    They didn't poison Jon. Littlefinger and Liza(? spelling) did, and it was about whether or not Robin was actually his son or not. That's why he kept saying, "The seed is strong." Completely fundamental to the plot of the show

    The only thing I disagree with here is that you said Arya had to denounce her Stark name to become who she is. That's completely incorrect the only reason she became who she is is because she realized she wanted to be Arya Stark and not no one.

    With the "Bittersweet" thing my prediction is that the white walkers will push John and all the other main characters down south and they will make a final stand and somehow John will kill the leader of the white Walkers and in the process die but because he has died before something will allow him to control the army of the dead thus meaning the white walkers win but so too does John.

    In a way, this lines up with Martin's past as a conscientious objector. The White Walkers are an allegory for the naturally occurring disasters and the strife that affects society which goes ignored in favour of petty conflict like war or economics.

    Everyone dying is a stupid conclusion. Why? Because it doesn't take into account all the actions/efforts Jon, Sam, the Brotherhood of Banners, and countless others did to rally people together and combat the real threat. The entire video conveniently leaves those things out to paint everyone as a great sinner who deserves Judgement Day. But karma works BOTH ways - good actions don't go unnoticed in this fictional world. When Jon suffered a knife to the heart 'for his people', he ultimately achieved his goal of uniting the Wildlings with the North. When Ned Stark had his head cut off for following his principals, he elevated himself into the status of Saint, even in the eyes of his enemies - he became the driving force for his children to survive. When Renly died because he was a popular just ruler and threat to Stannis, it pushed Brienne to act - this consequently led to her inspiring Jaime and reminding him about a knight's honor and sacrifice. Basically, all unjust actions were met with a just counterbalance.
    The whole 'everyone dies' conclusion doesn't work because it doesn't take this into account. It also makes watching the struggle of each character pointless because this means nothing they did amounted to anything anyway. Not to mention, GRRM has gone out of its way to show that history repeats itself - to provide a cautionary tale for future generations. The Long Night is no different. I'm pretty sure there were plenty of horrible, ignorant characters back then too. And I'm pretty sure everyone thought that the end of the world was going to happen and 'everyone would die' - except that they didn't since there WERE survivors. Therefore, just as we're seeing echoes of the first episode reflect on these final episodes, I suspect the conclusion will tie directly to the last Long Night's conclusion. Therein rests the bittersweet ending GRRM once talked about. Sure, we get survivors. But the knowledge that things are bound to repeat themselves, even if Jon lives and rules the Kingdom as a great ruler, the tales will be forgotten and that moment of peace will be brief and the next shitstorm will happen in due time.

    On a final note, GRRM has mentioned in countless interviews that he does NOT care if the show ends similarly to his. "The show must go on..." he told one interviewee when he was asked if he'd change his story to be 'different' from the show. While he said that the way things go down differently, his story will ultimately reach the same conclusion. It makes no sense for him to compromise his plot points because of a TV show. No self-respecting writer would do this. Compromising a story for the sake of 'surprising the audience' is a poor excuse because, in the end, the story itself should be the priority. When readers already figured out R+L=J, GRRM said he would stick to his guns. it will be the same for the ending, even if the WAY it goes down varies.

    you need to look at this series from a darwinistic perspective, at first there was the children of the forest, man showed up and became the dominant species, white walkers showed up now, wiping all man kind and becoming the new dominant species as they are more fit to survive, humans won’t extinct, they will loose, retreat and regroup, learning from their mistakes they will evolve mentally and become the dominant species ones again...

    I completely agree, been saying this will happen for so long

  • Heidi Mota
    Heidi Mota Pred dnevom

    I think there's been few different themes overlooked. Themes that really flesh out a lot of characters. Things like entitlement, honour, and Identity is very important in the show and most prominent with Arya's storyline. Arya had to lose her claim to who she was and earn back the title. Identity with titles and power and rights is all over the storyline, but only Jon and Aryra, of all characters, started with nothing to get everything. Sansa too, in a sense, had to have nothing in order to have everything.
    Identity and entitlement are key.
    It's repeated quite a few times in the show where Cersei thinks herself like Tywin, but isn't, where Arya gives up who she is in order to reclaim it. Both Ned and Robb supposedly died honourable men, but both went back on their words and it led to their death. they felt entitled to their choices, but didn't think of the consequences. Because they were never stripped to nothing to have everything. They had everything and lost everything along the way.
    It's not so much an argument against institution, but an argument against entitlement. Putting yourself before you people is never the way to rule. Even Daenerys is guilty of this as she has this belief that she alone can abolish slavery. She has an entitlement that she has the right to rule. Cersei is the worst of all, from the first moment we see her she is entitled and spoilt by her awful marriage.
    Adaptation is another big key factor. Every character who has either lost everything at the start or has had a redemption period has survived thus far. Reason being is because up until now rules of the kingdoms has kept everything intact. These rules, when challenged, have crumbled. Instead of adapting to changes, those that strived to reinstate these rules have failed. Those that have adapted have survived. Cersei is a very obvious factor to this. She adapted, she overcame every obstacle, and she has become a force to fear. However in this last episode she has not adapted at all and is instead remaining with old tactics.
    I think the other thing about this video that gets me is that you seem so sure that the armies aren't going to band together, but if you look at history, alliances were made with enemies before during the white walker's rebellion. And not necessarily the enemy you think. Remember the Children of The Forest created the white walkers to protect them, and they turned on them. It would be so fitting if something similar happened again.
    To me personally, I think Jon will survive, as I don't think he has any need to be killed twice. Daenerys will live but her dragons will die and I wonder how many will follow her after that. Jaime will die by Cersei's hand, and Tyrion will kill Cersei. Arya lives along with Gendry, though I feel she would not be interested in being a lady anymore. Sansa will live, but I have a feeling she will cause someone else's death, possibly the Hound. Bran will live as the 3 eyed raven, and I can't really say who else ay live or die. but those are my predictions.

    The over praise for Renly is a bit much. I wish the show hinted more to the notion that Renly was an utter piece of shit who fought for himself & nothing else. At least Stannis did for some misguided sense of duty to Robert & the laws of Westoros. The corruptions of the Lannisters under Robert Baratheon would've just transferred to the Tyrells under Renly which is somehow perceived to be better but whatever.

  • Marcus The Mad
    Marcus The Mad Pred dnevom

    Perhaps that is how the novels shall end, but I agree that HBO would not approve of such a final ending. That being said, in spite of Karmic retributions the ideas of Karma swing in both ways. Jon Snow chose to stay at the wall instead of avenging his father and brother because he knew the white walkers were the real threat in exchange he became right hand to the commander. He made connections with the Wildlings but protected Castle Black from their invasion and was named the new commander of Nights Watch. He made peace with the Wildlings and allowed them to pass, even though he knew it would loose him nearly all support from his soldiers and was rewarded with a resurrection after their betrayal. They were hanged, Ramsey was eaten alive by his own dogs and King Joffrey choked to death in his mothers arms but not EVERYONE in Westeros are blowing up churches and massacring indigenous people. And if Jon is the Prince who was promised, then he SHOULD succeed in uniting the survivors of Winter and saving life itself. Though as the prophecy and Beric suggested in the last season, death will win even if the living fight anyway. And if and when the prince who was promised does fall, then as the prophecy suggests, so will mankind. According the theme you highlighted though, the actions taken SHOULD lead to most humans perishing but not everyone. To say every man is responsible for actions of some is quite nihilistic. How can your choices matter if everyone is judged for other people actions.

    That ending was my prediction at first. But Bran's purpose in the series negates that ending. He is amongst the most powerful force in the show, arguably second to the Night King, and has tremendous advantage in accessing past and present events and using that wealth of information to manipulate key moments in the current timeline that will nodge mankind favorably.
    The ending you propose can only work if Bran was out of the picture. How can you kill someone who sees everything past and present? and over time he gets stronger.

    9:36 curiously, democracy is more the norm in the world of ASOIAF. Most of Essos is democratic. Part of the reason people resisted Daenerys so much is because she dismantled democratic governments and named herself queen through sheer brutality. It's just Westeros that has defined traditions of feudalism.

    Jon is the best suited character to lead. Although he now knows he’s the heir to the thrown, before he never cared for being the leader that everyone looks up to. He never claims to deserve power and even says he doesn’t like ruling. He’s never voluntarily wanted to rule anyone, yet everyone chooses him when they think he’s a bastard and has no claim to anything. He deserves the throne for the simple fact that he doesn’t crave power.

    • Pietyr Ayday
      Pietyr Ayday Pred dnevom +2

      Or, perhaps: "valar dohaeris". In a way, both phrases mean the same thing. We've been told many times that Death is the many-faced god, and we've seen many of death's less obvious faces in the form of metaphors for death: becoming No One has been a recurring theme in more stories than just Arya's, for example. The death of first Theon, then Reek in Theon's story arc toward redemption is another example. In Jon Snow's story arc, Jon is told to "kill the boy" so that the man may live, shortly before Jon was stabbed in the heart. A part of Sansa died when her dire wolf Lady was executed, and a part of Bran died with his dire wolf and with Hodor beneath the Three-Eyed Raven's Weirwood Tree. And that's just the beginning: almost all of the show's surviving main characters have figuratively died in one way or another, and the rest must either join them in "bending the knee" to a figurative death, or die in a more literal sense, before the series ends. I think it's a safe bet that all the characters will end up "dead" before the series ends... I also have a feeling not everyone will realize it when that happens, or be happy with the fact that in this series, "death" has countless, subtle faces that are not always as easily recognizable as a beheading or poisoning....
