    The younger, more beautiful queen . . .

    You may be right. I also can not seem to find many old sources using quick searches at least. I was probably projecting what I had taken for granted for a long time ever since I was familiar with R+L=J.

    It was either Aegon, or in some rare cases, Jaehaerys. Every R+L=J speculation I have seen had one of those two. Those were the closest Targaryen names to "Jon". Ahh yes, Thats true. Well as long as it was not a Targaryen name, it would have sufficed.

    I hope you are joking. That is hardly a twist. All R+L=J theorists speculated his real name is Aegon. "Jon" was a convenient northern-isation, because Ned Stark's "son" could not possibly carry a Targaryen name. She probably wont, not for long anyway. But she will definitely take it away from Cersei. Thats all the prophesy specifies. Dont take it personally. You have become the unwitting figurehead of the great many people making this nonsensical argument about the show "being too obvious"..... after seven seasons of death and destruction with 80% of the characters eliminated.There has to be some main characters left, otherwise there would not be a story.

    Its only "obvious" now because we have known this for decades and overspeculated it to death. Its as "obvious" as R + L = J. In the context of the story, Cersei first thought it was Sansa, then she thought it was Margaery, so it is quite fitting that its actually the young queen she was not bothered about until the last couple of books / seasons. Its what the story has been building up to for years. Forcefully changing the end game just for the sake of a twist because fans have figured it out, is just bad and contrived writing.
  5. There were no on-screen indicators about how long the seven were trapped in the north. They could have been there for days for all we know. Time enough for all those actions to take place. But in general, this episode was too contrived, I agree.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 607?

    I can imagine Game of Thrones fans not being too impressed by this episode. But 9 /10 for me. This was one of the best acted, and best written episodes I have seen in all six seasons, reinforced by the cameos by two great underrated British actors. Blackfish, Kingslayer, the Tyrells, the Ironborn, Ser Bronn of Blackwater, Lord Glover, Septon Meribald (Ray?!), even the little Lady Mormont were flawless.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    This was one of the most haunting / impactful episode for me, similar to The Mountain and the Viper ... even more since I did not know the story this time around. I can still see scenes from the ending if I close my eyes. The past few episodes have reaffirmed my faith in the writing abilities of D&D, without detailed sources from GRRM, after the loss of it due to the Mehsurrection.
