    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    I dislike the high number of blind tens, so I'm gonna vote with a one. Not that the episode was that horrible, no, I just dislike all the tens.
  2. Woah, Bulgaria gets it right from the get-go. I didn't know we were in such a favorable position...

    Someone earlier mentioned that the Dothraki are the equivalent of the Mongols. I can see the reasoning of that, but more specific details lead me to believe that the Dothraki are the equivalent to a Turkic tribe. Maybe the Avars, Khazars, Bulgars, Tatars, or the like.

    Some history connections I've discovered: 1) When the Andals came to Westeros, they brought iron with them, which was superior to the bronze weapons of the First Men. This is exactly like the events on Crete in Bronze Age times. Minoans wielded bronze weapons, but were eradicated by the iron-wielding Mycenaens who arrived on the islands. (Mycenaens iirc were basically the Greeks). 2) Much of the conflict of the War of the Usurper is based around the kidnapping of Lyana. This is kinda like the Trojan war, where the war starts because Paris abducts Elena.
