    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    I'm not singling out the UK. I joined a conversation at a point where there was an attempt to absolve the UK of all blame which is quite strange since that's where the Industrial Revolution began. I can see why you don't want to consider the history - after becoming a developed power by pioneering polluting industry, cutting down all the forests and reducing half the population of the world to poverty through war and colonisation, when rising nations aspire to the same standard of living the Uk reached through such means, you want to deny them that. My view is that I'm not comfortable with those levels of hypocrisy, and that there is no way the whole of Asia and Africa can achieve the living standards of the UK on a sustainable planet. The planet can only survive if there is an immediate and drastic reduction in global living standards, and the West should take the lead. Of course, that's not going to happen and things are only going to get worse and worse.

    Jon faction VS Daenerys faction

    I think for these two characters to really be equal, Jon should not be a consort. It diminishes his journey just as much as making her consort diminishes hers. Thats why I think they're written to be foils who oppose each other, two heroes fighting like Hector and Achilles. In this hypothetical, she would lose power as soon as the heir came of age and was crowned. And look how much Cersei loved that.

    [Spoilers] E802 Discussion

    No Kings Landing in this episode, thus no Cersei. I confess to thinking this lack of her delivery via clenched teeth -- never call it good acting! much less acting at all! -- contributed to this viewer's all over satisfaction with this episode.

    Heresy 220 and the nature of magic

    Well, I think they're trying to bring to mind Jenny of Oldstone's association with House Mudd, which was completely annihilated, and Jenny's claim that she was nobility was generally not accepted. She's a tragic character and I think the song is foreshadowing the end of House Stark - on the show, that is. In the Mercy chapter, I believe other characters recognize her young age, but it's exactly her young age that is appealing to Raff. We're meant to be totally disgusted with him as being a pervert along with his history of killing Lommy, which is the reason why Arya had him on her list. Gendry is supposed to be a more honorable version of Robert, but show Gendry didn't question Arya's desire and hopped right into the sack(s) with her - which magically morphed into a bed by the time we see them together on screen again.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    A lot has been said here, the good and the bad (sometimes about the same things with different opinions). I think it's funny how different everyone is. Some hate a part, some love it. I'm glad I'm not in charge of the show. People will tear it apart no matter what you do. Top moment: Sansa and Theon. I'm neither in the " Ihate Sansa" or the "love Sansa" club. But Sophie Turner's acting for this scene was on point, as was Alfie's (Allen's one of the top performing actors in the show, in my opinion). I *felt* something in this scene, and for me, that's enough. I realize Jon's reunion with Bran was awkward, but Jon tried to make it meaningful, but Bran...isn't Bran any more. I get that. Still...wish we could have the Starks get together and share a moment like Sansa and Theon did prior to the battle. Low moment: Greyworm. I just didn't like the scene. Felt weak, and like it was just there so he could die and we could have some sort of relationship closure. Missandei is beautiful, but her character seemed more interesting when she was Danny's adviser and linguist. Her intelligence made her an asset for Team Danny, and gave her a reason to be a semi-strong secondary character on the show. Her relationship with Greyworm...not so much. Sometimes I don't mind it, but sometimes, mostly, I just roll my eyes and wish the screentime could be used elsewhere.

    Order of deaths to come.

    I have no sense whatsoever but I'd like to try a guess Will go: Brienne of Tarth; those directed to the crypts, Theon and all the ironborn (why did they agree to come here at all is a mistery), Pod Might go: Bran (and so to preserve the memory of mankind Sam writes ASoIaF), Misandei, Beric, Jorah (tries Valyrian Steel on the NK but it does not work), Davos, Tyrion Will not: Varys, Hound, Grey Worm, Jaime Will never die on TV (again): Sansa, Sam, Jon There must be one or more scenes where someone dies saving somebody, I do hope it is not Arya but it is hope only.

    The crypts of Winterfell are on the verge of becoming the new 'gardens of intrigue' that the Red Keep's godswood was in seasons 3-4.

    Bran: Who says there's an after? Jamie demise or Bran?

    Dang! that means they are saving Cerscei for the endgame. Do you think the WW will be a factor after ep3?

    I'm just allergic to hypocrites.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Alyass Karstark was shown and mentioned very briefly as being in winterfell. Davos i think points out they used to be enemies of the Starks.

    Jon faction VS Daenerys faction

    For someone who likes handing it out, you don't appear to like it when someone fights back. The first thing we agree on: yes, we're done.
  13. King Jon Snow Stark

    Jon faction VS Daenerys faction

    Queen Regent means she is the ruler. I think she should be Queen Regent like the Queen of England. Jon can be her Consort. Their child will be the heir.

    Faceless Men and Iron Bank

    Yup, no random people would get even within earshot of the Sealord elections. Good shout on the 2 triangles with the shared area. Braavos is very organised, had to be, to keep itself hidden from Valyrians in its early days, then to keep the city healthy and irrigated despite its location on a shot that lagoon. Requires a detail of micromanagement not needed in the feudal overlord system in the 7K

    Arya Losin' It

    The scene was "cute" to me. She's a teenager in the books by then. Many teens were smashing in the books, consummating marriages and all. So Arya was just another of them. Maisie is an adult now. Didnt bother me one bit.
  16. Bradam

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    There were only 2 other wizards, both wearing blue, one went south, the other east, and were never heard of again. In the books Gandolf mentions not behing able to remeber thier names. They were only named (a few differnt names) in other works, which Jackson did not have the rights to use. Tolkien initially said they failed but much later in life recanted that and stated he belived they did do thier parts in keeping Sauron from behing able to gather and real large forces from the men in the far east and south. Ahhh I went on a tangent.. my bad =0

    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    Again, I'm not quite sure why you are looking at Britain to blame here. I think you have closer neighbours who would be a better target.

    We didn’t see the Night King at he end of E02

    I think he flanks the living with his dragon. And just demolishes a large portion of them. Plus I am sure most of his scenes will be a dragon fight and you don't wanna show that in the previews.

    Ha-ha. I guess no, cunnilingus counts to sex, too.

    Jon faction VS Daenerys faction

    The irony of someone posting this about someone they consider to be rude. The only remotely rude thing in my previous post was when I asked if you where lying or clueless, because you made a claim which was outright wrong. Given the tone your reply and lack of self-awareness, I genuinely think we're done here.

    "F*** Tradition" - Breaking Patriarchy

    It was a beautiful and touching scene indeed, but to suggest it was a moment of 'breaking patriarchy' in Westeros kind of forgets that all the strong leaders on the continent currently are women. Cercei, Dany and Sansa - might even throw in the ballsy Lady Mormont! Even before the knighting, Jamie was asking to serve under Brianne's military leadership. Let's not even think about Arya jumping poor Gendry.

    What an interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

    Who is Jon Snow?

    I am also thinking Jon is not a legitimate child of R+L. I don't think he will be a contender for the iron throne in the books, but one of the dragons 3 heads. This is great information for some theories thank you everyone!

    Bran: Who says there's an after? Jamie demise or Bran?

    Well, of course there is the chance that Jamie dies. It even is somehow likely. No matter what Bran said.
  25. Prince Jon

    Aim of the Nightking revealed

    Another agreement. There just has to be so much more than 'the NK wants to destroy mankind and all memories' now all of the sudden. Something caused him to chose this time to make his move. And he started to mobilize before Bran became the 3 eyed raven. I still believe that he is coming for something he is owed per a deal that was made thousands of years ago. Destroying mankind is just what he is doing until he gets what he wants.

    Then Greyworm is safe by default?
