  1. I'm going with it's a reference to Rhaegar and Lyanna mostly. I mean Jon and Dany can be called as much the Dragon and the Dragon than the Dragon and the Wolf.
  2. I guess the dragon pit scene will be 40 minutes or so of characters taking digs at one another.....
  3. I've never complained about the supposed teleportation since a show is supposed to be entertaining foremost, but that was pretty ridiculous and hard to ignore.

    Jon Snow's 12 companions

    Yeah and technically he had a dog (the hound) and a horse at the end. We know that the show has made Jon into a Jesus symbol for the show. The betrayal in front of the cross. Took a dagger in the heart for his people, the resurrection etc....
  5. The show has made it a point to state that Dany is a conqueror not a ruler through Daario and then have Sansa state that Jon is good at ruling. In the end all that matters is what the show thinks not us. I also don't see Jon dying considering Alliser Thorne's last words about him fighting these battles forever. Also seriously doubt that GRMM went from both characters surviving in his original outline to both dying like so many seem to think. The only reason I even think Dany might die in childbirth is because the author loves history repeating itself. And no there won't be a breaking of the wheel, there will no happily ever after.

    Will R+L=J Deliver?

    I think the show is placing so much emphasis and so late into the show as a justification for Jon eventually sitting the Iron Throne. They are placing way more emphasis on his heritage than even the prophecy aspect to it.

    Who inspired Rhaegar?

    It's heavily implied that he read the prophecy through one of the many books/scrolls he read as a youth. The one that would contain information where the prince that was promised would be born out of Aerys' lineage.

    Can we officially call Rhaegar a jerk now?

    Considering Rhaegar pretty much states that he needs a third child right in front of his bed ridden wife, makes one wonder if Elia was completely on board with the prophecy.
  9. She won't even bother. By Season 8 she'll be completely in love with Jon, she'll be the one bending her knee in the end.

    Jon will never be king.

    According to the show he probably will be, after all according to them he's a good ruler and Dany is a bad one. See Sansa and Daario's quotes. lol

    Wouldn't at all be shocked if Elia and Rhaegar both agreed to the annulment or the show explains it that way. One of the prices of arranged marriages, it's not really true love in the end.

    [Spoilers] EP705 Discussion

    They are embellishing for plot purposes. I also expect him to have gone the polygamy route in the Books.

    I think the scroll...

    This is where I hope Sansa is the one manipulating LF and letting him think she's setting him up.

    Jon should bend his knees.

    True, but unlike in the watch, it's quite possible the other starks would rally behind Jon's decision even if not happy about it. Of course, we all know that Bran would interject with what he knows and that would change the entire dynamics.

    Jon should bend his knees.

    The romance will be smoothing that over along with Jon's Targaryen claim.
