    Funnily enough, that's exactly what I'm going to do to you and two or three other people when\if the next book comes out.

    @nickthegun why spoil it for yourself on the off chance it will upset someone else?

    Because, believe it or not, I dont mind spoilers. I think quite often they enhance my enjoyment of things.

    That and the fact that im incredibly petty.

    If I can stand in Smiths and read the last few pages of Harry Potter and the Whatever just to text 'Snape Kills Dumbledore' to my own brother, I think this is pretty much a done deal.

    So me doing it on purpose is a terrible thing, but you cunts doing it consistently for the last three year without even realising what you are doing, showing the self awareness of Rain Man is fine?

    Also, to add context to my previous post, the war started when I was about to walk out of the door to see The Sixth Sense with my then GF and he shouted 'Bruce Willis is a ghost' to me.

    I've half a mind to PM major spoilers to assholes in the TV threads who scream "Book Cunts!" at any mention of pen and paper, it's that tiresome.
    Then stay out of the TV thread and let the TV watchers enjoy it?

    Go to /r/asoiaf for you discussion - it's better there for weird theories anyways.

    Never said you posted spoilers, I was offering a suggestion so you could enjoy discussion with hundreds of people who have read the books.

    Or stay here and be a prick about it, your choice.

    Again, I never said you did post spoilers.

    Just pointing out a source of fun Game of Thrones discussion which you might enjoy. And that you are currently being a prick.

    Reddit subforum for book discussion, but a lot of TV discussion goes on in there too.

    They nailed the trial IMO.

    The Asha/Yara + Ramsay stuff was silly. She can take out a guy from miles away with a hatchet but she couldn't do the same to Ramsay as he moved to unlock the cage? Silly.

    Anyway, I guess we have our solution for Jorah getting sent away by Dany. Tywin's letter will have conrete proof of Jorah's spying past, so he'll get sent away by Dany. Possibly episode 10, but it looks like they're doing "only Cat" next episode, so maybe they'll do it earlier and have Dany's season climax being chaining up the dragons.

    So how did Tyrion upset Cersei in the books? (Someone mentioned it in the TV thread).

    Remember a bit that talked about how she looked after him as a baby after their Mum died. However i have completely forgotten how their family relations became estranged.

    His Mum died giving birth to him, she blames him for it
    He sent Myrcella away
    She's generally paranoid and suspicious of him
    She's a cunt

    I just googled it and I remember now. It certainly has not been discussed in the show.

    Interestingly Tyrion would have no idea why Cersei hates him.

    @ubergine

    It is in book 4:

    There is a prophecy about Cersei and how a more beautiful, younger woman will take her place. Apparently that prophecy also includes Tyrion (or possibly Jaime but she discounted him).

    Wonder how many episodes they will show Arya's initiation into the faceless cult. The books spends a lot of time on it, same goes for Bran and his quest.
