    How did The Reach lose?

    Wrong. The show established House Tyrell as one of the strongest houses. The show's Tyrell soldiers were essential in saving KL, in propping up Renly's army and now they are a bunch of irrelevant weaklings? The Tyrells could easily muster up to 50,000. And why would anyone sway to the side of Cersei? No bannerman in the Reach would betray House Tyrell for House Lannister and one illegitimate and murderous Queen. And the Lannisters' wasted and empoverished army would never survive entering the Reach, much less conquering Highgarden without any real fight.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    I gave it a nine because of some unecessary scenes such as Sam and Gilly. No one can deny the battle at the end wasn't awesome and so full of revelations, not even us book readers and show-critics.

    Here But please don't raise your post count by spamming. There's plenty of themes that you may find interesting across the forums. I'm sure 1 or 3 more posts can't be that hard, eh? ;)

    This is how you'll upload an image ;)
  8. It seems to me that most of Old Nan's stories are biased by the mentality of medieval common folk. At least a couple of her stories seem wrong enough.

    Hmm strange I pressed on it, and it directs to the List of actors wiki page in which the actor doesn't even have an entry. Are you sure about this? EDIT: Ah spotted and corrected it.

    Don't know if it's just a typo from your part but the events of the books are around the 3rd century AL so 199 AL. Yes, that part is incorrect, I've looked for other articles mentioning the same sort of content and it seems that the correct date should be 287 AL. From Bryen Caron's article it says that Brienne was promised to his youngest and second son but two years later in 289 AL, this son and most of Bryen's family, including himself, died of a chill. Seems a more reliable source of info so I've corrected it House Caron's article. Hope that clears it for you. Thanks for reporting that mistake! ;)

    How would you rate episode 310?

    8, Arya totally saved it for me though I understand that it's just a tie in/aftermath of things setting up for next season. Can't wait for the Martells! I'm sad because of Coldhands. Didn't understood the necessity of the Greyjoys scene, shouldn't it have been a funeral? Why cast two important actors this season just for that futile scene? Ygritte was pretty nasty :s

    How would you rate episode 308?

    I gave it an 8. They did very well with this episode covering a lot less plots while in the previous episodes it was quite the mix up of a dozen different plots and they also had to force scenes. This episode however, they kept it to only 4-5 plotlines and had enough time to allow scenes to properly develop without being rushed or anything. I do have to say though, I'd have enjoyed more action in the fight against Puddles Shards. I waited for it the entire episode and yet when it happens it's just...Sam attacks Shards, he evades and pushes him away, then Sam comes back and kills Shards. End of story. That scene needed to be more genuine. I'd have liked to see more horror in their faces.
  13. 7 just for the sake of it. Again too much plot development which I wouldn't even find that necessary like Orell's little crush. The Bear pit scene could've been so much better, seemed kind of forced.

    About the first that article is certainly terrible, it seems to me that whoever has been making those additions, added the entire chapter where the raven appears. I'll try to help fixing it too. Regarding the second, the thing that strikes a bit confusing about the source, is that though its book wasn't published yet, those chapters have been, so they're certainly considered "published material". But anyway, if Ran says it should go then it must so. ;)
  15. This episode sure did have its loads of deviations but I think they made perfectly sense and loved how they finally started using past references. Plenty of concepts introduced this episode. Related to Theon and Boy, so that castle we see from the outside, it's just another angle of the Dreadfort as it is portrayed in the show, right? Loved the revelations and foreshadowing development. This episode was just too great. I think the only thing I'd like improved would be Ramsay revealing his true name and acts, an even bigger shock on Theon's face would just be too amusing!
  16. This was the first time I rate an episode this season over 7. A well deserved 10, very intensive, enjoyed every second.

    A draft for modificiations of an already-existing page might become quite messy...but okay.

    I've begin drafting a Layout Guide though two things came up in which I would like your opinion or the community's. I'd like to propose the following changes to the current layout: Replace the name of "History" sections for "Biography" in all character articles as it would be far more suitable; Reduce capitalization in titles. While starting the title or the entire name of the books (basically because that is their name hence it shouldn't be modified) capitalized is fine, titles like for instance "Recent Events" and/or "References and Notes" I think should be decapitalized after the first name therefore it would be "Recent events" and "References and notes".
  19. I feel this episode served to introduce characters and develop the plot to the eventual most important outcomes. I gave it a 7 because of the lack of action.

    How would you rate episode 301?

    7/10, slow episode but not exactly a bad one either.

    Hey, I'm Winterz and as pretty much everyone here, I .... love these Series. For me, George is certainly the modern Tolkien (ye I also love Tolkien's work). I'm from Portugal and an University's student in his 19s. P.S. And I hate these painful "hiatus".
