  1. The thing is, he doesn't do anything in the books either, at least until the fall of Dragonstone, which will not be happening in the show.
  2. Well, it's a bit contrived and needs plenty of characters. "Loras is gay, kill him" is far simpler.
  3. Well, you got me there, but what else is Loras going to do in the show? The war is over, they are not going to go around playing tournaments and he is the heir of Highgarden (and with Mace Tyrell to set an example). At this point, he's a rich gay playboy.
  4. I'm a book reader who thinks Book!Loras is a murderer who got away for his crimes because of his daddy. I hardly think a man who kills his sworn brothers is loyal. He was just in mourning in the books. I won't "reprimand" Show!Loras for not staying in mourning forever nor having sex without love. And besides, even in the books, Loras is no more than a summer knight. He participated in two battles only, the only one he lead, he turned into a butchery. He's a fancy, entitled, wealthy murderer.
  5. What Varys said is consistent with his previous statements. As for killing Dany, just like in the books, at that point Dany was a pawn to be sacrificed so Drogo would invade and, thus, Viserys could become king.
  6. It's OOC regarding book!Brienne, not regarding Show!Brienne
  7. Ramsay did all that to a steward's daughter. To a true Stark? How much his ego and need for validation will be stroked by such a marriage. I think Roose will have to be the one wary of Ramsay, not Sansa
  8. Yep. The prophecy gives her reasons to hate her
  9. How many roads you think there are connecting important places in a vale? The terrain is constricted because of the mountains. Brienne went to the Vale to look for Sansa because her aunt lived there. Sansa went to the Vale because her aunt lived there. They are both traveling. You won't have more than one road joining the same castles and towns because there is no room for additional roads. So of course they are going to cross each other along the way, because they can not use different roads.
  10. Like the threat of Margery possibly casting her down? Yeah, I don't predict any showdown between Margery and Cersei this season. They'll get along just fine.
  11. Do you mean good stuff like Penny, Tyrion's insanely long travelogue, a Deux-ex-pretender, the Mereenese Knot up to and including characters with unpronounceable names, Quentyn Martell, a huge amount of cartoon villain/slavers, etc, etc? Let D&D cut the fat. No HtH to strecht Sansa's storyline, no Yunkai attacking Mereen as the Sons of the Harpy are enough, no Penny, no more hidden Targaryens, etc. This season will be better than the books (as long as they include an analogue to the Manderly court scene)
  12. And, on top, it cuts the main avenue of retreat for his "army", lowering the chances of a routing. Rule of cool.
  13. That's almost fan service. So to make it full fan service we need NedHead Robert Strong going berserk on the remaining Lannisters, Tyrells and anyone who wronged the Starks! :D :D :D :D
  14. Maybe she'll use a glamor instead? She still needs to learn that, though. I'm not convinced. And, as it often happens in this board, I think a lot of that "foreshadowing" it's simple coincidence. With books this big, we can't pretend every single word, every single choice of clothing and every single bit of anything has to mean something. At some point it's probably "Uh, ok, which colors are Sansa wearing? Well, let's make it blue and carry on"
  15. Stannis attack on Deepwood Motte. Myrcella's disfigurement, which can be fleshed out. Some action sequences during the siege of Mereen. A sortie, or something to that effect. Quentyn and everyone else trying to infiltrate into Mereen, if it happens. Hardhome, if they include it. Euron's attack on the Reach, likely off screen due budget Maybe something at the Vale, of which we are all unsullied. The pits.
