    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Also, do we know if either of these two leakers are still associated with the show for Season 8? (Because if they are, I imagine it's pretty likely they will leak again.) To be honest, I liked the level of spoilage for Season 6. It gave me little nuggets to speculate about. But I didn't like knowing every beat of every episode for season 7, so if we get that level of detail again, I'll go 100% spoiler-free to avoid knowing.

    Endgame Discussion and Speculation

    I think Jon is doomed. I agree with the idea floating around on the interwebs that he is the Lightbringer of the prophecy, the "flaming sword" forged by Rhaegar (who was the Prince Who Was Promised/Azor Ahai), to defeat the long night. He was brought back by R'Hillor (hence the "flaming" part) to do this one thing, and I think he will die doing it. I honestly see no other future for him. Danaerys will sit on the Iron Throne, possibly pregnant with his child, hopefully influenced by him to be a more moderate, even proto-democratic, ruler, and Sansa will be the Lady of Winterfell. His death is the bitter part of GRRM's ending. (IMO his "final five" list of survivors means nothing. It just means these characters survive until the last book. It doesn't mean they're still standing at the end of that book.) So I go with: Dead 1. Jon 2. Jorah 3. Cersei 4. Jaime 5. Littlefinger 6. Beric 7. The Hound 8. Euron 9. Ghost 10. Rhaegal 11. Melisandre 12. Varys Living 1. Dany 2. Bran 3. Sansa 4. Arya 5. Tyrion 6. Tormund 7. Brienne 8. Sam 9. Gilly 10. Gendry 11. Missandei 12. Yara 13. Drogon 14. Edd

    Spoiler Discussion: The apple was poisoned?!

    Is the wedding at Regina's house? It kind of looks like it, with that black and white floor tile.

    S04.E02: The Lying Detective

    I just finished posting this same thought in the Speculation thread. But you put it much more coherently than I did, and now I'm even more convinced that we're both right.

    Season Four: Speculation WITH Spoilers

    This is an excellent theory also. However it shakes out, I'm convinced Redbeard is critical to whatever went down with Euros and Sherlock as children. I still lean toward my own crack theory (Redbeard = Euros) but the fact that there's canon out there involving murderous siblings and dogs is interesting.....!

    Season Four: Speculation WITH Spoilers

    I have another crack theory: there is no Redbeard the Dog. Redbeard the Dog is a trick of Sherlock's mind. Any memory we've seen of Young Sherlock and Redbeard is actually a memory of Young Sherlock and Euros. (Okay, yes, that one is probably too crazy.)

    S04.E02: The Lying Detective

    Okay, I don't normally toot my own horn like this, but I'm feeling positively Sherlockian right now, because last week I posted this in the Speculation thread: But I will freely admit I didn't guess the redhead on the bus was also the therapist.

    Season Four: Speculation WITH Spoilers

    What if Sherrinford is the redhead on the bus? Okay, that's a crack theory. But I'm leaving it here anyway.

    Speculation for Lucifer: Purgatory

    I agree. I also think Lucifer's self-touted honor will be jeopardized by his emotional connection to Chloe before the end of the season. That line from Charlotte about how "the one thing Lucifer values above [pointed look at Chloe] everything is his honor" just screams foreshadowing. I think Dad is using Chloe to take Lucifer down a peg or two, teach him lessons about humanity and humility and, more sinisterly, eviscerate the one thing holding Lucifer's fragile self-esteem together: his sense of integrity. All so he can bring him back into the fold. The question will be, how does Lucifer square his strong desire for a deep, human connection with Chloe (not just romantic, mind you) with his much vaunted free will? And what role does Chloe herself play in all of it? Because I do credit with these writers with a plan that involves her being more than just a "magical girl" who exists solely to serve Lucifer's story, and that's saying a lot, because I usually assume the worst in these situations. Don't disappoint me, writers.
  10. !!!!!!! I was a diehard TWoP girl (under a different username). I'd definitely check out its new iteration, and I'd be really excited if the recaps were back. TWoP had THE BEST show recaps out there, rivaled only by AVClub. (Cindy McClennan!! Have they called you yet??) But I have to say, I like the way this place is moderated much better. There's a little more leeway allowed for vigorous debate, but it's never allowed to descend into the personal or annoyingly repetitive.

    Spoiler Discussion: The apple was poisoned?!

    I've thought this since they first appeared onscreen. I don't think you hire Sam Witwer to be a one-season villain. I think he's secretly good, and I also think he will be Regina's True Love. (Because Robin was just her "soulmate." Not her "true love.")

    Season 6: Info, Casting and Spoilers

    The same could be said of Melisandre, though. Maybe Jon orders them to forge an uneasy truce because he needs them both? I really don't want him to throw in with Melisandre's Red God wackadoo shit.

    Speculation WITHOUT Spoilers: Lalalalala! I can't hear you!

    Bringing this over from the episode thread, because I belatedly realized it's more spec than commentary: I just watched it, and I'm kind of loving Hyde, gross bloodshot eyes and all. I'm hoping he turns out to be the good guy, and Jekyll the bad guy. Maybe he wants Storybrook because he's actually trying to help the people from the Land of Untold Stories finish their stories and find their happy endings, while Jekyll wanted to come to Storybrook to be all eeeeevil and such? One way or another, I'm pegging Hyde for Regina's new love interest. I don't think you hire Sam Witwer just to talk in a really low voice and rock Victorian outfits.
