    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    I disagree with the bolded portion. If I had written the show... As for the other part, D&D actually chalked Littlefinger leaving Sansa to be brutalized by the Boltons to "Littlefinger just doesn't know who these guys are and how bad they are." So much for savvy I guess.

    Did Qyburn change Gregor Clegane’s dominant hand?

    When I saw the name of the thread I actually thought you were going to make the case that he changed his hand dominance somehow for the Mountain vs Oberyn fight. He's very clearly right handed in season one and then left handed in season four so it makes sense at least as a head canon now that he's right handed again.

    Season 5 vs Books 4 and 5

    Sure, thanks for the elaboration. It's all opinionated of course. I agree Euron got better in season seven.

    Season 5 vs Books 4 and 5

    Really? What put it above the other seasons in your opinion?

    Season 5 vs Books 4 and 5

    For the life of me I can't figure out why anyone would like season six better than season five. Sure season five had some cringe moments, and Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken is still probably the worst episode of the entire series but it had way more good than bad. Season six, I've only watched once, and I can't even imagine trying to watch it all the way through again it was all so dreary and full of fail. Edit: Don't get me wrong, the last two episodes were good but for the most part the season accomplished very little. A lot of filler material. Season five did a much better job of advancing the plot.
  6. I like this. I could imagine Sansa telling Daenerys "We've already agreed to bend the knee to the rightful heir to the Targaryen dynasty." Dany smiles. Cut back to Sansa. "Aegon Targaryen." Sansa looks over at Jon. "The legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Targaryen, formerly called Jon Snow. He's already king in the north." The northern lords didn't know so this has led to shouting throughout the room. Jon and Dany exchange looks because Jon didn't know this yet either. Music swells, roll credits.

    Characters we will never see again

    Didn’t they determine it was in fact just a coalition of scorned masters from all around Essos?

    The Walking Dead: Because Season Ate Nine (Comic Spoiler Thread)

    Does anyone know if Andrew Lincoln is supposed to be in the whole season or if he's supposed to be departing before the finale? I think a great midseason finale moment would be

    [Book spoilers] Plot holes that aren't in the books

    Yeah sorry I didn’t notice you were just quoting the article until after I posted. I actually fixed it on a different point. I’ll have to rewatch season one, I didn’t even remember Cersei and Robert discussing it. Season one, episode five: blink and you miss it line about losing their first boy. I've seen that episode more than once and that line never even registered to me.
  10. Why Jon wouldn't legitimize himself makes perfect sense. Why northern lords would say they only bow to the king in the north whose name is Stark and then immediately after bow to a guy called Snow is the real head scratcher. Although it isn't like the northerners have any real principles or loyalties in the show anyway. An exchange where someone says "The northern lords will recognize you as Jon Stark if you want" makes a lot more sense.

    [Book spoilers] Plot holes that aren't in the books

    5. While I do agree that it isn't technically a plot hole, it's definitely information that should have been given where the audience could hear it. Her being barren was going to be important later, of course people were likely to look back at the scene and be confused about where Daenerys got that information since it wasn't explicitly stated. 12. Yeah I don't agree with this being a plot hole either, I'm not sure I understand the article's reasoning for why this would be a plot hole. Osha had no way of knowing that Ramsay tortured Theon and learned about how Osha helped the Starks escape. She really didn't have any way of knowing that Ramsay and Theon even interacted. I disagree wholeheartedly with the decision to bring Osha back after she had been gone for three seasons just to kill her off after a few more minutes of screen time (just have the new Lord Umber bring in Rickon and talk about how they disposed of the wildling off screen), but it is plausible that she would walk into this thinking she had the upper hand and fail miserably. 14. I mean Ser Jorah isn't totally useless in combat and neither are the Dothraki. I think what the OP is saying is that it's unbelievable they got into the guy's bedroom without a commotion loud enough to wake Xaro up. Lax security or not, Dothraki aren't known for their stealth. 15. Yeah I wondered about this too, I would agree though it's a plot hole. Not being able to pass by Moat Cailin was something vital to the plot. 19. Yeah but this is a really amateur mistake that we would expect from anyone besides Littlefinger. Just the fact he would not know that the guys with a flayed man on their banner who just also happened to betray and murder Sansa's older brother, may not be the most hospitable or trustworthy people, it's just an assassination of almost everything we've seen about Littlefinger up to this point. The Littlefinger from seasons 1-4 was arguably the best game player in the show. Seasons 5-7 it's a wonder the guy knew how to spell his name. 20. No, actually it is a pretty big inconsistency. In the commentary track for "The Children" the director, I forget his name, said the Tysha reveal was scripted but they apparently did a few takes it didn't fit so Dan and David recommended him shortening Jaime and Tyrion's final scene. When Tyrion confronted Tywin the script actually called for him to address Tysha but since she was omitted it looks like they compromised by literally keeping the dialogue and just changing Tysha to Shae. Which I could write twenty paragraphs about how stupid that was, but at the very least it did make a lot less sense. 21. I think this is no more complicated than Cersei lying to Catelyn in some attempt at showing empathy. 24. I mean we did just see Myranda fall from this same height and become hamburger meat upon impact immediately prior to this. From a visual storytelling standpoint it's hard to get a sense of how high the snow is. If anything they should have shown the landing and shown Theon and Sansa cushioned by high snow. Leaving it as a cliffhanger makes it much easier to poke at because it doesn't really look like the snow is that high. 29. Yeah I never agreed with calling this one a plot hole. He's technically correct, Dorne's politics seemed kind of irrelevant. I always just assumed Tyrion didn't know how many kids Doran had or their names and just said, the youngest son. If you want to look at a serious Dornish plot hole, let's not forget that a kingsguard was clearly seen accompanying Myrcella to Dorne and then was nowhere to be found after that. 30. It's all just best guess with the Varys retcon. I think one line of dialogue would have fixed this: "King Robert, at the behest of Tywin Lannister had Pycelle read correspondence prepared by myself and Petyr Baelish to ensure our words were true. The message to Jorah was a legitimate pardon on the surface, but a coded message upon further inspection." Clunky, but honestly what in season 7 wasn't? 32. Brienne made a vow to protect Catelyn's children and was ultimately just thinking they were better off with her where ever she happened to be. Not really so much a plot hole or bad writing, just Brienne's character. She didn't think about what the vow might actually entail or how she was going to actually protect Arya. I believe it. 34. Cersei is a competent game player, but she's not an expert on warfare. I agree with you, I don't think it's a plot hole at all, I think she just didn't consider the possibility of Daenerys ever actually getting across the narrow sea. To be honest for about six seasons I was pretty skeptical as to whether or not it was ever going to happen. 36. I can't remember a time where we ever see a wight's body after it's been cut up by Longclaw. I seem to remember in season 7 Jon cutting up wights beyond the wall and them being down for the count without being burned. I'll look out for it next time I rewatch any episodes with wights but I don't think the camera ever shows them after they've been hacked up by Longclaw. It's entirely possible the show actually shows us they are "killed" by Longclaw and I just didn't notice it.

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    Just got back from watching the movie. A few thoughts, don't read if you don't want spoilers.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    I think season 5 should have had a couple characters sit out: Brienne, Podrick, Sansa, maybe Bran, and Sam/ Gilly should have been gone until season six after like episode three of season five. Is it practical to keep starring actors on standby and shelve them for a season? Not really but I would have taken quality iron islands and queenmaker plots if the trade off was we didn’t see Brienne and Podrick wandering around and Sansa’s character being de-developed.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    At the time I subscribed to this theory season five hadn’t aired and the word valonqar hadn’t been formally omitted. Sucks though, the show did set up Littlefinger possibly being the end of Cersei.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I personally loved the theory Cersei got the word that Maggy said slightly wrong and it was valon-kwar instead of valon-car, valon-kwar of course meaning little finger instead of little brother. I was sold on this one when Dany had that line in season two about Kwarth as opposed to Karth, but as season seven would prove I am wrong. I mean I can’t take credit for that theory, but I did believe it had something to it.
