Rocky 4? Is that some new Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavor?

Roose knew his son and he had to know that he was in danger. By restoring his son to his family name and naming him an heir, Roose had to be able to convince Ramsay that Roose was still needed. Threatening that his child could possibly usurp Ramsay's position was a threat and also a possible breaking point for Ramsay.

Reminds me quite a bit about Dune with Baron Harkonnen and Feyd-Rautha. The Baron had to avoid a death plot and convince Feyd that the Baron was worth keeping around. When you raise your kids in a sharktank, don't be surprised if they act like sharks.

Question for y'all.

At Castle Black, I am a bit confused as to what team Sansa's assignments are. I think Brienne/Pod are supposed to go to Riverrun to recruit the Tullys. Jon and Sansa leave with B/P but I think they are going recruiting in the North. I don't know if Davos and Melissandrei are going with them.

Anyone know?

My thoughts are that Davos and Melisandre are going to latch onto Jon like Stannis. They will follow him now. Sending Brienne to the Riverlands opens up the possibility that some of the material in AFFC Riverlands is explored. I can't see the point in sending Brienne otherwise.

Melisandra is going with Jon come heck or high water. Davos has been cast adrift and needs to anchor himself to Jon, plus he and Melisandre have a strange psychic deathgrip on each other.

In my opinion, for different reasons, Jon is the only one that gives them purpose.

IMHO, They are setting Arya up to be hired by someone to kill one of her siblings, or Tyrion, or Dany.

She will go on the mission as a "faceless", however, in a defining moment for the show, Arya will re-assert herself, (As the true "faceless man" alwaays knew she would" and instead of killing her target, will turn on her employer, and finally kill that bitch....

I really think Arya will get kill the younger actress instead of the one she is contracted to kill and get kicked out of The Faceless Men. This will allow her to go back home and go after the people on her list. Remember, she still has Needle buried outside The Faceless Men's headquarters. I doubt they would have shown her burying that if she wasn't going to use it again. If she truly became a Faceless Man, she wouldn't care about or use Needle. Arya's telling Jaqen what he wants to hear for now, but she's too hot-headed and her name means to much to her to truly fit in with their training for much longer.

I think you are being too hopeful. I get the impression that "no one leaves" the Faceless Men and that they would kill her if she "fails" again.

That could be the "big" death this season.

Spoiler!


I enjoyed this show but thought it ended too soon. Really liked how the High Sparrow beat houses Tyrell and Lannister without fighting. In the books, Jamie did go get Riverrun back for his king although there were elements not present in the show. I want to see how that works with Jamie, Pod and Brienne. The Tarlys was kind of like a bad sitcom.

So, Benjen is kinda Coldhands? Edit: The Showrunners after the show sequence confirm this though he doesn't seem to be the same Coldhands in the books.

I think I came pretty close to calling what happened with Arya. Except, they aren't just going to let her leave.

Do you know where I can find this released chapter? I could only find the most current one, about Arianne and Dorne. I wish I'd known he'd been releasing them. I would have read them all. *pout*

I was thinking, if Arya kills the waif, that might possibly be enough, to add the waif's face. Jaq'en only said, 'a face will be added.' He never specified (he only implied), it's either you or your target. He did say she wouldn't get another chance, but that could mean, you won't get another chance to become faceless.

Thanks Daryl! Yes, I understand about spoilers, but I'll buy the book as soon as it hits the shelves. Doesn't seem like much difference to me, except this way is much slower.

Check her out, outside of the show. When I watched some interview with several cast members, she looks almost unrecognizable.

I'm hoping that doesn't happen. Jaimie did have this odd connection with her at one point. We haven't seen him fight for a long time, I wonder if he's gotten any better with that gimp hand. If he hasn't got any better, he's going to lose all his credibility when he's seen fighting poorly, if he survives.

I liked the line about being fat enough already.
LOL.

Spoiler tags would have been nice there prior to revealing the "full season leak's" insight. While this is the "spoilers allowed" thread I think that's more for book discussion than Reddit leaks...

Sometimes just the casting serves as a spoiler. I knew the stage acting company would be more than just Arya waltzing in and doing a quick murder because Richard E. Grant is one of the stage actors. I doubt he'd take a tiny little role.

No, you can post your stuff here but your post is too easily read without a warning. Provide spoiler tags or warnings so that someone can decide for himself whether he wants to know that.

I don't mind theories or stuff from books but I don't want to know about the season leak.

I am going to give others warnings so they can decide how far into spoilers they want to go. Just look at my posts a bit further up.

It isn't exactly difficult to post a warning or use spoiler tags.

This thread was for book spoilers, not just spoilers in general.

Why the hell would anyone go read stupid leaks like that anyway?

I see this thread as spoilers for people who might not be up to date on the TV airings. That way, I know not to read the thread until I've caught up to the current weak's show. I don't read the books either so there's that.

Full season leaks are a whole other category.
