    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    About fAegon popularity? Illrio made sure he is Aegon V again. He was trained to please the Faith and the poor. The Targaryen name may not help. But considering Cersei alternative... May be wrong, but I feel Bran needs to remain in the cave to fully access what power the Old Gods can give him, to fuse with the weirwoods. And become what he must become. Jaime may travel north and meet Bran there. I would like to see them together. But I believe he has an "appointment" with a given "lady" (two ladies in fact, Stoneheart and Cersei). Maybe LSH will want to kill him before a weirwood. Maybe Bran will manifest himself there and tell her to stop. I believe Bran may also intervene to save Theon from Stannis, So maybe only one will happen as GRRM is not likely to repeat.

    It's obvious form the books. When she'll return, she'll likely find fAegon (the cloth dragon), beloved by the Faith, the pious and the lords desiring the overthrow of Cersei. Daenerys will have for her slave eunuchs, Dothrakis savages, Ironborn reapers, bad repute sellswords,. Probably red priests ready the burn the 7 and their believers. Maybe the news of the plague disaster will also have reached Westeros. Not much for her to enjoy.

    At 37:30 he talks specifically about Yi Ti and its emperors. He doesn't plan to write more stuff about them or Yi Ti in general. But it doesn't imply everything he wrote about the LN there is fake.

    I picked the lines and bolded the words fitting me best. Not my intent to alter the message. You're free to use your own words. I believe it is this one: I don't care about Yi Ti. It is the book that is important. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMvFNaqSWEo

    I know of GRRM inventing places we will never see. With funny names and no history. Like Kayakayanaya, the Shrykes, the Winged Men or whatever. Yi Ti is a step above that IMO. But I'm not referring to the currents emperors. Colloquo Votar's book was given to Jon to read. And this book has references to the Lion of Night, the Others, and the Long Night. BTW, I don't care for spoilers, whatever. They are ways to know things you didn't know. If they are told accurately.

    Found it quite to my liking (sounds they will not be defeated, they are to bring back order) The hammer of the gods Of how we calmed the tides of war We are your overlords So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing

    I don't see the logic of ASoIaF & GOT finishing on a cliffhanger. And then HBO doing a prequel telling what could possibly happen next. Do a sequel then! More so GRRM leaving a lot to tell after ADoS. The prequel scope is already very wide, I'm not sure the Others will have that much room. None of HBO projects are sequel, all returning to the past. Either everyone is dead. Or the world is idealistically at peace. I would rather have the opposite conclusion of yours: The previous LN was imperfectly fixed (hence the long winters). The return of the Others will fix that in more satisfactory way. As is suggested by this quote (an invitation for improving).

    Yes, I admit I'm totally idealistic. This is not reality. We may dream if we dare it. Is GRRM dreaming too? Sure. But what is the problem? I don't feel building a bigger army, or a bigger wall, would solve it. It would mean war and violence are the answers to the problems. Cersei and Ramsay were right. They just needed greater firepower than their opponents. I don't know if the prequel will be more faithful to GRRM's ideas (published or not) than GOT. But I believe the Yi Ti legends explain why the Others came back, and what is needed to see them leaving again and not returning.

    OK, but fleeing to another continent and not solving the problem is to procrastinate. And if you have no other continent to flee again, you have your back against the wall. BTW, what do you think they should do to avoid messing again in Essos?

    I know GRRM said we may establish a parallel between ASoIaF and our climate problem. But more generally: we should not quibble about frivolities when we have bigger problems. All ASoIaF universe is a nightmare of wars and atrocious crimes. I believe this must be addressed. Not solving it would be IMO "unsatisfactory". And it will not be solved by fleeing to another continent. This people fucked something. And unlike us, it was not the climate.

    What will the last scene of game of thrones season 8 contain?

    I believe Jon's death means he will not age. He will guard the realms of men for centuries, maybe millennia to come. Maybe we will have a scene, some 50 years in the future, with Sam and Little Sam, now also an old man, and Jon, still as young as today.

    It's an alternative punishment of death or mutilation. But it's still slavery. It's still the "under threat of death".

    The 1st LN was dealt without losing a continent. If one continent is lost why not the other. The only possibility would be south, Sothoryos. But I don't believe it. They have a problem. Must deal with it. Not flee elsewhere and still have the problem.

    I'm glad you mentioned that. I often said "forced to work until your death" and "sentenced to death if you desert your job" were trademarks of slavery. Same as forcing oaths, otherwise called "bending the knee" under threat of death, forced to honor oaths taken hundreds of years before by your ancestors (aka slaves' children are also slaves).

    Agree with you about Sam and what you just said. My preference would go to Davos. Even if he made some big mistakes following Stannis. But none of them have the sufficient "leadership" or "personality" or "destiny" to protect this bunch of crazy loons.
