Okay, so I haven't been watching Game of Thrones as much as I "should".

I don't know these characters. I barely grasp the setting. Motivations, reasons, plots, and politics I have no idea about as far as this show goes.

I just caught the newest episode. Ya'll have my attention now.

Spoiler:
That was fucking brutal. Now if I had been watching longer and knew the characters better it probably would have been worse, but as brutal and horrible as it was... a part of me just went "Par for the course."
I felt more sorry for the girl who saw the wolf in the cage get killed.

Have you seen all the episodes?
Spoiler:
That was her brother's wolf she saw get killed, therefore it would be an easy connection for her to make that he was also killed along with their mother

Not including this episode I've seen three or four other episodes, and those where the ones before this one.

As for how much attention I've been paying to it. Something about the blood of kings having power and everybody is trying to get some. Including using leeches. The girl was being taken back to her family and obviously that didn't go well.

There was another wedding from what I can tell was an attempt to get the rowdy dwarf prince to settle down so his nephew, who is to be king, doesn't have to worry about getting in the way later. I guess. The nephew seems like a prick and I can't wait for when he gets stabbed in the back in some way.

No I haven't read the books either so I am going in blind.

Spoiler:

The blood of kings thing is just Stannis and Melisandre, really; they've got some theoretically-holy magic from the latter's god, R'hllor, and are using it to strike back at Stannis' enemies (the three "pretenders" to the Iron Throne, which is theoretically his by birthright - Robb Stark [dead king from the Red Wedding, who rebelled against Joffrey to free and then avenge his father and who tried to claim the north for his own by seceding from the Seven Kingdoms], Joffrey Baratheon [the prick nephew, product of incest and with no actual claim to the throne apart from the fact that he's sitting on it and has the strongest family], and Balon Greyjoy [who hasn't appeared this season IIRC, and is head of the vikings, who sensed weakness in the north and decided to rebel]).
I'm not going to try to explain the whole plot, because it's REALLY long and complicated - suffice it to say, if you liked that episode, you should catch up from the beginning and then keep watching, because there are more crazy shenanigans on the way.

Hmmm, based off "A Song of Fire and Ice."

I knew not reading those books would bite me in the ass, as I knew not watching Game of Thrones from the start would.

So I'm watching the season finale right now cause it's on. A few summaries and looking over just what happened last episode, I'm a bit more in the know.

I am rather enjoying this show. Ehehehehe.

I remember a joke that I saw in a comic around a year ago. A character ask why somebody was in shock, to which another said "I asked if so-and-so was dead yet." which put the other character into shock.
The artist comments at the bottom was, "If you haven't read the books and are a fan of the show, don't grow attached to anybody."

We are very thankful for your sacrifice Adder. Makes you feel any better I don't have HBO anymore so I couldn't watch it either.

Thanks Adder. Methinks we were all freaked out that session on what you were going to do with us, especially when you made note of this.

Um... Never had HBO, but do they do encores of the primere? Or is it just the fact that you missed out on the original primere that makes you suffer?

I loved the recap at the start of the episode. Just a complete mess of scenes completely out of order. I was laughing by the end of it since, honestly, how could that mishmash of ever helped anyone? :P

I always think of recaps as not so much "our story so far" but "here are the arcs we'll be looking at in this episode!" Which doesn't make them better, mind you - if anything, that's kind of insulting to the viewer, though I suppose "our story so far, for those short on memory" is also pretty bad - but it is probably practical.

To be fair when they showed all the pivotal scenes with Ice it lent that much more weight when you see Tywin melting the damn thing down to forge two new swords. No words are said but the viewer gets it instantly from the playback. This was Ned Sword, Ned was executed with his own sword, oh hey here's Tywin melting down Ned's sword to make new shinny swords.

From what I can tell based off of secondhand knowledge, Tywin constantly complains about being surrounded by idiots, but one time he does intereact with one of the smarter characters, he doesn't take her along with him, instead pretty much giving her a suicide mission serving Gregor. It's a good thing in the long run, but still, I kinda wanted to see more intereaction between him and Arya. He's a bit of a jerk, isn't he?

Now as for the girl, she really needs to keep her head cool. Can't really avenge your family if you're dead not being able to fend off the buddies of the guy you just killed, eh? Here's to hoping she turns out as much as a BAMF as Ezio and others.

Btw, how did y'all get interested in this series?
My spouse just came over to me one day and insisted I should watch this one scene in the show. I wonder if anyone can guess what it was?
Anyway, after I stopped laughing I watched the entire series up to that point over the course of a couple weeks and laughed even harder when I had context  Chicken

With your sense of humor, I'd say the infamous 3rd season finale.
As for me, I heard of ASoIaF first when I started  Wheel of Time, then read the title of the first book, and remembered that it was an HBO series. Still haven't seen an actual episode, mostly bits and pieces, accompanied by the Trope Recaps.

With all that implies
There were things I waited for... for years to see onscreen. I've waited since 2007 for some of this stuff to come to fruition.

I've got only a week left for my second favorite moment in the series.

Friend introduced me to the books when only the first 3 were out, IIRC. We thought it was unfilmable back then. :P

I heard of A Song of Fire and Ice years ago. I forget from who or where. Wasn't until after the second season of the show that I figure I'd actually start watching it, kinda like how I was for Walking Dead where I didn't start watching till after the second season mid-finale, and it still wasn't until midway through the third season that I actually started watching Game of Thrones.

For those wondering about who snuffed the King everything you need is contained in the episode...

Or you could click this handy breakdown. We should not get confirmation in the show until episode 4 or 5.

...it was more of a question of how, for me.
Who was responsible, I would think, was pretty obvious throughout.
