circumstances. At the end of the day, spoiler tags are pretty simple to add (if I can edit them into a post from a phone then it's clearly not too difficult) and the potential upside for people (like Loco, whose post immediately followed yours for example) is too great to ignore. I'll edit the thread title to warn people that they might be exposed to spoilers in here, but for the major stuff it's better that we just spoiler tag it.

    I'm not super fussed about spoilers, i understand for other members sake, but i will actually read the spoilers anyway. I don't have a massive issue about being told stuff before i get the chance to experience it myself.

    For this series, seriously don't do it to yourself Loco! The shock at certain events is a huge part of the experience and a major reason why it has the following that it has.

    The TV guys usually just talk about it in the "Favourite TV Shows" thread. Which is why I made this so we could leave those guys to their own speculating and we could have way more deep convos over here because I would have thought we'd all read the books. Personally I think anybody who sees the OP and then continues reading the thread deserves to have it spoiled. I hate having to go out of my way to accommodate stupid people. 4 years of retail work will do that to you.
