    S01.E05: 03 Bonnie and Clyde

    Yeah they do, usually for the first year of recovery, precisely because of Rue feeling like Jules is her lifeline, if she pins all her recovery on the relationship, when the relationship ends so will the recovery, so while I feel bad an confused for Rue about Jules level of reciprocation I do think it's healthier for both if they just remain friends. Their friendship as is seems to be a good thing for both of them. Having said I think it's pretty difficult for teenagers in particular to not break this rule, and I do think it's more about pressures of a committed monogamous relationship than the vagaries of teen dating.

    S06.E08: The Old Man and the Anomaly

    I laughed so hard when Octavia was spit out of the anomaly "healed" but also beautified, no more dreads or Blodrina make up. I don't actually wish I had paid more attention to how Clark became a nightblood when the death wave came, but holy shit do I not remember anything about any of that. EMP? Luna became a monster? WTF? Josephine's dad is such a dick, one minute he's all now now Josephine, second chances you can have some other body of a person we kill by religious manipulation. The next he's all kill all those Earp MF's. Also I'm little disappointed that John wasn't playing Josephine and didn't knock her the fuck out while he had the chance.

    S06.E05: The Gospel of Josephine

    I know it's the same Gabriel which is why I said WHEN did he change his mind not why/how. He clearly already knows it's a shitty morally compromised thing to do in the video he looked tortured by not just the process of discovery, but the method and cost of overcoming death. I assume he did it only to save his dead girlfriend and then when the Primes decided it was an entire program/way of to live forever he tapped out.

    S06.E05: The Gospel of Josephine

    In a lot of genre stories immortality is morally corrosive. Mortality and reciprocity are pretty intertwined we need to survive so we work together, in communities, but why work to together to survive if you can't die or can come back from any death you suffer? I also assume they were all assholes to start with and Becca filled their minds with a superiority complex from the start. I am confused as to the exact composition of Elegius III they said their were 13 of them (which was the same amount of ships in space too right in the first season? ) There has to be some reason the non Nightblood's in Sanctum just happily go along with it. And also wonder when Gabriel decided what he'd done was wrong and he should destroy ALL nightbloods regardless. Eh I'm pretty sure it's gonna be like Get Out the other consciousness isn't "dead" or "erased" just dormant. There would be no way to map consciousness/identity scientifically. All they have to do is yank Josephine's chip out of her and she'll be Clarke again. I wanna know if the "old man' Gabriel is still Josephine's boyfriend, because I kind of can't believe fuckboi Rothenberg can resist yanking Bellarke chains by having Jo's boyfriend uploaded into Bellamy. Hopefully I'm wrong and between Murphy and Bell they get Clarke back.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I'm not mad at it, but he went all the way to KL ostensibly to reunite/confront/save Cersei but his first order of business is to kill his rival who would probably die by Drogon fire anyway? It's random.

    I actually thought I was gonna be able to watch this shit and laugh about it, but now I don't even think I'm gonna watch it.

    God fucking dammit. Why I am still not ready for this complete bullshit. Killing innocents, even after it's clear she's won, that's Dany for sure!

    Rape IS Graphic Violence? I wasn't aware there was an official rape specific warning HBO used.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    This fits with the trigger warning tweet and is further confirmation of the "bittersweet" garbage fire coming on Sunday.

    I hope Jamie flies like a monkey out of the shadows (like Arya) and pushes Cersei under the building.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Aw her reasoning contains so much logic and sense though I have no idea how she can see all she's seeing in those stills, or that every shot in the trailer will make it into the show. I hope she's right, but if the spoilers play out as expected I hope she's not brutally crushingly disappointed. Still from episode five.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    That is literally their job, it's why they are sent out to the press to sell the show to tell you it's good it's great you should watch. That many have been unable to mask their own disappointment/ambivalence is pretty telling (although like was mentioned it still could be an act in itself to lower expectations generally). Dinklage comments sound like a well practiced tornado of bullshit, a long winded complisult especially "a soft touch with some, a hard touch with others". Oh this thing they did wow it wasn't where I thought it was going, which is all the show needed to do surprise everyone with bell induced insanity.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    It is literally the most insulting bullshit not just to Dany et al, but to anyone with functioning brain cell. Jamie raping Cersei is bs because it wasn't in the book, but Sansa being raped by Ramsay was FINE though it wasn't in the book. Sure. I mean I'm hear to say both narrative choices were hot offensive garbage and neither made any "narrative sense".

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Oh man this part made me laugh out loud. This for sure seems like shipper leak, but fuck it at least here none of the characters are destroyed to fit some misery porn you get what you NEED not what you want assholes ending.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I have raged about their PoV/obsession with Cersei (and the Lannisters generally) as the tragic heroes of ASoIaF for 8 years now, at least they road that rail to the very end. I guess?
