No viewers of the show identify Stannis as "the best military tactician." You can't use the book to complain about the show, DUDE.

That was pretty bad indeed. IIRC in the book Cersei was self-conscious about her body during the walk, but the actress who plays her had nothing to be ashamed of. If anything she'd have won the love of the people with that gesture, for sure.

The episode frequently felt contrived. Setting aside the whole Stannis mess, I half expected them to grab Indira whatshername right there and shake her down for the antidote. How could anyone be that stupid?

The things he did in the books are canon in the show.

 

Show Stannis held storms end for a year, eating rats rather than surrender.

 

Show Stannis smashed the iron fleet when the Greyjoys rebelled, defeating the greatest Naval force in Westeros. 

 

But no, now show Stannis just looses all sense, burns his family, and charges into certain defeat. 

 

The whole last third of this season has been "I hate Stannis Baratheon" fanfiction.

I never understood how a new militant cult was able to overthrow overnight the existing military and political and judicial infrastructure in the nation's capital. Don't they get their authority from the queen? Where is the Kings guard and the city guard? They all have armour and real weapons and military training. Pretty sure they could just kill the cult members. How do they bypass the existing court system just because they want to?

Also I don't understand why the fuck they killed Stannis. I thought he was the second coming of the lord of light. Seems pretty crucial to the plot.

Also in the book Jon snow dies (?) because he took the wildlings and some of the crows to go save Stannis which is against the oath. In the show he dies (confirmed in the episode explaining portion) because he led some men die into the hardhome? That's it?

Ugh I hate this show so much. Words cannot express the idiocy more so if GRRM helped it happen. None of the events have real motivation from the characters. They just happen because they can and for shock value

WTF?  Why not have Ramsay Bolton decapitate and skull-f*ck Sansa too?  I mean, why not?

 

Getting the sense show runners and GRRM don't exactly know where all this is ultimately heading or quite how to get there.  Or, in the end, how they get there doesn't really matter.  All the lead up to the climax is a total f*cking red herring.

Yeah like I said before I haven't read the books, but a good friend of mine who has told me his biggest worry was that GRRM didn't have it nailed down on how it was all going to come together at the end. After tonight's episode I can see why. I'm saying this having enjoyed this season on the whole more then I get the impression a lot of you did.

Pretty good episode IMO.

Show Stannis was portrayed as an inept retard for all his actions. So he met his end.

The show needs an evil character to hate on and Ramsey is the new Joffery. So he is not gonna die easy.

We need less of Danny plot. Stupid shit.

Bran and his little brother is just missing now for a whole season? No sexy wildlings or fireball wizards.

The walk of shame is nicely done.

And how Jon Snow dies is filmed nicely. But the mutiny took so long in planning and there's been only Jon and Sam in the keep...

Sam would've seen through it and Jon had enough supporters until most've them died to zombies I suppose.

Overall, I thought that was a solid episode.

 

Possible book spoilers? (Click to show)
I think things are pretty clearly set up for Melisandre to raise Jon from the dead, similar to Beric Dondarrion. The show hasn't mentioned the prince that was promised prophecy, right?

Goes off to check the web for recent Kid H pics. Hair off he stays dead, hair long he will live on...

so I read it's cut off...

Who were those horsemen that surrounded Dany? Were they Khal Drogo's people and if not, whatever happened to them?
post #5654 of 6660
they're from the other khals. some of them are the ones that abandoned her when she emerged with the dragons

in the book khal's people are still with her in mereen and are part of her force and are close confidants. they seem to have just disappeared in the show. dont recall seeing them after she freed the unsullied

I would bet money that this is what happens. It would also release him from his Night's Watch vows, so he would be free to do something else.


This is really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3o2LqFZcGU
