Right? You get it! It’s hard to explain how physical, emotionally, AND mentally exhausting all this work is. You’re cooking, cleaning, doing all the stereotypical “mom” stuff AND helping adults with their toileting and showering. You’re dealing with lifts, chairs, commodes, adult diapers, driving buses and vans with Read more

Sorry about that. I wasn’t replying to you specifically (though I was, obviously because I was directly replying to you. Just not TO you, if that makes sense) so much as this overall internet trend I’ve been seeing A LOT. I’m speaking about the attitude that’s become prevalent in general.

I can’t tell you how many Read more

Fun fact: I work in human service work, helping teach life skills and tackle harmful behaviors in people with disabilities. My field of work is one of the most dangerous there is, with the highest rates of on the job assaults and deaths at the hands of people we are serving. I have 88 hour work weeks AND I volunteer Read more

I agree but, honestly, I think that’s the only explanation we’re going to get for that. That he was either spared because he was a Targaryen or because he knew she loved him, or because he knew her quest for the throne destroyed her (hence destroying it)... but, really. If Drogon were smart enough to know the thirst Read more

In all fairness, I don’t think Sansa necessarily got to be Queen in the North strictly because of who she is. Of all the kingdoms, the North is most strongly rooted in tradition- but they’re also the closest thing we’ve seen to a democracy in that they seemed to really enthusiastically support their kings and, in Read more

SO much about this finale bothered me but I think, at least, with Bronn at Highgarden, nobody will be rich enough to buy him off again.

How is Sam an Archmaester? I mean, aside from him not even finishing his teaching at the Citadel (let’s assume he went back and finished and brought back the stolen books), he’s got a (common-law) wife and kid (kids? Because I got tired and don’t remember hearing what happened with Gilly and the baby).

And the whole Read more

They’re definitely magic (there have been allusions to the fact that the magic returned around the same time the dragons hatched- though, to be fair, that’s also around the same time Bran started warging (without knowing he was doing it). Basically, magic came back. That may have been due to the dragons hatching or, Read more

I agree. Jon broke his vows and hooked up with Ygritte, I have a hard time buying that he’d have an issue with Dany being his aunt. It felt like it was a thrown in to give them a reason to not be together.

And, really. Jon’s own grandparents were brother and sister, so....

Her mother wasn’t raped and killed there; Dany wasn’t even born then. Her mother escaped with her brother and gave birth to her. The person who was raped and killed was the woman who would have been her sister-in-law, had her brother not annulled the married to wed someone else. I think it’s kinda weird that you’re Read more

I agree with this. I think that he went to Winterfell to do what was right, his own safety be damned. Just like what when he killed the Mad King- it was about what was doing was right for the people. Jaime was a heroic and honorable dude (in that one specific area). But he was a dumbass from day one when it came to Read more

I suspect it might turn out that the white horse might have been sent by Bran, who could have easily warged into him to be, like, ‘Hey, Arya! Climb on and escape because there’s some important shit you’re supposed to do in the last episode!’

...It’s as logical as anything else.

I like the idea of Tyrion mirroring the past but, if you think about it, he already is a great example of history repeating itself.

His father was Hand when the Mad King lost it. His father betrayed the King, along with Jaime. Albeit, Jaime’s betrayal was noble (to save the people) and Tywin’s was less so (he was sort Read more

Agreed, it’s ridiculous and insulting.

I’ve read the books, several times. I’ve watched the series through, several times. It’s clear that, yes, they laid the groundwork for Dany to become the villain- just as they laid the groundwork for a lot of things that never came to pass or proved to be misdirection. It could Read more

Now that my head’s cleared a bit, my first thought was “Okay, what’s Bronn gonna do now?”

Cersei can’t pay him. Jaime is dead. There’s no payoff for him to go after Tyrion anymore. So that whole storyline suddenly feels really pointless, like they just needed to do something with the actor so, meh. There you go.

This is exactly it. I feel ripped off, I guess? And I’ve always been quick to defend the past few seasons and how rushed things had to be because of necessity (and, yeah. We didn’t need twenty episodes worth of watching people travel from one location to another).

But this was ridiculous. I expected characters I cared Read more

So weird that I said the EXACT same thing. It boils down to “bitches be crazy and can’t handle the stress of leadership. Better have a guy come in and take over.”

They’ve even given the impression that Sansa could potentially go down that path,too, so it’s just... blech.

So many people saying, “Anyone who didn’t see Read more

Couldn’t Bran have warged into the horse and sent it there? (And I’m sorry if that’s already been mentioned. I’m so burnt out right now and hungry, so I’m thick as a whale omelet.)

Yes.

I’ve heard people talking for years about the possibility of Gendry becoming king, and I thought it was bizarre and completely out of left field. It made zero sense to me.

I still think it’s bizarre, but now I’m thinking, who knows? Half the shit that’s happened recently hasn’t made any sense whatsoever anyway.
