    [Book Spoilers] EP409 Discussion

    The wedding and Frey Pies Blackfish escaping sons of the harpy Brienne and Pod if that doesn't happen in this next episode There really hasn't been anything other than minor clashes for most of this season outside of the battle on the wall and I think people overall are more interested in the game play and the interpersonal dynamics and 4 & 5 were filled with that. I mean, we have the rise of the sparrows to flesh out, Stannis and the conflict at the wall with Melisandre and Jon and whatever Shireen's purpose will be. Plus Mance infiltrating Winterfell and Yara (Asha) getting caught and reunited with Theon. There is just so much that I think may have read as boring in the books but given the quality of the cast can be just perfect. I mean, just Tyrion talking about people gets rave reviews so I don't think we need serious action to satisfy people.

    What I like about the Sans change is that she knew how important her name was and she isn't going to let Littlefinger hide her

    [Book Spoilers] EP406 Discussion

    After that small council I made a comment about "time for another letter" and my husband, who is Unsullied, was confused. I explained that Oberyn is keeping his brother informed and that there's some new info that he needs to know. Also, he probably wanted to clear up that he wasn't the one to poison the king. There could seriuosly be a whole Tumblr dedicated to Oberyn's letters to Dorne. "King poisoned, wasn't me" "Targ heir is a girl now, is Quentyn still available" "Dragons be big" "Varys=not into boys"

    Really enjoyed this episode. Nothing to say about the trial scene that hasn't been said other than the dynamics were great. The scheming and plotting between Tywin and Jamie and Jamie and Tyrion and meanwhile Cersei just sitting there until the trial of combat moment and just slight facial expression of satisfaction. Glad to see Dany being unsure. Emilia is a good actress but they've been riding the Dany Triumphant train for a whole season now and I"m glad to see it come to a halt. Last episode we had her acknowleding she should have listend to Jorah's council and now, with her look at Barristan after her realization about crucifying the masters and how she should have listened to him. Will make the betrayal even more difficult as I think we're going to start seeing her lean on them more. I also like the my fleshed out Hizdar, his character always felt rushed in the book. Oberyn my heart is already breaking for you. Tremendous acting by Alfie in the Reek scene. It was filler but I didn't mind it because I find all of these characters more captivating than random Nights Watch assholes. Also, expecting Moat Cailin to be Episode 8 or 10 with the news of Balon's death coming and maybe that's why Victarion leaves? I"m thinking we will have way more Greyjoy next season along with Dorne. I also liked the DAvos, STannis scene. I remember in the book feeling like part of the issue with Stannis was that he was broken on the Blackwater and Davos had to keep trying to rile him, while Mel kept trying to use her magic to seduce him. We saw him kinda being carried on by Mel's plan but not being happy about it and now we get a rousing speech of loyalty from Davos just in time for Episode 9: How Stannis Got His Groove Back

    I feel like it has to end with Asha seeing what Theon has become and calling it off and fleeing. Then we can move forward with the Greyjoy plot and the Ramsey/Winterfell plot. I don't remember in the books. Does Asha know Theon is alive or do they assume him did? Also, again, not killing Balon yet mean no Kingmoot. I wonder at this point if they're planning on just waiting to kill him towards the end of the season: Kind of a Stannis ascent ending: beating the Wildlings, maybe having the back of the bank and the final "fake" king dying. Then next season we're looking at the Greyjoys and Dorne being more prevalent while Kingslanding starts to take a backseat.

    It does when combined with the fact that although she was acting nice she totally felt threatened by Sansa. That was her reminder to him, also why she had the Septon there. She is crazy but she gets her shit locked down.

    I felt like this episode was classic Cersei: giving away the horse to achieve what you want in the moment. Constantly thinking she's the smartest one in the room and not realizing that Marg was so on to her with the "sister or mother" comment. Cersei's problem has always been that what she wants to accomplish is always too tied to emotions and it makes her act desperate. Things just get worse after Tywin dies because at least she trusts him. Loved that the girl Karl was abusing was the one to put the knife in his back. Not surprised all the women were basically like "everything with a dick needs to pack it on up and get out of our site." Didn't care about the Jon Arryn reveal and loved the look on Sansa's face when she heard about marrying Sweet Robin. I kinda like Sansa knowing the score with Lyssa right away, will be interesting to see how she moves forward the next few episodes. Arya and the Hound, filler but I love them. Craster's Keep was wrapped us as best as they could but felt it was more about needing to give Jon a "leadership" moment outside of the wall since Thorne is still around (the butterfly effect GRRM talked about). Also, with Locke eliminated sticking by my theory that Bowen Marsh will be comign in next season for Eastwatch by the Sea. My theory is that's where Stannis lands before moving inland

    I honestly think the thing that I was most annoyed with in this episode was all the time dedicated to North of the Wall and how the slave revolt in Mereen was a blip. I feel like one of the big things in the book is that while Dany moves triumphant from city to city she is still leaving devestation and violence (whether it's righteous or not) in her wake. I was looking for some good on Tarantino style revenge violence, not just one guy getting rushed in an Alley. You could have cut out a lot of the the Karl is the best fighter, fuck them til their dead, taunt the thirsty direwolf stuff and really start making Danys story bigger. I'm glad they kept the crucifiction piece and it wasn't too glossed over but I'm ready to return to a semblance of depth with Dany's story. Especially since, without being captivated by her POV, we can really explore what the siege was like and why it's going to be so hard for her to rule. Love anything with Brienne. Enjoyed the Littlefinger-Sansa dynamic and the segue to QoT-Marg. Glad to see they are going to keep the war between Marg and Cersei over Tommen alive and I hope they throw a little more Tywin in to keep it interesting. Liked Locke being at the wall, adds a different air of animosity.
