    Dany CAN (And Shall???) Rise Again!!!

    I'd likely watch anything they put out. I'm just interested in that universe, so no matter how much I moan about it, I'd probably watch it. I would at least try it out. If it bores me, I'd probably drift away.

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    Yeah, but the dragons on GoT don't have bridles, they can't feel their riders leg cues like a horse can...if there isn't some sort of telepathic connection, how in the world do they know where to turn? When to land? When to kill? When not to? When one person is to be executed, but someone standing nearby isn't to be harmed? Something is going on with the dragons (those with riders) beyond what you would have with a regular pet!

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    I kind of assumed that there was a similar relationship between the wolves and their masters and the dragons and their riders. I don't understand how else a tiny human would be able to tell them exactly what to do, who to burn and who not to, without some sort of mental connection. So because of that, I also came to the conclusion that Drogon would have a fairly good idea of what Daenerys' goals were/what had consumed her. At the same time, I sort of envision a dragon never disobeying its rider, because they are of a same mind. So Drogon would not have hesitated to burn whatever and whomever Daenerys wanted him to burn, because their minds are one(ish). That's all just assumptions and theorizing, but that's what I've been thinking all along, since Daenerys starting riding Drogon.
  4. I think she would go for Dany, or whatever she thinks would hurt Dany the most. If that were seeing her people burn, she might do that. I don't think she would go out of her way to burn the smallfolk like Dany did, but its not because she is more caring or less brutal. I think she just wouldn't be thinking about them much at all, unless they could be used in some way.

    GRRM's (Brief) Thoughts on the Final Episode

    Every time he addresses the books in his blog, I end up feeling a bit irritated. Especially when he lists the multitude of other things he has going on. I do happen to think he will finish tWoW. I seriously doubt aDoS will be released by him. Especially when he reiterated recently that he hasn't even started aDoS (rejecting the notion that he has been doing some work on both). Maybe it'll be released posthumously, completed by someone else. This may be dumb, but this is the primary reason I haven't read the books. I feel irritated now, and I haven't even read them! I hate reading unfinished series'. I feel relieved that the show is over and I know how it all ends. But disappointed that I may never see what GRRM really intended as far as how it all came about. I don't want to start the series, get involved, and then want to pull my hair out every time I hear about a new project he is working on (more than I already do now).
  6. I've only watched the show, so that explains my perspective on that!
  7. Did it, though? She was screaming about taking what was hers with "fire and blood" in season 2. She looked basically aroused listening to Drogo promising to "rape their women" and "enslave their children" (speaking about the Westerosi). What do you think happens to the smallfolk in this scenario? This scene made me sick. Lots of people knew if she ever did cross the narrow sea, there would be a LOT of suffering in the name of her "taking what is hers". To me, we view Daenerys' character in fundamentally different ways. I would say that one of characteristics that she has ALWAYS had, is being totally certain of herself and what is right, and what she is owed. So she wouldn't ask the question "am I wrong?" or say "I'm afraid of what I'm becoming". That's not her. That would have been totally OOC in my opinion. Some people are attracted to her certainty and "strength" but as she got to be more certain of herself as the seasons went on, my liking of her decreased. She grew arrogant and unaware of her brutality. The gentleness that Jorah had seen, faded away. She would never question her actions the way Jon did, because they are nearly opposite personalities.
  8. Well, he did kill his commander. While he was too young to be in that role, he was mutinous. And besides all that - you can hardly say that Jon didn't bat an eye at doing it. It was obviously difficult for him and he didn't want to do it. It was more similar to Ned beheading NW deserters, whether he wanted to or not.
  9. Really? Any other character? What things did Jon do that were cold and ruthless, without batting an eye?
  10. I think there IS a difference between how Daenerys often killed people and how most of the characters on the show killed people. Her methods and total lack of feeling towards those she felt deserved it always chilled me. Crucifixion is supposed to be one of the most painful and drawn out deaths imaginable. Burning people alive. Even very early on, her reaction to Viserys being 'crowned' was pretty chilling. When Arya killed her victims, she sometimes did it in really horrible ways, too. I disagree that we were to really "cheer" her. I have a hard time believing (but judging from this thread, it's true) that people honestly "cheered" Daenerys when she would kill her enemies in various horrible ways without even batting an eye. Didn't her ruthlessness ever make you uneasy? That said, I also felt that her decent from killing her enemies without mercy, to killing innocent civilians without mercy, was - as almost everyone has been saying - too rapid. This was the woman who had been broken up over her dragons killing a child. How many children did she command her dragon to burn in KL? But for those who are offended that Tyrion was basically addressing the viewer when he said "we cheered her"...maybe it is worth looking at one's reactions to violent death on screen. I know it is "just" fiction. But I do find the exultation over graphic and terrible deaths (even when they are bad people) to be kind of disturbing. If Daenerys was supposed to be without a doubt a heroic figure in earlier seasons, why are there quite a few people who didn't like her ruthlessness and her arrogance and felt uneasy at the prospect of her crossing into Westeros to destroy "her enemies"?

    Did Bran know all the time he is the future king?

    I viewed it as the first one. He knew some needed to die in order for Jon to kill Daenerys, which would prevent an even greater loss of life. I don't see what motive Bran would have to be elected as king. What personal gain, from his perspective? Gilded wheelchair wheels? Edit: I'm someone who thinks that Daenerys was always eventually going to go crazy. Maybe it would have taken years, but I think she would have killed a looooot of people over her reign. So preventing her from losing Viserion and everything that happened after that, may not have been in the best interest of Westeros in the long term. But I'm not convinced that Bran can see THAT far in the future, or that he always understands everything he sees, or that he sees the whole picture. We don't have proof of that.

    Your favorite individual acting performance

    Yes, Rory McCann was so good! Yes, absolutely Dance as Tywin was amazing. Such a memorable performance. And I agree about Iain as well, Jorah was very believable.

    Praise without Repercussion, Final Edition

    The visuals were amazing, as always. Daenerys walking with Drogon flapping his wings in the background, making her look like a dragon, very cool. Drogon shaking himself off and changing from what looked like a pile of rubble, into a dragon. Drogon melting the IT. Strangely, although Daenerys' descent into cruelty/madness/whatever you want to call it, really happened this season, I haven't really cared for her character for a few seasons now. And this episode brought me back to the season 2 finale, when she was in the House of the Undying. I had felt so sorry for her, being without her husband and her son. This episode made me pity her journey and feel something for her again. It was nice to end off her arc with me caring for her again (not saying she shouldn't have died, but caring that she did and her long journey to get where she did), instead of feeling nothing. Sansa's dress was beautiful...nice to see her out of leather, lol. The blade of grass, north of the wall. Ghost getting his pets and Jon reclaiming his northern identity..where he belongs. Brienne finishing Jaime's page. Sure, she was fudging things a bit, but he didn't deserve to only be remembered as the kingslayer.

    Your favorite individual acting performance

    I thought Emilia Clarke was better than she has been for a few years. I've found her a bit one-note over the years, post...since I don't know, maybe the end of season 2? But that is probably just due to Daenerys. I've felt that her scenes with Kit have been quite flat over the past couple years. I thought she did well playing Daenerys coming off the rails. EDIT - if you are asking about the whole series, that is a much harder question but it definitely wouldn't be Emilia. Nikolaj has had some amazing scenes (the 'kingslayer' speech comes to mind) but there have been a lot of great performances. I still LOVE Ned, and I think a lot of that is down to Sean Bean's acting.
