    So that's why Jon needs LF's teleporter. Now I get it. It'll be interesting to see how Cersei's pregnancy plays out, if that rumour is true. Apart from everything you stated, she's an unmarried Queen in Westeros who recently had to undergo a Walk of Shame for adulterous acts. Is the pregnancy planned or accidental? I really want to see the scene where she decides to keep her baby. So what if this isn't the 21st Century, yo?

    You should be writing for the show, LOW BTW does Jon fly on a dragon to go beyond the Wall this season? Or only Dany?

    Thanks for the link! That's a pretty accurate review of how everyone is just illogical, idiotic and/or heartless on the show. I hope we see more such reviews this year. This is so true. Although they'll try their hardest to turn Jon, Tyrion and Dany into heroes which the audience should root for, I'm rooting for the NK. The unfortunate thing, however, is that this reviewer seems to think this is an accurate reflection of the books, which it is not. I've been saying for a while that GRRM should really come out and state in no uncertain terms that the books and the show are on separate paths now; they are two entirely different stories.

    Without a doubt. Really? Most of the critics in fact were praising the show from what I remember.....specially Sansa's character was a hit among the faux-feminists. I don't remember any mainstream criticism for the show, do you have links? Jon is one of their favs but only because he can do battle and action scenes. When it comes to actually writing the character they fail miserably.

    @Tijgy I edited the OP to include it. @Lover of the North Sadly, the major prominence in the show is given only to a few characters - the Lannisters, Dany and Jon. The showrunners have never cared much about the Stark kids so I'm not holding out much hope for them; even though you're right that Lads may not have known the Northern storyline/ might have added some stuff himself. I suspect we might get a few touching reunion scenes.....the rest of the season for them looks bad however. Essentially LF tries to play Sansa v/s Arya in a lame way (even though, all the action is happening south and that's what LF ideally should be interested in) and then I could imagine some even more idiotic sequence where Bran has a series of visions seeing what LF has done and then tells Sansa, resulting in Arya finally killing him. The whole thing is an insult to the abilities and intelligence of all three characters involved. On Jon not having an emotional reaction, I don't know. Set photos indicate that Arya will be in Winterfell in time to meet Jon; so basically Jon may or may not have any emotional reaction learning of Bran's existence. Coming from this show, I'm totally not surprised at all.

    This isn't confirmed yet, isn't it? However, this ranks along with the boat sex scene set simultaneously to the images of the Wall falling, as a travesty in writing, something so idiotic and unnecessary one wonders if they were sober when they came up with it.

    So much this. There are times, like the decision to cut Aegon out or move Sansa North, I can somewhat understand (even though the Sansa thing was a debacle.) This stuff - getting a simple prop dragonhorn and executing this storyline - I mean, it beats me why they don't do such obvious things and instead choose to make every character act inconsistent and moronic. It's quite clear from their writing process that they write only with the intent of shock, battles, spectacle and to give prominence to a few characters (Cersei, Jon, Dany) not with an intent of plot or storytelling coherence. You can see that from the way characters are totally wasted - see Dorne, the Stark kids, Euron, even Tyrion, etc. I think they sat down for Season 7, wondered how to squeeze in as many battles, dragons and ice zombies as possible, and throw in an evil but super competent villain (reminds you of Ramsay, anyone?) and a romance between the two hot leads (executed so cheesily and badly that it seems like something lifted from fanfiction.) They've gone full Hollywood Fast-and-Furious movie kind of route. Snazzy action, badly developed romance, clear cut baddies and heroes, etc. Which is fine - this stuff brings in the moolah. What is ridiculous is that GOT tries to dress itself up as some big-time quality storytelling, which it's not. It's simply brainless popcorn entertainment, unfortunately posing as a classic.

    As I outlined in the older thread, this baffling reason by the showrunners to keep Cersei alive is really at the root of this whole ridiculous wight hunt and many of the other nonsensical narrative choices, like the Tarly deception this season. I seriously can't think of a reason why they would want to keep her alive at this point, except that they overly like the character/Lena Headey. The writing is so bad this season that I think they have even stopped trying. It's the easiest thing in the world to have followed the book at this point and made Euron into a crazed magical narcissist and an extremely formidable foe for Dany to fight - it would offset the extreme overpowering of Dany's coalition (seriously, 3 dragons, Unsullied, Martells, 3/4th of Tyrells, Dothraki ???) What would it have taken for them to introduce the dragon horn and make Euron snatch/kill one of Dany's dragons, thus adding tension to the whole clash ? At this point I simply can't even see the reason for them casting Euron in the show. Just to kill the awful sand snakes and Yara?? All of this is unfortunately a consequence of their immensely poor writing choices from the past two seasons. Fortunately, it doesn't seem like any of this crap is going to be featured in the books.

  11. As the filming of S7 began, some Season 7 leaks began making the round on the Interwebs. An intrepid fan has collected them here: https://www.reddit.com/r/freefolk/comments/57w3yw/my_awayforthelads_season_7_spoiler_timeline/ Filming information released so far has corraborated the leaks pretty strongly, so for now, we can comfortably accept these as "mostly true" . Feel free to voice any and all criticism of the leaks in this thread. ETA: Discussion of why people disliked something is permitted, but remember the topic at hand: this is not a debate thread, it's a discussion thread specifically about details or events that posters disliked. Posts that ignore this will be considered off-topic.

    Wouldn't that be applicable to mostly the concept of time? What else would that be applicable to?
