Default GOT Season 7 (SPOILERS)

What an incredible episode tonight. Just shows how much better the writing is than Walking Dead the past few seasons. The battle plan has been shattered before it could even start and now Cersei has the only navy. Won't be long before they mount dragon killing ballistas on all the ships.

Considering how this show typically is, I suspect it'll end terribly for the "good guys".

Yeah this season is going balls out.

I feel like since now they are not beholdened to GRRM they can do some better writing. GRRM is great at world building and ideas and all that, but it felt like some of the earlier stuff wasn't the easiest to translate to the screen.. likely because they had to combine characters and omit stuff to streamline it enough for TV. Now they can just do their own thing and if a book comes out later that contradicts it.. who cares.

It finally feels like all the damn pieces are coming together, which is nice after so long.

I figured that two navies couldn't exist at the same time, but I guess that was only a tiny force headed to Dorne.. the rest must still be at Dragonstone.

Glad they're working to heal Sir Friendzone as well.

I am guessing we'll see Arya's direwolf and pack again, jumping into the white walker fray at just the right moment.

Sir Friendzone...heh. Wouldn't things have been easier if he had just passed out?

Yeah you'd think so, though maybe he'd wake up suddenly and start screaming?

That looked very painful, though I did appreciate the transition into the pie

The hallmark of the series is no one is 100% evil or 100% good (except Ramsey). Dany still is sounding a little mad kingish.

Anyways, my point is, parts of the show is starting to feel like an rpg where the heroes are collecting things to battle evil. Doesn't fit.

Unless..,

Were exposed a little more to the Night King in a way where we don't view them as evil but as another player with reasonable motivations.

Well, I think right now Littlefinger is running the The Vale of Arryn and the Vale. I can't remember, is the little shit kid still alive? Either way, he's technically a male too.

The Westerlands would be Jamie right? I don't know what other Lannister would be running it at this point, though since he's still in the "Queens" Guard, I don't really know. Would Cersi run that at the same time she's queen? Grey area.

Euron is running the Iron Islands.

I'm not sure who is running the Stormlands now.

I've reluctantly watched all of GoT so far and most of that ^ was French to me.

Haha it would be cool if they made it so you were actually learning something useful by memorizing all that crap.

Yeah, I feel like I need a class and flash cards and maps with keys to really get everything. The show just throws wacky material, names and characters out there and I'm supposed to know WTH they're talking about??

My indifference is probably why it's so challenging for me to keep up. Instead of attempting to understand what I'm confused about, I just end up going "Eh, screw it.". I have no problem following along with shows or films that I'm very much invested in.

I do think having read the books helps, even though there are some big changes. The overall lay of the land is the same.

I watched the first 2 seasons on HBOGO because at the time they had this feature that explained the characters and places in the sidebar and allows you to pause and watch a small featurette on a particular character in a scene or mentioned in the scene. It helped immensely.

That should be at least a feature that can always be turned on and off.

I hate when they talk about people since I can't keep track of them, but I'm good with anyone on screen. Thankfully HBO does an excellent job prior to the episode showing relevant scenes from the past that you need for context.

That dude, or, the dudes, that showed up to meet with Cersi...I don't recall ever seeing or hearing of them prior. They probably mentioned them in season 1 and we were supposed to remember that.

After the episode my wife says, "That was your favorite episode, wasn't it?". "Yeah. You loved that action packed ending too?"

The two guys who Jamie talked to are Tarlys. As in Samwell Tarly, the current shit keeper at Oldtown. They're his father and brother.

Yeah I think they showed a brief scene before the episode of Samwell meeting with his Dad on his way to Old Town last season to give a refresher. They do a good job with that as PCS said.

Sam's brother, I believe, was recast. That's Billy Bones from Black Sails.

How I think it's going to go down. Obviously, the meeting of all of these players at the same time does not bode well for these characters.

My vote is for Melisandre for f'ing up the union of Snow and Kaleesi. Mel has a way of turning powerful people into lunatics and what a horrible union between the Mother of Dragons and the lady that looooooveees bonfires. They've been heavily hinting about Stormborn turning into the Mad King and burning people alive. She's threatened to burn people alive, and she's just been told to be a dragon.

Davos becomes the wildcard. Upon seeing her joining Dany, he'll become enraged that she's still a player in this. He'll reveal her crimes which will cause a diplomatic split and also a split within Dany's counsel as Varys will become conflicted with his own past as a child victim to the Lord of Light. I can see several characters being offed. I can also see this leading to the confirmed revelation that Snow is a Targarion but as the intended target of dragon fire. And I see this as the downfall of Stormborn. My feeling is that Snow will eventually become King of Westeros. I feel as a story, the one character who didn't want it, had nothing, and stayed away from the central political tug of war, would be a compelling story.
