Might have been posted before ....very interesting insights....8 years ....wild. Arya of course growing into the role and her life confidence.



I am listening to the Audible version on Book 4

I am watching the show up to Season 5

I am very confused ... :roll:

I'm hoping someone takes on Robin Hobb's world.

Just watched the latest episode. Not to spoil anything, but the Night King killed everyone except Sansa. And he tried to turn Sansa into one of them, but her love for lemon cakes was so strong that it overpowered his magic and reversed it and turned every single white walker into lemon cakes. The rest of the season is just gonna be Sansa walking through the snow, picking up lemon cakes, saying "Mmm, I love lemon cakes", and eating them.

It will be beautiful.

Hm. I watched the episode to and I know for a fact it also involved Bran, Daenerys, and Jon all staring with expressionless faces at the carnage around them. When Arya got stabbed in the heart Jon’s eye twitched for just a moment showing Kit Harrington’s diverse range of acting before his character bent the knee proposing to Dany who keeping the same lip-parted expression she’s worn for 8 seasons nods yes in a snarky manner. Because her character is supposed to be a badass.

But totally don’t read this if you don’t want spoilers.

Nods and winks for people who say, "I got that reference!" abound as S08E01 tries to bookmark S01E01 with mixed results.

None of that happened. But here, I got you a nice front yard, Will, for your HOUSE OF LIES!

Liked the first episode of season 8 well enough.
Things that stood out to me:
The rescue of Jara was a bit anti-climactic imo.
Danaerys seems to have been hit with plot stupidity/not learned anything when it comes to loyalty.
The scene at the Last Hearth was properly chilling.
Cersei doesn't seem to have much of a plan, at all, to do anything.
Given the numerous changes of loyalties and breaking and remaking of oaths, it seems rather silly to me that people keep insisting John Snow ought to rule just because he's the heir. Sam, made the only valid argument that's needed imo.

I didn't realise that was the Last Hearth. I was wondering why everyone was talking about House Umber being gone.

Having had a bit of time to mull over it I found the episode disappointing. The episode didn't get us any further than we were in the last episode. Too much talking for a show were dialogue has become a weak point. It's not much of a good sign when I just want to be able to fast forward to the battles because I'm bored.

We waited two years for this?

Was to be expected, need for recap and setting things up.

It wasn't a huge plot-moving episode. It was everyone finally meeting and reuniting. I don't know if it was just that I missed these characters or that the episode was good, but I really enjoyed it. The reunions were brief, but they told me what I wanted to know about what's coming. That chat between Tyrion and Sansa? :awesome:

To be honest it still makes me wonder why everyone is on the Daenerys bandwagon. Sansa asks how are they to feed the army and two dragons. Daenerys responds dragons eat whatever they want with a smug expression in her face.

Dany constantly reiterates that she is Queen, and people should follow her but doesn’t inspire leadership. Honestly a lot of what she says and does reminds me of Joffrey.

As Thomas mentioned, Theon making good on his promise to rescue Yara flew by in seconds and felt very anti-climactic. I was expecting more of this somehow. I enjoyed the episode as a whole, the reunions and necessary meetings, the poetic reminders of scenes from episode 1, season 1. It left me wanting more - no bad thing, apart from the fact that there are only five more episodes of GoT left.

I think a lot of the delay was for adding all the extra levels of complexity & detail to the pop-up castles in the titles.
