  1. If GRRM does either of those, I'm sure it'll make sense within his narrative. I don't see it at the moment, and I don't believe either will happen in the books because in the show 1) Sansa was ripped out of her own narrative and shoved in Theon's/Stannis's/Jon's storylines and 2) they did nothing sensible with Bran that would make him monarch material. There's loads of wiggle room that I can see - a clear ocean of it. Yes, I believe Sansa will be a player of the game of thrones, but in and from the Vale, unless GRRM shows me otherwise.
  2. Elio and Linda have done a segment on YouTube re. the endgame and, on the whole, I agree with them. Needless to say, they're also struggling with the Bran as king scenario.
  3. Meanwhile, a new power rises in Valyria - it's Daenerys resurrected by Red Rahloo and she's not much happier than Lady Stoneheart. Hijinks ensue.
  4. He'd probably get better if they'd stop poisoning him, don't you think?
  5. There's a great deal here that I agree with, especially the bold. They certainly mishandled Bran's storyline very badly that we have to go through mental gymnastics to get to this end point. I'm not convinced this is his end-point. I do believe, however, GRRM can get him there in a logical manner, if that's his plan. I've thought he'd stay in that cave and the show hasn't shown me anything to change my mind on that. Given we already know that Book!Bran has gained power even Bloodraven hasn't, I think it's not beyond the realms of possibility that he'll be able to exercise influence from his "weirwood throne". I believe there will be real adverse consequences to Jon's resurrection/re-awakening after his time in Ghost. We can't ignore what we've seen with Beric and Lady Stoneheart or Varamyr's revelations. They have to bite in some way. In addition, I've long thought that Jon would end his story in the North (the heart of Winter, to be precise) and lose his life to the fight with the Others - the hidden prince who remains hidden. That's my pet theory, but I'm not wedded to it. If he doesn't, I have no doubt I'll be satisfied with whatever GRRM concocts. My watch wait continues.
  6. I could see a scenario where Jorah could be the one to kill her, in fact, as a mercy killing, for sure, but not otherwise.
  7. I normally love programmes about how inventive TV shows are made but I haven't been able to watch any of the GoT since season 5 because of D7D's moronic pronouncements.
  8. This rant was quite enjoyable. I agreed with everything he said about the pacing and tedium, especially.
  9. I think they would if Bran makes a substantive and quantifiable difference to the war, for example., using the ravens to scout positions or using his ability to see elsewhere to gain advantages for their own armies. He did sit as Lord of Winterfell before Theon took over the castle so he does have some of that experience too. I mean - it could work if it's told properly.
  10. Theon was published as the gift chapter in the UK version of Dance instead of the Barristan chapter.
  11. If we take the leap that Bran leaves the cave (I'll believe it when I read it), and if Bran actually demonstrates that his powers of reading the past and possible futures or seeing tactical advantages through skinchanging ravens, etc., is of actual functional use to winning certain wars (which he really didn't in the show) then I could see that a Great Council may consider that a gives him an edge as a king (who would need a regent, given his age). Agreed - I think that is definitely set up in the Theon WoW chapter.
  12. "As said" that's not how he is styled in the currently published books, is it. And, yes, I've just checked. So roll on Winds of Winter - I can't wait for Aegon to kick the Lannisters out of KL.
  13. Except that "Aegon VI" isn't how he's styled in the currently published books - he's Prince Aegon, which is right as, historically, heirs don't get a regnal number until they become a monarch - Aegon has yet to win the throne.
  14. I'm very intrigued that he refers to Young Griff as "Aegon VI". I take this as his defeating Cersei/Tommen and ascending the Iron Throne, which is what I'm hoping for. Cersei vastly outstayed her story-worthiness for me on the show. And it makes sense that the Dance of Dragons will be Aegon and Daenerys. It was a horrible fudge on the show.
  15. I'm so conflicted about that shot. It's an amazing shot and very effective, but it's also rather on-the-nose devil imagery - I felt I was being beaten round the face with "Ooooo, Dany bad" shots.
  16. I expect D&D want the fans to do their own honeypotting, because they know they can't make a lick of sense for themselves.
