    On earth, the winters are relatively short like 5 to 6 months. Enough food can be stockpiled to last through it. Some animals hibernate.

    The winters in the GOT land last much longer and it seems it might not be possible to have food stored. The war has used and depleted many resources. Surviving the winter seems to be very difficult. Then again, how did anyone survive North of the wall where it's always cold?

    This guy has yet another theory on the gift that Euron will give Cersei. Ellaria Sand and her children would be a possibility.

    Normally I agree, but the show is winding down and I expect less bullshit political stuff and more actual fighting against each other.

    But we'll see. I hope Snow doesn't get fooked!

    Thoros is a priest of the Lord of Light...

    Why would you put yesterday's episode in spoiler tags?

    I had no clue who this singer guy is but I thought that scene was good. You kept waiting for something to happen and then realized that they didn't have bad intentions. A surprising thing in this world. I feel like it's a tease towards the future when Lannisters will be fighting along side Jon, Dany and everyone else against the White Walkers. It's getting us ready.

    But then again, that can all change next episode when they try too mess with her<Lmaoo>

    Ed Sheeran stole the show as best new character.... I guess Jim Broadbent was OK too but I need more Sheeran.

    You are mostly right but not about the sword thing. Longclaw is a part of Jon has been with him through some wild times and is a bastard sword for a bastard king. Longclaw is Jons sword and will stay that way but the rest I agree with you on

    Seems like Dragonstone having Dragon Glass is what connects Dany to Jon. Makes me wonder what was the point of Jorah getting Greyscale and meeting Sam. There's gotta be more too it.

    Thoros doesn't worship the Faith of the Seven, which is what the Hound was reciting.

    Would have been awesome if the Storm Crows were hanging out in Dragonstone.

    as distant as the horizon

    The point is that it's shotty from a character perspective. It's the equivalent of her throwing a tantrum with her father at Kingslanding in season 1 when he wanted to send her off because it wasn't safe. But in season 1 she was young and that naive reaction made sense. Her character regress's instantly before our eyes in scenes like that now.


    If we as an audience are supposed to start seeing Sansa as a smarter, stronger, and more cunning character it doesn't help to have her throwing fits during a large important gathering -revealing her true feelings to people she doesn't trust. That's just stupid. Now the Karstarks and Umbers know how she feels. Smart tactical thinkers in the past in this show don't do shit like that -and it's because a clever writer in GRRM who wasn't trying to create false tension for a random scene created those original scheming characters. But the writers of the show have outpaced the books and it's really starting to become obvious. The characters left in this show are getting dumber and clumsier.


    I get that most people aren't going to be as critical as I would with stuff like this in general, but for fucksakes I feel like this is a pretty obvious one.


    The only other explanation for this type of thing is if they're actually trying to show Sansa is weak and doesn't have what it takes. Or that she is trying to play games with everyone's head (including Jon) but I doubt that. I think it's just lazy uninspired writing.

    Meh? It was fine.. glad it's back, I suppose

    Good shit:
    -the hound and the hound scenes. Fuckin guy is great.

    -the archmaester with Sam was awesome. Great writing and Jim broadbent rules.

    The bad:
    -opening scene was NOT game of thrones level. It was shit. The Freys etc. It was obvious and predictable and drawn out and unnecessary. It was corny and hand holdy.

    -how the fuck would dragonstone and its castle be COMPLETELY unoccupied? Why wouldn't remnants of stannis' shit still be there? People etc. Why wouldn't some hobos, or criminals or pirates be chilling there? And Daenerys just waltzing around without guards scoping it out was just absurd.

    -too much samwell. Just too much. The archmaester scene was great, but man Sam had moreairtime than anyone in the season opener? Really?
