This topic may have been posted a million times before, but I would just like to know, what the fuck is going on in Asshai, Stygai, and The Shadow Lands. I have my own theories, but I'd like to see what other people think. Please elaborate!
In respect to the burning of the Tarly's D&D have pretty much screwed up the story royally, and are setting the stage for all the good guys to take power and all ride unicorns on rainbows to the wall and destroy the Night King with the power of love (In this case Sam taking Hornhill). GRRM's original outline and ending won't get them the same ratings as tits and dragons and fan service will.
