    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I think you're right. In general, Jon seems to be the character that is going to "time travel" the fastest. He seems like he HAS to be a lot of places really fast. Dany does too but at least you know ... dragons..

    Why do the smallfolk support Cersei?

    Sadly, very true.

    Why do the smallfolk support Cersei?

    A lot of season 7 goes against logic. Around season 5 I had to start turning my brain off and just wait for the OMG/"break the internet moments" and lots of CGI dragons. It's kinda sad. Still enjoy it, just in a different way.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I may be a bit behind. Do we have details about the dragon pit sequence? Or just that they are all meeting again?

    Who will wield Heartsbane in season 8?

    I am down. I will even put a dollar or two into that pool, to make things interesting. You could have a really good pool going for everything we think may/may not happen.

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

    Hahaha I like it!

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

    It's a less obvious red herring then. It's more subtle. Maybe red herring is the wrong word then. Misdirection. I am not sure what to call it then... Obvious hints toward something and then switching it the last minute...whatever that is... I agree that R+L=J isn't obvious but the text leading you to believe that Jon not being Neds was pretty obvious the first read through. Second read through with that in mind becomes pretty obvious the text wants you to believe that it's Lyanna's kid. I never put together the rhaegar thing though, that I had to get from the internet. But I, personally, think the text strongly points you to someone + L =J. Just my opinion though..

    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.
  13. 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..
  14. 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.
