  1. Am I the only one who reads this part of his Notablog and think, holy shit this guy has A LOT more going on. When is he going to write? "And me? I’m still here, and I’m still busy. As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…" 5 TV shows, more non ASoIaF books, short films, and a video game. He couldn't find time to write with 1 TV show and a tour schedule. In case anyone forgot, Dance With Dragons was published 3 months after the FIRST EPISODE of GoT came out. So basically after S1 had aired. 8 Years ago I had hope that he would write at least 1 book before the end of the show, and was optimistic that he would finish both. I was hopeful that Martin would want to finish his Magnum Opus and leave a legacy on history (much like Tywin) but alas its unlikely to happen.

    Why the Night King Didn't Fight Jon

    Just rewatched this episode again. Why is it in every Fantasy/Sci Fi as soon as you kill the big baddie all their minions die to? Such cliche. Why would the NK even put himself at risk? Why does he personally have to kill Bran? WHy cant he just use his undead armies, or maybe send a Wight or even White Walker Lieutenant to kill him. Or have his dragon just dive bomb the Weirwood forest and breath fire and burn that tree and everyone in the gods wood to dust. Is it me or is Arya killing the NK a Deus ex Machina. It was completely out of left field. Jons villian and story is the NK, Arya is meant to take down Cersei. And dont get me started on the tactics. Why would you not have the fire ring lit at the beginning of the battle? WHy are the artillery pieces not inside the walls. WHy not put the UNsullied on the walls with everyone else given a bow and arrow. Have the Dothraki charge in from the flank after they begin the assault on winterfell. Have the dragons join them. You have literally the greatest military minds in all of Westeros (several of them) all in one spot and this is the plan they come up with. Jon fought several battles and experience first hand the effectiveness of shield wall and cav charges. NOt to mention fighting the WW. Jaime, Davos, Tyrion, all veterans of multiple battles. Even if tyrion didn't fight a lot he knows how to plan. Hell even Dany has conquered and won multiple battles/seiges. Grey Worm solider for life. WTF?
  3. Denied: Littlefinger actually lived.

    Loose ends

    We did not actually. There is an interview with GRRM where he says that the return of dragons represents the return of magic to the world.

    Loose ends

    1.) See above. Jon united Dany and the North. 2.) Its magic. Not all is meant to understand. Its a soft magic system where we as the viewer know as much as the characters, we are left to wonder how it all works. 3.) That was his character arc. Im not sure I understand what you mean here. 4.) The return of Dragons Represents the return of Magic. Once they are born the magic returns to the world.
  7. I keep going back to this quote: "Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish: Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is." So it seems like Jon just refused. Dany fell. And the fact the Bran tells this to Littlefinger in S7. If Bran can "fly" its like he doesn't even have to climb the ladder. He just "flies" easily to the top. This represents him easily being elected as King at the end without every having actually played the Game Of Thrones. Am I reaching here? Thoughts?
  8. Yes i am referring to GRRM
  9. The Dragon Pit Council. @46:19 to 46:Left to right Sam Tarley - Reach (Davos states the lords who rule it are gone) ? Edmure Tully - Riverrun Arya Bran Sansa Brienne (Kingsguard and/or Davos Gendry- Storms End ?? ?? (Westerlands) Osha/Yara (Iron isles) ?? Dorne @ 50:35 Robin of the Vale ?? - not sure on the guys name but I recognize him form other episdoes ( think he is northern alliance) ??- same as above So Ok, maybe you are right. There are a fair amount of new people. But they killed everyone else so someone is in charge of these lands now. new sons/lords etc.. Yeah i have no idea where all the Unsullied and Dothraki came from. That was shit planning on D&D part. It looked like 95% of the DOthraki died in the charge at the Long Night and at least half the unsullied as well. Jon's bloodline is indeed not mentioned, but several people already know the truth. Tyrions, Starks, Sam, and you could argue the rest of them, as Varsarys sent ravens before being killed. Nevertheless, everyone there (as mention above at least) knew Jon didn't want the crown. The gave him a free out by sending him to a non exitent Nights Watch so that he could be free of responsibility to titles, names and blood. Jon basically finally accepted the oath of being a Member of the NW in full like he should have when he first took the oath. It just so happens there all dead and he became a wildling, probably to be Mance 2.0 Not to mention they would still have to prove it to everyone in Westeros aside from Sam and the STarks, no one would likely believe he is Aegon. he doesnt look like a Targaryean, and the proof is "magic" and a book which only about 1% of the population can read. Its better for everyone to let Jon go. They mention at the Dragon Pit meeting Jon was in jail several weeks after killing Dany. Religion is a big deal, but they probably didn't want to develop a new character for septon. Maybe the septon is at another city or town which is the new Great Sept and they didn't invite him. After all you got the Lord of LIght, the Old Gods, and the Drowned Gods, only like 1/3 of the people at the meeting actually follow the 7. To be fair Drogon is a Wyvern, which is something that has irked me since season 5 but I digress lol. Its probably just an animation thing. You have green screen claws picking up a real body in a delicate fashion, its going to look off. Most times bird talons are piercing their prey, I doubt drogon wanted to hurt Danys body even though she was dead.

    *SPOILERS* Jon useless information

    @btfu806 agree. They should have done the Kings Landing Battle first. Arya kills Cersei, Dany takes the iron throne. The remaining forces then march north (with some lannister forces) unsullied, dothraki and meet up with the Northmen at winterfell. Then they fight the Night King. Jon kills the Night king, both dragons die. Dany dies from night king. Now Dany is has acheived her goal by taking the iron throne, and also broken the chians (figuratively) of the White Walker army enslaving all the living in Westeros. Jon is the Azor Ahai, he becomes King, TYrion hand, Sansa in the north. Arya does her thing. Sam is Maester.
  11. D&D are good Film Makers. They are awful writers. There is a difference.

    What Happened to the writing?

    Yup. But those shows had the writers strike to blame. ABout the only episode since S5 that has had GRRM style writing to it with a twist that makes since from a character development is when Cersei blows up the Great Sept with the wild fire. That was a shock, but made since, as we knew wildifre was in Kings Landing and we Knew she was out for vengeance against the High Septon and Tyrells. It made since.
  13. A lot of sentiment I have found is that the actual wrapping up and ending of the arcs is good, its just the journey of S8 and HOW we got there that sucks. Most of the stories arcs did end nicely, I did 7/10
  14. I think Jon accepted the exile to the Nights Watch because he WANTED it. He didn't want the throne, he killed the woman he "love" no matter how poorly it was developed. He feels at home in the north. Everyone knows there is no more nights watch and by going there he knows he will find Tormund. Jon wants to be a wildling, where bloodrights and names mean nothing. He wants to be a bastard at this point where all he has to worry about is just living.
  15. Yeah, both those shows had great writing. The key with GRRM writing is subverting your expectations as a reader. He plays on the common fantrasy/story tropes on what you should expect, but then the twist happens and it feels REAL b/c in hindsight you see all the clues. It as though you figure it out just as the characters do or perhaps right before, when its too late. It is masterfully done and its very obvious D&D are filmmakers and not story writers. They definitely invented Skyrim Fast Travel lol. For better or worse, it did help speed some things up which needed it, but agreed, you can tell it was more of a shock moment on a lot of deaths.
