Do you mean Kevin Eldon? Fuck how did I miss that.

 

Which two does he play? Are you sure it's not the one character?

I think he was in the play that Arya saw (where she was assigned to kill the actress in it for the Faceless Gods) and I believe he was also on the receiving end of a Gendry Hammer Smash, playing one of the King's Landing guards, who came over to inspect Davos' boat.

LOL (completely realising we're living in post-LOL WATMM with "likes", "thanks" and "haha" icons underneath posts)

lol fair enough. I like ridiculous shows like that though. I stopped did stop watching at season 3 .   I need some way to boost my confidence.

that horse was an uber that bran sent for arya.

I do remember both those appearances of his actually. LOL!!! BTW did you know there has now been three mountains?

 

I found this pretty comprehensive article on the recastings in the show, usually I'd say the new actor is better.

My favourite of which is the addition of Max Von Sydow as the Three Eyed raven. Such an underrated actor IMO.

I predict The Night King will be returned to his human state and become a kind and just ruler of all seven kingdoms. Jon Snow is too obvious, The dragon queen is too obvious. 

 

 

 

 

I think one of the more interesting developments as of recent is how the north in general reacts rather negatively towards Daenerys and Jon bending the knee. I can totally see Sam spilling the beans about Jon's heritage and who knows, maybe the final encounter will actually be Targaryen vs. Targaryen, that could be interesting. Anyway i can hardly imagine D going "OK luv u take teh throne while i make queen pie" after all she went through. Jon on the other hand doesn't seem too keen on being a leader but maybe he could go vendetta mode if D kills Sam off or something... Yeah.

 

Also i still miss Charles Dance.

pretty awful episode. only thing that got to me was brienne, otherwise i'm getting srsly tired of the "F*R*I*E*N*D*S... in Westeros!" fanservice fest with drama levels like those street fighter 4 rival matches.

i Sort of wish there was never any dragons in this show. I can’t stop never ending story from entering my head. It’s just a bit silly

Yeah I really enjoyed the last episode. Very classic season 1 and nearly everyone got a “two days from retirement” scene so they’re all on the chopping block from here on out. Necessary and enjoyable before the fireworks factory.

Not really impressed by these first two episodes, just a bunch of talking and fan service. Unfortunately looks like the next episode will just be a big ol' boring fight for the whole episode but at least it will move the plot forward. Still have a feeling this whole season will end with the worst episodes of the series. The quality has been going down the last couple of seasons.

Only in season 1 the dialogue heaviness and reminiscing actually helped establishing or developing characters and explained the events leading up to the show, aka exposition. This season alot only references things we actually saw: "Oh remember when you said that funny thing way back in season 1" "Ah yes, but i wonder if our audience does?" *audience cheering*... Some of it is just really plump for this show's standards.

I mean compare said dialogue between Jaimie and Tyrion with the one before the latter's trial by combat in his cell i season 4. Similar dramatic purpose (silence before the storm etc.) but endlessly more interesting, tense and actually fleshing out characters instead of just showing ppl doing their thing (the story of that bug killing cousin vs. "remember our dad used to be on this show lel"...(you bet i do, he was pretty much the best thing about it :( )). Or yeah Tormund and Brienne. Of course i had a chuckle or two when he first laid eyes on her but now they're seriously milking it for laughs in a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 way which i wouldn't even mind in something like that but to me the bar used to be higher in GoT. I also didn't like how absolutely in your face they established Jaimie to be as pure as snow now. Also coolbot Arya has become a walking cringe.

 

Dunno. Don't enjoy being negative nancy, i rebinged all the seasons the last weeks to really get into mode and i sure as hell am. It's just tough to realize that in terms of actual story telling this really seems to be basically "it". End of the line. Some big battles ahead then GG.

 

Honestly by now i kinda hope you're right and all that crossovering emo inflation is just a tool to make us hurt even more when everybody kicks the bucket.

 

Let the chopping commence!

But they have to be, right? The characters haven't seen each other for a while and need to catch up. Besides being fan-service it also makes some sense from the story, I'd argue.

 

But I'll shut up now as I haven't seen this ep yet. I might just entirely agree and all that.. :S

Oops, i guess i should use spoiler tags.

 

Yeah i guess it does make sense for them. But does it makes sense to show us if it's not handled in any particularly interesting way? I don't need to see Arya and Sansa reflect on how abuse made them strong. OK the competitive manner they do might be somewhat telling (as in: relevant for the present) but otherwise... I mean yeah... "duh" We saw dat.

 

Gimme back Varys and Littlefinger dialogues! "What is power but a shadow" blah blah. FUCK.

 

Meh, i'm probably too harsh but it's really also just the sheer influx of such scenes with nothing actually happening / developing that really takes the weight off for me.

These characters have been with me literally for years, from reading the books to watching the series. I am convinced that Martin will never finish writing it so a couple of hours to reflect and reminisce with these characters, and probably say goodbye before a few of them die, is perfect before the concluding episodes. imo

I've enjoyed these non-action episodes, I'm glad they spread out all of these reunions and meetings over two episodes, it's a lot to digest. 

 

My favorite bit of dialogue was Bran's speech about death being the "death not of man, but of their memories." Some heavy shit, I know other fantasy and sci-fi has touched on this idea but nonetheless it's a testament to this franchise still maintaining some core ethos and not just vaguely throwing out some superficial supernatural shit as a backdrop to it's orgiastic onslaught of war, dark magic, spectacular worlds, tits, dicks, and dragons.

 

*googles 'Maisie Williams age'*

 

ok, phew

 

*rewinds again*

 

apparently that was the most googled question that evening and it was certainly the first awkward talking point at work

 

 

Aw, I really enjoyed it. Can’t wait for next week. I wish Tormund was my friend.

 

His "origin story" was rather amusing alright.

 

highlight of the episode, that shot of him gulping down wine holy lol

I found it pretty awkward, having watched her grow up it was a bit like seeing your sister getting nekkid. I hasten to add I do not have any sisters so am not basing this on any personal experiences.
