All the Lannisters save for Tyrion are going to die.
I imagine the remaining Starks will all live. Unfortunately that will include Sansa. I don't see Bran dying, he'll probably just go back to beyond what's left of the wall and meld back into a tree or something.
The Greyjoys, all of them could die for all I care, though I figure the sister will at least live.
Danny will probably live to be queen, not sure about Jon being king though. They'll probably have him die or not take the throne for some reason. It'll be a real lame move though if he doesn't just because Danny's his aunt.
Guessing Brianne will live, though I wouldn't mind if she died.
The Hound will finally kill the Mountain. Who knows if he'll survive to the end though.
Going to guess the Red Woman is going to die, same for that guy who's already died several times. Grey Worm, don't care either way, but it wouldn't be a loss. Same for Jorah I suppose. He's just there to be perpetually friendzoned by Danny. The merc that Danny was fucking in Essos is probably going to come to Westeros as reinforcements, and will probably get killed.
Vayrs I assume will live. Not like he's going to be around the heavy fighting. The Onion Knight will probably survive, same for Sam.
I'd like to see Qyburn get away somehow though he's probably going to get killed.
I really want Bron survive the series and get his castle. That's a 50/50 chance though.
Ideally the Night King just kills everyone and covers Westeros in eternal winter, but I doubt that's going to happen.
Ser Pounce: Takes Iron Throne and lives
Littlefinger: Is actually alive and stays alive to climb that ladda
Ned Stark: Comes back to life as a whitewalker
Catelyn Stark: Comes back to life as a whitewalker
Ellaria Sand: Rots in dungeon as she should for being a bad character
Who cares about Incest of Thrones? Re; Zero Season 2 was announced. Now I can eat popcorn watching Subaru suffer and die over and over again to save his loved ones without powers because he's literally a time looper without offensive powers, on a high fantasy world, that has to die and return to an earlier save point basically every episode to defeat witch edgelords and the occasional monster/serial killer.
On a more serious note, I still can't bring myself to catch up on GoT after S2 so I'm sticking up to the books and random YouTube spoilers.
EDIT: Just remembered I still have a GoT ebook on Amazon from a promotion on a chocolate box while reading this thread. This might be the most wholesome day on my life, thank you all.
Kind of disillusioned with the show since it went off-book. The characters, dialogue, and plot elements are becoming increasingly generic High Fantasy cliche's. The show started off somewhat promisingly (getting past the fact that everyone in Westeros speaks English instead of a made-up Fantasy language... never mind that their ancestors from the lost continent of Valeria spoke their own language and that everyone else in that world speaks a Fantasy language) and the first four seasons contained some strong writing with great character development and a lot of interesting world-building and background history. But the further the show strays from the books, the more this whole thing just resembles another second-rate Tolkien knockoff. The show's complex political machinations and dynamic character arcs impressed me greatly. But that was mostly what George R. R. Martin had written in the novels. Now it's all Good Vs. Evil in an "ultimate showdown" and I'm afraid the ending will be too damned predictable... unless of course the White Walkers turn everybody into the the living dead, which is sort of what the producers are doing anyway.
They hired a linguist to create some of the languages for the show. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_J._Peterson
Pretty sure they speak English. Would explain why they refer to the Western continent as Westeros and the Eastern one as Essos. Rather unimaginative names for continents.
I think in the books, the people of Westeros speak "Common," which sounds like the language everyone speaks in Dungeons & Dragons. I read somewhere that they are basically speaking English. Martin didn't want to do the kind of homework Tolkien did. I don't even want to touch the books, though. The longest novel I ever tried to read was Austin Tappen Wright's "Islandia" (which, incidentally, has its own detailed language) and I STILL didn't finish it... I think I have just 40 pages to go. I generally find fantasy novels that can act as doorstops to be daunting and time-consuming.
Tolkien sets LOTR in Europe in some pre-historic antediluvian mythical age, similar to the Hyborean Age of Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. In no way does he intend his readers to think the characters are really speaking English, but instead expects people to understand it's some dead language from out of the mists of pre-history.
I have here what in Mystery novels would be called the smoking gun. Yes, they speak English in Westeros. Hodor! https://www.vulture.com/2016/05/game-of-thrones-hodor-what-happened.html
Well the first episode was alright, though I didn't really expect anything major to happen anyway.
Not a lot happened this episode, but the preview for the second looked action packed. Also, that kid's scream was terrifying.
Lol. When I saw that kid climbing trees at the beginning of the episode, my reaction was, "Awh! He's so cute! ... He's totally going to die."
Just finished watching the first episode and... What the fuck? What the actual fuck? Jon and Danny flying around on a romantic dragon ride? It feels like I'm watching somebody's terrible fanfiction.
That said, I did enjoy when Cersai randomly turned into Bart Simpson ^_^
I watched the newest episode earlier and it seems it had done what it set out on what it had to do, the pieces are mostly set in motion with some more in episode 2, I also liked the callbacks to season 1 with the opening scene which shows a young boy watching as royalty visits Winterfell, and the scene in the crypt were two best friends discuss something which has potential to backfire in a big way. The comedy wasn't too bad either and was much needed as this is basically the calm before the storm, I just hope that they don't overdo it in the upcoming episodes and aren't afraid of making it dark as it needs to be, which seems likely if the scene at Last Hearth is any indication. This brings me to my first complaint the lighting was a major pain in the ass as I could barely see anything and had to adjust my brightness accordingly. Another complaint I would say is how unimportant they treated Jon and his ability to fly Rhaegal, in the fighting pits of Meeren is was seen as an important event which it was as no one has ridden a dragon in hundreds of years, but in this episode it was a minute of struggling to get on and that was that basically, then they went on their romantic ride. I should probably quit writing now...
Well that episode is over, should be getting to the fighting proper next episode.
Yeah, two episodes in a row of watching various people have five minute long conversations does make you think, "Fucking hell, somebody die already!"
I did like watching Brianne get knighted though. ^_^
Meh, I'm ready for Brianne to get killed in battle along with several others at this point. Lol.
If this is going the way it looks like its going, I feel like they did this backwards. Really they should have set it up so the Night King was the last enemy to take down rather than Cersei. If they kill the Night King first, it's sort of anti-climatic since he's obviously the greater threat.
It'll be like "Yay! The living managed to beat back the undead horde! Oh, and here's some stuff about taking care of Cersei afterwards."
Then again, its not over yet, so maybe that won't happen.
So long as Podrick's alright!
... I do wonder though, if they're going to be REALLY anti-climatic and just have Bronn kill Cersei, because he doesn't feel like killing Jamie and Tyrion.
Lol! Yeah, I said the exact same thing... Probably because Arya still looks like she's 12 years old.
I'm sure Arya's tasteful sex scene was the highlight of that episode for loli-lovers everywhere.
Sort of figured they were going to do that with her and Gendry though.
I thought the Hound and Brienne were going to get a talking scene together as well, but guess not.
No idea who will have the throne. I just don't want it to be Sansa, Cersei or any Lannister and I'm conflicted about it being Dany.
I feel like Jaimie dies (if he survives the battle), perhaps doing something to save Cersei and her baby. The whole "things we do for love" crap even though she wants him dead. Grey Worm will likely die based on what we've seen of him and Missandei in Ep 1 and 2. She is a possibility too I guess. They can't cure Jorah just to kill him. That would suck. Gilly or Sam is dead or both. Melisandre dies. Bronn may die. Maybe after refusing to kill Tyrion and Jaimie. I would hate if Bran died just because they killed all the other Stark boys. And Jon and Sansa are boring without Arya and Bran.
Jon or Dany might die. Likely Dany because Jon has already. I think the are too heavy handed with Dany. The whole "who said anything about a HIM?" and "It means prince or princess that was promised". They want us to believe she is the prophesied so bad, I think that means she definitely isn't. They do the same with Jon I guess too, but Jon doesn't go on and on about how special and different he is.
As long as Brienne, Arya, Tormund and the Hound don't die, I'll be OK. I kind of want Cersei to live, but as a prisoner under whoever is ruling. I want her to lose everything, but her life.
If Bran wargs into a dragon or a person (*ahem* The Night King *ahem*) and the Night King raises past characters from the crypt, I will be satisfied. I hope they reveal more info about the Night King, his ancestry and motivations. I want more raven flashbacks.
