  1. I think book Varys is a Targaryen (Blackfyre) and his book goals are to see the Targs back on the throne. Show Varys is never mentioned as a Targ (would've fit in nicely as a scene in Season 6 ep 10) This whole "I just want a just ruler, not ME of course, someone else could do it, I just need to approve them" is kinda whack. Especially since Varys knows all the tunnels in KL but they mentioned in the show how all the builders were put to the sword to keep the secret passages safe.
  2. So 4 episodes in and no WW, or NK? Will this be the season of "Jon and Samwell try to tell everyone the army of the dead is coming and no one listens until the final episode of this season when they arrive at kings landing while everyone is out fighting wars in Dorne and Highgarden?"
  3. yeah but the plot lines, many of which are based in a political or economic motive, work better when the story is coherent and without obvious holes. Having the bank, then not having the bank return impedes the flow of the story (Imho) Although the plot now contains many holes and I'd like to see a "Good v Evil" thread: Who is good and who is evil? The CoF once thought WW were good, the first of the FM thought he was good.
  4. So the IBB was backing the crown (Lannisters) and when Baelish was master of coin it was mentioned that they were in debt to the IBB for I believe 4 million dragons which is one of the reasons for the IBB backing Stannis. The Lannisters couldn't have paid this debt because Tywin says to Cersi in one episode that Casterly Rock's gold mines are dry. Now the Iron bank, isn't getting paid and we don't know if they know Stannis is dead. Isn't it about time they reappear? (I don't think we'll hear from them again)
  5. Especially since they gave Grey Worm his Pinochio scene (look i'm a real person, with feelings, c'mon people grow attached to me! i'm going to die soon)
  6. Queens Justice: So who are the queens of this episode? Safe to say they will contrast the actions of Cersi (who will have someone killed) and Dany (who will not kill Jon for refusing to bend the knee) Then throw in Sansa for a twist (she is in charge of the north so she's kinda a queen. OH maybe a cameo from the nights queen? (I know she's book only at this point but why not?)
  7. In High Valyerian, the noun for cockles is the same as the noun for those who have cocks, so the prophesy could read "The prince or princess with or without a cock, that was promised"
  8. Ships burning all around him, he runs from heroism and jumps into the sea. He finally realizes that he needs to change and is then "reborn" amongst smoke and salt. Theon Greyjoy, the unlikeliest of princes that were promised.
  9. PLEASE NO RAVEN ISSUES! so Sam finds out where dragonglass can be found and says "I gotta send a Raven to Jon" Now in every other instance, Ravens fly and deliver messages without any problem. Why then do I have the feeling that this raven will either "just miss" Jon, or get sidetracked, or the message will be delivered to someone who is anti-snow. I really don't want to see this cheap, time wasting ploy used. please no.
  10. Samwell Tarley, why haven't you lost any weight? I can understand why he arrived at the wall a bit overweight. Family had the means to serve second and third helpings to a book loving, chair sitting son. However, not soon after he arrived at the wall the pounds should've been melting off.Then at the citadel, they make it a point to show the slop food and Sam gagging at the small of chamber pots. What human wouldn't have dropped 20-30 lbs in that time?
  11. Did I miss something? How did Jorah, vanquished by Dany, without money but with greyscale make it on to a ship back to westeros and to the citadel. I didn't think greyscale was so rare the citadel would use resources to house greyscale patients. (is it Grayscale in America lol)
  12. All Stark heads of household MUST be buried in a crypt in winterfell or they will reanimate and try to bring about the long night. That is why so much is made of the crypts and not so much everyone else who dies. The first WW was a Stark. Stark blood runs through their veins. Benjen is still alive and that has something to do with it. The original Nights King was a Stark. Starks are like werewolves and have forgotten their powers.
  13. Is this the place to ask if anyone else is wondering if area left a mark of some kind when they showed Walder's hands fall away from his throat then Arya reaching into his neck.
  14. I think they are done with Dany this episode and there will be scenes in: Kings Landing Arya (may be combined with another scene) The Twins/Freys WW's Winterfell (maybe this will contain a twist) Varys
  15. I gotta believe that Dany won't be traveling to Westeros until halfway through next season at the earliest. She has to shore up politics in Slavers Bay first; who's ruling in her stead? She needs to secure passage to Westeros (She is still short a few ships) She needs to draw up a battle plan (Who in her service knows Westeros? Tyrion & Vasrys, two smart advisors but not going to lead an army.) So she needs to give Grey Worm some geography lessons and have him promote people to lead troops. They haven't developed the Northern threat enough to have Dany come over.
