    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Bran was featured in the #Forthethrone posters and promos. Not the Relive the Journeys character pages. Only the five I mentioned earlier got one dedicated to them. Jaime & Sansa have had no #Forthethrone promo features. It's worth watching this series recap released by HBO soon after S7 wrapped. The characters featured once again are the original main 5 plus the endgame villains Cersei and the NK.

    How much did Bran/Catelyn/Ned/Hodor care about the Throne when they were highlighted in the #FortheThrone marketing along with the already mentioned 5?

    It also looks like HBO is done with the 'Relive the Journey' animations. Nov 14 - Tyrion Nov 21 - Arya Nov 28 - Cersei Dec 5 - Dany Dec 12 - Jon These are the only ones they highlighted?! In preparation for S8... interesting.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Right now it's Arya Stark's name that is holding the North/Winterfell. Meanwhile, Sansa is in the Vale, being manipulated by LF, planning tourneys and assisting in the poisoning of a child. When Arya returns to Westeros: He told her that she must be Arya, or else the wolves might send them back. “They trained you in a brothel,” he reminded her, whispering in her ear so the others would not hear. “Jeyne is the next thing to a whore, you must go on being Arya.” He meant no hurt to her. It was for her own good, and his. She has to remember her name. (exactly what the real Arya needs to do in Braavos) When the tip of her nose turned black from frostbite, and the one of the riders from the Night’s Watch told her she might lose a piece of it, Jeyne had wept over that as well. “No one will care what Arya looks like, so long as she is heir to Winterfell,” he assured her. “A hundred men will want to marry her. A thousand.” - Theon, TWoW Arya's political influence in Westeros is setup and ready for her to return. Not to mention, her mother is in the Riverlands looking to crown Arya if she were ever found. Between Jon and Arya, who both have more story/chapters than Sansa... how are you just discarding them again? Especially when George has referred to Sansa as Arya's foil.

    Heresy 215 - Hammering Out the Timeline

    Jon was actuslly thinking of Arya as he looked at Alys abd saw the frosty crown. The fact that ys is another phantom Arya should connect more dots. But the fact that George inserts Arya into this scene should defintely raise some red flags of foreshadowing. As this seems to occur several times with these phantom Aryas. Willow in the Riverlands (who Brienne thinks is Arya) is described as acting like a Queen.

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Maisie's next film project was recently announced: Set in second world war era Malta directed by Rebecca Cremona and it is called "The Gut". Rebecca was at the press night for Maisie's play that Kit and Richard attended last month. The film is build as an "Historical Drama" with the following synopsis: Nina, a runaway girl struggles to survive in the infamous backstreets of Malta's capital, as Allied forces amass to defend the island fortress against Hitler and Mussolini's troops. Bobby, a cabaret drag performer takes her under his wing, but they clash when both fall in love with the same daredevil pilot. Although details on the upcoming film are scarce, it seems like Williams is not the only high profile artist who will be starring in the production which will film on-location in Italy and Malta.

    Newly released Look Back at Arya's Journey For the Throne (shared on GoT's official Twitter account) http://www.makinggameofthrones.com/production-diary/arya-stark-for-the-throne-character-journey The theme song they chose (instead of the Stark or Needle theme) was The Children. Recall, in Tyrion's journey recap, The Rains of Castamere is currently playing. The High Valyrian snatches of words in "The Children" theme with phrases like "little sister" or Daria, Demalion means "The Queen, The Throne".

    TWoW - Arya Stark

    It might be worth checking out the discussion here: Looks like GRRM wrote her Braavos chapters way back in 2012 and has sent them to a map-maker who used Winds content to create the newest Braavos map with several new unnamed buildings and the added garden/green isle at the Sealord's Palace. I think in her Winds chapters for Braavos, Arya will be on another apprenticeship that will bring her into the elite of Braavosi society. Perhaps as a handmaid to a courtesan. If that does happen in Winds, I would imagine GRRM has already foreshadowed it in this AFFC Arya Chapter: "You believe this is the only place for you." It was as if he'd heard her thoughts. "You are wrong in that. You would find softer service in the household of some merchant. (Cat of the Canals living with Brusco) Or would you sooner be a courtesan, and have songs sung of your beauty? Speak the word, and we will send you to the Black Pearl or the Daughter of the Dusk. (Winds of Winter content) You will sleep on rose petals and wear silken skirts that rustle when you walk, and great lords will beggar themselves for your maiden's blood. Or if it is marriage and children you desire, tell me, and we shall find a husband for you. Some honest apprentice boy, a rich old man, a seafarer, whatever you desire."

    Sean Bean Predicts which Stark will last to the end of Season 8: He is promoting the new Hitman 2 so it's nice to get some new interviews from him that touch on Game of Thrones as well.

    That's not the only encounter Arya has with the dragon skulls. Why not post both passages?
