      @Alt Shift X - I had a thought concerning the dragon horn Euron has in the books.
      Is it possible that this horn that no mortal man may blow that controls dragons, is actually a weapon of the White Walkers created during the long night? That the ancient Targaryens brought it back after the events of the long night to safe guard?
      Perhaps this horn can't be destroyed and can only be hidden. If the White Walkers were to reclaim that horn....

    How do dragons lay eggs in Game of Thrones? Did any of Danny's dragons lay eggs? Are there eggs petrified under DragonStone? are there any clues in the books or has GRRM release anything about potential more eggs in his world?

    RIP Dany. She was my favorite character in the show. She actually had a purpose unlike Jon who got resurrected for absolutely no reason.

      Disagree. He got resurrected to fulfill a prophecy. You're right though. RIP Dany because either Jon Snow or Arya is going to kill her. All the foreshadowing has been spot on so far.

    Because Alt Shift X waits for the last moment, steals ideas from other people's videos and peoples comments throughout youtube. It's the reason why I stopped watching years ago. Preston Jacobs and IdeasOfIceAndFire are the only ones worth watching if you want genuine content.

    how do you get so many things wrong is beyond me. just play episode and check, it is not hard to get your facts straight. example ? "Cersei is waging war against his (when you talk about Tyrion) family" ... where how what ? Cersei has all Lannister family (family members appart from two, Lannister army, Lannister everything) behind her. Tyrion is just Tyrion alone (yeah from episode 1 season 8 also Jaime but this is recap we are not there yet). So how is she waging war against Tyrions family if WHOLE Lannister family is in Cerseis' pocket ? This is just an example, you make misstakes like this with every character. anotehr example would be Jaime, who is his real love is NEVER been show so far, said or anything. He loved Cersei all his life and does he still ? We don't know. Brienne ? We see a lot of chemistry, respect etc but "true love" ? You read into things and present YOUR interpretation of things and false facts as recap, people watch your vid and get missinformed. Not cool man.

    Once this season, excuse me...once this SHOW is over, I would love it if you did a recap for each of the 5 books. Not Fire and Blood nor The World of Ice and Fire. Just the main novels. Its been so long since I've read the books, I've forgotten a lot of stuff, and I may be confused about certain events that took place in the show and transplanting them into the books subconsciously. I don't really have the time to read/listen to the books again, even though I want to. In place of re-reading the books, a detailed recap from you is by far and away the next best thing. At some point, Winds of Winter will come out, when it does I wanna be ready to read/listen to it immediately, and not have to slog through the very long novels again to remind myself where we left off. I'm sure that most of us who watch your channel love your videos and your meticulous attention to detail. So, once the show ends, you'll have nothing to tackle, in regards to GOT. A recap of the books would be a great place to start. Hope you do that, man. It would be awesome and very very helpful.

    Wow, you really thought Bran might warg into a dragon or see an important vision or a psychic battle with the Night King. Or have some sort of conflict within himself after seeing Jaime. When actually nothing happened. Bran did NOTHING. 😭😭

    ABOUT ARYA "NO ONE" STARK:
    Salt: Born after the Pax Targaryen, many teary days and nigths , witnessed the death of many family members
    Smoke: of her struggle to train
    Stone dragons: Saw dragons for the first time in centuries
    Blood: of the First Men, last keepers of the Old Ways
    Lightbringer sword
    Sacrifice: of her childhood to train so she could one day avenge the red Wedding
    Star: Born during that period or at least saw it
    15:10 No One is Azor Ahai
    No One is Arya Stark
    Ned is the Last hero, and Cat the new NissaNissa
    Banging her with the unsheathable Sword creates Arya
    Both die yet she lives to avenge the North's darkest chapter the RED WEDDING and
    Arya kills the Nightking and through it all the army of the dead.
    Thus Arya Stark No One is Azor Ahai
    NO ONE IS AZOR AHAI

    Cj Liu 27 days ago +1

    The line "Then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear" didn't really specify if it was going to be a woman or a man. It could literally be anyone in the cast, I think, and not just limited to Daenarys, Sansa, or Brienne.

    • LEDX Orchestral
      LEDX Orchestral 24 days ago +1

      Hello, same here. I theorize it will be her baby. I'm actually curious why noone else theorized this before nor the commenter. Or a dragon. They're also "younger & more beautiful" and Bran (worged into a dragon) or Tyrion (commanding a dragon like the early season teaser poster) are all the "younger brothers" who will stand up for the baby and cast down Cersi's inner ugliness and KO Cersi. So I think Cersi will just succumb to mental illness, try poisoning a baby (like she planned with Tommen) but fail and cursing everybody that she's protecting the baby from them. Warped logic.

    I understand Lyanna was supposed to marry Robert, but why couldn't Rhaegar and Lyanna just say "Hey we're in love, sorry Robert, sorry Elia, that's just the way it is" and make it clear Lyanna was not abducted. Robert and the Martell's would've been pissed but that's it, I don't think it would've led to full on rebellion, even if Aerys was a bad King.
