    I'm pretty sure that thread is a parody of all the other theory threads that get posted there, which use exactly the same format

    So Theon and Asha in Mereen is a huge bloody swerve. In the books they're currently held prisoner by Stannis right? While Euron is only a short way away from Mereen with a fleet.

    Yes on the siblings. He sends Victarion to Meeren. Euron is chilling in the Shield islands raiding the Reach.

    Haha yeah how long has Sam been travelling in the books and show? Theon and Asha effectively made the same distance trip in a couple episodes.

    Yeah that's right I forgot about Victarian. Another character who has been combined with another for simplicities sake.

    Also can we get Some Blackish book theories? I'm assuming he was destined to die soon there and the show writers thought it'd serve Jamie's story more effectively than another. Will Lady Stoneheart hang her uncle?

    Holy **** you're absolutely right. Sam Gilly and baby have all stayed the same age whereas Bran (who they met) must have grown a good foot or so and looks every bit the 3 years older he now is.

    yeah.

    You can argue that timelines such as Tommen and Rickon growing up don't necessarily sync, but then Sam has met both Bran and Jon, and Jon's met Brienne and she's met Jamie etc...so

    So we can all agree that the Dorne storyline was dire right? The books weren't exactly particularly enthralling there but I liked Doran and Arianne. They were sort of interesting. I guess the Young Grif storyline seemingly being cut makes Doran's own plotting just superfluous but I was surprised they didn't bother with Arianne. Is she the only POV character (other than the opening chapter scene setting ones) that has been cut from the show?

    Oh Victorion, Jon Connington, Quentyn Martell, and Arys Oakheart also cut. So basically Dorne + an extra Greyjoy.

    The show has never been consistent with the passage of time for travel, ever since the pilot. Pretty sure Cersei and Jaime travel from King's Landing to Winterfell within like 10 minutes of the episode. Timelines of different storylines also get completely out of whack pretty early on, especially with Daenerys. It's not really a thing you can get too preoccupied with or you'll spin your head in circles but it's always been the case.

    Can understand why they don't get too concerned with it considering the size of the world and the time they have to tell the story. Can't have an entire season where you keep checking in on people who are still having travelogues.

    yeah, Tommen, Rickon and Bran growing up is a natural consequence of the time it takes to film a series. They've also massively reduced the scale of everything, from what I've heard from book readers - both size of armies and size of the world.

    Still though, they could've shown a little foresight and done something with the baby.

    Baby's definitely a little older this year. Maybe like 2, not that I'm a good judge.
