    No one really cares about KL massacre

    Even if the remaining main characters and great lords don't care about the human cost, the trading center of Westeros and one of the great economic centers of the world was wiped out in about 40 minutes time. That's worse than a normal city sacking. They'd care deeply about the economic ramifications for sure.
  2. I want to pop in here to go back to some comments made a few hours ago about Emilia not being very sharp and not understanding her character. I urge everyone to read her interview with The New Yorker: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-new-yorker-interview/daenerys-tells-all-game-of-thrones-finale-emilia-clarke-beyonce where she discusses her craft fairly in depth. She tells us that she did know Daenerys's arc, roughly, from the beginning (it was described to her as being comparable to that of Lawrence of Arabia) but that she chose to focus on the moment when getting into character.

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    With all the buildup involving the Iron Bank, that is entirely possible IMO. And there's also what GRRM referred to as the Chekov's gun of Nymeria and her ever-growing packs of rampaging wolves in the Riverlands. Arya is developing her skinchanging skills in Braavos, and she I think that Arya will have a very important role to play in the endgame. It just won't be parkouring out of a tree to slay some "Night King". It'll be better.

    The aftermatch of the decision made by D&D

    I agree with you here. I've always wondered why, exactly, GRRM withdrew totally from any participation in the show. Recently he's made a comment or two, hinting that he'd have preferred that the series go on for a year or two longer, but I'd think the showrunners would have needed some support from him as far as the story for that to happen. He was needed very badly, as it was.

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    Maybe the dragon understood the real reason she had to die.
  6. Perhaps in the end, whoever winds up being king (or queen) is able to enact reforms that unbind women from their chains in that society--at least some. Yeah, I know, that's weak. But I still don't think that GRRM's central message is that the powerful women are monsters. I don't think the central message can be gleaned until we get the other two books, or as much as we can. Right now we're in the middle of the action. Arienne looks more like possible royal fodder to me. She'll surely marry fAegon.
  7. I agree. They're also the strong possibility that they simply decided not to explore those deeper implications because of a lack of time. The world in which this story takes place is strongly patriarchal and brutal for women. The arcs for all of these characters are difficult, but maybe it isn't a coincidence. It's almost as if it's leading to a resolution beyond eventual revenge porn.

    Doesn't mean that Drogon was going to kill Jon. Drogon seemed to "take to" Jon from the beginning. I think that we are supposed to believe that Drogon was intelligent enough to pick up on the fact that the point chair was the object that his mistress had been lusting after all this time, and that he directed his rage and grief in that direction instead of at Jon. He's a dragon. He sees the bigger picture. And as someone else said, it's symbolic.

    Destiny of Jon Snow

    He left with the wildlings. There was a good omen as they rode north: a sprig of green poking up out of the snow.

    The cast's reaction to the script

    Emilia Clarke in The New Yorker:

    So what was this long story all about?

    I think they still reproduce farther north. There is a fight scene in the books with Brienne in a ruined building with what is described as young weirwood growing through it.

    Can't a weirwood be planted in the godswood for him?
  13. Great work. I wonder if it might not get a better reception in the book section.
  14. They never did beyond the 3ER being the repository of all the world's history.
