    Why does the Night King want to kill Bran

    Thanks Amaretto in letting me know I'm not the only one scratching my head on this. Just about everything else in the HBO series can sorta be explained. But I still don't get it. Reddit had a theory of Bran becoming the Night King which I don't get either. We had this penultimate moment in "The Long Night" in which the NK & forces have breached every line of defense. It seemed to me the series was trying to convey that if the NK kills Bran, it's game over for the humans. My feeling was if Bran dies, who cares? While I like the character Bran, the series was making Bran to be some kind of endgame "King" in a game of chess. Checkmate if you get him. But why?
  2. I thought I saw somewhere posted that if the NK kills bran, he (the NK) becomes immortal. I can’t corroborate that theory. And even if true, doesn’t sound like a compelling reason to focus so much effort on.
  3. I thought this season started pretty weak. But what a finish. 10! Fantastic!
  4. If I could give it an 11, I would.
  5. 10. Enjoyed this episode very much. Only sad thing is have to wait another 10 months for the next episode. :(

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 505

    10. I'm no unsullied but I'm enjoying this season as I have absolutely no idea what to expect in these episodes. Awesome dragon footage tonight! Loved Valyria! Enjoyed Roose/Ramsey/Sansa/Walda/Theon scenes.

    [Book Spoilers] EP407 Discussion

    Agreed! I think it would have been so much more dramatic for the announcement to come as a surprise to all.
  8. Awesome! It had everything. Trial. Braavos. And Drogon! 10!

    How would you rate episode 403?

    I gave it a 5 mainly for the silliness in front of Meereen.
  10. The one with the bare buttocks costume. I missed that. Nice find!
  11. Not quite as good as the premiere. Love the Dreadfort and scenes of Ramsey.

    How would you rate episode 401?

    10 out of 10. Fantastic casting of Pedro Pascal as the Red Viper. Really looking forward to following Oberyn’s storyline in the series. Looks like the CG has improved too with the increase in popularity of the series. Drogon is the coolest dragon since the stop-motion Vermithrax of DragonSlayer. Refreshing after the hugely disappointing portrayal of Smaug in that other epic fantasy. It will be interesting see how well Michiel Huisman does. I think the Daario recast will be more significant than the other major recast in season 4.
