    @Shakira Daley he didn't inform everyone. The maesters in old town were not told or shown and probable will think the whole thing was a bunch of Northmen superstition. Many others were also not told, and they won't believe. The people he did tell were the Northmen who were gonna fight anyways, Cersei who didn't really care, and Danny whom he screwed by making her go North to save his life only to lose a dragon and then he would betray her and say he had no choice but to bend the knee when she had sworn...

    D&D really shat on the Prophecy of Azor Ahai and the Long night this season

    @Anders Rapp but if you really think of it...everything that happened to Dany, everything that shaped her....the war, her parents dead, the Targaryan reign ending, her being raised by her crazy brother and being constantly on the run when she was a child was actually caused by Rheagar. Dany would have been a very different person if Rhaegar could have kept his d*ick in his pants.

    Dark Dagger They really shat on it. It’s like they took all the prophecies and character arcs, flipped them upside down and made worst possible versions of beloved characters imaginable.
