    That's exactly what happened. There are ships flying the banners of Dorne and Highgarden alongside the ships from the Iron Islands and Dany's ships. So, they stopped in Dorne and are now sailing to Casterly Rock.


    Yes. That's where the closest tree is. When he first joined the Watch, the Lord Commander asked if there was anyone who kept the Old Gods because they'd have ride north of the Wall to take their oath.

    I'm thinking the R part of the R + L = J might not be confirmed until Jon takes the business side of a fire breathing dragon and nothing happens.

    Supposedly it's been said that being fire proof is a Dany thing, not a Targaryen thing, but still, I think this would be cool.

    I expect that if it's not fully clear now it will be as we will probably get more flashbacks so Sean Bean can get some work.

    Lady Mormont gets sh*t done!

    Arya is straight up gangsta although baking the Frey boys into a pie was something out of a Grimm's fairy tale.

    I wonder if the people declaring Jon king of the north know how stupid he was as a battle commander.

    Are all the Lannister kids dead now?

    Benjen can't go past the wall but he could have given Bran and Whatshername a horse or called the North's equivalent of a taxi instead of just dumping them on the side of the road.

    I expected Jaime to kill the Freys.

    Poor Loras couldn't catch a break. He had his forehead carved right before getting blowed up.

    So, when Lyanne said "Robert will kill him" she was referring to Robert Barratheon ?

    This was quite the episode!

    Anya's scene was fantastic, and I wonder if her doing the "face trick" means that she's still somewhat associated with the he Faceless G-d. Did she just bring one face? Did she bring more? Will we see her again as another character?

    Cersei blowing up The Sept was inevitable, but the way it was shown, there were options of either that dude blowing out the candles, or Maergery getting people out, to make the explosion less effective.

    I do wonder, though, with the supposed fire power of Wild Fyre, how the blast could be so contained.

    There is no other Robert mentioned in 7 seasons of Game of Thrones, that I recall.

    Where's Gendry? Not that he matters anymore for proving pedigree of Tommen, and Dany is going to make the question of rightful heir moot, but in the meantime, he has as good a claim to the throne as Cersei.

    I think it's becoming inevitable that Jaime will be the one to end Cercei. He killed the first guy who tried to burn up the city, and Cercei actually carried it out. And she is directly responsible for Tommen's death.

    I think it's some Targaryens and Jon is going to be on that list.

    Lady Mormont owned it.

    Yes. Which makes Cercei phenomenally dangerous. As Tyrion said (paraphrased) her only redeeming quality is her love for her children.

    Yes. And that she cared means she was a willing participant, not kidnapped and raped.

    Now the question is: were they married? Is Jon not a bastard after all?



    I think last we saw was him staying with the Brotherhood Without Banners in season 3. I think he's going to show up again.

    As for R+L=J, who else could it be other than Rhaegar? She was under the Kingsguard protection so that wipes out any ridiculous theory that she was kidnapped by someone else. The only thing we don't know is whether the two had actually gotten married (Rhaegar already had a wife but, who knows what "rules" Targaryens may have had in that regard). There must be a maester around, somewhere, who would have performed the ceremony.

    I don't think anyone thinks the father is anyone else, just that it hadn't been confirmed (like the mother has) and that Bran may not know.

    Pretty sure Mel came and took him from the Brotherhood back to Dragonstone. This was when she told Arya that they would meet again.

    Last we saw of Gendry was him rowing a boat after Davos helped him escape.

    Did he end up back with the Brotherhood after that?

    Jon is not fireproof. See season 1 where he burned his hand killing the dead wight.

    I would argue against that. She was defending herself...the High Squirrel was using Tommen to kill Cersei (how do you think her trial was meant to end?), and she counter-played him (rather excessively, true, but still). I think Tommen may have realized what his actions had led to, and couldn't take it.

    Not that he was a mustachio-twirling villain; just a complete idiot who allowed himself to be manipulated, and had no clue he was being used to judicially murder his own mother. I suspect at that moment he realized that because of what the High Squirrel tricked him into doing, something terrible was going to have happened one way or the other. (Ironically, I think that if the Squirrel's plan had worked, Tommen would have balked and turned against him rather than see his mother executed, which makes Cersei's action unnecessary...)

    That's how I saw his suicide, anyway...

    Ah, my bad. I'm only half way through S3 on my rewatch.

    Good catch.

    Plus Cersei constantly underestimated his allegiance to Margary. Losing her was also a huge blow.

    Maybe because her only love was Jaime she can't understand how someone could be so devoted to their spouse. She never saw his suicide coming.
