They didn't turn the ship around, probably because they knew exactly what happened...going back was just walking into a death trap.

no
bad writing

Why couldn't they turn around? Doran promised them safety.

But If they couldn't like you said and people and guards really hated Doran like she said(though logically they had ZERO reasons tom either in series or in books), why not kill him then ALONG with Jamie, Myrcella and Trystane while they are all in the same place?

yeah it's intrusively bad in the Dorne scenes.

GOAT scene was when those two girl walked in to Trystane cabin with huge smiles on their faces and a fucking whip(assasins weapons of choice in close quarters apparently) Also Idk if these hacks done too much porn before GoT or what, but it's not facial expression a killer would have. For a while I thought it's a joke and they will drop to their knees and start sucking him but somehow the scene managed to end up being even worse than that with that massively corny dialogue at the end.

Short haired sand snake may suck at acting, but her tits alone are Oscar worthy

Seems like every deviation from the  book makes the  show suck more

What's got me irritated is the part of the Ramsey story when Pops Bolton implied that if Ramsey doesn't give him a grandson, he's dead. Roose needs an heir, but he thinks (rightly) that Ramsey will be a disaster. So as soon as Ramsey cranks out a son, or the fat Frey chick does, Ramsey is expendable. If he has any sense of self-preservation at all, he should be figuring out a way to kill his potential half brother, his step mom, and while we're at it, Roose, too. He's been legitimized, so that's the only way he stays alive and happily raping and torturing folks. Instead we get him looking all worried and sad.

Oh, and the only way the Dorne storyline can redeem itself is if the country plunged into civil war. Because Prince Doran was despised and deserved to die, let me see if I've got this straight- for keeping the country peaceful and prosperous. Even if folks didn't like Doran, his brother's girlfriend has exactly fuck all legitimate claim to the throne. And, after she commits regicide, princess-icide and whatever you call killing the heir to the throne, she's going to just plop her tight little ass down on the throne and everyone in not just Dorne, but the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, is going to shrug and go on with their day? Yeah, I'll fucking believe that.

If short haired sand snake isn't showing her tits, the whole sand snake crew needs to be removed from the show. They're terrible.

Well Ramsey is scared shitless of his father and probably knows that Roose is a lot smarter and more devious than he is.  As far as killing an heir, Ramsay has already killed a half brother which forced Roose to legitimize him so killing another (and a baby at that) shouldn't be too difficult.

It seems to be a really common thing these days in television to count on people just not remembering what happened last season.

I must be their demo cause I largely forgot until I looked through a recap on SB Nation last night. Dorne story line sucked (sand snake girls were corny), I was confused by the killing of the prince on the boat - howd the get there so fast?? Whatever, show has been downhill since first season. Still highlight of my Sunday nights (Veep is for Mondays)

The only Dorn worth watching on the screen is this one. They're all terrible actors and Roger would be ashamed.

post #5952 of 6654
Actually just watched that one a few nights ago. Truly a classic.
post #5953 of 6654
So who the fuck is the show equivalent of Young Griff from the books, anyway? Or does he not exist in the show?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
because Aegon Targaryen would now be the heir to Dorne as well as have a lineal claim to the Targaryen line. Unless of course the show writers remember that Ariane Martell also exists

And then Areo Hotah - who is one of the baddest, strongest warriors in Westeros (two handed Jamie Lannister level) gets killed by a single thrust of a little palm dagger. What the fuck? I mean, even if the show didn't really portray him as a great warrior, there is no believable way that a man of his size and muscle mass would be instantly felled by something that small. He would still be able to fight for a bit, even if it was poisoned
post #5954 of 6654

Areo is that strong in the books? He sure is just a pedestrian with a name in the TV series. No boobs = quick death.

 

Mountain lived long enough from Viper's poison to gouge Viper's eyes out.

I think it is safe to say that if the writers haven't introduced them yet...the missing dorne characters aren't going to show up.

Saw an article somewhere where they were actually asking HBO for permission to do the final season in *fewer* than 10 episodes.
