    Tyrion fell victim to the same disorder that changes most men : Blonditis. Luckily, he survived in the end. Most men never recover.

    George can write. Dumb and dumber can't. Simple.

    I think everyone knows this by now, but what happened was D&D and HBO cut out way too many important details and characters and they had no fucking idea how to get the characters where they needed to be. Not enough Greyjoys, no Young Grif, and extremely key details of Bravos being botched severely.

    Thank you Robert. I agree with your analysis. I appreciate the thoughtfulness you put into these videos. I hate that these comment sections have Become overrun like this. It reminds me of MAGA twitter... rabid racists deflecting to Obama about everything. I loved the last season. Your videos are perfect and allow my imagination to fill in the blanks. Thank you for that 🙏🏾

    Because DnD believed their own hype and thought they was why the show was good. They pissed off George so he said fuck you write your own script and this is the result.

    I think you're being too generous saying that Tyrion was on top of things during his time as the hand of the King. He was almost completely focused on Cersei and ignorant to the motivations of the other players. That allowed Littlefinger and Varys to run circles around him. I mean how smart could he be when he was handed a crossbow and told which secret passage leads to Tywin's room, but that he shouldn't go their and kill him, honestly. He brought down his own house with a bit of pushing in the right direction. He even continued to rely on his enemy after the fact, oblivious to how he had been manipulated. Tyrion has never seen the bigger picture about anything. He lives in a bubble where the only things that matter are those things that directly relate to himself or his past. He's not smart. Tywin had the right of it. He's cunning at best.

    This is the problem with game of thrones. Seasons based off the book were so good that everyone assumed the bad writing was actually a plot. I suspect there's a hint of this in the books as well, everything has a theory when there's not necessarily one, but that's a consequence of how many years it's taking to get the last books.

    Simple answer:
    GRRM IQ : 240
    D&D IQ: 120

    D&D are incapable of clever thoughts without source material to point the way. GRRM was their GPS.
