    Season 8 Predictions?

    The kind of love idealized by the books is Ned and Cat's imo: A marriage started in good faith and with common goals where love is built brick by brick. Ending predictions: As a Sansa fan, the one thing I'm fairly confident about is Sansa remaining attached to Winterfell. As for the Iron throne, if it still exists I think Gendry has as much chance of ending up on it as anyone. His blood-claim is just as good as any Targ's. Also I think it would have a nice kind of symmetry for Arya to end up with the destiny originally meant for Sansa: married to a Baratheon king on the Iron throne. (It would be a nice call back to Robert and Lyanna too. Also it would fulfill Ned's promise to her about being married to a king.) My guess is that Dany ends up dead.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    Yeah, but they don't actually have to have him do anything other than lie around... and the wolf wouldn't be filming with actual actors (like how the dogs that ate Ramsay were added in). Also there's wolf dogs that look pretty much like wolves. I'm not saying it's not difficult, but it's not CGI. Also apparently San Diego Zoo puts on shows with their arctic wolf:

    Are the direwolves actually CGI? I thought they filmed actual wolves and added them to the scenes later. Isn't that a practical effect that's been around forever? It doesn't seem like it should cost that much.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    Gendry is Robert's true heir and arguably has as much claim to the iron throne as anyone (including Jon and Dany)... he just doesn't have the armies to back it up.

    Night King appreciation thread

    I bet the Night King is really lonely...poor guy. He probably hasn't talked to anyone but Craster and Craster's sons in centuries and is really out of practice. Amazing that he managed to raise all those boys by himself. The life of a single parent can be tough.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    All good questions. I have no idea. Their continued presence at Winterfell seems to imply that they will continue to fight with the North, for now.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    Yes, I was responding to a post talking about needing to bend the knee in order to get an ally to help you. I was pointing out that the Vale forces saved the North last season yet didn't claim the North for Robert Arryn.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    I do think there's every chance that Jon will end up rejecting his Targaryen heritage. It's also possible that he'll abdicate the northern throne. This would make for a good continuation of the journey you're describing. The final phase could consist of him being offered all the titles in the world but rejecting them to live the way he thinks is right.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    I completely agree with this. Jon bending the knee was a major betrayal. *And* they gave the Night King a way to destroy the wall. Don't forget that part. They would have been way, way better off if he'd just said "Thanks for the dragon glass... bye!"

    If this logic holds shouldn't Dany be asking the allegiance of the true lord of the north: Robert Arryn?

    The younger, more beautiful queen . . .

    Except they didn't guarantee peace during the first Targ dynasty... why should they now? Well, I guess we'll find out what happens.

    The younger, more beautiful queen . . .

    I'm sure that's what the children thought when they created the white walkers. The dragons and the Targaryens have caused plenty of misery. Edit: The reigns of Aegon's successors were not exactly peaceful despite the example of one good king. You know what? There weren't any major wars during Robert Baratheon's reign either (the greyjoy rebellion was over in less than a year).

    The dragons are basically WMDs; their destruction would be a blessing.

    [Spoilers] EP707 Discussion

    Jon and Dany go together like peanut butter and gasoline. That relationship is not gonna end well imo. If they've made a gross magic baby, it will be one of the cringiest things in the entire series.

    Hell, if Cersei has a daughter and ends up dying giving birth... it could be her own fetus.
