Game of Thrones ! (HBO Mini Series) Spoilers......

"We'll try again at supper", coupled with the nervousness of the child about the guards watching, and "the greater the risk."  I don't think making sure Dany wasn't hungry was a "great risk."

I need to rewatch the scene, but why did he take off his ring before the guards came? Did he put the ring into the same pot with the burning note? Could it have been one of those poison smuggling rings?

Another conspiracy theory is that Varys poisoned her to be crazy and burn everyone so that she wouldn't get the throne (long)

That would be a self fulfilling prophecy. He poisoned her to be crazy and burn everything so she wouldn't get the throne, in an effort to prevent her from burning everything?

I don't think Varys poisoned her to go crazy because she did not eat anything.

 

I still think in the end John will go North (aka Frodo) as Tormund foreshadowed and be reunited with Ghost.  Arya will go west (Off the maps) as she foreshadowed when she was with head of the acting troupe.  What happens in between is anybody's guess.

  1. Dany tries to burn Tyrion via Drogon and he either dies or is unburnt because he is a Targaryen.
  2. John plunges his sword into either Dany or Drogon.
  3. Arya kills Dany (Green eyes)
  4. Sansa becomes Queen as foretold by Maggie the Frog (Cersei will be replaced by a younger more beautiful queen) and marries Gendry or Tyrion (Is she still actually married to him?
  5. Dany reveals she is pregnant (Foreshadowed by John in the Dragon Pit and by Jorah to John when they were going North "Give LongClaw to your children") and they go North as banishment.
  6. They give Bron King's Landing as his reward.
  7. Does Yara make an appearance or is she done?
  8. Does Dany try to kill Sansa and Brienne dies protecting her?
  9. Is Bron's role done? Does he live out his days in front of the Weirwood tree in Winterfell?
  10. Since John is dead and was revived, what does that really mean if Dany is pregnant.  What kind of child would that be?
  11. I am not sure why Nymeria was ever brought back in S7 if she had no further role except to reiterate that Arya won't settle down (That is not you). 
  12. What happened to the Baby White Walkers?  Did they explode when the Night King exploded. 
  13. What were those Night King and White Walker Symbols and what did they stand for?  Was that ever explained? 
  14. What happened to Edmure Tulley and his wife/kid and the Tully Army? 

    I could go on, but there are lots of loose ends that I doubt get closed.

It's possible, but I interpreted it as the show making a gesture that he knew he was about to die, and was just not wanting to "waste" his nice possessions so to speak.  It very well could have had the poison like Sansa's necklace did, though.

I've honestly got no idea how things will play out at this point.

Dany has absolutely zero friends left in Westeros besides Grey Worm and Drogon because she went full Mad Queen. Hard to keep loyal subjects when you torch everything. Perhaps she is just happy knowing she absolutely torched the 7 kingdoms and decides to run back to Mereen to be with the only person left who loves her (Daario). Leave the ash pile behind her and let the (very) few houses argue over the scraps.  I honestly see her going back to Dragonstone at a minimum.

Jon Snow has always been loyal to a fault (like Ned Stark), and I do not see him breaking rank to kill Dany. He may no longer recognize her as the queen, but he won't do anything drastic.

Arya is a coin flip. She either says FTS and rides into the sunset or she goes after Dany.

 

Some characters with unknown endings: 

Jaqen H'ghar - does he come in to shut down Arya, help her, or even show up again at all?

Edmure Tully - Was last seen being used to reclaim Riverrun for the Lannisters and supposedly being shipped back to prison in the Twins

Ellaria Sand - Last seen in the dungeons of the Red Keep. Cersi poisoned her daughter, but what happened to her? Assumed killed in the cells?

Yara Greyjoy - Last seen sailing back to the Iron Islands. Does she really have anything left to do?

Brienne & Podrick - Do they stay in Winterfell as Sansa's guard? probably

Gendry - Does he go to Storm's End and be content? Does he find Arya and convince the post-nuclear version of her to settle down?

Bronn - Only one Lannister left to pay him, don't really see him with any choice but to either ride into the sunset or rage kill Tyrion.

Sam & Guilly - Staying in Winterfell/north? Don't really see anything for for them.

Tormund - Same as Sam. Ride off to the north and never be seen again. Brings Ghost with him.

Daario Nahharis was last left in charge in Mereen. Does he come back at all?

Davos Seaworth - Follow Jon (probably) or stay with Dany? Or simply disappear back to Essos/Braavos to live out his retirement years...

Robin Arryn - Left behind in the Eyrie. Do we really care?

And we have no idea what the Iron Bank will do now that the Lannister loan to buy the Golden Company won't get paid...

Hey.  Yeah.  That swirly fan thing...Maybe just that everything extended from the middle and that was the Night King.  Just a WAG.

At least Peter Jackson closed out Tolkien's series without loose ends(and the dead guys were the good guys and the dragon was always a bad guy).  Since Doug and Mr. Peet are directing the finale,  hopefully it will go out on a high note.  They say the series ending will be bittersweet, but to date it has been pretty bitter.

One of the writers answered that during an interview:

"As we saw with Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven, the spiral pattern was sacred to the Children of the Forest, who created the Night King by sacrificing a captured man in a spiral 'henge of stones'.

"The Night King then adopted the symbol as a sort of blasphemy, like Satan with the upside-down cross."

Slightly OT, but if you have the chance I'd hihgly recommend visiting Dubrovnik. It's where they film most of the King's Landing scene's. Beautiful place, lots to do. The old city isn't that big though, so after visiting you can't help but notice where they filmed so many of the city shots. I swear they torched, blew up, invaded the same square and alleyways about five different ways on last week's episode.

Do they have naked women walking the streets taking the walk of shame?  Kidding aside, I think it would be great place to visit along with locale of the Dornish Capital, which I believe is in Spain.

I certainly plan on visiting, my grandfather was born around there.

Oh, the other burning question - what did Tyrion have Davos do?

What if Tyrion was arranging for Davos to smuggle him away from KL after the battle? Tyrion would have to know that helping his brother escape would results in his execution by dragon fire. He could get smuggled away post battle, and Danny would just assume that he was another MIA causality of the battle?

GOT is why i got HBO. No reason to keep it now. I like Westworld but it’s another show with a year and a half between seasons.

Guess Bran was being honest when he said he didn’t want to be Lord of Winterfell...

 

So was Jon ditching the wall and becoming the king beyond the wall? Or is here really no more wall and that was just a way to keep him alive?

 

I’m content with the ending - kind of reminded me of the Cheers finale for some reason...

About the only part of the episode I truly hated was the pointless and inexplicable "symbolic" throne melting.  I mean, "you killed my mom and I'm so angry about it I'm going to blow fire in that general direction until I see a chair melt" was the best they could come up with?

And while Dany's death was a bit anticlimactic, it was the only way that really made sense.  She's followed by armed guards literally everywhere else she goes.  While I wouldn't have put it past the writers, I don't think we realistically could have expected another "surprise mothafucka!" from Arya flying out of nowhere, or her and Jon trying to duke it out in some epic battle.  It was befitting - the throne was, quite literally, at the tip of her fingers and taken away from her, while all of her supporters got equally shitty outcomes.  Granted, Tyrion's job was probably more wanted than not, but Jon had to go skulk off somewhere north, Grey Worm will forever be a lifeless, miserable douche, and the rest of them are all dead.

Bran being king became an "it was so obvious I'm surprised I didn't think it would happen" type outcome, but also made the most sense.  

It definitely wasn't the best/most exciting episode, but I think it was far from the disaster that everyone is claiming it to be.  I honestly really like probably the first 20-ish minutes of the show, with the really dark tone it set.
