DO NOT READ IF YOU INTEND TO WATCH GAME OF THRONES, BUT HAVE NOT STARTED YET!
Two weeks ago, I began watching Game of Thrones from the beginning for the first time. Everyone at work is into it, so I finally took the plunge. Of course, it’s impossible to completely avoid spoilers. I know there are dragons, White Walkers, and so on. However I’ve remained gleefully spoiler free on most key happenings. I am two seasons into the show, now midway through the third.
The other day at work, I was talking about how much I’m enjoying the show. I mentioned some characters I didn’t like, such as Joffrey, Theon and “Kingslayer” Jaime Lannister, the greatest swordsman in the realm.
One friend asked, “Jaime Lannister, is that the one-handed guy?”
At once everybody responded, “Yes.”
“He loses his HAND??” I howled.
