    Potential relationship Sansa/Tyrion ?

    Wow... she called him her *half* brother. How horrible! She said something mean to Arya! *gasp* Jk that's what sisters do as kids (it's not like Arya never said mean stuff back). Sansa was a bit of a snob? So what? So are all the Stark kids at first (including Jon and Arya). Tyrion still hasn't gotten over being a snob as an adult. You have major issues whenever Sansa thinks something even half-way not flattering about someone for a moment(even when she's being pressured to marry them). I wonder what you thought when Sansa tried to force herself to think of Tyrion as handsome on their wedding night? Did you think a forced child-bride, a prisoner of war, should be trying to do that? I think she should have been way madder. There is nothing wrong with anyone (man or woman) wanting to be in a romantic relationship with someone they are attracted to. I'm pointing out that Tyrion judges women (not just ones he's involved in romantic relationships with) by their looks far more than Sansa judges men for theirs. Off the top of my head, in addition to Penny... I can also think of lollys stokeworth. Can you think of any example of Tyrion respecting and treating well a woman he doesn't find attractive? If you don't want to be called out on your double standards and issues with women/femininity, maybe don't be so obvious about them.

    Let's not pretend that there isn't a sexist double standard at play here. To correct you: Sansa has always been polite to everyone (even ugly people). However she dreamt of being married to a handsome man when she was a child (and there's nothing wrong with that). As far as I know, not only has Tyrion never been in a sexual/romantic relationship with anyone who wasn't conventionally attractive, but in the books, he actively treats conventionally unattractive women poorly. By this point in the books, Sansa can see beyond skin-deep ugliness in men (even if she doesn't want to be in a relationship with them). Tyrion cannot see beyond skin-deep ugliness in women. So who really needs to be taught the lesson? Sansa was ahead of Tyrion on this issue even as a child.

    A Mary Sue is an author-insert, wish fulfillment... which usually what that second plot I described is doing. (Sometimes it's reader wish-fulfillment).

    Why is it important for Sansa to do this and not Tyrion (who at least in the books is ruthlessly dismissive of any woman who's not beautiful)? Anyways, no I don't think it will happen.

    So some people are complaining that Rhaegar not interpreting a prophecy correctly makes the story 'unfulfilling' somehow... ...but that's literally one of the most classic story arcs out there: Character hears a prophecy Character commits all kinds of horrible acts as a result It turns out the character interpreted the prophecy incorrectly (lol hubris) It's a great narrative (and one GRRM is fond of). It also serves as good counterpoint to the most overused, overhyped plot out there: Boy is just an ordinary guy who gets picked on... poor him ... but wait! Turns out boy is actually super special because of prophecy/secret birth/random unearned thing When women are the heroes of this kind of plotline it's called 'Mary Sue'. I'm not sure if Arya will be *the one* who saves humanity from the WW in the books, but having Jon turn out to be a savior figure would be deeply cliche in the worst way. Jon can still be a hero and have a great story arc without being a prophesied savior of humanity. Anyways, now I hope we finally get a War of Three Queens.

    Maybe, but that doesn't change Beric's motivations

    In the books didn't he give up his life (permanently) to fulfill a promise to Arya (to reunite her with her mother)?

    That's my favorite ending note for Rhaegar.

    Then maybe TPTWP does something other than defeat the white walkers?

    Was that help neutralized when they rose up and started fighting for the other side though?

    I don't remember that. I think we see people assume TPTWP would be a Targ because they are the royal house (but of course when the north declares independence the Starks become a royal house). Correct me if I'm wrong.

    So was gaining the help of Dany and her forces worth it? How helpful were her forces?

    I'm not sure we actually know that. We know a bunch of supposed signs that someone might be TPTWP, but for what that prince is actually supposed to do in any detail? I'm not sure.

    This is the important question.

    If TPTWP was about killing the night king then... yeah, guess so! Honestly, I'm happy for it to be anyone except Jon (because Rhaegar Targaryen was a trash person who doesn't deserve to have any of his actions even slightly justified) Arya's awesome anyways.
