Ian Whyte cast credit

There isn't a white walker in the episode (unless they're counting the 'story so far' spiel). I though Whyte played the giant in this episode?--Werthead (talk) 21:39, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Special Effects Emmy

I can see why the premiere won the Special Effects Emmy 2013; logically of course they put their best foot forward and hook the audience in the first episode, but thinking on it, this episode had all three dragons (featured prominently instead of just a brief shot to save money), a direwolf (Ghost in the beginning), a Giant (not as complex as the "Bigfoot" version in the books, but still pleasant), and even a Manticore. Plus some nice shots of Harrenhal.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:29, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Sansa's game

I don't think Sansa's game was in the books; could it be inspired by George R.R. Martin's own childhood near the New Jersey docks? [1] --The Dragon Demands (talk) 00:59, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
