Anyone else feel that it’s sort of weird that they’ve announced it is Michonne’s last season, but we’ve hardly seen her at all?

Arya was not on the run from the House of B&W after she ‘settled’ with the other girl and left that girl’s face in their collection.  She faced the leader (who looked like Jaqen, but that’s just an affectation for our understanding or hers, I guess), and it’s pretty clear they came to an understanding that she was Read more

He asked if Bronn considered HIS debts paid--i.e. Tyrion’s claim to always ‘double’ what someone else offered.  In this case, Bronn not only got Highgarden, he got The Reach (which Grey Worm turned down).

Sansa’s gown at the end had the red leaves from the heart tree in the sleeves--I’m pretty sure that’s a firm vote for the Old Gods holding dominion.

Cause by Dothraki law when you kill a Khal, you get his stuff. Jon killed Dany, so he got her khalasar and didn’t want them running around butchering people, Read more

If they are smart mercenaries, they demand payment in advance.  (History is littered with bad mercenary agreements--on both sides.)

1. Out of curiosity, are all the folks asking for the ins and outs of Qyburn’s work on the Mountain as demanding of Frankenstein? Cause . . . we get very little of the ‘factual’ process in either books or movies there. Read more

They are doing wolf things like running down weak or injured creatures (much larger ones than a usual wolf pack would since Nymeria is huge) and breeding NEW wolves to fill out the pack.

Maybe no one since he didn’t have any ravens and they came to arrest him before he’d finished.

I’m sorry, but there’s a really easy answer to your number 1 question: maybe Dany is NOT the main protagonist. It’s possible she’s always been intended to simply be another antagonist. (Or, if you insist on her role being the main protagonist, do not forget one of the major conflicts a protagonist can face is ‘person Read more

NOTHING happened to Hot Pie after being bargained off to the innkeeper.  We saw him several times doing what he did best--making HOT PIES and talking endlessly about them, while occasionally passing on a critical piece of gossip from what appears to be the ONLY crossroads in the Riverlands.

It’s gross to think, but the wights were sort of zombies, so maybe all the actual white walkers ate one or more of the babies to retain their semi-sentience rather than just be wights, and having blue eyes first made the kids taste better? Read more

I suspect that most of the “it’s too rushed” complaints will fall to the wayside when GoT is only binge watched.  The nature of that beast already condenses the experience of a piece in the first place.

There WAS a meet up between Nymeria and Arya while Arya was on her way back to Winterfell.  Arya said something about going home to Winterfell and wanted Nymeria to go with her--Nymeria looked around at her pack and basically said, “Nope, got my own gig” to which Arya said, “That’s not you” and accepted it.

If you look, Sam has a very small chain, but I believe the largest link in it is black—perhaps that’s a signal he earned his “Knowledge: White Walker” link to go with the one for “Healing Greyscale.”

I’m not excusing his delays, but . . . as someone who has taught writing for more than thirty years, I can tell you that there are a number of ways writer’s block can manifest itself, and the sort of endless cycling and re-thinking he uses to create in the first place just sort of lends itself to creating blocks. That Read more

^this, plus most of them WERE there out of loyalty to the Starks. Seriously, did no one but me count the number of Stark loyalists aligned around that gathering?

And presumably, even if she survived Cersei’s vengeance and Dany dropping the Castle on her, the “NEW” Dorne prince probably wouldn’t have been that happy to see her alive . . . so assuming she’s dead--one way or the other--is a safe assumption.

Even though it was not commented upon, time was passing. It just wasn’t commented upon. It took time for Jon to go to Dragonstone. It took time for them to go North of the Wall. It took time for Jon, Dany, and crew to go down to King’s Landing and show off the wight and get lied to by Cersei. It took time for the Read more
