I accept and agree with the answer that was given on SFF (“Sansa was smart enough to wait for everyone to say aye, so they can’t go back on their word”). However in my opinion there could also be the fact that, the north has always had its own sort of “culture” and independence, there is a certain respect between northern houses. So it’s easier for the ...

It doesn't make sense. The writers should have known better. The writers decided that Bran would be King at the end. Apart from Bran as the Three-Eyed Raven not being King material, more importantly, as the characters were written for 7 1/2 seasons, nobody in their right mind would ever even suggest him as King. The reason is exactly because of the ...

isn't the righteousness of Jon and the fear of Daenerys becoming a tyrant enough to do that? Not really. Remember that Jon and Daenerys are/were in love. Jon pulled away from this once he learned the truth of his heritage, because it meant that Daenerys was actually his aunt. This contributed to Daenerys's anger/madness, and gave her a reason to want him ...

how did they know where to open the portal and look for the help? Strange said there was only one way to win Strange, in knowing this, would know everyone's locations, IF the Avengers managed to achieve the single future that would lead them to overcoming Thanos and succeeding. If they didn't succeed, then everyone would not be where they should be. So ...

Was Sofia showing up at Cruise's character's funeral crying real or part of the Lucid Dream? Yes, that was real. This scene showing Sofia at David's funeral wasn't apart of his Lucid Dream, it was an continuation from David's flashback of killing himself. When Sofia walked into David's apartment she looked at the door frame, the broken guitar where she and ...

Simple: Agent Carter The spin off series takes place without Steve Rogers and happens in 1946/1947 after Rogers crashing the Wing into the ice in 1945 (and in series 2 Carter has moved to LA). So by the time they are reunited Steve has been away for at least 2 years and his yard is a bit overgrown.

Bran's visions (the ones we know of) have always been in the vicinity of weirwood trees. There is a strong connection between weirwood trees and the old gods (which is where the greensight comes from). Most of the weirwood trees in the south of Westeros have been chopped. This is mention in the first (or second) season of the show. We also don't see Bran ...

In addition to this being precisely in-character for Jon, there is precedent for Daenerys leaving with Drogon. She did exactly that after the Sons of the Harpy attacked her in the fight pits of Meereen. And what happened after is that everyone continued what they were doing until Dany returned. Her regime was upheld, awaiting her return. The same would have ...

Love is the death of duty. Jon and Tyrion discussed this quote from Maester Aemon. For Jon, it meant that he had forsaken his duty (acting in the best interest of the Realm) because of his love for Dany. Tyrion then adds that duty can be the death of love. In order words, if Jon wants to do his duty, he must put his feeling of love aside. Quite literally, ...

That said, I'm having a hard time believing this since up to S8E6 I can't recall any instance indicating Bran has wanted to become King, nor set-up anything to become King. Take the example of Jon. At no point did he want to become Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. He even tried to stop Sam from nominating him. But when he was voted in, he did it anyway ...

That saying means, essentially, that it's just as productive to learn from someone else's mistake as it is to be the pioneer. Tony Stark is the pioneer, but Killian took Maya Hansen's Extremis virus and took that to the next level. It was just a way for Killian to say that he and Stark are peers, whereas Stark seems to think just about everyone else is ...

In addition to the other answers, we should remember that Jon was not just in a relationship with Daenerys but was in love with her. He killed her despite his love for her, because of its importance to everyone's lives; but it was still absolutely heartbreaking for him not only to lose her but to be the cause of that loss. I would imagine someone in that ...

There was no 'time' to stop and walk away between the time heist operation and the final battle. Tony knows he is the key to everything. There is only one winning scenario, and that is with him alive to be there. Dr Strange pleas for Tony's life, and only Tony's life at the end of Infinity War. He doesn't know to what extent his role is in the end, but ...

The last we hear of Ilyn Payne is Tywin Lannister on the toilet trying to reason with Tyrion. And the last we saw of him was actually in Season 2 Episode 9, “Blackwater”, when he accompanied Cersei and the Ladies to “free them” should Stannis take the city. Tyrion: All my life, you’ve wanted me dead. A silence between father and son. If Tyrion’s ...

Unless, you are a 9/11 truther, you have a real world example of how intense concentrated fire can cause air to heat up and escape the space which contains it at high velocity. If all the energy of the fire is transferred into the kinetic energy of the expending air and the air delivers that energy with an impact to the walls of a containing structure, ...

Westeros is a world where a main character can take a knife to the heart, die, and then arc back into the story line. It happened to Jon, so the prospect of Daenerys returning on the back of Drogon is real.

He did not know whether it was Jon or not. He just saw her lying there and Jon mourning her death. He might have just thought that someone else did it. We do not know how intelligent the dragons are and whether they can deduct beyond the pure visible.

The simple answer is that we all saw it in the show, therefore it is 100% possible for dragon fire to easily destroy walls in the reality that exists within the show. If you insist on having a real-world physics explanation for how a magical creature in a fictional land can destroy walls, I would suggest that the primary mechanism was the conversion of ...

No. As displayed by Sansa, Bran had never expressed any interest in ruling. (TYRION) He crossed beyond the Wall, a crippled boy, and became the Three-Eyed Raven. He is our memory, the keeper of all our stories. The wars, weddings, births, massacres, famines. Our triumphs, mm, our defeats, our past.Who better to lead us into the future? (SANSA) ...

To understand most of the last season, you need to take a step back. It's also why the season is so irritating to most of the GoT viewers. It's a different genre than the rest of GoT. GoT is mostly a political drama. Season 8 is mostly a parable (with some elements of drama). In a drama, characters are portrayed as human being driven by multiple, often ...

I’d argue that the proof that he’s remaining with the Nights Watch is that he once again put on his black uniform, and wore it as he accompanied the wildlings north. I’d expect that if he were deserting the watch he’d wear his own clothes rather than his uniform.

Brandt was from earlier trials of Extremis (she is seen on the videos regrowing an arm during an early set of the experiments). Savin is from after the work has been more refined, similar to Killian himself, who shows a number of additional abilities on top of the regrowth/strength of the earlier instances. Note that in the early part of the film, Tony is ...

The Adjudicator works for the High Table, which in turn works for the Elder (the "one above the table" referred to in the film). The point of John's trip to get to the Elder is to hope that the Elder will overrule his excommunicado status. Instead he finds himself with the choice that he can be killed, or take the job on of killing Winston, after which his ...

This is just a plausible theory. I was very disappointed that after training for so long to become this magical creature called Three Eyed Raven, Bran did nothing significant when it was expected of him. He plays no part in the fight against the Night King, no warging his way into the undead dragon to kill the Night King. He just sits there and pretty ...

I don't think it's about honor, the way I saw it, Jon didn't want Dany to suffer, i.e. it was a "Mercy Kill". Clearly, Daenerys wasn't herself any longer, and was consumed by grief and hatred. When Jon realized he can't get her back, and the "old Dany" is suffering, he decided to end her pain. He also knows that if he would let her know he's going to kill ...

It's not clear that Sansa was "hell bent" on that decision. She made her case, no-one objected... Maybe she was just taking the opportunity that presented itself. A chance to be a queen of an independent North, the one who will go down in history as freeing it, and with the loyalty of the other Northern houses virtually guaranteed.

In Lucifer, its explained that Hell is where a person goes to punish themselves. Lucifer and his dad have no bearing on people ending up there, it is up to the person. this is explained by Lucifer himself when Cain is dying. this is also why Lucifer punished himself about the death of his brother. pretending not to feel guilt doesn't stop Hell punishing you. ...

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 ...

The ability to warg into a creature seems to depend somewhat on its mental capacity. For example we never see him warging into any person except for Hodor, whose mind is damaged. So it is possible that he can't warg into a dragon because the dragons are too intelligent to be controlled that way.

In addition to the other answers which I think are the primary reason (honour), consider that lying probably would have raised more questions anyway. It would be very odd of her to simply fly away without saying anything, and in time the suspicion would only grow.

Ultimately Jon had to betray someone - Dany or the people he was sworn to protect. Dany was bent on making the world better through force, convinced of her own righteousness. So for example, if Sansa had refused her it seems likely that she would have torched her, if not the whole of Winterfell. The rest of the world gets the same treatment. So Jon killed ...

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 ...


1

He didn't stab her in the back. He did it discreetly, not in order to hide that he did it but too remove the weirdness if he just took a dagger and came running to her to get a kill - that would have been funny lol and last minutes of Danys would have been where he saw Jon came like a lunatic and kill her. But this is very opinion based. Even if it was 1 ...

I agree with Upper_Case's answer on why Arya doesn't care about it, but think this is also simply not possible for Bran. While we do not have an exact definition of Bran's powers it seems many people make two assumptions that are not correct, one being he can see everything everywhere at will and the other being he can see in the future. The latter is not ...

As mentioned by Sam was last spotted flying east, toward.... So what is in the east of westeros? From harpersbazaar GoT fans speculate that Drogon was actually headed for Old Valyria, an ancient fallen city in Essos (which is east of Westeros, as Sam suggested) once ruled by dragonlords, and the ancestral homeland of House Targaryens and their ...

As far as I remember we never actually see any to or from addresses on any of the packages so it's anyone's guess where they were headed. That said, I should point out the flaw in your conclusion that the angel wing package was destined for Texas. The angel wing lady lives in Texas and that is her logo. So the package bearing her logo is not being sent to ...

Because he is a man of honesty and it has been shown in his own words before (from season 7 finale): "I'm not going to swear an oath I can't uphold. When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies." And if you go by his arc he can lie and cheat easily to get away many times ...

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 ...

I never noticed this before, but now that I watched it I think he had a hard time getting near to the tank tracks, which are the only place on the outside of the tank that is vulnerable, and just lost track of how fast the fuse was burning.

Does Jon really abandon the Night's Watch, or is he still keeping his vows? In the beginning of ASOIAF, the duty of the Night's Watch consisted of manning the Wall to protect Westeros against the wildlings. Later on, it shifted to protecting the humanity against the Night King and his armies. Now, the Night King is defeated and the wildlings are no longer ...

From what I heard from NPR news today. They're going to be two or three spin-offs from Game of Thrones. Bran saying that he can find it leaves an open end to the series. Extra open ends quoted: "Jon asks if killing Daenerys was right. "Ask me again in 10 years," Tyrion says, which at this rate is what George R.R. Martin should say when anyone grills him ...

This is a Caesar cipher where b=a. It says: A DAVID ROBERT MITCHELL FILM UNDER THE SILVER LAKE You can see this yourself by using a site like this.

The time Jon spent among the free-folk was the happiest period of his life. He fell in love with Ygritte, but beyond that he had an affinity with the people and the way they lived without tyranny. This is all very well illustrated in the books, but the clearest evidence we have in the TV show is the foreshadowing conversation he has with Tyrion in the ...

1. We've no evidence that Bran knows anything about anywhere other than Westeros This is obviously not definitive, we know essentially nothing about the limits of Bran's abilities. But it's possible that this is a question he just doesn't know the answer to, or may decline to answer for reasons we couldn't even begin to guess at. 2. Arya isn't looking for ...

As stated in the show, Jon's claim to the Iron Throne is stronger than Dany's. Dany is a female child of Aerys II, never intended to succeed as ruler. Jon is the true son of Rhaegar, the direct male descendant to the throne. Sexism definitely plays a role in--Targaryan rulers of Westeros are male. (Baelor the Blessed married his sisters, but was King ...


2

I don't get the impression they intend to start a noble house, just that they are going to continue Dany's original mission of protecting the unprotected. Also, Grey Worm wants to honor his pledge to Missandei, and the Unsullied have nothing better to do.


3

Dareon's answer nails it in terms of symbolism. My guess on an in-universe answer is that Drogon has spent so much time linked to Dany, he knows the throne was the object that led her to her death. (Pure speculation, mind you!)


7

As a the most powerful skinchanger we know of, it is possible Bran, as the Three Eyed Raven, might be able not only to find Drogon, but control him.


1

My sense is that is is because he is was Lord of House Tarly, and elevated for having fought in the battle against the white walkers to save the realms of men. (Presumably, he gives up his Lordship when he becomes Grand Maester, but this is never explicitly stated.) The involvement in the battle against the Night King was probably why Davos Seaworth, a ...

I think it's easier to get around to this by directing you to another question. Why was Lord Gendry Baratheon, the Rejected there? He was a bastard, so not normally recognized as a legitimate heir. He wouldn't even hold the Baratheon name normally. The only person who had recognized him as the legitimate holder of the Stormlands, and gave him the name of ...
