    Why do the smallfolk support Cersei?

    Well, it's not entirely logical, but when the enemy's the daughter of Mad King Aerys with the kinslaying/kingslaying abomination as her Hand, the foreign eunuch as another advisor, allied with two Greyjoys and the women who killed their own lord and kin along with a southern child in cold blood, an army of foreign slavers and rapists and three dragons, then well, Cersei doesn't seem that bad in comparison.

    Cersei versus Daenerys

    Cersei. Not because she's a better person (though I don't see much difference between the two in the show), but because she's been written to be smart. Dany's rule in Meereen, however whitewashed in the show, was disastrous and showed a complete lack of skills in anything pertaining to ruling. She wasn't good at strategy, long-term thinking, administration, diplomacy etc. She even failed miserably at appeasing the very people who worshipped her. The show literally spelled out to the audience that she's a conqueror and not a ruler. In season eight alone, she allied herself with Yara and Theon, a usurper and a child murderer, and the Sand Snakes, usurpers and child murderers, betraying her own ideals and integrity. She burned down wagons full of food which everyone depended on, insulted one of her most powerful potential allies upon meeting him (having him be met by armed Dothraki), held him captive for weeks or months (though this was downplayed for the cutesy-factor), almost went ahead and burned down the capital of Westeros, showed no understanding of customs and cultures, burned two high lords alive while insisting she was there to save them from Mad Queen Daenerys, became partly responsible for giving the NK a dragon and the weapon to cross the Wall and inadvertently revealed that she was down one dragon because she wanted to measure dicks with Cersei. Hell, when Tyrion brought up her infertility and the subsequent chaos that would ensue should she die, her immediate reaction was to accuse him of being a traitor, revealing how truly little she has thought things through. The sheer scale of destruction that Dany can cause is unmatched by anyone else. Again, Cersei isn't a good person and doesn't care much about the average Westerosi, but show!Cersei is competent and understands Westeros in ways that Dany doesn't even pretend to. She's operating the exact same way she did in Meereen despite the disastrous results.
  3. Episode 3 Scene 1: Jon refuses to pledge to Dany, Jon wants dragonglass without offering something in return, Dany insults Robb by ignoring his claim, insults Ned after saying they aren't responsible for their parents' actions, ignores the reasoning behind Robert's Rebellion and holds Jon and Davos prisoner. Episode 3 Scene 2: Dany allows Jon to mine dragonglass to keep him distracted, and both eyefuck each other. Episode 4 Scene 1: Jon tells Dany about the threat beyond the Wall, Dany says she believes him but won't help unless he bends the knee. If not, then his people can die for all she cares. Jon talks about Dany's good heart after this and Davos points out he's noticed his infatuation. Episode 4 Scene 2: Dany for some reason asks for Jon's advice and she listens to him. Episode 5: Jon pets Drogon. Dany says she won't fight the NK unless Cersei does as well. Jorah wants to head North, Dany barely has a reaction. Jon wants to head North and Dany gets super worried and doesn't want him to go. Episode 6: Tyrion talks about Dany being in love with Jon, Dany abandons her conquest to save Jon's life. Dany is more broken up about Jon's possible death than her dragon's. Jon calls Daenerys Dany out of the blue and gives away his kingdom against the will of his family and people because "my people will come to realize how special you are like I have" after she's already agreed to fight the WWs. It's a joke and I'm convinced they're rushing this because it's gonna end in heartbreak next season once Jon finds out about R+L=J.

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    With the latest episode establishing that R+L=J being dragged out across two seasons, , I think a Jon vs. Dany or The North vs. Dany conflict is inevitable. Jon and Dany will definitely hook up, but I think people are living in fanfic land if they believe these two will have a happy ending.

    I have never bought into the "Dany is mad" theory, and I still don't, but Dany IS straight up delusional. She seems to genuinely believe that she's in Westeros to end the wheel of oppression or what the fuck ever, while initially keeping a king prisoner because his people chose him to lead them, refusing t aid the North against a mythical threat for not bending the knee to her and burning people alive for not pledging to her. She buys into her own propaganda and is incapable of seeing the difference between what she's saying and what she's doing. She is unstable as shown on the show, just not the way her father was. Ellaria and the Sand Snakes were traitors, Yara and Theon are traitors, Olenna became a traitor the day she poisoned Joffrey at his own wedding. For a woman who goes on about her birthright, she sure as shit doesn't care about the right of succession unless she benefits from it. Dany is a hypocrite through and through.

    Get ready for endless "that's not how annulments work/Rhaegar was removed from the line of succession/Dany is still the rightful ruler" discussions, despite the show literally spelling it out for us.

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    Sure. I think Varys' monologue in episode two is setting up a future betrayal on his part (not a spoiler, just speculation) and that news of Jon being Rhaegar's son is what will cause Varys to jump ship, so Jon could possibly end up with some of Aegon's story.

    The exclusion of (f)Aegon has affected too many plots negatively, but

    My bet, they're keeping Jon's parentage a secret until after Jon and Dany get close to create drama next season.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Have we ever seen any other aunt/nephew or uncle/niece couple on this show? The only incestuous pairings I can think of are Craster and his daughters (depicted as depraved for various reasons) and Jaime and Cersei (eliciting disgust in everyone except Myrcella and the Dornish, apparently), but who else? Tywin and Joanna were cousins in the books but there is no mention of it in the show and cousins getting together isn't even considered incest in most parts of the real world anyway. D&D can't even get behind polyamory (since Rhaegar divorces Elia in the show) or the bedding ceremony (Cat reminiscing), so what are the chances they're actually gonna portray an aunt and her nephew banging in a positive light? It's so obvious they're setting up future drama between Jon and Dany since neither will learn about R+L=J until season 8. No way they're dragging the reveal out for two seasons for no reason. Factor in that new spoilers say Varys flat out tells Dany his loyalty is to whoever cares about the people and not Dany specifically, Varys doubting Dany's sanity and being turned off by her actions and the spoilers that Jon's real name is Aegon and that Varys might end up supporting an Aegon in the show as well, and it's glaringly obvious what they're doing.

    Spoiler tag won't work, so: [Jon and Daenerys]: "He vocally pledges to her in the Dragonpit. This catches everyone off guard, including Dany, who wasn't expecting him to do that. (Also no one thinks it was wise, as this really winds up Cersei.) I swear, no one this dumb deserves to have made it this far.

    [Spoilers] EP607

    None of the Northerners are rallying around the Starks except a few hundred men because they prefer the rule of a psychopathic kinslayer who just killed his own father and brother, flayed the Cerwyns and threatened the Night's Watch. Before that they prefered the rule of a man who collaborated with the Lannisters and killed their kin and soldiers at a wedding. From a purely pragmatic standpoint, this seems like one of the worst decisions anyone's made on the show, especially taking into account that they could easily defeat the Boltons if they untied against them. The Starks and the Northerners have been ruined so others can shine. The Umbers refused to aid the NW when they called for help when the Wall was under attack, but handed their King to the Boltons because Rickon's bastard brother, who doesn't represent House Stark and who he hasn't spoken to since he was six, let the wildlings pass as a last measure. Jon and Sansa were both made incompetent when faced with a 10-year-old kid so Davos could save the day. The Glovers outright refused to join the Starks even though the lord's brother was killed at the Twins. The wildlings had to be convinced by Tormund to join Jon when he literally died for them and proved himself time and again. The Starks got fucked big time so the Valesmen can have a significant role in the battle. No doubt Rickon will die as well because the Starks suffering is practically iconic now. This is absolutely cheating to have the villains win, even if it's momentarily.

    Looks like The North Forgot. Not just their fealty to the Starks but that their family members and men were killed at the Twins. They're making the Northerners look like assholes so LF can save the day. "The reason bad things happen on GoT has changed. GoT has gone from being a show that wouldn't cheat to help the good guys to a show that will cheat to help the bad guys." Literally everyone is show wants revenge except the Northerners. Huh.

    Everyone knew she was going to get the Dothraki. Some of us just expected it'd be a bit harder than just walking around calmly and knocking over braziers while no one stops her.. And Jorah and Daario just strolling into Vaes Dothrak a la Jaime and Bronn last season...

    So Dany is the only Targaryen who's fireproof? And people call Jon a special snowflake
