These people are for laughing at, since they don't know how to use a wiki in 2014/can't figure out a callback to a plot point that happened ten minutes/one episode ago. Also, the OP doesn't actually help with these questions. Otherwise you probably wouldn't get them.

You're worse than all of those people put together.

(For once) I'm not objecting to book material, but have they actually referred to him as the Viper on the show? Doesn't ring a bell.

In the books he's known as the Red Viper of Dorne or something like that.

EDIT: No they haven't called him that in the show yet. They also haven't called him the spaniard yet.

Why are people complaining about the OP on SA? It is pretty common for there to be long sperglord OPs on SA forums. It's quite simple to scroll past as well if you dislike it.
I for one love to read the last seen sections for each character; since it's a fun way to remember where the two dozen of main characters are at currently.

All of these also had double meanings. Probably Sansa is the mountain and Littlefinger's weiner is the Viper.

I'm almost certain that Tyrion referred to him by the Red Viper in the first episode he appeared in. And then they never said it again.

Also, again, I like the OP and read the jokes.

The compromise is for people to stop being so goony and just spend 10 seconds per week of their undoubtedly busy and important lives scrolling past it the first time they visit the thread.

Somebody should put the character guide in the character guide, because it seems to speak to the hearts of goons in ways that some characters don't even manage to.

One option - because clearly some men just want to watch the world burn - is to ask Baldurk if you can host the OP on the screenshot LP test poster and just link to it each week for those who want to go over it. It would make the thread easier to read, as well as (hopefully) stop these OP-quoting jackasses who are now just copying someone else's joke (that was actually funny the first time but not really now).

Ohhhh noooo, all these OP quotes make the thread unreadable!

Wait I can just ignore

If Tyrion's champion dies and he gets sent to the wall will Jamie still have to leave the kingsguard? Then it's really a lose lose situation for everybody involved ain't it; Tyrion gets sent to a cold barren fort for the rest of his life (...if he can even make it there before the wildlings attack?), Tywin's allegiance with Dorne will be hosed, Cersei will be denied killing the imp, and Jamie will have live a normal life in dishonor.

Tywin's really hosed up his plans this time, but he still probably comes out the winner all of this if Jamie continues on the Lannister name, at least until Dany comes over and burns them all to a crisp

Do you really think Tywin would be likely to allow mercy after that "I wish I had enough poison for all of you" speech? You have to think about the entirety of King's Landing nobility screaming for justice.

Pretty sure they're gonna have to deal with Stannis (again) before the queen on the other side of the sea.

I don't know, I'd imagine most of the nobility would know Tyrion didn't do it. I think his dad/sister is really putting him "on trial" for killing his mother, but for the rest of the bigoted Kign's Landing Tyrion is right that this is really all just about him being a dwarf. His speech will certainly cause the nobility a few eye-rolls and sneers, but I can't imagine it'd cause enough furor that it'd stop Tywin from potentially get Jamie out of the King's Guard. Or maybe I'm misreading the situation and the common people actually believe in the legitimacy of the mock trial and think Tyrion killed Joffrey, which would make it harder.

I just meant in the sense that they'd have none of those dragon repellant candle's Dorne is so good at making, so if she ever leaves Essos they'd be screwed. But you're right, it just means they're double screwed cause of Stannis/Bravos, or triple screwed if you count the White Walkers.

I like having an OP. It's easy as gently caress to skip for those who don't like/need it, so there's no reason not to have it for those who do like/need it.

Quoting it should be a bannable loving offense, though.

Man, I am NOT loving this new actor for Gregor. He's supposed to be The Hound's OLDER brother. The hound looks 45-50. Conan from s1 was great. He seemed a true psychopath, worthy of all the hosed up stories. The guy from season 2 at least looked the part, even if he barely spoke. This dude looks 25, because he IS 25. He doesn't have the right 'feel' for it. He's the most babyfaced 6'9 bearded man I've ever seen, strongest man in Iceland or not.

Well at least they didn't get a pro wrestler I suppose.
