  1. I disagree with this last part. Maybe early in S7, sure. But not now. It's one thing to lay siege to and conquer a city - but then what? You would have to leave forces behind to rebuild, govern, defend. They clearly need ALL of their forces up North. Simply laying waste to KL and then leaving to go North would leave the city in chaos. And committing any time to KL puts them behind because even a quick victory (how long would that take? A few days at best?) allows the NK and his army to gain ground on them. Agree this was bungled, but not in the finale, but rather from the start of the season. Their plan of dragging their feet put them into position in the first place.
  2. She clearly reneged on both. Not only is she not sending her forces up North (well, remains to be seen if Jamie can rustle up a few men willing to join him), but she also stated she is awaiting the GC to take back parts of the kingdom she has lost. That doesn't sound like any truce or cease fire. While they may not go up and attack the North directly, they are clearly taking an aggressive position.

    That look on Tyrion's face

    Agree with this. Either way, pretty heavy foreshadowing. Probably won't end well for some combination of all three involved in that scene.
  4. I realize it was ridiculous to begin with, having to capture a wight and all, etc. But wouldn't a "temporary armistice" have been a better term? Assuming they were/are able to defeat the WW, what was the plan after? To resume the war for the throne again? The way they kept talking about it, they made it seem like a long-term truce...which makes no sense.

    Good point. Saw an IGN video where they stated that the S8 scripts are indeed done..but that none of the actors have seen it.

    These are my fears as well.
  7. What was LF trying to say at the end? "I...." "I love you" ?

    I read through the desinerd "leaks," and I truly hope they are fake. But the way S7 ended, a lot of it seems like it will line up. And they are pretty detailed, if they are fake, somebody spent a LOT of time on it.

    Did GOT just become WOW: Wrath of the Lich King

    Breath of Sindragosa on that wall.
  10. Are they fake though? Now that we have seen the S7 finale, it seems to line up quite well. ie, Euron leaving to bring the GC, Cersei betraying everybody, etc.
  11. At first when they had that scene with somebody spying on Jon walking into Dany's bedroom, I thought for sure it would be a jealous Jorah. But why is Tyrion there? And why does he look so upset/confused? Does he think Jon and Dany's romance is going to cloud their judgement?

    Jon's poor battle record

    Hard to argue against some of the scenarios he has put himself in....but I never took him as some sort of great general or strategist. Yes, he is a good swordsman, but his best attribute is his ability to rally/unite others. That, and he always tries to do the right thing. I think the show has tried to highlight this in contrast to other "great" commanders (ie, Stannis) who may have been excellent tacticians but were generally assholes to everybody.
  14. Cersei doesn't need to do anything rash. The calculating move would be to play along and then recruit the GC and smash Danys forces when they're spread thin next season fighting the WW. That's why this entire plan is so stupid. It was suggested because everyone was worried that Cersei would swoop in and attack them if they focused their efforts collectively on the WW. Well....that's probably still exactly what's going to happen after the meeting.

    It's probably not just some ordinary ice spear, but imbued with whatever dark magic the Night King has at his disposal. At least that's how I took it.
