#SFFFriday...the second

Yesterday was Team Lindsey's second #SFFFriday (when LF and LP get together with the sole purpose of honoring, catching up on, and getting lost in something from the SciFi/Fantasy genres). Continuing where we left off last week, we finished up season two of Game of Thones, and FINALLY watched the eagerly anticipated season three premier!

While the premier left us hungry for more GoT, it did feel like it was mostly set-up for the succeeding episodes...but that's okay, because we know some of what's to come. Well, besides winter and white walkers and wildlings. We'll laugh, we'll cry, and without a doubt, we'll throw a tantrum when the season ends and we have to wait another eight months for season four. We're already dreading it :(

Back to season two. Here is some of what we loved, and who we loved to hate...

Favorite Quotes From Season Two (mostly spoken by Tyrion, of course!):
1. "You love your children. It's your one redeeming quality; that and your cheekbones." (Tyrion, 2.01)
2. "I am not threatening the King, Ser Meryn, I am education my nephew. Bronn, the next time Ser Meryn speaks, kill him. That was a threat. See the difference?" (Tyrion, 2.04)
3. "I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid." (Tyrion, 2.08)
4. "The Lord of Light wants his enemies burnt. The Drowned God wants his enemies drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious c*nts? Where is the god of t*ts and wine?" (Tyrion, 2.08)
5. "Or maybe it's a dream. Your dream, my dream, I do not know. These are questions for wise men with skinny arms." (Khal Drogo, 2.10)
6. "That would make me the quarter man, and that just does not have the same ring to it." (Tyrion, 2.09)
7. "I need to find my brother and mother...and my sister. I need to find her too." (Arya, 2.10)
8. "I wish someone would have told me. I wouldn't have had to steal that pig." (Jamie, 2.10)

Top Five Loved Character Combos:
1. Jaqen H'ghar & Arya Stark
2. Jon Snow & Ygritte / Jon Snow & Ghost
3. Danaerys Targaryen & Ser Jorah Mormont
4. Tyrion Lannister & anyone
5. The Hound & Sansa Stark

Top Three Love-to-hate Characters:
1. Joffery
2. Cersei
3. Jamie

Top Three Characters We'd Like to Punch:
1. Theon ('nuff said)
2. Melisandre, The Red Witch (that beezy is just evil)
3. Ser Loras Tyrell (when did he get so whiny?)

Top Five Characters Who Confuse Us (What's their endgame?):
1. Lord Varys
2. Margaery Tyrell
3. Lord Baelish
4. Talisa Maegyr (She's not in the books, so we're thinking they must have replaced Jeyne Westerling as Robb's wife for a reason...why?)
5. Shae (She's so different from the Shae in the books, so, what's her story?)

After another successful and satisfying #SFFFriday, all we can say is...MORE GAME OF THRONES! Now, back to the world of The Ending...
