Re: A Game of ... THEY KILLED WHO?!?!? (hbo spoilers)

What was happening in that scene where Brienne was writing in a book? I've seen a lot of memes about it (mostly Mean Girls based) but I didn't actually watch the episode. She was filling in Jaime's part of the Kingsguard history. Ah, thank you. I had also seen a screenshot of Tyrion saying "Who has...

Re: Video Games!

You cannot win your money back that you spend. By definition that is not gambling. In a lottery it is possible to spend money on a chance to win more money. You cannot do that with loot boxes. Also if loot boxes are gambling then so are every collectible card game from Pokemon to Magic. Especially a...

One thing I did think was odd, you only see a close up of her on Drogo's back when the bells start ringing. From then on you never see another close up of her. Every shot is an away shot of the dragon. I'm wondering if they're going to have flashback shots of her the next episode doing or saying som...

Another, minor, question: they built multiple funeral pyres to burn the bodies of their comrades who died fighting the dead -- but what happened to the VASTLY GREATER number of wight-corpses they fought? I imagine they had a much bigger less grand pit where they got burned. Some archeologist a coup...
