  1. The Mad Genius Of Petyr Baelish

    It's gonna be interesting to see where Littlefinger goes from here on out. Until now, he's been the Teflon Player of the game of thrones.. Always slipping and sneaking through the cracks, never making enemies, always accomplishing his goals, never failing to use an opportunity. If what he has told Sansa about his future plans can be believed, though.. His double-dealing days are over. He can't play one side against the other once he goes through with it. Sansa is Littlefinger's 'nuclear option'.. That is, as soon as 'Littlefingers bastard daughter' is revealed to be Sansa Stark and she is wed to the Lord of the Vale, everyone will know Littlefinger was the one who smuggled her out of King's Landing. The Lannisters are hardly going to be thrilled. It's not exactly a bomb proof plan either.. He has to retake the North from Bolton. Granted, the lords of the Vale seem to consist mostly of good old allies of House Stark, and will probably have loyal bannermen like the Umbers, Mormonts and Glovers rallying behind them, but it's still not Littlefinger's usual 'safe bet'. Maybe he has an 'in' with Lord Manderly..
  2. How Would You Rate Episode 107?

    Music?! Are you guys kidding me? This is why I watch HBO. Watch 'The Wire'. The only music is the music that is in the environment. Granted, GoT has a little more, but not a lot. That's a GOOD THING. Music rarely adds to a scene. If a producer needs music to hammer into his viewers' heads that 'LISTEN THIS SCENE IS TOTALLY DRAMATIC' he has failed.
  3. How Would You Rate Episode 107?

    Yeah, that's very subjective and personal. Here's how I see it; you have your opinion, others have theirs. There's nothing that says one is more valid or more 'true' than the other. I don't see how you can come out and say that you 'see the truth' while others are just baaah'ing along. It's your opinion, and it's worth just as much as anyone else's. :/ Anyway, I disagree - I think the only real low point of this episode was the Littlefinger whore scene. Sure, the producers may have felt that LF needed more exposition.. but why so long? and gratuitous? It might just be that I dislike the way they've made a non-book prostitute a recurring character that messes up our story lines. :P It seems like they meant to include the subplot where Jon makes sure Sam ends up as Aemon's steward, going from his dialogue. 'I see Ser Alliser's revenge'.. Revenge for what? The scenes they filmed, that were left on the cutting floor in favor of Roz eating out another prostitute? :worried: I loved Charles Dance as Tywin, and I don't think dressing the stag was out of character. He's rich and powerful, but he's not a lofty lord who sits on pillows. He gets his hands dirty. Dressing his own kill illustrates that.. and the kill being a stag was a nice bit of symbolism. Well, at least I thought so. :unsure:
  4. High Valyrian

    I see the Valyrian languages becoming more important later on, as But I suppose for consistency they would have to speak it in Slaver's Bay as well. Maybe it's too much, I don't know.
  5. High Valyrian

    I asked David Peterson himself, and while he hasn't yet heard anything about whether there will be Valyrian language(s) in the show, he's aware of the roles of High Valyrian and Braavosi in the series and would be up for the job if HBO comes asking. :wideeyed: He also suggested making our wish for the languages clear to HBO via Twitter and Facebook. I've made two tweets earlier at the @GameOfThrones account, both complaining about their raffles and store only being available in the US, UK and Ireland, so I don't think I'm the right messenger. :lol:
  6. High Valyrian

    To me, since they went to the trouble of creating Dothraki for the first season, they're gonna need the various Valyrian variations for the Braavos and Slaver's Bay storylines. It's either that or have everyone in Braavos and the Slaver's Bay cities speak the common tongue with a Syrio accent. They already discounted that path for the Dothraki, surely they can't call it 'good enough' for the later seasons either?
