    Jaime Lannister - A True Knight

    I see Jaime as a deeply flawed character with some serious mental issues. I don’t feel he wound up with any improvement or redemption.
  2. on the contrary, the HBO series made me appreciate the books more. The writing and story arc of the TV series was just awful. I pray that George Martin will get off his butt and finish the job.

    Jon killing Dany doesn’t work for me

    I found myself ambivalent about Jon knifing the mad queen. Maybe someday (but not holding my breath), George Martin will finish the saga, and we will know the straight skinny.
  4. I gave it a 7, based on the fact that there was just not much material to work with. I suppose we will never know how George Martin thought it should end. I was ok wtih Bran being the 'last man standing', or sitting in his case, First chapter, in the first book, was named "Bran"

    What Happened to the writing?

    from the beginning, the HBO series was lacking in substance. The screen writers just are not George RR Martin quality writers. Without the kernel of 'end game' residing in Martin's head, there was just no guidance. On the other hand, visually and artistically, it's the only game in town, and worthy of watching on it's own merit.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 608?

    today, in the real world? Maybe. In Westeros, given the way life was there, and then, I stand by my statement. It was ludicrous. It's kind of like the bad guy saying put down your weapon, or I'll shoot my hostage. Knowing all the time that as soon as you toss your gun, the fellow will kill you both.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 608?

    stunned by the River Run silliness. That Edmure would sell out his family, his friends, his heritage, over the welfare of a child he does not know, has not seen, and won't ever see. In the time frame we are looking at, with the conflicts, the wars, the world view, the 'way things are', it's ludicrous that Edmure would turn the fortress over to the Lannisters like that. It was very disappointing, to see reality (or what usually passes for reality in Westeros), suspended, simply because the script writers could not do better than that. Just briefly, the silliness with Arya, badly wounded, then bounding around like some parkour athlete, was insulting to our intelligence. I did like the timely appearance of Dany, but thought those in the room were slow to show their obeisance.
  8. all things considered, it wasn't that bad

    [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    I am still unsure of where Victarion's ultimate loyalty is placed. Looks like, win or lose, he may go with several different choices.
