  1. It's because the back story of the chain was not include It was for pacing and the somewhat weird plot. That of course, it something I am also critical of
  2. huh? I'm saying actors will demand a higher pay. Look at Friends, 80% of their reported budget was used for just the actors.
  3. Armor of the walkers is not made of ice. I'm not including the books here as the books described the armor differently. I'm just surprised that you find the use of chain so bad; I totally can agree on the pacing, passage of time, but the access of chain is not of any significance. Why is hard hard to believe that in the spam of 12,000 years, the white walkers did not find one ship with chains? Perhaps this is chain that they had from their first long night. I guess it would put you mind to rest if they showed next episode the walkers having a fortress of solitude in the land of always winter

    Did the Night King Spring a Dragon Trap?

    That's not entirely true though We know the events of White Walkers started first then Dany's dragons. With that said, the North is not always snow filled. We know this because there is an portion of the north that is considered the Land of Always winter. We also know at the time of the creation of the night king, the same area that is now snow-filled was all lush and green.
  5. Lmao dude! is it not possible that one chain arrived there many years ago? Why is the thought of the NK having chains impossible for you to believe but not that fact that he has an entire armor set for all his walkers?
  6. At that rate, Jon Snow would probably be 35+ by the time they finish. Each actor will ask for a huge pay raise and before you know it, the entire shows budget is going to actors
  7. Some people consider this dumb but I honestly thought it was great. Lets not forget even the major characters like Davos were shocked to see real magic the first time they encountered it. We saw other characters like the King's Counsel in season 1 laugh at the idea of giants let alone undead. Slint, the captain of the city's watch also laughed when he was at the wall. if they can actually provide proof to all the major houses to unite them, why is that a bad plan? It's smart! Especially if you look at with Jon point of view. He believes all living have to unite to win this war. Would I have done that? Nah, I'd probably lay the Red Keep to the ground before attempting to unite all the houses

    Robert was also considered a very good fighter by a few people that whole glamour theory is too far fetched. Nothing outside of the fact that ruby stones were on Reaghar armor support this theory
  9. Yeah, passage of time/pacing can be annoying and it's definitely not consistent. With that said, the amount of characters and the plot call for the pacing to either slow down or speed up. This season, if we went by the pacing of season 1 would not finish for 20+ episodes. In regards to the filler, what I meant to say is, GRRM added a lot of things like Quentyn in essos but it was really not required. It was obvious filler and did not add anything to the story outside of thr reader learning about the contract/pact. The introduction of Aegon may have worked to some extend in the book, but introducing Aegon in the 4-5 season as PTWP would not work. These things would be considered as filler in the tv show no matter how you spin it. Regarding the logic, I'm not going to argue that characters all act according to logic. However, I do think a lot of characters do act within the realm of possibility. The characters certainly use more logic than a high majority of other tv show character. Going back to the pacing though, it an issue and it will only get worse as the last book is probably the longest.

    So why are the dead such a threat?

    Not really, you're on point. One guy(beric) said, NK raised them all. I don't think they were throwing possible solutions. I think the showrunners wanted us to know know that i guess, it leds to the other point you made, can he really be killed. Jon basically said, it's not that simple, or you don't understand
  11. Why does the Targaryen Dynasty have to continue? Weren't the Targs responsible for starting that wheel ? It would be pretty cool to see Arya and Gendry on the throne like it was "meant to be"
  12. I am still not convinced that those two will end up together. I think the directors are just trying to tease viewers with the possibility That's just me tho

    So why are the dead such a threat?

    I'm pretty sure Jon meant, "you can't just go up to him and challenge him in a 1v1". It's not that simple. Also, I believe this episode made it clear that the dead would be "Deactivate" or "de-reanimated" if the Night King died.

    How will this play out in the books?

    Yeah, i have to agree with this. Although, i do believe he will finish Winds of Winter, I don't think he will finish the last books. Mostly because he is an old man who has very recently obtain a wealth and recognition He can not start to scratch things off the bucket list that were too expense. He has said it himself, he wants to enjoy his new status.
