It seems obvious to say now, but of course Martin’s novels are going to play out differently. They’ve got to, because a significant amount of important characters are so enmeshed in the story that it can’t really come to a close without their involvement.
I think the running fan theory is that she may be pregnant with Robb’s baby unbeknownst to us yet, meaning another Stark floating around. But it’s hard for me to keep track of it all when it’s been so long.
I’m not OP, but it would seem to me that you really only needed last season and this to be full-length, maybe at most with one more 10 ep season. That’s the thing--it really didn’t need to go on that many more years or seasons, just be written by competent writers who knew how to pace out the material.
I sense the thing that bothers them the most is the way they ended up there.
She finds a continent populated by Wildlings, she decimates their communities by spreading Westerosi diseases through them and then easily conquers them as a result, and, full of her sense of badass Stark self-worth, brings back an addictive cash crop they taught her how to grow. “You die a hero, or...” Makes sense to…
Ha, one of my FB friends just said “Undying Lands.” I was thinking more “she’s the Westeros Walter Raleigh,” but I can see it.
Naaaaaaaaah. Hot people screwing paleolithic hominids into humanity only for your descendants to make roombas and start the robot apocalypse again is forever the dumbest series ending.
Not miserable about where they ended up, but how they got there SUUUCKED.
I mean...who knew that Westeros would become a democracy?
God, this comment could be left in reply to more than half the posts on the article.
and now you can just lazily shit out these opinions on the internet.
That’s the problem, though. DeLillo dialogue should never be spoken aloud in dramatic context.
The only thing we glean from the return to Vormir is that it’s awfully lucky that people keep bringing their loved ones there with them. What happens if you travel all the way to Vormir and leave your beloved somewhere else?
I’m not sure what you mean by “the” argument. There certainly are a lot of people saying that those of us who think it’s rushed or imperfect (who I think are still the majority) are wrong, and often that we’re stupid. That’s what the other commenter and I are talking about.
In her original appearance in the comics, Gamora is working for Adam Warlock, so it seems like they can two-birds/one-stone those potential plot threads by having the team get tangled up with Warlock, and it turns out that Gamora is there as his hired muscle or something.
Wouldn’t it have to be (B)? If it was (A), then he wouldn’t show up as an old man at the end of the movie, unless the universe we’re seeing at the end is the offshoot universe, but if it is, that would have to be a universe in which the Hydra/SHIELD thing never happened, which probably means all MCU movies after…
Thank you. I’m pretty baffled at the thousand “I’m so smart for knowing she would turn heel, everyone else is an idiot for being surprised comments.” The backlash has really very clearly been against the execution of her villainous turn, not the fact of it happening. It’s mind-blowing to see the contrarians so…
Love the show, always will, but if you can’t see the last two seasons are rushed as fuck compared to 1-6 when they had the books to adopt, you’re just lying to yourself.
I don’t think I’m a big Star Wars fan relative to these parts—I’ve seen all the movies, played a couple of the video games, read only one book, never watched the cartoons. Coming from there, I agreed with you, Charles, that I wanted to the new trilogy to do trailblazing and mythos busting.
When you use the apology as a shield—it’s in the post. By which I assume they mean apologizing only so people get off your back, not because you actually care. Which five year olds know to do, ergo not a sign of maturity.
