Thank God I foundHardy because if I 1. didn't 2. didn't know beforehand what kind of crap Thrones is gonna pull off in the recent episode, my heart would break so much harder than it did
Good Lord, Locke. I just want Hardy to be driving a car and talking in this accent forever. The only thing that would make it better is if he was shirtless
Also I saw most of Peaky Blinders. What a terrific show. Tom's character doesn't have enough scenes, though, he is only in 5 episodes so far and has about 1 scene per episode but...
....he is so amazing in it. He's totally insane but in a sexy I wanna ride you but you are crazy kind of way not you burned your daughter and I cannot look at you anymore crazy kind of way.
Also the soundtrack consists just out of Nick Cave and PJ Harvey's songs so it is absolutely divine.
I cannot even talk about that Stannis scene. In one episode he went from my fav character to me feeling like those women who write love letters to killers on death row. I love him so much, but he burned his child. BUT he burned her so that the world was saved. BUT he burned her. BUT he also probably saved thousands of other little girls. Oh Gods, what shall I do?
This is so fucked up, so fucked up. The writing in this scene, the set up to it and its timing were so wrong. This could have been done and we would still root for him no question, if it was established properly this is his only choice and if Shireen doesn't die now, she will die with the entire world. But the way it was in the show, where the army was not on the brink of death yet, nor was Shireen, it is in direct contradiction with everything we know about the character - to the point that I myself, who know how crazy the writers can get, denied there is any chance, any chance Stannis would allow for Shireen to be burned.
There is a shot of Stannis taking out his sword in the promo:
I'm so weak. He is too hot for me to abandon him.
Get this - spoilery screencaps from finale leaked. One deals with Cersei and the other one? HUGE SPOILERSshows Selyse hanging. She apparently commits suicide due to guilt. So Stannis is single now. A week ago I'd be like oh my God yes marry Sansa! It's gonna be awesome! Now? I'm dead inside but....Deep, deep down he is a good man. And he wouldn't have need to burn Sansa. Plus he is so handsome and they both went through hell. Unlike Ramsay at least he'd treat her like a lady. Which probably means that D&D won't make one good thing out of this hellhole of a plot - have Stephen show Stannis' guilt and grief over Shireen and have him killed by Brienne or something. Oh, Jesus. END OF SPOILERS
The biggest leaked thing is SPOILERS the shot of Jon seemingly dead and bleeding END OF SPOILERS I'm gonna be furious if this is what closes the episode and allegedly 'breaks the Internet'. I'm sure even the non book readers guessed something like this can happen.
The two reasons I watch the show is Stannis and possibility of Stoneheart. Where is she? I need her now more than ever.
I'm serious -
Where is she?
Meanwhile, Kit Harington was hilarious on late night shows lately.
Moving on to more pleasant things, I'm seeing Spy tomorrow and I'm so psyched. Jason in the comedy for the first time in 15 years!
It looks hysterical!
I'm going with my friend who is also a big fan of Melissa but doesn't like Jason much. I keep telling him - it's better if he is in the movies they show on our TV stations, him not someone like Ryan Gosling. At least Statham looks like a man.
New Veep episode was so fantastic. Iannucci also did an episode like that in the final season of The Thick of It - just the deposition scenes, we didn't get to see anything outside the room. It was even more impressive with The Thick of It because the episode was an hour long, but Veep was great too, I particularly loved Mike and Gary being interviewed.
Hannibal....so I haven't seen last episode yet but I finally finishes season 2 and I saw the new season premiere. Bedelia....Anderson still walking around as if she was heavily sedated. Thank God the show still has some amazing visuals.
What's new with me? On top of Stoneheart Anxiety and Stannis heartbreak, Gustav has been photobombing me relentlessly this week:
I had 5 days long weekend last week so I was finally able to watch GoT live, while drinking wine. Thank God, this was this episode I happened to be able to drink while watching, because there is no way I could have watched it sober. 4 AM and I was left sobbing and in disbelief. Good times.
I'm not gonna be online much on Sunday and Monday. If the definitive word on final shot of the episode doesn't surface until Sunday, I'm in lockdown mode. I want to go into the misery unspoiled. I'm kinda playing a Russian roulette here - only with fully loaded gun. If she is not in, I'll be livid and my head explodes. If she is in and I see her after 3 years of waiting I don't know what will happen to me. It's probably gonna be like in this episode of South Park where Kenny's dad had nose bleed and at at the same time he was puking and shitting himself. So if I'm not online on Sunday and Monday - I just haven't had the chance to see finale yet. But if I'm not online and probably furiously ranting on twitter on Tuesday? Oh, boy.
