In the last shot of him holding Cersei you could see some of the skin surrounding his eyes. It was sort of an ashen gray and definitely did not look healthy.

The show doesn't have nearly enough nudity for my taste. Please let us see Jaqen H'ghar nude next season. Please. Please.

As I recall during the first season, at a tournament the Mountain went after another Night that had unhorsed him, The Knight of the Flowers I think. Just before the Mountain was going to kill him the Hound stepped in and the two of them went after each other until King Robert yelled enough. The Hound went to one knee just as the Mountain was taking a swing and the blade went right over his head. The Hound and the Mountain were pretty close in size. The Hound was known as Joffrey dog. Both were loyal to the King and family.

Well, if she can't charm them into not killing her, she always has Drogon to help convince them, and there is always the possibility that they have learned who the Mother of Dragons is. I mean, the hoard that encircled her seems a bit much just to deal with one tiny woman. Eh? I am entertaining the thought that Drogon brought her there for a reason. Dragons have wisdom and powers beyond there awesome physicality.

Drogon's majestic power was somehow taken down a few notches for me .. laying on the ground in the middle of a circle of bones and essentially worthless .. really .. ?? A couple spear shots that really don't do all that much damage and he's reduced to this .. ??


And you know, the Dothraki horde just happened to be in the area just at the right time .. somebody must have tipped them off that Dany was home .. "What a stroke of luck, fellow Dothraks, we don't have to cross no stinking water now .. "


Somebody mentioned earlier about Dany being rather dirty, clothes soiled, etc .. well, hey, you ride a Dragon for who knows how many miles and see what you look like ..

Given GRRM's pechant for killing off major characters, it seems like even the frickin' dragons aren't safe!

Maybe Drogon was playing possum, to keep Dany hanging around for some reason. And, don't forget that dragons like to sleep, and breathing fire must be tiring. Give Drogon a break.

looks like the fortune teller/witch's prediction about all of Cersei's children dying is slowly coming true...only Tommen remains and he doesn't seem in great shape after not eating etc...the entire Tyrell clan was missing from the finale (Margaery, Loras, Olenna) and so was Littlefinger and Roose Bolton

That wasn't how I read that scene at all. To me it was more like Drogon saying, "Leave me alone mom, I'm trying to sleep." He was tired and just didn't have any time for her shenanigans.

I'm willing to bet a lot of money that JS and the hound will been seen alive and kicking again in this series. However I'm betting that Stannis is dead dead since he doesn't really have any more of a story line to go on with.

if Stannis is dead then where does that leave Ser Davos...he's one of my favorite characters and his entire story seemed tied with Stannis...where does he go from here?...if Jon Snow is also dead then he really has no major ties with anyone else...he's not going to stick around with Melisandre...maybe he can join up with Daenerys

He's one of my favorites too. Whatever happens to him, I hope it ends up keeping him in the show somehow.

I thought of Iphigenia in Aulis -- the circumstances are much more similar.

Not sure I agree. 1 he's not fully grown, so still much more vulnerable than he would be. It's not like they have never ending energy even Smaug needed to sleep.... We don't know how much damage he took and at least to me it read more of exhaustion rather than the wounds affecting him. They are just showing that dragons are vulnerable especially when young.

If you count replays from previous seasons sure JS as we know him is dead dead. May he be resurrected as someone new? Who knows, but he won't be the person we once knew him as. For the Hound I wish you luck with that bet, dead is dead and not all are shown. The Hound has even less of a story line to go with than Stannis.

Set Davos has a few options including the Wildlings he once was a seaman so there is always that as well. No need to have major ties in order to move forward.

Even though Cersi did her walk, I believe it was said there's still going to be a trial for the things she has denied, so we will probably see Loras and Margaery on trial next season as well.

He gets a spin off wherein he opens a tavern and slings tall smuggling yarns to his regular customers. His Pirate friend is always showing up with the hot babes and causing trouble. They argue all the time but they're also really good friends.

Dead is dead and that's not something I think the actor or the creators want to backtrack on. JS is dead dead, the way out and what I have been thinking is that he "could" come back redirected as someone else. If you want JS however, that was the last of him.
