  1. Hank left the seat up after realizing Walt was Heisenberg. From what I've been told, that's a serious offense. He did cover for Marie's kleptomania didn't he? My memory's kind of fuzzy because I haven't done a rewatch in some time, so maybe he didn't know.
  2. What exactly is the appeal of Jon Snow?

    I was always a big Orell fan, so I also don't see the appeal.
  3. Jackanapes at the Wall: A Retrospective

    I meant on you, insulting him like this. I mean, with Bowen's charm, winning personality and strategic prowess, he's exactly the man the Watch needs leading it during the apocalypse* *Assuming you want the Others to win and/or are a Lyle Crakehall fan.

    The Old Pomegranate will have his vengeance. In this life or the next.
  5. What's the most common middle name in Westeros?
  6. Your thoughts on Izembaro?

    If you rearrange the letters in Izembaro, you get R a zombie!
  7. How would you rate episode 209?

    One of the best hours of TV I've ever seen. Incredibly gripping, which is even more impressive given that I already knew what would happen.

    Did Sandor cut a man in half there?

    Well, that wildfire explosion was pretty awesome. Money well spent, jesus.

    Bronn leading his men in song (Rains of Castamere), encore!
  11. Babylon 5

    For those interested, the AV TV Club is going to be starting a B5 rewatch/analysis

    It's not a contradiction, at all, unless you take Ygritte's words extremely literally. If Ygritte had said "They won't question you or ask you questions, they're just going to kill you", that's contradictory. Qhorin asks "Tell me true. If your people captured me, would they hold me prisoner". Ygritte's response how the wildlings' emotions might affect the manner of Qhorin's death, not that they'd kill him immediately afterwards. To touch on Qhorin's specific language - they're not planning on holding him prisoner for any lengthy period of time, which is what Qhorin means (because he just talked about how they don't have the supplies or men to hold Ygritte). The wildlings will still kill Qhorin quickly if they feel kind and painfully if they don't. Do you really think Ygritte needed to say "Well, after they interrogate you since you're a senior officer in the Night's Watch and presumably know what the Watch is planning" first?

    Rattleshirt specifically says that Qhorin will know more (about what the Watch is doing) than Jon when Ygritte and her band arrive. He's being kept alive for a reason. Mance has no reason to keep Qhorin alive afterwards. HE keeps Jon alive in the books because Jon convinces him that he'd want to actually join the Wildlings, not to be merciful or kind. I don't know why you'd expect Mance to keep Qhorin alive if he made it that far in the show (and he won't, of course, anyway).

    How is it not true? First of all, Ygritte actually does answer two of his questions (revealing the Wildlings are massed there in great numbers). After she then refuses to answer a couple more questions, Qhorin asks if the wildlings would take him prisoner. Ygritte doesn't say yes or no directly, she just gives the line about taking his head off if they were feeling kind and kill him slow otherwise. How does "take him prisoner, torture him for information, then kill him (presumably painfully)" not fit until the killing him slow? I don't see why taking Qhorin prisoner makes people think they were going to be merciful, I'm pretty sure they were going to grind whatever information they could out of him, then brutally kill him. Thinking Ygritte meant literally "they'll kill you quickly right that instant" or "they'll slowly kill you immediately after that instant" is too reading that scene too literally.
