Piling up a few words over 3 sylables incoherently is not enough thorthoth. Words have meanings, grammar is important too.
Now with those words try to express yourself a little bit better maybe making a few more sentences. We are all expecting to see some progress here. You're the man!!!

That's modern English, Betiko. Deal with it....

I wouldn't normally bother but since betiko is kinda slow and pitiful, here is the quote run though Google Translate:

S'il vous plaît les gens, vous êtes tous juste marketing ciblé, des créateurs de fantasy anachronisme soft-porno UNcreative.


Yes there is a slight shift in meaning but it still gets the thrust of my argument across admirably.

Patches,I didn't press on your major spoiler thing, don't tell me what it's about, but I'm just curious... where did you get a major spoiler from? I'm pretty sure none of the actors nor crew members on set are aware of the scenario. I'm pretty sure they went as far in the paranoia that they even direceted/are directing multiiple endings.

can we even discuss things with you, or you know such a big and reliable secret that you might spoil us by mistake if we go too deep in a conversation with you?


I don't know anything for sure, not in the slightest. The super spoiler though, is a theory, and it's the most logical theory that fits. I don't know if it'll come true, and it'll be the absolute last scene of GoT if it happens. If it happens, that'll be it, the perfect ending for the series IMO. After the final episode, come back here and see if I was right or not. That's what is fun about this, just to see if our instincts are right or not. Nothing else.

All my predictions are based on only what I think will happen. I might be completely wrong on every single one of them, except Cersi, I'm pretty sure we all know that Arya gonna kill that bitch.
I'm not even sure that The Hound will be the one who kills The Mountain. Something the Hound said when he talked to his zombified brother at the Dragon Pit makes me think that someone or something else ends the Mountain. But I see it as justice and positive Karma if The Hound finishes him, IMO, which is what I'd like to see.

Basically most everyone is gonna die before the final episode, that's pretty much a given, but a couple of the characters are gonna make it through. Which ones? I have no idea. Varys fate bugs me, I think he's gonna die, Melisandre said he would, but for the life of me I can't be sure exactly how, who or when. He might be just smart enough to get to the end alive, I just don't know.

My list is pure speculation. Nothing else. Everybody who watches the show has to have some sort of idea of what happens to these characters. I thought this might be a fun time capsule to dig up a year from now and see how we all did in our predictions is all.

This makes me wonder. The mountain is basically a semi-walking corpse already. If he encounters the white walker army, will he switch sides?

It depends on whether the Care-Bears and My Little Ponies can form an alliance with He-Man. Together they should be able to rescue Smurfette from Gargamel's evil clutches.

The Golden Company should be worrying.

A little backstory about the Golden Company. They are a private army that was first formed about 100 years before GoT takes place. They were part of the Blackfyre rebellion.
Their banner is a solid gold in color. Their motto is "Our word is as good as Gold" and their battle cry is "Beneath the gold, the Bitter steel!" The battle cry is a reference to their original founder, Bittersteel.
The number of troops in the Golden Company is 10,000. 8,000 infantry, 1,000 archers, 1,000 heavy cavalry along with some 50 or so War Elephants. They also have among the ranks of their archers a number of Summer Islanders who are considered the very best Archers in all the world.
In the show, Cersi says the Golden Company numbers 20,000 men, but I don't know if that's true or not. In the books they are 10,000. Perhaps in the show they are 20,000. Either way, they outnumber most everyone else.

The Unsulled numbered only 8,000 total when the Mother of Dragons first acquired them and they've taken some heavy losses. There really aren't any professional archer companies of note either in Westeros. Not like the Golden Company.

The Golden Company are bad asses, and they'll be portrayed as bad asses in the show. There is a story about the Golden Company, in Essos the city of Qohor refused to pay what they owed to the Golden Company so the Company went ahead and sacked the whole city in retaliation. So it's a bad idea to hire them and then refuse to pay them.

The Company is composed mostly of Westeros exiles. They are all skilled, quite familiar with Westeros tactics and arms. The Company is extremely well armed, equipped and trained. They are also by all accounts well disciplined, for a sellsword company at least. One of the few battles they ever lost was to Bryndon Tully and Barristan Selmy (the latter of which you should be quite familiar with from the show and the former you should remember as being referred to as "The Blackfish", who is now also deceased in the show).

So yeah, Cersi will have quite the advantage when she gets the Golden Company to fight for her.

In the books, Daenerys' brother, the now deceased Viserys, once hosted the commanders of the Golden Company hoping to persuade them to fight for his cause. The commanders ate his food, drank his wine and then laughed at Viserys and of course refused to fight for him because Viserys didn't have any money.

The only Kingdom that really has any chance of mustering up a force strong enough to challenge the Golden Company is the Vale. Though the best troops the Vale has are the Knights of the Vale, and I'm not sure how many of them there are, I don't think they have 1,000 of them like the Golden Company has. The Vale can, however, muster more than 10,000 men at arms if they have to, but they won't be anywhere near the quality of troops as the Golden Company. The Vale's strength lies in the defense of the Vale, which they are well suited to. In an open field though, they'll get chewed up by the Golden Company, whose Heavy Cavalry is comparable to the Knights of the Vale.

All the Kingdom's arrayed against the Company, well, that'll be a hell of a battle for sure. Maybe the Golden Company will be beaten, but they'll kick a lot of ass on their way down. They are going to kill a whole lot of the main characters. And they ain't gonna be fighting the White Walkers, that's Jon Snow, Daenerys and the North's problem. They'll be the ones bloodied fighting those horrors before they then have to fight the Golden Company. I doubt the White Walkers will even get past The Neck. But I suppose we'll see. Hell, Daenerys might not have any dragons left after beating the White Walkers, so the Golden Company might not even have to deal with those monsters either! But I don't know. Drogon is pretty fucking fearsome, but as bad ass as the biggest Dragon is, he ain't gonna live to see the end of the series, I'm pretty freaking sure about that. If the White Walkers don't kill Drogon, Euron or the Golden Company will, IMO. Without the dragons, the Golden Company is gonna be tough to beat.

That is quite possible. I guess we'll see.

No one is really sure by what process the Mountain was turned into a zombie freak, but it's logical to think that he might be pulled under the sway of the Night King's power.

Patches, the golden company will be slaughtered by the white walkers when they steal Euron Greyjoy's ships and land at Kings Landing

But then the whitewalkers have the Golden Zombie company with elephants, so John and Daenyris go north to the lair of the whitewalkers to destroy their power from there with the help of the first people or little people, those elf like creatures.

Why aren't there any elf whitewalkers?

I think they all got blow'd up. Their zombified parts are bringing up the rear of the zombie army. After all, bits of foot, fingers, kneecaps and such can't walk too fast.

Bullshit.

If there is any poetic justice in the GoT universe, then Jamie will kill Cersei by choking her to death with his golden hand.

Isn't that what the fortune teller told her would happen? That she would be killed by her younger brother? And the other two fortunes have already come true...

Excellent! You predict Cersi getting offed by Jamie. Valid enough prediction IMO. What about some of the other characters? What is going to happen to them do you think?

And the fortune teller. Meh, why does it have to be Jamie? Tyrion is also Cersi's little brother and he probably has a whole hell of a lot more reason to kill Cersi. Hell, the "prophecy" could be met if Cersi was poisoned by something called "little brother". The Brat King was killed by "The Strangler", maybe there is a poison call the little brother. Or even crazier, what if Arya was wearing Jamie's face and strangled Cersi to death? Would that not meet the terms of the prophecy? We know that Faceless men can on occasion take the identities of people who are still alive. The Waif (or was it Jaqen, can't remember exactly) was wearing Arya's face there in the death temple and Arya wasn't actually dead. There are a ton of ways the prophecy can fulfilled and still be completely different than what one thought it meant.

I wouldn't put too much stock in prophecies. Melisandre learned that the hard way. And the writers of GoT aren't too hung up on them either it seems, or continuity, or dialogue or logic or a whole host of other minor problems they've been having for the last few seasons. But that's a whole other subject. I just wanna know what people think is going to ultimately happen to all these characters by the end of the series.

But that's a whole other subject. I just wanna know what people think is going to ultimately happen to all these characters by the end of the series.

The reason I think it should be Jamie and not Tyrion is that she expects it to be Tyrion. She's been expecting that since the very beginning. She would never expect it from Jamie. He's her lover. But he has also witnessed her slide into madness, he witnessed her cause the death of their last child. Well, Idk how much he knows about that, but I assume he knows what happened. I think, well, hope, that he realizes the Cersei he knew is dead and this new evil(er) witch needs to be put down.

Yes, I suppose it could be Arya wearing a face. That would technically fulfill the prophecy. And yes, Arya has great reason to want her dead. But really, Cersei tried to spare Ned. It was Joffry that was a little cunt about it and he already got his. Arya has only got to kill a few of the names on her list, what's one more she misses?


As for everyone else, hell, I dunno. Of course I've always felt bad for the Stark children, so part of me wants them to survive all this. To possibly even come out on top of it all. But I'm skeptical about that. With the humans divided, I don't know if they can stand against the white walkers. Fuckin Cersei, I don't see why she can't put aside her differenecs and face the threat together then fight it out afterwards. Idk, guess we'll find out soon enough.

TBH, I'll be glad it's over. The first few seasons were amazing, but they've gone downhill. And last season was just meh. Everything seemed messed up. How the hell did John make it from the north to Dragonstone and then back to north of the wall within like 2 episodes? Whatever. The show was better when it had the books to guide it, is what I'm saying I guess.

I wonder how Martin will finish the books now? Surely they'll end differently than the show, yeah? Assuming he even finishes them, of course. Dude looks like he's a big mac away from a massive coronary.

I'm with ya on that! I think it was when the Sand Snakes were introduced and written stupid when the show really turned bad. The last few seasons the writing has been subpar, at best. The acting terrible, logic gone, etc etc.

I think he imight release the next book of the series, it's practically complete at this point. The supposed final book though, that's a pipe dream IMO. I don't see it ever being written. Maybe that's what's taking this next book so long, Martin might be trying to wrap the whole thing up in one book instead of two. Who knows, the books have been great, the show started great, now is meh, but I still wanna know what happens to the characters.

That's the season I thought it started going downhill too. The season before it was great. Oberyn was great. The buildup to his fight with the mountain was great. The fight itself was amazing. The whole subplot with tyrion and his father and hooker girlfriend, him killing his father, etc. All great parts. It was the next season that started sucking. Of course there are still great parts, even in last season. Lady Olenna being a sassy bitch and telling Jamie it was her that killed Joffrey was badass. Probably one of my favorite parts since watching Joffrey choke to death. (I never thought I would gleefully cheer for a teenage boy to be murdered with poison, but here we are...)

I think he imight release the next book of the series, it's practically complete at this point. The supposed final book though, that's a pipe dream IMO. I don't see it ever being written. Maybe that's what's taking this next book so long, Martin might be trying to wrap the whole thing up in one book instead of two. Who knows, the books have been great, the show started great, now is meh, but I still wanna know what happens to the characters.

Definitely agree with the underlined. Well, as much as I can. I haven't read the books, but as I said, I may have to. Still, everything was great. Quality has dipped over time, which from what I've heard, happens in the books too. But still, the world and characters he created are great and I care about them and want to see how it all ends. So even if there were three more seasons of utter garbage, I'd still watch it just to see how it ends. I'd be complaining the whole time though!

ok the first part was great but didn't have the battles.. then they started with a faster pace and you can't deny it, great battle moments. But at the same time you hate the Sand Snakes parts (me too; perhaps if Ellaria wasn't so ugly..).

I haven't read the books.. so I don't have something to compare it.. yeah, i've felt the last seasons have gone a bit too quickly without too much of a story behind, just as if at some point they thought they had a gigantic world with a gigantic web of plots and subplots.. and they needed to wrap it all up in 3-4 more seasons because some people involved wanted to get pregnant or move on with their lives.. or arya would grow a beard or something.

at the pace the show started.. it would've needed 10 more seasons after season 4 or 5 to finish at a similar pace.. i wouldn't have minded to spend one week watching it non-stop, but waiting a year for the next ep sucks. And I started watching it when season 5 was about to end..

so all in all, even though i feel you, that at some point the story started going too quickly and it didn't feel the same.. the battles have been great.. and let's wrap this all up in 12 hours of fireworks and incest and cruel slayings. I wouldnt mind the night king making cersei his bitch and maid to give birth to little whitewalkers or something, just before arya chops off jaime's head in front of her and then kills her with 200 needle pricks.

S'all good. Though this thread isn't about the GoT many faults, and there are many. It's a thread for predicting what we think is going to happen to these characters. It can be predictions of what you would want to see if you like.

So you pussies throw in some predictions! We got Nietz thinks Cersi is gonna be raped by the Night King before Arya stabs her with a sewing needle 200 times. Jamie gets his head cut off as well by Arya. I like those predictions! Now what about the rest of the characters?

So have some fun and throw in some predictions, ya bitches!

(Was undecided about what to quote and what not to quote, and in the end decided to just start tabula rasa.)

I totally agree with you guys that Season Four was the peak of the TV show, and Seasons Five and Six have been a bit of a disappointment. Nonetheless, I'm still enjoying the show. And here's my radical statement: for the first time in my life, I've found a show that's better than the books.

Here's some faults of each. This is roughly in order of importance (in my humble opinion)

For all its faults, the TV show is focused on the main plot. Every major character has a part to play which is somehow significant. The books just have too many subplots that contribute nothing to the main plot and too many minor characters that don't do anything useful. The books sometimes feel like he's getting paid by the word and just desperate to drag out the story a few chapters more. The TV show (partly out of necessity) eliminates dozens of useless characters, and merges others. Qyburn and Flement Brax are merged into one, the Thenns and the Ice RIver Clan are merged into one, Weese is eliminated and his death scene given to Ser Amory Lorch, Jenny of Oldstones and the albino witch become one, Edric Storm and Gendry are merged, The Kindly Man turns out to be Jaqen H'Ghar, Septon Meribald and the Elder Brother are merged together into Septon Ray, Melara Hetherspoon and Jeyne Farman are merged into one, etc. There's still several dozen significant characters in the TV show, but it's much easier to keep them all straight in your head than the hundreds of characters in the books.
Point: TV show.

The most annoying thing about the TV show is the near-teleport ability which you've already commented on. One episode Jon Snow is in Winterfell, next episode he's 800 miles away in Dragonstone, next episode he's gone 1100 miles back to Eastwatch, then he gets surrounded by the dead and sends a raven which travels back the 1100 miles to Dragonstone overnight. Okay, ravens are fast, but that was truly ridiculous. An even longer journey was the 1800 miles or so from Meereen to Sunspear that Varys did from one episode to the next. Other stunning teleports are Jorah Mormont from Meereen to Oldtown, and Littlefinger with the knights of the Vale from the Vale to WInterfell. In the book, at least, people need weeks or months to travel from A to B. This is the single biggest problem with the TV show.
Point: books

One of the my favourite improvements is that in the TV show, Euron Greyjoy sets his goal as marrying Cersei, whereas in the books he's trying to marry Daenarys. There's already like a dozen guys in love with Daenerys; having Euron crash the queue of suitors just contributes nothing. Having him go for Cersei was a huge improvement and actually did something for the plot.
Point: TV show

The whole complicated switcheroo around Mance Rayder, with Rattleshirt (disguised as Mance) being burned in the pyre to save Mance's life, never made any sense whatsoever to me. The other switcheroo, with the son of Mance and Dalla being swapped for the son of Gilly and Craster, made slightly more sense, but still not much. I'm really glad the TV show cut out both of those subplots.
Point: TV show

Samwell and Gilly. In the books Sam travels around with her for a year and half before he finally gives in and has sex with her, and then only because the ship's crew threatens to throw him overboard if he doesn't. It's just absurd that a young man and a young woman would spend that much time sharing quarters without their instincts taking over. I'm glad the TV show moved their relationship on a more realistic path.
Point: TV show

The murder of Myrcella: In the books that Sand Snakes plan to crown Myrcella Queen a make her their figurehead in the war on Cersei. Nobody ever planned to harm Myrcella. This whole episode is a stain on the TV show.
Point: books

The undead Catelyn Stark. One of the most pointless and useless characters in the book. I'm so glad the TV series decided to let Catelyn stay dead.
Point: TV show

Jon Snow's wolf, Ghost, is a constant companion in the books. In the TV show, he is rarely seen. That is a disappointment.
Point: books

The whole bromance between Jaime and Bronn. None of that happened in the books, and yet they make such a natural pair of best buds, that I think the TV writers really invented something good there.
Point: TV show

Just saw a post on facebook earlier that said the final season of GoT isn't going to air until 2019. It also said it was going to be six episodes, but that each episode is supposedly the length of a full feature movie.

No idea if that's accurate at all, but certainly hope not. Who wants to wait another year and a half? Lame.

Correct, exactly when in 2019 hasn't been announced yet.

Correct that it's six episodes. Not sure about the length of the episodes, but they will be longer than normal it is said. I don't know if they will all be movie length, but at least some of the episodes will be in the 1.5- 2 hour length.

It is lame we have to wait until 2019.
