I do think those dragons are gonna be getting dispersed soon or new ones are gonna come into the fold. With Bran back inside the 7 Kingdoms as the three eyed raven I can see him controlling one to go into battle with. I'd expect Cersei would NEED to get a dragon from the horn to stay competitive - I kinda doubt it'll happen though.

Lol these books aren't coming out dude...GRRM is dying before the series finishes in books. The show has surpassed the books by the way.


I know it has, but I'd expect the books to be different than the series. People have been saying that George isn't going to make it since the 90s. :lol: It's a huge issue with him.

They will likely setup a battle on the sea by Dragonstone where Euron will take someone hostage for Cersi. The Greyjoys are more like pawns that Cersi is using rather than a real big threat.

No but there are ways they can be acquired. In the books, there is a horn that can be blown to steal a dragons loyalty - I think it kills you or something when you blow it. I was referring to that item, as well as the Stark innate ability to warg into other animals being a factor in Bran being able to warg into a dragon considering he is the strongest warg alive. (Unless Ned is still alive, even still Bran is probably better) - If both theories play out then TECHNICALLY the three dragons can be divided between the Greyjoys, Starks & Targaryans. There is also a rumored Ice Dragon that would be cool to see - I'd assume it would belong to the army of the dead but who knows maybe Jon ends up riding that mofo into battle or somethin...

I always still find it VERY strange that all of this is so mainstream. I used to work in a book store in 99, and would hand sell GOT to people constantly. Kind of feels like 90s hip hop to me.

The Greyjoys will be among Cersei's last allies and her hail Mary attempt to stop the oncoming onslaught.

The Greyjoys have also been building up too. Daenerys and Jon aren't the only ones.

The Ice Dragon will likely go to Jon or the Night's King.

The Greyjoy storyline does get more important towards the end of the last book, but without "Winds of Winter" hard to know what the actual end game is. However, what is happening here is in line with the book to some degree.

You can still watch a season or two. Those when they try to fallow books closely are great.

Now its slowly turning to schit.

In last episode they added a scene with ED FREAKING SHEERAN. So cheap..


Disagree, the show has been excellent recently as they move quickly toward a conclusion.

I think that is Jamie's point. Cersei is delusional if she thinks this is the trump card.

they're the best sailors in westeros, all they have is ships really. i didn't see all of dany's party arrive with her, so i think he's going to take them (theon, yara, ellaria) out for cersei.
