    We didn’t see the Night King at he end of E02

    Well there's definitely a dragon in the e3 preview, but I'm not 100% certain which.

    Seems like a bad plan to me (spoilers)

    Yeah, this makes sense - otherwise why would the NK need to kill and conquer in order to build the AOTD at all? The grounds going to be full of centuries-old skeletons, all he would need do is just raise them where they lie. But yet he doesn't, so it's reasonable to suppose that he can't.

    Episode 2 preview

    "When I was a child my brother would tell me bedtime stories about the man who killed our father, and all the things we would do to that man..." To me this sounds like a summing-up rather than a beginning; I'd lay odds that it's followed by "but my brother was an idiot", or words to that effect. She's already described him as "cruel, stupid and weak" in a prior episode, so it seems obvious that a story about him is going to be along similar lines.

    Thoughts on the Dragons eating

    This was particularly weak. The dragons aren't eating and they don't like the cold, so let's go on a jolly joyride to where it's still cold and there is still no food. OK, so there may be follow up in a future episode, but the immediate response seems to not be what anybody would do.

    The importance of edd

    Edd is the quintessential Everyman who doesn't have a hugely important part to play, but nonetheless is caught up in events and is there for us to relate to. He's pissed-off and loving every minute of it. Hopefully he lasts to the end.

    Ooooh, that's good. Yes, I'd consider that a strong contender.

    e2 - don't know, or possibly "The Lion and the Dragon" referring to Jaime and Dany. e3 - "The War for the Dawn" - all rumours indicate that this is going to be the big one. e4 - don't know, or possibly "A Time for Wolves". e5 - possibly "The Lion and the Dragon" referring to Cersei and Dany. Shit gets real in KL. e6 - "A Dream of Spring". There will probably be torches and pitchforks if this doesn't happen.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Jon is toast. He's not going to survive. He was resurrected by the Lord of Light to fight in the Second War for the Dawn, and when that's done, he'll be done too.

    What will Dany do with the Dothraki?

    I think she's not going to survive, but that aside, and assuming the Dothraki survive too (I could easily see them being wiped out in one of the Big Two this season), this is probably one of those questions that will be left unresolved at the end. I don't think it necessarily needs to be resolved, to be honest. A lot of the time the worldbuilding is left incomplete, and if GRRM is taking inspiration from JRRT for his ending, where some things were also left unresolved, this would be perfectly OK to do.

    [Spoilers] E801 Discussion

    Yeah, this is actually something that goes back to Season 1 and has been seen at various points throughout subsequent Seasons as well - the Northern lords have always consistently shown a preference for squabbling amongst themselves over coming together in the face of a common enemy. Even when united behind DAKINGINDANORF we still have examples of loose cannons like Lord Rickard Karstark.

    It's interesting that you say that. What do you think a realistic portrayal of women would be?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    There's also something else. The show isn't over yet. There may well be something else behind it all that we just haven't been told yet. If you go into it with the expectation of being told everything upfront, and the intent of attacking anything you're not told upfront as a "plot hole", "bad/lazy writing" or "stupid", well, that's just a pity. Of course, if it does turn out to be pointless in the end, then by all means let rip.

    Episode titles

    Possible but I still favour "The Lion and the Dragon". Put it this way: Starks, Lannisters and Targaryens are the three major protagonist houses in the show, and "The Lion and the Dragon" is the only combination of two of those that hasn't yet been used. It ties in with a Dany/Cersei showdown, but could also at a stretch refer to Jon, Tyrion or Jaime. I can see "The Lion and the Kraken" working if we extrapolate in a straight line from where s7 left off, but my money's on "The Lion and the Dragon" for s8e5 followed by "A Dream of Spring" for s8e6.

    Threads that will be dropped

    Yup, another three seasons of mooning about in Meereen can't be something anybody wants. Although I'd be surprised if Daario doesn't get some kind of a look-in before the end.

    By some estimates the Spanish Flu killed more people than both World Wars combined.
