Here's the moment that 5 of you have been waiting for.
To begin, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ5-vgFSQQs
Good luck ever watching the GoT show intro the same way again.
I'm well aware that this is out of the purview of a Braves baseball blog, but there are a lot of fans within this blog that can well-populate this topic. Also, it's the off-season, and despite an unsatisfactory BJ, it's still a slow process.
I will note, that at this point if you aren't fully caught up with the books then you might want to avoid this post in fear of spoilers. But with that said, for everyone posting spoilers please designate the Book that contains this spoiler in the title of the post.
I imagine that that the beginning of this thread won't even resemble the end of it, but here are some starting points.
What is the future of the Starks?
-Where is the Arya as a Faceless Man thing going in terms of plot points in your opinion.
-Is Rickon on Skagos as many theorize, there is also the Manderly angle here. I personally find him to be trustworthy considering what the Starks did for his house.
-What about Jon, consider this bit of the text:
"The flames crackled softly, and in their crackling she heard the whispered name Jon Snow. His long face floated before her, limned in tongues of red and orange, appearing and disappearing again, a shadow half- seen behind a fluttering curtain. Now he was a man, now a wolf, now a man again. But the skulls were here as well, the skulls were all around him."
What do you make of Azor-Ahai, the Prince that was Promised, R'hllor, the Great Other, the Three-Headed Dragon?
There is a lot to discuss about the prophecies of ASOIAF, so knock yourself out with that.
Apart from specific theories, feel free to critique the books as a whole and editorialize as you please.
It's a long off-season and "Winter is Coming."
