Alt Shift X so no more video wrap ups? Just live feed of Q and A? Why? It’s impossible to participate. This is the single greatest web-site, but you’re turning it into a podcast. Am I out of line or do others feel the same? Peace, and many blessings.

Fine, but for the rest of us, please leave your superior wrap ups. These live streams are too confusing. Way too many people raising their hands at once. And the other half fooling around. In the meantime, please get Jamie a dragon stone hand for the battle. Peace

great vid i know your trying not to be to critical in these but I have to admit it seems a little weird when you take the time to point out Sansa mentioning food as a problem but not that they don't ever bring it up again or that deanery's says the dragons aren't doing well and can't get enough to eat despite clearly having just eaten and showing no sign's of any issues outside of her comment . Or the fact that you even talk about how in the lore of the book dragon's can't go beyond the wall a plot point the show totally shit on by having Dany save jhon with her dragons beyond the wall. There is a lot wrong with this season and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about don't be afraid to bring it up

I actually come closer to believing the show will end with the story being told, by probably Sam, like some have guessed, because the intro reflects this device suspended above in the citadel, whose maesters write down and keep history. The device displays history, which indicates each episode is a chapter of the story being told. That story could be told by anyone, but I think it will be Sam, because he mentions writing down history, while at the citadel, in the scene where he responds to the grand maesters work not being poetic. Game of Thrones as a title, is rather poetic. Something Sam would most likely title his book of history.

My theory is that the crystal that turned the Night King into the Night King is still around and will play a role in the next 3 episodes. I don't see why it wouldn't still exist, kind of a plot hole if it doesn't.

12:17- Or the true head of the Iron Bank is actually a dwarf like Tyrion- having heard of Cersei's own mistreatment of her brother and the execution of dwarfs in general; thus denies her out of justified anger.
Cersei could ask the Night King for undead mammoths, but that's not as likely- though it is the closest that she'll ever get to having pachyderms.

As a kid we always welcomed tomboys. This was in the 90's. We never looked at them as much different from the other girls other than maybe they were cooler because they like the things we like. It was just one more body for any teams that we were putting together. The people that gave them the hardest time were OTHER FEMALES and they could be brutal. It's just like the myth that all men talk about are boobs and sex. I've never had a conversation with any male friend about either of those that lasted longer than a couple of minutes. Women on the other hand obsess over those things and project that obsession onto males. This narrative that's been out there for so long is bogus and old.

AVeryHappyFish - 22 dagar sedan
I really hope that Jon is not Azor Ahai! Not yet another man being the chosen one, please. I hope that there won't be an Azor Ahai at all and it turns out to be a delusional prophecy borne of false visions, misinterpretation, and confusion. GoT is very realistic, both psychologically and in the ways of its world, that's why we (or at least I) love it. If it degrades itself to an appearance of a reincarnated savior of the world who single-handedly changes the fate of everything and everyone, even that savior being female won't sweeten the bitter pill much. I hope for something very different. There are no destined heroes in real life, no saviors, no chosen ones, no easy solutions. That said, I do expect from the show writers to write the most banal and juvenile ending, so I won't be surprised if that's exactly what they're going to do.

Dude, I love your videos, but if Jon is half Stark half Targaryen, doesn't that mean that Sansa and Arya are Half Stark and Half Tully? No one is a full Stark, they don't do incest.
AC4X - 11 dagar sedan
You clearly missed the point, which was about bloodlines, not surnames. Jon has Stark and Targaryen blood, binding him to both families/houses. Just like Sansa has Stark and Tully blood, as you pointed out, which is why the Vale came to her aid at the Battle of the Bastards.
Nico Meins
Nico Meins - 21 dag sedan
Damian P this is about marriage and not incest as far as i know. Ned and Catelyn married before they had their kids, as it was meant to be back then. Sex or child’s before marriage where a great dishonor. With the marriage, Cate gets to be a official Stark since the wife takes on the name/house of the her husband (that’s why ppl tried to get their daughters married into great houses, bc they take the name then). That’s why Arya (<3) and Sansa are fully Stark. Cate also got called Catelyn Stark in the show, if you guys remember.

Tyrion's problem is that he's lost one of the core pillars of his identity. he drinks and he knows things. and depending on how you read that, it could very well be interpreted as "he drinks therefore he knows things"

it is mind boggling how people are not talking about any of the magic shit is going down. It was this huge build up in earlier seasons how we the audience could see magic and the characters kept on saying it was all folclore and long gone.
And here we are, where no one gives a wink to any of the news.
Resurrection, meh, the wall has fallen, meh, bran can see the past, meh, Dragons in the north, meh, one dragon is a zombie, meh. - we are way more affected by any of this than any of the people living it in the series.

+nd4spd is 6 eps because they didnt want to do 10. The "complainers" are people that invested themselves into a project that is now rushing towards the end and the show runners accumulated the biggest budget in the world fpr a tv series get to just shrug everythin off at the conclusion. Its funny how they had no issues in collecting all those awards because the "complainers" bought merch, promotes the show, voted for them. I feel cheated of a great ending cause mainstream consumers just don't care about plot and love watching "Transformers" style """epic""" battles, and "Fast and Furious" dragon riding and the writes just wanna collect them checks and fuck off.
nd4spd - 7 dagar sedan
They've got 6 eps, they don't have time for that. Honestly, I have no idea what 99% of complainers were expecting. More whole seasons of complex and detailed plotting?! Get real, the show is over, just enjoy it for what it is.

Cersei choosing Bronn to kill Tyrion and Jaime is probably one of the worst cases of the show making characters dumb for the sake of Drama. First of all, his relationships with the two majorly compromises the mission. Second, Bronn is a sellsword not an assassin, there would be better people for the job. He could maybe get close to Tyrion but that wouldn't be worth the risk of him just switching sides.
