    Anyone seen this? (F&B article from EW)

    I see the points being made about how the show and publications should be separate entities. I get it, but still think the lore is too similar to truly separate, but I can't deny good points when I see them..I'll just agree to disagree on that specific note. I also agree that this season, the writers didn't do a great job at connecting the dots with a lot of character arcs, but I still think this season was good, not great but good. Which in itself, is ehh, as a final season should be awesome when its going out. But yeah, I'm up to the Dance Of The Dragons part of F&B, the book has some boring pages, but I think Aegon THe Conqueror, Jaeharys & Akysanne, & DOtD, are the best parts of the book.

    Not when the entire thing is STILL based on Georges writing. It still shows in the opening credits. They've always based these characters on book counterparts with minor changes, or meshing two characters into one, ie Jorah & Jon Connington, almost. I dont think anyone can deny that mch the show as far as this season goes, and some of the decisions can easily be explained using various ASOIAF titles and companion books. How can we say, "well the first 4 seasons were based on the books, lets keep those 4 seasons and the books linked, but everything after is not mentionable when it comes to the books". I dont get that. Me personally I've always linked them. And regardless of how one feels about the later seasons, the lore has ALWAYS taken after the books, its not hard to see why. So since its based on the lore, its perfectly fair to use the lore from the books, that the show is based on to explain some of whats going on this final season and any before it. Thats the thing that still connects the show with the books, the LORE. And clearly much of The Bells can be explained with F&B, I agree with everyone about the dragon thing though. But I accept it as it is. If you choose to disregard all explanations because to you, the show and books are completely two different entities, even though the show has ALWAYS taken after the books even in the later seasons ie. Illaria Martell, the Sandsnakes, and Prince Doran, go right ahead.

    https://ew.com/tv/2019/05/17/george-r-r-martin-fire-and-blood-game-of-thrones-final-season/ What do you guys think of that article. Personally, I think its expertly showed that all the decisions made this year, with Dany, the conflict over the throne with Jon and his parentage, the reason why Scorpions worked on her other dragons but has yet to work on Drogon, is obviously based around GRRM's own writing and nothing else. The book they use for this is Fire & Blood pt. 1, the Reign and fall of The Targaryens. What about you guys, do you agree, that this article explained the decisions being made this final season and it all being based on Georges knowledge and writing, or are they reaching to defend this season?

    This is a F&B article done by EW, I believe they posted it today, Well anyways, as a reader of Fire & Blood (I LOVE IT!), I think this article uses it and GRRM's own writing to explain somewhat whats going on this season, which almost everyone seems upset with. What do you all think? Good explanations, or are they reaching to defend this season? https://ew.com/tv/2019/05/17/george-r-r-martin-fire-and-blood-game-of-thrones-final-season/ Lol, forgot to post the link to the article.

    Dude are you serious? The show has made it clear over and over again that the North is like that towards ALL outsiders, hell Jon even says that to Daenaerys when their riding through the streets going toward Winterfell. Its not just her....So thats some what of a moot point, the Northerners not being trustworthy of Outsiders isnt a reflection of Daenaenarys being a barbarian or feeling shes barbaric based on what shes done. Thats just how the North is, untrusting of outsiders. In the case of Sansa and some of the other liege lords who were around when Rickard went to Kings Landing, they dont dislike Dany because shes barbaric. They arent fond of her strictly because of who her father is, and fearing she'd be going down the same path.

    Its funny because some people seem to be thinking abut modern times only. In a medieval world, which ASOIAF is also based on, an attack on your allies or "liege lords" is an attack on you. People should know this by now, but think some strictly avoid it for the sake of arguing.

    Jon (Aegon) and Daenerys

    I think the directors are trying to cram a bit of the Aegon/Young Gryff story into Jon. Im probably way off here but this is my true opinion. I think Harry Strickland will somehow find out about Jon's true lineage, and the Golden Company ends up switching sides either right before, or during the big battle. I see Daenarys at first will feel happy that they managed to draw more to the cause, but shes going to find out that the true reason for the Golden Company switching sides has nothing to do with her, but with Jon, as the last male Targaryen. This will cause a rift between Jon & Dany, and she'll ask why he didnt tell her this before when he first knew about, and at this point he goes Mad Queen and forces Jons hand to put her down for good.

    Thats Cersei and the Tarlys. Its clear why they refer to Daenerys as being barbaric, and thats because of her house name, and Daenaerys actually becoming a threat. Cersei & The Tarlys aren't good examples of Dany being barbaric, and thats all you hear it from. And Cersei can't say a damn thing. She burned innocents alive, along with her enemies of the faith and Margaery Tyrell, in the Great Sept atop Aegons hill, using wildfire, if you think Daenaerys is barbaric based off the words of her enemies like Cersei, then what does that make Cersei? Surely she's a lot more barbaric than Daenaerys has yet to show.

    Yes, AFTER HE DID IT TO HIS OWN DAUGHTER. Not because they thought burning wasnt a clean death, he lost majority of his army for the fact that he did it to his daughter. Not because he was doing it period, but because he did it to his daughter. I think that was always quite clear.

    Not that I recall. After he torched Harrenhal and killed Harren and his sons, pretty much all the riverlords, except those who plead loyalty to Argilac, gave Aegon an oath of fealty, which means they bent the knee to Aegon, essentially.

    I was about to say that too, how is a hanging a clean death for anyone?
