So what are your fearless forecasts for the season? Some of mine:

- (Based on leaks and storyline) Jon Snow to ally (in a way) with Daenerys primarily to mine dragon glass and to fight the white walkers
- Infighting within Jon's camp, no thanks to Littlefinger
- Jamie kills or betrays Cersei
- Fucking Hound stars in a significant role in the fight with the white walkers (face turn!)

I'd say those are some pretty solid predictions.

I have a feeling Ayra won't end up exacting revenge on Cersei, at least directly. I also get the feeling she'll continue to miss out on reunions with the rest of the remaining Starks.

I'm so used to seeing Arya with her own story that I don't know where she will fit now that she's back.

When everything's settled, I am more curious as to where the three great players of the game (for me) end up -- Tyrion, Varys and Littlefinger.

Isn't Arya too OP though? Imagine her killing one of the servers/chefs/high guards of Cersei and then poisoning/killing her whenever she wants.

The snow-targaeryen alliance is going to come 90%. Jon gets his dragonglass. Where would the 3 dragons come to play though? Would daenerys battle cersei with all dragons? Or would the dragons fight alongside Jon? Would the dragons even obey Jon?

The Cersei-Jamie drama probably has the tendency to end like that since a lot of people do think its going to be Arya. Also.... Jamie vs The Mountain????????? :crazyeyes:

Clegane Bowl. Isn't that what we're all waiting for?

That's why I think Ayra will fall short when it comes to Cersei. Sure, she's had had her badass moments with the Freys, but the point is that they are cowards who acted tough, but ultimately aren't a competent enemy. Even as she descends further into madness, Cersei is still more dangerous and calculating.

I think the gift to Cersei would be Tyrion. Tyrion to invoke trial by combat again, chooses Jamie. Jamie accepts, Cersei feels betrayed, brother/sister/husband/wife feud starts between the two.

Euron somehow manages to cross paths, die and be revived by the Night King. White Walkers now have a fleet, have ships will travel. Hound's vision will now be possible, of the White Walkers invading a castle by the sea.

Calling it early that Night King will also get to control one of Daenerys' dragons.

Yeah, I've seen enough of Tyrion being captured and going through trial by combat. I'd say he'll stay with Daenerys till it's over.

Agreed. Although, that doesn't mean that it isn't Euron's plan. If so, I hope he doesn't succeed, forcing another rehash of that.

Speaking of Tyrion, is there any explanation as to how Cersei found out that Daenerys named him Hand of the Queen? Seems like one of those instances where information travels at the speed of plot, and she's found out that information simply so she and Jamie can have a dramatic conversation about it.

Tommen the Hypeslayer outlawed trial by combat, he's dead now just like Tywin. Cleganebowl hype resumes.

Cersei still has little birds (spies) even if Varys is gone from her service. She did have those kids burn the wildfire that destroyed the citadel last season. Then again Varys could be a double agent.

Good point. Still, even taking into account the little birds, and the chronology of events not taking place at quite the same time they're being shown on-screen, information - and characters, for that matter - do seem to travel at the speed of plot at times.

Would people actually want them to release everything in a day? I think that would kill the suspense and the hype. A season comes out every year so imagine binging that shit for 1 or 2 days. You'd have to wait for a year and now you're sad. :lol:

A binge can be fun, though. That's how I got into (and caught up on) the series in the first place. After that, it was a rude shock having to wait a week for a new episode, though ultimately very satisfying.

Calling it now that it's either Jamie who kills Cersei, or Arya posing as Jamie. Or Arya posing as Ed Sheeran.

Would Dany allow an alliance with the Starks even if Ned is with Robert's Rebellion to overthrow the Mad King, or would Bran warg his way back to Westeros to tell Jon and Dany about the R+L=J theory?

Given the White Walker threat, I think she's pragmatic enough. Finding out about R+L=J would obviously help.

Seems Ed Sheeran's cameo is getting a lot of hate. I neither like or dislike his music, but the amount of vitriol seems silly to me. It was a harmless cameo in a scene that was intended to give Aryra pause and humanise the Lannister army somewhat. He's apparently a fan, and Maisie Williams is apparently a fan of his, so they organised a cameo. Look, I'm all for getting caught up in the lore of the show and all that, but talk about overreactions. Mind you, I didn't immediately recognise him, only "oh, that's a guest star", so I guess that played a role in the cameo not bugging me at all.

Arya gets caught, invokes trial by combat, picks Ed Sheeran as her champion.

Ed Sheeran vs The Mountain is the next best thing to Cleganebowl.

I'm not a huge fan of cameos like this, because as I watch, I can't stop thinking "there's Ed Sheeran in Westeros" or whomever the guest star is, provided they aren't playing themselves. That being said, anybody who feels it takes away from the story or show or experience is a wet blanket and probably an absolute blast at parties (N) If you spend a minute of your day being actually angry or enraged or upset about this, you're a loser, plain and simple. And, given the aforementioned vitriol and nonsense that went on via social media, there's tons of them out there.

For sure. Disliking the cameo is one thing, and totally fair for the reasons you mentioned, but the outrage was really disproportionate.

I've read that he was planning on doing it anyway because of the toxicity that can permeate the platform, but if nothing else, it probably helped him make up his mind that he was making the right call.

After the first episode set the table, the second kicked things into high gear. Action and movement on all fronts, concluding with an enjoyable fight scene that makes it clear that the good guys - or at least, the ones who pass for the good guys in Game of Thrones, anyway - aren't going to have it easy.

I can see a lot of people not exactly mourning the Sand Snakes, and I'm kind of in the same boat (no pun intended). For some reason, I have a bad feeling about Olenna Tyrell. I also think Sansa is going to be in way over her head. She's been paying attention and learning how the game is played, but she's not the chessmaster she believes herself to be.

And of course, we have our first obligatory nudity of the season. :lol:

Dany's comment about Jon "bend(ing) the knee" was a sobering reminder that she's perhaps not that different to the other monarchs we've seen. That was a little disappointing, as was her fascination with Olenna, who as I said, I have kind of a bad feeling about at this point in time. The mere fact that she's outlived a lot of people and become cynical and jaded doesn't make her as smart as she thinks she is; at the end of the day, I still believe Tyrion is the sharpest mind in Westeros, at least in terms of doing what's best for society.

Andrew, very weird feeling with Olenna. What if she tipped off euron so he could attack the Dorne-bound ships to force Dany to take action and not lay siege? After all, she wanted revenge for what Cersei did.

That's definitely an interesting theory. It would fit her history of scheming and manipulation, but that being said, I'm not totally sure that's it, but something feels off there.

jesus christ that arya scene was way too intense for me. I kept thinking she'd get bitten by the wolf/direwolf and that'd be the end of her.

Remember that the plan for them to attack King's Landing was initiated by Tyrion. This supports Olenna's remarks to Danny not to listen to clever men. I think Olenna could be a snek here.

MAN was I disappointed in the snake princesses. All that hype for that? (N)

But they wanted to mobilise and attack King's Landing, too. They just figured the Unsullied and Dothraki would be a part of that. Either way, Yara's portion of the Iron Fleet would be on their way to King's Landing, and ambushed by Euron. Of course, that's not to say that Olenna won't spin things her way.

Agreed.

I thought Yara would die for sure in that battle. Interesting sneak peek on episode 3 plot: "Daenerys holds court; Cersei returns a gift; Jaime learns from his mistakes."

Yeah, I thought they were going to kill Yara off, though I get the impression Euron would've cut her throat had Theon tried to save her. As it stands, she's another hostage.

That was what I was expecting. Theon would charge Euron and Yara killed off a la Catelyn.

Regarding Arya, I think the direwolf she found is indeed Nymeria. Theory time! I think Arya recognized that Nymeria is now a wild beast, that's why she told the wolf "that's not you." Same case with herself.

It's kinda disappointing that Nymeria would not take part in the story anymore given the closure with Arya. So...where's ghost?

Last time Ghost was on-screen was when Jon was revived. Maybe he was left of Castle Black?

I always liked how the Greyjoy's squid sigil looks like. It makes squids fearsome!

Figured it would be something like that. I didn't see it as I don't believe they show it here, but I read about it on TV Tropes.

I don't watch anything after the show, even the preview of the next episode. After some risky googling, I found out they did confirm it.

Maybe Bran would need to warg into ghost at some point.
