Advertisements Agreed. The King doesnt select the Lord Commander. And John's watch ended once before. I also agree that he was heading North to live his life there where the cold climate will give him a reason to pout and brood all of the time. Once G-Worm and the seemingly endless Unsullied army left town why not bring John back? "We were only kidding Aegon, come back." That probably keeps the Nort in the 7 kingdoms and Bran can be the Master of Whispers since he can hack into the past and see/hear conversations. How did Sam get to be the Grand Maester? Nice shoe horning of the book series title into the finale. Why did Sansa feel the need to tell everyone Bran's peeper was broken as well? THanks sis!.
