    I don't think we will get an explanation for why obsidian or valyrian steel kills White Walkers. Dragons are sometimes called "fire made flesh" so maybe the Walkers are ice made flesh and fire related objects just happen to be their weakness.

    If an obsidian arrow can kill a WW, those WW better stay out of battles, or they'll be somewhat easy to kill :\

    Well the question is, have they thought about making obsidian arrows to begin with? Did the author think about it?

    targs called dragonglass something along the lines of fire-in-rock-form. it kinda makes intuitive sense for this to annihilate white walkers. same with valyrian steel (need dragon fire).

    If I recall correctly, most of the weapons in the stash which was dug up at the fist of the first men were obsidian arrow heads in the books. Obsidian daggers were found there too, but were much less common.

    So, the end episodes in the series are obvious to me. The WWWW pass the wall crushing everybody with his ever growing zombie army, then in the last moment when everyhing seems lost and Jon is almost heroically defeated, Sam, aka the library fat rat, find an ancient book at the library explaining dragon fire = WW toast, send a letter to Daenerys (i think they have 24h express crows or something) so she send her three flying pets northward and the WWWW are turned into ashes in an eyeblink. Daenerys is claimed as queen and savior of the whole world, Jon is promoted to Hand and everybody is happy forever.

    Nice, isnt it?

    Does leave the loose end of "where do whores go" though :(


    I don't think the series (at least the books) will end particularly well for most involved, but I'll be surprised if dragons don't play a considerable role in the war to come.

    This is just pure speculation, but I keep imagining Bran will warg one of them.

    Yep, probably that was the writer's original plan before falling in a never ending politicwl thriller.
    The "You will not walk anymore but you will fly" prophecy would make a lot of sense.

    Of course there will be a lot of arbitrary deaths in the proccess, the big question being: will tyrion fall victim of syphilis?

    Bran is hiding at Castle Black. He entered Ghost's mind to protect Gilly and then entered Sam's mind to enjoy Gilly.

    I noticed that too, although I wrote it off to different lighting.

    I'm really surprised they did that--I figured the mother or priestess would be responsible and not him.



    Final scene in Mereen there was really well-put together, if a bit deus ex.

    Stannis tag removed :(

    The director of this episode is called Nutter, btw.

    Does Shireen even die in the books?

    Edit:

    "The knight hesitated. "Your Grace, if you are dead — "
    " — you will avenge my death, and seat my daughter on the Iron Throne. Or die in the attempt.""

    lol :(

    Holy ****. Stannis can burn in hell.

    No. At least as of the last published book.

    I think there will barely be one more season of this. Too fan-fic plot by now.
