    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    Yeah, I don't see why Sansa has to have Bran-level foresight to be justified in disliking Daenerys, as if the default should just be that they be besties. Dany had goals that were in opposition to Sansa's goals. They weren't friends, they had two enemies in common, but they certainly didn't want the other to get what they wanted. Why should Sansa's desire for an independent North be less legitimate than Dany's desire to bring all 7 kingdoms under her rule?

    Regarding the speech: Jon reacted in very much the way I'd expect someone who doesn't understand the language but hears the tone and a recognizable word or two to react.

    Inverse ninja law, but for dragons? I like it.

    Positivity post: for all the talk of Kit's limited acting, I could see him physically thinking "ugh, Sansa, why" when Varys approached him. And to Jon's credit, he did not vocalize this. It was a moment that he could have said something dumb and didn't; I could even see him working out the chain of actors (if Varys is talking about this to me, then the person who talked had to have been Sansa). But identifying her in the moment would have been foolish, so I'm glad he didn't do it.

    Didn't he? He got it all jumbled and out of order, but I thought there was a sequence where he sees Drogon over KL intercut with Aerys yelling "burn them all!"

    I think the quotes by EB are pretty dispositive. What is Varys talking about "trying again" if it's thwarted by Dany refusing to eat? Edit: looks like you already saw lol, I'll go back to shutting up
  7. She also flew higher in the sky and came down from basically on top of them, so as to obscure her descent with the brightness of the sun.

    So I pretty much expected basically this, though it didn't go exactly as I predicted and I was mildly worried that Jaime was going to choke Cersei. Glad to see that answer (whatever it may be) will have to wait for the book series. The only character I didn't want to die that I thought might die was Arya, and I spent the last half hour not breathing. There were maybe 15 times in that sequence that I thought she had died, but the only thing stronger than plot armor is Parris armor, lol. I do think I was expecting Dany to be the final boss a bit more readily than most others here, though, so I don't think I was as disappointed by that turn of events as others seem to have been. What was the final count for this ep? I've got Jaime/Cersei/Sandor/Gregor/Qyburn/Euron/Iron Fleet/Golden Company/a good portion of King's Landing, did I miss anyone? More later, I guess.
  9. Incidentally, he at least acknowledges this argument when he leaves.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    She probably considers Cersei easier to beat than Dany.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    I meant from the recent episode, not the Loot Train. Dany was in a rage and diving straight at the ships on Drogon's back, but thought better of it and flew out of the ballista's range. It looked like Rhaegal was incapable of doing that. If Sansa was simply lying and/or bluffing, it feels odd to have her say something that actually ends up relatively accurate. Dany blew her off, and now she's losing kids like her name is Cersei.

    Not just this, but we then saw Rhaegal get killed by the same bolts that the relatively hale and hearty Drogon pulled out of a falcon dive to dodge. Maybe it's because Dany was riding Drogon and Jon wasn't, but even that is because of Rhaegal being wounded. Either he couldn't get out of the way because his wing was injured, or he couldn't get out of the way because he had no rider, which was because his wing was injured.

    I'm glad you mentioned this, because it actually surprised me. I'm not even sure Sophie Turner was speaking English. Why would Jon think, okay, sure, close enough? In fairness to Sansa, she had already expressed at this point that she objected to the premise of the agreement, and I don't think it was fair for him to really expect her to adhere to it even once she knew what it was.
  14. I talked about Dany's expression when she burns Randyll and Dickon in another thread, and last night I was watching this scene. Dany's expression when fire is erupting behind her is pretty much identical to her expression when she is telling Tyrion why she's going to kill the Tarlys. It's similar, but not the same, as when she watches her brother's head hit the floor with a clank. Full disclosure: I'll never forgive her for how she treated Hizdahr. That was probably the turning point for me, especially when he died for her. Imagine Sansa dying for Joffrey.

    I mean, those three options might not be options for a large section of the population. Lots of them might not even know why the Sept blew up, even if they have suspicions. Even if they do, it's almost winter and people might have medical conditions that make it harder to hop up and move when you want to.
