Quote from: Sleepless on May 05, 2016, 09:40:08 AMWould have liked more from the Tyrion/dragons scene - it felt like it has no resolution. Based on his speech immediately prior, I was expecting him to either set the dragons free or at least start to bond with them. I felt that the "if I ever have an idea like that again..." line undercut the whole thing and made it seem like it really didn't matter.
Quote from: Sleepless on May 05, 2016, 09:40:08 AMAlso - even though Dany is now going to be imprisoned (??) didn't the respect otherwise shown to her contradict what we previously learned about the Dothraki and how they treat the widow of the former leaders?
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 05, 2016, 10:20:33 AMHe was only saying that as a quip because it was a scary experience. That was absolutely an important scene. It heavily hinted that he's half Targaryen. And now he's basically the uncle of dragons.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 08, 2016, 11:05:38 PMI know GoT is working when I'm genuinely angry that the episode has ended. Why not another hour? I have a legit free trial of HBO Now; am I not entitled to more?
Quote from: Drenk on May 09, 2016, 06:35:15 AMalmost nothing happens in this episode.

I even heard this said about last week's episode, in which an absurd number of things happened. In which two of the most powerful men in this universe were assassinated. In which Lyanna Stark was introduced and Jon Snow came back from the dead.What more do people want? Are GoT fans really so fickle that they freak out when there's one quiet scene? I sincerely don't understand this phenomenon.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 08, 2016, 11:05:38 PMJon's story worked the best for me in this episode. I don't know how that could have been done better — every step felt pitch-perfect. I especially loved Jon's awakening. The execution scene was fantastic, too. Is it bad that I was excited to see Ollie die?
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 08, 2016, 11:05:38 PMReally not sure who to root for in King's Landing. My head tells me that Olenna Tyrell is the most legit person there, but my heart wants Cersei to slay all her enemies and bathe in their blood. Surely they must join forces to defeat the church.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 08, 2016, 11:05:38 PMArya's scenes are barely holding my interest. Perhaps it doesn't enthrall me that her progress is mostly achieved by being beaten with a stick for a long time. I'm not sure it's working as intended... just seems a little substanceless. Maybe it's one of those things that will be more interesting in retrospect, once we see where it's leading.
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on May 08, 2016, 11:05:38 PMSpeculation spoilers:Yet more movement toward R+L=J. So close that they're almost showing their hand. I hope the reveal will be subtle enough. It could be an impossible task to please everyone, i.e. those who may not remember Ned dropping a hint in Season 1, and those who are impatiently expecting a very specific thing.
Quote from: Drenk on May 09, 2016, 10:55:19 AMBut I do think that they're stuck.
Quote from: Drenk on May 09, 2016, 10:55:19 AMBut they could have done way better with Sansa.
Quote from: Fernando on May 09, 2016, 11:12:56 AMJB, what hint are you talking about? I only remember Ned mentioning to Jon that he will tell him about her next time they see each other, right after Jon goes to Castle Black and Ned is heading to Kingslanding.
Quote from: Fernando on May 09, 2016, 11:12:56 AMI don't get the speculation that Tyrion is a Targaryen, there hasn't been any hints (as far as I remember) in the show or the books, last week scene with the dragons was even explained by Tyrion, dragons are even more intelligent than men he said, at least to me that doesn't mean Tyrion has Targaryen blood.
