    Listening to this at wk and the Bran connection to flying a dragon was one i have been thinking about for a while. Happy to hear Josh is feeling the same way. Bran hasnt done much of anything since he’s been back so it’s obvious the show is saving him for something big… what bigger twist than for him to take back control of the ice dragon by warging into it when we all think the white walkers have the upper hand. Can’t wait to see if this pans out.

    2 lost references in one 45-minute podcast.. you love to see it

  • The scene towards the end when Jon wakes up, and the first thing he says is “I’m so sorry (about Viserion)” and Dany just gives him this look that says “You really GET me!”

    Also if my theory that there is a leak in Dany’s camp is true next week would be the time for it to come out. Still have no clue who it would be though…

    • Officer Christine

      Varys seems the most likely.

  • John Ottaviano

    Rob & Josh,

    In the question regarding whether Sansa or Brienne should go to King’s Landing, why is it imperative that ANYONE go to King’s Landing, especially without sufficient backup like a couple of dragons or several thousand unsullied warriors? What would be the consequences if they ignored the request?

    Love the coverage and look forward to the finale!!

  • SaraMadridista

    Didnt NK actually revive all deads in Hardhome battle from distance? I mean without touching them.

    if I remember correctly, hound already told Arya about her sister’s suffering in king’s landing, so this even make less of sense more and more.
    Can NK even ride a dragon?? am genuinely asking.

    • TrentC

      Yes in the one creepy scene where he’s looking right at Jon, he seems to only raise his hands and the dead come back as wights.

      • SaraMadridista

        So he could have raised the dragon without need to use chains, we would have asked less questions

    • Buck Hondo

      I don’t see any reason why NK couldn’t ride a dragon. I do wonder if he and the dragon can fly over the wall, since it’s supposed to be protected with enchantments. Benjen/Coldhands said that he couldn’t pass it or even get too close. Also, since the wall ends at the sea near Eastwatch, I don’t see why they couldn’t just fly around it.

      • SaraMadridista

        Aren’t targaryen only people who can ride dragons? or just rules change after it dies

        • Buck Hondo

          The GOT Wiki says that the Targaryens are only the most recent people able to ride dragons, suggesting a time when other people did it. I honestly don’t know what the “show rules” are for this, but it makes sense to me that once the dragon becomes a wight the rules could go out the window. I kind of want to see the Night’s King riding that dragon…and then Bran wargs into it and starts doing barrel rolls!

          • SaraMadridista

            Well with a lot of things not making sense at least to me lately in show, I guess making NK ability to fly a dragon should come naturally and him flying over the wall too 🙈

          • Buck Hondo

            It seems that way to me too, lately. It’s still a great show; GOT on its worst day is still the best show on TV, but it seems like ever since the writers had to start working without a lot of source material there have been some sloppy storytelling moments. Still love it, though, and I can’t wait for the spin-offs.

  • Buck Hondo

    Thinking about possibilities for next season, I could see Daario Naharis making an appearance at some point. Maybe in a situation where things are looking hopeless for our heroes, and then Daario shows up with the Second Sons to save the day. It would be going against Dany’s orders, but Daario would disobey orders for love, surely.

    OR Cersei was talking about hiring the Golden Company to come over from Essos and fight for her side. How great would it be if they show up and Daario Naharis is leading them? Cersei would be so screwed…

  • CamPT

    Was thinking the chains came from Hardhome or somewhere where there was civilisation north of the Wall.

  • Scott French

    I’m wondering if Qyburn and Samwell can pull a Geordi La Forge and hack the Locutus wight to mess with the Borg undead.

  • zorro

    The only thing that makes sense to me in the Sansa/Arya storyline is that Sansa is actually working with Cersei for some reason…..
    Sending Brienne away, her conversations with Jon earlier on about Cersei….
    Any thoughts?

    • you ok zorro? Stop eating what you are eating.

  • TrentC

    Samwell left Oldtown. Any idea where he was headed? I completely missed it if they spoke about his destination.

    I can’t see Sam just being the chronicler of the story…he must have another important thing to do before this all over.

    • J-me not Hi-me

      I think he’s heading to Winterfell. He had just heard that Bran was back there and talking about the White Walkers, so it would make sense for Sam to go ally with the only other people who are taking the threat seriously.

  • Buck Hondo

    Bran’s aloofness is pretty annoying and creepy. That’s probably why we see him show up at Winterfell so quickly, he was creeping everybody out at Castle Black. Edd was like, “I’ve got nothin’ but respect for your bro, kid..but you’re freakin’ me out. Lets get you down town to Winterfell, posthaste!”

    Either Bran is so disconnected now from the petty goings-on of the world that it doesn’t occur to him to clue his sisters in regarding Littlefinger, or he knows what’s going to happen is something that has to play out so he’s not interfering. I lean toward the first explanation. Just before Meera leaves she says, “Bran…” and he replies, “I’m not, really.” He’s just the Three-Eyed Raven now, and the Three-Eyed Raven just doesn’t care about the things Bran would care about. Bigger fish to fry.

    Regarding the time during the North of the Wall scene.. I heard on another Podcast (no shade), they calculated the distance based off of the wingspan of each (Distance=Rate x Time)… A raven traveling would’ve taken approx. 1 day & 8 hours to arrive at Dragonstone, and a dragon would’ve made it North of the Wall in approx.18.75 hours (The wingspan used for this math is a Pterosaur) so basically this time adds up to 2 days and 2 hours roughly. This isn’t taking into consideration Gendry’s time. Conclusion: Math is fun
