    How do dragons fare when you catapult barrels of wildfire at them?

    Probably extremely difficult to hit a fast and irregularly moving target like a dragon with a not-easily-repositionable catapult. But even so it's probably irrelevant some a certain someone may have used up all of the wildfire (unless there were multiple storage locations spread across kings landing).

    They'd probably bask in the fire, enjoying it..

    How accurate could those barrels be aimed, where is the wildfire coming from, and do we know if the dragons have anti-barrel defense mechanisms built-in (aka shoot fire at them while the barrels are heading their way, causing them to explode)?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure dragons are fireproof.

    I guess the only chance to hurt a flying dragon would be to launch "chaff" in their likely path -- sharp bits of metal or stone that could hole their wings.

    I have a mental image of them trying to hit a dragon with a barrel, miss, and the barrel comes down on them. :eek: :)

    I agree. I thought it was horribly unGOT

    Plus Ed Sheeran is better cast as a hobbit.

    Is it possible the gathering was in place before Arya killed him? If so all she had to do was poison the wine which seems easy enough.

    (I was hoping for a Princess Bride reference myself ;))

    It's possible, but as stated on the show was very out of character so it is much more likely she orchestrated it.

    i just finished reading the thread, and didn't see anyone else answer - i assumed he's following dany's advice to find a greyscale cure, and has turned to the maestors at the citadel. there are online predictions from viewers who noticed this in the premier (tv guide):

    Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere may have just revealed the answer to a major mystery without many fans even noticing.

    While Sam (John Bradley) was flipping through books at the Citadel, one page seemed to reveal a possible cure for Jorah's (Iain Glen) greyscale. As pointed out by a Reddit user StormSS, one of the pages appeared to hint at dragonglass as a potential cure for the debilitating disease.

    Although not all the words on the page are legible, the words "stone," "dragonglass," "cure" and "ingestion" are clear. That's lead some fans to assume this text details a folk remedy of ingesting dragonglass as a low-risk way to cure greyscale. But before you get your hopes up, the text also seems to indicate that this isn't necessarily a reliable cure, appearing to say that the diseased person's money would be "better spent on practical treatments."

    I was imagining where she'd get all the poison, mix it into the wine, get the wine into 20 pitchers, keep those safe until needed, etc.

    So yes, I just suspended disbelief on the whole thing. I can imagine a lot of "Walder is acting especially weird" statements from family and staff.

    The magic of the Many-Faced God is that you become whoever's face you are wearing. I never assumed that it's just the face that changed. We've seen this before, I believe as her teacher was a much shorter black old man; for example. So I wasn't surprised.

    And in a world like GoT; where someone like Walder is unquestioned and unchallenged; I have no problem believing that Arya could pose as him for as long as she liked.

    Who the hell has this much time on their hands to be able to walk through the episode frame by frame and read each page?

    i guess it depends on, yes, time, combined with a desire to look for hidden clues, along with the attention to detail by the producers.

    in a world where we're now routinely expected to (seemingly, endlessly) read text messages on phones during shows, i don't see it as that far a stretch. in previous seasons of got i've paused to read raven messages, and that olde english print isn't always easy to decipher. i even paused to read the headlines and stories of the daily prophet in harry potter films.

    Well, it's not the whole episode - just a brief bit that showed the book pages.

    Did anyone else suspect that topknot guy might actually BE the Lord of Light? He's the one that performs the resurrection ceremony. Maybe the "Someone special" isn't the High Priest. And it was strange how the Hound became psychic.

    Say what? I usually mute my phone and leave it on the computer desk while I'm watching TV. What am I missing?
