    Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

    There were plenty of scenes on Dragonstone in which they could have shown the women...

    Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

    I assumed that too but I think it's really weird that we didn't see any Dothraki women at all this season. It wouldn't have cost much to have had a few in the background in some scenes.

    And a related question, who are the highly sexed Dothraki men having sex with on Dragonstone? ;-)

    Where are the Dothraki women and children? Did Daenerys leave them behind in Essos?
  5. And in terms of ASOIAF, I think Daenerys and Jon/Aegon being co-rulers, is consistent with their respective character development and it fits into the theme of building a better world.
  6. I agree with most of what you've said but I think that Jon being the man of honour he is and recognizing that Daenerys has earned her place in the world, will say that he already bent the knee and will not go back on his word. She might then insist they become co-rulers (that's assuming they win the game).
  7. Yep, that's genealogy 101. Cersei wasn't a blood relative of king Robert's so she wasn't in line to the throne by virtue of having been his wife. They really should have included something to show that the people didn't just accept it without question to make it more believable. It's also pretty illogical how she's just dropped her dead husband's name. Widows normally retained their married names, just as Lysa, Catelyn and Olenna did. Kind of related, did you notice that even way back at Joffrey's wedding among the decorations there were only "L-s" for Lannister, there were no "B-s" for Baratheon? I'm sure it was an oversight but it came across to me like a subtle way of thumbing their noses at all the talk of "Joffrey is a Lannister without an ounce of Baratheon blood".

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Well put. I wrote something similar on another site recently: it's still a visual feast but there is very little substance. Speaking of visual feasts, I think the costume design, make up, and all things design related are excellent, but the creative staff really fall short with Cersei's wig and crown. I don't know why they can't get her wig right. It looks so cheap and worn out. Meanwhile the crown (technically just a tiara) is way too modest and half arsed for such a power mad and egotistical character. Also, the Lannisters are supposed to be renowned for their gold and it's even one of their house colours, but the crown looks like it's made of steel or pewter. They didn't even have to make a new crown for her, she could have worn Tommen's. The high level of design in the show makes these little mistakes stand out like sore thumbs to me.
  9. I agree, but I would add another thing that frustrates me and that is the lamest of lame responses: "can you do better?", as if to say that only film makers have the right to an opinion of film, only writers have the right to an opinion of scripts, etc, etc. Anyone with the senses of sight and hearing has the right to an opinion of a tv show AND the right to express it online. Also, there is no right or wrong in most of these storylines. If a scene or dialogue doesn't ring true for the individual viewer, it doesn't mean his or her opinion is wrong.
  10. Silly question, but am I the only one who feels a bit guilty complaining about the dumb plot holes? I mean, I really love the visual feast that GoT has always been and truly appreciate the production team's hard work and creativity, but the fucking dumb moments are so disappointing that I just have to let it out and complain.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 705?

    2 out of 10. This episode was the low point of the season, maybe even the entire series.
  12. The scene with Davos, Jon and Missandei was so badly written and redundant. Also, Missandei may have been born in a place where there was no marriage, but she was stolen and sold into slavery as a child and experienced cultures which did had marriage and the concept of illegitimate children. Pretty silly for a character who is as worldly and intelligent to have to ask Jon Snow why his surname isn't Stark.
  13. 9. I had to take a point off for two very stupid things: - Daenerys burning the supply wagons. - How deep was that lake near the shoreline???

    How did The Reach lose?

    It seemed to me that Tarly coming to the Lannister side was symbolic of the great bulk (or even all) of the Reach lords turning their backs on Olenna. It is the only way to explain how the Olenna could be defeated so easily.
  15. This bothers me too, but more in the sense that this is a world in which a woman walks out of a raging fire unscathed, beasts that were believed mythical or extinct return and many other magical things have been witnessed, but they are completely dismissive of what Jon says he has seen.
