    I really need to hurry and catch up.. still on season two here!

    Haven't read the books, but I'm fairly sure I know who Barry is, simply from the method of torture. :P

    Having read the series and knowing what was coming I was actually really excited to see how they'd handle it. I love the dynamic between Arya and The Hound and how they handled the Wolf was interesting. I was shocked by the initial brutality towards Jeyne as I don't remember this in the book but it worked really well as a dose of cold water to start the scene. The actress playing Caitlyn Stark did really well although she wasn't nearly as deranged as I was hoping for.

    If Tyrian the P(imp) is killed off at any time though, that's when I will stop watching!

    Also, I'm still really curious to know what's going to happen to Theon!
    You'll be pleased to know that Tyrion has some AWESOME stuff coming up and he was still alive at the end of 'A Dance with Dragons' although his situation is... precarious. Put it that way.

    Personally I am REALLY looking forward to Joffrey's Wedding XD

    I got the feeling something was building when the doors were shut and the orchestra started playing that haunting tune. Caitlyn had a look of fear growing in her eyes. I found out later that the tune was a Lannister cautionary song.

    Random fact: Anyone notice Coldplay's Will Champion in the orchestra?

    IIRC They were playing the 'Rains of Castamere'

    I didn't notice the Coldplay dude but then I'm not much of a Coldplay fan and I was more focused on the gore tbh XD

    Also, who is 'Barry'? If you're talking about Theon Greyjoy he becomes 'Reek'....

    I mentioned it. He was surprisingly killed of in Season 1! I was not expecting that either and was also left in a state of shock. :O

    Nah the guy torturing Theon is the the illegitimate son of Roose Bolton. He takes on 'disguises' and befriended Theon as 'Reek' then betrayed him. His name is Ramsey Bolton.

    That explains the title then

    TBH, I did not notice either.. I read about it and re-watched that bit to check.

    You know who the best character in the whole series is?

    Hodor

    Seriously, that guy is so helpful, to everyone, and they treat him like a slave effectively.

    Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody was singing The Bear and The Maiden Fair earlier in the season as well:

    (actually a safe for work clip, incredibly)

    @AMLightfoot - "Barry" is Theon's torturer, whose identity is still unknown in the series. He's called Barry from the actor's character in Misfits - where he was actually called Simon, but another character always referred to him as Barry.

    If you've not seen Misfits, Series 1 & 2 are superb. Watch them

    EDIT: my warning of what has been revealed on TV came too late stupid work phone calls! @AMLightfoot - we're keeping secret anything what hasn't been in the TV show up to this point, so be vewy, vewy caweful...

    They've also had someone from Snow Patrol. Rumour has it that next year Justin Beiber will be portraying a pile of horse dung.

    When Iwan Rheon, who plays Theon's torturer, was in "Misfits" his character was often (incorrectly) called Barry - mainly by Nathan, who couldn't be bothered to learn his name. IR is also in "Vicious" on ITV am.

    Until 1/2 way through Book 2, I was convinced it was all a trick and he was alive somewhere...

    EDIT: TOO SLOW!
