Me!!

there's so much to look forward to and dread

The Red Wedding, Tyrion's escape, Littlefinger and the moon door....

I can't wait.

Sugarice Sat 09-Mar-13 15:58:54

Yes excited here too, wonder if they'll stick with the red wedding as in the book?

dothraki Sat 09-Mar-13 16:04:20

Is the Red Wedding book 3? Wow, that seems so soon. Think they have some major character building to do before then. But yes really looking forward to it.

Nagoo Sat 09-Mar-13 16:44:47

Meeeeeeeeeee! I'm reading the last one now and watching season 2 on dvd. It's making me scrunch my nose everytime I see Theon.

FrankWippery Sat 09-Mar-13 16:45:19

I'm not....!

TrampyPants Sat 09-Mar-13 17:11:57

I seriously can't wait. I sob at the red wedding in the book, I dread to think how I'll cope with the show (I love Richard Madden) I'm guessing that they will end the series on the wedding, because they have Joffrey's wedding to squeeze in too. I feel sorry for Theon. He made a huge mistake and couldnt go back on it. by burning the letter he set in motion a horrible chain of events. I wonder who'll be Ramsay Bolton.

Me me me. I'm re watching season 1 at the moment. Is it worth reading the books too?

I'm in!!

CJCregg Sat 09-Mar-13 18:10:24

Oh, oh, OH. I am barely containing myself.

I heard that Ramsay Bolton was the guy who played Simon in Misfits???

I'm betting they won't end on the Red Wedding. They seem to put the big stuff into the penultimate ep.

TrampyPants Sat 09-Mar-13 18:14:04

It comes about halfway through the book, doesnt it? and its a demon of a book grin and yes, you are right, I have just googled. He look suitably psychotic...

We don't get Sky Atlantic. sad

dothraki Sat 09-Mar-13 19:31:54

ThreeBee - neither do we - we're just going to have to visit those that do grin - watch out !

me me me me me me me me me!

candice I had to pick up from book 3 as after watching s1 &2 I found the books a bit slow to get through knowing what happens. I then found books 3 onwards (I have lost count of how many there are) so utterly absorbing and all consuming - the level of detail and intricacies goes waaaaaay beyond the tv series.

DH is wondering if they will split book 3 in to 2 series as its a bit of a whopper (and obv sky/advertisers will want to milk it)?

SuckingDiesel Sat 09-Mar-13 19:50:55

My DD will appear (briefly) in this season. We spent several days on set but only filmed a couple of scenes.

SuckingDiesel Sat 09-Mar-13 19:53:01

As I understand it, they are splitting book 3 into 2 seasons although some scenes in S3 will be from the second part of Song of Swords.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sat 09-Mar-13 19:53:18

seriously impressed by that!!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sat 09-Mar-13 19:53:58

(the filming thing, that is...)

HappyJustToBe Sat 09-Mar-13 19:55:21

So, so excited!

TrampyPants Sat 09-Mar-13 20:06:21

I'm happy to host a GOT party!

Yes the third book is a whopper. And the red wedding makes sense as the last big story in that series, when you consider how close arya gets to cat and robb. I can almost see it.

Suckingdiesal, really? Wow! Seriously impressed!

SuckingDiesel Sat 09-Mar-13 21:10:51

Yes, really. Most of it is filmed locally. I know where the red wedding scenes were filmed too, although I wasn't on set for it (unfortunately).

Cast and crew were fab and looked after us really well. DD was only 8-10 weeks old when she was filmed so she won't remember any of it but it'll be a cool story when she's older smile

TrampyPants Sat 09-Mar-13 21:28:54

That's ace! Was she an extra then?

SuckingDiesel Sat 09-Mar-13 21:37:53

Yes, she was an extra. She got paid and everything grin And I got to spend time with some of the good men of the Night's Watch smile There are worse ways to spend maternity leave grin

TrampyPants Sat 09-Mar-13 21:42:53

Ooooh, did you see jon snow? Is he as lustworthy in rl?

CJCregg Sat 09-Mar-13 22:13:22

Is your DD Gilly's baby?? grin

dothraki Sun 10-Mar-13 00:40:44

Tortington Sun 10-Mar-13 00:42:29

Cooroo Sun 10-Mar-13 14:38:04

DP, DD and I are excited too! DD is 16 and this will be the first series we watch together - should be interesting... DP and I read all the books after series 1. I am so looking forward to Joffrey's wedding - DD hasn't read books so will absolutely delighted by the happy outcome. hope that's not a spoiler.

SuckingDiesel Sun 10-Mar-13 15:04:20

Trampy, Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) is very, very cute IRL but shorter than I thought he would be

SuckingDiesel Mon 11-Mar-13 17:31:58
