  1. We don't have information, so we have to make it up: Maybe Ellaria Sand poisoned him in Season 5 off-screen so he wouldn't be able to protect Myrcella. He was sick and bedridden the whole season so couldn't take part in any of the action. After Myrcella's death, he went back to King's Landing to protect Tommen. We definitely see him on the boat with the princess in Season 2!
  2. This I think is a question that's been bugging me since Season 4! Tyrion gave them superior weapons, so they'd be a force against the Vale. He even promised them the Vale. Why did they let Sandor & Arya and Brienne & Podrick through unmolested? If Littlefinger took the full force of the Vale's army into Winterfell, wouldn't this be a prime opportunity for the newly armed Hill Tribes to wreck havoc? I found Shaga, Timmet, Chella, etc to be interesting and fun characters!
  3. Even if Lyanna went willingly, it would have been without Rickard's permission. Women didn't have the right to choose their own fate.
  4. Television shows and movies unfortunately have to contract, they just can't have the complexity of novels. So it was too difficult to make the rebellion about Aerys demanding that Jon Arryn surrender Robert and Ned, so they just make it about Robert getting vengeance on Rhaegar for abducting and raping Lyanna. In the show, that *is* what the rebellion was about. A small drop originally eventually creates large ripples, and this sort of thing happens after several years. Robert and Ned are not villains because they acted in good faith at the time, believing that they were right. It still doesn't mitigate Aerys' crimes. On a side note Lord Stannis, I do think it is quite amusing how if you ask Google "Who is the one true king?" with no context, the answer is still Stannis!
  5. I believe I read somewhere that they used makeup and effects on Carice's face, but used the real body of an older stand in.
  6. It seems to me that Robb was trying to be his father rather than just doing what he knew would be right.
  7. Another question is why he even has a name recorded? I'm pretty sure Ned Stark didn't register at the local Maester's office. If Rhaegar left a will or something, then everyone would know that Lyanna was pregnant with his child and it wouldn't be a secret.
  8. dbunting for your last point, I think he will sell a lot of books, but I think you are right that there are some people who will not buy it now. But I don't think it will make a huge difference. He will also sell more books because of people who wouldn't have bought them at all had there never been a tv show. Game of Thrones is pretty popular, to the point that people who don't watch identify themselves as someone who doesn't watch Game of Thrones. But as others have said, it won't get as big because it isn't for children.
  9. Season 4 to be is the best far and above. It had great dramatic moments, excellent character stories, and so much payoff. Season 3 was very similar quality to 4, but it just didn't have the same level of epicness in my mind. Season 1 was excellent, and we wouldn't be watching this show for so long without it. Season 2 had lots of good stuff but felt a bit rough. This season also went way overboard with the X rated material for no real reason. Season 5 was where the show started to change, for the worst I feel. It was very dry and boring at times, but did have some good story movement. Season 6 I feel is where the show started to become fan-fiction quality. They abandoned the concepts of real consequences for actions and decisions, and it feels often that they're forcing a square peg into a round hole to say just to make the story go where they want it. What I miss the most from the first half of the show was how characters would take actions and make choices, and later would pay for that. This no longer happens, and it really got bad in Season 6.
  10. I agree mostly with Zorral, but believe there are big differences between the books and the show. In the Show, they appear to be a weapon created by the Children of the Forest to remove Men from Westeros. I think that is their purpose: they will not rest until all men are destroyed everywhere on the continent. They were a weapon that the creators could not control and even wiped them out. This is a trope that has been used many times in fantasy and fiction, like the Doomsday Machine from Star Trek. In the Books I think they are much more sinister. I believe that they are servants of the Other (thus being called "Others/Other's") who lives in the far dark north. There is a dichotomy between Ice and Fire, and both are villains seeking influence in the world. It's similar to the Shadows and Vorlons in Babylon 5. I feel it may be similar to how the Shadows come out every few millennia to wipe out civilization so it can start over).
  11. A little piece of me dies inside with every episode after Season 4 (The Children is my favorite episode of the show so far). Fortunately the first 4 seasons gave me such strong reserves that I can go on for a while yet. This is not the same show as what it used to be. I will still ride it out though since I have so many years invested emotionally.
  12. I think Beric pretty much gave it away: At some point, someone will kill the Night King and then the entire White Walker & Wight army will instantly drop dead for good. I feel that I will be very disappointed when this happens. It will be very quick, clean, and complete. I understand that movies and tv shows do this sort of thing so that there can be a high tension climactic scene with very little loose ends afterwards. Considering how common of a trope that it is I would have thought Game of Thrones would go a different route.
  13. We don't hear anything about the Stormlands on this show. They can't attack Euron's fleet because Daenerys called an armistace. If she attacks the fleet before going to King's Landing, then no one would ever trust her word again and all her supporters would probably abandon her. If she attacks once she is in King's Landing, then she's as good as dead.
  14. My understanding is that the Others/Wights cannot move through it on their own, but can be "carried" through. It's sort of like in Lord of the Rings when the Ring was a huge weight to whomever carried it, but when Sam carried Frodo he did not also have the extra burden of the Ring (which he was expecting).
  15. It's sort of a similarity by association. Tyrion says Jon looks like Ned. Someone says Jon looks like Arya. Someone says Arya looks like Lyanna. Based on that, we can assume that Ned looks like Lyanna.
