Re: Ex Machina

What I still don't really grasp is Why do Ava and Kyoko stab Nathan to death? Doesn't a tremendous amount of data come with ideas of justice and forgiveness as well as how to stab someone with a kitchen knife? And why the hatred towards Caleb? My best guesses: I don't really know how sentie...

There was a lot of ambiguity in a lot of scenes Did Brienne kill Stannis or did she capture him? We never actually saw her kill him. Did Theon and Sansa commit suicide, or did they slide down the wall/jump down and land in enough snow (even though it was melting). I suspect Myrcella is actua...

Hmm, based on episode 1 it seems they're deviating from the books quite a lot now. Some things I understand for what are probably pacing issues. Others I'm curious to see where they lead. I think one of my favorite lines from the books might be in this season :D

I just discovered that if you want smooth roundabouts, have avenues ending on a roundabout made out of highway. Highway always is one way and there aren't any traffic lights. I used to use one way avenues for this, but highways works so much better!
