I enjoyed Ramsey.
So did his dogs.
He was pretty smart and good at the playing the game, but like Oberyn, his arrogance got the best of him. It was pretty idiotic, militarily speaking, to fight Jon’s army in an open field when he held Winterfell
He had the battle won though. Neither Ramsey nor Jon expected the army from The Vale to show up when it did. Anyway, while Ramsey was despicable, he was always interesting.... as compared to Cat Stark.
Yeah, but he lost his entire army in the process. He would’ve held the north indefinitely and had an entire army to boot had he just stayed inside the walls. Had plenty of food, too
Melisandre is so ridiculously cocky for seasons two and three.
Over and over she falls ass backwards into success and smugly credits her god.
Such a well written character
I agree with you.
That dark spirit offspring tho. Spooky as shit. No wonder she believes. She’s also ancient imo and has a long history of seeing the Red god’s power at work.
Them titties were definitely ancient
Yeah in that confrontation between Davos and Stannis, Stannis keeps going on about how Davos is crazy to deny her god after he saw the shadow man she gave birth to.
There's a difference between magic and gods, Stannis, gosh! I'm basically convinced there is no higher power or powers in the world of ASOIAF. Just a bunch of people who can do magic and that power comes and goes in intensity with the seasons.
There's only one god and his name is Death.
I also subscribe to the theory that the Iron Bank of Braavos and the House of Black and White are two halves of the same coin.
And what do we say to the God of Death?
Not familiar with this theory.
I'm sure there's some videos on it. Alt-Shift-X probably has one.
Basically the bank funds the House of B&W (if not outright controls them) and uses the insane prices the Faceless men charge to keep their coffers full.
I thought Ramsey sucked as a character because he is more or less just the anti-Jon Snow. I haven't read the books but the tv show writers just made him the most psychotic asshole possible, like Gyp Rosetti in Boardwalk Empire. Boring. I thought the actor did a good job, though.
Currently starting season three on my first re watch.
I don't understand why Cersei let Tyrion send Myrcella away without a fight or why he wanted to. Granted I took a bit of a break from S1-S2 in my rewatch and may have missed something
His motive, I think, was simply to assure Dorne’s supprt of the Baratheon crown in a troubled period. Also, he probably wanted to heal the rift between the Martells and the Lannisters caused by The Mountain’s/Tywin’s heinous act.
I have no idea why Cersei allowed it to happen, unless she understood that it would severely damage her ruling son politically if she killed the deal.
He was the acting hand of the king, she didn't really had much say outside of murdering him back then
To your point, especially bc Tywin was alive and Cersei fucked up managing Joffrey
That was the most power Tyrion ever had, leading up to and through the battle of the blackwater
Why she didn't fight it? No clue
Why he did it- he planted rumors of sending Tommen and Myrcella to three different lords through 3 different sources: Littlefinger, Varys and Grand Maester Pycell. Pycell was given the Myrcella to Dorne idea and he ratted to Cersei. Tyrion was looking for a rat on the small council and found it in Pycell while strengthening relations with the Dornish.
My GF started watching the show from season 1 past month or so. Missed the red wedding scene and her reaction because i was at work. But we just watched Oberyn vs The Mountain. God that scene still hits in the feels.
Thats part of it, but he did actually send her there. He knew that eventually if Robb made it far enough south that other houses would take up arms against the Lannisters especially if they believed the rumors of Cersi and Jamie being the parents and with the Martells already not liking the Lannisters that they would go against the Lannisters also. So if he traded off Marcella the Martells would back the Lannisters and give them another allie.
Just finished the purple wedding.
Rest in pieces you odious little shit.
Lady Oleanna with the slightest of hand...
Pedro Pascal is such a smooth badass in season four.
Hated to see him go. Wish the show had gone a totally different direction with the Dorne storyline. Elaria and the sand snakes are the worst part of the show, imo
That's true but Oberyn was perfectly handled. Excellent writing and acting. Every aspect of the Kings Landing storyline in season four is absolute perfection.
Season four is the show's peak, imo. Season Two was better than One, Three was better than Two, and Four was the best of them all. Five-Seven had great moments but season four was perfect from beginning to end.
in december i decided to finally give in and watch
season 6 is both the most intense and greatest single season of television
Winds of Winter might be my favorite episode of television ever
watching arya slice walder frey was even more satisfying than seeing that little shithead joffrey killed
It's a big step up from season 5, but nothing beats season 4 for me. Some of the dialgue and speeches in that scene are legendary. Oberyn talking about meeting Tyrion as a baby and vowing to be his champion gives me chills every time. Same with Tyrion on trial and going off on being hated for being a dwarf.
Tywin gets a few killer lines in too.
The Tyrion and Jaime scenes in season 4 are as good as it gets
Varys to Tyrion
"Cersei has offered a lordship to the man who brings her your head."
"She ought to offer her cunt. Best part of her for the best part of me."
"The dwarf lives until we find a cock merchant."
This show is so great.
Bronn’s laugh when Dickon corrects Jaime on his name murders me every time
bronn is hands down at the top of the list of second tier characters
him referring to baelish as twat beard had me rolling for a good 10 minutes
Just finished rewatch of season 1. Lord Tywin Lannister's 1st scene .
End of season 1 Joffrey gave Harrenhal to Janis Slynt, yet during the Catelyn-Tyrion seen at the Inn where she takes him prisoner, one of the knights was from Harrenhal and Catelyn asked about Lady Whent. Anybody remember what happened to her that Joffrey would just give Harrenhal away?
Also it was summer in the riverlands where the Lannister army was but you could still see their breath. It's going to get COLD all over Westeros this season.
Tywin is still my favorite character
Doing a re-watch as well. One thing I completely missed on is that Danny has no issue with drogo pouring molten gold on her brother because she was testing him. She’d figured out that she was unburnt every time she was around fire and hadn’t seen her brother do the same. So either her brother proves he really is a dragon or he proves himself unworthy and dies.
Feel dumb as hell that I missed it on the first watch.
He is no dragon
Harrenhal gets passed around more than Ros
Everyone loves the size of it and its location but no one wants to deal with how obviously cursed it is.
Also has crazy expensive upkeep
That’s no way to talk about Ros.
just this guy’s take on it, but goes along with what I was thinking about benjen and what he may have known about Jon. From a series of videos originally posted by bigpig
Arya: He killed Lommy
Hound: What the fuck’s a Lommy
Arya: He was my friend
Arya: He stole my sword and put it right through his neck. ...needle.
Hound: Needle. Of course you named your sword.
Arya: Lots of people name their swords.
Hound: Lots of cunts.
Everything about the Hound and Arya was solid gold.
