    Logistics get overlooked to a remarkable degree in films and TV series that depict warfare. In reality, get the logistics right, and you're probably halfway towards winning, while get them wrong, and you're almost certain to lose. I don't see how Winterfell could come close to supplying more than 10,000 soldiers at the very maximum. That would be about 10 tons of food per day, for the soldiers, plus several tons for the horses. That's why it was very unusual for any one army in pre-industrial times to number more than 20,000 - more than that number just couldn't be fed, unless they were fighting very close to home, or had unusually abundant food supplies.

    But..their interpretation of the accords doesn't show up til long after the movie came out.

    Creatively it made sense to us, because we wanted it to happen.

    Reading all of this, I actually see that none of us can properly analyze Sansa's character or her motivations because it is all lost in translation. Between Miss Turner's desire to keep the hype on, script that inorganically created "Gandalfian" moments and writers telling us one thing and showing another, it is impossible to come to any sort of conclusion. Is Sansa power-hungry? No. I don't think that is the case. But, does she sometimes mirror Cersei for no apparent reason? I can understand that argument. Is Sansa smart? Yes. But, is she "the smartest" cookie in the jar? No. Are we really to believe that Sansa and Arya took down LF on their own? The last 3 seasons have been so inconsistent that practically you can't say anything about Sansa and not having a scene (or more) to contradict it. For some reason, I have chosen that this Sansa is the extension of Martin's Sansa. And I put her actions in the context of who she is, or what road she is taking in the books. I know it may be absurd, but I do that . It works for me. I may be completely wrong, but then again, in this debate, we are all wrong.

    It's funny how the person put those quotes up but not the one that really matters. Because that quote won't fit the Sansa hate narrative. What Sophie said first was that she has no idea why, the writers didn't tell her. So anything else she said is just guessing. And this is confirmed over and over with other actors. No one ever tells them about why their characters do what they do, what motivates them etc.. Just ask the guy who played Stannis. The reason for Sansa not telling Jon has NOTHING to do with Sansa or her character. It was all about the plot, in this case D&D copying Lord of the Rings. Plot is the reason, not character. As the showrunners have confirmed that this a plot driven show, stop analyzing the damn characters. There are no characters. It's all about the plot.

    In order for that little scheme to work, everyone would have be a moron. They would have to be so moronic as not to comprehend the danger that Sandra's stunt put Jon's Army in. In order for Sandra to think it would work, she would have to assume that everyone was that big of an idiot. Now realistically what she did was dumb. But, I have my doubts that D&D meant to us to see it as a very dumb stunt. And even if they didn't one wonders how such a person goes from doing something very stupid like that to be the smartest person in the world. Might make more sense if Sansa were actually queen in the North. But she isn't. Also, is it realistic for there to be a degree of mistrust between the Starks and Targyarens, at least for a short while? I think so. Ned had to go to a lot of trouble to get rid of that knucklehead Aerys.

    Danny doesn't want to.. she is amongst her people sansa was second fiddle to Jon and now she is third fiddle with the new power couple

    NBA 2019 - Now the Joy in My World is in Zion

    This is a really fun and testy 76ers-Nets game. Butler just got ejected after pushing wild man Dudley(who also got ejected), who initially shoved Embiid for a hard foul. It’s been building all game and finally boiled over. Good trade-off for Nets but Embiid looks rejuvenated after the dust finally settled. Ice cold Russell with some answers though.

    Except that this makes no sense, timeline wise. Dany arrived the same day Ned Umber left WF to get to last Hearth. Tormund's and Edd's groups make it to Last Hearth when Ned Umber is already dead. You don't travel in a day to Last Hearth, especially in winter. The travel to and from Last Hearth should encompass weeks, not days. And Dany doesn't? LOL. Btw who has threatened whom over not having their boots licked? Pretty sure that was Dany who wasn't even subtle in her death threats. Or maybe we watched different episodes. Do you even understand young Sansa's dreams of being Queen? It wasn't about power. It was about being a good wife, bearing children and taking care of the house hold and what not. How is that in any way related to things now? And guess what. Titles in their society are there for a reason. Jesus Christ, Jon himself said last Season that the North won't accept a southern ruler. The Lords already were rumbling about Jon's absence and non-communication but Sansa was keeping them together and the Vale Lords on board after LF death's. Jon is going on and on about a unified stand, well guess what genius, you bending the knee shot that all to hell. And he KNEW it, he said they won't accept her before any knee bending took place. So why bend the knee then, especially if it was not a requirement of Dany's help and knowing it will not go over well in the North? I wish people would stop looking at this as Dany vs Sansa because the real idiot is actually Jon, D&D just as usual throw the women under the bus for this emo, boring snowflake. He goes on and on about unification but doesn't seem to understand in the slightest what society they live in, that certain things do matter (like titles/ranks), especially in a situation like the current one where ranks and delegation is the only way to ensure a unified stand.

    The Night King and King's Landing

    I think the dagger is going to be very important by the end of the story. When Sam is trying to find information to stop the Night King at the Citadel he is looking in a book that has an illustration of the dagger in it. And, after receiving the dagger from Baelish, Bran examines if and asks Petyr if who knew who the dagger belonged too. I got the hint that Bran knows the dagger's history and there's more to it than the War of the Five Kings. I 'm thinking it may have belonged to Aegon the Conqueror originally.

    What will the last scene of game of thrones season 8 contain?

    The closing scene will be mirror the opening scene, but focusing on the surviving Stark children. We will see Bran's dream of spring only after he has sent into the past the massive, collective memories of these final battles to seed the ancient legends and complete the cycle. There will be no Iron Throne nor anything else left that the Targaryens brought to Westeros.The single kingdom that Aegon the Conqueror created three hundred years ago will be no more, never to be reformed. The wheel has been broken. Those most responsible for saving the world will never be themselves again, permanently changed by their sacrifices and loss. Each city and region will determine its own future coordinated by a permanent great council who elects its own rotating executive director, the first of whom shall be Davos. Any great house that survives will do so only through the female line or a bastard child, never a legitimate eldest male. The reason the single Targaryen realm will be no more because the true purpose behind Daenys the Dreamer's prophetic vision to save a single Valyrian house from the Doom will have been fulfilled: thanks to the last of the dragonlords of old, the Fimbulwinter threat to the entire world will have been somehow banished and whatever had been causing the unnatural seasons will have mended.

    Just watched ant-man and the wasp and the sokovia accords are given a fair bit of screentime. Enjoyed the film more than i was expecting. It seemed a lot more comfortable as a comedy with fun action and some genuine laughs. Although the random rules for conservation of mass really irked me. They never seemed to stick to consistent rules. The closest they managed was that mass seemed to change with size so smaller things were lighter and bigger things were heavier. But even then there'd be times where small wasp or ant-man maintained regular strength. The fights between ghost and wasp were really interesting and well choreographed. I also liked the lousy agent and walton goggins is always welcome even if just playing comic relief villain. I can also see why some think time-travel could be at play in endgame now. I wonder if fox owned the microverse as a FF thing? Just seemed microverse is cooler than quantum realm. Also waa really hoping for a bit more in what Janet was doing all that time. Her outfit implied she'd maybe being battling the denizens of the microverse. Maybe they can disclose it once they have the FF rights back

    She's might just be stupid enough to think that it actually will. That's why she is unapologetic in pointing out to Arya that Jon had failed, and it was her Knights that saved not only Winterfell, but Jon and his army as well. Knowing full well that If she had told Jon, his army never would have been in the dire situation they were in. That also probably plays a factor in why she hates Dany, if Dany's army saves the North from a threat as dangerous as the White Walkers, the North will not only see Dany as their savior, but will also be more welcoming of her as their queen, further diminishing Sansa's standing.

    TTTNE 475 - for the Honour of Greyskull!

    What’s a place that you visited and liked? joke aside, yeah Venice does smell of canals, but oh well. It’s worth it. Roughly the same. I think 1980 is the line I would draw for us, anything between 1980 and 2010ish is complete utter trash. Around 2010 things started picking up and artists seem to have found their feet in terms of topics and style. They have maxed out the world war and socialism topic by 1980 and then jumped on the fourth class Hollywood movie remakes bandwagon as the whole... whatever is that process called? Democratic transformation(?) unfolded. Today they seem to be making movies again that are worth making which is a beautiful thing. I’m not too too familiar with Hungarian movie history, so I’m not the best person to form an opinion on it, but for me it’s the 60s that stand out. All my favorite “classic” movies are from the 1960s.
  16. Well done Newcastle against an opponent in good form. Definitely safe now. I think Ward-Prowse should have been sent off for his professional foul but thankfully the ref’s generosity/cowardice didn’t change the outcome.

    Even if she just suspected they were in the general area, she should have relayed that information to Jon, realistically speaking.

    It might jive with the character of Sandra. But, if Sandra thought that hiding relevant, vital, and pertinent information about the tactical situation from an army commander would get her "credit" then she was delusional. And yet, we are told she is the smartest person in the world. So what in the hell is up with this? Hard to tell.

    Maybe Sansa did not know for certain that the Vale would aid them?
  20. D-Shiznit

    dany and sansa

    Well it jives with her character though, in S7 she tells Arya that she should be on her knees thanking her for single handedly saving Winterfell via the Knights of the Vale. She minimizes the contributions of Jon, even though a big bulk of their Army were Freefolk who only came for him, not to mention Wun Wun, who saved them from a long siege.
  21. StoneColdJorahMormont

    Yup she is basically maergery at this point without the tact or skills to hide her true ambition
  22. OldGimletEye

    To be honest, I take everything that comes out of Ms. Turner's mouth with a grain of salt.
  23. D-Shiznit

    Well this is what Sophie said about Sansa hiding the Knights of the Vale: At San Diego Comic-Con, the actress who plays her, Sophie Turner, shared her thoughts on the matter. "Sansa didn't tell Jon because she wanted all the credit and it was a more dramatic moment when they showed up. "I'm not sure [Sansa] believes Jon is capable of running Winterfell and the North," Turner told fans at the panel. "I think she thinks he doesn't have the intellect, the knowledge, the experience that she has. And I concur."
  24. Brightstar_

    Redemption characters, do they need to die?

    For some reason I'm fairly certain the show will make him choose not to betray Jaime or Tyrion and that will end up costing him his life. I don't dislike this idea either, it's pretty fitting GOT stuff, being honourable gets you killed and whatnot.
  25. OldGimletEye

    dany and sansa

    Well that wasn't a very slick move by Sandra. But, then again, Dany's retort wasn't exactly helpful either.
  26. MinscS2

    dany and sansa

    Yeah, the whole "What do dragons eat anyway" and the way the question was delivered could've been something straight out of Cersei's "script". Sansa/Sophie basically did her best Cersei-impression.
