    They would say that the Lord of Light has chosen him and is now showing him things.

    Have the dragons been seen/mentioned by anyone from Westeros yet? I guess it won't be long now, but I don't recall them being mentioned as a threat to be dealt with.

    I'm not sure anybody's aware Danaerys has landed yet. Jaime and Cersei knew she was on the way and were speculating on where she would land, but that's about it, isn't it? And since she landed on an uninhabited island, it stands to reason nobody will know until she makes her move (whatever that turns out to be).

    Cersei did know that Danaerys was heading across to Westeros though. Given that level of intelligence, the dragons probably aren't a secret. Whatever spies are reporting in probably didn't forget to mention, "oh yeah, she controls 3 huge dragons, and they're heading your way too."

    The dragons have been mentioned in King's Landing many times, pretty sure the small council discussed them in the season following their appearance.

    Am I misremembering or were they mentioned in the most recent episode?

    He's talking about a text message shown on the character's phone.

    I have the time. What I'm lacking is the inclination.

    It seemed to me that at the end of last season The Masters didn't realize they were THAT big. I think when the thought they were about to be back in charge, they said to go fetch and kill them, which obviously wasn't going to happen.

    Maybe other people are the same, even if they know they are out there, they don't realize just how big they are.

    Where no longer following the books, the writers of the show are doing it all on their own.

    It is, but report are that it crash in some part of the country. DriectTV Now also crash big time with all channel down. HBO servers could not keep up with the demand.

    We're not following the books anymore, but the writers aren't just making it all up. They've consulted with GRRM and he's provided them a basic outline so they know what plot points they have to hit.

    ah, that makes sense. We do know there is at least one way to halt the progression of the disease given that Shireen's was halted. We also know her father Stannis tried numerous "cures." Here's hoping Jorah gets help soon because he was looking awfully crusty....

    I did not think that. Seems too low key.

    Stannis also saw things in the fire, I believe. The Lord of Light shows people things when he needs them to "believe", I guess. It seems that Clegane and his band of merry men need to go help...argh...what's his name? the Wilding guy who loves Brienne to defend the Castle.

    That was a strange thing - the island being uninhabited. Here's this great castle and no homeless people take advantage? why?

    Or maybe it's the priests who show people what they (the priests) think they need to believe?

    Stannis seemed to see not what was true, but what Melisandre wanted to be true. Maybe Thoros is doing the same for the Mutt?
    Probably because there's nothing there. The only way you could survive is by having peasants on the mainland growing food for you, and sea-truckers to bring it to you...

    Unless I'm being zoomed, he is talking about reading text messages on phones on the screen.

    You didn't see him looking in the flames and seeing things? They didn't show what he saw but he described The Wall.
