  1. I agree. I loved the pilot but felt that it leaned a little too much on GoT. That speech being a prime example of it, but also starting by saying how long it takes before Daenerys was born, invoking the feelings people had for her from thrones, even though shes completely unrelated to this story. I also wish theyd made theyre own intro rather than just a three-headed dragon sigil.
  2. Watching HotD brought a thought to my head. When a dragon dies, the Targaryens place its skull to the throne to decorate its halls. But how do they clean the skull and what do they do with the meat and the rest of the bones? Im not sure if theres any evidence of dragons burning in the text but they are at the least very comfortable around heat, so wold boiling be enough to clean the bones of flesh? Could they burn the flesh off, or would bones turn to ash as well? And then what do they do with the rest of the carcass? It would be taboo to eat the meat as dragons are almost deified in Westeros, specially being the symbol of the royal families power. Could they have fed it to other dragons? I feel like there would be text evidence if that were true. Dragons are so magical it seems unrealistic that they would just burn them unless its in a ritualistic way such as Targaryen funerals. There must be a lot of meat on a dragon so feeding the poor with that meat could actually do some good.
  3. Sansa wears a jeweled hair net to Joffs wedding but since they "jewels" were actually made of the strangler poison idk if you can actualy consider them jewels.
  4. Would Renly have made a good king. He had all the means necessary to become king. He had the support of the entire reach, including one of the richest houses of the seven kingdoms. If not Stannis and his blood magic, which no one could have anticipated, he wouldve managed to take kings landing. No problem. Even with stannis taking storms end, he couldve taken both him and the Lannisters. He could make common cause with Rob Stark, who has no beef with Renly or the reach, destroyed Tywins army and have become king of the 6 kingdoms. What would westeros look like under his rule? Renly is an extremely likable character, using his charisma to win over many major lords. He could face opposition from the faith if his relationship with Loras came to light, but other than that he wouldve had a fairly peaceful rule. If not for the threat of the white walkers. He is the perfect summer King but he doesnt seem like hes well apt for facing the long night, abiet better fit that Tommen and the current monarchy. Stannis probably wouldnt bend the knee to him, being the older sibling, and being the uncompramising person that he is, Stannis would rather die fighting for what he believes is right, however his men man not want to fight for a lost cause. He could prossibly be sent to the nights watch, so Renly doesnt begin his reign with kinslaying, which could helpful having such a seasoned commander at the wall. He also seems to fit perfectly with the whole vibe of the nights watch, living a hard and luxuryless life, dedicated to duty to the watch. Stannis is nothing if not dutiful. What do you think wouldve happened if Melisandre never birthed her shadow babies to kill Renly and Cortnay Penrose? Would Renly ever actually take Kings Landing? he was taking his sweet time getting there. And if Stannis and the Lannisters are defeated, Rob Stark sated and his reign installed, what would Renlys Westeros look like. Would he actually bring change the the kingdoms or would he just be more of the same?
