    Dany Fleeing After Jon Reveal

    I don't think she will leave-leave per say, she might need some time for herself though. Dany should be torn upon hearing the news: Obviously surprised, but both agitated and elated. Agitated because her entire arc, the very thing that has defined her for so long, is being the last Targaryen and reclaming what she perceives as hers. Out of nowhere comes Jon, who technically is ahead of her in the line of succession which can ruin everything. (The fact that Jon doesn't have the power/military might necessary to enforce his claim is for a different topic.) Basically she will feel that, if not her entire life, than a big part of it, has been a lie - ironically the same way Jon will feel now after hearing the news about his parentage. Then on the flipside she should be elated about it. While this is more of a book-thing than show-thing, despite all her ruling, conquering and I'm-the-queen:ing, what Daenerys wants deep down is a family and a home (She even mentions this in S1 afaik to Jorah - "I pray for home too"). This is something she can never have, being the last Targaryen and not being able to have children on her own. We always miss what we don't have. Then out of no where comes Aegon Targaryen, suddenly she has blood-relative, she's not alone. Irony of fate that the same man also happens to be her current love interest. Even if Daenerys and Jon/Aegon end up not having any children, she knows that the Targaryen line won't end with her. Aegon/Jon will be able to live on and get children, and so the Targaryen line will continue.

    Rickon is destined to be new Lord of Winterfell

    That seems to be what's happening, yes. He's setting up a situation where Sansa is Lady of Harrenhal. It's not clear how much, if anything, he knows about the mythic implications of his plans.

    Really capable people who can turn the tide of history in new directions of their choosing, not Hydra's, were put on the kill list. So Strange becoming a wiZARD prooves the algorithm was right to try and nip these people in the bud. Because Strange did it by using his (algorithm-identifiable) extreme drive and ability to manipulate the resources of the world with exquisite skill to create even "impossible" outcomes he desires. So it makes sense he's on the list. It makes less sense he'd be an example Sitwell chose. Unless he's famous like Dr. Phil or something for pulling off some high profile surgical saves. Raccoons and us used to stare each other down in the back yard and it was fun because their eyes reflect the flashlight real hard. But then they climbed the cypress tree where our adopted family of squirrels lived. That's when it got personal.
  8. People see all kinds of things in the show that aren't there. They were expecting a whole subplot around "Talisa's" letters, but there was nothing. They were expecting something something something with Arya and the Waif, but nothing. Just like people have seen many, many things in the books that aren't there either, Mance isn't Rhaegar, Euron isn't Daario, so and so and so and so aren't secret Targaryens. What I don't see at all, nor even the attempt, is sexual tension between these two characters. In all probability Jon Snow is going to die anyway, so he won't be alive to marry anyone, let alone his least favorite half sibling/cousin. Forehead kisses are also not sexual, this is why multiple people not sexually attracted to each other are getting and receiving kisses on the forehead. Snow in a show where dozens of people are snowed on, is not sexual either. But, like I said, you've got a few more weeks to indulge in this ship before reality sets in.

    I think the idea was that Hydra’s algorithm sought out potentially problematic people once they revealed themselves to the world. So maybe they scanned Steven Strange and determined he might take issue with Hydra and led a rebellion or something. He doesn’t have to become a wizard to be a problem for Hydra. Granted, it’s a bit strange that he was the second name on Sitwell’s mind when he explained it.

    It's set that close to TFA? I didn't realize. I thought it had more lead time into it to help explain away the mess of a story JJ concocted for Episode VII...

    Dany Fleeing After Jon Reveal

    HI all got a feeling dany is going to leave on drogon once Jon reveals the news of his parent. She is totally in love with him and this is going to be devastating for her. Dany and drogon could give the north the edge in battle and the showrunners might not want this. I have a feeling she is going to leave and this is so sad. any thoughts? I mean this also means leaving her advisors and troops. how smug will the north feel then. I was hoping she would win over the north but I am not so sure now

    "Glares suspiciously at Corvinus's Avatar" Some raccoons broke into my trash last night and made a mess of things. YOU wouldn't know anything about that, would you?
  16. None of these really apply to the unique situation where they feel they have to suppress their feelings because they're related. It would have to be subtext, which is what I'm pointing out.

    Star Wars Thread: Don't Get Cocky

    The problem is definitely the characters; Kaz would be the comic relief in any other show, so his comic relief sidekick is verging on Jar Jar level irritating. And it seems aimed at a younger audience than Rebels or Clone Wars. The other supporting characters are more interesting, but don't get all that much screentime. The plot of the season as a whole is decent enough,
  18. Seriously? There is ZERO sexual tension in this scene… You might watch a few films like Eyes Wide Shut, Match Point, The Secret of Brokeback Mountain, Fifty Shades, etc. to learn about sexual tension on screen…

    Rant and Rave Thread

    Also, the actors in the background, and I'm not talking about extras, often have blank stares. They speak their lines, then they space out, no longer part of the scene. That's more the director's fault, probably, but it would be nice if the ones with experience showed they were still engaged.

    @Error-504 Just a heads up. Krishtotter compared Daenerys to, among others, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Zedong in a different thread. When Called out on it, he instead quoted half an essay on why Daenerys is like Robespierre. Don't bother. Some people will never see eye to eye, so it's best to just move on.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    If it's a new game that I'm into, I don't stop playing until I beat it, or it kicks my butt. If I'm re-playing games, there's the possibility I'll alternate between two.

    More like celebrated surgeon with genius IQ, Tony Stark like persona, you get the math (pun intended)...
  23. I reject Casterly Rock and Storms End because given enough dragon fire they'd melt and cook everyone inside, just like Harrenhall. Castamere would be ideal if it wasn't for this; Tywin filled it with water so a dragon could technically fill it with molten rock. Greywater Watch could make it because its camouflaged, sits in water and can be moved if needed so they'd have the best chances so long as the dragon rider doesn't set the whole Neck ablaze.

    Rickon is destined to be new Lord of Winterfell

    If Skagosi are supposed to be the bannermen of the Starks, perhaps ol' Rick and Shag are already being looked after good and proper and he might not be the frothing lunatic we think/hope he has become.

    I don't recall which season of AoS it was, it may have been season 2 finale, when the Agents find Strucker's base, and the movie opens up with the Avengers attacking said base. We also see Coulson had been working on a secret project to restore the helicarrier, and when Fury shows up in it, he said he had it restored with the help of some old friends. So I'd say there was a bit of a two-way going on here, and yes the last time the movies acknowledged the TV verse.
