Thelastactionhero Posted April 21, 2014 Share Posted April 21, 2014 Well, on the bright side, he's not burning infidels. So that's good On the downside, he still does nothing and shows none of his dry wit. And ambiguously threatens to kill Davos and generally treats him like shit. Oh, well. Shireen's great, though Yeah the threat was dumb, but it wasn't as bad as other scenes they've done with him. That's the only nice thing about D&D's adaptation, it's been so botched that mediocre scenes like this look that much better. I actually liked some of the dialogue though. His line about "they don't have enough men between the three of them to raid a pantry," was hilarious. I was a little surprised they had him so opposed to hiring sell swords though? Book!Stannis is cool with it, and Show!Stannis is cool with murdering any number of innocents to get his birth right. They obviously aren't handling his arc with care, but what can you do? I'm sitting back with my popcorn and enjoying the show. This is a companion piece to Martin's masterful piece of fantasy and nothing more. It's funny how some fans actually think the show is evidence that our interpretations of Stan from the text are misreadings and projections. The show isn't the definitive word on anything regarding the books, it's an adaptation by fans just like us with an extremely large budget.
