  1. Basically, they are turning it into Star Trek. And with every new series, less people care... It doesn't really make sense, the reason given for shortening the last seasons was that the producers wished to do something else for a change - now they're investing money and manpower in spinoffs instead of the original series. It's even moronic from a marketing perspective: Continuing the original series over ten seasons with ten hour-long episodes each would have been cheaper than developing all those new projects from scratch. And they would have catered to the large existing fan(/customer) base, whereas, most probably, no spinoff will ever reach comparable success. ...Those sequel plans could be interesting, though... just imagine, the others win the game,... "soon on HBO: Game of Bones, starring Norman Reedus"!
  2. Ok, this is a bit of trolling, yet introducing a very powerful character easily leads to this kind of questions: Why did Stannis attack King's Landing, instead of just sending Melisandre into the castle? Her shadows could have taken care of every Lannister...
  3. Just a little thought, as I'm currently reading Clash for the first time: "Under the sea" is "under water". Snow is frozen water. Under the sea could simply mean "in winter" ("under snow" - not Jon, obviously). In his own words, Patchface is saying, "Winter is coming", and he knows what will happen. His very first song is about a shadow, a few pages before Stannis gets the idea of murdering Renly. Maybe he'll be holding a door for Bran at some point?
  4. A family in the Vale, where I have a respectable job in the security of the Eyrie (kennelmaster for the Arryns preferably). However, what my wife doesn't know, is that my frequent travels in West- and Esteros do not actually serve the purpose of visiting dog shows. In my secret life, I'm a faceless man, and that's how I pay for extensive stays in Littlefinger's private clubs on the way to and from a job.
  5. Hi, this is half off-topic, but by "sheep farmers" do you mean the sheep people of Miri the witch? So far, I've only watched the TV series, and recently read the first book (AGoT). That's when I realized, the whole dragon thing might actually have been the witch's plan - without her, Drogo would have lived, and the dragons never hatched. Is there such a theory, Miri/sheep people intentionally using Dany to make dragons great again?
  6. He's warging into his poop, and jumps out. It would be interesting to clarify this, especially as he gets older - will he eventually engage in reproductive activities (can't say, Martin shies away from describing those), or will he warg into someone else for the experience? For those saying, Martin would stay silent because Bran is supposed to be a child: none of the children in the story behave really childlike (yes, there were many boy kings in real history but much more guided than Robb and Joffrey. Also Rickon and Arya scenes are simply a joke.)
  7. Well, the Night King's army is indeed the leftist's wet dream: No difference whatsoever between races, sexes, cultures, ..., but only one uniform mass. He probably controls them by selling them "HuffRaven" and "Wightuardian".
  8. I already asked this in another thread, but: Turning giants, bears, and dragons being no problem for the NK, did he actually revive the children of the forest who died in "The Door"? And would they be extra powerful wights?
  9. 10. On a scale of 10-100. The worst season will probably get a "worthy" finish. btw: I like the typo in this thread's title, I'm trying to figure out what "ESI" stands for. The Elaborateness Sagaciousness Ingenuity dose will be rather low in this episode. The Equine Sh** Imbecility dose on the other hand much elevated.
  10. And the low number of WW on the show is indeed strange. There should be much more, even if the Night King only recruited Crester's babies (which would not make sense at all, why should he not also have turned little wildings?). I would have expected hundreds of White Walkers, which btw way would make the menace more believable - in the last, terrible, episode, I only thought, "that's the whole army of the dead? Really? Give me ten good men with dragon glass, no need to disturb Dany and Cersei." As we're talking about the dragon: In The Door, they've killed some children of the forest - did they turn, too?
  11. Taking a captured wight south of the wall opens a way, as he's connected to the WW who turned him. This defuses the magic, and the zombie dragon can tear down the wall.
  12. To be fair, the absence of Bran can make sense. He's just overwhelmed by all the information (like that Russian chick in Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull - no, stop, bad example, one of the worst films ever, although many would agree, Game of Thrones has been destroyed in a similar manner to that franchise). Seriously: Bran's situation is comparable to Sam's. The maesters don't act, they study, and so does Bran. Sam had the advantage of limited access (and a hot wildling waiting outside the library), thus he decided against pure wisdom. If he had been offered full access to the reading rooms, instead of being forced to steal two armfuls of books, he might have done the same as the maesters - and Bran: Getting lost in knowledge, too occupied to do anything, out of touch with other people who care about their pity day-to-day lives... There's always more information to be considered befor you take your decision. Maybe he needs to study to understand what really lies at the bottom of all this, who is the Night King, what does he want, and why, and in the last episode he'll finally look up, knock on weirwood and say: "Got it! Our world was created in the belly of a wise walrus that goes by the name of "Grrm the Unfinisher". Our only purpose is to make money for Grrm, his two high priests and an organization called HBO."
  13. Yes, and now I finally know, what this episode reminded me of: Has anybody seen "Dead Snow"? A (nazi-)zombie comedy! It's fun, really, but not what I expect from Game of Thrones...
  14. I did not notice ("shame, shame"), but thinkin about it: it might be intended. When Thoros is attacked by the bear, I thought, the hound saw sth in the flames again, and that's why he didn't help him. He could have seen a mountain again...
  15. This also works the other way round, as I have stated in the "rating" thread: Why did not Dany kill him with her two remaining dragons? He was standing just a hundred metres away, she could have attacked and scorched him for good. End of the story. Few made sense in this episode. Well, welcome to the forum, Mr President! (sorry, couldn't resist)
