  1. Interesting read, but I got to admit that I'm glad they changed as much as they did, because many scenes would've (imo) been worse if they followed the original outline. They most likely dropped Jon having issues with Dany burning the Tarlys (and replaced it with the "Sometimes strength is terrible"-speech), just as they dropped a lot of other things (like Brienne dying, Mel telling Dany about Jon's resurrection, etc). The changes seen in the show are the new canon, while the original outline in this scenario are just "what-might-have-been's" that (imo thankfully) didn't end up happening. I'm actually really glad that they changed Jon and Dany's scene with the dragons in E5, even I would've considered their romance rushed if they had followed the original outline as they essentially fall in love between E4 and E5 without anything really happening between them. One thing I reacted to however was: "After Jon pledges his loyalty to Dany, "she gets the look on her face we haven't seen since Drogo told her he was going to sail to westeros and kill the men in the iron suits."" I might be reading too much into it, but the look on Dany's face in E7 when Jon swears allegiance to Dany in front of Cersei actually did remind me of the look she gave Drogo in S1, except it's more sober and restrained, probably because she's wise enough at this point to realize the problems Jon causes by doing it. It's clear to me that she really enjoyed (and was amazed by, possibly even attracted by) seeing Jon bend the knee to her in that fashion however.
  2. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4900038/GOT-s-Emilia-Clarke-dyes-hair-blonde.html So Emilia has dyed her hair platinum-blonde right before filming starts. I assume it's mostly for shit and giggles (and as a nice nod to her character). Will they continue to have her use a wig, or will they now use her normal hair as a foundation and give her extensions, or will they really give Dany a brand new hairdo in S8. Thoughts? Edit: I guess Dany suddenly becoming short-haired would fit with the "Third and last last shocking revelation" that supposed to happen in S8. I'm not really worried either way, the makeup-team has proven themselves to be very competent, they can probably make it work.
  3. I thought it was safe to assume that most (all?) Wildlings who didn't flee south of the wall are dead at this point, having been hunted down by the WW's and added to the AotD. It certainly seemed that way when Tormund said that "most of the Wildlings are at Hardhome", and we know what happened at Hardhome. :/ As for the White Walkers, they may or may not end up defeated next season. If they end up defeated, there is very little point in the continued existence of the Nightswatch. Edit: @Meera of Tarth We'll just have to agree to disagree on the flow of time in the show. We can probably both agree on the fact that the show could've done a much better job of telling the audience how much time that actually passes during the episodes/seasons, so we wouldn't have to assume, estimate and go by the very few instances where people actually talk about how old they are. Due to the lack of actual evidence and facts given to us both by the show, we're both end up having to assume how much time that actually passes, and neither of us will be able to convince the other. I'm sticking with the "1 season is roughly 1 year"-theory, especially since it removes or explains many of the strange time-jumps and quick-travels that occur on-screen and simply makes more sense to me.
  4. He didn't twist your words, it was his way of saying that Jamie, Brienne and possibly Sandor have a large chance of ending up dead, so there won't be a happy romance in the end for these pairings.
  5. Fair enough, and yes we probably do, as usual.
  6. Warm clothes and pure badassery?
  7. I think you misquoted me - I said that the "you need the bad pussy"-comment was worse than Ebola. I have no issues with them taking care of Jons body, etc.
  8. Not even Ebola is that bad...
  9. Why they where so protective of Jons corpse is anyone's guess. Probably loyalty, it was his closest friends who guarded his remains (and Davos ) after all. Perhaps they didn't want Throne & Co to mutilate it or something, or make sure he was buried/burned with dignity. Tormund probably let the ritual pass because he realized that Melissandre's attempt to resurrect Jon would (if it worked) end in an actual resurrection, and not just the walking-dead reanimation that White Walkers do, and because he considered Jon a friend at this stage and probably wanted to, at the very least, give it a try. He looks very skeptical during the ritual though, and he's (if I recall) the one who breaks the silence with his comment about fetching wood for the pyre.
  10. To be fair to the show, Tormund did go to get wood for a funeral pyre after Mel's resurrection "failed".
  11. @Tagganaro - Agreed. Despite it's many flaws, I'd say Game of Thrones is in a league of it's on as far as TV-shows are concerned. Heck, I know people who have zero interest in fantasy (be it literature, movies or TV) who are glued to the screen watching Game of Thrones whenever a new episode airs.
  12. I don't think he knows, but even if he did I don't really think he'd care enough to bring it up. He has no reason to like Randyll (after what Sam told him), and he has no relation with Dickon. Dany and the Tarlys are (or rather, were) at war - The Tarlys could've just as easily had died on the battlefield. Just because they somehow survived the battle and was brought before her as PoW's doesn't mean she must show them mercy; as the victor she can have them executed for whatever reasons she fancies, at least she gave Randyll several choices and he chose death. Technically Dany could've sentenced Randyll to death for treason (he did betray her ally, Olenna Tyrell) just as Jon would've sentenced Smalljon Umber and Rickard Karstark to death if they had survived the Battle of the Bastards. They might bring it up in regards to Sam at some point: "Hey Sam, nice to see you. By the way, my wife-to-be had your father and brother executed, no hard feelings right?". He'll get over it though I'm sure, he hated his father and he's pragmatic enough to realize that Dickon chose his own fate. If anything their deaths might open up the fact that Sam might end up Lord Tarly of Horn Hill and Warden of the South in the end. It's not like the Nightswatch is needed with all the Wildlings south of the wall and the White Walkers defeated.
  13. "I will not punish a son for the sins of his father." Being a blood relative doesn't automatically make you like someone, especially if you never met the person and have no relation with them. He can still hate his grandfather for killing his other grandfather, we don't get to chose our parents and grandparents.
  14. Yes: "Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come." And it ends when you die. Jon died in S5E10.
  15. Well, possibly. They don't seem to be in a rush though, and if there's any truth behind the "It was a trap from the NK"-theory it makes sense that they would wait until Daenerys showed up anyway, so they could let the lake refreeze on it's own.
