    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Nothing other than it being part of the final battle sequence in KL. Probably after the NK burns down the city

    Cersei versus Daenerys

    Pretty much. Thought Season 7 did a pretty good job describing the differences between the two. If Cersei had dragons she would have burned KL to a crisp because as she said: I don't care about checking my worst impulses. I don't care about making the world a better place. And that effectively is the difference between the two. They are both very similar but one tries to check her worst impulses and wants to make the world a better place while the other does not care about the world and indulges her worst impulses because it makes her feel good.

    Why do the smallfolk support Cersei?

    Maybe they don’t want to get roasted by a dragon. Cersei definatley had some very effective PR. Or maybe they just like parades of highborns brought to heel

    I don’t think this is that predictible. when the pictures of winterfell burning first came out most people reacted super surprised as they did when they found our Cersei was going to attack North also, the motivation of the white walkers is a big question mark still.

    Interesting stuff. If this is true, than the season is certainly going to pack a whallop with the living losing in the North and the destruction of WF and the dead burning down KL.

    why is Dany reuniting with Drogo a thing? Jon said there is nothing when you die. There is no afterlife in this world.

    Hmm. I completley disagree. Ruthless for sure. cold and very selfish? Not really.

    Think it depends on how you define tyrant. The first definition in merriam webster is “an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution.” By that definition she is clearly a tyrant. The second definition is “a ruler who exercises absolute power oppressively or brutally.” Accorording to that definition I think its more debatable. She has certainly excercised her absolute power brutally. So you could say yes she would be a tyrant there. But this is at the end of the day a semantic question. Not sure if its particularly relevent nor if we label her a tyrant does it mean she is going to be the final antagonist or burn down KL in an act of villainy.

    Very possible. Both of them have very different relationships to violence. Jon tends to abhor it. Dany seems to embrace it. Any reason to believe her? She speaks as if she knows but not really sure. Both her and Enty23 seem to have the same sources and are suggesting the great Drogon vs Vicerion Dany vs Nk battle over KL happens in episode 6. Any reason to believe this guy? Not sure how I feel about this.... i think going for vengeance is a step back for the Hound’s character
  10. Great point... hubris....

    What is important to the story is a function of what the writers make important to the story. In the tv show the wolves are not that important and Grey Worm and Gilly are more important. And it seems a pretty justified writing choice

    The Queen of Ashes foreshadowing

    You forgot to mention that the the Army of the Dead did not break down the wall. It was a dragon that did it. A massive army with a dragon is what the audience has been cheering for the entire time. But the veil was pulled off when the NK burned down the wall with Viserion and the audience came face to face with the horror of what it has actually been cheering for.

    The Queen of Ashes foreshadowing

    Nice analysis of the various screen transitions. King’s Landing is definetly going to be burned down and it will definetly be because of Dany’s dragons. At this point we know the final battle will be in KL and Dany’s dragons will be on both sides of the battle since the NK has Vicerion so its all but inevitable dragonfire will lay waste to the capital. The only real question is how exactly it all unfolds and what the thematic meaning of it is. But an ending where Daenerys rules over a broken kingdom she helped burn to the ground has a lot of potential to be a good one.

    God forgive they give more screen time to two people of color whose lives are a testament to the horrible violence of the world, whose new found freedom is a living example of the good Daenerys has brought and who love is a testament to overcoming and finding the beatiful in the world over a cgi animal

    I don’t think she is mad.... or at least not any more made than almost every other politician on the show who is mad for power
