  1. The Wildings arrived on foot and were camped outside the walls. LF had an alliance with the Boltons. Why would Ramsay worry about him? So Stannis is just as stupid then. Or maybe it's just poorly done. Jaime walked into Riverrun with 8000 men unchallenged. That shows the Frey's incompetence.
  2. How can they see them when they're hiding behind walls? Littlefingers has more gold. Scouts? Maybe they were caught. Maybe they didn't have any. Why is this such a problem but Stannis not seeing Tywin at the Blackwater is "great writing"?
  3. You missed when Roose called him out on his stupid games and when he let Sansa and Theon slip out. He's not THAT smart and he's been shown to be reckless. He could do his thing because no one is paying attention, until then. Littlefinger is similar, save for the recklessness. Scouts get caught. Remember S2? The Knights of the Vale are on horse so they can stand back far away. Ramsay provoked Jon to the north and had them outside his walls. He's not expecting the Vale. Even if he knew, LF gave Sansa to Ramsay. There's little reason to be threatened by them.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    It's just too broad a question. Yeah, Dorne sucked and the Sandsnakes actresses were terrible. D&D know it and they redeemed themselves with one line: "let the grown women speak". At least they got the cruellest death.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I read some critics that went into details and many have facts wrong or interpret things different than others. They often compare to the earlier seasons but fail to see the flaws in those, partly because they also read the more detailed books. Some critiques just do it because it makes them feel smart when in fact, they can't follow the story without GRRM's hand guiding them. The shows has some flaws but it's still excellent.

    Daenerys is the Prince that was promised?

    If you mean Stannis', that's just someone taking the prophecy literally. A dragon is more likely. It goes like this: Hey Euron, can I get some help? No. Sword breaks in water. Hey Cersei, can we get some help? No. Sword breaks in lion. Jon stabs Dany with his "sword", gets a dragon (burning sword)

    Daenerys is the Prince that was promised?

    I don't think we'll ever have a clear answer, but then I believe Azor Ahai is a composite character. You're right about doing things that can be interpreted as fulfilling the prophecies. IMO, the sword tempering in water and the lion has already happened at the dragon pit meeting when they ask for Euron's and Cersei's help. You might even say Nissa's stabbing happened on the boat. :-)

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Those who think GOT has turned into a soap opera should watch S1 again. I started with some S5 episodes and then went back to the beginning and hard a hard time getting into it because of the soap-opera undertones. Friends never made it past S1 because of this. Characters are overly dramatic, especially Catelyn. It's all about their little families.

    Daenerys is the Prince that was promised?

    GRRM uses clich├ęs but he wraps them with ten layers of boiled leather. Look at Tyrion, a bearded, axe-wielding dwarf living in a mine. Jon is like Aragorn, the ranger who reluctantly turned king. Bran, the little boy who must defeat a Great Evil. I tend to believe the character in the legend is a composite formed over time and Jon is just the prince and leader part. I doubt there will be a burning sword and Jon might not even fight the NK himself.

    In the beginning, Bran doesn't control his visions of the past and present either. He needs to see better, as he said himself. We don't how he pinpoints past events so it may be a lot more difficult to see the future.

    What do you mean by "not a vision or dream"? Visions is how he sees the past. The only difference is he can choose what to see in the past, but not in the future.

    Bran sees future events in the show. You might say he saw Jon's death in the books as well. Jojen's dreams are visions of the future so if he can, why not someone more powerful?

    What will the last scene of game of thrones season 8 contain?

    Sam writing or reading the book is most likely IMO, then credits, then the camera creeps towards the throne to reveal Ser Pounce.

    What is your theory on The Others?

    The walls have spell built-in. The same spells prevent WW and wights from entering the cave. The wall holds those spells and the NW maintain the wall.
