I always felt that Jamie didn't seem that mad, and almost understanding in a way, because he shared something in common with her. He too killed a mad king, and despite it being his son, he "got it".

I think he also felt some relief knowing it wasn't Tyrion but also felt bad for the way his sister treated him.  Probably a lot of emotions and thoughts going through his head during that convo and the actor did a good job without showing any one emotion too much.

One of my favorite websites: http://beautifuldeath.com/ or http://robertmball.com/Beautiful-Death/

HBO commissioned Robert M. Ball to paint a poster for one death in each episode through Season 4.  He's continued since.  Episodes air on Sundays and HBO posts the image the following Friday.

That's a good point as well.

I just rewatched the scene. He was simply overwhelmed. The sudden news, the realization, the idea that he was talking in a civil way with a woman who understood the ways of the world and respected him in her final conversation, and then all of a sudden "oh, btw.... I killed your son. He chocked horribly because of me"... again, as it happens to us in real life, he couldn't find the proper words, right after he did her the kindness of a merciful death, and so he stormed off. He was literally at loss for words. Olenna owned him.

I still don't think that means he was pissed or angry about it. He wouldn't have let her die the way he did otherwise.

Jamie also was at a point where he could be pissed or angry and not immediately lash out in fury and rage.

It's a long wait for the new season, isn't it?

But guess what: some people had it WAY worse.

I think I saw this in 2016 (or perhaps 2015), and, well, I still kinda agree with this. :lol The whole ASOIAF / GoT thing is dead to me. The show has turned to shit for me to the point I can't enjoy watching it, and new books aren't coming either, so oh well. Thankfully there are a lot of great books/shows out there. Like those Locke Lamora books from Scott Lynch. Oh wait. :lol

Confirmed that the return is in April. So, with that being said and with my desire to re-watch the series leading in to the final season it looks like you'd need to watch (22) episodes a month in Jan/Feb/March. There are (67) episodes so you'd need to pick up an episode somewhere in there.

If you watched (1) episode a night just during the weekdays starting January 1st, that puts you at finishing the available seasons on April 3rd leading into the final season.

I know myself and know that I'm minimum (2) episodes at a time....so, I'm pretty sure I can get the series re-watched in time.

I ripped through it in no time. Luckily for me, I don't have children in the mix, so taking a rainy Sunday or three and plowing through 10 episodes each time wasn't an issue.

My TV watching has been regulated to the hours between 9:30 pm - 1:30 am (or so). Which sucks. Because, I'll do it on weekdays as well and just kill myself with lack of sleep. Especially when hooked on a series. Like now, I'm trying to get through Daredevil and I'm just costing myself so much sleep by watching during the week. I just simply don't have the time to do it yet I still insist on stealing that time from the sleep I should be getting.

Thank goodness the season starts in April. I was rueing it would be later. This makes me very happy. It's around the same wait for seeing DT in Tampa.

I recently re-watched the whole series in an odd way;

I watched reaction videos on YouTube. Kind of like Lost in Vegas, but for TV shows. I discovered this guy Jimmy Macram by accident, he watches the episode and reacts and edits each episode down to 10-15 minutes. I get a kick out of the guy, and have since re-watched all of Lost with him and am now in the middle of TWD.

Check it out if you cant commit enough time to re-watch full episodes.
(I work two jobs and have very little TV time).

Oh that's pretty cool, I've actually been slowly rewatching Lost with my gf who hasn't seen it.

Since I've watched the show so many times I may do this. That sounds like fun, and would massively cut down on the time required to binge the show yet again.

With Daredevil over, and nothing on the horizon, I'm going to suggest my wife and I re-watch the series before it starts up again in April. We both have read all the books, but not going through that again.  :lol

Hmm that sounds interesting, i've been meaning to re-watch the show since season 4 but never done it because of time.This might be a good workaround.  :tup

It's fun to watch him when you know a shocking moment is coming; Episode 1x9, The Red Wedding, The Purple Wedding (which he calls the greatest moment in television history!)

Checked out of curiosity his reaction to Baelor... I thought he was like "oh no, shit, what the hell, come on" but then he just simply stared blankly and silent at the screen, with "what have I just witnessed" and "why life sucks so hard" printed on his face, and then he simply "NOPE"-d his way out of the room. Priceless ;D

If you had to pick a favorite character, who would it be and why?

For me its Oberyn



Suave badass, that doesn't give a damn what people think of him, and has the skills to back it all up. Man did I love watching this guy

"I have a soft spot in my heart for cripples, bastards and broken things"

Well, more precisely, since season 1 I started to root for the trio of Tyrion, Arya and Dany. Tyrion and Arya became even better in the course of the seasons, Dany is still great but I'm afraid she will completely lose ot and will go Mad King all over Westeros.

And of course Oberyn was great as well  :metal

There's a whole bunch of those Adami :lol, I'm gonna guess you mean Davos.
Mine was Theon Greyjoy for the longest time, cause I love a good redemption story. Jon Snow, Tyrion of course. Lyanna Mormont is awesome even though we've seen very little of her.

Decided to take the plunged and start from scratch again in preperation for the final season. Just watched S01 this weekend which I hadn't watched since it aired. Hot damn had I forgotten how much actually happened in the first season and also how quick the pace was. It was exciting to watch knowing what's coming but also how immense the journey feel to get to where we are now, feels like forever I was this far back in the story. I guess that's because it's been literally 7 years since I was this far back.  :lol

There were times on my second watch that were like watching it again for the first time. There was soooo much stuff I forgot about.

Watch it before - what if the ending sucks, or your favorite character dies at the end? you'd watch 7 (8 actually) seasons knowing that in the end he/she's gonna lose.

Or maybe the end shows something that was revealed in season 1 and forgotten about but rewatching would make you notice it?  Things like that are why I always enjoyed rewatching.  However, you can't go wrong rewatching beforehand to refresh yourself.

I may just watch the last two seasons again, last year I rewatched the whole series with my gf who watched for the first time.
