Game of Thrones (HBO), the Wall??

 
 
Reply Sun 12 May, 2013 06:35 am
Last weekend, Jon Snow, Ygritte, and two other guys from Ygritte's tribe made it to the top of the ice wall which apparently separates North from South in GOT...

Anybody know what the plan is or why they wanted to climb the wall??

@gungasnake,
I haven't started watching this season yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

@gungasnake,
The plan is to go down the other side and attack Castle Black from behind.
Castle Black is all but defenseless from the South and is manned by a skelton
crew during the Old Bear's reconnaisance in force. Then they can open the
gates through The Wall for Mance Rayder.

@George,
I should note that in the book a lot more wildings made it over The Wall.

@George,
Thanks! Do any of the books say how the ice wall got built in the first place?

@gungasnake,
Not really...but apparently it is a creation of the First Men.

Comments about the books are spoilers...and really should be used very carefully here. No reason to spoil one of the best television productions ever.

@Frank Apisa,
Yep. I hope I was discrete.

My wife and I are watching the series. My son Nigel (24) drops by to watch
with us. His brother Rhys finds the violence off-putting and retreats to
the "Rhys Cave" downstairs.

I'm the only one who's read the books (I have read all of them) so I have to
watch what I say.

Yup...me too.

Great books...even greater television production. Top quality all the way.

I love the attention to detail. Good casting choices as well.

@George,
Another question...

What's the deal with the guy torturing Theon?? Does he have any sort of a regular job other than torturing Theon or anybody else to torture to break up the monotony or anything like that? I mean that one doesn't seem to figure logically. How'd he learn about Theon and determine that Theon was the person most in need of torture in the world??

Another problem, in real life, that guy's employees (soldiers, whores...) would all figure out he had too many problems and that their own lives were in danger just being around him, and they'd all leave after about the first week.

I think they're holding back his identity for now, though he has been
mentioned earlier.

He does have a day job.

I dunno. There have been some really sadistic bastards in real life who
have inspired misplaced loyalty.

This, I think, is a device used to get around something that occurred in the book that simply cannot be done on television. A surprise in the book that cannot work when you can see the person involved.

Just let it be...and it will all work out. I just hope the torture scenes can be over soon.

Yeah. They're going a bit over the top with this.
