man the night after the long night was longer than the long night and far more boring.

Also Dany turning up with 80 folk outside kingslanding isn't that intimidating.

But it gets better:
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Well, I saw the new episode today. I'm all over the place, TBH. It should be obvious that Cersei doesn't care about the people and that she wouldn't surrender. Cersei should have known that NO ONE in their right mind would surrender to her. That parley was POINTLESS. Then again, a lot of them are.

Jaime is making no sense. No wonder the actor was asking the writers what the characters motivations were!

I'm gunning for NO ONE sits on the throne. NO ONE. Gah. I need to unpack me fee fees before saying anything more. TBH, maybe I'm ambivalent about Dany because I see a little of myself in her.

So there really was a Starbucks coffee cup on the set. Wow...I didn't notice.

I think the level of incompetence, or else the genius of that product placement, is egregious on a good many people's parts. Especially the actors and actresses... really didn't notice?

EDIT: I haven't watched yet and, as I said, I'll probably binge it when it's done but they've really pissed on GRRM's work as far as I can tell - again the actors and actresses: you *really* didn't notice the dive in your scripts?

I can tell you what they likely did notice.  The number of zeros on their checks and the fact that they still cashed.

I read the actor playing Jaime kept asking for direction, what's my motivations why am i doing this? However that was written by an anonymous person on reddit so probably didn't even happen. I will still pass this dodgy info on though.

I heard about that too and I'm actually inclined to believe it. And then, there is this(SPOILER):

When you find out that Arya death scene was actually plagerised from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

That looks like straight up copying to me.

actually it's a totally generic way to kill someone in media.

Music was really good. Although a five minute build up to someone not quite getting through a door when i was expecting either- dragon attack, full scale invasion of kings landing to start seemed a bit weird.

I don't even know what to say any more.  Anything that might be decent and meaningful is so ensconced in nonsense that to disentangled it would be to arrive at essentially nothing in the end but some tropes.

You mean these show writers don't have any original ideas and are just bartering on tropes and cliches?  Shocked I tell you, shocked.

This is me after everything:

I have yet to see Episode 5, but I have seen the leaks and the ones I feared the most turned out to be true.
