  1. The Blackfyre Rebellion would make for an excellent TV show. Also, be incredibly relevant to modern debates given how central a role Dorne plays.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Hmm. From leaks it seems to me Tyrion is most likely dead for treason not a guardian to the heir to the throne

    Sansa's first impressions of Daenerys?

    Who is this woman and is she any different than her father that murdered my grandfather and uncle is what she is probably thinking and did my brother just bend the knee because she is attractive. This conflict though I think will be quickly resolved and Sansa is going to be the one to argue they need to marry. Not for nothing did LF mention them getting married to Sansa

    Season 5 vs Books 4 and 5

    Doomed to fail it tough to say. What does it mean for an adaptation to fail? As someone pointed out, Season 5 still broke viewership ratings and won emmys. If that is failing than I want some more failure in my life. Now I do agree it was the weakest season. But does that mean it failed? Not really. havint said that I think adapting books 4 and 4 was always going to be extremely tough. Those books were seen as weaker and don’t really lend themselves to straight adaptation

    Which questions need to be answered in season 8?

    not even a question on the show. not even a concept on the show, although it might give us the answer. pretty sure we got the answer in 707 that is a good one. another one is, how does the prince that was promised prophecy end up coming true and who is the younger more beautiful person

    I am pretty sure that is the twist. The writing was on the wall for Stannis burning Shireen as well.....

    he def. is acting like he has something. that free folk comment was interesting. if Tyrion or Jon are dead than yea we won't be getting more adventures. So what GRRM said would still be true.

    I am riding a high of good series finales this year with the americans and leftovers I think there is still skepticism he actually knows anything. At least based on others have spoken with.

    Than she would truly be like Aegon the Conqueror with teats. Aegon lost Rhaenys his true love of his two sisters.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Agree The real question with this ending is how does Tyrion die and how does that death bring his story to an end. Maybe he dies doing something heroic, perhaps driven by his failures in Season 7. Would give new meaning to the conversation between Tyrion and Dany where she says what she likes about him is that he is not a hero because heroes do stupid things and they die. And it would have the subtext of Tyrion being needy and doing something to impress a girl which is very Tyrion. Or maybe Tyrion turns out to be the Valonqar. It would still make sense. One on an actual level, the scene is not about foreshadowing. It is about her resisting temptation. Had she grabbed the throne in that moment she would have stayed trapped in the HOTU. And that can ultimatley be foreshadowing for the decisions she makes throughout the story to not go for the Iron Throne at different moments. In 307 she decides to free slaves. In 405 she decides to stay in Mereen and finish the job. And in 705-706 she decides to try and secure a truce with Cersei to prioritize the fight against the NK. I agree. Can’t see Tyrion as King. For this scenario to make sense to me, Jon and Dany’s kid would have to be ruler and Tyrion rulling as regent.

    Javi could have just told him and said make it look like you did not get it from me. Either way though, looking forward to thst video. At the very least, Friki is doing a good job of creating hype
