    did you look up the spoilers for this season? No spoilers inside

    I did and I am glad, because I really needed to be prepared. The ones I have seen have been accurate so far, and I assume they will be for the last episode.

    Who's left to marry Sansa

    Man, I hope she doesn't end up with Gendry. That would be such a shitty ending, for both of them. Of course, since D&D seem hell bent on giving us the shittiest ending possible, they probably will end up together. I'd prefer her to stay single. I don't think she'd ever really trust any man enough to want to be married.

    Dany Marries Gendry?

    No. Gendry + Arya, or nothing.
  4. Really? Jon specifically tells Dany, when she told him why she couldn't have children, that that person that old her was not being truthful. She really emphasizes that the dragons are the only children she will ever have, something that she wasn't really bringing up to a lot of people previously (only that the dragons are her children). Then of course, Jorah mentions Longclaw going to Jon's children. I honestly always pictured Jon dying while winning the Long Night, and then Dany dying in childbirth to their baby. Neither gets the family the always wanted, but at the same time they have a family legacy to leave behind. That's the sort of bittersweet ending I felt would have been fitting for both characters.

    [Beware- SPOILERS] Regarding Jon Snow

    Did anyone notice that Jon's not rocking the man ban anymore in those pictures? I feel like that's significant. When he put his hair up like that, it was like he was mimicking Ned. Taking them down....like Targaryen men wear their hair?

    Gendry (potential spoilers)

    No.

    Dorne??

    Littlefinger might have been bs-ing about how much food was stored up, especially since the main reason for the Lannister alliance with the Martells was to get the Reach's agricultural resources. And then, of course, Dany seems to have burnt a bunch of food bound the KL.

    The Last of the Disappointments?

    Yeah, they aren't the creatives this sort of story needed, but they are definitely lazy about the writing. I think the only thing holding the series together a this point are the actors, who do a great job with what they have.

    Dorne??

    I don't know. Both lost so many adult men, in a society that needs men for the physical labors required. The Reach and Westerlands also recently lost a bunch of soldiers. Plus a bunch of people probably died in the Winter from starvation. It's not like the WofFK was followed by a season good for growth. When Cersei called the Lords, yes some came, but it seemed like a pretty small number, considering. Westeros has to be a mess at this point.

    The Last of the Disappointments?

    That's true, but I think a lot of that was word of mouth, especially with so many of the shocking events that occurred early on. The show combined two of the biggest cinematic draws - sex and violence, and to a huge extant. That's all that's enough for a lot of people, sadly. I'm with that with such a detailed background, just putting a little time and thought into it all would make the show soooo much better. D&D just chose not, because they don't need to. It's not what attracts a large segment of the audience.

    Dorne??

    I honestly think the rest of the realm is so mutilated at the moment that there really isn't anyone to give lordships to. So many houses have been destroyed in the war, or brought so low that they are just hanging on.

    Dorne??

    It seemed to me that in show the Martel family tree was slimmed down to Oberyn, Doran, Trystane and the Sand Snakes. That's why Ellaria was able to take over with the Sand Snakes in the first place - no one to challenge her rule.

    Why Dany didn't ask for other houses support?

    I thought she had, and she wasn't getting any responses. Didn't she have a bunch of ravens sent out in season 7?

    The Last of the Disappointments?

    Benioff said Dany forgot about the Iron Fleet. So, it's not even just that she didn't see it. She forgot about it. She forgot about the Iron Fleet......how? That's the kind of crap they come up with.

    The Last of the Disappointments?

    Which...I don't understand why they'd do this, other than they think all their fans are idiots or don't care. Though, perhaps, most don't care, to be honest. The casual viewer does not give a shit about the sort of stuff that drives some of us to forums like this one. D&D, and by extension a lot of those in charge of many on-screen fantasy and sci-fi series, are really going for as broad a veiwer ship as possible. That means they will dumb it down and go for shock value. I think what's frustrating to those of us that are more interested in the details, is that we can probably figure something out that's smarter while also giving some shock. I mean, I know I could have plotted this season and last season better, without even using fan service. I know because I've been thinking about the possibilities for an ending for years now. I imagine most people on this forum are similar.
