  1. Omg, I can't wait for the flurry of blinditems once the dust settles down; younger actors exhausted and disillusioned, older actors openly disdainful, production staff worked into burnout...
  2. It's infuriating! They actually pitched Jaime's character to NCW as one who would go on to have an amazing storyline and now they kinda... forgot about it?
  3. I agree. I hated mise-en-scène choices. I would venture to say they got what they wanted - the audience swiftly and adamantly judged against her. It's a distasteful, chilling thing. And I suppose creators riffing on Leni's work isn't that surprising. What should be worrying is how we reacted to it.
  4. The same ending as the show? Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. - This is a dire reading. Different? Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. - A much less dire reading.
  5. Oh, that sounds so much better. I am relieved to know I haven't made this up in my efforts to make sense of... anything.
  6. Does anyone remember an interview/quote by GRRM saying he is sticking to his idea of the ending even if it means a boy wizard sits on the throne? Found one of him saying he probably would not name his child Daenerys, so there's that.
  7. I don't know if you were around when GRRM's letter to his editor from 1993 was made public: in the query, he gave a broad trajectory for then-trilogy; it's fascinating stuff but not as fascinating as the fact the summarisation of that letter was available for years on Amazon's page for TWoW and no one noticed. (White Walkers were called "Neverborn", for example.) I would not be surprised the ending was inspired by that piece (the paragraphs regarding the actual ending were redacted), which was more to the theme of ~ a time for the wolves than ~ a dream of spring.
  8. I recall GRRM linking Bran to Pinocchio - disregarding the conscience etc. Dunk died saving this mess, so it can be hot mess.
  9. So, Bran is like Daenys the Dreamer? I am so confused. Wasn't he supposed to be the last chapter in ADoS? Wasn't there a story between GRRM and one of the illustrators, regarding the first Bran AGoT chapter, and things that should prove to be of importance at the very end of the series? Is Jon AA because he helped the transition from Fire to Ice (Targs to Starks)? So, heroes (Starks) ascended. Bad people are dead. Okay... I guess.
  10. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. I wondered so many times why not a single one of the journalists tried to reply with this - the quotation is from the film only, not the original text from the novel; it would have been both tongue-in-cheek and a meta opener for the GoT/ASoIaF conundrum we are facing now : what is the journey (the path) if not to be mirrored by the end? I don't think Daenerys will be the mad queen but I do think she won't escape the legacy of her truly mentally damaged father and brother and while not crazy she will experience the bias of those around her : bias through superstition, fatalism, distrust, fear and perhaps most dangerous of all - being foreign to Westeros . As for the narrative, it may very well be that Dany's coin of "madness" and greatness will continue to spin in perpetuity, never landing on the ground, becoming part of the legend and mythology just like her dragons. Jon seems to be poised to leave Westeros to the Westerosi, curtail the supernatural threat(s), following his resurrection turning out to be a very sombre figure trying to do the best for the common good as hard as this sounds. Heartbroken. At this point I just want to send a shout-out to my Bloodraven who knows Targaryen glory is coming to an end.
  11. Ah. Well, there's always the world of Ice and Fire subforum. Thanks for your reply! :)
  12. Ran, If I don't want to be spoiled (not even a tidbit of the future plot), should I continue to watch the show? This is very important to me. I like the forum, but following the last week's episode, even the books part of the forum found a way to illustrate that something is happening ie every thread regarding the Others and The Night King was bumped.
  13. You, Sir, win the Internet :lol: Or rather, the forum.
