  1. It would be an utter travesty. Given some of the choices the showrunners that the have made this season, I'm not counting it out.
  2. So zombie Sandor vs zombie Gregor is in the cards now, I guess.
  3. I wanted to read the entire thread before posting but time, laziness. Following on from Black Crows theme of twinning, (er, looping, mirroring past and present) and comparing TKOTLT with Ser Loras' defeat of The Mountain. Loras in his beautiful armour won through trickery: his mare was in heat (something he probably planned for) causing the Mountains horse to become unmanageable. Mirroring and inverting this: Howland Reed, his craptacular armour rode against those three knights while Lyanna unbeknownst to him warged his opponents horses causing them to lose. She's the mare in this case. Howland gets his vengeance. Lyanna the teenage she-wolf gets to have some fun. Feel free to tear this apart, but I think Occam is on my side.
  4. There are a series of threads floating around stating that Sansa has been warging since the Battle of the Blackwater. But just not in the usual way. Namely that The Hound has been warged. Somewhat, he's charmed by her, tones down usual brutal instinks around her, which is completely foreign to his character, especially when he displayed such contempt for her from the get-go. Same thing goes for Sweetrobin. And finally, Petyr did some absolutely stupid stuff for her, namely kissing her in the very public courtyard of The Eyrie when Lysa was around. I'll try to dig up the better written, extensively argued and well sourced thread, but in the meantime I thought I'd throw this out for y'all to chew on.
  5. I'm only on this forum every two months or so (More frequently when the books/show are released)  If you like some of the points and arguments I've raised, feel free to drop me a message.

    If you want to critique my arguments in a non-troll way, feel free to do the same!

  6. And in the previous episode he did give an object lesson to the Freys about empty threats. Of course, he could have been play acting for Edmures benefit (don't you want to hit Frey's?) knowing that he'd have to make believable threats later on. One arc that has lasted throughout the series (books too) is the Redemption of Ser Jaime Lannister. And I think his behavior in these last two episodes highlights the tricky path he has to navigate.
  7. *Don's tinfoil hat* So, I'm liberally interpreting the story of how Azor Ahai forged his sword to representing the path to becoming a warrior suitable for representing the Light against the Dark. Here the full story: "To fight the darkness, Azor Ahai needed to forge a hero's sword. He labored for thirty days and thirty nights until it was done. However, when he went to temper it in water, the sword broke. He was not one to give up easily, so he started over. The second time he took fifty days and fifty nights to make the sword, even better than the first. To temper it this time, he captured a lion and drove the sword into its heart, but once more the steel shattered. The third time, with a heavy heart, for he knew before hand what he must do to finish the blade, he worked for a hundred days and nights until it was finished. This time, he called for his wife, Nissa Nissa, and asked her to bare her breast. He drove his sword into her breast, her soul combining with the steel of the sword, creating Lightbringer, while her cry of anguish and ecstasy left a crack across the face of the moon" And how I interpret it: "However, when he went to temper it in water, the sword broke": He was captured in the riverlands " To temper it this time, he captured a lion and drove the sword into its heart, but once more the steel shattered." Right, this one can be read a bunch of ways, but it's pretty certain he's betrayed/failed his house on a number of fronts, Take your pick "He drove his sword into her breast, her soul combining with the steel of the sword, creating Lightbringer," Why that's when he kills Cercei! That's my take on it. Nitpic away!
  8. There's nothing explicit. We did see that the Tully forces were disarmed and the only death reported was The Blackfish's (damn!) If there was a bloodbath I'm sure something would have been mentioned. One thing we need to remember is that this is a Lannister army, not a Bolton army. They rarely do anything gratuitous, excepting the Sack of Kingslanding during Roberts Rebellion.
  9. I think it's to solidify Jaime's story arc of a man who wants to live with honour and how to pursue that while navigating his earned reputation as Kingslayer, a man with 'shit for honour.' So, pursue and achieve honourable goals while making use of his horrendous reputation. Also kinda feeds into my pet tin foil hat theory that he's the PTWP/Azor Ahai, but that's another thread.
  10. In defence of Jaime Lannister and his character arc: You're all missing the point: Jaime is out to capture Riverrun without loss of life to maintain his honour. (I'm not sure if it's in the show, but in the novels Catelyn made him swear -drunk, in chains and at swordpoint- not to take up arms against the Tully's or Starks) In all his interractions with the Tully's they reminded him of his Kingslayer moniker and that his honour was 'shit' So: That made any threat Jaime made credible and believable, catapult a young bride, child and father into the river? Believable to anyone who isn't aware of how he's changed, namely Edmure Tully. His interractions with the Teleporting Lady Brienne were there to remind the audience that yes, he has indeed changed.
