Vikings >>>>>>>>>>>>> Game of Thrones. Imo 

 

 

everyone to their own opinions and all that but i just dont get this. I tried vikings, 3 seasons in fact! everyone promised it was great. I like vikings, pirates etc I love an action adventure. It 'looks' really good. I SHOULD of liked it.

But the acting in vikings was so wooden. B-rate a lot of it, imo. There was neither particularly likeable or devious characters and the plot was paint-by-numbers (viking wants to become leader, viking wants to invade this place etc etc  A-B-C it just wasnt gripping.) Game of thrones has spoiled us in that sense with its multiple plot layers. after forcing myself through multiple seasons i gave up. Thought vikings was dug keek to be blunt.

Only thing that is up there for me is Black Sails (great twists, good cast and probably some of the best character development over a tv series i've seen)

Remember the meeting at King’s Landing and Tyrion made a deal with Cersei, after finding out she was pregnant? Cersei lied, Jaime believed it. Then he said **** you and decided to do the right thing.

 

Thought it was a good set up episode. Some cool moments we’ve been waiting for - like Jon riding a dragon. Loved all the reunions too.

Decent enough episode but I thought the CGI with the Dragon riding was garbage.

Any theories on gendrys storyline? Surely they wouldn't have spent so much time on him if he wasn't somehow important.

Think Jamie will be up for the chop up until bran steps (wheels) in and explains that it was his fault the mad King went mad and that Jamie did the correct thing. 

 

This will cause more friction between the starks and dany.

Can only hope that it was rushed/done on the cheap to allow more time/money to be spent on later episodes, really hope it’s not a case of the producers getting lazy/lackadaisical

I've been thinking for a long time hat Dany is heading the way of her father and showing signs of becoming the Mad Queen. I reckon infighting between the allies is the direction we're heading in.

She seems more about power and respect now than the caring queen of earlier.

Also if we are taking the obvious that Jon is Azor Ahai (prince that was promised) it would fulfill the profecy of him killing someone he loves to save them.

Spoiler

 

 

However that all seems a bit obvious for GRR Martin. He said himself he doesn't like the typical heroes.

Some first episodes of the mid seasons took ages to get going, IMO, with the sheer amount of characters and storylines to catch up on. Not the case now we're in the home straight.

 

First episode and straight away we've had Jon riding a dragon (which it's long been rumoured he'd do), had his parentage revealed to him, Cersei and Euron, and the White Walkers are already slaughtering Northmen and at the door of Winterfeld.

 

No ****ing about this season. Good stuff 😁

Are we allowed to talk crazy theories...

 

Spoiler

Now I don't buy this But... One of the interesting theories I read was Littlefinger could be a main player still...

It made some pretty absurd connections but I liked it because I always felt he was the one character throughout who has truly been playing "the game of thrones"

 

Basically he fake death or sacrificed himself to set things in motion. He was too clever to merely think Arya /sansa wouldn't have found out.

 

He has been the catalyst or cause if many major events from the start. For all his faults his love for catelyn was true. There's other loose hints like him carrying the valerian dagger in season one etc.

 

It's far fetched for sure but I quite like the notion that it would be such an anti hero could still be involved.

We saw him being stabbed to death though?

 

Even for GOT that would be batshit crazy.

Like I said I don't believe it. Just liked the notion that someone even going to the extent to try and support this means GOT always keeps you guessing.

 

It's a character GR has always liked though. There's various quotes saying he sees himself in him etc but I'd suggest this sort of thing could be found for most main characters if you looked hard enough.

 

The death as you say makes it very unlikely(theory I read proposed it could either be a faceless person or fulfilling a profecy of sacrifice which will be revealed in greater detail via bran flashbacks) Wouldnt be like GOT to throw us a complete curve ball from somewhere tho.

 

Anyway won't waste anymore time on that as it's all pretty absurd. Most of it was based on stuff in books which would be revealed through flashbacks (all extremely unlikely) but thought was interesting idea none the less

Just rewatched the whole thing before last night's episode.  Watching the Beyond the Wall episode...really want one of the spinoff shows to be about Thoros of Myr and his charge at Pyke.

 

As for the latest episode...I like Cersei couldnt care attitude to the dead coming.  Think she is at the point that she doesnt care if everyone dies as long as her enemies go to.

 

Euron Greyjoy is brilliant...great casting.

Hmm not convinced. When he was first introduced he was like a caricature. Found him annoying and not in keeping with other characters.

 

However he does really seem to be growing into it. Much better so far this season.

Ali but he came back to life the very next episode and in very different circumstances.  Little finger was killed ages ago.

I wonder how GRRM is getting on with his books - the story was a bit different with the paths of some characters.

 

If I were him I'd be trying to get something out pronto to maximize sales.  He's risking not actually finishing it now unless he's been working on the remaining volumes at once

I was talking about this last week. It wouldn't surprise me to see winds of winter out just after the series finishes.

Is anyone ever going to realise that Ned finding out about him being Roberts son is what started all of this madness to start with?

Aye right at the start John was murdered because he discovered Gendry then Ned worked it out and that was the beginning of the end for him, without Gendry none of this happens

Haha it certainly wouldn't!

 

Yes, and it looks like Gendry is going to have a part to play in how this all ends too (apart from making the dragon glass weapons).

I think as soon as the TV show finishes, the next book will be announced/released.  He has been releasing chapters from it for around 5 years, so it must be close.  Wouldn't surprise me if both Winds of Winter and and the Spring book were finished.

I read a fan theory about Gendry being an legitimate child of Cersi and Robert. This meant he was ahead of the 3 ‘Baratheon children’ so was framed out as a *******

Maybe but that doesnt make sense in the Blonde/Brown hairline that Ned discovered.

 

Also, with all the Lannister kids dead either way Gendy is still the only Baratheon heir alive.

I read a theory the other day that Drogon the dragon, was actually a reincarnated Khal Drogo hence the weird looks from the dragon to John snow when him and Danny kissed.

 

Not sure how that would play out, however, I do enjoy reading some of the theories.

When cerseo has the flashback with the witch I'm sure there is mention if a dark haired child. I think this is pretty plausible but unsure of how important it'll turn out to be.

 

Spoiler

Maybe some bittersweet moment where cerseo realises her and Roberts son does something amazing or infamous only to be acknowledged as a baratheon while the lannister legacy dies out?

Doesnt cersi tell cat stark that her and Roberts son died? Doesn’t seem all that likely to me, either way gendry still has a claim to the throne. 

 

Could we see Ayrs and Gendry getting together and Roberts wish of uniting the bathreons and starks united. There defo seemed to be some chemistry between the two and gendry commented how she looks very good or something.

 

Ayra doesn’t really seem the marrying type but it’s GOT anything can happen lol.

Doesn't this just reinforce the theory?

 

Ned/Robert/some other(cersei herself?) Know he won't be accepted so send true Aire off to fleabottom and announce it as still born.

 

Think Arya and gendry could be key players . Would go along with grrm idea of poor backgrounds and untypical hero types.

 

Maisie williams is 22yo now so would take away any on screen creepiness
