Hello! I’ve been meaning to ramble on about Game of Thrones for a while, but tonight’s episode made me properly cross.
Here’s a Bad Character. Look! He’s even WORSE than you thought! He’s PROPERLY EVIL. So PROPERLY EVIL that Good Character (relatively speaking) has all the more reason to kill him.
It’s just lazy story construction. We know he’s bad (I’m being deliberately vague because SPOILERS). We’ve been watching *and* paying attention.
I’ve not read the books bar the first one as I didn’t get on with GRRM’s writing style – there’s a good story in there, but obscured by a million irrelevant characters who usually end up dead, so don’t know if these events actually occur in the books.
Spoilers in the comments, perhaps.
Someone give the Unsullied swords. Much better in close-quarters combat than those long spears.
Where did the guys wearing loincloths hide their Harpy masks? No, don’t answer that.
AND! Why did Jon have to walk up to the Wall? Why not just sail *around* the wall, on the ship he was on last week?
