    I meant at the point of season 3 episode 10.
    Arya has been bouncing all over since she fled Kingslanding.
    Snow has been lost up north since before Rob even wed.

    I think I missed something, last I knew Snow and his wildling girlfriend were in the hotsprings getting one with nature, and then the next thing Snow is saying he had to leave and getting the pain of a wildling scorned delivered via carefully placed arrow tips.
    If Arya believes all her brothers dead, she has nothing to keep her from pusuiting the assasin's training. If she thinks they are still alive, then she might chase after them.

    I saw a few people complain ep10 was a disappointment. It was not as earth shattering as 9, but it did put many a pot on to simmer over the months until season 4 begins.

    I don't think it would have been good to let peoples last memories to be Red Wedding. I think they needed to show there are alot of other questions to be answered, that alot of other "favorite" characters that still live, and favorite villians to be put in their place.
    Leave it with Rains of Castemere, and people will think:
    "They killed them all off, what more is there?"

    I wonder in the end, how will my top three characters survive in the Game of Thrones?
    Dragon mama, Arya, and Tyrion. They can all three survive and succeed together.
    Although, Arya probably won't be in the Queens court.
    Wouldn't it be funny, Queen-Dragon mama, Hand of the Queen-Arya, Queens Captain-Tyrion.
    I bet, Tyrion would be a better politician then Captain of the guard.

    Brienne's one of my favorites. I wonder if she'll stick with Jamie now. I don't recall seeing her in Episode 10, but I imagine she was still with him.

    Yeah, episode 10 wasn't as memorable, but I would have hated the Red Wedding as a finale. I loved it as an Episode 9. Like the first season, that's a good place for the horrible shocker. While I don't like that the season ends mid-book, I don't resent it either. It's a long story, so there's no reason to complain that they split the book in order to film more story.

    I can always buy Storm of Swords. In fact, I almost did, but didn't because the season was about to end. Now that I know it ends mid-book, I think Storm of Swords is summer reading for me. I'm debating whether to start there or Game of Thrones, but since I know too much, I think I'll start with Storm of Swords, and if reading the televised bits does it for me, then I go back for the first two.

    I doubt name-changes will confuse me, since I did such a bad job keeping track of names. My wife had a name for Theon Greyjoy... which no longer applies to him. (PM me if you want to confirm whether your guess is almost right or exactly right.)

    SeverinR -

    Jon Snow has been 'in training' since the first season. Best way to think of *everything* he's been through.

    As to Ayra...your reasoning is good.

    Brienne just arrives in ep 10, so she doesn't know about the red wedding at the end of season...yet.

    Briennes quest was to take Jamie to Kingslanding to trade for Sansa and Arya. Sansa does not want to leave, last time it was offered, and with Red wedding, she has no where to go. Of course, Arya is not there, so her quest is complete, and she also is without direction. Maybe shift the loyalty to Sansa? Go in search of the lost Arya?

    The one episode I saw completely.

    Comic Con-2014
    Arya will be there. Autographs-$30
    While she has won many awards, I have doubts she will ever see
    a nominee on the Kids choice awards, because I doubt alot of kids watch GOT.
    Maybe with her new movie?

    Only one thing would make it even better,
    Arya and the Tyrion together at Comic con.

    I wonder if she would sign a Stark banner shield if I made one? Would probably make the shield 5 times more valuble.(of course it would add $50-65 to the cost)
    I wonder what a shield signed by all the Stark stars would be worth? (Sign character name and real name)

    Bought Storm of Swords today. USA to Hong Kong is a long flight, and for the two weeks I'm there, I want to take a vacation from my own creative projects. I'll read when I can. My daughters are 5, 3 and the baby's turning 10 months, so maybe it's more like 'if I can.'

    In any case, I'm not waiting for season 4 to see how the rest of this story goes. I'm too into it!

    I mean to save it for the plane ride, but the first Jamie POV already made me appreciate Brienne even more than I already did! She rocks!

    (Pun not intended, but I'm leaving it.)

    You are NOT taking an entertaining book to read on a long boring plane ride? What gives?

    Nothing gives. It is for the plane ride (this Saturday), but I had to crack it open today. I was by the pool. It was sunny. Perfect day for a post-swimming read! And I really wanted to see an awesome Brienne scene. It happened that she's there right after the prologue—and she is awesome! So I stopped myself from reading further, having achieved my goal within thirty-something pages. With 4th of July tomorrow and last-minute packing on Friday, I can hold out until I'm airborne.

    Remember, you'll need to pick up 'Feast for Crows' and 'Dance of Dragons' when you get back. Also, at least theoretically, 'Winds of Winter' should be available within a year.

    It likely won't be within a year, alas.

    San Diego Comic con - JUly 19 if you can attend.
    Samwell, Daenerys, Tyrion, Catelyn (Moma Stark), John Snow, Ygritte, and Robb, King of the North,
    and someone named George Raymond Richard Martin. (G.R.R.Martin)
    Will be in attendance and signing autographs.

    Announced on Facebook, I don't see it on the website:
    Comic-Con Front Page | Comic-Con International: San Diego

    If I could go to both, I would have three starks to sign...if I had my shield done.

    Now that I read Storm of Swords, a few things I wanna get off my chest:

    1. The Red Wedding - Why make it more tragic on the show than in the book?

    2. Spoiler needed for this one:

    Why bring Jamie back at the end of S3? Will he attend Joff's wedding? Seems like a careless move on HBO's part!

    3. Brienne and Arya are way more awesome in the book, and they were already awesome in the show.

    4. Despite the above being obvious 'the book is better' type comments, no biggie. Of course the book is better. I look forward to season 4! It'll be fun to go from watching-without-having-read to read-then-watched.

    5. Severin, get the books and join in on that fun!

    LS-

    Regarding the spoiler, that *might* have to do with 'removing a plot complication'.

    That said...looking forward to the next wedding? I sometimes wonder if there is a kid or ten in your school whom you think fits the 'groom' to a 't'.

    Going to pick up books four and five?

    I think it causes a plot complication, but I'm sure they'll work it out in S4.

    Wedding, wonder, books 4 & 5: yes, yes, and yes.

    Bought 1 and 2 Ereader(eyes aren't good enough to read hardcover)
    I am just before getting to the wall book 1, explanations are much better as to why things are. Would be hard to tell the viewer all the book shows the reader.

    Arya and Briene are better in the book? (So far Arya isn't much different then in the show, I think I liked Arya's arrow shot on the show better then the books showing of Arya's personalty.)
    Tyrion doesn't seem much different yet either, they do more to show why he acts as he does then the show though, and probably shows more inner turmoil then the show can.

    I think they're better in the sense that they've done more. Some scenes had to be cut, so we haven't seen all of their awesomeness on the show. As far as personalties go, I think the show nailed it with Brienne, Arya, Tyrion, and all the other major characters. In Storm of Swords, some scenes on the show don't happen in the book. Since GRRM is a consultant on the show, it's possible that some of the scenes (Theon's) were scenes he thought of that didn't make it into the book. There is mention (and evidence) of his flaying by Ryse Bolton, but no Theon POV. (Or is that from book #4, making seasons 3 & 4 a mix of books 3 & 4?)
