Contains some vague spoilers about episode 5
I'm getting a bit annoyed by the stupidity of supposedly talented characters.
I know that Jaime has just experienced a crushing defeat, but why is he so convinced that Team Daenarys is invincible? King's Landing controls the seas and the ports and have the backing of the Iron Bank so they are just fine for food supplies. They could hold up for years without any trouble. The Dothraki are basically just light cavalry, which is fine against infantry, but not exactly equipped to siege a castle. Her Unsullied have been partly destroyed. She isn't able to storm Kings Landing unless she deploys her three dragons. But surely that's not so hard to fend off. Build shit loads of those ballista's and have them placed on the battlements of your castles and in strategic ground positions with teams to operate them, longbow-men to aim at the dragon riders, hot tar can be flung at them, there is lots they could do. Meanwhile use your gold to buy assassins and try and take out the Queen. Hence, Jamie, one of the supposedly most astute soldiers in the show, is actually pretty dumb, and even favoured surrender.
Also that shield wall they built to defend against the Dothraki was rubbish lol. Why did they position spearmen in the rear?
@SDGooner - if Arya has any skill then she already knows Littlefinger is playing her, and is letting him lead her on, but I don't give the show that much credit, so yeah, he's probably duped her, which isn't surprising considering how obvious her spying was - leaning in plain view against a wooden post lol.
And that plan to go north of the wall to catch a walker - FACE PALM. Jon Snow takes the prize for being a total bellend once again.
