    If Tormund Giantsbane dies in this upcoming battle – does it mean that there’s some kind of curse for Giants on this show? LOL

    I was first very certain that Jorah couldn’t possibly die, especially after recovering from greyscale….cos why’d you cure him from a deadly disease just to kill him off? But now that I think about it….His reunion with Dany shows us that she has definitely forgiven him….so could Jorah’s purpose this season be to die and become the wight that Jon’s squad brings back to Dany in Dragonstone? And that would cause her to turn against the Army of the Dead….and finally plan an attack against them? Seeing Jorah as a wight right in front of her should cause her to seek vengeance and WAR against the Night King, right?

      Tormund has got to get with Brienne first before anything happens. Not sure on Jorah’s fate. He’s in the nice person category we don’t want to see die, so he will.

      • Asher Forrester

        I hope you’re right on Tormund…..cos if he dies I’d be devastated!!!

        We are still missing a BIG emotional death this season…..so I could definitely see Jorah’s death being that missing piece! sadly….

    • J-me not Hi-me

      Oh my God. If Jorah is the wight that’s brought back I will personally riot.

      Your thoughts on this?

    • J-me not Hi-me

      I agree with two minor differences
      1) We finally saw Littlefinger back in his master manipulator mode this past episode, playing Arya.
      2) Dragons are awesome.

    • BearMustaine

      Yeah cause the books arent finished and they have nothing to go on… the writers don’t have the chops to deal with a littlefinger or a Varys story. We have to wait for the books to get a satisfying ending for these greats.

  • Jill Balderama

    Sansa needs some confidence and Aryia needs some humility. Maybe they will find this together as sisters and then they get rid of Littlefinger for good!

  • SaraMadridista

    I am more interested in littlefinger planting that for Arya than am interested, in that sorry for the word, idiotic plan if going beyond wall, trying to catch a white walker.
    I mean the only ones who are moving on regular speed in this show is white walker, now watch Jon and co like move so fast that they find are half waaaaaay beyond the wall for the sake of the plot.
    The show essence was the game of thrones politics, the reason why characters that made us fall in love with show such Littlefinger, Varys, Tyrion are being background noise for all magical stuff.

    This whole season has the feelings of watching a marvel superhero story more than GOT, even the banter level is that of superheros banter, am just waiting for an Ironman to fly and show up out of nowhere in the show by now.

    Post podcast predictions:

    Littlefinger is exposed and either hurts or kills Sansa. Arya kills him in retribution.

    Cersei has her baby but she won’t survive the series.

    Beyond the Wall, Davos will perish.

    Sam meets Bran and together they tell Jon about his heritage, before he gets intimate with Dany.

    Dany will die and Jon (perhaps Tyrion as well) will fly a dragon to destroy the White Walker army.

    Jaime dies during a heroic and unselfish moment saving someone else.

    Tormund and Brienne make the beast with two backs and have plenty of 6’8” children.

    • J-me not Hi-me

      I like most of these predictions, especially Tormund and Brienne having giant warrior babies, but I cannot in good conscience give a thumbs up to any list of predictions that includes Sansa and Davos dying.

      • TrentC

        Yes they are rather dark predictions, apologies. Hot takes right after listening to the podcast.

        Maybe this. People are not liking the Loot Train name for last week’s episode. How about The Highgarden BBQ?

        * I’m sad that Dickon was turned into a hot dog 🙁

        • J-me not Hi-me

          Bahahahahahaha! In seriousness though, they did a surprisingly good job of making us like a character after such minimal screen time. I was also sad to see him go.

  • J-me not Hi-me

    Y’all are acting like anyone who dies beyond the wall will automatically rise again as a wight, like zombies on The Walking Dead. Doesn’t the Night King have to raise them? Hence burning the bodies, so there’s nothing to be raised?

  • Caleb Glaser

    Why have all the episodes this season been so short? With all we have to cover and finalize in the show, why aren’t the episodes longer than 45 minutes?
