    Season 8 Predictions?

    The Night King, having never been south of The Wall, will fly past King's Landing and end up in Dorne, where he abandons that whole Winter thing in favor of laying out on the beach and soaking up the rays. With all those undirected zombies stumbling about, Jon and Daenerys will develop the sport of wight-hunting on dragons. Sam will find the secret of incubating and hatching dragon eggs without necessity of human sacrifice, thus enabling them to establish a world-renowned stable of dragons for the hunt. The nobility will beggar themselves paying for dragon stud fees, throwing sand in the financial bearings of the Wheel. Varys, foreseeing that the countryside will run out of wights and the nobles will go back to hunting peasants again, persuades the Night King to go into the resurrection business. He refuses to leave the beach, so Varys hires the Ironborn to ship the dead on ice, both of which there is a never-ending supply that everyone wants to get rid of. Win-Win-Win-Win.

    PhD research: Doran Martell and you

    A man who, though weary and drawn by chronic illness, is sharp enough to not end up gutted in his chair by his libertine brother's crazy wife.

    [Book Spoilers] EP508 Discussion

    Arya wargs the cat in the rafters to catch the Kindly Man when she's blind. Bran wargs Hodor (shades of Maaaster-Blaster). Jon, being somewhat dimmer about these things than a true Stark, doesn't quite get his link with Ghost dialed in, but we all know it's just because he's so busy busy busy in his head.

    Although they're imprinted on their mama, Danaerys's dragons are disobedient. At least three Stark children are wargs. Jon's been holed, Bran can't walk but will fly, and Arya's all cat and wolf. The dragon has three heads...

    Hodor? Hodor Hodor Hodor trope.

    You don't get it. Ramsay enjoys setting them up that way. He's somewhere close by, chomping on a sausage and smiling.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    Well done for the HBO story. Nice touches; Varys decides to take that cruise after all "People coming. You can shit later, there's people coming." Brienne vs Sandor brawl. She starts off all knightly and by the end she's bit off his ear and is bashing him over and over with a rock. He grabs her sword with both hands. She slugs him in the balls; he kicks her in the crotch. Tough customers. The beginning of a beautiful friendship. "Valar Morghulis." Complete confidence. thumbs down: Bloodraven. The skeletons from Jason and the Argonauts three decades ago were better. Grenades? Bayaz with a long beard?

    How would you rate episode 409?

    The traveling shot of the castle yard fighting was very good. "With me now. Now with me." Chekov's Mammoth.
