    Casting the Characters Who've Been Cut

    A favorite of mine, Strong Belwas - I pictured Jim The Anvil Niehart (now dead) but Eddie Hall would be perfect. Zydrunas Savickas with makeup also.
  2. Years ago I dismissed the show as being something else entirely from the books, same characters but a different, more shallow story. Compare the story lines in the books not even touched in the show and characters in the show not even existing in the books. I hope I am not influenced by the show any more than like I am influenced by discussing a book I have read with someone else. Cant help but it having a little effect but I look forward to GRRMs version.

    [Spoilers] Episode 806 Discussion

    Dont understand why people are upset about Bronn being there. The Lannisters always pay their debts and Tyrion was indebted to him by his word.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 806?

    Meh, bland and unsatisfying. I wasnt going to write anything about this ending but I guess it will stand as some kind of catharsis. Best scene of the episode was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. If Dany doesnt have it no one does. Her appearing with dragon wings was excellent also but a little vampiric. She also changed from the White Queens clothes into Darth Vaders outfit further showing her dark side. Scenes choosing Bran (come on, shouldnt he be underground somewhere?) as King and around the conference table were downright cartoonish. Bronn magically reappears when the fighting is over. At least tyrion didnt find Cercei alive, broken and in such pain he strangles her to put her out of her misery fulfilling the prophesy like I expected they were going to do. Jon gets screwed and not like he was. Better scene and more faithful to the series would have been her killing him first while kissing or even them killing each other if they wanted the same conclusion. Grayworm should have been offed. He snapped, developed a war face and blindly followed orders. I would not want to be a subject of his. Who repaired the Wall and why do they even need a Night Watch now? Ghost and jon for the shippers and suddenly Tormond has been struck mute. I feel GRRM would not approve of this drivel. Maybe they should have just skipped this year like Martin has done with the last books. Certainly was better up to the end of the last one.

    Drogon's demise

    My take. Dany and the dragon are linked by magic. When the dragon dies so does she.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 805?

    I left last weeks episode feeling hollow and a little sick to my stomach but this week I am just angry. Apparently all storytelling, rhyme and reason has gone out the window for rank spectacle. I am now afraid to purchase the last/next book for fear it ends the same way. I guess even if it does the trip there will be more worthwhile. So many things to rant about, Lord Varys, Jaime and Cerceis death, the ease with which the Navy and castle fortifications are taken out, destruction of a conquered city, Clegainbowl, never ending amounts of dragonfire (magic I suppose). BTW, didnt they reuse the footage of Darth Vader unmasked for Gregor? No problem with Danny finally showing her true colors. Driven mad? I dont think so, just a temper tantrum. My way or else revenge. Destroying the Red Keep I understand and a better death for Cercei and Gregor but the rest of the city? Never liked her in the book or Emelia Clarks interpretation of her but now they have blended. Prophesy be damned and GRRM let this go by? Maybe Cercei survived the building falling on her. "The Bells?" Should have been called "Death Knell". "Im the man who killed Jaimie Lannister!" Who is gonna know? Giving this one the lowest Ive ever given, 10 for the production and zero for the story averaging out to a 5. "If You Think This Has A Happy Ending, You Haven't Been Paying Attention." Didnt think this meant that it would be the audience that would be the ones unhappy. Didt think I would ever say it but I glad there is only one more episode.

    the starks

    The only one that wants power is Sansa but Jon is the only one the 7 Kingdoms would follow.

    Valonqars

    Jaime dies, Cersei weeps, Tyrion strangles. Fulfills the prophesy but Ill bet there is a twist somewhere just like any deal with the devil.

    Do We see Any Of The Missing People This Episode?

    Missing people: The "New Prince of Dorne" or Yara. One of these will appear to save the day or at least contribute greatly to it. The remaining main characters still have to be wrapped.
  11. Yara is a Queen and I think younger so she could be the one on the IT when the dust settles if the prophesy is to be believed.

  13. I havent really put the time into crafting an ending as you have but am really hoping to eventually get GRRMs version and that it is vastly different from the show. I almost has to be due to all the dropped storylines. I am really concerned about how they are going to end this. Im hoping for resolution but afraid of a cliffhanger or Sopranos type close. I just hope they dont have an ancient Sam telling the story to a new group of participants or Leaves blowing across an ancient graveyard with all characters long dead. Worse would be a dream Bran has after being pushed out of the tower and laying dying. (Sorry if you have heard any of these before) Random thoughts: Dany is now down to one dragon. When it dies, so does she. Bron kills Cersei with the family crossbow. Arya shows up to defeat Euron. Brienne follows Jaimie and saves him. How does Sandor kill his brother who is already dead? Both perish. Jon rules but makes Tyrion his hand and retires to the north and abdicates leaving Tyrion the Iron Throne. Sansa rules the North while Arya just fades into oblivion of her own choosing.
  14. A very generous 6, one of my lowest ratings ever. I really dont like the direction that this is going now. Tonight was just about what I expected only worse. This is the first show that afterwards I just felt disenfranchised and sick to my stomach about. I went to bed in a fog. Danny is soooo stupid. I always fly right into range of the guns that just killed my wingman. Lets lose both dragons instead of just one. Jon must be rubbing off on her tactics wise. BTW, arent Dragons magical beasts? Kill one with a magical ice spear OK but take one out with just a big ass arrow with no magical qualitys? I call BS. At least Sansa didnt let me down. She just makes me dislike her more and more. The show has me at the point of not caring what happens to most of the characters.
