As of this writing, two episodes of the new season of HBO's series adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire have aired, and a third will air tonight. The Iron Isles are a welcome addition to the map and are even more perilous-looking than this blogger (Kate) was imagining; Carice van Houten (who I'm sure is a lovely person in real life, really) has made it possible to hate Melisandre even more; Maisie Williams is still amazingly fierce and self-reliant as Arya Stark; TV viewers are getting their first look at Davos Seaworth (but with nary a mention of onions so far? Perhaps I need to rewind a bit, surely?); Peter Dinklage is the boss of everybody in the Red Keep and Ned is still dead.
So far, we are most pleased. How about you?
