    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    The only reason I can think of for them to throw Tyrion in jail for a few months is that, for whatever reason, D&D want to time his trial to fit with another event. Dany giving birth could possibly fit if you assume she’s already a couple of months pregnant but doesn’t realise. Although that still seems odd because it’s not like they couldn’t delay the trial for a few more days if she went into labor.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Whatever Robert believed (his line in the books about "Rhaegar has her now, while I am stuck with Cersei" may point to him realising the truth, on some level), it was not his choice to wage war. Robert remained quietly in the Vale until king Aerys explicitly demanded that Lord Arryn delivered both Robert and Ned Stark to be executed. That was Aerys' own doing, possibly aided by untrustworthy advisors like (book) Varys. It's a puzzle, Friki is generally proven yet it seems hard to see the betrayal at this point. And while Friki did not retract his leak, it's not certain that means he has info (from his proven-to-be-reliable source for episodes) confirming his earlier info. After HBO took action against him, Friki can no longer post spoilers anywhere so would his source still even take the risk to continue to supply material? And if Friki did got info for the later episodes, would he take the risk of pissing off HBO any further by even hinting at confirmation or denial? Sansa did not say the north will never bow to Dany, though. She may be angling for a decent price though, just like Dorne's independence needed to be bought in the end: with a proper marriage alliance. Other have already suggested it, but Sansa might be attempting to pressure Dany into seriously considering that option. Marry Jon to appease the north, and do herself a pleasure in the process. Sansa does not know about Jon's parents yet, but that would only increase the need for a solution as the competing claims would be unified (and Jon is still the chosen king in the north, son of a Stark). I wonder if Tyrion and Bran talked about what needs to be done in/to KL, as a variant of the "Bran-them-all" theory. Would be great if Gendry survived. As show-Gendry also has elements of book-Edric Storm, he may end up as a legitimised Baratheon.
  4. Lexi looks pretty here but I'm not a fan of the pose. Maybe it's me but it looks awkward & "posed".

    In my hometown, it wasn't just rich parents who bought their kids cars. Anyway, I would say Jana has been working for her parents for a long time providing child care, filming the tv show, etc.

    I think Margery saw him as her path to becoming queen. Stannis was already married.

    3 p.m. reruns- 1,000 Beer Bottles Clean-Up!-Aunt/plaintiff made the huge mistake of renting a house month-to-month without a lease to her nephew (her sister's kid). Aunt/plaintiff was living in Las Vegas, and came back to Harrisburg, PA to care for her terminally ill mother-in-law, and gave nephew/tenant notice to quit. Nephew said he was looking for another place. Aunt/plaintiff told nephew to move out, said he was moving, and then sublets said they weren't moving after nephew moved. Aunt saw the house with beer bottles, trash, dirty dishes, everywhere, so aunt did notice to quit, and then had him evicted. Plaintiff's husband supervised the house, when he got out of prison, and then went back to prison. Nephew says he had permission to sublet from uncle. JJ doesn't believe what plaintiff claims district court told her to do, which is have the police evict them, because they had no lease, but were paid up, month-to-month tenants. Bills for cleaning up trash, and estimates are submitted by the nephew. Nephew didn't pay August rent, but didn't get the place cleaned up. Nephew claims she changed the locks after he moved out, Aunt says she didn't. The sister/mother of nephew is defendant's nephew. I bet Thanksgiving is fun with this family. Nephew claims he had to move out on 1 August, claims that Aunt freaked out when he was going to move his last load of stuff, Aunt went nuts, and damaged his car. Aunt claims she was holding a dining chair outside, and removing the trash out, and claims nephew was piling trash outside. Aunt claims nephew attacked her, and threw her to the ground, Aunt also claims the house took days to clean out, and was revolting. Plaintiff gets $500, defendant gets $250 for car damage by plaintiff. Shot in the Knee?-Woman plaintiff went camping, and alleges that defendant shot her in the knee with a pellet gun, or BB gun. Defendant claims the woman is exaggerating her injuries, and suffering. There are text messages from the defendant saying he's the one who shot the plaintiff. There is a witness who saw who shot the plaintiff, and defendant starts trying to lie his way out of this. Defendant claims the woman wasn't carried to her car, and is claiming she wasn't hurt that much. Plaintiff gets $4,000, and her insurance didn't cover emergency room for some reason. Save My Business!-Plaintiff sues former friend for repayment of a loan for $5,500, to save defendant's business. Plaintiff has proof of the loan, and check was deposited by defendant. Defendant was selling her business, and needed to get up to date on building lease to transfer the loan. They never did a promissory note. Defendant admits she received the money, and repaid nothing. Defendant doesn't seem all that repentant about not paying the loan either. $5,000 to plaintiff. (Warning, there are two new episodes tomorrow, and there is a dog case in each episode).

  11. Castiel was brainwashed by fetus Jack into thinking he was super duper specially good. It was a major plot point in season 12. The Winchesters discussed it and were worried about it. Cas himself brought up his high Hope's for the good that Jack could do. So... Cas still believes in Kelly's influence and whatever he saw when fetus Jack vision overwhelmed him. To be fair this is a brutal storyline. He was their de facto son. Jack signed his death warrant with that conversation about the "unfortunate accident" however. If Cas had heard that he might understand better exactly how Dean feels. Dean's mind is made up. Sam sees the parallels between him and Jack like he did between him and Nick so he is pretty uncomfortable with everything especially Dean' right about now. I think he is wondering how close Dean came to killing him.

    Uh, I was also thinking he had dyed his hair. It never occurred to me that the difference was a hairpiece. For some reason, I think it must be a Gary thing, not a Tony thing. Yet you'd think that another character on the show would mention it.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    If Jon and Dany marry, they become 'one flesh' and so technically a betrayal of the one is a betrayal of the other. While I'm not so sure as I was that Dany is pregnant, I still think it may happen - and if so, Jon wouldn't let their current partial estrangement with the news he's her nephew and the heir to the throne before her keep him from making sure no child of his is born a bastard. Such a wedding wouldn't be the joyous occasion it would have been before Jon found out he was a Targaryen - Dany will likely remain distrustful for quite a while, regardless of the political necessities that oblige a marriage, and Jon isn't likely to forget she's his aunt, as well as the fact that she distrusts his motives in telling her he's the heir. And Tyrion would observe that and think maybe it's best and safest for Dany if he finds some way to get rid of Jon. Then again, the pace is so damned slow these past couple of episodes that it's hard to imagine enough time will pass for Dany to even realize she's pregnant before almost everybody dies and the entire series is over, so maybe there's no pregnancy, wedding, or anything else.

    KW/Felicia just gets more beautiful with age. I loved the top she was wearing today.

    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    I think that was different because though he never sought the title any more than Robb did or than he did at the NW election, the titles and all they stood for still meant a lot to him, and some part of him did want that recognition after spending his entire childhood jealous of Robb. Ruling all Westeros, not just the North, holds no such meaning for him and I think he'd feel as unsuited to the iron throne as Ned did.

    Did Margery really think Renly would make a good king, or did she see him as her path to being a the Queen? Brienne seemed devoted to Renly because the the kindness he showed her in her youth. That said, Renly did seem to have a bigger, popular following than Stannis because he had a better personality and more friends and political connections in the capital

    In Beth's case, I would call it lustlife. It's terrible the way Beth drags Bryn into her unhealthy relationships. Then afterwards, poor Bryn is left with nothing but what must be confusion. This is exactly what Jason is trying to damage control.

    Who is Natalie? You mean Valerie? LoL I'll admit that I didn't see Harmony being Willow's mother coming. But I guess it makes sense because I have read stories where cult leaders had slept with all the female members of a family.

    Are we supposed to think Shiloh believes Sam's lame acting? To me, he is on to her but is calling her bluff and if he gets to see her boobs then it is a bonus for him. Seriously Sam is just so unbelievable, if we are supposed to think Shiloh is sucked in, that is just the worst writing/acting ever.

    That's right.
  21. Every now and then someone will come here and post about how you have to have a large bust to be a DCC. Swimsuit pics like the ones above are the reason why that question always makes laugh. Same thing when someone posted the other day they hoped Kelli wasn't encouraging the women to get breast enhancement. There are SO many small-busted women on this team, and they look good that way. That's not a shot at Christina, because her body, her choice, I'm not going to drag her for her decision. If she likes the way she looks, that's good enough for me. Meanwhile, I can't imagine the kind of smoke and mirrors that go into the team photo and cameos to make them all look bigger up top.

  24. I didn't like "Star Trek" when I first saw the reruns as a kid. It took the 1980s movies for me to appreciate them. Somewhat. But even after all of these years, I don't have a high opinion of them in compare to the other shows. And after years of watching the Trek franchise, I really wish that Gene Roddenberry had never created this rule that Humans have evolved in a space of 200 to 300 years. I find that illogical and in the end, I suspect that it proved to be a hamper to all future Trek shows. Also, I was not impressed by the series' third season. I'm still not. The writing for "The Original Series" seemed to spiral into a decline by this last season. It was easier for me to watch "Star Trek: Next Generation" . . . at least for several seasons. I don't really like Season One that much. Otherwise, I enjoyed the show. But I found Jean-Luc Picard and his crew a little hard to swallow at times. like "The Original Series", I believe that "Next Generation" went a bit overboard in presenting Humanity as evolved. And I found it difficult to keep up with the last two seasons of the series. Like the first season, I was not that impressed by it. And I think some of the episodes, like "Chain of Command", were vastly overrated. I had started watching "Star Trek Deep Space Nine" on a regular basis . . . at least during its first two seasons. Then I stopped and became bored with the show. It took me several years to watch it on a daily basis. I thought the series had the potential to be the best. But I noticed a few things. One, it reminded me too much of "Babylon 5". When I heard of the accusations that it had plagiarized the latter show, I was inclined to believe those accusations. I still do. More importantly, I think "Babylon 5" was able to take its ambiguity a lot further than "Deep Space Nine" was willing to. And once the series went into the Dominion War . . . I found it increasingly difficult to stay with the series. There were aspects of that arc that I enjoyed. There were other aspects that I found frustrating . . . especially the early Season Six arc about the Dominion's occupation of the station. I was also frustrated by the transformation of Gul Dukat from a multi-complex villain to a one-dimensional antagonist by late Season Six. I don't think "Deep Space Nine" really lived up to its potential. I had avoided "Star Trek Voyager" like the plague for several years. I heard that it was awful and considering my struggles to keep up with "Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine", I simply did not want to bother. But during the beginning of the series' early Season Five, my sister convinced me to watch the show . . . and I became hooked. In fact, while watching Season Five, I began watching the show's earlier seasons on Syndication. And I became even more of a fan. "Voyager", like the other shows, had its flaws. I'm not a fan of Season One, aside from a few episodes. It seemed too much like "Next Generation". But once the series stopped trying to portray its characters like ideal Starfleet officers (aside from a few), and it delved into its own brand of craziness and ambiguity, I really enjoyed the show. Aside from Season One, I'm not a fan of Season Six. There were a few really good episodes, but it seemed like it was going through the motions. It least to me. On the other hand, I really enjoyed Season Seven and especially the series finale. I tried to enjoy "Enterprise". I really tried to embrace this show. I did not mind that it was set right before the creation of the Federation . . . in the mid 22nd century. I enjoyed the relationship between T'Pol and Trip Tucker. I also liked the Dr. Phlox character. There were a handful of episodes that I enjoyed. I really enjoyed the Xindi story arc of Season Three, but I hated how it ended with the ship being thrown back into Earth's past. I loathed Season Four, but loved the Mirror Universe two-part episode, "In a Mirror, Darkly". To this day, I think it's one of the best Trek episodes I have seen. But overall, I'm not a fan of this show. I had heard so much negative aspects of "Star Trek Discovery" that I was inclined not to bother watching it. But I bought a television that allowed me streaming . . . and I watched it. And loved it. It was in serialized form from Day One. Most of the characters were very ambiguous. I also loved how it set up the antagonism between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. I do wish that Michael Burnham had served as Discovery's commanding officer. On the other hand, if that had happened, I would have never been able to enjoy her tale regarding the Federation-Klingon War or the Mirror Universe arc. Unfortunately, too many fans seemed put off by the fact that Sonequa Martin-Green was the show's leading actress and started making demands for more "traditional Trek". And there were fans demanding that the show connect to the other Trek shows when it was UNNECESSARY to do so, when it was in its early season. Worse, the show runners listened to these idiot fans and gave us Season Two. I didn't hate it. But there were aspects of it that I disliked - mainly the presence of a very dull Christopher Pike (who practically reeked of a traditional Trek leading man), which I felt was so unnecessary and the Season Two finale which drastically pushed the series into another direction . . . when it was unnecessary to do so. I have no final feelings about "Discovery". So . . . I don't know. My two favorite shows so far are "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager". I'm not claiming that they are the best of the franchise. There is no best, as far as I'm concerned. But they are simply my two favorites.

    Bethenny & Jason: The Divorce Showdown

    I mean, I've followed this thread long enough to know that your issues with Bethenny aren't just about this one guy. That's fine, I understand you don't like her. But not every action she takes is endangering Bryn and not every action that Hoppy takes is just because he is soooo confirmed for Bryn's welfare.
