    They were desperately trying to wedge in some bonding between them with the dragon flying scene because, as said, zero chemistry between them.

    When you compare it to the Ygritte story line I'd agree. To be fair I never really see the need for long romance stories, or sex scenes. Find it all a bit dull.

    Agree Daenerys and Khal was more convincing.

    But it was also to demonstrate that Jon is a Targaerian: only Targaerians can ride dragons. Or at least, only a true Targaerion can ride a dragon at first attempt. It was a clumsy cringey scene but it deftly gave us two things: the dragons accept Jon, and Daenerys trusts him as her consort. So it’s a set up for him usurping her rule.

    You know the odd thing is, when the umber kid was hanging dead on the wall, the first thing that sprung to my mind was that the severed arms symbol looked like the tagaren banner. :confused:

    The White Walker spiral is definitely a spiral, but I can see that the many headed dragon banmer of the Targaerians looks a a bit spirally.

    Are we to suppose there’s a link...?

    Possibla possibla. Nighty night king may well be a tagarian rather than former nights watch commander as the rumour says he is....

    And he’s got the zombie dragon....

    I might claim the throne. Haven't made up my mind yet. But yeah, now the thread titles been changed, I'll probably keep my mouth shut until the seasons over.

    Night King spiral has 8 arms.
    Targaryn 3 headed dragon resembles a spiral at a stretch but it would have 9 arms if shown as such.

    Was the Night King the human that Bran saw turned into a Walker by the elves?

    I believe I heard on a podcast they're both played by the same actor.

    That's what I believe I heard.

    Fan theory, but so plausible I thought spoiler tags were in order,

    Bran is The Night King, some point soon he's gonna try and warg into the past, like he did with Hodor, to prevent The Night King's creation. And it'll go tits up, he'll become trapped in The Night King's body [/SPOILER}

    Spoilering theories :facepalm:

    This thread is (and has been every year) an absolute joke :D

    Personally, I appreciate it. Yes, it's only a theory, but it can still frame the viewing in a certain way and mean that some things don't come as a surprise.

    Honestly, what's the fuss? Surely this is the best of both worlds? Those that don't care about spoilers can still have their chats, and those of us that don't want to see them don't have to.

    Like fish and human beings, surely we can learn to coexist peacefully?

    Night King was clearly a Stark, that's why the Stark words are Winter is Coming.

    That's just like, my opinion, maaan. But see the wolf shape the Army of the Dead made when they breached the wall? That too.

    Everything can frame the viewing.

    "Did you see the look Bran gave when blah blah blah..."

    Should observations you might have missed be hidden, too?

    Bran is increasingly creepy. he sees every thing. fancy him watching you take a shit or doing a bit of bdsm with your gal.

    Of course, we can't exist in a bubble, and I appreciate there's not a nice, clear dividing line, but still think there are some obvious elements that it'd just be courteous to spoiler.

    An observation about something that's already happened, fair enough. Comprehensive speculation about future events, particularly if/or referencing stuff that hasn't been seen in an episode yet, I think should be spoilered.

    But, that's just me. Obviously it's all just, like, opinions, man.

    No criticism to you for trying to extend a common courtesy. It's a nice thing to do. But it's totally unnecessary. Especially in the context of plot speculation. Google has insisted on showing me ridiculous speculation from supposedly serious news sources for the past 4 months - just pointless click-bait stuff that I stupidly fall for on numerous occasions. I take none of it with any degree of seriousness. The joy of this season will hopefully be that there will be unexpected resolutions to various plot strands, the promised bittersweet ending.

    So speculate away, and don't worry about the spoiler tags. There are that many plausible fan theories that only some can possibly come true. If you end up being right, you can have a bonus like!

    See, in my eyes, even saying "the promised bittersweet ending" is a spoiler; it's giving away the direction the plot is going in.

    If you fall for clickbait stuff, fair enough, but many of us are able to avoid them to some degree or another.

    Why not? Is it really that onerous?
