I don't remember that. I think we see people assume TPTWP would be a Targ because they are the royal house (but of course when the north declares independence the Starks become a royal house). Correct me if I'm wrong.

Barristan tells Dany in ADWD that Aerys and Rhaella were forced into marriage because a wood's witch prophecized that TPTWP would be born of their line.

That quote you posted is the reason why I expect Arya to die in the books, and not pull this stunt.

No way D&D changed that from what GRRM told them.  Too big a plot point for a major character.

I guessing its just a book thing now but a woods witch said TPTWP would come from the union of Rhaella and Aerys II

Then maybe TPTWP does something other than defeat the white walkers?

This is a tough crowd. I loved this episode. I was on the edge of my seat and screaming at the tv through all the drama. I’m sure there are discrepancies with Martin’s books, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so invested in a tv show. Great, entertaining television. 

I found the episode itself to be highly entertaining but the show has kinda gone off the rails plot-wise and I found them beating the Night King in episode three to be a bit anticlimactic.

So the woods witch was wrong and Rhaegar plunged the realm into civil war and destroyed his own family for nothing?

Yeah maybe TPTWP will just be the one that brings peace to Westeros again

I figured as much. I was afraid of being right, and right I was.

Would of loved to see a rematch between him and Euron but hey can't get everything I suppose.

 

The way things are going, Arya will probably kill Euron.  :rolleyes:

You're assuming GRRM doesn't change his mind by the time he writes his last book (if ever).

1- how the f is Arya the prince that was promised, or AzorAhai

2- Beric's great mission was to save Arya lol

3- every major character is still alive and most secondary are too

4- they will all just die vs Euron

5- Dany and Jon did nothing relevant the entire battle

6- what the hell was Bran doing all that time. I was expecting Dragon or Theon warging or something

7- I laughed at many moments that were not supposed to.

In the D&D soap opera version of George's story, yes

I have no problem with Arya the super assassin though I too would have liked her to steal a WW face to do so. 

 

Great episode. Very epic. Some holes in battle strategy and I don’t get why the Night King would be impervious to fire. 

 

Overall very satisfying. Can’t wait for Cleganebowl and the rest of it.

Bran was just sitting around being significant and warging some crows to see battle progress but tell no one about it.

They'll be more to the story, or at least there would have been if we ever got the books,

I don't think Arya being the main instrument in defeating the Great Other is the third and final WTF moment.

I always knew Arya would slay the Great Other or whoever tf

I always knew it.

She's been specifically trained to fight unconventionally

But she's definitely not the Prince that Was Promised. The Prince that Was Promised looks like it's going to be yet another dropped plotline
