GAMIER AND THRONIER THAN EVER BEFORE! (it's a leak so potato quality for now)

So... given Varys seems to be openly declaring for Dany, I guess they're cutting out Aegon entirely?

I feel like we're moving away from the books to a degree that I can enjoy the show as its own entity instead of an adaptation of something I love.  We've diverged far enough that most direct comparisons just won't be applicable anymore.  And that's fine!  That's actually good.

And then I rememebered that I'd already come to that conclusion when Brienne and the Hound kicked the shit out of each other, and probably a dozen more times before that.  Old fanboy habits die hard, I guess.

For that spoiler:
Spoiler: Move your mouse over the container to reveal.
I still feel like Aegon is going to amount to a lot of nothing, in the grand scheme, in the overall narrative of the books.  I don't have anything against the character (and I like his supporting cast a lot), but the way he was introduced so deep into the plot after we've spent so much time with Dany just keeps me from getting too invested in the little squirt.

^ Agreed, and I also realize "The Dragon Must Have Three Heads" thing was never actually introduced in the show in the first place. SO I guess they figured it was ancillary enough to cut out in the name of streamlining.

There's also the chance that Aegon may not even be the third head of the dragon in the books, but rather the mummer's dragon.


As for Season 5 ... I dunno, I just have a feeling that it's going to be the season where D&D's worst impulses all come to a head. They've shown themselves in Seasons 2-4 enough times to be annoying but not enough to turn me off the show, but that could change in Season 5 the more it diverges from the books and they inject more of their own material.

I know how they work



Rhaegar's spoiler is the truth.  It is known.

I'm cautious going into this season.  My favorite part of Feast for Crows was Jaime's story in the Riverlands.  That's gone.  One of the show storylines I hate the most is the deification of Super Savior Khaleesi.  That looks to be going ahead full steam.  My other favorite parts of Feast were Cersei's story and Brienne's story (yes, I actually enjoyed Brienne's travels).  Cersei seems to have her story intact and I have no idea what's happening with Brienne.

I still enjoy the show a lot and I'm greatly looking forward to its' return, but for the first time my excitement is tempered with wariness.

Looking forward to the series now that I know comments online won't be full of book readers doing comparisons.

Her current fate in the books is ambiguous enough as it is, now that Stoneheart isn't showing up who the fuck knows what's going to happen with her.

There's a theory on Reddit I really like that says show Trystane might be Aegon. It would complicate some of the Dorne story, but I think it's narratively a better choice than having Tyrion randomly meet a secret Targ on a boat.

That's the spoiler/theory I mentioned hearing in the other thread.  But I dismissed it as being too out there.

I'm about 95% certain, in any case, that Trystane Martell is going to be my most despised TV character ever.

As boring as Dany's segments generally were in A Dance with Dragons, they at least showed just how ineffective she would be as a ruler. If that's portrayed properly in the show, it'll be a nice fall from grace from her Super Savior Khalessi status.

Comparisons will still abound, most likely. =) The season after this might be different, though.

...and with that said, this is definitely the least excited I've been, preseason. Rereading the books hasn't helped.

We'll see how it goes. *fingers crossed*

lol hbo

Ya know, if you weren't such dumbasses, and didn't make HBO Now fucking exclusive to Apple devices for the period of time Season 5 is to air, maybe such piracy would've actually been discouraged.

(Errrrr, not that I'd, umm, encourage one to partake of this ... *taps nose*)

Niiice...

I wanted to get it on my Android, but I guess they don't want my money. Maybe I'll just wait until the season is over and give them $15 instead of $45.

Just curious, how was the premier?

A lot of exposition, typical of GoT season premiers. Seemed better paced than previous season premiers, though.
