  1. If Dany decides to roast her alive, she knows walls won't help her. Like she said, her and Jamies best bet, is to inspire confidence and trust towards Dany, then fuck her over. A gamble yes, but its the only play she has left.
  2. Some of these response in this thread..i know you lot hate Dany, but common hate her cause she is boring, but do no go off the walls with calling her a hypocrite and other nonsense like that. The story (aside from the magical things) is set in a feudal world, were a few rich families control the rest by FEAR. These people won't bend to anyone, let alone a child of a monarch that half of them overthrew just cause she asked nicely. So let's actually examine what she did so far: - She freed the Unsullied, does it really matter how she freed them? Are you lot with your head so far up your asses that you are complaining that she roasted alive the guys that were cutting the dicks of children, and numerous other horrors? The Unsullied are not following her because she threatened them, they follow her because she gave them free will. In Westeros, while the common soldier may not have much freedom to go about doing whatever he wants like a lord, he does have the basics freedoms like taking a shit whenever he wants for example. These are soldiers that were feed the following narrative: fight against this foreign invader, or die by my hands, because we wont suffer traitors..not much of a choice now is it? Now you can say that Dany is basically giving them the same choice, but if u remember what Lannister do with their captives, you will understand that its a better choice for them to switch sides. The only thing that Dany is guilty is not having a good plan to maintain peace once she burns all her enemies, but that's why she has good advisors around her, that can guide her in the right direction. Seriously people, make the distinction.
  3. Here's another way to look at it: Shooting down Drogon was his best chance of getting out of there alive. He was right in the tick of it, with Dotraki all around him and he had Drogon flying over his area, both threats that could catch him really fast if he attempted to flee from the battle. Couple that with the thought of getting payed big time, he actually made the smart move there and gave it his best shot. Btw he went to the scorpion to also hide from the rider that was chasing him down.
  4. Let me start off by saying that i loved the whole battle scene, but watching a few more times (more than i care to admit) i noticed that maybe Dothraki aren't all that? What i saw: - They took the Lannister/Reach forces by surprise. - The later had enough time to form a shield wall, but it was spread really thin. - Bronn says when the Dothraki charge that they are going to overrun them. The charge actually happens, but in the parts were Drogon didn't nuke the wall, the Westerosi held their own really well. They managed to to withstand the initial charge with relative ease, and that makes me wonder, had they had enough time to have their army organised, could they have easily won if not for the dragons? There was a single moment, that made me think though that Dothraki would actually be all that on the open field: when they jumped on their horses and starting shooting their arrows. I could see them easily winning by doing that, but charging head on randomly (they didn't keep in formation while charging) seems like a really shitty idea, when their horses are not armoured like they have in the Vale. Thoughts?
  5. CR will surely fall, it was obvious that early days Cersei will get a win, otherwise her and Euron would have been pointless. I don't think Jon will advocate that Dany should directly go North, he will most likely offer to deal with Cersei quickly, as they can't have infighting between humans when the army of the dead is coming. LF will probably manipulate Sansa into taking the north for herself.
  6. Gave it a 7, simply because there was way to much time wasted on "catching up". There is no need to catch up, people know what happened, this is not the young and the restless or some other crap. What i liked: Frey's getting wrecked, was done well. To the people complaining that she somehow learned to mimic voices now, do you know the mechanics behind wearing someones face and we don't? Neither in the books, or in the show, does it say that once you put on the face, only your appearance changes, your voice requires extra training. All the Sandor scenes. Arya and the soldiers.
  7. I am not sure what are you implying? That Arthur Dayne got turned into a Other after his death?
  8. This will be a bit random, but i seriously hate his nickname, its so freaking cheesy.
  9. Best choice, they seem like the most sane of the lot. On top of that, they have a very progressive view of things, and always invest in the future and now just the now like many short sighted Westeros Lords.
  10. Good points in the rest of the post, i especially like the idea of a Other Day Watch. Onto the bolded part, maybe i am misunderstanding what you mean but that seems kind of pointless? Taking the male babies from just one family won't weaken the potential male warriors of the whole human race. Unless you are implying that more families ( like almost all of them) in the past sacrificed babies to the others. If that's true, it begs the question: why were they ok with the numbers of sacrifices getting so low over the years?
  11. R+L=J will matter in the show, as its painfully obvious that Dany won't survive the war that's coming with the dead. Jon will end up as king, and this will be at lest D&D's idea of a bittersweet ending: Dany gets it all, but ends up being dead in the end, Jon who doesn't want to end up king, ends up as one and probably marries someone out of duty and not love in the end.
  12. As soon as i saw the title, i knew a post like this was going to appear..10/10 :))
  13. This, any other answer is simply wrong.
  14. So you're telling me that you know a guy that knows a guy, that knows that you are totally lying ?
  15. To add what others have said, it hardly matters anyway. It doesn't look like he will have anymore impact on the story, unless he saves Bran yet again.
