      Dany will try and kill Jon. One of the sisters will kill Dany. Jamie kills Cersei. The Iron guy banging Cersei will kill Sansa. Ayra will kill him then die by The Mountain. Tyrion will die just because midgets can't live that long. The guy with no balls will sit on the Iron Throne and his little children will appear and credits roll. THE END... 🤣🤣🤣

    I see. So the Starks were taught to remember the Battle against the Night King and his army, and the other houses were not... interesting... The Starks are all about tradition and remembering their history Not that tradition is something to be followed blindly

    I LOVE you channel. You put so much work into these videos you deserve the success. So much more of the series makes sense watching these videos, especially toward the end of season 8 with a lot of haters complaining about how things are going, when it all really makes sense when you know more about the mythology and history, rather than just watching the show each week. Thanks

    All these awesome theories but in 'reality' they are not revealing any deep secrets, no real revelations, no "wtf's". . they are just killin' off mofo's, wrapping shit up, leaving no loose ends and calling it done! Even tho as of this post, it isn't quite the end, so far, these endings are leaving me as hollow as they seem to be written. . That said, everything still looks spectacular. . . But if you came for the story, you are leaving with riddles that will never ultimately be answered. . What did Bran really do? I mean, really?? All that for what. . warging into ravens. And now apparently after 8 or however many years its been, the Targerian gal is now going crazy like daddy?? Kinda sudden, no?

    man now i know why people were a bit mad about how the night king died cos it did seem like he was going to tell bran something... like his death seemed too easy. if he wanted to kill the stark's he would've crushed arya's throat the moment he caught her but didn't. i'm really convinced now that stark's can control white walkers somehow

    We usually watch this twice the first night a new episode is played. Not this time with this shit, the writers need to be put down. Yup, take them to the vet and put them down, I found one for $ 350.00. Someone has to pay for the shit we just watched! First, Terion lost his intellect, wit, honor......he isn't even the same character any longer. The writers have neutered him, he should sue. Jamie should have stayed with Brie Anne, Bran weeks ago should have signaled Dragons and 50 should have shown up and torched everyone we hate. This was the worst game ever. Thank you writers for messing up 10 years of character building and our time. Its official we are mounting up and coming for the writers and we have dragons! Dr. Tamara worley

    This video now seems an ancient relic from an age of foolish hopefulness. The things we imagined, the mysteries we pondered... I wish I could go hack to that innocence, when we looked to forward to the final season and what answers it would bring. I wish I never found out what a cruel joke it would turn out to be.

    I'm surprised that in this video you don't talk about the fact that Jon is the product of Fire (Rhaegar) and Ice (Lyanna). You mention how the two houses are so juxtaposed and how the series is one of internal conflict but fail to wrap that all up in the perfect bow that is Jon. No doubt, I hope we can see an ending that doesn't rush to end itself as fast as the show seems to be so we can see these internal struggles played out to the max.

    this would have been so much better, instead they disappoint us with a stupid black night fight, where we can't see a thing and just magically pop Arya in the air and with just a single stab al those other strong blue eyed generals of his pop like popcorn. I will wait for the books the series disappointed me. They just tossed al lore out of the window for what?

    the funny thing about all this trying to figure out the secrets of GOT is no one seems to remember this is a made up story in one mans head. There's no historical facts in game of thrones. Its complete fantasy.. There's no truth to fact check, or ponder... I wish everyone would just stop and enjoy the show..

    my predictions: - Golden Company switches sides - Cleganebowl, the Mountain is killed by The Hound with help from Greyworm but Greyworm dies and the Hound is mortally wounded. - Arya mercy kills The Hound on his request "you know where the heart is". I hope she kisses his cheek or forehead. Needs a little love to make it easier. - Cersei has a Mad King moment and tells Qyburn to "Burn them all" with wildfire. - Jaime strangles Cersei with his prosthetic hand, Maggy the Frog Prophecy fulfilled - Jamie dies by Euron, or Arya, but not Bronn - Euron retreats to the Iron Islands - Bronn gets poison cure from Qyburn, rescues Ellaria and Tyene Sand from the dungeon. - Arya kills Qyburn - Jamie dies in Brienne's arms (it's a Ygritte and Jon Snow type moment) - Fight over, Dany swoops down to take the throne, Golden Company says no, Tyrion is a legitimized bastard (thanks to Varys) - Tyrion Blackfyre ruler of the six kingdoms. PLOT TWIST - Dany also has a Mad King moment and says I'll "burn them all" - Jon (protector of the realms of men) Snow kills Dany, withdrawns sword Lightbringer end of S8E5 Beginning of S8E6 - Euron arrives at the Iron Islands, his sister Yara surprises/kills him, legitimizing her seat on House Greyjoy and ruler of the Iron Islands. (They kill siblings when they take power.) - Sansa Blackfyre Queen to Tyrion, no more divided loyalties to keep them apart. - Brienne of Tarth, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, fills out Jaime's log entry of previous Lord Commanders - Grand Maester Samwell of King's Landing, supports Gilly but can't marry because of....rules - Arya Stark Queen in the North, and the north remains independent, Arya will replay Lyanna's storyline as the game sets up again. - Gendry Baratheon, will replay Robert's storyline as the game sets up again. - Bronn and Tyene Sand want to marry making him a Prince. She said: "You want a good girl, but need a bad Pu**y." (bites ear). yea, that sister. - Bronn tells Tyrion he's through with the Lannisters, but with no Lannisters left Tyrion offers Bronn House Lannister to come back. - Bran sees the greenseer Night King "the great other" (not a white walker), warns Jon - Bran may live beneath the Weirwood at Winterfell. Will be see those blocked passages? do they lead under the weirwood? - Jon with his red flaming sword goes north to find the real Night King. Azor Ahai prophecy fulfilled - Tormund goes with Jon Some fucking tard takes a screenshot of Jaime dying in Brienne's arms as she is crying and posts it with the text "NO, don't leave me with Tormund". haha

    Okaaaaay... How's about this: Everybody wants Jon to take the Iron Throne. He reeeally doesn't want to take it because he's already bent the knee to Daenerys; you know: honor and all that. To underscore that he truly doesn't want the throne, he decides to go "North of the Wall" (He had an invitation in episode 4, maybe he'll decide to accept!). Daenerys says, "To hell with this, if you're going, I'm going" and they both ride off in the sunset on the neck of a dragon. Who takes the Iron Throne? Why, Varys, of course! His Hand? ...We don't need no stinkin' Hands 'round here! ...unless you're not doin' nothin', Tyrion... Sansa? Well... There's always got to be a Stark at Winterfell. Bran? He's gonna go north and live in a Tree for a few thousand years. Arya? The Hound? ...Well, there's still a couple names left on Arya's list!! Tyrion? Don't know, but I wager he'll be shopping a whorehouse-or-two for a wife (It's a habit with him)! Me? I'm canceling my HBO subscription. ...Been Fun, but we're Done!

    11:15 he predicts that the story won't end with a traditional battle of Jon vs the Night King. Was totally right if you watch s8e3. I know there are a bunch of people bitching about Arya, but I loved it. I hate watching shows that I can predict what will happen. That came out of left field and it was amazing. Honestly it was probably exactly how GRRM would have done it. People seem to forget GRRM told the show runners the endings for the most important characters and big events he had planned so people shouldn't be so quick to blame HBO or D&D.

      I would have been down for the left field stab by Arya if only we had a little more back story about the white walkers, and actually got to see them do stuff other than sitting on horses and looking ominously at people. I also don't like the fact that all the main characters were in danger SEVERAL times just to be saved last minute. That's NOT how GRRM would have done it. That's just cheap suspense and after a while you get tired of it and you end up not getting scared when an important character is surrounded by enemies.

    The wonderful thing about GOT is that is inspires so many theories and breeds debate. Many however are, well, a bit mundane. This however is just wonderful. I was thoroughly entertained throughout this fantastic little video.
