  1. I’m not sure I follow... we are not given much of a description for the old woman in Bran’s vision. Why do you think she looks like Val?
  2. Marsh is not inherently evil, and he may have what he thinks are good intentions. And you know what they say, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions". The main problem w/ Marsh for me isn't even the assassination attempt on Jon. It's the fact that he's a coward, and definitely not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He wanted to sit atop the Wall and block all the tunnels, like that's not the dumbest idea ever. And to make it even worse, he's a racist xenophobe. He's also a spineless lickspittle who wants to please Tywin Lannister. So, really, I have absolutely nothing good to say about him.
  3. Gods be good... Marsh is not 1/100th of the man Jaime is.
  4. Yup, when you play the game of spin, you win or you get called out on your incompetence and . David, Dan, HBO (and the rest of them) got called out.
  5. I missed this Do you have a link or quote?
  6. What's that got to do w/ Rhaegar taking after his daddy or not?
  7. Aerys was vain and fickle from the start, even if his worst traits didn’t become obvious until later. We have no indication that Rhaegar was anything like his father; in fact, what we do have points in the opposite direction. Also, we don’t know what happened between Rhaegar, Lyanna, Elia, etc. We have only a small amount of speculation and head canon from some characters, like Robert. So, I don’t think it’s fair to pass judgement on Rhaegar just yet, when there’s so little information.
  8. The point is that this thread is to complain about the show, whichever way one feels like complaining, not to debate whatever.
  9. Yes, it makes sense. We even have this bit below. TWoIaF, The North “The men of the North are descendants of the First Men, their blood only slowly mingling with that of the Andals who overwhelmed the kingdoms to the south. The original language of the First Men—known as the Old Tongue—has come to be spoken only by the wildlings beyond the Wall, and many other aspects of their culture have faded away (such as the grislier aspects of their worship, when criminals and traitors were killed and their bodies and entrails hung from the branches of weirwoods.)” So, it seems this was a common way for the First Men of old to execute criminals and traitors, and the text also indicates the custom has “faded away”. TWoW spoilers below.
  10. They kept him b/c Martin told them he had important plans for Rickon, and then they did what they did to the character! Their total cluelessness is fucking priceless!
  11. Were they really? I think not, I think that’s giving them way too much undeserved credit. I think it’s simpler and sadder than that... they simply didn’t get it, any of it. They didn’t understand the story, like, not at all. They thought the story is a nihilist fest because there are horrible things in it. And then they turned it up to 11 18, because their mentality is “more is better”. So, this really only shows that they absolutely didn’t understand any of it, and that their interpretation is deeply flawed and completely shallow.
  12. Shocking. /s So, basically, they did the same as they had w/ the sept scene. Yes, they hated Jaime almost as much as Sansa. They had a big hate boner for Stannis as well. Hate boners for so many characters. No wonder the whole thing feels like a hugely dismal pile of poop, it’s all about the hate, the vile monsters, the betrayals. It’s so clear they really don’t understand the story at all... Because Martin’s story has those elements, but they are not what’s the story is about. The show, on the other hand, is only about that, and all about that. Honour gets you killed, being a nasty psycho perv gets you the rewards.
  13. Ugh, I had deleted this rubbish from my brain... Jaime killing his cousin just because (he is a monster!), and the sept rape. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Was the scene in the White Tower in the show? I can’t remember... where Cersei tries to use sex to get Jaime to do what she wants, and he turns her down?
