  1. After watching the abrupt and uneven pacing of a shortened season 7, I'm starting to think a 3 part movie, with a real Hollywood budget might be the only way to satisfyingly conclude the story in a 6 episode run time. They would have to do it Lord of the Rings style and shoot all three movies at once I think, to not lock up actors for all that time. I really don't see why HBO wouldn't want to go this route, other than D&D just wanting out asap. It would easily be the biggest movie HBO have ever done, plus would strech out the storytelling for at least another 3 years. What does everyone else feel about it? I would just really love a huge budget to do the conclusion justice
  2. Something has to get stirred up with Bran though. We still have the book, "hold the door" scene to get through.
  3. By the end of the episode I was in my cups pretty well and thought they said his name was Edgar Targ. A nice Ned name drop Targ hybrid, the type of thing D&D would have thought was so clever. It had me all worked up lol. I suppose having 2 sons named Aegon is, less dumb, I guess
  4. Cersei the character is just boring now. Lena Headey does an outstanding job but she has no arc. It doesn't have to be a redemptive arc, I would just like some evolution as a charater. Every time you think Cersei might grow and move along some type of arc she digs in her heals and regresses. I thought she might evolve after the Walk of the Shame but no, she just got zombie Mountain. I thought she might evolve after Tommen. I hoped maybe she was going to get on board with the save the world plan, but nope, typical Lannister backstab city. I just think her shtick of being a bad guy for bad guys sake is boring now. The only time Cersei is remotely interesting is when you get those flickers of emotion from time to time that Headey acts outstanding. I dunno. Cersei is just plain and simply boring.
  5. Wrong thread
  6. I would also love some expansion on this statement. Who would have kidnapped Rhaegar? What are you suggesting here?
  7. I've heard that reasoning. I mean I guess.....I just don't buy it. I mean Joff is dumb and a psycho but why would killing his father's best friends son win him respect? Especially because he never tried to claim the credit in any way. And like I said earlier, Joff would have to go through channels of people and connections to make it happen that would be hard to keep it secret. That is valuable and dangerous information. I guess the straight forward LF makes the most sense but maybe Cersei too. I just don't buy or understand Joffrey doing it.
  8. I just don't understand Joffrey's desires or motivations at that point in the story to want to have Bran killed. It makes no sense. Plus I highly doubt Joffrey's capabilities off executing a plan to have Bran killed without Littlefinger, Cersei or Varys becoming aware of it. Cersei to hide the truth or Littlefinger to cause chaos then simply lying about it is the only things that make any sense
  9. So I know I'm not first to present this theory, but I can't find any threads on this site presenting a fleshed out theory and discussion. I am by no means a scholar of the text, I'm only on my second read now just finishing ACOK so any contributions to this topic is appreciated. I began to develop this theory on my own, but have since found only a couple other resources speculating along the same lines of reasoning. Youtuber, IdeasOfIceAndFire has been the only resource of substance I have found, you can see below. This seems to be the most logical place to discuss this topic, so here it goes... The Known World is round, GRRM has confirmed this. So going further into this revelation and by examining the maps it would seem plausible "The Lands of Always Winter" (LOAW) and "The Grey Waste" could be linked together just beyond where the maps cut off into unexplored territory. Or at one time were connected either by land that has since shifted or by frozen glaciers brought on by the Long Night and the Others, which recedes in the summer years. (You would have to abstractly envision a world with a different equator and axis than how we would want to envision it from current maps, but it is plausible) There are many clues into this being true: 1. I think the biggest clue from the context of the current narrative of ASOIAF is most definitely Quaithe when she speaks to Daenerys, "To go north, you must journey south, to reach the west you must go east. To go forward you must go back and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow" 2. In AWOIAF it is made clear that the Long Night was a global event, affecting both sides of the world. With small regional differences to the Azor Ahai/Last Hero story (Huzhor Amai, Yin Tar, Hyrkoon the Hero, Eldric Shadowchaser, etc.) 3. The Five Forts seem to be the Essos solution of a Wall to the Grey Waste/LOAW. So this all seems plausible, no less than any other of the tin foil theories out there (I may be watching too much Preston Jacobs lol) but my real question is how would this revelation, if true, actually affect the current narrative in ASOIAF? I could see a couple things happening. First, it could explain how Euron can travel so fast. He definitely gets around pretty quickly. Second, it could be the route Daenerys takes when she eventually invades Westeros. Furthermore, if this is all true that this was something that affects both sides of the world, perhaps Dany never goes to Westeros at all and fights the Others from the Essos side. I really want to just discuss this and flesh it out because ever since I started thinking about it, I can't stop thinking about it. I know GRRM has said we will never go to Asshai and that the continents are not connected but he's not going to spoil anything that directly comes into play of the narrative. I keep thinking how plausible it is. But how it will all come into play towards end game of ASOIAF is the real question.
  10. That's what was perfect about it. Very moving in a, "not knowing what direction it's going" sort of way. It was giving me anxiety lol
  11. The music and the directing/editing was so good in everything! Now I just need to get my head wrapped around on who's still alive lol
  12. ^This guy probably listens to Lil Wayne
  13. That was the most satisfying episode ever!! ‪#‎KingInTheNorth‬!!
  14. Trump/Lannister 2016. "We will build a great wall -- and nobody builds walls better than us"
  15. Oh man, you guys on this forum are so jaded you can't have ANY fun anymore. I laughed the hardest at this scene when Missandei finally tells her joke, Dinklade has his excited little twitch lol he was excited she had a joke! lol it was really cute. Have some fun people. Of course it's just filler, but try and enjoy it. The low points make the highs and drama that much higher
