    His girlfriend has a banging body, so he better keep up.

    Nina introduced them first, trying to play matchmaker between them.

    What's the matter with you? Franco is awesome! Drink the kool-aid, will you? Be susceptible to their form of brainwashing and join the cult of CO77X. Resistance is futile!

    Nik is also Charlotte's cousin via Valentin.

    That's because men are written as being the sensible ones while the wimminfolk behave like idiots.

    I don't know what's worse, that Sam seems to be completely ignorant that Oscar is living out his final days, or she would be told about it and just continue on with her Shiloh business as though nothing's happened since the writers refuse to write her in any scenes with Drew. But I really just want this storyline to wrap up. I just can't with the Joss/Oscar pairing and call me a jerk, but them writing a song together is so cheesy, it borders on annoying. Anna can fall down a pit now. Stop with weepy!Anna already, writers. So over it! Dear Dr. Neil, you should see barware shatter. You should ask Sonny to demonstrate. He's good at it. Oscar and Ned did share scenes during Christmas or maybe Thanksgiving. They even sang together. I don't think they had anything beyond that. This is my gripe with this sort of storyline. He is going to die and we've had no bonding moments with him and Michael or him and Ned. If you're going to ask him to plan your funeral, then I'd think that sharing more scenes together would be important. He named Jason the executor of his estate, but they haven't shared any scenes since. Sam and Oscar, nothing since that birthday celebration. If you want to kill off a character and have viewers feel the impact, maybe you have him share scenes with other people that aren't his girlfriend.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    If the GC attacks Winterfell at the same time or before the AOTD shows up, then the odds that the GC flips and ends up fighting on Winterfell's side are good, I think. Euron would have handed Jon and Dany more men to fight Cersei.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    If Tyrion supposedly betrays the Starks, has anyone brought up that he might try to kill Bran because he becomes worried about what he knows? The Tyrion we see is pod!Tyrion. Cersei isn't smarter than Tyrion. And neither is Sansa. The only thing I can say in his defense is that we've been told over and over that Cersei's one redeeming quality is her love for her children, so it's possible that Tyrion thinks that as well. Now, though, I'm not sure she was ever pregnant at all. She could very easily have lied about this to manipulate both Jaime and Tyrion. Jaime is gone from her side and she wants him dead and Tyrion, she's always hated and she still wants him dead.

    I love Chase. That is all.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I think that's an important callback. Protecting us from grumkins and snarks. They're about to be hit by an army of them. I felt like the reason Bran wanted Sam to tell Jon right then about his parentage was because he wanted Jon to know before Jaime's arrival. I think Jaime will be important to Jon's endgame. But who knows.

    Ghost? What is this "Ghost" you mention? I have no idea what this thing is. Has there ever been an animal more aptly named than him? Ghost might as well be a ghost for all the times we've seen him.

    First book. Arya says that she can ride a horse better than Sansa and run a household. Sansa had never had much of a head for figures. And when Sansa is asked if she knows how to write by Cersei (so that she can write that infamous letter), she reflects that she was better at reading and writing than her brothers but that she is hopeless with sums. (I'm in the middle of a re-read right now)

    Because the writers don't know what to do with him. He is fighting with a 13 year old boy, tries to pick a fight with Laura and is lying to Nina. Brad has been to DoD twice and I don't even know what to think. Did he hate Jason that much before or is this a new thing? Jason to Carly: There's no one more important than you and Josslyn. Honestly, I don't know why the writers insist on wanting this jerkwad in a "relationship" or wanted him to have children. Everyone who isn't his girlfriend/ex-wife or sons is more important. He's got to be the character I hate the most on this show.

    When is Melisandre joining this party anyway? Next episode? Never?

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I don't know if Sansa would have dibs on the Dreadfort. I think her marriage would be invalidated because Tyrion was still alive. The marriage was never consummated, but it wasn't set aside either. As far as the Twins go, Arya killed the men, IIRC, so House Frey through the female line would still be alive. Barring that, Edmure was married to Roslin and she was pregnant, so the Frey lands might just go to him. I'm assuming his titles will be restored at some point. I don't think D&D thought about any of this or the laws of succession and they will make up their stuff as they go, if anything.

    For me, Jaime will forever have been regressed for sticking with Cersei for so long. In retrospect, it seems he killed Aerys for less than that. He is an able commander, we know that. And I would have said that once he finds out that Jon is Rhaegar's son, that he would do all that he can to keep him safe, but then, the show never addressed anything with regard to that relationship or the guilt Jaime feels for having failed in his mission to protect the children from Gregor Clegane.

    Sure, but Bran told Sam last season that he was the only one who knew the truth of Jon's identity, even though we know it's not true. If they were intent on bringing Howland Reed, I think they would have waited before they sent poor Meera who deserved a hell of a lot better than this bullshit off screen forever. ETA - I think that's the whole reason they had Jon ride Rhaegal before they found out anything. When the truth comes out, Varys and Tyrion and Davos saw him flying and they and Dany will understand the implication of that right away.

    I don't know about the show since I tend to just block a lot of things, but by LF is not at Riverrun when this happens. He was sent back to the Fingers. It was after his duel with Bradon and he got really badly injured by him and Lysa becoming pregnant. Whatever he knew on the show, we won't know now since they killed him off.

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I hadn't realized this bothered me until now, but sending Ned Umber back to last Hearth was actually a bit insane in retrospect. They knew the Wall had been breached and that the NK has an undead dragon now. Last Heart is the first castle south of the Wall and is logically the first one to fall, but they sent the kid back anyway to continue packing his foodstuff and his people. It's a total nitpick, but wouldn't it have been more logical to send a raven and just tell the people to get what they can and evacuate, that they would be met with wagons and horses down the kingsroad or something? The whole reason Jon decided to let the wildlings through the Wall was to deny the NK fresh bodies for his army. Also, I don't know if we're keeping count of the houses that are going bye bye, but the sole heir of House Umber (in the show) is now gone and his house with him.

    I wouldn't count on the show to provide the answers you're looking for. I seriously doubt she and Rhaegar were running away together. I think Aerys found out about her being the mystery knight at Harrenhal and sent men to have her arrested and things just happened afterward.
