    Heresy 214 The Last Heretic

    Maybe this is another knot that slows GRRM's progress? In case he intended Aegon to be real, and have a dance with dragons between him and Daenerys, Jon being R+L would be Targaryen overkill, wouldn't it be? In the books I see Quentyn as a setup for Dorne siding with Aegon, and Daenerys killing him.

    The Giant of Bravos will fall and become the four-toed statue. Obviously the Night King will meet his end by dragonfire and become the smoke monster. Jack is Jon and both will be gone. Sam Hurley will save the day. All logic will be LOST.

    If there isn't an iron throne in the end it's technically correct but the stories could be different. You would need two books to remove all the people from the books that were cut from the show. And ravens. The books need supersonic ravens.

    Both is possible, IMHO. Like Jon was saved in the last minute in the 'Battle of the Bastards' by the army of the Vale arriving just in time, the army of the dead may win Winterfell and destroy it, but when all seems lost the Night King catches a dragonglass arrow (Anguy!) and his army dies with him. [Disclaimer: I'm not Jon Snow but I know nothing all the same]

    If this is the case, then Winterfell earns its name one last time. And regarding the Spanish spoiler the suggested betrayal may lead to Daenerys attacking KL without need. Maybe Jon + Daenerys kill each other then?

    Heresy 214 The Last Heretic

    I have been frustrated with the story since ADwD, but it is getting worse lately. The previewed Mercy chapter from TWoW is too close to child pornography for my taste, and from what we know the story goes nowhere. And I'm really scared that we have invested a lot of time and effort in this thread for analysing a story which may turn out to be another hidden prince saves the world tale. Yawn. That being said, I'm confident that the Others need to pass the wall for the conclusion. I wonder whether they were initially created jointly by the CotF and the First Men to seal their pact, as a kind of doomsday machine that would get triggered in case one of the parties violates the pact. When the Others appeared the last time they got triggered by the arrival of the Andals, and the last hero convinced the CotF that the Andals are not the First Men, and the CotF helped the last hero (First Men) to stop the Others. In this line of thinking the wall was build to stop the Others, basically fence them in, and the wildlings would be First Men. Now, what triggered the Others this time? I'm not sure about details, but convinced it ties into Summerhall and Rhaegar and Lyanna. And maybe Jon SNOW has to sacrifice himself (not necessarily dying) and becomes the new leader of the Others, leading them back into the LoAW?

    Did Tywin commit suicide by proxy?

    Over the years my perception of ASoIaF and GRRM has changed. My current view is that he has always been a screenwriter with a knack for creating scenes (moments, pictures) that soar when visualized. The Tower of Joy fight (which reminds me of the opening showdown from "Once upon a Time in the West"), the red wedding, ... , and this one. Which was also created for the last sentence of that chapter in the books. What has become obvious, especially in the later seasons, that it becomes difficult to connect the standout scenes in a meaningful way.

    Which questions need to be answered in season 8?

    Do you even watch the show? They got into the cave because the Night King tagged Bran. Then Bran crossed the wall and the Night King has the undead dragon blowing blue flame.

    The only white walker south of the wall we know of is ... Ghost. Jon knows Ghost belongs to the old gods.

    I guess the magic inside of the walk stops the wights, because they are reanimated by magic, but does not stop the wildlings as they are living beings. In other words: the magic inside of the wall is more importat than the height and size of the wall. Alternatively, GRRM fucked up.

    The overall context of Westeros being XXL Britain is pointing in this direction. Bran could be a version of Ivar, Ned being Ragnar. With Winterfell and KL supposedly being destroyed, Bran might found a new capital.

    Not knowing anything, but maybe a twist that makes us (or Westeros?) believe that Cersei won but it's actually Arya wearing Cersei's face?

    That would reduce the purpose of Daenerys to being sacrificed as Nissa Nissa so that Jon can kill the Night King. And the whole point of exploring Essos was?

    That would be crap. "We wanted it to happen, because ..."

    I thought euphemism. But in this reverse cycle Jon may get resurrected by fire (no spoilers) and has to die by ice.
