  1. Thanks for the posts keeping us up-to-date! I found this piece published today with photos as well. 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Episode 2 Photos Tease Big Returns Posted April 28, 2016 by Gina Carbone Bran Stark, Meera Reed, and the Greyjoys are coming "Home" in "Game of Thrones" Season 6, Episode 2. HBO released six photos for the second episode of the 2016 season, including the one above, and you can check the rest out below. We'll be following a few storylines from the premiere -- in Meereen, King's Landing, Winterfell, Braavos, and at the Wall -- while adding storylines North of the Wall and at the Iron Islands. Those are stories we haven't checked in on since Season 4, so it'll be interesting to see everyone again. Here's the official synopsis for "Home," which airs Sunday, May 1 at 9 p.m.: "Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) trains with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). In King's Landing, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) advises Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman). Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) demands good news, but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night's Watch stands behind Thorne (Owen Teale). Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) entertains other proposals." Here are the "Home" photos of Bran Stark, Yara and Balon Greyjoy, Varys and Missandei, Alliser Thorne, and Dolorous Edd. (That's Meera Reed at top) And here's another look at the promo for "Home": Sansa knows that Arya is alive! Now she knows Arya, Bran, and Rickon are all alive out there, or were alive relatively recently. In case you want to look ahead, here's HBO's synopsis for May 8's Episode 3, "Oathbreaker": "Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) meets her future. Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). Arya (Maisie Williams) trains to be No One. Varys (Conleth Hill) finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift." Spoiler/speculation fans, are you thinking what we're thinking on Bran meeting the past? Is Episode 3 when we head to the Tower of Joy for R+L = J? And what about the "M" part of that theory? The dragon has three heads, so are they D + J + M? Or T, instead of M? Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook. http://www.moviefone.com/2016/04/28/game-of-thrones-season-6-episode-2-photos-meera-bran-greyjoy/ v I wonder if Bran will return to WF via the heart tree and the living magic in the Wall to assess that the Boltons have taken over Bran’s domain – Bran is the Stark in WF, figuratively and literally. v It sounds like Bran visits present action and episode 3 is when Bran visits the past. v I speculate that Jon Snow’s warg and Ghost will join Bran for these dreamscape flashbacks. It is important for Jon to learn the truth of his birth.

    BRAN’S GROWING POWERS AFTER his FINAL POV in ADwD

    I have been developing an essay exploring possible origins of the Others and how the greenseers may figure in the return of these creatures of ice. Here is a small part of my work in progress, and I appreciate any feedback or guidance on the ideas I present: Anticipating the extinction of their race, the singers take action to protect the thousand thousand years of accumulated knowledge that has become part of their sacred trees, their godhood. To the singers, knowledge and its pursuit is the supreme power for their race and other races as well. WISDOM is the metaphoric nameless, faceless old gods the singers worship. However, since misinformed men who have no appreciation for knowledge or the pursuit of such cut down, destroy and/or discard the houses of knowledge sacred to the children, the singers look to the magic of ice as a means of safely preserving their centuries of arduous, tedious, and combined efforts. As part of the Pact, the singers endow select representatives with magic powers that allow them to access the knowledge in order to share it with wider audiences to better humanity. In turn, those appointed with responsibility promise to safeguard the singers and their lands from further encroachment by their enemies. The exact terms of the Pact between the singers and the First Men 10,000 years past are not entirely known, other than the distribution of lands between the two warring parties endeavoring to make peace. It is likely that the singers bargained with gifts of powerful magic which they bestowed conditionally upon those First Men most deserving of executing these blessings responsibly without abusing them. The mastery and effective use of warging, skinchanging, and greendreams qualified members of families the eventual attainment of greensight and the role of becoming custodians of the vast enriching knowledge stored in the trees and earth. Those men who commanded magic irresponsibly subsequently lost favor with those overseeing the maintenance of the powers; hence, the singers rightfully and understandably revoked the gifts under the preset terms of the Pact. Houses Stark, Reed, and Mormont proved themselves worthy in managing the gifts, so in return, these special Houses became allies of the singers serving as their protectors and discouraged encroachment upon those lands designated for the singers and the singers alone. In spite of the Pact, the singers wanted to guarantee the preservation of their vast stores of wisdom, and they may have found a way to secure a portion of their learning in caves of ice far from the grasp of men who could not be trusted with these potentially dangerous spells. Among these enchantments are animating the dead of any species, controlling the nature and aggression of the cold, and deploying other assorted charms of transformation, glamors, and bewitchments. Safeguarding these bountiful treasures held in ice are appointed singers and their greenseers. However, the singers did not account for another humanoid race equally tempted by the possibilities of extending their line to avoid sure extinction. The possibilities of raising the dead and advancing a dangerous cold would allow these Others to expand, grow, and prosper. The White Walkers acquire the magic by nefarious means, and their hearts of ice forbid them from feeling emotions innate to men and singers. Consequently, with the intelligence of spells and histories, the WW became experts on the shortcomings of the races, and the realms of men proved the weakest and the easiest to target. Assessing the juvenility of men, yet observing how men covet power, land, wealth., violence, sex, and more, the White Walkers articulated a plan to overtake these realms of men, collectively an undeserving lot who permitted their selfish desires to dictate their thoughts and actions. Men’s innate compunction for evil, their inhumanity to one another, and their contentment to manipulate or to be manipulated, make them ideal puppets to serve under the White Walkers who will take men’s wits and their voices and pull their strings to make cold corpses perform the dance of dead men.

    [Spoilers] EP601

    Regarding Thorne, if my speculations from 2012 have been right, Thorne's speech is akin to that of Brutus' speech after the death of Caesar. Thorne does not "inspire" with emotions - he merely gives the men his reasons for killing Snow. It will be Tormund Giantsbane who will give the speech of Marc Antony's ilk - the one that stirs men's blood to mutiny and rage - and Tormund will "Cry Havoc - and let slip the dogs [direwolves] of war!" I bet we hear that oration in Episode 2 or 3,

    Is Jon's blood a dragon shape?

    You know, Davos was acting weird. He did not help with the lifting of Jon's corpse. Then he studied the remaining smudged blood - which streaked as the brothers lifted JS.

    Is Jon's blood a dragon shape?

    Truthfully, the blood spatter resembled Ghost as he was pawing at the door while howling for his dead master. This transitions from howling Ghost at the close of Mother's Mercy. Just my opinion?

    BRAN’S GROWING POWERS AFTER his FINAL POV in ADwD

    EXCELLENT FORENSIC ANALYSIS. You make relevant points based upon Martin’s text, and I sing your praises. I will mention several key observations among the many you share: v Bran the truth seeker conflicts with Bran the “blind”. While Bran desires to learn the truth behind Jojen’s greendreams and his own awakening powers, Bran also fears learning something that he does not fully understand. v Conveniently, Maester Luwin’s misinformation gives Bran a sort of peace; however, Bran quickly doubts his maester’s command of the unexplainable magic Bran later cannot deny. v In this way, Martin’s WINDOW MYTHOLOGY holds true. At first, Bran’s view of events is narrow, especially when readers compare the early Bran to the later Bran in ADwD. The assertion that Jojen knows the day he will die because of his greendreams that have allowed him to see this day in advance is ON POINT! CONGRATULATIONS! I did not fully realize this fact until you explained it so eloquently. v Jojen seeks the 3EC for HIMSELF as well as for Bran. Jojen hopes the wizard will be able to assist him in circumventing his fate revealed in his dreams that do not lie. That Howland Reed sends forth his only son to meet with certain death in Jojen’s efforts to free the winged wolf, or Fallen Bran, is on par with elements of the Catholic Mass and Biblical influences. v The Lord God sends his only son Jesus Christ to meet with certain death in order to free Fallen Man from original sin. Hodor’s innate ability to call off the angry direwolves hints at the gentle giant’s own “wargish” connections with the wolves, especially with Bran and Summer. v The breakdown of Martin’s text is executed so well that many insinuations became clear, among them Hodor’s relationship with the Starks in general and the kiddoes specifically. v Could Hodor also have the blood of the First Men flowing in his veins? Perhaps Stark blood? v If this is the case, then Hodor as a vessel for Bran when he skinchanges makes a perfect sense. Hodor may serve a higher purpose in this way, just as Jojen does. Bran as a truth seeker who prefers to remain blind when the truth applies to him personally is paradoxical. However, in this way, Martin demonstrates Bran’s character growth over the span of the novels as Bran bravely faces the truth and resigns himself to his role as a greenseer, even if it means marrying a tree.
  7. OMG - I could bust a gut with you, lady! Let's collaborate on a novel wherein Drogon seduces Sansa Stark - I saw a thread about who a perfect mate or husband would be for the Lady of Winterfell. If TRex and raptors are good bed fellows, why not a dragon? A real crotch rocket when she mounts him bareback - WOMEN ON TOP INDEED!
  8. THANKS! i AM GETTING THAT TITLE FOR A MOTHER'S DAY PRESENT FOR MY DEAR MUM WHO LOVES HISTORICAL ROMANCE NOVELS! Did you like it? Mum is not into erotica or S&M- she likes the romance - and the Jurassic Period fits the bill, as long as the hot male on the cover is gentle and sensitive.
  9. There were factual errors in that article - I believe it was fan written, yes? Taking the elements of a hero's journey is one avenue of writing analytical scholarship. You can take the same premises and apply them to Arya/Sansa/Jon/Daenerys/Theon. I wrote an essay applying characteristics of a tragedy, in the Elizabethan and Aristotle sense, and applied them to the characters from Martin's novels. It is a way to attempt to organize Martin's character development - one of many, many, many ways to break down and analyze literature.
  10. Like Leechy says, Martin spins things his own way - mixing up the world mythologies like he is making a scratch cake - lots of nuts, chocolate chips, sugar, and other yummy ingredients. He then bakes it in his Martin Mind-Oven and serves his readers a taste of brilliance - sweet and savory,
  11. What about this? "And it looks like we are going to see a lot of Bran in Season 6: the young Isaac Hempstead Wright offers these tantalizing glimpses during his PR rounds: “I can’t say a lot, but I am back this season and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions.” In another interview Hempstead hints at Bran taking on the role of “kingmaker,” to “expect lots of magic,” and “extraordinary enabling abilities” that could cause an “earthquake” in Westeros. What kind of earthquake? Hempstead doesn’t say" Maybe the crypt vaults will burst open?
  12. Thankfully, I missed those mag articles. How trite! I was hoping the after show would be more sophisticated than Talking Dead. You are right it is juvenile, The way they do the instant replays in slow motion of the zombies who died in the episodes. Seeing it once was enough for me - but I am not an active watcher, I hate it! My son has made me watch it when he comes over on Sundays - not my cup of tea. No - I like Dance Moms and Counting On with the married Duggar girls. TeeHee.
  13. One of my favorite movies - old time special effects - is Jason and the Argonauts. When Jason scatters the dragon's teeth, dead worriers rise from the earth as skeletons - and they do battle. That is kind of what I would like to see with the dead Starks - not just toe and finger wiggling!
