    This is material great for a final 2 seasons of the and amazing build up. No lets just get Arya to do it in an 8 episode season.

    So in the end Dany got into the fire and "gave birth" to three dragons for nothing and Jon came back from the dead for nothing.

    Alt Shift X Would've ended Game of Thrones better than D&D

    Is there any chance Rhaegar is based on any historical figures?

    The Rebellion was waiting to happen, and it was Aerys' actions that set it off more than Rhaegar's. In fact, it is surprising that the Targaryens lasted for that long a time after their dragons perished.

    All of that mesmerizing and deep prophecy only for Jon to do...really not that much. Maybe the point is that prophecy is bullshit? But then why did Jaime end up dying next to Cersei like the prophecy states, or why was Cersei followed by a queen more beautiful than her? Maybe the ending in the books really will end up being the same as that of GoT but I'm sure GRRM will actually, I don't know, develop any sort of logical continuity for Arya saving the day. I mean, what's the purpose in calling the series A Song of Ice and Fire if Jon isn't Lightbringer?

    I do hope when George R R Martin finishes writing this series it fixes the open sore that was season 7 and 8. It should not look anything like that TV embarrassment of the ages.
