** Also... and this borders on WildMassGuessing here, but would they ever try a simpler, ''PersonOfInterest''-style TitleSequence (without the narration [[CaptainObvious as it's out-of-genre]], for a future season or would that be an AudienceAlienatingPremise?

* How is it decided for the order of the cast in the TitleSequence? I know the cast changes line-up every other season or so, but will this show ever do a ''GreysAnatomy'' or ''TheCatch'' and stick to one title sequence (since those shows very rarely if ever had a SpecialEditionTitle). [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Since the show had over 100 characters]], how was it decided on? Aren't there SAG rules about crediting?

*** There's a crucial difference between a few people deducing it and it becoming a well-known fact. Also, it's not that Payne can't make himself understood, it's that he gives ''zero'' fucks about it but can't make a careless FreudianSlip, which was Jaime's only real concern with his friend Marbrand and the specific reason they stopped.


Added DiffLines:

** Seriously though, Tyrion recommends Bronn as "a proper, discrete swordsman" but one of the first things Bronn tells Jaime is, "There's this knight, Leygood. Got thunderbolts on his shield? Right here is where [[YourCheatingHeart I fuck his wife]]." Proper, discrete swordsman, indeed.

** Nitpick, there was a least one other survivor of Aerys' King's Guard; the Lord Commander who's name escapes me right now. He's the guy who got Dany and Viserys out of the country and accross the narrow sea, though he died of some illness several years before the start of the series.

** A cross isn't that complex of a symbol, it could represent the Warrior's sword for all we know, It's not like the Sparrows are from from Hokkaido they just use the seven pointed star since it fits there thing and easy to reproduce.

*** It's worth noting that IRL, the United States Military doesn't swear an oath to the President (Commander in Chief) or the Generals, or the Secretary of State. They swear an oath to uphold the Constitution.

** Martin already said that the reason for the long winters is magical and not sci-fi, so is not the orbit of the problem that causes it. As for the rest; yes, a lot of people die during those winters, that's the problem exactly, even though they do seem to take certain precautions as seen in the first episode were, after a "long summer" they guarded as much harvests as possible, as for the rest, I see no reason why they can't import food from other places like Braavos or the Free Cities.

* This headscratcher is about how the GoT world actually works, according to descriptions, their "true" winters last YEARS, and most of it is night, so to add up, well below freezing, years long darkness, bugger all grows, the south is supposed to be relativly warmish, but still, their orbit must be out of some whack, and everyone should of died long ago, no matter what model, a medieval population like westeros would not have the tech or the means to survive a several year long winter, at least not without a significant population wipe, a planet with any kind of orbit that leaves them without sunlight or warmth for years is one which does not support a population, magical winters or not.
