    I guess I didn't make myself clear either. There is a HUGE advantage for the Stark girls in LF knowing Arya is faceless, but not knowing they know he knows..... It will entice him to come up with his brilliant master plan of seducing Arya to kill Sansa and wear Sansa's face to run the North the way Arya thinks it should be run. Only problem is, they planted the idea in LF's mind the same way he plants ideas in the minds of others.....therefore, he's dying by the sword by which he has lived.

    I posted this elsewhere..... If LF thinks that Arya has a keen mistrust of Sansa to support Jon, and LF understands that Arya has the wherewithal to take Sansa's likeness after killing her, giving her the avenue both to kill Sansa without repercussion and the power to run WF the way she thinks it should be run in support of Jon, and LF sees that Brienne has been sent away so that Arya could attack Sansa without Brienne to defend her, then In LF's logic, he needs only seduce Arya with the idea of killing her sister for the sake of a better realm. In this sense, there is an enormous advantage in knowing Arya is faceless, because it gives him the opening to ply his treachery.

    What she was doing in silence in that conversation was counter to the words she was speaking. And, wasting time so they can kill him in the finale. His death has to be poetic justice because of the weght of his character in teh beginning of the story. There is no more poetic justice than two girls (he's a pimp), one of them his perennial pigeon, bests him at his own game.
  5. While a deus ex machina is named after the ancient representation of gods in plays, it doesn not require a god be involved to be called that. Tolkiens eagles were classic deus ex machina, they are not gods. In fact, few uses of the plot device in modern times employ an actual deity.
  6. Season 7. Season 2 dragons never seemed to get anywhere with any speed anyway.

    If he had 10% of the pyrophobia he originally had, he might have just dropped of heart failure right then and there when dracarys......I don't know if the show-writers intended it, but it does seem to me like he is getting more comfortable (not comfortable, but more comfortable), around fire.

    His fear of fire, while still there, seems to have been exerting less control lately, I'd say once he forced himself to read the fire. He didn't appear to be going spastic over the polar bear inferno or the flaming swords. He was comfortable around fire in such a pronounced way during Eastwatch that I took note of it while watching. It would be cool if Ser Robert Strong tried to wield fire against him to intimidate him and it backfired, scuse the pun, with Strong getting set ablaze with a torch he threw at the Hound. If Cleganebowl every happens, which I don't believe is the case.

    I think Cleganebowl is completely a fan construct and will never happen. Sandor isn't the Sandor he used to be, and Gregor SURE ain't Gregor. The only way they could make a Cleganebowl reconcile with the changes the Hound went through is to have the Mountain go after someone and the hound jump to their defense. "I don't think, 'you burned my face, prepare to die!" is in order.

    Yep, the only hope Edd could have is to be standing next to Jon.

    This I see as the climax of the season. Eastwatch was a (silly) means to that end.

    Bran is the Night King

    I've seen them wear similar costumes (while Bran was in vision), but I haven't found anything about a pendant.

    This is the part of your post where we come to full agreement. I think you are underestimating the girls, just as LF is.
