  1. The problem was not with her turn, or even with the speed at which it happened. The problem was that it was insufficiently justified by the plot. Had it happened when Rhaegal fell, perhaps with Jon on his back, thinking she had lost both, maybe as he did something stupid to avoid hurting civilians, it would make sense. Then when after rather than realizing it was a mistake, she realized that was her true self.
  2. Tricky to have a hereditary succession when a vow of Celibacy is required for the position.
  3. If the elected "King" is elected for life, and has effective control of who will be voting on his replacement......
  4. I believe this is pure Martin, and is almost the core theme of the Story. He wants us to feel bad that we supported the things the hero was doing, because of who it was being done to. He wants to show that people who do these things to people they hate, do not stop doing them when all the people they hate are gone, they just find new people to hate.

    Loose ends

    Exactly, saying Jon played no role in beating the dead, is like saying Eisenhauer, Patton, Zhukov, Montgomery played no role in beating the Germans because none of them were the one who killed Hitler.

    Jaime "escaped imprisonment and rode south" ??

    I believe it was a not very subtle commentary reminding to think about who wrote something, when we read it to find out what has happened.

    The purpose of R+L=J?

    Yes, for now, until they disagree on something...

    [Spoilers] Rant & Rave without Repercussion, Final edition

    The more I think about it, the less I blame the writing (although they made serious mistakes) and the more I blame the utter absence of any chemistry between Jon and Danny. Without that we had to accept their brains migrated below their wasted, without seeing any real evidence of it between them.

    Destiny of Jon Snow

    Clearly, and to protect them from what ever they may find
  10. And her sins were the greatest.

    Dany CAN (And Shall???) Rise Again!!!

    It will depend on what level of control Martin has on this property, and how he intends to exert it. What happens next to Arya, Jon and a resurrected Danny are all stories someone would pitch, and might get produced, if the contractual situation allows it.

    Use one word to describe the series finale.

    The purpose of R+L=J?

    It was to make Jon into someone Danny could never allow to live in the long run. Someone she would inevitably see as a threat that would need to be removed.

    Who was Daenerys turned into?

    I don't see any commentary on either. More about the inevitable outcome of war being used to settle conflicts.
