Time for those who haven't read the books to start speculating what'll come next - and those who have, not to reveal that much.
But last night's events? Fair game. Let's hear it.
in loving memory of IRRI =.\ AND every hot casualty of the rewrite
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elHaFwbv4BAalso TWO REACTIONS ONE FROM THE DIRECTOR AND THE OTHER FROM GRRhttp://insidetv.ew.com/2014/06/16/game-of-thrones-why-no-lady-stoneheart/http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/06/16/game-of-thrones-finale-martin/
I loved the conversation between Mance and Jon inside the tent. It really made for a great look into who and what kind of person the King Beyond the Wall is. Also, the dialog between him, Davos and Stannis was good. I'm looking forward to seeing more of them next season.
Was I the only one thinking that it was a sad waste of resources to burn the Night's Watch fallen men while they were still wearing their armor? Sure they probably have a lot more of that stuff to spare, but it's still good material that could be put to better use than burning.
Loved the look for the child of the forrest and The Three Eyed Crow. Can't wait to see more of them next year. Sad to see Jojen get 86'd. I guess that's a statement on how important he is or isn't for future books in the series.
The scene where Cersei shakes down her father with threats of telling people the truth and then has to spell it out for him that she and her brother are all freaky close like that... wow! Great scene that wasn't in the books but works well as an addition none the less.
Though it was a big deviation from the original plot, I loved seeing Brienne throw down with Sandor. This whole season has mostly been spent finding new things for her and Podrick to do, but this was the first one that was a really cool addition.
guys DO WE HAVE A CONFIRMATION FOR OBY'S daughters in 5 AND 6 ??
AND what about the HORN OF WINTER that asha's uncle got
am I the only one thinking that operation on the mountain will make him some kind of steam-punk arm or is that guy just gonna give him some magic drugs that heal him and make him stronger but make him into even more of a mindless killing machine
if shes just leaving them down there what happens when those dragon grow up with skulls the size of a carriage or is she just gonna kill them
and why don't those dragons just use their fire breath to melt away the chains and the stone door other than the fact that it would eat up the oxygen, but they don't know that
I don't watch Game of Thrones, and I don't hate it or its fans, but for some reason I love the fact that I know nothing about it and understand none of the references.
Can someone tell me if I am wrong to feel bad?Last night episode Has Tyrion killing Tywin and Shea.
I have read the books. I know How he does it, and what he does it with.
I also know what he says in the book.
Now comes to my problem.
This girl I know. She can be a real Lady Child when she wants to be.
Has watched every damn episode, but refuses to read the book.
I am the other way around. I have read almost every book "on book 4, but know what happens in book 5 already.", but I can not see the show since I dont have HBO.
Last night about 10 to 10:30 it was floating all over the net about what happened. The West Coast had not even got to see it yet, and the East cost was like Spoilers. Tyrion kills his Dad and Shea.
Now comes to the part I want to ask if I spoiled it.
In the book Tyrion says after he shoots his day. I guess he did not shit gold after all "Or something very close to it".
I got called out for spoiling it since he did not say it in the show, but did in the book?
He did everything else in the book that would be a major spoiler. He kills his dad. He kills Shea for 1. Lying about everything, and 2. lying with his Dad. Two Very good reasons for him to kill them.
I hear they did not even make it out that Shea was boning his old man! HAHA
Think what would have happened if I dropped that knowledge on her. -__-
Raging the runners promised a benchmark and fucked up so many things like the Brother development, Tysha getting dropped, Tyrion not burning brother bridges, whitewashing Tyrion, a Hound Brienne fight.... but I liked it aside from it definitely is not in the five best eps this season. Jojen dying was unexpected but considering fans think he was killed in books, who knows?
I wonder what they'll do with Sansa Stark & Littlefinger and Brandon next year, since their storyline, unlinke other characters', seem to have catch up with the books...
I'm looking forward to the many upcoming gifs that mashup Jon Snow with Darth Vader in ROTJ
Very Hollywood. Punches to the gut and groin in full armor should have done nothing to either. Neither of them were using blades appropriate to deal with plate armor. Blows to the head are so underrated in cinematic fighting. Not near enough blood from the head wounds - head wounds bleed profusely. Generally a small cut above the eyes is enough to blood blind a person.
What the hell was Pod doing during the fight?
It had Skeleton warriors that would make Ray Harryhausen proud. And fireballs. I will say no more
episode wise ... JON AND IGGY forever =/
i have never cried for cat in the red wedding (cus through the series and book she was a total bitch to john,INSTEAD OF BEING a good step mom and be considerate) everyone else i did cry for but CAT.
thats pretty much all i got.
but the ASSWHUPPIN OF THE SEASON was worth the poetic license the writers took , had me laughing my ass off XD
Tywin Lannister got a shitty Father's Day present.
@NebulaJack I was grateful they didn't use their nude budget on the men of the night's watch - probably would have been stripped but for the sake of getting the shot done without having to show a hundred dinguses - it was fine.
Yeah the Cersei thing was great, but pointless since he dies and that leaves Jamie in charge of the family more or less anyway.
So far as I know there haven't been any casting announcements for season 5 yet.
@jaganar Oh, we'll see a lot of Dorne in the next couple seasons. And I'll say no more of that. ;)
1. The world presented in Game of Thrones doesn't lend itself to well to steam punk stuff, so don't get your hopes up. I'd say your second guess is a more likely event to occur.2. The dragons probably don't know about metal melting, and it's also possible (and likely) that Dany ordered chains of strong metal with a high enough melting point that Rhaegal and Viserion won't be able to melt it anytime soon.
in reply to your fear :3
@OneMinuteGalactica So you could say...you know nothing, Jon Snow.
gally be silent or i shall send the writing team who did SHITTY-galactica final season to your home , then
youll be sorry
The line "In the end, Tywin Lannister did not shit gold" was done through narration and not said by anyone (though I can imagine that someone might make that joke next season).If your friend who watched the show had already seen that episode before you told her about the "did not shit gold line" then you didn't spoil anything, you merely pointed out a change that happened on the show. If you pointed out the line before she saw the episode, then yes it's a spoiler.Also, the scene plays out differently in so far as how Tyrion ends up in his father's chambers. As you know, in the books Jaime confesses that Tyrion's first wife Tysha wasn't actually a whore and that Tywin forced Jamie to lie about her so as to put a kibbosh on the marriage. This motivates Tyrion to A) Lie about having killed Joffrey out of spite because of his anger at Jamie and B) take a side trip to go kill his dad and discovering Shae (who is a total gold digger in the books that never loved him at all) in Tywin's bed.
The confession by Jaime was omitted, which alters both the relationship between them, and Tyrion's motive for going up to Tywin's chambers.
@JimmyBones the part that his father was boning shae is something to be interpreted by the scene, and they took all the saying shit part, although he was shitting when he was killed
I'm not sure how whitewashed Tyrion is in this episode. He didn't lie to Jamie about killing Joffrey, but he also had less motive for killing Tywin than he does in the books. I think him going up to his chambers to kill him without the rage of finding out the truth about Tysha ultimately makes him more vicious than he was in the books.
Seasons 5 & 6 are gonna be interesting to see in terms of positioning plot.
It looks like they've still got some catching up to do Jon and the rest of the nights watch.
Some of the characters like Brienne, Pod, Sansa and Danaerys are a little ahead with plot elements from books 4 & 5 having already come onto the screen.
Bran's sorta caught up or maybe ahead. I don't recall if he first meets the three eyed crow at the end of book 3 or the beginning of book 4, but there's still that one seemingly important character from the books who should have appeared last season and still hasn't shown up yet. Speculation has been going around over whether or not that person has been written out of the show altogether.So far the only major characters that seem to be caught up without having gotten ahead are Arya and Tyrion.While the show's currently only renewed up through season 6, I'm thinking that they'll need at least 3 seasons maybe four to catch up to where the latest book has ended
@FabioRezende Eh Sansa has a little more to catch up. Bran I think we will get less scenes with. There is lots to cover with everyone else so the show will probably focus there.
@Big.Jim.Slade I was going to ask the same...
@Big.Jim.Slade jimmy you got to explain that joke to me dude oO
Pod was of camera somewhere watching the fight and trying to figure out if he should jump in and get Brienne's back or not, when he should have (according to Brienne anyway) been keeping an eye on Arya and trying to keep her from running off.Let's all take a moment to think about whether or not Pod could have stopped Arya from taking off... anyone one wanna argue that he would have had a chance in any of the seven hells keeping her there?
Ice skeletons... what was their motivation? Kill all humans? Were they guarding the tree cave to prevent anyone from entering? Anyway I giggled at how once they broke free of the ice they suddenly
got a lot weaker. You just broke through ice from a position of no
leverage - that takes massive amounts of force - you'd be hard pressed
to build a machine that could do that. Massive ice breaking ships have a
hard time doing that with advantages of mass and inertia.
@FabioRezende Except they were CGI right?
@SumEllisOck Also, Lannisters do not shit gold
@NebulaJack @JimmyBones Thank you. Like I said before. She is a over grown Lady Child.
@AFMG @Big.Jim.Slade Sorry. To clarify a bit. I'm looking forward to lots of gifs with Jon Snow burning Darth Vader's body in a funeral pyre.
@Gallen_Dugall I assume they were rotted wights
GALLY , only for half the scenes , you actuallty see the actor stabbing jojen..
and in the closeups i think they used legit stunt people .
altho when summer JUMPED that zombie that was about to take bran out , THAT EXPLOSION made no damn sense Oo
@Gallen_Dugall @FabioRezende Yes
Ooooh that sounds like a fun bit've a challenge. I don't even know if I could figure that out but maybe someday.
@Kozmik_Pariah fair enough, I know what wights are in historical mythology, although I don't know what that means in context
@jaganar @Gallen_Dugall @FabioRezende
I thought the explosion was was the child of the forrest launching her magic whatchamacallit fireball at the skeleton guy.
@jaganar @Gallen_Dugall @FabioRezende The stabby one was more zombie than skeleton though.
MAGIC! Whenever there are skeletons and dragons and fire balls and ice giants and mammoths and zombies and shamans that can astral project and none of it makes sense I just shrug and say "Magic!"
@Kozmik_Pariah @jaganar @Gallen_Dugall @FabioRezende I liked Stabby
@zombie10q @Gallen_Dugall yeah but these are the things I think about
Nerd news, humor and self-loathing.
