Describing something as Fuck Off, as opposed to telling some to do so, is quite specific - I suspect it is an Irish/Scottish/Dudley sort of phrase

Not guilty.

I think this will end up sort of like Fullmetal Alchemist.Once the final book is done,we will get a more faithful adaptation and this will just be remembered as weird fanfiction.

It won't be a new adaptation - by that point they'll have the technology to recreate the original performers digitally and insert an infinite number of additional scenes / episodes.  It'll come in useful to pacify the population as the climate begins to break down in earnest, resource wars overwhelm the planet and Trump enters his eighth term as President.

Why is there still a Night's Watch?

Same reason there was a Night's Watch prior to the events of GoT - you need guards against wildling raids and it's somewhere to stick unwanted scions of Great Houses.


Why would there be wildling raids?  The Gift is theirs if they want it.

There are many factions of wildlings, not all of whom are going to meekly obey Jon Snow. Raids will happen again.

Don't forget all the Grumpkins and Snarks

How could we?  They've all come out in the open to comment on Season 8.

Arya: Young girl - brought up in privilege - suffered a terrible tragedy when young - exiled - obsessed with revenge - gains magical powers that make her virtually unkillable - shown to be ruthless in dealing with those who get in her way - often slightly isolated and comes across as cold to all but her closest inner circle - certain of her own righteousness.

Daenerys: Young girl - brought up in privilege - suffered a terrible tragedy when young - exiled - obsessed with revenge - gains magical powers that make her virtually unkillable - shown to be ruthless in dealing with those who get in her way - often slightly isolated and comes across as cold to all but her closest inner circle - certain of her own righteousness.

I'm not sure this narrative ends well for the peoples west of Westeros, that's all I'm saying.

It was a dagger. He gave his sword to the Unsullied.

I'm tremendously sorry, you are correct.

I like the idea that you have been watching for 70+ hours of TV thinking "when's this fecking song going to start?"

So what does everyone reckon?  All the articles I've read seem to think that there either will be a definite winner of the GoT or that the whole system will be overthrown.  I'm beginning to wonder if there will be an ambiguous ending - Dany loses Drogon and we end with her troops facing Winterfell's alliance. They start to move towards each other and we fade to black...

I am so dense. The conversation Varys has with the girl from the kitchen is because he’s trying to poison Dany. In a season that has (rightly) been criticised for lacking subtlety, that was rather splendid and ties right back to the Varys we met in Season One.

Yep, and that might come back to us in the season finale (that's why he took the rings off - they contained the poison). How appropriate would it be for Dany to die at the hands of an entirely unimportant character, in revenge for all the "unimportant" lives she snuffed out?

In the books Euron's horn totally works, I guess?

If King's Landing hadn't been hoarding Wildfire in those children's hospitals, the collateral damage would have been much lower, but you fire tactical long range arrows into sovereign territory like Cersi did and you will be met with a proportionate response - unless you dragon-hating leftists are going to seriously argue that Daenerys isn't entitled to defend herself.  It's hardly Daenerys' fault that so many people in King's Landing were brainwashed by Cersi into getting in the way of that dragon, but then they don't value life like we do and they see dying as an acceptable cost to making the only legitimate democracy in Westeros look bad.

Hahhahahahahahahahahhahaohgodsob
