    So, remind me why independence for the North is so important.

    Maybe it was important to restore things to the way they were thousands of years before the Targaryen invasion. Torrhen Stark bent the knee to the Targaryens and maybe it was to restore their independence to what it was before the Targaryens made them part of the seven kingdoms. Of course, this would require one to assume that Sansa’s motives were solely done for the North with no selfish personal motives whatsoever.

    The Iron Throne Episode script is out

    Not very helpful. We only know how the freefolk felt about following Jon. Jon steps forward into the sea of waiting faces. There is no suspicion in those faces, and no awe. Only trust. The Night’s Watch used to hunt them, but they will follow this Night’s Watchman.

    Mance and The Milkwater

    I get your point but I suspect at that point in time their immediate concern was being able to get the wildlings across the wall. Most freefolk didn’t like the idea of a wall anyway. It restricted their freedom and ability to roam as they please. The Wall was an impediment to getting the giants, mammoths and their host of thousands on the other side since they couldn’t climb the wall.

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    Just out of curiosity....where else is this occurring? Is it having a harmful effect on the writers and the HBO brand? Maybe I am naive but I thought the negativity was limited to forums like this and social media. The negative reactions and language used here is pretty typical to what I have experienced before for other shows when folks disliked the writing. HBO even expected some fan backlash. Also .....the opinions expressed here certainly do not reflect the majority of viewers reactions to the finale if polls like these are to be believed. https://people.com/tv/game-of-thrones-viewers-mostly-pleased-finale-poll/

    Did the writers confirm Jon’s ending?

    I think Ayra naming her direwolf after the Rhoynish warrior queen Nymeria who sailed 10 thousand ships across the Narrow Sea to Dorne was also a clue as to what Ayra might do. Maybe she will explore and find new lands just like Nymeria.

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    In Season 6 Daenerys was still in Meereen. If you read the article I linked in my initial post then you would have read that those scenes when she had gathered the Dothraki to go back to Meereen was suppose to have marked the shift in character from Dany in conflict to fully embracing fire and blood. I was just noting that got off track IMO once she decided to go after the NK because the viewers thought she was doing good and still being a savior. Maybe if she had just attacked and burned King’s Landing to the ground first then folks would have more clearly realized that she was a violent conqueror and not thought her change in character was so sudden or assassinated which is what the main topic post is about. Of course there are other instances showing Dany’s brutal side of her character but it was always balanced by a kinder and more compromising side before she turned completely dark. The transformation to pure violence was supposedly to have been in Season 6 (according to the director) but the author of the article said the writers did not do a very convincing job. I agree plus they didn’t follow up very well in Season 7 other than burning the Tarlys and that apparently still didn’t convince many fans she was really evil. It apparently took Season 8 Episodes 5 & 6 for most to get it and then many continued to deny it.

    What was the purpose of Jon Snow?

    So true. It seems like we are going in circles.

    What was the purpose of Jon Snow?

    Right and it is even worse in the books. Sometimes I wonder how Tyrion came up with those numbers he did about Daenerys killing more than all the rest of them.

    What was the purpose of Jon Snow?

    Tough call considering Tywin’s association with sadistic folks like the Bloody Mummers, The Mountain, and then orchestrating The Red Wedding. I have no love for him at all even though Charles Dance as Tywin in the TV series did some fine acting and was decent towards Ayra. I thought he was emotionally abusive to his children too. He might have stopped some atrocities at Harrenhal when he arrived but he allowed far too many others to continue beginning with letting Gregor Clegane burn the Riverlands after Tyrion was taken by Catelyn Stark. The Martells in Dorne thought he was a pretty bad dude too.

    Daenerys was having Grey Worm executing prisoners after they had surrendered so I fail to understand your point.

    Why didn't Jon simply refuse to accept banishment?

    Yes......that has already happened. EDIT: Just read this: Here in the chill damp darkness of the tomb his third eye had finally opened. He could reach Summer whenever he wanted, and once he had even touched Ghost and talked to Jon. So it happened while they were hiding in the crypts.

    Why didn't Jon simply refuse to accept banishment?

    I am rereading A Clash of Kings and it seemed to me Jon was opening his third eye in one of his wolf dreams when he confronted a weirwood tree with a face that looked like his brother. He wondered if his brother had always had three eyes. The tree reached down and touched him and told him to open his third eye like this. This is when he saw Mance Rayder gathering the freefolk along the Milkwater and knew their location. The warg eagle attacked Ghost with its talons. Ghost was hurt when he returned to camp and Qhorin Halfhand knew then Jon was a warg and he told Qhorin about his dream. What I don’t understand is how Bran was already the 3YR (crow) at that point in time. He hadn’t even left Winterfell yet.

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    Apparently we were suppose to have noticed a shift in Dany’s character back in Season 6 according to this article written in 2016. I agree that if you hadn’t read the books then you probably wouldn’t have realized that Dany was now through with peacekeeping and had decided to turn into a full blown violent conqueror. Her joining with the Northerners to go after the Night King implied her desire to defend innocents and so there was no indication in that storyline to reinforce the shift in her character from Season 6 so I can see why so many folks felt there was a sudden change which didn’t make sense to them. When you get a large segment of your viewing audience not following along then it is a failure of the writers and directing to adequately convey it in a convincing manner. https://www.vox.com/2016/6/2/11829546/game-of-thrones-episode-6-recap-daenerys-villain

    Writing awards for D&D!

    Disappointed that A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms was overlooked. It was my favorite.

    HBO’s own inconsistency with Jon’s ending.

    I did not say servitude. I said servanthood. Jon’s basic personality or character is one whose natural inclination is to protect and put the needs others before his own. This is called servanthood leadership style. He chooses to serve others by choice and not as a slave. He is unselfish and devoid of worldly ambitions which keep him from succumbing to greed and corruption. He is a man of honor and duty. He will sacrifice his own well being for others. Admirable qualities although some may deem as dumb choices at times. He brought the wildlings beyond the wall for their safety and to unite with the rest of the realm to defeat the Night King so I don’t see his time at The Wall as a failure. His desire to leave and fight for Robb, stay with Ygritte, and whether or not to kill Dany were a series of tests where he was forced to make hard moral choices. The choices he ultimately made were true to his basic character. Others before himself. I guess we will just have to agree to disagree about how we view Jon and his ending. I have really said all I care to say for now but will certainly be reading the last two books to see if I feel differently.
