Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)
« on: Today at 02:44 PM »
It was a week of long awaited returns!

Very happy they gave us back Benjen and none of that "Cold Hands" red herring stuff. Guy knows how to make an entrance!

We finally got back to Walter Frey after forever too. Man, that wretched old goat cannot die soon, or violently, enough. His justice has been a long time coming and I am thinking it will be sweet. It had better be.

Also good to see little brother Tully and the mention of Blackfish. Surprised the Lannisters would agree to send a force to the Riverlands but I guess they pay their debts and all that. Puts Jamie on a collision course with Brienne again, on opposite sides.

Littlefinger should take his Knights of the Vale back down there too, can't imagine he is very happy with Frey killing the love of his life.

Sam's dad was an unbelievable prick, as expected. I was hoping he would stand up to him at dinner but no such luck. At least he wised up and got Gilly and Sam Jr out of there.  And nicked the sword. (What's up with all these minor houses like the Tarleys and Moormonts rocking the Valerian steel anyway?)

Everything with Arya the past two seasons feels like a complete waste of time now. How do they give one of the best characters the absolute crappiest storyline? Get her back to Westeros kicking ass please.

We should probably be more concerned about the FOUR WEEKS of re-shoots Disney bosses allegedly just ordered after this movie tested so badly...yikes.

Also surprised to read both Mara sisters were in the running for the lead role.  Kate would have been the bomb I think...

So overwhelmed by last week's episode, I couldn't even post about it.  :D

That was some great stuff...hard to even remember anything else after the Night's King showed up.

Am guessing he somehow ties into the reason the White Walkers got out of control, definitely does not resemble the rest of them.

How did they get the ability to create other white walkers though, as shown with Craster's baby earlier? Or wights for that matter? Or is that just something that came courtesy of the Night's King?

freaking Hodor, heartbreaking. His whole life was basically fixated on that one purpose no one even realized until the end. Will he end up as a gigantic wight this week though?

They sure got there in a hurry from Hardhome. Guess they are waiting for winter to really hit before making the push south.

With most of the modern lines I collect ending (Walking Dead, Pacific Rim) or on hiatus (SW 6") I've been refocusing my attention on older stuff lately.

Today I received a totally boss MISB V "Enemy Visitor" 12" figure which I won on eBay recently. This thing is so great. Pity we never got the 3&3/4" figures.

These have finally hit an attractive clearance price at Target. I picked up some extra 5th Element figures yesterday for $2.98 a pop. Not quite as good as the $2 blowout at Barnes and Noble, but close.  ;D

Also grabbed a Terminator and Gracie Law this morning. Not sure what I will ultimately end up doing with these guys but I find that price hard to pass up for the value.

Really wish I could find some Gremlins because that's the one ReAction line I never picked up despite some interest.

Yeah, they were like $8.74 when I checked this morning...that is a great price. I wouldn't mind having another green helmet guy or two, but no way of telling what you would actually receive.

Just a big old let down in my book. Seriously, none of those dopes got eaten? Ruben Blades was about the most interesting character outside of Strand but I guess he won't be back? Meh.

It's like zombies are just an afterthought on this show. No real sense of imminent danger there like we see on TWD.

And back in August already? That seems too soon...

It was a challenge to sit through 90 minutes of I don't know WTF is going on here, but Preacher looks potentially promising. I worry about shows that generate so many questions right off the bat but hopefully they get to it all in time.

I literally cannot understand a single word out of the Irish guy's mouth either. I'm gonna have to watch the re-airing with subtitles...

That finale was intense.  Guessing right until the end on who bites it (I figured it out when SPOILERS Lincoln grabbed Daisy and they didn't show her necklace again  /SPOILERS).  I thought when Mac hugged Daisy, that was probably the most powerful moment of the entire series.

I'm also totally confused by the epilogues.  Daisy becomes Robin Hood - that's easy enough.  But the rest of the threads - total mystery.

I'm worried we'll still see Ward again.  There's the matter of that Kree artifact he dug up - the "only thing" that can destroy him.  That seems like a pretty major plot point to just leave out there hanging.  I don't think we were ever told what happened to it.

I thought about that too, but came up with a good explanation. That Kree artifact was actually built into the warhead and was part of the activation system through which the terrigen gas or whatever would be dispersed. IE: the technology was a necessary component to facilitate the re-creation of the experiment that created HIVE. So it did end up killing him really.

I thought the close up reveal of Hive's true face with the Coulson hologram was awesome too. I'm sure it wasn't cheap to pull off.

The spin-off with Bobby and Hunter was axed? Damn. They need to get them back on the regular show now. I miss those two. Not too sad about Agent Carter, it ended at a good place and had become something of an effort to watch anyway, IMHO.

Last night's finale was good. They did a nice job keeping you guessing who was going to buy it right up until the end. I was very nervous whenever FitzSimmons were on screen. (Would have been nice to see a 6 months later cutaway to them in the Seychelles at the end there, but whateves)

The death itself was sort of meh to me, but I guess they are going to use it to jack up Daisy's character for awhile now.

I didn't fully grasp either ending. Coulson is an agent now and no longer the Director? Who's the Director? Hoping this is just a temporary thing until they hunt down Daisy. And maybe they should have had the fast chick follow her? Just sayin...

I figured they would bring the Mad Scientist dude into the fold, but WTF was that at the very end? Did we just see Jocasta? Or something else???

Interesting choice...pretty obscure character selection. Was hoping the Tudyk-droid would be the SDCC exclusive, but this is ok too I guess.

Tormund giving Brienne the eye was hilarious.  :D

So what was the secret the High Sparrow told Tommen that he went right ahead and told Cersei? I'm guessing it was something to the effect of "don't try anything with Margaery or I'll paint the streets red with her blood".

That's the only end game I really see for Cersei there, provoking the Faith Militant into killing the Queen. It's not like she is going to somehow kill the whole Tyrell army off once they are in the city. That would be stupid anyway since they need them right now. I would be disappointed if the Queen of Thorns got outsmarted by Cersei though. She's too sharp for that.

The Dothraki stuff was all kinds of awesome especially since it managed to redeem a storyline that had grown tiresome already. If only they could do likewise with the stuff in Mereen. Everyone seems to agree Tyrion is being a jackass with his 7 year plan, and I can't disagree. He's just going to end up pissing everyone off. Even more.

John and Sansa was a nice consolation prize for Stark fans. Sad to see John leaving LongClaw behind though. :(

Yay, Littlefinger sighting. Is he really serious about sending the knights of the Vale north though? I can never believe anything that comes out of that dude's mouth.

RIP Osha/Tonks.  :'(

No $10 figures at any of the Ross' here... :(
