Doomed character spotted in Zumaia & Four characters on new quest (SPOILERS!)

20161020_1910352

Production moved from Biscay to Gipuzkoa this weekend and it has not been idle since. Zumaia has been witness to friendly and tense reunions and a momentous convergence. Today, on the third day of filming at Itzurun beach, is no different, as a main character whose fate was perhaps thought of as doomed last season returns to the narrative, and joins three other main characters on a new quest to parts unknown.

Yersterday Iain Glen was spotted in Bilbao, so it wasn’t so shocking when, this morning at the Dragonstone set, Ser Jorah Mormont reported for duty, ever faithful to Queen Daenerys Stormborn (well, not “ever faithful” —More like “since mid-season one.”)

El Diario Vasco reports on the scene, in which Jorah isn’t actually arriving —He is leaving. This not only tells us Jorah at some point returns to Daenerys but that he later leaves. First, Mormont is seen talking to Tyrion as Daenerys approaches, escorted by a retinue of Dothraki, including season six’s bloodrider Qhono played by Staz Nair. The queen says farewell to her advisor, who in turn vows to his queen. You may notice Daenerys is wearing the same outfit as yesterday, but this time she is sporting a red cloak instead of a white one. So that’s it: At long last, Daenerys Targaryen dresses in her colors, black and red. Jorah’s new outfit is just as exciting, inasmuch as Jorah has a new outfit, after wearing the same yellow shirt for so many years. I’m pretty sure it was white at first!

Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Iain Glen (Ser Jorah) are seen on the set of Game of Thrones which is currently filming for its seventh series in Northern Spain

Unpredictable tides slowed filming on itzurun beach northern spain. Crew Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage get an unscripted soaking

As the scene goes on, Daenerys turns to Jon. Meanwhile, Jorah helps some men prepare the boat. Among these men you may notice Davos and none other than Gendry, which confirms what we already suspected: Once Tyrion and Davos flee King’s Landing with Robert’s bastard, they take him to Dragonstone. However, the scene does end surprisingly as Jorah, Davos, Gendry and Jon push the boat and go away together.

Has Jorah cured his greyscale already, or did he fail in his mission but returned anyway? Did Daenerys simply want to give a purpose to a doomed man, expecting this quest would be his last, or did she actually have hope he would succeed in curing his ailment? What must also be considered is the relationship between Jeor Mormont and Jon Snow, who was gifted Longclaw by the Old Bear. Will Jorah clash with Jon over the Valyrian steel sword? Could the apparent “North-meets-South” angle of this coming season mean Jorah may eventually meet his fiery, precocious cousin Lyanna, the Lady of Bear Island? What is the new quest involving King Jon, Ser Jorah, Ser Davos and Gendry?

These are exciting questions, and I hope the community is eager to find possible answers in the comments. However, please be considerate: Those who read this particular spoiler may not be aware (or even want to be aware) of other spoilers, so let’s only discuss what is pertinent —That is, what is revealed and discussed here, no more.

    1. Ooo, intriguing!

      Jon, Davos, Gendry and Jorah together! I have to digest this for a while, lol!

      And it’s going to be difficult to discuss this without making reference to other filming spoilers but I hope everybody does their best!

    5. Dany’s cape seems to have a reddish lining, so she’s wearing Targaryen colours!

      Also, Jorah is probably cured, he lets Dany get near him and even seems to kiss her hand. There’s no way he’d do that if he wasn’t cured.

    6. Cool by Law Jon is Jorah King hahaha… I know he is not change Dany for Jon but House Mormont is loyal to the Starks.. “Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark”…. nice to see Jon Leaving with Jorah, Davos and Gendry… if Arya is in Winterfell … we are going to see Arya – Gendry reunion 🙂

    8. It would have been interesting to see just a second more of how was the farewell between Jon and Dany to understand better their relationship. Shaking hands? A bow? A hug?

        Quote  Reply

    9. Well, I noticed that As Jon says his goodbyes to Dany, he neither kisses her, nor bows. This should alleviate some of the fears of those already condemning the show for the “rushed”, “contrived” or otherwise “forced” Ship of Jonerys. If the show is headed in that direction, and as a book reader, I hope they are (as I’ve felt since my first read of ASOIAF way before the show started has always been GRRM’s intent), I have no doubt DnD are going to handle it properly. Remember, there are still 13 hours in which to develop this relationship, 3x as long as a full length feature film. So relax, and enjoy, everybody! Thanks for keeping us entertained in the long off season, WOTW staff, you guys are incredible!

    11. Interesting.

      At first I thought leaks are bs but this is so true. They’re going the North to capture a wight. Iceland filming starts in January for 6 main characters probably Jon, Jorah, Gendry, The Hound, Thoros and Beric. or Tormund. Depends on.

    12. For the past week, I’ve woken up every single morning to awesome spoilers. I’ve gotten so spoiled by the filming in Spain that it’s going to suck when they go back to Northern Ireland and its tighter security.

      I love Dany’s red cloak and Jorah’s snazzy new outfit. That dirty yellow shirt better not be under there though.

      I also love that Dany has a private moment with both Jorah and Jon. I was hoping to see a goodbye handshake between Jon and Tyrion. Oh well.

      Jon, Davos, Jorah, and Gendry makes for a surprising and interesting group. Seriously, who would’ve thought at the end of S6 we’d see those men together?

      I wish the forums worked properly because Luka poses many questions that some of us know the answers to and I would love to discuss them further outside of this thread so as not to spoil things for others. Sigh.

      Wow! Totally agree. What a road trip! I can only imagine they are headed north, but why? Has Danny agreed to help Jon maybe, again why? What about Cercei? So many questions.

    14. tuit,

      If they had any kind of more physical contact I imagine it would be in private before an official goodbye in front of everyone, Dany is a very private person and doesn’t like showing her heart publicly, I Imagine Jon is similar but not to the same extent. It’s different with Jorah though, she’s known him for years and considers him family.

    15. Geralt of Rivia,

      All this leaks with the wight looks so silly for me …… Some things maybe be true but to capture a wight to convice Cersei for an alliance aggainst WW is stupid . How can Jon trust that woman ???

    16. I’ve already said it on the other thread, but the tone of red, they used for Dany’s cape, looks a lot like Rollo-red to me (and they are always very considerate when it comes to the symbolism of clothes)…

      And also just a general thought. Season 7 might feel slightly different with all the travelling going on. We could get a lot more of those Varys type situation from S6E10 where he was in Dorne and later in the same episode he was on a ship outside Meereen. I mean Davos alone seems to be all over the place (DS, KL twice, somewhere the boat is going). I’m not complaining, mind you, just getting tired of the impending jetpack jokes already :roll:

      The North is a Independent Kingdom now!!…. and if Jon is a legitimate son of Rhaegar he is the King of the Seven Kingdonm not Daenerys

      Also, sons come before daughters in terms of succession usually, it’s one thing Cersei always complained about. Technically, Jon as the son of Rhaegar would be next in line before Dany.

      Unless I’ve been playing too much Crusader Kings and Westeros has a different policy.

      The North isn’t Independent Kingdom Dany never give her blessings, they’re mere rebels till crown accepts them, and Rhaegars line was disinherited by Aerys whether he is legitimate or not he has no claim, King line follows through Viseyrs to Daenerys

    23. Perhaps the goodbye isn’t sentimental because it is a short adventure? I would have loved to see a throwback to the goodbye atop the wall between Tyrion and Jon!

        Quote  Reply

    24. BluerRoseofWinterfell,

      Jon is not trusting Cersei here, but he is counting on her sense of self-preservation. He thinks that once Cersei has proof of what is coming for all of them, it is in HER interest to help them, otherwise they are all dead. Only someone as near-sighted as Cersei would have failed to see this. Now Jon would have no way of knowing how stupid she really is. He would know that she is cruel, ambitious, ruthless but not necessarily how stupid she is. If it had been someone more level-headed like say Tywin, he would never have dismissed Jon after he gave him the proof of the wight. Tywin would first have ensured that he did everything to eliminate this very legitimate threat to HIM and HIS family, only then would he have reverted to his games.
      What I want to really know is how did Tyrion approve of this plan. He of all people would know Cersei’s true nature.

    25. Gendry heading to the North! I would love to see an Arya and Gendry reunion; when the Brotherhood sold him to Melisandre, Arya was the only one who protested on his behalf – and he protected her so well in most of seasons two and three. Whenever I re-watch 305, when she says to him “I can be your family”, it just cuts me to shreds!

      That will be an interesting travelling group – I can’t wait for Jon and Jorah to have a heart-to-heart about Jeor! And it will be interesting for Davos and Gendry to re-connect, with everything that happened after Davos let him escape. I also want to hear Jon and Davos maybe reflect on their time at Dragonstone and Daenerys, in particular, once they are away from her.

      With all these arrivals and departures happening, there must also be a lot of interiors due to be filmed/already filmed for Dragonstone. I would guess that even if we only get Jon there for two or three episodes, there will be a lot of screen time in those episodes dedicated to that location. Exciting!

      Mawk,

      In Westeros bastards are the lowest of the low so daughters come before them, it’s one of the reasons LF was not expecting Jon to have leadership over Sansa but northerners do things their own way.

      The faith killed off having multiple marriages after the fire breathing dragons died out, and the last Targ who tried marrying more than one wife got exiled because of it.

      Not that any of it matters who has more right anymore, because now it looks like whoever takes the throne by conquest will get it. Like Littlefinger who has no relation to anyone whose been on the throne but that’s not gonna stop him trying to get it

        Quote  Reply

    27. Figure Dany wants one of her advisors to see what’s going on up north personally. Jorah makes the most sense and Jon probably pardons him, allowing him to safely return home. I’m sure Longclaw will come up, but Jorah left it behind on purpose. It isn’t his any more.

        Quote  Reply

    28. I dont think Dany needs to be convinced of anything. She knows magic exists. She will believe in the WW. I think Jon and the others will go to North trying to guard there while Dany defeats Cersei and unites the other kingdoms. Jon knows if they want to have a chance to beat the WW they need everyone united and Dany will most likely agree when she gets to know about the WW.

      So many of the costumes we have seen so far reflect the fact that winter is here, and that Daenerys’s people have arrived in a place with a much colder climate than Meereen. I am really looking forward to seeing what Sansa and the rest of the characters appearing in the North get to wear there next season! Michele Clapton’s designs are always amazing, so I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

    34. ghost of winterfell,

      I have problem with Cersie staying alive and ruling, if this leak is true it would be major fail of logic. What prevent Dany to burn Cersie and Mountain when this meeting happens. In my mind, for Dany to conquer KL should be enough to took dragons and flay couple of circles around KL and wait for Cersie army desert and people turn against her. How is she even able to supply food for every one KL without Tyrells? It`s stupidity.

    35. I cannot believe

      those shi*ty leaks look to be true. For gods sakes. All I can hope is they look better than they read. Because they read like high school level fan fiction.

        Quote  Reply

    36. BluerRoseofWinterfell,

      This seems to me like 100% a show invention because in the books

      Jon already has wights in the ice cells iirc.

      I don’t know how

      he thinks they can trust Cersei, unless Tyrion (who knows her very well) thinks they can because Cersei wouldn’t want to die. And either way, apparently Jaime still goes to the north to help (hopefully with a separate army), so the decision might end up paying off in the long run as it usually happens with Jon.

      ghost of winterfell,

      I haven’t read this, but what convinces me that

      he’s also trying to convince Dany is the fact that she isn’t leaving with them. So, she likely worries and decides to go after them out of her own volition. I also read that Dany attacks the Lannister army after they finish off the Tyrell army, so maybe Jon feels like he needs to convince her to postpone her conquest even though she might believe him. You’re much more likely to do that once you have actual evidence.

        Quote  Reply

    37. As to Jorah’s greyscale… If it’s cured (and it seems so as he seems to kiss Dany’s hand), I wonder what was the point? Just to make him act a bit recklessly and to keep him away from Dany’s side at some crucial time?

      Maybe there’s something taking place in early S7 that it’s important Jorah is not there?

      Or was the greyscale just introduced as a nod to book readers?

      In the books,

      the greyscale patient zero is Jon Connington (he gets it by saving Tyrion, the same way Jorah got it in the show). It makes him act more recklessly as he might’ve otherwise, since he might not have much time to install (f)Aegon on the throne.

      I’ve got this idea, that at first everything goes pretty well for (f)Aegon and Jon Connington, people flock to them because they’re sick and tired of Lannister rule etc. etc. But then greyscale/grey plague starts spreading and people turn against (f)Aegon because of the horror, thus paving way for Dany. That would be a good reason for introducing greyscale in the books. Also, there’s Val’s extreme reaction to Shireen’s (cured) greyscale, that reinforces the idea that it might become important.

        Quote  Reply

    38. I saw this posted in the other thread and I’m wondering the same thing:

      Now that Jon and Co. are off on their wight-hunting expedition, what makes Dany fly North with her dragons? She looks pretty forlorn on the beach saying goodbye to Jorah and Jon, accepting they’re off on a dangerous mission without her. So why the change of heart and the last-minute rescue? Does she later sense they’re in grave danger? Having met Jon, do her dragons sense he’s in danger and let their mother know? Does she receive a raven-gram from Eastwatch telling her they’re off beyond the wall and she decides to join in? And do her advisers really let her fly off North?

    39. dragonbringer,

      Well Ramsay was small potatoes compared to Cersei and according to the spoilers they do try to take KL but after they fail he realizes that the best course of action is to not to loose time and everybody to work together.I guess even Tyrion doesn’t know how batshit crazy Cersei is lol.

        Quote  Reply

    40. dragonbringer,

      Dude. Ramsay had sent him a letter where he threatened to kill him, kill Rickon, rape Sansa and kill the NW and Wildlings (the only people at the time who were willing to fight against the WW). That alone proves Jon can’t work with Ramsay and that the only way to rally people to fight the WW is to restore the Starks and take control himself. He spent the entirety of season 5 sending ravens to these people and they didn’t even bother to send recruits.

        Quote  Reply

    41. It’s quite silly how Jorah keeps leaving then returning. Especially with how dramatic and emotional they’re making his departures.
      Unless he at least found a cure for his greyscale, his emotional parting with Dany in S6 is a total gimmick.

      I’m not at all surprised Gendry is leaving with Jon. They need some casualties up north to raise the stakes and their northerners are too precious. Besides, killing characters off seems to be their idea of tying up storylines.

        Quote  Reply

    42. Jon and Jorah will be cool duo next season.

      There is a one apprently pretty touching scene about Longclaw and Jeor. Also, they have something to do with Dany. Looks, Jorah will be yet again friendzoned in favour of someone else.

        Quote  Reply

    43. talvikorppi,

      I agree, I thought they passed on greyscale to another person not to simply cure it but to somehow harvest it and use it as a weapon against the WW otherwise in the show at least it seems pointless

        Quote  Reply

    44. To be honest, even after having watched her for six season, it’s pretty staggering that Cersei would be this stupid. Who would be thick enough to reach the conclusion that sending tens of thousands of people to their deaths would thin out her enemies after receiving a first-hand demonstration of exactly what happens to people who are killed by white walkers?

    45. talvikorppi,
      Kosten,

      I think they gave Jorah greyscale as an excuse to keep him away from Dany. Without Jorah there, she has to rely on Tyrion as an adviser and it makes his appointment at Hand of the Queen more believable (especially since Jorah isn’t there when it happens).

        Quote  Reply

    46. Dany looks rather sad to see them all go doesn’t she. It kind of feels like Jorah is saying a goodbye that means he intends to be gone longer than the others. It could just be his infatuation or maybe his (initial) plan is to return to Bear Island and mend things with family while the others intend to return to Dragonstone after a mission.

        Quote  Reply

    47. Jenny,

      I find that to be the only good thing about them to be honest with you.

      The rest is completely out of character, doesn’t match at all what they’ve set up and some of it sounds ridiculous. I legitimately thought it was some tumblr fool writing fan fiction when they first “leaked”. Now I feel bad I mocked the guy. Seems he was telling at least some truth. Looking more and more likely though that he was telling more than just some. Which I find almost unbelievable given how poor it sounds.

      And she teams up with Euron defeating ollena and ellaria ..yara captured and killed probably ..

      and now jon thinks its better to convince her of the threat because of the lives being lost ..

      Iam sorry it feels really Silly ..while jon and starks reclaim their home and named king and fight their enemies and get revenge ..
      But the Others are being robbed of this and not allowed because of jon again…

    53. Jenny,

      I agree. I like that the Night King will turn Viserion because otherwise Dany and her 3 dragons would barely break a sweat in destroying the Army of the Dead. Not only is it tragic that Dany loses one of her children, but now we get a more evenly matched battle. I mean, holy shit, the Night King riding an undead dragon is reminiscent of the Witch-king on his Fell Beast from LOTR. Now that was frightening. I can’t wait to see something similar in GOT.

      It just seems out of nowhere and she just left Jon behind. The one she is supposed to care about. Looking at him while he’s fighting whole horde by himself after everyone got away. Benjen is supposed to rescue him and give him horse. He’s North of the Wall for some reason and he can’t help Bran, so he might help Jon? Makes sense maybe?

      But he just left her in those images lol we are not sure why but he did, amd jjst because he did it doesn’t mean he’s not returning.

    59. Abbie,

      It really doesn’t make sense though.

      She is fire resistant. She gave birth to 3 dragons. She can ride those dragons. According to the leaks Davos tells her that Jon was murdered and resurrected from the dead. She had her House of the Undying visions which took her to the land beyond the Wall that they will be describing to her. So you have all those magical elements in front of her, but the White Walkers are a bridge too far? And in an ironic twist of fate she won’t believe in those magical beings, but will hop on the back of a….magical being and fly there to see for herself. Makes for a good action sequence. But not good writing.

Also, dany believs in white walkers but it’s to convince Team Cersei and Euron. Jon basically appeals to their need of survival. Cersei promised after seeing wight at the dragonpit that she send her forcex but lies. That promots Jaime to finally leave her. She just wants undead army to thin her enemies and so she can then defeat them. Euron just says fuck it after asking if they can swim.

      He is the one who doesnt leave mommy and still wanted to be careied on her shoulder and kind of lazy fellow..
      Dany will be very hurt if she gies against him..

      I dont think this makes a even match per se ..because drogon is still big ..

      Many people aee not getting what it means it seems ..if NK is on a dragon then it means dany on Drogon..iam not sure many are wanting this..

      Perhaps she leaves Jon behind, because he tells her to. For example, maybe he is trying to buy her enough time to successfully rescue the others. Cliche? Yes, but it’s the only way it makes sense because apparently in that same episode Jon privately swears fealty to her. And in the episode after that, they have sex.

      I’ve been trying to avoid those leaks and now a lot of this thread seems to be about them. I accidentally opened a couple because I thought they would be about the other filming spoilers from this week. I guess I’d better not open any spoilers from now on.

    69. I watched the video again and I’m not noticing any bags of dragon glass in that little boat Jon and Co board. Uh, isn’t that kinda important? Albeit, there is also another boat on the beach with what looks like Stark soldiers, so maybe the dragon glass is in there? BTW, it appears Jon has acquired more men than what he arrived with. I wonder if they’re men from the ship that’s just offshore or if Dany gave him some of her soldiers.

      Some of it sounds cool like the undead dragon, Bran and Sam putting Jon’s parentage together, Arya and Nymeria, Dany to the rescue, Jonerys slow burn and other stuff… But some of it just sounded too juvenile fan fic.

    80. Jenny,

      You know the arguments how dany can’t lead the war against WW because she doesnt know how to fight or wield a sword …so it must be jon because he has to fight NK in a duel ..I dont think they will be happy about it.

      In some of those pyramids, the Sons of the Harpy are plotting new murders even now, and I am powerless to stop them.
      Viserion sensed her disquiet. The white dragon lay coiled around a pear tree, his head resting on his tail. When Dany passed his eyes came open, two pools of molten gold. His horns were gold as well, and the scales that ran down his back from head to tail. “You’re lazy,” she told him, scratching under his jaw. His scales were hot to the touch, like armor left too long in the sun. Dragons are fire made flesh. She had read that in one of the books Ser Jorah had given her as a wedding gift. “You should be hunting with your brothers. Have you and Drogon been fighting again?”

    81. dragonbringer,

      The big battle is between the living and the dead. In order to rally people it’s a given that the Starks need to be in a position of power that allows them to do it (especially since Bran and Jon’s stories have been tied up with this battle for so long). So yeah, they have to take Winterfell. Also, they’ve been struggling and suffered a lot for seasons on end. Them getting Winterfell is their first moment of revenge. Let’s not act as if the Starks have had many ‘hell yeah’ moments on the show and get to defeat their enemies for good every season.

      There’s no way Dany is taking KL this season. It’s stuffed with wildfire caches and Cersei isn’t above burning it (as you have mentioned). Might as well try and get Cersei’s army to fight because it’s also in her best interest to not get attacked by WW. The only way Dany can take KL right now is if she unleashes her dragons on it and burns it (and I think at this point we both know that’s not going to happen, because many innocent people will die).

      We haven’t heard anything about the Martell or Tyrell troops, we know that the naval battle will most likely be won by Euron, so there go Dany’s allies. We’re at a standstill.

      We also know from her HotU vision that Dany postpones her conquest to go north. It’s been foreshadowed for years.

        Quote  Reply

    82. dragonbringer,

      Well there is a third dragon too, which is riderless at the moment. The NK getting a dragon does not automatically mean Dany will be the one to take care of him and not Jon.
      I never understood why does it have to be one or the other. Why can’t it be possible that both of them will be equally important? All the parallels between them we have seen so far suggests equal importance for both in the story.

      Tyrell troops will be beaten by Jaime according to the leaks , and Dany attack the Lannister army on their way back from the Reach, she is upset that she lost, the attack worries Tyrion and Varys e.t.c It’s all on the leaks.

      BlueRoseofWinterfell,

      The spoilers say that they go first to him and he doesn’t trust Tyrion anymore, Jaime wins the war so far that’s why they have to deal with Cersei

    84. Mawk,

      That’s my thoughts regarding responses to the “leak” plot points. Whether all or some are true, and it appears some are, it’s not presented in story form. To say the storyline will be fanfic or Disney by main points isn’t fair. The entire series would sound ridiculous laid out in that fashion.

        Quote  Reply

    85. Geralt of Rivia: It just seems out of nowhere and she just left Jon behind. The one she is supposed to care about. Looking at him while he’s fighting whole horde by himself after everyone got away. Benjen is supposed to rescue him and give him horse. He’s North of the Wall for some reason and he can’t help Bran, so he might help Jon? Makes sense maybe?

      My guess is that Jon would tell her to save the other people first.

      Benjen is beyond the Wall because he cannot pass through the Wall, he did help Bran, and he brought Bran back to the Wall. But he can’t pass through the Wall.

      It could even be Bran who sends uncle Benjen to save Jon with his knowledge.

      The big problem with these spoilers is that we dont really understand everything and the more detailed context.

      Jon, Jorah, Gendry and Davos might simply be going to the Wall at this stage to see what is happening at the Wall.

      After arriving at the Wall they might decide to go and searching for a wight, perhaps they will send a message to Dany to inform her of their plans.
      Dany might be worried after receiving the message and she might decide to go to the Wall quickly with her dragons.

      Or again Bran could be the one who is pushing people’s actions, we simply dont know.

      That is the problem with these spoilers they are more like bullet points of events, but they might not explain exactly how these bullet points occur.

      The person might have a lot of information about Dany and Jon and the Spanish locations, but we simply dont know how reliable some of the other spoilers are right now.

    86. If Jon goes to KL to convince Cersei, probably Brienne will go with him (if she offers it because of Jaime)

      My quess is this:

      Jon, Davos and Brienne and Podrick and maybe Jorah will go to KL. Cersei will kill one or two ( probably Podrick and Davos or Jorah) and puts the rest into a cell so she can blackmailing the North and Dany.

      But…
      Dany and the North will not accept this and go to war. At this point, Cersei thinks she can easily win the battle,but when Euron is defeated, she want to burn them all. Jaimes love for Brienne will win and he will kill Cersei and Qyburn. The Mountain will burn to death. (Before all the things we know now, I thought they went straight to KL, but maybe they meet Euron, losing the battle and flee to DS

      That explains

      So basically its a must for Starks to come in power unite the north and reclaim ..
      But same can’t be applied for dany and tyrion.
      Dany is as much tied to the fight WW like jon and bran and her story is also been about uniting people and leading ..

      The leak says Jamie defeats tyrells and let’s olenna drink poison and dany burns randyl and his son ..

      I guess its not even jon or starks I will have issues with ..but the fans who is going to cliam jon is so noble he is the only one who doesn’t want people dying and focus on the bigger picture While the others are fighting in petty battles and wasting armies..

      I now you don’t like when someone portrays Jon in better light than Dany. They’re all on board with this but comparing Winterfell which was partially because of white walkers threat only on revenge. It was for revenge for Sansa and Jon trid to rescue Rickon and protect Sansa. She was going against Boltons regardless. I wonder if Dany will do what she might do, if you still gonna defend her.

    90. dragonbringer,

      It’s the natural progression of the story. There’s foreshadowing that this is what will happen. There’s been buildup. Starks will take Winterfell: “the wolves will come again”. Fans didn’t invent it. I don’t know what your problem is. Are you upset the Starks finally took Winterfell and will most likely reunite after 6 seasons? Do you want Jon to hang out at the Wall and do nothing post resurrection? Do you want Sansa running in the woods from Ramsay all season, or Bran to stay in a cave and not share his information?

Would he really choose Cersei’s side after she’s burnt the sept and their last son jumped out of a window because of that?
      And Jon and co trying to capture a wight beyond the wall after he has seen how deadly the wights and white walkers can be??? There is too much risk they would die trying

      I’m wondering if Mel has cured him at Dragonstone? Or perhaps the Maesters at Oldtown but I’m guessing Mel knows the cure as she’d have made enquires on how Shireen was cured. Hell- she can raise the dead so a lil bit of grayscale should be easy!

To get support from Mad Queen? She is beyond reasoning and she doesn’t have many resources to be highly beneficial in the war to come. And the stupid mission will give Night King a dragon. Good going, Jon and Dany. How is Tyrion ok with this? Or Jon’s companions? They’re reduced to being as dumb as they are.

      There are quite a few readers/viewers who want exactly that, it would seem. The best kind of plot progression to them is none whatsoever. One of the most eyebrow-raising comments I read on Westeros.org before it finally went off the deep end was speculation that the first thing Jon would do after being resurrected was head back to the heart tree north of the Wall to re-swear his vows. Good writing ftw.

    98. arvgar,

      Dany at this point does not sit the Iron Throne. If you gonna go by law, Cersei is Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, she conquered it by killing everyone who was before her. Also, logic tells you that the North having declared Jon their King also declared themselves as an independent region, no longer a part of the 7 Kingdoms. Thus, unless Jon abdicates his crown and “bends the knee” on behalf of his Kingdom or are taken over by the monarch ruling from the Red Keep, Dany has no control or say in the North or any region that still has not fallen to her. That will probably (eventually) change at some point but until it does, Jon is King of all Northerners. Granted Jorah gave up Bear Island long ago.

      Makes sense, doesn’t Stannis (or was it Davos?) who say that a true ruler does whatever he must for his people.

I don’t know if she would…I hate to start another Jon vs Dany thing, but Jons proven to do things more for the people and F the consequences then Dany, who prefers to have people bend to her way or burn.

      Yup I thought about that too, and how Jorah has felt remorse about turning on his family and his dad dying before chance to make amends, so now he might be conflicted whereby he’s always shown loyalty and is in love with Dany yet now might feel it’s his duty to stand by king Jon of the north if he is to get back in good graces with Lady Lyanna and house Mormont.

      I dont have a problem with jon in south or him being king in the north or king of westeros..
      but having dany tyrion tyrells and dorne simply set aside their enemity towards cersei …and go on a stupid mission so they can convince cersei…

      Basically there are lot of stupid things in the leaks like if they are trying to convince cersei and dany defeated ..then how she can burn tarly’s I don’t know..like thats horrifies tyrion and maybe start questioning his decision ..

      Yeah, curing greyscale should be a doddle for Mel after ressurrecting a dead person! 😀

      Which makes me think, maybe Mel AND Jorah both get to Dragonstone before anybody else? Dany arrives to find her loyal Jorah, now cured…

      In this week’s filming spoilers,

      we haven’t seen Jorah arrive. Fair enough, they’re still filming for two or three more days, so we might get to see that.

      Also, in the books,

      another red priest cures Victarion Greyjoy’s festering and rotting hand/arm, and it seems to have some special qualities after that. Tinfoil: Maybe Jorah’s cured “stone arm” could have some special power!

      Yeah, and I agree, there seems to be quite a gathering of characters on Dragonstone in S7. I think filming spoilers have confirmed

      Dany, Missandei, Greyworm (+ a couple of Unsullied in their fetching new jumpers), several Dothraki, Tyrion, Varys, Jon, Davos, some northern guards, Gendry, Theon and some Ironborn and Jorah! When was the last time we saw such a concentration of characters? Probably S1 first episodes in Winterfell and then later in King’s Landing.

      I mean, Gendry being brought to Dragonstone and then heading up north with Jon? How does that work? What role is he meant to play up north?

      And Jorah heading north too?

      And this is believed to occur in episodes 5 to 7 of the season?

      Puzzling, indeed.

      Could Jorah be heading north as commander of a section of Daenerys’ army to help reinforce the North as part of their alliance? Given that he is a Northerner, perhaps his presence would reassure the North that they are not an invading force?

      And, obviously, somebody who is familiar with the North would be best leading Daenerys’ forces if they ever went up there.

      Going by Jon’s history of getting promotions and titles without wanting them, this would just be a continuation of it lol. If they are going to reveal that he is the legitimate heir, it has to serve the plot in some way, so it will become important when it is made public.And bring complications between these two. So yeah, finding out they are related after having had sex, plus the question of claim will make things difficult for Jon and Dany in S8 I guess.
      Having said that , I definitely wouldn’t mind if Jon said fuck it, I don’t want anything to do with the Iron Throne. All I want is for him to live 🙂 .

We’re going to lose some good characters because of Daenerys stubborness 🙁

This is why they’re going Beyond the Wall. Jon is essentially trying to bring everyone he can. Even including Cersei. Every men is helpful to them.

      Dany will be brought down and deemed as unworthy because she acts in impulse and kills tarlys …so tyrion and varys decide to back jon because he does not act on impulse and sees the bigger picture and cares for the people.

    122. Reading comments on Dany’s outfit has led me to look more closely at those of other characters. The design of Jon’s clothing (best seen in an Oct 25 post (“two key characters in battlement…”)) is very similar to that of Arya (Oct 11 (“another cast member..”)). This cannot be a coincidence. Are we going to see another meeting we have all been waiting for?

    125. Ramsay’s 20th Good Man:

      Could Jorah be heading north as commander of a section of Daenerys’ army to help reinforce the North as part of their alliance? Given that he is a Northerner, perhaps his presence would reassure the North that they are not an invading force?

      And, obviously, somebody who is familiar with the North would be best leading Daenerys’ forces if they ever went up there.

      I like this idea.

      And would cured Jorah leave Dany AGAIN, unless she commands it and gives him something meaningful to do?

      The only fly in the ointment is that Jorah is a disgraced exile. But if Jon as KitN pardons him… But please not reinstate him as Lord of Bear Island, I want his cousin Lady Lyanna Mormont to keep her position! 😀

      Despite a royal pardon from Jon, some northern lords might be wary of Jorah, but not as much as some “foreigner”. Though, some northern lords might be wary of any southern alliance, it’s not sure they fully believe the WW threat. And with LF possibly in the North during Jon’s absence, whispering in suitable ears…

    130. Bringing a wight south of The Wall all the way to King’s Landing introduces two major plotholes. Wights like White Walkers cannot pass The Wall (only dead bodies who then turn into wights south of The Wall) and Thorne brought the wight’s hand to King’s Landing. It was undead, moving and stuff, but by the time he reached KL it had rotten and was dead, just bone and some gross things leaking out were left. The first plothole can be avoided by having a wight brought around The Wall by ship. But the second plothole, I see no way out. It’s a continuity error.

      Lol no way it happens like that. My guess right now is that one of them dies and the other one rules. I would be happy to be wrong about that. My ideal ending would probably be Dany on the IT and Jon somewhere in the North, where he truly belongs, with the surviving members of his family, whether as KitN or as a Lord of some keep.
      Leak spoilers:

      I agree that having Dany burn the Tarlys for not kneeling is a disservice to her character. The Dany we have seen so far would never do that. When has she ever burnt someone who has not done some serious wrong? And if she does burn someone for not kneeling, how is she any different from Stannis? I really hope this part is not true.
      And further, apparently this act worries Tyrion and Varys, but Jon is A-okay with it and continues to cast admiring looks at her, the same Jon who mercy killed Mance Raydar because he could not see him being burnt alive. All this seemed BS to me when I read it. Let’s see how it turns out.

Dany had already said she needed him, but it seems he is needed more in the North….IF that is where they are going. While I think he owes it to his father to protect the ancestral home, his allegiance is with his Queen so wherever they are headed I believe it is by her request. Thanks for this great post!

      Dany on the throne is to cliche and predictable and I dont particularly like her and find her not the best ruler, she is a good conquerer, so. The best way would be that the throne is destroyed in the end.

        Quote  Reply

    136. dragonbringer,

      I agree, partly.

      Cersei hates Tyrion. Cersei doesn’t give a damn about Westeros. She wouldn’t stop a war she’s winning, in order to save it.

      However, she started the war at a disadvantage vs Dany. Cersei might agree to an armistice not because she wants to save people, but because she wants to delay her inevitable defeat. She will then drink and laugh as Others take down her enemies.

      Dany, being an idealized figure, will of course do the right thing, and stop a war she should be winning.

      I disagree that things are settled for the Starks. Littlefinger will use the fact that Sansa doesn’t trust Jon. Bran will probably bring the Walkers past the Wall. Arya will probably continue to kill the people on her list in increasingly disturbing ways. Jon will probably continue making the the same kinds of mistakes that lost him the Battle of the Bastards. I think a Stark will end up in control of Winterfell (assuming it’s standing) at the end of the show. How that happens I can’t predict as the situation in the North, and the situation with the Starks, is really, really volatile.

    140. This is about the spoilers:

      So, according to Sue, Davos and Tyrion head to King’s Landing in the 5th episodes, which means that this departure most likely happens in the 6th episode.

      So, if this group leaves Dragonstone in episode 6, do they get to Eastwatch by the end of episode 6? Or at the beginning of episode 7? And when does the parley take place? Because Jon needs to return South with the Wight in order to show it off at the Dragonpit.

      According to the leaks these are the things that happen in episode 6. They arrival in Eastwatch, they get in trouble with the NK and Wights, Dany showing up to rescue them out of nowhere (because she stays behind as we see in the photos), She helicopters everyone but Jon out of there, Jon fights the Night’s King, and gets rescued by Benjen and his horse, Dany and Jon then traveling South with a Wights, showing it off at the Dragonpt and then sail North, all happen in the same episode? Or even in an episode and a half (if the Dragonpit group leaves early episode 6 and arrives by mid episode 6 to Eastwatch). Also, when is King’s Landing going kaboom, because that has been foreshadow 3 times.

      Ah, and when is the suppose ambush supposed to take place? I’m curious because it seems Dany will be at Dragonston with Jon from Episode 3 through 6. So, while Jon and the team head to Easwatch, Dany, Tyrion and their army head to The Reach to confront Jaime for having beaten her allies. And then after that she gets spidy sense and flues to the North to rescue the guys? All within the same episode or two.

      Although the outdoor leaks regarding Dragonstone appear to be correct, there are many contradictions and events that have our characters act out of characters and thin information about all other storylines most of which take place indoors.

      Yes I’m hoping that part is false as well

      Unless we get more context. Like for example, they (House Tarly) played a part in bringing down Olenna. Something along those lines would make more sense to me (Boltonesque treachery). And it could still worry Tyrion and Varys just by the mere fact that burning to death is a bad way to go, instead of just by sword I guess. Like if it’s true, why didn’t Dany burn Jon when he refused to bend the knee. No there has to be something we’re missing, assuming that part is true

      It could even be Bran who sends uncle Benjen to save Jon with his knowledge.

      I say:

      I really like the idea that Bran, as the new 3 Eyed Raven, sends Benjen to rescue Jon, just like the old 3ER sent Benjen to rescue Bran.

      ghost of winterfell,

      The thing is that we literally have no context for any of that.

      There are thousands of reasons why Dany’s execution of the Tyrells may be legitimate (going by the moral standards of Westerosi society, of course.) It’s not just that they didn’t kneel. They may, for example, betray the Great House they were sworned to, the Tyrells, and help the Lannisters sack Highgarden. Or something else entirely. We just don’t know.

A lot of posters are already complaining that this season is going to suck, be fan-fiction, etc. Did we not learn anything last year when there was season-long speculation about who was on those burning Bolton crosses and it turned out to be no one? There are plenty of other examples. Just look at youtube, reddit, and many other sites that are filled with completely wrong speculation and theories. That should at the very least tell you to be skeptical about what you hear over the internet. I’m not saying they have to be incorrect either, but it might be wise not to get too attached to the leaks out there until they can be confirmed.

      It’s the natural progression of the story. There’s foreshadowing that this is what will happen. There’s been buildup. Starks will take Winterfell: “the wolves will come again”. Fans didn’t invent it. I don’t know what your problem is. Are you upset the Starks finally took Winterfell and will most likely reunite after 6 seasons? Do you want Jon to hang out at the Wall and do nothing post resurrection? Do you want Sansa running in the woods from Ramsay all season, or Bran to stay in a cave and not share his information?

      Everyone forgets that George RR Martin wanted his last book about ASOIAF to have the title ” A time for wolves ” Something that his publicers didn’t want because was too obvious for a title ….. Wolves will play a major part in the end ….. We like it or not

    153. First of all, sorry for imagining bad things about Dany based on blurry video. Once more I have to remind myself not to rush with interpretations, until more reliable information/clearer pictures become available. I hope Dany’s fans will be happy with my apologies.

      Now to the topic. IMO, the filmed departure scene will be Ep 6, maybe even its closing sequence. We know that Tyrion’s suicide mission to KL with an unexpected side affect of Davos bringing Gendry in to the game will be in Ep5. Hence, Ep 6 will be dedicated to Team-Dragonstone working out a new plan and starting its implementation. IMO Jorah’s role will be pivotal: he might bring some key information or item from Old Town, that will facilitate that plan. One way or another, that’s exactly what we see here: implementation of the plan, and Jon is leading the mission. I bet this team involving some of the best swordsmen of Westeros and some legends of the Flee Bottom is going to KL to provoke a public uprising and that we will see all of them in the Dragonpit. The King is going for his kingdom; the Queen will be securing air coverage I suppose.

      As for the finale it should pack to basic sequences: KL culminating in the Dragonpit and leading to the Cersei’s downfall and the North (Winterfell/Castle Balck) leading to the collapse of the Wall and WW invasion. One way or another, there is no time

      for any encounter with the wights in the North and then coming back to KL

      taking into account that Davos’ involvement in the Dragonpit sequence has been confirmed earlier.

    156. dragonbringer,

      Well, Stannis wasn’t considered the king by many. In fact, by nobody but Stannis supporters. And Ned, in S1. I mean in the showverse (and bookverse), the fandom is a different matter entirely. 😉

      We watchers/readers know Dany has a legitimate claim to the Iron Throne (notwithstanding the Targ rule that females cannot inherit; the rest of the Seven Kingdoms seem to think females can inherit if there’s no legitimate direct male line male heir) but as the situation now stands in showverse, it’s not hers until she overthrows the present monach (Cersei).

      We all know Cersei has no legitimate claim whatsover, she plonked her arse on the Iron Throne by a coup, by killing all other powerful people in KL. How does that saying go? Possession is nine tenths of having/owning something? Right now Cersei possesses the Iron Throne – though it’s unsure what exactly she’s queen of – so Dany has to overthrow her. She can’t hold the Iron Throne unless she actually holds it. Unless the Iron Throne as the symbol of the power of the King of the Andals, the First Men and the Rhoynar, etc., you know how it goes, fill it in as Robert said to Ned, isn’t important. Maybe it isn’t.

      Dany was willing to grant independence to the Iron Islands for support, even said she’d be willing to consider it for other parts of the Seven Kingdoms. (I’m not sure if that’s wise for Dany or the North, but that’s another debate.)

      I think it was important that Jon was acclaimed KitN in 610. That means he’s not just some bastard who helped to take back WF but a fellow monarch, who can come on a diplomatic mission with some gravitas. That puts Jon and Dany in an equal footing, so to speak.

      He wants to save his kingdom and the rest of Westeros from an existential threat, Dany wants to win back her kingdom. But unless she helps Jon, her victory in winning the IT from mad queen Cersei would be a hollow and futile one, because she’d soon be queen of an icy wasteland of annihilated and wighted people (and probably dead herself, unless she flees to the Summer Isles or somewhere… Hm, maybe Naath, with Missandei…)

      But will cersei let them fight WW peacefully… She will be causing problems..

      Rightnow i guess it may happen something like dany gives up the fight against cersei and fights WW …
      Cersei selfishly wanting to cause a problem somehow end up dying and once the war is over dany is elected as the queen because of her act in the war..

      Dragons are not magical to the Targaryens. Dragons are their heritage. Dragons existed among the people, they were somewhat tamed. White Walkers have not been seen in thousands of years, anyone who saw them last has been lone gone for generations, except for the children of the forest and the children of the forest are also mythical to the humans of Westeros. Dragons are part of factual history, White Walkers exist in old wives tales and such.

    167. I got a theory regarding the leaks [ spoiler ] What if Jon, Gendry, Davos and Jorah go to the wall just because they come to know about the arrival of Bran at the wall. Bran decides not to cross the wall realizing that he may break the magic or whatever that is holding the Walkers. Jon goes to meet him up and meets the BWB too. Then maybe due to a possible attack on East watch they go to a fight. And Bran alerts Benjen and maybe even Danaerys in advance through some magic and they both arrive as saviours. This may happen over a couple of episodes. Anyhow the spoilers seem disappointing. [/ spoiler ]

      If she [Dany] is not Queen then I wonder why jongoes and asks her for assistance..

      Maybe because he sees her as a fellow “rebel” ally against Cersei’s rule?

      Also, the advantages of a fire-breathing air force would be obvious to Jon – only being burned or eaten to the bone seem to kill wights.

      He has to make Dany inderstand this. I hope it goes well. In the filming spoilers,

      they seem to be on amicable terms, even having some one-on-one convo without guards or advisors.

      I don’t know about any Jon/Dany “romance”. Maybe D&D are laying the groundwork for it to come to frution in S8? Before one or the other tragically and heroically dies? (I’m leaning on Jon doing the ultimate sacrafice in the Heart of Winter and Dany left to heal the kingdom(s) and bring forth a better world – no easy task!)

    171. jdtargstark,

      LOL If you even bothered to read what I wrote then you could have said some of whining ..

      I not even said she is queen of westeros ..

      I very carefully said that she has the support of three kingdoms reach,dorne ,dragonstone and part of iron islands

      So saying she is Queen of nothing is stupid. .since jon as you know is king based on the support of north and vale and possibly riverrun
      Which leaves cersei with crownlands and westernlands

      And I even used example of stannis who controlled less than dany does ..but still considered as a king

      If something I said is false in my post then bring up that otherwise stop with your attack on dany fans while you are doing the same

      Agreed, there are too many people against her. Varys/Olenna/Tyrion are among the smartest people and they’re advising Dany. The Tyrells and Martells provided Dany with ships, they’re not going to want to bring the Lannisters into the fold. They want to destroy Cersei and because she alienated herself like that her people will probably starve without the food from the Reach. Dany’s going to approach it like she did in Meeren, she’s saving the people of KL from an evil ruler.

With 13 episodes left, the two most important endgame things have to established quickly. Defeating the WWs, and bringing peace, prosperity, security to Westeros (for me, preferably by getting rid of the feudal system).

      But see nobody is calling a rebel or king of nothing ..he is king in the north .
      Likewise dany is queen of south with dorne.,reach and dragonstone .so she is not queen of anything as some suggest is wrong which was what I was arguing against ..

      Yes she would understand the Situation and danger ..even though if she had doubts at first she will come to believe him..

      I believe it will be opposite ..there is too much foreshadowing of jon as king ..so I think jon will be the one who survives..
      I would like both of them to survive and take up that job

      Jenny,

      Apparently she does not ..

      I do wonder how the prophecy of valonqor and YmBQ will come to play in this sirutaion ..

    178. dragonbringer,
      Do the people of Westeros really consider Daenerys as the legitimate heir to the throne ?

      The last Targaryen king was a mad man who arbitrarily murdered people he did not like while his eldest son is mainly remembered for abducting and raping a young woman (and getting killed by Robert Baratheon). As for their ancestors… Between Baelor who starved himself to death to remain “pure”, Oris who fell victim to his brother’s treason and the cavalcade of deaths produced by the Dance of Dragons, the population has more than a couple of reasons to doubt the Targaryens’ suitability as monarchs.
      Would they welcome Daenerys with open arms ? Hmm… It remains to be seen. Daenerys is used to be perceived as a saviour, celebrated as a “breaker of chains” by the slaves she frees. But Westerosis are not enslaved and she has yet to make clear what “wheel” she intends to destroy. To top it off, she comes supported by foreign troops infamous for their raping, murderous ways and she has three WMDs that vomit fire. I would not be surprised if the population of Westeros first thought of her endeavour as an aggressive foreign invasion.
      Which would be interesting in and by itself because it could cause Daenerys to question herself and her purpose. Introspective Daenerys is my favourite Daenerys ! 😉

      I believe we may be a bit too caught up in the “birthright” aspect of things which is not, in and by itself, suprising or illegitimate a concern considering the characters we follow and empathise with do care about this kind of things. However, we also have to acknowledge the pragmatic reality as the story sometimes does.
      Cersei is not less legitimate to sit on the throne than her late husband Robert was : he won a war by killing the people who stood on his way (as did his wife); he ended up on the throne as a result of it (and so did she). The whole “Robert had Targaryen blood through his grandmother so he had a claim to the Iron Throne” spiel is a posteriori justification to maintain a semblance of continuity as the characters themselves at times admit : Cersei mentioned that Ned was the first to enter the throne room while King’s Landing fell and she openly stated that, had he chosen to sit on it, he would have become King of the Seven Kingdoms and maesters would probably have named the war “Ned’s Rebellion”. Yet, the Starks have no Dragon blood whatsoever…

      Birthright is not the be all and end all of monarchy or legitimacy. After all, Aegon I and his sisters had no rightful claim over Westeros. What they did have was a trio of dragons and they were not afraid to use it. So they won and everybody ultimately bent the knee. ^^

      Couldn’t agree more with this. All of it especially the Cersei bit. The valonqar needs to take care of business, he’s been slacking off for far to long. Also, I want to see the Mad Queen make King’s Landing fly, I mean, burn.

      To cap it all, the media outlets are trying to validate these by using Nathalies tweets about spoiling the show, when she was clearly referring to the leaked pics/vids we’ve been getting all week.

    181. dreamshade,

      Exactly my thoughts. Moreover, Cersei already has a wight aka Frankenmountain and she may have more of them in Qyburn puts his innovative technlogy into mass production. One way or another, a walking dead would be the last thing to scare her. And of cause there was that precedent with a wight hand which impressed no-one. Besides that, there is no time: IMO Jon’s departure will be in Ep 6, and he will be going right to KL.
      BTW, regarding wight-dragon. I don’t believe the Night King could reanimate a dragon out of the blue: first of all he has no means to kill a dragon and there was no setup making possession of such means believable. From what we saw so far dragons can be injured/killed with spears; ballistas would be very handy, but it’s the weapon of men, not the WW. Warlocks also had some ideas and/or means allowing them to incapacitate dragons at least temporarily (and warlocks appear in Euron’s entourage in the books); finally Qybur has discovered some reanimation technology (I guess he used the above-mentioned hand of the wight and somehow infected the Mountain with a sort of zombie-virus), and if he gets a dragon (dead or incapacitated by the warlocks), I can perfectly see him trying his invention on the dragon too. Whether it’s going to work I don’t know, but I can imagine that becoming the cause of Tyrion’s suicide mission to KL (he is the only person other than Dany that dragons trust).
      One way or another, I think that the war for KL will turn into the war for dragons (one or two ow them) which will be lost around Ep 3 during Dany’s first encounter with Euron and Cersey and that will motivate Jon’s active involvement which will eventually pave him the way to the Iron Throne. That’s the only layout that makes sense to me, though I may be wrong about details.

      Do we know that?

      There’s been no indication in the show or books that “the people” consider Dany as the rightful heir at this moment.

      In the books,

      there’s been a couple of indications that some smallfolk yearn after the good old times under Targ rule, after they’ve been subjected to the War of the Five Kings. In one of Arya’s chapters in ACOK, some smallfolk yearn for “the old king” (=the Mad King Aerys II) because his reign was mostly peaceful to the smallfolk (mostly thanks to Tywin Lannister, the Hand of the King), and then in a Brienne chapter in AFFC, Nimble Dick tells Brienne that they’re all Targ loyalist on Crackclaw Point, which is a thinly populated, dismal and poor region. We’re nowhere told there’s an underswell specifically for Dany. In fact, most people aren’t aware of her.

      I grant you that there seems to be an underswell against the current Lannister regime, or any “lordly” regime (that’s what the sparrows movement was/is all about, similar to “peasants revolts” in late medieval Europe), not necessarily for Dany, or anybody else, ATM.

      This season basically everyone meets everyone! 🙂

      Not quite. Sandor, the BWB, Sansa, Sam, Bran and Arya aren’t included. At least the first five had their respective reunions last season. I’m exceedingly keen that Arya, the heretofore Lone Wolf, be reunited with her family and friends (and direwolf, hopefully) at last.

      Jenny: Cersei has ALWAYS been delusional. Jaime defenestrated Bran, but Cersei urged it. And she thought the ends justified the means of allowing the nobility and priesthood of Kings Landing be smithereened, as if those two moves would solve anything. She seemed to also think Joffrey was good, sweet, and worthy. But her biggest delusion is that she can and does outsmart everyone. In the short term she’s right, but at such anguishing cost. Long term, she’ll be proven wrong.

      About the leaks: IMO they’re plausible and probably right in some particulars, but a stopped clock is right twice a day. They seem rather predictable and sentimental as well, though I find some of the plot turns satisfying.

I’ve picked up a few things here from context, but I must say that I believe the biggest problem with us getting too much information too soon can be our downfall. I’ve been really excited about what I’ve read here, but today I certainly read too much by reading other’s posts. It’s LONG time to next summer and a LONG winter is ahead of us. I love WOTW cause I know if I read something here it’s honest, but all this talk about the “he-who-shall-not-be-named” leaks has caused so much controversy and I don’t want to spend the next 9 months reading pointless arguments. We can all agree that we will NOT agree on every scene and nuance in S7, but could we just tone it down for at least 6 or 8 months? I’d like to enjoy WOTW without the “debates” to put it nicely.

      He only did damage to ceerain lords and commonfolks never care about that..
      And even in the rebellion he did have his supporters..
      Its funny that his son is remembered for not the things you mentioned ( maybe you are influenced by the show ) but about good things and how capable he is .if they were hated so much I don’t know why Robert was in such a hurry to kill dany.
      I guess we have to ignore aegon ,jahaerys,egg,daemon ,maekar.,etc

      And we have people of old town drinking in the name of dany as the rightful heir .

      Yes she does bring a powerful army ..yes there is no slaves to free…
      But you know what is westeros full of ..damaged and suffered because of civil wars between the kingdoms and now currently ruled by a mad queen

      How aweful dany comes to westeros with a powerful army who can quickly put an end to all the wars within the kingdoms overthrow a mad queen ..and most of the times don’t even need to go to battle to win ..which will in turn result people being happy

      And speaking about those WMD’s spitting fire…they are scary enough people are looking forward to them or wishing to have them at the wall to help…and she brings them at the time when ice creatures who seem to be affected by only fire …

    188. Stark Raven’ Rad,
      I would like to play devil’s advocate just a teeny wee bit (^^)

      Cersei knew Joffrey was a monster. She refered to it on quite a few occasions with the prime example being when she told Tyrion : “you always hear the terrible ones were terrible babies. ‘We should have known, even then we should have known.’ It’s nonsense. Whenever he was with me, he was happy. And no one can take that away from me. Not even Joffrey. ”
      She was very much aware of his pathological personality and behaviour; she might even have known she was responsible for some of it, by infusing her son with an overblown sense of self-importance and righteousness. But she loved him wholeheartedly and would have killed anyone who threatened him in any way, shape or form, regardless of how lamentable and dangerous she knew him to be.

      On a broader note, Show Cersei is nowhere near as delusional as her Book counterpart. She can be quite astute when she takes the time to think things through. Like her father, she has an inbuilt sense of what the ruthlessness the feudal power system (which is, for all intents and purposes, similar to gang or mob warfare) relies on… To quote The Usual Suspects : “They realized that to be in power, you didn’t need guns or money or even numbers. You just needed the will to do what the other guy wouldn’t.”
      Castamere… Sept of Baelor… ^^

      Unfortunately, she also happens to be remarkably bitter and have little to no impulse control. So she takes everything personally and overreacts to the nth degree which tends to take her from one chaotic crisis to the next, making things increasingly worse along the way.

    191. dragonbringer,
      I may have misrepresented my own views but I do not believe I stated that everyone in Westeros will hate Daenerys on sight just because she is a Targaryen. I do not think that. Nor do I think that the Dragons have no loyal partisans left in the Seven Kingdoms. I am certain they do.

      I was merely reacting to your hypothesis that the Westerosi population, as a whole, will acknowledge Daenerys as the rightful heir and greet her happily… While some may very well react in as positive a manner, others might feel justifiably ill-at-ease with her arrival.
      – The Dothrakis do not have a good reputation in Westeros (nor do they deserve one, to be honest). They are known as raping, pillaging and murdering conquerors. They may have pledged to stop such practices but a) how confident are we supposed to be that they will not revert back to their ancestral customs ?; b) the Westerosi know nothing of that pledge; c) there are 10,000 Dothrakis. I believe the prospect of such an army being unleashed onto them would make many Westerosi nervous, at the very least.
      – The dragons will be very useful against the White Walkers, of that there seems to be little doubt. However, from what we gather, the overwhelming majority of the Seven Kingdoms’ population knows nothing of the threat from beyond the Wall. All they will see, initially at least, are three fire-breathing machines that can and will turn them into shish kebabs.
      – Robert wanting to kill Daenerys was indeed motivated by his desire to eliminate a potential claim on the throne (which Daenerys of course does have); however, it was equally brought forth by King Bobby’s hatred of anything Dragon and / or Rhaegar related.

      As for the Targaryens’ legacy, some will stand by and celebrate it, some will be appalled by and condemn it. But I doubt there will be an immediate or even eventual popular consensus on the benefits of allowing another Targaryen on the throne.

      Yeah, it would be MY preference for the end of the feudal lordships – because I haven’t seen that the common people are all that well-off in Westeros. But yes, let’s have at least the beginning of an enlightened era which indicate that could be a future direction. I guess I differ in my opinion from a lot of the posters here in that I don’t believe this elaborate series is ONLY about defeating the zombies… errr…. WWs. After spending 8 years, and 8 seasons, there has to be another, more lasting message – and just going back to lordships and Kings and Queens and courts, would fall quite flat for me. 🙂

      moiaf: All of it especially the Cersei bit. The valonqar needs to take care of business, he’s been slacking off for far to long. Also, I want to see the Mad Queen make King’s Landing fly, I mean, burn.

      If the Dragonpit scene is indeed in KL, then parts of KL would have been burnt by the time Daenerys lands in KL. So at least I would like a Cersei-free KL by the end of the season. I would much prefer it if the valonqar finished his business this season too, but if not, she should retreat back to CR, never to be seen at KL again.

      I’ll take a shot at it. Jon was proclaimed King, people knelt before him. Jon, as of right now, is a legitimate King in the North. The Tyrells, The Martells and half the Greyjoys have sworn their support for Daenery Targaryen, they will support her claim to the Targ throne which just happens to be the throne of what was once known as the 7 Kingdoms. That is the key part, she, and Stannis for that matter, can proclaim themselves monarchs as often as they want but until one of them takes ownership of the seat of the King/Queen of the Westeros, the King/Queen of that Kingdom is whoever sits on the throne with a crown in his/her head. No one doubts that sooner or later Dany will be able to overthrow Cersei and reclaim “what’s [hers]” but until she does, she is as much Queen of Westeros as Stannis was King. This is not a slight against her. So try not to take it that way.

      You keep throwing it out there and while I try to ignore it I just have to comment about it again. Your Dr. Qyburnstein’s Dragonmonster… it’s really the worst idea/theory you have imo. If that were to happen it may just be the most awful thing in the entire series. I mean, it would fall in the “oh my gawd that’s dumb” category if I had to watch it. Sorry, just honesty.

      While I don’t believe what he’s done to animate The Mountain is the same thing as R’hllor (supposedly) giving back life or the wights, perhaps he could do the same with a dragon. Still, people have already thought the resurrection card has been played too much so I think continued monster making would be old from the start. The other question I made in a previous comment was why do you think that Qyburn, Cersei or anybody would be able to control this dragonmonster? Who’s to say that the dragon wouldn’t just rampage on everyone or even continue to obey Daenerys?

      It’s also interesting that you think it’s more outlandish that the NK would be able to kill a living creature. He’s a magical being with weapons made of ice and can break spells by touching the ground for starters… I think he has the means to get it done.

      Yes, this is what I mean by there being instances in the books of support shown to the old Targaryen regime, and, in this instance, among Citadel students (unusually educated, informed and interested in such matters), specifically for Dany. (And the Citadel students don’t actually agree on this point, but you conveniently left out the rest of the quote.)

      It is not an overwhelming, common sentiment throughout the Seven Kingdoms at this point. I hope it will be, but at the moment it is not.

    201. Daenerys, by accepting Yara’s terms (independence for the Iron Islands), has basically created a legal/diplomatic precedent for every kingdom. This means Daenerys can be Queen of a part of Westeros, the Greyjoys on the Iron Islands, Jon Stark in the North.

    202. ACME,

      I totally agree with all you said about Dany’s perception in Westeros and I think the costume designers made a conscious choice dressing Dany almost like Cersey. What is the difference between two squabbling queens? Haircut, – that’s what Westeros would say. So, yes hardly we can expect the people to rally behind her.

      The one who they might rally behind is Jon. He is local, he has always been humble and modest, served the realm while others were tearing it apart etc. And his power is growing rapidly: he is the KITN with the Vale affiliated and the Riverlands can be expected to join his camp by mid season. Even the Stormlands might start looking at him (they should know that Brienne of Tarth serves the Starks), and the Reach is also not excluded: if Ollena and/or the Tarlies are killed, Jon’s best friend and promoter Sam may become quite influential.

      As for the Crownlands and the Flee Bottom of KL in particular, Jon would be the most compelling choice too: basically a self-made man with a noble blood and a great reputation. And Gendry who is primed to become the voice and face of the Flee Bottom might see Jon as an inspiration for his own quest, and there is also a factor of Arya who could have told Gendry a lot of good things about her half brother.
      All in all, I feel that it will be the Flee Bottom who will become an ultimate king-maker. Those who don’t like parallels with recent revolutions may check the Hussite Uprising or the story of John I of Portugal who clearly is Jon’s historical prototype.

      And Jon is already playing front and center of the Team-Dragonstone.

      So, it looks like we should prepare a new chant for him.

      I was just trying to say most people of westeros do recognize the claim of dany..Robert wanting to kill her also comes from the fear of recognising that claim ..
      But that doesn’t mean she can walk and climb the throne while others stand up and step aside..
      She must fight for it

      Yes no one knows about WW but that will change this season..the same season dany will arrive..

      Regarding dothraki I believe there are more than 10000 they will obey their TSWMTW and do as she say ….and if you look at it they are now being united ..lead by a female and crossed the poison water
      ..they are in for a change and they are changing for good .

      On one one hand she has dothraki on the other hand she has unsullied who are comolete complete opposite of dothraki’s ..

      So much is focused on how dothraki and ironborn and dragons and how they are viewed ..
      Most of the time people fail to see what such a big army can do ..and how quickly it can end all the civil wars and be united to face a threat can kill everyone human

      Danny,

      Well then we must wait for sometime to have all of the kingdoms kneel and swear fealty to her..

      OK. Franken-dragon is silly, but the wight-dragon is super wise, because the NK has superpowers and can do whatever he likes, right? I assume he can fly too: that would be required to take out a dragon. And if he can fly, why would he need a dragon at all? He must fart fire himself, right?

      In GoT even magical powers are built on the basis of a certain setup. And as for the dragons, we saw that they were able to control dragons for a certain period of time: they were not spitting fire at them until their mommy told them to. So, what was the point of the HOTU plot? Show some visions and be done with that? And why would be the warlocks reappearing in Euron’s story? Just for fun?

      And it’s pretty obvious that this season Dany will be losing some of her dragons to Cersey and Euron. How can Cersei be in control of KL in Ep 5, if Dany controls the air? How could Yara be captured, if Dany controls the air? Or you imagine that Dany will be sending her allies out without air coverage to have more time for hanging with Jon Snow on the battlements of Dragonstone? Thank you.

      If you want to criticize, give arguments, please. Liking/not liking is not an argument.

      Well I don’t know when exactly this “leak” came out- oldest reference I can see is 5 days ago.

      By which time a LOT of the believable stuff mentioned in it had already been revealed here or elsewhere.

      The exception (which seems to lend credibility to it) are recent events we’ve seen in the last few days, but most of those events had already been predicted and discussed here at length- we’d guessed the locations that Zumaia etc would cover and many of these recent events are logical plot developments.

      The rest is just plain fanwank.

      On another note (while we’re on the subject of fanwank), I’m pleased to see Jon’s departure from Dany was amicable, amiable and totally and unquestionably PLATONIC. 😊

      Why would you want Jon Snow to sleep with his Aunt? The series has enough men grovelling at Dany’s feet. Sadly, it’s becoming more and more apparent that this is all heading to a Disney ending. It doesn’t matter how many people die as long as Barbie and Ken get together at the end, how stereotypical and those of us who know Martin’s writing know he is anything but stereotypical.

      So far a lot of things comes true. Sure, plot point, details or some things missing context but a lot of it’s true. Even the unbeliveable stuff such as mission North.

      What did you expect. Jon and Dany to kiss or hug? They barely know each other. Jorah kissed her hand or bowed. Maybe both since they know each other.

      Not necessarily. We only see them leaving on the same small boat. They’re not gonna row all the way to KL in that boat but will board larger ships out at sea. So they won’t necessarily be on the same ship or going to the same destination.

      When I read it first, I thought no way D&D are doing this. It sounds ridiculous but it’s because of missing context. When you put it like that person did, it sounds 15 years old fanfic and I don’t blame your scepticism. I was there before you. Couple of things sounds cool but for example Jon’s name nah, that is something not many people will like.

      Ned raised Jon. He never gave him the Stark name but like Cat recounted in the books, Ned called him son for all the north to see. So that’s one thing. Robert, on the other hand, never knew Gendry existed. Would he have cared? More than likely, no.

      Aw heck, I don’t care what colors Gendry wears, I’m glad he’s back. But why not? He almost died for being a Baratheon, even though few besides Melisandre knew of his bloodline. He might as well live as a Baratheon, imho. As far as what Robert would think, I think he would laugh his rotund ass off in delight that one of his offspring was lucky enough to survive the total calamity of Cersei, and let the world know that he, Gendry, is around to carry the Baratheon name. Oh my gosh, I called Gendry lucky for surviving. I hope that’s not a total jinx.

      Also, if he is now an ally of Jon’s, that’s kind of a soothing thing, that a friendship between the Starks, Targaryans and Baratheons thrives to now make peace and protect the land, rather than tear it all apart because of personal pride. They will leave it better than they found it, which is what Dany declared as her goal.

    223. In this photo it appears as though Dany is crying. Clearly she is upset at Jorah’s leaving so him going more than likely is him being forced to go for some reason (obligation, honor, something that needs to be done that only he can do). The nights watch is decimated and might be in need of a new lord commander so this could be a final goodbye if Jorah is to fulfill his father’s wish. Or, for the battle north, Jon is in need of a general and Jorah also feels he needs to go.

      Jon is a bastard Dany is not.

      LET´S RAMBLE!
      Dany is a Targ, officialy Jon is a Snow/Stark, if he conveniently switches to Targ then he is no king in the north. The North wants independence, Dany will give independence to whomever follows a new order (lets say new international pro social justice policy) because she conquers by ideology, she doesn´t need a united kigdom as long as they follow the ideology (the key to real unity, her treaty with the greyjoys stands for that), if jon claims the throne he loses the north to the true heirs Sansa and Bran, he can´t have both, he loses Dorne and highharden, the iron islands because they already chose Dany, with Dany he has them all plus probably casterly rock via tyrion and jaime, if jon claims the throne he loses the war for the dawn too because not even Dany will give 2 shits about such thing once she finds out about the long night, I mean she stayed in Mereen to help slaves and learn how to be a good ruler, Dany´s idea of ruling is to protect the common people against the powerful and she conquers by ideolofy first, if he claims the throne and Dany offers to fight against the long night just like she did with the masters then Jon is doomed.

      Aegon conquered the 7 kingdoms, then his linage got the throne, Dany is his descendant and basically his second coming, Dany has right by conquest, any bastards claim is invalid against what the iron throne stands for but I´m pretty sure Dany will lose interest in the throne as soon as she sets a foot in Westeros. Jon´s claim is fan service and makes no sense story and character wise, people are chosing their leaders, she has Dorne, highgarden, the iron born and probably casterly rock via tyrion (we all know jaime may fall with cercie). Jon has the free folk, the north maybe the riverlands if edmure grows the fuck up and the vale thanks to Sansa. He has less warriors than Dany and no dragons or fleet. He needs to join her not to go on a power trip for the throne against her.

      I think jon is super smart but the fanfictions about his claim and his ultimate hero role are super dumb. People expect dumb shit for him because they feel it will be satisfiying? A lot of people feel satisfied by dumb shit.

      I agree that some of the “leaks” sound less than ideal…but the success of a filmed plot lies largely in the actual visual execution, not the reductive description; some of the best movies and series of all time have plots that sound, frankly, ridiculous if you simply relied in the verbal descriptions…it all depends on the actual execution…

      As for the accuracy of the “leaks”, well, some of the things mentioned there match what has been filmed so far, and the “leaks” preceded the availability of the photographs, so, perhaps there was some basis in fact? Nothing so far that we’ve seen contradicts them…

      Remember the “leaks” from last year? They were categorically denounced as fan fiction last year by the mods of multiple GOT sites, including this one; so far, crickets in regards to any comments on the veracity of these ones; take from that what you will…

    233. Noneofyourbusiness: Because of the dramatic irony of their sleeping together without knowing their relation.

      Thank god someone noticed that. 😀 I was just thinking about that the other day. It gave me some ‘Oldboy’ vibes, LOL.

      Honestly, I don’t have an issue with the Aunt/Nephew thing if that’s where things go, especially when this series had implanted incest from the very beginning. We didn’t bat an eye at the earlier generations of Targaryens hooking up with each other in an effort to retain their fire-bloodline. When you think of Aegon and his sisters conquering the land, no one is going EEEEEWWWW INCEST! Everyone is going ‘woah, bad-asses on dragons wielding cool swords. o_o ‘

      We’ve also learned to appreciate Jaime and his redemption arc despite his intimate dealings with Cersei. We understand the extent of his loyalty and devotion to those he cares about, an ironic trait to have for a guy like him. We empathized with Jaime and his loss, even Cersei. We saw their children as human beings; not mere products of incest that deserved to die. Some of us even rooted for Cersei when she confessed to Septa Unella over her love to her family; she wouldn’t allow anyone to dictate her feelings, no matter the taboo. Even in the times we wish for Jaime to leave Cersei, it’s because we know she’s not good for him as a person. We’re more offended by Cersei’s actions, behavior, and words than her relation to him.

      We’ve given GRRM plenty of credit for creating rich, fully dimensional characters despite any taboos that surround them. We’ve also accepted that this Westeros world will challenge us and our comfort zones. And yet… when a taboo act happens to OUR favorite character we suddenly flip our switch. Suddenly, the story “has gone too far”, “become predictable” or “got cheesy”. Suddenly, the writing is crap and we come up with a million reasons why it can’t go down this way.

      But taboo things happen to anyone at any time. They don’t just conveniently happen to secondary characters, or the ‘bad guys’, or characters we aren’t invested in. Taboo acts don’t miraculously stop because we want them too. GRRM keeps the playing field open to anyone. Through his story and characters he proves no person is above taboo. He also reveals that some taboos are nowhere near as terrible as others. What people do in the privacy of their bedrooms is their business, not ours.

      If Jon are Dany are meant to be together, so be it. And if their relationship sounds ‘predictable’ it’s because thousands of readers have had plenty of time to speculate over this possibility FOR YEARS. Hell, people whined about Jon’s true heritage, insisting R+L was too ‘predictable’. But it only *became* predictable because several readers who paid extra attention to the book’s details decoded the mystery years in advance for everyone.

      If GRRM’s fantasy actually does incorporate a Dany/Jon thing, I suspect he’ll have to work THREE TIMES harder to make it work since enough people are ready to accuse this pairing as being predictable or cheesy. It doesn’t even matter if this was GRRM’s original vision/direction. People are ready to come down with the wrath of God if it ends this way. I find that kinda sad since the narrative should be free to go whichever way it needs to go.

      He is actually stereotypical, he only writes it as if he wasn’t. When you are writing is never the what, is the how. In thousands of years of civilization, there is no story that hasn’t been told, no character you haven’t met before. The only new thing storytellers can do to seem original is to find innovative ways to tell you the same tale so that you can see it in a new light. Also you have it wrong, Jon and Dany may get together and even fall for one another but a happy ending for both is very unlikely. One will be sacrifice to the anti-cliche, anti-stereotypical Gods to appease the masses.

      Ah ha now I get it. Miss Dany has herself 3 nice big dragons but the lore of the WW just isn’t as believable because there are no remnants such as can be found with the heads of dragons in KL and DS, so after Jon goes on this mission to “prove” to her he is not lying (why would she think he and Davo would lie about such a thing anyway) and gets himself hurt, possibly almost killed, she feels bad and that is why they bang on a boat. She’s nursing him back to health and goes all Gilly on him, partly out of guilt/sympathy and partly cause she realizes he’s a very fine specimen of man.

    236. Kay,

      Why would Dany need 2 episodes to settle in KL? Makes no sense: what would she do?

      IMO,

      Ep 4 will be Jon’s arrival to Dragonstone and it’s aftermath;
      Ep 5 will be Tyrion’s and Davo’s mission to KL and it’s aftermath (Gendry);
      Ep 6 will be Jorah’s arrival and it’s aftermath (IMO, he will bring some crucial information that will enable a new plan of taking KL from within which is Dany’s favorite tactics, BTW). The episode seams to be closing with Jon’s team going on the mission. It’s pretty clear that he will be commanding the land operation, and I think that Dany will be following him on the dragon shortly afterwards to provide aerial support, when appropriate. Tyrion is a bit of a wild card: I expected him to go to KL with Jon, but apparently he will be having a task of his own.

      As for Theon’s arrival, it may fit into Ep 5 or 6 but one way or another it will be a source of problems (Theon might bring Euron on his tail or something), but one way or another his arrival looks to be triggering some actions of the Team-Dragonstone: IMO that will be either Tyrion’s or Jon’s mission.

      And one more thing I wanted to admit. Neither Varys, nor Grey Worm/Unsullied appear in any of the leaked scenes. We had one photo with them on set in costumes but based on the precedent with Sibel’s Kekilli (Shae’s) appearance in Meereen during the last season shooting Varys and Grey Worm on Dragonstone may simply be a decoy. IMO the Unsullied are made up to play the role of 300 Spartans and I expect them to do that during Dany’s first landing attempt: I expect them to die to the last man buying time for their Queen’s escape. As for Varys, it’s more complicated: in 610 he was on the same boat with the surviving crew (Dany, Tyrion, and Missandei), but they may part ways at some moment during the first landing attempt: Varys may go somewhere to meet his informers or something, and I expect him to be killed by his little birds whom Qyburn transformed into monsters.

    237. I think it was in this thread that I wondered if Jon was leaving Dragonstone without the dragonglass…well, it looks like he managed to get some after all. In the updated pictures there are 2 rectangular boxes sitting on the beach next to the boat and in another picture from that Emilia Clarke website, Jorah is seen lifting one of those boxes into the boat. I think the dragonglass is in those boxes. Hopefully, Jon doesn’t lose this supply like he did his previous one.

      Also I’m really curious who those men are that push the boat offshore. In some of the pictures, I see 2 of the Stark soldiers that arrived with Jon but these new dudes don’t look like Stark men. Something about them makes me think they’re Ironborn. I wonder if they are the men who arrived with Theon and remain allied with Dany, and maybe she sends them to accompany Jon and Co. on their mission.

      I can’t wait to find out what spoilery goodness we get tomorrow.

All they’ve seen is people arriving in little boats, shaking hands, and talking. Those guys stationed on Dragonstone probably feel a bit cheated.

      Well, any insight that I can give you is publicly known, but I think you might not be totally up to date, so:

      The backtrack was an admitted falsehood. As for the leaks, much of what they said is being confirmed quite specifically by the filming in the Basque Country, clearly. There is no denying that, but there is also no way to know how much of the leak is actually correct until the show airs. Still, it’s fair to say the leaker knows something. Nevertheless, it’s the policy of WOTW not to discuss leaks like this here, as it doesn’t pertain to the spoilers revealed in the report. The forums are the place for that kind of thing 😉

      Yeah I too think that the scene with Varys and Grey Worm was a continuation of the landing scene so I think they will film the landing in daytime.

      ghost of winterfell,

      Yeah maybe that scene is not on the beach.She probably lands in the castle and they will film it some place else.Also I really want to see that scene lol.

    251. Jenny,

      I want the exact opposite scene ..
      Dany and Ghost ..its my crackpot that dany actually saw jon in HOTU with wolf head…so she may realize as soon as she sees ghost …we already have Mel and ghost bonding I expect something similar ..

      ghost of winterfell,

      Yeah there is supposed to filming done in the caves …so that seems more likely.

    252. dragonbringer,

      What do you mean Hotu?The red wedding scene?You think that was Jon?My crackpot theory is that when she heard the wolf howling in ADWD Jon was dying at the same time.

      So the season ends with them rocking the boat while going north but considering the wall falls maybe they will regroup at Winterfell and that’s where Dany will meet Ghost??

      she is not a good Leader by any means… she is a conqueror but not a leader/ etc she is like Robert he won the war but he wasn’t suit for leadership…. she “conquered Meeren etc.” but she lefts them worst….no system etc.
      If you said that make Jon the King of the seven is a fan service… is most Fan service do the same with Dany… and about the Army she had they are summer soldiers not winter soldiers… they are going to died, in case you don’t remember Stanni’s army they were from the south and they were suffering because the winter…
      she is not invincible..

    254. Jenny,

      Yeah, I would love to see

      Jon interacting with any of the dragons. I wonder if they will sense the Targ blood in him. In the books, they were somewhat fond of Brown Ben Plumm and he was a very distant Targ.
      As for Dany meeting Ghost, that might happen if HBO manages to find the budget for him in some place they haven’t looked yet.

    255. ghost of winterfell,

      Of course they are going to sense he has Targ blood.They’ll love him lol.And yeah if we want to see Ghost we need to raise the money ourselves.But hey apparently we will see Ghost before Jon leaves Winterfell so at least that’s something.

      That would work too .

      Too elaborate on my crackpot theory …you remember the dreams jon have about crypts those will always have a feast in winter fell..and since all the starks are dead and jon ( man- wolf – man)now stabbed…so he isthe appealing mute king waiting for dany with the wolf head because ghost is mute.

      I don’t remember the full details since it was one of my earlier theories years ago and labelled as crackpot ones.

    257. Jenny,

      Yeah i have the same feeling about meeting bran…i would like to see what bran thinks about other characters like dany tyrion and jorah

    258. Myname,

      Basically, Jon’s team is a mixture: two men in Stark armor; Ironborn (?), two guys from KL Flee Bottom (Davos and Gendry), and Jorah Mormont who must have an ace up in his sleeve. Dragonstone Dream Team United. Cersei & Euron have no chance.

    259. Hello. I am not posting any supposed leaks but i just want to add some possible explanations. An individual (s) was aware in advance of shooting on the set we have seen this past week in pictures. This person or persons was aware what actors are filming and what scenes. (So and so is arriving by boat and will be met by so and so.) However, the actual details and story still remain a mystery. From my understanding the original detail of these scenes when they were first posted either was later left out and replaced with a general outline after poster deleted their account. Also it is known fact that emilia and kit are filming in iceland in january. It was also proven on grrm official site that there are no ice dragons in the world of ice and fire. Ice dragons are included in the details. I am not trying to burst anyones hopes but the actual scripts themselves are kept under lock and key. Several people who work on set know what characters arrive by boat in advance of the actual shooting of the scene for example.But the details are an entirely different thing.

      She is the best leader in GOT, She did impossible things in thousand and thousand years even Tywin would fail so badly if he tried to what she did, are you kidding? Jon Snow is so bottom in list of leaders, even 10 year old kid would be better than him at ruling NW, dude is good fighter but as leader he sucks so hard

    261. Asoiaf fan,

      Ah my friend he posted the details roughly a month ago way before any of the filming started or anybody reported any spoilers.I saw it with my own two eyes.It’s too specific.And I didn’t know it was a known fact Emilia and Kit would be filming in Iceland.When was that confirmed?And it’s not an Ice Dragon.It’s a wight dragon which are two different things.

      Eh, I think your perspective of their prowess as leaders is one of the shows great weaknesses compared to the books. Without spoiling any book details, Jon is an extremely thoughtful and resourceful leader as well as a good fighter. Dany is best when she has her advisers about. But still no one is worse than Cersei. She’s a burning sept if you get my drift…

      dragonbringer,

      I would like to see more Bran period but he hasn’t been the luckiest in that department

      Part of the problem with Bran has been that his book material post A Clash of Kings is limited because he enters into the position of knowing too much; his chapters are few and far between to avoid giving too much away. That is how we ended up with both the stay at Craster’s Keep in season four and Bran taking a year out in season five – the book material needed to be padded out. I think that D&D have now encountered a similiar problem in that too much time with Bran = the potential to give too much away to the viewer too soon. That said, now that we are entering the final stretch of episodes, we have to see more of Bran to establish the extent of his powers, and because what he knows is becoming imminently relevant. I believe Bran to be one of the main, end-game characters, so I think we will see more of him in season seven – and definitely more in season eight.

      I also think the lack of screen time he gets is a shame, because both in the show and in the books, Bran is one of my favorite characters.
