    [Book Spoilers] EP510 Discussion

    So Myrcella just died? I'm not watching, so I'm guessing from this thread. ANYONE who told me they probably recast her because they didn't want to give a big role to a nobody can seriously blow me. It was because of her looks and you know it.

    I have seen it in the flames (pun absolutely intended)

    [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    Tommen was raped from modern standards. The whole reason statutory rape is a thing is because we decided that at certain ages, despite having sexual urges, a person's decision making skills and life experience is not such that they can consent. Whether I think this is a sensible stance to apply to westeros is irrelevant for what I'm explaining you, which is, why some say tommen was raped. He is being manipulated. He is immature and with a much older woman. This is the reason for the argument. No hysterics

    It's not an argument if they planned it for years. It's a fact. http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/26/game-thrones-sansa-ramsay-interview

    [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    Now that I've learned how to ignore posters, anyone who replies to a post that has specific reasons why something is bad with "you just don't like it because it's different" or "why don't you do better?" or anything similar to that immediately gets blocked. There's no having a legitimate discussion with someone who will always dismiss what you say with personal attacks or questioning your motives, rather than a reasoned counterargument. I've learned this the hard way. I got really tired of seeing someone write out coherent thoughts only to get a childish response that ignores or misses their point entirely.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    Introducing Arianne as Oberyn's companion would have allowed them to explore some of the Tyrell/Martell animosity through her interactions with Margaery. Also, Sansa's sudden evolution into whatever it is they're doing with her could have been less weird if they showed her bonding with Sansa and maybe having some of Oberyn rub off on her. There could have been some very interesting scenes between Arianne, Cersei, and Margaery imo. Personally, I thought they should have had a scene last season showing Oberyn leaving Dorne and introduced Doran and Arianne that way, but that possibly stretched the budget too much. It really isn't as difficult to introduce characters and make them interesting/get us caring about them as some people make it seem. It was harder in the books because we wanted to see characters we already cared about. In real life, you have an actual person to look at and that alone helps the audience build a connection to them since most people have some amount of empathy for other living things. Plus they have the choice of not ditching most of the characters we do care about already. With good acting and halfway competent writing, it's a simple thing to get people to care. I say this as someone who started with the show and had no idea who anyone was in the first episode. Still cared about them.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    That would be because they think themes are for 8th grade book reports. I do not understand people who think they are talented writers, but whatever.
