  1. Arya Targaryen

    Can we talk about Jon?

    I think that he main reason why the whole kneeling was written that way was that: 1) He couldn't kneel before Dany promised him to help, because it would make Dany look lke an arrogant and ignorant bitch, and the writers couldn't allow that. 2) After that promise there was no need for kneeling, so it didn't make any sense, on the contrary, it caused several problems, some of which could be foreseen (like what the North will think of it...) But it resulted in one thing, and I'm pretty sure it was the main reason why it was done like that: It gave the opportunity to write a Lena Headey - Peter Dinklage scene. They wouldn't have met if Jon's kneeling hadn't caused problems. Tyrion would have never agreed to go to see Cercei alone. 3) And there may be a third reason as well: the writers knew that at one point Jon has to kneel, just to make the reveal of his parentage more sensational (to the characters) We don't know how it will play out, so I'm not so sure about that. Anyway my main critisims about the show is how they basically butchered Jon't character. He needs to be stupid to make Sansa look smarter (Arya acted stupid too, for the same reason). He does stupid shit all the time (to move the plot forward...) while he is supposed to be pretty smart about politics according to the books.

    Arya character arc

    This. I think Arya will end up as some kind of leader in the books. That being said, I somehow doubt, that the main character's ending will be that different in the show and the books. By main, I mean Jon, Dany, Tyrion, Arya, Bran and possibly Sansa, Jaime and Cersei. Any one of them may die. If not, I believe Jon will sit on some kind of throne (North or IT), and Arya will decide to stay with him. It's him, she is going home to, not Winterfell. I think Bran will die - as the 3ER, I expect some kind of connection to the NK's power, and maybe he has to die, so the NK can be killed. Jaime will kill Cersei, so I'm pretty sure she will die, and Jaime, too. If not, he might become some kind of Lord somewhere, or he can continue as Kingsguard and keep protecting Rhaegars son. Or Night's Watch, if it's still a thing after the Long Night 2.0. But I don't know about Sansa. If Jon sits the Iron Throne, Winterfell will be hers, so she will get what she wanted. (and I'm not sure, I want that, LOL.) Because, as others have noted above, Sansa is D&D's favourite. They dumbed Jon down so that Sansa would appear as more intelligent, and would shine in Winterfell as some mastermind (and I fail to see her as someone like that). Now, that Jon is gone, he somehow managed to regain common sense. But Arya arrived at Winterfell, and I'm seriously worried about how that will play out. And no, I don't think Sansa would betray Jon. But somehow I wonder, what kind of character-assassination will happen to Arya, so that once again Sansa will be the smart one and the one who solves problems (Littlefinger...). That being said, I don't mind if Sansa is the one who brings down Littlefinger - but I will be terribly upset if they dumb down Arya in order to do so. So I keep my fingers crossed that Sansa and Arya manages to work together, Sansa manipulating Littlefinger and Arya seeing through his bullshit, Bran providing some info, and in the end, Sansa can finish him. On a side note - I have no idea how the season will end, whether Jon learns the truth about his parents, whether Cersei is defeated by Dany (I don't think she will die, but she might lose all her powers and allies, like Euron). Maybe Dany manages to take the Iron Throne, sits on it, and that's the end of the season. But whatever it is, and whoever seems like the winning side, I think that will completely change in the last season, even if it's just 6 episodes. So I keep my fingers crossed, that even if in this season Sansa will outshine Arya in Winterfell (and sadly I expect her to do so), in the last season they will surprise us, and Arya might get something back from her book-character.

    And ADWD as well - Bran's storyline. Some of Theon, too, if he goes to Moat Cailin with Ramsey.

    It probably makes sense if Jon is going beyond the Wall again, before the fight, to kill the NW members at Crasters. This may be the time when Bran opens his third eye and maybe we get some Jon-warging-Ghost as well (and Gohst, finally! after two seasons, it is high time to remind the audience that Jon has a direwolf, too). It would be sort of weird if that happens after Bran is dead (or so Jon thinks). Bran may even be able to communicate with Jon, and tell him that he shouldn't tell anyone he is alive and just leave him to do what he has to.
