On a more simple level: I talked to my wife about my feelings and suddenly all my problems were solved.
I feel like Fuches was played as some kind of brilliant manipulator in Season 1, and from that, I assumed the Coke can was a ruse to give false DNA or something. Guess not? It seems like Fuches is dumber in this season, between the DNA and not telling the client about the killings involved in the job.
EXCUSE ME? I’m not mad about the gay marriage part, I’m mad that our children’s shows are now showing AARDVARKS getting MARRIED? What kind of leftical revolutionary mindfuck is this?
This, at best, sounds like a really great Fanfiction exercise: write the final 2 seasons of Game of Thrones as if they were 10 episode seasons and build out the story that exists so that all the final decisions here are earned and make sense. GO!
Most of the problems of the show’s last 2 seasons could have been prevented if they just kept the show’s 10 episode seasons as it was.
I get the desire to write a scene that is dramatic in its reveals, but reveals via some sneaking and scouting can be just as badass and fascinating. I don’t know shit about battle strategy, but I do play enough D&D to know that making any movement anywhere blind is dumb as shit. If the good guys are gonna get their…
If you can dodge a 20-or-so arrows coming at you head on, you can dodge a 20-or-so arrows coming at you at a different angle that may involve them having to shoot through their own sails to hit you. Just like Rip Torn said.
Seeing Tormund genuinely sad about not getting with Brienne made me a little frowny too. Sure, he got over it, but it’s Tormund, a man who has few fucks to give (when not in the name of his friends and alcohol).
Hey, wouldn’t it be great if we sent scouts ahead for our ships? No? Okay. Well what about if we get Drogon to flank the enemy ships and burn their sails from behind. No? Okay yeah cool, good talk.
Every girl who was ever in high school has never related this much to Ser Brienne of Tarth.
This. My in-game albums are mostly filled up with pictures of Hylian retrievers rolling around on the ground or chasing their tails.
So well done. Anyone who uses prosthetics for their cosplay is next level, IMO.
That this has turned into a D&D exploration of how this battle has gone gives me true joy. Arya as Human Rogue would be a new 5e Character template that I can get behind.
Cersei wishes she were the Big Bad. Her status now is more like “person who is there, on the thrones, with paid warriors and nothing left to fight for.” Having lost everything at this point, her desire for the Iron Thrones feels as hollow as the Night King’s need to kill Bran. Like, Cersei, just go back to Casterly…
Starring for “crit success” because nothin’ like rolling a d20 attack roll on the Night King, amiright?!
Starring for “wight girl wasted”
Counter-theory: The Night King approaches our heroes at Winterfell and proposes they all take down Cersei in King’s Landing, their reason being she fights her battles by buying an army, whereas both the White Walkers and the Northerners fight for their people.
Right?! All it would have taken was an introduction, a line, something! Maybe it’ll be brought up in future episodes, but given how little Jorah’s past has been brought to attention since his greyscale diagnosis several seasons back, it’s likely not going to happen. (I hope I am wrong as more episodes air, and then am…
His character changed drastically after Season 4's Joffrey murder party, mainly because once they surpassed the book, the show couldn’t figure out how to make Littlefinger’s machinations make sense in the context of all the other stories they were making up. I wouldn’t be surprised if Littlefinger makes it to the end…
I was hoping Sansa would get a line in at the trial along the lines of “I know Arya and the last thing she would want is to be the Lady of Winterfell, you idiot.” Because I immediately assumed Sansa would realize Littlefinger was playing her when she said that aloud earlier in the episode, but it was played so…
