    I just thought that it was this jackass's horse.



    Maybe just a little worse for the wear.


    That's what I thought. So what's the symbolism there, if this show knows what that is any more?

    Arya kills Jon Snow. Uses his face to get close to, and eventually kill Dany. 

    She goes off with Gendry. Sansa on the throne. Tyrion as her hand.
    So, Arya confronts Jon and tries to get him to see logic.  He sticks to his loyalty bullshit, as always, and she has no way to get past him beyond killing him.  (We dont know that)  She puts his face on and kills Dany...reveals that it was Arya.

    I love that.  Sad for Jon but cool overall.

    What about the city wrecking dragon?

    So many cool options.
    I don't think Jon needs convincing.  He might be the one to off Dany

    yeah, I honestly don't see a place in the world for Jon, other than to help rid the world of Targaryens including himself and Drogon.  

    Unless seeing the carnage gives him a change of heart and he wants to rule...

    but every character brought back to life has re-died after serving a purpose.

    I feel like we are headed to the abolishing of the throne.

    Right, I think Jon's death is guaranteed once he serves his purpose. I think the original assumption is that it was to help defeat the army of the dead and the night king, but it may have actually been to end the rule of the iron throne and take out Dany, which makes me wonder what Arya's role is at this point. Tyrion, Jon and Arya have the biggest arcs to complete. The biggest curveball they could throw out yet is Bran actually have some sort of function in the end of it all.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    I think Arya might be done.  She may actually go be lady of Storm's End.  Between the Hound getting through to her that he was the end result of a lifetime of hate and seeking vengeance.... and witnessing the carnage at ground level, she is going to retire from killing.

    Bran to me is the biggest wildcard.

    I really thought that Arya was going to catch up to Jaime, kill him, take his face, and use that to get close enough to Cersei to take her out.

    I was way off.

    Until Cersei acknowledged Jamie’s wounds, I was thinking the same thing.

    I'm not so sure that Cersei and Jamie are dead yet either.

    It wouldn't matter if they were alive anyway, they also have nothing to live for.

    Going back a few pages, I bet anyone that named their daughter “Khaleesi” or “Daenerys” after the character is second guessing that choice now, lol

    I don't see any scenario were Arya kills Jon just for his face. Jon looked disgusted and ready to turn against Dany once she started burning the city. But even if he didn't, I don't think Arya would kill him.

    So I didn't catch that Varys was trying to poison Dany or was poisoning here and she stopped eating. Maybe it's his fault she went crazy.

    Rumor is that books 6 and 7 are complete and Martin has a deal with HBO to delay publishing until season 8 concludes

    I have said that was my suspicion before....  Not sure if it is true, and not sure if the Barristan Selmy-actor would know.  

    It makes sense though, for HBO to want the 'exclusive' on the story and the ending.

    I think the books will end quite differently.  I believe that the show runner is creating new content that probably goes before Martin for his blessing but isn’t based on unfinished manuscripts of the final books.  I have nothing to base that on but instinct
