  1. The audience knows. The audience knows. What about what the character know? Can you give them your DVDs so they can experience all you have? Or maybe Arya could give them her copy when she acquired them in Braavos (after all how else could she know Talisa was pregnant). It doesn't matter what the audience knows, all that matters is what the characters know. We know more than them so of course we judge things differently. But you can hardly blame the characters for not having seen the complete Seasons. Sansa tried before, Jon said Cersei wasn't a threat to them. Last time he even said 'she admired Cersei' (footage not found) just because Sansa mentioned her name. And Dany is there and they are in a sticky political situation. How does one avoid talking about Dany?
  2. Perfectly valid question especially if Jon/Dany are stupid enough to openly show they are together romantically. As we saw, he bend the knee to get some Dany ass. She had pledged to help the North without asking anything in return so he didn't have to kneel and hand her the North anymore. So it's perfectly valid to question Jon on that front and doubt him because of it. Of course if only someone were to ask Bran, he could tell them that yes, Jon did it for sex/love and not to get an ally.
  3. I see this working for Dany as well as it did for Sansa when she tried that with Lyanna Mormont. Not very sensible maybe because they might just be wondering how the NK came to own a dragon? Wonder who else there used to have 3 dragons and lost one...
  4. Yawn. Find a new way to advertise the show HBO, Got Cast and showrunners. Sansa this, Sansa that hasn't amounted to anything for 2 freaking Seasons since you never deliver on it anyway. Not buying it anymore. Find a new tune that's actually exiting and not a bunch of nonsense. Freaking boring. I guess all you can do is use a controversial character to get hype because you have nothing else going for you. Which is pretty much true for the last few Seasons.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Brie Larson advertised #gofundme campaigns on her twitter (even on Ellen). It was to raise money for underprivileged girls (not boys of course) so they can see the movie. These girls don't need a movie, they need food, clothes and a roof over their heads. Brie was asking people who can afford it to fund the money via those campaigns (aka charity). Some of those #gofundme were just a couple thousand dollars and Brie probably got loads of money from her Marvel contract but didn't help one bit by spending some of her own money to help reach the desired goals for those funds. She is basically using regular people who can afford it to pay for movie tickets for others which is money directly into Disney's pocket and eventually hers. That's called money laundering. Then why start now? These aren't the first movies it happened to I'm sure. So of course it's not coincidence that they only did it now. If you think companies like Disney (Marvel and Star Wars are both Disney) wouldn't do this to protect their business, then I don't know what to tell you. It's a regular business practice to silence anything that might give you a bad rep.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Why does everyone keep insisting on calling them reviews? Has anyone actually read them? Those weren't reviews, it was just people saying 'I want to see this movie' and 'I don't want to see this movie'. There wasn't even trolling going on. That RT took down the % system right when CM kept sinking (it got down to 27%) is surely just a coincidence. Not. So much for 'freedom of speech', figuratively speaking. All these false narratives people are getting up in arms about is amazing. These so called reviews that don't exist. Trolling. 'Misinterpreting' what Larson said. And so on. Apparently people have no problem with Larson and Disney doing a little money laundering via #gofundme campaigns. False narratives invented in the face of resistance due to social politics push in their ad campaigns and interviews. Theaters not allowing previously bought CM tickets to be refunded whereas they allow it for every other movie. And the robbing of freedom of speech as we see now on RT. That's all fine it seems.😩

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    Well I thought Sansa was in danger of dying when she had her first period on the show. There was so much blood that it looked like she had a stab wound and was bleeding out over night instead of her period.
  8. Oh I don't know. If there is one thing the army of the living needs, it's unpredictability. I figured Royce was wearing that breastplate because Robin's arrows went off target all the time, like way off target. That might be the key to winning. Robin aiming for a WW and accidentally hitting the NK. Who could have seen that one coming? NK sure wouldn't.

    Btw was there no one but Judith in Alexandria in this episode? How is it possible for Negan to walk all around town during the night and morning and no one notices? Do they still have no one on guard/watch? How are these stupid people still alive????

    I don't understand why the show went all archaic with that relationship specifically. The 'stand by your man' mentality was more suited to the early days of TWD but it would never have been Michonne to adapt such a mentality. Especially when you consider that she previously stood by her man and it cost her her son. I mean her bf didn't just start doing drugs in the middle of the ZA, he clearly did before. And prior to getting with Rick she was never shy of expressing an opinion different from Rick's. But suddenly she is silenced and just lets him do what he wants and even defends him and his decision to others. I don't know who that is but it's not Michonne. Michonne has been more group oriented and first in line to stick up for people and the good of the group. But suddenly she's all 'as my man goes so goes my nation'? Urgh. And now she is just a ball of anger and anti-group and they don't give a reason why.

    Spoilers and Speculation

    So it's pretty much down to Daryl and Carol as the last characters of the old guard after this Season? Oh wow. And from the looks of it the second half of the Season will be back to segregation to cut down on costs. Carol wasn't in 9x09 right? And she won't be in 9x10 either. What are these idiots doing? You'd think they would double down on the few characters they still have that people are actually attached to. They seemed to have increased Daryl's dialogue by 1000x even if most of it can't be understood. Michonne is apparently angry at/about everything just because and her dialogue is also not understood without CC as a result. And Carol is back to her role of Season S6-8, she will pop up for a cameo every 2 episodes.

    At this point I'm wondering if the writers are trying to make the argument that nature trumps nurture. But at the same time shielding the children with much more plot armor. Judith seems to have the same nature as Carl, in that she always sneaks off and tells no one. It doesn't seem to matter how many times the parents say 'don't do that', the kids don't learn. It also seems that Judith's sneaking off doesn't seem to have had the dire consequences that Carl's did. I mean Carl got people killed with his antics and he was often himself in need of a last minute save. They don't seem willing to do the same for Judith which is weird. I don't fault Carol for Henry. That little idiot was this way long before Carol even became a 'parent' for him. He's been doing the sneaking off, running into danger, not having control over his emotions or holding back when needed since we met him. His older brother makes an interesting contrast to that. They had parents, then the older brother raised Henry (probably like his parents raised him) and both then sort of taken in by Ezekiel. But the brothers are different, hence the conclusion that nature trumps nurture. Henry won't change (much like Carl didn't) and it will be continued trouble for everyone.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    I know. Girls raised in a bubble with parents who don't explain a damn thing to them and who betroth them to psychos while also shielding them from the hard truths of life with nothing but Disney Princess movies for entertainment and only taught the feminine arts with an established system of grooming them...they deserve to be almost gang-raped, beaten and stripped in court and raped/brutalized and creeped on by an endless stream of men old enough to be their father. Boy if this were the normal punishment for such girls (since people in this day and age say that) then Disney would have crashed and burned as a company long ago, since girls would be too busy being abused and have no time to watch their movies or buy their products.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    Applying different standards as to how to measure the various characters seems to be par for the course with some which I find interesting. To avoid getting things mixed up I'm going to only focus on the show. Using the same standard that's used to judge Sansa, that she's responsible for the deaths of Mycah/Lady/Ned, by disregarding age/upbringing/context/actual canon etc. (which is the standard measure how to judge Sansa) and compare her to her still alive siblings. Sansa: Lady, Mycah, Ned (though I still have no idea how she caused Ned's death in the show but his name is dropped often enough so he counts). And I guess Jon's army during BoB. Jon: Willingly took a vow that will forever prevent him from helping/being there for his family. Helped Tormund and Co. over the wall who then slaughtered (and in some cases ate) innocent people. Lost his head during BoB and got most of his army killed. Arya: Her refusal to kill Tywin herself or use one of her free kills, is responsible for the deaths of Robb, Cat, Talisa and her unborn child. Not to mention hundreds of Northmen who also lost their lives at the Red Wedding. If she had also named Cersei, the Lannisters would have been out of power completely and not only would her great uncle Blackfish still be alive but the hundreds of people that died when Cersei blew up the Sept would also still be kicking. Bran: His refusal to listen to his mother and stop climbing the walls is partially responsible for getting the Stark-Lannister feud going. He got Hodor, 3ER and Summer killed. If those were the last of the Children, he also caused the extinction of an entire race. And oh yeah, by sending Rickon and Osha away, he is also responsible for their deaths. So compared to her siblings, she is only perhaps 3rd in line for getting her family killed (depending on where Jon's vow would put him) but Bran and Arya rank above her. Which one of them has the highest body count overall is hard to say though (Bran probably has the least but he wiped a whole race off the map so there is that). When the same rules are applied to her siblings, Sansa really isn't the worst of the lot. Yet people refuse to apply said standard to the rest of them. Different rules for different characters.
  15. Just because it's magical doesn't mean biology is different. Unless the humans we are watching are a different species but that hasn't been specified. It's no different to me than Sam not loosing weight or Gilly's baby not growing despite years going by or Arya surviving being stabbed by the Waif. If it's because their biology is different due to being on a different planet (it's not Earth after all) then I would have liked to have been told that. Magic doesn't ever excuse something simple such as biology of human beings.
