I stole this format from another site:

SPOILER RULES:

- ABSOLUTELY NO BOOK SPOILERS. It doesn't matter if they're under spoiler tags, they should not be in this thread. Use the other thread for book-related television discussion. This includes alluding to things, subtle hinting, comparing the books to the show, etc...

- Thread Rules:

Feel free to discuss anything that has aired without using spoiler tags.
Anything that hasn't aired yet should be spoiler tagged including information from HBO previews, loglines, trailers, interviews, and a few other places.
Speculation from people that haven't read the books is fine and encouraged.
No spoilers you've heard:
e.g. "I heard next week XX will return"

- For the book readers that want to lurk in this thread:

No taunting or teasing:
e.g. "Oh, just wait until you guys see what happens to him next week!!!"
No leading questions:
e.g. "What do you think will happen to this character by the end of the season?"
No comparing the book to the show:
e.g. "Well, that's different than in the book where they..."
Answering questions is fine when the information is readily available from what has aired on the show.
e.g. Q: "Wait, how is Robb related to Ned?" A: "Robb is Ned's son."

You ever talk about a movie with someone that read the book? They're always so condescending. 'Ah, the book was much better than the movie.' Oh really? What I enjoyed about the movie: no reading.

That pisses me off to no end. Literature and film (or TV) are completely different art forms anyway. They deserve to be judged on their own merit, not some bull [expletive] preconceived notion of what they're supposed to be.

As for GoT...

Spoiler: show
Next week will have boobs and murder. Probably.

I know you didn't.

Tread lightly. I'm serious.

I seriously doubt it, but I think it would be cool if Tywin was involved. That would help explain why he wanted Jaime to leave his post as the King's guard.

I feel like I'm suddenly at the kids table at Thanksgiving.

You should be. Literature vs film

I didn't know there were probable boobs. I need to pay more attention

I'd like to see that gymnast return. She was a compelling character.
