  1. I will be happy enough if they just finish the original concept and show.
  2. It seems the kingdom had been at odds with itself for a long, long time. The Game of Thrones was an ongoing series of alignments, cabals, plots, entanglements and conflict, for as long as the kingdom had existed. What we are reading about here, was just the latest iteration of the conflict. Pretty much like things have been for as long as we can back track human history.
  3. it would be pointless, stupid, and a waste of air time to bring Shae back into the story arc, but then being pointless, stupid, and a waste of air time has not stopped D&D before.
  4. I ran across this article, and it explains how the seasons might be explained.
  5. I have felt, all this season, that the book has been abandoned by the writers, and they are just careening around, from event to event, like loose cannons.
  6. today, in the real world? Maybe. In Westeros, given the way life was there, and then, I stand by my statement. It was ludicrous. It's kind of like the bad guy saying put down your weapon, or I'll shoot my hostage. Knowing all the time that as soon as you toss your gun, the fellow will kill you both.
  7. stunned by the River Run silliness. That Edmure would sell out his family, his friends, his heritage, over the welfare of a child he does not know, has not seen, and won't ever see. In the time frame we are looking at, with the conflicts, the wars, the world view, the 'way things are', it's ludicrous that Edmure would turn the fortress over to the Lannisters like that. It was very disappointing, to see reality (or what usually passes for reality in Westeros), suspended, simply because the script writers could not do better than that. Just briefly, the silliness with Arya, badly wounded, then bounding around like some parkour athlete, was insulting to our intelligence. I did like the timely appearance of Dany, but thought those in the room were slow to show their obeisance.
  8. just an awful episode. Poorly written, Poorly acted. The further the story goes without guidance from the book, the more like a loose cannon it seems. All the writer seems to do, is kick the can, poorly, down the road.
  9. whole thing came as a surprise. I was expecting to see dragons in action. Daenerys still looks great au naturel
  10. all things considered, it wasn't that bad
  11. Heading Into season 6, with zero guidance from George Martin is as much a leap of faith, as was Sansa falling off the wall. I agree with the thought that her character in the HBO story is weak, indecisive, and does not engender respect or much interest. Still, it's the only Sansa in town, and I am happier with her being alive, than winding up in a dog's belly.
  12. I am still unsure of where Victarion's ultimate loyalty is placed. Looks like, win or lose, he may go with several different choices.
