  1. CotF and the White Walkers

    From a purely mythical standpoint, sure. From a storytelling standpoint, no. That is information Martin would include alongside other pieces of information about the Children and Others to set up his future plot (if that was his intent).
  2. CotF and the White Walkers

    If the Others had previously been known to the First Men, had fought with the children or against the First Men before the Long Night, Martin would have told us. We have to remember that the history of the world is told to us mainly to serve the purpose of the current narrative. Now, that doesn't mean that the Children didn't create the Others before the Pact, but I refuse to believe that the First Men just forgot about fighting the Others. That then begs the question what the Others were doing for 4000 years in the North.
  3. CotF and the White Walkers

    But there is no reference to the Others fighting the First Men before the Long Night.
  4. CotF and the White Walkers

    Well then that still doesn't make sense, why would the Others first show up after being at peace with the First Men for 4000 years. Unless we're supposed to believe that the children made them during the war with the First Men and the Others did nothing for 4000 years, until the Long Night.
  5. Bloodraven is Bran?

    I don't see how this could work. There isn't proof of actual time travel in the show, how would Bran be able to actually live in the past, let alone with his child-self?
  6. CotF and the White Walkers

    Sorry, didn't mean Andals, meant First Men.
  7. CotF and the White Walkers

    Does all of this fit with the timelines from the books? For some reason I thought the Others in the books predated the invasion of the the First Men.
  8. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    I just wonder if Trump is the nominee if they'll continue to fight so hard.
  9. US Politics: 50 shades of Scalia

    A bunch of other issues really just means politics, does it not? Let's not pretend that the Senate has any concerns over the nominee or about Obama, they're holding on for the off chance that Cruz will get to make the nomination. Nothing more.
  10. [Poll] How would you rate episode 510?

    I gave it a 9. It was a solid episode. All those 1's seem to be from people who are butthurt about "fan fiction" or Stannis. Stannis isn't really dead, and blame GRRM because he doesn't write fast enough. The episode itself had a lot of jumping around but it gave us good ending points for all of our characters and didn't feel rushed or too long or whatever. It was a good episode.

    I can't help but wonder whats going to happen in King's Landing now. Why did they make the decision to have Varys not kill Kevan and keep him alive to share rule with Cersei?

    Yeah, there's no doubt in my mind that Olly will still be stabbing Jon. The whole Sam "sometimes you have do to things that others don't think is right" speech was not changing Olly's mind, but pushing him further to deciding to help stop Jon.
  13. Best and Worst casting choices.

    For a long time for me Sophie Turner was awful. I hated her, I thought she was dull and flat and she just was not an actress that could act without great dialogue or some action (Seasons 1 and 2 I remember thinking she just looked so expressionless, you couldn't feel pain or happiness even when you should have been able to). But I think she's come a long way and she's now capable of performing great scenes without having to say anything, which is the mark, imo, of someone who is great.
  14. Best and Worst casting choices.

    Agreed, Natalie Dormer brought Margaery to life for me in a way I don't think any other actress could. She's been perfect at the subtle manipulation and attacks on Cersei. For me she has been the greatest adaptation from book-to-screen.

    fwiw, I hated it too because I thought it was boring and Dany didn't come to any important discoveries from her rule. But the one major scene she seems to have had was at the end - and that either means she'll just start killing and burning shit in Meereen or Westeros. Either way, I'm not sure if it sets her up as your traditional savior.
