    Red Baron perhaps learned his tactic from Dany . He always attacked with the sun behind his back.

    ^ Anybody catch the scene where Varys was talking to one of his little birds, the conversation seems to point out his attempt to poison Dany, through the girl (who was working in the kitchen)

    I find it funny how the Golden Company was bandied about as being no-nonsense battle-ready mercenaries who will fight to the death for whoever can afford them, and yet they did not last but a few minutes in a battle against the Northern armies. I guess that's how big an advantage having a dragon could be. But still... LOL!

    I miss scenes like this. They're as engaging as any CGI filled battle scenes and what made the earlier seasons soooo good.

    Mm...not that it would have mattered but I was surprised that the Lannister army did not have its own cavalry at hand, a standard for all the major Westerosi armies (Tyrell, Boltons, Starks , Baratheons, Knights of the Vale). Without a cavalry, how was the Golden Company going to stop the Dothrakis?
    Even without the dragon, the Golden company was a gonner from the very start. The Lannisters already knew what a Dothraki charge can do to Lannister infantry (Battle of the Goldroad). ,

    Might be wrong here but I believe majority of the Lannister army were killed when Dany ( along with the Dothraki army ) attacked. Jaime and Bronn escaped while the remaining survivors surrendered. Both the Tarlys were Dracarified. :LOL::LOL::LOL:

    They were sell-swords who just waited for the highest bidder, have never fought a real battle, and were more used to providing shock and awe before any battle. They may have nice uniforms, the best swords, spears and shields, maybe even elephants, but against an experienced, battle-hardened Northern Alliance (just how many have they been with? Astapor Bay, The Five Kings, The Bastards, Winterfell, etc.) they were no match. Even if there was a dragon up there, Harry Strickland's minions would've been toast to the ruthless Jon and Dany armies.

    ^Yeah, there were so many times that GOT taught us this lesson, starting from Ned's beheading:

    This show would simply never give us what we want. And even when it would give us what we want, it would never be in the exact way we want it.

    We have one more episode left to learn this lesson haha.

    Mm...for pure horror and audience impact, the Red Wedding episode is on top of the list. No one expected it. It was a brilliant plan hatched by Tywin Lannister. Decapitate the head, end the rebellion.

    We are all expecting Dany’s death (an assassination). How will the Unsullied and Dothraki react?Wala lang? They also have to kill Greyworm (Oh great....the token black guy gets killed).

    Anti-climactic death for Jamie and Cersei (supposedly). Anti-climactic death for the Clegane brothers.

    It would have been much more satisying had Cersei met a more deserving end at the end of a dragon's fiery snout or by Dany's hands.

    Dany's massacre is the least surprising, surprisingly. It has always been a war of attrition. In the end, Dany chose to be queen of the ashes. The ashes of King's Landing. Westeros is a big world. Just because you destroy imperial Manila, it doesn't mean the Philippines ceases to exist. Sure it changes things, but a capital is just that.

    Can't really blame her though. Perhaps it has always been her fate and of Targaryens before her to be unloved and betrayed. If so, she is just living out her destiny.

    We all knew GoT always sets us up for disappointment, so why are we all so surprised? Maybe Dany will end up killing Jon.

    Like most of you, I just want to know how it ends. And in that at least we won't be disappointed come next Sunday (Monday our time).

    “That was Emilia’s last shot on Game of Thrones.”

    And she wasn’t sitting on the Iron Throne nor was at King’s Landing. Maybe Winterfell. Following John at the Ice Wall, perhaps.

    Because love is stronger than fear.

    Mm.....better death for Cersei and Jaime: They made it down to the cavern, found an exit, row row row your boat.....until Dany spots them from above. Dany and dragon swoops down........hovers.....no words are exchanged.....Cersei and Jaime embracing each other...the look on the faces of Cersei, Jaime and Dany would have been priceless............then dragon eats them......alternative: both Jaime and Cersei are snatched by dragon......up, up and away....then dropped over KL. Slo mo...the terrified faces of Cersei and Jaime......priceless.

    Only problem is dragon is f.... retarded. Only knows one vocab: dracarys.

    ^ I wonder if Bronn will pull the couple out of the rubble. But then again, the two have already said their farewells to the show via social media

    That particular Red Wedding episode, The Rains of Castamere, still shocked that Michelle Fairley didn't even get an acting nomination.

    Here's my prediction for the finale:
    1. Arya will try to kill Dany, and at the very last second Jon Snow grabs Arya's head and squeezes her eyes into her skull to save Dani - audience gasps!
    2. Jon Snow stands over Arya's twitching bloody body and tells Dany: " You are my queen!" And Dany says: "Dracarys" and Jon Snow gets toasted by Drogon - audience gasps!
    3. Dany looks down at toasted jon snow and says "You know nothing, Jon Snow", then Dany turns to Drogon and says "Only you are truly loyal to me." And Drogon eats Dany! - audience gasps!
    4. The scene snaps over to Bran, who had warged into Drogon to make him eat Dany. Bran stands up from his wheelchair (audience gasps because the lazy bastard has been faking it through all these seasons making everyone carry him around and hold the doors for him! [Hodor!])
    5. Bran walks over to the iron throne and sits on it - audience gasps! (because nobody ever liked Bran, we all wanted the night king to get him)

    The only problem with this prediction is: wasn't the iron throne inside the red keep?

    Well, be damn on Dan Weiss and Dave Benioff for stirring the conspiracy pots for Season 8. It’s so convoluted right now all we want is for it to end. Finish.

    Rumor: Arya kills Dany by wearing Grey Worm’s face thereby unchaining the Unsullied from their pact with her. Damn r/freefolks!
