Are you all just going to pretend this isn't happening?
I assume everyone's already illegally downloaded last nights episode? If so you'll definitely understand my next question...
WHO DONE THE DOINGS WHAT DID GET DONE!?
I'm reckoning Cersei at a daring 50/1.

I don't watch Thrones but if I did I would choose to support the media corporation rather than these piece of shit hackers. They don't even have the balls to admit they are extorting, rather than all these laughably confused statements they have come out with.
|>>|| No. 21717
Utter balls. I ponce Game of Thrones week in, week out, from free torrents, and I've got no pretence I'm doing anything other. I'm poor as fuck and simply wouldn't watch it otherwise, but I'm still robbing the hard work of the camera operators, visual effects artists, runners and writers and the countless other professionals who appear in the credits no bugger hangs about for; unless the music's decent (thanks musicians, sound technicians and the sixteen other job titles responsible for that). Do you have any comprehension of what a gigantic ball ache setting those Lannister men on fire was? Just filling out the risk assessment needed to set more than a dozen men aflame with out killing a single one was likely an unspeakably cruel task.

Actually the Indians have already been caught, this was a fuck-up from HBO. They accidentally leaked the episode a week early in Spain and once out nobody is going to wait until Monday morning.
I won't let that interfere with your morality tale though.

Robbing yes, but not those people. It's not like the worker bees get profit shares.
|>>|| No. 21721
Not directly, but if there's no money the show never gets made, does it? And those "worker bees" have more sodding talent in their little finger in the bum? than most folk do in their entire skin bags.

I don't think GoT is at risk of being cancelled due to low viewing figures.
Most of the sort to watch it are also the sort to go out and buy lots of pointless bobble-heads of the characters or something so there's always the revenue from that. It can have an economy based on that of Transformers.
|>>|| No. 21723
No, of course not, but I'm speaking of the principle. Stop being awkward for the sake of it, it's tedious.
|>>|| No. 21724
It did seem like you were talking about GoT in general given that this is the GoT thread.
|>>|| No. 21725
Perhaps, but the argument began as one from the principle "art should be free". So it's irrelevant how rich HBO are because if you condone theft from them you condone it from small and independent artists too.
|>>|| No. 21727
All humans should be freee to draw on some central pot of money to pursue whatever creative projects they feel like. Then they should give whatever they come up with away for "free"
|>>|| No. 21728
That tends to remove incentives to actually do anything, but it's one thing to torrent a globally syndicated show and another to go out of your way to pay for things you enjoy that are made by amateurs or the less well-known. Patreon and kickstarter are good for this.
|>>|| No. 21733
Shame that proper dole was replaced with JSA. If NME circa 1998 is to be trusted, it's been a bastard for our musicians (and presumably other creatives.)
|>>|| No. 21734
Back in the day, the DHSS were the biggest funder of the arts in this country. Pretty much every band in the country got through the lean early years on Unemployment Benefit or Enterprise Allowance. Rents were cheap and squatting was legal, so even if you were signing on you could afford to have a full-time rehearsal space and do gigs up and down the country for little more than petrol money. If your benefits got stopped, it was easy to just sign on at a different place under a different name. The New Labour welfare reforms really did have a devastating impact on the British music scene.

I watched the leaked episode. This is getting silly. I might just drop it after this season. Does the fat fuck have any input on these episodes? It is all disjointed. Nothing has any meaning. Everything is rushed and pointless. They are trying to force me to like certain characters, and hate others. Just kicking it down my throat. No nuances. No nothing. This is quickly becoming a useless summer blockbuster film with shit ratings and high views.
|>>|| No. 21738
The best description I've read of it is that it has gone from an actual plot to being a series of bullet points to get from one set piece to another.
|>>|| No. 21739
When you look at Season 1 with all the political scheming and small scale plot, it's insane.
I think the problem is they're running out of HBO money, and dont have any book based filler, so just rushing through the A-Z.

Why is it The Lord of Light lets his priests turn into aged skag fiends, but makes sure his priestesses hotter than the flames themselves? Is it just savvy marketing?
|>>|| No. 21741
>priestesses hotter than the flames themselves
She is literally an 180 year old cancer victim.
|>>|| No. 21742
Obviously, I am watching the show. However, her necklace prevents her from appearing so, so that's either R'hollor's work, or something to do with Melisandre being from Asshai, but the priestess who visits Varys and Tyrion in Meereen is wearing one too so I don't know. Also there's a street preacher in what I think was Volantis, but I don't remember her wearing one at all.
|>>|| No. 21743
I assume they serve different purposes with the women being turned into recruiters by sex appeal. The temples for instance have priests, warriors and prostitutes.
As a bloke and a man of the world, I'd think twice about putting one of those necklaces on. I think we have all seen what that can do in pornography.

"Why didn't you just solo a dozen kingsguard and take the express train back to Winterfell when they were killing dad, Sansa?!" - Arya Stark, bastion of reason.
>I think we have all seen what that can do in pornography.
Hmm, I disagree.
|>>|| No. 21750
Arya's storyline and character is really pissing me off now. She's a dickhead and failed half her quests when she tried to join the Dark Brotherhood but somehow she still got turned into an untouchable badass. Now she's just blundering about thinking she's a boss ass bitch when she's still the same little spacker as before but with a few masks.
I hope she gets impaled through the cunt.

>I hope she gets impaled through the cunt.
That would hurt her tiny little cunt though.
|>>|| No. 21753
Arya's point is that it would have been preferable to die than it would to betray her own family. Of course as viewers we are privy to seeing both sides and can reconcile these things but Arya does not have all this information. Just a load of anger that has been driving her all those years but now has found a target in Sansa, who appears to be the same spoiled power-hungry princess she was as a child. The subtelties are lost on her though, when you're a hammer everything looks like a nail.
|>>|| No. 21754
A good explanation. I watched the most recent episode and thought her scenes were a bit silly, but it makes sense when you put it like that.
|>>|| No. 21755
I mentioned Sansa soloing "a dozen kingsguard", of course I realise now that there are never more than seven kingsguard.
You pair are fucking weird.
Perhaps, but Arya's only really attempted to run into the jaws of death on one occasion and Sandor was on hand to prevent her from doing so. I'm honestly thinking she's, along with Sansa perhaps, baiting Petyr Baelish into thinking he's getting one over on the pair of them.

I recently watched the South ark Parody of GoT and it left me with absolutely no desire to watch the series what so ever.

It could be worse. You could have to spend the first five minutes of an episode trying to stop thinking about wieners.

Jaime is Azor Ahaiand Cersei will be The Night Queen/Nissa Nissa. Cersei is already au fait with necromancy, specifically its use as a tool to further her power, so I don't think she'll have the same reaction of horror and revulsion most people do when they see a Wight. Add to that her willingness to do things Olena describes as not being "capable of imagining", I think this has a reasonably good chance of being true. And erm, Window's Wail becoming Lightbringer, backed up by something about it being forged from Ice making it important, or something...
Although this does go against what I've thought since Cersei crowned herself queen about prophecy of a "younger, prettier" queen who would "cast her down" being Daenarys inb4 "but Cersei's fitter", because while I agree I would still say Daenarys is "prettier".

Nothing really happened did it? Seeing all those character interact was just fan service.
|>>|| No. 21778
Well Littlefinger got fingered and with it the last hope of any palace intrigue. I guess you could say that worse than nothing happened.
I hated this episode as well but at this point I'm tired of complaining about it. At least there is just one season left.
|>>|| No. 21780
Every time I see the word "fan service" in a post about GoT my eyes glaze over.
|>>|| No. 21781
If a woman you fancy tells you that she cannot have children surely your first reaction is not to question the mechanics of it?
Careful, you might miss all the fun now that the hero of the story is a confirmed auntiefucker. I'm starting to think it is deliberate given the master of pastry scene a couple of episodes back.

"Hi, I'm Petyr Baelish and my entire story arch amounts to a hill of dead Rickon Starks."
I hope something interesting happens with Cersei and The Golden Company because this is just light v dark mediocrity otherwise.

It is if you live in Westeros where even the most advanced medicine doesn't go much beyond "peel the skin and apply aspirin"

I think it's a case of him not expecting the undead to come along and spoil his plans. The living he could work with and mess around to his desire.

Is Jaime still in the Kingsguard, or Queensguard as I suppose it is now?

inb4 Gendry spends the next 4 series digging himself out from under The Wall.

Arya was Littlefinger all along. It's why his accent changed every five seconds. Also, are we meant overlook the fact the Knights of the Vale witnessed Sansa give him an alibi for her aunt's death?

Haven't we had a cunt-off before about the relative sophistication of Medieval medicine?
Presumably he has gone AWOL because Brienne told him too. She probably owes him a handjob so fair play.
Better yet it transitions into a Dwarf Fortress tv series.
