      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].

    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.

    Ok....meta reasonings, but I don't think Dany will win the throne, maybe the best outcome for her is to go back across the sea to ensure her brave new world metamorphoses correctly. But anything could happen, but worst case scenario is that she looses her perspective.

    Only thing i really dont like about this channel is how long it takes to release a new video. I know its a lot of work and it takes time (and you don´t owe new video to anybody), but I feel like you are doing this on purpose for some reason and its pretty damn annoying.

    • Sergiu

      In a way it's a good idea. He releases the video closer to the next episode so it can be fresh in your mind. Dude puts forward a theory and if its correct, you might notice it easier on Sunday. I give props to the guy, it takes allot of work if you don't have a big team, i wouldn't have the patience to make these huge storyboard type videos.

    So I was just rewatching this episode and I noticed three interesting new images in the intro/theme song sequence. They are quick and subtle differences. I may be reading to much into it, but they could be important. The first is at Winterfell, when it takes us down into the crypts. While going through the torch lit corridor, where all the statues/tombs of the fallen Starks are on each side, there is only one statue that we can actually see with light. All the rest are completely dark. It appears to be a woman...maybe Lyanna? Second thing I noticed was that the carved face on the wierwood tree looks different than the previous seasons. It appears to be a rounder, fatter face...and call me crazy, but I feel like it kind of resembles Sam! The third thing I noticed was on one of the rings of the astrolabe. It shows a set of three figures. To the far left is a lion with a dark fish in its mouth. I’m guessing that either refers to the Lannister’s crushing the Tully’s and/or Blackfish. Or possibly instead of a kraken, they use a fish as a more subtle hint of the Lannister’s (Cersei) crushing Euron and the Ironborn. To the far right appears to be a White Walker with a dagger in one hand and the head of an animal in the other. It’s either a wolf or lion head!! The image is fast and not the clearest, so I’m struggling to tell which one. Then in the middle is a figure or mashup of figures hanging from a rope. I took screenshots of everything I mentioned. Let me know if there’s anyway I can send them to you. I’d love to get your opinion and interpretation!

We know he’s seen into the flames so it would be good to see him overcome his fear of fire and death to kill his brother

    By the way ALT Shift X, Robert was never an idiot, He only because a drunk after he was king, No more wars and probably despises politics, so he became a drunk and left all the ruling to the small council and the Hand of the King.
