What was in those notes/letters Jon read before final scene and who sent them (Melisandre?) ?

remember that "You know nothing Jon Snow?", felt like she had unfinished business with him...

She also predicted "that the dead will rise in the north" and "armies are toys of LoL".



btw there is a fleet of ships available now Stannis has no use for them not sure if they are still

owned by bank and someone might get them with a discount...



i think we will have busy 6th season

For the notes, these are most likely the replies to the Ravens Jon sent out a few episodes ago asking for help (men). As was before they most likely said no.

The Mountain from 'Game of Thrones' Crushes Stones Circuit at Strongman Event

By Dan Carson, Trending Lead Writer Jun 17, 2015







As your monthly reminder that Hafthor Bjornsson is a large rock golem put on Earth solely to move mountains and behead horses, I present to you footage from his recent outing at Iceland's Strongest Man competition.




Bjornsson, known for his work popping skulls like overripe peaches as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane on HBO's Game of Thrones, posted video of his dominant performance in the Atlas Stones event on Tuesday.


The 6'9", 419-pound Icelander moved through the hernia competition stones circuit with relative ease. He then ripped his shirt, because he is Thor, and worldly garb cannot contain him.


Now, it goes without saying, but let's be clear: Do not try this at home, kids.


Hunchback-edly lifting a rock the weight of a bull elk is a quick and easy way to have the tubing of your gastrointestinal tract playing peek-a-boo through your abdominal wall. It will end in misery and disc slippage—unless you're Bjornsson, who is strong like t and the undisputed "king of stones."


Remember, he's done this before—shirt-ripping and all—when he won Europe's Strongest Man competition in 2014.


Bjornsson has another day of events on deck in Iceland. I hope he wins and celebrates by consuming one of the Atlas Stones like a giant jawbreaker.

Did Bjornsson make the transition to Zombie Mountain, or did they use a 4th actor for the role?

Lena Headey's nude Walk of Shame body double speaks

While filming the Walk in Dubrovnik last October, Van Cleave performed nude while Headey wore a simple beige shift...the show’s visual effects team then merged the performances together—combining Headey’s progression of facial emotions during Cersei’s punishing hike to the Red Keep and Van Cleave’s physical movement echoing Headey’s body language in order to create the seamless illusion that Headey was completely bare for the sequence...

I just ran across this and posted it to the other group. Forgive me if you've all seen this but I just ran across it and thought it was hilarious. It's Cold Play's Game of Thrones Musical:

Thanks Chief. I didn't think there were because it was based mostly on the series and not the books. I can appreciate the knee-jerk reaction from some though in this forum. It has been spoiled in the past.

Maybe Phil will say, the could seems like he didn't watch (maybe?). It's all based on the show and basically a comedy sketch.

I think this is from previous seasons. They were talking about the "down there kiss" and some other older topics. Nothing even from this season.

I watched it and it is funny, what I was thinking of is the rest of the links that are in the chain. Watched a good # of then and found them very entertaining. I wonder if at this stage of the Game if there are even any spoilers left. What we need are some new books or another season from the rest of books 4&5. Could that be a spoiler? Were are the spoiler cops when they are needed.

That was that hot and a half red head that was in love with Jon. Think they had a little fun filming the hot water in the cave scene.

That wouldn't count. If you go randomly clicking on videos then that's on you if you get spoiled. Much like clicking and searching things related to GoT on anything outside of what has been known not to be a spoiler.

Yes there are still spoilers (I do not know what they are) as I have heard on the podcasts I listen to there are a few things left.

Put red hair on her and have her play Ygritte's sister. So when Jon pops back as ?? he has a girl friend waiting. Van Cleave is to hot not to be a new cast member.

I don't understand why so many people like Varys, Barriston Selmy, Ser Jorah and more across Westeros are pining for a return of a Targaryen to rule...the last Targaryen king was crazy and a rebellion was started to overthrow him...did everyone just forget that?...back in Season 1 when Viserys was talking about how the people were clamoring for his return I thought he was just being delusional...going further back in history wasn't King Aegon Targaryen also crazy?...why are the people of Westeros fans of the Targaryens?

Can't talk about anything that hasn't been shown your discussion is probably best for the other thread l....

As far as liking Varys are you talking as a character or people in the show? Without his connections Varys would not be "popular". They "like" him because they can use him for his connections.

you misinterpreted my use of the word 'like'...I wasn't talking about people 'liking' Varys...I was using the word 'like' to describe the number of people across Westeros who are in favor of a new Targrayen dynasty-- people like Varys, Ser Jorah etc

I was talking exclusively about the events of the show...it doesn't make sense why so many people want Daenerys to rule Westeros when her family has a history of doing terrible things and a rebellion was started to remove the last Targaryen King

So many people? Her base support is in the east. Westeros she has "supposed" support, but we have not seen anything actual outside of exiles. I think it's obvious that when the Targaryans ruled that for the most part things were good. They did have a couple of bad seeds, but many dynasty's do. All we have to do is look at current day politics. People run off their names many times and people will vote for them because they know the name.

For the most part those in power aren't much better. Danny has the name and with the right training could be a very good leader. Varys/Tyrion et all have seen the makings of a great leader that is different than those that currently lead. I'm not sure I agree that "so many" people like her or want her in power. Heck they tried to kill her not too long ago.

Varys and to a lesser extent Tyrion want PEACE, and a unified realm. Danny represents the best chance of that.

I've been playing the Game of Thrones game by Telltale, and it's actually pretty good. Lots of surprising twists just like the show, and you get to see major series events from different points of view. Good way to pass the time waiting for next year.

Well, just like modern day politics you wanna back the least crazy one that has a shot of winning. Dany is relatively sane and humane for a royal, and she has freaking dragons.
