    I think the disconnect we have is that you are looking for the "happy Jon" ending. Nothing about Jon's character suggests he gets a happy ending. He is every bit Ned's "son" even if not by birth.

    The Night. They are called the Night's Watch. Lots of ice cube trays. They'll turn to fundraisers, like a bake sale. Hot Pie is apparently available. No, he shapeshifts into a dragon and flies off to "console" Drogon. Then gets Drogon killed because seriously Jon is a kiss of death when it comes to relationships. Because he draws the line with sleeping with his aunt. Sleeping with his sister would signal a character flaw. Plus see above, Sansa would probably be like "Thanks, no thanks." Peter, Paul and Mary No, she's the new Moana. Expect to see her get her own musical number and become a Disney Princess. They left with the new Lord of Dorne, a land where plot lines go to die Once they discovered charred bodies make pretty good bricks, things went quicker. I present to you Trump. Draw your own comparisons. Isn't a personality required to wink?

    I think you're misinterpreting Jon's future. He was sentenced to the Night's Watch, not sentenced be a wildling. I doubt Jon's honor would allow him to buck that. As I saw it, him going north of the wall was just as an escort to return the wildlings to their home. The Night's Watch routinely patrolled north of the wall. I don't think Jon had any intention of remaining there; he was going to serve the Night's Watch as he was expected to. That's why he told Arya she could visit him at Castle Black, because that was where he intended to be. Just my opinion.

    What are you going to do when Jamie and Cersei crawl out from under a trash dumpster next episode?

    He's served his purpose. - Make viewers uncomfortable watching him hook up with a young actress we've grown up with for the past ten years, but still looks like she's a minor. - Make a dragonglass arsenal to defeat the WW army in one episode, causing forum riots - Create a super secret weapon for his bae, who proceeds to resort to a different weapon to kill the NK I mean, he's right there behind Jon Snow...

    I'm going to make a prediction. Dany orders Jon Snow killed. Jon willingly submits. Gray Worm comes up and acts like he's about to kill Jon then boom kills Dany. As Dany dies, Grey Worm pulls off his face and it's Hot Pie. Scratch that, I mean Arya. Hot Pie gets Highgarden.

    What I'm saying is bodies decay over time, basically decomposing to ashes.

    See, I'd push back on this a bit, based on the idea that only the Stark family are buried there (meaning not every dead Winterfellian). Based on that, there should only be about maybe 3 corpses?, that hadn't completely decayed beyond "raise-ability"

    You cannot have Jon Snow's development without the WWs. You cannot have Dany and Jon's alliance without WWs. King's Landing likely has no chance against all 3 dragons, full strength Dothraki and Unsullied. Bran never finds out about Jon Snow's heritage without WW storyline. Jon never meets Sam, who apparently is the narrator of this entire thing from most theories, without WW storyline. I could go on and on. I mean the threat and activity of the WWs were so critical to much of the story even if it wasn't the central theme of the story and I have enough backstory to satisfy me. Think of the WWs as a plague. We know how the plague started and the threat it poses. We don't need to know much more than that for it to serve it's purpose. Yeah I thought there was that one intro scene of young Cersei hearing the prophecy right? Too long ago to remember all the details.

    I see a lot of contradictions here. You're fine with things left to the imagination then complain that things were left to the imagination. You say the NK is inconsequential and yet their existence explains the entire shaping process of Jon Snow, arguably the most important role in the story. They explain why he and Dany meet and join forces, they explain why Jamie is no longer with Cersei, they explain why Dany no longer has a Dothraki horde, and now may be down to 1 or 2 dragons. How are they inconsequential?

    I'm pretty sure they covered why they were after Bran and why they were raiding the south. It's their whole purpose. Whether it's worth the risk is a judgement call, just as whether Cersei should risk blowing up the Sept, or Dany should risk fighting for the Throne, they apparently felt it was worth it to get what they wanted. I've already touched on the overconfidence part. If I was the NK and I know that I am our only weakness, I stay as far away as possible until the war is won. But again overconfidence can kill you. History has thousands of examples of overconfidence changing the outcome so not sure why it's portrayal here is so implausible. As for the entire backstory, there is value in leaving some things to viewers imaginations. It appears that unless you know every single fact in one of the largest fantasy worlds means that they failed. Even Tolkien didn't explain everything. Many viewers don't need to be spoonfed every single aspect. It allows room for fan theory. It's like some people who have images in their mind of what their favorite character may look like are sometimes disappointed when a movie is made that fills that role with someone that doesn't match that imagined image.

    This goes back to the way the fight was going. The fight was never in doubt, so they never needed to engage. Only reason NK was more active was because the dragon was needed to fight the other 2. Jon and Dany were originally sitting out too until they were like, uh we need to do something.

    I agree with dragon part, but not sure about the complete disappearance of magic. Bran's abilities I would classify as magic, and I'd be hard pressed to believe the 3 eyed raven loses their power after spending so much time protecting it from the WW. As for Tyrion, I don't think he ends up a Targaryen. Would cheapen it if we start finding out everyone's one. I more think Tyrion either survives and ends up with Sansa or dies to save her.

    Yeah but I thought he picked it up after that, but when they had that shot of him with his arms spread blocking the hallway I knew for sure that sword didn't accompany him into the room with Melisandre. Could be wrong about him grabbing the sword post-throw though.

    It was obviously a primal kai, allowing her to achieve superhuman distance and height with the jump. I learned that by watching youtube videos of people trying to break boards over their heads so I'm sure it's a thing.
