    I have missed that there are spells keeping the night king from crossing south. Anyone have a link that explains them?

    The theory is there was a curse put on the wall, but "Winter is Coming" means the Night King and White Walkers grow stronger the colder it gets.

    I also think Bran will somehow allow them to pass through, why else is he at the wall? Remember "The Children" created the first White Walker, so it makes sense that Bran is now connected to that magic somehow.......and will either willingly or by mistake allow the White Walkers to cross over.

  • They were able to find the tree cave and break the magic there after Bran was marked by the Night King during his vision. Some think maybe that same mark will now allow the White Walkers to get past the wall.

    It's also possible the resurrected Viserion will play a role.

    Or maybe they'll just go around it via the sea east of Eastwatch if the water freezes hard enough.

    Winter is coming does mean something, it's the words the Starks use to indicate Winter Brings death, or when wronged you can say to your adversary Winter is Coming as a indication the Starks are coming as Robb and Arya has used. The First war of the Night when the Night King was defeated had the First Men and Children in an alliance, Bran the Builder with the Children built the wall and they put spells much like the one in the cave on it to prevent the Dead from crossing. He also Built the Crypts of Winterfell, we have yet to know what hat really means in association with a There must always be a Stark in Winterfell. He also Built Storms end, The keep that the Baratheons occupy that has not been breached ever. There are others but his proficiency in building and seemingly having magic associated with his structures is revered in the history of Westeros.

    As far as growing Stronger, the Warlocks, Melisandra and others ability to perform spells jumped dramatically with the birth of Danys Dragons.

    Also as far as the Night King, there is a big argument in favor of him being a Stark and former Commander of the Nights Watch. The ability to basically Warg undead, Greenseeing, being two factors.

    Perhaps I'm not remembering correctly, but wasn't there a white walker south of the wall in the very first episode?

    Ha! I was reading the refinery link and should have gone on to the next paragraph.

    "In the podcast's latest episode, "Eastwatch— SpoiLore Editon" — hosts Jim and A.Ron chat about how the wights could cross the wall. Despite the fact that the White Walkers can't go south of the wall. Benjen told Bran and Meera last season it's because ancient spells were carved into its foundation so the dead can't pass.
    As the podcasters point out though we've already seen wights beyond the wall in Season 1. Jon Snow kills it with Jeor Mormont's torch after it comes back to life in Castle Black. It got there because someone dragged it through the gate believing it was dead only to have it come back to life. The White Walkers might not be able to cross the wall on their own volition, but they can cross the wall with someone's help. That means if someone allows them in they could essentially get past the wall."

  • If that dead guy (was it a nights watch member?) was resurrected as a wight from the south side of the wall, then one of the white walkers was able to do it from far away, north of the wall, right? So they can warg. Like the 3 eyed raven & Bran.

    Maybe they'll just setup base at the wall, and control their wight army from there if they cant cross. Or they have a way to bring down the wall. That would be crazy to see.

    In the episode where Benjen rescues Bran, Bran asks him to go with them to Winterfell. Benjen explains that the wall isn't only a physical barrier but also has spell inscribed in the foundation that keep the dead from crossing to the other side, so he is stuck in the north.

    I just watched the first six episodes today, and I'm downloading the seventh...can't wait to see what happens. :)

  • This season was weak. Really weak. Way too much going on all at once and too rushed compared to the rest. Before, we had epic battles set up over time. This season was like a game of speed chess, where each episode banged the clock timer for the next episode to rip through its moves.

    Glad to see Littlefinger get his, but was a little disappointed it wasn't a little more drawn out and painful. Probably my most hated character of any of them, including Ramsey Snow/Bolton and Joffrey Baratheon/Lanister. A little anti-climactic, to tell the truth.

    And I hated to see that last scene with Jon and Dani play out. I mean, don't get me wrong--the skin was nice to see and all, but that whole incest thing has been overdone. I'd have far rather seen the dynamic of "whose next in line for the Iron Throne" game play out instead. Of course, they can still do that next season, which I'm sure they will, right after they realize they're related.

  • Yes this season felt very rushed. To the point where I half expected them to go straight from the dragon pit to a battle against the white walkers in the last half hour of the episode.

    Its good that they decided to wrap up the show instead of dragging it out for 10 seasons, but they definitely could have done 10 episode seasons these last 2 without dragging things out.

    I think the writing has been weak, but the producers more than made up for it with some of the best action set pieces of the entire series.

    But yes, the convenient plot devices and ham fisted cheesy dialogue of this season was not up to par of the stellar writing of previous seasons.

    It is obvious that, for as big of a hit as this show is, HBO did not choose to increase the budget to really give the show the consistency that it has had in the past. More special effects needed ? Less episodes overall. Sucks. Hopefully they cheated this season's budget to pay for the last.

    Hard for me to criticize a show that's spending 10M + per episode.

    But that's not my criticism. More money isn't going to help things like writing, plot and character arcs. Which were my complaints this year.

    When your barreling towards the final season, it's going to feel rushed. So I have no qualms about that aspect of season 7. But some VERY pedestrian convenient plot device writing to move the story along.

    Even last night? Why the hell would Cersei let Jamie leave King's Landing to go spill the beans on her plan to double cross everyone? She'd kill him, or at the least imprison him. Makes no sense to just say "yeah whatever dude, see ya."

  • I think the timing of winter sort of dictates that the pace will pick up. You're literally running out of time at this point.

    The Cersei/Jamie scene was interesting, yet I don't put it past Cersei to hav3 something else brewing even in that exchange.

  • I enjoyed this season. Some of the action sequences were tremendous, visually as good as ever, but agree it felt rushed. Ontop of it, no major character deaths kinda took away from what the show once was. It felt like the plot armor was way too strong to get all the fan favorites into the final season. I still definitely enjoyed seeing all the interactions in the finale.

    Miguel Sapochnik not directing an episode this season was tough but he wants to come back for the final season. BoB, Hardhome, and Winds of Winter are the best episodes the show has produced IMO, all directed by him.

    I think the shortened episodes also had to do with increased actor salaries and although it was not publicly said, getting the core to stay on (my opinion). Not many shows this big keep on the same original core group for 8 seasons. Not to say they didn't actually decide on ~13 episodes of story left, but these are long filming schedules and I know most of them are all getting big Hollywood offers, however bad the movies may be.

  • Without Georges source material as a road map some of the plot set ups have been pretty obvious, yes it also feels rushed, the action sequences are still the best on television though. I really enjoyed the drama aspect of last nights episode also, something that has been missing a large part of the season. There have been some plot holes that I question though. Right out of the gate we have Bronn seeing to the defenses, a soldier comes up and says they have 500 barrels of pitch, Bronn says get 500 more. This is where I have a issue, they just got their asses handed to them on the road from Highgarden by a Dragon, having 1000 Barrels of oil or pitch on the wall where all your troops are deployed and two flying flamethrowers attacking you does not seem like a great maneuver.

  • As they head to the climax of the story it's bound to become a bit predictable and rushed. The possibilities are narrowing as you've been setting things in motion for 7 years. They have to unite in some form, whether Cersi has her fingers crossed behind her back or not, they will fight the Night King and the army of the dead and they will win. Can their be any other outcome?

    Once the Night King is settled they can sort out who is on the Iron Throne. For me that is where there is still room for surprise. That said I'm enjoying all of it very much.

    I don't think it's quite correct to think of this as a shortened season, rather it's a 15 episode final season stretched over two years.

  • This is going to go down as a final that rivals the last episode of M.A.S.H. except on a world wide level.


    And yes, trailer is nothing but great, 39 days to go and I hope you guys are going to try and stream the first episode, the servers are going to crash.

    Some of the people close to GOT have already said that there's so many spoilers in every episode that they can't show hardly anything in these trailers, that's why this one and the teaser trailers have been short and totally devoid of substance.

    According to Alt Shift X's live breakdown of the trailer yesterday, the Battle of Winterfell is going to be episode 3. It's likely we didn't see much beyond that episode in this trailer.

    I also read an article yesterday saying that the Battle of Winterfell will be the longest battle scene ever filmed, among other little nuggets of info. The article said it will take up the entire episode, so it sounds like ep. 3 is shaping up to be quite a ride for almost 80 minutes. I'm now taking bets on who will live and who will not.

    As much as everyone is saying "Hey it's GOT, it can't end happily ever after!!"............I do think the good guys prevail and defeat the White Walkers, with probably Jon and Dany ruling the Seven Kingdoms.

    But of course AFTER copious amounts of death and destruction, with many main characters dying. Here are my odds for who's ripe for death.

    100% chance of death
    The Night King
    Viserion, new Ice Dragon

    80% chance of death
    - Jamie
    - Cersei
    - Euron Greyjoy
    - Qyburn
    - Jorah
    - Melisandre (again)

    50% chance of death
    Beric (again.............again)
    Davos
    Varys
    Grey Worm and Missandei (I think one of them has to die)
    The Hound
    Bronn
    Yara Greyjoy

    25% chance of death
    Theon
    Tyrion
    Sansa (I just think her life has been too tragic, she may be killed off)
    Brienne or Tormund (would make for great drama for ONE of them to die)
    Gendry
    Meera
    Ellaria

    0% chance of death
    Jon
    Dany
    Arya
    Bran
    Sam and Gilly


    I think I got everyone, let me know if I didn't and what you think of my odds.

  • I can dig that list. Can only think of Littlefinger being left out. We should probably define death since some characters die and come back, others "die" but aren't dead, etc.

    Does a Stark turning into a zombie like Benjen/Coldhands mean they died? If Bran or Jon or Arya becomes The Night King (or equivalent) is that dying? Is The Mountain already dead?

    Anyway, here's my list using your formatting:

    100% chance of death
    - The Night King (defeated)
    - Viserion (killed by the other dragons or killed by being warged into)
    - Beric (Thoros died so I don't think he will be revived)
    - Cersei (slain by Jaime just like the Mad King in order to save King's Landing from wildfire)
    - The Mountain (killed by The Hound)
    - Ellaria Martell (pssssh get outta here Sand Snake)
    - Grey Worm (sacrificing himself for Missandei, most likely)
    - Melisandre (laaaady in reeeeeeeed)
    - Yara Greyjoy (I don't see any of the Greyjoys surviving TBH)
    - Euron Greyjoy

    80% chance of death
    - Jorah (dies a hero, don't see him surviving unless Daeny survives and he becomes Lord Commander of the Queensguard)
    - The Hound (dies from mortal wounds killing The Mountain, Arya actually finishes him off to save him from suffering)
    - Theon (likely dies but could end up being one of the final heroes)
    - Varys (what part does he play now? he can't defend himself)
    - Littlefinger (same as Varys)
    - Meera (she's done her part by helping Bran survive beyond the wall)

    50% chance of death
    - Daeny (I think she might unexpectedly die)
    - Missandei (likely saved by Grey Worm)
    - Bronn (dear lord I hope the Bronnx survives)
    - Tormund (who knows, could see him sacrificing himself)
    - Gendry (likely shoulda kept rowing)
    - Qyburn (either slain like the Mad King's Pyromancer for doing Cersei's bidding or survives because he was never actually loyal to the Lannisters)

    25% chance of death
    - Tyrion (might die, but I could see surviving as the best man to advise a King/Queen)
    - Sansa (doubtful they'll kill her off, though I don't see her place in the end)
    - Brienne (one of the final heroes)
    - Jamie (one of the final heroes)
    - Davos (same as Tyrion)
    - Gilly and Little Sam (doubtful that they die, especially with Craster's blood in them)

    0% chance of death
    - Jon (if he does, his resurrection was stupid IMO, might become The Night King)
    - Arya (survives, explores the world after everything is over)
    - Bran (3ER for the coming millennium or ends up becoming The Night King)
    - Sam Tarley (gonna be a superstar Maester)

    There's a lot of stuff to unpack from that trailer and all of the theories that have been formulated since the original book came out in the late 90's.

    Will there be an Azor Ahai? Will it be one person? Will it be a trio of people? If I was a betting man, Jaime ends up being the Azor Ahai. If it's more than one person, it'll be Theon, Jaime and Jon.

  • 50% Daeny!!??

    Image

    If Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons dies................we burn this mother down.


    Thanks for playing along JG, should be an epic ending to IMO the greatest show in the history of TV (I waffle between GOT and Breaking Bad). The ending shall confirm or deny for me.

  • Bahaha that gif. It's GoT... I would be surprised if one of the two between Daeny and Jon DON'T die.

    If I had to be completely honest, I wouldn't even make a list like that. It'd be more like this:

    50% chance to die:
    Everyone

    Safe:
    No one (shit, that means Arya lives)

    I do like your list, I just think it's going to be even more brutal than we expect. Barring a LOST ending, GoT has been the best show I've watched start to finish.

    Short life expectancy forecast episode 3.

    Tormund, Beric, Edd, Breinne, Podrick, Greyworm, Bran, Jamie, Bronn, The last of the Dire wolves, Nymeria and Ghost.
