I think of Stannis as the Lex Luthor of Westeros... he thinks he's doing what's right and he would just be a horrible dictator.

When it comes to Stannis, I share Davos' viewpoint. He is harsh and has a little bit of weird sense of justice, but I think he is no tyrant. Of course, Daenerys is whom everyone wants to see seated on the Iron Throne, but I think she is still too young and inexperienced and waaay too soft for ruling as of yet.

I think Davos is awesome! He's your Blue Color up and comer with a sound set of morals.

Now how awesome could an onion knight be on a dragon!?

There is a great You Tube parody of "Somebody I used to know" by Gotye for Game of thrones. Look up "Character I used to know"...

There's also a GoT song opening that's made like Friends. It's rather funny!

I love Stannis.

Wronged by so many, including his own kin. Stuck in a loveless marriage due to politics and with a sickly child because his ass of a brother gave him the damp barren rock called Dragonstone.

[spoil]Yet does his duty, is an athiest ( he just uses the red woman ), has some nice dry humor, probably the best general in Westeros AND he believes in giving the job to the best suited person instead of using it as grease ( See Davos ).

Not to mention he's the only throne contender who is dealing with the real threat.[/spoil]

I know this is the book club but I have to make a comment on the show. But ever since I read it, I've been waiting for the Oberyn Martell vs The Mountain fight. I gotta say it was absolutely amazing. Far cooler than I imagined. Anyone else think that was awesome?

Anyone else looking forward to a particular scene after reading it in the books?

Please don't read this if you only follow the TV show and haven't read the books! Seriously, big spoiler for those who have not read "A Dance with Dragons". I love this series, and cannot wait for the next book. I have also been watching the TV show on HBO and they've done an excellent job with only a few minor changes to the story.
