    Ned, his wife and Rob are the only other 'main' characters that have died. I mean, I guess Cersei's kid, too, but this has always been more about the Starks than anything else and pretty much all of them are still there. I get not killing them, but the story has just become very predictable now that they went out of their way to make all the villains into sympathetic characters. Especially since there isn't anyone left to root against. Perhaps this is a bid to simplify everything to allow the White Walkers to become a dominant element but I'm less interested in the plot now because most of the politics and ambiguous characters have been pushed aside. We have hardly seen anything of Littlefinger this season. Varys, Tyrion and Jaime have become bland and they even took out Bolton.

    Am I the only one who finds the emphasis on religions of Westeros over politics of Westeros to be boring?

    Well obviously the Night's King is going to be the Final Boss.

    And you're not alone about the religious thing. It's called Game of Thrones, not "unimportant religious argument in a more-or-less religiously tolerant society".

    But bro, at some point they have to wrap it up, and if you kill all the heroes, who is going to defeat the bad guy at the end?

    I don't think they should all die. In fact, the only character I think should die out of those I mentioned is Jon. He is going to last until the very end despite being the blandest character in the entire saga.

    I would like to see Sansa continue this slow-burning heel turn and stab him because he compromises the Stark legacy with his goody-two-shoes act. By then Brienne could have arrived and she can take his role as a noble fighter/leader, with the caveat that she is totally Sansa's bitch. Then pit Sansa and Brienne vs. Cersei and the Mountain in a north vs south battle once Cersei totally gets her power back in King's Landing. And since all battles need a calvary-to-the-rescue moment, Danaerys can storm in right then and fuck everyone up.

    Cersei kills Arya, Tyrion kills Cersei, Jaime kills Tyrion, White Walkers kill everyone but Daenarys who uses the stupid fire thing Tyrion talked about to murder-suicide everyone so she never gets to actually rule.

    There, that's the next 4 seasons figured out.

    I think the emphasis in religion has something to do with the mysterious plot maesters have with the seven gods, which Jaqen and Sarella are investigating, but I'm not sure if the series is going to follow that plot. I supose, they tried to return to the book plots this season. But the sand snakes in the series suck so much.

    I've been waiting for Game of Thrones to get to this point for 5 years.

    I like the fact that they reshuffled the deck. I hooe the days of vying for power are behind us and now it's about the 3 factions going at it.

    Although Sans vs Jon could be a sweet low-simmer plot to keeo an eye on.

    Cersei doesn't have a faction, Cersei has the Red Keep. She's going to be our Lady Jane Grey of the story.

    The stuff in the North was pretty surprising to me. Sansa can't be happy about Jon being the new King in the North, and honestly I thought Jon was going to step in and decline the title before it got out of hand.

    Reading between the lines: let's see Dany has the Iron Islands, Dorne, the Reach, while the North, Riverlands, and Vale are in open rebellion towards the crown. So Dany has to marry someone to consolidate her power... hmmm... Iron Islands, Dorne, and the Reach are all led by women... the Vale has a retarded boy for a leader, and the Riverlands are just fucked... who could Dany possibly marry.

    Odd that Targaryans have a history of marrying relatives too, if only there was a powerful Targaryan in Westeros leading one of those geographic areas. Until that Wall comes down, it's going to be a victory lap for Dany and the Starks.

    Also, I'm pretty certain that Arya will end up killing The Mountain and then finally the last person on her kill list.

    What do you think Euron will do? I'm sure Dany will decline his marriage proposal. If he attacks her fleet I don't think the dothraki will last long.

    Iron Islands aren't led by women. They're going to be attempted to be won back by a woman, but they're not yet led by one.

    Sounds like a good soap opera.

    I think the dragons would make short work of it, but that's probably not how it will play out.

    But Euron's dragon horn could make an appearance next season.

    You think they would have mentioned that in the show at some point.

    It could just be held off as an element of surprise for the TV version. Or it may not appear at all.

    I think they often leave parts of the TV show out for a while, so that those who read the books think it's not going to happen, then they end up using it.

    It's sad the tv version of Euron is so lame, the chapter leaked a few days ago shows what a monster he really is in the books, couldn't they at least have given him his crow's eye?

    Has anyone watched Silicon Valley? I think it's the best comedy right now, but I'm probably biased because of the theme.

    I watched season 1 and enjoyed it, will watch the rest soon.

    Also watched season 1 of True Detective and though it was good it was also disappointing, I expected more. Started season 2 and it seems to have nothing to do with the first even thematically.

    I really loved True Detective, it's probably my favorite show ever, very close competing with Breaking Bad. I really never was in in the mood for season 2 after such bad criticism. The last two seasons of Silicon Valley are better than the first, mainly because of the Richard-Bachman relationship, Jobs-Wozniak-esque. Bachman's Mona Lisa speech was pure joy.
