Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I'm told four episodes is something of a standard for screeners. There need not be any great thinking that went into choosing that number.

    I thought that the point of the Melisandre & Jon scene was to drive home that Jon isn't just the bastard of a serving wench, he has royal blood. From the way she was talking, she was planning to make a shadow baby with him to go do some Bolton-slaying.

    and yet i get the impression that in the books she doesn't know that yet. A quote like

    " I look in the fires for the king but all I see is snow" but I can't be bothered to find the exact phrasing,

    So you think both Selmy and Grey Worm are definitely dead? I don't know how we can assume that. Selmy probably is, but I got the impression we'd be seeing Grey Worm in hospital next week.

    This is getting to be a shocker of an adaptation at this stage. Inconsistent characterisation and lack of clear motivations, book dialogue being repurposed in ways that makes no sense (Littlefinger, whose presence at Harrenhal makes no sense, gets the tourney stuff, stealing from both Ned and Meera Reed…it doesn't even have any relevance to Sansa's situation apart from 'hey stuff about my aunt I didn't know'), and no thematic resonance. The Dorne plot is a clusterfuck, and that's being charitable, especially given the three Sand Snakes and Ellaria are all Obara for some reason.

    One of the things I am finding really interesting about the show so far is the tension being played out between the characters who are now moving beyond the books and those whose stories are meeting or also slightly subverting their book points.
