John Coal’s Game of Thrones thread in exile

Post your views about what's on the telly-box (not about transvestites, unless it is a programme about transvestism, and even that is borderline unless there are also ladyboys).

It’s why plot was so lacking in continuity.
The scripts for each episode were written by different people. And they were directed by different people.
Someone in charge should have coordinated this, but they fell down on the job.
At the end of Episode 5, Arya was covered in dirt and ash. Her face had huge scars and blood streaks. She famously rides off on the “pale horse” of Revelations.
Episode 6. “An hour later”, she is wearing clean clothes. Her is clean. No blood on her face. No horse.
Question. Continuity?

How about Grey Worm smugly executing prisoners one minute and then appearing next to Dany Bois, before Jon Snow made it to the top of the steps? Could be different days, but JS seemed like he was heading to an audience with Danaerys after the argument...

Was Jon Snow supposed to be the one delivering Bran's speech? The uttered lines seemed like something he'd say...

I wish someone would've punched Grey Worm in the face! Maybe he'll waste away from butterfly fever on Naath...

So. It may be worse than I thought. Maybe they had different writers and directors for each scene.
And the “continuity guy (or girl)” was an intern with no power. :cry:
Oh well. As long as “they” were bound by GRRRRRR Martin’s published books, they could stay relatively on track.
When they were on their own, all hell broke loose.
Sand Snakes. >cough cough< First sign they were on their own. What an abortion.

From 2016: Game of Thrones' Dorne storyline — and why people hate it — explained

The groan-inducing cheesiness of the Sand Snakes has been well-litigated elsewhere, but perhaps the biggest disappointment to fans of Martin's books is the showrunners’ decision to omit Doran’s secret pro-Targaryen plot entirely. This revelation was a hugely satisfying moment, and it seems odd that the show decided to nix it in favor of simply having Doran killed off.

Now, Benioff and Weiss know more about where Martin is going with this story than I do. Perhaps they concluded that the Dorne-Targaryen alliance isn't headed anywhere interesting. Their changes to the Dorne plot also could have been fallout from their apparent decision to cut the aforementioned new Targaryen claimant ("Aegon" a.k.a. "Young Griff") and his accompanying storyline entirely.

Much can go right when Benioff and Weiss decide to diverge from Martin's books — everyone seemed to love last year's entirely invented "Hardhome" episode. But overall, the disappointing Dorne storyline is a reminder of how diverging too far from the source can go very, very wrong. And it's a challenge the showrunners will have to work through again and again, now that they've all but run out of Martin's published material. Hopefully they can pull it off.

:lol:

Funniest callback or Easter Egg, or whatever they call it.
Roose Bolton embraces Ramsay. “You will always be my son. My first born son.” Ramsay stabs Roose.
Jon/Aegon and Danaerys embrace. “You will always be my Queen.” Jon stabs her.

It all makes sense now.
Sam = Sam
Jon and Arya are Frodo. They cannot stay in the land that they saved. Jon can also be Galadriel, because even though he passed the test, he went North rather than West to diminish.
The Iron Throne is The Ring.
And of course Danaerys is Gollum, although I would prefer Emilia Clarke in a nude scene over Andy Serkis.
Sansa is the Queen IN the North, rather than Queen of the North, because that is such a Holy Roman Empire solution. Is the King/Queen in the North still an Elector? Will they need a Pragmatic Sanction since Bran cannot have an Heir? Or can he?

If the Night’s Watch was wiped out, who were the Men in Black who escorted Jon to the Wall?
Why didn’t Grey Worm execute Jon?
