Who currently has the Tarlys' valyrian steel sword? DId Sam give it to anyone in Winterfell?

Hopefully he'll choose a good fighter to hand it over to before **** hits the fan. Who is in need of vs? Jaime? Gendry?

I honestly forgot about the Tarly burning.
I'm sure Sam is going to love the fact that his kin was burned by his best friends new love interest

she did give them a choice... unlike the Mad King.

Sam still has it. I did see on one of the trailer breakdown videos that I watched that it looks like Jorah has Heartsbane. I could see Sam giving it to him since they already have a relationship from back when they were at the Citadel

Good call. And from what I see, Jaime took Widow's Wail when he left King's Landing, which I had totally forgotten.

Got a damn good MVP lineup wielding valyrian steel.

"I better live a long time because I have a lot of work left to do."

GRRM in no hurry. I think he's given up.

Yeah I don't think he cares anymore, and neither do I at this point. If a more passionate author comes along who can and will give it the written ending the fans deserve, all the better. I'm not interested in slogging through another Feast for Crows and Dance With Dragons again.

I rewatched the M**** scene in Season 5 and she doesn't mention anything about the Valanqor (just talks about her 3 children dying) - is it mentioned elsewhere in the Series? If not, that would mean the show runners could have her die (or not die) in other ways as well - correct?

yes, but they are likely to still have her killed by the same character.

Samwell Tarly fighting with Heartsbane is like giving Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber to Jar-Jar Binks.

Yes. but my theory is they would not introduce that waaay back then even if they wanted to use it. It would not be easily recalled by casual viewers. So why show it then, when you can just show another flashback later. Simply have Cersei recall a second visit to the fortune teller and show it when it is pertinent to the story.

But as the other poster suggested - you could also have it end the same way but not show the prophecy at all. Ironic fate as opposed to prophecy. Same result.

You make a compelling argument.


The Dany goes crazy theory reminds me of the Arya is the Waif theory. You have to really ignore basic elements of storytelling to think that's the way the writers are going to take it.

I don't think it'll even be possible to measure the speed with which I cancel HBO the second the last episode is over.

My hype for just the third episode: Battle of Winterfell outweighs my Endgame hype by about 100x.

What is the third episode? This from some sort of spoilers news?

It was from the EW article, but I wish they hadn't said. I'll avoid specifics and add spoiler tags.

She'd do it 'just so it can end already'.

Another question:

What the hell is a Azor Ahai? And the other one people mentioned?

Is that in the show? Or only the books?
Not a knock on aTmAg but this is why I don't think HBO is going to get super convoluted with the prophecy. Outside of book readers and really devoted series fans, the general viewing audience is not following it that closely. I don't think the HBO execs would sign off on ending (arguably) the greatest cable series ever with millions of people saying "WTF? I don't get it".


On the other hand:

I'm now solidly in the camp that Season 4 is the best of the show.

In many ways, 3 & 4 are one giant season, and it certainly feels that way. Many of the story arcs that end in 4 started in 3.

And most of the story progress happens in season 4. It's really solid from beginning to end. Hell, you get the Purple Wedding 2 episodes in.

And now, it's really clear to me that Season 5 is by far the weakest, because it's the one I'm looking forward to the least. The High Sparrow and Dorne storylines are just such a drag. Really, I just want to power through it so I can get to Hardhome, which is the high point of the season. And, at least the season closes out strong from there.

I have a feeling that Heartsbane will be handed to Jon(Aegon) and he'll send it through Melissandra to unsheath it from her glowing in fire and then battle the Night King to end the long night and fulfill his destiny as Azor Ahai.

But whatever happens I'm sure Heartsbane will play a vital role.
