As do I. He wilder the theories the better. I do think that there has defiantly been a change in shock value since they no longer have the book to follow- afeared now of fan uproar

Great show and last night was excellent. The battle scenes were reminiscent of the battle scenes in Braveheart I thought. Snow definitely showing that he is a great rally leader but his softness is a weakness, Sansa definitely harder and clearly is getting into bed in more ways than one with Little Finger. Bolton was a great character and your man acted his ass off with him. Also the likelihood of a lesbian coupling between the Mother of Dragons and the Iron Island lass is inevitable. Really looking forward to the final show next week!!

On a side note, in a recent house clearance I found some old books from my teenage years, I came across a first edition hardback of the first book. It's in mint condition and worth between 300 and 500. I gonna see if I can pick the other 3 initial first editions as a complete set is worth up to 5k!!!

Hopefully the other half of the Tower of Joy scene is this week and were finally get confirmation of who Jon's parents are and perhaps what it might mean for the future.

Also think Cersei, Tommen or both are doomed as Cersei inevitably f**ks up her wildfire plan.

If anyone of you are podcasters I'd highly recommend Bald move. They do three podcasts a week on GoT (as well as lots of other tv series). They do an instant take (20-30mins) directly after the show airs and on Tuesday evenings they release a breakdown of the episode that doesn't contain book spoilers. On Friday they have a spoiler edition that contains theories based on GRRM's source material. An excellent listen if you've time to tune in.

Personally, Battle of the b**tards was my favourite episode of the lot. The Red Wedding didn't hit me as hard as I'm a book reader so knew it was coming. I have thoroughly enjoyed this season apart from the ending of Arya's story in Bravos. No way does she take those gut shots and carry on as she does.

My theory are that Cersei will lose her trial and unleash the wildfire to destroy Baelors Sept. She will take everyone she can, including Tommen (don't forget she would have taken her own kids lives at the end of the battle of Blackwater before Tywin showed up).

Varys will be in Dorne negotiating a safe landing spot for Danerys (Dorne are still loyal to Targareyns). Kings Landing will be bucked due to Cersei and it'll be a case of all paths leading to the north for an epic battle with the WWs.

Three dragons to be mounted by three Targareyens: Danerys, John and Tyrion.

Sansa cost her brother his life. I guess Bran is the only remaining Stark male at this stage?

Sansa knew the shit, Rickon was dead as soon as the 'pink letter' arrived at Castle Black. John was responsible for a shitload of deaths with his suicide mission causing all their pre battle plans to be tossed out the window.

I preferred GoTs earlier series which left you WTF just happened. Since Jon Snow came back things take a more predictable turn.  Ramsey was always going to be a mere sideshow villain  and Sansa  & Jon Snow were always going to win that battle.  Most predictable of all was Ramsey being fed to his own dogs after losing Winterfell.  Series 6 a huge disappointment thus far.   

Hopefully when it ends eventually Denarys isn't Queen of the 7 kingdoms and the wildlings to defeat the Whitewalkers!  That would be utter boke!

I don't think there will be seven kingdoms to rule at the end of it.

Really now, the direction the show has to go is clear. It's ice vs fire, with the fire meaning dragons. That means they have to engineer Dany forgetting about conquest to head north and similarly figure out plot devices to get the other two dragons mounted. Jon looks to be an obvious one as suggested above and perhaps Tyrion, although the evidence is less convincing.

All the guff and nonsense happening in King's Landing and whatever Euron tries to do are just distractions from the main plot.

I agree that the series has gone downhill and was particularly annoyed about how badly written Arya's entire time in Braavos was, especially her escape, which made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

First book was published in 1996. Who are you trying to kid with this "teenager" lark?!

I listen to A Cast Of Kings as a GOT podcast.

Rikon should have Zig Zagged everyone knows when you having arrows shot at you to do that.

Jon Snow is thick as shit solo charging the Boltons

Wun Wun should have been armored up and given a big tree trunk or something he'd have defeated the Boltons near on his own.

I always thought the Fire and Ice dimension was becuase Jon Sno was both Fire and Ice, stark and Targaryen.

There is a lot of evidence to suggest that the third dragon rider will be Tyrion as he is apparently of Targaryen blood.

Brienne will turn out to be The Princess That Was Promised.

Anyone read Dunk and Egg? She is obvious a descendant of Dunk.

Plenty to suggest otherwise as well. Jon and Dany are certs, the third one is debatable.
