No, the three really are quite hard to tell apart.

I don't think so. They did explicitly find five direwolves plus Ghost. Rickon, Sansa, Bran, Robb, and Arya plus Snow. :thumbup:

MedGen wrote:I feel they may have got Sansa Stark spot on, she's already coming across as a whiny little shit.

I also like how almost nobody looks "movie-pretty", yet moslty not unpleasant. Even Dany - who I think is smoking hot - looks "special" and not just like a Barbie doll.

MedGen wrote:Oh, and the Hounds armour looks fucking awesome!

Indeed, it does. I didn't like the King's guards' helmets very much, though. They seemed to fit better into a Lord of the Rings setting than in the more "realistic" setting of Westeros.
