    But did Bran or Bloodraven warg into the Mad King like Bran did Hodor? BURN THEM ALL, BURN THEM ALL, BURN THEM ALL ????????

    Is Bran Bloodraven? Did Bloodraven engineer this whole timeline 100 years ago like the Bene Geserit to bring paganism back to Westeros but was unsure of what he unleashed?

    No, it took both Bran and Sam. Sam’s knowledge was useless without Bran’s information. Bran is the only one alive that knew that Jon was the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Only Sam new about the annulment and subsequent marriage that meant Jon Snow was not a Sand.

    Until he is proven guilty of some crime Trump is indeed innocent.

    He is factually not guilty of collusion. Doesn't mean he's an innocent man. Let's let this string go.

    I've personally never assumed he was guilty of collusion (obstruction... yeah, fraud... obviously, 'innocent'... "LOL") I know we're not supposed to talk politics but Winders started it and GoT is over in 4 days anyway...

    I mean, don't wanna argue over this too long as I really DGAF, but Sam figured out Jon is not a Stark. Between that and him riding dragons and shit, someone easily would've made the link without Bran.

    Let me reiterate: Bran is useless.

    Nope.

    Your memory is faulty. Bran is the one that saw that Ned’s bastard Jon was really Leanna Stark’s child. Bran assumed the pregnancy was the result of a rape and thought Jon was a Sand, not a Snow. Bran recounted this information to Sam asking him to tell Jon who is real parents are.

    That is when Sam said Jon was not a bastard. Sam told Bran that he read an entry in the High Septom’s private diary that documented the annulment of Rhaegar Targaryen‘s first marriage and his marriage to Leanna Stark. Bran even went on his vision thingy and verified the marriage and went back to the birth to hear Lyanna whisper the name “Aegon Targaryen“ to Ned.

    Facts are facts and Bran is not totally useless...just mostly.

    I wonder if Bronn will get sorted out in the last episode or if his storyline will just get abandoned. With Jaime and Cersei both dead and limited screen time left, and everything else that's going on, it's hard to see the show having time to render any kind of resolution to his story. That's probably true of a lot of storylines actually, but Bronn's is the one that comes to mind.

    I can imagine Bronn just kicking back in Highgarden now being super rich. If Tyrion isn't in a ton of trouble for freeing Jaime. He literally didn't have to do anything minus ride to Winterfell and not kill Tyrion and Jaime. This season shrunk the world, they were only at Winterfell and King's Landing.

    We never caught sight of Daenerys once she'd started her rampage, right?
    THEORY: In the final episode's "Last week on..." we get to see what happened after this:

    [​IMG]

    Cut to second camera: Daenerys bonks her head on a parapet and falls out of the sky unconscious! Drogon flies off and then does the dragon equivalent of breaking into the shoe cupboard and chewing the shit out of everything.

    First shot of the series finale is Drogon:

    Based on the trailer for the finale, Daenerys has gone bat shit crazy. The look in her eyes is scary. If my girl came home with that look in her eyes, I’d pack a bag and go to a hotel and not tell her which one.

    One plot line I have thought of is some people (Arya, the imp, missing digits dude) try to take Daenerys out and they die trying. Then Jon takes on Grey Worm, defeats him , then goes after Daenerys. Daenerys thinks Drogon will kill Jon. But, Drogon can tell who Jon is and let’s it play out. She refuses to bend a knee and Jon is forced to kill her. Aegon rules in Westeros and leaves the North independent under Sansa’s rule.

    This is great fun. I will miss our get togethers musing about GOT. But, in two years or less the show will be becoming a faint memory. I wonder what we will be B.S. ing about then? It won’t be the prequel. Perhaps it will be how fast they cancelled Westworld. o_O

    Iron bank - none of this stuff makes any sense:

    1) Lannisters own like $129 billion (this includes interest) to the Iron Bank at the start of the show.
    2) Iron Bank gets pissy at Lannisters. Decides to loan Stannis $77 billion to fund an invasion force.
    3) Lannisters sack the lands of Dont'a HIghtower or whatever and steal all their gold to pay back the $129B.
    4) Iron Bank now happy and tells Cersei: anytime you need another loan, just call us.
    5) Cersei hires Golden Shower Company mercs for $108 billion (these guys are not cheap).
    6) Cersei is dead. Iron Bank writes off $108.
