  1. Ashes Of Westeros

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    The LF's plot line was one of the most poorly written and executed. Back in 1928 critic Van Dine wrote "20 Rules For Writing Detective Stories". Many of them could be applied to other genres of fiction to some extension. The first of them states: "The reader must have equal opportunity with the detective for solving the mystery." Another one is: "The culprit must be determined by logical deductions — not by accident or coincidence or unmotivated confession." Exposing LF is almost a classic crime story. In order to find out the truth one (in this case Arya and Sansa) has to put together all the information they know and gather evidence. The main difference is that audience knows who is the murderer but the characters have to put it all together. Solving this mystery with the help of some magical power and off-screen random revelations is just a lazy writing, breaking all laws of fiction.

    Wolfs Blood Traits?

    Good point. But he was too small when he was taken away fro Stark household, so he could have forgotten his Stark-ness.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    There is another ginger in Sandor's arc: Mycah. Sandor refered him as "ginger" when he was begging Arya to kill him. Remarkable, he mentioned another ginger - Sansa - in this speech too and apparently in reference to BwBB night. Both episodes weren't his brightest moments. So Sandor's relationship to ginger isn't trouble-free. But what we know (and he know too, probably) that Arya has forgiven him for Mycah, b/c she refused to kill him. And Sansa isn't angry at him for his behavior after BwBB (at least in the books, the show just didn't address it).

    What is the role of Gendry?

    I just rewatched this part and couldn't stop laughing. The men have been without women far too long it seems I like the idea of Gendry being Arya's disaster relief force, probably he will have the same on effect on Jon, who is known for his yolo decision making, too.

    Just the case! And Jorah (like all other people in the show) never questioned how come Jon left the NW.

    Summoning the season, I found stupid that all important communication happens off-screen like Bran telling Sansa and Arya about LF. Or it doesn't happen at all, leaving a huge elephant in the room like Jon and Gendry never mentioned Arya at all. Or Brienne never mentioning Sansa to The Hound and vice versa. I understand it should be a surprising revelation at some point, but it's just stupid, because they obviously avoid them.

    I really hope they are fake. It's too bad!

    Can we talk about Jon?

    Great post! Jon's death and abandoning the NW were never fully explained.

    Foreshadowing doesn't scream. Foreshadowing is always subtle. If Sandor says "it isn't even you anymore", why would he threaten him?

    Can we talk about Jon?

    I tried my best but I can't understand why Jon is considered a good leader, when he screws up all the task given to him. He had good intentions, true, but all his decisions are impulsive. According to show logic, Jon should be stabbed again, this time by the Northern lords, b/c/ of his decisions.

    I really hope you meant it as sarcasm. For me it sounded that The Hound just let it go. So no Cleganebowl

    The wight hunt achieved an important result of recruiting Jaime. Hahaha not totally pointless Dany would be happy to learn that she sacrificed her dragon to convince her dad's murderer. *sarcasm

    My impression was that they just wanted to wrap it up quickly. It was a very cheap trick: everything happened off screen. And where was Lyanna Mormont? Why didn't she say anything? LF deserved a more spectacular end. Apparently he has whole footage, but can't see the final cut. So he provides relevant information randomly (and very conveniently)
