  1. I have defended Dany many times on this forum and I was wrong. If anything it makes the books more interesting as we will have access to her POV and get to know how she thinks and feels as she becomes more of a villain. GRRM has done a great job presenting her as a sympathetic character.

    The purpose of R+L=J?

    I can't help but feel that extra episodes wouldn't have helped. Putting in more scenes would basically be giving the audience filler while spoon-feeding them the character development,

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    Drogon was merely warming Jon's seat for him. If Drogon went a little too far and ended up melting the damn thing, so be it.

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    On the true side I would imagine much has been revealed. Shireen will burn. Dany torches the city. Jon kills Dany. Bran becomes King. Drogon melts down the IT. Stannis doesn't win in the end. Littlefinger does not win in the end. Jaime and Cersei die in each other arms. Tyrion is Bran's Hand. The Others are defeated at Winterfell.

    The aftermatch of the decision made by D&D

    D and D have done an amazing job overall. A flawed masterpiece just like the novels. Many fans who have enjoyed their work now denounce them as incompetent writers. If so then why watch the series over 8 seasons? The truth is that the show declined in quality just as the novels did. Anyone familiar with the novels knows that after A Storm of Swords the quality takes a nose dive. D and D did a great job finishing the outline given to them by GRRM. At the end of the day they finished the story, something GRRM seemingly cannot do.

    Your predictions vs what actually happened

    I predicted Sansa as Queen in the North. But I also predicted Dany as Queen of the iron throne.
  7. The final episode was absolutely wonderful. A beautiful and tragic death for Dany. A great end for Jon. An unexpected King.

    This is all Jon’s fault

    Dany burned Kings Landing because she can - not because she is mad. It was a strategic move to subjugate Westeros. She cannot trust a single Westeros Lord and the North is already sowing the seeds of rebellion thanks to Sansa. Dany burning the city is her announcement to the lords , ladies and littlefolk of Westeros- that the grown up has arrived and the childrens game is over,

    Rant & Rave without Repercussion: Burn It All Edition

    Episode 5 was powerful, almost too powerful. It was the best episode of the series and an amazing, dreadful, unforgettable experience.

    UK Politics: Austerity has ended - More cuts to come.

    I think it was Merkel and Macron who proposed this EU army. Neither are credible politically speaking. Both have destroyed themselves politically through their distance and disconnection from the sheeple they rule over. As we see in France currently, the French sheeple have teeth and aren't afraid to use them. Perhaps this EU army could be used in future to pacify the sheeple of Europe?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    There was a leak which had Tyrion as the heir's guardian after Jon& Dany have died. The more recent leak you're referring to is a different one which has Tyrion executed and Jon & Dany survive. I'm not convinced we will see Tyrion executed , decapitated by Jon,for treason.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    From the leaks it looks like we have two possible endings- Jon and Dany survive and live happily ever after with their child or twins,ruling over the Crownlands, or they don't survive and Tyrion becomes guardian to their daughter who is heir to the throne. Please God I hope it isn't the former. I can live with the latter.

    How would you rate episode 504?

    Sandsnakes were really, really bad. So bad it's hard to compute their detriment on a score out of ten. Let's see. If the episode overall was a 7, but sandsnakes are a minus 3, I give the episode a 4.

    SPOILER WARNING: DUNE!!! For Ned Stark read Duke Leto Atreides -- from the first Dune novel -- his character arc is the same: Hero patriarch of honourable House -- takes family to an unfamiliar place to take on important responsibility -- is betrayed by rival not-so-honourable House Then his son undergoes journey of transformation like the Stark children seem to be doing Dune ends with a revolution leading to a new dictatorship Will the ending of ASoIaF end with the opposite -- a republic-- like the one the ancient romans were always pining for?
