    I wouldn't rule the outline out completely. George used to say he knew the broad strokes of the story since 1991 and this outline is from 93. I'm not saying Sansa isn't a main character but she certainly wasn't originally conceptualized as one. Hell, I believe George even stated that she was created as a foil to Arya and to make the Starks not seem like a perfect family. I think Sansa has a good chance of surviving but we can't use the outline for that point since the outline pretty much stresses who the main characters (at the time at least) of the saga were and that they survive. We're just noting that she was not included in that list and taking that into consideration. Even though I think it is likely that she survives, I don't think it is a guarantee

    The show will probably have some drama in the first ep but move past it pretty quick. I expect Arya to like/admire Dany because of her similarity to Queen Nymeria (George made this comparison, not me) and vice versa. I expect some drama with Sansa in the first ep because of bending the knee but considering the Wall is down, it shouldn't really matter. I expect the WW to be attacking Winterfell at either the end of the first episode or start of the second. As for the outline, it def makes it seem like those 5 will all survive. People say that it just means that they make it to the endgame and their fate is uncertain there but in context of the letter, that's not what it seems like George is saying. The sentence before he says he is willing to kill any character and then brings up those 5 as the ones who will 'survive through all 5 books'. That to me is why Sansa is still on the hot seat. A the very least, it rules out her sitting on the Iron Throne which many used to think was a possibility since George has apparently known that for over 25 years

    Pretty much. Show!Jon is a dumbass that has had more plot armor than just about any character I have ever seen. He pretty much makes dumb decision after dumb decision and then gets bailed out by Craster's wife/Melissandre/Littlefinger/Daenerys/Benjen/whatever plot contrivance saves him. He's too stupid to be King in this version of the story To be clear I don't dislike Jon at all and I think he is sitting that throne in the end. Just read my name lol. My point is you can easily make anyone look bad using the show's uneven writing

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 707?

    Gave it a 9. The good stuff was very good and the bad stuff wasn't too bad. The wight hunt will continue to be the biggest plot gap in this show because there's no real way to turn your brain off for it. You have to play a lot of mental gymnistics to make it work. Hopefully, now that they have reached the end of this season, the final season is pretty straightforward and I can finally move on from this fandom and forum

    How would you rate episode 701?

    Gave it a 9. I felt like it was one of the stronger 'filler' or 'setup' episodes in the series and the writing was much improved. Ed Sheeran kinda broke immersion for me but I didn't hate it as much as others Now that I think about it, 8 would probably be a better score as I think there weren't many standout moments outside of the opening and Rory's acting. Did like the opening scene to the Citadel. That was some brilliant editing that genuinely made me wanna puke. I do think too much time was spent there for a lack of payoff though

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 609?

    10/10 One of the best episodes of the series. Both Mereen and the North were amazing today. This was straight up cinematic. It's not TV. It's HBO

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    This is the first 10 of the season IMO. Strong in all storylines -The North is starting to pick up. Sansa is becoming the powerful Queen she was meant to be. All going to build up to the Bastard Bowl (GET HYPE) -Arya's episode this week was pretty entertaining. Reminded me of the Ember Island Players episode of ATLA -Jorah and Daenerys was done pretty well -Red Priestess made Mereen pretty good today. Helps that Dinklage and Hill are both superb actors -And Bran. Wow. The last 20 min were intense. We know that the Others were created by the Children during the war with The First Men. RIP Summer and RIP Hodor. Saddest death since the Red Wedding

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 604?

    If the show is diverging from the books, I blame Martin a lot for that. I honestly think D&D expected TWOW to be out by now as a lot of us did. So now they just have to use a few notes about the endgame and write their way there. If Martin had gotten the books out the last 10 years, this problem wouldn't exist. He signed the deal with HBO in 2008. No excuses for the glacial pace of his books. I wouldn't have adapted AFOC or ADWD directly from the books either

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 604?

    I really liked this episode. It was nice to see a Stark reunion after so long and the scene was done very well. I remember in AFFC that Sansa said she would love to see Jon again and the reunion went about as I thought it would in the books. Probably my favorite moment of the episode Also, Daenerys finally got the Dothrathi back on her side. Guess she's gonna use them to secure Mereen. I'm still not feeling Kings Landing. It feels like the storyline there is just filler till Dany finally invades
