    somebody clear a few things up for me ?

    I disagree. Wights are perfectly "fine" in water, they just don't know how to swim so they sink to the bottom. Evidently they are still active and being able to "work" while submerged, given how they managed to put massive chains on a dead Viserion and almost pulled Tormund into the hole.
  3. There is no proof that Maegor was actually mad. He was just a mean guy who was willing to be cruel to protect his family. Tywin, if he had dragons, would have terrorized any family who challenged his. And should the Faith speak out against the Lannisters? Tywin would have burned them all.

    Stannis wrote the Pink Letter. Clydas changed it

    How do you explain Thorne writing the letter when he is supposed to be on a ranging? Ive never really looked into how people who support the idea of thorne still being at CB explain this so i’m curious
  5. ??? He has one of the shittiest on court attitudes ive ever seen in a professional player. His perma-scowl, his constant barking, his ability to get offended by every fucking thing. Are we watching the same player?

    It would have to be Summerhall. There isn't really anything else that fits the time line.
  7. Yeah, scrapping the away goals rule seems like madness, especially when the CL has been full of goal laden games over the past few years. It does exactly what it's intended to, it makes teams try harder to get goals away from home. Every single football team (apart from Palace) are better at home than away. That's not a coincidence. It's easier to play at home than away.

    What? He may be impulsive and maybe a little short tempered, but he seems good enough otherwise, certainly not I would call horrible. Childish or immature maybe. Not sure where you are coming from.

    The Night King and King's Landing

    Bringing the Wight to King's Landing to prove they exist may have allowed the Night King to know the location of King's Landing and may have doomed the city. Bran also has visions in season 6 of a dragon flying over King's Landing and we can't tell when it takes place as there are images from the past and future (sept blowing up) mixed together. This is just a theory I have because everything points to the Night King and his army just marching to Winterfell and that seems too predictable for this story. There has always been a plot twist whenever an event was so predetermined.
  10. Let's look at a timeline here. Aegon landed in Westeros for the first time 2 years before his conquering started (2 BC). The last dragon - which was stunted and misshapen - was born died in 153 AC. The last full grown dragons died/went missing between then and the end of the Dance of Dragons twenty years earlier (131 AC) So as far as Westeros is concerned, they've only known/had to deal with dragons for about 133 years. Here are the reasons why nobody has built a castle to withstand a dragon: Building castles with the available resources is very time consuming and expensive It would take Westeros YEARS to not only learn enough about dragon's weaknesses, but also to design and plan the castle in a way that takes these weaknesses into account, much less build it Given these conditions, this would limit the option of the above happening to rich/important lords Stretching this process out longer is the fact that the realm periodically had to deal with wars of various sizes between Aegon's Conquering and up to and including Dance of Dragons, which drains resources Because all of this takes so much time to plan, word will have definitely gotten out about a house building an anti-dragon castle, which the Crown would find out about and act on swiftly. Depending on the reigning monarch, this could be very bad. I admit that making modifications to a castle would take less time and be less costly, but the rest of the castle (being made of stone) would still not be able to withstand the dragon. Also, outside of Targaryens I don't think anyone would be able to get close enough to study them anyway, which means that the likelihood of anyone figuring out some of your suggestions (what smells they don't like) is very small. And after the last dragon died, it hasn't mattered for people to try for the last 150 or so years.

    I have a hunch it was Summerhall. The Targaryens messed with something they shouldn't have messed with, a magic beyond their understanding and control. Rhaegar was born on the very day of the tragedy.

    Samwell's response?

    Danaerys seemed to catch herself as she was saying it as if realising what she was saying and to who. What I believe is, that is her instinct and she struggles to keep her instincts in check. She's the dragon.

    Heresy 220 and the nature of magic

    With the show heading towards a Battle of Winterfell between the Night King and the good guys, I had some new thoughts on geography. We discussed Winterfell as winter + fell. 'Fell' being either where Winter started or where it ended. But isn't it in the wrong place? If Winterfell was the last stronghold of the living in the Long Night and where winter ended in a battle between the living and the dead like what the show is bringing us, wouldn't the people in the South be relatively unaffected? Far from being the armageddon that threatens to wipe out all life, people near Storm's End might need to wear an extra jacket. Dornish might enjoy a cool breeze. The final battle, if it came to that, should be much further South. And then the Wall is in the wrong place too. If Winterfell is where Winter started, it should be North of the Wall. And the Wall, if it is a barrier between the Others and the land of the living, should be the front of a war, and again, if this was the front, people living in the South would be unaffected.

    So what was Criston Cole's deal?

    Cole being a jilted lover makes sense to me.He got turned down by The Princess Of Dragonstone and vowed vengeance.

    Samwell's response?

    When I watched it, (both when it premiered and on demand) it was within the episode itself, I guess about half-way through. It was.. scary given what we know of Dany. She didn't complete her sentence though. Eek!

    Minor characters you wanna see lose and why?

    JonCon - I'm worried that he's returned to Westeros as a much less honourable man. Arianne - She isn't the worst person in Westeros by any stretch of the imagination but I just can't quite get behind her. Doran - I think he's a shitty ruler for his people. Bowen Marsh - I understand his concerns but I just can't respect the man. Hosteen Frey - You stay away from my Stannis!

    Sansa up to something (with Cersei?)

    Arya and Sansa might know. The scene with Arya and Jon, when Arya tells Jon Sansa is only protecting her family. Jon says he's her family, too, and Arya tells him not to forget that. Maybe this is why Sansa is plotting something because she knows Dany might not take lightly Jon being the heir. Bran could have spilled the beans to them already. They have to be one step ahead. Yet nothing about Sansa and Jon meeting reveals that she would know. She's only doubting Jon's decision because he's in love with Dany. But Sansa and Arya would keep their cool, if there was a plot of some sort. Qyburn is clearly sending Bronn after Tyrion with the bow, that's the way Tyrion killed their father. Sansa would not plot against Tyrion, I assume. Qyburn says the Queen has other plans for Dany than killing her. She wants her dragons?

    Have we considered its an old representation of the sun? Its the Long Night, the Night King represents the Darkness. They did point out the Karstark sigil randomly early on, a sunburst.

    Prediction: Jon will become a direwolf

    While I do expect around two TWOW chapters with Jon trapped in the mind of Ghost, each perhaps lasting a week or two timeline wise, I don't think it will be a permanent situation. I am open to the idea of Jon getting his regular body back and eventually second lifing Ghost after possibly dying in the War for the Dawn, but as of yet I still think there are too many avenues to explore with human Jon. Perhaps Jon's dead body will be stored down in the cold cellars beneath Castle Black while Mel/whatever healer attends to his remains. The temperature down there might be good for stopping any potential decomposition. We got a glimpse of the cold storage systems and the "wormways" in ADWD; foreshadowing, perhaps?

    somebody clear a few things up for me ?

    But Robert's rebellion overthrew the Targs so why does their lineage still matter? Also, Aegon was an invader who took Westeros by dragon force, so it would be hypocritical to argue that a Targ linage is any more valid than a Baratheon one.
