[Book Spoilers] EP508 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Now that is a spooky thought. Kind of reminds of the lead villain in S. King's Storm of the Century. "Give me what I want and I'll go away."

I've always believed the Starks had made a pact with the Others. And the fact Rickard and Brandon died without been able to inform Ned -who wasn't the heir- about it could have caused them to hit South and come to claim what they want or wanted a Stark in return. Who knows, maybe Jon decides to go on his own.

Yeah when Sam said Jon always comes back, I was like SPOILER ALERT.

Great ep, Tyrion/Dany is OUR gift...

lol yes I turned to my unsullied GF after that scene and giggled so much I wound up telling her Jon gets stabbed and ruining it for her lol.

IMO this was the best episode since season 1. Hardhome was excellent, tyrion/dany was great and arya, cersei, Sansa were all on point.

Only scene that didn't really fit was the Sam and olly scene but it served to remind/set up to Jon's expedition and more story for whatever olly does to Jon. Oh yeah and it gave the biggest foreshadowing in the history of foreshadowing.

Really I'm so pumped after that hardhome scene I want to watch it again right now.

I tend to think the Night's King might not be a spoiler, just a device they might be using to give the Others a more focused antagonistic power for the show and to highlight their (probable) human origins.

It might not be this guy, but there's something specific up there in the Heart of Winter. Bran saw it in one of his first visions.

nice assumption, Its in regards to how the book readers think they're so cool, but always envy how the world enjoys the show more.

And that's not an assumption?

For all the hate the show gets (only some of it deserved) they really did show up and impress with this one. Too many purists will whine over every little change, most of them unavoidable and had to happen in order for the series to work. I loved the way they handled this episode. So great. The remaining episodes look to be just as awesome. Can't wait for them and hopefully for TWOW before next season.

Ratings and revenue says otherwise. Have fun waiting 5 more years for the next book and another 10 for the final book.

Ratings and revenue say "Faster N' Furiouser 6" is a good movie, what does that mean

I was completely underwhelmed by the final battle. Personally, an impressive fight scene is not one that throws as much crap on the screen as possible and adds to the tension by shaking the camera.

You must be special then.

Honestly, I'm just hoping the big reveal for Sansa about Bran and Rickon leads to even a glimpse of Bran this season. Y'know...what with the coolest part of his entire plotline happening right about now......

I really loved every scene leading up to Hardhome. Arya's were great because it gave us a little more context about the FM and that they at least do some good in the world. Lena's performance was brilliant as usual. Reek reveal to Sansa was gold. The only so-so scenes were the Boltons and Sam/Olly, but honestly after that incredible battle I don't think many of the casual viewers will be remembering those scenes too well.

I couldn't agree more with everything you said

didn't the preview show fire and then afterwards stannis walking?

Major misdirection going on if you are right.

Actually its more than that; an attack happens next week and stannis is definitely alive in ep 10, cos the synopsis says he is....

Well, I'm aure that Stannis doesn't die next week but in Episode 10. I don't think he necessarily dies next week. I think it'll just push him or Selyse into burning Shireen.

Same here. Though, I've never thought, that Ned would have never known, because his father and brother were inconveniently killed.

Damn Aerys. Dude is always screwing things up.

Not easy at all. Even 3 dragons belting fire from their mouths can't cover all that terrain the wights will be crawling all over. It would take a lot of work even for 3 dragons, assuming they don't get killed by White Walkers with long-range bows and arrows.

I think the question isn't if TV Night's King is a device, it's how much.
