  1. Past hour
  2. Hey! Thanks for the update! So spoilers abound now! I liked everything about Holy Sister. The flash back/forward I thought worked really well and I usually don’t like that trope. Some really strong scenes in there and good exits for our main supporting cast.

    Order of deaths to come.

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones, received a big raise for the final season of the blockbuster series. According to court documents for a lawsuit involving Coster-Waldau and his former manager, Jill Littman, Coster-Waldau made $1,066,667 per episode for Season 8. The documents confirm Coster-Waldau appears in all six episodes of the final season (previous reports indicated he would only appear in four). https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/film-tv/a22865511/nikolaj-coster-waldau-game-of-thrones-season-8-salary/
  4. It is sung in Arya's chapter at High Hill though without the lyrics. But it's the song gohh requests from Tom as payment. Catelyn refers to the song when at Oldstones on the way to the Twins. And then in the epilogue Tom sings the first 2 lines. It links Arya to Catelyn's fate, not yet knowing what will befall, and of course Catelyn to Arya as she's searching for Arya as LS.
  5. I'm not even finished reading but I have to say.........I think I love you, and I am glad you are back with your episode review/recap. Hopefully, that didn't come off as pushy as Arya might have, LOL Ok, I'm going to finish reading your review/recap now, I'm fairly certain nothing in it will change my feelings.

    International thread 2

    What fucking people are you addressing? If I wanted to push a "woe is Christianity" narrative, I might point out that a huge number of Christians just got murdered. Of the 359 dead so far (and counting), it seems the lion's share were Christian, and were targeted because they were Christian. But yeah. Quibbling about other people's choice of words is trivial. Also making this tragedy about the fact that somebody somewhere on the internet said something trivial, is also trivial. The disparate reactions to this and the Christchurch massacre (on this board and elsewhere) is rather like night and day. But I don't have a single explanation. I'm sure many factors are involved.

    White walkers vs nuclear bomb

    Well, obsidian destroys them, so their magical body compositions clearly interact differently with various materials.

    Favorite new character introduced in Fire and Blood?

    @Adam Yozza God your right, Peake was the worst. I wish he had gotten his just deserts. Aemond One Eyed was a prick to. I don't remember hearing about Tyland Lannister previously but he was a great Hand. I usually have a good memory for the things I read but I haven't read the books in a while now. I Forgot to mention Elissa. The Hightower brothers story on their expedition was damn cool. @Vaith & @James Steller- excellent points on the northmen. And yes, Aegon III definitely counts, as before he was more of a name with a blank face. This book provided the personality and colors we previously lacked. I never heard about that bit with the northern raiders being cut. Anything specific you guys would want explained/covered in the proposed 2nd volume? More on Roberts and Greyjoys Rebellion, perhaps? Although the Mad Kings reign has been covered in some detail already.

    Damn it, I had forgot that. Deliberately? Because it’s too painful to see what the show’s turned Brienne Judge Dredd of Tarth into?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    If it happens, it would have to be something like: 1- Army of the dead arrived, north. 2- NK is doing some reconnaissance and spots the GC coming further down south. 3- NK pulls his troops back, and WF are all confused (or they just wait). 4- GC arrives south, where WF is less defended. BUT, it means the GC are stupid and somehow think they had to attack rather than do what Cersei had said which was to let the monsters fight each other while she sits back and has it easy. That being said, Bronn has been tasked to kill Jaime and Tyrion... Could be to meet them along the way if they flee south, which I think would make a lot more sense: the dead coming down north, the GC south waiting for people to come down from the north. edit: Also we saw no GC bodies in the corpse-pile leaks, but we did see everything else including Iron Borns.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Aren't your theory's all slowly biting the dust? About that theory on the Northerners being at war with each other before the Nk arrived, how did that work out?

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Erhm... no, it doesn’t. To bake someone into a pie - and no, I’m not writing up a recipe! - you have to kill them first. So, you kill them, then chop them up (or mince them?), then have your cook make a pie. That’s cold, unforgiving revenge. Revenge for the RW. And well deserved, too. I call it a fist-pumping moment, like Dany incinerating the slaver who wanted Drogon, and Jon shortening Janos Slynt by a head. Ramsay though... that’s a completely different thing. And for the record, I know seeking revenge is wrong, and it only feeds into the cycle of violence, etc etc etc. But in-universe... it’s a fact of life. And again, what Ramsay does - and especially on the show - is altogether different. Ramsay is a psycho, a sadist, and the cherry on top, he’s not the sharpest tool in the box. But imo there’s no way to even think about comparing Frey pies w/ Kyra, Jeyne, and all the countless victims of Ramsay’s “game”.

    TIAMAT'S WRATH - Book 8 of Expanse (SPOILERS)

    I'm of the mind Duarte is completely brain dead. They made a lot of Warhammer 40K allusions with the Laconians. The Laconians setting up Duarte as a figurehead while he's permanently out of it fits with them perfectly.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Other than her breaking her vow, I had big problem with that scene because Judge Dredd of Tarth tried to call that justice. It might have been understandable revenge, but when she tried to act like that was justice, I had a problem with that. And that's why I call her Judge Dredd. At minimum, I'm not sure why that character, who isn't Brienne really, would think they could go into the North like that and do a summary execution, without at least consulting of with Sandra about it, who was the head of House Stark. At least if she wanted to do justice.
  15. Lady Winter Rose

    Pole did Ramsay remove theon's junk?

    I believe he left all thing there but skin.
  16. Its a good theory and one I wouldn't mind being true. It makes a lot of sense in terms of ending the show. They have a big battle when Jon and co win in winterfell but the NK doesn't show, Jons army takes a beating to win and they are left wondering whats happened to the NK and if they've really won. They show Winterfell in ruins, parts of an army standing in the carnage then we pan down to KL, its warm, Cersei and Euron are looking smug as The Golden Army are standing in the courts looking unstoppable when Viscerion and the NK come over and wipe a chunk of them out with ice fire. The Wights attack and its carnage in KL, the main characters retreat and escape and the last scene is NK taking the Iron Throne. AotD being destroyed in one episode after seven series of build doesn't really do them justice. This would be a major victory for the NK if they did this and set up a return bout in episode 5 or 6 where we can get the final slug out. AotD look unstoppable having been victorious and only opposing them are our battered heroes with the remnants of the army from battle 1. Gives plenty time to sow up the characters arcs with each other ready for the final battle. Show hasn't exactly went in much on the whole AA/Lightbringer theory so dunno if that's gonna come to fruition but it would make more sense if the NK was standing from a victorious position and the human faction were looking at it from the depths of defeat with a miracle needed to turn things around.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    One question though: The team puts the stones back into their proper timelines once done with them, to prevent massive changes to the whole MCU universe timeline. But Loki escapes with the Tesseract in the 'new' version of the NY battle aftermath. So does that still happen? I assume yes, because that would create a foundation for a Loki TV series that takes place concurrently with the Phase 1 / 2 / 3 movies.

    internet threads have their own generic rules, and derailment is likely the first one. that said, this thread lacks rails ab initio.

    I need a new special research. Or a new generation of pokemon released. The old dex is started to fill out. Mostly evolves and raids left. Have not seen anything new in the wild for quite some time.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    I don’t remember either, but I believe they kept it. But it doesn’t really change anything (for me). If book Brienne has Sansa in her sight, and a defeated and wounded Stannis sitting near a tree (?), she’s never ever in a million years going to leave her watch to go seek revenge on a defeated man... Brienne is the truest knight in the story, same as her acenestor Dunk. And same as great-grandpa (?) Dunk, not actually a knight. It’s beautiful, and the show mucked it up. As usual...
