Episode 5 was a big shocker for me. I really hoped that the good Danearys would win out and the surprise would be that she did not go mad, but instead she showed her sadistic side. It would have been cool if she flew over to the red keep and just ate Cersei but that did not happen. Instead, she decided to needlessly kill thousands of people that she had originally set out to free and rule. It seems that she reached her breaking point when John betrayed her, leaving her with no one to trust in Westoros, so she used the only tool she knew could not be ignored, violence.Read More
Episode three was awesome! The battle at Winterfell is over and there were some surprises for sure. A few main characters are dead and I predicted one of them (Theon), which was pretty obvious, but still. Jorah Mulmont and Lyanna Mulmont are dead. The old red lady is dead after playing a major role in defending the living. Jon and Daenerys still need to get their shit figured out and after all the commotion it looks like most of the main characters that we care about are still alive, conveniently enough. Kind of miraculous that so many survived.Read More
After seeing episode two of season 8 I thought I might write down my ideas about what might happen by the end of the show and episode three, more specifically.

Then again, maybe she will...Read More
As the sun started its route over the horizon to scorch the earth with its hot tendrils three horses galloped side by side down an abandoned road toward what was once called Downtown Los Angeles. Each horse had a rider and each rider had a burning desire to flee the danger they had narrowly escaped just minutes earlier. Their party of seven had been taken by surprise. As they had passed a line of markets along the road they were suddenly engulfed in a chaos of explosions and gunfire. All around them were loud bangs and snaps and before any of them could react two of them lay dead on the ground. Most of the horses had bucked their riders off to run away from the danger and as shots were being wildly flung all around only three were able to escape.Read More
"What is the first rule, Jacob?" Mark asked his 12-year-old son in the dimly lit basement of their home.
Jacob stood straight as he'd been taught and held his spear in his hand hard against the floor and said confidently, "The dead are our enemy and should not be underestimated. Their power is in their numbers and their singular desire to kill. Use your ears and they will never get the better of you. Keep your distance and do not let them overwhelm you. They must be purified!"
"Very good!" his father said while pacing the room. "What is the second rule?"
