Game of Thrones Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

They've been covered by snowfall mostly. Ramsey just let them lie and Jon/Sansa  have been kinda busy.

 

This is why in all by D&D/Pathfinder games I insist on cremating the dead. Very few undead monstrosities form from ash.

Apparently a lot of people have forgotten the corpses left outside Winterfell after Stannis’ Last Stand. 

 

You know, they can't grow crops to eat during winter and the cold would have preserved the bodies very well.

 

I think the solution is fairly obvious: Soldier Stew.

C'mon, after showing incest in detail like the producers would shy away from showing cannibalism?

At the very least there may be a Targaryen smell. Drogon clearly recognized Jon Snow as Targaryen once he got close. And I don't think Arya's faces will help with that. 

 

Or do they? She essentially becomes the person when the mask is on, including body mass, apparently. Those things are almost as good as the masks on Scooby Do!

 

But maybe . . .

 

Plot Twist! Drogon senses the imposter and eats Arya! Driven mad by grief, Drogon just keeps eating Westerosi royalty until he wins the Game of Thrones!

Is this a topic "with spoilers" or "without spoilers"?

 

I'm not likely to see this season's episodes until a few months after it ends so I'm wondering if I should keep reading this discussion.

Good episode. The mass combat was a tad impersonal but I suppose the "Battle of the Bastards" may have set the bar too high. Only one death that I didn't expect but another I'd hoped against but they both went out like bosses. I also called the person who got the big kill at the end to my fellow viewers so I enjoyed that doubly.

Had some epic moments for sure. Watched it on my older computer monitor after I got off work this morning, and the blacks were just pixelated blobs. I'll have to rewatch it on the TV to see if it at least looks better in that regard, but probably won't. Not much practical difference between blackish pixels and uniform black backgrounds anyway.

The main complaint everyone seems to have is that the entire episode was just too dark to see.  It had its place in the beginning of the battle, where it really conveyed the way the gloom created a fog of war, but once the action started it just made things impossible to follow.

As explained last season, the original prophecy is in Valyrian or something which uses genderless pronouns.  "Prince or princess who was promised" is the more accurate translation in Westerosi.

 

Of course, it's not as though Arya used a red and/or flaming sword either.  If the prophecy actually matters, it's probably a lot less literal.
