  1. Sansa's always been a favourite of mine, so I'm thrilled with her ending. She's campaigned tirelessly for Northern independence in the last few seasons (and I think she will in the books, too). She was also in King's Landing to get Jon out of jail and back home, where he belongs. I take that to mean she also wanted him reinstated as King in the North, but that wasn't to be. And I'm glad. She deserves this, Winterfell is hers. The North is hers. She's a great ruler and will be a great Queen. I've spent more time than I care to remember defending her in various FB groups etc. The hate directed at her from the start has been completely irrational and unjustified, which only made me love her character more. And this is more than vindication. She's the best!

    [Spoilers] Episode 806 Discussion

    Jon was probably happiest when beyond the wall and it seems like he can travel south to visit Winterfell on occasion. So I think it sounds like he got a good deal, tbh.

    Yeah, that's nonsense. Dany was fully responsible for her own actions. Dany alone.

    I was wondering that. And now Sansa is Queen in the North, too. She could pardon him,

    Queen in the North?

    I can't watch it yet, but this spoiler thread is getting me all kinds of excited for tomorrow night. Glad that Sansa appears to have showed up.

    Unpopular Opinion: Support Daenerys

    I don't recall reading about Elizabeth I burning London to the ground and slaughtering most of its citizens, though.

    This ending is nothing but Bitter

    I was really down about the ending, when I first read it. It sounded pretty awful, especially in sparse bullet-point form. But I think Sansa will be great in the North (and it sounds like the North is getting its independence). Jon will enjoy being back at Castle Black and among his old friends north of the wall. If he is rebuilding the NW, it will be much different thing to the one he joined - the enmity between the Watch and the Freefolk will be gone, relations will be much improved etc, etc. Moreover, Jon can go south and visit his sister in Winterfell whenever the fancy takes him. Although there's no time to show Sansa's future, she will presumably land a good match and bear the next generation of Starks. Beyond the Starks, I have no idea who will be doing what. I'll have to wait and see, in that regard. But for the Starks at least, it all seems okay-ish.

    Thoughts on Arya possibly dying/failing to kill Dany?

    Don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful scene especially Tyrion's chivalrous hand-kiss, just like the chivalry she dreamed of as a girl. But if they had followed that moment with the two of them going out there and taking down wights, like a pair of badasses, it would have been even better. However, given the nature of Sansa haters, they probably would have just condemned her as a cold-blooded kinslayer (they were her ancestors after all).

    Thoughts on Arya possibly dying/failing to kill Dany?

    Sansa's already used the dragonglass dagger Arya gave her. She and Tyrion were killing wights in the crypts, but they cut the scene. It seemed they preferred another mean girls moment with her, rather than show her actually doing something cool. This is actually my biggest complaint about that episode. I would have loved to actually see her and Tyrion taking down wights rather than cowering behind Ned's tomb.
  11. At some point, between episodes 3 and 4, I realised I just don't care anymore and went looking for leaks and spoilers. Until then I'd been very careful to avoid them, staying off social media etc until Monday nights, when the eps aired in the UK. But then I thought reading the leaks would help me brace myself for just how crappy it's about to get. I think it has softened the impact, tbh. To the point where I'm generally okay with where they're going.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Yes, it was the statement that Jon is "exiled" as punishment for killing Dany that made it feel like he was being tossed out of the realm, never to return. But that might not be the case, especially if he just chooses to be with the freefolk - which is entirely reasonable. As for the Night's Watch - I'm guessing the threat will never truly be gone? I mean, they all thought the Others were a fantasy for hundreds (possibly thousands?) of years. Now they don't want to let their guard down and make the same mistake of complacency? Realistically, though, I think you're probably right and we won't get a full explanation of that.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    The more I think about it, the more I do warm to it. And yes, it's definitely better than Jon being dead and/or shackled to Dany for all eternity. If he does restart the Night's Watch, I daresay it will be a totally different thing to what came before it. Jon can end the enmity between the freefolk and the southerners. Perhaps, even, he could pave the way for proper trade relations between the far north and their southerly neighbours? And I don't think Jon would be truly exiled, either. He will still be free to visit Winterfell and check in on Sansa etc. I think that was what made me feel a little sad: the implication that he'd never see his home or his family again.

    Jon's biggest error?

    But he ratted Sansa and Varys out. Had he acted properly and helped Varys, he could have prevented what happened. Instead, he enabled it, just as Jon did.

    Jon's biggest error?

    And what would that have achieved? Hate Sansa all you like, many people do. But Sansa's the only character left with a bit of sense. Had Tyrion listened to her, he could have avoided what happened in King's Landing. As for Jon, he's thick as a brick and without Sansa covering for him, he'd have been lost a long time ago.
