Was talking about Jaime with a friend and I had a thought. It would be ironic if Bran is the one who ends up defending Jaime.

Obviously, all the Starks are going to distrust him. And Dany most of all.

Tyrion will try to vouch for him, Brienne will try, but ultimately, it might be Bran who convinces everyone to trust/forgive him.

Would make that "stare-down" moment that much greater, with an entirely new context.


Totally agree.

My bad if already discussed, but in case anyone's also wondering about Ghost:

Random prediction I'm posting in the off chance it turns out to be true. So its a common belief that Jamie will kill Cersei. I'm gonna say Bran will warg into Jamie the same way he did Hodor and will make Jamie kill Cersei. It could be a revenge play but could also just be because Bran knows the future and knows what has to happen.

Stannis was probably the best military commander of them all, he just got snuckered by the chain and wildfire.
Robb Stark says hi.

Lost 0 battles.

So I re-watched Ep. 1 last night.

Anyone think that Arya's new weapon could be a kind of atlatl?

Looks like a sling handle on the bottom of the drawing, I don't think they have any other way of "launching" a projectile besides that (no springs).

Yup, but he's a dumbass oathbreaker who really thought he could just waltz into the Twins with his wife and say "Oh you can have my lame Uncle Edmure" lol

Yeah, i paused it during the episode and was thinking atlatl as well, or at least some sort of derivation of one.

Sorry if already discussed...but if wights can't swim, how did they get the chains around the dead dragon?

I saw someone talking about this and now I am confused.

Has this been posted? It's obviously not safe for work and has massive spoilers, but hilarious

What would really be useful is an IED with dragonglass shavings as shrapnel.

Am I the only one that's never heard of an 'atlatl'?

I doubt the Night King is worried about losing a few zombies to get the chains around the dragon. I'm sure he just made a few of them plop down into the depths and left them there or they could hang onto the chain as it was pulled out.

I'm going with a catapult launching wildfire to hold back the wights.

There's also the other kind of spoiler from leaks that most people want to avoid. That's why the question was asked. If you watch a season 8 ep 1 recap and are upset that season 8 episode 1 is spoilered for you, you're an idiot.

But sometimes these videos spoiler more than that.

Cool emoji. Why would anyone watch a video titled season 8 episode 1 anything if they hadn't watched the episode.

Nothing was obvious.

Calling anything spoilers AFTER said episode has aired is just confusing.

Exactly. No person with more than half a brain would call that a spoiler.

Did that actually make it onto the show, or is that an outtake?

oh for crying out loud - I saw a funny video, knew people were sensitive about seeing/reading/watching something they not know, and thought to give a heads up. Why is this a big deal?

Literally no one was upset you posted it or gave a spoiler tag. It was after your childish annoyed emoji for someone asking an obvious question.

Just clearing that up. Back to GOT discussion.

Depends when you were in school perhaps. I feel like pretty much every geography/history class started with the atlatl lessons. Unfortunately they weren't actual lessons on how to use an atlatl, otherwise they might have been more entertaining.

I guess not, but you didn't learn about American Indians then.

An atlatl allows for more force to be applied and humanly generated for throwing a spear.

There were some atlatls that had a sling you put around your wrist then would swing above your head in a circle and you would snap and hold the atlatl and it would "launch" the projectile. Could be short, could be long.

It was deadly.

We got to use an atlatl in my class. Was not easy to hit a target with.

But is she going to throw like a girl or let Brienne take care of it?
