  1. Correction - Arya was a fan of Visenya, the elder of Aegon the Conquerers sisters. Visenya was a great warrior and dragonrider. Arya was NOT a fan of Viserys, Daenerys' halfwitted older brother. Arya would have despised him, had they ever met, and very well may have killed him.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    Yes, there are consequences. That doesnt mean Arya will necessarily be killed off by faceless men in books. Thats not where that story is heading anyway imo.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I think the show is definitely leaning toward a happy ending. It will be far more 'sweet' than 'bitter'. It's all fan service now and...sadly, even for a story such as GoT, the vast majority of fans DO want the fairytale ending (ie. Jon and Dany rule together as King and Queen, Tyrion's as Hand; Arya, Sansa and Bran all survive and in positions suitable for their arcs, fan faves like Davis, Hound and Bronn to survive). It may not go exactly like that, but I'm expecting similar. I think even Martin's ending (if he ever finishes the books) is going to be more happy than people expect. It isn't going to be a bloodbath where the Others wipe out most of Westeros and most of our favourite characters except a few.

    HBO Exec on Prequels, Final Season

    You're joking right? 95% of the movies on Netflix are utter garbage. Netflix, Stan and most other streaming services are usually much better for tv series than they are for movies.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    I'm curious of your reasoning for #3. To me it seems the opposite. D&D are more likely to have Arya killed by the Faceless Men (or be already dead with the Waif wearing her face) IMO. They would do it for pure shock value regardless of what terrible writing it would be. GRRM however has devoted a huge amount of development into Arya and I think it unlikely that it is all just smoke and mirrors (ie Faceless Men just using her identity) for some death cult. Arya as a character has SO much potential and there is many hints in the book she is headed toward some type of leadership role (no, not a traditional one like Lady or Queen or military commander, but one of her own making, either as some kind of champion of the common people or leading a "pack"). D&D have essentially simplified Arya into a badass killer assassin/warrior and not focused on any of her other traits, but the real Arya in Martin's story is extremely complex and can be taken so many different directions. I think it HIGHLY unlikely he intended to kill Arya off until the final act, if at all.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    But we already know the "spinoffs" are all going to be prequels and not contain any of the characters from the GoT series, so whether the main characters live or die will have no impact on the spinoffs. All of them are set BEFORE the events of the series, not after.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Dialogue cringeworthy and nonsensical as it has been all season. So, the whole premise of Sansa getting on to LF is he basically tells her the real reason Arya could have for killing Sansa is that she wants to be Lady of Winterfell which Sansa knows is last thing Arya wants. Fine. Then why the hell do they have Sansa ask Arya "Does that bother you?" at end when Arya says Sansa is Lady of Winterfell. That just makes Sansa seem stupid asking a question she by definition as explained earlier in episode, already knows the answer to. The reply the writers hd Arya give "I knew Id never be as good a Lady as you so I had to be something else" essentially implies the only reason Arya took a different path than Lady is because Sansa was just too good at it for Arya to compete, which is just stupid. Aryas whole arc is based on identity and her knowing who she is and a part of that is her never wanting to become a Lady. Sansa had nothing to do with it. Wouldnt have mattered if Sansa died at start of Season 1 leaving Arya as eldest female Stark, Arya would still have never wanted to be Lady of Winterfell. These show writers grrr
  8. I gave it a generous 7, mostly for the Winterfell scenes (which were too short) and Tyrion. All of the episode was predictable and much of it boring, but the acting and CGI were solid. Im still not a fan of Kits acting though.
  9. I think that is a bit harsh. Maisie and Sophie so far havent shown near as much chemistry onscreen as they have in interviews together, vines, etc, but I wouldn't say they have zero chemistry. I definitely disagree their conversations at WF have been worst examples of acting in whole show. Both have portrayed their characters very well. Maisie is playing Arya very differently this season (see thread "Arya Stark" I created today), but Im 99% sure that is a writing/dorecting choice, not an acting one. Whereas Maisie was always very expressive in her acting in seasons 1-6, this year she has played Arya as a cold, calculating, emotionless being who even states expressions of anger or resentment matter-of-factly rather than displaying emotion. Arya's soul and personality seemed to have been sucked out of the character which had a big impact on the scenes with Sansa/Sophie. Again though, I am certain Maisie is playing Arya as intended and the huge change in her delivery of the character is in line with where the showrunners are taking her character. Something is definitely up.

    There is something very different about Arya's character this season and in Maisie's acting. I cant pinpoint the reason for it. Arya had always been a strong minded individual who wears her heart on her sleeve. She always spoke her mind directly when something was bothering her and she was very expressive. Maisies acting was too. She was brilliant. In season 7, Arya is almost a different person and Maisie is definitely playing her more controlled and emotionless, like she has lost touch with most of her humanity. Even in the conversations with Sansa this season, Maisie's delivery has been more in line with the Waif than that of Season 1-6 Arya. I also believe this is by design and not just an acting choice from Maisie. I see only 3 reasons for this: 1. The writers are taking Arya down an even darker path towards full blown psychopath and the change in delivery of the character is to illustrate that descent. 2. Arya is dead and the Waif is wearing her face. I would absolutely loathe for this to be true but I am genuinely fearful the show may go that way. 3. Arya truly did become No One at end of season 6 and is just playing the part of the old Arya Stark, therefore the true emotion of the real Arya isnt there.

    Lol she wasn't threatening to kill Sansa at all. She wanted to scare Sansa I think, but she was letting her know she is on her side. Also, even if it was a genuine threat, the reason was not so Arya could wear nice things lol

    CrypticWeirdwood's post was from the fan theory that Tyrion is actually the son of Mad King Aerys and Joanna Lannister so is also a secret Targ. If that is true, then Tyrion would have killed Jaime's father (Tywin) and Jaime would have killed Tyrions (Aerys). There are also theories that it is actually Jaime and Cersei who are actually the Targaryens and not Tyrion. Personally, I believe both of these theories are false.

    That wasn't missed. Arya never said or even hinted that she thought Sansa wanted her family being hurt or any harm coming to them. It was the lust in Sansa that Arya saw in the room when the Lords were talking about her being Queen in the North that prompted their private conversation in the first place. A significant part of Sansa wanted that. She wasn't wishing any harm on her family or on Jon, but Arya I think saw that Sansa was wishing they had named her QitN instead of Jon KiTN. The conversation wasn't about the family being hurt. It was about loyalty..and from what Arya saw in Sansa, she had reasons for some doubt there. I don't think Arya handled it the right way though and her comment about chopping heads off was stupid. BookArya would not ev en have suggested that. I am so tired of the writers making character A momentarily stupid in order for character B to appear smart. They seem completely incapable of making Character A appear smart, but character B just even more on point in a specific situation.

    Sansa didn't teach Arya anything. She made a point that was not without merit, yet Arya's concerns were also genuine and not without merit. Either way, D&D have pretty much ruined both Sansa and Arya as characters with their writing and the horrendous plot lines they've given to them. Both the characters and the actresses deserve much better material.
