    After last night's episode, I've never been more convinced of the backbone of the Bran is the Night King theory.

    The director painted a great picture of the impending doom without the army breaking. That was a classic scene. Any idea what, if anything, happened to Randall Tarly during that fight? Last I saw he was ordering his troops to get ready and then I don't remember seeing him again.

    We got no real confirmation of him either way, which leads me to believe he's alive. I think he'll probably play an important role in next week's episode given the preview that shows Daenerys speaking to the living Lannister troops on the field demanding their fealty. I can see someone like Tarly serving as a fine example of the price they'll pay should they refuse.



    I also think the Drogon-Jon showdown might be our first real step at revealing Jon's true family lineage. It's not as though the show hasn't been dropping hilariously obvious hints at it, like Drogon roaring and flying over his head as he arrived at Dragonstone moments after telling Tyrion "I'm not a Stark..."

    Didn't they show how the Night King was made by the children of the Forrest? I think Bran is an annoying useless character that adds nothing. Kinda fuckin hate him.

    Thought the acting from both the Stark sisters was pretty shitty when they meet. I know they aren't fond of each other, but it was a lame scene that went through the motions.

    The dragon shit was awesome. But thanks to cablevision, it was choppy and fucked up when it airedlive. Seems to be their new thing. Come 9:20 ish on Sunday, HBO gets all fucked up. Yayyyy.

    Yes. I suggest reading the link I posted for the evidence behind the theory. Bran may be annoying, but he's going to be critical to the close of the series.

    Watching Arya sneak in felt like taken out of Pirates of the Caribbean, with 2 stupid Guards to complete it. Them re-uniting was a bit stiff, but up to par for most Dialogue this season.

    Also Arya vs. Brienne was the female training fight version of Oberyn vs. The Moutain. I appreciate that they allowed Brienne to have a tie.

    edit Spoiler just for size of the pic. Not actually a Spoiler, if you've seen this weeks episode.

    I don't see how he can be two people in the same timeline. He could BECOME the Night King. But if he did, then can't he just stop the war?

    It depends entirely on how the series chooses to handle the concept of time loop paradoxes.

    If they don't want to encroach too dangerously on that, they can simply make him responsible for the creation of the Night King as a result of his spending too much time green seeing in the past while whispering to various characters (namely the First Man who the Children turned into the Night King).

    I'm effect, his whispers, as we think we saw with Hodor, might drive people mad. Perhaps the Children will/did kill that First Man because of his ramblings about the Night King he eventually becomes.

    Honestly, him warging into Hodor in the past, is already my limit of time-travel Paradoxon for this series.

    Also, thank you, Gilly for the confirmation! Now Sam, who appears headed back to the Wall, is armed with knowledge he isn't even aware of the impact of.

    Dany being all "bend the knee or get burned" sure isn't re-assuring of how she might rule.

    Meanwhile I am hoping that Baelish is finally overplaying his hand. He should be, at least if Sansa has finally learned something from the things that happened to her, which all have their roots in Baelishs actions to begin wit.

    I can see Sansa playing along with Little Finger's own dagger getting used to kill him. Or should I say Rhaegar's dagger?

    Apparently it was the message Sansa was forced to send after Ned Stark was killed. So Bealish is trying to deepen Aryas trust issues, not Sansas. Maybe Bran can be usefull for once this season and prevent it.

    On both accounts. But that's not clairvoyance. Much of this isn't difficult to discern.

    Here's my next prediction, though it's admittedly originally from AmericanJesus -- Jorah is the Wight that will be brought back to Dragonstone to convince Dany of the Army of the Dead (end Dave's prediction). And it will heartbreakingly and unequivocally convince her of the righteousness of the cause, giving Cersei momentary reprieve until next season.

    Anybody sense a bit of jealousy from Jorah against Jon? I see a betrayal coming or almost coming.

    I just started this show. Does this little blonde shithead get what he deserves?
    Or will I have to deal with this insufferable cunt for the next several seasons?

    I don't give a fuck about spoilers, so by all means, lmk.

    Couldn't have put it better myself. I love the sheer hatred, and for that reason alone I'm not spoiling it for you, sorry!
