I hope the Varys / Melisandre / Red Priestess story line isn't done poorly.





It's one of the side plots I'm looking forward to.

I hadn't considered this before, and it just makes so much sense. Spread the word.

Man that was like the first thing I thought, but I actually think it a little less now.

When she first revealed herself as prego to Jaime I thought she was lying to manipulate him. The way they had her and tyrion interact made me think her pregnancy might be legit.

Pretty much my feeling. With all the dialogue about lying in that last episode though, it kind of drive home a point about believing anything from any source who's proved to be untrustworthy. Like I have very little to believe anything from Cersei that I can't conform from.another source. But the child may be legit.

We already had one Bran flashback to how the Night King was created. What more do we need? An entire backstory? The raising of the wall by Bran the Builder?

not sure how many of you read the spoilers for each of season 7's episodes but one website in particular stated:

Spoiler: show
cersei had a miscarriage and it was to be her final scene of season 7


you can read more here.

also of note is a scene that wasn't aired detailing a conversation varys had with a small child:

Spoiler: show
[Varys] "has one scene with one of the little girls. He asks her about Qyburn, and she says he gives them sweets and looks after them. "he made xxxxx's father disappear" (I'm ever wary of leak-traps). Varys says that is good and: "Do you know what's better than having a good friend? Two good friends" ."

I don't check this thread a lot, but you've got some amazingly bad takes. It's CGI. You think they coincidentally CGI'd a direwolf sigil? Like, spent money and hours painstakingly rendering the animation and it just happened? I noticed this when it aired and I'm not even an easter egg hunter when I'm watching. I let the reddit nerds do that, but this was obvious.
TBS Playoffs Insider wrote:Ok, I've thought way too much about this, and here's my prediction for the end of the series.

To get Cersei on board, Tyrion, who has talked a lot about the line of succession, promised her that her child would be king/queen after whoever emerges from the war victorious, since Dany is barren.

But we know that Cersei will only have three kids, right? Well you can fudge your way around that if she dies in childbirth.

So one of two things happen. Jon and Dany win the war, the Lord of Light stops keeping Jon alive and Dany dies in the battle. Cersei dies in childbirth leaving Tyrion to raise her child up as King or Queen of the ashes/what have you.

Or, and I think this is more likely;

Jon and Dany win the war and the Lord of Light lets Jon die. Dany dies giving birth, as does Cersei. Tyrion, the only remaining bridge between the two sides (Jaime is the 1000th commander of the Night's Watch at this point) helps raise the kids (one is a boy and one is a girl) with the idea that they will marry and rule Westeros.

You're both overthinking this and giving the show runners way too much credit. They aren't spinning webs anymore, they're landing the plane. I think you can just assume the simplest reasons/scenario and that is not this. What this would be, is an insanely dumb and hated ending to a very popular television show, and they aren't going to do that. Cersei is not having a fourth child. Only 3. Shout out to Maggy the Frog. Everything Maggy said would happen, has. And with the subtle as a sledgehammer symbolism of the Jaime/Cersei split in the map room (neck, fingers, hand, etc) we can assume the Valonquar will happen as well. I also don't think there's much of a chance that Jon or Dany dies. Definitely not both. It's like you want this story to be more subversive of fantasy than it actually is.

It would probably make the kid Lightbringer, drawn from the fire (Dany.)

Like stannis said, it could be any of them. Hard to argue with Jon, though. Rhaegar tried and failed to forge lightbringer (his heir) twice, plunged his sword (dong) into his love's heart (vagina) and finally forged lightbringer (Jon).

Why?

They don't have time. Hence many of this season's problems. That said, it would be in line with the show version of Bran straight up half-assing his vision quests. I guess he just watched his deceased teen dad at his aunt's dying bedside, figured it was Jon, and then immediately bounced? "Ned, his name is," welp I've seen enough! No need to hear the end of that sentence. It's Jon. My aunt was raped and had the Crown Prince's bastard. Better get on back to the present so I can stare blankly beyond other people's shoulders. What's that Sam? Oh, word? I guess I'll go back and check out the end of that sentence and possibly do a little research on this very important thing that I already said I wanted to tell my brother, who was/is very important to me. Probably wouldn't be the worst thing if I shaded in a few details beyond "Hey bro, you're my bro but we're not, like, actually brothers."

I can't tell if the show runners just suck without George or if they're actually capable of telling the story right but are instead rushing too fast to finish. Not great either way.

lmao im gonna guess you didnt get the memo about the name change

anyway "there's not enough time!" is a silly thing to say considering they have 6 episodes that will total like 8 hours of show, and you have no idea how many story beats they want to set up. They could spend 45 minutes explaining some background on the WW and it would be half an episode. You could literally have the WW destroying Winterfell in episode 1 and a battle between dragons in episode 2.

The direwolf thing is so dumb (but not so dumb I couldn't see it being their intention.)

But the image everyone is passing around of 'OMG ITS THE STARK BANNER" is a cropped image of the full thing that looks like ... a horsefeathers fish

Look, it's the Stark sigil, ok? Doesn't mean anything since it's basically assumed that the Night's King is a Stark.
