    Only a few more hours...

    A question though, does Winter ever actually come in the books or anything?
       It's not officially declared Winter till the epilogue of A Dance with Dragons

       They won't necessarily "show" the battle at all, maybe just short flashbacks. Although flashbacks haven't been their style before.   
    Crap, I forgot exactly how they handled that chapter. Well... I'm sure they'll at least show    Sam killing the walker.    But that's obvious.

    Well, I just learned I have HBO for free for a month. Now I don't have to wait for someone to upload it somewhere. Thanks Dish!

    Dunno if this has been posted, but:

    Open it in VLC's network stream. It's a stream of HBO Live, which will show season 2 episode 1 when it airs.

    It's down right now, but keep trying it in VLC. It'll stream the premiere of season 2 in high quality when it airs.
    It's working for me?

    Some guy on /tv/ streaming HBO live until it airs.

    Then I assume it'll work like any other stream.

    No, it's a live stream of HBO live.

    It's watching season 1 now, though.

    We switched TV companies, so we get 3 months of HBO free. Perfect timing.

    So where is the episode going to be streaming? Any links would be helpful.

    Edited:

    Found this one.

    Not sure if they're gonna do it on time or after the episode though.

    Wait, it didn't really differ that much. Some scenes were reorganized but it was pretty much exactly the same as the opening chapters.

    Edited:

    Also, highlights of the episode-
       -Jamie Lannister meeting Grey Wind.
    -The wolves, they grow so fast and so fucking awesome.
    -Cersei slapping Joffrey
    -The execution of the bastards
    -Yet another member of the Skins cast joining the series

    differences off the top of my head:

       the imp didnt barge into a joust with his wildlings (his wildlings are kinda a big part); shae is with him in the hand's quarters and not off hiding in the city; joff's brother didnt joust; the queen really wants arya (maybe i havent read far enough but 244 pages and i havent hit that conversation of hers with little finger, if its in there); going to the iron islands was robb's idea in the book (or so he claims); was robb's idea to send his mother away from him in the book (here she wanted to leave); i dont think robb sent her to renly in the book either; the red lady made fun of the maester more and there was no sight of stannis' daughter or her fool; no mention of robb's lords leaving him to defend their lands; no mention of who Davos is or that he was out asking lords for help and they all said no; the night's watch didn't encounter an abandoned village though they mention it (and where i'm at they havent met that guy who marries his daughters (again, if its in the book)   

    not complaining, it's just i didnt read the first book and i was kinda surprised at how different it was. some lines are word for word from the book but they skipped a bunch

    Loved it. Nice set up with all the different kings and such. Joffrey is still a prick. Peter dinklage getting first billing and rightfully so. Good to see that they haven't removed the     the warging aspect of the series

    Peter Dinklage can just walk into a room and captivate you with his performance. Such a remarkable actor, he deserves every award he gets nominated for.
