    So Sam got Gilly pregnant while he was at Oldtown, right? So while he still considered himself a brother of the Night's Watch and before the wall is destroyed and the Night's Watch dies? Sansa's not the only oath breaker revealed in this episode.

          Wait, people were already predicting that Bran would be king and Jon would become a Night’s Watchman again... before season 8? I thought those were the most ridiculous things to come out of this season. But now I’m thinking maybe the writers didn’t screw up quite as much as I thought...

            I just don't see why Jaime could've have just killed a dragon when he charged Dany in the last season. His character doesn't do anything afterwards, and we wouldn't have to have seen such a stupid reason to kill off another dragon.

                      OK it makes sense and I trust your word on it...But holy shit how did he manage to not at least accidentally fuck someone else given his status and looks.

                                The North has so many open lands now it makes no sense why the Wildlings would leave with all that open land and the debt the northern folk owe them.

                                          Jaime lord commander of the Queens Guard, left his real love Breanne to go try and save his sister the queen of Westros knowing he'd likely be captured and killed or die in kingslanding. His might be the most tragic ending.

                                                  Rant about Tyrion talking to Cersei: she's on the wall, he's not, yet he talks. TALKS. In fact, he almost whispers. Do you see how far they are apart? Can you imagine the wind on top of that wall? You'd need to shout if you want any chance at all of being heard, but no. He talked as if she was five feet away and in the same room. And when they cut to Cersei it is just as loud as it is two feet from Tyrion's face, but then with a magical echo, despite them not being in an enclosed space. That really bothered me.

                                                    First you got Bran on the throne, then Dany as a Mad Queen, Jon going behind the wall (and giving Ghost a pat!), Varys' execution and even hinted at Jon killing Dany. All theories of course until then, but they all came together

                                                        To be fair, I think that was one of the nicest looking shots in season 8.

Of course some people who alrdy knew the end were using the Odds to make some easy money. It kinda spoiled my "Bran reaveal". Still love your work AltShiftX. Specialy that BloodRaven and Prince that was promise Video.
