That is something I have enjoyed seeing as well @LadySkinsFan

 

the story bucks traditions in a lot of ways and that is one of them. Don't forget about Yara becoming leader of the iron islands as well. 

Not really much of a tradition anymore, women in powerful positions is the norm for TV.  As it should be.  That said they went too far trying to upgrade the female characters. 

 

Yara is better in the books where she is a self serving piece of **** that doesn't care about her brother.  It makes more sense for her to be that way, she's a slaving pirate after all and he is her rival.  The reason her father favors her is because she's her fathers daughter.  In the show though, the poor dear endured her cruel father and tried desperately to save her brother whom she loves.  Why?  Because TV writers love that cheeseball ****.

So my sister was in Rwanda doing some marketing and promotion work for a project sponsored by Women for Women International.  She sent me this, which she said Game of Thrones fans might appreciate...

 

 

Do they have a catch all term in the Kiryawandan language for "poor, stupid Sansa"?

Except Sansa seems to have developed some ovaries at the end of S6. She basically gives Littlefinger the finger when he reveals his audacious plan to capture the Iron Throne with Sansa by his side. That scene was priceless.  I'm looking forward to Littlefinger getting roasted by dragons.

Yara isn't on a throne yet as she and Theon took off, knowing that their uncle would kill them if they were around.

Technically, she is a rebel leader. Remember, she lost the Kingsmoot and stole the Ironborn Navy with Theon.

Why do you think it should be this way? I enjoy watching people who are worthy to lead or unworthy and fail, regardless of gender. 

 

But in regards to this season, I don't think the trend will be reversed so much as there will just be less women in power period. Cersei's clock is ticking.

Season 7 Production pics

 

The 2 that really got me werethe Torrmund and Brienne pic, because it's hysterical, and Jon in the crypts.  Seeing his mother perhaps?  Or his "father?"

That reminds me, what ever happened to Ned's body? Wasn't that something Tyrion advised returning to Winterfell in season 2 I think? May be confusing with the books though. 

 

I feel like there is something significant going on in the tombs of Winterfell

I cant remember either. I feel like I'm both books and show, Tyrion(or maybe someone else) ordered Ned's remains to be sent back to winterfell. I also feel like Sansa and Littlefinger originally went into the crypts to visit Ned(funny how she still doesn't know his role in that), and ended up speaking about Lyanna.

From the show, last thing I remember, is season 2, Littlefinger returning them to Catelyn Stark in the Stormlands right as Stannis and Renly were about to fight.  Catelyn presumably took them north, but she dies at the Twins.  The books don't mention much about his bones either after the second book and which is a big source of fan speculation.

 

Its possibly she entrusted the bones to someone else to take to Winterfell.  As the North was in the control of the Iron Islanders, and then the Boltons, who would not want any reminders of who once ruled, getting the bones to Winterfell would have been problematic.

Good stuff thanks for the refresh. Didn't one of the boys (Rickon I think ) say they saw Ned in the tombs? 

 

I think Jon might have a vision down there or have something revealed thru Lyanna's crypt

I feel like Ned placed evidence that Jon is a Targaryen within Lyanna's tomb. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if this was down there as well...
