for any of you who have entertained the thought that jon snow's lineage includes targaryen blood (eddard and someone or some random kidnapper *wink wink* and lynarra): i used to think that also, but it sorta bothered me that snow is not immune to heat/fire... wouldn't he be?

in a way, i like that the tv story was condensed and some pointless stories removed, like the trek between the death of yoren and the capture of arya and gendry.

also glad adam marbrand was melded with bronn, why did he exist in the first place.

i read the first three books fats, the fourth took forever, the pace just became too slow.

Not necessarily, Viserys wasn't immune to heat. Not all the Starks seem equal in their green magic either.

I think it unfortunate that we miss the trek of Arya and Gendry between the death of Yoren and their capture as it helps develop both of their characters. Arya has had a bunch of her scenes condensed both in the trek down to king's landing and in the escape from king's landing, I guess because much of the chapters are more inside her head and that may not translate as well to TV.

Mardbrand is a whatever, except it is a bit odd for Bronn to have a role separate from Tyrion like commander of the King's watch, or to expect that all the people would trust a sellsword for that role rather than a proven bannerman.

More like Bywater combined with Bronn. And I liked Bywater, and was sad about his death.

Lyanna

And I echo what Mike said. Also other Targaryens.

The hot "pleasure house" girl that taught Dany to be on top (forgot her name) took the dragons imo (just speculating so not a spoiler).

Doreah

That's an interesting theory. (This is a diversion from the book, so I don't know the answer, either, and don't think that I have spoilers. I was going to say my guess, but as it likely is based on trying to remerge with the book, it MIGHT be a spoiler, and so won't post.)

Wasn't it (in the TV show) the Wizards who took the dragons? We saw the Wizards in the "previously on GoT..." flashback at the start to remind us of them and then the final scene shows someone who looks like the Wizard we saw carrying the covered dragons up to the Wizard tower, no?

If I recall correctly, it was someone hooded, but we didn't see his face. But perhaps I missed it. Anyway, that would have been my guess on who took them.

well it looks like they're moving at a pretty good little clip here... iirc, white walkers weren't really introduced till the 4th book or so... sigh, another year to wait for next season

Those shown at the end of this season were not what were called "white walkers" in the book. The "white walkers"/"others" are those that animated the ones that we saw at the end of this season (and we saw them at the beginning of season 1) .

Also, you may want to reread the first chapter of A Storm of Swords.
