Game of Thrones, Episode 2 - The Kingsroad

Episode 2 is out, and the show already takes a slightly different turn compared to the book, especially where the character of Cersei Lannister is involved. She is given a lot more vulnerability and softness than the first book shows, in a scene that is perhaps the best in the episode. Daenerys also seems to be rather different. Her simple love for the Khal and her newfound sense of freedom from the novel have been replaced with a slightly demented stoner persona that looks very interesting for the time being.

I am sensing how I'll need to rewatch every episode again and again until I stop subconsciously comparing every scene with the book. But the show keeps being worth it, and I can't wait to see how it develops!
