  1. Jon Snow, King of the north and Vale

    It kind of makes you think when people easily believe an explanation like "My own brothers murdered me because I let the wildlings in, but then I resurrected and it's all good now. I'm not really a deserter, you see." Doesn't it?
  2. Jon Snow, King of the north and Vale

    Jon is the Lord Commander who let the wildlings in, he was even murdered for it as a traitor. I'm pretty sure that alone would have made him very unpopular among the Northerners. I don't even understand how Jon managed to convince people to fight beside the wildlings.
  3. Jon Snow, King of the north and Vale

    It makes zero sense to me that even the Northmen would want as King in the North some Stark bastard they barely knew with no legitimate claim to anything. They should all be trying to marry Sansa and become the next Lord of Winterfell. Why Jon? He lost the battle, Davos was the real commander. All Jon did was a stupid suicide run toward Ramsay. I don't think that impressed anyone. Unless Sansa chooses to support him, Jon has just become such a traitorous bastard, literally. I don't think Jon would do that to his sister (not to mention Bran, who is the true Lord of Winterfell). It seems like bad writing to me.
  4. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    Thanks, Maester Llama. The Goodreads email really surprised me since I had heard nothing about this release, though I knew Lynch had some prequels planned.
  5. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    I just got this from Goodreads: Any additional news?
  6. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    I only liked it because my expectations were very low after RSURS. "Are we just becoming too cynical and bitter to enjoy a good book?" No, Iskaral Pust and I enjoyed The Lies of Locke Lamora. I will read future installments, because I know Scott Lynch is talented and can write a good story, even though he hasn't in this case.
  7. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    I've just finished the book and thought it was better than RSURS, which is not saying a lot, because I really disliked that one. Hehe, exactly. I kept wondering if Lynch forgot to tell about the times they had a good time together. Or indeed about the times Sabetha interacted positively with any of the other gentlemen bastards. Maybe if the book had been written from her point of view as suggested, it would have made more sense. The interludes didn't bother me, because often I preferred them to the main story. The characters were more interesting, the plans and cons were more elaborate and the stakes were higher. I'm also not a fan of the great revelation about Locke's true nature. It's cliched and ultimately why is it important? Maybe it's the only thing that can explain his obsession for Sabetha though.
  8. How would you rate episode 204?

    I usually vote 7 or 8 and this one is a 7, which means it's one of the usual enjoyable GoT episodes.
  9. [Book Spoilers] Ep 202 Discussion

    Book Joffrey would never do that. It would be like Joffrey admitting to himself that he isn't Robert's son, or is there any other reason to order the killing of Robert's bastards?
  10. How would you rate episode 201?

    Statistics pet peeve, sorry. :) The episode gets a 7 from me. It was your average GoT episode and I agree with most negative comments in this thread. One of my own: the conversation between Robb and Jaime was utterly useless. Why would Robb go and talk to his prisoner about his plans if said prisoner has no role to play in them? Scene added to give Jaime the required screen time, no doubt about it. Unless the point was to show what a beast Grey Wind has become.
  11. How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    9, it was the best one yet. Ned's execution scene was just as good as I had imagined, Aemon's speech too, and Shae seems very promising. She may turn out to be a more interesting character than she was in the books.
  12. 7 because of all the Jon/Sam/Wall goodness, the well-done scene at the inn and most Dany scenes, but everything else, especially the expository dialogue, could have been better. Thumbs up for Gendry too.
  13. has no idea what this is for.
