  1. I have a questions. How do you guys feel now that you know that house Stark is extinct in the show?
  2. You're kidding, right? The writing was horrible! The entire episode was extremely predictable, from the dragons burning ships, to Grey Worm killing those two guys, to the knights of the Vale coming to the rescue, and even to Rickon's death. It was poor writing at its best. God damn it, I can't believe you guys. What the show did was completely against everything the story stands for. The show is giving the audience what it wants. But that's not what Martin's doing in the books. That's why Ned's dead. That's why Robb's dead. That's why many other characters are dead. Of course we all want the good guy to succeed, I wanted that too, but not with the help of things that just don't make sense. Explain this to me. 1. Why would Ramsay abandon the strategic advantage offered by a huge castle? 2. Why would the Umbers and the other Northern lords join Ramsay? He's a bastard. They all hate bastards. If they like bastards now, why not join Jon Snow? 3. How the heck did the Vale knights travel all the way to Winterfell without Ramsay knowing? And I'm letting out the part where characters are teleporting themselves all over the place, cause I'm a nice guy. 4. I get that Jon Snow is the Lord of Light's favorite, but that still does not explain why he would just start running all alone towards the enemy. 5. 3,000 is not that big a number. Why would Ramsay bother? 6. Why is Sansa smiling at the end of the episode? She just lost her little brother. That's poor writing right there.
  3. How was Sansa right in every scene? I mean, the last one was just stupid. She had just lost her little brother and she was smiling because she got to kill an idiot. Why would you smile? There's no smiling when something like that happens to you. Crying maybe, because of all the relief that you feel, knowing that you're safe and feeling sorry for your dead brother. But not smiling. WTF? Is Sansa psycho or something?
  4. The episode was really bad, kinda like this whole season. Season 6 is about a 2 in my book. It would have been a 1 if it wasn't for that Tower of Joy scene. And if they don't finish it in episode 10, then I will definitely give the season a 1. I feel like the show has strayed too far from the books. I mean, I get that it's fantasy and that a show needs to have action, but what I don't get is why they have to mess with the characters. Turning lord Bolton into hugger(like he'd ever hug anyone), showing Ramsay and Jon as the dumbest commanders ever, the Umbers and most of the Northern lords are traitors who hate the Starks, making Littlefinger into the Flash. And, to top it all, this season they killed off how many important houses? Martell, Stark, Bolton, Baratheon - these houses are all gone. Yeah, the Starks too. And I see a lot of you giving it a 10. Why? Just because they showed some scenes where some guys were pushing some other guys? Come on! Those battle scenes weren't even that good. It was like watching Spartacus, with a little bit less blood. I am super disappointed. Benioff and Weiss have ruined the show.
  5. I'm just saying. If they did it for Gregor Clegane, they could have done it for Rakharo too. There was no need to remove that character from the show. Oh. come on. The show is based on the books. I understant having a purple eyed targaryen is hard but a white dude playing the part of a pirate is easy. They just wanted to make Saan look more exotic. But it does make a lot of money, doesn't it?! He eats the poison that is meant for Daeneris :D I hope they won't cut too many characters. I like Garlan and the sand snakes and others. White Harbors Wrath I think they were just careless when writing the scripts.
  6. I knew that. But the books clearly say that Rhakaro is a youth that is still growing. By the fifth book we see him as a man, bigger and brawnier, completely changed from the boy in the first book. The same thing happened with the character of Gregor Clegane. The actor that played him in the first season, Conan Stevens, went to make The Hobbit. They replaced the actor and did not kill the character. They could have done the same thing with Rhakaro. No, they're not. They did not abbandon Theon, not even once. And Dagmer was a pretty loyal dude. He gave Theon good advice and did what was asked of him. Remember the scene in the fifth book where Reek goes to Moat Cailin to ask the ironborn holding the ruins to surrender. They are reluctant to do so, they want to stay and fight and die. Only after they hear about Crow's Eye winnin the kingsmoot do they accept to give up. And also, the one that came and told them to give up was balon's son, not a nobody. You're right here. I forgot about the part with the cook :) You may be right here as well. Though he may play a bigger part in the books that follow. Salladhor Saan is a Lysene pirate. The Lysene have white-blond hair, blue eyes and smooth fair skin. I know. But it still makes no sense. The talk almost always comes to the financial part. People keep telling me that the actors need to be paid. But it's not like the show is not making any money. I would guess it makes a whole lot of money. A buttload of money. A Scrooge McDuck load of money. And we're still talking about paying actors?! Come on! That would just be wrong. Then they should also scrap the sand snakes, the damphair, Stannis' knights, the rest of the tyrells, etc.
  7. I took a look at the scene again. Robb and Talissa got married under a huge tree! Not a Weirwood, but a tree non the less. And they spoke the words of the seven...... WEAK! The actors carried the show this season. That is the truth of it. Tyrion, Joffrey, Theon, Jaquen, Jamie - I love these characters more because of the actors that gave them life! What is dead may never die!!!! .... sorry about that. Theon's speach still has me in its trance... :D
  8. Good point. However, Robb's religion is not that of the Seven and neither is Tallisa's(if she is from Volantis). I doubt that two people with two different religions would marry into a third different religion. Come on! And there are weirwoods in the south. The Blackwoods still serve the Old Gods and a lot of castles have their own Godswood!
  9. I thought about that but then I remembered that Rickard Karstark also swore by The Seven when they released the Kingslayer. I don't think Robb swearing by the seven was a major plot point. I think it was a mistake. I would like to think it was a mistake. Cause, if not, it would just be a huge "fuck you" from the producers to all the readers of the books. I don't like some of the changes they made. Totally unnecessary. They did not kill Doreah only to have her betray Daeneris. They killed Rakharo, Irri for some unknown reasons. They made lord Tywin look like an old uncle. The ironborn are now traitorous bastards. Ghost is awol. Osha is a slut. Shae is a main character. Ros is.... what is Ros? What is her role in all of this?! Robb's wife is some unknown bitch. Xaro is dead. Salladhor Saan is black. Drogo is Obi-Wan Kenobi. The House of the Undying has only one undying. Ser Barristan did not appear. Neither did Strong Belwas or the Reeds. Episode 9 was the best this season has to offer. It was actually one of the best in the entire series. No wonder since GRRM contributed to its making.
  10. So Robb swears by the Seven. I have to ask. Does it cost to much to make a scene where a northerner swears by the Old Gods and not by The Seven?
  11. By Jupiter... when I read that, shivers went down my spine... :D
  12. 10 out of 10. One of the best episodes in the series so far... Mr. George Martin's influence was clearly visible!
