Obviously many people on this site are big fans of Game of Thrones, both the books and the TV show. And with Season 3 premiering tonight, it seems that it would be prudent to keep discussion out of the main threads for people that are watching it on delay. So, I am creating this thread as a place for discussion of the premiere, so it can be discussed without filling the main thread with blocky spoiler tags.
This thread will be considered an open spoiler zone starting at 9 PM PDT, beginning with a liveblog of the west coast premeiere. You have been warned. If you are watching in an earlier time zone or on an earlier feed, please do not post any spoilers until after the 9 PM west coast premiere. Once the liveblog is concluded around 10 PM PDT, it's open seasons on spoilers and general discussion. If you want to discuss anything from later in the season, consider using spoiler tags out of respect for people who have not read the books.
If you have recommendations for the thread before the liveblog begins, or want to discuss anything prior to Season 3 (/A Storm of Swords), the thread is open. Have at it.
