    Dany is army-less, isn't she?

    It seems unlikely that the Golden Company are going to be a reliable resource. My guess is the Iron Bank is betting on the side with Dragons.

    Dothraki and Unsullied

    If they had to beat the dead on the field, the best was to use them would likely have been sweep through aster dragon passes to clean out survivors,

    Dany's contribution to the Great War

    Yes, and the US Marines/Navy should have stayed in San Diego, because all that was needed to defeat Japan was 2 B29's and 2 Big Bombs.

    E03 Questions

    The Dothraki weapons were lit, so they could show a scene from above of them charging in the dark. It didn't work because the advantage the Dothraki have over most everyone is that that scare the living hell out of them by charging, and that is irrelevant here. Outnumbered 20 to one by the dead, they were predictably overwhelmed.

    Death scene: Jorah Mormont

    I thing it was meant to evoke the feeling of a loyal pet sensing its owner was suffering.

    Discussing Sansa XXXVI: Long Night

    As Bran said, all that we have been through makes us who we are.

    There HAS to be some kind of unexpected twist/turn

    The Dwarf. I really wonder if there will be a ruler of the 7 kingdoms in the end though

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    My one complaint from a suspense point of view is that once we got past the point where the NT raised the dead on the field, the only way anyone could survive is if the plan worked. We didn't know how he would be defeated, but there was no lose the day but regroup, because everyone would be gone.

    Death scene: Melisandre

    I sort of expected her to say one last Prayer, and have all the dead erupt in flame. Perhaps followed by her removing the charm, falling down and burning.

    So what does Jon Snow do now??

    Martin has created a situation that is narratively difficult to resolve. A massive existential threat to the world, that has to be resolved but a plot built around who will rule, which seems pretty inconsequential after defeating death itself. Making that seem important is the key to the rest of the Story. In ROTK Tolkien did a great job of doing this, while showing how much the key characters had grown, but he had written the Shire as an idyllic place to start, and restoring that seems important. This is a shit world, in their words, so simply restoring it to what it was wont be good enough. I'm interested to see where it goes.

    What will be the final WTF moment?

    Seeing King Tyrion and Queen Sansa send Jon to be King in the North, with his son Eddard Targaryan after his wife dies giving birth.

    The show is called Game of Thrones, its about the Game of Thrones.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    Exactly how I feel, there are really only a couple maybe 3 of large picture questions in the show, how will the NK be defeated, who will rule Westros (or how will it be ruled) and how will the wheel be broken. My expectations to answer each of them is huge.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    I gave it a 7, because it feels like too soon to kill the NK, but in truth, its only too soon if the next episodes do not work. Not know what is coming, I am more than willing to give it a chance.

    He'll show up with Nimeria's pack to save someone in Ep 5

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    Agreed, and I take that into account when thinking about these episodes. Martin seems to have written himself into a corner he can't seem to get out of, Hard for me to be too judgmental of writers tasked with doing that task. They do need a major twist to end this though.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    All I am really saying is that its not certain that the same charterer will do the same things in the books. Frankly I would be willing to bet that for some details Martin will write it differently just so its different, if he ever write an ending.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    The know the dead are defeated, probably by killing their leader, but who kills him was probably not done by Martin. They were told which side won not much more.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    It feels too early to kill the night king to me, but in truth, after season 5, I expected it to end season 7 and the whole last season be about the fight for the throne, The next twist will need to be a good one for the show to end without these final episodes seeming insignificant. Martin will have the same issue at the end (should he ever actually get there) in that from a strategic point of view they have to defeat the dead first, but after facing that, its hard to worry about who sits in what chair.

    Name of the battle?

    That sounds like Episode 5

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Not at all, but I do want to see it finished. I hope deeply that Martin is up to that task, but its looking like its very possible that he is not. These guys don't get to wait 10 or 20 years to go forward, and I give them credit for what they do, rather than try to compare it to something I hope someone else does.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Given its looking like it will take 10 years for George to publish another chapter to this story, and that he may never finish it, its hard for me to condemn these 2 for what they have done in it.

    And are there not several Thousand of them for every WW?

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 802?

    I gave it 8, and might have made it 9 had I waited to vote after watched again. The show is about characters, and this episode advanced characters.

    Theory: Bran Told Tyrion About Jon

    I agree with that, and I am not convinced that Bran's Motivations are all positive, It feels like there is some manipulation happening.
