** Because no one likes typing daenerys and dany sounds lame I guess?

* 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.

** I imagine that at least partly, Tywin's apathy comes from realizing that Joffery largely brought his death on himself by being, well, Joffery. He's likely planning on making an example of whoever did do it; the Lannisters are very much hunting for Sansa right now. He might be willing to let the Tyrels slide if he realizes or finds out they were involved, but if he finds out about Littlefinger's involvement, he's doubtful he'll receive any mercy.

** I wonder why other slaves didn't speak up though. Dani's reputation regarding slavery must be notorious-surely they'd know their freedom relies just on calling for help after they're in Meereen?

** You can ask the same about Craster's daughters/wives, truth is, it's a fantasy book/TV show in a different universe with different natural laws. In the Matinverse or how ever you want to call it, it seems that inbreeding does not has the same consequences as in our world, like deformities. Madness seems to be the most common consequence.

**Dany is strongly implied to be Azor Ahai reborn (born of salt and smoke, her dragons heralded by the red comet...). So that may factor into her apparent immunity to heat, since Azor Ahai is part of the Lord of Light's mythos.

** 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?

[[folder: Cast billing order, title sequence and credits]]
* 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.
