    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Cooking someone into a pie takes a whole new level of sadism up there with Ramsay. What's the difference between that and poisoning someone? Imagine what she would have to do to go through with it.
  3. It's not to stop the WW. It's to prevent the dead from rising as wights.
  4. i have a feeling there will be no throne at the end.
  5. I'm not entirely convinced they've actually read the books, and show only folks won't know the difference. Unfortunately. I know for a fact that most people on this forum could have done a much better job of it.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    BattleTech is launching its Urban Warfare expansion on 4 June. Enjoyed the original game, couldn't get to grips with Flashpoint for some reason. Hoping this is better.
  7. Yeah, I know what it was regarding. I was, like, there. How senile do you think I am? Anyway this shit's gone off the rails. Usually I'd pull some article to bring it back it but right now? Nope, y'all on your own.

    US Politics: It’s Not A Crime If Your Feelings Got Hurt

    Italy is Jamarcus Russell elite. I have over 100 years of evidence.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Character assassination? Arya has been walking the path to the dark side since the beginning. The Ghost of High Heart even calls her "dark heart". She is death anthropomorphized. Killing people with poison while wearing a false face or baking them into a pie...what's the difference? People are equally dead. Although I admit Lord Manderly's way was at least entertaining. The Freys had broken the sacred guest right, and there is no sin more unforgivable in the eyes of the gods.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    GRRM already had someone do the Frey pies in the books, it’s just not Arya. I doubt he’s going to repeat himself. Besides there’s another character in the books (who they skipped in the show) who’s killing Freys. By the time Arya is back in Westeros, I suspect most of the Freys responsible for the Red Wedding will already be dead.
  13. The Maesters want a world without magic--a Planetos version of the Enlightenment and the Age of Reason. That makes humans just as much a threat to the dragons as to the WW. If the dragons figure that out, humanity is quite literally toast. They and the WW would be natural allies.

    Mmmm the argument about how much history si actually in the bible or other holy texts is a loaded and interesting one. Though probably one hell of a derail.

    The forging of Lightbringer

    Some leaks have Beric dying on the battlefield in ep 3. That leaves his wonderful sword available. If Beric dies on a chaotic battlefield, there may be nobody near him to give the sword to but if there is a moment (or the show makes one) we will see who adopts the magic Beric-Light-Up sword.
  16. Correct. Viserion is a wighted fire dragon, not a ice dragon. Ice dragons breathe cold.

    Elimination Game #??: Who Comes Out of GOT S.8 the Best

    Oh wait, that was Summer that died in the caves with the CotF. Brain fart on me. Ghost should probably have been on the list too.

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    I dont tweet so i have an extra 4 hours each day to devote to things like power sitting or waiting for credits to roll. Is anybody else willing to wear an adult diaper to the theater and drink a big gulp and then report the results?

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    The Freys have already been baked into a pie. They took the idea, and admitted to it, from the Northern conspiracy plot line. It's out of character for Arya to even consider such a thing. Screw the show writers for their character assassination of Arya.

    the suggested conclusion is unwarranted on the basis of the highlighted text. you might ask roose about it, as i was quoting him--though i think his classification needs to be read in context and with the understanding that it is elegantly metonymic or enthymematic.
  23. Yeah, but if the NK heads to Kl, with his dragon, the North wins that battle easy. Jon and dany's dragons make quick work of the wights, and then its 100,000 pissed of northerners and dothraki, with dragon glass against 20-30 WW's. Then the night king is forced to fight a battle on two fronts, the Kl forces on one side, and the northerners in hot pursuit on the other.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    The leaks I have read all seem to indicate that A) a part of the AOTD arrives at Winterfell first, then the GC arrives at Winterfell second, and finally the REAL AOTD (the one with the head white walker with the dragon) arrives and takes out the GC. IMO, That is way to convoluted for one episode and I do not believe it. Also, there are so many supposed 'real' leaks on reddit now that what one leak predicts, you can find another denying it.

    Book & Show

    This would have maybe all worked fine, if the following two scenarios were true 1. The series would have had at least 4 to 5 more seasons, 10 episodes each. 2. The series was mainly aimed for book fans, and not a worlwide phenomenon to a massive fanbase. Nr 1. would not work for several reasons. First, the main audience would start to get bored with it, and the show would loose audience after, say, 10 seasons. Even if that weren't the case, a lot of actors would not continue working for that long period. You would have to recast. This leads to more audience stop watching the show and eventually a cancellation. Regarding Nr. 2: Show-only viewers, who are the main target of HBO, can't even remember the names of the characters you have now in the show. They should start caring for fAegon, Ariane, Quentin, Aeron and Victarion? Come on. This is not how you write a decent script for a TV Show. 100 characters with 100 sidequests. That is terrible storytelling in television. In the books, it works just fine. But book and televison are two very different mediums. I think, the biggest problem the series had, is that they included Dorne to beginn with. It was done terribly and no viewer could tell you what the purpose was. Cut that crap out, and focus more on the allready developed storylines and flesh out the main characters more (Bran for example). Regarding Euron Greyjoy, I am honest, I don't know which version I like less: the goofy guy in the show, or the cliché-pirate in the books. I hate them both. Maybe Euron in the books will become more interesting in future books. We'll see.

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

    But But.. Duarte new abilities re cortazars demise is very goth like, the similarities to what is experienced during a consciousness attack is striking, so what do we get from this, has he been somehow coopted by the protomolecule killing aliens, will they use him as a communication device if so? Has there been any instance of the "goths" taking over or controlling protomolecule aliens artifacts in any of the books before? Edited to add that i think Duarte will have a more central role going forward than just as a figure for Elvi to study
