    How is it fantasy?

    I wonder what ASOIAF would be like if it went full Elder Scrolls and magic was just some casual thing you can get a college degree in. Ironically it would remove the magic of the story.
  2. As Preston Jacobs pointed out, Grey Worm is pretty stupid. He was practically the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms at that point and was better trained in combat than anyone at the Dragonpit. Why did he agree to let Bran become king, Tyrion become Hand, and Jon to be non-exiled?

    Arya the Explorer

    She was stabbed multiple times, swam through a dirty canal, ran across the free city of Braavos, jumped off a balcony, had a pretty bad fall down stairs, and after all this defeated an assassin who's light years ahead of her in experience. And lived, went back to Westeros completely fine! I don't think it's for us to question the horrible character that is Maisie Stark
  4. And Brienne had all the power to alter it but chose to let that slander on Tyrion linger.

    The Ending Was very conventional

    Not the point and not the point. I can't believe I even have to tell you this. Bran wasn't forced in because of his race or gender, so moot point. As I said, what we got isn't good storytelling either. Did you forget "forced non-white leaders for simply the sake of non-white leaders" and only see "non-white leaders" on purpose?

    Forcing a non-white leader into a story just for the sake of having a non-white leader isn't good storytelling. That isn't to say what we got is good storytelling, but the point stands

    No it's just racism.

    Why did you feel the need to note that he is white and male?
  9. That book in particular is absolutely chaotic... it says "Symon Gaunt" is Arthur Dayne's father, spells "Baratheon" as just "Bara", yet again changed Jaime's age, yet again changed the Dayne sigil, called Arlan of Pennytree "Arthur"...

    Two Questions about this Episode

    Because it's an elective monarchy. There is no Stark dynasty in the south. It's a glorified prison.
  11. I'm confused that the title is still "King of the Andals and the First Men" even though the North seceded, making strong First Men blood a minority. Wouldn't it be "King of the Andals and the Rhoynar"?

    Where are the sweets?

    The sweet part is that Euron had sex with the queen and is (almost) the man who killed Jaime Lannister The two-eyed pervy pirate was the protagonist all along, you see.

    Favorite POV Character

    In ACoK, Tyrion and Theon. Edit: Didn't realize this was an AGoT thread. Well then Eddard

    Jon Connington

    Assuming Aegon is real, though, he's older than Jon...

    passing the wall

    He'd use the magic of plot convenience in another way, I expect.
  19. If you see a bad "leak", assume the real thing will be 10x worse.
  20. Oh man, there's so many people excusing the rest of the show as a Lord of the Rings-like epilogue. Yeah, remember when they defeated Sauron and then went on to fight discount Queen Grimhilde and a pirate?

    Jon Connington

    Kind of a low-energy prediction but maybe he'll be Lord Paramount of the Stormlands.

    Who can be gendry's mother? a targaryen?

    He claimed his mother has yellow hair, a trait most common among Andals. Having a German ancestor 300 years ago doesn't make you a German. I'm not saying he was a 100% pure Andal, I'm saying he is an ethnic Andal. You don't have to be 100% to be a member of an ethnicity. 80% Andal is still Andal.

    Mysterious Missandei

    Well, if Grey Worm dies, mission accomplished right?
