Game of Thrones 5/10/15 "Kill the Boy"

"Fewer."

I'd just said the same thing, so I laughed.

What do we know about how greyscale works? How was the princesses arrested? I take it there's possible treatment for Mormont so he doesn't turn into a stone man?

That's quite a marriage Dany has arranged for herself.

Jon's logic regarding the wildlings is sound. Frustrating so few seem to recognize that.

Poor Sansa. As if things couldn't get any worse now if she needs help she needs to visit the tower where her brother was injured.

I wonder if Reek still knows those weren't Sansa's brothers he killed or if he lost that knowledge? If he does remember did he realize he shouldn't let his brother know? Might he eventually tell Sansa they're alive?

His brother? Do you mean Roose Bolton? Theon Greyjoy only has a sister, right?

Correct, Ramsey is not his brother, far from it

Great episode, going to have to re-watch at least another time or two to pick up all the nuances...

I got the sense that Reek/Theon knew it would be a bad idea to divulge the fact that he didn't kill Bran and Rickon in front of Ramsay. I suspect he'll find a more appropriate time to tell Sansa in private.

So glad that Jorah untied Tyrion and that they'll now be traveling more or less as equals. The Tyrion parts are my favorite and he's much better when he's allowed to speak freely. I sure hope Jorah is careful not to touch Tyrion and infect him.

I like that Stannis recognizes the fact that whatever Sam did to kill the White Walker, that's information that everyone will need.

Not a single scene in Kings Landing. That's pretty rare. We also didn't get any continuation of the Jaime/Bronn /Sand Snakes story in Dorne. Can't wait for next week.

It should be interesting when Brienne finds out that Stannis has come to Winterfell.

I'm sure everyone knows this but I'll state it for people who forget: Ramsey and his dad already know that Reek did not kill Bran and Rickon. They sent Loche to Castle Black to kill them both (and Jon Snow). So the only person Reek was lying to was Sansa.

Fewer. OMG. I could not believe it and had to turn CC on to make sure that's what he said. We should add King of TCF to Stannis' title.

What a contrast between the heartwarming exchange betwee Stannis and his daughter in the last episode and the one between the 2 Boltons in this one.

I must have totally missed the "fewer" thing, because I have no idea what any of you are talking about.

I'm assuming that was Drogon we saw flying over Valyria, but I admit I can't really identify him that easily. Am I mistaken, and there are actually more dragons than Dany's three? I assume that's not the case, because surely SOMEONE in the world would have learned about it? Assuming it was him, interesting that he seems drawn back to Valyria, which was the origin of the dragons, if I recall correctly.

About the gray scale
1) Is that the same thing as the "Doom of Valyria" that's been referenced?
2) Are the stone men sane or not? Is it like a zombie thing, where they lose their mind? Or is it just that they've become sort of savage-like because they've been abandoned there by everyone?

If it wasn't Drogon, they went to great length to make this dragon look like him. I'm assuming it's Drogon.

During the debate at Castle Black. Someone said there would be less Wildlings. Stannis said to himself "fewer". The Onion Knight asked him "what was that?" and Stannis said something along the lines of "don't worry about it".

Night's Watch goon: “Less enemies for us.”
Stannis: “Fewer.”
Davos: “What?”
Stannis: “Nothing.”

I don't think it was Jon that said the "less enemied for us". How dare you attribute this mistake to him?!

Sam's girlfriend said two of her sisters had it and that they were "animals". I'm thinking it's what happens when there is too much of it.

To be fair, it wasn't my mistake...I cut-n-pasted it from a review, then corrected it.

And at least I (and the person who wrote the review) can spell "enemies!" [/Stannis]

I thought the "Pox" was Westeros herpes. Greyscale is something different.

Definitely Drogon. And Greyscale, well better to just quote the Wiki

Quote:
Greyscale is a dreaded and usually fatal disease that can leave flesh stiff and dead, and the skin cracked and flaking, and stone-like to the touch. Those that manage to survive a bout with the illness will be immune from ever contracting it again, but the flesh damaged by the ravages of the disease will never heal, and they will be scarred for life.

Princess Shireen Baratheon caught greyscale as an infant and survived, but the ordeal left half of her face disfigured by the disease.[1]

People afflicted by the disease are often called "Stone Men", due to how it makes their skin hard and dead.[2] Stone Men are often pushed out from society, living in colonies established in ruins at the fringes of civilization, such as the ruins of Old Valyria.[3]

I ran that scene back about 3 times and could never make out what he said. Since I was too lazy to turn on the cc, thanks for posting that.

I find it really interesting that they put such a line into the show - I had to rewind to catch what he said and how it would affect the story, only to hear "fewer" and say um, huh?

Predictiction: That kid, Ollie (?) is going to be trouble. As a matter of fact, when I saw the title "Kill the Boy", I thought that's who it was referring to.

Greyscale could be the Westeros leprosy. Lepra means "scaly" in Latin.

Assuming Tyrion ever makes it to her, and further assuming she will hear what he has to say, I would think he could be a pretty darned valuable adviser.

Notice the little talk and the timing of what happened next:

(paraphrasing)
"Daenerys is alone in the world, all of her family was killed, she has nobody..."
-Jon Snow enters the room.

Gives a lot of foreshadowing to the fact that she could be his step-sister. I didn't spoiler this because I didn't read the books, and I have no idea if this is the case. It is just speculation based on the new stuff we keep hearing about Rhaegar Targaryen and his "relationship" with Lyanna Stark.

Under that theory, her brother is Jon's father.

It was a little present for the grammar Nazis.

Those of us who'd just cringed and said "fewer" after hearing "less" got it instantly.

I haven't read the books either and I agree that this looks like where we're headed.
