Welcome to our Game of Thrones 5.7— “The Gift” Q&A, If you are just joining us, neither EJ or I have read the books, and I cannot speak for EJ, but I have watched all the extra features on the Blu-Ray (thank you YouTube!) So no spoilers in the comments, so please don’t be that person.~David
FYI- Flipped the script again this week, normally I send EJ the questions, then I add my answers after he replies, this week, I answered them, then sent them to EJ.
David: Well, I thought it would give the First Ranger a chance to show he’s not all ass, in how he dealt with two would be rapists, and also a chance to name Samwise the Measter and send him to go learn. Now? Samwise has lost the moral high ground in doing the dirty with his lady. It is not revealed if Jon showed Sam all his tricks.
David: I hoped not. I really did. Seemed like to quick a change for Theon if he just snapped back. I do like that he found Ramsey in the room he was supposed to leave the candle, so we are not 100% sure she’s not getting through to him. I do think Sansa is on her way to figuring out she’s got to do this on her own. (Cue Laverne and Shirley theme)
David: Yup. Soon as she pretty much got blown off by the Queen, I knew she was going to join her. Her cousin Lancel has never been much of a leader or even a smart guy, he just knows a ton- but now the High Sparrow has the tools to bring down teh crown, and doesn’t need her anymore. If Margery was broken? Then the two Queens could have walked out together under a new truce. Now? They are done for.
David: Whatever the High Sparrow tells him to do. You know what he needs? His uncle Tyrion. He only has Pycel really, and he is neither moral nor brilliant. Varys could have been a great help, since he can banter with the High Sparrow, and for the most part, moral, keep in mind the Romans though Eunuchs were incorruptible.
Earl: Not a damn thing. Tommen is powerless but he seems smart enough to know that he can’t sic the army on the sparrows. That won’t work. Tommen may or may not know his true origins but I’m afraid he’s about to find out that his uncle is really his father.
David: Bronn is always safe. He’s the MAN. I do think he’s traded up in ladies, the only problem is, if he leaves the toilet seat up, he’s a dead man. I do think she saved him. There is really no reason to have another poison around her neck, since it was a fairly quick mission.
6. Is Jorah going to be forgiven?
David: I think I know. You Ready?
Think on it. The Sparrow can bring down Tommen. Gendry is the only Bratheon left by the old king. Bealish can control King’s Landing- The Queen of Thorns can be happy to haul ass out of the capital- or marry Margery to her THIRD king, and the Lannisters can wear themselves out vs the Sparrows.
