  1. LOL, not watching this season, but this has to be a joke!
  2. Oh good lord....why don't they have her announce her name is Poole and have done with it.
  3. Indeed. The reluctance to show any sort of gentleness of feeling actually makes the show less gritty and real (noting that this is only based on Season 1-4, I stopped watching after that).
  4. That again is one of the interesting areas to compare to other shows. In both Black Sails and Vikings for example, female and male characters can be both tough and show vulnerability. Compare Brienne to Anne Bonney. While the Anne Bonney of the show is far harder than Book Brienne, she is overly sentimental compared to Brienne the Brute of the show.
  5. They wrote themselves into this mess and it would be a surprise if they write themselves out of it. I suspect they will just dig themselves a deeper hole with the rape baby storyline they probably have lined up for next year. It will be interesting to see which side of Roe v Wade they fall on. However given we still definitely have Jon's stabbing, the Walk and probably Shireen being burnt to death, I think everyone can have their fill from the forthcoming controversy buffet.
  6. Yep there was a lot of foreshadowing in the book only the child is unlikely to be a product or rape or Ramsay Bolton's.
  7. Oh dear God that is probably why Mel is going with Stannis: so she can comfort Jeyansa after her escape. D&D should be worried if they do....they Greeks really know how to do revenge. Also, Troy: bloody awful film.
  8. This is a very important point. Whilst there still are many problems with rape and society's response in regards to women, it is abysmal in response to men. The lack of support for male victims is terrible. People's attitudes are also much more negative or willing to deny it such as the lack of comment on Tommen and Marg in general (it is at least being discussed here).
  9. Fingers crossed! I suspect that whole same destination thing is the same as two people setting off from Japan and arriving in LA only one arrives at a port after a voyage across the Pacific with many stops on route and the other flies into LAX. Technically they have both made it to the same destination but the journey and the exact details of arrival are very different.
  10. Well she will need to do something next season: since she has no Vale plot the Ramsmary's Baby plot seems bloody likely especially if other characters can be horrible to her about it. Indeed between that and trying to persuade Stannis not to kill Theon because he's a good guy really....because suffering abuse from the same person totally makes you forgive the fact they basically started the downward spiral for your brother and mother, murdered your retainers and friends, pretended to kill your younger brothers necessitating them to go into hiding and then burnt your home to the ground I don't think she'll have time for anything else. But never fear she will get the great ending of Tyrion swooping in to take her back and her being overjoyed and grateful to him, probably apologise to him too for not being happier with her forced marriage etc. Sorry this is crackpot but I would now put money on it that that is roughly where they are heading with their Jeyansa story. If not, I will be very pleasantly surprised!
  11. Not to mention the conversation between Jaime and Edmure "She is carrying my child." No, thought Jaime that's your death she has growing in her belly. Genna Lannister too says Edmure needs to go and that Roslin's child will be fine if it is a girl as they can marry her to their heir ensuring legitimacy for House Frey.
  12. Well so far this season I do not believe we have seen any loss of cocks. There was quite a lot of disgust with the endless Theon torture porn at the time. However you are right about double standards. If we are to have awful additional storylines for the female character why not have it for some of the male ones too.
  13. Because there are so many reasons why this scene was a bad idea we maybe talking at cross purposes about different things. I have objections when these type of scenes are used as shock value, play into unpleasant tropes, play to the nastier wishes of the dark side of fandom or when plot lines are wrung through an insanity wormhole to make them happen, all of which I think have happened in this case.
  14. Okay that was quite funny.
