    Oh I can't wait to see how they do the end of this season.

    Edit: I'm on book 4 right now, so I know what'll happen, but I can't wait to actually see it!

    I feel like episode 9 was more of a traditional HBO "finale" for a season, but this finale will make everyone impatient and read the books.

    3 cheers for promoting literacy HBO and 500 points for flame boobage.

    I thought it would've been cooler if she came out of the fire rather than that morning after scene. Isn't that how it happened in the book?

    SPOILERS


    I thought the dragons were supposed to be suckling at her breasts, which I think would have made that last scene a touch more dramatic.

    OMG awesome, I was wondering how HBO was going to end the season. I've read the book but haven't watched a single episode. And yes, you are correct in your assumption and I agree it would have been a bit more dramatic...if not risking some cheese factor, they would have had to been very tactful about it

    Oooooooh Hoooo Hoooooo Hoooooo Woooooo!!!!!!!
    ^^^^
    I think thats right. I think thats how I felt after the last episode ended. Add clapping.
    Mind you, this is coming from somebody who has not read one page of any book or looked at any of the maps or legends that may be available helping guide viewers. I also have stayed away from this thread more than anything. The result was a truly new chapter in the story unfolding every seven days. Isnt it impossible to talk about the book without giving away spoilers? Maybe there should be a seperate thread exclusively for the people who want to talk about the books.

    All of the episodes were great for the most part, and this one might have been the best. Everybody will remember the ending, but almost every single scene was memorable. WOOT!

    And I cant forget this:
    from the blood of Velouria (!)

    I'm in the middle of book 2, and they mention Valyrian steel a lot, but I am not sure what/where Valyria is.

    I believe valyrian steel is royal/enchanted steel from the Targeryan era of rulers, dragon forged perhaps?

    Wow I just felt like I went back into WoW with that sentence.

    If I remember right it wasn't just "walking out of the fire". She stood there engulfed in flames as the eggs hatched. That would've been a sweet image.

    Like what was everyone doing before walking over to her the next morning?

    Maybe they all passed out. Who knows? I'm not sure if I liked the way they did that, but it was awesome that she was naked with the dragons like in the book.

    Really, really enjoying this show. Spring of 2012...Ughhh...

    I haven't read any of the books, and I am not sure I want to read them because I want to have the surprise of the show. That being said, I wouldn't mind reading what I have already seen. So, how closely does the show follow the books chronologically? Is the first season the first book, etc?

    Penultimate episodes are often the climactic ones in big HBO series. Finales are often a time for the characters to reflect and to set up for next season. The Wire, Deadwood, Sopranos (as great as GOT is, these shows were all superior)... they all have seasons that follow this pattern.

    A few words of advice for my fellow dorks: first, you don't need to wait, just buy A Clash of Kings and dive right in. Your brain can probably survive the strain of a book. And when you hit the first Tyrion scene within the first 50 pages, you'll be glad you took the risk.

    Second, if you want to reward Exec. Producer D.B. Weiss for his wonderful job adapting the series, then buy his 2003 novel "Lucky Wander Boy." It's about a fictional 8-bit video game and it's terrific.

    The Burning Man-inspired twist on the dragon-birthing sequence - complete with a woozy morning-after - was perfect.

    I've read it, but what Tyrion scene in first 50 pages are you refering to...? Don't forget to "spoiler" color it as to not ruin it for others, I just can't seem to think of which scene are you are talking about

    The Wire, Deadwood, Sopranos. Probably my favorite television shows ever, in that order. I think Game of Thrones' first season is comparable, if not better than the first seasons of those shows. I didn't know a single person who watched season one of the Wire and declared it the best television show ever made (which it is.) It's a little early to be judging GOT against great shows with multiple seasons to their credit. Time will tell.

    I think the fact that it is an adaptation of a crazy epic w/ a limited budget, that some of the storylines are rushed, that these big battles occur without us getting a glimpse... that stuff adds up to inherent inferiority vis-a-vis the original works of the HBO holy trinity. Also, I disagree that GOT S1 lives up to its counterparts in the other series.

    But GOT is extremely fucking great, don't get me wrong.

    swap Deadwood with Six Feet Under and we're in agreement. Deadwood (and Carnivale) i also consider damn fine TV (maybe even masterpieces...) but without having finished their runs properly, i don't think you can call them the best things HBO have ever put out. I'm hoping GOT ends up having a long run (like Wire, 6FU, and Sopranos) and not a short one like Deadwood and Carnivale.

    Fair point about Deadwood being unfinished. Deadwood I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down.
