    S03.E06: Household

    I can't help it. Every time I hear the words "High Commander", I get an image of 3rd Rock from the Sun, head slapping salute and all.

    I will give this a try, but I have to say I am not entirely convinced.

    Good bye, and thanks for all the fish! (wait, I'm messing up my genre phrases here!) Live long and ... (no, no, no....) One ring... (NOPE!) Farewell, spoiler fiends! Winter is coming!

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    From reading the books, I have always thought, as many others did, that Jaime will end up killing Cersei and fulfilling the Valonquar prophesy. And that they would die together. And I think I know why D&D decided to go with the die together part but not with the Jaime killing her part. I'm an avid reader, have been so since I learned to read, and there are some patterns and story arcs that you just know before the author reveals them. While reading the books, I guessed many of the developments that came to pass (R+L=J, for example), some developments I didn't guess until the characters did (Joffrey engineered Bran's assassination attempt), and I thought some developments could go in several different directions (i.e. the information provided was not enough to guess). In the matter of Cersei's death in the books, I'm still convinced it will be Jaime who kills her. But it will happen a lot sooner than in the show, probably in the next book (if Martin ever finishes it). Since D&D loved Lena (and Cersei) and wanted to keep her character around until the end, they could not have Jaime kill her in the penultimate episode. Why? Because Jon will kill Dany in the finale, and we can't have two guys killing the queens they love because they have become monsters in back to back episodes. Jaime killing Cersei would diminish the impact of Jon killing Dany. If I am correct, then this is one more character development moment sacrificed at the altar of their weird Cersei adoration (and I'm not even a Jaime fan!). Sigh! I think it's sad that the show will not stick the landing. But, oh, well. life goes on!

    S17.E10: What Do You Care About?

    Sebastian is probably referring to the fact that all of our DNA is made up of the same molecules. The sequencing and pairing of the molecules is different in each one of us, thus leading to different eye colours, variations in height, skin tone, etc. Identical twins are actually the exception, they both have exactly the same DNA, which is why every single crime procedural out there has done an episode where the criminal is an identical twin and the protagonists have to figure out another way to prove their guilt, other than DNA. Here's an article that explains DNA, for anyone interested in learning more. This quote explains what Sebastian was referring to: In most Latin American countries, the high school curriculum includes the mandatory study of Biology and in your last years of high school this includes material that is taught at US college level in classes named Intro to Biology or Biology 101. But I agree Sebastian's hashtag was confusing, as DNA itself is not the same for all of us and saying #=nucleotoids would be a colossal miss (clearly, most of the general audience is not that well versed in Biology). That said, I loved his dress, and think he should have won,

    If all Tyrion wanted was for Jamie to convince Cersei to surrender, why did he provide them with a boat to escape?

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    The reviews are pouring in, and most don't seem to be very positive. I liked this one from VOX https://www.vox.com/culture/2019/5/13/18617316/game-of-thrones-season-8-episode-5-recap-the-bells-winners-losers They hit on the general feelings I have regarding the apparent direction where the show is going and this writer has accurately guessed that Jon will kill Dany in the finale, although he thinks Jon will then be killed, which is not what is happening as per the spoiler source that has been accurate so far. I particularly agree with this part: And I snorted at this: It made me remember this one time I was in a shopping center and this little girl ran past me and her mother followed yelling: "Cersei, stop that, right now!!"

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Adult content sometimes is used to refer to conversations about adult subject matters, such as child abuse, incest, drug use, etc. It is basically a catch all for anything that while not explicit, image-wise, would not be appropriate for younger viewers

    S16.E07: Carne!

    The ingredient he used in excess was the seed oil, which apparently wasn't tightly capped (cap fell into the blender when he was making the dressing for the tartare, and a bunch of oil followed). He added the gum to counteract the amount of oil, but that failed.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    In the books, all the Stark statues have swords and direwolves. I am not sure if the same is true for the crypt on the show, though. And I can't remember if Lyanna's statue had a direwolf when Robert visited it with Ned
