    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Ramsay was introduced in Season 3. Quite a time. And Euron is a joke in the show. Yes you are right, S05 was possible. My bad...

    Then George should have included Aegon from Book one. Introducing a character as a main character that could be only build up and fleshed out only from season six is a ridicoulous idea. The antagonist must be introduced just at the same moment as the hero. Otherwise the story becomes a video game, where you constantly introduce characters who are stronger than the previous one.

    Totally agree about Dorne. Completely unneccesary and not important to the story.

    Not introducing fAegon was the best choice the show has done so far, in terms of deriving from the books. I don't know how much you invest your time in movies and tv shows, but as someone who loves cinema and television, I can assure you, that at a certain point you achieve the limit of the number of characters that are constructive to the story. If you have one hour per episode, and you have 10 main characters and 20 supporting characters, you have 2 minutes per episode per character. That just becomes a mess from a quality perspective. The characters can not be fleshed out, they become just random exposition machines, for whom you don't (and should not) care. Not to mention that you don't even remeber them. (I see that often book readers talk about the show as it were a book. It is not the same, and should not be compared. What works for a book does not work for a movie or a show and vice versa. )
  5. I agree with you. Dannys character arch in ADWD was a loop and not a forward developement. She ends where she basically was before invading Mereen. (To go forward you must go back?!). You could have send her to Westeros right after getting the Army of the Unsullied, and you would not miss any character developement. What happens to her in terms of character: she invades Mereen, then she fails at ruling, looses her way and herself in Mereen, flees on Drogon away (in a highly symbolic manner), and in her lowest point (alone in the Dothraki see) finds herself again (Who she trully is). Now, character developements don't have to be only in a positive direction. But in the case of ASOIAF, it made no sense for Danny to undergo that developement. Because character developement has to come with story decelopement, and in the case of Mereen, I don't see anything that brought the story forward.
  6. I don't want to be that guy who calls the cops during a party, but I think this means nothing. He has just said what he has said miilions of times: The book is coming. Really, he has not said anything else. Just that he has not give up.

    Which questions need to be answered in season 8?

    But in the show, it is also told many times that the wall contains magic that keeps the WW away. So even in the show, the wall is not just a physical barrier. I know that the show diverges in some points from the books, but if D&D brought that fact many times in the show, they must explain in Season 8 what exactly happend and how the magic could be destroyed.

    That is the chronology of the plot. Thank you. The question is, why could a zombie Dragon destroy the wall, that is protected by magic to keep the white walkers away from the rest of Westeros. How did the magic suddenly disapear?

    I want to know: - what did the voice in the flames told Varys? Who was that voice? - Who is Melissandre? -why could the white walkers destroy the wall?

    You will find out. In the porn sequel of GoT. Working title: The song of asses on fire. This joke can not be told. Rumors say, if you hear it, you won't be able stop laughing...ever...
  11. I know GRRM has made that comparisson, and still does (last example being the interview with Colbert). But that is just not true. If he would have written a book about the eastern empires, the Ghiscari empire, the rise and fall of Valyria, the complete history of the Targaryens, the Starks, Lannisters and the Ironborn, then we speak (nearly) about two similar books. But the history of Aegon I till Aegon III is not even enough backstory to compare it to the introduction of Arda. The WoIaF just picks the names I stated, but goes nowhere near in detaill as the Silmarrilion did. Not to mention that the Silmarrilion is not written as a wikipedia article. GRRM can use that comparison all day long, it just does not make it true. And I am not even a Tolkie fan.
  12. That's because it is a fleshed out WoIaF. I mean you could have informed yourself before buying it. GRRM himself has said that it is the texts from WoIaF but also including some texts that have been cut from it. Also including some new stuff. But the main point is, that it is the same stuff. What have you expected? Also, to add something to the general discussion regarding Silmarion: The Silmarion has the complete history of Arda, including its creation. Fire and Blood is not even merely a chapter, compared to the Silmarion. I don't know why people bring this comparison.

    This is not show relevant, since this "paraphrase" is just something Tyrion asks himself in the book. What kind of an answer do you want to have? Tyrion: "Hey Bronn where, do hores go?" Bronn :"What a stupid question! Depends on where they are and where they want to" This particular part of the prophecy is not included in the show. But you will nevertheless become an answer, that also answers the book question. Do you even watch the show?? I too hope we get an answer. Although I fear the answer is that he is just created to destroy living beings, ergo no other motivations.
  14. It actually does make sense, just think for a moment . But the others are indeed right, lets forget it. I don't want to be responsible for closing this topic.
