    However, after reading your take, I'm definitely leaning toward Jaime.

Hence all the flashbacks and visions about that last season! Cersei will choose to burn King's Landing by detonating the rest of the secret wildfire caches rather than surrender and be taken alive, and even though Jaime is warped by his incestuous passion, he is still basically a good person who will not allow an innocent population to be so spitefully murdered! So he will become the "Queenslayer" (per force of his conscience), and then kill himself afterwards.

    I would bet money that this is how it plays out. It's too perfectly tragic and poetic to resist.
    I had to look it up. On the show Maggy doesn't mention the "Valonqar". This might be a change here that will be different in the books. Since it means "little brother" in Valyrian, I think it'll be Tyrion in the books and likely Jamie in the show. The writers probably changed it here to make way for Jamie. GRRM has so many prophecies, and he has mentioned that some writers can take their own prophecies too literally and be too predictable, but I believe this is one he directly follows through on. In the books Tyrion will be the Queenslayer. Of course on the show it could be Jamie or it could also be at the hands of Daenerys as well. My only concern with this otherwise solid theory is if Daenerys goes mad. Then we're going to get two mad queens and two possible betrayals. Eh, I dunno if he wants to do that twice.

    I also believe Cersei isn't going to last that long. It's clear Daenerys will be the "younger and more beautiful" one that takes her crown, fulfilling another Mag prophecy. The story will shift towards the White Walkers and The Great Other soon.

    There is quite a bit of story to tell.

    Ohh that's a good one. Maybe enough to equip a small army that'll cut through the walkers like a knife through butter. It's hard to tell what is gonna happen with Jorah. From some of the theories of him being an out of nowhere candidate of being "the prince that was promised" to finding those weapons, I think he's going to have a major impact on the ending.

    If Daenerys goes mad I can see him playing a major role as well.

    I think that's very interesting. Why do we have two priestesses saying two different TPTWP/AAR? (Azar Ahai reborn). Are there gonna be 3 dragon riders?

    I think you were right AZ Snake Fan, the writers have a lot of dead weight to shed. They also knew that they only needed 14 episodes to finish the story so we'll see what they have planned

When was Ned ever going to show his kids that they too have tombs? Especially when he isn't going to outlive them? Such a plan requires Ned to remain alive deep into old age, which is unrealistic in such a dangerous world.

    Regardless of how that could work out, I don't really care for this theory one bit and I really hope they don't do it, because what then is the point of Bran's visions about this stuff if Jon will learn the truth some other way? There's an immense anticipation behind every reunion between the long-sundered Stark family members, but the suspense of Bran's meeting up with Jon to reveal such a monumental truth ramps that anticipation up to incredible levels and that would be utterly destroyed by this tomb-tells-all theory. SMH Why would the producers choose to do away with or diminish a device more gripping?
    Yeah, I don't think he'll find out on his own. There could be physical evidence that helps confirm what they have been saying but it'll be Bran that initially guides him.

    I LOL'd at the idea of a huge amount of evidence and Robert hanging around in the crypts. That would be a funny disaster

    Actually part of Dany's vision in the House of the Undying was her brother Rhaegar saying "the dragon has three heads.
    That's it.

    The Targ House sigil is a 3 headed dragon.
    Aegon Targaryen and his 2 sisters took Westoros riding dragons.
    Dany has 3 dragons.

    So, many are assuming that Dany's dragons will have 3 riders.
    But all Rhaegar said in Dany's vision was that "the dragon has 3 heads".

    Maybe some are making too much out of Rhaegar's statement.
    At this point, the writers are going to want to keep it simple.

    I personally just can't see Jon cozy up to a dragon.

    We know that Dany is an adept natural riding Drogon but the other 2 have yet to be tamed or ridden.
    We know that Tyrion has some kind of vibe going on with those 2 he released.

    We've already discussed in depth the similarities of Jon, Dany and Tyrion.
    They all are the third child, their fathers are all dead and their mothers all died in childbirth etc.
    Jon and Dany have Targ blood. Tyrion could be the Mad King's son, but it's a weak theory.

    So, who knows ?
    Could be 3 riders.
    Bran could warg.
    Or Dany just keeps riding Drogon while Rhaegal and Viserion follow and lay waste.
    This is going to be entirely up to the writers at this point unless GRRM stipulated differently.

    Well we had two sadistic psychopaths in Ramsay and Joffrey, why not two "Mad Queens"? The story revels in corrupt characters. With Dany, I think we are seeing a disturbing escalation in her natural Targaryen ruthless tendencies. Can Tyrion temper those? There may be an ultimate test coming for her, where she will need to refrain from anger and revenge and be just and fair or she will spiral down.

    I think that Cersei is technically the eldest child (though only by minutes), and many believe Jaime will be the Valonqar in the books... if GRRM ever finishes the series before he dies! Hopefully he makes it to 2024!

    Thanks, just adding up many disparate parts. I posted a gif of Quaithe and her dialogue last year here:

    http://forums.denverbroncos.com/show...51#post5438851

    Jorah doubtlessly recalls that dialogue and the protective wards that she had inscribed on that sailor so he will likely seek her out for help. And I think he returns to Valyria, either to search for a special cure, or because he is captured and his disease is discovered so he gets dumped there just like the other exiled stonemen. And Sam and Jon already noted that there aren't enough Valyrian steel swords to stop the tide of Walkers so... where might more be found?

    He'll need the sap from some special plant that only grows in Valyria to rub on his arm, and having found that, the stonemen will be after him, so he'll flee deep into the ruins. The floor of some ancient hall will crumble during an earthquake and he'll fall into a hidden vault full of weapons! There he will don a nice Valyrian steel helm and suit of armor to fully protect his body from touch and then hack his way out! Next he'll convince a merchant ship to go back and collect the weapons to sell for a fortune to Dany, but that can be skipped and he just shows up in Westeros as they are fighting and losing to the Walkers!

    I think it can all be done in several segments amounting to maybe 30 minutes?

    Thanks AZ. It's been a few years, hope all is well.

    With GRRM, any and everything can be put into play. There is so much out there, we're going to over-analyze. That is what we do.

    When the Three-eyed raven told Bran that "he'll never walk, but fly", he could have been talking about warging with a dragon. Or he could just have been talking about becoming the Three-eyed raven himself. Should be interesting. That scene where Tyrion released the two dragons could come into play as you've mentioned.

    Oh no, I wasn't entirely ruling it out. And I would have to agree, there has been similar character traits spread across different characters all through out this vast world.

    It's funny, I was re-watching season 2 and I came across Dany's vision in the House of the Undying. The first segment showed snow falling in the throne room (a lot of people saw that as Jon Snow being the true or future king of Westeros). The next segment showed Dany traveling north of the wall through the snow and being reunited with Khal-Drogo. It could have been just a meaningless vision, but when paired with the first segment it makes me wonder about the entire sequence there. I think she could very well reunite with Khal-Drogo in the end giving the ending that George RR Martin had mentioned that would be "bittersweet".

    If we end up with two mad queens then so be it. Though Jamie turning on Cersei could definitely play out much differently than Dany's (possible) fall. As long as the story is great then that's all we care about.

    I also just noticed the Quaithe's dialogue. It took a re-watch for me to catch it though. Good catch and good theory. They can definitely make that sequence in 3-4 segments as you described.

GoT likes to kill characters, bringing old ones back for a quick death (like Osha and Rickon) and Gendry is verrry expendable IMO. The bastard son of the usurper to the Targaryen regime has no place in an endgame which features Daenerys Targaryen. He's as good as dead!
    I wanted to revisit this, since you had responded to me. My wife and I are rewatching the entire series and last night we watched the episode in Season 3 where the brotherhood picks up Gendry.

    My co-worker and I were discussing how in the books, foreshadowing is MASSIVE within Martin's writing/story telling style. The Red woman tells Gendry:
    "You are more than they can ever be. They are just foot soldiers in a great war. You will make kings rise and fall."

    Gendry definitely will have a role to play and she specifically says "Kings," so he will definitely be responsible for more than 1. I'd say this is proof that he won't only come back, but will have a MASSIVE role to play in the storyline.

    Mel said that to him, but it was clearly an allusion to her blood magic which required his King's Blood. So she drew it from him using several leeches and then she had Stannis throw them into the fire one-by-one, naming the enemies he wished to fall -other kings in Westeros: Joffrey, Robb Stark, and Balon Greyjoy.

    The first official images from Game of Thrones season 7

    These aren't terribly spoilerish and comprise mainly of character shots in some new costumes --as usual with prior releases as well.

    Did anyone read about the alleged Season 7 full script leak? I really hope that's a fake.

    The Star Wars leak I read for The Force Awakens was. It wouldn't surprise me if it's legit. A lot of it makes sense, there's only one real big thing I disliked in the leak (a shocking death).

    While I love my theory about Jorah finding Valyrian Steel weapons in Valyria, I don't think it's gonna happen.

    Legend says that Valyrian Steel was forged with dragonfire. They have dragons, they just need this secret which Sam can find in an old book. I think that's been brought up before -was that your idea AZ? Sam's arc has to be important to the main story otherwise it's just an irrelevant distraction, and this may be why he's really in Oldtowne. Additionally, it's not an accidental coincidence that Stannis told Sam that there are ample amounts of dragonglass on Dragonstone -where Dany seems to be headed! So I think they'll have plenty of weapons for dealing with White Walkers once Sam and Jon convene a war council with Team Dany.

    Game of Thrones forever: HBO developing 4 different spinoffs

    James Hibberd@JamesHibberd

    Posted on May 4, 2017 at 3:00pm EDT

    HBO is doubling down — no, quadrupling down — on its epic quest to replace Game of Thrones.

    The pay TV network is determined to find a way to continue the most popular series in the company’s history and has taken the highly unusual step of developing four different ideas from different writers. The move represents a potentially massive expansion of the popular fantasy universe created by author George R.R. Martin. If greenlit, the eventual show or shows would also mark the first time HBO has ever made a follow-up series to one of its hits.

    Most of the assigned writers have experience writing major theatrical films, and Martin is personally involved in two of the projects. The show ideas are from Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Fox’s Minority Report); Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class) along with Martin; Brian Helgeland (A Knight’s Tale, L.A. Confidential); and Carly Wray (Mad Men) with Martin.

    HBO isn’t revealing any story details at this time other than that the shows “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.”

    Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have previously said they do not plan to be actively involved in any follow-up projects, but it turns out they will be attached to the new shows as executive producers. “Weiss and Benioff continue to work on finishing up the seventh season and are already in the midst of writing and preparing for the eighth and final season,” HBO said in a statement. “We have kept them up to date on our plans and they will be attached, along with George R. R. Martin, as executive producers on all projects. We will support them as they take a much-deserved break from writing about Westeros once the final season is complete.”

    The prequel or spinoff development battle royale is a bit like how Disney handles their Marvel and Star Wars brands rather than how a TV network tends to deal with a retiring series (Thrones is expected to conclude with its eighth-and-final season next year.) But GoT is no ordinary show — it’s an international blockbuster that delivers major revenue for HBO via subscriptions (last season averaged 23.3 million viewers in the U.S. alone), home video and merchandise licensing. Plus, there’s all those Emmys to consider (GoT set records for the most Emmys ever won in the prime-time ceremony).

    How much of HBO’s Thrones development slate will actually end up on the screen is unknown. It’s possible one or more titles could be produced as a miniseries instead of a regular series. We’re told a variety of different combinations and options are on the table depending on how the scripts look upon completion. But the end goal is to find at least one title that can successfully carry the flame of the GoT franchise. “There is no set timetable for these projects,” HBO said. “We’ll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in.”
