    EPISODE 2 Predictions

    Without having seen any previews or even the trailer, these are my brazen, bold predictions or where I believe the story should be going in episode 2 : Edd will tell Bran & Meera that Jon and Sansa have retaken Winterfell. A few hours later, Melisandre arrives with a warning that tomorrow there will be an attack on the wall. Mel speaks with Bran and senses that he has been tainted with the mark of the others, she is repulsed by him. Meera fends off Melisandre. Bran & Meera spend the night at Castle Black. Bran, replays a vision of how the Wall was created. He sees the 3ER holding hands with, some children of the forest and another man is there too, who 3ERaven calls Lord Stark. Cersei says they can call on support from Littlefinger’s Vale Army. Jaime informs her that the Vale joined forces with Jon Snow’s wildlings and have retaken Winterfell. Cersei thinks that LF has claimed WF in the name of the crown just like she tasked him with doing. She surmises that Jon Snow will never have control of WF due to his bastard status, but considers him a threat none the less. Hoping to distance him self from her, Jaime asks if he should go and parlay with Jon Snow but Cersei demands that Jaime stay by her side. LF explains to Sansa and Jon that they must go to King’s Landing to negotiate with the crown. Sansa agrees to go with him to Jon's dismay. Sansa assures him she will be ok with Brienne (& Pod) with her. Yara & Theon are shown fishing and sailing around the coast when they happen upon driftmark where they meet Gendry asking for passage back to the mainland as he says his skiff was ruined in a storm. Yara takes interest in him and says he might make a good cabin boy, Gendry tells her he is good at smithing. We see Euron's Fleet attacking the Dornish coast. His men surprise attack at night steal all the caskets of wine and even take the sand snakes hostage. Back at the Wall Meera tells Bran the story of the laughing knight. They slowly begin to kiss, and Bran briefly accesses her memories to a time when her and Jojen visited Winterfell with her father. Bejen says to Howland, "she asked me to give you this letter." Howland looks at it and says "leave it with her body." At Dragonstone Dany’s crew along with Greyworm and Tyrion, draw up battle plans to attack King’s Landing. Varys informs them that Queen Cersei has taken over the city killing off King Tommen and Queen Margery. Dany questions if they should allow them the chance to surrender. Tyrion assures her that Cersei would never surrender. Dany states that she wishes to address the people. Tyrion believes that they will expect an attack coming from the east coast but, will not expect a simultaneous attack from North & South. That night Tyrion & Dany explore the castle they find something interesting in an unexpected area. Back at WF Jon is in the god's wood when he hears a voice whispering to him. "Jon" It’s the 3 eyed raven,Jon asks." what are you? "I'm your brother" The Raven is perched on a Weirwood root. A tree face appears through the dirt wall. Bran? He asks. Bran tells him to "follow me I have to show you something" He follows him to Lyanna’s grave. The Raven communicates to him and says, look closer. As Jon uncovers a hidden box with a scroll, the scroll says: deliver to Howland Reed.

    The Obsidian Wall

    That's only a stock answer,and it's obvious knowledge. I am asking people to speculate on what we don't know, based on what we do know about the CotFs inclination for using dragonglass as well as how the Valyrians loved to use it to build structures.

    the Stigmata of Melisandre's murder

    Yes looking back on it now, and really dwelling on details like Mel & everyone else leaving the room except ghost and Davos, and the fact that the ceremony had no resemblance to what Thoros did to rez Beric, leads me to believe that Mel might of had nothing to do with it, but rather it was some unexplainable phenomenon such as warging would be to the lay person. That isn't to say that Mel doesn't have a significant role to play going forward. I'd like to see her be responsible for bringing Jon and Dany together.

    What's inside Gregor?

    I really have to wonder,did Qyburn use Dragonglass to make Gregor Clegane become a wight? We did see some rather telling Text in screenshots from S7e1 where Sam is reading a book on Dragonglass and it says fragmented "ingestion, not harmful , cure for illness ,diseases" We know he was thrown out of the Citadel, (probably by ArchMaester Ebrose) for trying to surpass Ebrose in studies of biology by doing "forbidden experiments". If the Citadel is probably the only place that has info on dragonglass, doesn't it seem most likely that Qyburn being so ambitious would have acquired it and attempted to use it? Also knowing what we know about Maesters and the probable conspiracy against magic that most certainly would be reason to give Qyburn the boot. Futhermore Gregor does seem rather wightish, and the only other method we know of raising the dead is through the last kiss ritual , which seems very unlikely that Qyburn would perform on Gregor how else could he have possibly raised greg without the obsidian? Now you are probably thinking how or where did Qyburn could have gotten his hands on Dragonglass. Well it wouldn't be that hard seeing as how they have Glass Candles made of it at the Citadel. Did Qyburn shove a glass candle inside Gregor? That makes for an even more intriguing theory knowing how glass candles can manipulate dreams and communicate telepathically. Is the power Qyburn holds over Gregor the same the Night King has over the wights?

    White Ravens

    I was wondering, since the Night's watch are often referred to as Crows, and we have lots and lots of animal symbolism...We know that White Ravens are more rare ,larger, and smarter than black ones, and they will fight black ravens if near making them mirror opposites of black ravens.The white ravens are used only by Maesters to signify a change in season so in a sense they represent change. We have many groups of characters that could conceivably represent a crow or raven, but what person and group of people represent the white ravens?

    The Obsidian Wall

    What are the chances that the show will just reveal that the wall is actually pieced together or consisting heavily of Dragonglass? Is it already a forgone conclusion? Is there a link between the children's magic and valyrian magic?
  7. With the way things are going in the new season,especially with episode 9, I can't help but wonder if Jon Snow's mortality is somehow tethered to Melisandre's. Things are finally looking better for Sansa, Jon and basically the good guys. They had a major victory, reclaimed there home, took revenge on probably their biggest threat other than the White Walkers...this is all a sign that things are just about to go horribly wrong. Following the rules of gravity that what goes up must come down, such is the narrative of ASOIAF. So what could possibly happen that could ruin things for Jon and his plans to defend the North from the WWs? Well he could die...again. yes I know the probability of him dying again so soon, has gotta be slim but, when being resurrected, there's always a price. Maybe that price is that Jon's body partially belongs to the Lord of light. Mel speculated last episode that Jon could have been brought back for Any minute purpose. What I theorize comes from Mel's prophecies in the book about "the lord of light made us male & female for a reason." and "there is great power in the connection." This leads me to believe that R'hllor brought back Jon so that he can produce a messiah child. The mother of this child would also need to be some one very significant, chosen by R'hllor if you will, and perhaps even baptised by fire as a sense of resurrection. Of corse I am speaking of Daenerys. However I believe Mel still has a very important role to play in this, otherwise the Lord would not be keeping her alive. It seems that Mel will need to help conjugate the marriage between Jon & Dany. Also perhaps Melisandre is needed to "bless" the child while in the womb or otherwise. The Child could easily be AA reborn or TPWWP. However, if man interferes in the lord's plan and exacts his revenge, there will surely be consequences. Im speaking of corse about Davos looking to put an end to the red woman for her unforgivable and unnecessary, burning of Shireen. Futhermore it might very well come down to Jon being asked to execute Melisandre, putting the blame and burden solely on him. Getting back to the idea that Jon Snow's life is some what tethered to Mel's,I feel as though Mel is a vessel in which the Lord is able to channel his power through and thus keep Jon a float. If Mel were to parish I feel that Jon would begin to suffer. Maybe his wounds would return, fester, burn, or perhaps something more subtle. I would look towards stories such as the 10 commandments as examples of wherein man invokes God's wrath.Think about what happened to Samson when he betrayed God and allowed his hair to be removed, or when Adam and Eve sinned and immediately became embarrassed for the 1st time of their naked bodies. Jon might become estranged, listless, or mentally twisted like patch face. Whatever the particulars come about, I see the outcome of Mel's fate being crucial to Jon's future. What type of impact do you think Mel's murder would have on the characters?

    How would you rate episode 502?

    Season 5 Episode 2 Review This was an interesting episode that took an in depth look at rulership through the examples of Doran, Cersei,Tyrion / Varys, Dany,Stannis, and Jon. Mercy seemed like a central theme as well. I was anticipating flashbacks scenes, and a lot more from Dorne. The set of Dornish water garden is some of the most elaborate and incredible sets to date. I’m actually thankfully for the reprieve of sexuality in favor of story development. Great to see Drogon all big and fierce , except I’m pretty sure that scene was meant for Quaithe. Drogon just wanted to see what all the fuss was about and get back to swooping down terror. But seriously, where’s Quaithe? I have mixed feelings about Dany executing that guy felt like it was a tad out of character. Still the scene was dramatic and fits into the episode theme and maybe the season theme. Arya’s parts were shallow. I don’t see why they waited till next episode to see her inside, especially if they are going to call the episode House Black and White. On a side note I just have to say how the holy hell can they cast Areo Hotah without a freakin beard?!? He’s a bearded priest for God sake. That’s an easy cast, just get a guy that can grow a beard, but no instead they blatantly disrespect the fans and GRRM, with total disregard for character back story and fan appreciation. Give him a damn beard and a damn axe or otherwise rename the character ! Why couldn’t we get 1 scene of Trystane and Myrcella or some of the sand snakes? Doran is a little on the dull side. Why not include a sweeping shot of the Dornish deserts or mountains as it leads into the location? Dorne is a very exotic place, more than just water gardens, it deserved a better intro compared to the bleak city of Braavos. Ah well. Hey it was funny seeing Lollys, even though thats not how i pictured her. Not bad for episode 2, still holding my interest soundly without pissing off my inner fan boy too much. 7/10

    How would you rate episode 501?

    Overall I liked this episode. I think it's quite an improvement from past season premieres, which are usually slow and limited in characters. We didn't get to see Braavos, The North, or Dorne which was a bit disappointing but we cant expect everything so soon, and we got an awesome scene of dragons, plot development, and of corse gratuitous nudity. Strange that, a lot of characters seem to be more bitter than usual this time, and everyone was saying "perhaps" oddly quite often Great cinematography as usual.Acting was decent, It flowed well. A few surprises. Not a cliffhanger ending, but you cant expect that every time. I give it 6 outta 10

    How would you rate episode 405?

    My thoughts on Game of Thrones season 4 episode 5 Contains no spoilers if you've seen the episode. This episode, even though it had dynamic , entertaining action near the end, I felt that the actual plot was uneventful. This midway point in the series is either a calm before the storm or a slumping low point in story before major uphill arcs. I was bothered by the lack of significance here, it was mostly just a lot of talking for the sake of talking. However, it was the standard quality acting that we've come to expect from the series. Where is Varys this hole time, why has he been absent like this entire season? Are they gearing him up for something big? I can't imagine they are. I was really hoping to see Theon & Ramsay reach Moat Caitlin this time, not sure why they are delaying that, or even Arya get on the ship, but we are denied both those occurrences in favor of..just banter. Funny how HBO spared us actually seeing Lysa and Petyr knocking it, while they make sure to show us details of the more glamourus people screwing. lol vanity? The highlight of the episode was defintely seeing Hodor snap chains and snap a neck, while Jon snow battled a ruthless killer. Excellent sword fight. I can't help but feel a little disappointed that Jon wasn't able to beat Karl on his own. He still has a ways to go in terms of fighting skill. However, it was satisfying to see Karl skewered like that, and to see Ghost get his just desserts. The subplot with Vargo/Locke came to a weak and abrupt end. Jon didn't even get to discover his treachery, leaving us to ask what was the point? Maybe Roose Bolton will grow impatient and send others to find out what happened to his hunter? Yet , I doubt it. Would have been much better had they included a conflict between Jon and Locke; a reason for them to pursue one another, but with the massive war at the wall coming I guess the show runners don't have time ( or patience?) Cersei seeking out an ally in Oberyn is rather odd. A complete 180 from the book where Oberyn favors Tyrion. No doubt this will turn around though. I believe this scene was simply just to remind viewers that the Martell's have Cersei's only daughter, which will become very important (in season 5?, 6? or 7?) lol. Where the heck is Varys? spying on them I hope.Dany: this is the point where most fans start moan and groan. Brace yourself, hateful comments and condescending remarks from fans about Danerys are coming. You must give her credit, she sees things through. The girl's got resolve. But will HBO be able to atone for the infamously loathed "Mereen saga" ? -Review by [email protected]

    [Book Spoilers] EP403 Discussion

    My thoughts on last night's episode of Game of Thrones season 4 ep 3: --VERY MINOR SPOILERS-- Good opening scene w/ Sansa. Just how I pictured it. Interesting how neither Sansa nor Littlefinger mentioned Tyrion. Even though they didn't say Amethyst I'm still happy they used the term "the strangler" They actually handled the aftermath of Joff's death really well maybe even better than the book. Marg. was def in on it. It's noteworthy that her grandmother never mentioned Littlefinger or the ramifications the murder had on Tyrion. Varys: oddly absent. Bronn: I can't help but wonder if he is part of an upcoming plot w/ Shae. In the book Cersei didn't resist Jaime nearly as much; I guess they are trying to appeal to the female audience, but Cersei is supposed to be a horrible person, and Jaime is still a sleaze at best, weak to his own indulgences. So now HBO has officially ruined Oberyn, despite that his scene w/ Tywin was an added bonus. I love that they addressed how much he knows about poison and that he could have been but most likely was not the culprit. Side note: Charles Dance is a superb actor. More Stannis? why? nothing's happening. No Mel this time? So we learn that the reason he hasn't gone to the wall yet is due to him not having enough ships. Interesting that they mentioned Braavos and the golden Company...where is this going? Wildlings ! "the Thenns" are legit badass. Dany: this new Daario fails to impress me. Would have been the perfect opportunity to introduce Strong Belwas! Arya: The hound's burn marks or lack there of in this season is really bothering me. I wish her story would move forward. I'm betting the hound will be ambushed. fairly good episode, but not dragon level good. I give it a 6/10

    They really really should have shown a glimpse of Coldhands, something for the non book readers to go, Who the hell is that? and look forward to.

    How would you rate episode 310?

    This episode had nice camera work, great shots / scenery, acting was tremendous , scenes should have transitioned better, nice way to tie up all the loose ends, even better than the books did in some regards, but overall im disappointed especially with the damn secret door at the night fort WTF hbo that was a complete missed opportunity for something original and mysterious. Last scene was just fluff
