  1. Well that’s on GRRM for making her a relatively passive character. Allegory: a dark-clad, hooded figure who doesn’t speak? Ilyn Payne sounds like a representation of the Grim Reaper, and is regarded as such in-universe.
  2. Nah, doesn’t even make sense for them. If Tyrion’s their favorite character, why not have him do badass stuff like killing wights? It isn’t like he can’t, just watch the early seasons or even the battle at the fighting pits in Season 5 where he takes out a Son of the Harpy.
  3. Season 8 question: why did the living put all their civilians, with no soldiers or even trained civilians around to defend them, in the crypts where the dead could be raised? Jon would have known about that due to the undead kids at Hardome, meaning that the Night King can raise any dead body in the vicinity. And, if there’s anything Tolkien taught us, it’s never, ever, ever put your entire fighting force onto a battlefield. The House of Hador did that, they were slaughtered except for one man who was subsequently tortured for 28 years by watching his children destroy themselves (by causing the downfall of a kingdom and commit incest). As a result, the House of Hador’s lands were left wide open to be taken by the Easterlings.
  4. When it comes to fan fiction, that’s the only place where Sansa can get close to happy since every canonical person she’s paired with or shows interest in her (Joffrey, The Hound, Tyrion, Littlefinger, Harry the Heir) is screwed up in one way or another. It’s gotten so bad that Sansa doesn’t think anyone cares about her correctly.
  5. The book version implies technical issues as well. For what it’s worth, Theon had hoped that Ned could betroth him to Sansa.
  6. Still, you gotta keep a leash on Gregor, give him precise instructions, otherwise he'll rape and or murder unless told not to (just ask Layna). I think it's uncharacteristic of Tywin, a rather meticulous man, to just "fail" to give an order to someone without thinking through the possible political implications.
  7. Is it just me, or the competence and skill of Northern soldiers, specifically the ones directly loyal to House Stark, wildly inconsistent? For example: The men Ned Stark brought with him to King's Landing are slaughtered to a man, with only one, Jacks, surviving. At the Battle of the Camps, Robb's force of 6,000 is about half of the force around Riverrun and takes insignificant casualties, while the Westermen lose 8,000. The force that Rodrik Cassel bring to relieve Winterfell is about 2,000. They are decimated by a force of Bolton soldiers that amounts to 600.
  8. They're roughly the same age, with Podrick maybe slightly younger depending on his nameday.
  9. The latter nearly happened to Eli Wallach in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. Remember when Tuco is lying next to the railroad tracks handcuffed to a man he just killed and waits for the train to run over the cuffs? Wallach nearly got decapitated by the steps of the train.
  10. Well, I took a cursory look on the web, and this is what I got: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.moviefone.com/2018/10/08/game-of-thrones-season-8-secrecy-sophie-turner/amp/ https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/film-tv/amp27614111/game-of-thrones-finale-jaqen-hghar-waif-scene/ As to your question, they used a lot of time and money; figures that I found were in the ballpark of $90 million. Would have thought all that time (nearly two years) to iron things out would have meant a better final product.
  11. I don’t. The point I’m trying to make is that it exists.
