    What is the role of Gendry?

    Doubtful, because the prophecies from the earlier books won't be fulfilled simply because there won't be other books to fulfill them!

    Euron's Plan after Oldtown

    Hopefully get drunk, fall off his ship and drown so we can be done with this awful cartoon evil Jack Sparrow and get back to what is important in the books, rather than this pointless repetitive filler.

    Bran could have been used a better way.

    No he isn't. He can only know what he sees in his visions. He isn't omnipotent and doesn't automatically know everything. Point in case being he didn't know Jon was legitimate.

    Which questions need to be answered in season 8?

    The horn is the legend that can bring down the Wall. There is every chance that horn is actually the dragon binder horn and that someone will use it to control a dragon to bring the Wall down. LC's have been murdered before.

    What happened to the Hill Tribes?

    I hope not. The first three books were generally great but they were a comedic diversion from the tale and they were the most unbelievable cartoon style characters from the first three. That said GRRM has since introduced fleshed out characters such as Asha, Euron and Ramsay who are all utterly ridiculous and one dimensional, so maybe they will have a big part in the story.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    So Lena Headey has said her last day was tedious and all she had to shoot was going and down the stairs. Now I know shooting often takes place out of sequence but I can't help but think she is being a bit sly about it. Maybe she meets her end either being shoved down some stairs or at the top of the stairs and dramatically tumbles down them.....

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    To me that is late in the game. If you take AFFC & ADWD as being one book (which it was) then you are talking about a major player appearing in the series at the halfway point. Which is way too late.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I agree. I think D&D have used a sledgehammer to crack a nut, but what I think they've done is clear the decks so that the final season will primarily feature most of the same antagonists as the books. A few of the minor players will be swapped around, mainly because they'll be fulfilling the roles of other characters, but generally the chess board is now set for the end game that GRRM told them about. Euron must feature in that end game somehow.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I think the complete opposite. One thing that really really really annoys me about so many shows and movies is when you have the parent(s) and their teenage brat dynamic. The parents won't tell the brat what is going on, usually with good reason, and the brat sulks and does stupid things because "they're old enough to be trusted and their parents don't understand". That's basically Arianne. She's a walking TV cliche. And Ellaria is merely a "turn the other cheek" character who is grieving. Hardly nuanced.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Which is something that could easily be achieved off page. We didn't need a Dorne POV in the books and we definitely didn't need one in the show.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I hate book Euron. Awful cartoon cut out style character. I have no idea what GRRM was thinking, and I really hope after being introduced so late in the day that he doesn't become a major player. Sooner he exits from the story the better.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    What do you make of Jon's statue seemingly being older? Do you think that was intentional or just a bad statue? If he outlives the story then it completely blows my theory away that when the Others are finally defeated and the Dragons die all magic goes out of the world and re-animated Jon drops down dead as a result!

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Most interesting thing for me was that there was no Bran. That may simply be because it would have been awkward to shoot it well because of his disability or it may have been deliberate. Especially if the promo was really subtle (unlikely!) and Bran was represented by the freezing mist.....

    GRRM: Some folk got it right.

    May have even been before that. He said someone had taken the clues and correctly figured out the ending of the series. I am pretty certain it was after AGOT, but it may have been after ACOK. It was definitely before ASOS though.

    What are you least looking forward to?

    The story is about the children. The only characters that really matter are Jon, Dany, Arya, Bran, Tyrion and Sansa. I personally enjoy Jaime's POV but he hasn't really done anything that couldn't have been explained away from other POVs or heard about via third hand information. As for the story itself, I believe the human conflicts are a plot device to weaken the realm in the face of an onslaught of the Others and to ensure that there are a load of fresh corpses that can be raised.
