    Obviously, I love the banter and and hair-brained conspiracy theories. I find shows much more enjoyable with the painful, week-long delays.

    Lost was a fun one with y'all. What a goofy show that turned out to be.

    I'm wondering if the ships have any value left though. Killing the men would help for sure, but not sure the ships will/can be used in the battle any more. Then again, a bit of revenge and weakening of the enemy is good stuff for sure.

    Of course I don't know the layout of Kings Landing very well. Perhaps they can fire on Dany & Jon from the harbor.

    Do we know that Bran can see anything he wants or do his visions just come randomly. I mean, can you just ask Bran to tell you ANYTHING? I'm guessing no.

    Absolutely. Example: When Sam told him about the wedding that makes Jon a legit child and not a bastard, Bran simply went there and saw for himself.

    He can also warg into ravens anywhere and send them flying where he wants them to go and see what they see. We have also seen him warg into a Direwolf and Hodor.

    Although he's could possibly be a treasure trove of information, Bran is so boring that I'm glad they're not wasting screen time on him. Does Bras as the TER already know how all this is going to play out?

    Personally, I like reading all of the fan theories. I think they're fun and interesting. What bugs me are all the literary geniuses who complain about the decline in quality once the tv show went past the books. I assume the show writers are working from an outline directly from GRRM. Frankly, he had one job to do - finish the books - and didn't do it. If he didn't give the tv show runners detailed notes on how things should work out, then that's on him too. I don't know who decided the show would end this truncated season. Whether it was HBO, the writers or the actors just plain got tired of it after ten years, the hard stop is the reason why events are suddenly careening sometimes illogically and characters are behaving out of character. If you're unhappy, it's Martin's fault.

    I have a feeling I'm not going to be happy with the ending. Not because of the show quality but because I'm probably not going to get the fairy tale ending I want - Dany on the iron throne having inbred mongoloid children with Jon.

    He seems to know a lot that no one else knows. He visited a lot of events from the past that we saw. I assume there are more.

    He is supposed to be the History of the World, right? NK wanted him gone -- I assume because he knows stuff. I could be wrong.

    EDIT: And what Anubys said above.

    LittleFinger seemed to know about Raegar and Lyanna. He hinted at it many times. So it surprises me that Varys had no clue.

    I like the line "it's no longer a secret. It's information" once the count of who knows it became 8 :D

    BTW, Daenerys also has green eyes.


    My Guess: After defeating Cersei, Daenarys is having Jon executed Ned-style. This time, Arya can stop it.

    Sure, the overall experience of being a viewer is greatly enhanced for shows like this by water cooler talk and forums, etc. Actual enjoyment of the episode itself was more my point. Like, if I could skip to the next episode after last week I wouldn't have had time to digest and come to have a deep, burning hatred for aspects of the episode.

    Nope they are super blue.

    EDITED: ARE THEY NOT? I just looked it up and they look like a combination of blue with brown center but ever fact page says they are green. Wow.

    Watching Jaime talk to Brienne again. He recounts evil things he did or would've done for Cersei. He ends it by saying Cersei is hateful and so is he.

    That, to me, leaves no doubt that he has decided that Cersei is the source of evil and that he is now going to stop her. Not saying he will be the one to do it, only that he intends to try.

    And let's not forget that Bronn already told he was sent there to kill both him and Tyrion.

    Replying to myself lol but I'm so confused. Everything online says Emilia has green eyes but is this not blue with brown centers?

    I honestly don't see it that way but I'm more than happy to be wrong. I like your version better than mine!
