I don't think it is a spoiler; the necklace Sansa gets from them is very prominent in both the show and the books. The grandmother fiddles with it just before the poisoning and you see a stone is missing after. And the knowing and unphased looks they give each other when they find out about Joffrey's true nature, in a "well we know what needs to be done" fashion. To me it was obvious it was them right from the start. Though come to think of it I don't remember if it is ever explicitly said anywhere who killed him.
Though I guess you have figured out it wasn't Tyrion at least.
Seriously? I never thought he did it, but maybe that's just me. Or maybe the way it is written in the books gives a different perspective. I think the wedding itself may actually be in one of Tyrion's own chapters, so it is therefore obvious it is not him. Not sure.
As you are such an avid reader I must say I am surprised you are going the way of the show instead.
But I guess I will stop commenting here as book readers have a different perspective on the show overall, and I wouldn't want to spoil more.
So... we just finished watching Episode 3 of Season 5 last night, and my husband turned to me and said he thought the whole thing is becoming too misogynistic and morally bankrupt to want to continue watching. He's no prude and not squeamish, but I think he's got a point... I really don't want it to be the case but I'm struggling a bit at the moment, and from what I've heard it gets worse. I know there's a really difficult scene coming up.
We will carry on with it of course, but I'm really not enjoying this one as much as the last.
I can see why many people enjoy it and it is pretty unique compared to the usual churned out programmes, but I just cannot engage with it, I think mostly because it is just so extremely slow-paced and the things that so many find shocking are just unconvincing to me.
Jo seems desperate for me to like it. I've only seen 5 episodes but I just feel no need at all to find out what happens next.
Like I may have mentioned somewhere I like historical dramas, but the ones based on or even including real people and events get my goat as they always take liberties with stuff. GoT has a real medieval feel (with some minor magic), but is not only fiction, but also not even in this reality, so it is perfect in that sense. I do find it largely believable, though. Could you give an example of something that was unconvincing?
I kinda just want to discuss it for hours. But I know that quite a few people are not caught up on the latest season yet.
Once I am done with my Buffy/Angel marathon I might start up on Game of Thrones again from the beginning. Approximately 290 days until the next season, that would be... what, an episode every 4.8 days if I started now to just have it re-watched by then?

I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
I fully intend to get the DVDs, but the problem is that buying them while the show is still ongoing is risky, as I want a matching set. I have been burned before by publishers that discontinue the visual style of the series half-way through, and then I have a grouping of books that don't match on my shelf, unless I re-buy the first few books again. I have since not dared to do that with DVDs, and instead waited until the whole show is out. But this time, I don't know... The temptation is strong.
Shallow, I know, as the content is the same, but it still bothers me about books I have had for 20 years. Not so much an issue these days with books as I almost only buy e-books.
