Also, I have always been hoping to see the Dothraki get rekt by superior Westerosi military tradition and armour, but we probably will not.

One of my favourite underrated moments in Game of Thrones was in season 1 when it was alternating between Robert Baratheon/Ned Stark and Daenarys/Dothraki.

In the Daenarys arc the conversations were all about how the Dothraki would probably win a pitched battle out in the field, but if the Westerosi are in any way intelligent they'll just sit their men behind stone walls and the Dothraki won't be able to achieve anything. Then it cuts back to Ned Stark and Baratheon's saying "Of course if they come over we'll have to face them in open battle" (cue *cringe* what a terrible king and strategist) but then Ned questions it and Baratheon explains his position and you suddenly realise that he's right and everyone else was wrong. That moment totally won me over with Robert Baratheon's character, and the writing of the show in general - even smart people in the show can be wrong or not see the big picture.

i'd say jamie couch lancing daenerys for 300 damage would be a nice cherry on the top for this episode

When Jaimed started his run at Queen Mary Sue I was internally cheering. Suicidally couch charging stirs something deep within my loins, probably french racial memory.

I could not remember this scene so I tried to find it, it is actually a conversation between Cersei and Robert where he explains the Dothraki problem. These type of scenes make me remember how great the first few books, and in extension, the first few seasons were.

I think we will.
Remember this scene between Jorah and the dothraki guy with a whip (can't remember the name)?
- Dothraki don't wear steel dresses.
- Armor.
- Armor...  Armor makes a man slow.
- It's true. But it also keeps a man alive.

I think they will pay this off in the future, not just with the fight between Jorah and the bloodrider where Jorah's armor saved him.

So who do you guys root for? For myself, it's the lannisters. I don't like any characters that are on the side opposing them. And I genuinely think Tyrion will switch sides in some dramatic moment. It felt like he suddenly became a nationalist or something on the battlefield when the horse rapist said "Your people can't fight" and he saw them getting slaughtered.


Daenerys is a cunt, always has been, always will. But how can she lose? The lannister army should be completely depleted now and the Golden Company can't stand against half of westeros, the dothraki, the unsullied and 3 dragons.

EDIT: Oh yeah I like littlefinger obviously but I don't feel like he'd support starks>targaryens just because he's horny. Also like someone said earlier, what the fuck is he even doing, he's just hanging around in Winterfell, not exactly ambitious like the character is portrayed to be.
Be happy and smile <3

I feel like the show writers are kinda just neglecting him now that they are done with the books. The notes they got from grrm probably only included the big plot points leading up to how the series ends, with all the subtleties of minor characters completely left up in the air. How I imagine them writing him at this point:

Writer A: "So uh, littlefinger is supposed to be smart and a conniving weasel and all... what exactly is he after at this point?"
Writer B: "The iron throne, obviously."
Writer A: "Right, but what would be a logical path for him to get there? Remember we need to make him seem smart, and such."
Writer B: "Fuck, well... idk. How about he just wants to get into his dead crush's daughter's pants?"
Writer A: "Yeah sure, that's a lot simpler."
Writer B: "K, glad we agree. So how is he gonna go about doing that?"
Writer A: "Uhh... well he's gonna has to stick around in Winterfell, stay with the starks and uhhh... how about we just have him chill and we'll either fill in the intricacies in the last season or just kill him off randomly if we don't think of anything?"
Writer B: "K sounds good."


I'm kinda hoping that he comes up with some sick plot, only to eventually be foiled by Brann knowing everything. Only makes sense for someone as smart and calculated as him to be undone by someone who knows literally everything. This would also give Brann something to actually do so he could be useful now that he's all-knowing (and done fuck all with those powers).

I don't really root for any side, I just root for the characters that I like.
And yeah, something interesting is going on with Tyrion there.

The lannister army should be completely depleted now
How so? It was just a small portion of Lannister forces, a caravan. Remember, all the gold got to King's Landing safely.

I like Jon, Jaime and tyrion.

Olenna was a bitch but was funny. That last moment where she told Jaime she was the one that killed Joffery was golden. Poor Jaime but damn. Nice move Olenna.

So I basically root for those 3 though. Jon will prob marry Dany (rip) but he needs power and there's chemistry, aunt or not. Not like there's anywhere else to turn to for more military support.

Cersei is doing far better than I expected but its mostly due to Dany pussyfooting around. Tyrion didn't foresee some of the things that occurred even tho he probably should have.

Still tho that battle was pretty sweet. Bronn's still awesome as ever (even tho that massive amount of plot armor on absolutely no one trying to stop him from reloading the ballista was lulzy).

Jon, Beric and the Hound the Lannisters and the Nights King. Can't stand Dany and company. My ancestors came here after our Homeland was destroyed probably because of our people's sorcerer's and burned your soldies alive and took your country which we had no rights too so now it is my birthright give it back or I will burn all of you too. What a load of bs. If that crap flies then seinstein had legal rights to Poland as he did the same thing just without dragons.

There is a picture of that dagger littlefinger gave to Bran in one of those old books that Tarly is reading/copying I wonder what that is about?

They had 35k before the war broke out, I'd guess there's about 20k left after the battles against starks, tullys and now latest the reach and daenerys. A few thousand are probably boys, sick injured etc but lets say 20k for good measure. That's almost half the forces of the Westerlands dead. Sure, not entirely depleted but they've been fucked hard.

20k+10k ironborn maybe? vs something like 150k. rip

Also Daenerys being nice enough not to burn down castles and towns just to moments afterwards burn all the grain for the winter.

yeah, with the only difference that Jaime was doing a suicidal charge TOWARDS the enemy, not backwards, like the French did.  :lol:
