A raccoon is not finished when he is defeated. He is finished when he quits.

theres probably a nearby village/settlement with people doing life things who dont give a gently caress who the current lord is or what they do

Yeah but if there's no one guarding the castle why won't those people or basically any ruffians just chill in this fancy ancient castle instead

But I already know the answer which is they don't give a drat about little details like this and it saves time and money from doing a pointless fight scene or an aftermath of one

aNYWAY,
tHAT'S REALLY ALL THERE IS,
tO REPORT ON THE SUBJECT,
oF ME GETTING HURT,


That first scene with Arya and the Freys was super satisfying, it felt a little abrupt last season when she killed off Walder after all that waiting but the payoff here was worth it and the effects on the Riverrun situation (as we saw with troops moving in) are starting to show.

I mean, yeah, that's the answer at the end of everything, but I guess one easy reason why no scrubs holed up in there is because it's too big to defend if you're just a couple dozen pirates - can't man all the walls, guard all the doors etc. Any such scrubs hanging out there who saw a huge fleet hove into view on the horizon probably would've got the gently caress outta dodge anyway.

I mean you could kinda justify it because Dragonstone is a pretty lovely place to be without a regular supply of food and stuff so there's not much point in chilling in a fancy castle if you're gonna stuff.

It is weird that it seemed to be in great shape though

They read there'd be 13 episodes left and automatically assumed there'd be 3-4 episodes of Talk max left, with the rest being action

It's the other way around and I'm looking forward to it

Dolash posted:

How the gently caress did Stannis manage to make this place seem so drab? That whole sequence was rad, Dragonstone is cool and I am ready to see Dany's Westeros campaign.

Also shame on you, Jaime - you knew where the Targ force was going to land and you do absolutely nothing to inconvenience their takeover of Dragonstone? No assassins hiding on the island? No sabotage team ruining mechanisms and compromising the fortification? Cersei buried a ton of wildfire under the Sept to kill all those people, she couldn't find a few jars to bury under the throne room?

They only got 13 episodes left, drat man we got to get Dany's rear end to Westeros at some point. Also the wildfire was there from the Mad King, she just knew about it. :nerd:

e: Anyway liked the episode, Arya is badass, and I'm rooting for the Hound to just rule everything at this point.

Seriously. I am so over Littlefinger but I'll take having him around for Sansa to lay sick burns on him.

He's that dude's dad, the one who was talking about his dad, on the boat. Its been a long time

This is why Arya paused when that dude was talking about boat dad. He's been on that boat for years and she knows it
