With stuff like that in her genetics, even if she becomes Queen, she may not be able to establish a new Targaryen dynasty. :shock:

Congrats on sweeping a category on last night's Jeopardy show.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

She can't have children at the moment anyway, her womb was turned to nothing when she did the blood magic to try to save Khal Drogo (if you opt to interpret it that way).

My only real hope for this season is to not be disappointed and for someone to kill Sansa. And for Davos to live. He is my favorite.

IMHO, sooner or later, John Snow is going to have to send someone south to meet Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of Dragons...and the present occupant of a huge pile of White Walker-killin' dragonglass.
I vote for Davos. He can be the plain-spoken but honorable bridge that brings the the North and the Targaryan together. The real hero...
...although I worry that he will be one of the characters we end up losing for the dramatic and emotional bang. No happy, healthy retirement for Ser Davos, because the writer(s) are trying to create a powerful hunk of entertainment for us.

If that happened I wouldn't be able to handle it.

Also Jorah will have to go back to Dragonstone, right? Since dragonglass can cure grayscale? Some poor princess lived there and had hers stopped.

All I care about is Dolorous Edd. :) I'll eat my hat if he ever become Lord Commander in the books, but I don't see how he will survive things on the show!

Also, hi all, I have not been on here in ages!!!! 8-) 8-)

Poor Princess Shireen? :cry:
Yes, she had her greyscale stopped, 'stopped' being the operative word here. She wasn't cured and still had the rough scales on her face, even after her father's (curse him) efforts to find a cure.
But from what I remember, he never talked about using the dragonglass at the castle as part of her treatment. I think that would have come up. Speculation I've read suggests that her incidental exposure to the dragonglass particles that would have surrounded her may have helped stop her disease.
Maybe it can cure Jorah, but if it doesn't do more than stop the progression of the disease, the make-up/prosthetics department are going to have their hands full turning Iain Glen into someone who has gone into the later stages of greyscale. :shock:

JTV is literally one of my all time favorite shows! It's so, so, SO good. Handles a lot of fabulous issues with grace and charm, has an awesome cast, and is just so much fun.

Plus, I could look at Rafael literally all day long. Hoo boy.
HOLD. THE. PHONE.

Rafael was in Everwood????? How'd I never make that connection? I watched all of Everwood and I cannot for the life of me remember his character.

I was freaking out basically the whole time.

Pretty sure the last time more than two Starks were in the same place was when Ned was getting his head chopped off...whew. I love that this show is coming to a conclusion, because it's so much more fun this way.

I read the spoiler (did not watch) but it was better on TV than it was in my mind. I prefer my endings ruined.

After the first two episodes dragged it's really picked up. I was pretty much Bran's biggest advocate forever but now he's just annoying. He could have elaborated on how the dagger was meant to kill him. :roll:

My only complaint is that things feel a little rushed and almost a little Hollywood-ish at parts. Drogon was awesome yesterday but am I really supposed to think Jamie just stands around and doesn't get hurt as the field goes up in flames?

My remaining are for Arya to kill Littlefinger and then use his face to make a deal with Cersei then kill her, Sansa to just go away and Jon Snow to ride a dragon. Sigh. I expect too much.

I've loved this whole season, but mostly I just want my Starks together. So. I'm doing alright, lol.

I am aggressively pro-Sansa, but if she doesn't slaughter Littlefinger (whose face sends me into a flying rage), your version with Arya using his face to kill Cersei is absolutely delicious.

With their hard-won and varied strengths, the three Stark siblings are quite a fearsome trio, aren't they? :twisted:

There have been quite a few scenes this season that hark back to something that was said or done in earlier seasons. The show (and maybe the books, but I haven't read them) seems to like to bring things full circle with its characters, so I have this idea that Jaime's and Cersei's fates may be tied to one of the first...and most shocking...scenes from the first episode.
When young Bran sees Cersei and Jaime having sex, Jaime pushes Bran off the ledge, a terrible act done for the love of his sister.
Then, Cersei's and Jaime's last child, Tommen, threw himself to his death from a high window after his mother's reckless, ruthless destruction of the High Sept.
It would be a kind of justice-served fate for these two if Jaime, having come to the despairing realization that his lover is lost in world-destroying madness, wraps his arms around her lovingly...and then throws them both through that same high window.

Was I the only one who thought Jon made up the cave drawings to convince Dany to fight for him? They looked like amateur chalk art.
