    Season 8 Predictions?

    Yeah, but this time it is different. This time it was a guy from 4chan, who by now has admitted that he has made all just up. Last season it was a worker on a hotel who had the possibility to see the outline in the hotel room of the producers, at least that is what the leaker had claimed.

    Dragon eggs

    They were "dead" eggs. Eggs turned to stone, who were layed once by dragons. Daenerys woke them to life again.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I was just trying to explain that GRRM might be wrong, not that he is. As far, the book series is not over, so we have to wait. But if the consensus differs from his opinion at the end, then he indeed has failed if he has approached something different. I myself am still not quite sure what the inner message of the book is. I need the resolution to judge by myself.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Well, he may say that, but a book is literature and as such, its message will be allways interpreted by the readers, not by the author. If a majority of the readers interpret a different message then the author, then the author was not able to deliver the message right. One "Job" of art, is to provoke a certain emotion to the public. If the resulting emotion varies strictly from the intended emotion, then the artist has failed to deliver. Calling the audience or the readers "moronic" speaks for him and not for them.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    If the story of PtwP is the same as AA, to me that is a very nihilistic world view. The "hero" must kill his loved ones to please a Fire God so he can give him a sword to fight darkness. Sacrifice of other innocent people is the price that has to be paid to save the world.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I think Winterfell will fall at the beginning of the season after a fantastic battle at the gates of Winterfell. Possible deaths during the battle: Greyworm, Arya, Danny. The series will end with a conclusive battle in Kings Landing against the Others. Deaths: Varys, Melissandre, Cersey, Jamie, Euron, the Mountain, the Hound, Theon. King at the End: Aegon VI Targaryen. Hand: Davos. Ruler of the north: Sansa Stark, Lands of Winterfell. Ruler of the Westerlands: Tyrion Lannister, Lord of Casterly Rock. Ruler of the East/Stormlands: Gendry Baratheon, Lord of Storms End. Ruler of the Reach: Samwell Tarly, Lord of Highgarden. Ruler of the Iron Islands: Yara Greyjoy. No Idea what will happen to Dorne or the Eyre. I guess it will never be mentioned again.

    Cogman Developing 5th Prequel Series

    But you can not compare a minor series like "Gomorrah" with an HBO show, especially a "Giant" like GoT or his sequel. The number of audience, the budget and the expectations for both shows could not be more different. HBO puts millions of dollars in the sequel of GoT and wants to reach just as many viewers as GoT did, otherwise they would have an economical and reputational desaster with many people loosing their jobs, including some of the CEO's. This is why some indipendent movies dare to risk and go different paths regarding the story, while Blockbusters can't. At the end of the day, what matters is the average viewer and the number of viewers. Keep in mind, that most viewers won't apreciate a show with only antagonists and no heroes or good guys. GoT had a lot of bad guys, and sure the audience loved them also. But it were the heroes, with whom the audience cheered for, like all the Starks, Danny and Tyrion, to name a few. And theese where all main characters. If you want to compare an american TV show with "Gomorrah", a better pick would be "The Sopranos", also a huge success. But Sopranos was a success, because of the history of the US, the imigration history and problems with minorities within the US. It is part of america, and therefore it finds his audience. But a fantasy show, in a fantasy world, with only grey and evil characters? It might only work for the hardcore fantasy fan, which will not be enough to top the break-even point. I don't think that HBO will risk this. That being said, I don't think that DOTD is out of table. They will just make it work for TV, by changing and adding more to the characters and making them more compelling for the audience. And I already see some guys here, bashing the showrunners, the writers and HBO for changing the plot .

    Season 8 Predictions?

    The series is called "Game of Thrones" for a very good reason (besides that the title is catchy). It was never really about the White Walkers. They are, at least in the TV series, the danger of winter, but not the antagonist of the show. Since the very first Episode Ceresey is established as the antagonist of the series. This story will end with her defeat and the establishment of a new non Lannister dynasty.

    Jon will get wightified, a theory by Lothar Frey

    This is the stupidest post I have ever read, since I signed up here. This may sound rude, and I apologize hereby, but I am just being honest. Disliking Jon is one thing, but calling him evil? Absolute ridiculous.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    The death of Jon Snow needed to happen, for several reasons: 1. Him leaving the Nights Watch. 2. To parallel the Azor Ahai Prophecy. I know, it is not clear if Jon is Azor Ahai. It could also be Danny or someone else. But in the end, it helps the author to make the prophecy to fit with more then one character. This way, the prophecy stays vague and the readers can argue even years after the final book is released (oh the irony) who Azor Ahai is. 3. As GRRM said in July, to parallel the Ice and Fire metaphor. Again, not the only one, but still one of them. Ice Whights vs. Fire Whights. By this Statement by the way, GRRM clearly stated which force will bring him back. Not Bran, nor Bloodraven, but the magic of R'hllor. The obvious character to bring hin back to life is Melissandre. Also Alan Taylor, the Director of this weeks Episode, told to the Media that GRRM has already told the Director in 2010 (and the show runners of course) that the whole point of the story is Jon and Danny coming together. Again a metaphor for Ice and Fire. I know, the people who don't like this idea of these two characters coming together won't be happy and in denial, but that is what is going to happen. It does not have to end well for the two of them, of course. And I certainly have no idea how a Fire Whight, in whos veins does not run blood (according to GRRM), will ever be able to get a boner, but GRRM will find a way. As for the show, I do not think that they are going that way with his body and ressurection. In the show he is basically still the same Jon.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Unfortunately nothing of the things you listed. First, it is a fake-hisory book ala World of Ice and Fire. Second, as I understood this GRRM post, the book beginns with the Conquest.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    When I first heared that GRRM is gonna write a Targaryen fake history book years ago, I thought and hoped that it will also include their family story in Old Valyria and that it will show us the Valyrian Empire and society. How they learned to tame dragons, how their magic worked, what brought the Doom. That would have been very interesting, since there are huge myths to be revealed to us. The Targaryen story beginning with Aegon, is for me personaly pretty...meh...Most of it is already in TwoIaF. Sure he will flesh their story out, adding a lot of additive informations. But personally I don't care about it. It will be nothing really new, in the sense of giving the reader a sort of new story. But as I said, only my opinion. I am sure there are others who would like those stories. Crazy Idea though (and off-topic): Since he wants to release it earlier than we have thought or he has planned, Dance or the Conquest may be the chosen Prequels by HBO. I think we can all agree, that he does not want to be in the same situation he was with GoT, where TV tells his story before he can.

    Jon will get wightified, a theory by Lothar Frey

    Last week I was banned for one week because I put the second answer of George here (without the part about Jon) and one Moderator said I was spoiling show stuff here (which I wasn't). And now it is OK to discuss his whole interview here? That seems fair
