we see Arya stand from the ashes un-burnt even though she was clearly covered in fire You don't see Arya clearly covered in fire. You see Arya obscured by fire, i.e. there is fire between Arya and the camera. Arya ducked behind a wall (IIRC of an alley). Flames tend to flow (I can't speak to real life but this is how they are shown in GOT), and thus don't ...

It's a major plot hole is what it is. People can come up with all the excuses they want, what happened is S08E05 can in no logical way make sense after what happened in S08E04. The scenes where Drogon sweeps over chains of scorpions without any of them being aimed at him or fired in time even though he takes ages to do those sweeps and that he seems closer ...

Daenerys appears to be protected though an immunity (or at least, a high resistance) to fire, whereas the Night King appears to be protected through the sheer cold that radiates from him. While it isn't depicted consistently, fire in the vicinity of the Night King does tend to snuff out, as seen in S06E05 "The Door" when the Children of the Forest create a ...

You misunderstood one important thing: Dr. Strange did not travel through time. He just looked into 14mil different possible futures to see the one scenario where they could win. His body stayed in the present all the time, as you can clearly see during this whole scene. And even if he would have been able to really travel there: this future would not be ...

In the Inside the Episode David and Dan (showrunners) say the reason she is more scared here is because she is in a weakened state after getting hit on the head outside. They say at that point she is just trying to survive. She doesn't feel like she is able to take on all of them at once anymore and now is just trying to make it out alive.

Drogon is capable of single-handedly wiping out an entire city in a reasonably short period of time. One of the strongest armed cities in Westeros (with weapons designed specifically for him) was devastated and leveled by Drogon. He indiscriminately incinerated (yes at Dany's orders) men, women and children - military and civilian alike; there is no reason ...

Jon did not commit to murdering Daenerys when he came to the Throne room. The first thing he did was lash out at her about killing innocent civilians and prisoners of war. He had been a passive partner to Daenerys these last few episodes. He lashed out in anger because he wanted Daenerys to see reason. To snap her out of the cloud of smoke to see the ...

According to Scooby-Doo Behind the Scenes (released in 1998; see Wikiquote), the initial money to start out was given to them by Daphne’s dad: Daphne: "Well, Daddy gave us the money to start off. (shows an image of the check that first financed Mystery Inc.) We didn't even have a car, so we gave our parents gas money to drive us around." ...

She has become mad pragmatic While some will argue she has become as mad as her father, I will argue she has all her mind. One important element to understand this is the dialogue she had with Jon Snow before the attack Far more people in Westeros love you than love me. I don't have love here. I only have fear [...] Alright then," she says. "Let it be ...

Although they are Russo's words, I don't agree to their reasoning. I do, however, agree with their decision to pass on the symbol of Captain America to Sam. Bucky is fighting for the right side now but that doesn't absolve him of the crimes he committed. Him being brainwashed doesn't erase his sins. At the end of Civil War Bucky is still a criminal ...

Sam is a brother of the Night's Watch and has given up his right of succession as part of his oath. Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on ...

In S08E04 The Last of the Starks, when Jon is saying goodbye to Tormund, he tells Tormund that the freefolk are welcome to stay in Winterfell but Tormund tells him he will take his people beyond the Wall where they belong, where they like to wander around. He also says to Jon to come with him beyond the Wall as Tormund believes Jon has got the North in him. ...

What Bran is referring to is his ability to use greensight to see the past, something he has been able to do at will since inheriting the role of Three-Eyed Raven. For example, he was able to look back and see Jon's true lineage. Bran seems to imply that this ability is unique to the Three-Eyed Raven - He'll come for me. He's tried before, many times, ...

You are actually completely right. This is plot hole, probably because of rushed writing. In real life such a 'coup' would never have succeeded. Any and all transactions done in such a fraudulent way, would indeed be blocked or the ones that went through would be canceled afterwards. There are plenty of witnesses that can say that Bane =/= Bruce Wayne. This ...

The short answer is: accountability. After Obadiah Stane's betrayal during Iron Man 1, the only people Tony trusts with the Iron Man technology are his best friend James Rhodes and (as of Endgame) his wife Pepper Potts, because he does not want to risk it being used for the sort of atrocities the Ten Rings used his weapons for in Iron Man 1. This is also the ...

We all know Dracarys is the word to release Dragon fire. Missandei is telling Daenerys to burn Cersei Lannister. Nathalie Emmanuel who played Missandei tweeted after the release and response of S08E04. She tweeted "Dracarys" and replied with "Burn the bish". Bish is slang for bitch and she is referring to Cersei Lannister by that word.

As an out-of-universe reason, this is a great opportunity for the showrunners to remind us how sneaky Arya can be. She is indeed a formidable fighter, but she is also very good at remaining hidden and undetected. We get to see for ourselves that she is capable of evading enemies who are mere feet away, which turns out to be extremely important later in the ...

If that was the real plane carrying a nuke enough to level Manhattan, wouldn't the nuke explode and destroy the base along with them if he fired a rocket launcher at it? No. Detonating a modern nuclear device is, in fact, incredibly difficult and merely shooting down the aircraft carrying it would not be sufficient. In fact, several aircraft carrying ...

Possible in-universe answer: Whatever charm he used to shield himself from fire surrounds him, leaving his clothing and weapon unharmed. Narrative answer: Nudity is often used to connote vulnerability. Having the Night King appear sky-clad after a display of power meant to sink everyone's hearts would have produced a contrary effect. (Plus, I doubt ...

Daenerys has decided to rain fire on the keep already, which prompts Grey Worm and the Unsullied to attack. Jon does not command the Unsullied, so it is reasonable that they would not respond to his commands to hold back. Once the Unsullied begin attacking, the Lannister army begins attacking back to defend themselves, and chaos ensues. Jon alone is ...

Jon Snow is a man of honor. It's part of his core personality. His own personal care is less important for him than being honorable and doing the right thing for the people. Running away after killing someone (no matter who or what the reasons are) is a very cowardly act, so it's against his very nature. Also keep in mind he didn't try to run away from ...

Thanos is enraged when he finally breaks the shield. Prior to his angry onslaught, we see the shield deflect the sword several times. It's not necessarily that Tony's blade is stronger than Steve's shield, but it isn't being hit as hard. Tony's blade is made up of his nanites, which are extremely durable. For example, We also see the nanites make a gauntlet ...

Nebula didn't ask for a deed, she was just telling the story. Why did Ant-Man use "not it" in this conversation? He's saying..."Don't choose me to go there" Scott knows they have to go there to get the Soul Stone and he's making the deliberate statement that he doesn't want to be the one selected. Would you? NEBULA: "A dominion of death, at the very ...

It was always unclear why Captain America couldn't lift Mjolnir in Age of Ultron. Was he not worthy at all? Unlikely; it's Captain America after all, worthiness goes with the character, his MCU version at least. Plus, Mjolnir did move. (Note that in the comics, Cap has wielded Mjolnir) Was he not completely worthy yet? Possibly. After all, there is still ...

There's nothing remarkable about wanting to know where a dangerous, possibly vengeful city-destroying dragon with unclear motivations has gone - but it's worth asking why did King Bran immediately leave the small council meeting to go dragon-hunting, instead of staying to discuss matters of state? Bran showed no interest in anything else that went on in the ...

Question: What is the Ancient One's mistake? The mistake the Ancient One was referring to was her initial intent to not give the Time Stone to Banner. Before explaining, it's important to mention/keep in mind that the Ancient One has the ability to see the future (but only so far). Going into the events of The Avengers (as shown in Avengers: Endgame), the ...

Generally speaking, most likely no. Refueling in mid-air requires special equipment on both the giver and receiver for this process to work, and it looks like most commercial planes do not have this equipment. Aerial fueling with other aircrafts Civilian aircraft: Commercial and private airplanes are not designed for air-to-air refueling. ...

We see Arya stand from the ashes un-burnt even though she was clearly covered in fire... why was she not burnt, does this have something to do with her killing the Night king? It was simply the camera angle that made her appear to be on fire. By the time Drogon's flames reached the wall Arya was behind, she was already a couple feet past the corner and ...

Without any dialogue or out-of-universe explanation from the writers themselves, the only objectively true interpretation is that the reason for Jon traveling north is left as intentionally ambiguous. Is he accompanying the free-folk to guide them to a new home? Is he doing a favor for Tormund? Is he taking Tormunds invitation to stay with the free folk? ...


57

Because there is a conflict between multiple of his honors here. He vowed loyalty to Daenerys, and even after all that happened seems to still love her to some extent. He is shown very often and very clearly not to break oaths, even risking the whole expedition North over this particular one. He vowed to protect all people, the common folk. Literally as ...
