    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Should Loras be removed from Category:Lords Commander of the Kingsguard, then?

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    I am going through categories at the moment, and I am wondering if the members of the Rainbow Guard should have Category:Members of the Kingsguard. Loras is already in Category:Lords Commander of the Kingsguard, so the wiki already sees the Rainbow Guard as an equivalent to the Kingsguard, and members of claimant Kingsguard such as Glendon Goode and Rolly Duckfield are in Category:Members of the Kingsguard. So it would be right to add Brienne, Robar Royce, Parmen Crane, etc. to Category:Members of the Kingsguard? Just asking here before I do add it to their pages.
  3. Hot Pie told Arya she blew up the sept. If one cook in the Inn at the Crossroads knows, then everyone knows, or at least it's heavily rumoured. I mean, it's going to look the teensiest bit suspicious if the queen is on trial for heinous crimes, and then next thing you know the sept is blown up and she becomes queen regnant of the Iron Throne. Considering how the Sparrow movement was only popular because of its providing relief to the poor, you have to wonder why there wouldn't be a massive revolt in King's Landing, considering the people rioted when they were food insecure in Season 2. This is the problem with Cersei. She's dragged out as a threat for two seasons while we have no idea what her small council and court looks like, and what her people and lords actually think about her. She'd have been run out of King's Landing in five minutes, and if not, Dany could have easily taken her out at the beginning of Season 7.

    What happened to Ellaria??

    The last shot of the show is going to be Septa Spoonella climbing out of the rubble, and being declared the new High Septa
  5. Everyone seems to have collective amnesia about her blowing up the Westerosi equivalent of the Vatican. So maybe they'll just forget about Dany's burninating soon enough.

    Is the quality of this season low?

    When it comes to directing and production, I can't help but think that people like Sapochnik are being shafted by Benioff & Weiss. I have heard that there have been some horror stories in the production department at this point, such as D&D demanding 2 weeks to train horse actors for a stunt that was physically impossible for them to learn in less than 6 weeks. I don't think it's being disrespectful of their work to say that I kind of think that good music, production, and direction (when they're not doing shot-reverse-shot non-conversations) is superb, but that makes the quality of the show all the worse. Lena Headey is great, but there is only so much she can do when they wrote her to drink wine and stand at a window, mostly. Writing is the key to anything, and Game of Thrones would be a far better show if it stayed at Season 1 quality writing -- even if it stayed at Season 1 quality production.

    Astapor is where they are bred and trained, so they’d have to buy them back from other cities, and really have no natural resources other than slaves... so getting the money is going to be hard. And the training program is a rather intense ordeal lasting from childhood to adolescence, so would take time.
  8. Their inside the episode interview about on Arya on the ground was phrased as “You care about a scene when there’s a character you care about... so you care about it.”

    Her acting and Alfie's have been the only thing keeping the season vaguely alive... if she dies tonight, the show will really be over.

    FeastDance is quite an internal book... but, like, you can't make the "happens" stuff in one season. Tyrion "wandering around Essos" (and Quentyn travelling there) would have been worse than 6 or 7 epsiodes in him travelling, and taking a dinghy through the Smoking Sea with Jorah? I don't know how Lady Stoneheart would be unpopular. It seems to me like an undead Michelle Fairley would have given people the chills -- it would have at least been more fun than Brienne and Jaime wandering about the Riverlands in Season 6 because D&D needed more filler content. And like, if you're not going to do a story right, just cut it. There was no need for that utterly stupid Dornish plot. King's Landing suffered from the effect of ageing Tommen up so we could see Natalie Dormer's bewbs, but Tommen still acts as a child, and it's ambiguous as to whether there's actually a regency or not. They liked Cersei, yet shafted her good grasp of power until she blew everyone up. And they even managed to be less titillating -- Margaery gets imprisoned for perjury instead of adultery allegations? Oh, come on! I don't think Aegon would have been an unpopular concept, and if Varys had gone over to his side, it would make a lot more sense than his flip-flopping between Dany and Jon-"Aegon".

    I mean, it's pretty clear that they didn't have much faith in adapting FeastDance, either.

    Too bad it'd be two episodes after they told Ghost to just eff off

    ...if the small council even exists. I think so too, but to keep the "bittersweet" element... I think it shouldn't be about every vaguely sympathetic character teaming up to take down one Big Bad, be that Cersei or the Masters.

    I get why GRRM introduced slave masters as a villain for Daenerys, to be honest: slavery is to be condemned as the abhorrent thing it is. But... would our main Westerosi characters care that cities, thousands of miles away that most of them know next to nothing about, have been retaken by slavers? They're more than pleased to regularly do business with those Free Cities that allow slavery. Also, aren't they kind of... out of Unsullied? They sold them all to Dany, and unless they have magically made the next generations' training take 4 or 5 years, that's going to be a tricky one in your premise. I can see the value in there being a "scouring of the Shire" equivalent, but I feel any sort of main political storyline that's supposed to have bigger stakes than The Long Night is going to be a poor story -- just in my opinion.
