  1. There were plenty of scenes on Dragonstone in which they could have shown the women...
  2. I assumed that too but I think it's really weird that we didn't see any Dothraki women at all this season. It wouldn't have cost much to have had a few in the background in some scenes.
  3. All she's missing are the horns LOL
  4. And a related question, who are the highly sexed Dothraki men having sex with on Dragonstone? ;-)
  5. True, but what I thought were the dumbest parts of the whole Sam cures Jorah story were: 1. Jorah sticking his diseased hand out when Sam was collecting the bowls. He hadn't lost his mind so why have him pull that horror movie classic and risk infecting someone? All for a cheap thrill... 2. The Archmaester giving Jorah a day to sort out his affairs. So, we are supposed to believe that Sam literally cured him overnight? Or are we to believe that Jorah was still there for a few weeks after being given just one day and no one actually made sure that he'd left?
  6. On a positive note, I have really liked Sansa and Dany's costumes in season seven. Cersei's gowns have been superb but I think they are a bit too "Disney evil queen" and I'd prefer a more subtle approach.
  7. Where are the Dothraki women and children? Did Daenerys leave them behind in Essos?
  8. And in terms of ASOIAF, I think Daenerys and Jon/Aegon being co-rulers, is consistent with their respective character development and it fits into the theme of building a better world.
  9. I agree with most of what you've said but I think that Jon being the man of honour he is and recognizing that Daenerys has earned her place in the world, will say that he already bent the knee and will not go back on his word. She might then insist they become co-rulers (that's assuming they win the game).
  10. That's exactly what I thought: they are show offs and gold is one of their house colours. This is what the designer said: I chose to make it in silver with just wisps of gold to try to show her isolation, her mental disentangling from her family. Personally, I don't think the design communicates what she was trying to say at all.
  11. I couldn't agree more. I got hooked on the show because of the characters and their relationships/feuds. All the supernatural stuff is not my thing. I would have been ok with it if the White Walkers and Wights remained as they were in the early seasons (ie faithful to how they were in the books) but I really hate the way D&D have changed them and given them a leader with amazing powers. For example, wasn't it enough that the White Walkers were bigger than humans, super strong, brought the cold with them, had some bizarre icy weapons that shattered ordinary metal and were able to raise the dead? Why also give them a king who can enter Bran's visions, shake the ground by touching it with his hand and convert human babies into White Walkers? Now he also has a blue fire breathing dragon. There is no way they can make the living get away from them or defeat them without plot holes or plot armour. I can live with some minor plot holes for the sake of drama and suspense, but when it renders the whole scene or story ridiculous, I can't.
  12. Yep, that's genealogy 101. Cersei wasn't a blood relative of king Robert's so she wasn't in line to the throne by virtue of having been his wife. They really should have included something to show that the people didn't just accept it without question to make it more believable. It's also pretty illogical how she's just dropped her dead husband's name. Widows normally retained their married names, just as Lysa, Catelyn and Olenna did. Kind of related, did you notice that even way back at Joffrey's wedding among the decorations there were only "L-s" for Lannister, there were no "B-s" for Baratheon? I'm sure it was an oversight but it came across to me like a subtle way of thumbing their noses at all the talk of "Joffrey is a Lannister without an ounce of Baratheon blood".
  13. LOL yup. Where I do think the costume designers dropped the ball is Cersei's crown (which is really just a tiara). It's way too modest for her character and it doesn't make sense that as a Lannister she isn't wearing a gold crown. I've read what the costume designer said to explain why it isn't gold, but her reasons aren't logical to me. I also don't think there was a need to give the KIngsguard/Queensquard a makeover. Given her financial problems, why spend money on new uniforms and armour? The new look is kind of silly especially the helmets.
  15. Thanks for that. I looked it up. Here's the link:
