    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    We should've known they'd muck everything up back in season 2 when they completely bungled Cat's motivations for freeing Jaimie.

    In ASOIAF world a family is bound to promises their Head made at a time. See Tywin Lannister deal's, see debt's of the IT to the Iron Bank, see The last Stark King who knelt befoe Aegon the Conqueror and thus gave up the crown of the North etc. etc.

    The thing is that it was Wyman who promised that. His heir hardly has to keep wyman's promises.... Otherwise a new ruler would never be able to make changes...

    Of course. Wyman's death wouldn't change anything because his entrusted men (Wylis & Marlon Manderly, Glover) are of course informed about this promise. And they will honour it.

    Jaime is Destined to be Horribly Disfigured.

    In my opinion, zealotry of any type is stupid. Plus, I could add being part of cersei's walk of atonement was stupid. No he is responsible for his own, e.g. participating in the walk of atonement. He participated. Hence it matters. That's why Lancel is stupid, he doesn't see the irony in cersei being paraded naked and him being her protector for the same crime. At least Jaime acknowledges his mistakes. Also, why is it wrong for cheating to be a deal breaker? My point is no one should be humilated that way. I was pointing out the inequities of punishment between men and women for the same crime. I have no idea how this is relevant, but I honestly wouldn't care what lancel does. Again I am pointing out here that for the same crime, Cersei is paraded naked, lancel is entrusted with conducting the walk of atonement. Women being humiliated, men not. Unequal punishment for the same crime. Lancel is too stupid to be responsible for anything. The point I was making is that my critique isn't of one single character, but of the system that allows such disparate treatment of men and women. A system that exists even today. Oh the people who pass the judgement, aka high sparrow are definitely wrong . But people like lancel who benefit from the sentence and do not see the irony there, also bear responsibility for upholding the unequal system.

    Football: foreVAR confused

    Newcastle are not good, and not bad, I hate that. I have no interest in mid table obscurity, i'd rather be in a relegation battle.

    If Wyman is dead will the manderleys really join Stanis? I think Jon has to discover so many things... Stuff about the AA legend, stuff about the others, stuff about warging, robbs will...

    Jaime is Destined to be Horribly Disfigured.

    I just said I'm not justifying all his decisions. Isn't wanting to save people from burning at least one single noble motive? Also, if cersei's cheating is a deal breaker for jaime, why is that wrong? Again, why is cheating being a deal breaker wrong? He does struggle with his oaths. It's not a whim. why would he need to hide behind his oaths? He had an army that could break the siege. Again,threatening is not the same as killing. ALSo, selmy was far from perfect, but he wasn't shitty.

    Synonym for marksman or horseman that starts with 'm'

    The Florida M people were Florida's equivalent to the Texas rangers. Before, during, and after the civil war Florida sent their men throughout the country to enforce Florida law. This is the issue the Democrats cared about. They (McClellan) were willing to let the south go if they would agree to keep those damn Florida law enforcement people out of the Union. Also, they had looked at Harvard research, and were going to develop a nuclear weapon to destroy the Whitehouse if the south didn't comply, thus ending heaven.

    An unpopular Game of Thrones opinion

    Season 1 was very good, then over the next 5 Seasons it slowly declined; with the Batlle of Bastards being the first major down for me (so stupid!). Then characters like Varys and Tyrion and Littlefinger were destroyed /turned into something laughable.

    In my opinion, it would substantially more fair Unsworth becomes a billionaire out of suing Musk for telling the world the guy’s a pedophile than say, inheriting billions from your wealthy parents/grandparents. Unsworth would have suffered to get the billions.

    I always think that people get too stuck on the 7 days of battle. For exemple, a siege can take several days and people fight in every day… I am no master of warfare, but there must be war strategys that make 2 groups fight several days instead of a big decive battle... In regards to the time. Theon I happens 1 day after the last cold count (so day 1). During this day we know stannis intends to kill theon and doesn t look like he actually expects a battle to happen at any moment… Besides the fact that some people riding must be much faster than an army that has to march and bring food suplies… So the battle will happen on day 2 at the earliest (there is no garantee that the bad weather won t delay the freys and make them arriver even later)... So they can only march out of the CV on day 3 and it will take them probably more than 3 days of march (because of the bad weather). This means that at the earliest they will arrive on day 6 or 7 after the last cold count. Whatever math we do here with the cold and the battles stannis is almost garanteed to loose more than 300 men. This leaves him virtually with no Southern army... Another important thing to take into acount is that wyman that because of his deal with davos could be stannis ally will probably be out of action... Even if won the battle of winterfell he would be a kind without power surrounded by people that not like him. To me having stannis conquering winterfell looks like a pointless plot… It leads nowhere... I never disagreed that jon would be an important asset to stannis. I just completly disagree that stannis wrote the PL with the objective of bringing jon to winterfell. To me it makes zero sense because I can t see how stannis could logically expect that the PL would make jon renounce his vows, join him, be accepted by the other lords, not put stannis familly in danger, not put the NW in chaos and several other problems… But that is a discussion for another topic.

    Azor Ahai's monster sounds like a volcano

    The black blood of demons seems like it might be oil and be related to oily blackstone/bloodstone. Which might suggest Valyria's current state might not be too different from a massive eternally burning oil field. I've always found this line to be pretty ominous.

    I would say we need to think of this from the writers point of view, as in GRRM. Asha and Jon both note the writing is a huge spiky hand. The huge spiky hand is not present in the pink letter. This is a pretty standard clue in mystery writing. Conspicuous by its absence. As far as Jon goes, some will assume does not mentioned because he recognizes it, as you mentioned. But GRRM decides what goes on the page, not Jon. If GRRM wanted to confirm to the reader the letter really is from Ramsay then he would have used the tag, huge spiky hand, to confirm it and prevent the readers chasing off on a mystery that doesn't exist. It is a mystery and it is meant to be one and he left the term out as a clue. I'm glad you remember. payday is coming for one of us.

    Football: foreVAR confused

    Perhaps seeing how Flores has fared going back to Watford will put your board off from going back to Moyes. I imagine Big Dunc will be able to terrify the players into playing better for a bit, so you should be okay while the search for a more suitable replacement proceeds.

    Did the Vale hate the Targaryens ?

    In the Books, Yohn Royce's kin were killed by Aerys. So im guessing there was some hate.
