  1. This is intended as a thread for the broadcast show spoilers. I decided to add book talk spoilers as well, since it's highly unlikely someone would click on a show spoiler thread and object to some relatively minor book spoilers. Mods please switch it around if you wish. Just found a pretty big spoiler in a general article about the show, obviously the reviewer has seen at least one more episode than we have. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/05/22/a-cunning-adaptation-of-the-handmaids-tale Since it's a first post I'll do the caution thing here, this is a show spoiler, not just from the book, so stop now if you don't want to know. Note, that article also includes book spoilers. - - - Wow, they really are bringing him back. I'm not sure how I feel about that, hopefully he's realized by now that men taking care of women is seriously not the point here and grown up some.

    Big Little Book Talk

    This is a thread for book readers to discuss the book freely without worrying about spoiling non-book readers.

    Palimpsest: Novel vs. Show

    Your Novel Vs. Show Topic!
  4. I love watching Sansa learn, and adapt, and survive. I also like that her Stark/Tully strength comes out more like her mother's does: she uses courtesy to keep her head and her place, hides her feelings, and works for her own ends in the back channels.

    Brienne of Tarth: The Oathkeeper

    She is one of my favourite characters in the books and I love the actress they chose to play her. It's always good to see a female character in a show like this that is smart, battle worthy and vulnerable. I also love her dynamic with Jaime

    Comics Questions and Info

    Here's a topic for questions about the comic and how it (may) relate to the show, I tagged it as spoilers but this isn't a "spoiler" topic for actual show info, just spoilers in the sense that these themes and stories may be played out on the show.
  7. I know it's technically not the end yet, but it's obvious that for most of us this final season has sucked. And since the petition to get it remade probably won't make a difference and we can't count on GRRM for anything, let's try for something more constructive: let's all share how we would have done this season. What would we have done differently? Would we have kept anything the same? I have my own ideas, but I want to see some other people's at first.
  8. Here is our topic to discuss the books all the way through volume 8, Tiamat's Wrath. Here there be spoilers!

    Jon Snow: He Knows Nothing

    Oh, also he's a crow and a bastard, in case you hadn't heard.

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    Episode Synopsis: Daenerys arrives at Winterfell, and Jon Snow gets some big news. Reminder: There is open air book talk here. If you are just watching the TV show and you don't want to stumble into any book talk you should leave now. Book Talk assumes you have read all the books to date. Any information from unpublished books, such as preview chapters should be in spoiler tags.
  11. Hell, I say let him have the iron throne. He's smarter than pretty much anyone else fighting for it.
  12. On the comic book front, I WANT to read the comic books! But, my oh my, my budget does not support getting back into comic book collection. Issue #1 is available for free from Kindle, but it just leaves me wanting the rest -which aren't free (huh, it's like Amazon planned that, or something...)
  13. Why'd they make Stannis such a religious zealot? Why'd they make Robb's wife such a completely different person? Why'd they make Reek's origin story such a thing we had to watch? Discuss.
  14. Ghost: survived E0803. He charged with the Dothraki, but I could swear I saw him in the crypt later. Anyone else? Nymeria: Anyone think she will come to kings landing, or was Arya's encounter on the road the last goodbye? Any of the others survive? Bran's: maybe? doubtful. Robb's: no Sansa's Lady: no Rickon's Dog: no

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Episode Synopsis: TBA Reminder: There is open air book talk here. If you are just watching the TV show and you don't want to stumble into any book talk you should leave now. Book Talk assumes you have read all the books to date. Any information from unpublished books, such as preview chapters should be in spoiler tags.

    Bran Stark: I'm Flying

    I don't think the show did a very good job with Bran's story this past season (other than "The Lion and the Rose," which, unsurprisingly, was written by GRRM), but Bran's journey has been one of my favorite parts of the show. I think the first few seasons were the most powerful, as we still saw him with his family, and at Winterfell. Isaac Hempstead Wright added such emotional power to scenes like Bran begging Theon not to kill Rodrik. Even last season, when he had to tell Rickon goodbye, we saw some of this. Season 4, there was his almost seeing Jon again, but the rest was a little too disconnected emotionally. I sometimes hear people say Bran is arrogant or that he uses the people who are with him, and I can understand that to a point, but he's also a boy who was slowly but surely left behind by everyone he loved, and now only has an identity based on prophecies and what he thinks destiny wants to be. He had to make that break once and for all when he left Jon behind, and I wonder how much of his humanity will be left.

    Arya Stark: Valar Morghulis

    Maybe the toughest of all Starks. Good place to link to one of my favorite Tumblr posts.

    S08.E00: The Last Watch

    HBO blurb:. Airdate 2019.05.26 In this topic you may discuss this episode with book references. If you want to discuss this episode without book references, your topic is here.
  20. Use this thread to talk about the upcoming novels including the teaser chapters from TWoW that have already been released. The latest excerpt is called "Mercy." It's an early draft of one of Arya's chapters that Martin has since rewritten. http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/

    Who Should Sit The Iron Throne?

    So...who do you think should sit the Iron Throne? Who do you think will sit the Iron Throne? Post any suggestion that you want. It can be serious or silly (Hot Pie for the Iron Throne!). You can even use deceased characters or characters who have forsworn their lands (Whitecloaks, Blackcloaks, exiles, etc...). You can make this character king or queen x years after or x years before the series. If you want, you can extend this idea to your ideal Small Council. The positions, if you may have forgotten, are: Hand of the King Lord Commander of the Kingsguard Master of Law Master of Coin Master of Whispers Master of Ships Grand Maester
  22. With confirmation that spin off ideas are being worked on, this is the place to speculate and discuss them. Any news or spoilers about these can go in here too.
