    It is wrong because women are forced into that role and the women who take it disparage other women who refuse. Traditional women are then used to point out that the uppity and evil feminists are preventing all women from their destiny as housewives. And sheesh, it is a martial show. This is like whining that they are discussing War on Band of Brothers. There are many shows that do not do this. They West Wing if you are looking for a nice, passionate, liberal view of ruling.

    The article adheres to the gender norms set up by the patriarchy. Women are genetically nurturing and kind and men are tough and martial. This all is basic complementarian 101 crap, which is used to tell women to get back into the kitchen and birth babies and make sammiches. Why a secular newspaper would embrace the stereotypes is beyond me? People should be allowed to be who they are. One caveat is that there is a difference between Margaery and manipulating her way to power and some submissive homemaker who is willing to pop out babies and do housework like this is Gilead or something.

    Yeah. He is never going to finish. He seems uninterested in doing so. And he should have at least given the show a complete outline in the beginning so these things could be better plotted out.

    Martin has had six years to write one book. Six years... One book. So yes, he has sold out.

    It is the sex scene before death. Count on Grey Worm dying this season. But yeah the showrunners are 13-year-old boys.

    I can tell you that I will definitely be skipping the last two episodes of the season, but I will enjoy the normies reaction to them. I suspect that there is going to be lots of hatred for them especially the complete destruction of Jon's character and the kneeling. I will very much enjoy the Dany mean girl bullies learning that most people aren't that into their stupid ship.

    Yeah, but this is an awful to a different degree. Dany is such a bitch this season. They will hate what happens starting with Episode 3.

    LOL. Sue is going to be in for a shock if this is actually true as are the Reddit sites and other cheerleaders. I've been pointing out for a year that this is quite awful and the normies are going to despise it and have gotten nothing but personal hatred and bullying for it. I will personally enjoy having my predictions come true even though I am very upset to see the show jump the shark so badly.

    http://forum.watchersonthewall.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=117 And this bunch of crap is true. I cannot believe that that is actual dialogue from an actual script written by professionals. And they just let it remain on the Internet. It is just really bad, like Lifetime Movie of the Week bad. Perhaps, I should apply for a job writing for TV because I could do much better. I assume that Dan and David expect us to think that Jon is her "equal" because he calls her some stupid mainly fan nickname rather than the bad mistress/ servant relationship they have set up between the two. Seriously, using a formal title vs. using a nickname has nothing to do with "equality." I don't know anyone who thinks that Mr. Darcy isn't a suave assertive guy just because he uses formal titles.

    Yeah. That is really up there with his speech in Season 3... Did they just outsource writing the dialogue to teen girl fanfiction writers? (Okay, that is disparaging teen girls. Perhaps random monkeys typing on the computer would be better.)

    Doing something like a program about slavery requires subtlety that Dan and David both lack. This is hopefully going nowhere. But it is telling that they are focused on their next project rather than finishing up their current one. The two are definitely phoning it in. There was a lack of caring and let's go for fanservice for the unwashed in the premiere. Knowing where this is going, I am glad that I decided against watching the rest of the season. I'll just be complaining from afar. But it is a pity that Martin is probably never going to finish those books so we won't get a more satisfying ending than the glorified Dany-worship piece we are getting. (And yes, I get that making GOT is quite time-consuming and stressful. They really should have just given it off to another producer rather than making a shoddy product.)

    Tarly does not trust Cersei. Cersei is giving him something he wants. She is useful to him.

    1. The whole idea of the North remembering is actually Disney compared to most of Martin's politics. The Northern bannermen were willing to jump in defense of the Starks without even a grumble about Robb's stupid decisions. The show's portrayal where some houses like the Mormonts sided with Sansa and Jon, some like the Glovers were nuetral, and some like the Umbers and Karstarks were hostile. Very little was made of Robb's bone headed decision to break his marriage contract with the Freys. The North should have been angrier with Robb than it was. 2. The Tarlys are one of the Tyrells most important bannermen, so it has to have an impact. Perhaps many abandon Lady Olenna. 3. FAegon takes away from the impact of the actual hidden son of Rhaegar, Jon, and the actual real Targ looking to avenge her family and get her throne back, Dany. There does not need to be an additional milquetoast plot device masquerading as Rhaegar's son. 4. Dany is not going to just waltz in and take KL. What fun is that. Cersei was always going to rack up some victories. I told people this at the end of Season 6. Sheesh. That is actually good storytelling rather than Jon's wight hunt.
