Hasn’t his side won every battle he’s been in. Lately for sure.
The best end for Jon will be to take Aemon's place in the cycle of history. Guy who refused the throne, possibly leading to horrific events, hanging out on the wall, mostly forgotten eventually.
We shall see!
Jon Snow would have made as much or more sense than Arya. Same with Tyrion. They were both die-hard Dany supporters, participants in the battle, well positioned to see the effect of her actions (and to an extent the result of their own support), and capable of putting a human reaction to it.
I think Arya has a new queen to kill.
But there's no point in the wall anymore is there? Is there even a Night's Watch now? What would be the point of it?
Well said. We shall see. I will probably be wrong.
We did see the horror through Jon, but certainly not as much as we did through Arya. Jon seemed to be in more fighting areas than Arya. Tyrion shows us too, but he doesn't run well and wasn't as far inside the city walls.
There was that one scene where I think many of us feared Arya was going to take a Dothraki sword in the back.
How many people believed in the White Walkers at the start of this series? Perhaps the wall was more about keeping the wildlings out.
I had a few moments like that as well watching. This still remains a series where almost anything could happen at any time.
Oooookay and still my questions are valid. They are no longer at war with the wildlings either so what's the point of it now?
I agree. He's more likely to go back to Winterfell and open up a tavern.
This is probably not fair, because there's only so much you can do while answering a question you can't answer, but... (It's clips of GoT actors being asked what they think of the finalé, and giving the impression they might not be entirely thrilled)
There was barely a point before. Anyway if not the wall something roughly equivalent.
Human nature says they will be at war again soon. The wildlings are raiders aren't they? I see everyone pretty much going back to their old ways now that the common threat has gone away.
But they were only raiders because they were being forced into the lands of always winter. Now that they are allowed to roam freely will that continue?
There was some funny in there.
But honestly, they could have 60 minutes of riding horses and eating turkey legs and not a single viewer would tune out.
They didn’t seem to like the warm weather at winterfell
Oh, Good Lord, what will we do.......????? (Psst - I think we'll find something....)
My most ridiculous hope is that someone will create a new Night King with all that dragon glass out of disgust for humanity. But it’s unlikely. I can’t have all the fun endings I want.
Agreed. And I wonder how much of that is just having detailed source outlines vs completed source material? While I admired how they took dense, sometimes complex source material and brought it to life so well on the small screen, I think that once they eclipsed the books, overall writing seemed to suffer for it. Nothing I could put my finger on to say “that’s not how Martin would’ve blah blah blah”, but just felt not quite the same.
I mean, I can easily imagine that what we watch in this season will feel like a Cliff Notes version if/when stories are published (whereas I didn’t feel that way about earlier seasons in how they relate/compare to the books).
You are absolutely right. I don't even understand why this is a debate. The Wall was infused with magic to stop the white walkers. The Wildlings were just people trapped north of the wall when it was put up and raided "the south" since they were not bound by the laws of people who lived there. Now they have made peace and fought with them. The Wall and the Night Watch are no longer needed.
I notice on the second viewing that the Iron Fleet ships were much easier to destroy than the ships from the masters of Yunkai. Drogon could only light those ships on fire while the Iron Fleet ships exploded and split in half.
