    Battle of ice two posible scenarios

    Scenario 4: They do battle in a protracted siege or massive field battle, and because holy crap it's cold, they end up almost all dying, and Jon and his ragtag force take Winterfell like taking candy from a baby. Halfway through the frozen, snowed over courtyard, they stumble across the corpses of Stannis and Roose/Ramsay locked in battle, frozen to death.

    What If Tywin Lied About Casterly Rock?

    Of course they're out of gold. If he's playing some tricky con, then why would he lie to is daughter in private about it? Show Lannisters have to be broke, otherwise they don't need the Iron Bank or Highgarden. That being said, there's no reason book Lannisters can't still have running mines.

    Jon Snow being real Aegon

    Aegon is them foreshadowing that Jon will conquer the seven kingdoms.

    Jon Snow being real Aegon

    Jon's an appropriate name for him. Both Rhaegar and Ned have someone close to them named Jon. Ned probably chose the name based on that characteristic. Rhaegar's ghost wouldn't choke him out at night for picking a terrible name (like Robert or Gregor), nor would Lyanna's, and everyone will assume that this child is truly Ned's bastard, whom he named after his foster father. His middle name, however, is still a matter of some speculation. I'm leaning towards Nihilscis.

    Aegon TWOW

    Euron's story is going nowhere. Remember this is GRRM's creation. Just as soon as Euron has developed some great plan that everyone agrees is foolproof and awesome, boom!, he'll slip on a patch of the deck being soaped up by one of his mutes and fall overboard, hitting his head on an orca on the way down, which will then chomp his balls off. Oh, and it'll be his wedding day. Or, alternately, life will imitate art, and GRRM will slip on a bar of soap in the shower and we won't get the end of the story.

    So why are the dead such a threat?

    Well, taking out White Walkers will take out however many wights they produced, so there's that. I'm thinkin' Jon should invest heavily in obsidian arrows and marksmen, because those WWs aren't really taking cover or darting around much in battle - easy targets. Second, they should start building some effing dragon armor (and, uh, dragon rider armor), because them mo'fos can crisp a thousand wights at a time, possibly taking out WWs as well. That dang wight dragon, however, is going to be a problem. Did it really fly as fast as it did during the last episode? That was crazy! Still, Dany has two, and they're bigger, so they should be able to double team him. Or just send in Arya, who will jump out from behind a flower pot and garrote the Night King and feed his testicles to Cersei. Problem solved.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 707?

    http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Night's_King There is totally a NK in the books! We haven't seen him yet, and he may a legend, but he's definitely mentioned multiple times.

    Zombies can clear a 6 foot moat. Fire is hot in an upward direction. Melting ice would work if the ice were above the flame - not so well if they're trying to lay a torch as close to the frozen surface as possible. They might be able to produce a six-inch moat that way.

    Oh, he totally tried it. The wights tend to, uh, fall apart when accelerated to high speeds. I bet that chattering skull trying to wriggle its way over to someone's ankles was terrifying, if not particularly dangerous.

    Great episode. It finally explains and resolves the inexplicable rivalry between the Stark sisters. Also, Bran gets to be useful, and Littlefinger gets to grovel on the floor and then eat it thanks to his own dagger. Jaime finally does the right thing. Too bad he couldn't have brought a small army with him. At least he's bringing a Valyrian steel blade and a pimp hand capable of bashing zombie brains out. Jon and Daenerys was going to happen. I hope he doesn't throw up too much when he finds out he boinked his aunt. Incest may be cool with the Targaryens (and Lannisters), but I doubt the Starks enjoy it. Sam and Bran were awesome! Finally the cat is out of the bag! The freak on a leash scene was awesome. Cersei: "Ser Gregor, fetch me my brown dress!" Euron kinda had a good point about islands and the seaworthiness of wights. I wonder if Brienne and Missandei are feeling homesick... Theon finally grew a pair of metaphorical balls and use his lack of literal balls to his advantage in his fight against the heart attack man. Hey, anonymous Iron Islander, you should have laid off all that Long John Silver's back home.

    He has undead giants and white walkers capable of shattering steel (gates). He doesn't need a dragon to get past the wall; he needs a dragon to get past Daenerys' dragons. Otherwise, as soon as his 100k human torches shamble too close to Winterfell, winter will be over in the largest bonfire the world has ever seen. I guarantee a dragon will die in the book and be resurrected by the Night King, even if it doesn't occur in as reality-defying a manner as it did in episode 6.

    Anyone who has seen a candle or a blowtorch knows that fire burns blue when it's extremely hot. That would make sense given that wights are stronger than normal humans. What doesn't make sense is how the dragon doesn't immolate itself every time it lights up. I guess dragon corpses are also immune to fire. Also, if you must go the magical route, the books describe Drogon's (or was it Balerion's?) fire as black, so that's not outside the realm of possibility that another dragon breathes blue flames.

    Bran was rewinding something else over and over. A man has needs.

    They had a moat thanks to the heavy wights bum rushing the stage at the beginning. It was refreezing. What's a tiny sword-chopped moat going to get them? Zombies can jump.
