  1. I don't think the same thing will happen in the books. There were a lot of "rumors" about sightings of ice dragons. I suspect the Others will have at least one of these and they will kill one of Dany's dragons - not weird ice spear. Another dragon probably will get killed by weirwood arrows after Bran clues them in. Even in the books, Rhaenys and her dragon got killed by a lucky shot from dornish scorpion. Show kind of got it right that if you mount enough scorpions on the walls/ships, catch dragon by surprise and you might get lucky with 1 shot. You won't get another shot if the dragon doesn't go down instantly.
  2. Thats a tricky question! See in original Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Scarlett O'Hara had X amount of children (I don't remember). HOWEVER, there is another famous follow-up book called Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley where Scarlett O'Hara has yet another child. It even had a TV mini series made with Tim Dalton. So HOW many children does Scarlett O'Hara has - X or X+1?

    The Missing Scenes/Episodes

    At this point I am not sure how GRRM going to lead to Jon killing Dany to "save" the realm. I have been re-reading Fire and Ice and frankly, Aegon I, Maegar, Jaeharys I, the whole Dance of the Dragons was far more ruthless than ANYTHING that Dany has done that would shock Tyrion and Jon so (at least them in the books). And those guys were called - great leaders, ruthless conquerors, conciliators but not mad (other than Maegar due to his 6 wives). So Dany burning down King's landing after Cersei's defiance? Not out of character of ANY of these leaders, and not just Targyriens but same Tywin who has done the same. The only thing I see is that Westeros so sensitive after her father Aerys and his "burn them all", that ANY overreach by her will be considered "mad queen" act.

    Alternative ending: Jorah wasn't supposed to die!

    It would make far too much sense in the series, however at this point D&D decided to stick with GRRM original ending so Jon kills Dany and leaves for the Wall, regardless if it fits or not.

    Valyrians in GoT :: why so inbred?

    In the WoI&F as well as F&B, it was mentioned that all Valyrian noble/dragonlords houses married in-the-family to keep "the blood pure". There were valyrians and there were Valyrians. Furthermore, it was mentioned it was some sort of event/holiday/election when the Doom happened so ALL dragonlords, noble houses and all their dragons were gathered at the Valyria, other than Targaryens, so they were all killed. Frankly, in retrospect seems if Doom wasn't natural catastrophe, the timing is so suspicious I'd say Faceless Men really were involved. There were two Valyrien families left other than Targyriens - Velaryons and Centagar as well as Baratheon bastard - Oris. Early on Targyriens did intermarry with Velaryons but as those 2 other houses declined in power, they stopped. Basically, at this point all Valyriens left in Essos are Valyrien equivalent of small folk. At this point, Targyrien's first choice is in-house, second choice Westerosi noble families.

    Loose Ends

    That was the show utilizing fAegin storyline from the books, my theory is that Dany assumes he is fake and will "righteously" slaughter him and his. and when she meets book Jon, him being Rhaegar's son won't be an issue for her this much.

    *SPOILERS* Jon useless information

    I think the whole point of GRRM subverting usual tropes means that R+L=J doesn't matter. The revelation would come too late, will mean nothing and willing change nothing in the end. It will be actually surprisingly me, if anyone outside main characters will ever find out. As for Jon being punished for being Queenslayer, I suspect in the books Jon will decide himself to go beyond the wall, partly in his disgust with everything and partly because he might get this happy ending there by stealing and marrying Val who won't expect anything else from him. And this situation will cause the call for Great Council, to find replacement for now empty throne

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    I think D&D took from lot fAegon/JonCon storyline besides Jorah getting grayscale. I think Dany will fight fAegon and kill him urged on by Tyrion who convinces her he is fake. JonCon will be the one triggered by the bells and will do something cruel. Dany will get together with Jon and try to marry him precisely because she will suspect/know that he is Rhaegar's son not just King of the North, she will learn about it before he does. (That book that Maester Mewin took). Jon will kill Dany and then will himself decide to go north. Perhaps for Val. Stannis will burn Shireen in a failed attempt to get a dragon, but this will factor in Jon's resurrection instead. I don't think Arya will kill the Night King. Bran will probably end up as the King of Westeros and Tyrion as his Hand. Barristan Selmy will get executed for treason, for trying to ally with fAegon because he will think Dany is losing it. Things I hope for in the books: all prophecies are addressed, even if meaningless, as long as they are not forgotten about.
  9. Jaime's arc was always meant to be a circle. He would break up with Cersei, get together with Brienne, but comes back to Cersei to die together. I also suspect valonqar prophecy to be fulfilled when Jaime and Cersei get trapped somewhere, she will ask Jaime to kill her so she won't suffer and he will choke her before dying of his wounds/killing himself. Roof/stones might collapse on still living Jaime though. Varys probably taken Barristan Selmy place in the show. I suspect when Dany hears of fAegon she will show first signs of madness and Barristan will want to switch sides. At this point sans last episode, the whole books storyline is kind of predictable, even with book deviations.
  10. I ended up with: For Gold - Jorah (the one that already happened) or Syrio For Blood - Barriston Selmy (because he thinks fAegon is real thing and less psycho than Dany - like Varys did in show), Tyrion (when he finishes with mid-life crisis and is consumed with remorse and guilt towards his siblings). For Love - Jon (when he kills Dany even though he loves her to save the realm) though Tyrion might qualify here better than for Blood.
  11. Over past few days I been freaked out about rumors for new dark theory regarding my favorite Targaryen that have been very upsetting for me. That theory supposedly states that in order to hatch dragon eggs in Summerhall, the nicest Targ king - Egg was planning to sacrifice his newborn and only grandson Rhaegar. Thus the tragedy had occured because someone, like Dunk, prevented the sacrifice. Is there really such theory? Can someone point me in the right direction for it?

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Will Arianne actually like Aegon? I mean she was kind of freaked out by Lysono Maar's Targeryen looks. She actually thinks, its a good thing that she is not marrying Viserys if he looked like that. (Silver and gold hair, eyes pale lilac)

    [Spoilers] EP610

    Thats what I am assuming, otherwise its too easy for Dany, she could basically finish Cersei in space of one episode, but have Cersei ally with Euron - that would be a good 4-6 episode arc I don't think Arya targetting Jaime, I saw the flirtation thing as more of consideration type thing - like does he deserve to be on my list? She might follow/use him to get to Cersei, who is her target thats for sure. I kind of see Arya infiltrating KL getting close to kill Cersei, like almost there and then see Jaime killing Cersei!

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    The reason I am thinking there is a threat to her is because she thinks so herself. When Daemon objects to her going - Arianne thinks that she has "uneasy" feelings that she would be forced to go on the ship whether she wants to or not, she gets completely negative and threatening impressions from the Golden companies like "making her skin crawl", "cold eyes", etc. Furthermore, Golden Company mercenaries basically assume that she will go to Storms End and her Dorne's support automatically, they dismiss her words and they definitely don't attempt to woo her. And she is getting a bit concerns Then she basically gets her chin up, and decides to do her duty - exactly like Quentin, because she needs to check out Aegon, and dismissed her instinct and plunges in.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Doran didn't send her there to make an alliance, he sent her to investigate and let him know if there should be an alliance in the first place, and not waste Dorne's money and blood on pretenders with no blood ties to Martells. She didn't stumble yet. By thinking that she has no choice but to go to JonCon she is making a mistake. She really should have send Daemon there regardless of her feelings of honor and such. And after her impetuous POVs earlier now she is behaving like Quentin by allowing her assumptions, pretensions of power to cloud her judgement. She will not be JonCon's hostage - she will have a huge crush on fAegon who probably will have zero interest in her other than her Dorne connections.
