    That look Daenerys gave Jon though.

    Emilia Clarke has taken a lot of trout for her dead eyes but god damn if they weren't perfect for that scene wow

    Those northerners sure are ahead of the rest of Westeros when it comes to some things.

    Winterfell is a major city, it's normal to have a Starbucks on every street.

    I have to admire Sansa's dedication to the "Men in my family die when they go South" line. Men in your family also die when you reveal their closest secrets to the Lannisters, so let's hope you've learned your less... oh. oh no but sansa you're the smartest person arya knows

    Also what the hell is this sudden squeamishness when it comes to collateral damage? It's a smurfing war, it's trout but it's not madness either. How many innocent smallfolk died in the Riverlands because of the Stark v Lannister war you engineered, Varys? Come on, dude, your hands aren't any cleaner. Daenerys isn't going to go around killing random people but oh she's mad because... idk? i guess she got a funny look in her eye? In Westeros, the worst thing she's done was to burn the Tarlys and that wasn't really a black-and-white issue.

    I think the problem is what Dany's message has always been. She's always spoken of saving the smallfolk from tyrants; if she starts willfully burning people, she's a complete hypocrite. Her entire reason d'etre for taking the throne is gone. Also, keep in mind--there's still a trout ton of wildfire below King's Landing. If she attacks the wrong part, the whole smurfing thing goes up. Very likely she isn't condemning some innocent people, but the one million that is said to live there. It only took 3 little candles to bring down Baelor's Sept and a giant portion of the city.

    I guess when you hold yourself to a higher standard, and use it for your claim, people expect you to stick to that standard? Of course, Daenerys has always deluded herself about her own morals. She aligns herself with slavers, rapists, child killers, and the like, so she's never been a good person. I'll say this: since she no longer has a birthright claim to the throne (and hasn't since Robert took it, don't @ me), right of conquest is the only thing going for her. But it just goes against everything she's always preached about.

    Varys is the only one with a moral smurfing conscience right now.

    The shortened seasons were a mistake.

    Even if you have to create some other small side plot to pad some time, let's find a way to get Grey Worm and Missandei more than 3 seconds of screentime together, or have Jon and Dany not fall in love over a period of like 3 episodes, or have Jon actually spend time with his wolf, or have a solo White Walker episode like Westworld did for the Ghost Nation tribe. It's not like they're following a blueprint anymore.

    Shout out to the new prince of Dorne who was mentioned just so the show could say "we totally remember that place exists, right?"

    They're really gonna do Ghost like that? Your boy is MISSING AN EAR and you can't console him at all? smurf it, he'd be happier north of the wall surrounded by nothing.

    So this aged well.

    Btw is there some sort of stalemate rule or something when the Hands come together to discuss terms? Dany shows up to the front gates of King's Landing with like 12 unsullied and after it goes sour they're just allowed to leave I guess?

    Uh no. That was just to add details to the strategy meeting not remind us Dorne exists. They could have said the Duchess of Dollet for all it matters, but it makes more sense to mention places that have actually been established as existing in the world.

    Yeah. She doesn't like Dany. She knows this info will do a lot of damage. So she told the one person she knew and trusted that it would spread where it should to undermine her.

    It wasn't either of those things. It was basically just D&D saying "shut up, we know we created a stupid plot and a power vacuum, here, let's have an unnamed random new prince in Dorne so you'll shut up".

    Oof the hyperbole didn't track. Lol do you think I literally meant we forgot about Dorne?

    I basically meant that they mentioned Dorne and since there's 2 episodes left they probably aren't going to do anything with that information.

    Do you think if we're lucky, there's wildfire underneath this thread?

    If we're lucky, there's wildfire in the HBO home offices and we don't have to see the trout ending.

    Btw, the rest of the season has been leaked (not the episodes, but the plot points) MONTHS ago and no one thought it was real until yesterday's episode confirmed it. It's really bad.


    really
