The DVDs and Blu-rays look fantastic as usual, and it’s great that they’re putting them out earlier. Since the show is delayed in being released, there’s no sense in holding back, might as well get them out in time for that holiday rush. Plus we’ll have some great bonus features, new histories and lore, and assorted audio commentaries to tide us over until the new season next summer.

  1. We don’t have to wait until the next season to get the Blu-ray set? That is fantastic!

    Streaming is nice, but for my favorite shows and movies, nothing beats the high fidelity of Blu-ray or UHD….

  2. Awesome news. Can’t wait to get it.
    Hopefully with yet another Best Drama Emmy sticker in the package 😉

  3. Will go nicely with my collection, especially the season 3 box set blu-ray autographed by Isaac (Bran) and Kristian (Hodor)!!

  4. Finally some good news.The dvd looks so good I can’t wait.All of the features look exiting.How cool that Meera is narrating the Tourney at Harrenhall considering she is the one telling the story in the books.Plus it makes sense to put it this season.The commentaries look great especially nine and ten.Can’t wait to hear all of them.And watch the deleted scenes.One of them must be Brienne and Sansa talking about Tormund that’s got to be hillarious lol

  5. This is great news! I’ve been wishing they’d done this all along. I have a friend that I usually lend my set to for her to watch and she’ll be thrilled.

    Question… Does this mean that streaming services like Vudu that typically carry it will have it available on August 1st or do they need to wait until November 15th?

  6. At long last, we’re getting it when it should be released!

    The “Histories and Lore” this season is completely unbelievable. Probably the strongest yet. And the number of commentaries is just bonkers!

    And 4 deleted scenes, no less.

    Wow. What a package we’ll get this season.

  7. I’m surprised that Maisie isn’t doing a commentary or narration. Hasn’t she done a commentary every season?

  8. I’m a bit upset we won’t get another commentary with the Stark kids together for an episode.

  9. Whoa…

    histories & lore are mostly what I anticipated…

    but I thought we’d get “House Mormont” not “Norther Allegiances to House Stark”….

    …well maybe it’s a super-sized very long one, including any Mormont material.

    Plus…..Sansa has never narrated a video before!!!

    The “Tier A” core cost members are Jon, Daenerys, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Sansa, Arya. Of these, Jon, Jaime, and Sansa have narrated videos (as have Robb and Bran). So we’re still waiting on Daenerys, Tyrion, Arya.

    …”Summer Sea”? Wow…I’ve always hoped they’d devote a video to “okay, here are the islands of the Summer Sea that the show doesn’t really visit which have non-white people in them: Summer Islands, Naath, Basilisk Isles, and Sothoryos”. I guess they used Euron because he’s a character we know who probably *traveled* to each of them personally (Missandei is from Naath but hasn’t been to all the others). So that’s good.

    On first glance a robert’s rebellion by Jaime seemed redundant…..but I think maybe it will actually focus on the fact that *he knew Rhaegar*; that flashback scene from the novels when he begged Rhaegar to let him come to the Trident but he couldn’t. Also because we actually had a brief Bran flashback of Jaime actually killing Aerys.

    “Riverrun”? Don’t quite see the need….maybe it will span the gap for Brynden between Season 3 and 6. Well, still good to have more Blackfish!

    I never thought we’d get another Tourney at Harrenhal after Barristan’s last year but it makes sense to have Meera narrate it given that her father was there.

    I’m stunned they got Max von Sydow to narrate one. Epic.

    Overall, a great haul.

  10. Awesome History and Lore!

    Was hoping for Bella Ramsey (Lyanna Mormont) for Bear Island and House Mormont though!

  11. It’s a bit of a bummer that Emilia Maisie Carice Isaac Gwen or Alfie couldn’t make the commentaries but on the other hand my boys Davos and Edd together give it to me.Plus Miguel Sophie and Kit and D&D Lena and Peter are going to be so much fun.

  12. Well, this is a sweet surprise to wash away the bitter news we got earlier today!

    Love seeing all of those commentaries – I believe it’s the first time we’re getting one for every single episode! And some of this year’s installments in the Histories & Lore section sound exceptional. The Great Tourney at Harrenhal narrated by Ellie Kendrick? Yes, please (Nice little nod to Meera being the one who tells that story in ASOS). The story of the Children versus the First Men as narrated by Max von Sydow should be awesome as well. And I’m very curious to hear the one about the Sunset Sea, especially in light of Arya openly wondering “What’s west of Westeros?” this year.

    I’m also looking forward to the deleted scenes (even though, with one or two rare exceptions, I tend to understand and appreciate why they were deleted). Already got November 15th circled on my calendar!

  13. Jack Bauer 24,

    She must have had a conflict or something so Essie Davis stepped in.

    This is quite a haul and I can’t wait for it. Especially the 4 deleted scenes. I know there’s usually a reason why they’re deleted but I still love seeing them anyway.

  14. No isaac? Even for episode 5? Not even going to use Bran for any of the histories and lore narrations? Really??????????? What the hell does a guy have to do to get some recognition for once?

  15. Laura,

    I doubt Davis stepped in in lieu of Maisie; probably they would have wanted both of them. I’d also guess they wanted Rory McCann on the 607 track, but he wasn’t available.

    A surprising number of major cast absences this year from the commentaries, but then, the commentaries are pretty clearly recorded within a relatively narrow space of time, and anybody whose schedule doesn’t allow them to be there correspondingly doesn’t do one.

    Given the delayed release of Season 7, I figure they must have concluded delaying the release of the Blu-ray any further would just be commercially unwarranted.

  16. Looking forwards the deleted scenes, especially the one where Sansa is supposed to tease Brienne regarding Tormund’s looks.

  17. sam:
    No isaac? Even for episode 5? Not even going to use Bran for any of the histories and lore narrations? Really??????????? What the hell does a guy have to do to get some recognition for once?

    No Emilia for her huge episodes 4/9/10 is really bizarre too.

  18. ***Put a note in the main article:

    In interviews, director Jack Bender stated that they filmed *a lot* more of “The Bloody Hand” play than they actually aired, and planned to put them on the DVD release.

    on-screen, we only saw their version of “Season 1” and the beginning of “Season 4”. But other parts would cover the events of Seasons 2 and 3.

    I thought it might be a special feature like the “Dance of the Dragons” thing on the last DVD.

    But the point is, sometimes we get a “deleted scene” which is only 60 seconds long and totally forgettable.

    This time….from Bender’s comments, we might get a 5 minute long chunk of the play which was omitted purely for time constraints.

  19. sam,

    Wouldn’t worry about that. He probably didn’t have the time to do them. Could be another project or simply school. Same goes for Maisie. But he is going to be on Comic Con panel for the first time.

  20. The Dragon Demands,

    The show typically doesn’t bother including really minor bits on the DVDs, from what I recall. The show has few deleted scenes overall.

    Incidentally, looking at the art for the first time, I like (what we can see of) the solo character images inside packaging. I do find it a little odd, though, that the exterior art so prominently features the faces of characters who aren’t in this season. Obviously, it’s the pre-season art, but still.

  21. OMG!
    Bittersweet news!! …As far as I learned from Game of Thrones (TV SERIES) Whenever a character gets to narrate this stories, they are or will be death really soon… so I can´t say I feel happy to find out that most of my favourites characters will be dying during 2017 seventh season while winter has come! For starting the ones I have more expectations are :
    Lady Sansa Stark and Sir Jaime Lannister!!! I felt that their finally get their redemption time and maybe they leave us doing something brave!! but they are out of time (at least for me and if you dont believe me please review the stories that already have been realease and tell me who is still alive?)

    Shocking to find that Lord Varys is on the list too!! I know he did everything that was possible for the good of the realm and play it behind the scenes and save Tyrion and unfortunatelly couldn´t help our most precious one, Ned Stark! …but having him death? This will make me shed most than one tear that is for sure…
    Nothing will give me more pleasure to see Petyr Baelish death! I can´t wait to see him dying, I’m thinking he will be murdered by someone who is seeking for revange.. I can think in the young lord of the vale to avange his father and mother assasinations lead by this piece of little finger! or maybe Sansa will do it and she also dies on this matter, she is not a killer after all..
    Regarding Sir Jorah at least we are prepare for his definetalley fare well, we all know he is ill and we expect he can recover from this non cure desease but if he can not achieve the cure, it it will be sad but ok, at least he lives his life fully, at least he had his time to redeem himself, at least he told his Khalessi he loves her… I picturing his death defending Daenerys from Euron Greyjoy or something really bad, even if we don´t see him anymore, his story is almost done. Thoros of Myr is on the list too! What would happen? a death combat fight? the lord of light have his soul save.
    And Euron Greyjoy will be death, at least on the TV series they do not develop much of his character but we can tell he is not the nicest person alive.. I expect he will be murdered by Yara or Theon to avange their late father…

    Pardon my english! Love the blog all the way from Lima Peru

  22. The Great Tourney at Harrenhal: narrated by Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick)

    While we don’t yet know what exactly this covers, this would seem to bode ill for people speculating/hoping that events relating to this will be shown in flashback next season.

  23. Woohoo!!! Finally something to get excited about! All the features sound absolutely glorious & they have paired the actors for the commentaries almost perfectly. I love when Lena & Peter do a commentary together & Kit & Sophie commenting on episode 9 together is a dream come true. Can’t be more for excited for this & its coming out just in time for my birthday! Yay! 🙂

  24. Sean C.,

    Never thought they would show it anyway.Too big and too much trouble for so a story people already heard.If they want to establish Lyanna and Rhaegar as a couple a quiet scene between them in the Tower of Joy talking or whatever can do the trick just the same

  25. OMG!

    On the top of my head Bran, Jon, Jorah, Littlefinger and Meera have all narrated and are still alive! 🙂
    Of course that doesn’t mean that you can stop worrying.

  26. Vanessa: Whenever a character gets to narrate this stories, they are or will be death really soon

    Huh. I hadn’t noticed such a thing. Perhaps it’s just coincidence with having so many people killed off. If it is the case they’re getting down there on the number of major characters. If all of these living ones go in season 7 that’s a big blow. Every one of them do seem to be likely targets though. They’ve had (or will have) major roles in how the story has progressed but don’t feel like pieces that need to be there at the very end.

  27. No Jon cover? This is very disappointing, considering the fact that this was supposed to be his big season. Think I’ll pass.

    Only interested in Meera narrating the Tourney at Harrenhall and the House Dayne clip.

    “Northern Allegiances to House Stark: narrated by Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)”

    Lmao joke of the century

  28. War of the Ninepenny Kings: narrated by Brother Ray (Ian McShane)

    Hey, maybe all you nutbars will finally get the full broken man speech in Ian’s narration! 😛

  29. Jenny,

    That’s what I was thinking as well. The conversation could also reveal far more information than the tourney imo.

  30. Flayed Potatoes,

    Yeah that’s what I would like.It could clear up their relationship and what Rhaegar’s intentions were regarding prophecy and all that in just a few sentences

  31. Sweet! But come on you know you got to wait for that Series Collection!! I go back and forth about whether or not its even worth buying it… since HBOgo and all but im sure i will kick over the cash for that master collection.

  32. Flayed Potatoes: “Northern Allegiances to House Stark: narrated by Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)”

    Lmao joke of the century

    I thought the same thing when I read it. It goes something like this:
    “House Glover is pledged to House Stark, sworn to answer when called upon…. Uhh, no matter what has happened. House Mormont… They’re led by Lady Lyanna Mormont. She was named for my aunt Lyanna. Her mother was a great beauty. My brother Robb beheaded Lord Karstark, but Northerners are different and more loyal so House Karstark will support House Stark…. The North remembers the Stark name and they’ll risk everything for it.”

  33. Emilia Clarke must have the world’s most incredible agent. She’s now the highest paid person on the show and never has to do any of these commentaries anymore or appear at conventions anymore either. That’s pretty good negotiating by whoever represents her.

  34. orange,

    What is this that Emilia is the highest paid actor?I though all five a-tier cast were paid the same as has been reported several times.I very much doubt that she is paid more than Peter Dinklage in any case.

  35. One of the deleted scenes will probably be Olenna shouting at Mace as reported during filming. one is Sansa and Brienne I wonder what the other two will be. Probably unimportant though. Although seeing Kevan a bit more would be nice.

  36. Great News

    Goes some way to waiting longer for S7

    Looking forward to the deleted scenes

    We’ve seen some of the Behind the scenes and they were great

  37. Jenny,

    You’re right, the A-tier cast are all paid the same. Emilia earning the most is an unverified tabloid rumor (is there any other kind?) that some people are now spreading as fact. Of course she isn’t earning more than Peter Dinklage. Kit even moved up ahead of her in the opening credits shortly after the new salary negotiations were announced. A downgrade in billing doesn’t exactly jive with out-earning everyone, does it?

  38. Vanessa,

    Really? The actor who plays Bran narrated a bunch these stories in season one and he is still around. The actress who plays Meera narrated one in season three and she is still here.

  39. I’m not happy about Kit & Sophie commenting the Battle of Bastards… I wish it would be Kit & Iwan because Sophie’s latest interviews were so bad. F.ex. she called Jon Snow a sexist. She always protects everything Sansa does and doesn’t see her mistakes. It’s frustrating.

    I wish one of the deleted scenes would be the big “I died – I got raped” talk between Jon & Sansa. Or Ramsay preparing for the people or something.. he was there in the first episodes and then we didn’t saw him for many episodes…. and then he died. Wanted to see more of him dealing with his father’s death.

  40. So… The digital HD download stuff…
    Wont be on the blurays?
    thats quite annoying.
    I mean i pay for HBO and i always get the bluray but now all these things are exclusives for digital download?
    I love the show but not paying for it 3 times 🙁 I hope they understand that.

  41. sam,

    Isaac is going to Comic Con this year for the first time … and there is a special about Bran’s journey, maybe Isaac will comment there … I enjoyed his storyline last season. It will get better …

  42. orange,

    It’s not about her not having to do things, it’s that she’s busy. Last year she was filming a movie and promoting another back to back right during the commentaries time and convention time. This year same thing, she was promoting a movie in June and filming another one immediately after. She has yet another movie she’s scheduled to film this year. Some actors are busier than others. It’s not like she didn’t do her share of promo, she was on all the major talk shows this year.

  43. orange,

    Both of those websites cited The Daily Star (tabloid) as their source, even though no actual links to the Star are provided (because the article doesn’t exist). It’s the same gossip being circulated by a couple of sites, and neither the Mirror nor Express are exactly known for fact-checking. These are just quotes from a “source” that someone pulled out of their ass for a few easy clicks. All official sources (Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter, etc.) indicate that the top-five billed actors all earn the same salary.

    I do agree with you that Emilia’s got one of the most effective agents in the business, though. Just not that effective.

  44. Clob,

    Ever since The winds of winter I keep wondering one thing …what exactly did lyanna mormont said that is any different to what sansa said to house glover..
    What exactly changed other than Bolton defeated ..

  45. El-Bobbie,

    Its shocking she has other commitments that may keep her from appearing for GOT events..
    I kind of wish this rumor turns out to be true for the only reason to troll those sites who are trolling with this news..

  46. Sean C.,

    exactly and still people are mocking sansa but praising lyanna as badass..
    If anything what glover said about Robb was true and should have said the same thing to lyanna as well…

  47. The Wolves of Winter,

    Don’t worry. Lord Varys and Littlefinger had a co-narrating session past in season 4. Since then they have lost nothing but the ability to slowly waddle through time and space like ordinary men.

  48. Damn that was super cool of Ian McShane to do a DVD commentary and Histories and Lore after only appearing in one episode!

    Lena and Peter together can be pretty obnoxious together on those commentaries, couple them with D & D and I’m guessing that whole commentary will just be one big inside joke.

  49. Flayed Potatoes:
    No Jon cover? This is very disappointing, considering the fact that this was supposed to be his big season. Think I’ll pass.

    Only interested in Meera narrating the Tourney at Harrenhall and the House Dayne clip.

    “Northern Allegiances to House Stark: narrated by Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)”

    Lmao joke of the century

    Tyrion gets a cover for probably his worst season, but they skipped Jon, lol. It is a bit disappointing, as he probably worked the hardest and the longest for S6. Still, I don’t know if the writers intended this season to be his big one anyway.

    The H&L topics I am looking forward to are tourney of Harrenhal, CotF vs the first men and Sunset sea.

  50. Damn, that’s incredibly quick! I look forward to spending all my free time watching these on youtube, save my money for the actual bluray come november.

  51. Yey for the commentaries!! The covers of the last two seasons have been bad though.

    orange:
    Jenny,

    elybe,

    Well I got it from a few sites, such as http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/game-thrones-emilia-clarke-reportedly-8318908, or http://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-radio/685096/Game-of-Thrones-Emilia-Clarke-paid-more-Kit-Harington-Jon-Snow. Though, as you mention it’s by no means a fact. Though it does seem everyone got salary increases. Whether it’s true or not she makes more than any of them, who knows.

    LOL. This article starts with ” Source states that Emilia doesn’t hide she is getting paid more than everyone, they’re all a bit jealous” and ends with the only source “According to Deadline Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) will all earn over $500,000 an episode for next year’s season.”

    It doesn’t even make sense. I guess Emilia must be really popular in UK and they wanted the clicks..

  52. Judging by the way the dvds/ blu rays are placed only using three sides, does this mean this boxset will be even thinner than season 4 and 5?

  53. ghost of winterfell,

    This commentaries have little to do with who had a ”good” season or who worked the most.

    I have little doubt, one of the biggest factors is simply this: ”let’s see who has the free time”

  54. Mihnea,

    I was talking about the cover, not the commentaries. It could have something to do with not wanting to spoil his resurrection, on the cover itself, as Sam the Slayer said though.

  55. I guess it took a little shake up at HBO to realize they were missing out on holiday sales?

  56. ghost of winterfell: Tyrion gets a cover for probably his worst season, but they skipped Jon, lol.

    Even worse, they are using the whole faceless man motif for the external covers and I think Arya is still missing on there, lol!. Maybe she is on the back?

  57. I am so excited about this news!! Yippee, they just threw the dog a bone:) Great news if I start watching after the holidays and take my time I should be done just in time for the delayed S7…lol.

    Truly can’t wait!

  58. Clob,

    100% accurate.

    ghost of winterfell,

    If Jon doesn’t get a new Funko pop with his new clothes I’ll be annoyed. Bran also doesn’t have any pops. 🙁

    They’ve also been skipping Arya a lot in the DVD covers/posters, which is disappointing. Let’s not even mention how much they skip Bran. Very disappointing.

    Which season do you think will be Jon’s big one?

  59. Flayed Potatoes,

    I think S7 has potential to be his biggest season, now that he is king, if the writers use some of his Adwd learning to rule arc, or if Jon uses this opportunity, the power that he has, to be effective in a meaningful way. Plus, if he learns of his Targeryen heritage, that will give him some fantastic scenes, imo.
    From what we have seen so far, I would say S5 was his best season, with biggest character development.

    I agree, Bran has been sidelined way too much. I would love to see more Arya and Bran.

  60. Did anyone compiled the screentime for all the characters this season
    By this time it should have come up in imdb and westeros.org..iam surprised it still haven’t..

    It would be nice to see who got the most and least..

  61. dragonbringer,

    Oh yes this is what I want to now too.I’ve been looking around but haven’t found anything yet.I think the imdb page that has the screentime is updated through 6×10 but it’s for all the season so you can’t see how it went for season 6.I’m really curious actually.Who do you think had the most screentime?

  62. Jenny,

    It will be jon and sansa for sure. The north has been focus point of story for 3 seasons now ..

    Jon cersei sansa and tyrion and arya dany and bran and Jamie and theon in this order..

    There is actually a way we have total screentime till season 4 here
    http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/112748-a-game-of-screentime-season-4/

    And we have season 5 here

    http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/133064-official-season-5-character-screentime/

    So if we do subtract season 1- 4 and season 5 from that imdb lost for all 6 seasons…we may have our answer..
    But the problem is I don’t know that these three follow same method while calculating screentime..

  63. dragonbringer,

    Yeah, I don’t think all three used the same method to calculate screentime.
    This is what I got for the S6 screentime for the top 5 characters .

    Jon 44.67
    Tyrion 24.57
    Dany 21.67
    Cersei 17.7
    Sansa 40.8

    There is no way Cersei had only 17 min of screentime this season. She had more than 10 min in the finale itself. The number for Dany and Tyrion are also too less, imo.

  64. ghost of winterfell: Tyrion gets a cover for probably his worst season, but they skipped Jon, lol. It is a bit disappointing, as he probably worked the hardest and the longest for S6. Still, I don’t know if the writers intended this season to be his big one anyway.

    The H&L topics I am looking forward to are tourney of Harrenhal, CotF vs the first men and Sunset sea.

    they always have to put dany and tyrion on it, they rather should put her dragons on it then the character herself.

  65. ghost of winterfell,

    How nice of you to do that calculation …I was afraid it would have been different..

    And this is why I never do the calculation myself because k don’t know how they calculate this..
    If you ask me I will take the whole scene at one place as a screentime for a character ..some people like to take actually how many minutes the character appears on screen even in their own storyline..

    I guess we have to wait for some more time to know the actual screentime ..
    But I am sure the top 5 will be
    Jon
    Cersei
    Tyrion
    Sansa
    Arya
    Dany
    Bran
    Jamie

  66. I did the calculation for Cersei on youtube.It’s easy to count for her and it’s around 36 minutes.I want to do it for Jon but it’s harder for him because do I include the dead parts?Opinions may vary but the scene where he is resurrected should count I think.It’s about him.And Sansa does one include the scene at the wildling camp she is there but does it count?

    I agree that it will probably turn out as you said but I would put Jaime before Bran and Davos would be up there too.

  67. Jenny,

    Oh yeah I forget about davos he will be up there too.

    I also think his resurrection scene should be counted after all its about him. .
    Yes sansa at the tent should be counted if you ask me ..

  68. Using Arya storyline imagery but excluding her at the same time. Wow. Shouldn’t have put freaking Ned there.

  69. dragonbringer,

    Okay I did it for Jon and it’s around 89 minutes.Included the resurrection scene but not episode 1 stuff.I realized that’s a lot compared to Cersei.

    Ps:Didn’t include the few second of baby Jon haha

  70. Jenny,

    Lol no problem I do those mistakes many times ..just look at how much spelling mistakes I make sometimes due to spellcheck .

    Wow 90 mins I don’t think baby jon is going to do any serious damage to that number

    ghost of winterfell,

    Jamie profited more in later half of the season where bran took back step

  71. I don’t know about the screen time for everyone, but someone who does this as hobby counted how many words each character said this season.
    1 Tyrion with 2565 words
    2 Jaime with 1832 words
    3.Sansa with 1566 words
    4. High Sparrow with 1565 words
    5. Davos 1502 words

    Words by characters for all the seasons so far
    1.Τyrion Lannister 21318
    2,Cersei Lannister 12187
    3.Jaime Lannister 9496
    4.Jon Snow 8456
    5 Daenerys Targaryen 8047
    6.Petyr Baelish 7736
    7. Sansa Stark 6286
    8.Tywin Lannister 6119
    9.Lord Varys 6057
    10.Samwell Tarly 5571

  72. dragonbringer,

    Okay I’m going for the hard ones first lol.I did Sansa and it came around 64 minutes.I think the battle stuff is giving Jon an advantage.I’ll do Dany next

  73. Maggie,

    I think words give us an idea about how much the character is actually written and appears in the scene..

    Good work ..

    Jenny,

    48 mins and 52 mins not bad at all..
    Yeah battle does give him an advantage not only this season but last two seasons..
    But sansa does overtake both tyrion and dany by a lot

  74. dragonbringer,

    Yeah and Jon would take Sansa and Dany and Tyrion without the battle I think he would be at 71 min.Tbh there are some scenes where Sansa just stands around like in the wildling camp where Jon is recruting them but I included them.And Arya has an advantage because of the play stuff

  75. misterpotah,

    Arya is the only character you can’t really say this.

    Her stay with the BWB was shortened in S3 but we got much, much more of her and the Hound.

    And in S6 the world building was mostly cut, everything else was there.

  76. Jenny,

    Wow so arya is actually appears 5 mins less than dany ..I thought she sure would be ahead of dany ..i guess last two episodes helped dany..
    The problem with sansa standing ..i guess we will be seeing lots of that coming season as well …with characters meeting and converging some will just have to stand and listen and others talk..

  77. Jenny,

    Lol so jamie and Davis are actually ahead of dany arya ans cersei ..
    Poor bran he didn’t have enough to do in the second half
    Nice work jenny

  78. misterpotah:
    Maggie,

    Seeing how Arya is a much bigger character in the books, she’s been robbed in the show.

    I don’t think we can really say that for her Braavos arc as it pertains to number of dedicated pages. We’ve yet to see how much George spends on her in TWoW, but at this point the readers only have five Arya chapters in the last two books and the released “Mercy” chapter from the next. That’s all of her in Braavos. Yeah, they could have had her run into Sam and/or expanded her training more from what was written she was learning. Still, the written material was limited and it could have gotten repetitive. She’s my favorite character by far so I’m really hoping both George and D&D get her going the rest of the way.

  79. Jenny,

    I never expected Davis that high and tyrion that low..
    Sam had a huge screentime in that one episode ..which will be same to sandor as well..
    Good work

  80. dragonbringer,

    Thanks Davos has so much by proxy of being with Jon but he also had a lot during the first two episodes when Jon was dead.The one that surprises me is Cersei I double checked because I couldn’t believe she wasn’t higher.

  81. Why do people think the DVD is coming out so early? Do you think something else (I don’t know what it could be) will be coming out around the start of next year? It just seems a bit weird that the year that the season release is later…. they bring out the DVD earlier… What am I meant to do after watching all of this! I’ll still have 6 months to wait for more GoT!!!
