    There is a scene from this season's trailer that shows a man, that looks like the Hound, coming out of a crate in what looks like the dragon pit  in King's Landing. Either he may be a wight or they set a trap for Cerci?

    I hope that another of the Night King's commanders get taken out in the next episode. We're 2 of 4 remaining thanks to Jon and Sam. That'll be a freakin awesome consolation if( and when) the search party fails... 

    At this point does Cerci believe the truth about joffrey's death, and will Bron fight the Mountain because it'll be Cerci's punishment for the secret meeting?

    Lastly, during the inevitable battle with Night King's commander, maybe, where *fingers crossed* Jon kills the 3rd head hancho, and maybe gets himself killed in the process.... He'll be brought back again by Thoros.

    What if when they bring a Wight to kingslanding it sees Gregor and somehow the white walkers take control of him and make him wreak havoc?

    My thinking is that the White Walkers are taking their time because they are waiting for Winter to take a full grip on the land, beyond the northern territories. Either because they can't survive for to long on warmer weather or it weakens them to a point that they wouldn't be effective in battle. Although that could just be the main leaders not the undead that they themselves raised as we saw an undead on the wall when it attacked Mormont. Then again they could also just be looking for that Horn that is suppose to be able to destroy the wall if it was ever blown.


    As for the whole leaving the Nights Watch or no one ever joining again, well that's unlikely. As taking the black is a way for criminals to avoid being punished for their crimes in a way that they would deem horrific(like getting your hand cut off for stealing), or killed for killing someone else. If they decided to leave without just because the ruling houses will see this as a reason to hand out justice to said criminals. As for how Samwell can become the next Tarly head, Deanerys could do the same thing that Stannis was going to do with Jon, release him of his vows to the Nights Watch and restore his status as the leader of his house.

      I think in the books it is established they can't survive in the heat. 


      After Jon removes the hand of the Wight that tried to kill Mormont, they take the still living hand and send it to Kings Landing. But when it arrives the hand is "Dead and rotten" and not moving.

    I think Benjen stark will be the evidence they need. Sure he said he cant go past the wall but if he cant then how  do they plan to bring someone else across the wall?

    When Gendry said "Our Dad's were friends", it puts a much darker spin on it when you remember that Jon's dad was actually Rehgar, who was killed by Robert

      To be more specific, their fathers were enemies in the war but Jon's dad was Eddard as oppose to Rhaegar. So on the surface level, yeah their dads were friends. With more information, their dads were enemies. With more understanding, their dad's were indeed friends.

    If Jaime saves Bron from Cersei's wrath and Bron saves Ellaria and Tyene on the way out, it could be a good parallel to Jaime saving Tyrion, then Tyiron killing Tywin. It could make Jaime even more pissed at Tyrion, or make him think it was a good choice.


    Either way, I still think Cersei was bluffing about the poison and wants Ellaria and Tyene to be in a constant state of panic for weeks without knowing how much time has passed and they're just planning to starve Tyene. 


    I disagree about Bran. Rewatching season 1, he was pretty boring aside from being a total brat. I need to rewatch 2-5, but I much prefer season 7 Bran to season 1 Bran.


    If Beric dies here in the show, maybe people will finally stop theorizing about Catelyn's return. It's possible he could die here in the show and it's Jorrah in the books. Assuming this mission will even happen. I think Jon and Sandor are the only ones in the group who are safe. Jon already died and his death has to be epic, if it even happens. Sandor has to face off with Brienne, Arya, and Gregor before this show's over or even come to some sort of understanding with Brienne and Arya. Everyone else will probably die, Beric and Jorrah being most likely in my opinion.


    Keep in mind that the next episode is 70 minutes and the one after that is 80. It's very possible they won't do the usual "second-last episode is the big one" now. Both of these are gonna be pretty big, and usually the huge second-last episodes are a huge battle that's been building up forever. That's not exactly the case here. We still have pieces of the puzzle not quite coming together.

    I think that being raised from the dead by the Red God's magic makes you immune from being raised as a Wight (not white walkers, the white walkers are the ice demon dudes). So Beric and Jon are immune.

      So wights=zombies, White Walkers=Necromancers. Right?

    I believe Daenerys her reaction to Jon going beyond the wall himself to get a walker was evidence enough that some feelings are brewing within. Sudden heavy breathing and immediately making an excuse to try and get Jon to stay.

    I hate not being able to be up to date on GOT. I only get to watch about 50% of RTP and Off Topic until the hint at something and I shut it off. I haven't really watched any of The Know since the season started, and certainly can't watch anything like this :(

    Whoever in the chat that said Valyrian steel is made of dragonglass has been reading too many fan theories. Nowhere in the novels does it talk about how Valyrian steel is made. There's a reference to the swords as "dragonsteel," but that is it.

      We know that it is called dragonsteel and that some of the maesters assume magics of some kind are used in the making of it. Dragon Glass could be a component of it, but that is just speculation as you say.

      In an earlier episode this season, one of the books sam was reading explicitly said that the valyrians used their dragons to melt dragonglass into their achitecture, which lead their buildings being strong enough to last centuries beyond the Doom while fully intact. 


      This indicates a very strong case that they would also add dragonglass to their iron which gave birth to valyrian steel.

      My comment was on the content of the novels. The person they quoted on chat claimed it was somewhere in the books, which it is not.

    Another complaint is that I wanted Dany to ask how he was cured and Jorah say that Sam Tarly cured him and when Dany's eyes widened as she remembered who she just burned, Jon smiles and says "Sam, looks like he is doing well in Oldtown." and then he goes on to explain that Sam is his best friend.

    That way Dany realizes she just burned the father and brother of the man who cured grayscale on her friend and who is also the best friend of a man she may love... she burned them like rickard and brandon stark mad queen style.

    There are some moments to appreciate but the fact that they are rushing everything, it rly does bleed thru on screen. Like instead of that organic natural passage of time that you feel thru thruout a season over the course of 10 episodes, you have this crammed, "montage" feel rather than an episodic feel. The scenes feel too cut and paste as they time hop to crunch and condense everything. I really don't understand how they could do this to the series. It's the one series that was perfect in every way, but now it is flawed because for whatever reason, they've decided to rush thru the climax.Why, oh why, oh why. :/

    By the way, to Jon and Adam:


    White Walkers are the Ice Demon guys


    Wights are the zombies


    You guys keep using the term "White Walker" to refer to the Wights.


    There are a small number of White Walkers, and they possess terrifying powers. Wights are a product of White Walkers, and they're essentially undead pawns that the White Walkers use to fight their battles. Both are frightening and deadly though.


    The group going north of the wall is trying to catch a "Wight." One of the undead zombie soldiers. It would be ridiculous to even try to catch and transport a magical Ice Demon that can resurrect any dead he comes by. A single zombie is much easier.
