One small way Dorne could have been better in S5

Postby caravaggio2000 » Thu Jun 11, 2015 7:23 pm

Dorne would have been a lot better this season if they made one change. They should have gone from the scene where Jamie and Bronn meet up (House of B&W I think) directly to seeing them in jail after a failed attempt to sneak into Dorne. I think (show-wise) you'd still have gotten everything out of it (Sandsnakes, Doran and Jamie's conversation).

Then there would have been more time for Doran... or Doran and Jamie if Doran wasn't enough by himself for the producers.

They clearly didn't have time or money for any action stuff in Dorne. In hindsight I think the way they should have gone about it is, after Jaime and Bronn get dropped off by the ship and after the Sandsnakes get the info from the ship captain, the Sandsnakes should have been the ones to confront Darnel and Cooper instead of random Dornishmen. Then the Sandsnakes bring Jaime to Doran, they negotiate a peace, which is the thing that sets off Ellaria and the Sandsnakes (rather than just having them being bloodthirsty war-mongers).

I don't know if a "small" change could have saved the storyline in Dorne. I think to do this right you'd have to include the Arianne character. Pick a great actress to play her and go from there. IMO, she is the most interesting character in that part of the story and I think the producers missed out on that.

Even with Arianne, the lack of Fake Aegon and the Quentin story leaves a huge hole that the choice of story they used for the TV just can't fill in. It is what it is I guess....

After the finale, I think the potential Dorne plot becomes much more interesting. Prior to that I'm in total agreement that it seemed convoluted and hastily done; it's tough to portray a Doran who appears to do nothing in the books for so long but actually has a plan, when it comes to TV entertainment, and the Sand Snakes are essentially diluted into one of them getting all the action and focus which is definitely a disservice to their book-world coolness.

For more interest, have Jaime obsess over the treachery of the Sand Snakes in killing his daughter until he finally stands up, looks into the camera and shouts: "Enough is enough!!! I've had it with these motherf*ing Snakes on my motherf*ing brain!!!" Then introduce Ser Samuel of Jackson, Lord of Kickass.

I would have liked 2 changes to the Dorne story line:

1. Let Doran be more the nuanced character he is in the books.

2. Actually develop the sand snakes as distinct characters, rather than the one with the whip, the one with the spear, and the one who likes to get nekkid.
