  1. Throwing in my two cents : Same what, different how : - Dany going dark/mad. The way the show did it was ridiculous, but it's definitely happening in the books - Sansa as QITN - Euron/Cersei alliance - Jaime/Brienne banging - R+L=J - Theon dying -Jorah's sacrifice On the fence : - Bran as king. There's definitely a lot more set up for it in the books, but Bran is also a lot younger so idk how that would work out. - Jaime and Cersei dying together . It's a possibility but 1) Jaime won't be there to protect her/run away with her (he might be the one that kills her) 2) I feel, wrt his weirwood dream, he is more likely to die fighting during the Long Night. - Brienne as KG : again, I won't discard it but the books put a lot more emphasis on her being the heir to Tarth imo. - Arya leaving to explore the world : not OOC but not widely satisfying either. It'd depend on how it's written, just like with everything. - Jon going in exile : see above.
  2. Exactly ! And what's even more infuriating is the horde of "book fans" whose interpretation is completely influenced by the show and tell you that Jaime is "addicted" to Cersei in the books as well and that it's a love story. GRRM's response to that bullshit was literally "you know that's incest, right ?". I don't know if it's an incest kink, a stanning of Lena Headey, or a weird combination of both, but it sure as hell ended up ruining not one, not two, but three great character arcs.
  3. My guess is that George told D&D they would and so they went on and checked that box but decided to piss on it immediately after.
  4. What's especially heartbreaking is that now everything that she has is tainted. Oathkeeper, her armour, her knighthood, all of this was given to her by Jaime because he supposedly loved her and admired her, and now everytime she's going to look at them will be a reminder of what he did to her...the guy who took her virginity, kept on having sex with her for a few weeks, and fucked off into the night. What the actual hell...
  5. All the actors, no exception, were done so dirty. NCW, who was so excited to play Jaime's identity/redemption arc, got 4 seasons as Cersei's little bitch, save for some fleeting moments of IC stuff ("I am not that man anymore"...welp turns out you are !). No wonder he stated recently that his favourite scenes were the bath scene and the bearpit scene (cuuuurious). Isaac HW was supposed to play this major character, a key player who struggled with his destiny and powers, had to play a lifeless meme making robot. Gwendoline Christie loves that Brienne's story isn't just about being mocked, but also about overcoming the obstacles and being loved for who they are; nah girl your character ends up humilated in the worst possible ways, and everything she's ever accomplished only added up to her misery. Kit ? The world's most expensive extra. He was paid millions to literally look dumbfounded and say on line per episode.
  6. So let's recap this real quick : - Fuck Jaime (what's a character arc ?) - Fuck Dany (but George told us she went cray cray, who cares about the how, *ding dong*) - Fuck Cersei (woobie Tiger Mom ftw) - Fuck Jon (the most expensive extra ever) - Fuck Tyrion (village idiot) - Fuck Varys (idek) - Fuck Brienne (your reputation is tarnished and no one will ever love you !!) - Fuck Arya (as useless as nipples on a breastplate) Whom else did D&D shit over ? The list is getting too damn long.
  7. Seriously people need to stop with this. She's a very good actress , and starred in a a good deal of quality movies/shows.
  8. They won't, I think. We've had bits from Tyrion's speech at the trial in various trailers.
  9. This, and also because it's the first episode actually featuring Book Cersei we've had since "Blackwater"
  10. well, to be fair, it's only implied in the books because neither Loras nor Renly are POV characters, therefore the only way for it to be confirmed would've been to have a POV stumble across one of their sexytimes, which would be just plain weird. I don't think it was Martin being shy really, you'd have to be blind not to see they were lovers.
  11. Gwendoline Christie will be in the next Hunger Games movie, it seems (along with Dormer then ?)
  12. Just spotted Stephen Dillane in "The Hours" : he's playing Virginia Woolf's husband.
  13. For French and German fellows, Arte broadcasts "When we leave" ("Die Fremde") on March, 13, starring Sibel Kekili, for which she received many awards.
