  1. Unfortunately, you're in the wrong series if you want to read about fictional jurisprudence. GRRM may say his criticism of Tolkien is that he didn't go over Aragorn's tax policy, but then he himself goes and spends several pages in Fire & Blood on the semantics whether if a debauched woman had sex with Jaehaerys whilst skimming over the details of his code of law.

    Your heart's desire last words of GOT?

    My heart's desire's would be for them to say "And now for the real full length Season 8"

    Anyone Going To Watch The Prequel Series

    I mean it's utterly inane they chose to adapt a Long Night story when they've turned the Others into utter jokes in GoT. I didn't have much interest in a Long Night adaptation to begin with, because it's so divorced from the familiarities of Planetos' worldbuilding it might as well have been set in a different world. Now that we know what a meme the WW is in the future, my interest in this first prequel is virtually non-existent.

    GRRM vs #metoo

    This thread post just feels like an attempt to gaslight the countless valid criticisms for the show into 'whining from SJWs.' I've been on here and Reddit ever since the episode aired and no one apart from fringe Twitter or Tumblr provocateurs has ever brought up the 'issues' OP listed.

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    The problem with the Rhaenys' child theory is that it's literally fanfiction. If she somehow had a child, this child's only purpose would've been to serve as cuckoldry fetish for GRRM since it's never mentioned again. The entire scenario of the letter and the Dornish success against Aegon isn't grounded in plausibility or logic so while it's unfortunately not impossible to rule out that Meria was stupid enough to keep Rhaenys for 3 years, it would make her a complete moron, which goes against her Mary Sue nature in WOIAF and Fire & Blood. The entire country was glassed for 3 years because Rhaenys died, if Meria had her alive, she would've immediately sued for peace. On another note, we do get the full dialogue of Rhaenys meeting in Sunspear and its tone was completely cordial so the idea that Meria had a *personal* grudge against her is implausible.

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    Aegon didn't visit Dorne until 10 years after the war. His visit to Dorne alone to celebrate the 10th anniversary of peace alone invalidates the logic of the more edgy letter theories. Which is why any scenario where Rhaenys survives beggars a suspension of disbelief.

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    They would've had Rhaenys' blood for three years since she died at Hellholt 3 years before the letter. That's 3 years where Dorne got extra-glassed by the IT.

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    Lol you do realize he sent his daughter and heir to deliver the letter right? The problem with that being that if it was blood magic, Dorne would've done that, y'know, before their entire country got glassed. If Planetos had mind control magic, this wouldn't be the only time ever it would be mentioned.

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    Dorne is a Mary Sue in WOIAF lore so it's likely there won't be an answer to what was in that letter because the entire scenario was ridiculous from the start.
  10. This season is absolutely mediocre. Dreadfully mediocre. When did it all go completely down the shitter? At least Season 4 had some semblance of enjoyment and adaptational faithfulness.
  11. Hey, did anyone else catch that Varys said that they were going to go to Volantis first? I'm getting pretty desperate at this point, but do you think it might mean that...?

    +1. The traffic overloads, especially on episode premieres, seem have become a tradition by this point.

    How would you rate episode 501?

    I don't like how they cut Tywin smiling. It would have made a good closure on his character.

    How could this precocious little girl turn into... that? Well: this scene.
