    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Don't think so. I don't see why they would. Michelle did well as Cat and there is no reason to avoid having her come back....to top secret filming in Iceland when Iceland was not supposed to be a filming location this year that is.

    I am not convinced. I mean, I do of course realize everyone watching wants to know about Jon. But that doesn't mean the show needs to oblige immediately. I am in the camp that firmly believes any Jon "rebirth" requires more context to be established than we currently have.

    I disagree. I mean, it does happen in the books, so the bonus of doing it all at once is that it can be compressed rather than drawn out, and it allows to explore the ways that people are changed by being "reborn" in an interwoven way. It doesn't need to occupy a great deal of screen time as a theme. It is just that the connections between the various characters who turn out not to be dead for good and their stories will help to enhance the impact.

    I think she will be in season 6, and we will see her before Jon is "reborn". It makes zero sense to do it later. Part of the point of reserving her for season 6 would be to create a resurrection narative for the season, and the reason for doing that in season 6 and not earlier is Jon. All of the others: Sandor, Gregor, Stoneheart, could easily have been brought back or shown more earlier, except for Jon. I could actually see season 6 starting off with a creepy scene something like the Merrett Frey chapter.

    Agreed. Missandei and Grey Worm is such a non-issue. Furthermore it is quite likely that it is being used to simplify book aspects of these two characters and will influence their behaviour in some meaningful way now that they are helping Tyrion run Meereen.

    Indeed. But if she does....there wil be a whole lot of face-palms happening from all the people who have been so enraged by her supposed exclusion.

    If you are talking about IMDB that is an error. That actress is in the group of Braavosi players as part of Arya's story. Play within the show. She is not Stoneheart. I do think we might get Stoneheart in season 6 for reasons I already gave, but I very much doubt she would be re-cast.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    The thing is, Aegon would never accept Margaery under those terms. He would, however, accept Margaery if doing so would win him the Kingdoms. Annulment is not enough for that. Regicide and an open gate into KL is, and the Tyrells are in position and angry enough to arrange both. For one King to replace another, the other needs to die.

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    I'm not saying anything. That was my first post on the thread. The only point was, if Littlefinger was supposedly at the Fingers, what would that prove? Noone would ever be able to verify if that was even true. So who knows where Littlefinger was at the time?

    The Tyrells are not an obstacle. Their alliance with the Lannisters is over, whether Cersei knows it or not. They are ready and willing to jump ship. All they need is a good deal with Aegon and they will off Tommen and let Aegon waltz into KL.

    i am also interested in this possibility.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    I am glad to read the reports on the reading of Arianne II because I hope it will put to rest the notion that Arianne intends to marry Aegon, or that Aegon would agree to it. It always seemed very clear to me that Doran doubted Aegon's legitimacy and for good reason. Doran has better plays he can make. Meanwhile, Aegon intends to marry Dany, and would never agree to a marriage with Dorne when they bring so few soldiers and resources to the table. Of course, Quentyn's death is a problem. It may well doom any potential alliance between Dany and Dorne. If Aegon is also not a good choice for them it is hard to see which direction they would turn.

    Let's say, for the purpose of discussion, that Littlefinger had indeed been exhiled to the Fingers by then. Is anyone AT the Fingers to verify his presence? Nope. Being "at the Fingers" is basically a stand-in for being anywhere he chooses to be without anyone paying any attention to him.
