I had a dream about GOT, in which Stannis tried to peacefully convince Joffrey to just give up his throne. Stannis seemed to have a speech impediment that made him start every sentence with “the Iron Throne is mine by rights”. Throughout the thing I was very nervous because Joff just kept laughing at Stannis and it seemed like he was about to execute him when suddenly a woman on a boat passed by (the whole scene happened in a small forest by a river) and Stannis was for some reason mystified by her, and just ran after her. Joff wasn’t sure how to react so he just let Stannis go, and then I woke up.
I saw Stephen Dillane in a film the other day, and his character didn’t allow visitors into the house because they were supposed to come at 4 p.m. but made it early and got there two hours earlier at 2 p.m.
Ugh, it’s like I can’t even find enjoyment in this show anymore. All through the past few episodes I was looking at the counter to see how much time is left until the end of the episode, trying to calculate whether they’ll be able to squeeze all the scenes from the book I wanted to see into that period of time. It’s like I’m only watching it to make sure HBO adapts the series like I think they should, without actually liking the show.
An important thing that has been drilled in with [Tyrion] since his youth — because it’s very much Lord Tywin’s philosophy — is that you don’t make threats and then fail to carry them out. You threaten someone and then they defy you, and you don’t carry it out, then who’s gonna believe your threats? Your threats have to carry weight. And that’s drilled into Tyrion all his life. So his father says that word, his finger pushes on the crossbow, the decision of a split second, and then it’s done. And it will haunt him. Tywin was his father and that will continue to haunt him, probably for the rest of his life.
Personal Theory: Stannis arrives late due to short amount of screen time and the Night's Watch is massacred. BUT Stannis brought Starbucks which allows him to ally with the Free Folks. He sends the Starbucks around the North. The Boltons and the Greyjoys are so happy with the offer they all support him as the One True King. When the Others come, Stannis drowns them all in steaming coffee. In this case, Starbucks is actually the fabled Lightbringer not Dany's silly lizards. Thoughts?
I have never set foot in a Starbucks and can therefore not comment.
