    Can we talk about Jon?

    Lack of evidence is kind of the point. Luckily the onus of providing proof of the existence of a thing falls upon the one claiming that thing exists. You never hear about people trekking through the wilderness looking for proof that Bigfoot doesn't exist. At this point, your two vague examples are correlation at best, coincidence at worst. It very well could be a Targaryen trait, or a trait shared by those of valyrian blood. If so, I find it peculiar that, after three hundred plus years of Targaryen rule over Westeros, it's not a trait that is ever mentioned by any Targaryens in any story published so far. I find it more likely that these were traits given to main characters to give them a little shape and individuality within their stories. Maybe we'll find out when Fire & Blood is published.

    I don't think that is some Targ/Valyrian trait, considering the fact that I've had occasion to share a shower with someone who liked the water hotter than I could stand. It was like dunking my sack into boiling water. Then again there was a time when I could pull sizzle plates right out of the oven without burning my hands. So I don't think the tendency of two characters who enjoy taking ridiculously hot baths is an indication of heat resistance for an entire bloodline.

    Valyrians don't have innate heat resistance. The ongoing fire immunity is showDany only.

    Hell, there are places in the US where first cousins can be married. Yes, I sacrificed my browsing history for this information Most places just have issue with lineal relations (grandparents, parents, kids, grandkids), leaving other relations wide open.

    Please stop spreading the mythology that wolves are ravenous and uncontrollable beasts. Ghost's real name is Quigley by the way. Instinct for Film: Wolves Rip your arm off with ease? I don't know about that. Kill you? Sure, but any canine weighing up to 200lbs can do that if it's switch has been flipped.

    De nada. The problem is that with the show on an accelerated pace, if the reforging of Ice is actually a thing... they'll probably have Gendry do it and not even bat an eyelash. It's all cliff's notes now.
  7. So the subject line is actually longer than your actual post. Bravo. Dont get a job naming movies. As for your actual question... it's not like dragon carcasses are just chilling out over there, and Westeros uses tombs. Kind to hard to be a scary undead soldier when you're locked in a stone box.

    Have you considered that consistency in her portrayal is on purpose? People ive known don't completely change from year to year without significant reason. Same walks, same way of speaking, mannerisms and ticks. Complaining that she is consistent is the height of nitpicking.

    Mott (the blacksmith Gendry apprenticed under) did it in the books, but the show established that smiths able to work with valyrian steel are much rarer. Tywin had to ship the guy over from Essos.

    That look on Tyrion's face

    You forgot the fourth option. That the showrunners are purposefully misleading the audience in order to generate discussion but which will ultimately lead to nothing. See also: Arya stabbed theories Arya vs Sansa theories The showrunners were given the corner and edge pieces to a very complex jigsaw puzzle and they're doing their best to fill in the entire picture. Unfortunately the disparity between the quality of storytelling is very noticeable. The only thing we can really do is sit back and try to enjoy the spectacle.

    Jon's female ancestors

    I think you're probably reading too much into it.

    Nah man. You go to her place, you don't make your queen come to you. In all seriousness though, it did play out a little weird.
  13. Yeah, I don't get why he told Sam but not his own sisters?

    The missing Arya-Sansa scene?

    She was asking Sansa "Are you sure you want to handle LF this way?"
