    How will they react to what happened?

    Duplicate of another thread - I'm right so why not spread the truth) My take is that Jon will confront Dany about being mean. Dany will say you (Jon) are mean and a threat to me. Dany will tell Drogon to kill Jon. Drogon will refuse because Jon is Tagaryan. Jon will free Drogon and Drogon will fly away to find himself in Europe. Dany will sick Grey Worm on Jon. Jon will kill Grey Worm. Danys Dothraki and Unsullied will abandon because Dany is powerless and a weak Khal is not to be followed. Dany will lose her shit and ask Jon to kill her. Jon will ghost her and leave and Dany will sit atop the iron stump alone and powerless. Jon will go North to be Jon Stark. Arya will kill Dany. BUT a faceless man will kill Arya because she broke their rules and killed a bunch of people using their techniques. Sansa will rule in the North and Tyrion will rule the West and work together to make it through the winter.. Sansa is pretty so the showmakers must make her smart and competent, even though book Sansa is pants on head retarded through and through. A Sansa victory end game is probably gonna happen so I might as well retch now over it. Sigh. The last shot will be Jon Snow in the North. And a dragon egg found somewhere being gifted to a messanger to find the last Targaryan to start the nightmare anew

    Unpopular opinion

    I disagree. They did create a wonderful show and kept it as such largely through 5-6 seasons (insert snark here as to where exactly it went off the rails). The problem here is that D&D did what all artists do once they are successful for so long, they attribute all the success to their own selves and not the platform over which they preside. For example, Charlie Sheen on Two & A Half Men, McCaulay Culkin on Home Alone, Megyn Kelly on Fox News. D&D have said that they wanted to end the show so they can move on to other more important adventures or that they were bored with it. I have no problem with people getting bored. But they could have EASILY handed the reigns over to someone like David Fincher & Dennis Villeneuve who would have JUMPED at the opportunity to finish the story "sans-ego" or not rushed. D&D think they can turn Star Wars around and make it great again. Maybe they will improve on the Last Jedi but that is a pretty low bar. But Game of Thrones is a global phenomenon that in my opinion dwarfs Star Wars. Sure everybody remembers the original trilogy and they certainly did change the world. But Game of Thrones is a TV zeitgeist of the first order which routinely gets regular superbowl sized audiences on HBO and that's without counting the galactic sized pirated video viewership that is not recorded. I guess my point is that D&D getting bored, is like Sir Edmund Hillary after climbing mount Everest saying he was bored with climbing and was going to move on and start a local climbing gym business. You are the creative directors of the biggest TV epic in human history with the entire world waiting on your product with baited breath every weekend, and you are BORED with it???? What an epic wasted opportunity for something as petty as egos.

    [Spoilers] EP701

    I thought the best scenes were: (1) Jim Broadbent as the Maester and his dialogue with Sam. Total pro actor and the dog speach was compelling. (2) Hound, Thoros and Berric scene in its entirety. All three great actors, and I really find Berric's self doubt about resurrection believeable and endearing. If the hound becomes the true Warrior of Light of the books cannon, which I believe, it will be IMHO one of the most interesting character arcs in all of storytelling Ive ever seen or read. I suspect Sansa will have to be sacrificed to make this happen, which i doubt because she is so well loved in the fandom. Great episode otherwise!

    Why green? Regardless, I'm pretty sure with Queen Cersei, Qyburn will be given a much wider berth to perform dark magic / necromancy. The color white probably signifies some Great Other power source. I can't imagine who else would be this queen in Damphair's vision????

    Certainly a more credible oracle than some of the wild speculations on this forum. Cersei will be Euron's evil queen. I have no problem throwing down that marker here and now.

    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    Well, it appears the white queen in the vision is definitely Cersei. Season 6 finale from GOT pretty much guaranteed it. Can't wait to see how the ironborn apologists reconcile this with their denialist ideology. I'm actually pretty interested in what you guys can come up with.

    OK. Azor Azai is not a "Lawful Good" character. We get that. But he is a sacrificial, non-selfish person either. He / she will sacrifice himself to save the world. Anyone who thinks Azor-Azai, Dany, Jon, Tyrion is walking away from the end of these books is just plain not paying attention. But at a minimum he's not a sadistic a-hole idiot like Victarion. Victarion is not Azor Ahai. Stop being contrarian people. Its just not a reasonable thinking man's position.

    Most serious and credible professional reviewers of these books knew exactly what the rusted iron door implied. Ironborn fanboi's and apologists can argue plausible deniability here, but that's on them, not me or GRRM. I guess that's what I like about GRRM, he trusts in the intelligence of the reader. For instance, in AFFC a now alcoholic Cersei says she had the serving girl flogged for shrinking her clothes in the wash because they did not fit her anymore. GRRM did not put an asterisk on that sentence and explicitly say to the reader "Cersei is getting fat". Your logic above would indeed hold: it IS possible that the serving girl did indeed shrink her clothes, because it was never disproven. But the story works so much better when you realize what GRRM did here in just one sentence: Cersei is so egocentric and power mad, that she would willingly inflict pain and misery on an innocent serving girl to reinforce her own self-deception and delusion about herself getting fat. In this "Euron-is-just -misunderstood/ he-a-good-boy/he-dindu-nuffin" thread's example, the story works so much better when you accept that Euron is a diabolically cruel and evil man, and ever has been. Trust in GRRM here people. It just works better with everything that's been written and will be released in Winds of Winter. Life's too short to paddle so strenuously upstream. Just let it go. Euron is a bad, bad man. Let is go....

    I guess we'll just agree to disagree here. I don't believe your premise that there is no such thing as evil, and that all people are born good and made bad by externalities. Current events with ISIS are a great salient example: Thousands of pampered and wealthy Muslims have left happy families in the West and gone through considerable travel difficulties / efforts to partake in sadistic murders of unarmed civilians and gang rapes of girls, many under the age of 10. GRRM has no qualms whatsoever about making villains evil, and I cant think of a greater evil than the rape of children. Don't be so naive about Victarion apologists either. There are fanboi's here who actually think he is Azor Ahai. Really. I'm serious.

    The woman in white is not Dany. No way no how. I'm no Dany fan, but no way she's going to be complicit in Euron's crimes. She'll use him to cross the ocean, but even that would be too much for her. Sean T Collins / Stefan Sasse over at boiledleather.com thought the white woman could be the same one who seduced the original Night King. My thoughts are that it could also be Melissandre, somehow corrupted. I'd wager on the female Other, but since the TV show hasn't made a single mention of it, the person can't be that important. Maybe the Great Other is a woman, and that's what it signifies.

    Just curious. I'm not moralizing and actually really am interested in your truthful answer. What exactly pushed you over the edge, here? You thought he was awesome before when you knew he was: (a) Raping his younger brothers as children (b) Raping his sister in law, resulting in Victarion killing her in shame (c) Mutilating his crew (d) Raping the children of House Hewitt in front of their parents (e) Killing thousands of civilians the world over (f) Dismembering Baelor Blacktyde for not bending the knee What pushed you over the edge from your previous position? Mutilating Pyatt Pree? Cutting out Falia's tongue? Being mean to poor ol' Aeron? What was the bridge too far here? I really, really, really want to know.

    You people are unwell. He killed his brothers when they were babies. He rapes, tortures and kills at will, and enjoys it. He molests children. He is the ULTIMATE psychopath and a very, very, very, terrible person and any red-blooded reader of the books knows it. I've read enough of this thread to call BS on all the Victarion is awesome, Euron is awesome, my favorite character, etc. etc. Stop it. I know Sinnie is just troll baiting being his first post and all but this thread is going off the rails. These are very bad people who routinely do bad things, and everyone including GRRM admits it. Stop making excuses for it.

    Clearly House Umber will be bringing fake Arya to Ramsey. Perfect storyline timing and will be the reason to draw Jon / Sansa back to retake Winterfell as well as the Manderly betrayal. Its not Rickon. No way. Fake Arya. It is known.
