    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    By this stage I'm not sure anything May does or does not do has any real effect on anything.

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    Except for those who put a lot of faith in the fiery god... they always use R’hllor. But Red Rahloo is so much better, and the context in which we’ve learned this... “alias” is just perfection.

Isaac; I think Bran presents a valuable reminder to us all in this day and age where sensationalism is rife and anybody can voice an opinion to millions, to sit and consider things a little more carefully.” https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/game-thrones-series-finale-bran-stark-as-king-explained-isaac-hempstead-wright-guest-column-1212195

    Dany does not have to go to Westeros

    She certainly doesn't have to and lately she doesn't seem eager to go there. When she'll come back to Meeren she will have to decide once and for all. fAegon has made his move and has started his conquest (we'll see how this goes in the long run) so now she has no other choice, either she goes right away and states her own claim or she stays in Essos and forgets about Westeros. She will be expected by several people who will push to go there, first Moqorro and Marwyn, probably Tyrion who has scores to settle there... And of course Victarion who was sent there to bring her west with his ships. Like many I don't really see her stay in Meeren even though the situation is complicated and she will most likely feel guilty to leave. With her enemies weakened I hope we'll have a resolution of the whole Sons of the Harpy storyline come to an end. That would be the push needed to leave. I want her to face fAegon and meet Jon sooner rather than later. I long thought that wouldn't happen before ADoS but I'm not sure so sure now. I strongly believe Jon will be resurrected but will stay Lord Commander of the NW, how could he not? Who in Westeros would seriously believe he died and came back? He had too much honor to leave and be seen as a deserter (the story with Ned executing someone who just did that). He will be an ally fAegon will want on his side as he is very respected (Cersei wanted to get rid of him) and the new king will offer to release him from his vow and Jon will want to get dragonglass from Dragonstone. As he will go south to meet fAegon I'm fairly confident he'll also meet Dany newly arrived on that island...
  7. Robert was a idiot. A fun-loving, lovesick idiot. And he was a bad king. Varys, Jaime and Pycelle should have never been able to keep their jobs. Cersei should have never been able to stack the deck in her favor and her favor exclusively (i.e. how many soldiers in King's Landing were Lannister soldiers in A Game of Thrones?). Littlefinger should have been watched much more closely. Sending Stannis to kill Viserys and Daenerys was unnecessary and, ultimately, wasteful. And it backfired. Failing to reward Stannis properly was a stupid mistake and, frankly, it was mean. Tywin should have been punished and Ser Gregory and Ser Amory executed. The Sack of King's Landing was awful. And why does it seem like everyone in the Small Council knew the truth about Cersei's children except for Robert? How many friends did Robert really make in the end? Not very many...summer friends vs. winter friends. If Robert really had friends, the story would have been very different.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    I remember exactly where I was when it came over the radio that Marbury had been traded. Imagine what could have been if he just accepted to be Robin to KG's Batman.... Anyways, tonight's a make or break game. I hope the Raptors can get this series tied.
  9. LOLOLOLOL Man, I want to see it! I want to see David and Dan smugly explaining shit I didn’t get because I’m so dumb and not worthy of understanding their superior intellect! I want it so bad it hurts!

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    My man EtD is in my eyes clearly the most important martial arts films ever made, and I don't think anything will ever replace it. SO many tropes were created in that film.
  11. But it is kinda absurd to say that, say the Vale hasn't the same right as the North to become independent because the Arryns have been ruling them as kings only for 6000 years... I think 6000 years is quite enough time to develop a national identity... Same goes for the Lannisters. Even the Nymeros-Martell are pretty old, a thousand years is a lot of time...

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    I'm wondering if Marvel is looking at making another time jump for the "proper" start of Phase 4. Tom Holand is 23, playing a 16/17 year old. They can easily zip him forward 5 years and have him play an early 20s Peter Parker, and pretty much everyone else in the MCU can be skipped forward 5 years without missing a beat. And they can use the Disney+ TV shows to fill in the 5-year gap, esp with Falcon and Winter Soldier. The other "young'un" is Shuri, and Laetitia Wright is 26, and of undetermined age in the MCU at the moment, but I would have pegged her to be early 20s in the movies. So she can be skipped forward 5 years. Then there's Tony and Pepper's daughter, who can be aged up and almost ready to enter the hero fray with a 5-year jump, and also Hawkeye's daugher who will be well ready to take up duties as a hero, so be the new Female companion to Hawkeye, with a 5-year time jump.
  13. Another example of a great show that really only needed to be a season or two, but us Americans just love dragging out shows for that $$$. Also, I did not know that HoC was originally a British show. Ya'll should try harder to get things played over here. We clearly love remaking your content, just with poorer outcomes.
  14. Ok let's not expand in the books. I had read them a long time ago and is very hard to recall details.

    Arya the Explorer

    I still find it funny how in this shows universe the Faceless Men just let her go and are fine with Arya using their magic and killing skill to take out anyone she wants.
  16. It would depend on the person. Jon Snow was brought back from the dead, found out he was the true heir to the iron throne, but he didn't turn into a messianic lunatic constantly talking about his destiny, did he?

    West of Westeros: The Voyages of A. Stark

    I think Lady Stoneheart will play a crucial role in this aspect of Arya's arc. It'll be horrific enough for Arya to pause and take time to reflect. Reuniting with Sansa, Bran, Jon and maybe Rickon will (especially Sansa and Jon) also either serve to convince Arya to allow the healing process to run its course or Arya will sabotager her healing process because of the pain of it all. And that's operating under the assumption that Arya doesn't develop a love/unhealthy obsession for violence, her own magical powers (and the magical power of others) or both. Another character arc sabotaged by laziness and stupidity. I've never understood how important Lady Stoneheart was until season 7. I now get why George R.R. Martin was so upset that they left out Lady Stoneheart. How many character arcs were ruined with her exclusion? It's at least three (Arya, Jaime and Brienne). And then there is the matter of Littlefinger and Bran coming face-to-face with her. And of course, we can only imagine the sparks that will fly should Sansa, Jon (after he is crowned King), Roose Bolton, Theon and/or Tyrion encounter her.
  18. Lord Varys

    Lynara Stark

    I'd expect her to be a daughter of one of Bennard Stark's three sons, i.e. a first cousin once removed of Cregan's. But that's just conjecture. But I think we can safely say that she is not Bennard's daughter because that would make her more or less a woman of Cregan's own generation, meaning she would have been already married by the time Cregan took his third wife and/or she might no longer be fertile by the time Black Aly Blackwood died. Thus we can safely say she would have been a young woman - a teenager, say, or in her early twenties when she married Cregan. That's also supported by the fact that she produced five children. The chance that Bennard produce another child after Cregan freed him from his dungeons - if that ever happened - is not particularly high in my opinion. If the man got out he was likely forced to take the black. Bennard's sons may have been pardoned eventually, considering that some of them may have been as young or even younger than Cregan himself. Although the fact that they were imprisoned, too, could also imply that they were older at that time.
  19. But the question is not what they would do, but how they would perceive themselves, as ordinary people? Because as @Hodor's Dragon said:

    U.S. Politics: You Didn't Think It Would Be So Easy, Did You?

    I think you'd have a point if eight people were running, but the number is over 20 now and he's among the least qualified candidates. There's just nothing to talk about, and that's before you consider Trump and how much attention he eats up. I said he had a chance the moment his polling jumped from nothing to the teens in the beginning. And I warned people very loudly that he was a terrible match up for someone like Hillary.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Bale is best Bruce Wayne. Prove me wrong.

    Arya the Explorer

    I wasn't referring to either. I mean that Jon and Dany will see him as useful because they will need weapons. Furthermore, him crafting a helmet for himself indicates that he will have a fighting role, which he previewed in Brienne's chapter. Now yes, after that it makes sense that he would be rewarded for his role.
  23. Yeah, US version. I agree it declined since season 2 but the finale really stands out as terrible
