  1. I liked the opening credits, seems like they put a lot of thought into them. I haven't read this entire thread so I may be just making same comments as everyone else. I am sure I wasn't the only one who felt Arya and Gendry flirting with each other. Hey you look good...you do too....then Arya turns as she is leaving to see if he is still watching her... classic flirtation scene. Had forgotten about Sam not knowing his dad and brother got roasted. Nice little plot tension maker there. Drive a wedge between Jon and Dany. Jaime and Bran and preview. Will this be another spot where Dany and Jon have some tension and drama? He will want Jaime spared, Brienne maybe speaks up for him. Jon of course wants to keep all the "living" alive for the battle. During this scene does someone also mention that Jon is Aegon? And one last question about that, since he pledged himself to Dany does that mean he gave up his rights to the throne? This is probably being discussed elsewhere. Theon Yara just seemed like a waste. Maybe Theon shows up next episode and tells Dany that Yara is back on Iron Islands and she can fall back there. I wanted more of Yara. The dragon riding, for me, was horrible. All I saw was that dog thing from the never ending story. Last thing...if Dany freaks out and wants to leave after hearing about Jon being Aegon and tries to leave, wills Jons dragon decide to stay with him? Isn't there supposed to be a bond once mounted?
  2. I gave it a 6. We all knew it was going to be a refresh and reset episode to get ready for the next few. As usual I have little interest in whats happening anywhere but the north.
  3. What would have helped this would be Tarly saying something to his son about taking care of Cersei later and avenging the Tyrells, but stopping this invader now. Since they are a foreign horde invading them, with warriors known for raping all the women and taking the men as slaves. We know Dany stopped that, but they don't know that.
  4. No, just see my other posts, I forgot where I was. Here we are free to rant about anything show related free from people like me trying to make sense of it. That's what I meant by show facts.
  5. Hey, forgot I was in rant and rave. So rant away. I used to avoid this section like the plague but got sucked in today! My rant would still be against Stannis, book and show. He is supposed to be logical, military minded no nonsense guy but he gets swayed by a priestess and changes his religion all of a sudden? Then is so fanatical in it that he burns his own people for not changing their beliefs? If he hadn't done all that he would've won from the start.
  6. Then do that, but don't come to a forum that is created to discuss a show and then say it isn't real. Of course it's not real. But if you are here to discuss the show then you have to use show logic and facts. The books are much different BTW....why would people support Stannis who used magic to kill his own brother and burned his own bannerman alive?
  7. Again. You must use what the show has done and base things on that when discussing motives and such. Cersei would've been dead long ago in reality.
  8. But when we are discussing this show we need to take what has actually happened in the show as fact, not what we want or what we would have done.
  9. Again, Varys left with Tyrion, he has no idea what has been moved where since he left. His little birds are Qyburns now. Please tell me you aren't going to really use Winterfell as support for this? Winterfell was left unprotected because Robb felt the north was entirely safe. The Greyjoys were not seen as invaders so they were able to just walk right in. If Winterfell was closed up for a siege that never would have happened. Cersei is paranoid and on guard, has the city watch and Lannister army there, very different situation.
  10. And yet the Tarlys still did just that. Even after all that, and wiping out house Tyrell, they still supported her.
  11. Tarly called her a foreigner. Remember she didn't grow up there, has never been there until now. And a bit off subject but hey that's why we are here... Targaryens conquered Westeros by killing tens of thousands of Westerosi people. Not a stretch to think plenty of houses haven't forgotten that and do not want it happening a second time. Especially backed by Dothraki, who they all have heard rape and pillage.
  12. Your plan relies on them knowing where all the wildfire is, and how would they? Cersei is way smarter than people give her credit for. Tyrion knew of the wildfire, and she knows that. So Cersei will have moved it from the places he knew about. Give her the credit she is due.
  13. The problem is that's not exciting enough! Also, as we saw with the Tarlys', some of the bannerman would rather die than support a foreigner invading with savages. It's nonsense but in their world some would still do it. Me, I would do what you mentioned. Tell all the people who wanted no part in this to simply leave. Then just wait her out, eventually they will turn on her or she turns into the Mad Queen (which very well could happen) and she burns it all down.
  14. Not really, you can't disable wildfire. It's super volatile even for people who know how to handle it. Plus no way to know about chain reactions with stashes of it people don't even know about. It could all have been used in the Blackwater battle and Baelors sept but there is no way to know for sure.
  15. Problem is still the same as it always was. Wildfire. If you start storming the city Cersei will let you get in and then light that match and go down in "glory" taking as many of her enemies with her as possible. The Red Keep is far enough from the gates that they will definitely have alarm bells going off before anyone reaches her.
  16. I don't think anyone will. I think Gendry will reforge it into two regular sized swords. If it stays as one, The Hound would make sense because of it's size and his training with swords.
  17. So many things here...unless I am mistaken, which is possible. Sandra as you call her, should be extremely skeptical. She has spent the entire series being beaten and betrayed, why wouldn't she be skeptical? If her character didn't change, that, would be an issue. You don't understand why Arya, a key player/warrior, needs a valeryian steel dagger, which we know kills wights and walkers? Ayra almost besting Brienne was a bit much I think my eyes rolled all the way back inmy head as it was happening, but she also spent the last year or more training to be an assassin...i would assume swords would have been some part of the training, not everything appears on screen. The Dothraki didn't appear at Highgarden, that battle took place near Kings Landing, right by Dragonstone, it is explicitly said that the head of the line is already in the city walls along with the gold.
  18. Those last 5 or 6 weeks were brutal for me, so I claim the title of 3/4 season Champ! Looking forward to next season.
  19. Unfortunately I went opposite figuring it would be the only way for me to make a jump, and I did make a jump, right off a cliff!
  20. Damn it! I was looking pretty good for a while then the training wheels fell off. Damn Aints!
  21. My blinding hatred for the eggles made me choose the Bears and lose 16... I hate it when Dallas and the Eggles are involved, it screws with my logic. 2-2 but lost my 16 and 12 point picks so another week of sucking ass!
  22. If all else fails at least I picked my Cowboys to win and they did. Finally a playoff win, everything else is gravy.
  23. And there goes one of my picks, down 21-0 at the half, bye bye 8 points! You'd think I was the Steelers the way I have crumbled the second half of the season.
  24. I have a feeling I will go 0-4 this week and fall off the charts.....gut feeling and yet I can't get myself to change my picks.
