    Lol, I won't pretend I could do it any better. I'm not a screenwriter though and I have full confidence in GRRM to think of that scenario for me, which is why people buy his books, and why the series became so immensely popular. And now that the screenwriters only know critical plot points, but can't piggyback the books anymore on how to get there, we get poorly thought out stuff. This "as if you can do better" argument is so pointless.

    I'm pretty sure that the Others in the books will also get their hands on a dragon for sure, probably even one of Dany's dragons based on this episode. The circumstances under which this happens will be much better thought out I'm pretty sure too though.

    You guys are all overthinking/ hyping this so much. Viserion will just be an undead dragon for the NK to ride and control, nothing more. And Jon will ride Rhaegal, and he won't be able to control Viserion in any way that wouldn't make any sense.

    I bet he's nothing more than an undead dragon for the NK to ride. That's already terrifying enough and the question of how do you even kill that still stands. The fact that they had the NK touch him was probably because they thought it looked cooler, I don't think they mind the minor inconsistency that's involved with it, hell they probably didn't even think about that.

    [Spoilers] Rant and Rave Without Repercussion

    The worst part of it is that many casual viewers will probably like "omg best episode ever, did you see that Dragon die and stuff, and Jon and Dany yay" ugh kill me

    dragonstone to the wall in a day?

    Thank you Ser. I understand they can't show traveling all the time and nobody wants to see this, but the amount of ground that has already been covered this season, would imply months possibly even more than a year has gone by since Dany left for Westeros last Season, soooo what has been happening everywhere? This argument that "it took a few weeks or months but they just didn't show it" doesn't work if they don't show anything changing at all, that's what makes it look like they are teleporting everywhere.

    Is Jon a real dragon?

    You are right, I'd just think that if the show wanted it to be a Targaryen thing rather than a "Dany-thing" they'd have shown Jon being less burned than he was, and how would they justify the death of Viserys? They could argue that it wasn't "technically" fire, but molten gold I guess, still I feel like it's just something very inconsistent on the show.

    Is Jon a real dragon?

    I completely agree, if it were the case that Targaryens are fireproof, then I don't think the difference between Jon and Dany's blood should have that much of an impact. Of course this is complete speculation lol.

    Is Jon a real dragon?

    "Pure X-bloodline" always comes with a grain of salt, there's no bloodline in the world that's entirely pure, and neither is there in asoiaf, regardless of all the incest. The point being made was that Dany has more Targaryen blood, causing her to be more resistant to fire than Jon. (Which I disagree with, see my first post on this thread).

    Is Jon a real dragon?

    Isn't Dany's mother Rhaella Targaryen?

    Is Jon a real dragon?

    I'd like to clear out this Targaryen-fireproof conundrum with a SSM dialogue : " Granny: Do Targaryens become immune to fire once they "bond" to their dragons? George RR Martin: Granny, thanks for asking that. It gives me a chance to clear up a common misconception. TARGARYENS ARE NOT IMMUNE TO FIRE! The birth of Dany's dragons was unique, magical, wonderous, a miracle. She is called The Unburnt because she walked into the flames and lived. But her brother sure as hell wasn't immune to that molten gold. Revanshe: So she won't be able to do it again? George RR Martin: Probably not. " I realize Show Dany probably actually is fireproof

    Arya V Brienne!!!!!!! Appreciation Thread

    My one true gripe with this fight is how they depicted it. I can suspend my disbelief at someone weighing less than half of their (armoured) opponent getting the best of them through speed and skill. (Which on it's own is pretty impossible, Brienne could just tackle her and crush her skull, Mountain-style, but that's where the suspension of disbelief comes in). But if speed and skill >>> brute strength and skill is what you are going for, then DO NOT show Arya actually blocking some of Brienne's blows with a sword aptly named Needle. They do a decent job when they show her dodging whatever Brienne throws at her, just keep it that way, and work around that. There's no way Arya can block Brienne.

    Is Jamie dead

    The show has destroyed Jaime's character enough as is, him dying like this doesn't fit, neither in the show or the books. He's still essential to the valonqar prophecy. His story has to come full circle. He has to break from Cersei (and kill her) to finally be his own man. I personally think he and Cersei will die together, some think he'll be a hero (THE hero) afterwards, but in any case, Cersei has to die before he does, or at the very least die because of his actions. This is not how he dies.
