  1. You still thinking she recognizes Jon’s claim? We spoke about that a while ago. Still feels like the most logical next step for her

    What will be the final WTF moment?

    Makes no narrative sense

    That is a somewhat simplistic view of things. Cersei is an evil queen. So? Until she decides to turn her back on the threat of the white walkers, there is nothing she has done that would make a member of the small folk think it would be worth dying to get rid of this person in exchange for that other person. Cersei may be evil, but not sure she is so evil that it warrants the greater evil that is war. And it is that greater evil - war - that ultimstley paves the way for the walkers. Without Dany coming to Westeros and waging her war against Cersei, the NK does not get through that wall.

    He seems to be a pawn of monsters, particularly if he is not Aegon Targaryen Martell as seems all but likely.

    What makes Aegon a hero? He is not a point of view character and he is more pawn than player.

    Would they? Rogar and Alicent were certain the faith was going to revolt at J&A’s marriage and they did not. Not sure the character has fullfilled her story. She had a great story in season 6 and another good one in season 7. And I am sure her story in 8 will also be good.

    I understand that is your opinion and respect it. But the sense I get from reading reviews and just overall discussion of the show is that Cersei is actually seen as one of the shows strengths due to the actresss and character arc. Also, this idea that she would have a problem because of burning the sept I don’t think is really supported by the source material. Maegor burns down the sept in his day and no one in KL does anything or rises up in revolt. The people of Kl kill the dragons during the dance and then a year later are cheering Rhaena Targaryen as she flies over the city with her dragons. Revolts seem fundamentally random and the small folk completley fickle in both show and books.

    I agree and I don’t. I think the Dornish plot was not good. But it did not need Aegon for it to be good. Personally the ending to the Dornish plot on the show I thought was good. Cersei eliminating Dorne and taking her revenge on Ellaria and the whole plot being about the folly of vengeance. I think the problem was just execution. The Sand Snakes sucked. The fight scene in the water gardnes was abysmal. And the whole structure of the plot in Season 5 was just seriously flawed.

    Biggest mistake the show ever made was introducing so many new Dornish characters in Season 5

    According to tv tropes one of the more common bittersweet endings is just to have a victory that is not final. So the Others will rise again. For what that is worth. But I think people are reading way too much into that teaser.

    I don’t think this is true at all. According to Watchers on the Wall, WF will fall which means the walkers win that battle. This article assumes for some reason that the living win at WF when that does not seem to be the case if we can believe WOTW. Friki and Javi have also said many times they think the living lose at WF. So it may be the greatest battle in tv history and last an hour, but does not seem like it will be decisive.

    Does anyone know if there have been any good Bran will end up as the ruler theories over the years? With all the major bookies giving it the best odds of happening of any other outcome feels like now is the time to reexamine those

    I think she can be killed. I don’t think the person that will kill her will be her nephew/ lover given the home thread through her story. Although it would be ironic i suppose
