    the death of Jaime and Cersei & prophecies

    Jaime which will be already dead by bleeding by the time she dies, which will explain his cold hands. I hope that book Jaime will have a much more active part in that in the books, but for these fail-at-everything show Jaime this is almost the best we could ask.

    So how/will that go down in the books?

    Well, in the books there will be: two dragons more some numbers of elephants fAegon with his army a Dornish plot that actually makes sense, possibly with Arianne married to "Aegon" and dornish people involved in the rumble, possibly with some Dayne/Darkstar things actually happening Varys and Illyrio plot will actually not be cast aside as meaningless a very different Euron with different endgames possibly the Hightowers will finally make their move (you don't put a loaded gun in the Citadel if no character thinks about using it by the third act) the northern will be way more depleted after a quite longer long night (years, not minutes during a single episode) Arya will be a lot darker and not take a million steps walk to the Red Keep just to change her mind out of the blue at the last step (I mean, she will have a character arc developing) Martin will be able to engeneer some point of view in the town without having the Hound to postpose his "do not become like me" monologue from Winterfell's doors to the painted patio. Jaime will be less useless (can you tell me one thing that Jaime actually accomplished in the whole of the tc show?) Sansa and the knights of the Vale will have a part as such, and not simplified into "Jon's northeners that don't follow Jon's orders". Jon's troops, if any, will have strong personal ties with him and actually (in majority) paying attention to what he sais and orders in battle. Some attention (and funny way of becoming true) will be paid to the profecies - not all of them but at least some. I may be forgetting a lot.

    Dany and Cersei: double standards?

    Cersei never, ever took undiscriminated represails over the wide population, not even after being attacked by a mob at the docks. Daeneys crucifixed 163 random noblemen from Meereen, not the ones to enact the mile-post child slave killings. Probably the bias is due to allegiance issues: if you identify with someone, you tend to percieve that she has reasons to do what she does. If Daenerys had tried to kill a man, or a boy, that could have caused the death of three children by telling a secret to a tyrant, well, we would have people arguing that she took the only moral choice. I'm not even sayint that they would be wrong, mind it.

    Crackpot theory about Jaime and end game

    Euron qualifies as Valonquar, in any case. Balon Greyjoy's one, but still a valonquar to someone.
  5. I liked this. I was critical with some of the others, because of the dumbed down dialogues, but the late episodes, where people lie on things happened during this season, suffer less from this problem. The duel was gruesome, as it should. Violence is better represented here than in some other added scene, like Sandor's numerous killings or what Bienne and Jaime did back in season two and three. Violence has consequences. I was fearing (and I read "unsullied" sites and it seems it is not) that the way in which the Viper dies could have been too much for the viewers, in a "jumping the shark" way. My fear was the reaction: "I'm tired of the gimmick of letting me affectionate to something just to kill it more and more gruseomly". It seems people writing blogs over this are not expressing that feeling. We will see next weeks ratings for the common people's reaction. I liked the long time on the settings too. Fewer, longer scenes by geography, without juxtapositions: separated histories in the same container. It worked today.

    How would you rate episode 402?

    I'm officially underwhelmed by the episode. It was dispersive before the wedding, and underwhelming on its climax. Maybe the lack of tension I felt is due to me already knowing what was going to happen. I admit I was in removal when Ramsey killed one of his girls. Maybe the soundtrack could have helped more. And yes, the show lost in subtle messages being forwarded. Now it is not just one instance with the Viper, a little girl can be blunt in front of Melisandre, the Queen puts herself on the same level of a famous ugly woman and Jaime... Well, Jaime could be as direct and blunt as he was with Loras but... on THAT matter? After pushing a boy from a window to hide it? The risk is lower now but... I'm underwhelmed, if slightly, and for the second time in a row. The season is sub-optimal, up to now!
  7. Wow, I have a profile feed!

    The Heretic's Guide to Heresy

    And I was there, at page four! Yay for me, an heretic of the first hour! (or at least of the first thread)
