    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    All the gods are there being slain. Dream! Euron is making the announcement that not only is he the only king of Westeros but that his ascenscion will make him the only god of the land as well and that he will remake the world. A god-king. Basically he thinks Bran(and perhaps Jon's)destiny is his. He's going to ride a dragon and marry Daenerys (Jon) and become a god(Bran) and king. Or so he thinks. He's self-deluded versus Stannis who has been deluded by Melisandre. They each think they're figures that they aren't.

    It's not late in the game. He's set up by ASOS when Robb gets the news that Euron has appeared at the Iron Islands to claim the crown and he physically appears in AFFC. Euron is important because he builds Bran's (and Dany's) story up. You don't actually need him there but his way of doing things is to contrast with how Bran does things. He is Bran's inverted image. Euron will try to become a god and fail versus Bran becoming a god and succeeding. It's why he's a psychopath in order to show how Bran's empathy is what leads him to succeed.

    From what I've read, Bran solving the plot, I suppose. "The bleeding star bespoke the end," he said to Aeron. "These are the last days, when the world shall be broken and remade. A new god shall be born from the graves and charnel pits." --

    Someone did bring it to my attention that Divine Leadership is how GRRM ends one of his series, Tuf Voyaging.

    I'm talking from the perspective of the nobility when I say Cersei's supporters. The smallfolk hardly cares who rules as long as they're left alone.

    Well you don't just like you don't really need Cersei or Euron. "Aegon" is there primarily to make Daenerys look bad and introduce moral ambiguity to Dany's invasion. It's meant to be wasteful. There's a quote from the Forsaken that really gets at it where the two dwarves(Aegon and Daenerys) are fighting and fucking each other while Euron and the shadow(the Others) are laughing at them. The show tries to do that with Dany v Cersei but Cersei is an actual evil queen and all it does is make Cersei's supporters look hypocritical. It's pretty much Good versus Evil at that point so much so that the show has to force a conversation between Varys and Tyrion about how Daenerys could be taking after Aerys.

    No, they don't. Was Ramsay introduced the same time as Jon? Nah. Was Euron introduced at the same time as Daenerys? Nah. Anyways, he would've been fleshed out from season 5 not 6 but the show could've introduced him way earlier if they wanted to.

    Good intentions and not being malicious. He's a bright but normal kid. Not a monster unlike Cersei. The only reason we'd root against "Aegon" is because he's not a main character.
  9. I can assure you that Bran's not going to die. He's going to outlive everyone. -------- "We live closer to the green in our bogs and crannogs, and we remember. Earth and water, soil and stone, oaks and elms and willows, they were here before us all and will still remain when we are gone." "So will you," said Meera. That made Bran sad. What if I don't want to remain when you are gone? he almost asked, but he swallowed the words unspoken. ----------------- In fact, Bran has already sacrificed himself at this point in the story. There's no meaning to Bran's death now. He's already sacrificed his own selfhood. There's no sadness to be gained from killing his body because Bran's already "dead". What you have of Bran is Bran fused to an entity that's overtaken him. He's a walking, talking human weirwood. A storage space for a multitude of greenseer souls.

    I prefer "Aegon" to Cersei. The idea of the heroes fighting each other appeals to me much more than the good guys trying to fight the evil queen.
  11. There have been several surges on every betting site that Bran Stark sits the throne at the end. His chances are around 50% now. His chances at the end of last year were around 10 %. Those are absolutely massive pushes and unheard of. A lot of the time, surges like these are people with insider info pushing it. A lot of Targaryen fans are hoping it's HBO spreading chaos(although that'd be unlikely) . Jon and Dany trail in second and third. Combined their chances are smaller than Bran's and only reach around 1/3. These betting sites also predicted that Cersei would sit the throne still by the end of season 7.
  12. Interesting. I'm even hearing rumors that Bran Stark may even be king in the end. And Sophie called the Stark trio the perfect unit.
  13. Stannis' thing isn't ambition. Stannis is based off of I, Claudius' Tiberius Caesar. And I, Claudius' Tiberius didn't want to be Emperor. It was forced on him by his mother and it made him more miserable than he already was. And well, Stannis' reasoning for why he burn a child isn't for more power but it's to save people as that is his duty as king.

    I can't see a reason why Sansa would choose to stay with Tyrion. Sansa doesn't like Lannisters and Sansa isn't attracted to Tyrion. And if you believe that GRRM has the same endgame in mind for his main five as he did int he beginning then logically, Tyrion won't end up with Sansa.

    I mean Brienne has almost just as many chapters in AFFC. They're both definitely the heart of AFFC though. Cersei's more....expendable in the books. Like Cersei's not this overarching Westerosi antagonist. She's more likely an overarching Lannister antagonist. For instance, Sansa doesn't really think about Cersei versus being this mentor in Show Sansa's life. Also Cersei doesn't ever show up in the HoTU as an antagonist for Daenerys but characters like Euron, Aegon and even Stannis do.
