    Hedge Knight
  1. Again, more power to them. It´s their right and it summs up the success of show well. As for myself I just feel a little sorry that my proccess from reading Hedge Knight has come to this.
  2. Well, of course more power to you and your sentiment, but I think that while seasons 5 a and 6 weren´t so drastically terrible as 7, they were pretty obviously so. Maybe with the slight exception of season 5 Tyrion (and even that is reaching) I can´t think about any plotline in them that wouldn´t contain something that didn´t make sense, dialogue was pain-inducing as ever and I personally see BOTB and especially TWOW as hollow spectacles that also (surprise, surprise) didn´t make much sense. My, God, there was so much nonsense about the trial and sept explosion.
  3. I don´t know what was originally supposed to happen wih Myrcella, but she could be just send back to KL, accompanied with one dornish character and die there. And yes, Oberyn was great character and his legacy was kinda tarnished.
  4. Reducing property to schlock that everybody is doing wouldn´t be exactly recipe for broad appeal.
  5. The more and more prevailing sentiment I would say is that they simply shouldn´t use Dorne in the show, which was the original intention after all.
  6. I know we are now possibly stuck in circle, but this is case where it might turn unintentionally funny. Becouse we are talking about region that was supposedly so bent on revenge for Elia, her children and Oberyn they killed the ruling prince, but when another part of the dynasty is killed, they are out of the war. Dorne was the biggest example of obvious "becouse the script demands it" ever.
  7. Of course it might matter for one simple reason. As a reward for the loyalists, which they were discussing.
  8. Plus, it was the scene with Lyanna that was absolutly right time to mention Rickon, but for some reason nobody does.
  9. Just something I posted on Reddit. I liked Syrio´s "God of death" stuff from season 1... But come to think about it. It starts by him asking her if she prays and than says "There is just one god and that is death". Sorry, I know this is foreshadowing, but did he just offend religion(s) of his employers?
  10. If the spin-off (probably done by Martin and Cogman) turns to be about Dance of Dragons, I swear I´ll... I´ll... watch the first episode and make my mind about continuing. Realistically, I think I´ll be quite angry, becouse that seems to be all Martin is doing in the last years - writing about Targaryan history. It would be interesting to use this fake history segment as backdrop for some lowborn-based story, but that´s not very likely.
  11. As a matter of fact, "Ygg" is one ofe Odin´s names, making it quite ironic that Ironborn have a demon of that name.
  12. Well, the plot point shouldn´t be used as it´s own justification, that´s the far too circular for a discussion. Janul´s main argument was that previous plot indicated that entire Dorne wanted to rebel.
  13. I´ve just posted this on another site... I recently remembered how since season 3 Joffrey and Tywin knew pretty much everything about Dany, including the fact that she has three dragons... And it almost hasn´affected the plot at all. It was only used as reason why Tywin sent Dany the letter about Jorah. Which was also pretty nonsensical.
  14. Except of the Selmy´s actor, I think that Finn was annoyed about the traetment of Loras and specifically wanted him to be more like in the books. His fate in seasons 5 and 6 might have something to do with that...
  15. Jesus, today I´ve heard about scientific conference in Britain about GOT. And one of the subjects they are pondereing is, if the sonic ravens are possible. Never underestimate the power of shitty writing.
