Not sure why everyone online is sure he is going to die. GRRM is not going to end it with all the 'good guys' alive and all the 'bad guys' dead. Would be perfectly fitting for him to be in a winning position at the end.

Not seeing the big picture? He's like the only guy who has come out on top consistently throughout the whole series.

Yep, even after completely fucking up with Sansa marrying her off to Ramsey, he gets back in good graces with her(kinda) in the battle against Ramsey. He has control over sweet Robin and the Vale as well.

He may die... but I don't think it's a given that he is going to.

I think he's going to die, but its going to be Varis after LF tries to worm his way in with Dany.

Early on but in the show lately he has one failure after another. The Sansa thing blew up in his face. He really had no clue about Ramsey and that backfired on him. I am with Orsun. He is going to get his.

I disagree on the GRRM thing.

I think it would be more GRRM if they win the White Walker battle but no one is left around to enjoy the victory. I think Strife's comments above is totally dead on in some respects about the Hound. You can do all the planning you want but in the end you can't control the random nature of things. Tyrion's bug speech covers this very topic.

Littlefinger is the very kind of guy that GRRM will kill.

Littlefinger is the guy climbing 10 steps of a ladder to get to the top. After years of scheming when he is on the 9th step and just about to reach number 10 a Wile Coyote Anvil drops on his head. THAT is GRRM.

GRRM breaks all the molds between good and evil and he kills the confidence of people rooting not only for the good guy but also for those people rooting for the bad guy. GRRM will break Jake's heart with the death of Littlefinger in exactly the same way he breaks other peoples hearts by killing off the good guys.

It is what he does. GRRM IS cousin Orson (hmm, I just got that) smashing beetles.

I seem to remember that Targaryens had a tendency to marry their close relatives.... maybe Jon and Dany to cement Westeros against the Army of Wights?

Since we are close to Season 7 I guess I will revive the longest thread on the board.

I have been re-watching the previous 6 seasons getting ready for the July release and I have to say after reading all my previous post and binge watching the entire series I have a different take on each season then I did when I watched it live.

I read my old thoughts and I disagree with this Vllad guy now.

Seasons 1-3 while entertaining is kind of irritating to watch the Starks bumble their way into death. I really enjoy 4 through 6 much more once you see all the shows back to back. I complained about the speed of the show previously but I really think they did a much better job once I went back and saw them again.

This show is much better watching it binged then once a week.

Maybe!

I'm rewatching the entire series. It's amazing how enjoyable this show still is the 2nd (3rd/4th) time. Stuff makes a lot more sense the 2nd time around.

One question I'm not sure about...

Back when Tywin is in Harrenhall and Arya is his cup bearer, when Littlefinger comes and sees Tywin and Arya is giving him wine... I'm trying to decide whether or not Littlefinger recognized her enough to know who she was. I'm thinking he thought she looked familiar only, but didn't recognize her enough to actually know who she was. But, I'm not 100% convinced.

I always took it as she looked familiar but he didn't know who she was directly. Otherwise Littlefinger would have used her for something. Littlefinger has been bungling in recent years but there is no way he would pass up that opportunity.

Yep.

That to me wasn't a great episode, but it set up a ton of shit to happen, so I guess it fulfilled it's intended purpose.

I'm not sure how much I like how OP they are making Arya... I'm curious if the faceless men come and track her down and kill her eventually. Why would they just let her leave with no repercussions?

Sucks to be Samwell. His job right now sucks ass!

Because they know she is doing things that they want. Namely murdering dicks in Westeros. The Iron Bank of Bravos still has a fuck ton of money owed to them by the Crown of Westeros. Sansa is gonna kill Cerci so the Iron Bank won't get there money but they will get payed in blood.

That and the Faceless Men kinda work with/for/allies/respect? the Lord of Light so they may have seen something in the fires regarding her. Granted after she has murdered everyone in Westeros they may decide to kill her or invite her back in the fold. Who knows.


Granted once a girl has truly becomes No One then it won't matter if she lives or dies. The only reason the girl matters is because the girl is still Arya Stark.
