    If anyone will end up killing her I agree it'll probably be him. I'm not sure who'd they wanna kill this season considering we're SO close to the FINAL season and that's usually were you'd expect them to really want to go and fuck with some of the bigger characters. Although Game of Thrones like to be surprising in ways that sometimes sadly end up not becoming a surprise because they've done it too often.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I do wonder....

    Is this even set on Earth - in some forgotten pseudo past that never got chronicled by history?

    Or is it just set on another planet?

    Has this question been settled definitively?

    Or is it a source of debate?

    I think it's set in Yorkshire.

    Your thoughts and views on this series so far.....

    Love it?

    Hate it?

    Worse than the books?

    Better than the books?

    Favourite characters: past or present?

    Does it need to do better - or not?

    And, either way, why?

    Some of it has been amazing. Some a little slow.

    I am starting to wish they'd get on with the war. We've had enough build up now.

    But that would bring the show to an end, and they ain't gonna kill this cash cow yet.

    And, even then, I doubt that they will be able to resist, somehow, some way, an inevitable - going back to the well - spin-off series - and the books' author be damned! Unless he has the power to stop it, if he wishes?

    Which is better?

    The books?

    Or the show?

    And, either way, why?

    I'm half way through a "Feast for Crows" and I prefer the show. I think because the TV show moves faster. But I also think it's because of the great visuals, like Dany riding dragons, the city of Mereen. And the Battle of the Bastards.
    I usually prefer the book.
    Although it's interesting and makes Ramsay's defeat more satisfying, I could've lived without Sansa being his victim. I think they merged Sansa's character with another, so I guess that's just as bad because the same horrible stuff happens. I've read that Ramsay is actually worse in the books. I haven't gotten to a Dance with Dragons, and I think that's where most of Ramsay's story occurs.

    When GOT first premiered, I decided it wasn't for me when Jaime pushed Bran. It was probably that on top of Dany being raped on her wedding night and her brother abusing her.
    Last summer I decided to give it a try and binged the whole series in less than a month. I've watched it twice since. Only thing was Jon Snow's death(and reincarnation) was such a big deal that even though I didn't follow the show, I already knew about it.

    I just assumed it was a parallel universe that was somewhat like a medieval Earth.

    Parallel universe did not occur to me. I had assumed it was supposed to be an actual history of the Earth that had been forgotten in the mists of time, sort of thing....

    But parallel universe does make more sense, coz as far as I know, no flying dragon bones have been dug up anywhere yet! :emoji_alien:

    I'm a book fan. I read the first book before I saw the first season and was pleased at how close to the story they kept it. I watched the next couple of seasons in parallel with reading the books and as they began to diverge more I struggled to keep track. I've read all 5 (7) books and have yet to see past about the 3rd episode of season 4 of the show.

    I'm thinking about mainly saying only GOT phrases, like "The night is dark and full of terrors" or "Winter is coming" today at dinner. And also "what is dead may never die" since it's Easter. But the only outcome I can picture is me being taking to a mental hospital, so I've decided against it.

    There's also a theory that this is set far in the future, since there are human beings that have evolved, such as the wargs. I guess something major happened, maybe an ice age that wiped out technology and changed the shape of the continents.

    “Game of Thrones” S7 Won’t Dawdle


    game-of-thrones-s7-wont-dawdle.jpg




    HBO’s popular fantasy series “Game of Thrones” returns soon with a truncated season of seven episodes as opposed to the regular ten.

    With thirteen episodes of the series overall to go, there’s no more breathing room or dawdling. With many of the supporting players wiped out and situations coming to a head, things are going to get intense.

    Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Jon Snow himself actor Kit Harington says:

    “This season is really different than any other season because it’s accelerating toward the end, a lot of stuff collides and happens much much quicker than you’re used to seeing on Thrones … it’s so different than what everybody is used to. It’s quite exciting.”

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie Lannister, was also surprised at the pace:

    “I’m like, ‘Already? Now?! What?!’ I feel like I’d been lulled into a different pace. Everything happened quicker than I’m used to … a lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.”

    Showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff told the mag that the increased speed is an organic move and with the groundwork laid earlier in the story, they now can move faster:

    Weiss: “Things are moving faster because in the world of these characters the war that they’ve been waiting for is upon them. The conflicts that have been building the past six years are upon them and those facts give them a sense of urgency that makes [the characters] move faster.”

    Benioff: “For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come.’ Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it — you still want to give characters their due, and pretty much all the characters that are now left are all important characters. Even the ones who might have started out as relatively minor characters have become significant in their own right.”

    “Game of Thrones” season 7 premieres on HBO on July 16th.
