Game of Thrones > Game of Thrones Review: "The Pointy End" > Comments Page 2
Ned is about 35 in the book, I'm not sure the series mentions his age, but around 50 would be my guess (that was Bean's age during filming). Also the book states the age of Bran and Rickon at 3 and 7 at the beginning, and the series states they are 6 and 10.
I really doubt they have changed the ending--at least, not the important parts. There are things that happen that are intrinsic to the story-telling.
All I can tell you, without being spoilerish, is that every character is written in shades of gray. There's no absolutely good or evil main characters, for the most part, and there's no one side to be rooting for, either, for all sides have their bad faces...
Haven't read the book yet, but the show is absolutely on top of my list. Wonderful stuff.
I think Tyrion is absolutely fantastic and he almost pales Ned Stark himself. We saw very little of Ned this week and I did not even mind it.
I agree Dany and Drogos are scorching the screen. Great chem.
I have no clue how the show ends, but i have a strong feeling some of the major characters will die. Am i right in this perspective? Do the book readers think they will change the ending's perpective as compared to the book?
I have been with you the whole time about the Direwolves! This time, I was glad that they were in there but I was also mad. In the book, Ghost actually fought the Whitewalker b/c Jon didn't have a sword. I understand they wanted to have a good fight scene in the show but it could have been a good action packed scene if Jon hadn't locked Ghost out. I disagree with you when you say that Ghost, "save Jon and the Commander of the Night's Watch." In the book, he did. Not in the show. I've always been impressed with how the book has translated fantastically on the screen. It just frustrates me when they write certain things like that out. I mean, George RR Martin actually wrote this episode I noticed. I wonder why he felt it necessary to write that out. Also, with Grey Wind, in the book Robb commanded Grey Wind to attack the man. I wish we had seen that.
I guess I just love the direwolves so much from reading the book. This series has done such a wonderful job with translating
No word about Drogo ripping off the tongue of his soldier? That was a "WTF? Did he just do that????" moment. I was pleased with seeing the Wall more and the direwolves scenes were great. I want more Arya, Maisie Williams is so great playing her!
Robb does not look 15 (or was it 16? I know it's less than 18) as he was written to be so in the book. I am glad because it is still hard for me to grasp the idea of an 15 years-old leading an army of 18,000 strong. Most importantly, he looks capable as the leige lord or Winterfell and determined to deliver winter to the Lannisters.
The scene with Hodor was weird as well as the chemistry between Oasha and his manhood?
If all the Stark children have been aged up, then why hasn't Bran? He's about the same age he was in the book, I'm thinking. They looked the same age in the scene and that really threw me.
But I believe you!! I wish I had a mind like a steal trap. Instead it keeps stuff like the Lysa scene in there. Let it out....let it out!
Rickon Stark is not 3, he's 6 years old as they have stated earlier in the series. Most of the kids have been aged up by 3 years from their original ages in the book.
I love everything about GOT..I never want it to end its like a movie to me. I am in love with Dany nd Drogos love she sure changed him. I too wish they showed more of the faithful direwolves so I was very pleased to see more of them this week.
Looking forward to next week as always!!
I wanted Catelyn to smack the hell out of her sister and that child of hers SOOO badly!
PS: I have to agree with you: i'm looking foward to any Dany/Drogo scene now. They are FIRE on my tv screen. I love them.
Yes many characters have been aged up. Catelyn was only 35 in the book, and Ned is even younger than her. But in the show they apparently at 40s or 50s.
"tell me that Lannister spy didn't look like Tom!"
This was all I was thinking every time that guy was in the shot.
Yeah I was a little disappointed in the title scene but I think it's just because I was expecting it to be the climax and for it to be heavier on the artistic side, and instead it was like a low key intro to the episode. I could see myself liking it more in the future. It was kind of rushed but it sort of made sense visually. All that stuff going through Arya's head could be happening as she's getting the hell out of there.
They said earlier he's 6. All the stark children and Daenyrs have been aged up
