    Carrying over the discussion:

    Wut? Where was it built up anywhere close to being one of the most epic invasions to take place? The only time you should use the word 'epic' when referring to the Ironcans is 'epic failure'.

    There is no Theon. Yara realized it, why can't you?


    It makes plenty of sense.

    They may talk big, but they don't really do shit.

    They went with the 50 best cans, so what?

    Yara was the only one who gave a shit about Theon. What kind of welcome did Theon receive when he returned home? How was he treated by his father? How was he treated by the others? Theon's own men turned on him at Winterfell, yet you think they're that concerned with honor? Nobody gave a shit about him aside from Yara, and at the point, she stopped giving a shit, too.

    Moat Cailin to the Dreadfort is a decent trip, but is it a capitalized FAR trip? I don't think so.

    They didn't have a clear advantage.

    That shirtless guy was owning soldiers with shields.

    No.

    Ramsay is a boss.

    They've already shown themselves to be cowards...

    So, nothing new for the Ironcans?

    It can't be fun being that Jack Gleeson kid.

    Either lame GoT fanboys are all over you asking questions or they're heckling you over your portrayal of some fictional character.

    I'm sure there are quite a few people that he runs into who have a legit appreciation for just how good he was on the show. It was great performance. Dare I say one of the great performances by a teenager.

    Watching old episodes of GOT.

    first, Iron Born are a bunch of thieving, back-stabbing losers. Iron cans is appropriate name for them.

    second, Tyrion was exceptional as the hand and leader. Too bad he lost his position and now is about ready to get something cut. Of all the leaders, Tyrion was the most successful in King's landing.

    third, Cersei is the worst leader ever. Every decision she makes that is not about scheming or subterfuge, is abad choice and decision.

    finally, why the outrage over Jaime/Cersei "rape" scene but no outrage at Khal/Dany scenes where she was essentially assaulted every night.

    that's it. I'm done repeating the obvious.

    I watched the first episode a week or so ago and I laughed at the scene where Joffrey gets slapped by Tyrion and then looks like a pussy when the wolf bites him.

    I think the outrage is that it was one of the most underwhelming 'rape' scenes we've ever seen.

    Yeah, they were going to be my 10th option, but I figured it best to go with "Other" to encompass all of the ones I missed. Like House Dondarrion, Mormont, Tarth, Renly, etc.

    Just realized I forgot Targaryen.

    The Greyjoys are the biggest pusses going on this show. They are the only real force that hasn't faced any real set back or depletion of manpower yet no one gives a shit about them. Their whole storyline is a waste of time, you might as well have had Theon be the son of a Stark Bannerman that betrays Rob and just be done with that plot device. IF you are going to have a group of seafaring people and call them Ironborne at least make them like the Vikings or Barbary Corsairs. Instead we got a bunch of shit talking longshoremen.

    But what can you expect from a bunch of people that consistently look like they are covered in Seagull shit. Seriously, take a good look at all of them, they look like they get shit on by Seagulls all the time and don't bother to wipe it off. Hell their whole island looks like a toilet for Seagulls after they raided a Mexican picnic.

    Had to go with House Stark, not that I like them but the dire wolf is badass and the motto "Winter is Coming" has a very ominous tone to it like "things are going to get worse and WE are ready for it, are you?"

    The sequence of events presented on the show was an epic failure. The show hinted at a big story arc with one of the most badass monologues ever delivered at the end of season 3. It culminated with an illogical, and pathetic two minute scene.

    Yara took a group of their best mercinaries, and sailed halfway around the world to rescue Theon. They cut through the stronghold like a hot knife through butter, and made it to Theon in record time. Theon then bit Yara, some dogs were released, and they gave up.

    To add to that, the group was in so much trouble that they gave up, yet they made it back to their ship without an issue.

    Worst scene in GOT history.

    It was a poorly executed sequence in a show known for perfection. 99% of GOT fans realize this, so why can't you?

    Seaworth made the poll, and the Targs didn't?

    If you don't know your house sigils, you have no business voting. LOL

    Seriously! It's a crime this was omitted. The flayed man? That's as badass as it gets.
