yes, the wine was for Daenerys because the king offered a reward for her death.

sorry if this has been asked before, but i don't want to read any comments in case of spoilers.
so i'm reading the book now and i wanna watch the show as soon as possible. is the show like true blood, where one season = one book or did they split the books? and when can i start watching the show (like half-way through it maybe?) or should i finish the first book first because they spoil some things in the show?

^ the tv show is based on the first book only, you will have to read the book first not to be spoiled because the plot is quite the same, except for some small differences and of course the cuts they've made to make the book fit into a TV show format.

But the book is so good that you will read it in a few days, so there's no problem

Amazing end of chapter 8, very well done yes sir ,so intense.. i take my hat off.
Also a thumbs up for Catelyn Stark when she saw Robb come from battle, her reaction was so moving.
The scene when Jon discovers the true identity of master Aemon was so impresive as well , he stood with his mouth open
And the most funny moment in the chapter .... Half man, half man !....Pong

it was Sean Bean so I wasn't surprised that that happened

but it's this sort of subversiveness with the traditional narrative of this sort of genre that is making the show really engaging and a really good fit for HBO

I read the book, so I expected it. I was still hoping maybe it wouldn't happen though.
And I'm really sad to find out there's only 10 episodes in this season.
That really sucks and I already know they're going to end Season 1 with a massive cliffhanger.

If I got anything from this episode though, it's that I LOATHE that little, inbred twat Joffrey more than any other character in the entire series!

Holy sh!t! did that really happen?! I havenīt read the books so the whole time I was going "nah, itīs not gonna happen" and then swoosh off with your head
Only one episode left

Is the show too different from the books? I donīt want to read them if then the show itīll be a play by play of it... or is it more like True Blood?

^The show is actually really close to the books.
There are obviously some differences, but for the most part, it's the exact same.

I still recommend the books though, even if you start with book 2.

the tv show only represents the 30% of the content of the book , they took off so many characters, so many events and so many conversations that make the story much more rich and comprehensible, i thought the tv show was good until i started reading the books.

I hope they fit the whole series of books into a tv show. It's such an epic story...
