    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Well, heck- given that we don't yet know the Night King's history or motivations Bran could even be speaking to him.

    Jon Snow: He Knows Nothing

    Hence the bittersweet- final fade King Jon sitting on the Iron Throne and utterly heartbroken by the prospect of having to sit there for the rest of his life.

    I doubt Cleganebowl will be "a small scene." More likely his memento is from a touching moment between Sandor and Arya or even Sansa. OR he was being super-facitious and the fight scene "a small scene" is huge 🙂

    S02.E05: Saints of Imperfection

    So I'm really glad Hugh is back despite that horrid Neanderthal look he had going on while his spirit was manifesting as the Mycelial monster. But I am stupid levels of hung up about where the network got his DNA to replicate him. They made a huge point of needing extra human DNA which they found in the cocoon (why couldn't they have just nabbed some from, I don't know- one of the humans on the other side) but no source of Hugh DNA. If he was most sincerely dead presumably his body was disposed in whatever manner they utilize in space. It just bugs me because usually they toss me a bone so I can wank this sort of thing. Hopefully I have misunderstood and someone can correct me else I just have to make the leap and be happy he's back. Agree that I am loving how Pike operates- a couple of times there he was not entirely sure what was going on but trusted his officers enough to proceed with what they asked for anyway, and that's a great commander. Don't quite know why Ash was brought back just to have to sit around feeling useless but also agree that the hair looks good on him.

    And yet the custom of a widow's self immolation has existed for ages across many cultures- Sati/suttee. For me I thought this episode wasted an awful lot of time on Roger inside that lovely leaf hut when there is so much to yet get through. I just did not care about Priest man and his ridiculous "ethics." Indeed.

    S04.E11: If Not For Hope

    Well, I thought Pip/Gemstone Suitor looked so much like Young Ian it made me sit up and say WTF. Their mouths both wrap around that Scottish accent the very same way. And Lord John has more sense than to put himself in a position like that- they've impugned his character by writing that scene in such a coarse manner. Brianna/Sophie sure looked truly pregnant and bloaty in the sketching Phaedra scene.

    To clarify, 'twas Bonnet, not Black Jack Randall. Jamie killed Black Jack at Culloden.

    S04.E07: Down the Rabbit Hole

    I guess I understand but the great love of my life was such a burning, all-consuming type of compulsion that I would have moved heaven and earth to keep- it was everything. I truly would wish for everyone to experience a love like that at some point in their life. And if that love had been cut short by war, if I was denied the ability to have our life together and then somehow got the chance to get it back? You bet I would go!!

    Yeah, I wondered about that but there's so much lore about blankets carrying smallpox and infecting indigenous people that I thought they might have just extrapolated that to measles.

    So no one else thought the doll was what brought the measles into the Mueller household?

    S04.E03: The False Bride

    Roger was just majorly hurt by her rejection and lashed out at her- people do that when they are wounded. He had set himself up to expect an entirely different scenario are was knocked completely off balance. All sorts of stupid things fall out of people's mouths when they open themselves up to this degree only to be met with a refusal. He got defensive and attacked- it's a very human reaction. When things calm down a bit he'll rethink his feelings on the matter.

    Because it is accurate. You are watching a period drama after all, not a show set in 2018. History cannot be whitewashed because it offends current sensibilities- we want our historical fiction to be factual. Otherwise what's the point of getting the dresses and the home furnishings right and even the right breed of trendy dog for Caroline? If we want the pretty parts to reflect what really existed at the time then we have to accept the ugly, too. Otherwise you are watching fantasy.

    Other than the fact that Valentine is apparently the spitting image of Ross. And is only gong to become more so the older he gets.

    Nah, it's just the happy people don't post about it a lot. I'm 28 years in and very happy.

    S04.E07: Episode 7

    Maybe I'm just cranky but Demelza annoyed me no end this episode- her whole "Poor me I've never been to the city before and don't know how to behave" BS caused a whole heap of trouble and I blame her for it 100%. She can't be that stupid, she just can't. And Ross isn't far behind either- the way Ennys spoke it seemed perfectly acceptable for Ross to simply decline the invitation (so to speak) but no... he had to accept and take part in that ridiculous duel. Over nothing. I swear- I want to watch the Dwight and Carolyn show. It's a sad episode when gloomy Morwenna makes the most sense of anyone with her "It was for the best." And George couldn't have been all that surprised at Jeffrey Charles' comment about Valentine- he spent so long questioning the "eight months baby" and I think he would have called that doubt back up a time or two as Valentine grew. Nice hobby horse, though.
