    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    “I will say I wanted a better death.” In the penultimate episode Cersei was crushed by falling masonry along with her brother-lover Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). It was an underwhelming end, to put it politely. “Obviously you dream of your death,” she says. “You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn’t have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb.” https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/jun/16/lena-headey-cersei-death-game-of-thrones-the-flood-interview

    Our Favorite GOT Moments: It Is Known

    Tywin's nonchalence about Danny's dragons seems inconsistent with his statement to Arya in Season 2 that "Aegon Targaryen changed the rules" with "...an attack from the air with dragon fire" Perhaps that's yet another inconsistency from Team D&D. Or perhaps Tywin didn't want to show any vulnerability to Joffrey Or perhaps Tywin had enough short and medium term problems that he figured leave dragons for later. In any case, turned out neither Joffrey nor Tywin needed to worry about dragon fire

    Jon Snow: He Knows Nothing

    Do you know where they said that? I ask because there wasn't an Inside the Episode for the final episode. It might have been mentioned in The Last Watch episode and I missed it (I didn't pay full attention).

    Ser Pounce = Azor Ahai: will Tommen’s kitten save Westeros? Amusing tongue-in-cheek video from the Alt Shift X crew, who put together a lot of thoughtful videos. I first became aware of them thanks to @Umbelina posting one of them in another thread

    Perhaps I need to watch it again, but for whatever reason, I haven't found it that interesting.
  7. I disagree Cersei's Season 6 story was fan service. But if it was, they at least laid the foundations for it, and her behavior was consistent with the character At the end of Season 5 Cersei was released pending further charges, but if she been found guilty of those charges she would have been executed. There is no way Cersei would let that hapen. Not a problem since her champion, the Mountain, would almost certainly defeat anyone else in trial by combat The Sparrow finally gloms on to the flaw in his plan when he sent Lancel and a bunch of other sparrows to take Cersei back to the Sept. Lancel says there will be violence unless she comes peacefully. Cersei refuses, one of the Sparrows attacks the Mountain and is promptly gutted like a fish Shortly afterwards Tommen, no doubt prompted by the High Sparrow, prohibits trial by combat (convenient no?) Now Cersei is backed into corner. This is when she is most dangerous and most ruthless (such as what happened to Ned Stark in Season 1). Cersei asks Qyburn to investigate a rumor she heard (from Jaime). Qyburn tells her, onscreen, that the rumor is true. Then comes the destruction of the Sept. Getting rid of the Tyrells and Uncle Kevan was just a bonus from her perspective.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    I had the sense the were friends due to proximity, more than anything else (and because of their similarities, eldest daughter of highest lords, traditionally girlish in manner, etc). That said, I'm not sure how often any character thought about a friend when they were separated. How often did Arya think about Gendry or Hot Pie? When did Jon mention Sam except in very utilitarian terms (dragonglass on Dragonstone)? Which doesn't mean they weren't friends, just that there's a limited amount of time, so the writers may not have felt investing time in such scene was worthwhile.
  9. VOX: Daenerys was right: King’s Landing had to burn - Westeros would’ve been better off with her on the Iron Throne.

    I suppose that life is irregular - Samwell Tarly That explains why Sam opted for Bran

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Many of the council members had no business being on the council Arya's an accomplished killer, but nothing suggests she's suited for governing, particularly considering her disdain for alliances. Plus, there should be only 1 Stark on the council. Not 3. Bran is out to lunch Sansa doesn't care about the South, so she shouldn't be making any decisions for it Gendry is totally inexperienced as the newly installed Lord of Storm's End Edmure sold out his men, his uncle and his homeland. Davos is a minor lord whose power derives from serving others. He is not one of the most powerful people in the land. Even he aknowledged he shouldn't be there. Still, he has more sense than the rest of them put together (excepting Brienne), so I don't really mind. Brienne is pledged to Sansa, another member of the council. Slight confict of interest. Nor has anyone suggested during the entire run of the show that Tarth is particularly powerful. Plus, she has little experience governing. But I don't mind for the same reason I don't mind Davos being on the council. Sam's suggestion wasn't practical. Nor do I think having an oathbreaker on the council is a particularly good idea. These people should lead by example. Otherwise, it's just cronyism all over again The lords who compared their subjects to dogs and horses.

    I guess we'll never find out if Tyrion acquired his own vineyard.
