    What is this?

    The ice block was gloriously... something... On Thursday, in a PR stunt designed to reveal the date of the beginning of season 7 this July, HBO put the date in a block of ice and invited fans to activate flamethrowers by commenting "FIRE" on Facebook Live. The fans would literally melt the ice to reveal the date. https://mashable.com/2017/03/09/game-of-thrones-ice-stunt/ Naturally, a little PR mishap is no skin off Game of Thrones cast and crew, though star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau told The Daily Beast the event was painful for them as well: I spoke to Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] about that and they were like, “Oh god… That’s embarrassing.” Everyone was like, “What’s going to happen?” “What’s going to happen?!” “It’s melting!” “It crashed!” “Oh my god!” It’s like, just walk away… just walk away. It’s just a date! You know, I was actually thinking, “Is there going to be a backlash and people will think, ‘F— you guys for that!’” but that’s really happened with every time the show kills off a major character: Never again! F— you! I’m never going to watch this show! and, you know, they keep coming back. Game of Thrones is no stranger to the occasional stunt, but was an extra hour of melting ice worth it for the premiere? What other grand spectacle might they try when it comes time for a first trailer, or a Season 8 announcement? https://screencrush.com/game-of-thrones-season-7-ice-block-embarassing/
  2. And then the zombie popped up like a silly Halloween decoration jack in the box. I wonder if this was a retconn/smoosh of the first wight hand not ever being sent to KL in the show, plus the AFFC scene with Cersei where the council discusses and ignores the pleas from Jon and his letter?
  3. Aaaahhh. This is the scene where we get the classic nothing means nothing type of line when Jon comes back and tells what happened during his... death. Is that really truly the takeaway we are supposed to get after all of these seasons of actually witnessing certain magic/gods active on screen? That it is all for nothing? Yet, as you mentioned above, clearly on screen there are people who have seen the "gods" in action. Oh, and Davos, according to the notes in the scripts (first or second page in this thread), the show has made him some sort of god-fucking weirdo that inappropriately hits on/oggles young women (Missandei), while book Davos worries about the lives of his remaining children (and Shireen!), as well as Davos wants to return to his wife ASAP. Davos was directed closer to this means in the earlier seasons, but I guess another ball dropped?
  4. Yes. I found it both interesting and odd that of all the plot holes, after the next season and then a year off since, they are still talking about this set up (or lack thereof). Details, details
  5. There was a new article I was reading yesterday that I meant to post here that was all about the writing of the show series and they used the Ramsay’s dogs and Sansa’s somehow knowledge as the basis of the plot hole writing. I’ll see if I can find it later and add it.
  6. Watched most of this last night. Animation is amazing in many of these stories. Some really good little tales. I plan on a rewatch of a few episodes because I was distracted quite often and missed a few things that I really didn’t want to miss.
  7. Well, I totally agree with you here cuz Army of Darkness is based on the Necronomicin written by Alhazred... which just so happens to be something GRRM says he draws upon "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"
  8. I want to say comments like these started during season 5, but for sure during season 6. I’ve noticed many hardcore show fans/defenders went quiet or somewhere during last season especially. The “rate this episode” threads is where they ended up coming to reality with themselves, from what I saw.
  9. Wow. That infographic showing betrayals is a perfect example of just how non-linear this story is. And no, I haven’t seen any Jaqen sightings either

    5 wackiest Crackpot "theories"

    Just wanna say that your screen name is pretty nice!
  11. It’s funny how people who can’t handle reading comprehension prefer the awesomeness of other mediums that require just sitting and being spoonfed instead.

    Do You Think Sam Will Forge His Chain?

    I agree with much of this, especially the baby fat part. The one thing I think differently about is when he will lose it... and lose it he does on the Ssinn-amon Wind, amirite? I mean his works on the ship seems to be doing him some good. A Feast for Crows - Samwell V "Gilly can stay as long as she likes." She poked Sam in the belly with a finger. "She does not eat so much as some." "I'm not so fat as I was before," Sam said defensively. The passage south had seen to that. All those watches, and nothing to eat but fruit and fish. Summer Islanders loved fruit and fish. Sam followed the archers across the plank, but once ashore they parted company and went their separate ways. He hoped he still remembered the way to the Citadel. Oldtown was a maze, and he had no time for getting lost. Gonna talk GRRM stories here. If you prefer not read anything that is not of the ASOIAF series, just skip this secret eye...

    Exactly. But for a second I wasn't sure what that poster was trying to get at because there is just so much book canon .vs. head canon going on that I wasn't quite sure.

    This is my last post on this because I find it extremely odd that in a poll thread (opinion) you like to resort to arguments with the voters. You seem to be conflating fan theories and in-universe set ups and reveals. And twisting my words to fit your reality does not make them true, nor does it make you witty. Sorry, plain as that. I've been on this forum for a while now and this tired rhetoric is boring. Additionally, there is no need to quote me four or five times separately from the same origin post. All you have to do is break up the post you are responding to by placing the cursor where needed and hitting space two times quickly. Most threads have a page limit of 20 (?) and using multiple posts to answer me once just eats up thread space.
