Ruin Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 (edited) I wouldn't say that the entire story was ruined, perhaps limited? I can see your point, and the homages/brothel/filler/whateverthehellscenes really did eat up screen time that could've been put to better use. I guess I'm one of those fools that thinks we'll see Stoney next season, perhaps even with her own filler scenes, lol. In S2 a lot of people thought Ramsay had been cut...Jojen and Meera entered a bit later in the story...Jorah's exile was pushed a little back, and who knows what the hell is going to happen in Dorne, lol. *Possible Spoilers* One of the deviations had me thinking...how many troops does ShowStannis possess now? With his stop in Braavos, and with the Davos making it rain scene with Sala...did the show address J. Massey's task in TWOW? Are we to assume that he succeeded, or will Stannis later search to hire more swords from Essos. I know in an episode this season Davos suggests hiring the Golden Company, and Stannis shrugs him off, but that contradicts his thoughts later on in TWOW...even suggesting that J. Mass go look for them...oh the irony... And will ShowStan hook up with the Northern mountain clans...or will that just be casually mentioned in a filler scene...possibly like the one below... Davos, "Your Grace, several mountain clans have come to pledge their swords..."ShowStannis, "Yes...yes...make sure they know how to kneel properly."Mel, "They don't...I've seen it my fires."*Cue Evil Stannis Music*ShowStannis grinds his teeth.Davos, "Your Grace, you are the rightful King..."*Selyse enters scene* Its FRIGGIN COLD HERE....*Selyse leaves*ShowStannis, "We're not leaving until they kneel."Mel, "If you burn someone perhaps they may get the hint..."Davos, "Your Grace...SHE'S EVIL!"*Mel looking into the fire* "Again Davos?"*Davos fails to stab Mel a second time"ShowStannis, "You know the drill Davos."*Shireen enters scene* "I'm bored...do we get Patchface this season...or do I have to teach someone else how to read?"
