Quote from: polkablues on May 20, 2015, 01:49:42 AMThe fact that so many people are using the "it wasn't in the books" line of attack is particularly telling. The implication being that if it were a minor side character in the same situation (as in the books), it would be more acceptable.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 24, 2015, 11:42:34 PMLast week, worst case scenario, I imagined that Sansa would escape this week, or that at least some measure of revenge would be carried out. But they decided to prolong and intensify Sansa's suffering. Imprisoned by day, beaten and raped every night. (The bruises were a nice touch.)
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 24, 2015, 11:42:34 PMThis is probably even more distasteful than last week. But I understand, Sansa is such a ripe target for twisting the audience's emotions, how could you not take advantage of that?And to what possible end?- To expand on Sansa's sufferingness? That's been a feature of her character so long, and it's now flooding out every other aspect of her to the extent that she's becoming a joke.- To convince us just how evil Ramsay is? It goes without saying, that task was accomplished long ago. Everything he does now feels redundant. He's also becoming a joke.- We get some kind of brutally righteous vengeance, made more satisfying by the duration and intensity of Sansa's suffering. Okay, I guess revenge is fun, but sacrificing Sansa's character doesn't seem worth it.- Sansa slogs through this continuing trauma and eventually ends up empowered on the other side. And she owes her self-empowerment to surviving and overcoming rape. From a storytelling perspective, this could actually be the worst result, and the one I feared when this whole disaster began.I literally cannot think of a way this can be redeemed. I think I'm pretty much numb to it now, though. I've stopped caring about Sansa's character. Part of me wants to just wait until this idiocy is over, consider it non-canon, and pretend Sansa is picking up where she left off.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 24, 2015, 11:42:34 PMThe rest of the episode was quite good. Tyrion meeting Daenerys was the most thrilling moment for me; I can't think of a more interesting or satisfying way for them to meet. This is the storyline where I need to know what happens next ASAP.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 24, 2015, 11:42:34 PMCersei's imprisonment was great of course too, watching that dread slowly come over her. The way it then played out was laughably unrealistic, but dramatic nonetheless.
Quote from: Fernando on May 25, 2015, 11:14:32 PMNever crossed my mind that Sansa would get something positive this soon, she's Ramsey's new play thing and he won't let go
QuoteLast season [Thrones director] Alex Graves decided to give me hints. He was saying, "You get a love interest next season." And I was all, "I actually get a love interest!" So I get the scripts and I was so excited and I was flicking through and then I was like, "Aw, are you kidding me!?"
Quote from: Fernando on May 25, 2015, 11:14:32 PMhowever, you did notice that she took something with her right? I didn't see what it was but I think it sounded like a little piece of metal, I think that could be used before this season ends, on Ramsey I hope...
Quote from: Fernando on May 25, 2015, 11:14:32 PMagree, first, why wasn't she guarded? even in the castle she's guarded! although I'm realizing that they don't aloud guards in there, nevertheless, she should had seen that coming, but she's so blinded by her "power" that she fell into her own trap.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 26, 2015, 05:32:18 PMI really couldn't guess how this plot will be resolved, so it's pretty exciting. As Cersei said, if Tommen sends the army against the Faith Militant, they could execute the prisoners immediately, or at least hold them hostage.Oh actually, here's my prediction... Petyr Baelish: hostage negotiator.
Quote from: Fernando on May 25, 2015, 11:14:32 PMLittlefinger again with his games, that young man he mentions to Lady Oleanna is Lancel? does he intend to incarcerate her too?
Quote from: Fernando on June 01, 2015, 01:35:19 PMAryaright now I don't really understand her story, I read somewhere that by the last episode everything will make more sense, she was by far one my fave characters but her last episodes have been a little dull.
Quote from: Fernando on June 01, 2015, 01:35:19 PMCerseiit's crazy but I want Cersei to have her revenge, she's evil and dumb but I want her to succeed on this one, how the hell will she get out?remember back in the first episode Qyburn had ''something'' at his table, I believe that is the mountain, will he use him for her rescue?
