    What the fuck did I just watch?

    I agree. The series will not be finished. I have only watched the first two seasons of AGoT, but stopped because I did not like them. When I heard the show was overtaking the books I thought Martin will not finish the series since the show ending was to mirror Martin’s ending.

    GeorgeIAF. Thank you. I shall do another read.

    What the fuck did I just watch?

    I just finished a re-read of the books. As far as I can recall, Dany has done very little burning. I do not mean to to rude, but could you give some some examples that Dany will go mad?

    What will happen when the dragon horn is sound?

    I have always suspected that Euron is the Dusky Woman - a glamour from one of his wizards or blood mages. Victarion has told the DW so many of his plans. Euron’s gifts are poisonous, the DW was a gift. I agree that nothing good will come of anyone blowing the horn. Maybe Victarion dies by dragon fire, Morrqoro, or Euron. It is ridiculous that Euron sent Victarion to claim his bride - why would Dany accept someone she has never seen?
  5. I am sure Quaithe will pop in and explain all....

    Least favorite theory?

    Since those of us who have been mulling theories over for 20-odd years or so knew Jon was a Targ, it was no shock that R+L=J. My least favorite theory is that Tyrion is a Targ. I would like him to inherit the Rock, and continue as his father writ small. And have all that is due him - the Queen's or King's Hand, for instance. However, a bit off point, do we need three Targs any longer? There are only two fired-up dragons. To have an extra Targ roaming around without a dragon may well cause problems. Or is the leader of the White Walkers a Targ? Is there any way to "save" the ice dragon and reunite him with the two? My other least favorite theory is that Dany and Arya are psychopaths -- these women are doing what they must to get by and have been from early on. Jamie, Sander, Jon, and so forth, have been killing and no one has decided they are psychopaths.

    Guy Gavriel Kay

    Just read through all these posts. I am a great fan of GGK after stumbling upon Tigana during one of the lulls between ASoI&F books. Lions is wonderful, wonderful. And reading Under Heaven often leads to tears. River of Stars is beautiful. I like his Viking inspired book (Light is in it, but the title escapes me), but it seemed to lack the lustre of his other books; a bit disjointed in places. Going to order those books missing from my collection. Thank you all for reminding me I was neglecting this writer

    Just finished rewatching Deadwood. Twice. Season One Episode 12 "Sold Under Sin" may be the best television episode ever. Season Three goes down hill quickly. As noted, so many characters are introduced, and nothing is done with them. Doc having Lung Problems, suddenly doesn't. I still am not clear on Hearst's reasons for killing Aunt Lou's son. The only thing tied up is Hearst leaving Deadwood. (I have some old stock certificates for gold and copper mines in Montana.) I agree with an earlier poster, Milch got tired of Deadwood, despite his pithy protestations in the extras disc.

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    Reread the Epilogue in ADWD. Pycelle is figuratively wringing his hands over Lord Tyrell murdering him.. "This matter of the moon tea... I would never have spoken of such, but the Queen Dowager commanded me!..." And then requests more guards, fearing violence at the hands of Mace. It is vague enough that we do not know if he brewed it and Cersei forced him to reveal it or whether she simply commanded Pycelle to say he did. Unless someone has something else, I would say, not enough to go on. But Varys knew the truth, what other reason would he have to kill Pycelle? Varys knows how to get into the Hand's chambers, so it is curious he lured him to Pycelle's chambers. Has the Little Queen denied It? I cannot remember. And isn't this the first time Cersei is called the Queen Dowager? Help -- I don't know how to combine these

    Small questions for ADwD, v.V

    I vote yes. He turns to Bran and says "your monster" about himself. I think he is controlled by the COTF and/or Brenden the Greenseer.

    Read these comments the other day, and drug out the boxed seasons. Great characters, great writing. Thank you for reminding me.

    I love Gaelic, too. I don't know more than a few words, and I am sure I would mispronounce anything but Pradraig. Maybe I will lean a little when the Outlander series comes out. My son is enrolled in Japanese, so I hope to learn that, as well.

    In this incarnation, I am Bethag, which is Gaelic for Beth. I was Elizabeth for years, but left the boards due a person whose rants brought out the worst in me. So, I am back, waiting for the next book, and avoiding the HBO series.

    [ADwD Spoilers] Updating the Citadel

    The snowmelt from the Wall tastes like tears -- to either Jon or Sam. Could mod put these two posts together?
