    there were strong suggestions in the book that they were gay... but i don't recall it being said outright. there certainly wasn't the confrontation with margery.

    I must have been oblivious to the suggestions that they were gay... I just remember Renly being loved but do not remember reading about any interactions between Renly and Loras. *SPOILER*
    I guess it doesn't matter much anyways since Renlys life is short lived in book 2

    Yes, we as readers, all knew he was gay.

    My reaction to this episode.

    Holy fuck it's Polliver! We'll see the Tickler next episode I bet!

    I've never read the books but I remember it being made fairly apparent that renley and the flower dude were an item right from the episode where they introduced him.

    Yes it was made very clear in the first episodes. I am speaking of the books.

    I was completely oblivious to the hints. I re-read a few bits. Definitely hinted but never confirmed directly. Although I was always wondering why he had a "Rainbow Guard"

    I am also very excited for the next episode and hoping to see the Tickler, creepy bastard.

    For what its worth, I read through nearly all 5 books before I learned about them being gay. In fact, I read book 1 three times (over the course of...what...10, 11 years?), and book 2 twice. When I saw those two being gay for each other in the tv series I immediately got on google.
    Sure enough, apparently there is plenty of evidence sprinkled (pun) throughout the first couple books. I even found a website that had a compilation of every single bit of evidence pointing to their romance.
    Guess that went WAY over my head...

    In your defense, there is a lot going on in those books.

    I am glad I wasn't the only one. I was starting to wonder.

    Alright my sweet summer children,
    I'm off to that annual orgy of debauchery and debasement (and often some blood) that I simply cannot do without (and pretty much the only thing I'd miss a live episode premiere for)...

    Joff's nameday tourney??

    No, you camel's cunt, Coachella!! where Winter Never Comes! (except last week, apparently)

    Time to party like a Lannister!





    I heard even Jon Ho's gonna be there!



    Keep yo weed hidden from the Gold Gloaks, pray to R'hllor that Shagga Likes Axes doesn't conflict with The Painted Dogs, and try not to father too many bastards!

    (and oh yeah, if they can create a holographic Tupac, definitely watch out for shadowbabies this week!)
    No, don't, don't cut my hair, Ned loves my hair.

    flew through Season 1 and lovin this show, especially the new Hand of the King tale teller extraordinaire. Won't bother with the books as did that age of novel a long time ago and have others already lined up. Hope to catch all up this week.

    Wow what an episode, so many good scenes - I feel like from now until the finale it's just gonna be a full-out sprint.

    I have to say I almost always enjoy the added-on scenes as much if not more than the canon scenes, Joffery's was especially chilling.

    I hate Joffrey more in the show than I do in the books.

    The Tickler never asked about Lord Beric, just the brotherhood. I think that's probably because the TV audience probably wouldn't know who Lord Beric is.

    Mel has amazing tits.

    How is "plenty of evidence sprinkled" a pun here?



    I fucking love this show - it's the best thing currently on TV and will be until Louie returns. I am, uh, historically unkind to most works with fantasy overtones, but this shit is just great.

    Agreed. I am thinking of bringing my cable box into work to start watching it in our theater.

    I actually get irritated when the fantasy/magical elements intrude. They're so unnecessary.

    Well, I rather like Daenerys', uh, little ones. But I wouldn't care if I didn't love the storytelling so deeply.

    The Daenerys actress is so much more than her ta ta's.

    You're right (and I think Jack understood, at least), but I should have seen this coming.

    Kinda pissed that they offed the Tickler, since that ruins some upcoming epic stabassery, but damn, those last two episodes were fucking tops.
