Where are you guys getting all these supposed quotes from GRRM about season 8 because I've looked for him commenting on it and I can't find anything.

 

He took the money and ran a long time ago, he considers the books/series 2 different entities....he doesn't GAF

Sounds terrible to be honest. There's no way he gets anywhere close to Dany. No one on her team even knows him, and the only time they've seen him was when he was there to lead them to the meeting with Cersei.

They'd most likely execute him on sight if we're being realistic. 

True.  I'm just worried that Tyrion is going to die and am trying to imagine what ever deus ex machina  mess they could use to save him.

I'm expecting Tyrion, Grey Worm, Dany to all die.

I'm expecting Jon Snow to live, but I wouldn't be surprised if he died.

Sansa, Gendry, Arya, Tormund and Samwell will be the only characters left and only because 4/5 of them won't even be in the episode I presume.

I think is no way Dany lives, Grey Worm for sure dies.  Really hoping they'll keep Tyrion around and the monarchy will be abolished or will become a symbolic monarchy with Jon as king,  I can see Tyrion leading a council with Sansa and Davos and others, democracy is installed.  

Dany is going to go join Drogo and the baby in the afterlife, as per her vision.  Wonder what is going to happen to Drogon.  

Definitely glad that Tormund has avoided dying thus far.

The hound is the best character, and you have some nerve after you called Ser Jorah your boy. That dude was literally a cuck the entire series, guarding the door while dude after dude plowed the love of his life.

Feel like I watched a different season than everybody else cause I thought season 7 was great. Season 6 and Battle of the Bastards were probably peak GoT tho.

Question 

 

Why did D&D just remove the  Stark (Jon included)  kids connection to the direwolves?  

cos it hasn't really been part of the TV series the same way it was in the book?

It’s easier and cheaper to write down the word direwolf on a piece of paper than it is to cgi one onto film.

I had lunch last week with a female colleague of mine from Serbia who can best be described as smokin'.  Had a good old catch up on GoT; talked about how we loved the flickering lights from the swords going out, how Arya killing the NK caught us by surprise, and how we had no idea what would happen next but there had been some awesome stuff already this season and we were looking forward to the last two episodes.  We didn't mention character arcs or CGI once!

Yesterday, i ended up having lunch at a weird time, so ate on my own.  I was set next to these two random neck-bearded virgins who looked like they barely washed, and never went outside for more than 30 seconds at a time.  I overheard them bemoaning how the characters were not behaving as they should, how there's no way Arya should have killed the NK, how Jaime and Cersei's death was all wrong and how it just wasn't true to the original and they felt "betrayed".  The phrase "character arc" was used at least every 10 seconds.

These two lunch-time GOT-related encounters have led me to a clear conclusion about the fora.  Basically everyone commenting on this thread falls into one of two categories.

Whilst people like myself, 12er, TC, Sober, and surprisingly, TUF, clearly prefer the company of beautiful Slavic women, posters such as Clegg, DoomPatrol, Bruno and NoCake are much more comfortable dining with other like-minded and like-neckbearded nerds.

This has been a startling revelation.

I actually heard it from King Colby when he said Tyron f*cked it up by fighting Marty.  Colby said the politics would sell the fight.  He's the MAGA cat and Tyron was "A liberal snowflake and a soy boy."

Lol I'm gonna ignore the cheap dig earlier and just say this is a great take.

 

On reflection of the last few episodes I actually quite like what they've done I just think the execution hasn't been excellent. I'm surprised people didn't see Danny's heel turn coming as she's been a ****ing whack job for a long time. I actually loved that (ignoring the clear issues with the dragon etc) .

I'm also gonna be controversial here and say I actually think George's writing has straight sucked for the last two books lol.

These naggers complaining weren't around for the final seasons of "Lost" or "Dexter". No jimmies were given quarter then either. 

I'm content with most of the characters handling barring Bronn, Bran, and slightly Varys. Bran took up way too much screen time over the last 8 seasons just to do fook all in the end. Varys and Bronn deserved better, but people wanting their favorite characters to ride off into the sunset forget what GRRM did to some of their favorite characters in seasons past. Imagine the nerd rage if any of the remaining characters went out like Rob, Catelyn, Oberyn. 

I'm also taking comfort in the trailer for the GoT documentary where the director says "that's a wrap on Dany's final scene". If she made it to the end, I would assume they would say that's a wrap on GoT. Jon and Tyrion are going to Eiffel Tower her.

I kinda think they could have done better with the Mountain's appearance when he took off his helmet, I was as disappointed as the first time I saw Return of the Jedi and Vader's helmet came off only to reveal a fat, bald, old dude who looked like an egg.

wtf is a character arc?

i'm assuming it's a term relating to the progression (or regression) of a character, their traits, their behaviour, their actions etc. throughout a movie or tv show?

so, in other words, a character arc, is a character?

people are genuinely moaning because a character isn't 'doing' what they think should be shown?

somebody needs to do the world a favour and blow up the internet.

this thread is mint btw, only here could insults be thrown at each other because people have differing opinions of a ****ing tv show. lol. lol x2000. proper lol thread.

I don't want to get too pedantic here, so I'll just say that a character arc in fiction is more or less what changes the character undergoes throughout the story. This can be a rise to greatness or a descent into madness, for example.

Martin said: “I’ve been so slow with these books.

“The major points of the ending will be things I told them five or six years ago.

“But there may also be changes, and there’ll be a lot added.”

 

 

They literally went with the ending he told them about years ago. Your complaint is that the dragons weren't invulnerable? Seriously? How would invincible dragons steamroll everyone for the last season be entertaining? The moments leading up to the attack were very tense because it seemed like either side could actually win.

 

 

George said it, not me. But I do concur with him. Killing them while they are downed is the way to go if the opposition doesn't have dragons of their own. There have been hints in the books that once one guy offered to kill a dragon which was sleeping but he wasn't given the permission to try it.

Just how good the dragons (and scorpions) are varied wildly between episodes. I agree of course, that the odds should have been even for the fight to be suspenseful.

That didn't have a single one of the quotes that people have been throwing around, and he's also speculating years ago about the ending as far as I can tell. That's not a recent interview.

He also explained that they've been 97% faithful to his work, but you can't be 100% faithful, and he also confirms that he told them the ending and he doesn't expect theirs to be much different from his own.
