    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Well, D&D had Tyrion fail pretty spectacularly in Season 7 by trying to do the noble thing and eschew fear based politics. Would make sense for him to respond to those failures by deciding he needed to be more like his old man.

    Also interesting that Javi calls Jon King multiple times. But overall, i think Tyrion’s crime being keeping the population in the city even though they end up burning is interesting. Would make sense if his failures in season 7 lead him to decide he needs to be much more ruthless and that decision cements a tragic arc for his character.

    This is such a flawed reading I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are trolling.

    Thats a very extreme interpretation of that scene. That is the first time these people are wrestling with the fact that the armistace effort is going to be a failure. There is a lot of emotion one has to process when you are in the crucible like that. It strikes me as unreasonably critical to criticise someone for taking the full magnitude of a shitty situation and trying to process it all. Especially when the woman lost her dragon both to save the man she is talking to and so that the whole effort would be a success. She didn’t need to make a decision there.

    Sounds like she feels she would be in a real pickle without the armistace as she knows the threat beyond the wall is real now and can’t ignore it but she knows doing so means handing Westeros to Cersei.

    You are assuming Cersei dies soon in the books which who knows

    I think it all comes back to the show runners wanting to wrap this up in 7-8 seasons. Since the first season D&D said they saw this as a 70 hour movie. If they had adapted YG then it becomes impossible to really stick to that.

    No logical reason is an extreme statement. Dany wants to break the wheel. What helped cause the wars we see in Westeros? Kings serving as capricious judges of their nobles. Aerys conducting a farce of a trial with Brandon and Rickard Stark. Joffrey deciding at the last minute to have Ned executed. What is one way to solve that? Have nobles judged by their peers and seperate judicial power from the monarchy so that it serves as check on the sovereign. What is one way to show that? Not have the monarchs present and judging someone they accused of treason. That seems like a very logical reason completley grounded in the narrative and character motivation for why Jon and Dany would not be at the trial.
  10. Well said. Show Cersei is incredible.
  11. I woild call killing your father and ex lover pretty questionable. Taking Shae to Kl even though your father threatened to kill her if you took her is pretty questionable. Using wildfire to keep fucking Joffrey on the throne also seems somewhat open to debate.

    No. But he could be tried by his fellow Lords Paramount Although I doubt it and even Friki says there are problems with that theory Bran literally uses magic to tell Tyrion somwthing according to the leak so not sure how the dragonpit scene says anything about the existence of magic being gone

    I personally saw the video and these people are translating it incorrectly. What he speculates about is if the people at the council reflect the distribution of power in post war Westeros. Sansa the North, Sam the Reach, the guy in the golden costume Dorne, Yara the Iron Islands, possibly Brienne the Stormlands. But he also says Dany and Jon would have the crownlanda if they are on the throne. And he is up front that the potential holes in his theory are that there is no Riverlands person present and then says maybe Arya because of the Tully connection, or maybe the other mysterious person or maybe even Davos gets it along with being Jon’s Hand. And he says maybe this is a sort of Great Council. And that is it.

    He clearly thinks its a trial.

    i don't think that last point is really accurate. he is speculating if we can infer who are the lords paramounts of the different kingdoms based on who is at the dragon pit.
