(Book Spoilers) Positive Nitpicking thread...

Recommended Posts

Your weekly positive nitpicking thread.

The episodes just keep getting better, and the build-up faster. I had so many favorite moments I can't possibly list them, so I'll go with my top 5:

1. "Kill the Boy, Jon Snow" - I cried.

2. Sansa meeting Reek - I cried again.

3. Jorah saves Tyrion and gets greyscale (NOOOOOOO!)

4. Tyrion sees Drogon.

5. Stannis saying 'fewer' (whoo, callback!)

I know I've left plenty for you guys, what did you just love? Remember, keep on topic! Thanks!

I actually can't think of much I didn't like outside of Daenerys storyline.



Stannis said fewer



Shireen was adorable with Davos



Jon Snow was cool



Tormund's beard



Others mention



Kill the boy and not let any lines be changed for no reason



Sam and Gilly/Aemon



Sansa saw Reek



Ramsay was Ramsaying everyone



Roose had a motivational speech to his son ... based on him assaulting and killing his mother and stepfather



The North Remembers



No Dorne, Sand Snakes, Jaime, Batfinger or Loras the Cartoon

JORAH GOT THE GREYSCALE NEENER NEENER! ahahahaha



Tyrion's reaction to seeing Drogon was very nice.



FAT WALDA!

Definitely my favourite episode so far.



1. Stannis in a furry cloak.


2. Stannis the grammar nazi (The North remembers but Davos does not!)


3. Mel throwing Jon a filthy look.


4. Edd remembering Pyp and Grenn.


5. Jon/Thormund scene


6. Sansa meeting Reek


7. Bolton dinner from Hell (move over Baratheons, we have a new winner) and the Ramsay/Roose scene was brilliant. Roose is a piece of work.


8. Aemon!!!!!


9. Stannis and Sam scene.


10. Sam and Gilly scene (I always love these idgaf)

The best of the season, but this has been a sub-mediocre season at best. I felt more intune and I was actually interested in our characters, especially Stannis. I do see a bad ending for Shireen, though. Danny's proposal was hilarious, considering how I feel about her character.

Greyscale.

Honestly, it's one of the things I'm most interested in the entire WoIaF, so it was great to see it in the show. I'll rate it 8.9/10

I liked the moment where Tyrion sees Drogon.

Can we be sure about that being Drogon? Why would he be so far away from Mereen and Daenerys?... I wonder if there´s a chance that wasn´t Drogon, if it could be a new and unknown Dragon roaming around Valyria..

The Northern smallfolk remember.



The off-beat recap, focusing on characters such as Olly, Shireen, Gilly, etc.



Stannis and Sam.



Stannis the grammer Nazi.



A whole lot of backstory.

It was Drogon for sure. Same colors (red and black).

Stannis - "Fewer."



Drogon



Stannis - "Keep reading Samwell Tarly." + Dragonstone has dragonglass



Davos & Shireen back together again



Queen Mustache continuing to be the Worst



Sansa seeing friction between Ramsay and Roose



Oly & Jon



Tormund & Jon



Sansa & Theon



Jorah & Tyrion talking ancient Valyria



Valyria Today (even though I still wish we had gotten the Rhoyne and the Sorrows...although I get why they did it this way instead)



Dany feeding the one random Noble to her dragons



Hizdahr - "...but, I am the leader of my family?"



Fat Walda / Dinner with the Boltons



Just to repeat how boss Stannis has been this season...he's so gunna die soon



If Stannis won he and Shireen would teach the whole world to read and speak properly.

Castle Black scenes were great.

LOVE that Jorah has greyscale.

Didn't enjoy certain things from the Winterfell part too much, but I'm glad the episode was focused on the Northern storyline. Fat Walda is amazing. I hope she's spared.

Also, no Sand Snakes.

Lots of stuff I loded this episode:



Daenerys embracing her fire and blood side. Loved it. The "proposal" to Hizdar was quite humorous as well.



Samwell telling Aemon about Dany.



Sansa's little side glance at Ramsey after finding out Fat Walda was pregnant



Roose telling Ramsey how he was conceived.

It's almost definitely Drogon. D&D have been thinning the book plot as much as possible and tying parts together for the series. Also they are being seriously stingy with the visual effects budget, adding another dragon in would just cost more.

And why wouldn't Drogon return to valyria, it's where his kind originate from and it's the best place for him to chill and look badass
