  1. Not more abusive than northerners who used to have First Night priviledges or Harren the Black.
  2. Will Sansa slowly turn into Cersei? I think so.

    Poor man should have had taken his valyrian steal dagger and beat it.
  3. Dany is the Mummer's Dragon

    Dany very much "propped up" herself by herself, though of course she received help and eggs, whereas Aegon is much more of Varys creature. Martin can be pretty straightforward with his prophecies and foreshadowings, just look at a king with wolf's head presiding at the feast of the dead. And stating "slayer of lies" in connection with "mummer's dragon"...
  4. That was awesome. When they stabbed Talissa, instead of "No, Talissa" I went "Yes, Talissa!" that was nice and gruesome. My second thought was that now there would be no added rape scenes or anything (which I was worried about after Walder's creepy speech), which, despite wanting RW to look as traumatic as possible I would NOT want to see. Michelle Farley was MVP, she made the episode. Walder Frey was awesome too, how greedily he was drinking from his cup! You coudl tell he was looking forward to it as much as I was. And I liked how Roose Bolton, cold bastard, just looked back at Catelyn, all "Well, whatcha gonna do. And yes, we're killing y'all".
  5. [Book Spoilers] EP308 Discussion

    I didn't like this scene because it was nonsensical. Melisandre didn't get his sperm from this because I am pretty sure he hadn't finished. (if she fucked him to get shadowbaby it would be perfectly ok). If she didn't want to scare him, then she acted as stupidly as she possibly could. Leeches are normal medicine practice now and especially back then. If she told him that she knows medicine and he needs a little leeching, he'd shrug and let her, as is, she made sure he'd be as terrified as possible after stating that she wants to achieve exact opposite. Maybe she could fuck him before convincing him to try leeches, that would make some sense at least. And by the time they'll presumably consider burning him alive, no amount of boobies will soothe the lamb anyway. From non-spoiled comments, other people were confused as well. the show is confusing enough, sometimes in all the wrong ways, without this bizarreness.
  6. I don't think the problem is lack of action scenes, rather, episode felt like some random scenes thrown together without rhyme or reason, or almost. There was no real structure. I wish they were braver about not having all character in one episode.
  7. Would Stannis turn on Jon?

    Stannis isn't kissed by fire, doesn't have crooked teeth (as far as I know) nor he reminds Jon of Arya in any way, so no.
  8. If daddy wanted to call him Visenya, then Visenya (sp?) should he be. It will be pretty awesome when he gets to tell people: - Don't call me Jon, call me Visenya. - ..... As you say, your majesty.... - Visenya Starktargyen!
  9. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    I think these feelings of fear and helplessness, experienced in young age, often led leaders to future excessive cruelties, like Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great (or first Ming). And Rickon had it much worse! Scared people can be very cruel, overcompensating for feeling small, and just simply out of fear. I can see Rickon as a part of bittersweet ending - there is a Stark in Winterfell, but he's kind of a monster. Not on Joffrey/Ramsey level, and scarier than both, but with bouts of extreme cruelty, paranoia, moments of agression where he turns on his friends, just scary/unstable dude to be around. It would take pretty much a miracle and much more calm and passive personality for him to be stable, honestly. Traumas like these, and untreated ones, basically have to lead to serious consequences, and I don't think they will be pretty.
  10. In the prophetic vague dream, Brienne seems to outlive Jaime - his sword goes out, but hers is still alight.

    Makes way more sense for non-book readers to post here, really
  12. [Book Spoilers] Ep 202 Discussion

    To be blunt, if we're going to whine about characters like Bywater, we might as well just not watch the series, and writers might as well stop producing the show.
  13. Library books vs. torrented ebooks

    One funny - if you may call it that - bit of trivia. I've read an article by Balzac, in which he asked people to please buy books instead of loaning them from their friends. He complained that authors lost money because like twenty high society people would read the book without buying it. I guess it was XIX century version of internet downloads, and he didn't think it was that innocent. Of course it exists to this day, but there's clearly bigger fish to fry. ETA: Are people in your experience satisfied with reading e-books? People around me, including those who very much use PCs, including tech guys, want to read books in paper. Many use both, but still prefer paper version. I know if I want to reread book, I want to have it in print form.
