    Every generation has a king slayer.

    This generation's king slayer is Arya and she will get revenge for the destruction she saw with her own eyes. The Lord of Light accepts sacrifices but not wanton slaughter.

    Jon Snow (aka, Aegon Targaryen) will sit on the Iron Throne.

    Why will Drogon NOT kill him? Because Drogon already knows he's a Targaryen. And with Drogon behind him both the Unsullied and the Dothraki will bend the knee. Otherwise why did the Red Priestess resurrect him?

    The reluctant HERO, becomes the KING.

    The end.

    I don't see Arya as the type who would kill Dany for this. I might be wrong.

    She didn't like it, and she doesn't approve of it. But not sure she would take it upon herself to kill Dany.

    Arya went to Kings landing to kill the Queen, I think she will succeed.

    Yeah, because that queen killed her dad.

    I don't think she's adding people to her list at this time. I could be wrong.

    I meant the down time. They had time to prepare.

    This is why I think that for a "happy ending", it has to be Arya (or someone else) who kills Dany, not Jon or even on Jon's bidding. If Jon was involved in her death, Drogon would never accept him. And having a rogue dragon on the loose isn't going to make anyone happy.

    I now think Dany kills Jon, and then Arya kills Dany.

    Sure, okay, I'm talking in circles. But I'm betting most folks understand that rewrites and reshoots are quite common in production, even after picture lock.....

    I happened to rewatch the Battle of Blackwater episode on Saturday, so this made me laugh when Tyrion kept talking about the bells.

    That would certainly be motivation for Arya. And I do suspect (and have) that Dany wants Jon dead. Certainly now after he wouldn't spoon with her.

    This. The entire season is rushed.

    Yes, but HBO didn't rush the show-runners. The show-runners rushed it themselves.

    CGI fire and explosions must be significantly cheaper than CGI Direwolf fur.

    The amount of time we spent with her and the innocents makes me think otherwise. I don't think Arya will want her as queen, and with Jon having the better claim to the throne, and Danny not going to give it to him, the only question is who will kill Danny, and I feel it will be Arya.

    I can't believe I didn't think of this (stick with me): Varys never cared about himself. All he cared about was the good of the Realm. Would he let something like his death stop him?

    Heck no. Varys would have set things up so the great reward for the little kitchen bird would still be paid even after his death.

    You heard it here first: Dany will die via poison from Varys' little birds. He would have made sure of it. Take it to the bank!

    Except that someone here already said it. :)

    I like this as "reasonable" more than any other way Dany dies. It would make sense that someone carries out Varys' wishes and does so with more determination after hearing he was rotisseried.

    Maybe they do a "Murder on the Orient Express" and everyone murders Dany. Spoilers!!!

    I wonder how next week's finale will play out... Are we done with the action, and now will move to more dramatic scenes (including more "personal" assassinations)? I have to believe that the action is done... Next week will need to use every bit of those final 80 minutes to wrap up the storylines and arcs of all these characters... 80 minutes is not a lot of time, right? It's gonna be tight...

    They really should pay more attention to their "Inside the Episode" segments, too. It really makes them seem like they haven't thought things through.

    Last week was the whole "Dany forgot about the Iron Fleet" comment.

    This week, one of them talks about the tendency for a show like this to focus on the heroic characters, but they really wanted to keep the perspective on the ground while Dany rains hell from above - because those are the people paying the price. Just a few minutes later, the other one (I always forget which is which) says they decided to focus on Arya because if all they did was show a bunch of extras getting burned, you wouldn't care as much...
