I really love reading everyone's theories sometimes. As a book reader, this is just amazing.
it's not about glory & palaces & dragons, it's about the will of the proles & being able to control them.
Much as I dislike the Old Sparrow, I almost want him to lead an insurrection. Anarchy In Westeros!
I'm baffled to read how many people dislike Sansa and love Cersei. I personally think that Sansa's arc is much more interesting than Cersei's right now.
Cersei is making more and more dumb decisions that are starting to catch up with her. Even her main redeeming feature, her love for her offspring, hasn't prevented her from making a huge tactical mistake. She was just too proud to accept the Tyrell's genuine political alliance and now she's probably going to end up with her head on a spike, and compromise her son and daughter's future. Her arc is over, IMHO.
Sansa, on the other hand, is slowly growing into someone who could in time become a major player in the Game of Thrones, pitting Ramsey against Roose and eventually the Boltons against Stannis.
By the way, Stannis is making a huge tactical mistake as well, but it's not like Melisandre is helping him. The Lord of Light is a piss-poor god so far (if it even exists).
A dark thought: it's pretty sad when you realize that Joffrey would have made a better decision than Tommen did...
That's not a bad theory Chris.
Daenerys has already proven she can rule but she can't govern for shit, and that's what matters, what people like Tywin proved - it's not about glory & palaces & dragons, it's about the will of the proles & being able to control them.

I've always liked The Force. That is until they've explained it in the prequels. Todays society has become a little cynical and unimaginative to the point that people need every little thing explained to them in fiction instead of just embracing the fantasy and escapism that comes with fiction. I don't mind a little mystery as far as The Force is concerned
My God, I think I might just have to vote for this guy...
Given Sansa's my favourite character right now, I'm definitely angry with the route they've taken her on in the past couple of episodes, but I'm definitely predicting that she'll become an influential figure and manipulator, but with the same good heart and kindness that we've seen throughout her journey. One thing I can credit D&D with is their consistent characterisation and arc of Sansa, even if I'm upset with what they've chosen to do with her recently.
Sansa going evil and cold and brutal makes zero thematic sense - but seeing her, as people have said, less like Cersei and more like Margaery, as a skilled diplomat and savvy social manipulator, is a great way for her to assert her agency. She's never going to be a killer like Arya, but she has the potential to wield influence and gather armies.
Remember what Varys said about Daenerys to Tyrion in the first episode this season - 'The Seven Kingdoms need a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name'. Yes, Daenerys is a force to be reckoned with and will probably have a huge part to play in the rest of the story - but whose to say that Sansa, the last confirmed surviving scion of a beloved great House, a compassionate human being, and a survivor of everything horrific that she's endured, can't be one of the great hopes of Westeros too.

Finished reading “By fate or destiny” yesterday.
Great pilot episode. Well written, well paced. Felt like the beginning of a traditional coming-of-age story for Luke.
Star Wars is more fantasy than science fiction which is probably why I’ve never felt drawn to it like f.e. Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica. What kept me interested this time were the characters and their fate, relationships,... . The only thing that I couldn't really wrap my head around was “The Force”. It seems that those who can tap into the force, have some godlike capabilities which made me wonder why they even need a lightsaber. They could just kill a man with a simple thought.
Well then, onto episode 2 !
The family that plays together... really needs to stop doing that so much.
When you play with fire you get burnt, Cersei.
