GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8--Final Run-- Part 2

With the Night King presumably vanquished the threat of the long night will be over. The wall becomes unnecessary.

Unless he escapes back to the north to regroup and return in a few thousand years. By that time the prophecy will be about "The prints that were promised" and people will be awaiting a bunch of Warhols.

Maybe the Nightking will claim Cersei as his ice queen, and they'll go on a very long honeymoon back beyond the remains of the wall.

Seriously though, if next episode the attack is on King's Landing and not on Winterfall, that would be a huge bait and switch. They've also been playing up the 'safety' of the crypts so much, that it is almost too much on the nose for them to be attacked. I keep wondering if all this was just a massive red herring, and that they pull a huge twist in the next episode.

She's too cold even for him.

I almost said that King's Landing was way too far for his army to get in the amount of time Tormund gave, but then I remembered just how fast people move from place to place in the show. :lol:
 


Isn't there some prophecy that will have Khal Drago returning to Danerys?

"When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east," said Mirri Maz Duur, "When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before."
Maybe beating the Night King is what alters the world in such a manner that this curse is actually a prophecy. That might mean she and Jon won't stay together.
And she did mention her first husband already this season.

Though there are many possible interpretations, and they don't have to be even remotely as pleasant. ;)

I don't think that is really a prophecy, just her kind of telling Danny off.

How does Melissandre and the prophecy of Azor Azhai factor in?
Will Jon have to plunge a sword (Heartsbane?) into Dany's chest in order to fulfill that prophecy and defeat the Night King?
Remember, Martin has always said the ending was going to be bittersweet.

- "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east" : This was long thought to be a reference to Quentyn Martell, but they haven't even shown him on the tv show. Trystane was on the show, but he traveled south to north, so the whole thing is problematic. I suppose they could argue that Trystane began his journey from the western part of Dorne, and then his ship traveled to the eastern coast of Westeros where he died (and if we argue that then we could also say that it could refer to Oberyn instead).

- "When the seas go dry" : This was thought to be a reference to the Dothraki sea of grass dying, but again the tv show did nothing with that. It could also have something to do with the Ironborn (someone theorized Theon 'going dry' because of what Ramsey did to him).

- "and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves." : This could either be the fall of The Wall, or the fall of Gregor Clegane.

If the winter is long and cold enough, the oceans could freeze. That could technically be taken as "the seas go dry". Good luck to anyone surviving that degree of cold, though.

Or the other way around. Rememeber, in the books and maybe in the show(can't remember), Maester Aemon says that he thinks Daenerys is the princess who was promised. He thought that since dragons could change sex, the prophecy could also have been referring to a woman.
 

In the show, Missandei is the one that most recently articulated that. Not sure if Maester Aemon also did earlier or not in the show.

The dragon thing is an interesting question. Are the dragons the last of their kind, or will they lay eggs? Fire & Blood explains where Daenerys' eggs came from, so it seems unlikely that more will just be lying around at this point. it also mentions the sex-changing thing as well, but only as a hypothesis. There were wild dragons out there once, but the feeling I get is that they all had died out by the present time.

I would guess that the dragons die, but there's a final scene showing a clutch of eggs with one hatching.

In my mind the most likely to survive are: Arya, Sam, Tyrion, Sansa, Jon. Maybe Danaerys. Rey. Peter Parker. T'Challa.
