    Jon's Small Council and Kingsguard

    I believe "content" doesn't catch the principal emotions. He somehow lost his human identy as Bran Stark and was forced to carry the burden of the three-eyed raven. Maybe we will learn what this three-eyed raven actually is (made by the Children of the Forst? To counter-balance the Nightking?). Bran is not really a Stark anymore. She certainly is NOT no one. Have you watched the same show?! She clearly isn't: 'I'm Arya Stark of Winterfell and I'm going home.'

    How do you know? Any real evidence or just you thought? Yes, the Hound or Tormund could wield Heartsbane.

    The Child of Jon Snow & Daenerys

    OK, so where is the magic? I somehow agree that a stupid TV series might make it that way. But it is stupid nonetheless. I hope they don't do it.

    Heartsbane

    How so? Each sword is unique. Melting and reforging does not bring back old entities. Well, yes, maybe he reforges Heartsbane into two swords and works any other Valyrian steel?

    The Child of Jon Snow & Daenerys

    If both survive, after the end game, a pregnancy or a child can display the new hope and future. Till then, they can have more than enough sex to make it reasonable. But a child before or during the war makes no sense at all.

    Ice is gone. There are two new swords. Melting and forging a new sword will not bring Ice back. Ned is dead. Nothing will bring him back as well. There is no indication whatsoever that Brienne will surrender Oathkeeper or Jamie surrender Widows Wail. And Jorah and Jon even talked about Jon keeping Longclaw. No, that is too much phantasy for me and has no point to the story line anyway. There are so many loose ends to tie up, the swords are the least important of all. Valyrian they must be, though.

    The Child of Jon Snow & Daenerys

    They had sex once so far. Why should she become pregnant immediately? She is considered to be barren anyway. Can she really have children again? Why now and not earlier? Any magic occured? I don't see Daenerys becoming pregnant immediately and the time line issue doesn't work out, too. The grand war is imminent, the enemy days, weeks away. No time for "boatbaby". Other women in GoT have sex without becoming pregnant. Quite realistically. For example, Sansa. The main question is if Daenerys survives. If both survive, they might have a child after all, after the war. If Dany dies, no child as well.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    Well, GRRM stands fully behind the prophecies and GRRM and DD promised the book end and show end will be compatible, even if the path leading to the end might deviate to a certain degree. I believe they will do so. Even if the lasst books will never be published, I still believe that all important prophecies will play out. Daenerys' prophecies (visions in the House of the Undying) will at least, because they have been in the show, The PTWP does not play an important role in the show, so maybe they shortcut this somehow. By the way, I sincerely believe, GRRM intentionally did not publish the last books before end of the show. It's a wise move economically, and a great move tension-wise for all watchers.

    The Child of Jon Snow & Daenerys

    Yeah, so many theories of this kind. I still prefer the theory that Jon himself is the PTWP. I don't really see the time line for Daenerys having a child... the grand wear is imminent, the enemy is marching towards winterfell. This is about days, maximum weeks, not nine months... Sacrificing a newborn is more than bittersweet. I don't think so. Maybe Daenerys has to sacrifice herself? Or they just have to sacrifice the existence of the Iron throne?
  10. Yeah, that would be the best solution. Watching whatever agreement and also the reason to create the NK, maybe even the three-eyed raven. Hopefully, they tie up the loose ends. Hm, might be. Very difficult to predict what this PTWP is all about. We agree. I see not possibility to write a final end of the "Game of Thrones" without the Iron throne be gone.

    Ah, I see. No, I don't think this will happen.
  12. So many people are deliberating Jon, Daenerys, Cersei and so on (i.e. the Iron throne focus), but with regards to the final end most intriguing is the story line of Bran Stark (i.e. the Night King focus). What is the quintessence of the Bran/three-eyed raven story? I believe this is the core of the whole "Song of Ice and Fire". Jojen knows that he will die and not return from his travel North and that all that matters is Bran reaching the three-eyed raven. Even Leaf, the very old and leading Child of the Forest, sacrifices herself and her people for Bran to live. Why? What makes Bran so important? What will he do that is essential to the world? ISSUE 1 -- Creation of the Night King by the Children of the Forest Scene A: Leaf, the leading Child of the forest, pushing a dragon glass arrow into the heart of a First Man, who is bound to a hearttee, presumably on the Isle of Faces. The scene is shown quite silently and we can very clearly hear wood splintering and breaking while she pushes the dragon glass, not the expected sound of cutting flesh. The magic of creating the Night King somehow involves the tree itself. We shortly see the hearttree from top, showing the spiral symbol. Scene B: Greenseeing-Bran is touched by the Night King, who then knows were Bran is. There must be a magical connection between Bran and the Night King, because otherwise greenseeing-Bran is invisible and untouchable by the real past people. I believe this shows clearly a very special connection between Bran and the Night King. But what is the connection? Maybe the Children of the Forest realized they created a too-strong entity with the Night King and created the three-eyed raven as counter-part? Maybe both together are two sides of the same medal or at least can quench each other? Maybe Bran and the Night King have to reach the same hearttree of the creation ceremony? Old three-eyed raven to Bran: "They died so you can find what you have lost." "You will never walk again but you will fly." (scene showing a dragon's eye) So is Bran supposed to enter the fight as Dragon warg or rider? Maybe Bran has to sacrifice himself to annihilate the Night King? Bran's melancholy at the end of season 7 could point to the fact that Bran know he will have to die? ISSUE 2 -- Symbolism We are repeatedly shown two symbols: The many-armed spiral and the split circle (circle with line from top to bottom). The very first scenes (S1-01) of Game of Thrones show the snowy forest with the slaughtered men arranged in a split circle. Later we see the White Walkers arranging victims in spirals. Jon and Daenerys see both symbols carved by the Children of the Forest, directly above each other, in the dragon glass cave. The creation of the Night King shows the spirals around the hearttree. Sansa wears sometimes a necklace with the split circle symbol. The Targaryen sigil at least resembles shomehow a spiral. So what are these two symbols supposed to mean? First Men (circle) and Children of the Forest (spirals)? Or Ice (circle) and Fire (spirals)? ISSUE 3 -- Jojen Reed and his family Jojen is a Greenseer, an ability otherwise mostly restricted to the Children of the Forest and Bran himself. Why has Jojen this ability? Why did he know about Bran's importance and made it his duty? Are the Reeds somehow interbred with Children of the Forest? Carry a secret knowledge for several generations? Or know about their magic? Jojen once demonstrates his magically flaming hand. Why does he have magical abilities? Meera Reed does not appear to have special abilities, though. THE END Of course there will be a grand battle, maybe more than one. But I sincerely hope the producers will tie up the loose ends of the Bran story line, the three-eyed raven, the Night King, the Children of the Forest. The show did not focus on the Azor Ahai story line so far. I wonder whether they will make it pivotal or somehow ignore it. My guess: (1) Bran is essential to bring the Night King down. Both will die. (2) The Iron Throne will be destroyed.

    Why on earth? Why should they change swords? What's your logic behind it? Surely, Brienne will keep Oathkeeper and Jamie will keep Widows Wail. Two of our important combatants have a Valyrian steel sword they are used to and experienced with. Further, the two sibling swords are now carried by two who respect each other and have feelings for each other. Jamie gave Brienne this important sword. The only change that may occur is Jaimie realising he is no good with a sword anymore and gives his to someone else, but I don't really expect that. John was allowed to keep Longclaw and will do so. It is his sword now. Whether Heartsbane goes to The Hound or Gendry is actually able to reforge it into two swords, we will see. Both is possible. Arya has the Valyrian steel dagger. Many other will wield Dragon glass instead. They showed us they made thousands of weapon heads of it.
  14. Back to the title question: Apart from the obvious pivotal question, whether the Iron throne will be destroyed or who will sit on the Iron throne at the end, the most important background questions for me are (1) Who is the Night Kind and what is all this about? There need to be a good explanation, why the Night King exists and what he wants. (2) What is all this three-eyed raven about? Why does such a person exists and why only one? How was Brans destiny to be the three-eyed raven determined?

    What is the role of Gendry?

    He has royal blood nonetheless. I don't see any problems here, bastard or trueborn does not matter for magic relying on blood. Blood and official status are entirely different things. Cersei wanted to have Gendry killed when they killed all of Robert's bastards. This is not consistent with Gendry being Cerseis son. At least the book prophecies wil be reliable.
