  1. So it's known that Littlefinger engineered a war to plunge the Seven Kingdoms into chaos so that he could profit financially and power-wise. And everyone knows that the Riverlands becomes a battleground no matter what. I think that Littlefinger bribed Maester Vyman into poisoning Hoster Tully with either Widow's Blood, a poison that causes the bladder and bowels to fail, or the Tears of Lys, which eats at the bowels and belly of the victim; he dies in agony, which will not appear unusual if the victim is old or sickly. Hoster is in his elder years at this point, it's implied that the sickness he has affects his bowels. So in this move, Littlefinger puts the Riverlands into the hands of a boneheaded, impulsive heir, forces House Stark into a conflict of Littlefinger's choosing due to their marriage ties to House Tully, and Littlefinger gets revenge on Hoster Tully for betrothing Catelyn to Brandon Stark, the (admittedly stupid) move that changed Littlefinger's life.
  2. One of the problems with the messages is that they're self-contradicting. On the one hand for Season 8 we think we're supporting Jon as a hero who does not want the throne, yet in Season 1 we had another hero who didn't want the throne and we've seen what happened with him on the throne. His name was Robert Baratheon.
  3. I always wondered why Viserys was never trained to fight; he was the ward of the master-at-arms, he probably needed to defend himself whenever he and Daenerys were turfed out of a home, and he needed to prove his strength to the Dothraki, which he failed... miserably.
  4. Viewed well enough that Drogo's willing to marry Daenerys. 10,000 doesn't seem to be enough to sweep the Seven Kingdoms. Rhaegar had 40,000 men who didn't have to hurl their guts across seawater and they got trounced by a 35,000 strong force.
  5. Well, perhaps the ending was inevitable given the genre, but it was as built up as an anvil on the head. So, why was the ending so rushed? We could have had the same ending but with a few more episodes per season. Is it possible to use the original amount of episodes per season (10) and build up the ending properly?

    Why Daenerys as the Mad Queen?

    I limited myself to direct kills, including controlling a wild animal like a dragon; in the wildfire case those would be Bronn’s kills. Bronn actually stands at 4th in direct kills throughout the show at 246. Daenerys stands at 1st with upwards of 1700, Jon has 442, Arya has 400.
  8. And they weren’t even sneaking around.
  9. There is that school of thought that the more a person is rejected, the more that person is wanted. Mr. Collins from Pride and Prejudice seems to subscribe to that school of thought.
  10. Between her and Obara, Obara seems like the easier fight; judging by what we see, she's the worst of the Sand Snakes in a fight. Why? Obara can only get a stalemate with a one-handed man, fails to get a single kill in the battle on the Black Wind and doesn't put up much of a fight when she goes up against Euron, who turns her into a shish-kebab.

    Why Daenerys as the Mad Queen?

    Well, Tyrion has built up a body count. Right now he stands at five definite kills. A Hill Tribesman: beaten to death with a shield The Baratheon battering ram commander: leg cut off and head sliced open Shae: strangled Tywin Lannister: shot A Son of the Harpy: stabbed in the back The ambiguous kills are a trio of wights seen in the crypts at the end of "The Long Night"; it's possible that Sansa may have shared credit or Arya took them out when she dusted the Night King.
  12. Though sometimes I wonder if the ending like this was inevitable, owing to its genre. Found this on a TV Tropes page for the last episode. The bleakness of this final episode was foreshadowed from the start if you paid attention: Game of Thrones, like the book series it derived from, is a Dark Fantasy series. And what's the definition of Dark Fantasy? In a nutshell; it's fantasy being cast through a lens of cynicism or nihilism. In Dark Fantasy works, moral ambiguity is the order of the day, and endings vary from bittersweet to abstract to just downright depressing. We were never going to get a happy ending with this series. The very genre it belongs to prevents it from happening.
  13. Well I guess they didn't do that much of a job to get the actors not to read the books; Ian McElhinney (Barristan Selmy) read them and was highly disappointed when he was killed in Season 5.
