  1. The sad truth is, we don't know if Bran will be a good king or not, because we don't know Bran. The writers never let us get to know him. I guess the guy they sideswipe us with as king wasn't important enough for us to spend any quality time with onscreen.

    The Storytelling is bad, not the story

    I agree wholeheartedly - bad storytelling of a good story. But then, if D&D had the mad storytelling skills of Martin, they'd have books of their own and wouldn't be adapting other writers' works. Without Martin's roadmap and amazing dialog to follow in those later seasons, they were sure to muck it up, and they did. Those fans who have never read the books do not understand how much the dialog was taken straight from the books in those first four seasons.

    Bran book vs show

    Yup. He was just 7 when the story began. I can't see them unanimously selecting a child as king. And, there's no reason to believe book Bran will be the same as show Bran. Martin is a master storyteller.
  4. Only because he knew Cersei might not win. He was waiting to see which side was the victor.
  5. I don't see how Bran can be both King and the 3ER. Wasn't he supposed to become one with the underground roots of the giant, ancient Weirwood tree north of the wall, just like the 3ER before him? Isn't being the 3ER a full-time job? The way things went down in this final episode, I'm left with the creeping feeling that Bran has orchestrated everything that happened in seasons 7 and 8.

    Varys' Letters

    ...which begs the question, how did he suddenly commit the monumental blunders that resulted in his execution? He's way smarter and sneakier than that. The Spider, the Master of Whispers, would never have been so careless. I don't believe the D's ever really read the books.

    This is all Jon’s fault

    Jon was just 14 years old when he joined the Night's Watch. I'm not clear on how many years have passed to reach this point in the saga, but he's still just a kid. Wisdom and political savvy come with age and experience...no one is born with those qualities.

    Cersei & Tyrion - Possible Twist

    We all love Tyrion and wish there was a logical explanation for the dumbing down of the books' smartest and wittiest character. Sadly, the most likely explanation is that we moved beyond the roadmap of Martin's books, and the D's aren't capable of providing the same level of writing for Tyrion. Much of his dialogue early on was taken verbatim from the books. He's now been reduced to poor decision making, and lame, repetitive cock jokes. While your explanation would serve to maintain Tyrion's intelligence, it would also serve to destroy the honesty and integrity that made us grow to love him in the first place.

    This is all Jon’s fault

    Arguing whether or not Jon shared his feelings with Dany is just silly. We don't know, and we can't know. The show didn't follow Jon and Dany 24/7, and we weren't privy to their post-coital conversations.

    Poor children...

    It's very common for people to name their children after TV/movie characters, literary characters, or historical figures they admire. It doesn't make them stupid (as someone previously claimed). Names are subjective - what I like, others may not like. There have been studies that show unusual names often have a highly positive impact on children.

    Arya will die at the hands of...

    It had no blanket or saddle, just a bridle, so probably Dothraki.

    How will they react to what happened?

    Then Martin must have forgotten to share that tidbit with the writers, because she tried it again, quite successfully I might add, in Vaes Dothrak when she burned all the Khals.

    How will they react to what happened?

    Now that Cersei is dead, the biggest threat to Dany's hold on the 7 Kingdoms is Jon. As long as Jon lives, her legitimacy as a ruler is in question, and rightly so, as Jon is the rightful heir (whether he wants it or not). Politically speaking, Dany must kill Jon. I have no idea whether she'll actually try to kill him next week, but wouldn't it be funny if she tries to "dracarys" Jon, but he doesn't burn because of his Targaryen blood.

    Where in Kings Landing? It's destroyed. I think you may be right that she summons the remaining nobility to bend the knee, but I think it will happen at Dragonstone, and Dany will make Dragonstone the new seat of power.
