    The Iron Bank of Braavos

    You answered your question yourself here. The iron bank took a gamble with Stannis, as it did with Cersei. They surely don't expect the new King to pay the debt of the dethroned one, since it was by force, and not succession.
  2. For Robb, it's actually the exact opposite. He dies because he failed to honor his word to marry the Frey girl. Ned did his duty and married Catelyn, even if she was meant to marry his older brother, but after Brandon dies, Ned marries her to honor the deal between the houses Stark and Tully.
  3. It's unbelivable they actually considered this. I agree that Jorah would never betray Dany, not even Hitler Dany. And Gendry calling for Jon's head, with Arya sitting right there, lol.

    A season of Jons betrayal

    I agree,it's easy to feel special in her circumstances, but it does take a mentally unstable person to fall into that trap and develop a god complex, which she did. I mean almost all of us agree that the writing has been bad over the last 3 to 4 seasons, and that there had to be more buildup towards this, but claiming that it came totally out of the blue is ridiculous. People have been arguing on these forums about Dany eventualy going down this path for years before the show ever aired.

    A season of Jons betrayal

    No, the difference is that for Arya it's personal, she kills out of vengance, killing those who have hurt her or her family. That is not madness. Someone who belives she is some kind of Messiah, destined to "free people", break an imaginary wheel, no matter the cost, sounds more like madness to me.

    Jon killing Dany doesn’t work for me

    Well, this time she did't listen to her advisors, and look where that brought her. Dead and gone down in history as a mad tyrant with a very short rule.
  7. You don't need to understand why different people like different characters and defend them against all odds and logic too sometimes. Some choose to defend LF junior and some choose to defend Hitler with dragons...all this drama is about LF junior winning in the end and Hitler with dragons loosing.

    Daenerys should have supported Jon’s claim

    Birthright and earned don't go well together. They are the opposite really. She goes on throughout the show, how the Iron Throne is her birthright, and when that birthright goes through the window, because there is someone with a better claim, then it's about earned suddenly? Also how did she earn the right to be queen of Westeros more then Jon or Arya who had a vital part both in defeating the Army of the dead? If that is what we are talking about here, because there is not one single thing aside from her helping in the great war that would make her claim to the throne of Westeros earned. Events in Essos have nothing to do with Westeros.

    Arya the Explorer

    Arya's POV's were always showing the suffering of the smallfolk while the high lords play their game of thrones, through the seasons. That scenes in KL through her POV were actually very well done.

    Ok, now I'm sure it's trolling.

    A season of Jons betrayal

    Not sure if trolling or being deliberately delusional... His sisters are not extended family, they're the only family he has along with Bran who already knew. It was very obvious that Jon was conflicted about Dany's ways of handling things, but remained to be loyal up until the very end, and her possibly going after his siblings is what made him reconsider. Everything Jon did was very consistent with his character throughout the series. It's always the conflict of choosing duty or love, and he always chose duty. He chose duty to stay at NW, when Robb called the banners, he chose duty to the NW over his love for Ygritte, and in the end he chose duty to protect the world from a mad tyrant over his love for Dany. He knew Dany for how long? A few months? His pack are his siblings, Dany could have become part of that pack in time, if she didn't go bonkers.

    Same situation? Really?

    That could have worked if she was the sole central character to this story, she wasn't tho.

    Two Questions about this Episode

    After Robbs death, and the Boltons being named the Wardens of the North by the crown, they were part of the 7 kingdoms again, until Jon was named the Kind in the Norf.
  15. Sheiraseastar23

    Independent North

    I don't mind the North being an independent kingdom after all is said and done. I actualy would prefer it this way. But as everything else this season, it's how we got there. It's forced, rushed, illogical and not very belivable. That council meeting is the single most ridiculous scene of the entire series, from a Westerosi political point of view. Yikes.
  16. Yep. Begining of the season we have an independent kingdom of the Iron Islands, Yara being queen, approved by Dany. She leaves after being freed by Theon, to take back the Iron Islands from Euron, doesn't help Dany in her battle for the throne. Why the fuck is she at this council meeting at all is the question!? If the Iron Islands are already an independent kingdom, there is no reason for her to be presnet at this meeting, and if the Iron Islands are not an independent kingdom, they are part of the Northern kingdom, as they were before,( the iron islands are not one of the 7 kingdoms) and she doesn't get to vote, her ass is under Sansas rule. I hate this council meeting scene the most in the entire season of illogical events.
  17. I'm pretty sure Jon is gonna have the same ending in the books, only on a happier note, not going North with Tormund and Ghost, but with Ghost and a certain wildling princess named Val.

    Bronn - Highgarden and Master of Coin? Really?

    The show killed of a lot of chracters like they were killed of in the books, but failed to introduce new ones like the books did, an even when they introduced new ones, it was only to be killed of shortly after ( see whole Dorne storyline, yikes). That is all there is to it, and why we have fucking Bronn of the Blackwater being not only Lord of Highgarden and Lord paramount of the Reach, but master of Coin also. That's why we must suffer the illogical inclusion of Sam as grandmaester in the small council, and why we don' t even get to see a master of whisperers, war and what was the last don' t remember. Because of lack of characters in general after season 4, or the writers caring at all who is left of which house, and who controls what region. The only reason Davos is still alive is so that they don't have a vacant spot for master of ships at the small council I'm sure of that now.

    It's not just small traces of blood though, Robert was 1/4 Targaryen. His grandmother was Rhaelle Targaryen, daughter to King Aegon V. And yes, blood does not matter in conquest, but the Lords prefer to have some kind of excuse for siding with the ursurper, as they had during Roberts Rebellion. Gendry's blood doesn't matter because they've broken the wheel, the King is going to be elected from now on.
  20. Sheiraseastar23


    Actually the Baratheons do matter in this case. because Gendry except for Jon is the only one left known with Targ blood, Robert's Targaryen blood is what got him the best cliam to the IT after the Rebellion. ( as ironic as it may be)

    The Six Kingdoms

    This. It makes no fucking sense that the other kingdoms, especially Dorne and the Iron Islands don't declare independence after Sansa gets her way with an independent North. That election scene is the most stupid scene in the entire show. Lords of Westeros just sitting there calmly watching an Unsullied commander from Essos carrying out justice after the threat of Dany plus dragon doesn't exist anymore is beyond dumb, Jon having to take up the black because Grey Worm said so, only for him and the Unsullied plus Dothraki to leave Westeros after that to never return....I just can't..
  22. Turns out we didn' t get a dream of spring, but a time for wolves, as Martin originally intended to name the last instalment of the book. I'm ok with the Starks profiting in the end, but the way how we got there is bullshit, that election scene was the most bullshit scene in the entire show, and that says something, because we got an abundance of those in the last 3 - 4 seasons.

    Who's hyped for Episode 6 for unintended reasons?

    I mean the latter of' course. The writers have obviously fucked up a lot of things since season 4, Dany's decent into madness among them. But after it's all said and done, after episode 5, there is no excusing her actions in said episode, with or without buildup, yet we have a topic on this very forum of somewhat 20 pages, apologists trying to blame other characters of the show for Dany murdering hundreds of thousands of people.

    The only worse thing then show apologists at this point, are Dany apologists.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    How come we only have one leak of the finale, even though 5 different endings were filmed? I'm clinging onto this last straw of hope, that the leaked one is fake. Ok, two actually, Frikki and the Tyrion trial being the other ending.
