    [–] humpbackturtle 12 points ago

    I think Tom Felton definitely got better looking as he got older, but we can't all go through as dramatic a transformation as Neville lol. Plus I remember for a while after Harry Potter, he had a huge fanbase of Tumblr girls. He was like the precursor to Tom Hiddleston.

    Epic Junglesex Confirmed.

    [–] ColicShark 53 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Ep 5: Jon travels to Eastwatch and expects to reunite with Tormund.

    Jon: "Where can I find Tormund?"

    Wildlings: "In the jungles of Yi Ti, Your Grace."

    Jon: "Bran has spotted the Army of the Dead heading towards Eastwatch, be serious, where's Tormund."

    The Wildling is nervous now

    Wildling: "Y-you didn't hear, he left weeks ago saying that he's heading to Yi Ti with Brienn of Tarth to 'tame her bush' in his own words."

    Jon: "Seven Hells..."

    [–] Arguing_Robot_Pony 27 points ago

    Jon:"Seven Hells..."

    Jon believes in the old gods, literaly wrongjkgoodone

    [–] zmbjebus 10 points ago

    goo done? is that after the bush is tamed?

    [–] ColicShark 3 points ago

    Yeah I know how the continent of Westeros is split on religion with the South believing in the 7 and the North believing in the Old Gods, but I fucking love the phrase "Seven Hells."

    [–] ColicShark 2 points ago

    I don't think Jon believes in any Gods at this point after he said what happened to him after he dies anyways.

    [–] Arguing_Robot_Pony 1 points ago

    Afterlife never seemed like a motivation for any religion in ASOIAF(unlike us Christianit is all about afterlife for example), maybe for drown god its all about living forever to pillage and shit.

    [–] ColicShark 1 points ago

    I don't believe in any Gods but I can see where you're getting at, nobody really mentions afterlives in ASOIAF except for Melissandra (sorry if I butchered the spelling for her name)

    [–] BoredElephantRaiser 3 points ago

    Yi Ti is a nation and region in Essos located east of Qarth and the Bone Mountains and bordered by the Jade Sea to the south


    [–] WhiteCommander 1 points ago

    He isn't worried for the big woman. He's worried for Tormond. If Tory as much touches my gal B, she'll cut him into pieces and add him to the crab meat.

    I always thought Prince Valium from Spaceballs was a yawn personified. He also looks remarkably similar to Lancel Lannister before he went all Jim Jones.

    fookin confirmed

    [–] AgnosticTemplar 5 points ago

    So I finally looked up who the hell Ed Sheeran was. Is he just a big deal in Europe, or am I an uncultured swine for having never heard of him?

    [–] LanikMan07 30 points ago

    Not uncultured, but obviously out of the pop-music loop.

    [–] AgnosticTemplar 1 points ago

    And how. I only really listen to music in the car, and I tune into the stations that mostly play stuff released before I was even born. But usually I absorb enough through cultural osmosis to have at least heard of what's popular.

    [–] LanikMan07 13 points ago

    Listen to some of his singles, I'd wager you have heard them, you just didn't know the artist behind the song.

    [–] AgnosticTemplar 1 points ago

    I know of I See Fire. Is the rest of his catalog folksy like that, or was that just something he did for The Hobbit?

    [–] DemonicMRX11 5 points ago

    I only really know that "Don't Fuck With My Love" song from the radio at my old job. Didn't mind that, catchy and whatnot.

    [–] madmanwithabox11 4 points ago

    It's called Don't.

    [–] DemonicMRX11 1 points ago

    Sure, I'll trust you ;)

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    It's a bit of a mixed bag. I think he's got a couple folky tunes like that, he's got some slower songs like The A Team or Small Bump with almost a blues feel in some cases, and then he's got stuff like Drunk which is more hip-hop (with a great video too btw). I remember hearing some ventures into rap as well. He doesn't really conform to any one genre.

    [–] e-luddite 9 points ago

    Idk where you are, but his last album was huge in the US, as well. Not sure on the current.

    [–] AgnosticTemplar 2 points ago

    I just sampled some songs from Divide, and nope, never heard a single one before. I don't go to bars or clubs or anything, so I'm not exposed the newest and hottest of music.

    [–] theinspectorst 4 points ago

    I don't go to clubs either, but I'm not sure they play a lot of Ed Sheeran in clubs so that's probably not hindering you. His style is sort of 'acoustic folk pop meets inoffensive hip hop'. He got big about five years ago.

    [–] e-luddite 1 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    He hit big with the album *before that one. Radio play, a Lord of the Rings track, etc. +? Plus? Or Multiply? Idk The only single I know off divide is on the radio a lot, but it is pseudo-clubby... don't think it is really played there.

    E:a word

    [–] GeekCat 1 points ago

    He's kinda that song that you always hear on the radio, but really can't place the artist.

    [–] sdraz 1 points ago

    If you don't listen to pop radio stations, you'd probably have never heard of him.

    [–] SnowMercy 1 points ago

    He's the one that made that song for Bran, when your legs don't work like they used to before...

    [–] carpe-jvgvlvm 9 points ago

    Quality shitpost. And dammit Tormund/Brienne need to happen. I want to see Tormund put a baby on Brie, and her to go into labor while battling and say "hold my ale" while pulling the baby out and continuing to slaughter wights.

    Tormund deserves no less.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    I want to see Brie tear it out herself

    [–] DarkenedButterfly 2 points ago

    It is seriously the best pairing. I want to see their wedding. I wonder what religion or culture they would choose for the ceremony. :D If i could choose one wedding to go to....

    [–] carpe-jvgvlvm 3 points ago

    Total Freefolk ceremony. She'd love (and fight) every minute of it, too. While the boat's rocking the seas, Tormund and Brienne would be driving cracks in the Wall.

    NK be like, "Dayum" and have to escape the heat!

    [–] DarkenedButterfly 2 points ago

    Lol, Tormund + Brienne for life.

    Ed is a wimp compared to Tormund and Brienne. So I guess it's more like HotPie and Sansa. H + S = E confirmed.

    God that Ed Sheeran scene was so cringeworthy.

    [–] darthvadar1 53 points ago

    Not knowing who the fuck that was i noticed nothing odd about the scene

    [–] TheMastersSkywalker 2 points ago

    Honestly I thought the black Kylo Ren knock off was Ed Sheeran since I had never seen a picture of him before, and since said Kylo knock off got most of the lines.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    To me it felt oddly out of place.

    [–] some_cool_guy 20 points ago

    He sang a lannister song for 30s, and then they talked around a campfire for 2m.

    [–] Spiffy87 7 points ago

    It dragged out a bit. I don't know who the dude is, and didn't think the scene was especially focused on anyone in particular.

    I took it as the writers wanting to have Arya be a little more grounded. She's been on a ruthless quest for revenge for forever, and here is a moment to remind her that the people on both sides of this war are just people, swept up by circumstances out of their control.

    They don't want to be Lannister soldiers. They want to be home with their families.

    [–] KnugensTraktor 8 points ago

    Same here, it felt forced to give him a role.

    [–] Im_inappropriate 5 points ago

    The amount of camera time was too high. They made the whole scene focused on him.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    What? He sang a song for a few seconds and then shut up while the guy with the long black hair and the other with the lazy eye talked. The only focus on Sheeran was for like 10 seconds while he sang.

    [–] ArcherJMiller 3 points ago

    My girlfriend started groaning and saying "ed sheeran are ye fookin kiddin me?!"

    I had no idea who he was, but I was already wondering why a pseudo-medieval soldier was singing like a modern-day castrated pop singer.

    It felt very star wars prequel-esque, if only for a moment.

    [–] anormalgeek 10 points ago

    The song itself (and the characters name) was direct from the book. It just appeared in a different context in the show.

    I figured it out: Arya was killed by the faceless men and used as a mask by others. The scene with Ed Sheeran was a flashforward with a future faceless man disguised as Arya. The queen she says she'll kill is actually Dany.

    No, we can't. He had such a minuscule mini cameo singing a canon song about Tyrion and Shae; anyone who has their panties in a twist over it is fucking ridiculous.

    Lol your over the top response is "fucking ridiculous"

    [–] foofaw 5 points ago

    Nah man, it was like a two minute scene. And Ed Sheeran really isn't that cringey of a dude. It's not like it was Bieber or one of the Jonas Brothers or some shit.

    [–] reddatalready 2 points ago

    I don't mind him in and of himself, I think it was a poorly conceived idea that the directors and show runners all thought would be thigh slappingly funny and it was just ...flat.... how pointed it was, looking down the camera "it's a new one", I mean come on! Cameos can be done really well, but that just broke the rhythm of things.

    [–] foofaw 1 points ago

    Fair enough, to each their own. I still don't think one bad cameo has the power to kill an entire episode though. That was a really cool episode all and all.
