    1. When Winter comes for war,
      You shall hear no Lions roar.
      When Winter forces you to yield,
      No Stags shall graze upon the field.
      When Winter creeps upon you from the shadows,
      No Roses shall bloom from the meadows.
      When Winter wreaks havoc on the land,
      You can bet there’ll be no Snakes in the sand.
      When Winter brings to life all it finds grim,
      The Krakens will freeze where they swim.
      When Winter sets and the land begins to shiver,
      The Flayed Man will start to rot and wither.
      When Winter fights to the last sliver,
      No more Trouts shall swim in the river.
      When Winter ravages and all despair,
      No Falcons shall fly high in the air.
      When Winter shows you what happens when snow falls,
      Not even the Dragon’s Breath shall warm you in your halls.
      When Winter comes with all its might,
      Only the Wolves shall howl in the night.

    3. I would say that is a MAJOR spoiler in that second comment. But then again, it’s an official major spoiler so… also, completely predicted by virtually everyone & their mother.

    6. GeekFurious,

      Just because people are speculating doesn’t mean it’s cool to post it so openly.

      This thread is meant to be spoiler free until 9 PM. Not fair to many who have tried very hard to remain spoiler free to screw them a few hours before the episode

    8. I’m mighty pleased with myself right now. I’ve been keeping myself busy all day.

      The episode premieres at 3 am my time. Right now I’m enjoying a nice glass of red wine and some chips and should be able to fall asleep around midnight my time. Which means I only have app. 1½ hours left before nighty night time and when the alarm goes off in the middle of the night? Well, it’s GAME OF THRONES TIME!! Yay!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    11. When I click on the episode listing on Comcast, it has a synopsis which is a bit more detailed, although still quite vague, and it doesn’t touch on anything we haven’t already seen in the preview. I’ll put it under spoiler code, though:

      Tyrion counsels Daenerys on the upcoming campaign; Jon and Sansa discuss their future; and trials being in King’s Landing.

      Well What is cool for the spider is freaking out material for the fly, it will be up to you when it airs, i can tell you certainly that 50% will enjoy that and 50% wont, but that is the regular experience in this show and in this page particularly.

      P.D: im the spider on this case, for me it was pleasure.

    14. So excited for tonight!

      Then it will be time to rewatch all past seasons for the umpteenth time.

      And can I just say, from someone who has enjoyed the musical scores by Ramin Djawadi since season 1, he has outdone himself this year. I don’t think there is a single track that I will fast forward. Absolutely beautiful music!

      See you all on the other side of the finale. Cheers!

      Laura,

      Thanks so much for your help!

      I wish I could tell you for certain but if she’s in the episode, they are trying to keep it under their hats! She certainly could be benched for the rest of the season, like Sansa was in season 4 after Mockingbird, but I just find it highly unlikely. We were meant to feel a nice, happy buzz that Arya Stark was finally heading home and then to delay any of the satisfaction of that for a year would be quite cruel!

I have listened to this score already like a dozen times and already have every track name memorized. The music is just gorgeous. Can’t wait to start making new ringtones for my phone.

    20. While I know last week’s big battle for Winterfell was most anticipated for our community.. THIS is the episode I’ve been waiting for…

      and after hearing the theme “Light of the Seven” from the Season 6 soundtrack.. I have a feeling this episode is going to blow our minds and visually devastate us! :oO

    22. Spoilers yet again. I stay away from this site for a week for a variety of reasons (away/the moaners) and I come back to this (Stay away from twitter people, especially Sky Atlantic).

      It has been a terrible week for democracy in my country so I am looking forward to a great hour or so of pure entertainment. It will be a long wait until next season especially given the fact that I don’t watch a lot of TV, but I’m sure this site will help cope with the wait; I just hope the level of moaning decreases, and we can have some proper debates about Season 6, and some interesting speculation about Season 7.

    32. I’m so ready for the finale!

      I have a very very tinfoilery theory:
      Okay, I have thought about all the nonsense-talk if Sansa might be pregnant, but what if a another female could be pregnant to her own advantage? I’ll put the following for the safety in spoiler code even they are just my own thoughts:

      What if Cersei’s card could be that she is expecting a child? Jaime and she had sex and some time have past bye, so it could be possible. And in the earlier fourties women are usually not already in her menopause. And in all society women who are pregnant are not allowed to get a death-sentence. And that could be a reason, why she might give up on Tommen so easily, because she is protecting another child of her own?

      Okay, maybe my theory is very stupid, but I had to get out of my mind in here.

    34. Give me Dany leaving Essos and the Night King in some capacity (don’t even care if it a scene of them just marching forward) and I’ll be a happy camper. Anything short of that will be a massive disappointment for me. Throw in ToJ, wildfire in KL, and Dorne and this could be an instant classic.

      Probably. The only thing that gives me hope is that last week might’ve put HBO on notice. Also, Mother’s Mercy got massive viewers last year and the app didn’t crash (as far as I can remember), but logic tells me it will.

      LF gave them to Cat in S2. Very possible that she had them returned to WF before heading to the RW. Doubt she carried them around with her from battle to battle.

    41. I have question?
      What does people think Aeron Damphairs role is in the show?
      -Yara specifically asked Dany for help murdering not only one, but TWO uncles, which makes me think he will not just be forgotten about once the story moves away from the isles.
      – His fate could be similar to Areo Hotahs in the Dorne storyline. Someone who’s there to flesh out that region but gets killed quickly because their role doesn’t reach further than that. If this is true, I think one of two scenarios is possible. Either he is killed early in s7 when Yara and Dany attack Euron, or he is killed by Euron himself because of Aerons disapproving of Eurons illusions of grandeur and blasphemy, calling himself The Drowned God.
      – Personally I think he’ll stay a little longer, since he is probably there for Euron to have someone to interact with. I Euron becomes a new substantial character, he will have to talk to someone. That could be Aeron going forward. Maybe I’m just hoping this, because I have enjoyed Michael Feasts performance so far and how his character represents the Iron Born religion. Especially his looks and costume is incredible, with the long white hair and the primitive priest robes.
      – What do you guys think?

    42. Violencersei,

      Cersei is not all that old. She was a teen when she married Robert Baratheon. About 17 years passed between Robert’s Rebellion and the start of the show. So she’s probably in her thirties.

      And being pregnant would probably do nothing for her. At most, it would confirm her sleeping with Jamie, a crime of which she’s accused.

      What I really wonder is if we’re going to get less information from filming, this season. I’d guess there will be more and more CGI moving forward, and I think a lot of that is shot on an indoor set. Stuff shot on indoor sets doesn’t tend to get out there the way things shot in public areas gets out there. Oh well, I’ll take whatever I can get, and I know this site will be on top of it!

      Oh, and “season 6 concludes???” hahahahahaha.

      I’d assume they’d be writing or almost done writing quite shortly? So they’d know and it would be decided.

      Unless the season is getting pushed a month back. Even though, they’d be deep in the writing process.

    47. ThankYou!,

      I’m glad you reposted that, as I’d meant to respond to it on another thread, but then lost track of it. Unfortunately, I don’t have any great idea, or even a crappy idea, of what will happen with Aeron. I would certainly like to see more of him, and he’s the only Iron Islands character in whom I really had any interest in the books, and have both enjoyed his performance and loved his look in the show. I hope he sticks around, as he’s the representative of the religion of the Iron Islands, and I’d like to have more about that particular religion, as we’ve gotten lots about The Faith of the Seven, lots about R’hllor, and some about the Old Gods (and I’m guessing we’ll get more about them).

    48. No hype, no speculation and definitely NO SPOILERS !! Just looking forward to what HBO offers.

      For me it will be 2am. Yep, its a shitter tonight’s episode will be the last and then the long wait starts until next year. Still, we’ll have snippets of info to look forward to soon when filming starts again.

      Time to ‘log out’ but will probably check in later with my pennies worth on for how at least for me the finale panned out 🙂

        Quote  Reply

    49. Lord of Coffee,

      What came out from the contract negotiation story last week was that the episodes are still being written, so my guess is that it’s still in flux, Though, as Benioff said before S6, by the time everyone sees tonight’s episode, they’ll understand why we’re so close to the end. They may not know exactly the number, but they know the major story beats, and where they’ll meet GRRM’s books, so the 7-6 episode numbers are probably closer to fact than not.

The synopsis is all about cersei and they chose to put this in the finale so something big has got to happen! Preview was really unrevealing, I just can’t wait to see how the tie this great season off!

What am I going to do for a whole hour and 15 minutes? I might rewatch the first ever episode. I hate waiting up till 2am, but I have to see this episode tonight!

    55. Jack Bauer 24,

      Honestly, it’s a quite boring show based on a glorified romance novel, doesn’t involve any CGI or many different locations like GoT, lacks complexity and has probably about 5 characters. So I guess they can afford even a 2 hour episode if they want to. I prefer quality over quantity anytime. And I’m sure the remaining 13-17 episodes of GoT will be longer than usual.

      Indeed. If we’re not done with Arya yet for this season, I wonder if our first glimpse of her back on the shores of Westeros might not involve a different actress from Maisie Williams – she might decide to go deep undercover until her next mission is completed.

      Been watching the 6 season marathon on HBO since 12:30 and it made me realize how great this season really was. I still choke up watching some episodes. Now that’s great story telling. I think that’s what some of us forget when they start nitpicking about every little thing. It’s somebody’s story that they wrote. If they think they can do better then start writing

      It’s notable because it’s the longest episode they have done to date. Basically HBO allowed them to go over their usual time limit in order to get in all they want to do in this episode. If they needed even more time they probably would have gotten it for the finale. Just because a different show on a different broadcaster has a longer running time for their finale doesn’t mean GoT needs to fill that same amount of time.

    63. So stoked about this episode… And I won’t be able to watch it until 24 hours after it airs in the US – so have to keep away from a lot of the internet on Monday! 😀

      It’s been a great season with admittedly a couple of hiccups. I can’t believe it’s almost over and then the long wait begins… Thankfully some of the worst withdrawals might be alleviated by going off on holiday in a few days. I’ll be going north, to the Norwegian Arctic Sea coast and Norwegian/Finnish arctic wilderness! Already packing my woolleen longjohns in solidarity with all our favourite characters and the winter that apparently finally comes for them! 😀

    64. Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      Thank you for replying. Aeron is one of my favorite characters in the books, but people never seem to want to talk about him on this site, which is quite understandable since he’s a very minor character. I happen to obsess over minor characters however, the ones who help flesh out a certain region or faction.
      On re watches, I love characters like The Spice King who was the very embodyment of Qarth, or Ser Alton Lannister who served as an example of a Lannister who wasn’t arrogant and sly, someone who lived in the shadow of that other family. This broadens the scope of the world and makes it more complex. That is what Aeron does for the Iron Born story, and I’m so glad they included him. As you say, their religion has not been explored as much as other religions, though some great details made it into the show this season, such as the drowning of Euron and especially Aerons speach during said drowning.
      This was actually the season, I think, in which his character fit in the best, because there has been so much focus on different types of worship from The High Sparrows hypocritical Inquisition-style regime or High Priestess Kinvaras charming almost hypnotic demeanor when convincing non believers to Brother Rays happy go lucky peace-preaching. Aeron Damphair signifies a deep and joyless worship that corresponds to the gloomy nature of the Isles themself, and Michael Feast perfectly conveyed that in his short amount of scenes. I just hope he gets fleshed out a little more, give us some more details about his relationship to The Drowned God.

      I loved what Oz wrote in this week’s Looking Forward:

      “At times, Thrones has provided us with so many immensely shocking moments that when we don’t get one, we are prone to do an impression of spoiled brats followed by nitpicking imperfections.

      Let’s not do that. Let’s not be those people. Let’s put it in perspective and enjoy this for what it is… an amazingly entertaining and sometimes controversial imperfect television show.”

      Two Dorne scenes in a whole season is still too much Dorne for me.

      Oh well, maybe a new plot will elevate it, and maybe the SS won’t be so cringeworthy.

      I really hope Varys is there. Ellaria should side with Dany since Doran wouldn’t have. He was a weak little man just like she said. I think Dorne makes perfect sense now if that is what happens.

      Wasn’t she one of the ones in KL? Maybe a KL scene with her, but not a Dorne one. Though I’ve always felt we’d get a certain major character visiting Dorne.

      I think they went back to Dorne. For her and Obara to be in KL since the premiere and now just show up in the city would be weird. Plus, with the trials going down tonight I don’t think them being there would make sense. KL will be focused on Cersei and Loras .

    82. Hello everyone, happy finale episode day!
      I’ve been waiting for this day, running around like crazy, climbing the walls. So hyped for tonight!

      My thoughts: #1. I feel something different will happen at Cersi’s trial–as in she admits Tommen is not a true King, and Jamie’s the father. Then, here comes Gendry!–who would be the true King to the Iron Throne, as he is Robert’s last living son.

      #2. We will see many of Bran’s visions. I hope one of them shows all the deceitful things Littlefinger has done, from the very beginning: with the death of Lysa’s husband Robert Arreyn (sp?) how he set so many tragedies in motion.

      #3. The Tower Of Joy, and what happened to Lyanna Stark and the baby she bore….IT will be answered. I feel this will be in one of Bran’s visions, along with information towards LF.

      #4. We will, to many folks disdain, see Dorne and company. Hopefully–not for long.

      #5. Back to the TOJ–the crown Michele was talking about is for Lyanna Stark; her and Rhaegar are married.

      What I hope happens:
      Margarey survives in KL.
      Cersi torches KL but Arya shows up to kill her and …..Tommen dies in the process. We wont find out if Arya or Cersi survives until next season.
      Jamie kills Walder Frey and Company.
      Jon and Sansa make peace and plan for the future.
      WW bring down the wall.

      Hopefully “No One” was more of a failure due to writing and budget issues rather then directing because “No One” was the only bad (GoT sense of bad) episode this season.

      The reason it was bad IMO was because the huge let down in the logic of the events with Arya and her payoff…

I haven’t even read the books. I loved all of the first five seasons (including Dorne) and have nothing but respect for D & D. I’ve just been disappointed this season. Have I hated every minute of it? Absolutely not, I loved episodes 3 and 7, liked episodes 5 and 6, and thought the premiere was OK. So that’s nearly half the season. Problem is, they’ve set the bar so high and just haven’t been able to live up to it in my opinion.

      Hopefully some good stuff happens this episode and it sets the stage for an awesome season 7 and 8.

      I think it will be shorter but have the same, if not more budget for the many battle scenes and Wight Walker and Dragon stuff.

      So even though the episodes will be less in number, all the complications and budget will be greater in size and complexity.

      So D&D can really have a few episode nine type of stuff scattered here and there throughout the season.

      That is what I think is going to happen.

      Shorter season but way more dense with big budget scenes and events that will make it just as expensive and time-consuming as a 10 episode season if not more. This is the endgame stuff after all…

      On the contrary, the amount of CGI work and battles for the final two seasons will probably be unprecedented in TV history, necessitating increased prep time. Look for GOT to premiere much later this time (especially if D&D decide to finalize all the remaining 13-15 scripts ahead of time) They might, since the visual effects teams might need extra time…

      Yeah, shorter seasons, but harder to make episodes. I remember two years back, when they flirted with the idea of finishing as a feature, GRRM said he thinks it’s a good idea because his ending was planned as the biggest battle in fantasy history (or something like that).

    109. …But to be fair English isn’t my native language,

      For my personal tastes… I’m going to go ahead and say this season (six) is the best. There hasn’t been a ‘down’ episode for me. There have been scenes here and there that I wasn’t thrilled with, usually HS was included, but it wasn’t enough to bring episodes down. As a comparison, when I lent my blu-rays of season 5 to the usual friend I felt the need to tell her it was a little slow but ramped up toward the end.
      I’ve watched every series episode many, many times and I honestly believe this group of S6 as a whole is stronger and more thrilling than any season group. Others have select episodes but not the strength overall. That’s my fresh perspective too from recent viewing, not nostalgia. All just my opinion and perspective of course.

      That is partially because the Emmy voters tend to only focus on a singular episode for shows because of the sheer volume of television they receive.

      I still think it’s about Lady Olenna conspiring to kill Joffrey. So maybe that means the Tyrells will all be taken down this episode.

      2. Who was Lady Olenna writing a letter to before she left King’s Landing/what has she been up to at home?

      Maybe she got a fighting force together and we’ll see them invading KL this episode in the midst of the trials/wildfire chaos.

      3. The last time we say the Brotherhood they said they were going North to help fight the war against the dead.

      Maybe they’ll show up in Winterfell or Castle Black this ep? Or will they be at the Twins to kill the Freys?

      I think there was only 3 ever… The sword being smelted, the Maggy the Frog one and The Hound… But who knows, I am just really excited to see how D&D visually play out the ToJ scene.

      Miguel is doing it, so even if the writing is a little off I think with his camera work no matter what this scene is going to produce goosebumps.

      Arthur,

      Hahaha…I’m well, Arthur…sad to think this is the last episode of the season, but so excited to see what happens.How you doin’?

      Spritey is a mystical creature from a far-off land…
      He visits us, on occasion, to bestow bags of dicks on those he finds irritating.

      Having seen Spritey for a while, good to see that avatar again. Just don’t bestow your bag of dicks on me 😀

    143. I think KL, Winterfell, Mereen, and the Twins will take a massive chunk of time tonight. Around 50 minutes. Throw in a Bran vision or two and that leaves less than 10 minutes for Dorne, Sam, Arya, BriPod, BwB/Hound, Night King and White Walkers, Eddie and the Wall.

      I’m about as far away from CT as one could be, at least and still be in the continental US.

      Miss Stark,

      It’s a great place, and I’m happy you found it!

      As for Aragorn -vs- Dayne, Dayne would win, most definitely…both in terms of skills with a sword and the “dayum, he’s fine as hell” factor…not that Viggo’s any slouch, but still.

      Well when CA gets swallowed up by the ocean (as many scientists predict will happen), A fellow GoT fan like yourself can rest assure there will always be a spot at the dinner table with meat and mead for her… =)

    146. I’ve spent the last few hours watching the marathon. I have no idea how many times I’ve watched BotB all the way through this week but it might be the most in one week of the series for me and still love it. I hope we don’t get a ton of depressing cliffhangers again in this finale to dampen it.

      You are far too kind, Ser, I’ll keep that in mind. On that note, should part of CA fall into the ocean, and I end up with ocean-front property, you pop over and enjoy some meat and mead on the beach. 🙂

      There was a cold-open for season 1, episode 1, now that I think about it (which I was too lazy to do, until you listed the others). I agree with you about Sapochnik. It seems like that man could film a bowl of oatmeal just sitting on a table, and somehow make it so it produced goosebumps (ok, a bit hyperbolic, but you get the idea).

        Quote  Reply

    149. Less than 30 minutes! Gosh, I’m so pumped for this finale – Jon, Dany, Sansa, Tyrion, Bran, Benjen, Davos, wacko Cersei, maybe Ghost (please?). AND, I hope to see Arya. She hasn’t been in the preview or any of the episode pics. But a girl remains hopeful.

    153. I’m watching the Battle of the Bastards again while I wait for the finale to begin. It’s my fifth viewing, and it gets better every damn time I watch it. A masterpiece!

      In particular, I’ve been marveling at some of the supremely beautiful shots that Miguel Sapochnik and his DP Fabian Wagner pulled off. I thought for sure that Wagner would have submitted the episode for Emmy consideration, as Sapochnik did. But he didn’t. He submitted the finale. That mostly likely means that “The Winds of Winter” is going to be even more visually stunning …

      All in all, Season 6 has been phenomenal. I’ve loved watching every minute of it, and I’ve loved discussing it with you all – the best fan community I could ever ask for. All of you are a big part of the reason I love this show so damn much.

      So thank you everyone, and cheers! Enjoy the finale! 🙂

      70 minutes? You mean, we’re getting an extra minute? Wooooo! ?

      I don’t know what the exact average of minutes are per GoT episode but I would guesstimate around 53mins.

      So if you put that in perspective we are getting about 17 extra minutes, which is a really good thing!

      newbietothegame,

      Spritey would not enjoy the things I would make him suffer were he to ever present you with a bag o’ dicks.

      Just in case I’m too busy bouncing off the walls to say this in a few minutes…

      Thanks, all of you, for all the fun, this season.
      I hope to see many of you during the off-season.
      Enjoy the episode, and see you on the flip-side.

      ps – Don’t forget to pee before the episode begins!

      That was answered in the subsequent scene. Tommen told Cersei that the High Sparrow planned to have Margaery do the walk of atonement. Cersei brings that information to Lady Olenna, who then decides to work with Jaime and Cersei to get rid of the Faithful. This was never a mystery.

    161. Chuck,

      Well, since Aragorn, at the time of the Lord of the Rings, was around 90 years young, there’s a good chance he might be an exceptional swordsman. I don’t remember Tolkien being too specific on the matter.

      Dayne, of course, is supposedly the best of the best, so i’d give the edge to Dayne, but would only give 3:2 odds. I don’t think it’s a given that he’d best Aragorn.

    162. Sam,

      Yey!!! ? It was initially listed at 69 minutes, so even that added minute will be so valued and appreciated.

    168. Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      Exactly. There’s no one else at the moment for Euron to play against. I guess there’s those couple of guys we saw at the Kingsmoot but I doubt they’ll be anymore than mere henchmen, if they appear again at all. Which is why I think Aeron will stick around. And if he does, might as well expand on his role a little, at least I hope so. Unless the Euron arc is concluded in the finale. I don’t think so, but it’s a possibility.

    169. Here we are then, another finale followed by another long wait.

      Guess that a legal claim no longer applies for Kingship in Westeros. Be it either King in the North or King on the Iron Throne. Might over right indeed.

      What happens if Bran comes back? His claim is better than Jon’s anyway. If Jon finds out next season, he even isn’t Ned Starks bastard, he comes behind both Bran, Sansa and Arya.

    197. How does Varys get from Dorne to meet with Olenna and Ellaria, and find his way on Danaerys’ flagship all the way a few hours out of Meereen? I know.. the showrunners have to pull a “Lucas” and say they sailed by Sunspear and picked him up. Also, they never explicitly told us who Jon’s real father is, but they make it clear who his mother is, and who’s Jon’s father is truly not. And they still cover her whisper so we cannot hear it all. Great Job D&D.
