I've told yous time and again you should be watching Emergency Awesome
That was great. Opening scene a belter. Sansa becoming cool as fuck. Daenaerys ready to kick arse. Ace.
Sweary Hound was on particularly good form this episode I thought. He's remarkably likeable considering his general demeanour, isn't he? I find myself wanting to see him do alright more and more.
I don't get the bit in the citadel where Sam 'discovers' that there's lots of dragonglass on Dragonstone. Everyone knew that already. He even said himself that Stannis had told him. How was this meant to be some big revelation?
When Jon was going on about needing dragonglass I though Ser Davos might have piped up and mentioned there being shit loads of it at Dragonstone
They knew it was there, just not precisely where. That highly detailed OS like map is all they needed to pinpoint the fine coordinates
It doesn't look a very big island they didn't even talk about trying to look for it
the whole ed sheeran scene was out of place and weird. they were trying to make the lannister soldiers appear human. Friendly and welcoming. offering food to a stranger, thinking of family, baby and all. just felt out of kilter with the usual behaviour of the lannister army.
They were quite plainly off duty.
Right we're on the clock again. Whose turn is it to threaten to rape her?
Great castle. Real estate is pretty under utilised over there isn't it.
thought: the episode made mention of the fact that brienne bested the hound and the hound now appears to be headed right off up to the edge of the wall (lol at him moaning about having fallen in with fire worshippers). So the much spoken of Cleganebowl might not be on the cards as zombie mountain is down south with cersie. Perhaps it will be brienne vs hound again then. And arya to assassinate zombie mountain and cersie somehow
Can someone remind me - what happened with the hound and the dead people in that house?
did u not see post # 62???
him and arya in srs 4 the roadtrip, they used the hospitality then hound left them tied up and robbed.So they starved as winter came in. There was a brief recap on my d/l that showed it
He's after a source closer to home. He'd have to fight a war to reach Dragonstone. All he can do is ask and hope they send some but he can't count on that.
i found euron greyjoy's outfit strangely out of place. it looked more like a 20th century outfit...
I enjoyed the Euron scene. Bit of politics to enjoy.
Then I realised something:
He vexes over the fleet that went turn coat.
He has a thousand ships.
He knows they are with Denerys and transporting her over.
Instead of waiting for them and destroying them easily at sea he sails to Kings Landing to offer to destroy them and propose (knowing he'll most likely be turned down).
If his gift is to destroy them then his negotiating skills are for shit. Failing to get payment up front he intends to do the job and hope they'll pay him his asking price afterwards. When they refuse what will he do? Sew the traitors heads back on and let them go again? They going to pay him his prize for something he claims to want to do anyway?
While he has been fannying around Denerys has reached land destroying the naval advantage he had.
The man is a dick. Also he could have just taken over Kings Landing. He had enough men the state it's in at present.
well he has a gift for cersi...I'm thinking it might be the horn from the books. it would be odd if it is the horn as it has never been mentioned before.
The horn Mance was looking for?
Passing reference was made to Wildling search parties but it wasn't ever explained what they were looking for or that it was all a bluff.
Clegane, he's the Hound wiv a heart. Suffer the poor children.
Arya's racking up her body count and Lyanna Mormont shows the men some Northern soul.
No. It's one that controls dragons that Euron has in the books. It kills the person who blows on it, though. But it could be the same one. Can't remember...
'Why are you always in such a foul mood?'
Words to live by.
good point in a review I read. Cersie has always been slightly mad in the same way as her father, the tyrants madness. But she was always in the game for her children, now there are none left and she is playing the game because thats all she knows.
Enemies to the north, discontent to the south, east are the brexit heartlands. Nominally queen but much reduced in power since the high sparrow won in our universe. Theresa Lannister
Pah. You know the whole thing will end with the brothers sorting it out peacefully and bonding over their mutual love of roast chicken.
When Dany moves into her new castle then, she just gets straight on with taking over the over the world?
I call bullshit on that, everyone makes a cup of tea before they do anything else in a new house.
bullshit. the first thing you do in a new house is have sex. then you have a party. party in westeros = war. logically sound.
Varys will be the first one to have a crap in the new digs
And a chippy tea (dinner, whatever)
