    Now I don't have to say it.

    Heresy 209 Of Ice and of Fire

    I have a suspicion that it is connected to R+L=J being found out early on and maybe also the criticism of being lame he received for it.

    Heresy 209 Of Ice and of Fire

    With everything that has happened in the tv show, the parts of the books that got skipped, and the detailed way GRRM tells his story, it cannot be finished in seven books unless the red comet drops and kills them all or some unresolved ending like this. The story will not be finished by GRRM in written form.

    Heresy 209 Of Ice and of Fire

    The story is fantastic, but has loopholes in logic. The wildlings could have climbed the wall near a sealed, abandoned gate and reopen it, or attack Eastwatch with full force instead of Castle Black. Just for example ... About Craster: his mother is from Whitetree. We have compared the White Walkers to trees now and then. Are they hybrids of heart trees and boys with an obsidian spell?

    IMHO he is dead and around to serve a purpose. I don't want him to have a zombie child with Daenerys. On the other (PUN) hand: Jon Fire Wight making love to the mother of dragons: fire x fire = ice. The (Night) prince that was promised.

    Your heart's desire last words of GOT?

    My signature, which is of course a variation on the last lines of 'The Great Gatsby'.

    And then, after the end credits, Ned steps out of the shower "Cat, I had a weird dream... "

    Since I only drop in now and then since two (?) years, you man have discussed it already, and after more than two hundred threads you should. If Brandon hadn't been executed by the mad king, Ned might have been send to the wall instead of Benjen. Maybe he had been prepared for this and learned about "North of the wall" and there wasn't much reason for Benjen to tell Ned things he already knew? We often discussed a Stark connection to the Others. In the books we have the sacrifice of a man and Bran is able to taste his blood - my interpretation. In the tv show this scene is shifted to the COTF creating the Night's King, following the scene above it might be the Starks to do so in the books. Unrelated: Jon is a fire wight, he may become the flaming sword for Daenerys, the princess who was promised. Reading my post I realize I build a case for Bran being the Night's King. From a writer's perspective it is subverting a trope to start a book with the antagonist being a boy who gets crippled.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Since HBO has confirmed they will go for stories set before GOT, I assume that all magic has died by the end of the show: Daenerys, Jon Snow, Melisandre, the Night King, the dragons, the direwolves ... RIP That will be the bitter part of the ending, the price to pay for humanity to prevail. Tyrion and Sansa will rule, and they are already married.

    His name was Jon it rhymes with gone. More seriously, it looks like the famous fighters go out fighting except for Brienne. And Arya, but she's more of an assassin than a fighter. The age of heroes II ends. Brienne might cue Ulysses from the Troy movie: I walked among giants ...

    And then he drops the Jaqen H'ghar face and is Euron. Than he drops the Euron face and is Syrio. And then he drops the Syrio face and is ... The only way the show makes sense :-)

    As usual, not following the discussion but dropping in with wild ideas and smoking guns, apologies: Just wondered whether Bran ends up as the Black Gate by the end of the story.

    The way the show devolved the Night King's army will attack Winterfell and it will look like they will win when Jon shows up on hypersonic Drogon whom he was allowed to borrow from Daenerys to save the die.
