Conan Troutman June 3, 2015 Share June 3, 2015 I think it might end up that Arya is placed in a position where she has to choose between getting revence on Meryn Trant or completing her face-gaming mission, and that will prove whether or not she's ready to become no one. Ah, maybe that's what the other girl and Jaquen were talking about in the whole "she's no ready" - "it's all the same" argument. Her: "What if she kills the other dude instead?". Jaquen: "Well, at least she's killing some asshole... our boss ain't that picky, you know." The battle scene was crazy and tense and good but I did not understand why the 500-foot-tall wave of zombie mist somehow stopped at Hardhome's crappy wooden palisade. Unless it was, like, White Walkers Tasmanian Devilling their way through the Wildlings? Maybe because the Wights slowed down a bit upon reaching the walls? Or they were just considerate enough to not ruin the scene, which would've sucked for us. So, could this possibly be a major banding together of leaders to defeat the White Walkers and the Dead Army? Dany and her dragons, John and anyone with Valaryian steel, and Stannis sailing back to his homeland, get as much dragon glass as possible, and arm as many as are still alive? And Bran - who knows what may be doing -- maybe a lot of Dr Xavier stuff and looking around to find other wargs or something? I dunno... That would be too easy. I'm not sure how they could drag this out over at least two seasons without it getting boring. There needs to be more conflict. Which is one reason I'm optimistic Stannis will crush the Boltons: Dany needs a formidable foe once she sets foot on Westeros and Stannis is pretty much the only one left, aside from maybe LF. A Stannis vs Dany story could be a big part of next season / early season seven and provide the stepping stone towards the end game. Link to comment
