  1. I really, really loved this show, but there was just so much bullshit this season - plot holes, continuity errors, character inconsistencies, complete abandonment of the laws of space/time, terrible writing (with the way they regurgitate memorable dialogue from past seasons or throw in book dialogue in the wrong scene or w/the wrong characters, it's feels like they ate all of the old scripts, GRRM's notes on key plot points and the ASOIAF Wiki pages and are just puking up words at random.) - that I don't see how any serious fan could overlook them. It's been frustrating for a while, but a lot of it was only mildly annoying (Littlefinger saying "Only your sister," names being changed because they're too similar, etc), and I could overlook it because there was still so much that was great. Now I can barely get through the episodes and just feel so disappointed in what could have been. I know I'll finish it out because I want to know how they end things, but this season killed the final flicker of hope I had in their ability to tell this story.
  2. Don't know if anyone else answered you, but I thought he meant Lancel. Someone to confess Cersei's crimes to the High Sparrow so she'd get locked up. But I guess that doesn't really make much sense either. Really, why do we expect anything to anymore.
  3. All I can say after this season is: Gods help you, Thrones, now you are truly lost.
  4. Robb's Burial

    I think this is the best info we get in the books:
  5. If Vic gets roasted by dragonfire, I hope he has enough time to see how much being burned alive sucks before he dies. No, you do not break out in joyous song while your face is melting you jackass. I think you're right about Euron wanting to crush Aeron before killing him. He does seem to like his theatrics. I'm kinda hoping we get a lot more of Euron's rise to power and whatever part he plays in the wars to come through Aeron's POV. He might make it all of the way to the end tied to the prow of that ship and cursing godless men and seastone chairs and rusty hinges.
  6. Now I remember why you're so familiar. I couldn't see your signature when posting from my phone, but I've read your Amethyst Empress Reborn theory. You've really connected some interesting dots, and I could be on board with something along those lines. Thanks for sharing @Durran Durrandon!
  7. I don't think he's got Moqorro, but I think you're right about the Dusky Woman. I think Euron is just the horn's maters. Vic can't exactly claim it from him with fire and blood - however that is even done - before he has it blown, and as Moqorro said, the horn will bind the dragons to their master seemingly whether he's around for this or not. Euron won't have to lift a finger to secure most likely both Rhaegal and Viserion or at least one of them and can just breeze into Meereen after Vic has finished all of the heavy lifting. "Thanks for taking care of getting our fleet to the other side of the world and that pesky siege and being such a laughable letdown to the queen that she actually thinks I'm a smart choice and leashing my dragons, bro. Have that Dusky Woman of yours bring us a drink...mwaaahaahaa! Yours was poison just like you said all my gifts are! Time to mark another brother off my kill list."
  8. I can't remember if you came up with the weirwood/shade of the evening trees being inverses of each other or were just a big part of that thread, but I'm definitely sold. It's a brilliant catch. Do you think the gifts they awaken in a drinker/consumer are somehow inverses as well? I know they both induce visions, but maybe the power is drawn from opposing sources that will influence the different users. Or not. My good speculation cap fell off a few hours ago. Interesting idea with the Dany sacrifice. Can't you just see her shouting her long list of titles while being tied to the prow of the ship? The most beautiful figurehead in the world could soon become one of them. Hmm...saying prow and Dany so close together brings to mind the Mother of Dragons, Bride of Fire vision of the corpse standing at the prow of the ship with eyes bright in his dead face and grey lips smiling sadly (that was from memory so apologies if it's off). Was this Aeron Greyjoy all along? Is Euron really dead? So many questions! I've also been wondering how much Pyatt Pree and the warlocks told Euron about Dany or rather how much of what she saw and heard in the HotU were they aware of to share with him. Do the Undying know what the prophecies mean/what their outcomes will be? Do they know of some power she has or think she's the savior of the world? I didn't care much for the Ironborn plot dump in AFFC, so I've never put much thought into it like Euron having other motives to want Dany besides her being a beautiful queen with a strong claim to the IT who needs Westerosi allies and also has three dragons and a big-ass army. Of all of the HotU sequences, I always thought the dwarves one was the hardest to figure out. I've seen countless explanations and have never liked any of them. Now that these guys (who for some reason I see as angry, black-clad garden gnomes) have popped up again in Shade of the Evening induced prophetic dreams/visions, they seem a lot more significant. This chapter has gotten me more excited than most of the others and I haven't even really read the damn thing.
  9. Haha! I didn't realize I was helicoptering you. My sincerest apologies. Your posts are always enjoyable as well. It's important to me to always be nice and respectful to others, even strangers in Internet forums. The result of Southern Hospitality and my mom's all-you-need-is-love hippie influence. Honestly, I wouldn't really call all of the crazy things I put forth theories. They're more the result of an overworked adhd brain spouting whatever ridiculous notion flew through my mind in the moment and is usually promptly forgotten. I guess throwing out silly wild speculation is only amusing to me, but sic vita est. I wouldn't even try to seriously predict where this series is going because I have no idea, but I'm seriously flattered that my ridiculousness qualifies as writing fan fiction. Take that, 6th Grade English Teacher!
  10. I think he'll survive since it seems like he's our eyes on Euron, who I agree seems to be the next serious antagonist or at least the next serious human antagonist. It would make a lot of sense for him to not only be a villain in the game of thrones part of the story with what he's doing now in the Reach but also a main threat in the Battle for the Dawn 2.0 part as well, which would help to tie this those two arcs together in a more satisfying way than, "The throne is mine by right, and I will never stop fighting this war until I take what is mi--...Huh, it just got dark and there's snow and it's super cold and...Holy Shit, it's an army of millions of dead people! Save us heroes from the north! We'll admit snarks were real now!" The other two chapters that come to mind as being as heavy on magic, prophetic imagery and godly/supernatural power are Dany's House of the Undying and Bran's Cave Training, so it seems in line that Euron will be part of the magical endgame plot. I honestly love the idea of Euron Crow's Eye vs 3-Eyed Bran (his crows can't help but make me think of the 3EC). Maybe he really wants to be Night's King 2.0 married to a dragon queen to rule ice and fire as some kind of super-god? I never really got into Damphair's story in Feast and would have easily said I didn't care if he died quickly in TWOW before reading this, but he better not die after one damn chapter now, especially not a chapter that was so damn good its rough outline had me captivated and managed to make me give a shit what happens to him.

    You could always take a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel for some crazy shenanigans. It always cheers me up.

    At least there weren't any asinine comments about how sassy little Lady Mormont is just like her mother. Imagine what would have happened had they offended Bear Island's HBIC. Sansa and Jon already looked like they were seconds away from bursting into tears and running out of the room. I see it happening something like this:
  13. [Spoilers] Criticize without repercussion

    You are correct for Sansa and the Blackfish. I was answering on Jeor Mormont being not the father/grandfather of Lady Lyanna Mormont but her uncle.
  14. [Spoilers] Criticize without repercussion

    Oh, Paxter. What is this sense you speak of? Seriously though, when has that stopped them. Ramsay getting eaten by his hounds probably sounds like the most brilliantly clever, Dante-level just deserts for his crimes. I would have rather seen Sansa stab him in the neck with that corkscrew.
  15. [Spoilers] Criticize without repercussion

    I think he's actually her uncle. The brother of her mother, Maege Mormont, who became Lady of Bear Island after Jorah fled into exile in disgrace rather than be executed by Ned. With Jeor in the Night's Watch and Jorah childless, the lordship went to Maege and then her daughters.
