Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 09, 2016, 11:44:14 AMThe way Tywin was so resentful of him seemed to go beyond his appearance or the fact that his mother died in childbirth. That would make a lot more sense if Tywin knew he wasn't the father.Found some good evidence here:https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-likelihood-that-Tyrion-Lannister-is-secretly-a-TargaryenExample from that link. Tywin says this to Tyrion: "You are an ill-made, spiteful little creature, full of envy, lust and low cunning. Men's laws give you the right to bear my name and display my colors, since I cannot prove that you are not mine."
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 24, 2016, 04:22:29 PMWe know Davos will confront Melisandre, in front of Jon, about burning Shireen. Things are going to be awkward in Jon's entourage going forward, so doesn't it seem likely that Melisandre will be exiled (perhaps voluntarily)?Then, maybe she goes on a bit of a wandering quest and learns about Daenerys being her faith's favorite as "the one who was promised." Remember Melisandre (wisely) told Stannis he should drop everything to deal with the white walkers? What if she eventually meets Daenerys and gives her the same advice? Seems like an elegant way to enlighten Dany's camp on this issue, rather than having Varys or Jorah randomly come back with knowledge.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 21, 2016, 01:32:18 AMI feel more confident now that Westeros could end up with a total matriarchy. Daenerys, Sansa, and Yara. Maybe that's what "breaking the wheel" means.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 23, 2016, 03:51:59 PMI think it's equally plausible that Littlefinger's chain of power plays might be coming to a natural end. Who even trusts him anymore? Not Sansa. Not any other Starks. Not Varys. Not Royce. Not the Lannisters, really. (I recall Cersei, not even the greatest of minds, being very skeptical in their last meeting.) The only person who definitely trusts him is a mentally deficient boy.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 20, 2016, 11:08:43 AMI think it's in [Littlefinger's] immediate self-interest to put his betrayal spree on hold and earn the Starks' trust for a minute. Obviously what he did in this ep was the first step in that direction. Of course he will try to cause more chaos... but wouldn't it be fun to see Sansa get one step ahead of him?
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 07, 2016, 01:10:53 PMHere's the logic problem for me right now, though. Presumably part of Margaery's plan is conceive a boy with Tommen. And the conventional wisdom is that he'll die by the end of this season. How can she be sure that's happened in that amount of time? Also, how can she possibly execute her plan before Loras is forced to confess? I'm seeing a long-term plan with short-term obstacles... or maybe I'm not seeing it at all.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 30, 2016, 01:17:32 AM[King's Landing] As Aegon said in Bran's vision, burn them all. Seriously. Margaery included.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 13, 2016, 12:42:27 PM[Arya leaving the Faceless Men] Were the series ending right now, sure it would be a pointless detour. But this is definitely setting up something important, maybe crucially important . . .In terms of what's next: "I am Arya Stark of Winterfell, and I'm going home" is a pretty strong indication of her sense of purpose. The question is, will she actually go home to Winterfell and be like "hey guys I'm a super assassin now, who do y'all need offed?" Or will she continue on her rogue's path, sowing death and chaos among the Starks' enemies?Furthermore, does the magic of putting on a face carry with her? Does she actually have that power going forward? That hasn't been made clear yet — or if it was, I don't recall. (Since Jaqen tells her "a girl is finally no one," I'm leaning towards yes.) If she gets to keep that, she'll be absolutely unstoppable.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 26, 2016, 11:45:02 PMDany's departure is significantly later than the other events. Which is good, because the Narrow Sea is... well... narrow, and she'll be there soon.
Quote from: Fernando on June 27, 2016, 01:25:39 PMYes it's narrow but they are at the southeastern part of the continent, as soon as the episode ended I looked up the map of Westeros and Dorne while is not close is the natural first stop on their way to King's Landing, so the timeline works for me too.
Quote from: Fernando on June 27, 2016, 01:25:39 PMmeanwhile Tommen couldn't take it and jumped to his death, Cersei actually took it a little too calm, reminded me the way Sansa took Rickon's. It'll be interesting what is next for her and Jamie.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 26, 2016, 11:45:02 PMThis is the best episode pair in the show's history, right? Is there a way to make Miguel Sapochnik direct all of them? Does he have a family?
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 28, 2016, 06:21:36 PMI wonder what Theon would say about Jon; I don't remember their interactions. Nor do I remember Tyrion and Jon. If Bran is in the mix by then, he'll be like "oh hey, it's Tyrion, the nice dwarf who made me a saddle!"
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on June 28, 2016, 06:21:36 PMDaenerys would be a fool not to take advantage of the incredible loyalty the Starks have in the North. (She can't be interested in scorching a bunch of northerners while trying to win hearts and minds.) Considering she's okay with leaving the Iron Islands semi-independent, the North by comparison is a dream scenario for her. You're dealing with this super honorable house with two leaders who are decidedly not power-hungry who are not raping or pillaging anyone, who yearn for an end to the chaos of Westeros even more than Daenerys does..
