    1. I don’t suppose it would be worth it to take the Water Dance class if my knees are not working…..

    3. “And there is only one thing we say to Death…”

      “Stick him with the pointy end!” 🔪💀

      “Close enough.”

    4. Good old Syrio – I wished, he killed Meryn fucking Trant with a splinter of his wooden sword!
      How I enjoyed the dancing-scenes!

    5. Just heard in a prescription drug tv commercial:

      “Eczema is a debilitating condition — dramatic pause — but not today.”

      Jeez, is nothing sacred?

    6. This takes me back to S1, the episode that ends with Arya having her first dancing lesson. Ramin’s brilliant track “The Pointy End” starts playing, Ned walks in to watch, he smiles at first then starts having auditory flashbacks. He hears the swords clanging, men in battle, an ominous sign of things to come. Then we cut to black and Ramin’s track continues playing through the credits. Such a perfect ending, such brilliant art. There were so many great finishes to episodes in the early seasons where Ramin’s score took us into the credits and had me just sitting there absorbing it. I really hope he comes back for the spin off.

    7. (I’m wondering if he’d sign my waster sword?)

      One side: “NOT TODAY – Syrio Forel.” The other side: Miltos Yerolemou.

      Damn. I have no ear or aptitude for music. I can’t distinguish one character’s “theme” from another. I can’t recognize when a particular musical piece is being replayed or varied. I just hear haphazard collections of violin and drum sounds.

      I tried to learn how to play and read music when I was younger. Utter failure.

      I know Ramin’s music is awesome. It’s like its own character in a scene. Too bad I can’t savor it like a real aficionado. 😔

    9. cos alpha,

      With all the talk about potential Emmy nominations, I’m reminded that the REAL, significant awards are yet to be nominated and voted on:

      The Watchers on the Wall S8 Awards. I wonder when the nominations, preliminary rounds, and final voting will take place.

      More important: I hope we’ll also be able to have separate voting in all categories for the entire 73-episode, eight-season run.

      For Guest Actor, Miltos Yerolemou as Syrio Forel is my #1 and only choice. In just a few scenes he left an indelible impression. His words in S1 echoed throughout the remaining seven seasons – including callbacks by Arya in S3 (telling Lord of Light disciples Beric and Thoros that her god is Death), Jaqen 2.0 in S5 (“there is only one god; a Girl knows his name“), and Melisandre in S8e3 (“What do we say to the God of Death?“). And like her other unjustly killed friends Micah and Lommy, Arya never forgot Syrio, and she exacted justice on Meryn F*cking Trant for killing Syrio Forel.

      (By the way, although I confess to jumping on the Bella Ramsey/Lyanna Mormont Best Guest Actress train, upon rewatching and further reflection I’d vote for Essie Davis as Lady Crane for Best Guest Actress out of all eight seasons.)

      Syrio went out like a f*cking hero. I’ll never tire of watching a courageous Syrio respond to terrified little Arya imploring him: “Come with me! Run!”, by standing his ground and telling her:

      “The First Sword of Braavos does not run.”

      and then….

      Syrio: “What do we say, to the God of Death?”
      Arya:
      “Not today.”
      Syrio: “Go…”

      Miltos Yerolemou was just fabulous.

    10. Syrio got Arya, and knew just how to teach her to become a warrior without losing her humanity. “Opening your eyes is all that is needing…” from A Game of Thrones.

    11. Ten Bears,

      Meh it never gets stuck in your head or anything? It usually hits me afterwards then I go back and rewatch it or listen to the track on youtube. Enhances the emotion of a scene 100x imo.

    12. LatrineDiggerBrian,

      Nope. I’m afraid not. For me, musical themes are like Tyrion trying to understand his cousin Orson. Tyrion knew there was something going on in Orson’s head, but it was like trying to read a book written in a language he didn’t understand.

      The music does enhance the emotion of a scene for me. (Good example: the swelling of the music to a crescendo in Jon’s KitN scene in S6e10.) I just don’t recognize the “themes.”

    13. LL of Darkwater,

      At the first one in Nashville, we got two training swords signed. “What do we say to the God of Death?” on one, and “Not today.” with his signature on the other. Mounted them crossed on a plaque with a signed photo.

      Miltos is a lovely, friendly guy. His water dancing courses are open to everyone, regardless of disability, although you can’t be bashful and hide, because he’ll find you! I tried to disarm him but just basically twisted my wrist and made him laugh.

      All of his appearances benefit a UK mental illness charity, so he usually asks for an extra donation in their benefit.

    14. Grayven Reyne,

      Thanks so very much for passing along the information as well as letting me know he signed your swords! What a great guy!

      I’ve reserved my ticket (watching my mail like a hawk) and still ironing out some wrinkles that might prevent my attendance (sad, that); however, after reading your response, I’ll reserve an autograph session ASAP.

      Now, to try and figure out which session to reserve – if I actually make it to the Con, I wanna see everything! Decisions, decisions.

      (Thanks, again!)

      Yes, he was.
      The only one to come close was Pedro. When he strolled in passing his hand over the lamp flame, I sat up and thought “Who IS this guy?”
      I would really HATE to choose between them.
