Series went downhill for me when Joffre died.

Dang I miss Joffre & Tywin, they should have kept him in the show somehow.

Miss you Joff.


I'm not tired!

Lannisters definitely have the best cast.

It's too bad we ended up with Khaleesi and Jon. I don't feel like either are particularly interesting characters.
 
We need an extra rule:

I'm genuinely hoping for an ending where everyone or almost everyone dies and the zombies just take over the world or something

Would love the ending and would love the reactions to it even more
Whatever the ending is, I can't imagine it will be a happy one or one that most of the main characters live through.

I remember when this one


started showing up all over the place right after the episode aired.
Man, Stannis was done dirty by this show. Such a calculating, patient man becomes Leeroy Jenkins.
I mean, he kind of had to. A lot of his troops left people they were running out of supplies, and the blizzard was really fucking them up and the only way for the blizzard to end, was for him to sacrifice his daughter. This, however, made more troops leave since who the hell wants to fight for the guy who burns his daughter alive to perform dark magic?

Then the day of the battle happens, he killed his daughter and the woman who told him to do that just fled, your wife committed suicide and even more of your men escaped, I honestly think he didn't think he was going to win and didn't care.

There's this moment

where he just looks defeated even before the battle even started.
 
So I just rewatched The Battle of the Bastards

Gotta say, for as much flak as this show gets (deservedly so sometimes) for not being able to reach the heights of "prestige television", in terms of nuance or soulful artistic value

You'll never be able to tell me that's not one of the best hours of dramatic television to ever air
 
Has anyone watched via amazon prime's HBO sub? I was using AppleTV last year but it broke, and saw I could add HBO to prime for $15/mon, which is not bad even if I don't have time to watch anything besides GOT.

I'm confused as to how this is an extra rule, as opposed to something we already ban people for as part of ToS violation.
 
Ignoring the fact that we still don't know his parent's marriage status to each other, and the fact that joining the Night's Watch disavows one from all titles, they seem to want to have things both ways.
He died. Night's Watch rules only work until death. It says so in their vow. He came back, so all their rules don't apply anymore. He carried out his duties as a Watchman to their term. He's a regular nobleman now. Albeit one with a special hidden parentage.

I've seen people post spoiler gifs/pics since season one. It happens every season. I know it's a ToS violation, but some people need to be reminded. Better to remind people before hand than afterwards when the damage is done.
It was just a suggestion.
 
I just want Jon and bran to come out okay. I want one of them to sit on the iron throne, and the other either becomes warden of the north or even
King in the north

Bran is one of the characters I'm most interested to find out where he ends up when all of this is said and done.

The most interesting thing would be for his time loop to be fully closed and to become the mythical Bran who built the Wall. Which is probably a bit of a creative stretch for D&D and would have already been foreshadowed if it was going to happen.

Going back thru season 5 and 6 before it begins next week, aside from messing up Dorne spectacularly, it's better than I remember. Hardhome episode is tonight, can't wait.

I had to skip that Sansa scene though. Oddly enough it didn't bother me all that much the first time around but I had no stomach for it this time.


BTW I am in Ireland and just got a Sky Q box, how long after Sunday does GoT air on Sky Atlantic and are there adds?
 
EW said:
Tyrion and Cersei Lannister haven’t seen each other for a while, and any reunion between the two is likely to be fraught. After all, last we checked, Cersei had put a hit out on Tyrion for the murder of their father and her son (the latter of which he wasn’t guilty of, but try telling her that), and Jaime had sworn to kill Tyrion if he ever saw him again. “He’s returning home, and returning home a new person,” actor Peter Dinklage told Entertainment Weekly. “He has Dany and the dragons on his side but he is a very different person than when he left this place. And he’s returning to a brother he loves and a sister he…dot dot dot.” (Dinklage literally says “dot dot dot” here.) “He’s bracing himself.”
More of the interview at the link below. I think of all the people who will end up meeting this season. This is my most anticipated meeting. I really just want them to have a chance to talk and hash stuff out. It's always a pleasure when the two of them are on screen together. And it's been a long time coming.

Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage discuss Cersei and Tyrion’s season 7 journeys
 
Hearing that the Night's King and his army will go to the wall and the door previously opened by the giant will be opened once more. Once it is opened Zombie Hodor will make an appearance and hold the door so the White Walker army can attack Westeros.


Can't wait for Sunday.

I'm not saying he is still beholden to the oaths of the Night's watch. But as of the moment he made them, he lost his place in line. Death gets him out of the oaths, but it doesn't give him his spot back. He goes to the back of the line.

Meaning that where he was Rhaegar's heir (let's pretend he wasn't a bastard) until the Night's oath, Dany takes the spot because of it. Death gave him his titles back, but not the original ranking due to being skipped over. So he's still an heir, but now to Dany.

I used HBO Now on my Amazon Fire TV last year to watch GoT and everything worked fine.
 
Current Bran = Bran The Builder never made any sense to me. I don't see the point of it. Hold the Door was alright, but I really hope they're through with time travelling shenanigans.

Not gonna lie, in a way I'm looking forward to a shorter season. I'm growing tired of weekly shows.
I'm only okay with it because the episodes are longer and I hope his means each one has a bigger budget.

Only 6 for the final season feels real shitty, though.

What's the chances of the white walkers not being defeated, and everyone flees to Essos? I honestly don't know how you can go from, "the long night lasted for generations" to "yeah we can wrap this up in 6 episodes." Maybe Khaleesi spending all that time freeing the slave cities is going to payoff in ways we didn't expect.
