    I’m a big fan of yours. Just in case you haven’t done so yet, could please explain Bram’s vision to us, such as: can he only see things that have happened in the past, or could he also foresee things that are not happen yet? Thank you very much.

    Like how you guys avoided saying the old people we’re looking at Greyworm and Massandei because they probably never seen black people before, I guess race is a touchy subject. Also didn’t even mention it in the second video as well when Greyworm said there’s no place for “us “ here after Dany takes the throne. I like to believe you’re not that dense and just wanted to avoid the subject. It’s my opinion this was HBO way addressing the lack of poc in Westeros.

    • makasete30
      makasete30 21 day ago

      Well it’s based on Europe a few hundred years back. It would be weird to have POC, even in a fantasy, because it jars with our expectations of the setting, clothes, and people. It seems Westeros hasn’t discovered the land with Chinese people yet.
      But the reaction of the old people and children is perfectly natural, although ignorant, to strangers and completely different people you have never seen in your life.
      We even had bigotry in season one when before Syrio was killed he was called a “foreign bastard”.
      Race is a very touchy subject these days-people lose their jobs over silly gaffes and are painted as racists, but it is somewhat understandable in context: when you have a larger population of POC, who are looking for more representation in the media and in circles of power, there is going to be friction from those resistant to change, and those trying to enforce it, and from those overacting or avoiding it(in this case).
      Things will get worse before they get better as people adjust.

  • Hockey Culture Training & Systems

    Fairly certain that the area in which the Knight King was created was the Isle of Faces, and I believe that they are literally on God's Eye - the island in the middle of that large lank.

    The surrounding area looks very similar to Harrenhal.

    I think the Night King wants to go back to that moment and raise the Hammer of Waters on the whole continent. Eventually at least.

    I feel like it should be said that "who cares what the kids think." Kids in real life are not Leanna Mormont. Kids are stupid like we all were when we were young. Kids already basically run schools and that's why nobody is learning anything anymore.

    I do not think it is a message from The Night King. It is from his enslaved generals indicating how he can be destroyed. Burn the Weirwoods, "Burn them All."

    Good point about the children. But when they can put themselves in a role of responsability of people and watching them die then they can speak high.

    “(Castle) is yours, Your Grace” is likely a formal ritual welcoming a higher-ranked individual-in this case, a king or queen and acknowledging their rank. Essentially it’s giving Robert and then Dany full control of everything that goes on and making them the highest power.

    I think Jaime will play an important role. Bran didn't tell anyone about Jaime, for a reason. He mentioned that it was because that would prevent him from fighting for the living. Maybe Jaime will kill the Night King? I expect it will be Jon, but Jaime; the "Kingslayer" wouldn't that be interesting, they did conveniently give him back a Valerian Steel sword. Also, you mentioned the three houses; Stark, Targaryen, and Lannister being the important, main ones. Jon (poetically so) representing Stark, Daenerys representing Targaryen and Jaime; Lannister. As much as I like Tyrion, he has become more of a sidekick.

    the spiral pattern on the wall could actually be tentacles of an octopus or squid... maybe the drowned god is working threw the white walkers...destroy the world and only the strong survive... maybe the original white walker was from the islands... sure is cold at the bottom of the sea, where only blue light can travel... seems to make a strange sense to me... only dragons would be a threat to an island when you have the men and ships to defend it... food for thought :D peace

    Does anyone else share my opinion that, so far, GOT has been really anti-climactic? The NIght King's mysterious ends/goals? He doesn't really have any; just wants to destroy humanity generally. Bran? Just wipe out the memory of the human race. So, why does he need to do this now? Why is Bran as 3-eyed Raven somehow special? Couldn't he have returned any old time and killed any old 3-eyed Raven? And no resurrection on Easter. Seems that are deliberately setting us up for excitement just to defy our expectations. Like no elephants. But Night King's lack of aim is especially deflating. The fan fiction speculation has been a lot more interesting.
