    Game of Thrones Season 4 - Thread Attempt #2

    We're going to try this again. Please just be courteous to others, that's the overall theme.

    Rules of the thread:

    1. DON'T POST SPOILERS. If you're going to talk about something that's coming up, put it in the Spoiler tag thingy (this is available in the advanced posting mode). Even then, it's going to work better if you just go talk about stuff in the Book thread, where you can be sure other people who know what is going to happen in the books can respond.

    2. If you don't know what's going to happen, DON'T HIT QUOTE ON A SPOILER or click on it. You can copy/paste text and put it in your post, if you'd like, but quoting a spoiler is going to show you what was inside the spoiler. If you don't want to know, don't hit quote or click on the spoiler.

    3. We won't be banning anyone just over this thread, but please report offenders to the rules. If need be, we may ask a repeat offender to stop posting in the thread. If they don't comply with THAT, then we may take further action. If you report stuff, it goes to a broader base of mods than just the ones who are GoT fans, so it may get removed faster.

    Two episodes left in this season! Who has theories?

    I don't have any theories, at least not anything that hasn't already been thought of, but just out of curiosity does anyone else find themselves beginning to kind of like Ramsey? I know he's evil and sadistic and a psychopath, but he's a psychopath with Daddy issues. Makes him a bit sympathetic IMO.

    No.

    If some plot lines keep moving as fast as they are (Sansa/Lil Finger), as early as next year the shoe could be on the other foot.

    I don't care what your Daddy issues are. You just don't chop off another mans shillelagh. He's not sympathetic in the slightest.

    See, Im sympathetic to Theon. He had daddy issues and tried to make his ****** father proud. He never intended any of the consequences that followed. That scene a season or two ago in the tunnel where he talked about Eddard Stark tugged at the heart strings a bit.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 4 - Thread Attempt #2

    I think The Hound is going to die from that cut on his neck. The only reason I think this is because Arya said, "You should have let me burn that." This was after she saw The Hound picking at it.

    Also, I think the men at the wall are going to be killed and cooked, because one of them said something to the effect of making sure the last man burns the bodies.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 4 - Thread Attempt #2

    My predictions for the last two episodes are:
    1. Some bad people will die.
    2. Some not as bad people will die.
    3. Some people that are not really bad at all will die.
    4. Some gratuitous nudity in episode 10 but none in episode 9.
    5. No dragons (yet).
    6. Hodor!
    7. More simply awesome acting across the board by this cast.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I have trouble with Theon because he's just SUCH a turd, even before he betrayed all of the Starks. If he would have found Bran and Rickon, I think he would have indeed killed them to make daddy proud - and that keeps me from really liking him. It's just like I never really liked Catelyn all that much, because I felt like she made her own bed by first not staying with her kids rather than running off for revenge, and secondly by not just letting Tyrion do his thing at the inn but instead making a huge deal.

    I sort of liked when that disgusting prostitute got impaled in this last episode.

    I'm curious to see where the show goes with Jorah.

    I dont Theon would have killed the kids. His men would have probably done it because they were all ******. You could tell Theon had his reservations and it illed him when he and his men cut down those folks at Winterfell. He just wanted to capture that property and look good to his father.

    He is definitely reaping what he sowed though. I just dont think he is all bad. One of those grey characters.

    I can see that. And I do feel the same about Catelyn - you understand their motivations, even if you don't agree with them or the resulting actions.
