Mormont being a vassal of the Starks might have met Snow before his exile/flight but Tyrion is so far the only one we know with certainty.
Little Birds. Varys is The Spider. His agents are little birds.
This goes to a lot of backstory that the show has mostly glossed over regarding Dany's father. The dragon has three heads. I always go back to Tywin's line, "Since I couldn't prove you weren't mine." Maybe that is just denial on his part and maybe Dany's father who was reputed to have a way with the ladies is Tyrion's actual father.
One of the major houses had a coup d'etait, we learned what the red woman really looks like, that it is forbidden to lie with the widow of a Khal, and Brienne finally got a chance to keep her oath. I liked it. But then I'm okay with a bit of exposition and a slow burn. There can't be a "Red Wedding" every week.
To me it looks like we might get an "Uncle Tyrion!" moment with the dragons.
I don't think they'll get the win on Sunday. I think United will give them a game as it is a must win for them needing to make up five points on Arsenal/Man. City.
Leicester only needs three points out of their last three games. Spurs need two wins and a draw minimum with Foxes losing all three to tie (not sure where the goal differential is.) Neither of these teams is looking at an easy "out" with their last three. Chelsea is cast in the row of spoiler having to play both Spurs and Foxes.
Should be exciting.
Spurs only draw with West Brom putting Leicester in position to clinch the title in Old Trafford on Sunday with a win or various permutations where Spurs don't win their game on Monday. Here's hoping United can spoil the party and keep their Champions League hopes alive and extend the drama for another week.
Legally in Westeros her brother Bran is heir to Winterfell and then Rickon and then Sansa and Arya. Since the boys are more or less MIA Sansa is the de facto heir to Winterfell had not the Boltons taken it by conquest and been recognized by The Iron Throne. Her claim is largely that the North would swear fealty to her as a Stark in Winterfell absent her brothers.
I'm pretty sure they took Jon back to the Lord Commander's quarters so Longlcaw would be there with them as they're holed up.
I think they should have done the "For The Watch" bit as the prologue to this season. It should have been the bit they ended with last year and the pullback from Jon bleeding out; Roll opening credits.
I'm pretty sure that Dorne is now going to be the "Grrrrrrlllllll Power" section of the show.
At first the Ironborn plot with the King's Moot and what have you was a bit confusing to me in the books. It was a fairly big left turn and I felt the same about Dorne. But by the end of book five it all fit rather nicely and makes for some impending confrontations that should be interesting.
Agreed on the visuals and such around Dorne. Very nice design choices.
But we won't be not speaking of Dorne ever again. We'll be getting much more of Oberon's widow and children. We are supposedly getting more of the Ironborn so I'm guessing we'll be getting Dorne and The Iron Isles going at it or Dorne going after the Tyrells as Lannister allies. Basically all of that book four stuff they've skipped.
Exactly. And also after Myrcella's death since he was painting the stones for her eyes. I'm not sure how those women were allowed on the boat at all. Sloppy writing and editing there.
That whole thing was very sloppy and added to the already "we need to trim some fat" feel of it. Also it had a very "we don't have time to have a fight scene" vibe to it. They've really made a hash out of Dorne.
I thought I'd bump this with The Foxes demolishing Swansea to go up by eight points. Tottenham is in a must win situation for their tilt today with West Brom and likely the rest of their games.
Excellent point about the weather. Some of those not great turnouts might become "rabid fans" with the context of the weather.
Isn't that nearly a sell out for Sparty? That stadium is well under 60K max capacity isn't it?
I'll second the poster who said these things should also give the weather.
The over-sized ego.
Unsurprising would be better. I certainly get where BrutusB is coming from. At one time I thought he was just a pop artist but time changed that opinion to "This guy is a genius." And as is typical with genius there is a lot in what we saw of Prince to suggest he was a troubled man who "lived hard." While I don't expect anything nefarious when cause of death becomes known I would be surprised if there isn't a self-destructive element to it.
I mean none of this as disrespect or disparagement. I simply carried the perception of Prince that he was far more likely to burn out than fade away.
Live sports and being too lazy to torrent the new broadcast stuff combined with all of the studios trying to start their own streaming services meaning stuff I like isn't all on one service and I'd have to rotate a bunch of subs keep me from cutting the cord. It is really "just pay for cable."
Bingo! I've been saying that for years and years now. And now three times in just this thread. #MaybeIdidn'tneedthatthirdcupofcoffeethismorning.
A Buckeyes win there would have killed this in the cradle. Now every time the Buckeyes go to town they try to catch that lightning in a bottle.
They're still trying to re-capture the lightning in a bottle that was the '05 game where they squeaked out a victory against one of the not as awesome Buckeye teams of this century. Buckeyes win that and The White-out would have been killed in its cradle.
How big of a lifting capacity does the forklift in question have?
And there's getting run over by this:
With all sorts of sizes in between.
