  1. The Game of Thrones

    They stretched it to 13 and split it up over 2 years...
  2. The Game of Thrones

    Personally I don't understand why fans are upset about how long it takes a raven to get from Eastwatch to Dragonstone and then for the dragons to fly back. It doesn't affect me watching the show at all. They were sitting on that island for a long damned time. It wasn't like it was just an hour. If you don't like other aspects of the episode, fine. But I really don't give a shit if they compress travel times to make everything fit. It isn't like they borrowed a Star Trek teleporter... The only comment I have about the airspeed velocity of an unladen raven is... African or European?
  3. It could have been an off field issue that made him the cut rather than on field performance. But he wasn't going to make the team anyway.
  4. The Game of Thrones

    Wildfire would be different. I feel like we may see wildfire used against either the Walkers or wights.
  5. The Game of Thrones

    Dragons breathe jets of super intense fire directly. But once something is hit, it's still just fire. Walking over a burning log isn't any hotter if it's burning from dragon fire than any other fire (given the same intensity). A direct hit hit of a jet of dragon fire would be another story. I bet that would kill a Walker.
  6. The Game of Thrones

    It's just normal fire at that point. And we know they can walk through fire. We have seen that a few times.
  7. The Game of Thrones

    It's possible but we have nothing to base that on at the moment. We know he has magic and he can read the meta-presence of the 3 Eyed Raven and affect it.
  8. The Game of Thrones

    The White Walkers weren't hit with dragon fire. The dragons were only attacking wights close to the island. The Walkers were well back of there. I feel like it was just the spear that did it. No, I think Drogon banked at the last moment to avoid the spear (which tipped Jorah off)
  9. The Game of Thrones

    They had these guys trapped. They couldn't escape and were no threat. Killing the dragon was totally different. The dragon was a huge threat to the White Walkers and could escape easily. Also, obviously, it is a game changing addition to the Night King's army.
  10. Anquan Boldin HoF?

    He was an excellent WR but he isn't going to the HOF without buying a ticket...
  11. Who wishes we took Jaylon Smith last year?

    Smith was a poor risk at that point
  12. The Game of Thrones

    They had no idea a dragon was coming. If so they would have been ready for them. It took a minute before they grabbed a single spear to attack any of the dragons. They all could have been armed with spears waiting to kill the dragons. All they knew knew was that there were a few living guys on an island they wanted to kill.
  13. The Game of Thrones

    If the White Walkers have proven anything it's that they are patient. They have literally waited thousands of years. Why would waiting a day for these guys trapped on an island to freeze to death be out of character? The dead obviously can't swim. They crashed through the ice and didn't come back up. No reason to attack until they saw the lake had refrozen. And they have no bows or arrows. Maybe they could have thrown rocks but until the Hound threw rocks they were just waiting patiently.
  14. The Game of Thrones

    What show have you been watching? Their magic ice weapons destroy steel weapons (other than valerian steel). They seem pretty super... Seems he hasn't tried... yet...
  15. The Game of Thrones

    No talk of how awesome the bear scene was? That was a great fight. "Since when do bears have blue eyes?" Uh oh...
  16. The Game of Thrones

    The show only has 7 episodes left. They have to get a move on. The Night King isnt a "dead guy". He is a supernatural enemy with a magical weapon. It literally shatters steel swords. Of course kills a dragon (which can also be pierced by simple steel).
  17. The Game of Thrones

    It was super convenient. You could waive that away by saying the Lord of Light gave the Hound a vision that this is exactly why they were supposed to go there. And without Thoros and Beric and the Hound being there none of it would have worked out. Regardless, it's a stupid plan made "successful" by convenient vision. So, a fantasy story. None of this particularly bothers me as long as they continue to entertain me.
  18. around the NFL training camp observations

    Jumping off a sinking ship
  19. Hot Take: Wallace >>>> Dodd?

    One may end up better than the other, but they don't really share the same skill sets.
  20. The Game of Thrones

    Arya thinks Sansa betrayed them. Sansa thinks Arya is about to betray her. It's pretty simple. Granted they need to work on their communication skills. And Arya is more machine now than man. She doesn't trust anyone any more, including Sansa. Of course, Sansa isn't helping foster that trust by breaking into Arya's room to try to steal the scroll. I never once thought Arya was going to kill Sansa but I don't get threatening her with the dagger (or then giving her the dagger). Is Sansa going to use the dagger next week?
  21. The Game of Thrones

    Eastwatch to Dragonstone takes how long? Do we really know the distance? Anyway, who the fuck cares? They have been playing with how long it takes to get from place to place all along. It's part of storytelling. Mundane shit gets worked around all the time.
  22. The Game of Thrones

    Will Viserion still breathe fire? Is he an ice dragon now (mention of ice dragons were made in the books)? And will he be the reason the White Walkers bring down the Wall?
  23. The Game of Thrones

    Why? The Targs wed brother and sister all the time. That's why it had to be part of their history, imho.
  24. The Game of Thrones

    Viserion didn't die because Jon kept fighting. Jon kept the wights from attacking while everyone else climbed aboard Drogon. Jon then tried to tell them to go without him to keep from another dragon being killed.
