Whoever you ARE, YOU'RE A FUCKING genius! No other website holds a candle to your insights and brain power. Who even understood "Westworld" until you were kind enough to explain it to all us cave men. The final episode was beyond disappointing. And I'm sure you felt it deeper than most. But where's our wrap up video? You were professional enough to do your Q and A but it "Wasn't Me". so I'm waiting, alone, in the dark, for the grand exit. I presume you felt it was so bad you said "Fuck It". warmly TLC

Alt Shift X so no more video wrap ups? Just live feed of Q and A? Why? It’s impossible to participate. This is the single greatest web-site, but you’re turning it into a podcast. Am I out of line or do others feel the same? Peace, and many blessings.

Fine, but for the rest of us, please leave your superior wrap ups. These live streams are too confusing. Way too many people raising their hands at once. And the other half fooling around. In the meantime, please get Jamie a dragon stone hand for the battle. Peace

7:32 I'd just like to point out that you cant smelt obsidian. It's just not possible to make sturdy weapons from the stuff and flintknapping is the only real way to make weapons with obsidian. But they've had historical inaccuracies with forging before, like when Ice (Ned Stark's sword) was melted down and poured into open-top sword molds, which is not how swords are ever made.

great vid i know your trying not to be to critical in these but I have to admit it seems a little weird when you take the time to point out Sansa mentioning food as a problem but not that they don't ever bring it up again or that deanery's says the dragons aren't doing well and can't get enough to eat despite clearly having just eaten and showing no sign's of any issues outside of her comment . Or the fact that you even talk about how in the lore of the book dragon's can't go beyond the wall a plot point the show totally shit on by having Dany save jhon with her dragons beyond the wall. There is a lot wrong with this season and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about don't be afraid to bring it up

I actually come closer to believing the show will end with the story being told, by probably Sam, like some have guessed, because the intro reflects this device suspended above in the citadel, whose maesters write down and keep history. The device displays history, which indicates each episode is a chapter of the story being told. That story could be told by anyone, but I think it will be Sam, because he mentions writing down history, while at the citadel, in the scene where he responds to the grand maesters work not being poetic. Game of Thrones as a title, is rather poetic. Something Sam would most likely title his book of history.

My theory is that the crystal that turned the Night King into the Night King is still around and will play a role in the next 3 episodes. I don't see why it wouldn't still exist, kind of a plot hole if it doesn't.

Dragon glass is not obsidian. You cannot cast obsidian the way they do in the show. Dragon glass also appears to be far more durable and less brittle than obsidian.

12:17- Or the true head of the Iron Bank is actually a dwarf like Tyrion- having heard of Cersei's own mistreatment of her brother and the execution of dwarfs in general; thus denies her out of justified anger. Cersei could ask the Night King for undead mammoths, but that's not as likely- though it is the closest that she'll ever get to having pachyderms.

As a kid we always welcomed tomboys. This was in the 90's. We never looked at them as much different from the other girls other than maybe they were cooler because they like the things we like. It was just one more body for any teams that we were putting together. The people that gave them the hardest time were OTHER FEMALES and they could be brutal. It's just like the myth that all men talk about are boobs and sex. I've never had a conversation with any male friend about either of those that lasted longer than a couple of minutes. Women on the other hand obsess over those things and project that obsession onto males. This narrative that's been out there for so long is bogus and old.
