Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

Put me down for #teamCersei.

If Sansa ends up ruling the north I will disown this show forever.

Seems inevitable that right when it looks like all hope is lost in the real world and the walkers and dead are overruning everywhere at once, there will be some moronic Bran vs TNK battle in dreamspace or whatever the hell you call it and that is where TNK will be defeated which will resulted in all the white walkers melting and all the animated dead to fall over and become regular old corpses. There will probably be a white walker right in the process of stabbing Sansa when it happens, keeping her worthless ass alive.

I know Ramsey got ate by his dogs and all that but can we just get a reanimated partially eaten Ramsey corpse one time in our entire life, dealer?!!!

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

I mean there's 6 eps left and a hell of a lot of other stuff to wrap up. Seems like it can't possibly be a military defeat of the White Walkers. There just isn't time to do that and deal with all the aftermath.

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

That ^ is my fear as well. Or the wrap-up will be terrible because everything will be rushed with time warps left and right.


Also, hate to say this since I'm generally on their side, but feel like the feminist internet would ****ing explode if they killed off Dany. I feel like she is every casual fan's favorite character.

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

Is there a lot to wrap up still? Seems like they did away with most of the plots and it's all about the ww now.

from my perspective, the white walkers don't win because that would mean that we aren't here now.

Easiest prediction ever: They'll do a **** job of writing new characters and as a result the show will be insanely boring.

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

sounds like an era with some cool characters that def have potential, but one thing i heard made it sound like it'll pretty quickly get into the long night that lasted generations, which means that the entire series could be some dark as night horror show type ****

which visually is just kinda taxing to watch tbh

I can't wait to see how they built the ice wall to keep out the white walkers.

I just hope they hurry up and kill Cersei.

Not even because she's so repulsive, she's just an idiot.

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

Cersei is one of my favourite characters. She's more complex than she gets credit for. She was moulded into who she is by her upbringing. It's easy to write her off as an idiot but there's a lot more to her than that.

The whole Lannister clan deserve more credit. Jamie Cersei Tyrion and even Tywin deserve more credit

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

I think Tyrion, Jamie and Tywin all get a lot of credit.

Cersei, while I can appreciate she's a woman in a very much man's world, her high position is in spite of her, not because of her. This guy says it well:



Though tbf I think she's far from the biggest idiot:

Catelyn Stark. FML.

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

Robb Stark has the excuse of being like 15 or whatever, in book canon at least. Robb is less a character and more a subversion of an archetype. In books he is never a POV character (where Catelyn and Cersei are).

Grunch, my guess is the WWs get defeated at the end of Ep.2, leaving 4 episodes to clean up the mess. They just have to kill the NK, so Jon obviously defeats him 1-on-1.

Yeah, no way Dany lives and doesn't end up on the throne.

50%: Slush fund paid to anyone who dies in equal shares for season 8. Viserion and Night King have to be "destroyed" to die. Anyone who is alive and they become a white walker/wight are considered dead/have died. If someone like Tormund is to die, they have to either die on TV, or be strongly alluded to. If the are ignored, they considered to be already dead, and win no money.

10%: Whoever kills Cersei. If Cersei lives, she gets the 10% of the total pool

10%: Whoever rules the Iron Throne at the end of the show. Prize can be split

10%: First character of the 41 to die

10%: Last character of the 41 to die

5%: First person to speak in season 8

5%: Last person to speak in season 8



If I have made a major **** up, let me know (Il take on the minimums if no bids, otherwise everyone else is bidable, starting at bottom up, and I can bid if I want.
Update

We are up to Qyburn and the prizepool is expected to reach $20,000AUD betting on a television show, which is easily the most degenerate thing I have ever done, and I once entered a $5k in a variant of poker I didn't know to impress a girl

Qyburn auction is up to $335 and is in progress.
