I really have loved the #asoiafreadalong hosted by @books-and-cookies and I’m so glad I got was able to find all the books second hand to annotate.
GRRM puts so much deliberateness into this story; hardly anything is just filler, even if it’s tedious backstory and names. Names mentioned once seemingly in passing play roles later, everyone is connected somehow, and characters get things wrong (Robb calls Ser Beric Ser Deric, Sansa calls Sers Hobber and Horas Slobber and Horror). And the DREAMS! So much is hinted at in dreams, there are so many supernatural elements that don’t seem supernatural at first.
There’s a reason this is one of my favorite series and I’m so glad to be able to follow along and see other people’s thoughts.
[part 1] [part 2] The Flash Episode 3.11 “Dead or Alive” DC COMICS’ GYPSY ARRIVES ON EARTH-1 – H.R.’s (Tom Cavanagh) past catches up with him when a bounty hunter with vibe powers named Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) arrives in Central City to bring him back to Earth-19 to stand trial for his crime. It turns out inter-dimensional travel is illegal on their Earth. H.R. surrenders but when Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) find out that H.R.’s only hope would be to challenge Gypsy to a fight to the death, they intercede and Cisco offers to fight Gypsy instead. Harry Jierjian directed the episode with story by Benjamin Raab and Deric A. Hughes and teleplay by Zack Stentz
Please use responsibly, and remember that individual staff writers do not have control of story arcs. Ideally, this list will be updated as episodes and writers are added, and we can use it to point out specific Iris moments we appreciated and to let those writers know what we want to see more of for her and WA in their episodes.
I won’t include freelance writers for now since there’s no guarantee they’ll ever come back to do another episode, and I also won’t include writers who left after season 1 or 2A unless they’re a staff writer on a sister show like Arrow or LOT.
