In the books got 10 plotlines locations
dany
Young griff
Dorne
Kings landing
The riverlands
The vale
The iron islands
The north
And the wall and beyond
And arya
Now 5 of those I think will converge

Young griff will kill cersia and tommonlen and defeat lannister rule of kings landing

Dorne will support

S ansa will marry him and little finger will become hand to think king after Jon conington dies.

Brienne will die in the river lands, to save Jaime, Jaime will return to kings landing, kill Cersei, then go to the wall and become the 1000th and final lord commander

Stannis beats the boltons will either die to the other or to dany

Dany will have 2 villians before the other, young griff and euron

No idea how arya will factor besides killing lady stone heart.
Is Captain Strickland the TV show version of Griff?

Why won't Dany marry (f)Aegon?

I'm still not clear as to whether that was misdirection for viewers (with no in-universe explanation), misdirection for Littlefinger (and his spies?), or the sisters actually falling for it (until Bran told them).
I thought that by the time LIttlefinger was telling Sansa 'I play this game where I think about the worst possible intentions of people' or whatever, and Sansa was smiling and nodding and going along with it, the show was revealing that nobody is falling for his nonsense anymore.

They have Bran now, he is like an instant lie detector. You can't bullshit around the Starks anymore for the most part.

The writers straight say in the BTS of that episode that the sisters were fooled by LF until they realized they could tap into Bran to learn the truth.

The fact the Second dance of dragons is already teased by grrm and the mummers dragon vision

In universe I feel Aegon will be high off his his victories is essos fall for Sansa and buy into Little fingers schemes

It will take dany a while to get to westeros

Probs the 7tb book ( which won't be a dream for spring that will be the 8th book...)

One can hope. But I doubt it, it’d be nice to have an actual reason that it was the Golden Company, but considering the Blackfyres were never established in the show, it’s probably just a shitty name drop.

They really should have done fAegon instead of butchering Dorne. Even in the books, Dorne felt pretty minor, and just a supporting story for Dany and fAegon. Basically just showing Dorne playing both sides of the Dance of Dragons 2.0. Quentyn died anyway without making a single difference, and maybe Aurienne actually does something interesting for fAegon’s plot, but I doubt it.

Aside from needlessly long dragon riding scene and Theon’s super easy rescue of Asha, it was a solid episode.
The earned reunions outwayed the more fan-fictiony parts.
I think the ease of Yara’s rescue make sense. Euron was preoccupied with Cersie and no one would expect Theon to step up and try a rescue attempt. Plus, she isn’t really a major target outside the Ironborn world.

My problem with Sansa's role as being the smart one is that she hasn't really offered much strategy besides being highly suspicious of everyone. Saying "This is a bad idea" a million times while offering no counter strategy is poor leadership.

So looks like there will be a Jamie trial next episode, but there's no way that he DOESN'T get bailed out by Brienne, right? His moments of honor were significant in setting in motion the events that led to the Stark family being reunited. Also Tyrion is there and can vouch for him too.

Yeah the whole sansa is now a genius super brain is a bit hard to swallow given all the Arya/LF nonsense from last season.
She's not though. She learned a lot but still lets her emotions get the better of her sometimes.

No. Some of there are good theories with lots evidence but some of these are just things you want to happen rather than anything with substantial backing like Sansa marrying "Aegon" or Brienne dying in the Riverlands or Jaime becoming LC.

(Also Martin isn't even subtle about Arianne and "Aegon" hooking up. People just want Littlefinger to team up with Varys)

I think little finger and varys in-fighting under him will be what takes him down
