Loved that scene by her!
I'm confused...I thought they were talking about Melisandra or whatever her name is?

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Another fantastic episode.

I agree the scenes with Tywin and Arya are fantastic. That girl is terrific, and Charles Dance is just about always terrific in anything he does. The two of them together are great stuff.

Book Spoilers to follow:
Arya & Tywin:
Spoiler:
Arya and Tywin do not interact at all in Harrenhal. She is never his cupbearer... just works in the kitchens, at least while he's there.

Mild spoilers about the strange woman:
Spoiler:
That's Quaithe. She's one of the 13 and was in the books. I knew her face was covered but I couldn't remember how. I looked it up and in the books she wore a lacquered wooden mask.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

So who or what is the ghost of Harrenhal?

Harrenhal is the place Tywin and Arya are, right?

No ghost in particular that I recall, it was just a place that seemed to lead to doom & death for whoever was in charge of it. And yes, that's where arya & tywin are.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Arya is the ghost of harrenhal. Though in the way this episode was shot it would make just as much sense that Jaken Haggar (or however his name is spelt) would be the said ghost.

Can it not be ghost as in the shell of Harrenhal?

Harrenhal is rumored to be haunted, but Ja'qun Harquar and Arya are the ghosts, killing who they desire.

BTW, I'm under the assumption, because my detailed memory of the books is fuzzy after all these years, that Ja'qun did not HAVE to be a Lannister man, but CHOSE to become a Lannister so he can find Arya and they together can pay back the red god the debt of three lives they owe him.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

FWIW, the phrase "The Ghost of Harrenhal" is taken directly from the book. Not really a spoiler, but tagged for the sensitive:

Spoiler:
Arya calls herself the ghost once she sees she can kill with a whispered name

I have no idea where this comes from. For one thing the title of the episode was not, "The Ghosts of Harrenhal.

And if it's something from the books--well, here we go again.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

It's because they don't call themselves the ghost(s), it's the perception of the other people that it's haunted.

No, I was saying that for a common solider, in a rumored haunted castle, suspicious murders would be the work of a ghost

Cersei was pretty drunk though, so I'll cut her some slack! I figure with all the stress she's under, she must be drinking wine like it's going out of style.

Dany's dragon cooking the meat with its own fire was very cute.

"Dracarys" was great. I'm glad they're showing the dragons sparingly but not forgetting about them.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Were there any shots of Ghost when Jon and the Night's Watch were hiking to the Fist of the First Men? If he was there, I didn't spot him.

This episode was great on every level. The cinematography is just gorgeous.

I love everything about Tyrion, but his interactions with Bron and Lancel (Cersei's cousin and current lover), are just downright hilarious.

Either Ghost's white fur was blending in rather well or he was just off hunting as he's wont to do.

I thought Ghost was off in the background at one point.

Agreed. REALLY like this guy and his interaction with Arya so far. I'm thinking he's going to end up taking out Joffrey.

WOW. Just the gaze she conveys SO much. Great acting.
The girl that plays Arya is absolutely fantastic. She's definitely #2 for me in terms of favorite characters, with Tyrion Lannister being #1 and...

I know a lot of people don't like this story but it is one of my favorites. Mostly because Dany is so vulnerable right now, but her potential for power so great.
...Jorah Mormont being #3. I REALLY like Jorah.

Now what would you do if you had only two more death wishes and you had a laundry list of deserving souls?
Joffrey HAS to be on the hitlist. Maybe the Hound as well...but Joffrey is definitely on it.

Yes, and it was an awesome shot. It's when they were setting up camp at the top of the mountain and he was up on a ridge in the background. It was an awesome effect to make him look massive, but with how they used the perspective he didn't look fake or CGI at all.
