      Does this mean you won't be doing a more-detailed analysis of each episode like you've done in past years?

      @Alt Shift X - I had a thought concerning the dragon horn Euron has in the books.

      Is it possible that this horn that no mortal man may blow that controls dragons, is actually a weapon of the White Walkers created during the long night? That the ancient Targaryens brought it back after the events of the long night to safe guard?

      Perhaps this horn can't be destroyed and can only be hidden. If the White Walkers were to reclaim that horn....

      What do you think of Looper's (et al) theory that the "old friend" Bran was referring to and waiting on wasn't actually Jamie, but Theon?

      Good Heavens, I remember when Alt Shift X was just a lil' youtuber [pinch cheeks].
      Look at how big he's grown! [scruffs hair].
      Can't wait for this season's review magic.
      Should be one for the ages.

      You included Hot Pie but missed Robin Arryn and Edmure Tully, whose actors are known to come back for this season...

        The line "Then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear" didn't really specify if it was going to be a woman or a man. It could literally be anyone in the cast, I think, and not just limited to Daenarys, Sansa, or Brienne.

                          its funny you should mention Davos' love for shireen and to a lesser degree Gendry over his son who became fully indoctrinated into Melissandre's bs about Stannis

                                        It's always amused me that those who violated their own oaths to the Mad King give Jamie so much grief for doing the same.

                                          I understand Lyanna was supposed to marry Robert, but why couldn't Rhaegar and Lyanna just say "Hey we're in love, sorry Robert, sorry Elia, that's just the way it is" and make it clear Lyanna was not abducted. Robert and the Martell's would've been pissed but that's it, I don't think it would've led to full on rebellion, even if Aerys was a bad King.

                                                                                  • flint park

                                                                                  • Curious Dev

                                                                                    right....alt shift x gives the best commentary episode analysis, and his voice makes it even better and isn't as cringy as most game of thrones reviewers.

                                                                                • Sylvester Curry
