Yeah, time is a bit of an abstract concept at this time of year.

The whole thing is a bit long, but the "Disney villain" thing is here:

Yeah, I kind of want one too now.  Nod 

They're Mahlek Northern Inuit dogs apparently. At least the ones in the first season.

Talking about Dire Wolfs, this thing from the books always had me wondering.

Book 3, but the equivalent scenes have been covered in the series. :

Well Martin himself acknowledges that he was influenced by Tolkien and clearly holds him in high regard.

Oh, did you give it a look?  Smile 

Yeah, I find his opinions on Tolkien pretty interesting. He does credit the effect the deaths of Gandalf and Boromir in the the Lord of the Rings on him while reading it as a child as an inspiration on how he handles killing of characters in his own books. Though he likes to remark that if he had writen it Gandalf would have remained dead. Razz

Anyone else seen the Oathkeeper episode yet? There was a major reveal there even for book readers.

watched Oathbreaker episode. I really liked the first 3/4 but when they got to Casters Keep it got a bit grotesquerie and it put me off. I think they over did it a bit. Loved the Jaime/Brienne bit.

Figgs, I thought you stalled on reading the books, or are you getting all your book knowledge off the web? You're giving opinions on the boring storylines as though you've read it...

Yeah. I prefer not knowing myself. Smile  I did rather well on avoiding spoilers up until series 4, but I had managed to spoil two big things for me with series 4 before I even started the books.

What rather impressed me was Norc avoiding spoilers for the RW for what.. 10 months or something. Shocked
