[quote]They still have Euron and possibly the dragon horn, which might be the only thing that could slow Dany down, other than the WW.[/quote] Well, Dany has shown incredible indecisiveness, though, thus the Mereenese Knot - so, landing in a literal pit of vipers, based on Varys' recommendation (...

[quote]This is not curious? They had Tywin say as much in the show as well. What does it mean? [/quote] Honestly, I think it is more verbal abuse and belittling - essentially, Tyrion doesn't deserve to live, as a grotesque dwarf, if he weren't of Tywin's blood. Here are some parallels you...

[quote]Tywin wasn't cruel by nature. He was cruel when it was deemed necessary[/quote] We just have to agree to disagree. He seemed to be a good grandfather, but he was cruel to all three of his children to a fault. This cruelty, however "necessary" he thought of it was innate and fricked the th...

[quote]Tywin hates Tyrion because he's a mockery of him[/quote] Recall the one thing that Tywin hated: laughter. He didn't trust it. So, imagine how much laughter Tyrion generated. And, it turns out that Tywin DID like a little whoring and carousing, just on the DL, rather than out in the op...

re: HBO confirms (GOT Spoiler) - Ace Midnight
[quote]Or he was just told that it was Aegon, so he would care for it.[/quote] I agree. This uncertainty is what fuels the Blackfyre talk regarding Varys, JonCon and Aegon (Young Griff). I think it more than likely, precisely because of the omission in the show, that Aegon is a Blackfyre preten...

[quote]None of us "knew" until last Sunday when it was confirmed.[/quote] That's nonsense. It was clear before Ned's head came off. There was no other reasonable interpretation of the fever dream and "Promise me, Ned." If you didn't catch that, clear as day, canon "fact" then it is no surprise...

[quote]The story and themes also support Jon Snow being Eddard Stark's bastard son[/quote] The only objective evidence of this was Ned's word. The fact that his word was pretty solid was contradicted by the words themselves. Plus, no one believes words over actions of someone like Ned. [quot...

[quote]That and they have no idea who Rhaegar is.[/quote] Certainly not. This is part of the problem with the parallel, not quite exact stories. In ASOIAF, there is zero question that there are 2 characters who are already dead before the opening events of Game of Thrones, that are as important...

re: James Cameron: Pot Meet Kettle - Ace Midnight
Even considering Titanic and Avatar (:yack:), Cameron was an outstanding director. He's a victim of his own success. I think the M/TV board knows whose side I will take between an accomplished, legitimately world class writer/director/producer like Cameron and... J.J. Abrams (he's dead to me....
