    Jon probably doesn't want to punish children for the sins of the father because he is punished for being a bastard.  not his fault.  its what his father did

    ''Hey Mica come talk to us about Game of Thrones'' That's my cue to turn off.

    what if Arya kills Jaime. then with her awesome Faceless God powers she disguises herself as him to kill Cersei. Fulfilling the fortune tellers prophecy of All her Children Dying and her being killed by her brother

    Going off the "Jaime will kill Cersei" theory, Tywin said, right before he died, that Tyrion isn't his son. I don't think he was disowning him. I think he meant it literally. If Raegar fucked Tywin's wife and gave her a child that wasn't his, Tywin would have reason to hate Tyrion. So we have Daenerys and Jon who are Targaryens. What if Tyrion is the third, one dragon for each of them? Daeny has them make dragonglass to fight the white walkers and they overthrow Cersei, in whichever order. Jon rules the north while Tyrion rules the south. Daeny goes back to Esos since she already rules that entire half of the world.


    Boom.

      An interesting idea, but it feels to nice for GoT. This is after all the same series that had the Red Wedding and everything involving Ramsey Snow and Joffrey. Plus, Tyrion doesn't have a claim to the Iron Throne. Maybe I'm overthinking things though, I've been playing a lot of Crusader Kings lately.

      @DarkTempler7 If he IS Raegar's son, then being 11 years older than Daeny and 10 years older than Jon would give him claim to the throne. At least over Jon. But now that I think about it, they wouldn't pull that twice, would they?

      I meant that the theory would make him a bastard that hasn't been acknowledged or legitimized. Like I said though, I've been playing a lot of Crusader Kings, so my brain is defaulting to the games rules right now.

    Tyron is the 3rd dragon rider, Tywin made a comment about Tyron not being his son, Tyron is said to have more platinum hair like the Targaryens as opposed to the gold of the Lannister, and the dwarfism could have been a result of the bad genes of Targaryen in-breading

    House Tyrell ships could be seen in the end of season 6 with Martell, Greyjoy, and Daenerys's own Targaryen ships.

    I feel that Sansa will side with Littlefinger enough to get the Vale's army under her control through some Ramesy level trickery.

    I feel like if they do bring back a wight Hodor, they 100% have to bring back a wight Summer.

    I'm not sure about dragonglass potentially being a cure to greyscale, and the reason why shireen was able to survive it.


    I thought that greyscale was basically described in similar terms to a buffed chicken pox - children are known to be able to survive it, but in adults it's a dramatically more serious condition.

    Arya's scene with the lannister guards - I felt like the scene showed that the idea was beginning to dawn on arya that not everyone she hates deserves to die.

    I still think the gift that Euron was talking about will be Brightroar, the missing Lannister Valyrian steel greatsword.

      ehhhh, I find it super unlikely that euron's gift would be something which had never been mentioned on the show before.

    Could you guys have a GOT expert on the panel from anyone who works at RT? Not like a GOT googler, but like someone who has read all the books and can let us know information about the show that viewers may not know?

      Ashley and Burnie have both read the books I believe.

    This was a really awsome aftershow Ashley!!! I would love to see it continue through the rest of the season!!

    I think it was interesting how much effort they but into making Dragonstone look like a palace almost like they wanted you to think Dani would rule from there instead of King's Landing

      the show has a tendency to downplay the size and power of the castles (hello Eyrie and Twins), so I'm really glad that they kept the splendour of dragonstone.

    This is a great idea, totally down for this to continue.

    Theories:

    1. What if mad king "BURN THEM ALL BURN THEM ALL" = Bran + mad king a la
    "hold the door" = Bran + Hordor
    Burn them all referring to the white walkers.
    2. What if Jamie and Cersei are bastards of the mad king and Joanna? 

    The mad king had a thing for her, and could've had his way with her. The twins have blonde/platinum hair, have a thing for each other, Cersei is bat shit crazy, and has a fire fetish. And Tyrion is definitely his father's son.

      2- odd because that theory is a pretty long standing one except it's Tyrion who is theorized to be mad kings child not the twins.

      At this point, I think it'd make sense since that he is since we need a third person to ride the third dragon like the 3 headed dragon sigil.

    In the book Arya outright wargs into a cat while blind.

    The White Walkers are the ice demon people. Wights are the zombies.

    You see The Mountain's face when he is heading into the room to kill the shame caller.


    As a personal theory, I think that the secret of Valerian steel lies in some sort of forging involving volcanic vents or lava flows since Old Valeria was near an active volcano.  Could also be one of the secrets to Greyscale and its connection to fire.  I don't know if they are going to revisit that mystery though since all of the major players are now in the kingdom proper.

    Of course Sam is going to have more point than to just tell Jon about the dragon glass. He is learning to become a Maester, he will have more contribution. Would love more of these for each episode.

    Joffrey's sword was put away until Tommen was ready to have it. So i think right now it is put where ever Tywin stored it.
