    [Book Spoilers] EP510 Discussion

    For some reason, I got the weird vibe that Daario is going to betray Dany from this episode. In the books, if Aegon's invasion leads to Tommen's death, then you could say Tyrion putting the seed into Aegon's head to invade helped lead to it.

    It would funny if Winds comes out before next season and reveals that Jon returns after all the talk from Kit and D&D that Jon was gone.

    Ramsay, Azor Ahai. It all makes sense now.

    He's going to be resurrected, by Mel or Bran or both.

    Death by sex, the Dornish way.

    There are no actual gods. They are all myths and legends that have been built up around magic. Look at the Old Gods, they are just Greenseers that went into the trees. Pretty much all the magic we see requires the same thing: sacrifice, be it of blood or a life.

    The Northern lords will never back Stannis and most of his army is currently made up of northerners. He has very few of his own men with him in the books and they are dropping like flies. Stannis may win the battle of Winterfell, but he is going to lose the war. Jon's "death" may also change what happens when Shireen and Massey get to the Wall. Stannis and his daughter could meet up once again. Also, bookStannis has no relationship with his daughter and it isn't like he's been unwilling at other times to kill relatives for his own gain.

    Well, they said GRRM told them stannis burns Shireen. I guess we'll find out if they're lying or not 10 years from now when Winds comes out.

    One way to make dany a likable hero for the ending is to make everyone else terrible.

    Well, Mel and Stannis are both eventually dying terrible deaths. Maybe the Boltons can flay them before Jon feeds Roose and Ramsay to Ramsay's dogs.

    When Shireen is burned alive in the books will people still be mad at the show? Or will they say how edgy GRRM is?

    I think Myranda will be killed in the escape. Ramsay will be livid that he just lost his three toys: Theon, Sansa, and Myranda.

    You can't not have Jon be the leader to take the Other leader down after a standoff scene like that. Coming to a screen near you: Lord Commander Jon “The Bastard” Snow versus The Nights King, aka Puddles Jr. Two warriors enter, one shall leave. Also, it'd be pretty useful to have an army of giants right about now. Wun Wun was brushing the wights aside like flies. ETA on Giant wights?

    Jon: I've heard it's best to keep your enemies close. Stannis: Whoever told you that didn't have many enemies. I wonder if this was referencing book Jon systematically sending all of his friends/allies away from him while keeping the people he doesn't trust close to him. That doesn't end well for Jon. Cersei probably told them to stay out of the way.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    They are overwordy at times, but there are other moments when they use visuals: Stannis' nod to Jon, all the looks between Jon and Mel, Sansa's emotions are often displayed without words, Theon/Reek is very visual-based, etc...

    [Spoilers] EP505 Discussion

    No. Maybe. Maybe. It would be an interesting twist if the Old Woman acting like she is helping Sansa is a Bolton spy, while Myranda actually is the one that ends up helping her. But, like you said, Myranda has already been depicted as pretty evil in the past. Maybe she helps Sansa escape so she has less competition in Winterfell.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    The Bolton stuff was too drawn out. It should have been cut down. The "candle in the broken tower" is going to play a role in how Sansa and Theon escape Winterfell. There are times in the books when I wish Essos didn't exist. But, the Seven help me, I'm actually sort of enjoying Meereen this season. Jorah/Tyrion weren't bad either. Poor, handsome Jorah, you've been JonCon'd. It makes sense, they were both friendzoned by the ones they loved. The Wall scenes have been good this season.

    The Wall scenes have been good so far this season. I give Kit Harington the most improved actor award.

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    Not my favorite chapter. It was a little too high school romancy for my liking. Also, I hope GRRM stops directly telling us Sansa is clever. Just having her come up with the plan to have the tourney would have been enough for the readers to see she is a capable thinker. You don't need to have everyone telling us how awesome she is. Show it, don't say it.
  21. If any of the Lannisters have to be Aerys, then I'm hoping it is Jaime and Cersei. Tyrion and Tywin's relationship is too good. Also, Aerys ordering Jaime to kill his father and Jaime unknowingly doing just that seems like something GRRM would do.
  22. Having Mormont's raven flying out of the pot or landing near Jon would have been cheesy. The worst parts of the Brienne / Sansa / Vale knight fight scene were Turner's acting and Pod's over-the-top imbecility. I thought it was hilarious that Brienne just upped and declared her Sansa Stark. Half of Westeros is going know about Sansa soon. Every scene Bronn is in is great. I think he survives the season. His character is too useful for TV. You can pair him with anyone and make the scene more awesome. You need to balance a drama with some humor or else you lose the audience. He does that. I've railed against Meereen in the books, and never thought I'd say this, but I don't mind the Meereen stuff so far this season.
  23. Cersei and Margaery are depicted in a much better light on the show than they are in the books. GRRM's female characters tend to be stupid, crazy, and/or sex-crazed. The main exception is Arya, a tomboy and killer.
  24. Edd, Thorne, Grenn, and Sam were all great. And, while I'm not a fan of the show's interpretation of Jon, Kit Harrington is great in combat scenes. Cowardly Janos was pretty amusing. I know I wasn't supposed to, but I laughed when that kid gave Jon a what up bro nod after he shot Ygritte while Jon just has a dafuq look on his face. A lot of awesome shots this episode: The Giants, giant arrow sniping, scythe, mammoth, etc... I only wish we would get more Ghost.

    They should have given Jorah more screen time and dropped Daario altogether. At least then we wouldn't have to deal with the awful high school crush Dany has on the latter.
