    What end of the story will satisfy you

    Minor correction, but it was only hundred of years. Fully agree with the rest of your post, though.

    NK could have used Bran to guide everyone astray. He must have another more important target.

    They’ve left the exact workings of the gauntlet pretty vague, you appear to just ‘think’ what it is you want and if it’s within its power, it happens. I could imagine Tony just thinking ‘dust everyone who means us harm’, which by then would’ve excluded Gamora. I’d also say that trading a life for the soul stone exempts that life from being returned via the stone, hence why that Gamora is permanently dead and why there was no point trying to get Nat back. You can cheat time, you can’t cheat the stones.

    Have to confess i’m going to go see MiB just because of the Thompson/Hemsworth pairing Wonderful chemistry together. I’ll just keep my head canon road trip with Thor Captain Marvel and Valkyrie for now. I’ve been building it since you mentioned it

    Potential plot hole: how did Clint and Natasha find the soul stone? The only two people who knew the exact location were dead, unless Gamora told Nebula details, and not just that it's on Vormir. Planets, they are big.

    By the way, for Giants fans who hate the Jones pick, here's some consolation: you could see Eli for three more years. https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/04/26/dave-gettleman-eli-manning-daniel-jones-draft-giants-franchise-quarterback

    IDK. A silly twist for the story, imo, the whole pregnancy regardless what the prophecies say. I don't see the point. If it's fake news, only Tyrion and Jaime have been fooled, and for what reason? If it's true, again what's the point for her to deliver any more babies?

    Not if she is sitting up drinking wine after giving it up to Euron.

    Favorite new character introduced in Fire and Blood?

    I believe Haegon fought with Blackfyre during the 3rd Blackfyre rebellion. It would make sense if Haegon did and wouldn't if he didn't. I just want it confirmed in FaB volume 2. Storywise it would make sense for the Targs to have regained Blackfyre during one of the rebellion or having Aegon show up with a sword last known to have ties to the Blackfyre pretenders ( if you believe Blackfyre is in one of the chest given to Aegon) and the Golden company a company with deep ties to house Blackfyre would look a little weird. The one thing that has always bothered me about the Targs, if they did regain Blackfyre. Is it doesn't look/feel like getting it back was a big deal to them. Idk, it just seems odd to me. Now maybe GRRM couldn't make a big deal because it would spoil something in the last 2 book.

    Yawn. Florio is just trying to get out ahead of the outrage mob. Suspend Hill for 8 games and send him to counseling for a few years.

    Alternatively, Steve realised he could pick up Mjolnir, but faked out so as not to embarrass Thor. I've seen another reading that Steve was almost worthy to pick up Mjolnir but couldn't because he was still keeping a few secrets (like that Tony's parents had been murdered by HYDRA). Once that was out in the open, he was clear to go. 2023 Steve was worthy, 2015 Steve was not (but was almost there). They can still time travel, as they have all the technology and the methodology, or the know-how on how to recreate it. It would just now be exceedingly ill-advised. No, because the 2014 splinter timeline is now an orphaned timeline which, if we're reading this right, got collapsed back into the main timeline by Steve returning the Power Stone to Morag (which meant all six Power Stones were present in the same place and fixed everything). Things created in that timeline still exist, but they have no impact on the present of the primary timeline. That leaves Gamora as something of an anomaly. The question left unanswered by the movie is if alt-Gamora was dusted along with the rest of Thanos's forces, or if "primary" Gamora can be recovered from the Soul Stone at some point. The kid from Iron Man 3. Cap took Mjolnir back to the Dark World timeline and left it there for Thor to pick up and then for Hela to destroy later on. The Infinity Stones, as both Hulk and the Ancient One explained in their info dump scene for the audience (complete with CG PowerPoint presentation). The destruction of the Infinity Stones in the present timeline may therefore be somewhat worrying and have long-term consequences (as indeed they did in the comic).

    Well by my ‘timeline absorbtion’ theory, the universe in which Gamora is missing is reabsorbed when the stone is returned. Gamora carries on through GotG1 and 2, then dies in Infinity War, then an anomalous 2014 Gamora finds herself in 2023. So basically returning infinity stones: necessary for timeline repairing, returning people (Thanos, Gamora): not so much.

    What end of the story will satisfy you

    A certain finality to the ending means the IT is gone? I would suspect that indicates defeating the NK. No longer having need of the now shattered Wall. Restoring and re-organizing houses (and maybe even some inter mixing/consolidation of them). Definitively restoring Westeros and the hierarchy. The point is, Jon Snow, for example, has not displayed ANY of the faulty thinking of previous kings, such as the Mad King. In fact, the exact opposite, as many suspect he somehow sacrifices himself for the realm (I disagree, but reserve the right to be wrong). These are traits the last few kings and queens have absolutely lacked. Anytime anyone sits a throne there is "possible" usurping and such but that is the nature of feudalism. The point is, the Targs ruled for thousands of years with surprising stability and only until one of them was SO far off the edge of craziness did anyone dare revolt. Once an actual GOOD king, who is also a Targ, but holds appeal to other areas, ya know, such as the North, things settle back down to "normal" again. THAT is finality. I feel like people here are very much like Cersei...they would rather have a cool idea and be wrong than to yield to someone else's point. The IT is a symbol of Aegon and the Targs. It's just that. A symbol. And again, a symbol of, generally, a very great dynasty of rulers. the IT isn't the "enemy". Defeating and or surviving the NK is the REAL issue and the real test. The Seven Kingdoms should, generally speaking, return to a pretty "normal" layout, dating back roughly to when the first book was written (obviously with some changes here and there but generally recognizable).

    Eh, Washington isn’t actually that bad of a landing spot, given that they can sit him for at least 8 games and spend the rest of the draft building around him.

    I actually fell asleep after the Bruins game because I am old, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the Pats kept their pick and took a big receiver. Usually that's a spot where Belichick takes a DT or something. Interesting that the two worst WR-drafting teams of recent history (Ravens and Pats) both spent first round picks on receivers. I hope N'Keal Harry can pick up the plays quickly.

    hopefully it was them saying goodbye and she will be killed off early in ep3. She is a terrible actress, how she made it this far (in TV) is beyond me.

    But if it is already headed in a direction and then something changes, by what mechanism does it return back? Like, if you went back 10 minutes and moved this pencil on the left side of my desk to the right, where is it when you return? Either it’s on the right, or some final-destination like bullshit happened and it just coincidentally got moved by someone else back to the left or something. I prefer to think the stone has some kind of timeline gravitational pull to it, and the whole line is re-absorbed into the ‘prime’. Then you don’t have to think about each individual situation resolving itself somehow, it just merges.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    Agreed. I do think they were important in each others life and I hope the show doesn't ignore that.

    Outcome of the Great War

    It would so help this argument (where do they go, what happens when they get there) if we know what the NK wants. Whatever it is, if it escapes Winterfell during the loss, then the NK will follow team heroes. Is what the NK wants a thing or a person? If a thing, what possible item would be in the crypts of Winterfell that is of immense significance to the NK. So far, we know he wanted a dragon, and he got one. That hints at the NK being a Targaryen, but only slightly. Any commander would want a dragon. However, if we let the NK be a Targaryen, then what is in WF that a Targaryen wants? For a different Targaryen, Dany, it is love - Jon. What is it for the NK - a lover, perhaps? Could it be dragon eggs? From the Wiki: The Testimony of Mushroom alleges that when Prince Jacaerys Velaryon came to Winterfell at the start of the Dance of the Dragons, Vermax laid dragon eggs in the depths of the crypts, where hot springs are near the walls. Archmaester Gyldayn rejects the idea.[11] If it is a person, then I give up. There are so many guesses on this forum that just about everyone has been named. If we do not answer this before the fall of WF, if the NK follows our heroes, then we can narrow the search down to one of them.

    Jon and Daenerys definitely will survive next episode. They are shown in the trailer at Dragonstone.

    Apparently he has it when he goes back to return the stones, I just didn’t notice.

    Why avoid a reunion between Sansa and Sandor?

    I couldn't care less about San-San shipping. I was hoping to see a Sansa-Sandor reunion because I believe that Sansa was a significant part of the Hound rediscovering his humanity. I'd also like to see Sansa express gratitude to him for trying to check Joffrey. On a human nonsexual level it makes sense that they meant something to each other.

    Any hope of you winning the argument with Haskins having a good career went out the window when Washington picked him. Everything they touch turns to shit.
