That episode sucked. These writers clearly don't know what they're doing without GRRM.

Also, in the books - there's a line that Arya would love to see Sansa again.
So no, people didn't forget their relationship. But the show is forgetting that they both grew up out of their stupid sibling rivalries.

Robb was killed precisely because he stopped being so noble. He married some hot nobody just because she had great tits, completely ignoring his pledge to the Freys, then before that he beheaded the lord of the Karstarks for some menial bullshit that his mother advised against entirely (reminder that this is literally the same thing Joffrey did). Robb was going down a path of "do whatever the fuck I want" and discovered that it actually doesn't work that way.
Because the Karstarks betrayed them and the noble thing to do is to behead traitors.
That wasn't a "do whatever the fuck I want" move. That was justice for treason. Just like Jon had the mutineers hanged and beheaded Janos Slynt. Which is the same thing Ned did.

Honestly, Rushy. Your idea of morals in this world is so fucking off. Who do you think the most moral person on the show is? Missandei? Do you think she'll win?

The next episode just leaked. It was good overall, and without spoiling anything, it confirms one of the more infamous leaks from last year. The biggest problem is Arya. Her stupid grudge against Sansa makes no sense, and neither does her continued creepy, threatening behavior.
Arya is being a stupid smug bitch this season. I'm glad Littlefinger is manipulating her.

We totally have a racism problem.  Just look at the amount of unarmed black people killed by cops for proof.

I don't want to go too far down a debunking BLM claims road, but black cops are more likely to shoot black men than white cops are.  So how does that fit your narrative?  Are these black cops so reified that they no longer have the agency to resist the systemic racism?
Not to mention the amount of black on black crime. It's fucking terrifying in my area.

I truly honestly believe it comes down to a class/culture thing. I really doubt most people genuinely fear someone based on their skin. I fear for my boyfriend's life whenever he's had to deliver pizza to the government housing in our area (they're not supposed to deliver there, but his last manager was a piece of shit).

And how do you even begin to talk about or rectify that problem without some people thinking you're racist?

The Red Wedding happened because Rob stopped being the "good guy", he made several immoral or just plain stupid mistakes in a row and effectively got himself killed. It doesn't go against the "good guy vibe" of the show.
Yes. It really really does. His immoral choice was marrying someone he wasn't supposed to? C'mon.

Many good people have been killed in the show. This isn't a child's cartoon, it's not strict on those rules.

Jon Snow is not fire proof.

You don't know this for sure, unless he got burned or something and I don't remember it.

Also, the "Jaime kills Cersei" path might not happen because Cersei is prego. I mean it's possible he'll kill her anyway, she's nuts, afterall.
Jon burnt his hand when he was fighting the wight at Castle Black. GRRM himself said not all Targaryens are immune to fire. Which sure, might not be true in the show, but Jon has already been burnt so.

Also, I really really really doubt she's pregnant. I think it's entirely possible she could see she was losing Jaime and made it up. Plus, she only has 3 children based on that gypsy woman's prophecy for her which they did portray in the show so I doubt they'll just throw it out.

GRRM also stated the ending is bitter sweet. So the White Walkers will lose, but shit will go down.

Jon will probably kill Dany or something. If he is Azor Ahai, then he would have to kill someone he loves. Dany also according to her prophecy, needs to bed someone for love and be betrayed again. So it kinda adds up that he'll kill her - or Drogon maybe.

Jon Snow is not fire proof. Not all Targaryens are.
A dragon getting killed and turned by the Night King is right on the money. I really hope they don't all die though.

Who wants to bet Cersei gets eaten by a dragon?
Nah, Jaime is totally going to kill her.

Dany attacking Westeros with her dragons is something I've been waiting years to see, and seeing it actually happen was extremely satisfying. Well done.
It really was. I enjoyed seeing her work with Drogon too. I like when we can see their relationship - it makes "Mother of Dragons" seem more real rather than another title in a long list. The way Drogon trusted her when trying to pull out the arrow and how he defended her back against Jaime.

I love how everyone instantly teleports across Westeros to get where they need to be. Just cut out all the boring shit.

I'm way more excited to watch the series now that big things are happening.

ewwwwwww.  ew.  please tell me you at least slathered it in chili?
Yes, I have done that before and it is quite delicious.

But I don't understand why it's gross without the bun? It's basically a cheap, small, sausage. A cut up hot dog is a staple for children - is it gross then?
It's leaps and bounds better than eating steak with ketchup.

ewwwwww...i mean that's just...ew.

the only acceptable way to have a hot dog without a bun is if it's an ingredient in your mac and cheese.
Or if you're trying not to eat carbs. I've eaten many a hot dog without a bun, us ladies gotta watch our figures.

Huh. That makes more sense to me. I thought the apology seemed a bit too mature and well thought out to be from a 15 year old.

Dude should have known better than to be a troll. But most of the hateful and ignorant shit I see on facebook posts are from middle aged people who absolutely stand by what they say.

Not that I really care about him - CNN shouldn't be such a pussy.

Personally, I don't see why anonymity comes into this at all.
It comes into it because of the poor kid who is scared of CNN revealing his identity. And he's scared because he felt comfortable saying stupid shit through reddit anonymity.
Just because you're fine standing by your posts doesn't mean he is. If CNN didn't find him someone else could have and that's something he should remember in the future. It's not the main crux of the article or issue with CNN but it is a by-product that will affect the kid's life so that's why we're talking about it.

Anyway, yes, CNN is being really ridiculous with this. They call Trump out for having thin skin and like hypocrites, put all this work into finding someone who made a stupid gif.

The guy is supposedly 15. If true, he's basically a kid. Plus, I'm not gonna lie, if a corporation the size of CNN started blackmailing me right now, I'd probably panic, at least to begin with.

Damn. Sucks he had to learn this way. Like Lord Dave said, you're never as anonymous as you think you are.

Dangerous cyber-terrorist successfully stopped by heroic, mature media.
It's shitty they did that, but I love that the guy immediately got scared and apologized when someone could identify him.

Classic troll.

If this is representative of America, then I guess I'm just used to the higher standards of civilised countries. This certainly wouldn't be passable in most Western European countries, which is probably why the BBC describes it as "chaos" and a "media frenzy".
Yes, well there is a reason America is known for being rude, obnoxious, and stupid while other countries are snobby and dull.

It's most common in shooters, action/adventure, and sci-fi games, and more the product of Western devs than anyone else. It feels like they're catering to a very juvenile sensibility of "this is what a real man looks and sounds like!" That's nothing new for video games, of course, but the sheer arbitrariness of this one - especially the ubiquitous dark hair - really bugs me.

Dark hair is the more dominant and common trait though. I doubt it has anything to do with "this is what a real man looks like" and more to do with - huh, most of our audience has dark hair so might as well.
