    Watching this now, after the season finale, it's pretty amazing how many things they got right in predictions.

    I don't think the legal lines of succession will matter.


    It may be a "huh, that's interesting", but I don't think it will be a point of serious conflict.


    Pretty much none of Dany's armies are following her because she's the only known living targaryen. 

    The people in westeros who may care about that are still only siding with her because of who she is and her strength, not her place in the line of succession.

    This episode left me wondering if the night king is still being led by children of the forest.


    With the whole "kill the one that made you, and you die" in white walker mythos now, if the children of the forest who first created the night king died, then the night king would die?


    Like, yeah there were some children who sided with the three eyed crow and with the first men in fighting the white walkers, but maybe that was a splinter group and there are still children, namely the ones who created the night king, who are leading/powering some portion of the undead army.


    This is a very far fetched theory.

    I did not expect the number of White Walkers this episode, at all; thanks for clearing that up guys. Very good info drop about the wights and who turned them - kill the head & the limbs shrivel.


    I am a little curious about what happens if more than 1 targaryen happens to be on a single dragon, cuz we've known from seasons past that the dragons are more powerful and grow around their

    parent(s)  what if that power rate is doubled if Jon is also riding Drogon, who seemed to be quickly attached to Jon


    I can wait on the Little Finger's arc ending next season... which'll probably end, hopefully, as the next to last scene of the last season when Bran is quietly telling Little Finger about everything he's seen him  ' accomplish ' moving up that damned latter from the beginning... and the stark sisters overhear and well y'knows..

      To your second point, from the books:


      It's finnicky as to how dragonriding works. It's said that while a dragon will have many riders in its life, it will never have more than one at a time, and a dragonrider has never had more than one dragon to ride. A well trained dragon will allow its rider to bring along guests, but it's also said that a dragonrider would never step foot on another dragon while the rider's dragon is still alive. That even Aegon the Conqueror wouldn't dream of mounting either of his sisters' dragons. Nothing about targaryen specifically is mentioned.

    Daenerys bringing her dragons isn't deus ex machina. Deus ex machina is an UNEXPECTED power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation. Because Gendry leaves  the group to send a raven to get Daenerys and we see her leave, makes not dues ex machina.

      I feel like Arya's been turning/just been pretty sociopathic for a few seasons now.

      It's just that since season 1, she's been in very dangerous environment surrounded by dangerous people and people who wish her ill will, that her sociopathy's been helping her.

      Now though she's surrounded by friends and she's not able to turn that off.

    The Night King killed the one that was burning his army. Drogon was just sitting there and Jon wasnt on yet. He had time.

    I think the Night King went for Viserion instead of Drogon with the intention of the dragon crashing through the ice, thus 'preserving' him. Jon Snow and the gang already encountered a wight polar bear so they know that other creatures can be turned. If the Night King had killed Drogon, maybe Jon could have warned Daenerys that she would need to deal with the body before the Night King did, either by getting the remaining dragons to carry the body away or by burning it (can dead dragons burn??). Having Viserion crash through the ice means that Jon et al would expect that the body wasn't retrievable (where did those chains come from?) and could then be kept as an ace in the hole.

      They confirmed it was just ice melting off the eyes when Jon's hand splashed up.

    To me, it's nitpicky to complain nobody else died. Every season we lose a lot of characters, but not many of them are very huge. We lost Margaery, Loras, Prettyboy McCousinface whose name I don't remember, etc. in one episode. Sure. But every other season, we only lose like two principal characters. Drogo and Ned. Robb and Catelyn. Joffrey and Tywin. This episode alone we lost Thoros, Benjen, and Viserion, and to me that made it more realistic than any single principal character's death. Jorrah and Sandor are good fighters. Jon and Tormund have to survive because plot. Yes. Beric dying right after Thoros wouldn't have any impact, so nearly everyone surviving wasn't a huge deal to me. It was definitely the smallest issue this episode's writing had.

    If the show wasn't getting record views every episode they would rethink season length, but it will just reinforce the idea of this Michael Bay esque season as better than past seasons. Also if Arya isn't playing Littlefinger like a fiddle I will be very upset, I was fine with the whole waif thing besides being rushed, but this would cement my displeasure.

    I imagine the chains came from Hard Home, it being a coastal fishing village. Maybe they're anchor remains from some of the ships that Stannis used to sail beyond the Wall so he could flank the Wildlings in Season 4.

    I want to see the Night King Riding Viserion, and next season i want to see who the Night King is.

    Well, that was unexpected:


    I decided to look into any indication as to how many White Walkers there are. Supposedly, Crasters son was turned into a white walker, not a wight. ( It never died and the skin went pale, never peeled, etc. )


    Ok, so how many sons has Craster given to the White Walkers? According to him, that was number 100! This wouldn't even be that surprising either, as he has apparently been doing this long enough to have multiple generations of daughters/wives, and at that time he had 19 wives.


    So, it sounds like there might be quite a lot more White Walkers out and about, probably trying to round up wildlings to add to the main army.

    So I agree with Jon that more people should have died. When I went into this episode, I considered only John Snow (King/Main protagonist), Gendry (Last of the Baratheon House and Arya's love interest) and the Hound (Who is probably fated to kill the Mountain) unkillable for plot purposes. I also feel that plot reason for sending Brianne of Tarth to King's Landing is for Jamie-Brianne tension, which ultimately will end up as a battle between the two, since Ned's sword needs to be reforged (Gendry?). I'm also totally tired of the dragons being the dues ex machina, as Jon pointed out. Frankly, you're totally right about the lack of episodes causing the whole thing feeling rushed. This whole last episode just felt like they were tying up loss ends from the Brianne discussion between Tormund and the Hound, to the Longclaw awkward debate. I feel like that they wasted the way Thoros died, since he was hyped as this drunken knight willing to take on enormous odds at yet he dies in his sleep frozen?

    I guess... what I want to see? A badass fight between the Clegane brothers. A sentimental fight between Jamie and Brianne, where honor dictates them to fight, but neither wants to. Gendry saving Arya somehow. Dragon on undead dragon action. Obsidian arrows blocking out the sun. The Iron Bank paying for Arya to kill Cersei after she fails to repay her debt. Oh and Gendry killing Melisandre and becoming the 'Prince who was Promised'.

      Just speaking to the point of Brienne being sent to King's Landing. 


      Littlefinger whispered the nonsense that Brienne could stop/kill Arya and it would fall within her oath to their mother.


      Sansa sent Brienne away regardless of Arya's behaviour. Trusts her sister moreso still.
