    Holy Shit! That White Walker gif is awesome!

    Confession, I have a big Bronn crush. My husband would ridicule me for it so I make him think that I think Bronn's just smartass funny but alas there is something more carnal there. Glad they've given him more 'screen time' than in the books.

  • mja0110

    Davos didnt have 9 fingers. he had the first joint of ALL the fingers on one hand removed (and it depends on if your are talking book or show as to which hand)....

  • Petrino00

    hey! i liked that whore!

  • DeadBessie

    God, I love those baby dragons.  LOVE them.  I'm seriously thinking about making my cats wear little dragon suits.

  • Love love love love LOVE this post. 

  • PDamian

     Figgy, is your avatar Mafalda? Love her!

  •  YES! She's my favorite.

  • Turd Ferguson

    I miss Bronn!

  • Aegon

    Technically R'hllor, who Melisandre worships, is a seperate god. When people say "the new gods" they're referring to the 7 worshipped by the Andals who conquered Westeros. The southren people tend to revere the 7 while the north keeps the old gods who were there before men showed up when the land was inhabited by the children of the forest. R'hllor, the Drowned God, the Faceless God of Bravos, and others are all seperate from this and generally not Westerosi.

  • Trolling_But_Correct


  • FourEyespartdeux

    And then you had to show me Drogo again. I'm still grieving!

  • Tao

    Instead of nine fingers for Davos, it should be 'fewer fingers' - a great piece of characterization by the writers, and Stephane Dillane owned it.

    The Talisa rehabilitation movement starts now; she does not deserve scorn. We have till the Red Wedding - and what the f are they going to do, given the change in plot they've taken on here.

  • Your definition of "good" hair is when it's pulled so tight your scalp bleeds, and "bad" hair seems to just mean hair that is not tied up too tight.  I think you may have some control issues, JoRo.

    Is this the appropriate place for me to declare that I MISS DROGO!!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Oddly enough, I do, too, after watching the finale. In these few minutes, Momoa showed more range than in 7 seasons of Stargate: Atlantis and Conan together.

  • Logan

    You guys settle an argument for me is Dinklage or Headey the better actor? At the forum i always hang out at I say Dinklage is OWNING this show, but a few people say Headeys Cersei is much better. I say Cersei is a one note character she's cunty, and would kill anyone except her kids. Whereas Tyrion i argue is a transformational character that goes from comedy relief to heroic which is much harder to do than play a bitch.

    What say you all?

  • Forbiddendonut

     It's Dinklage.  By quite a wide margin. 

    That said, I like Headey more than most and think she really improved from season one to season two.  I thought she was great this season.  Really, really great.  But Dinklage is the man. 

  • Logan

     Well technically he's the Half-man. :)

  • PDamian

    Jaqen H'ghar has no bad hair days. A man has no need of grooming when a man has a shocking white streak in fiery ginger to frame his handsome face. A woman approves and wishes for more.

  • mona_sterling

    Clean-cut Jamie Lannister does nothing for me, but bearded filthy kingslayer is purty.

  • e jerry powell

    45.  Because Peter Dinklage is 100% bangable. And that's 2% more than Sean Bean.

  • AnnArrogance

    As much as I love the 41 reasons you listed, I was really hoping for just 41 GIFs of Tyrion bitch-slapping Joffrey.

  • Mayra

    I seriously hate that people don't like Ros. She's like GoT's Joan Harris.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I am crying on the inside... I miss it all...

    When is the new season?

    Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

  • celery

     Not enough Arya!

  • Ashamed Anonymous

    I'm going to be the biggest and most pedantic  nerd in the world and say Davos shouldn't be labeled "Nine Fingers". He has 10 fingers. Stannis just removed the first joint of each finger on his left hand. ACCURACY.

    (That's the best fake email I've ever seen. Well done you nerd.--JR)

  • lowercase_ryan

    even more so than the tardis argument from the other day, you have redefined pedantic.  fair warning: if the next time I see Davos on the screen  I start obsessively assessing his hands I will not be happy with you.

  • Sanityfair

    There was  a mistake...You wrote 'bad ship' instead of BEST SHIP!!! BWAHAHA!

  • Bert

    The unequivocal best ship is anyone's hand and Joffrey's face.

  • Meh

    Can I just say (book AND show fan here) That the laser-guided baby dragon fire is awesome? I love me some dragons on film, but this targeted dragonfire is so much cooler than the rolling fireball/flamethrower I'm used to seeing.

    Yes, i loved Reign of Fire. Chut up. 

  • Evie

    I don't generally have an 'imp' fetish but that header pic of Dinklage makes me wanna do naughty, naughty things.

  • Forbiddendonut

    Great stuff.  It will definitely be missed.

    I will have to say two things in defense of Lady Talisa of Volantis: (1)  She has a most excellent ass and (2) She's a better character than Jeyne Westerling (though that bar is quite low).

    Very Truly Yours,

  • AbbyNormal

    SHADOW babies, not smoke babies.

  • Rammo123

    Vagina monster more like it

  • DarthCorleone

    Very nice!

    When did that Mormont and Daenerys almost-kiss happen?  I don't remember that image.

  • JoannaRobinson

    I know!  It's like they ripped it from my dreams!  I have no idea and I looked reeeeeal close to see if it was 'shopped. 

  • DarthCorleone

    Did she give him a peck right before she went into the pyre in the first season finale?  I'm thinking that's it.

  • space_oddity

     Yep, that image is from the season one finale.

  • You are too damned good at these my dear.

  • varmint

    Shirtless blacksmithing, anyone?

  • Bert

    Tried it.  Kinda painful.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Every pie in GoT is gross, even Hot Pie

    but especially Lamprey Pie

  • $27019454

    How much you wanna bet that Peter Dinklage messes up take after take just so he can keep a-slappin that bitchface.

    Well, I know I would.


  • Seanx40

     Only 41? I think we can do better than that. I feel sad that it is over. I watch so little TV, and Game of Thrones is probably the highlight of that which I do watch. Breaking Bad might be better, but GoT is so damn much fun.

  • John W

    Cool cool cool.

  • Foolsage

    Cool cool.

  • Irina

    This is why I love you guys. For narrowing it down to 41. Not 43, not 42, but 41.
    Great job, see y'all next year for more Joffrey bitch-slapping.

  • This is absolutely fantastic!
