    It was the song the Boltons were singing during the scene with Jamie and Brienne on the horse.



    There are lots of songs in the GoT world and this is one of the more prominent ones along with "The Rains of Castamere."
    What in the world made them play some electric guitar rock version of the song? Thought it kind of ruined the mood. Oh well, you know it's a good episode when your biggest issue is in the credits

    In the books it's like a rock party song. The kind of song where you get drunk at a feast and at some point a minstrel starts to play it and in seconds all the dudes in the hall are screaming it at the top of their lungs.

    THERE WAS A BEEEEEEEAAAAAR !!!!


    And I liked the cut to the credits. (heh!) Jamie's scream right into that? Agony right to jarring festivity? It worked for me.

    Yeah, I dug the odd sideways bend into the Flogging Molly type cover version. The pacing on last nights show was brilliant as was the 4 minutes at a time windows with the characters. Stannis, finally showed some 'fire', and Tyrion's chair dragging was EPIC. When him and Bronn actually grabbed pen/paper to interrogate young Pod...priceless. Firing on all cylinders. Once again, the casting...spot on. Welcome aboard BlackFish.

    I'm just saying if they want us to be immersed into this fantasy world they shouldn't be playing electric guitars and singing a (relatively) modern renditions of songs meant for minstrels and drunks. I liked the way they played The Rains of Castamere. Oh well, a big who cares. I came for the dragons and I stayed for the tits.

    even for 8,000 soldiers...isn't it a little dangerous to leave a dragon in the hands of that guy? Or is she planning something to have said dragon wipe him out...?

    I'd like to think that if she really sees herself as the mother of dragons she wouldn't be giving up her children easily. Gonna be interesting.

    Also, they had better not kill the Hound. I know Arya probably wants to but damnit he's cool as hell.

    Ok, discussion time...and, warning to book readers, be as vague as possible. By now you can see that even the most innocent character has to do things that go against type here and again. As far as evil, the only unrepentant so far is Joffrey, even Cersei loves her children to a fault. But now...Jamie. First off they cast him well. Handsome, rogueish...and despite his flaws...charming. Is that enough? He has lost his swordhand. The measure of his virility even morsoe than his actual manhood. Do you feel sorry for him? Do you find yourself liking him despite the incest and pushing Bran off the tower? And Theon, responsible for the deaths of the two farmers sons, although he looked rightly repulsed by his actions. Does he deserve to suffer? Martin's world is a complex one where nobody gets to keep their hands clean. And it gets muddier the longer it goes on. How do you guys FEEL about the more borderline(morally) characters? Are there characters that you HATE, that no matter what horrors befall them, you could never feel anything for?

    Remember book readers, NO SPOILERS...only allude to what has happened so far please.

    I am really really enjoying this season so far. Moreso than the second. I'm not sure if it's because of having to come down from season 1 or what, but the second season felt dry and lacking of any sort of oomph. This one feels a lot more alive. I always got the feeling that Jamie wasn't an "evil" guy so much as he felt there was a reputation that he had to live up to. He saw how Tyrion was treated and, in response, took up arms and became this man that he thought his father would want. Hell, you could even tell that he was scared of Ned in S1 when he jammed him in the leg. I think you're seeing more of his human side so far since he was captured and then "released". I've really dug his false bravado while he's been getting marched and Brienne's talk in the previous episode about his swordplay. It's like he's been stripped down and, without the crowds, he can just be the prancing Nancy he wants to be.

    But yeah, **** Joffrey.
