Started this off the back of the chat thread, where we didn't want to disclose spoilers for those that have only watched the series.

What do you think happens?

Poor Jon Snow. Stabbed... to death? I think so, but Melisandra is at the wall. he'll be brought back. His vows to the watch ended since he died. I have a sneaky feeling he will be on the Iron throne due to his parentage.
(Rhaegar and Ned Starks sister (can't remember her name)

I really see Dany going the way of Mad King Aerys. I think someone will put an end to her the way Jaime did Aerys, possibly Tyrion. There is a lot of indication of the bond between the 2 brothers, i think both of them will be "kingslayers"

A big 'un - Eddard Stark, is he dead? I've heard theories that a faceless one took his place. Varys seems to be in control of a lot more than he appears (and he appears to be in control of a lot) I have a sneaking suspicion that these theories are right and he and Arya will meet up.

Have never liked Cat, dead or undead, actually thought Eddard was a bit of a naive holier than thou prat as well. The thought of Jon and Dany getting it on makes my teeth itch. I like the Lannisters for the comedic, dysfunctional mess that they are (ignoring the incest and pushing small children out of tower windows)

I think Jaime will sacrifice himself to save Brienne, there's that dream sequence he has where he is underground- I have to re-read and get my head around it.

If anyone also likes Arrested Development there is a great site called Arrested Westros where they take screencaps from GoT and add dialogue from AD, some very funny results.

oh I love Arrested Development. will go have a look!

Awesome thread, but it makes me realise I really need to reread A Dance With Dragons as I am struggling to remember a lot of it...!

I think Jaime will be the one to kill Cersei... no idea why or how, but she is so convinced that Tyrion is going to be the valonqar (younger brother) who kills her.

I'm not convinced that Aegon is the real Aegon but I kinda want him to be. I love the Targs and would like to see them back on the Throne.

I don't believe Jon Snow is dead, he has much more story ahead of him, but I like the idea that actually he does die from his wounds (they sure went to town on him!) and that Melisandre brings him back!

it would make sense if he died Misery, as then he would be released from the Black Watch.

Interesting one about Jaime, think you could be right. I think it would be fitting as well.

miserywaterfall Sun 02-Feb-14 12:21:59

Ooooh true ZombieBelle (love your username btw!) I really want good things for Jon, even though he's a bit of a whiny character.

Who do you all want to see end up on the Iron throne?

I am a sucker for that Jon and Dany theory, despite it meaning incest, haha! In Cersei's prophecy it's said a 'younger more beautiful queen' will cast her down, and a lot of people take that to be Margaery Tyrell, but it would be awesome for it to be Dany!

ZombieBelle Sun 02-Feb-14 22:30:31

I really want Margaery Tyrell on the throne ;)

TBH, i think it will be Jon in the end, I don't think Dany will make it.

HarpyFishwifeTwat Mon 03-Feb-14 03:20:35

I'd love to see Tyrion on the throne, although I've always had a soft spot for Jamie despite his incest and throwing small children from high windows.

HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs Mon 03-Feb-14 04:25:19

I'm scared that I like Jon too much, which means he will surely die. And I want Jamie to end up with Brienne.
That's about all I can remember. Will need to re-read before the next one is out >in ten years time<

TheNightIsDark Mon 03-Feb-14 12:28:45

Cat is an awful character. Absolutely awful. Cannot find one redeeming quality in her. Perhaps because of how she treated Jon though!

Trills Mon 03-Feb-14 12:42:32

Family, duty, honour.

In that order.

That's the Tully way.

Unless you go completely bonkers like Lysa.

TheNightIsDark Mon 03-Feb-14 12:45:03

Lysa was bat shit insane. She's my favourite of the sisters. Which kind of shows the depths of my hatred for Cat.

Maybe there will be a gay love twist. Tyrion and Jon take the iron throne together grin

TheNightIsDark Mon 03-Feb-14 12:47:36

Where is this Ben and holly parody? I need to see it.

I'm rereading the first book. I'm hoping it's magically changed and lovely Ned survives.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Mon 03-Feb-14 12:48:16

Jon isn't dead-he will be on the iron throne. Could hook up with Shakira Dany
Bran rides/controls/is a dragon-becomes maester.
Jamie realises what a twat he has been-leads kings guard
Tyrion-becomes hand.
Not discounting Arya or Sansa.
The Greyjoys get theirs.
gendry-he'll be back
Melisandra and co-defeated, disgraced and burned (I hope)

Badvoc Mon 03-Feb-14 13:15:54

Agree about cat.
I saw Charlie brooker describe Justin Bieber as "the king Joffrey of pop" the other day.
Pmsl smile

TheNightIsDark Mon 03-Feb-14 13:17:41

grin Me and DP call Joff the snivelling little cunt. The Bieber comparison is brilliant!

Badvoc Mon 03-Feb-14 13:19:20

Oh, he is vile isn't he!?
That actor will never work again!

Badvoc Mon 03-Feb-14 13:19:45

Oh! Forgot gendry!

Sheldonswhiteboard Mon 03-Feb-14 18:37:08

I think the actor that plays Joffrey is giving up acting after GoT, shame he plays the little git very well.

And he was such a little cutie in batman.

ZombieBelle Mon 03-Feb-14 20:40:15

the actor that plays Joffrey is amazing. GRRM has even written to him congratulating him! But then, I actually prefer Joffrey to Cat!

Am I the only one who doesn't hate Cat ? grin
I know she was a bitch to our lovely Jon Snuuur, but I don't dislike her, saying that I don't dislike Cersei either.
Talking about a secret gay story line, has anyone seen the
Nedbert theory. . Lots of other interesting theories in there too.

Oh confused don't know what happens there.
working linky.

MegBusset Mon 03-Feb-14 21:29:59

I really wanted Sansa and Tyrion to fall in love!

miserywaterfall Wed 05-Feb-14 14:16:52

I don't hate Cat, I think she just made poor decisions in certain situations, like most of the Stark family to be honest. Though her behaviour to Jon was vile sad I love her as Lady Stoneheart, way more interesting, haha.

How is it possible to prefer Joff to Cat?! grin

Meg I wanted them to fall in love too! In the show there were tiny glimmers of hope for them, which I thought was nice. But in the books... not so much.
Littlefinger is just gross, worrying how that storyline is going to end up... though he did get rid of Lysa for us so I guess he isn't all bad wink

Does anyone have any thoughts re Jon's parentage. There is a very popular theory that he is the son of Lyanna and Rhaegar.
