- Game of Thrones – Of course it has Spoilers
I enjoyed the Princess Bride reference.
I missed that; what was it?
I totally got pulled out of the moment by pondering the practicalities of bareback dragon-riding. I mean, quite apart from the difficulty of holding on, you’d be hypothermic in minutes. They could be doing with some goggles too.Posted 4 months agoP-JayMember
I think Daenerys is too self-absorbed to suspect the truth about John. I mean, she’d love it if he were some kind of minor Targaryen (what with the whole historic incest thing) but how will she react when she finds out he outranks her? Hopefully not well!! 😀
They’ve certainly signposted a fall out between Danny and John, or whatever his real name is.
I think everyone saw that killing Dickon and his Dad was going to come back to bite her and she’s certainly showed none of her previous empty for the ‘common man’ when she bluntly told Sam he’d killed his Dad and Brother. No explanation other than they didn’t ‘bend the knee’.
She might turn out to be as mad as her Dad.Posted 4 months ago
When Ayra was talking to the blacksmith about her weapon etc… he responded ‘As you wish’ just like Wesley
Ah, hopefully they’ll do a new one every episode, getting steadily more blatant each time. Shame Wun-Wun isn’t still around to announce that he can only do the doggy-paddle.Posted 4 months agodonksMember
end scene …. SPOILER of sort…. shows the walker generals but no night king.. hmmm.. me thinks he’s flying down to Kings Landing to flame everyone and then resurrect them all for when his northern army get beaten in next weeks big rumble. This should make an interesting show down when danny and John march down there to take the throne only to find the night king and a tonne of new undead plus cercei (also undead). Reckon this may end with young Aiya killing the night king with her new fangled spear thing that she has had specially made. still no clue on who gets the throne mind.Posted 3 months ago
Y’all have the patience of a bunch of mewling toddlers. I’m enjoying the slow burn settling of accounts before the big rumble. Shame the quality of the dialogue can’t always keep up.
Right then: time to play Spot the Stiff. Who gets it next week? My money’s on:
1. The newly knighted Ser Brienne. By getting knighted, especially by Jaime, she’s got pretty much all she wanted, thus bringing her character arc to an end.
2. Tormund. Likely to go down swinging beside Brienne.
3. Podrick Payne. Less sure about this one, but becomes a bit redundant when Brienne gets it.
4. Theon. Again, feels like he’s reached the end of his character arc by returning to fight for Winterfell and saving Yara last week. I predict death by Night King.
5. Saddest of all for me: Dolorous Ed. I reckon it’s the end of the road for the smart-arse everyman.
6. Beric Dondarrion. The Hound’s reference to Thoros’s absence seems a bit of a Chekov’s Gun.
I’m not putting her on the list, but I also worry a bit for Arya.Posted 3 months agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
Happy enough with ep2, OK not a lot actually happened but the story line still developed a fair bit and Tormund’s scenes were great. Could have maybe done with a major character being killed off whilst off scouting or something but certainly didn’t need a big battle, that’s for next week.Posted 3 months ago

I think you’re right about Theon, sadly. His final redemption, saving Sansa again, or more likely Bran.
I reckon Ser Jorah’s time has come. He’s a bit of a spare part these days. As is Ser Davos, and Varys.
Plus hopefully annoying Greyworm and his missus.
Let the Helm’s Deep tribute act begin!Posted 3 months agochestrockwellMember
My wife has long thought Arya and Gendry were destined to get together and rule ever since Robert told Ned in the first series that his son would mary Ned’ daughter (Sansa and Jofery, obvs).
Agree with the big woman going down in a blaze of glory along with plenty of those around her, possibly to include Jamie.
Hadn’t put two and two together regarding Arya’s spear thing. It’s going to down the undead dragon, ain’t it?Posted 3 months ago
They are making sure how much the viewer has invested in all these characters before they start killing them. I’ve loved both of the episodes so far, particularly the last one, but I can see how the instant gratification crew might want a bit more.
What it does mean is that the budget for the remaining four episodes is epic!Posted 3 months ago

More likely that she’s setting herself up for a stealth suicide mission to off the Night King.

What it also means is that, after the big battle between the living and the dead in Episode 3 there are still three more episodes to fill so either the first battle is inconclusive and there needs to be a second, bigger battle or the living win and there needs to be a less exciting battle against the Golden Company to decide the fate of the Iron Throne
Either way, expect one more fight and lots more talking in castles.Posted 3 months ago
I always find that it’s best to hide from a guy who can raise the dead in an enclosed space full of corpses with swords.
Oh man, you’re right. It’s going to go full Jason-and-the-Argonauts, isn’t it?
I reckon Jaime’s going to get through this one, as he’s got storylines to tie up with Bron and Cersei.Posted 3 months ago
