  • Game of Thrones - last season

    Nobody watching this anymore?

    I saw the preview of the 2nd episode and it looks Jaime is in trouble. Normally I'd expect to see a trial by combat, with Brienne choosing to fight for him and possibly Arya for the Starks. But the show has grown soft lately and I have doubts they still have the guts to kill off characters people have grown fond of.

        I re-watched all 7 seasons before the start of this one. My feeling is that the writers have gone a bit soft. Hopefully the ending will be up to par with the shocks in earlier seasons.

        I did. I just want it to finally end (I didn't like that one-year break they took).

            What is your definition of "Fat"?

              I saw it on Monday.

              Episode was essentially about scène setting, bringing most of the surviving characters in the Stark/Targaryn camp to Winterfell in preparation for the battle in episode 3.
              Seemed a bit hurried and more could have been made of Jon finding out about his true parentage. Heavy foreshadowing around it though. Jon rides a dragon. Golden company arrive at Kings Landing but potential conflict between them and Euron and hence Cercei hinted at, I think they will mutiny latter in the season.

              Sansa has porked out a bit and even Arya has put on weight.

              Episode 2 trailer hints that Daenerys's army is planning to fight outside the walls with the official series trailer only showing Starks and Jamie fighting in the castle.

              After the conversation between Jon and Samwell re Jon's parentage I believe Danny will die later in the season, probably saving Jon, and Jon will take up his claim to be king.

                Sansa just got married in real life. A lot of women put on weight after marriage. With the series ending, the producers may not have enough coercion to make her lose weight.

                  Jaime is there so he could activate a spat between Jon and Dany, over what should be done to him. Dany will probably try to assert her view as the Queen, and Jon's real identity will be revealed. It could also worsen the break between Tyrion and Dany. He already has doubts after seeing her behaviour. How I would picture this: a trial by combat with Brienne fighting for Jaime and Arya fighting for Bran + Red Wedding. Brienne dies. Jaime is sentenced to death. Tyrion gets him out of jail just as Jaime did for him. But since the army of the dead is approaching, a trial by combat would be a luxury. So, I think they'll throw him in prison (Jon, Tyrion and Sam prevailing over Dany). But will Arya be content with that or will she take matters into her own hands and... Jaime's face?

                    No Jamie will be forgiven. He his shown fighting in Waterfell in the trailer for episode 3.
                    There May be some disagreement between the Starks and Danny however as the trailer shows only the Starks plus Jamie fighting in the castle itself.
                    though one theory I have-
                    Danny plus her army sent away before the dead arrive so that they can attack the dead army in the rear while it is engaged with the Stark forces defending Winterfell.

                      Indeed, I've re-checked and he is briefly seen fighting in one of the pre-season trailers.
                      Anyway, I hope we get some drama and main character deaths, the writers have been soft in recent seasons (the Hound survives, Jon survives twice - the stabbing & the Battle of the Bastards, Arya miraculously survives, Jamie survives the horse charge etc.) It's getting too soft and cheesy. This wasn't supposed to be "How to Ride a Dragon".

                        Episode 2 was more preparation for the big battle in episode 3.
                        if the big battle is in 3 what are they going to do in 4,5 and 6?

                          I asked because she looks like the type in real life that has trouble keeping weight off. And it seems like Sansa the character was piling on more and more clothes in the last season to disguise fat.

                            Interesting that the Night King was shown lining up with his White Walkers. It could mean that he is on his dragon but there was a supposed leak a few months ago that said that while a large part of his army would attack Winterfell he would by pass and go straight for Kings landing.
