@Randal'Thor If the tags are used responsibly (though, I don't know if they are), then maybe the ASoIaF tag isn't that good an idea, seeing that there's an extra room for that already.
 
@NapoleonWilson The other room got deleted for inactivity though. Rather than reawakening it, might as well lump it all into one room here.
 
@Randal'Thor I see. Then you might want to adapt the room title and description to reflect that.

Q: Red Priests/Priestesses and their tokens

SpoekIn S06E01 of the series we get to discover that Is it plausible that all Red Priests/Priestesses have a token of their own from which they can channel their powers? If so, what are the possible tokens of the other Red Priests/Priestesses that we’ve seen? I'm fine with answers from both books...

Q: Why are the Tyrells so hung up on the battle of Ashford?

Gandalf StormCrowIs that their only achievement besides being selected by Aegon the conqueror to be the Lords Paramount of the Mander and the liege lords of the Reach?

Q: In Game of Thrones, are the nude scenes broadcast, and are they done by the main cast?

RANSARA009In Game of Thrones, I saw many nude and sex scenes. Are those scenes telecast on TV without censoring, and are the actresses real actresses or porn actresses??

Q: Was Tywin serious about executing this character?

Twilight SparkleI read the answer on Why did Tywin allow Shae to be a witness at the trial? that argues that Tywin was teaching Tyrion a cruel lesson when he had Shae testify against him at the trial. Tywin claims that he wouldn't really have had Tyrion executed, though that was at crossbow-point and he very li...

Q: Game of Thrones Giants: Where are their cities?

smeebHBO series watcher here, never read the books. After consulting the Google Gods, I can't seem to get any clarity on the status of the Giants on Game of Thrones. Where do they come from? Is there a proper name for their species? Are there any "Giant Cities" (civilizations) north of the Wall?

Q: Why did Melisandre appear like this in S06E01?

Siddharth VenuWe have seen that in Game of Thrones Season 4, Melisandre did not wear the necklace while in a bathtub, and she is looking normal. But in GoT S06E01 she takes off the necklace to reveal her true identity Is it a mistake in the show runners' part or is there any other reason why she didn't appe...

Q: Why did no one help Arya?

BviLLe_KidThis might be a crazy question... but in season 6 episode 1, why did no one help Arya while she was getting 'trained' (really, beat up) by the girl who is also a part of the Many-Faced-God group? Again this might be a personal question but it was in the middle of the street, and not a single per...

Q: Purpose of Davos protecting Jon Snow?

BviLLe_KidIn the season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones, Davos and a few other brave men collect Jon Snow's corpse from the snow and guard it in a room within Castle Black. At first I immediately thought that they were going to go get the Red Witch to resurrect Jon but obviously that's not the case. But I ...

Q: Why is the dialogue in Game of Thrones more "modern"?

JayrajThe Song of Ice and Fire series has medieval-sounding dialogue throughout. I don't have the books on hand for direct quotations, but phrases like "I would wager", "half a hundred times", "making a jest" or "making a jape" abound. The TV series often uses modern-sounding words and phrasing in th...

Q: Does Davos know what happened to Shireen in season 5?

PantherWe know that Davos despises Melisandre at the beginning of Game of Thrones. But now when Stannis is dead and Jon snow also, Davos suggests to take help from the Red Woman (Melisandre), even if we assume that desperate situations needs desperate solutions. How can Davos think of her without rage ...

 
1:58 PM
Ouch.
 
Alrighty then!
 
So yeah, Jon Snow dead, eh?
 
Does anyone know if that was Euron or Victarion we saw last night?
@NapoleonWilson so anti climatic
 
@Skooba Who are those people? Are they book people?
 
@NapoleonWilson Greyjoy uncles.
 
2:01 PM
@NapoleonWilson That's why I felt safe to ask in normal chat. i didn't think they were even mentioned
So yes, book people.
Balon was killed much earlier and by "a strong wind" in the books
 
Yeah, don't know any books anyway. Haven't seen the newest episode yet either.
Oh, so they did get him back to life? Cool!
But that was quite expected anyway. Did they do this with Light-Lord magic?

Q: Does the Night Watch oath truly end with your death?

npocmakaThe oath: Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield ...

 
@NapoleonWilson they did, but very low suspense. Almost like they writers were like " screw you guys because you knew it was coming anyway"

Q: (SPOILER) Why are people so intent on reviving this character?

Galardia B'narganThis is about the latest episode. Lots of people die in the story. Most of the time, we don't expect them to come back. Characters themselves don't expect other characters to come back. We know Jon Snow is a great character and all but what makes him so special that he just has to escape death? ...

 
@StackExchange Because book people are hooked on that R+J=L (R+L=J, J+L=R?) thing and think he's some kind of messiah of the whole story. And well, because Kit Harrington, I guess?
 
@NapoleonWilson I don't see how R+L=J can't not be true now. Previews for next week seem to be setting up the Tower of Joy.
 
@Skooba Uh, okay.
 
3:34 PM
@NapoleonWilson LOL, Do you even Fan Theory, bro
 
@Skooba I don't even read, so...
@Skooba "Can't not be true", so it's false then?
 
@NapoleonWilson Double negative mean it is true!
right? did double my double negative?
{clear throat, straightens back} I, Skooba, am a believer in the R+L=J theory.
 
3:57 PM
@Skooba You don't see how it can't not be true -> You don't see how it can't be false -> You don't see how it can be true -> You think it has to be false. Tripple negative actually. ;-)

Q: Balon Greyjoy's assessment of the War of the Five Kings

Jon ClausIn Season 6, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones, Balon Greyjoy remarks to Asha that he is the last surviving king from the original five. The deaths of Renly, Joffrey, and Robb are all known throughout the kingdom at this point, but how he does he know of Stannis' death? Although it's not quite clear ...

Q: Why did Tommen stop Cersei from attending the funeral?

Ankit SharmaWhy did Tommen Baratheon stopped his mother from attending the funeral of Myrcella in Game of Thrones S06E02? What was the point of that? He said he doesn't want to loose her mother again but how did this decision helped?

 
6:16 PM
@StackExchange Nobody's going to complain about you in here. ;-)
 
@NapoleonWilson LOL, I saw the feathers ruffled over in the Mos

Q: Did the Waif turn into Jaqen ?

Patrick SchomburgAfter hitting Arya, I assumed the Waif left and Jaqen came along just after, but it occurred to me that they might have been the same person.
