  1. And the NK and wights having to wait till the hound throws a stone to know that the lake has frozen over again. The KING of ICE, the one that brings the cold!

    Do you think the show is better or worse for not including Young Griff?

    True, I agree. And she also blew up their liege lord in the process. But I guess in the show, giving Tarly an extra dose of xenophobia was enough to justify his decisions somehow, no matter how contradictory since he served Dany's father. All this while completely ignoring his previously established bigotry and sexism when it comes to Cersei. Because the plot demanded it

    Beyond the wall implications?...?..!

    Jon and Beric died and got resurrected south of the Wall. I doubt crossing north of the wall will somehow keep them trapped beyond the Wall. I think the magic applies to the ones affected by the WW.

    Didn't watch yet. But about the last part. That would be way more interesting than fanfic land version indeed, and I hope it happens.

    Ok, I understand now. But if Jon and Dany hook up and join forces, it's a win win for Varys and no need to jump ship. Unless you mean the dance of dragons will be between Jon and Dany and not in a good way.

    So who will be the final villain? The Night King or Cersei?

    I was hoping it would be Littlefinger or Varys. But not a chance anymore. I think it's gonna be Cersei, Euron and then finally the NK.

    Bran is the Night King

    But the dude turned into a White Walker by the CotF has dark blond features and doesn't look anything like Bran. On the other hand we don't know if that man is the (current) NK. Or do you mean Bran warged into him? :/ Maybe Jon Snow is the John Connor of Asoiaf, Bran is Skynet and the NK is the Terminator. In reverse.

    Yes you may, she is! Can you elaborate on the hidden part? In a hidden way of course

    Bran is the Night King

    Well I always had the feeling that Asoiaf is going to turn out to be more sci-fi than fantasy.

    Not worse for the show overall but definitely for some characters. The character Aegon himself is not absolutely necessary to the overall plot on his own, but -like some already stated above- his absence leads to some character's storylines being inconsistent or maybe even obsolete (Cersei/ Varys). The moment it is stated in the books that baby Aegon's head was bashed into a unrecognizable pulp, GRRM left an opening there for a twist, for him to 'return'. So I don't think it was a complete asspull by GRRM to introduce him late in the game. I mean, talking about the show, the introduction of Euron was as much or even more of an asspull than Aegon's could have possibly been. I think for Aegon/Griff to have worked in the show, they would have had to introduce him in season 5 but not as a red herring, before Jon's parentage reveal, which in turn would then probably be a bit later in the show. I don't think it would have been a terrible thing for the show to have: -an established Targaryen protagonist (Dany) -a Targaryen pretender (Griff, in this case the audience must be aware of this or be able to puzzle this one out fairly quickly somehow, the character himself not so much) -a hidden Targaryen (Jon, built up by subtle clues to the point of reveal) This will of course eliminate the possibility of any more hidden Targaryens, which in the current show seems to be case anyways at this point. That all being said, there are other factors in play that can't be ignored. This is why I think it was almost inevitable that he was omitted, and that it was ultimately for the better choice overall. The real problem lies with the fact that all the storylines must more or less move at a similar pace in order to not lose momentum. The stretching of the seasons necessary for Aegon to work simply doesn't match with the whole Night King's storyline. They can't keep stalling the WW for much longer, let's say a season or two more and let them wait until the political squabbles are over. That would be anticlimactic.

    Is there something that you really don't want to see happen in the series?

    -Stannis still alive. (Love Stannis, but in this context he's gone...) - Mel learning how to revive Jon in 1 episode (altough ice cells can be a bit too obvious) -Davos dying Mance style for real at the hand of some Manderly replacement/composite/Ramsey. -Sansa being course corrected to book story and and rapidly dismmissing the Bolton vacation trip without some serious degree of logical follow up. -Frankenmountain wearing that red scarf for no purpose. - Cersei surviving the season -More than one character revived at this point. -Ramsey being smarter and better than everybody, always. - More White Walkers being obliterated by one touch of Kryptonite.
