    There is....and we do talk about it there. But Dexter posted that after the episode aired on the West Coast.

    Cause he could never suffer enough. Glad to see death FINALLY visit a family other than the Starks.

    spoilers:Game of Thrones:The BOOKS...SPOILERS!!!!!!

    Yeah, I dunno, as long as you are discussing the show that aired that evening(whether east/west coast feed), I think it's 'buyer beware' as far as spoilers. Once the episode airs I think the brakes are off.

    I think you are both missing the point a bit as I think Smytheking was right. The reference made in the earlier post WAS spoilery... it was NOT the reference to Joff's death that was the problem. It is very subtle but still...we all should be careful.

    I agree. I actually didn't read the post that initiated the response so apologies. Yeah, I have cautioned many times that book readers should not even say things like 'wait till you see what happens next'. Yes, sometimes slips can be inadvertant, but book readers need to be very careful.

    EDIT: Sorry, maybe Dex corrected his posts, but I still don't see anything wrong. He commented on events that happened in last nights episode. PM me if I am missing something.

    Another thing that I thought they did well in was how they really put the suspicion of who killed Joff up for grabs. Tyrion is obviously going to get screwed for this (based on his preview scenes in handcuffs) but the scene did a great job of leaving you to wonder who actually did it. It could have been any number of people. It also followed the book description very well too...as it was not obvious who did it.

    So....who killed JR...er...JB?

    Nope, my post was directly related to what was said in the episode only.

    Unless they haven't watched that wedding from last season

    Because Joffrey had basically berated Tyrion for a 10+ minutes straight, I figured something was going to happen to him. It wasn't the come out of nowhere surprise.

    But still pretty cool. I must be crazy but didn't Tyrion tell one of his handlers "pay them an extra 20 gold pieces when it's done" or something like that? I thought they were going to have the mini-king battlers do something to Joffrey, or at least change the outcome of their play. Then I thought maybe it was to actually kill Joffrey. Then of course we come to find it probably wasn't Tyrion who did it anyway.

    Is that really it for Shae?

    Sure do now seem to be setting Theon up for some epic payback?

    It was quite a bit more violent in the book so I don't know if it was just too tame.....I have no idea what that says about me. I feel like he didn't suffer enough.

    I really did like the way they handled the aftermath though. Tyrion totally gets blamed for it, but I also liked how they made a point to show Sansa holding the goblet as well so the viewers really DON'T know who did it when alllllll of these different people had a cause to do it.
