    Our Favorite GOT Moments: It Is Known

    I actually like these clips. It shows she's just a naive young lady who's been fed a version of history that isn't the whole truth -- and she truly believed that she'd be welcomed back with open arms. I don't see this as evidence that she was off her rocker or destined to go mad.

    I believe it was Little Dany Stalin. Or according to the showrunners Little Dany Lawerence of Arabia. :)

    King of the only people who really matter, the Free Folk. I don't know, at least with the Free Folk they choose their King. And their King is more like a President or Prime Minister. None of this ruling houses and ruling families business. I'll just say that the ending of the show was very much pollyanna and really not consistent with what we'd come to expect after eight years of watching - at least not for me. A more realistic ending would have ended with the seven kingdoms being no more. Everyone is independent - and all the character arcs wouldn't have been wrapped in a tiny neat little bow either with the characters getting what they wanted or ending up dead.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    She didn't though. She's Queen in the North. Not Queen of the Realm. Bran won the Game of the Thrones; even though he wasn't playing. LOL.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    Neither Sansa nor Bran were King/Queen of the Realm material. At least not how it played out on the show. At this point, it is what it is. Personally, I think Sansa's character arc has been lacking since the marriage with Ramsay storyline. Based on what I've seen on the show, this is all she did since then: Season Six: Pouts, moans, and bitches to Jon about taking back Winterfell, her home. When Jon, Sansa, and Davos tried to get Northern forces to fight with the Starks few were willing to follow Sansa. The ones that did followed because of Jon and Davos persuasion or because they had suffered under the Bolton's. She nitpicked everything Jon did but didn't really offer an valuable advice, other than "don't do what he (Ramsay) wants you to do". Apparently, she had already written Rickon off as a goner but failed to mention that to Jon and instead then used Rickon to play at Jon's heart strings some more. She also failed to mention that she was apparently actively working her connection with Littlefinger to try and get more men to fight for the cause. Jon was then left to fight with what he had until The Vale showed up to save the day (which Sansa never let anyone forget) and after untold numbers of Northmen, Stark Bannermen, and Wildings had already been killed on the field of battle. And that's just everything leading up to BoTB. Season Seven: She reminded everyone to send food to Winterfell and apparently needed to tell a seasoned commander that his soldiers needed plating because it's so cold in the North. And she whined and complained about Jon being gone, while he was out trying to get resources to fight the AoTD. She was played by Littlefinger for the entire season and he was turning her against her sister. But I'm not even mad that she's Queen in the North. It's what she been wanting probably since the BoTB. So props to her for getting it.

    That doesn't really work. It's really hard to hide paternity when one parent is black or brown. There are rare instances when someone who is of mixed ethnicity (we will use black / white for this example) may look just white or black - but for the most part, the vast majority will look, well mixed. It would have been damn near impossible for Cersei to pass off Jaime's kids as Robert's if the Baratheon's had been black or brown.

    I doubt this. Drogon was Dany's not Jon's. He's not going to find his way back to the person who killed his mother. The books cover pretty good detail the fact that the Targaryen's fought each other and each other's dragons all the time. The dragons are not tied to the Targaryen bloodline - they are tied to a particular rider. Another reason why, I think the show should have had Jon Snow torched by Drogon. He just wiped out a whole city - he could have melted the Iron Throne and Jon without breaking a sweat.
  8. It's easy to be united when you have a common enemy. In the case of the North, the common enemy was The South and whichever King (or Queen) sat on the Iron Throne. Now that they are independent, they don't have a common enemy to unite them. It seems pretty obvious that it won't be long before they start to squabble with each other.

    Eh. I disagree. Dany's storyline and how it was handled in episodes 2-6 are a huge part of seasons eights issues. Lots of things have been foreshadowed on this show that never came to pass and foreshadowing is not character development. Everything about Dany's storyline this final season was rushed and sloppy.

    Well, if that's the case, Bran should have been sent to The Night's Watch and not made King. :) Tyrion's not even trying to make sense anymore, LOL.

    Thank you! Even if she had to die, it all felt so rushed. Give us at least two or three episodes of Dark Dany before she gets the old predictable knife in the heart from her lovah. Also, how did Jon get that knife in her heart. They were standing so close, it would have been impossible to pull it out and knife her from that distance, angle. LOL.

    Eh. Some other family will just step up and rule. If nothing else, Northern people are a fickle bunch.

    Sansa Stark: A Direwolf In Sheep's Clothing?

    Thank you! I do not understand all of the people who are like Sansa deserved to be Queen in the North. Why? What did she do? Her brother was made King of the Seven Kingdoms and he basically handed her independence on a platter. If I'm Dorne or the Iron Islands - I'm pissed. Also, I think her ending is one of the few that is actually bittersweet. She's QITN for now but she really has lost her entire family. I know some people say she'll have children but I don't see that happening, she's too damaged. Maybe Sam should have suggested democracy and therapy for all involved. LOL. Although I will admit that I don't care for Sophie Clark has an actress, and I've never been impressed with her portrayal as Sansa.

    Except. I don’t think she wants to.

    It made no sense that Sansa, Arya, and Bran were all there to begin with. The North didn’t need all three of them to represent.
