    This. She was very much surprised when she saw him. They do share a link or he wouldn't have known to come but it isn't a conscious one. Now that they have gone off together, they can work on that.

    Even though it has now been stated that she wasn't summoning him, I still see no reason why it wasn't as plausible that she was trying to summon him and that was lurking near by (we've seen him be close to her recently when she had no idea). It didn't mean she warped him from afar. And she could have still been surprised that he actually came when she summoned him as it would have been completely unexpected.

    All I'm saying is the scene was really interpretable either way.

    I saw it as her preparing to die and I'm equally stunned by those that didn't see it that way :)

    I saw it both ways, both possibilities ran through my head near simultaneously, as well as the possibility that she was actually doing both, preparing to die but as a last ditch trying to summon Drogon.

    Maybe they will take the approach that was used in "Dead Like Me" and "Quantum Leap" where we would see Maisie most of the time but an occasional glimpse of the new face such as when looking in a mirror.

    Although kinda wrong...the way it's phrased, either fewer (if "three weeks" is taken as a certain number of weeks) or less (if it's taken as a block of time) would work...

    (OK, maybe Stannis and I have more in common than I would like...)

    From wikipedia:

    In addition, "less" is recommended in front of counting nouns that denote distance, amount, or time. For example, "we go on holiday in fewer than four weeks" and "he can run the 100 m in fewer than ten seconds" are not advised.

    Which makes it even wronger (although not totally wrong..."recommended" and "not advised"...by Wikipedia!).

    In the original, if she were referring to a specific number of weeks that could be three, or two, or one, then fewer would be appropriate. But I'm sorry, Stannis...in context, it doesn't seem she meant that. ;)
