    Rant and Rave Thread

    This is not entirely on topic, but I watch too many youtube reviews / podcasts. The shit people pull out of their ass and the theories they have based on the show and "wouldn't that be COOL!" rivals the best tinfoil this board can produce. Sorry, just listening to someone theorizing about Arya and her faceless powers and I'm sick of people taking that to mean she essentially has super magical, limitless powers and can do anything. In this one podcast, I've already heard that Ned didn't die because Jaqen was in the dungeons and why would a faceless man be anywhere he didn't want to be? (ignore that this doesn't make any narrative let alone logistical sense), Littlefinger hired a faceless man to take his place and he is still alive, and Arya was lurking in the courtyard when Jon arrived, she just had on a different face. They just need to work in how Arya will take Jaime's face and kill Cersei and we've got a full house, folks! I know we all know this, but the show really mishandled the whole House of Black and White and their skills, face magic, ethos, affordability, etc. Fuckin' show.

    Rant and Rave Thread

    ^ Yes, D&D's fixation on narrowing the whole tale down to a lovey-dovey will-they-won't-they plot has rendered too many key characters totally superfluous now. Not only is Theon pointless, but I can't see what Varys is for, or even Tyrion.

    My Arya/Jon Endgame Theory

    Intriguing theory, but if it's true it would make Stannis Azor Ahai and I'm not sure I'm on board with that.

    What kind of weapon will Gendry make for Arya?

    Oh, that's a GREAT spot, sweetsunray. A detail I'd long forgotten, but does seem to be the key. It's just the sort of weapon to be used in Syrio's Waterdance.

    Samwell Tarly stole the spotlight.

    I'm aghast at how many posters here are completely oblivious to dynamic characters. Is literary criticism even taught these days?

    House Glover

    The Bolton's had always been House #2 in the North, behind the Starks for thousands of years. For thousands of years they'd been waiting for the opportunity, and took it.

    Sansa's desire to be Queen

    She never wanted to play the game of thrones (there are book quotes to support it). Littlefinger was plotting to crown her queen, but she just wanted to go home. She probably does want credit occasionally for her efforts. She is outspoken around Jon and its great because he needs someone to challenge him. "Do you want to lead one day? Then learn how to follow" She's doing that well so far, but she can't stand Dany and refuses to follow her. Which is fine because she's followed long enough.

    Dorne? Highgarden? Riverlands?

    Ha ha, even Ed Sheerin got that!

    the honeyed locusts...

    Honestly my main thoughts from this is the mathematical conversion in the first half of your post... If 20 stone=280 pounds that mean that... At 40 stone, The mountain weighs in at 560 pounds... Holy fuck

    Dorne? Highgarden? Riverlands?

    Unfortunately, in the show lately, people just teleport around the continent, and huge chunks of it simply disappear as D&D abandon any semblance of logistics or plot logic. I don't think we'll see many key regions again - just Winterfell, KL and maybe Dragonstone. Your Edmures and whoever's left will have 'red-shirt' cameos if they appear at all.

    Well, even in a "just war" like WWII, generals had to be a bit callous about troops. I never said Jon would like the idea. I'm just anticipating hard choices.

    It's pretty amusing to see Evita simply referred to as Don't Cry For Me Argentina. Off topic, but always thought Madonna was underrated as an actress. She was very good in Evita and I had a crush on her character in League Of Their Own as a kid.

    Dorne? Highgarden? Riverlands?

    Well, I think that's precisely the point. Be careful what you wish for. Cercei has dreamed of total power, sitting on the Iron Throne. To get that, she's killed everyone; there's no one and nothing to rule over. "When you play the game of thrones," she told Ned, "You win or you die." What she failed to see is that playing by her rules, you win nothing. Against the existentialist threat of the White Walkers, her options are nothing or nothing. Her whole impulse, for which she lost her children and everything, has turned out to be utterly futile.

    Sansa's desire to be Queen

    Correct, three completely different scenarios. The wights are simply dead bodies reanimated by magic, no brain, no organs, no blood pumping through their veins. The Mountain was saved from the brink of death by science, not brought back from the dead. He was evil before and is evil still. Jon was brought back to life by a priestess through the power of a god. Sansa wants power over her own life and power to protects those she loves. How many times since she's been back at WF has she talked about being "home"? She wants to be safe, and a queen (or king) is never truly safe. No, I don't think she wants to be queen anymore.

    I have a feeling Dany expected the North to feed her armies, which is so messed up when she burned the food she sought to claim. She makes the North starve to support her own bad decisions. The North isnt exactly the Vale or the Reach. They're poor.

    Who's the worst human being, Tywin Lannister or Roose Bolton

    Nailed it Haha for real though, both are terrible, but no worse or better than Jon Arryn or Hoster Tully, a couple of "good guy" patriarchs, so it's all relative I think Edit: actually, of the four I mentioned, by modern standards, Tully is far and away the worst, the other 3 were ruthless to thier enemies, Hoster forcibly aborted his own grandchild to save face.

    Thoughts on Bran’s character development

    Right. Which suggests even the 3-Eyed Raven didn't have that power. Bran's power is now unprecedented, hence his current 'non-humanness'. By the way, if we're expecting to see zombie Hodor, what about Jojen, the CoTF AND zombie 3-Eyed Raven?

    Neither did Jojojen. But Bran cracked some dude's spine with Hodor's giantlike hands.

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

    Got the book yesterday. Just finished. Wow, did not see the “Zombie Amos” coming. If Teresa ends up with Filip that will be quite the age gap between the characters. Filip would be in his 50s while Teresa isn’t even 20.
