  1. Whats the point of the dire wolves?

    I have an odd theory that the direwolves foreshadow which Starks will survive the Long Night - so at this point, just Jon and Arya. If you notice so far, all the Direwolves have perished before their owners. If they also foreshadow cause of death maybe Sansa gets executed for some reason and Bran is killed by the Others? I know it's a long shot but as the OP states I really can't see the purpose of the direwolves otherwise - I really can't buy the CGI argument, if they will really wanted to save money/time they could have easily just had the direwolves MIA until important scenes.
  2. I've been reflecting over the events of this season, and I think it's pretty clear that many of the plots have only slightly passed book 5, or haven't passed at all. It really makes me wonder why they didn't just flesh out the events of book 4 and 5 more effectively and had them span two seasons... but anyway - the three major events that this season has built up to are: 1.) The Battle of the Bastards 2.) The Battle for Mereen 3.) Cersei's trial Save the BotB, both the other events were two major cliffhangers of book 5 that GRRM said himself would be resolved quite early in tWoW. Then it hit me that the last episode this season is actually titled "The Winds of Winter." This got me wondering if the intent of a majority of this season was actually to wrap up the lose ends from last season and have the next two episodes be the real transition into the major story arc for tWoW. If this was this case, I find it very likely that this week's BotB is meant to take place for the battle that occurs between Stannis' army and Ramsay. Maybe it's wishful thinking to think that Stannis may still have a shot, but this would also mean Jon's plot will be drastically different in tWoW (which I think many expect already anyway). What does everyone think?
  3. A flaming sword

    I agree with this 100%. We may end up having a character (maybe multiple) who resemble Azor Ahai, but there will be no literal Azor Ahai reborn that has some crazy power and saves the entire realm. As you mentioned, the red God religion seems to resemble Christianity the most, where Azor Ahai would be akin to Jesus. The major purpose religion serves in the series is for characters to explain what cannot otherwise be understood. To us, most of these mysteries are supernatural so it's easy to believe there may actually be some sort of god/high power at play, but for all we know, things like resurrections, white walkers, dragons, etc may just be part of the natural laws of the aSoIaF universe.
  4. CLEGANEBOWL.. Why it won't happen the way you think

    You could be right. I think it will Gregor v. Sandor in the books for sure though.
  5. She's back

    I for one thing it's going to happen, here's why: 1.) Why bring the Brotherhood back at all? The show is notorious for writing out arcs that aren't going to contribute to the grand finale, and I can't see the Brotherhood serving any significant role without LSH 2.) The show holds off introducing characters that don't play a big role until later on. Most notably this season was the altercation between Balon and Euron. If they did that in S3/4 viewers would just forget what happened. In the books, LSH has done nothing super significant yet, so it makes sense holding the big surprise rather than have had her at the end of S4 and then disappear for a season and a half. 3.) That was NOT the Brotherhood we met in S2 (or S3?). I always viewed them as a Robinhood like crew, the sheer brutality of their attack on innocents screams there has to be something much darker at their helm... Something that can only be the personified vengeance that is LSH.
  6. What Theon will do if Yara loses the kingsmoot?

    I think this is the most likely scenario. They need a way to tie the Greyjoys back into the "bigger picture" (otherwise they would have just been killed off D&D style...) and this is practically the only logical ways they can do it, as they have no other friends/allies in Westeros. I do think that Theon will somehow redeem himself with the Starks (in a more direct and bigger way than helping Sansa escape).
  7. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    I agree with this 100% In fact, I think he will be worse than both. Rickon is undergoing the most important stages of his mental development and has experienced nothing but confusion and suffering. He's going to grow up with a cynical point of view and seek to act in the ways he was damaged as a child.
  8. What should be Jon's new Targaryen name?

    Lol, Viserys is the male version of Visenya, and Verserion is (Dany's) dragon version. Anyways, I don't think he would change his name regardless. I think it would be stupid.
  9. The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    I'm sure this has been discussed many times before, but what do you guys think the fate of Jaime and Brienne will be? Here are some possibilities I've considered: 1.) The most unlikely case, take the scenerio at face value. Brienne somehow escaped her hanging, Sansa escapes the Vale and the Hound is still out there alive. Jaime realizes his love for her and they get it on? Very unlikely but you never know with Georgie. 2.) Brienne is leading Jaime into a trap to save the lives of Ser Hyle and Podrick. Perhaps the word she yelled out was "Jaime!" or "Kingslayer!" Although Brienne's fondness of Jaime and whole honour and oathkeeper thing makes this seem unlikely, being on the edge of death can change a person in such a way. Maybe Cersei will lose the trial by combat, and her and Jaime will be excecuted simultaneously. "We came in this world together, we will leave it together..." EDIT: I'm aware GRRM confirmed the word to be "Sword!" but the same idea applies. 3.) Brienne was hung, but the word she yelled before she died made Catelyn realize she was wrong to hang her. She passes on the "Kiss of life" to Brienne. Jaime described Brienne as looking 10 years older, but that could also just be a result of her feverish episode after her encounter with Biter. This however would explain Brienne's reason to lead Jaime into a trap. Both Beric and Catelyn were described to be "different people" in their ressurected forms. Or maybe it is a mix of one of these theories, or something completely different altogether! What do you guys think?
