[watching] SPOILERS Game of Thrones SPOILERS THREAD

#1
I am still enjoying GOT but yes it is not as good. Hope GRRM finishes the books.
I think the latest rumour is that he has finished the last two books but has been asked to hold back publication until after the TV series is finished.

Also that the TV series authors have been liaising with him and the resolutions are more or less in line with his plans.

PLEASE KEEP ALL GAME OF THRONES TALK HERE AND USE THE SPOILER TAG WHEN WRITING SPOILERS ABOUT IT.

Fucking hell, the firebombing of King's Landing was like Dresden. The white horse at the end was one of the best pieces of genre film outside of an Asian masterpiece.

Gendry for the throne anyone?

I will say this:

Arya is Death. Like it says in the Bible, Death rides a horse of pale ash. I believe Arya will kill Danny and Jon Snow will be proclaimed King. Jamie Lannister is not dead - because Nikolaj didn't get thanked like the other actors whose characters died during The Bells, and there wasn't a expose on Jamie like the other characters. I believe Jamie will be back for the final episode in someway.

I would like to point out that Danny has had this tyranny building in her since day one. Executing Sam's father and brother was an example of this.Her visions in the House of the Dying in season two seems to hint at her fiery destruction of Kings Landing - the burnt Red Keep she walks through and the Iron Thrown covered in "snow". (In the books this better explained). A good King/Queen would have shown mercy and given them a fair trial. She has slowly becoming the Mad Queen for a while now.

Totally agree Nathan. Once the snow like ash began to fall I started to remember the dream of the throne room in the snow.
Arya is indeed Death. The pale horse imagery is perfect. I am surprised Jamie might make it, will Cersei, will *their* child be raised in Pentos?
I agree re Danny, she has always wavered between good and evil and increasingly between sanity and insanity.
Sandor died well for me although I would have liked it to have been more clear he was leaping *into fire*.
Euron went well.
The burning of King's Landing was as horrible as it should have been, they spent the budget well.
So, Danny kills Jon, Arya and Jamie kill Danny, Tyrion rides a dragon, Gendry is crowned?
Or.. they all are burnt alive by Danny and the wheel turns again...

I agree about the white horse, that was my first thought. I vaguely recall a prophecy in the books that hinted about a white horse. Not so sure that Jaime is alive, but I really hope he is. Jaime is possibly my favourite character. I was amazed in the book that an obviously evil character could go through this kind of redemption.

Don't click on the spoiler tag if you haven't watched this week's final episode.

The ending is not one that I was expecting. Everyone (sort of) got what they wanted, and I never saw Bran winding up as king of the Six Kingdoms in some democratic process. I'm guessing Jon Snow will head off and become King Beyond the Wall; but I don't see why there is a need for the Nights Watch anymore, what with the threat of White Walkers eliminated and the Free Folk now presumably being led by Jon.

On another note, none of my predictions came true.

As someone who hasn't watched the rest of the series - well worth watching. Some of the prettiest fantasy ever put on screen.
Well worth watching the rest of the series
There are stories that grow during the full run, for example the bit where Brienne writes in that book at the end relates to an earlier episode and really neatly ties in Jamie's arc. Watching the rest of the series will really let you appreciate the total story.
