Re Ned: Plenty of people dislike Ned but it seems to be more prevalent amongst readers of the books than anything. He wasn't without his faults, but I've always felt it somewhat naive to blame the major events of the series on his actions. You don't pluck a fish from water and toss it onto dry land expecting it to survive; so it is with Ned and King's Landing, a man far outside his elements.

 

His greatest mistake IMO was his disdain and disrespect for Jaime after he slew the Mad King.

I can't blame him for trying to do the right thing. Painting him as incompetent is wrong I think; he's run the North for so long so well which implies some form of political savvy but Ned tries to do the right thing because no one else will. He's burdened by what he's seen in Robert's Rebellion, he's tired of the fighting and I think his undying commitment to honor and justice is a form of repentance on his part, but even that is something he rescinds when faced with his family being jeopardized at the end.

I don't like him but I do wish his character would have been left alive or at least left with some honor after being killed.

He was foolish (in my own opinion) but his fate was definitely undeserved.

I think his greatest mistake was trying yo act with honor in s place completey devoid of it. That was also his strength, he tied his hand and limited his possible actions by playing by a set of rules that no one else obeyed.

That's what made his ignominious death so terrible... he didn't deserve it at all, but that theme is a common and powerful motivator in Westeros, often ending in doom for the seeker; the underserved death of Elia Martel and her 2 (?) children brought to us and took from us the Red Viper.

what; a girl and her uncle can't hang out and chat on the balcony?

I'm sure they're simply discussing the most efficient way to plow the snow around the front gate.

One of my favorite moments in the series still is the reveal that Littlefinger was ultimately behind every shuffle of power that happened in Westeros. He's the closest thing to an actual villain the series has, other than the Others.

That f*cking Littlefinger looks to be really stirring the pot.... 

 

Davos has it right though, "It doesn't matter who's skeleton sits on the iron throne."

Yo was that just me or was that a Sansa love scene?

Seems like The Mountain has some new armor now. This seems like it'll be a really great season, can't wait.

The Mountain looks tougher than before on that armour.

 

What if Ellaria Sand is poisoning Yara...? Could it be possible?

Looks like I need +- 50 days to come really fast now.

I'm not a huge fan of it really, feels a bit shoehorned.

 

GOT make the best season trailers I swear, so hyped every time

Nah. I think it's a perfect little side bit.

 

He likes beasts, she's a 'beast' of a woman. Plus I enjoy the comic relief, especially during the more depressing episodes.

 

 

but we also got a love scene between Greyworm and Missandei. this bitch knows he ain't got a dick right??

 

I thought it was just their balls that got removed?

Has it been proven that their dick gets lopped off too? I

 

E - I f*cking hate Littlefinger, I hope he doesn't turn Sansa against Jon. That'd be hard to watch.

balls.

dick.

 

either way the guy is useless for a sex scene and wouldn't understand what arousal felt like if it sat on his face and came in his eye. so good luck with the intimacy :lol:

It's that way in the books; similar to Chinese Eunuchs.

Oh man this pic reminded me of how hyped I am to see more Varys. He's an understated presence in the show but I think he's ultimately super integral to what made King's Landing so good for most of the show.

For sure. King's Landing has been my favourite focal point in the books and the show, a good source of both action and political intrigue. I hope we see the combination this season.

I'm not sure what plot line I'm most looking forward to this season, even though they are all starting to merge together. I think I might cry a lil tear if/when all the Starks reunite, and I hope a certain wolf turns up when Arya is in that forest...

 

It was apparently also 100% confirmed today that season 8 will only have 6 episodes ;_;

D and Ds have said they've only got about 13 episodes of content left, hence the shorter seasons.

 

They're going to be so jampacked though, I can't imagine there being much filler in the final two seasons!

Maybe it's because I haven't read all the books yet (still got a way to go, haven't picked them up in a while) but I just can't imagine how it's all going to end. I know we haven't got to season 7 yet, let alone season 8, but I hope it's not a cliffhanger, we need closure.
