  1. It's hard for me to imagine D&D having their Saint Tyrion murder either Dany (or Jon) out of jealousy. Even book Tyrion isn't dark enough for that, I think. The director of the episode also said he wasn't trying to showcase a romantically jealous Tyrion with those shots, he was trying to show a politically concerned Tyrion. As in, Tyrion doesn't know what the consequences of this romance will be, and that unknown factor has him very worried.

  2. 'By night all banners are black' is a line from the books that I think foreshadows the ending of this series. I don't think the Others will be 100% defeated, just halted enough that humanity is able to regroup. So the survivors will be in a Long Night 2.0 situation. I think we will see the Night's Watch becoming like the national army of Westeros. So no more individual armies beholden to dozens and dozens of lords. Taking away the right of lords to raise their own armies marks the beginning of the end of feudalism imo. A major step towards breaking the wheel. Dany and/or Jon are both revolutionaries at heart I think, so they would probably accept limitations on their power for the greater good of society. Compensating the Lord's for their loss of control over armies by letting them form a council seems reasonable, and there is cannon precedent for "councils" in the books already. We might even see a "Magna Carta" type deal where Jon/Dany swear oaths to lead Westeros within certain limits, they might even both take the Night's Watch vow (I would expect the NW vows to be rewritten a bit, allowing for marriages, family, women to join, etc.). Jon/Dany can still be King/Queen with the throne passing to their child and House Targ restored without it being a continuation of the 'wheel that Aegon built'. With society so thoroughly broken down by the end of the story, they could make some rather drastic changes to the way things are run should they choose to. And knowing them, they absolutely would choose to.
  3. The Trident. Makes perfect sense for it to happen there. Though I think the WWs will actually win that battle and then move on to KL, only to have their army of the dead blown up by Cersei with wild fire. Dany's HOTU vision and all. No way the WWs are stopped in the North; we are getting a "Scouring of the North" type deal, no doubt in my mind.
  4. Missandei mentioned it in episode 3, when Dany says she wants to go after Euron herself. Tyrion in episode 6, when discussing the line of succession. Jorah in episode 7, when he says anyone in the North could take it upon themselves to kill her. Although I think Jorah says "crossbow" not arrow, but still. So 3 instances that I can recall. The number of times they brought it up worries me, especially after the way Ygritte died.
  5. Recent news points to them shooting S8 for much longer than usual, until as late as August 2018: Link If that happens, the show's not coming out until 2019. I agree George will release Winds eventually (not 2018 imo), but will he finish the rest of the series? No, I just don't believe he has it in him. Especially not after Winds will have basically taken him 8 years. He's been in a slump for about 20 years now, with each book getting harder and harder to write. I believe it's just naive to think he will finally snap out of it, or that the end will be easier for him to write.
  6. Yes, but as I saw someone on Reddit point out, D&D also had 3 different characters bring up the possibly that Dany could get killed by an arrow in S7 (Missandei, Tyrion and Jorah). That is how Ygritte died... I'm thinking we will get a Dany death, then a resurrection (of her and the baby she is carrying; you're right about all the baby foreshadowing, she has to give birth). That is why Mel is still being kept around imo (and possibly also Beric). Jorah could also factor into it with a kiss of life type deal, 'wake dragons from stone'. Resurrection would be yet another parallel between Jon and Dany. Personally, I am also expecting a new Night King and Corpse Queen at the end of this series (meaning the WWs aren't completely defeated, just halted enough for humanity to regroup and prepare for the Long Night 2.0). So the ending could basically be the dead led by 2 characters resurrected by ice magic (Jaime and Cersei imo), and the living led by two characters resurrected by fire (Jon and Dany). How does the world end? Some say in ice, some say in fire. George has mentioned that poem inspiring the title of the story hasn't he? Thematically, I think it all fits.
  7. Doubtful. Maybe they cast some "leader" of the GC to take Cersei's orders and name him JonCon, but it won't be anymore than a superficial nod to the books. That character woudln't have JonCon's personality or experience the arc George has him on. How could he with no Aegon? Though I do think the Golden Company in the show will be performing the same function as they ultimately will in the books....fight against Dany/Jon while they are trying to deal with the WW threat. In the show, it will be Cersei ordering them to do it, in the books it will be a greyscale maddened JonCon after Aegon is dead. JonCon will eventually be attacking Rhaegar's true son...his entire arc is meant to be a tragedy imo. One of the worst in the series.
  8. The Cleganebowl is real. It's always been real.
  9. I don't know about an article, but here is a video where he talks about it and makes it seems like he's more concerned about the consequences of this romance, instead of being jealous of it: Link
  10. I just don't share your disgust over the incest aspect of it. I've had like 6 years of expecting it to happen to get used to it. George has permanently altered my morals I guess, at least when it comes to this story. Breaking Bad made me root for Walter White, even when he was objectively being a piece of shit. George got me rooting for incest because I love Jon and Dany so much. That's just where I'm at
  11. At this point I wouldn't expect Winds from him in 2018 regardless of what the show does. He just doesn't have it in him to finish this series, I think. Creatively spent. Edit; meant "Wouldn't" expect Winds in 2018, not would.
  12. They wanted that wight polar bear more than they wanted Ghost, I guess. Wight bear was nice, but I would have preferred Ghost.
  13. 1, it wasn't about sex. It was about romance. I actually like Jonerys as a couple, unlike most people on this forum, but the way Podeswa handled it wasn't romantic to me. It was just abrupt, like ripping off a band aid. 2, this is Rant and Rave. I'll rant about what I like, whether it's justified in your eyes or not. So take your 'desperate nerd, just go watch porn' shit and piss off.
  14. Winterfell plot. I don't feel like breaking it down in detail. Just no. Rhaegar appearing for all of 5 seconds. Very lame. The Boatsex was pretty disappointing. I've been looking forward to that for months from the spoilers, but the execution was lackluster. For one, it lasted like 20 secs total. Missandei/Grey Worm got like 2+ mins. They didn't even show their first kiss, which should have been romantic....just warped to them naked in bed. How do you fuck that up Podeswa? Leaving the fate of Tormund and Beric unclear also annoyed me. Either show them dead or show them getting away, don't leave it hanging. Stannis 2.0. On the plus side, I'm actually not feeling very hyped for S8 right now, since I know D&D will fuck it up. So the fact that it's probably not coming out until 2019 isn't bothering me that much anymore.
  15. I'd be stunned if she didn't have a baby with the way they keep bringing it up. What I think is gonna happen for Dany is basically a trade-off of Dragons. Drogon will die, but Dany get another black dragon in his place (Jon). She might lose both of the other dragons too, or at least just Viserion. If Rhaegal lives (he was named after Rhaegar, The Last Dragon, maybe that's a hint), I think he gets a rider who is not Dany. So Dany will no longer be a dragon rider in the end, but she will remain the Mother of Dragons of this story, only the dragons will be some little Targling(s) she made with Jon. That seems bittersweet to me. A home and a family at the cost of her dragons.
