  1. More I think about it the more I think Cersei goes down last. The real villain of the story are not the white walkers. It is humanity and our propensity for warfare. The White Walkers are just the blowback. Why were the WW created? Because humans invaded the land of the COTF and they needed to defend themselves. Why is the AOTD so big? Because the crow vs wildlings fought and the wildlings did not get over the wall and were butchered. How did the WW get past the wall? A chain of events caused by human’s vying for power and fighting each other lead to a dragon being killed north of the wall. Feels like Cersei going down last would fit thematically.
  2. It is crazy they forgot that fire works on wights well, except for davos in 7x02 when he told Jon dragons would be useful. And except for the wights in 7x06 that died when they got smashed with dragon fire and then Jon remembered in 7x07 when he spoke to Cersei but other than that they totally forgot
  3. The White Walkers are certainly no Cylons
  4. That is a great idea that those night shoots are meant to symbolize the long night. What is interesting is that the shooting in Dubrovnick was during the day. Was the Long Night over by episode 4 or had it just not come yet to KL? Guess we will find out when we see them shoot on the KL set in march
  5. Lol... dude. Why are you bringing logic into this conversation? Clearly what really matters is what a handful of people on the internet think about something.
  6. If I had to bet I would bet his name is Aegon Targaryen. Don’t think they would pull a Asha/Yara on something so important as Jon’s birth name.
  7. How he ended up at the incest was really mind boggling. Crazy that someone would fall for a super attractive super accomplished woman.
  8. I thought it was to give Jorah a reason to sell himself back into slavery so he could be in the fighting pits. Will be interesting next year though when Jorah finds that the two people he credits for saving his life are in contlict due to Dany executing Sam’s father and brother.
  9. I am excited to see that
  10. Wait... are you saying a for profit business would not just burn money for no reason other than to throw off a few people on the internet who would consume their product anyways?
  11. Would be interesting if Bran was his bodyguard and wargs her Queensguard to show his power.
  12. From episode 4 most likely. Picture of Nutter showed up.
  13. http://www.thedubrovniktimes.com/news/dubrovnik/item/3949-photo-exclusive-jon-snow-meets-cersei-at-king-s-landing Just Jon and Cersei having a little chat with Cersei’s Queensguard around.
  14. Didn’t Robb have a whole ton of time invested in him? Way more than the books?
  15. GRRM specifically said the ending is the same one he envisioned back in the early 90s. That is why the outline is relevant. Of course he could be a.) lying or b.) mean ending in a very lose and general way. But that quote is why it is relevant and not bad analysis to go back to it. Bad analysis is to just wish it away because it could imply a story direction you don’t like.
  16. There are two blurry pics of what could be Daenerys as well.... or just an example of a Rorschach test with people wanting to see her
  17. Sansa helped win back Winterfell for her family already and used her skills as a lady to prepare WF for the long winter ahead and keep the anorth together for when Jon comes back. Additionally the main conflict for her of choosing her family over her ambition was resolved in season 7. She could easily die now and her arc can easily be complete. she doesn’t need to use her skills for something bigger and better. There is no greater political game she has to use her skills for. Will she die? Who knows. It is a pure storytelling choice on the part of the author and as such unpredictable. All the more so since this author deliberately strives to be unpredictable. But there is nothing inherent that makes her unkillable at this point other than a desire to see her story go somewhere else and her skills used for something bigger and better than just retaking winterfell and keeping the northern alliance together.
  18. Would it be a waste of time? This story does not seem like one that would endorse the view that the point of living is what it results in vs. the experience of just living.
  19. Of course George Martin would never be the sort of person to kill off a sympathetic point of view character in the final stretch of the story to create some unpredictibility.
  20. Sansa is the main character? Lol.... oh man. That is the funniest thing I have heard in a while.
  21. Sure. But not sure what your point is. We don’t know what way the outline was going. The question is does the outline necessarily mean Arya and Jon are end game in it and the answer is not necessarily. Certainly the idea could have been for Jon not to want to rule. Or it could not have. Both possibilities exist. Also, people can take up someone’s cause even if they don’t want to rule so they could still be a threat to stability. That is part of the reasin Maester Aemon took the black
  22. Very strong political reasons to unite two competing targ claims to avoid civil war. Especually following the targ civil war that would have taken place in the second volume. Not saying it is definite as both possibilities exist in the original outline and first time i read i lept to jon marrying arya conclusion, but jon finding out he is aegon targaryen would create political reasons to marry his aunt out of duty
  23. Vikings has effectively become an intergenerational show. Not sure how well it has pulled this off though. Seems to have really dropped off once the focus shifted from original lead. One huge challenge with a show like that is you are constantly changing stars and characters. If they could pull it off though could be cool.
  24. After reading Fevre Dream and Dying of the Light I am not sure it is even in George’s style to do long epilogues
