My bet is Varys



Ah, so this isn't really known?

Why Varis? What's in it for him? More power?


She's already suspicious of him and he tried on a couple of occasions to have Dany killed so I can see him playing both sides

As much as I love elements of this season, they have really been fucking up by having so many things happen so quickly and without the time to go into greater detail it just comes across as rushed. Previous seasons allowed for characters to have long interactions with each other, where as this season you get characters meeting up for the first time or meeting again after many years and they each get 3 lines of dialog, if that, before it's on to the next scene. Characters are traveling all over the place and nothing is shown with any of that. It's aggravating to me.

Episode 5 has to be one of my favorite episodes if not MY all time favorite. I have to disagree with you crater. Everything is aligning itself for the big fight. I guess since the books are like that (leaving a few characters during some books and then coming back to them way later, you get used to that).
P.S. Not even in the books we know about Benjen nor Gendry, so it's kinda exhilarating to know about them on the show.

We've had 7 years of that.

That's kind of what this show is, and has to be, with so many characters important to the story.

I'm loving this season. I'm just aggravated that it's so damn short.

My only advice to know more details about the characters would be to read the books :thumb:

I just want to know about Rhaegar's marriage annulment. So he did marry Lyanna Stark and Jon Snow is definitely not a bastard (not that I care).

By the way their plan they came up with is probably the dumbest plan ever.

Whatever, you get the whole suicide squad together.
For me the only dumbest people have been the Lannisters with their own zombie (ok not real zombie but you get it) and their evil doctor making the (failed) dragon slaying weapon. And now a baby coming? I'm very disappointed.

There was a lot of dumb in that episode, it rivals that Jamie and Bron in Dorne episode

Tyrion and Davos "sneaking" in to Kings Landing (a city preparing to be attacked) :dunce:

Never going to happen.

My imagination is not even a fraction as good as HBO's budget.

Now he has a legitimate claim to the throne, which means he and Khaleesi will get hitched and rule together.

:lol:
That comment was directed more at crater...It's just too many characters for such little time. I wouldn't mind if they started making movies instead.

Second time I watched the episode I found it funny that Tyrion didn't even try to hide behind a rock or something :lol:
But it was hot to watch Gendry using his hammer to smash skulls :cool:

Well as much as I like Danny, for me it's Jon all the way, even if he is kinda boring sometimes :noclue: I just don't see them ruling as a "couple" per se, as a kin...sure.

My asshole sister spoiled the fucking season. We were talking last week about this season and what we think will happen. I thought she was guessing/coming up with a cool idea. She goes "oh, no, I read that's what is happening".

Thanks cunt!!!!! Last episode set in motion her spoiler bullshit so she was right.
