He’s welcome to have that stance. Still, I don’t think anybody is saying the cast & crew didn’t work hard on the show - I’ve seen praise for them everywhere. That was never the problem, or the source of critisism. The rather lackluster writing was, though.
I can live with the ending over time, I think. I mainly hated how they butchered the way to get there.
As for the poll: the MCU, big time. I only saw a few, but I’m really done with superheroes, so I’m biased. I just think it’s time to move on, I want to see some variation in the average movie releases.
@Godzillavkk Harry Potter is aimed at children and teenagers. Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) at adults. It’s pretty obvious they deal with themes differently, and the fanbase of Harry Potter will be much younger (in average) I imagine than the one of GoT, so most of the fandom has not read much other things outside of their age group. It’s kinda funny though; every Harry Potter fan I know is also a fan of Game of Thrones. Guess personal experiences aren’t factual and you should look at the average, not just your own assumptions about how people might be like.
Daenerys has violet eyes in the books, and I’m pretty sure what Melisandre tells Arya is also in the book. So that means Daenerys was never intended in this prophecy or whatever youcan call it.
It’s not a new theory, though. It’s been around the books for years.
@Jesssmoonn who says it was the exact time? They might have been waiting there for a while. Plus it makes perfect sense for Cersei to send troops to Dragonstone to await Daenerys, as it is the latter’s ancestral home. I was actually more surprised by the fact that Cersei hadn’t thought of that in S7. Also, the thought of Sansa wanting Cersei to win the war (cause that’s what she would be working towards if she passed on information on team Daenerys) is absurd. Sansa was the only one in S7 in the North who even bothered to mention Cersei as a threat. She would never stab her family in the back for that woman.
I agree this is strange. Especially considering fighting on dragons was actually normal in her lineage even for women (Aegon the Conqueror’s sisters, for example, also had armor and took Westerosi locations in their brother’s name). I find it a shame, actually, considering even Sansa has a war-like gown this season and she won’t fight at all, so I don’t understand why the costume department didn’t think of this.
So if abolishing slavery means communism, does keeping slaves then means capitalism? Because that wouldn’t be too different from what we currently have lol
@Dom2224 I know. I just said the sending-the-Martell-prince-to-Daenerys part of the plot was pointless. And yes, you could have used those character’s stories to continue the Martell plans, that is entirely correct. That’s my mistake. I must admit I don’t remember all the details that correctly; DWD is my least favourite book because I feel it drags so much, and I remembered the prince part because it pissed me off immensily, as his story proved to be going nowhere and him dying kind of felt like some sort of meme that ASOIAF seemed to become; blindly slaughtering characters, no matter whether they have already had actual use or not.
@Dom2224 I highly doubt that. Cersei has people she can’t stand murdered, either by backstabbing or ordering them killed while they’re there. She blew up the Sept of Baelor. She has zero fucks to give about what people think of her.
Daenerys doesn’t get rid of people simply because she disagrees with them. Jorah betrayed her, and she exiled him, where Cersei would have undoubtedly tortured him to death just because she can. Tyrion is with her; he will make sure she won’t fly of the track. And Daenerys being a mad Targaryen isn’t true, by mere continuity: Targaryen madness seems to skip the next family member. The Mad King had it, Rhaegar hadn’t. Viserys had it, so Daenerys won’t. Another reason why she won’t go mad is because the plot simply can’t handle it, with only six episodes left, so I wouldn’t keep your hopes up.
@Freaky Ass Smile Lord That is true, but with what you said, they have already improvised, exactly like you want to. The Dorne plot was indeed butchered, but apart from that, there was not much different stuff that could have been done. And the sending-the-Martell-prince-to Daenerys plot was pretty pointless to begin with, as he literally dies in the same book and hardly contributes anything to the story. So I was actually glad they cut that, because the Martell plot to gain the Targaryen’s favour was basically done by then, at least in text. It must have been insanely difficult to come up with a continuation from that point onward.
Aquaman, because he will cheat with water powers.
If Jon wanted to be King, he would be my number one throne contender, but he doesn’t want to be. So Dany is my second choice.
