  1. I think Northern independance being a key point in the last few seasons was the only reason that they wanted this storyline to be completed so badly. But in this constellation it just makes absolutely no sense for it to play out this way. Why would anyone buy that the North wants to be independant if there is a Stark ruling over the seven kingdoms? What possible justification could there be for it to be two seperate kingdoms both ruled by Starks other than Sansa wanting her own kingdom to rule over so badly. Why should Bran allow this when it should be obvious that it is a possible source for new riots to form in the other kingdoms. Especially after he sent Jon Snow to the wall just to ensure peace with the Unsullied who sailed away five minutes later and therefore aren't even part of the seven kingdoms anymore. And if they want it to play out this way, at least show a witty way how Sansa manipulated the others so things would develop according to her wishes. I mean why have her whole development since season 1 be about learning to play the game of thrones by having her interact with the best players at this game, if all she needs to do in the end is ask her brother to get her will?

    On Arya's Arc, and Others'

    At first I was really disappointed with Jaime's arc, but then I also thought about the comparison to the struggle of an addict and I think it is really fitting. Of course it is disappointing for an outsider to have to witness Jaime fall back in his development, but that is exactly what can happen in a rehabilitation - they can make so much progress, build a new life for themselves and as an outsider you think the situation is handled and suddenly addiction just takes over again and pulls them back in . Also this feeling of no self-worth he shows fits that really well. And it actually displays a more complex and therefore also more human development than just "bad guy turning good". It opens the door to a so much more elaborate outlook on the question of what makes a person good or bad or what being a good or bad person even means.
