Clearly he must have been only mostly dead!
"Not dead yet"
I prefer S08E04
Alan Sepinwall (in his Rolling Stone article) talks about the discussion between Tyrion and Varys debating the merits of Dany and Jon as rulers:
More importantly, though, you have two of the show’s most vividly-etched figures (played by two of the best actors in the whole ensemble) arguing over which flavor of vanilla would be the most exciting to serve at the end of this 73-episode meal.
I'm sure I don't know what you mean...
And I really thought for a moment that Drogon at least was going to follow when Danny did her, straight into the teeth of the scorpions dive.
They haven't played with using the dragons (or, now, dragon) as a bomber. For the battle of Winterfell last episode I was wondering what would have happened if they'd dropped dragon glass darts onto the dead. Now I'm wondering about raining down wildfire filled crockery.
It'd be a way to burn out Euron's fleet without getting low enough to be an easy target for its artillery. Or, at the likelihood of a lot of civilian deaths, clearing the wall of King's Landing of all its new artillery.
(Speaking of the artillery, didn't Drogon - back behind that tiny force of Unsullied - look like he was landed way too close to the walls; given how far Euron was able to shoot Rhaegal from? I was worried we were going to loose the final dragon from another ill-conceived landing. Also speaking of artillery it was "amazing" that those bolt throwers did more damage to ships than a 32 pound Napoleonic warship's cannon would have. The plot magic runs strong in those.)
Absolutely. And he was kinda just sitting there.
If Cersi had been smart (and since we know she cares not at all about playing by any rules), she would have taken out the dragon, and the entire negotiating party right then and there. Take out the Mother of Dragons, take out the dragon, and you've kinda won. Sure, you'll have rogue Starks coming after you for a while, but that's business as usual for Westeros.
So if something were to happen to Drogon, is there any way to get more dragons? Has anybody laid any eggs? I don't even know if they're male or female.
I'm thinking a Star Wars homage. When Luke & Han are stormtroopoers and pretend to capture Chewbacca.
Arya pretending to be somebody (Qyburn?) has "captured" somebody important (Jon? Jamie?), who's not really captured, and they kill Cersie.
I think team Dragon was actually quite smart to make the meeting with Cersei, much smarter than they were flying 2 dragons into an ambush.
Now they know about all of those scorpions aligned on top of King's landing, and hopefully this will mean that instead of a full on assault, they will do things a bit more cleverly.
That probably should be the first thing they talk about next week.
This is what I was wondering about. Why not fly too high for the scorpions to reach you and just drop big rocks down on the enemy? it's a sitting and unmoving target. Heck, even the ships could do nothing to stop them.
How much can a dragon carry and how high? How is the "bomb" stored on the aircraft? How does one get the bomb sighting correct?
My question is what's the maximum angle upward for Scorpion targeting?
I was thinking (hoping) he'd just melt the incoming spears.
Showing Lyanna Mormont on the pyre confused me for a moment. She was resurrected as a blue-eyed zombie by the Night King and should have crumbled to ice cubes like the rest of his horde after his death.
The scenes with Ghost were all "off" to me. He was just added by the CGI artists to say that he is still not dead. But he didn't move or act like a wolf IMHO. I can't believe I'm being that nit-picky as the SFX in this series has consistently been outstanding.
They mentioned the Starbucks cup on NBC Nightly news tonight. I totally missed it when it aired. I guess I blinked.
I thought they only crumbled when struck with Dragon glass or Valyrian steel.
ANyone else notice Ghost was missing an ear?
No, she was a wight, so she would just drop dead again.
It's the White Walkers that crumble into ice-ashes.
The White Walkers seemed to crumble into ice, but the rest of them seemed to just fall down.
Yes, before they all go around and kill each other, maybe they all should just sit down with latte's.....
Is the world ready for a caffeinated Dany?
