    Season 8 Predictions?

    It's actually refreshing to see a TV show where a villain manages to make it this far with so much success. Don't worry your precious little mind though. You'll get your boring Disney ending eventually. There is no chance Cersei will survive.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Some predictions, mostly based on how I think D&D will interpret certain elements from the books, not how I want things to play out. - The season will start with some more flashback revelations from time traveller Bran. We will see the moment Benjen disappeared and find out that Bran is responsible for his neither dead nor living state, knowing the important role he would play later on. - A big battle between Daenerys and Cersei will take place after Cersei's treachery is discovered. A gruesome fight between the Hound and the Mountain in which both die will be one of the highlights. - Euron and his fleet will escape the battle, only to fall victim to an aerial attack from Viserion in another location, adding undead pirates to the Night King's army. - In the aftermath of the battle, Jaime will end up choking Cersei to death before she has a chance to go full on Mad Queen. - Daenerys will claim the throne in joint rulership with Aegon (Jon). Aegon will receive Rhaegal the dragon. - Aegon will discover that the Night King cannot be killed with his sword after narrowly surviving a dismounted battle against him. This will lead to Sam conveniently stumbling upon some information about the weapon Lightbringer in a book, as well as the reintroduction of Melisandre. - Davos will convince Arya that Melisandre is wicked and deserves to die. - In an attempt to manipulate the past even further, it will be revealed that Bran is in fact many of the legendary Brandon Starks throughout history. - The Night's King and his army will destroy King's Landing, as per the visions in the House of the Undying. Daenerys will die, perhaps in order to recreate Lightbringer.
  3. Legitimacy and line of succession mean almost nothing in Westeros. Anyone with an army has a claim to the throne through right of conquest (ironic that they named Jon 'Aegon' after one such conqueror). It's therefore laughable that mystical beings such as the 3ER are so fixated on Jon's parentage. I view it as a really contrived and forced way of making Jon even more of a Chosen One character than he already is, while also tapping into the same kind of human drama that makes shows like Jerry Springer so popular.

    The younger, more beautiful queen . . .

    I'm almost certain of two things: 1. The White Walkers will make it far enough south to destroy King's Landing. 2. Daenerys won't survive the final battle against the dead. This means that if she's really the one who's going to overthrow Cersei, it'll happen before the final battle.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    He was obviously brought back to become Jon's new BFF, drawing parallels with Ned and Robert. Besides, who else would have ran back to Eastwatch to send the ravens? Tormund? Nobody is going to buy into that. Huge chains materializing out of thin air? Fine. A slightly heavier guy going to send the ravens? Too much suspension of disbelief.
  6. The decline started far earlier than season 6. Season 3 was an abomination of bad writing and deviations from the books.

    I agree that the story is very much about Jon, which is why I doubt that he will be killed off permanently. GRRM could do it though if he really wanted to. Ok, so Jon is a Targ. That doesn't make him an invincible superhero and the only person (besides Dany) who's capable of defeating the Others and ruling the realm peacefully. And the whole AAR thing could turn out to be nothing more than legend and superstition. Personally, I think ASoIaF would be a hell of a lot better off without going down the cliche "Chosen One" route.

    This isn't Disney. At the start of the series, many would have considered Ned to be the main protagonist and would have rejected the idea of him dying. The story can evolve when a seemingly indispensable character is killed off.
  9. - Emilia Clarke's acting. - In the books, Dany rushes into the arena to save Drogon, not the other way around. The way he appeared to rescue her right as she was about to die seemed kind of cheesy to me. - Emilia Clarke flying off on a CGI dragon looked utterly ridiculous (though in fairness to the producers, i'm not sure it's possible for them to do it in a way that doesn't look stupid).

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Cutting LSH out would make Jon's revival have more of an impact. I always thought that between Beric, Cat, the Mountain, and (assuming it happens) Jon, there was one too many revivals in the books. It sort of cheapens the idea of characters dying.
