    Season 8 Predictions?

    Gimli and Legolas Arya and Gendry sail for west of Westeros.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I'm really curious about this one, because Melisandre walked out of the series (she promises to return) and Varys hasn't really done.....well, anything.

    There was enough tension between all the Southern characters (Greyjoys, Martells, Tyrells, Tarlys) & the Main Cast to fill a few episodes. But nah they trashed 'em to keep Cersei around. p.s. i say Tyrells cuz i think Mace&Loras could have been spared for S7 filler. S6's finale still had Kevan, Pycelle, High Sparrow, Tommen, and Marg dying. Hell, King and Queen dying aas enough.

    Who knows, it all depends on what the writers feel like. It took Bran the entirety of Season 3 to go from WF to The Wall. Given he is a cripple, but the dead like to walk very slowly when they have no energies to expend at all and should be able to just run indefinitely toward their destination.

    One thing I actually liked about the episode was the Arya/Sansa part, it's caused such a fuss whether or not the Stark sisters were plotting this offscreen. Or they were arguing for real, Sansa got fed up and went to Bran, and told her the truth about everything.

    Dany should've burnt Cersei and taken KL in episode 2 and gone with filler from there.
  7. Anyone who's been paying attention to the show since S1 has noted the chemistry between the two actors in real life, even in photoshoots (esp for S2). You would know these two were always planned as a couple.

    Cuz there used to be other characters in KL for her to be witty against and scheme. Now she's there alone with a wizard, a zombie, and a lovesick puppy.

    Show me where in Season 6 it hinted at Arya was going to The Twins to kill Walder Frey, in 6x08 she just said she's going home. Her 6x10 scene felt shoehorned in and out of place.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Arya is straight up revenge porn. The way she just plopped in as cook for Walder Frey and subsequently used his face to murder all the Frey men. No smooth transition, just an all-powerful entity of revenge with teleportation powers. I had hoped Winterfell would bring her back to some semblance of a character, possibly one with trauma and regrets over the dark things she's done growing up to survive (hahahaha), but according to the leaks -- that hardly seems the case. Plus, what role and character development could the Stark sisters even have in Season 8???

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    I agree. The show is more popular than ever, just when its coming to an end. And it's only doing that because a) budget and b. D&D are tired and don't wanna hand it over. I never expected everyone to make it in the show, every Tyrell, Greyjoy, Dornish, Meereeneese, Northern Lord, Vale Lord, Aegon's troupe, misc Essos characters, Oldtown, Riverlands, etc. But there was so much potential with the characters they DID add in the show. Just look at the Stark children reunion last week - underwhelming because of underwhelming dialogue. I'd have sacrificed every million dollar battle scene for more tightly woven dialogue and story. After all, it wasn't the spectacle of GoT that made the show more popular - it was the political knife-cutting twists and heelturns that defined even the show. Stuff like Arianne's crown plot and The North Remembers (For real) should have made it in the show.

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    No way. That was never going to happen. Just wouldn't be compelling TV. Will Dany choose the Dornish Prince or the handsome King in the North Jon Snow? Tune in next time.... Going with Cersei was their best and only option IMO. I don't think the southern conflict could have translated to the show, too many players and they weren't going to dramatically change the cast for the last few seasons. It was time to shrink the story. Which is why I propose Stannis as Cersei makes no sense.. at least he was in the show early on.

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    Not sure what the purpose of Stannis is in the books (if he dies in TWOW losing at Winterfell, what was the point of keeping him around? I always thought he could be ADOS material). Anyway --- the show did a terrible job with Stannis and D&D were certainly no fans of the character they literally turned him into a villain and used him as filler in seasons 3,4, and 5. They shouldn't have done that. The show created problems by cutting important characters but also by under-utilizing characters they did cast in the show. I think Stannis could have made an interesting stand-in for Aegon and opposition to Daenerys. The rightful ruler, the Usurper's brother, finally claims the Throne. Stannis and Dany are polar opposites and it would have been a lot more interesting for KitN Jon Snow to pick a side.

    Sansa should become the Lady of the Vale, but they've made The Vale even less a thing on the show than Dorne or Iron Islands. I was really disappointed some extra was the first face of the KoTV in 6x09 instead of Sweetrobin. You hear he's training, then you don't see him. It would've been hilariously perfect. The whole audience would have got a real kick out of that.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Before S6, I felt like Sansa's story was peaking meaning she was headed toward being killed off. Instead we got a dead Rickon which - to be fair wasn't a character in the show so they felt they could get away with killing him but, ...it still didn't seem necessary. Maybe in S7 I will eat crow, I'm very interested in Sansa and Arya interacting. No idea what, if any, storyline Sansa would have in S8. After LF, her time in the story is over. Bran is Lord of Winterfell. Jon will sit the Iron Throne. Maybe.....she....does....get....back...with....Tyrion. Their wedding was the whole climax of KL in season 3. Ugh, who knows.

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Since last summer. Did you have anything to add or just going around trolling Mr six posts?

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Haven't seen the show or been to the forum since last summer...just saw a random episode night for kicks and Brienne was in it. I don't even care about LSH anymore so much as how different it's made Jaime and Brienne. Specifically, thinking about how Brienne kills Stannis while spouting off "Renly the rightful king" BS.... what a moron. It'd have been FAR better if she had to choose between revenge and keeping her oath to Cat's daughters but nah she gets to do both. Because Game of Thrones works like that.

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    The jetpack was the least important part of what I said. Arya has become a caricature.
  19. Zombies That Were Promised

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    I have been over Arya and her story since S4, possibly even S3. I was in suspense when she fled KL and the Lannister army was on her tail, but now she's borrowed LF's jetpack to perform super ninja assassinations on an entire great House. Is she even a character anymore? Does she feel anything?

    [Spoilers] EP609

    Yeah, the Big Damn Heroes moment could have used the hilariousness of Robin's dull-brained face leading the charge. "We're getting saved by this shrimp?! haha" Or something like that.
  21. Zombies That Were Promised

    [Spoilers] EP609

    Was it too much to ask that the first face of The Vale charging in wasn't an extra? Like LF, Lord Royce, or even Sweetrobin? (He's been training how to fight since 4x08... and he IS the Lord of the Vale.) That's all I have to complain about this episode.
  22. Zombies That Were Promised

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    i have no idea what the purpose of the Hound returning is, if not Cleganebowl. anyway Beric is totally back just so he can give Cat's skeleton the kiss of life. #believe
  23. Zombies That Were Promised

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    I know the Hound literally pissed on the stream of LSH theories, but I still expected her skeleton to wash ashore and I won't give up until after episode 10, when I see Jaime and Brienne elsewhere. Beric and Thoros were literally reintroduced just this episode.

    [Spoilers] EP608

    I completely agree. I feel the passion has left the show too, they just want to finish.
  25. Zombies That Were Promised

    [Spoilers] EP608

    This season has tapered off for me after "The Door." I liked 6 well enough, but everything in 8 seemed anticlimactic. Tonight was a row of C-level written scenes and dialogue. I know 9 will cover both battles of Ice and Fire, but 10 has too much to cover even in 69 minutes. Besides the usual locations, we have to revisit Sam, Euron, Hound, BWB, Brienne, Jaime, Arya, and Bran. And Dorne.
