    Do you think that Brienne was maybe talking to Howland Reed in that tower, that hooded man bringing in food to them? That man just seemed too coy with his details and had this smirk, plus they’re pushing this R+L=J storyline and he’s the last surviving witness. If not do you think we’ll get Howland Reed on the show.

      That’s a cool theory. Works better than my “Howland Reed is the High Sparrow” Theory. I like that. I also think we are made to think Sansa would be lighting a candle to call for help from Brienne, but I don’t think that’s the case, I think that it’s The Umbers.

  • Walda Frey pie, I love it. Don’t think there’s enough pastry in WF for that though.

    Great show guys, as usual. One little comment though. Terri, every time you talk, we hear crazy jingling noises. Are you wearing a bunch of maester chains or something? It’s a bit distracting.

    I’ve recently come across a really interesting theory that could explain why the Ironborn and Kingsmoot won’t be shown this season.

    What if the show is holding off on this because it doesn’t want to yet reveal that Daario is also Euron Greyjoy? There’s a great theory video on YouTube by Alt Shift X that explains their remarkable similarities in detail.

    Here’s the link:

    When this season ends, it would be awesome if you bring Rob for a book club. He mentioned that he will listen to it, so i guess he is going to read AFFC and ADWD after this season.

    His opinion of long time show watcher and recent book reader woul be really appreciated.

    I think Josh is wrong about Meereenese story going to season six.
    I thik the city will be destroyed by dragons in the finale. And Dany burning Daznak’s Pit in ep. 9 is the thing that starts it all.

    Finale is called “Mother’s Mercy”. Dany will be responsible for destruction of the city and the deaths of her children.
