    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    I thought it was pretty clear when he was yelling at Tyrion to shut up as Tyrion told him it wasn't his place to decide that this had gone beyond orders for him. And the way he looked at Jon last ep as Jon tried to restrain his own men was as if he was itching for a reason to kill him, even though Dany still wanted Jon to the end and what Jon did with his own men was really not Grey Worm's perview. He's not meant to be the same unthinking unfeeling soldier from before he knew Dany and Missandei. (I also thought it was interesting that he sentenced the Lannister prisoners to die, which suggests more autonomy than a mere executioner.)

    Fun fact: the only way Rickon's name came up after his death was when Jaime was pretending to not know Dickon's name. So, yes, his siblings did forget.

    Bran's predecessor claimed to have been waiting for him for 1000 years, long past the normal human lifespan. I think it can be surmised that he needed to be rooted in the cave to stay in the human world. Bran's physical body is still pretty young but all he needs to do is find one weirwood cave in the south or plant a new tree to rule Westeros forever once his human body gets closer to an end.

    The exceptions to tradition would be when the wife's house is in danger of dying out and is much more prestigious than the husband's. It's really not as modern as it's being made out to be. The north having its first female ruler would be a much bigger deal than her forefathers' name being allowed to live on with her children.

    I don't think she was speaking the same to both groups, hence why she addressed them separately.

    Bran Stark: I'm Flying

    Bran had to be dehumanized for magic reasons but haha his only use in the Long Night was to sit as bait and his real destiny was to win the game of thrones. I feel pretty vindicated for hating what they did to Bran post-hold the door while other people insisted that's just how his powers had to go and his humanity never mattered.

    I don't think Dany's mindset in the last two eps was the same one she entered Westeros with when Jorah, Missandei, and all her dragons were still alive, but I'm also not interested in arguing about that. This bend the knee point has been used against her since well before she started frying civilians, with these posts saying it had always been her problem, and I thought it was clear I was talking about that.

    We never knew what the hell breaking the wheel meant, but up until recently she only threatened the lords, not the smallfolk. She could limit the powers of the lords over their peasants and issue laws protecting the people while retaining power for herself. There was no way she was going to get in a position to change anything by asking the Randyll Tarlys of the world nicely.

    How do y'all think the Starks and other great houses stay in power over their lesser lords and subjects? Slavery is illegal in Westeros but nobody was truly 21st century free, so Dany's attitude toward her own countrymen vs. others whose ancestors never served her family is pretty consistent with the society in Westeros. I'm not talking about her heel turn of liberating civilians through mass murder but in an ep in which the big name lords laughingly compare their people to livestock it's a bit weird to see people acting like Dany invented bend the knee or else.

    Yeah, and it's not just Sansa's name, it's her brothers' and father's and paternal uncles' and grandfather's and further forefathers' for thousands of years. There's nothing particularly progressive about saving the name of a long line of powerful men from going extinct. The 8,000 years of Stark rule figure is already outrageous but I really can't believe it lasted in an unbroken male line. Sansa is probably just the first lady to rule in her own name instead of having the claim go straight to her son. And I know people are obsessed with the Elizabeth I comparisons but I see no reason to assume she's determined to spend the rest of her life single just because she wasn't in a hurry to get remarried after Ramsay.

    Yeah, the brown eyed guys (Meryn Trant and Rorge, I believe) she killed were not particularly important either. I never thought the line was supposed to be 3 or more specific big kills.
