wildfire is a really good idea, as long as they are away from the ice wall and like, civilization. Any chance they will think of it before WW army reaches winterfell?

Do they even have any wildfire left? Tyrion had the fire-master halt production for Cersei for his plan at the Blackwater, then Cersei used hers in rather spectacular fashion which I assume consumed quite a bit more.

That I suspect is an interesting issue. Does Tyrion know how its made? Do they need Qyburn to make it? Could Sam work it out?
I guess we'll see.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

I thought Qyburn made some?

If sam could cure greyscale, he can make wildfire.

That would be a kick in the pants.

As for Sam, presumably someone wrote down the recipe for wildfire so he can read it.

Yes but it would have been Qyburn. Unless Tyrion can remember it, that makes life interesting.

Littlefinger was the best character. **** all of westeros for killing off the most clever, heartwarming character in the show. Sure, he wasn't perfect. Sure, he was sometimes selfish.

He did lots of good things though, started from modest beginnings, was a small business owner, and when he graduated his position to master of coin, he increased the revenue of Kings Landing by 4 times. He saw how much of a dick Joffery was, and arranged to have him killed, then rescued Sansa from dangerous accusations by getting her out of there. He spotted Arya working for Tywin, but he always loved Arya, and did not rat her out. He told Cat about it a few episodes later. He rescued John Snow and all the wildlings AND Sansa during the Battle of the Bastards, which basically saved ALL of westeros from the Night King's wrath.

Littlefinger was a ****ing hero.

Littlefinger was a dead man walking the moment he left Sansa w/ Ramsey, that was his greatest error.

Yeah, agreed, that's not something Sansa would ever be able to forget. Plus, the attempt to instigate conflict between the Stark sisters was pedestrian by his standards. Also from a practical perspective, it's clear that the series creators needed the cull some characters to have a more focussed showdown between the undead and the living.

I believe his character truly believed that he could just manipulate them at will. That they weren't people to fear and that he could toy with them. Even up to mere seconds before his death he thought he had complete control. Arrogance killed him and he utterly underestimated his opponents, revealing his greatest flaw, not giving young women enough credit.

At least that's my view and it keeps the show from looking bad, so I choose to believe that. Otherwise I'd be so annoyed I couldn't watch it anymore.

I would agree, especially after he started tutoring Sansa. (As an aside, Sansa developed from the most annoying character bar none to someone who has quite a few badass moments.)

The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Good points, Arya said exactly that in the first few minutes of season 1, episode 1.

And in other news, Jon Snow and Ygritte are getting married. Not on the show.

I think his time had come no matter what. GRRM originally plotted this as one book of political maneuvering (Game of Thrones), one book of a civil war (Clash of Kings), one book of reuniting the realm under a Targayen ruler (Dance of Dragons) and one book of fighting the White Walkers (Winds of Winter). Littlefinger is a product of the first era and he has survived in the second, but we are now in the third and moving towards the fourth. His time is over just as much as Ned's was at the end of the first season.

really good comments P. Arya would never want to be lady of winterfell, but of course people who don't know her would assume that. What had me worried is how paranoid Sansa had become and trusting in Littlefinger.

Agreed w capt also, Littlefinger miscalculated when he gave Sansa to Bolton.

Littlefinger's murder-in-secret at the Moon Door gave me chills. Season after season, however, I just found that he talked more and twisted the plot less. To me, his time seemed up at Season 7. I was expecting Littlefinger to be hung or decapitated, something more dramatic than just little Ayra's throat slit to do justice.

FALSE ACCUSATIONS. I mean. Yeah, it was an error. He didn't know about Ramsey being ****ed up. But thanks to LF, Jon Snow retook winterfell and Ramsey is now dead. Without our hero Petry Baelish, all of westeros would be ****ed! Right proper ****ed!

He could have convinced the Night King that his enemy was to the North.

I've been thinking for a while about how they could build this into the plot for Season 8. Jon Snow already banished Lady of Light from the north, yet he owes her his life. The two are likely to have an encounter, where she will remind him of that. I wonder if she'll prompt the question: "So, do you love me for saving your life? Or, do you still love Ygritte, the one whom you yourself burned north of the wall?" I wonder if he will be affected emotionally enough to put him in a weaker position to bring his leadership into question.

I've been looking for a post similar to my question, but I could not find it.

Hello mates, I would speculate on possible new scenes from the writers of the series. In the first season there were many doubts and little discussions about the conversation between Robert and Cersei, -I liked- In this second season, I will like to know how the possible new scenes. What will change or invent?

Can't wait. I wish we got a full season but I'll take it! Not going to rewatch anything but I did rewatch the one with the Hodor origin a few days ago... I forgot what triggered or made me want to see that one again.
