Excerpts I Want Adapted to Television

But the hero did not hide. He rode out the city gates, armored in scales of copper and jet and mounted upon a white charger whose striped pink-and-white barding matched the silk cloak flowing from the hero's shoulders. The lance he bore was fourteen feet long, swirled in pink and white, and his hair was shaped and teased and lacquered into two great curling ram's horns.

A Storm of Swords, George R.R. Martin

I really wanted to see Ned & Jaime staredown on the Iron Throne, but I thought it was pretty tame on the show, sadly.

I did not know what barding was. The first returned result was amazing:

barding present participle of bard
Verb: Cover (meat or game) with slices of bacon.
