Shouldn’t Brienne be queensguard to Sansa and not kingsguard to Bran?

If you did that then you couldn't have her update Jamie's entry in the book. How else could he get a sudo happy ending if she didn't do that for him?

What is the small council even the council of at this point? King's Landing has been completely demolished with 99% of the people with it. If they and Bran are going to rule the six kingdoms, methinks they need a new locale.

Fully agree. Sounds really good.
oh yeah.
love the idea of the night king winning Winterfell and overrunning Dany/Jon in Ep3, forcing them to retreat to Kings Landing.

and Night king vs Jon round 1: Jon sets up NK to disarm Longclaw which enables Jon to draw his dragonglass dagger to stab him. But no effect!
Jon retrieves LongClaw and see's NK zombie hoard approaching and retreats.

Ep4 is the showdown between depleted Dany and fresh Cercei w/Golden Company.

and love the idea of a showdown between the night king and his remaining Lords vs all the Valerian steel holders in the Dragon pit in ep5. :eek:
(yeah, this assumes Sir FriendZone didn't die in ep3)

Also, today is Sun.
Cant wait to see the bonus epilogue episode tonite!!!

Yea the cast members don't look too pleased upon hearing their fate. Must of been a bitch to work there pissed off until it was all done. Didn't look like anyone was happy.

WTF bother with the Waif and Jaqen as decoys? Nobody in their right mind would have guessed the ending. It's too bad that they didn't have the cast and crew on camera and mike-ed up for their first reactions to seeing the real ending. Even the kid who played Bran would have said "Bran? Are you shitting me? Re-write this crap."

i guess u don't understand what a red herring is?

Well, you did misuse the term, so it's understandable that you confused her. You should have said "decoy."

A Red Herring is a plot device--so her character would have actually had to have been in the show to be a Red Herring.

Just bringing the actor on the set for no real story purpose would be using her as a decoy.

Wow!! What an impressive display of hubris to scold someone for being 100% right on a subject where you yourself are 100% wrong. Well done!!

A red herring is ANY ruse meant to deceive an observer. While it is often used as a literary plot device it is by no means solely a plot device. Having the Waif and Jaqen on set is every bit as much a red herring as it would be having them in the show.

He clearly meant the logical fallacy.

I don't know the names of the dragons but the one that got shot and crashed into the water I was wondering if it "lived" in some alternate timeline. They didn't spend much time on it just splash and, next. Also I was wondering in the GOT universe where do/did they come from? Could there be some on another content not discovered.. You just can't go wrong with dragons.
