    Best lines of E02

    I liked ‘I wish Father were here’ because very briefly it seemed as though Tyrion wanted Lord Tywin around cos he’d know what to do

    Jorah Mormont is Azor Ahai?

    Not gonna lie, that would be quite a huge "dafuq?"-moment for 99% of the viewers. Sadly I think Jorah ends up dead next episode, so no AA for him.

    Arya

    I think you answered your own question here.

    The Living Undead

    That is not the understanding I have. It it a drastic difference. Jon is back to life, his wounds heal, he lives and can have sex and self control. Wights are just dead moving once more. Completely different in any aspect I can think of. I believe the show makes this so extremely clear, that I wonder whether you toy with me or are indeed serious.

  7. What an absolutely absurd shot to take. It must feel great to have that much confidence in anything.

    [Book Spoilers] R+L=J, A+J=T and other theories on HBO V.4

    It's even more important to point out that we don't know by how much, because we don't have (and are highly unlikely to ever have) any book material to compare against. For example, GRRM may have told them that Theon returns to Winterfell before the Others attack and dies saving Bran in the Godswood. The exact manner will be different, but the general theme won't be different. It doesn't really matter whether Theon is killed by an Other or a Wight for example. The only thing that matters is that somehow he saves Bran.

    King or Queen?

    You misunderstand the succession of primogeniture. Rhaegar was the firstborn. He and his children are first in the order of succession. Even without male primogeniture this would be the case. In modern British monarchy Prince Charles, then Prince William and his children are in succession. Prince Williams daughter is in front of Prince Harry. England has nowadays a gender-neutral primogeniture. If you would apply the modern English rules to Westreros, Jon Snow would be in front of Daenerys, too.

    Sansa and Royce

    Are they? Right, must be short on extras or something.

    And GRRM for the matter (by his own admission he gets frustrated at his fans who care so much about the realism of travel timescales, logistics etc) in the books. The problem is with the show and books we don't know how much time has passed between scenes etc. We know that certain scenes in both mediums are chronologically out of order but we don't know by how much. E.g. Theon made it to Winterfell.

    Sansa and Royce

    Well, Sansa was depicted for six seasons as naive, dumb, wannabe-queen and fell again and again for tricks of Cersei and Baelish. I like the actress, I like the performance, but I don't like the girl. She acted dumb for six seasons. Now we are not shown how smart she is, but just told how smart she has allegedly become. I don't like this style of story-telling. Meanwhile I have to accept it. Sansa is not only told to be smart, but supposed to be smart. OK, fair enough. The first smart Sansa dialogue is in S8E2. Before that, not so much. I would have liked Arya not so say "she is the smartest person" but something along "She grew up, learned the game, is more cunning now". That would fit the reality much better. Positive statements: Sansa has survived a lot of hardship and abuse, she learned everything the hardest possible way. But she learned it eventually. She now understands how the game is played. She finally understood Baelish motives and she sentenced him to death for it. She has a good heart, cares about common people and is shown to apply common sense. She is typical Northern and fights for the North in her way, as woman, with her tongue. The Knight of the Vales are supposed to be there. They mention them shortly. We just don't see them. We will see them fighting in E3 on Brienne's flank.

    Well I've seen it now, I really enjoyed it and thought they did an excellent job of managing to pay off the important points and approached it in a way that made sense but couldnt all be seen coming from a mile off.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    It depends on how far Jon and Dany range every day and in which direction. I think it would be silly if the GC come to Winterfell, especially by foot.

    Because of the discussion about it I decided to watch Cowboy Bepop. Poor guys. 3 episodes in and they haven't collected a single bounty yet. How do they stay in business?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Even if Tyrion is a secret Targ, then the title still makes no sense comparative to where it was initially meant to sit within the series. And using that logic AFFC should have focused on Bran and the Wall, but it didn't. The book titles no longer bear any relation to the content within.

    Will we see any familiar faces amongst the undead?

    In the crypts, I'd very much expect Rickon to make an appearance :-)

    Jon faction VS Daenerys faction

    Excepting the inhabitants of King's Landing, I don't know why anyone would care who sits on the iron throne. In Mideval times, swearing fealty meant forfeitting a portion of your income in taxes and pledging the support of your army if the king should need it. In return the king would have a duty to ensure your protection from foreign invaders. In the GOT universe it seems to mean you can keep your lands, your income and your sovereinty so long as you kneel down every time the king farts. In the real world, wars aren't fought over trivial gestures of respect or submission. In the real world if Aegon the Conqueror had told Argilac the Arrogant that he could either be burned at the stake and beheaded or keep his lands, income, and freedom if he would do the service of inflating the Targarian's ego by bowing down before him... and in response Argilac said, "I would rather rot in hell than bend my knee to the likes of you," before commanding his knights to go charging into battle against fire breathing dragons (Ha), his knights would have turned their swords against their arrogant king in a heart beat... and rightly so. Don't get me wrong, other than that I love the show but the least realistic thing about it is the culture of megalomania and toxic pride that seems to motivate almost every character.

    Aussie Thread: Democracy Sausage

    There's a pretty large difference between simply being a member of a group associated with questionable views and repeatedly expressing those views on a very public platform. You're also ignoring that athletes, and especially footballers, in this country have rightly or wrongly been given the status of role models. Pushing his opinions in this fashion has a material impact on children that you can't just hand wave away.

    Aussie Thread: Democracy Sausage

    I don’t know what the Australian law says on the matter, but in the UK anti-discrimination law covers pre, post and during employment. In which case you’d probably want to argue that the comments dissuade a particular class of persons from that team because the employer is allowing an environment which does not accept them or intimidates them. as i say, i don’t know if this applies to your laws too

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

    Good theories there regarding the nonlocal communication as being key factors. So Amos knowing the other aliens want to kill them is sort of hardwired information as opposed to him being told by the network? Does this make duarte more in line with protomolecule miller? Although miller was much more influenced by the protomolecule possibly because there was no human meddling in the takeover.

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    Trouble with the 20 film option for ASOIAF would be that the first film would end with DeadNed, without anywhere near as much investment in other characters. The franchise would probably have died the death at that point. By splitting things up for films, we wouldn't have seen Jon since around the 45 minute mark, and no-one else at the wall, no Dany, no Dragons... Better writers would be a huge bonus though, as would a bigger SFX budget. ETA, you could get around that by finishing earlier, with Bob's death; or with good writers, making it the story of the Lannister's being essentially the good guys of their own story, and seen as villains from the other aspects... Woukdneed REALLY good writers to carry that off though.
