  1. Well Targaryens can be killed by dragons, just ask Queen Rhaenyra. On the other hand, it is quite ironic, the killing of a Targaryen monarch yet again but by a Stark this time. Jon became a kinslayer and a queenslayer.
  2. I think the whole point of Edmure-poor guy was humiliated by his own niece- was to remind us that there are still other domains and beyond Jon, Dany and Tyrion we do have other players, no matter how unimportant they may seem. Who was the dornish representative though? I probably missed his name. As for Sansa I suppose that her proclamation in the episode will be at least a chapter in the books where the Northern Lords and commoners will demand their independence. I think that tv Sansa was given aspects from Lady Dustin and Lord Manderly.
  3. I don't know how different their fates will be but for me at least the issue is not really what happens but how it happens. Sansa's and Theon's stories more or less were convincing, despite certain controversial aspects. Cersei's was also more or less believable, even though at this point in the books it is hard to predict how the situation will develop. Jaime and Dany though, those two, a shame. Two really good actors, two fascinating storylines and they rushed/distorted their stories.
  4. It did seem a bit random. I mean her maternal grandfather was mentioned that he loved to travel, and there was a Stark ancestor who also seemed to enjoy exploring. But so far in the books and the tv series her arc seemed to focus on revenge and her pack. Perhaps in the books we will be given more context in regards to that decision.
  5. Arya was the only character i wad really never invested to but she never seemed to care about wanderlust. She always seemed to care about her pack.
  6. Never thought that I would say that but Cat was right. It should have been Jon.
  7. So BR won and the Blackfyre rebellion is finally over?
  8. A song of ice and fire or a story of how Bronn son of.... became Lord of Highgarden and lord protector of the brothels.
  9. The Iron Throne never looked so lonely.
  10. Indeed. Possibly his greatest moment in the show. No snark or irony. Just bitterness and defeat. Also the jon tyrion scene mirrors the jaime tyrion scene in s4. Funny how in s2 at the hotu everyone thought that Cersei would be the one to burn the city.
  11. Tyrion's has aged a lot in a few minutes.
  12. He also really loved Jaime. He is now the last of the Lannisters. Sort of. Jon believed in Dany more though. So did Varys. But the scene with Tyrion discovering the hand was.... Also didn't Tyrion said something during his trial of burning the city?
  13. Odd how in s1 we had an important scene in the crypts about victims of targaryens and now this is repeated with actualbtargaryen victims.
  14. The sets do look lovely and devastating.
  15. But the slavers were enemies who tortured innocents, the Tarlys questioned her claim and fought against her. The dothraki leaders expected her to remain with the rest of the widows, isolater. The innocent citizens of KL were her subjects. The Red Keep was the palace that her ancestors had built. There is a difference.
  16. Well, without having read books 6 and 7, it is hard to make a guess in regards to Dany's character development but judging from the development of Sansa and Jaime, the tv show took many liberties. Sansa marrying Ramsay? Jaime abandoning Cersei only in the end of s7, even though Cersei did all those terrible things? Omitting Tysha? Ramsay killing his father and everything is ok? The development of certain characters and plotlines in the show is not consistent with what happens in the books. Usually in the books we get a faster, less detailed explanation. This is not necessarily a bad thing, the show is an adaptation after all but they do move too fast. I was never a fan of the Dany the Mad Queen theory but now it is a possibility. I like to believe that GRRM will be more subtle when he describes her descent to madness, if indeed this is what happens. After all, how many children did Scarlett O'Hara have?
  17. What makes you think that GRRM will follow the exact same path? I recall an interview a couple of years ago when he said that books and tv series have same endings but the path they follow is different. I mean think of how different minor characters such as Euron and Missandei are in the show and yet how great and different their impact on both books and show.
  18. Eh, I get the bond that he and Arya formed, but yeah her shift was abrupt it is just that he and Sansa in the books had a very complicated bond.
  19. By everything she also destroyed her home, the place where Targs lived and ruled for centuries.
  20. I suppose they wanted to show how corrupted she has become by power?And grief? And Targaryen madness?
