    "The singers can go on about their hammer and anvil, ser, but it was the kinslayer who turned the tide with a white arrow and a black spell. He rules us now as well, make no mistake. King Aerys is his creature. It would not surprise me to learn that Bloodraven had ensorcelled His grace, to bend to his will. Small wonder we are cursed."
    - Ser Eustace to Ser Duncan from The Sworn Sword, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    Okay two things bugging me right off the bat. You wouldn't say "Bob the second Jones" like you did with that Targaryen king at the beginning. You would say "Bob Jones the Second." Also, it's pronounced "alb-eye-no," not "alb-ee-no."

    Great video!

    Wouldn't have been cool to see how all this played out? Instead they dropped it all, Snoked the NK and completely blew every character arc.

    Children of the forest are the true monsters and are holding bloodraven captive. Remember they were the ones to create the white walkers and may now want revenge on humanity for going trail of tears on them

    The three eyed crow was in the books, not a raven and Blood Raven is not the three eyed crow. The show became garbage, focus on the books please.

    Brynden wanting Jon to be king makes having Bran king make even less sense. I have no idea what made GRRM think Bran should be king. His plot doesn't fit at all, only Jon and Daenerys have connections to the magic and political storylines, unlike Bran who is so cut off from everyone. It's been two months and I still have no clue why GRRM wanted Bran to be king. Does anyone have any ideas why Bran would be a "good" king? I can only see him as a potential villain down the line.

    I've seen a theory that states that BR is not in fact the Three Eyed Crow. It's also a very good read.

    Man I wish I didn't watch this video. It promises so much that I can't help but hope it's true. If it isn't then...

  • I used to be liberal I`m sorry

    Brynden Rivers is basically Littlefingers and Varys on steroids.
