    Good to see you here Brash! Will take a look at the link !

    Gendry should compete in the Westeros Triathlon. We know he's definitely got rowing and running down pat, but what would the third event be?

    Oh, I know--I get what you're saying. It just seems odd to me that after dragons being gone for so long, that we don't see someone raise the question of how she got her hands on them/where they came from. As for the Dany and Jon moments, I agree. But, remember--Doreah did tell Dany way back in Season One: "Love comes in at the eyes" Hopefully, we'll get things filled in when the books come out...(errrrr....if they come out!)

    Not sure if it was mentioned here not not, but I found it interesting that Dany brings up to Jon, Ser Davos mentioning he took a knife in the heart for his people. He replied that Davos gets carried away, and she asks if it was a figure of speech. Jon doesn't answer, but looks uncomfortable and they are interrupted by Jorah returning. Could this be a hint about anything....not sure. It just brings to mind all the Nissa Nissa theories, which of course is a topic for another thread... Also, I'm kinda surprised that while Dany asks Jon about the knife, that NO ONE has asked how Dany got her dragons. We don't see anyone on screen ask that. Does anyone (other than Jorah) know they were born through blood magic?

    Did anyone notice that Arya's speech to the Frey woman, after the men had been poisoned, sounded a lot like Tyrion's speech to the "Magistrate's" of Mereen in S6's episode "Battle of the Bastards Part 1"? Last night Arya said: "When people ask you what happened here, tell them "The North Remembers". Tell them, Winter came for House Frey." Last year Tyrion said: "Tell your people what happened here......... Remind them what happened when Daenerys Stormborn and her dragons came to Mereen."

    The Will to Change: Rereading Sandor II

    I'm only back a few days and you're already putting me to work, huh? :P Brash, I also would like to say that your summary was very well done. It really should not surprise me by this point in time, but I am astounded at how insightful everyone's contributions are. I wish we had the "like" button back as well. That always came in handy! :thumbsup: Looking back at all the posts, I'm not sure if I can really add anything new this time around. And I'm definitely feeling a little rusty! :unsure: Milady's excellent post about swords and phallic symbolism made me think of the saying "bloodying your sword". Lyanna Stark talked about LOTR and made comparisons to ASOIAF. This was something I noticed this in Milady's posts about knights and chivalry: “So long as I have this,” he said, lifting the sword from her throat, “there’s no man on earth I need fear.” More than likely it probably means nothing, but I wonder if this could be LOTR type play on words? (i.e no man can kill the Witchking, etc). Or could this have some kind of other, deeper meaning? I also liked Ragnorak's posts referring to the ship names (Stag of the Sea, et al). The "Dog's Nose" could also be a play on the word "nose" as in "knows". A dog knows a lie. Looking forward to the next chapter! (Hopefully I'll be up to speed by then...)

    Well Milady.....Winter IS coming! :P Thank you for the warm welcome back. :) It's heartening to see that you, brash and the rest have carried on with the analysis (and on Sandor this time--great idea!). It's very nice to see some familiar names here as well as some new faces. I'm sure the research has been top notch as always! I'd be happy to comment on the newer threads once I've had a chance to read them. I'm afraid I have a lot of catching up to do and I keep having problems with the forum --it crashing or other such issues. (Yes, the show was partially why I was gone for so long--I didn't care for it at all and totally dropped watching it. I'm at the point where I'm ready to give it another go, I think).

    Unfortunately, I have to absolutely agree with you on this FB. :frown5:

    How would you rate episode 205?

    It's probably a Highgarden version of a ladies sideless surcoat. (I don't care for the interpretation :ack: ).

    You said it Maroucia! I totally get that they need to change things for the show, but their translation is losing something. They also axed the part in the beating scene when Joff tells Sandor to hit Sansa, then Ser Dontos intervenes. After Boros starts doing the job, Sandor tells them "Enough". They left all that out and only had Tyrion intervene. Come on! :angry: I guess we should be happy they didn't cut out the cloak part as well.... :mellow:
