Re: The Travel Thread

If you've got time, get a Monzo card and transfer enough money onto that for your trip. You'll get the MasterCard base rate, so it's the best you can get.

Re: End of thrones prediction sweepstakes!

So who else went with "What makes the most sense based on the first 6-7 seasons of the show? I bet the opposite of that" ?

Because I love how similar some of our predictions are :P

Re: End of thrones prediction sweepstakes!

Spoiler
1. Greyworm survives and returns to Essos with Missandei's remains.
2. Drogon dies.
3. Jon kills Danaerys
4. Tyrion kills Bronn
5. Sansa ends up ruling Westeros (probably from Winterfell given that King's Landing is just a pile of rubble now).

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

I signed the petition, not because I think HBO would actually re-shoot anything, or because it'll make any difference to Game of Thrones at all but I do hope that other writers and directors (I'm looking at you Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan) take note that you really shouldn't try and plan your plot poin...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

I also wonder if they're actually going to do anything with Cersei and Jamie in the final episode. The only people who had seen Cersei since the beginning of the battle are all dead, so for all our heroes know she legged it early on and escaped. It's going to be pretty shit if they're all like, "Wel...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Yeah, I've seen that too. The head of HBO said he wanted them to keep going and not rush to the end. Before season 7 he had said they could have as much time as they needed, even having ten episodes apiece for seasons 7, 8, AND 9. But D&D basically wanted it done it seems. I almost feel like that sa...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Oh yeah, I'm totally expecting that Yara isn't even mentioned, nor Bran. I imagine Sansa will get 60-90 seconds to say "Told you". They're just going to have to leave so much untouched, or squish it into quick moments of character goodbyes.

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Agreed; the descent to madness works as a story arc, they just haven't written it very well. The five episodes we've had so far this season could easily be a full ten episode season, if not more, if only they had actually spent the time fleshing it out properly and nudging the characters to where th...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Completely agree with all that. It was just so boring . I really didn't like that Arya just turned around and walked away after trekking for weeks from Winterfell, and only then did the Hound say, "You know what? Probs not worth it" and she's like "OMG you're right. TTFN." And then she just became R...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

I think I may have seen the same video and yeah, she nails it. You can totally understand why she got so excited about it; it must be great fun for an actor to have a role like that, even if you also know it hasn't really been earned. I'm just glad it's almost all over. What might have been a show t...
