    Foreshadowing is not character development

    The thing that was "there from the beginning"--or at least by the end of season One--was that Dany was ambitious , emotionally distant, assertive, and sometimes cruel. She went on to be those things but moreso, and got a taste for burning her way out of trouble. That's about it. There was the possibility that she would lose control and be crueler than necessary. Or even go crazy, because any character could go crazy I guess. But what does that have to do with bells? I dunno.

    As much as some hate how this season has played out...

    When it was announced we'd have to wait two years for the final season I was a bit apprehensive, but when it's gone it's gone. It's not like waiting for next Sunday to come. If you need your fix, there will be prequel series (I think) and possibly new books if George Martin doesn't die first.

    Possible explanation to "Dany gate"

    If the Western allies were trying to deprive Russia of German territory, they were doing a crap job of it. I might guess they were doing the exact opposite. Dresden wouldn't have made any difference. The Red Juggernaut was coming anyway. As for the terror part, Britain and the U.S. were doing that to German and Japanese cities all along. They didn't even keep it secret.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    One of them got a cruel death. The rest were pretty normal for the show.

    This is all Jon’s fault

    Far as I know, marriage was prohibited in Medieval times up to the fourth degree, which would be first cousins. Aunt/nephew is 3rd degree, worse than 4th. Definitely against the law. It's not clear to me our society looks down upon them more, because back then you had canon law in addition to regular law.

    What do you mean tried to? Twice we've seen them kiss since they both knew. Twice they didn't have sex.

    No reason? How about it's icky. Entirely apart from genetic concerns. But as long as we're on the subject, you share 1/4 of your genes with your aunt/uncle. Which is the same relationship he thought he had with Sansa and Arya. He didn't grow up with Danny, admittedly. But what if he sees Arya's face when he kisses her? Eww. As for not the same as banned, marrying your first cousin is legal in some U.S. states. If I lived in one of them (which I don't, actually), would I be allowed to be grossed out by the idea? "A good guy doesn't sleep with his aunt" isn't a good argument for the books, either, by the way. There's absolutely no reason such little mention has been made of the prospect of marriage, especially before they knew about Jon's mommy and daddy. But it is enough of a reason for Jon not to sleep with her. In the middle of all this. It hasn't even been that long.

    More importantly, Jon is not pressing his claim. But she appears to think the mere idea of his having the right to rule getting out would undermine her. Like the people of Westeros are looking for an excuse to crown him.

    Welcome to war

    The North? What do they have to do with it besides happening to be first in the zombie army's way? She let concern for an undead horde led by Ice Demons walking across the entire continent get in her way.

    Blood Magic

    I assume Varys knew Jon came back from the dead, since he is Varys and Tormund brings it up in front of everyone. Did no one tell him Melisandre did it? The very woman representing the greatest evil imaginable to him, when paired with King Stannis on the throne. Why would Varys support Jon, considering Varys' fear of such magic?

    Prediction for finale

    I think the archery was for her to almost kill Gendry because comedy. Why she was target practicing right next to an entryway inside the castle is anyone's guess.

    Jon will do it. Stupidity for the win over madness!

    The Targaryens had it before Robert sent Stannis there to capture the remaining royal family. I don't see why Danny wouldn't keep it.

    We saw him restraining Northerners. Not all of them, obviously, but I didn't get much of an idea how much control had been loist.
