    What ASOIAF theory blew your mind?

    I always liked the Euron/Daario theory. When I first head it, I thought it was stupid. Then after hearing the arguments, it could be legit.

    Cersei versus Daenerys

    To me they are two of the most evil characters in the show. So I hope neither of them, for the sake of westeros.

    The Queen of Ashes foreshadowing

    Well put together post. I always thought Dany was/is going to be the anti-hero of the story. Then with recent seasons, you could see her becoming slightly more mad. It's the path, to me, that makes the most sense for her. I guess now it's just how/why she burns down KL. Good post though.

    R+L=J vs N+A=J (GRRM looses either way)

    This is part of the problem (well our problem really) with books taking a long time to come out. You start thinking of your ideas, you discuss them, they become more and more real to the point that you believe you have it right, and no one else does. When it becomes your idea and basically a part of you for 8 or 20 or w/e amount of years, it gets tough when it turns out you are wrong. With that being said, I still think it's with Wylla. I think R+L=J (or any variant) is just a red haring. I always thought that somebody+L=J was pretty obvious to the reader, that GRRM really wanted us to think Lyanna was Jon's actual mother. So I always thought it was too obvious and thought that Ned was telling the truth the whole time, making it a bit interesting to me at least. But I am sure I am wrong also, since R+L=J seems to have a lot of backing and the proof for it is pretty good. I just feel like I can't turn my back on Wylla now, on the very off chance I happen to be right, haha. So I don't think I will be angry when I find out I am wrong, just kinda disappointed? I guess?

    Danys the good guy?

    Dany is a character I generally disliked in the books and couldn't stand in the show. But to me she has been one of the main antagonist (villain seems too strong) of the books. Mostly everything she does is through her version of what justice is, or what she believes is right from her own personal agenda/ideas. I can't stand in the show (and I am not sure if they do it in the books, I can't remember now) how other characters have to continuously justify why she is a good person to the viewer (and maybe reader). If you have to do that, she isn't a good person then.
  6. I disagree with your definition of a plot hole then, I wouldn't say it is only a direct contradiction. Using Wikipedia's definition (I know it's not the best but...) Plot hole is a gap or inconsistency in a story line that goes against the flow of logic established by the story's plot. Plot holes can be contradictions obviously, but they are not limited to them. Several of the things that you say are not plot holes would be in that case. So understanding your definition of plot hole, I get why you would say the things you did. edit: formatting issues in my post..
  7. Maybe you're right that plot hole isn't the right term, but not explained well enough, or leaving your head scratching could be terms that work. Anytime you have to use the phrase, "they may have" it's you just guessing at the plot, or possible explanation for something that doesn't make sense. That could be done for every poor choice the show made. Though, to be fair, I do agree with some of your points about not being plot holes.
  8. In the show's world. Yes. It would.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    That does make sense. It's just hard for me to see Stannis change so fast from loving his daughter to burning her. I mean, it's possible. It's just hard for me to believe right now. Maybe I am in denial... I agree 100%, unfortunately I don't think that will happen. Or just have Jon live in his Wolf forever and one of the other Starks taking it in or something. I would be fine with that. I don't really care for undead Cat and I hope she serves a very special purpose. But I hate the whole, bringing someone back from the dead, that fantasy books like to do. What is dead, should stay dead.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    I think we see the end of Stannis soon. I don't see how his character can move on really. I wouldn't be surprised if he looses to Ramsey and he is basically done for. Then leaving the way for Jon to be KiTN and have a battle of the bastards like thing. If Stannis wins, then he has to eventually move out of the way for Jon and I don't see how you write that without doing a whole new battle and taking up a lot of time. I think Mel's vision of the grey girl on the dying horse is Shireen showing that Stannis is going down soon, which is sad. Also, I know that GRRM told D&D about burning Shireen but I don't see it happening in the books. I can see her getting burned by someone else, not Stannis. You can all call me an idiot if/when it happens in TWOW. But as far as Jon, I agree with Lord to fat to sit a horse above me. Jon goes north and teams up with some wildlings eventually coming at Ramsey from north, the true north. I still consider the wildlings more of his people then anyone in Westeros. (Also why I believe the Jon and Dany relationship will never happen in the books, among a slew of other reasons.)

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    That definitely makes sense. I just remember Beric saying he loses a piece of himself each time, so maybe a part of Jon is lost? Like emotion for something or w/e. But that definitely makes sense.
  12. I just picture it like chess. You get good at chess by predicting what your opponent will do and basically playing the game several steps ahead of what's actually happening. Now, just like chess, you will miss something causing you to eventually lose (unless the other person misses something first). So when he says that, I don't think he can literally see every possibility, but you try to. Like chess.
  13. Ahhhhhh that makes a lot more sense....

    How do you think the series will end?

    I don't know why, but if Jon dies again, I think it will piss me off. You already killed him once, brought him back (in away I wasn't a fan of but w/e, that's on me) then just having him die off again to kill off the main antagonist. IDK. Though I can't see Dany's character being that person either. So by default maybe it does have to be Jon. Just pisses me off, not a fan of the idea (though who knows, might actually work when they put it on screen...)
  15. I don't know if they would all be plot holes or just lazy writing... Such as what would Brianne do when she gets Arya, bring her back to King's Landing? I guess it's a plot hole, but to me it is just lazy writing, especially after you mash two plots together. Also, I am surprised there isn't much from Season 6 now, when I look through the list. I remember watching it thinking there were a ton... or at least inconsistencies. Maybe that's why they are not listed. I get wanting to make things simplistic, though I wish they never did but then again, maybe the show wouldn't be as successful as it is without some simplicity. But the contradictions and inconsistencies in the show, that's what has really killed it for me these last couple of seasons.
