    I agree that's where he belongs; it' show he got there that bugs me.

    [Spoilers] Episode 806 Discussion

    Does it bother anyone that Jon did not say good bye to Davos? Does it bother anyone that Bronn is now a member of the SC, after threatening the lives of Jamie and Tyrion, with there being no making amends be tween he and Tyrion? I mean, the last time we saw Bronn, he had a crossbow pointed at the two of them, and actually fired a warning shot. The next time we see him, all is honkey-dorey w/Tyrion??? Does it bother anyone that Jon was sentenced to the NW? Sorry, but it would have been much better if Tyrion, Bran, Sansa and Arya (maybe) went to Jon and has a convo along the lines of, "well, if we do this it's war, if we do that it's war... we are trying to decide what to do with you?" And then Jon says, "I will go up north, and take up with the Wildlings". This way, he is taking the moral high ground, and he is being the better man - both of which he has been doing for almost the entire 8 seasons. But this way, D&D made him seem like a weak, submissive, broken man. That's not Jon Snow. LOVED seasons 1-7, but this whole season, esp. the last ep. was a BIG letdown.

    Does Jon Snow know Gendry's true ID?

    Oh right - I remember that now. Thanks all!
  4. I am wondering if Jon knows that Gendry is RB's son, or has that reveal not happened yet?

    What smart things has Sansa done?

    She got the KOTV to fight in the BOTB I know that's only one, but...

    Why was Jamie's hair darker? Was this intentionally done, but at the same time a 'read between the lines' sorta thing, now that he has gone his separate way from Cersi? (Even tho one's hair would not darken b/c of that).

    Books v TV series

    Hi For those, like me, who have never read any of the books.... 1. How close to the book(s) is the TV series? Not talking about dialogue, but the story in general. Really close, or did the series deviate a bit? Is it like LOTR, where there is just so much material, a lot had to be left out, or is the series light by only a minimal amount? 2. Were all the books written before the series began? Or was GRRM writing books while the show was on the air? 3. As we haven't seen the ending of the series yet, this might be premature, but does anyone know if it will follow the book? If it does, then some of you know how everything ends, I would imagine?

  11. Just watched S1E01 again. First we see Will and two other members of the Night's Watch go scouting beyond the wall. When those two other members are killed, Will deserts and winds up near Winterfell, before he is beheaded. How did he get there? Wouldn't he had to have gone back to the gate and taken a path that would lead him through the wall to the other side? "Well, that's what he did!" you say. "He went back to his brothers, and THEN deserted". Nope. To Ned, he says, "And I know I’m a deserter. I should have gone back to the Wall and warned them." So, if he is beyond the wall - the same wall that protects WFell, and K.Landing, and everyone else from the W.Walkers and the Wildlings -, and doesn't go back to the wall, how does he wind up near WFell? I am sur he didn't go around the wall. Didn't occur to me the first watching, but it has now. Any explanation for this?
