    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    Seriously! I yelled at my screen when she asked that dumb question. Speaking of, my SO and I have this habit of yelling 'Dead' at the screen whenever characters really hit us in the feels, especially on a show like this where it's possible for them to die. For instance: Theon hugs Sansa - "Dead" Grey Worm kisses Missandei - "Super Dead" Brienne gets knighted - "Sir Dead of House Deadington"

    And as for the past, he has to actively seek it out. He didn't know about Rhaegar and Lyanna's marriage until he went looking for it even though he knew about them being Jon's parents.

    He wasn't describing the Golden Company, he was describing his own men. Sometime in either Season 6 or 7 it was mentioned that Euron cut out all of the tongues of the men on his ships. It seemed to be a myth but apparently it's true of the men on his main ship anyway (lest he was just joking). There is an argument that she could have simply kept them prisoner, if for no other reason then as strategic assets when two of her allies had been captured. But at the absolute minimum, she definitely should not have burned them alive with her dragon as the form of execution. As many have said here and like Jon, Tyrion, Jorah, and Barristan told Dany, the optics alone of burning non-combatants with dragons is terrible for the supposedly non-mad daughter of the Mad King.

    You would support Dany and her violent executions wouldn't you Drogo. But seriously, I'm not entirely sure she considered it at all. When Tyrion suggested something similar (putting them in prison) she immediately said that she'd already given them their options and she wasn't going back on her word about killing them. Tyrion (and ultimately Sam's) point was that it wasn't in any way necessary. Especially such a violent, prolonged, and painful death.

    This. All of this. Lest we forget: her feeding a man to her two dragons and "They can live in my new world or die in their old one" were several seasons ago.

    I really hate the way they've written Tyrion lately. I think the only thing that could save this were if Cersei isn't pregnant at all - she just used the idea of it to play Tyrion and Jaime.
  7. I've been thinking about that line a bunch since Season 2 resets a bunch of stuff and there's a big deal about Ramse being dead originally. I think the line works on 2 levels. If Ramse had died when he was 'supposed' to, his last act would have been to help Cole save Cassie, hence being a good friend. It also works with what the timeline is changed to where his last act is to help Cole save the world by taking Titan.
  8. Doing my own re-watch now. I'm still curious about how the timeline changed from season 1 to season 2 and how the loop resets. Anyway, I didn't realize that Olivia described herself as "a thing in a box" all the way back in season 1! And that Jennifer said "Climb the steps, ring the bell" too! And that Jones said she'd "take my last breath here (at the machine)." ETA - I've been commenting as I watched, hence the disjointed additions. All this takes place in episode 11 - Shonin

    S04.E11: The Beginning (2)

    Thanks much justmehere, both articles are a great read. The ending I choose is Terry's by the way but I can see how it might not be the same for everyone else.

    Cassie recognizing her was the resolution to that story - it's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gag.

    S04.E11: The Beginning (2)

    Totally agree! My only question right now is which Deacon showed up at the end? Did Jennifer grab Deacon before he shows up to take the facility in season 1? I mean that would be one helluva an acting job if he was pretending from minute one.

    Future-Cole has a control unit that can set the "when and where" of splinters ahead of time for the suit. That's part of how they were able to track and catch Athan last season. Jones demonstrates it in Season 3 - Nuture, and you can see Future-Cole pull it out of the suit when he's talking to Jennifer. As far as I can tell, he only had to be fast enough to catch her and press the button (or vice versa if he times the catch well enough)

    It was immediately after the credits. If you turned off the show as the credits rolled then you definitely missed it.

    Totally on board with all the WTF at Dom being mad at Darlene. I also did a rewatch of the previous seasons and Vera was very much alive last we saw him. Anybody else laugh their asses off at the axe-punctuated "Wheel! Of! Fortune!"? I mean it even sounded just like the opening to the actual show. No? Just me?

    Season 3 Discussion

    Meh, I'd have more of a problem with that if Ramse weren't willing to kill the entire world (including Cole) for a kid he knew for all of 2-ish days.
