  1. Who is the official King/Queen at the beginning of season 8 ? Dany thinks the is, so think Jon, Yara, Theon, the unsullied and the Dothrakis, Varys and Tyrion. Cersei also thinks she is, with support of the Lannisters troops mainly. We don't know the Faiths position (is there a Faith anymore?). Dany hasn't been crowned, and Cersei had been by her hand. Then Jon's lineage is revealed, that makes him a third claimer even if he doesn't want to, the situation changes. There are 3 claimers, and no rightful King/Queen : Jon has the best lineage, Dany has the strongest army and Cersei sit on the IT. So choosing one of the claimer isn't treason to the others for me. The only traitor is Varys who attempt to kill Dany.
  2. As the show never told us how bad it turned to those who tried that in the past, it's more like an open ending, as for Jon's. The writers had no idea of what their characters will become, so they let us imagine what we want for them.
  3. There is some difference between Freys an KLs slaughters. Arya gathered not all the Freys, but only those she thought had a part in RW (they all cheered when she reminded them that moment). And she didn't poison women and children. Of course there are probably some innocents who died then, but not so many. If Dany had burnt the red keep only after the bells rang, it could be compared. But she decided before that to burn alive people she knew were innocent (children had no part in Missandei death)
  4. Considering how season 8 ended, I don't think that there is enough left to begin a new season right after that. With a time jump it could be, let's say when Bran died. Westeros would be completly instable, new threats could rise elsewhere (someone controlling Drogon east, NKII North, Westofwestoris who didn't appreciate being disturbed by Arya... ). Then new strong characters could be available everywhere, with no inconsistent history : good dornish princes and/or princesses for example... Flashbacks would make the links between old and new generations, but no more than that. for me current characters stories have ended.
  5. I guess the previous 3ER lived long because he was half-tree/half-man. Bran isn't. Sansa's justification for independance was weak indeed, she could just have said : Torrhen bent the knee 300 years ago because of dragons, last one is gone, so we go back to previous state.
  6. Because when Bran dies, next king woudn't probably be a Stark, but North would remain independant no matter what.
  7. With Tywin she spoke of Visenya, but I doubt she is so found of dragons now. Sailing west is a good option for me, not the sweetest one because of the probability of nether going back home, I would have prefer her travelling in the known world.
  8. 9 for me, a good finale for this show. My only problem is that if i had to rate the entire season, it will be far less than each individual episode. (except 4th which i didn't like). It was too rushed, so important twists like Dany "madness" and Jaime's arc were not explained enough. (at all ?). Introduicing the unknown people who choosed the new king would have been cool too. Last i feel sad for shippers, because Sam and Gilly apart, all surviving characters are alone when the story ends.
  9. So, Jon knows nothing, and now he does nothing. And if you are friend with a Stark kid and he or she thanks you, you're about to die. Mad queen happened, i'm not really surprised, 2 or 3 more episodes would have been better to make that more believable. The only thing that's really bother me so far is the conclusion of Jaime's arc. I don't buy it.
  10. 4 for me, I liked the 3 first episodes, but not this one. + : The beginning (specially the Starks pin for Theon), Sandor's scenes with the sisters, fiercest "Dracarys" ever by Missandei, Lord Gendry - : Too many teleportations once again, dragons unable to fly high enough to spot an ennemy fleet, Cersei not wiping the small Dany troop at the end, no one wondering how a young women was able to kill the NK, Jaime leaving (whatever he really wants ro do), Bronn scene; lack of subtility showing Dany is changing.
  11. Who will use Heartsbane in the fight against WW ? Sam will certainly not, and it would be a waste to leave the only 2-handed valyrian sword (Longclaw, Oathkeeper are bastard swords) in its sheath. Jorah could be the best choice, or maybe Sandor. Anyone else ?
