Game of Thrones - *SPOILER ALERT*


Recommended Posts

Ant reckons he would have got away. In his green football boots.

 

mine are orange , andrews are green

 

Or it could just be that a panicked young lad just ran away from danger as fast as he could without analysing the situation as well as he could have? Honestly, why does this bother you?

 

he's in a world that has dragons and giants and his da was head supersolider, i think 2 arrows at his feet should be enough to make him think

"here maybe should move more than in a straight line"

“ Anyone know any cheap hotels in Kings Landing, Marra?”

It’s a TV show about zombies and fire breathing dragons and the Fish is giving it the full Gary Neville tactical review.

Give it a rest Dave, it’s not the fuckin Somme is it?

His dad left for KL before he started any training I think.

[emoji38] You'd be telling Jon Snow your top speed when you got back to him. "That feckin buck eejit didn't reckon with the zig zag so he didn't!"

 

21.95mph top speed last season mofo

What research into the zig zag run have you performed Ant?

 

My guy says he doesn't "think there is enough evidence in the superiority of running in a zig-zag for wholesale recommendation."

Better to put more distance between you and the shooter than take twice as long to reach your target and give him twice as many shots.

Maybe if Jon Snow had stuck to the FUCKING GAMEPLAN then less people would have died.

 

You done fucked up, Jon Snow.

Saw a gif taking the piss showing the bit where he asks Sansa what he should do and she says "Don't do what he wants you to do" and he replies "good advice" then does exactly what Ramsay wants him to do.

Here's another (unimportant) question about that episode... but where was Ghost during the battle?

 

As is usual for any episode, “Battle of the Bastards” featured a wide cast of characters, both in the titular battle and elsewhere. One notable exception, though, was Jon Snow’s direwolf, Ghost. Ghost has been Snow’s fierce defender since the show’s first season, but was entirely missing from the most recent episode at a critical moment. It may seem like an oversight, but according to the episode’s director Miguel Sapochnik, there was a good reason for it.

 

Speaking to Business Insider, Sapochnik explained that the original plan was for Ghost to play a big role in the episode, but that was ultimately cut due to time and budgetary constraints. There was a lot of CG in “Battle of the Bastards,” but apparently Ghost was just one CG character too many:

 

“[Ghost] was in there in spades originally, but it’s also an incredibly time consuming and expensive character to bring to life. Ultimately we had to choose between Wun-Wun and the direwolf, so the dog bit the dust.”

Makes sense. Thank you, sir!

He's also meant to be like 8 year old in the book, no idea in the show but he's still young and terrified. My biggest complaint wasn't that he should have zig-zagged it was that I literally couldn't give a fuck about Rickon, he has barely been on the show and most of the time that he was he barely spoke anyway. If they were always heading in this direction a little more could have been done to make a connection so you felt a pang of sadness, instead it feels like Rickon's entire character was to force Jon into that charge.

 

Another minor complaint would be Jon's charge, I understand he would be full of hell about his brother being killed but howay he surely knew Ramsey would kill him and completely hoying away your battle plan decreased any chance of possible revenge, this from a bloke that was fairly calm under a siege by zombies... It was needed to set up the dramatic ending I suppose, now it's time to watch Littlefinger creep on Sansa for another hour :lol:.

You're both wrong

If he'd ran backwards, he'd have seen them coming, and he'd've been able to flip Ramsay the finger every time he missed.

That's what I'd have done, anyway, maybe throw in a few cartwheels on the way.

Tommen's suicide was the first "Holy shit" moment in GoT for quite some time for me. Initially I expected him to be blown up in the Sept, then when the Mountain stopped him leaving his room I figured he must survive and maybe Arya would bump him off to get to Cersei?

 

Really looking forward to the fall out of that episode; Cersei's acts are probably a step too far for Jamie, Littlefinger has got into Sansa's head and she'll hate that the North has declared Jon, a bastard, King of the North, instead of rallying behind her, a trueborn Stark. Where are Dragon Tits' ships going to land? Now that Bran knows about Jon's lineage, who the fuck is he going to tell that gives a hairy bollock?

 

 

Oh well, only another 40 odd weeks to wait...
