GRRM should have not sold the rights to TV before he was finished. speaking of, he updated his blog. he's also working on the "GRRMillion" of all his notes. he's hoping the first volume of that or TWOW will be released in 2018. no, it's an actual quote. we may have the first volume of the GRRMillion before TWOW, and it MIGHT be in 2018

did you see the rifled fire ball whizzing by

jesus f**k

i know it's the director of barristan's death and the epic chase scene (why is he still a director) but he can only show what is written. oh goody, he is also directing episode 3 where we get to see danerys and jon snow together at last in the same scene. i wonder if we can contain just that much acting

only decent part of this was the pack leaving arya

i don't give a shit about spoilers on this i'm helping you: nothing happens. the entire episode could have just been the one part of it with the eunuch "having sex" with the hot chick. speaking of eunuchs, at least varys gets called out for his shit. sadly, he still has his head, because nothing of importance happened anywhere. oh wait, we find out what happened to hot pie: nothing. WHERE'S GENDRY? WHERE IS HE YOU SONS OF BITCHES

*spoilers but I don't care either at this point. Galt is right. Nothing happened*.

It really is terrible. This was maybe the worst episode of the entire series. The show...frankly sucks now. It's been on a sharp downhill trend since they ran out of source.

The dialogue is awful. Stilted, meaningless prattle. It used to be pretty good. The characters used to be interesting, their motivations were clear, the dialogue was solid. It was clever. There was life and vibrancy and wit. Now it's just a series of scenes where people I feel like I don't really even recognize or care about verbalize a bunch of cliches and cheap nothings. Even Tyrion just drawls stupidly. It's just bad acting, bad writing, and nobody cares.

Its basically a network TV show now. Edit out the superhot naked girl and some arterial blood spurts, and it could have been on NBC or Fox. They honestly aren't even trying. My god the editing was f**k lazy in that big "sea battle" sequence (where squared rigged sailing ships can simply go any direction they want). Half of it looked like rather incompetent green screen.

At least I got to see some Sand Snakes die. The only people I care less about than the f**k Iron Islanders.

it's a damn shame what they did to it.

in 20 years the remake after the books are completed (live goddamn you george, live!) it will be better. that's if we're not sick to death of GoT. there are five pilots of spin offs in the works. actually we won't be "sick of game of thrones" but more like, they will continue down this path where schemes and machinations are discarded in favor of epic ice zombie fights brah

preston jacob's head may explode after all of this, so i'm looking forward to his review

things i do think we'll see this season:

the field of fire 2.0
jaime taking down a dragon
the wall coming down
the hound returning to KL with a wight to prove to everyone what is happening (get. hype.)
* * * ICE ZOMBIES VS FIRE DRAGONS /// FIRE DRAGONS VS ICE ZOMBIES * * *
the raising of wyrm from the remains of a dragon
sam dealing with more literal shit

i fully expect scenes to be spectacular looking. and people like that, sure, but the show became a hit off the writing of GRRM you f**k. B&B are not untalented writers but they cannot cope with the immensity of ASOIAF. Very few can. hell, george is having a hard time with it, because george likes to have things have triplicate meanings and have things be referenced in ways that require you to read the books 10 times before you start to bring it together

I'm assuming you mean the hound is bringing a fire wight.

jon is a fire wight and I suppose he'll be there too

actually that was confirmed by GRRM the other day. he was talking about Dondarion being a fire wight, a husk. which means Jon is. which goes to my theory that Ghost is the Real Jon, knowing nothing and running away and why he hasn't been seen since the "Resurrection".

Well it was much better. Had some bad parts though but it was a huge improvement

Spoilers came out for whole season. Some ideas are really dumb but whatever, there's boatsex AND gendry

The dialogue was tight. The characters seemed themselves. That's what was really missing last week.
