  1. Man, how crazy is this? And guess who he said it to...Theon!
  2. The wait is killing me. I've been reading theories during all my free time since the episode ended, lol. I've barely even thought about the draft in anticipation for this episode.
  3. What do you guys think about the theory that the little girl who reminded Davos of Shireen is actually Melisandre with a glamour?
  4. This article on Dwayne Haskins and his father is rather bizarre. https://www.nj.com/giants/2019/04/heres-the-strange-conversation-i-had-with-dawyne-haskins-father-before-he-hung-up-on-me.html
  5. Thanks. Thought I had copied the original tweet. Added it.
  6. Lol. That was one of the best scenes of the entire series, imo.
  7. I agree with @Starkiller that we aren't going to get much more regarding the NK's motivations/culture/etc. They're saving it for the prequel HBO is doing: A logline from the network teases the plot without divulging any specifics: "Only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend — it's not the story we think we know." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/game-thrones-all-details-prequel-series-far-1163290
  8. Sadly, those Dothraki numbers are going to get shredded this week. Jaime even said that Cersei would have enough to swoop in and take out any survivors from the Winterfell battle. Unless the NK goes to King's Landing, this is probably what they're setting up for.
  9. It is fascinating to me that we’ve seen almost nothing in the original trailer of what happens after episode 3. Tells me the people/locations/attire would give too much away.
  10. They have to be super cautious with the dragons. That shot of the walkers at the end shows almost every single one of them holding an ice spear like the one that brought down Viserion.
  11. I think we have to let it play out first. I think it would be quite a struggle to put the politics on the backburner for an entire season. Pretty sure that's been GRRM's plan from the beginning though...to have many of the characters brought back together at the end for a major battle. Of course his plans have evolved and changed along the way, but in his original query letter for ASOIAF, he wrote "The final battle will also draw together characters and plot threads left from the first two books and resolve all in one huge climax." Also, LOL at his original plan being for 3 books.
  12. Two episodes in and all of these characters are still in play. Don't think that will be the case after next week.
  13. Bran was attacked by what were essentially skeletons when they were trying to reach the Three-Eyed Raven. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InnPxjfEPyk
  14. There are 3 more episodes after the battle though and we've seen next to nothing from those episodes. It's definitely not "the final battle." Man, I hate to hear you guys didn't enjoy it. I thought the emotional moments were fantastic considering the journey we've been on with these characters for 8 years now (or 20+ with the books!). Hopefully once the season is complete, you'll be able to look back on this episode and enjoy it more. I do think it would've helped if last week wasn't so "meh." The emotional impact from this episode is what we should've had from episode 1, imo. Would've been great if they could've combined the first two episodes and gave us more of the post-Winterfell battle.
  15. Wait...why isn't anyone jumping on the Peter King quote regarding QB? It sounds like a "smart GM" told him the Titans would (should?) take Drew Lock if he's there at #19. Or am I misreading that?
  16. Death predictions for next week? I think we lose... - Theon - Jorah - Grey Worm - Beric - Edd - Davos - Jaime (dies in Brienne's arms)
  17. Man, I really enjoyed this episode. Felt like an old-school Thrones episode with everything relying on characters and the dialogue more than the action. Had some really fantastic character moments. Pretty clear we're seeing many of them together for the last time. Death toll is gonna be outrageous next week. How many people are going to die in the crypts? They beat us over the head multiple times talking about the crypts being the safest place at Winterfell. Alarm bells immediately went off for me regarding that. The Night King must have a way of reviving the dead from afar. In the preview for next week, Dany says "the dead are already here." I'm sure that's her bringing word of wights in the crypts. We finally learned that the Night King is indeed after Bran and wants to bring about "an endless night." I suppose as long as Bran lives, the memories and stories of old can be passed down. But if he's gone, then they'll all be forgotten. I need to re-watch. I think there's a lot more to take from the battle preparations scene. As for predictions, I had wondered a few weeks ago if they'd deal with the Night King problems early in the season and use the latter half for resolving the politics. At this point, that's what I'm leaning toward. I think they win the battle next week...but suffer numerous casualties. There were just so many bread crumbs this week about what will happen after. Sansa asking Dany about the north. Jon revealing his parentage to Dany. Jorah telling Dany not to dismiss Tyrion. In Jaime's trial, they (Jaime or Tyrion?) mentioned Cersei striking with her new army with them being weak after the battle with the dead. I may change my mind next week, but right now, I think that's exactly what's going to happen It was a cool theory, but I definitely think the Night King is there at Winterfell now that we know he wants Bran. Then again...Bran could be wrong or giving us false info. Maybe he has another goal he's not revealing. Edit: The more I think about it, the more I'm second guessing this now. The plan is almost certainly going to fail. But how? They're whole plan is centered around getting the Night King. What better way to thwart that plan than to just not show up at all?
  18. Not to mention the complete absurdity of the wight mission in the first place.
  19. Exactly. Why now and what are they after? My hunch is the answer to that question is the final big twist of the series. D&D did an interview after the Hodor episode and said there were 3 moments during their meetings with GRRM that completely shocked them. One was Shireen's death, two was Hodor's origin, and the third is something revealed near the end of the whole series. Wait, didn't you just get caught up recently and say how much you were enjoying it?
  20. Sounds like Sweat may legitimately be dropping with the heart concerns. Would be really interesting if he was there at 19.
