    S06.E04: Code Yellow

    They are tracking people who "don't belong". Deke comes up as someone who doesn't belong but scans differently. I am thinking the other Coulson is going to recognize someone currently in space and that is when we will get an explanation of what is going on.
  2. There is enough in the books for people to have theories about the significance of Winterfell. There could be something magical hidden there that is necessary to defeat the Others. Winterfell may have been built specifically to conceal it. If there is to be some sort of final battle, Winterfell is as good a place as any to have it. It's probably the logical place. Imagine if there was some link between Bran Stark and Brandon the Builder and Winterfell is named because it is where Bran remembers winter being stopped and he is somehow in the past as BtB or in his head the way he was in Hodor's in the show.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    They probably would have been okay with Jon Snow, a Northman, even without knowing of his heritage. It's at least plausible that Jon would have designated Bran as his heir. The North was already independent. They didn't gain their independence. They chose not to rejoin the Seven Kingdoms. The other kingdoms never left.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    I don't think she was asking for independence. He chose not to fight the war that would have been required to keep the North in the Seven Kingdoms. A Stark ruling in the North is a tenet of Northern nationalism. Lyanna Mormont supports Jon as King in the North because he has Stark blood. Sociologically, the North sees itself as distinct, with its unique history, separate religion, and its ethnic heritage coming from the First Men rather than the Andals. There is a notably xenophobic reaction when the foreign Queen comes waltzing into Winterfell with her foreign army. I interpret Sansa as a character who moved away from sympathy for cosmopolitanism and multiculturalism due to her personal experience and towards a stance of nationalism.
  6. Why should viewers be given time to psychologically detach from the character?
  7. I'd lose a lot of respect for him as an artist if he panders to the point of changing his ending. Plus, it would probably take him twice as long to finish.

    Tyrion Lannister: Impin' Ain't Easy

    Tyrion seemed mostly fine so long as his duties didn't involve military strategy. He had one useful trick at Blackwater and fancied himself a general.

    There is no mention of the valonqar in the show. They may have excised that part of the prophesy because they were already looking ahead to having this sort of end for Cersei.
  10. If she is resurrected, maybe she'd be more like Lady Stoneheart.
  11. The Boltons are a bit of a special case, with a long-running rivalry with the Starks. I doubt any of the minor houses of the North have the power and resources to consider what you suggest. And I think you underestimate the power of Northern nationalism.
  12. If they are aiming higher, it would be that they want to be King in the North in place of Sansa. Dany doesn't help that goal.
  13. The North was unified in its desire to be independent of the Iron Throne. How does an alliance with Dany further that goal?

    As Lord of Highgarden, Bronn is now rich. He's basically there to loan money to the Crown. And maybe to force people to pay their taxes.

    Game Over: How YOU Would Have Done Season 8

    The problem is that they had the Night King un-build that wall at the end of season 7. If the final battle is supposed to be at Winterfell, how many episodes are you going to take to get there? I think your plan requires moving the wight hunt to Season 8, which would leave Season 7 pretty thin and in need of filler.
