[Book Spoilers] EP405 Discussion

Recommended Posts

In the preview images we've seen of later episodes she's still wearing KL clothes (a different dress, in fact, then the one she has now, making that at least two dresses she still has apart from the one she was wearing when she escaped). Not sure about the ring.

lol costume department. As for an in-universe explanation, i guess Littlefinger swiped a couple of dresses from Sansa's KL wardrobe and stowed em on the ship.

I dunno...I barely noticed her clothes to be honest. :dunno:

I GET IT. Fangirls, I get it.

Come! Join us!!! :wub:

Okay, I wonder who Bran and his mob will sneak up on next? Would it be over the top for coldhands to show up and escort them to , say, the Fist of the First Men? And come on, the loveable Direwolfs, give them a break, let them just hang with their guys. Were good if we just see them padding across the snow, snatching a bit of prey. Please please don't butcher their lines.

What was the point of getting Locke to the Wall, only to kill him off a minute after?

to stab Jon. Is this going to be a mortal wound? Since Bowen Marsh isn't around.... maybe?

Also, on a funny note: On seeing Pod stomping out the rabbit fire, my unsullied brother said, "Gotta tenderize the meat." :laugh:

'What he did shocked me' - Oh typical directors softening up Cersei and going against the books, how unusual.

Against sword and Dagger I would agree, but with a longsword against two daggers and no shield he should be able to hold him at a distance and get a few well placed thrusts in, but who cares really, it's only TV after all :P

Remember how in last ep04 Jon was training recruits to fight with wildlings who use a weapon in each hand.... Brazen foreshadow there. :P

That + The Nerdist Podcast interview where the actor admitted to having improper thoughts when on live telly (the host prompted it by laughing about being on SNL and thinking "wow, I could punch that musician out on live TV!"). Baited me and I bit :wub:

Speaking of sex kittens, ack, I forgot Oberyn!

I loved the Cersei and Oberyn scene. They don't like each other but they can still find common ground. AU where Cersei is engaged to Oberyn instead of Robert? The fur would fly but hot damn. Cersei talking about Myrcella killed me. She just couldn't fucking be hostile to Oberyn once he said how happy she was getting to play at the beach, except try to say "nah, don't beleive you." "No place is kind to little girls" :crying: Oberyn's face, to my vodka-soaked eyes, seemed to be "you are a crazy bitch but damn I see what made you that way."

...SAND SNAKES!!!

And Pod. Light of my dorky life! You dorky motherfucker stop sawing on your poor horse's mouth! But the scene with Brienne was precious.

Finally finished tonight's ep. This was a pretty fun episode all the way through, starting with the obvious glee of more Aiden Gillen derp, which I was disappointed to see did not appear past the 20 minute mark but will undoubtedly return in "Mockingbird" .



Of all of the things that happened though, I actually did enjoy being spoiled this time around. We know now--and I think it's safe to say that this one isn't one that D&D invented, GRRM probably created it--that Jojen dies by fire. I'm pretty convinced that this will mean that Jojen is burned by Mel. We know that Mel sees Bran and BR and presumingly Jojen and Meera as servants of the Great Other and I think it's likely to conclude that if Jojen is to die by fire then he is taken/sacrifices himself and is burned by Mel.



In the books the last we know so far is that Jojen and Meera are still with Bran, BR and the gang and that he is very weak and depressed by the time they reach the cave. He wants to return to Greywater Watch but also has the greendream about it and realizes that has an unfavorable outcome. Mel has that vision where she sees Bran and co. along with BR.



Just my two cents; apologies if someone else has already thrown this out there. I had no desire to grind through all of the posts.

Oberyn is the business. I loved how he was more rounded this episode. Yeah. All eight Sand Snakes mentioned.

Im going to enjoy Pod/Brienne Roadtrip.

Ehm oh yeah where did Jojen get the fire? I need to rewatch. I didn't notice a sconce in range.



GHOST! BROTP!!! It was like that bit from Brotherhood of the Wolf.



Well, my city elf Warden was a frickin' unstoppable murder machine with dual daggers, but I probably shouldn't apply a fantasy RPG to real stuff like GOT.

It's right before the NW comes in and starts fighting. Jojen is explaining to Bran the need to get to the wierwood tree and has the vision of it behind Bran. Then when he talks about his own death he is staring at his hand, where we initially see nothing. But then the camera shifts and is placed behind him and we see his hand aflame.

I could have bought her keeping the ring out of habit until Petyr explained her new identity, but after, when she's already supposedly masquerading as Alayne? Makes no sense.

Agreed. I'm confused. Keep thinking its an 'oversight', but yeah...no..that's impossible. And then I thought she would change it after she changed her identity, but no...still there. Then, I asked a friend of mine what they thought about her wearing the ring and the answer was as simple as it gets: "Because she's still married to Tyrion." Made me think that perhaps she'll think Tyrion dead and take it off then. *Shrugs* At this point, its the only theory I can think of.

Ehehee, my first thought as the credits rolled was "uh oh Jon, you'll have to guard whatever virtue you have left." The ladies ain't staying at the compound.


Yes Kit looked wonderful when he reunited with Ghost. Dude has skyrocketed up my lust list.

Yes, I saw the fire. I wasn't sure if it was his vision or actual fire that he beat out during the cut XD. Don't know why the weirwood looked so scenic that far north but it was pretty.

"Gimme."

Ghost is so cute. Awww i wanna pet it!

Cersie, we always loved you, and to hear you open up and share, well I, I just don;t know what to say. One thing I can say is, it's known, the book is 9 times out of 10 better than the show. And this is not that one time. The story is lost, they're treading on water.
