It's going to be so ****ed up when Jamie has to kill the mad queen to prevent her from using all the wild fire in the city to stop the Targaryan army. The queen slayer. Cersei/Jamie destined for civil war.

John Snow, newly named King of the North vs. his sister, Sansa/Littlefinger. Littlefinger wants the iron throne. Sansa looking more confident in herself then ever before playing the game. Like the Lannisters, a break is headin this direction.

How does Bran fit in... The hound, brotherhood w/o banners, Arya, Brienne... Still not sure the blackfish is dead. All that being said, the white walkers are still threatening from the north. What about Benjen?
Don't forget the other half of the Iron Islands fleet. They will almost assuredly have to side with the Lannisters

Winter has come winter has come... Forget the lannisters Starks targaryeans and all other boring family lineages. It all boils down to dragons vs white walkers.

Fatty is going to find something in the library to turn the tide in favor of humanity.

Is Littlefinger now the greatest danger to Jon?

Dany told Dario she will probably need to marry someone in westros . Who over there is worth marrying besides Jon? Littlefinger, Jaime? Totally looks like we will see some more incest. Jon and Dany will hook up. He's the perfect match for her. He doesn't care about leadership and she would gain the entire north.

No....I think that's going to be the final battle.

Maybe not as bad the stories in the book about the giants ****ing the regular sized women after they captured them....but pretty damn close.

I think I remember that being speculated as to why Hodor was as big as he was....half giant.

So are there other confirmed stocks of wildfire?

I was just thinking how Cersei kinda effed herself using it all on the High Sparrow with DT on the way.

Benjen talked about magic in the wall that keeps the Others and dead from passing it. Possible endgame it made me think of:

-Bran crosses the wall, breaking the magic since he's been touched by the Night's King

- the white walkers / dead flood into westeros, epic battles follow with the walkers nearing total victory

- Sam in his studies rediscovers the magic used to create the wall long ago. It is reinstated (but by who?), instantly destroying the armies of the dead that are now all beyond the magic line of the wall.

George RR must be quite frustrated right now. He seems like a surly old man who feels the need to best the show with crazy surprises, but due to the success of his work (and the internet), every fan theory has been stated, and since he told the show creators his planned end, he's racing to finish his story first. Where does he go from here?

At this rate, the books conclusion will feature something absurdly unpredictable like... I don't know... Tommen and Walder Frey activating the Titan of Braavos (like in Ghostbusters 2) and laying destruction on the night king.

I thought wildfire was all over the city, including the sept. Tyrion used wildfire in a battle last season or before.

Yeah, but I thought the secret was kinda about "one more" cache of the stuff.

And it's not like it can be absolutely everywhere under town. Otherwise the sept fire would've been pretty tough to contain.

Anyway, I'm not saying I know. I'm saying I don't know.

I think it is located under primary buildings and population centers but may be wrong. It's not continuous.

The reason why Jamie killed the mad King was because he was losing the war and planned to take everyone with him if he was going to lose. Jamie was ordered to light them all up and he obviously didn't by killing the pyromancer and the King.

There's stockpiles all over the city according to Jamie as he said to Brienne.

We did find out the wall has magic or some other purpose though. We'll see the true purpose of the wall next season probably.

Quote:
It's not just ice and stone,” he told Bran and Meera. “Ancient spells were carved into its foundation. Strong magic. To protect men from what lies beyond. And while it stands, the dead cannot pass. I cannot pass.”
Presumably the same magic kept the others out of the cave Bran was in until he was touched by the Knights King. There's other theories that it holds an ice dragon etc.

...That would be the greatest ending of all time. Literature would be rendered obsolete because nothing old ever top it...uness there was a luck dragon too.

The funny thing is that if the city was indeed sitting on an entire stock of wildfire those damn kids would have blown it half to hell by now. The lannisters and her new hand must have it locked away in a vault until they feel like partying again.

Theres something to that I believe. Though I am not sure he "turns bad" because it seems to me that the Starks and White Walkers/Nights King are more connected than we are led to believe. We are given tidbits of Bran the Builder is the creator of the wall, the Nights King is the 13th Lord Commander of the nights watch, though we dont know his name since its been erased. Theories are that it is a Stark or a Snow (popular bastard name and had the wildings/ ygritte spooked for some reason).

Something with the Starks history is off and I am not entirely sure they rebel against the Nights King eventual assault to the south.

Shouldn't Jon and Sansa hook up? They would be perfect. He isn't blood related and she is quite hot. Do it!
