    Uhmmm , that could work but I am not so sure that the Northern people would be happy to find out that the NK has an ice dragon now. When they hear that the reason why they lost the dragon was because Daenerys didn't want to help Jon and the North unless they could convince Cersei to help and that why they went into that foolish mission then they would be even more worried about their leaders. I mean that mission was completely idiotic if you ask me. Reasons: 1) They have bothered to spend time to catch a WW and show to Cersei but they haven't bother to show it to them who are in the direct line of fire. 99.5% on them are trusting Jon's word but have never come across one. 2) Now there is an ice dragon that can potentially decimate their troops in seconds. How do you even manage to protect from it. 3) After all that waste of time and effort, Cersei is still not coming. Maybe for right now that part should be better to leave under wraps.

    When it comes to Jaime and Cersei this is my wish. When the WW take over WF and heads towards KL, Jaime gets there first and sees that Cersei is about to blow up KL with wildfire and just as he did with the Mad King, that he will kill Cersei (valongar) and stabs her in the heart so his sword (which I think is made in part of Ice from Ned) would become light bringer , the magical sword that will kill the NK. So Jaime would become Azor Ahai reincarnated, Jaime would the TPTWP and would vindicate his name. Then Jaime marries Brienne and they have beautiful babies. I know it is a long shot but it would hit all the prophesies on the spot. 🙂 I don't think that Cersei and Daenerys would ever meet again.

    5 seconds less of the joyride could have given us at least 30 second of Ghost. I am outraged about the fact that Ghost was not there, Jon hasn't asked about him or seemed to care, they used to be what Daenerys and her dragons are, connected by some kind of strange link. I know this season had to prioritize many scenes but I do think that D&D have made Ghost a disservice by making him expendable. I would have loved to see the reaction of Ghost to Dany's dragons, his reaction to Daenerys. They better not bring him back only on episode 3 to have him killed, that would piss me off.

    Ditto If anything good comes off the revelation of Jon's birth IMO would be the fact that (even though he doesn't want the Iron Throne) he could negotiate several things before he renounces his claim and marries Daenerys, one of those things should definitely be the North's independence. Rob died for it and it would be a great thing that would redeem Jon in my eyes. With an independent north, but allied with the Iron Throne via Jon's half Stark origins, the Starks for sure could have a much better relationship with Daenerys, provided that she is a fair queen and doesn't uses her dragons to burn more people. Maybe with enough time maybe they will become close to her as well. I also can care less about Jon and what he does in KL, I think he would be miserable but hey you get what you get. Other than that, Sansa at Lady of WF and Arya as Lady Baratheon, all the while with Bran as the 3ER. They would remain a pack and that is all that matters.

    She couldn't take the Iron Throne years ago because her dragons were not fully grown, she didn't have the ships to transport her army. She had to bid her time. If she had the ships she would have sailed to Westeros, Jorah had to talk her out of it on several occasions because they weren't ready. During that time she could have made herself familiar with the families and traditions of Westeros but that didn't happened. If it wasn't because Tyrion and Varys arrived looking for her, I am not sure what she would have done being that she had exiled Jorah and Barristan was dead. Unless it was behind doors, she didn't even know that Tyrion had to send Varys incognito to sweet talk Highgarden and Dorne into joining Daenerys, yet as of to date Daenerys has not (besides the North now) any other allied in the whole of Westeros. She is not really good into keeping allies, at least not in Westeros.

    I know this doesn't matter at all unless they defeat the AOTD but I do wonder if Jon marries Daenerys is he will ever be truly happy in KL, in the middle of that viper nest that his the Red Keep. Somehow I just can't see it but maybe he will do it for love.

    If she ever intends to be the Queen of Westeros then she needs to face the AOTD, sooner better than later. If it unfortunate that the North is first on the NK pathway, but without resistance, he eventually will conquer every place is Westeros collecting more dead bodies on his wake. I am sure this concept is hard for Dany to grasp but I hope that at least Tyrion has made her see this. At least Jon understood this and that is why he brought the wildings south of the wall. Imagine if Jon would have Daenerys attitude and would have try to force the wildings to bend the knee to secure passage through the wall? As a Lord Commander it was in his power to do this but he understood that he would just be making the AOTD stronger and much more difficult to defeat. I thought Jon's speech at the dragon pit was great, talking about how the dead are coming for everybody and not just the north.

    Exactly, this 1000!! It was bad enough that he bent the knee without asking anybody about it, but let's say for the sake of the argument that he needed to do that to secure the army and the dragons. The fact that she had sex with her only complicates things because now the question that Sansa asked is completely relevant, "Did you bend the knee to protect the north or because you love her? why even put himself in that position when he knows there is a massive war coming, couldn't he/they have waited a little longer just as to not rub it in everyone's face? The north remembers that Rob lost the north when he decided to follow his heart rather than duty, who can blame them if they think that this is Rob 2.0 move? If they are mad about Jon bending the knee can you imagine what would their reaction be when they find out they are a couple and he is a Targaryen too?

    I was also disappointed in Jon's reaction to Sam's news about his family WTF JON? I know that he has had to execute people, that some of his decisions have lead people to death, but this is your "brother" Sam, your best friend who is crying because he found out his brother had died a horrible death and you are still defending Daenerys? to his face? I hate when the hypocrisy is so blatant, wasn't Jon Snow who not only a season ago warned Dany about using her dragons and burning people and how if she did that, then she was no different from other megalomaniac rulers? and now that he is in love with her he is willing to justify all her actions? A nice, strong hug and some words of comfort for Sam would not have killed him. After he was calmed maybe try to justify or at least make him understand that right now was not the moment to create conflicts. I hate that the north/Starks/anyone who is not Daenerys basically has to shut their mouths and have no right to express their feelings at all just not to irritate the "Queen" because she might pack her toys and let them die. It sucks!!

    I felt for Sam, what a horrible way to learn of his brother's fate. I think at some point he was even trying to justify his father's death and said that "now that my brother of the lord, I might be able to visit again" just to learn that his brother was turned into crispy bacon as well. That is the moment Sam realized that Daenerys for all her beautiful exterior would not be any different from any power-hungry ruler that has come before her. She will break the wheel alright, she will create a new one made to her own specifications.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I always thought that Tyrion was the little brother but now I am more inclined to believe that it will be Jaime the one who will end up killing Cersei I know they are twins but does anyone know who was born first? If Cersei was then technically Jaime could be consider a younger brother. I would love for her to be jailed and have to witness the reign of another one "younger and prettier" but unfortunately Cersei will never give up, she will fight until her last breath to cause problems for the new ruler, in this case her death is the only possible way.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I do agree, IMO their child is the song of Ice and Fire. I am reading the books back from the first one so maybe my perception is based on the book that I just finished but in that first book Dany does promise Drago that they will be together again and that is why it stroke me hard seeing all the predictions that Dany will finally have a child. I don't think that Jon wants to rule the Iron Throne and honestly I think that he will for a very short while while he splits the kingdoms apart. Another possibility is that he rules as a regent until his son/daughter can became the ruler. Another one of the predictions on the house of the undying has Dany getting close to the Iron Throne but not sitting there so that is why I think that her demise/death will put and end to her claim. I never particularly thought of GOT as a romantic story. what always fascinated me was the politics involved in it and how wonderful George RR Martin is at creating all the AU that surrounds it, for me it was always about about how the small folk get dragged into this stupid wars and suffer the most no matter who rules. IMO based on the book and the TV series Danny is and will always be a conqueror not a ruler and I doubt that George RR Martin will put her in the throne at the end. Jon has never wanted power and that is why he would be the chosen ruler, the one who will put and end to all of this by splitting the kingdoms apart and retiring to live a simple life in some small place raising his child and just being happy to be a simple man. In an ideal world probably Jon and Danny will end up together ruling the Sven kingdoms with their children and happily ever after but I will be very surprised if that is that case because there are no happy endings in George RR Martin stories, just cautionary tales about power and greediness and the unintended consequences where no one is ever good or bad.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I am almost sure that Dany dies. I am tempted to place a bet on it on that site. In preparation for the last season I started rereading since book 1 because several interviews from various characters have mention things like "back to the beginnings" and Arya in an interview mentioned how everything was related back to season 1, so it was very interesting to read again about the children of the forest and how the Starks relate to them and also to the Night King but what actually caught my eye more than once is how Dany at different times promises Drogo (IMO the love of her life) that "when the sun sets...... and when her womb quickens and she has a living g child, they will be back together" , she mentions this at least three times and promises it to him before she puts the pillow on his face and also as she is lightning up his funeral pyre. I have read so many theories were it is almost a given that next season she will be pregnant with Jon's baby and she will actually have a baby that I couldn't but help to think that there was a reason why George RR Martin has put so much emphasis on her promise to Drogo. I am not sure how she is going to die but I think she will fulfill her promise to Drogo and reunite with him in the afterlife. I won't actually be upset about this ending because I honestly believe that they were a perfect couple and she knows that her baby will be loved and well taken care of by Jon. I figure this is the bittersweet ending that all of them have talked about. YMMV.
  14. I like sober Dorinda, I like Dorinda when she bonds with Carole over the memories of their dead husbands, I like her when she is hosting at her house, I like her when she is not with John. I do not like drunk Dorinda, her vulgar hand gestures, her loudness and her confrontational way. Cutting her hand on the Mexico trip put it all in perspective, she needs to lay down the booze. I do have faith that Dorinda after watching herself on the show and realizing how alcohol affects her interactions, that she will try to control her drinking, and then she can be nice Dorinda again. I have faith that it might happen. The problem that Luann faces is not just her drinking, not at all. The problem that Luann has is her arrogance to recognize when she is being patronizing and condescending. I am not sure at all that rehab can take care of that. I am also not sure that Luann think that is a problem at all.
  15. The centers that her insurance can cover are probably not up to her Countess standards. I can't even imagine Luann socializing with the "plebe" The rehab center that Luann would go would be in the likes of the very expensive ones so if she wants those she will have to pay out of pocket. Not sure about her financial situation but I am assuming that for her children's sake the Count might be footing the bill.
