RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!

Hey folks! So I’m going to be away from the blog for a few days – which means I won’t be covering Season 7 Episode 2 at the normal time, sorry – but I wanted to let you know that doesn’t mean you’ll be without content. Politics of the Stormlands Part III is already scheduled to go up on Monday, and I’ve also scheduled a discussion thread to go up on Sunday so you can talk about Episode 2 to your heart’s content.

In the meantime, we got some stuff on the Tumblrs:

    Greetings, Maester Attewell!

    Once more, you have presented us with a flawless and wonderful series of posts showing an incredible insight in the world of Westeros. The least thing I can do is to shout an almighty “BRAVO!” and an almighty “THANK YOU!” for devoting so much time and energy in the blog.

    I truly hope you will enjoy your break and wish you the very best.

    1. I clicked through the Dragon Demands video, looking at the on-screen text. Yeesh, that sounds like a serious screw-up on D&D’s part – and kind of bizarre, given that they’re this late in the series and have already done at least two battles.

    And they wanted Jon to EMOTE, man! As opposed to showing him commanding his side of the battle, actually demonstrating on-screen that he’s fit to lead the North . . . . but I’ve made my peace with that, and accepted that the whole “King in the North” bit afterwards is him getting praised and credited as a leader because they managed to win (not that the show is necessarily showing that).

    2. Good piece on Hardhome and Jon’s bad decisions. I think the bad decision to send a follow-up group to try and save . . . whomever at Hardhome is emblematic of how his leadership is starting to suffer because of his isolation from allies and friends. If Sam were there, he’d probably be advising Jon to let it go.

    • 1. Yeah, and the other videos don’t present any better an image – his video on the Dorne plotline from Season 5 really points the finger at Benioff and Weiss for choosing to film at the Alcazar which created impossible limitations on the shoot.

      2. Thanks! Agreed, Jon needed a wider circle of advisers who could push back on him at that point.
