She never burned her hand.

Perhaps you are thinking of Dany's khalasar "maid" who burned her hands on the eggs in season 1 after Dany handled them without a problem?

It has been a very fast pace 4 episodes this season.

I smelled a trap being sprung by the High Sparrow. Also suspected that the Red Woman may face her on destiny down the line. It would be most interesting to see Ramsey's fate. Arya's part is the most boring piece , quite different from the book.

Sorry, it was in the book. I keep reading on line that in the slaver's pit when she is escaping she burns her hand. The internet was buzzing that in the book she burned herself but on the show they are making her fire proof. Sorry for the confusion, I don't believe they showed it in the show, only the book.

Assuming it is a change from what Martin showed/intended in the books, I think most people are happy with the change. I love the idea of a fireproof Dany.

I like it as well, my only beef is why she has not been using this apparent Super Human ability to her own advantage all along .. ?? Other than the "Egg Hatching Pyre", I don't recall any other dramatic use up till now with the giant yert ..

Well, while it's very effective when used at the right time, it's not like being able to shoot laser beams out of your eyes (my favorite super power). If the Khals had known she could do that, they would pretty much have overpowered her before letting her near the braziers filled with fire.

I can't think of any other situation outside of the dragon's birth that would have called for it. Both times, she used the result to overawe followers and take over lead of the group. The first time it was over a small number of Dothraki, this time it's just about every Dothraki. Much more effective use of a super power than freakin' laser beams out of freakin' eyes.

What I really liked was that she was strategic enough to plan and execute it. Major co$j$ones.

IMO...

I don't disagree .. all I'm saying is previous selective use of her asbestos body in order to dramatically impress a populace such as Meereen could have enhanced her God Like status and possibly helped whip the nay-sayers into shape .. eye beams not withstanding .. smoke 'em if ya got 'em ..

The Dothraki men would have been too distracted by her naked body to notice she was fireproof.

Is it too much to ask to have frickin laser beams shoot out of your eyes?



I think she holds it for maximum effect. Plus the Dothraki Khals were in a small wooden room that she was able to lock them into (surprised that the big Khals couldn't break through any walls/doors). Also, she is vulnerable to all other manners of attack.

There is an article about a post on reddit that the user spoiled the entire season. Apparently this user has spoiled things in the past and has been 100% accurate. The thread was removed but the article summarizes what was said. Interesting things in store this season.

An extra on set doing the spoil of a major scene. If true, not bad. Let's just say he has no idea how the edit might look from inside a set. Still ..

Kinda surprising, considering how strict the contracts are to work on the show. HBO and GoT producers take that seriously, and can sue you if you leak information.

What does spoiling the entire season get someone like that? A free post on reddit, got him what? I hope reddit helps the creators trace him down and fire him and possibly sue him. Make it difficult for a jackass like that to work in the industry.

Leaking spoilers in no way will reduce the viewership or demand for the show, if anything the exact opposite. I agree that it was illegal if he broke NDA but there are other legal ways leaks happen - e.g the famous iPhone left at a bar.

looks like this theory might be on the right track...based on the Hodor 'hold the door' reveal (which was absolutely brilliant by the way) it looks like Bran can indeed have an effect on the past...paradox issues or not...

sounds like it.. I mean the idea is cool, but going on 3 episodes of them just beating the hell out of her is just kinda getting old.. either kill her off or let her become one of them already..
