  1. Alton Sterling shooting.

    A cop was fired recently for threatening a little 5 year old. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/kansas-fired-facebook-threat-dallas-woman-child-article-1.2705351
  2. Alton Sterling shooting.

    I'm not surprised that there are so many corrupt cops. On Forbes' list of top ten professions that attract psychopaths police officer was on there. Perhaps they like the power that comes with it. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyclay/2013/01/05/the-top-10-jobs-that-attract-psychopaths/#ae3df6073c39 ETA: Like I'm not a psychiatrist and I don't know him in detail but after watching the People Vs. OJ and hearing about Mark Furhman he was really a sick individual that was allowed to get away with terrorizing people for years. Working for the LAPD gave him a platform to carry out his violent behavior without getting in trouble for it. Anyways, I'm not sure if whatever this is prevented change from happening because I doubt change was going to happen in the first place. The same thing that happened the other times-news media sensation for a while, protests and arguments over that, then they move on until the next incident happens. Now I do dislike how the focus seems to only be on men. There was a cop that raped a woman of color /black woman recently and only got probation and the MSM ignored it. Then there was Daniel Holtzclaw who 20/20 allowed to tell his side of the story despite the fact that he was a cop that raped tons of women!
  3. Bad writing or fake arya?{spoilers}

    Arya can't die to be "reborn" in Nymeria on the show when Bran is the only Stark warg on the show. In addition if that was Nymeria's purpose D&D shouldn't have let the audience forget she exists. Anyways, I am not worried. I do think it's bad writing and she'll be hitching a ride with the acting troupe after she kills the waif. Maisie also said that Arya's season ends on a high note.
  4. Lady Stoneheart (Spoiler)

    None of the season spoilers I've read mention her. I don't mind because I didn't like her addition in the books. Anyways, I think they'll have some of the same storylines with Jamie, Brienne, and the BWB being in the Riverlands simultaneously without actually including LSH.
  5. The spoilers I read about Arya's arc this season are looking to be more and more accurate. So:
  6. Summer not dead?

    About Nymeria I mentioned this partially in another thread but I read: Example:http://winteriscoming.net/2015/11/01/filming-not-done-in-riverrun-packs-of-wolves-spotted/
  7. [SPOILERS] Direwolf Dilemma

    I don't think it's the budget. I accidentally read some spoilers although I'm not certain that they're accurate but the other stuff I read so far is. Anyways, Nymeria:
  8. [Spoiler] EP603

    This episode wasn't bad but I remember having to remind people that the Kindly Man hit Arya meaning it was barely mentioned in the books. Her training seemed to be more observing the people of Braavos and learning languages than learning how not to get her ass beat. In the books she really used warging a cat as a means of getting better but I didn't expect them to portray that.
  9. I liked the set and costume design for the Dorne scenes but what actually happened didn't make sense.
  10. GRRM on Gendry and Arya (Allegedly)

    Thanks! :D   ETA:   IA with you. I see it as pertaining to the subplot but not the major plot. Stoneheart is expendable and IMO won't amount to much. The Freys may be dealt with but most of the fandom can't name the majority so it's not major. The Lannisters are temporary and the Lannister's downfall in KL will be more important than that.
  11. GRRM on Gendry and Arya (Allegedly)

    Someone else posted the same thing that OP was about on here but it's not the same source.     As for Jaqen being a criminal I don't see that being a problem. She knew what he was and it was him she wanted to be like. Most of the people she hangs around in Braavos now are criminals. Jaqen is more like her than Gendry is. Gendry hasn't even seen what she is completely capable of which didn't happen until Braavos. The worst he saw her do was the Bolton guard which can still be explained that they were going to die if she hadn't. Granted I'm not arguing that she saw Jaqen in that way but I don't see being a criminal as a dealbreaker.   I think she doesn't think of him precisely because they have different paths. In the original story Arya and Jon were thinking of their love and the conflicts that arose from that throughout the series because they were an intended pair. If Arya/Gendry is not an intended pair it makes sense that his relevancy to her story would become less and less. Notice he changed the original outline but Jon still remains in her thoughts even to ADWD. I would say that she has thought of Gendry back in AFFC but one of those times is negative.   Now I do think she will kill Dunsen for taking Gendry's helm but I don't think that will have much to do with Gendry but more to do with her desire to kill. It wouldn't be to protect Gendry or because Gendry wants her to do it.   ETA:     It was the closest but it wasn't even romantic in a lover's sense. It was more about adventure. & the full quote wasn't even just about Gendry. She wanted to be with Anguy and Hot Pie too. Before that she says she could stay with Hot Pie or Lord Beric and Anguy would teach her the bow. Then she could ride with Gendry and be an outlaw. I don't see it as romantic really because it's not really just about him but about being with her friends. She ended it with that was stupid because Hot Pie and Gendry left her as soon as they could and that none of them really wanted her. 
  12. GRRM on Gendry and Arya (Allegedly)

    That's 2 different sources now saying the same thing. I got it from a poster on here who said their friend went to whatever it was in Canada.   Anyways, on child soldiers and realism I don't think the fandom really wants that because some of their wishes contradict that and I don't see them saying other things should happen because it would be realistic.   As an example, it seems the majority want her to leave the FM to rejoin and help the Starks. If GRRM wanted to portray a child soldier realistically that wouldn't happen. Statistically speaking child soldiers reuniting with their family usually ends in failure. & most don't even leave to rejoin their family. The notion of her helping the Starks is actually just as unrealistic for a child soldier as the notion of her being in a romantic love affair with someone she knew before. She's far more likely to kill Gendry actually if we want to be realistic.   If we want GRRM to really be more realistic Arya killing one of her family members is much more realistic than Arya having a loving reunion with them which seems to be what the majority wants. Many child soldiers are told to and do kill their family members as part of the socialization to violence process.   Furthermore, she should be much more violent as child soldiers IRL are capable of much more gruesome things, are much more indiscriminate killers, etc.   In the case of the opposite sex yes it's true romance is not in the future of the majority. However, aside from the Tamil Tigers most female child soldiers tend to be subjected to things as child sex slavery/being child brides for the males of their group. I don't see anyone saying the Mercy chapter was tame and it should be much more frequent because realism.
  13. I was one of those who believed in the Mel is going to burn Shireen and Stannis will allow it theory. Maybe in the books it will go down differently but I'm even more convinced now that she will die.
  14. [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    LOL, but she thinks almost everything is stupid. It's not much different than when Sansa failed to keep her mouth shut when Jon was brought up in the Vale.
  15. [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    In ADWD something similar happened. I'd have to recheck if it the same thing was in AFFC too.
