Auristania wrote:Stannys the Mannys: evil tyrant, burns people, but Davos and Shireen loved him, so I cut him some slack until the evil tyrant burnt Shireen.

I wasn't a fan of how the show made him a religious fanatic who burns people when in the books he was an atheist who refused to burn people. Bit of a switch.

I mean, pretty much. The Lannister army wasn't focused at KL when she arrived, they didn't have the Iron Fleet yet IIRC, and Dany had every single advantage. She should have been a decisive Aegon the Conquer and just swept in on KL to take it, instead of letting herself be convinced by her advisors...

The same husband who had led to the woman's gangrape, the gangrape of her friends and neighbors, and the mass murder of her people. All because Dany was obsessed with getting her rapist-husband to take his horde of racist rapers and pillagers across the sea to rape and pillage her homeland. I would...

It's not like she's been super stable since the beginning. In season 1 she's abused by her brother, watches him be murdered while staring with a sociopathic expression, burns a rape victim alive, and walks into a raging fire. Dany was always the Targaryen coin spinning in the air. Tbf that rape vic...

He didn't help. I guess D&D really can't write a character smarter than themselves. Way too late. Should have done it while she had three dragons and the Lannisters had no scorpions. Just too late. I like the idea that the main reason she snapped was the realization that she could have done thi...

She did listen to Olenna. What we're seeing is her listening to Olenna. She should have just done it sooner. She could have won the war if she rolled up into Blackwater Bay like Stannis did and stormed the city immediately after arriving. I'd say the Unsullied would be more than enough to take it a...

I'm sure that'll come up when John is all "WTF mate?" in the next episode. I hope it does. Jon was in the right asking for help, but given how easily D&D had the Lannisters fold it really would have just more sense for Dany to fly in with three dragons and force a surrender and gather...

In hindsight, Dany should have just listened to Olenna. Listening to Jon ruined her campaign.

It would still be the actions of a man queen, just born out of tragedy when she thought she had taken the city without that much bloodshed, then she loses one of her two remaining children and just loses it. They could have easily have had her go apeshit and go wayy overboard and slaughter hundreds...

The only thing I don't really understand is Daenarys torching the city, instead of just the Red Keep. Like yeaah, you said you wanna save people from Cersei. But Cersei ain't in house number 231. Daenerys is an homage to Sauron from the Lord of the Rings: When Daenerys invades Westeros, her...

even if we accept the results as reliable, all it proves - to me at least - is that liberals have a terrible understanding of class in that they allow their view of it to be divided by race and will never direct whatever anger/frustration they have towards the political status quo in a meaningful w...

i don't understand how the results can be taken to be reliable in any way if a major factor in the participants (race) was different, with 68% being white, 16% being black, and the rest being "other". that sounds like something that shouldve been a control in this study. It roughly correl...

What's the difference between neo-fascist and fascist? Are neo-fascists Zionist or something? I ask since he's pro-Israel and most of the fascists I've encountered were anti-Israel.

It never did, but I don't like what the show did with the prophecy. I'm not even sure how it could be explained with what happened in this episodes. And yes, prophecies don't have be true, but that doesn't change the fact that for many, Arya just killing him like that was underwhelm...

It appears all the good battle commanders left to the good guys were absent from the planning, because that battle was pretty awful. I guessed it would be from the opening formations but it's almost like Dany & Jon were trying to get as many of their own people killed as possible. The Dothr...

In that case, though, he's not entirely wrong. The majority of slave ships were owned or co-owned by Jews, and the overwhelming majority of slave owners in the United States were Jewish .
