    Season 8 Official Trailer Released

    Interesting things I noticed: - It looks as though Jaime is fighting with his right hand - Arya is running through the Red Keep, mirroring S1 (the crypts don't have windows) - In the battle sequence, it sounds as though Jaime is shouting "run", but he is actually shouting "Bronn" - There is definitely a smattering of paws among the hooves

    Season 8 Official Trailer Released

    I'm pretty sure Jaime is fighting with his right hand...
  3. It's no secret that D&D can, at times, leave a lot to be desired. There isn't a lot of time left, so some loose ends are bound to remain untied. What plots do you think will never get resolved? Which characters do you think we will never see again, and without any real explanation? I have a few predictions: Dorne won't ever be mentioned again, not even when it comes to deciding if or how to divide up the Seven Kingdoms We won't see Daario Naharis again We probably won't see Jaqen H'gar again, unless he comes to collect the debt owed by Arya for stealing from the Many-Faced God, and that is how she dies. However, I don't think that will be her way out, so it's unlikely we will see him again. Or Bravos We won't see Meera Reed again, which would be a disservice to her character and sacrifice. I was never much of a fan of her character, but the way they wrote her out was disappointing We won't ever truly find out who was behind the Sons of the Harpy Any more?

    The third twist

    Oh, good!

    The third twist

    I could see it happening, but only if he felt as though he had no other choice. I can imagine Jon would be jarred by her ruthlessness and sometimes homicidal tendencies, so I don’t think it’s completely unlikely. The dynamic is going to be so interesting when we finally get Jon, Dany and Sam (and Jorah, too) in a room together and they learn what she did to the Tarly’s.* *Unless Sam is all LOL no biggie I hated them anyway

    The third twist

    I hope you're right! If not WW related, maybe it is something to do with Daenerys' final betrayal. That too comes in threes. I'm just throwing ideas everywhere now.

    The third twist

    I think if it hadn't have been so heavily rumoured and instead come as a momentous shock to everyone, it would've been a fantastic suckerpunch of a reveal. Has it been confirmed that the last reveal is yet to come? If not, I'd guess that it was R + L = J.
  8. He influenced Hodor and he also wasn't born. Or, rather, he will if we ever get the books. It was probably a combination of things: the Targaryen registry for madness, Duskendale, the pressure of ruling a Kingdom, and I like the idea of Pycelle and the maesters.
  9. That's an incredibly reductive reading of the three characters, they are far more multidimensional. Their motivations are very different. One's reasons aren't the other person's reasons, to badly paraphrase Ser Davos.
  10. I read S7 Sansa as hardening rather than mellowing. And while I wouldn't go as far as to say that Sansa is driven by power, now she has had a taste of it, she certainly seems to like it; whether consciously or subconsciously is hard to say. Sansa enjoys the power that comes with being the Lady of Winterfell -- she was absolutely adamant that Jon not travel to Dragonstone to meet with Daenerys until Jon handed control of the North to her.

    Ah, you're right, I do remember it was heavily presumed to be the slave masters. It's been a while, but I think it's in the books that it's still unknown.

    Characters we will never see again

    Yeah, I agree with that. It's true that not every plot needs to be tied with a neat bow on top. In direct contradiction with my original post (don't mind me, I am forever changing my mind about everything), I don't think Jaqen's story is told after all. This means we probably will see him again; Arya has promised Death more faces than she can deliver. It would undermine that whole plot and the premise of the Many-Faced God if that was simply forgotten. I guess I just never liked the Bravos storyline so it was wishful thinking on my part that it would simply all go away. And, poor Meera. She deserved better.

    I think you might be right. In what context do you think we'll see him? To collect the debt? I can't see him getting involved in the cause.

    The third twist

    Could the third reveal have been Jon's parentage? I hope not. I do hope it's something WW related. I could get on board with Bran = NK but only if it makes sense.
  16. Depends on the person. Robert was not a good king, but I think Stannis Baratheon would be great on the Iron Throne (but only without the Red Woman!)

    What is the role of Gendry?

    You don't have to be a "romantic girl" to want or have love. Grey Worm doesn't strike anybody as a "romantic man", but he still found love. If it's going to be anybody it probably would be Gendry.

    Who will wield Heartsbane in season 8?

    There is absolutely no way Jon would continue to call himself KITN if he wasn't. Besides, the northerners would think he was an absolute joke. My money is on Jorah.

    Your heart's desire last words of GOT?

    Either, "The pack survives." or "Valar Morghulis"
  20. How was he ever to know that he would have been beheaded? He didn't sacrifice his honour to save his daughter's, it was his honour that got him killed. He was a man of honour who took Joffrey at his word; he trusted that Joffrey would allow him to take the black and live out the rest of his days on the Wall. He believed a man's word is his honour, and it got him killed.
  21. Sam will be the maester for the NW or, if there is no more NW, will be Grand Maester. If there ends up being neither a Night's Watch or a monarchy, he will return to the Reach. Dorne will never be mentioned again.

    Tyrion the peeping tom

    I don't think it was a jealousy thing. At least I hope it wasn't. Isn't it a bit tired to have every man who comes into her service fall madly in love with her? Are we really going to have Jorah, Daario, Jon and Tyrion all besotted with the Dragon Queen? It's as though everybody wants everybody to end up a secret Targ and everybody wants everybody to be in love with Daenerys. Like others have said, I think we're being misled to believe Tyrion has struck some nefarious bargain with Cersei and will betray Daenerys. It would be beyond stupid to promise Cersei that her child will take the Iron Throne after Daenerys - how could he know for sure that she would never carry a child of her own? It's a big risk and one that could start another war. That look wasn't born from that; Tyrion wouldn't ever have struck a deal like that if he thought there was even a possibility that she could get pregnant. And it isn't as though he thinks she's never going to have sex again. Is he going to lurk behind the door of every man she has sex with? I think the most obvious answer is that he's concerned about her better judgement and, despite himself, is feeling a little bit threatened. He is a man who enjoys power and enjoys the game (it's the reason he didn't sail across the Narrow Sea and start a new life with Shae), he doesn't want to slip down the ranks.

    Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

    Also, I have a totally unrelated question. Does anybody know what the font for the forum header is?

    Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

    You could be right; perhaps I am overstating. I just thought the parallel between Robert and his warhammer and Gendry and his hammer would have been more significant. Honestly, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the hammer reappeared next season without explanation.
  25. I know we have a thread discussing how we do NOT want things to go, but how do you think the series will end? Zombie apocalypse? Bran the Night King? Targ dynasty? Sansa and the Hound living happily ever after? Bronn saying how it is all cocks in the end?
