  1. So, how's Jon going to be introduced to Rhaegar?

    I'm still not convinced of R+L=J. I know the tv show is the tv show and the books are the books but: Apparently we will get the ToJ in season 6. If this is the case, we will most likely get a confirmation that Jon is not Ned's son and Lyanna Stark way his mother (all speculation). I assume that would then spill the beans on Jon Snow's father as well. Since the tv show is a visual thing it would be nice to have JonSnow's father visualized for the casual watcher but there aren't any Rhaegar Targaryen casting rumors. But the "best knight ever" with the legendary sword has been casted and the tv invented Hardhome episode showed Jon Snow's fighting skills ... .. and it makes me wonder, and it makes me wonder. Yes there are two path you can walk on, but in the long run, there's still time to change the road you're on ...
  2. I just found confirmation from GRRM about r + l = j.

    Been there, done that. Not convinced. This forum runs a few years and the R+L=J thread is nearing its 200th edition. Folks there turned every rock thrice at least. You just found where Others failed?
  3. Season 6 - what we know (MAJOR SPOILERS)

    Following this thread for a while I still can't figure out who is this Major you are trying to spoil? ;-)
  4. The Heresy essays: X+Y=J : Arthur + Lyanna=J

    Hey, I know the show is the show and the books are the books but if I were planning to reveal who the parents of the hero really are in season 6 would I cast  a. the father of the hero for flashbacks b. the best friend of the hero's father for flashbacks   I'm not in making television so I might be totally wrong but from a gut feeling I would go with a.
  5. Season 6 - what we know (MAJOR SPOILERS)

    If the White Walker army appear during Snowbowl (how fitting!) the humans might unite?
  6. New forum layout

    Same here. The new design is basically unusable on an iPhone. I don't mind the layout change but this sucks.
  7. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    So Sam is with his parents roughly around the time the Kingsmoot takes place? Interesting. Would be a nice parallel buildup to have Euron raid Horn Hill and do to the Tarly family what he did to that other lord in the books. The way the show is streamlining characters I can imagine D&D going for this. A bit far fetched, I know, but with Arya returning to Westeros by episode 9 or 10 maybe she takes over the LSH part? From her development into a psycho killer and her FM training that would fit better than Sansa becoming LSH, wouldn't it? That would also work with Nymeria and her pack.  
  8. Season 6 - what we know (MAJOR SPOILERS)

    And, IMHO, it makes more sense for the Northern Lords to group around Sansa, DeadJon or even Rickon than to follow Stannis. Basically Stannis was needed to save the wall. GRRM's plot has fat to trim.
  9. Season 6 - what we know (MAJOR SPOILERS)

    On the other hand that matches perfectly with the tv show after season 5 and the books after ADWD. Mission accomplished.  
  10. Season 6 - what we know (MAJOR SPOILERS)

    Yes, especially on a smartphone while riding the train.  
  11. The supposed 'major female' death in the premiere.

    Also, we haven't heard anything from Carice, have we? Next to Ellaria being executed Melisandre sacrificing herself to revive Jon Snow is the other option.
  12. Jon will die before Arya because of their farewell line, paraphrased: "come spring they'll find you with a needle in your hands". Daenerys will die because of her reunion scene with Drogo beyond the wall. UnCat will not survive the encounter with Brienne and Jaime. Bran will stay a tree. Does that count as living? Sansa - no idea
  13. Not really rant and rave, but I rewatched Mother's Mercy yesterday with friends, two bottles of red wine, audio off and listening to the Bloodhound Gang's Hooray for Boobies. Highly recommended. 😂👍🏻
  14. The supposed 'major female' death in the premiere.

    If it is in the first episode it has to be Ellaria: - logical conclusion from Myrcella's death - shows that Doran can be tough - Areo has to behead someone - showEllaria is basically bookArianne minus the fAegon part, so her arc is done
