    Details on Prequel Pilot Revealed

    But it did seem to exist in ways that it no longer does in the present timeline. It doesn't seem like it was everywhere all the time but certainly it did appear and was more widespread than later after the Andals came and the Seven became the dominant Faith. There was also examples of people being sold into slavery back then as well so the taboo on slavery was perhaps a bit less maybe due to having thraldom, which would prove a counterpoint in this serious to contrast it with Dany's quest in GOT. I like the mention of seeing some of the east because there is a lot East so there are many possibilities, especially because we did get some information on this in the World Book about how those civilisations of the east dealt with the Long Night and what their own myths about that event were. Maybe we might get to see what the Dothraki Sea looked like at this time. Something of the Rhoynar. Maybe even hear some Asshai rumours. Golden Empire of the Dawn/Yi Ti would also be very interesting at this time as well.

    There was also polygamy and thraldom at this time. As well as the Old Gods holding much more sway obviously with no Seven which may carry with it a practice of sacrifice.
  3. I think she had some affection for him but not love. She certainly felt guilt and regret over how he died. She's not a total cold hearted manipulator, they got to know each other during her seduction of him so she probably grew to like him or at least have some sort of fondness for him. She certainly clearly didn't want him to die like he did. She used him but I don't think she ever wanted anything bad to happen to him or anyone involved in her plans. She doesn't seem cruel in anyway at all, she feels remorse over it.
  4. Dorne probably also suffered a lot from the wars with the Targaryen's more so than any other kingdom. they may have started things off with a significantly bigger population than they do now, maybe bigger than the Stormlands but after all the wars that may have seen their population shrink by quite a bit.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Wow, totally forgot about that. For some reason when I think of Daella,I think of the one who may or may not have been betrothed to Aegon V. Thanks for the memory jog.

    Margaery or any Tyrell really. Just to get a view into that camp.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    I don't dislike them, I'm just not that into them. In general we already know so much about them. I enjoyed the world book for all the info we got on regions and their history , I'm more interested in the pre-conquest times than post-conquest times. But I don't dislike the Targs just generally find other families more my bag. Doesn't mean I'm not interested in some of the Targs just less so than other characters. I guess I'd just like to see more about the women in general especially ones with political power they were born to. Jeyne Arryn is quite vaguely drawn so far, although considering that we don't have a name for the Princess of Dorne who was the mother to Doran, Elia and Oberyn, she's one up in that category. Also I wonder what the other paramour families thought of the Arryn's getting a Targ marriage? I wonder if there was a blood reason for the Aemma marriage, could she have had a Targ linked mother, like a Velaryon or Baratheon? The Regency of Aegon III is probably the part I'm most interested in and finding about how relations with Dorne were. There seems to have always been tensions there and problems that trace their heritage to the pre-conquest times so it was never going to be a truly peaceful border. It'll be interesting to see how Jaehaerys dealt with that as you've talked about earlier in the thread especially as he seemed to have been liked/respected there. Morever be intrigued to know the various different stances of the Kings and their hands through that period, did the hands from the Reach/Stormlands want to push for war? Maybe did secretly agitate things so the King had to take a more forceful stance? Did the Kings and the Prince/Princess meet? Like Aegon went to Sunspear? Did Deria ever come back to KL?

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Honestly as someone who's not that into the Targs, I'm more looking forward to the snippets about the other characters around them, be nice if we got some fleshed out information about the court around the monarch. I hope we get some good information about the wives of the kings and the roles they played. I'd love some Jeyne Arryn information and the role she played on the regency council and some info about her life, she was the only LP on the council after all so she had more personal than anyone else away from the council (aside from hands). Perhaps some new Dorne information about their relationship with the Iron throne through the years.

    I wonder if Brienne will break Stannis' sword like she did in the earlier episodes with those Vale knights. That way he's lost it all, not daughter, no wife, no priestess and now his magic sword is shattered too.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    While I certainly didn't hate this episode, I didn't enjoy it a much as I have done other finales. I felt it lacked in emotion and depth. There were many set piece and big moments, but there seemed little in the way of any real character driven moments where we understand people motivations and learn more about them. The Tyrion stuff seemed much less impactful in the show and I hated the way the Shae stuff came about, was nice to see Tywin get his like he did, but it didnt have the same depth of emotion as in the books. I missed not having LS but I've waited for that for so long now that I kind of accepted it probably wasn't going to happen just so I wouldn't be disappointed as much. The Children visually didn't quite work for me either, and BR didn't look quite as I imagined him, he seemed underwhelming.
