    Can we talk about Jon?

    This thread has devolved into something quite different from what it was originally started for, but so be it, I'm not above discussing gorgeous naked women. Carice and Nathalie are the hottest women on the show to me. Their bodies are literally perfect, in my estimation. Everthing about them is stunning. And those asses are just unreal. Melisandre and Missandei's beautiful round asses are quite simply works of art. And yeah, if I had been in Kit's position, I definitely would have tried to get with Carice after the shooting of that Season 5 scene. From interviews they've both given, they seem to both be very attracted to each other. And apparently during the filming of the resurrection scene, Carice's nickname for Kit was "Big Dick".

    Fave moment in AFFC?

    Jaime's last chapter, and the Ironborn stuff. The burning of the letter is the greatest moment of the book to me.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Except of course, Euron did not sink most of Dany's fleet. In Episode 2, he only sinks her Greyjoy ships, and there are 100 of them, according to Yara in Season 6 Episode 9. They weren't transporting the armies of the Reach or the Dornish armies. They were on their way to Dorne to pick up Ellaria's armies, they hadn't arrived yet. As for the Reach, their armies were never supposed to be transported by ship, the plan was for them to march to KL. Dany still had enough ships to bring her 60'000 Dothraki to the mainland, so the 100 ships Yara had and however many ships the 8'000 Unsullied had wouldn't be anywhere near "most of Dany's fleet". Euron probably destroyed around 20 to 30% of her fleet maximum, and killed only Iron Islanders in that process. The show is incredibly dumb for even suggesting that Dany has lost anything more than Olenna, the Sand militia, and some of her ships.

    How exactly did Dany lose two kingdoms ? Do the Dornish not still have an army ? Why are they suddenly out of the game due to Ellaria's capture ? And what about the Reach ? Either Cersei or Dany must have their allegiance. In this episode, they seem to imply it's Dany, because both she and Cersei are talking about the possibility of Cersei "retaking half the country". Apparently Dany holds "half the country". I'm guessing that means she now somehow controls the Reach. The whole thing is nonsense.

    I'm guessing the tortured reasoning is that had Tywin been alive, there would have been no issue with the Faith or with the High Sparrow, and therefore Tommen wouldn't have died.

    It's pathetic. The show clearly has no clue about what is going to happen to him in the novels.

    The show doesn't give any fucks about direwolves anymore.

    Definitive List of Plot Holes [SPOILERS]

    It was not a sister ship, it was the Silence. There is no sister ship. Second, Theon was not on a row boat. Go back to his scenes in Episode 3 and 4 and rewatch them before arguing, please. We clearly see him being retrieved by his men and put on a large ship in Episode 3. Then, in Episode 4, while Jon and Davos are speaking with Missandei, Jon sees a Greyjoy SHIP, and points it out. The next scene features Theon's arrival. He's on a row boat, because as you must know, one cannot simply bring a large ship all the way to the shore. You anchor it a few hundred meters out, and then you row to shore. But Theon did not travel all the way back in a row boat. He was aboard a ship. Like I said, go back to Episode 3 and 4, we see the ship 3 times.

    Definitive List of Plot Holes [SPOILERS]

    Sorry to inform you, but Euron's ship, the Silence, was specifically seen by Grey Worm in Episode 3. If the Silence is there, Euron is there. We can clearly see it, as it's much larger than all the others, and it's unique (per the showrunners, who discussed his unique and massive ship in bonus materials for Episode 2). Besides, even if Euron himself weren't there, the ship obviously traveled from near Dragonstone to Casterly Rock. Which would take many weeks. Yet somehow, Theon doesn't return to Dragonstone until the end of Episode 4, AFTER Daenerys has already been informed of the events at Highgarden and Casterly Rock. Meaning Euron returns to KL, Jaime is still there when he returns by the way, and then Jaime marches for weeks to Highgarden while Euron sails for weeks to the Rock. During all this time, Theon still hasn't made it back to Dragonstone. Despite the fact that he and Euron were at the same battle, and KL and Dragonstone are right next to each other, meaning that they have the exact same distance to travel. Nonetheless, Theon only returns to Dragonstone several weeks after Euron returns to KL. In other words days have passed for Theon, while weeks or months passed for Euron. So yes, it is a plot hole, because the timeline is utterly nonsensical.
  10. I have to chuckle at you saying that Dany wants to save innocents by not storming KL. This is one of the most tortured bits of logic used by the show. Her alternative to storming the city is to besiege it and starve them out. I don't know if you know, but that also leads to thousands of innocents dying. A precision attack on the Red Keep with her dragons would have spared far more lives. We've seen that she's capable of controlling her dragons and using them with extreme precision (burning only 2 or 3 ships in Meereen last year, targeting only her enemies, burning only the Tarlys, etc...). The idea that Tyrion presents that they should instead starve out the city is absurd. Dany even burns all the food that the Lannisters had with them. So now yes, thousands will starve to death because of her. So the argument that she's sparing lives is completely thrown out the window. Second thing I have to chuckle at, is the idea that her going North is somehow an amazingly noble act that would make Jon bend the knee. It's the bare minimum. Jorah is her top adviser next to Tyrion. Jon is an important ally. The mission they're on is a plan Tyrion came up with. Dany going North to save her friends and allies and to salvage a plan that her Hand came up with (and that is by extension, a mission that she is responsible for), is not some extraordinary act of selflessness. It's good yes, but it's not like the fight against the WW doesn't concern her. It fucking concerns everyone. It's not like she's helping Jon out with something that has no bearing on her plans. His mission is core to her plans at this point. She should be putting herself at risk not for Jon specifically, but for the entire fucking Kingdom. The Kingdom she claims to be the Protector of. If she is the Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, then it is her duty to protect those Seven Kingdoms. She doesn't get brownie points for finally realizing that doing your duty is more important than acting like an entitled brat, a realization that Stannis came to in Season 4. Once again, doing your duty as ruler is the bare minimum. Finally, it is absurd in my opinion to say that they have "by far the best and most believable" romance of the show, when they didn't have a single personal scene together before Episode 6. They have only ever discussed politics and the war. Sexual attraction + political discussions doesn't equal love. It is rushed and forced because it didn't happen organically, and they are now supposed to be completely in love despite barely knowing each other. Also, Song of Ice and Fire refers to Jon. He is Ice and Fire.
  11. Wow. Talk about delusional. That total screen time count is irrelevant, because the overwhelming majority of Dany and Jon's shared screen time was with other characters present, discussing politics, the war, and bending the knee. Their first meeting was like a 15 minute scene. Most of Jon and Ygritte's shared screen time only featured the two of them, building a relationship progressively and believably. Second, counting the minutes Jon and Ygritte shared before fucking is irrelevant. Jon and Ygritte could have had sex in Season 2 and there would have been no issue, if it was just sex. Sex and love are not the same thing. Sexual attraction can be immediate, love happens progressively. The second half of Season 3 continued to develop their relationship after they had sex, showing us that they were still in the process of falling in love. Dany and Jon are already "in love", after only 4 episodes. Jon and Ygritte had been together for 9 episodes before they had sex, and had lived together as Wildlings for weeks, if not months. Jon and Dany have known each other for a week or ten days tops (I go into this in detail later). Dany and Jon have only had 3 scenes alone together prior to Episode 6. None of those scenes established any sort of personal or emotional bond. Their scene in Episode 3 was all about business, so to speak. Mining the glass, bending the knee, etc... No personal connection at all. Their scene in Episode 4 showed that they were sexually attracted to each other, but that's it. The conversation was strictly about the war. Their scene in Episode 5 was also all about the war. Yes, Dany saw him pet Drogon, but once again, no bond between her and Jon was directly established. The writers didn't even make any effort to give them a scene where they could discuss what they have in common, going from nothing to being monarchs, being outcasts, struggling to find their place in the world, Jon not knowing his mother VS Dany not knowing anyone in her family beyond Viserys, etc... We didn't see them really get to know each other. There's nothing for them to "love" about the other. All they know about each other is what the other looks like and certain aspects of what sort of ruler they are. That's nothing. Beyond that, if you think about things logically, they can't have known each other for more than a week or so, as I said earlier. Jon receives permission to mine the glass in Episode 3, yet in Episode 4, he specifically says he hasn't begun yet. This tells us very little time has passed, probably only 2 or 3 days maximum. Dany then leaves to ambush Jaime immediately after they exit the cave. She returns in Episode 5, right before Jon receives word from Winterfell and decides to leave for Eastwatch. He presumably leaves a couple days later, once Tyrion and Davos return from KL. Basically they barely know each other. You can't compare that with Jon and Ygritte traveling and living together for weeks. The proof of how forced it is is that they have to have Davos and Tyrion telling us that Jon and Dany have feelings for each other, as opposed to the show actually building that relationship. it is the epitome of a forced relationship.

    So why are the dead such a threat?

    Everything about how they've dealt with the White Walkers since around Season 3-4 has been disappointing to me. There are apparently only like 5 or 6 White Walkers now, and they're all officers wearing fancy armor. The first season implied that there were hundreds or possibly thousands of White Walkers. We saw like 6 or 7 in the very first scene of the show, and they were all grunts. Just random WW. Old Nan spoke about White Walkers moving through the woods, sweeping through cities, etc... Now it's all about the Dead. The WW have been relegated to 5 old generals. I want to see hordes of them, they're infinitely more interesting and intimidating than the wights are. Plus the show has now made wights vulnerable to dragonglass and Valyrian steel, so they are, as you say, significantly less of a threat. Jon just slashes them once with his sword and they fall to the ground and stop moving. Plus Dany must have burned thousands of them, so how many are even left ? They only had 100'000 to begin with according to the showrunners. Now they must have lost at least 5 or 10% of that. The whole thing is incredibly lame.

It's so bad, it's unbelievable how the masses eat it up like it's the best thing they've ever seen.

    The show has no idea what a strong female character should be. The epitome of their disastrous handling of that concept was Ellaria telling Doran that weak men would never rule Dorne again, as she watched him die.
