Really helps explain why some of these shows dumb themselves down so much. There's a decent chunk of people who can't pick up on shyt even when it's shoved in their face.

This is why I like to rewatch episodes; there’s a lot you can miss.

ya I guess there’s a need on their end to establish the main conflict before the season ends but I think I would’ve been fine seeing things stretched out and not getting this major time jump until the start of S2…fukk it tho…ultimately I have no real complaints so far…I’m enjoying the series regardless
main conflict of the season literally could've been oldman leprosy trying to stop creepy unc from seeding up his daughter, with various subplots like criston, daemons wife, his cabinet members. this shyt feels rushed in parts

Yea definitely saw that 😑
Shieeet I read the books and im being careful cause they might change some shiet up. Also there are plot leaks from the show too online and people are commenting it everywhere there is a chat function. The smart play would be dont watch tiktok, youtube shorts, lives etc be safe outchea.

Thank God they are doing a great Job with the show if the product was subpar it would have been a bytch fest like Marvel Fans and their theorizing about mephisto and Doom in every scene in every show. Go dark enjoy the content fukk people.

How do you guys feel about the characterization of characters outside of Rhae, Alicent, Viserys, Daemon, and Otto - all of whom have had ample scenes? Talking to my mom she had no idea who the guy who picked up Rhae during the feast was. Harwin Strong, ie the guard who caught her when she was walking through the city (but didn't snitch), and who is also the Hand's son.

I'm just curious what non-book readers think about that because as a reader I feel like they're fukking up establishing the side characters. Even Laenor barely had any scenes before marrying Rhae.

It took me a while to figure out who Cripplefinger was, not gonna lie. The two dudes who were talking about the Hightowers lighting a green fire when Alicent walked in...I kept getting those two cacs confused for the longest :russ:

But I understand all the characters now. Rhaenyra. Alicent. Viserys. Daemon. Criston Cole. Laena. Leanor. Corlys. Rhaenys. Otto.

This shyt is flames, and starting to rival GOT.

I get your point, but a lot of shyt repeats itself because these same issues are always there when it comes to these blood based monarchies.

A lot of it is based on real history. There have been multiple lords/royals who ran off with commoners for the sake of love, both in real life and in the ASOIAF lore. Lots of women dying in childbirth, lots of people being secretly murdered so their heir could take their land and titles. Gay lords/royals who lived secret double lives with sham marriages. b*stards being fathered and legitimized, war over who should be heir, tyrant lords/kings, weak ineffectual lords/kings, etc. This is real shyt that echoes itself over and over again all throughout ASOIAF lore and real history. It's all just a backdrop to tell the major stories around.

It definitely repeats itself. I watched Rome, Spartacus, Domina, the White Queen, the White Princess, Versailles, mad documentaries on Egypt, Rome and Greece. It's the same shyt happening over and over and over throughout the ages like you said. You watch enough of these shows and you can start to predict who's going to do what.

Yea but they didnt fukk. They saw her walk in, he get ED, then leave immediately. Youre saying the whole world knows she fukked, but its been referenced no where else :heh: no other lord, not corlys, not her aunt, no one shes soiled but some how the whole world knows? Ok :skip:
only her, the maester, leanor/his bf(assumed by the way) visyrys, alicent and cole know shes had sex :dead:

Alicent only found out it was cole when he admitted. She only found out that she had sex (with daemon, which didnt even happen) from the cripple after he mentioned the maester potion :dead: but some how this is wide spread news to the public?

Coles entire plotline is killing Leanor boyfriend so he doesnt tell the public :skip:

If the public knows she had sex already was the point of leanor telling cole he knows his secret that rhae had sex :skip: he literally said its a secret :skip: which led to his death :skip: it’s literally the point of cole killing him that he doesnt potentially leak that Rhae is not a virgin :skip:

Whats Otto current plot line getting banished from kings landing? That the King said his one source was wrong :skip:

Ok :skip: you got it man :skip:

1. People did see Rhaenrya at the brothel. Everyone knows the royal family's faces. Keep in mind, breh this is an era where women aren't even really supposed to be in a room alone with a man :childplease: Now take that mentality and remember that the crown princess had her pants down to her knees and was kissing Daemon in a slimey underground brothel. That's a horrible look. But, of course, there's no cameras, only the word of 20-30 people and only a handful probably saw her. The wider city of King's Landing would hear the rumor but, for every person that believed it, there would be some that would be skeptical because it sounds ridiculous.

2. Criston Cole smashed Rhaenyra. Nobody knows but him. The rumors involve Daemon and Rhaenyra. Nobody knows Rhaenyra fukked Criston. Its Criston's own conscience eating him alive. He's a broke nobody knight. He doesn't have the money or the power to really be playing with these people. He's knows that defiling the King's daughter is a DEATH SENTENCE. He's scared like somebody that committed a crime and is now constantly looking over his shoulder thinking somebody gonna find out what he did. When ole boy said he knew, Criston thought the jig was up, and went ballistic and killed that nikka :heh: then he was about to kill himself because he thought they were going to come for him and behead him.

3. Otto got fired because Viserys 1) didn't want to believe the rumors that his daughter is a thot (like i said above, most people wouldn't believe it) 2) Otto has shown his hand too many times that he's opportunistic and has his own agenda. This past behavior makes Viserys think that Otto is trying to besmirch his daughter's reputation to advance his own daughter Alicent and his grandson. 3) if Rhaenrya REALLY WAS out there doing something that foul, then Otto, as the Hand of the King, should have done his best to protect the Targ family. By making the problem go away. You know....his job. Otto is not there to be Viserys' friend. He's there to serve Viserys' interests. Instead he immediately goes to Viserys and says put my grandson on the throne :childplease:

It's the same shyt happening over and over and over throughout the ages like you said. You watch enough of these shows and you can start to predict who's going to do what.
And that’s because…human beings have the same troubles/drama. Nothing EVER changes. Every family goes through the same shyt every generation.
That’s why these shows can be somewhat predictable yet always entertaining. Whatever is happening on the screen has happened to you, or a cousin or a grandparent, etc.

-Everyone has the crazy drunk uncle (Daemon)
-Everyone has the “perfect” sister (Alicent)
-Everyone has the less aggressive dad/uncle that you realize no one takes seriously, which teaches you to be a bit more aggressive in life (Viserys)
-Everyone has the young and or pretty sister/cousin who acts like the rules don’t apply to her, because the truth is for a while the rules did NOT apply to her, so now she doesn’t know how to act and won’t do what is expected (Rhaenyra)
-Everyone has that relative who will flip if you disrespect him or question his honor (Criston Cole)
ETC

Humanity is never-ending drama and these shows capture that so well. That’s why we love reading and watching these things. Deep down inside, it’s all so familiar.



Not to mention I left town for a family event with 3 different families present and hearing all the drama and who isn’t talking to who, and family stories coming up from 50+ years ago that are only surfacing because someone passed away, etc. It becomes fascinating after a while. This is just how people are.
