  1. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    I don't believe in the leaks,but this is kind of interesting foreshadowing for those who do believe:
  2. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Sansa told Jon not to do what Ramsey wanted. That was advice. Dany relies on councilors. She really is lost with out them. Bran doesn't rely on counsel. I did say that Bran made tragic mistakes. Dany and Jon even more so because hundreds/thousands died. Everyone has their favorites in this story, but I have to say that Bran has impressed me the most. His governance has been the most competent in my eyes.
  3. Speculations, news, theories for season 7. (includes leaks )

    Bran has been a leader. When he held court at Winterfell, he listened to his subjects and counselors and made competent decisions. Bran took counsel but didn't completely rely on it either as he went against the Maester's advice. Jon, Robb, and Dany have really struggled with their leadership decisions even with councilors. Bran has made mistakes regarding Hodor, and the 3ER (Summer? Summer was sent to protect Bran and that is what he did.). Those were tragic mistakes. However, I believe Bran has learned. The show isn't showing me a Jon or Dany that learns/changes. They seem to make the same mistakes over and over again. Example: leaks

    Bran didn't lose Winterfell. Robb lost Winterfell when he trusted Theon. The forces were down South with Robb. Bran is helping all of Westeros by learning about the enemy. I think this is a story about finding good leadership. Bran was a good ruler over Winterfell when he was in charge. Robb made poor decisions and so has Jon. The two leaders who have proven to make the most thoughtful and wise decisions on this show have been Bran and Lyanna Mormont. My support of Bran is based on his heritage, but also on his record of leadership.

    Ned tried to be the "bigger person" with Cersei already. It was a mistake and it's being repeated. I just don't have patience for it.Especially since: (leaks)

    I just don't/didn't see this power hungry Sansa the D's have been trying to portray.She seemed all about family to me. I remember when she cried at a dinner with Cersei after Tommen asked about the possibility of Joff killing Robb. She kept talking about people "betraying her family". When LF told her she could be named Wardeness of the North she seemed very unsure. I am really not happy about power hungry Sansa because I feel that they show hasn't set it up for me. If they go that route then I feel they don't respect my time as a viewer. They need to set up plots.

    Maybe that is just my interpretation. I know that in the books and show Sam researches to find information about the Others at Castle Black, but he only finds very limited information. Jon sends Sam to old town to become a Maester to replace Aemon. I do remember in the books Maester Aemon telling Jon something along the lines that knowledge is a weapon or to arm himself with knowledge before he goes into battle. I think the books are pointing to Jon taking a more thoughtful approach.

    Unfortunately, according to this leak, enlisting Dany ends up in the WWs breaching the wall. The best course of action that is actually in the books is trying to get to know the enemy. Sam was sent to the Citadel to find out more about the enemy. It isn't exciting to watch on TV, but spending some time trying to figure out more about the WWs would make Jon a more competent leader. This is exactly what Jon was faulted for last season. He was going to fight an enemy he didn't know. Engaging an enemy in anyway that they know so little about is just unadvised. I guess the show really can't do much else, but it makes Jon look bad.

    So he is suppose to be naive and make poor decisions?
  10. Leaks discussion thread for season 7 vol. 2.

    I am catching up on all the posts I have missed, and I want to totally 100% agree with you on this one. I read the interview also. Bran is Meera's true King (in the books he is her Prince ) and she would never abandon him. The Reeds are completely loyal. When I heard that leak about Meera leaving Bran because he wasn't the good old Bran she knew before I knew it had to be wrong. The show left us with a very loyal and protective Meera. If she leaves Bran this season it will be at his behest on a mission for him. She will do as her King commands.

    No one can convince me that the show wasn't pairing Jon and Sansa off last year. Also, the show did it. It wasn't coming from me! I really thought that they were going to pair Sansa off with Small Jon Umber after they announced that casting. I think it (Jonsa) still is going to go somewhere, or at least I will be shocked if it doesn't. I think it should be Arya though since the outline points that way. Dany and Jon make perfect sense though. Every pairing has its flaws really.

    Didn't GRRM say that genetics in Westeros doesn't match up with our science? (I think I heard that)

    Is the castle Highgarden, Casterly Rock, or Kingslanding? I expect that in episode 1 Jaimie is still in Kingslanding. Also, if Podeswa is in Spain right now and stays there it follows that any current filming in Belfast is not for episode 1 or 7.
