    Ned didn't know the reason Jaime killed the king. He assumed it was Jaime picking the winning side, instead of preventing King's Landing from being burned down. Ned kept Jon's heritage from Robert. Its like what Jaime alluded to that bathtub scene with Brienne about conflicting vows. Protect the realm or obey the king/queen? You can't do both.
  2. HBO has an excellent documentary on abortion called Abortion: Stories Women Tell. Documents a clinic in Missouri and the patients, doctors and protestors. Though it shows both the pro choice and pro life movement, I'd say its a bit more slanted towards the pro-choice perspective.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    Not sure if he's been mentioned in this thread but Manti Teo might be someone to consider Here's him stuffing y'all back in 2017 Clutch play because if the Skins converted they would have won the game.

    Mario Puzo/Francis Ford Coppolla pulled off the same basic theme in about 6 hours of film.

    The Brexit Thread

    UK MPs aren't up for re-election until 2022, unless Parliament dissolves itself. If they did though, it looks like the right would split between Conservatives and Brexit. Which could mean that Labor regains the majority. So the Conservatives have no reason to do that and risk their majority. Edit: Apparently a vote of no-confidence only requires a simple majority, not a supermajority. Still they would need quite a few votes from across the aisle. Labor + SNP + Liberal Democrats would not be enough.

    Yes that was season 5. If I remember right it was basically politics in Kings Landing / Mereen / the Wall, Arya training in Braavos, Sansa rape scene. Towards the end we have Cersei naked walk scene and Dany on Drogon Falkor type scene. I could be mixing it up with books 4 and 5 that season it mostly covered. (condensing those books into one season was one of D&Ds wiser moves)

    I rewatched Breaking Bad recently. Awesome series. I got up to season 5 but thats when it starts to break down (harhar) with some "jump the shark" type moments, which get even worse in season 6. The Sopranos is pretty much a soap opera, which is easy to pick up at leave off because theres not much continuing storyline season to season. The Wire I rewatched all the way through. That was great all the way through.

    As bad as our starters have been, its hard to believe our bullpen is actually worse.

    So she's fine with the status quo of feudalism and hereditary nobility, as long the nobles bent the knee. Doesn't sound like much of a revolutionary to me.

    From the throne room scene, almost seems like Jon would have been willing to forgive Dany if she had expressed remorse and he believe she wouldn't do something like that again. He was giving her one last chance. I agree that Jon actively abandoning the realm he had protected from oblivion would have been a better angle than him being forced from it. Although that may have been a bit too much of a Tolkienesque ending.

    I totally understand why they cut some characters from the books. Especially in books 4-5 (season 5). Luckily we dodged Darkstar and Penny. Arianne would have been awesome though (they obviously tried to combine her character/story with Ellaria Sand), and would probably have gotten the title of sexiest female of the series had they casted and handled her correctly. Quentyn's story goes nowhere but it might have been good for a laugh, in addition to not making Dorne seem so pointless.

    HRE immediately came to mind when Tyrion proposed his idea Though if you ever played Crusader Kings II, you know what a disaster the HRE was in terms of keeping the peace. I realized this somewhere around 8th or 9th war to lower crown authority after only about 150 years after starting the game. Not to mention all the wars the vassals started amongst each other.

    Yeah I'm wondering why they didn't just kill Jon/Tyrion on the spot when they were captured.

    Anyone think D&D were basically ****ting on GRRM with that "Song of Ice and Fire" book that Sam presents to Tyrion? And then saying that Tyrion wasn't in it?

    Given the ****show the past few episodes were, I don't think they could have done a better job. So season and series at least partially redeemed. Would have been better stretching this one out to at least eight episodes. Oh well.
