  1. I really liked the episode, but I can get on board with the criticism of not allowing enough time for the desperation to sink in with the Stannis camp. I believe the episode ran around 51-53 min. Why not give an extra two minutes to the Stannis story?
  2. Is it wrong of me to still want Stannis to defeat the Boltons?
  3. It was actually established in season 3 that Stannis was too weak to make anymore babies. Mel said his "fires burned too low". That was why she had to get Gendry.
  4. I've been thinking about if what D&D say is coming in TWOW gives us any clues to some of the ambiguous endings of Dance. Is it possible that the Pink Letter was written by Stannis and is code for Melisandre to burn Shireen? The letter is read. Jon is shanked. Shireen is sacrificed. Jon is brought back to life.
  5. Why I'm giving this episode a 9: Just finished watching a second time. First the controversial scene: I was semi-spoiled by the leaks yesterday afternoon and even as a huge show supporter I was confused as to why they were going this route. However, after I watched the inside the episode piece I took D&D at their word. Until I read something different in WOW in 2020 or Martin outright denies Stannis burns Shireen I'll believe D&D. Assuming this is what happens in the books this scene was actually beautifully acted. The post above that stated Stannis is the opposite of Jamie I believe is spot on. Stannis' story is playing out like a Greek tragedy. For those claiming "Stannis wouldn't do this so quickly--look what he did at Storms End!!" Well the times are a changing. We got a sea of white walkers about to head south and time is of the essence. The White Walkers are a much more realized threat at this point in the show story and Stannis has been warned about this threat by Davos, Melisandre, Jon and Sam. The main reason I rated this episode a 9 is because of the pit scene. I've been waiting years to see this and they pulled it off. I loved the reconciliation between Dany and Jorah. The Harpies were intense and Drogon was incredible. The episode ends leaving us with at least one ray of hope and that's just fine for now.
  6. I don't care about the books being spoiled. If Martin gave them permission cool. I just wasn't ever expecting D&D to confirm what was and wasn't coming from future books. I guess they felt they had to for this one.
  7. I'll admit I'm a little worried about D&D's and GRRM's collaborative relationship in the future. I could see Martin getting pissed that D&D blatantly confirmed what is coming in an unreleased book unless for some reason he gave them permission. But why would he share anything else with them? I ask this as a concerned show fan.
  8. Lol. Wow I was shocked earlier when I heard this was happening and I'm a show supporter, but if this is true--LMAO at all you purists. Maybe D&D should have been bold and changed the scene.
  9. Maybe they didn't want to associate the Shireen burning with Jon's resurrection if that's how it happens in the books. That was pretty hard to watch though.
  10. Just watched my top 5: 1) Baelor 2) Hardhome 3) The Children 4) The Rains of Castamere 5) Blackwater Honestly, they're all so close in quality I wouldn't be surprised if I changed my rankings a week from now. 6-10 going from memory I think would be: 6) Winter is Coming 7) And Now His Watch Has Ended 8) The Lion And The Rose 9) Kissed By Fire 10) Fire & Blood
  11. I know I ranked my top five all time in no particular order yesterday I believe. I decided I'm going to binge watch all five in the next two days before Episode 9 airs, and then try to truly rank them. My pre-binge-watch rankings are: 1) Blackwater: The reason this episode is still #1 is because it might be the most important EP of the entire series. S2 had some very weak moments. but this episode made the 8 hour appetizer completely worth it. Everyone loved it, because it was one of the most compelling hours of TV ever, and it grew the fan base for next season. Without Blackwater there wouldn't be a huge budget for Hardhome. 2) Hardhome: Yes, it's that good. Many of our major characters had compelling scenes in the first 2/3rds of the episode and then Hardhome comes out of nowhere like a ton of bricks. The horror and suspense leading up to the battle. Jon kills a whitewalker with Longclaw. The look between Jon and the Night's King. The whole sequence felt like a movie. This is TV at its most ambitious. 3) Baelor: This was the only season I watched as an unsullied. I believe I read all the books for the first time before the second season even started. As an unsullied at the time I was shocked by Ned's death like everyone else. The real reason I love this episode is because I thought the acting performances and story-telling in each scene had some of the best work GOT has ever done. Dinklage won his Emmy. But what I remember the most about this episode was Ned's death and the shot cuts to Arya closing her eyes before we see the birds fly off. 4) The Rains of Castamere: We got a famous Jon/Ygritee scene this episode, as well as, great performances from Michelle Fairley, Richard Madden and Masie Williams. We all know this EP was really about the Red Wedding. This scene is still the hardest of the entire series to watch. I knew it was coming, but it still hurt to lose Rob and Catelyn in such a terrible way and Arya had to unfortunately be there to experience it. 5) The Children: Yes, this episode is incredible. IMO I feel it has one weak scene that hurts it. Too me this EP is the Baelor episode for the Lannisters. The leader of the family died and his children's and grandchildren's lives were altered forever. Another episode where the acting was incredible. This list wasn't easy to make, but come on, IMO Game of Thrones is incredible and to be 5/48 episodes ins't bad!
