@Chris for the most part this season has been consistent with the books; two minor differences are made to avoid introducing new characters. 1)Thoros and Melisandre never chat and. Gendry remains with the brotherhood and she finds another bastard son of Robert for her magic. 2)Loras has an older brother who Sansa is supposed to marry who is crippled like Bran. But to cut down on the number of minor characters its a good thing. I actually really liked the Thoros/Melisandre scene

Chris, I can tell you that, in spite of having read all the books so far, I am loving the TV adaptation. For the first two seasons, the series followed the books pretty faithfully and there were just minor changes that are to be expected. But this season, the series is changing a LOT, so for me, it's making it interesting in several ways - I want to see how (and if) certain scenes will be played out(Dany's freeing the Unsullied for ex was just amazing); the changes are radical enough that sometimes I really don't know what's coming anymore so it's like watching something new; and finally, I want to see if in the end, it will all somehow work out like it does in books, or if it will be totally different. But whatever happens, this is one of the best book-to-screen adaptations I've read/watched and I can't say I prefer one over the other (and usually it's the book that wins for me).

and @Jako'theshadows don't you dare tell me...Ha. TY for confirming my hunch, but I will happily wait to see it unfold on screen in time. Having read the books like you said, how is the show doing in terms of keeping your interest and entertaining you?

@anneu I absolutely agree. That was my feeling as well. Just to be clear it wasn't gay relationships I raised my eyebrow too it was how she assumed to know the habits of young boys. She knew the whole matter was distasteful to Tywin and used it well to rattle him. She is a great addition this season. She is accepting of Loras no matter who he shares his bed with, as family should be, where as Tywin just refuses to address the indescretions of his children. If he doesn't talk about it, then it is not true. Sort of like Baelish talking about the stories they all agree to tell over and over until they forget they are lies.

The obsidian dagger Sam finds does indeed play a larger part. Those of us who read the books can tell you how. :)

I think Olenna's comment about boys tussling under the sheets was meant to show that she is open-minded about gay relationships. Tywin is not, but he's also not willing to accept even the possibility that his twins have had an incestuous relationship that produced 3 children, which Olenna finds much more troubling than Loras being a "sword-swallower".

Anon TY for heads up. While there is no confusing the two, I do screw up the names from time to time. Tywin, Tyrion, Theon, too many T's. Thank you.

In a more civil setting, ,Lady Olenna and Tyrion, discussed the potentially devastating scandals facing each of their families in a scene that was as funny as it was informational.

It was Olenna and Tywin...
