That my favorite characters get killed or that Natalie Dormer thing?:)
That your favorite character is always getting killed.
I was rooting for the Starks, in the beginning. Sansa isn't much hope.
Maybe they can call their long-lost relative Tony Stark. :D

I'm #teamstark as well. If it was a typical story, the long arc would ultimately be about their redemption & resurrection of the family from the brink of extinction; however, I seem to recall seeing/reading something from GRRM that cast some doubt on that happening. Something about how the good guys don't always win. It was a while back so I don't remember if there was anymore context to it. Maybe he was talking about the microplot (various characters dying) and not the macroplot. Recently, I saw some spoilers/fan theories from further ahead than I've read so I really don't know.

Well, I believe in the books Arya goes on to be blind and living/working for some sort of faceless organization.
At least that's what I've heard.
Bran is lost in the north with his crazy friends looking for a crazy three eyed bird, and the other boy that hasn't died (?) we (or I) haven't seen in a long time. And Sansa is living with the craziest/luckiest Villain Sue of all time.
Oh well, I've also read someone (?) raises their mother from the dead for revenge.
Oh my... I need to get again watching to brush up on names!

Mr. Martin is a writing genius ! His books are amazingly written and HBO has done a really good job of bringing the books to life! I have decieded to stop reading the books until the show is over and the series is completely written though just so I can fully enjoy both equally.

The last one Mr Martin released.
My issue was last season (4) was getting off the books and I was a little confused and I am a little concerned he may not finish them . So I have decided to enjoy watching them for now and continue reading when he finishes the series. ( I recommend that to everyone else as well)

Just finished Season 2.
The first half was a bit dull, too much exposition and setting up.
The second half was brilliant.
Will be getting Season 3 tomorrow or the next day.

Just finished watching season 3.
Best one so far, the first two had slow starts but good endings, this series had an excellent start and the red wedding was terrific, though the final episode seemed to be more about setting up the next series which seems to be their way of doing things.
