    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Looks like the walls of Kl have been breached and the lion banners on the gates of the red keep are no longer flying http://watchersonthewall.com/season-8-kings-landing-filming-spoilers-game-of-thrones-cast-tours-seville/

    Dany’s sins verse Stannis’

    Clearly not in the show to @Angel Eyes point

    Dany’s sins verse Stannis’

    Euron admitting he killed Balon won him the Kingsmoot if anything. Once he said he paid the Iron Price for it he swayed the whole thing. Not the most stable system.

    Plot armor is the best armor

    Make Armor For Daenerys

    This show is not very realistic when it comes to armor and battlefield equipment.

    Make Armor For Daenerys

    That would make a whole lot of sense plot wise

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I still expecting him to reach as well. but not because it would be anti climatic other wise. From the looks of things they went all out for the battle in the north. I just think there is enough foreshadowing hinting that he makes it down to KL

    Interesting. So we know the unsullied and Dothraki will be involved in the final abttle at KL. now the question is who are they fighting?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Yes she does. Who knows ultimatley what that idea that she is no longer in charge when KL gets burned by dragon fire even means. So many ways that could play out. They could even just mean it super technically as in towards the end of the final battle the city will catch on fire from dragons somehow and at that point in the final battle she will no longer control the red keep. But doesn’t necessarily mean she was not controlling it when the final battle started.

    If Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie,

    Lol. First of all if you want to use critical thinking you should read what someone writes. What I said is the narrative is pointing away from your interpretation. So my assesment of the facts are somewhat irrelevent to that since we are talking about what the narrative is clearly pointing at. You can disagree with the narrative or think the narrative didn’t actually show what it is clearly telling us. But you have to recognize at least where the narrative is leaning. But maybe that is not your forte since you seem to think Stannis died a hero in the tv show.
  15. I agree with you. I think people underestimate way too much her chances of having a big come back and being relevent to the end game. People think too linearly.

    If Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie,

    What facts? The main fact is that the tv series is using very common visual storytelling techniques to communicate something. It almost never does voice overs. I can only think of a couple in the entire run of the show. It is choosing to present a voice over to tell us several key pieces of information all of which are there to build to the final piece of information that it spells out unambiguously that Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. By choosing to use a voice over, the show is deciding that this piece of information is so critical it needs to convey it via voice over and spell it out for the audience. I don’t believe they would do that unless its to communicate that what we are hearing is true and thus what the narrative itself strongly supports.

    If Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie,

    That is certainly your interpretation. And it is one the show is rejecting strongly by undermining the causis beli for Robert’s Rebellion in order to clearly make Jon Snow - Aegon Targaryen the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Maybe the books will support your intererpration. But the show clearly does not.

    If Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie,

    That seems obvious. The lie that Rhaegar kidnapped and raped Lyanna. Who knows if someone lied. Still a season to go You watched Season 8 already? Lol. Looked fairly clear to me that Rhsegsr and Lyanns were wed which was not part of the so called clear chain of events. And it is also clear why that scene is there. It is to make clear that Jon is the Rightful King

    If Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie,

    That is clearly not the interpretation the narrative is endorsing

    Does that just mean a dragon at WF?
  21. The show is heavily foreshadowing that Sam will be the new Lord of Horn Hill and Warden of the South. Dorne will just be whichever random name they pick from a hat since either way won’t have any plot significance. Maybe they will just say House Dayne since show watchers are familiar with that last name.

    Its crazy even thinking how the actual ending to this story will have been captured on film by June

    Stannis is also dead and died alone with a ruined legacy. And his death and total destruction of his legacy is inherently connected with his belief system and why he would have chosen not to go beyond the wall. What is the life of a bastard boy compared to the kingdom?

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I think you nailed it. If you really analyze her arc in terms of beliefs which at the end of the day is the centerpiece of a character arc, ruling just has nothing to do with it. In conrast to Dany who every character arc is centered around ruling.

    Yes. Stannis would have let him die.
