I predict winter finally gets here and the dragons don't like the snow.

No. Because the next book to be released is the next to last one.

WINDS OF WINTER is next. If we're lucky, it might come out some time in 2019.

The next (and supposedly last) book is A PROMISE OF SPRING, which I expect will be finished by Brandon Sanderson and published some time around 2028.

Didn't the Night King already cast a replacement for himself? 1 of caster's baby boy. The baby was alive and was turned into a walker. Maybe this process is different than when a dead body is reanimated by the night king's magic.

tiddays!

Time to revive this thread! The final season starts in April. HBO is running promos, with "fire" and "ice" sweeping over Westeros. We've been binge watching past seasons over the Holidays, so I'm in the mood for a return to the Game!

Remember to use the spoiler (show/hide) function if you want to share "secret knowledge," so those of us who don't want to know what is going to happen can read this thread without being surprised...

At the start of the new season I'll start up a Season 8 thread, unless somebody else beats me to it.

In preparation for the coming final season, I started to marathon my way through the DVDs to refresh my mind on all that has come and gone. I'm a few episodes into season two at the moment, and watching season one again raised some questions.

1. In the first episode, where Ned Stark executes the deserter from the Night Watch, how did that guy wind up south of the wall? He and the two rangers who were killed by the White Walker, were patrolling north of the wall, but the deserter was captured south of the wall. Wouldn't he have had to return to Castle Black to pass through the gates? And if he did, wouldn't he have reported the White Walker to the Watch commanders?

2. Gendry flees King's Landing with Arya and the Night Watch recruits, but how did Gendry know to flee? I did not see any scenes where he was warned by anyone that Joeffrey was slaughtering all of Roberts illegitimate sires, plus at that point he didn't even know that he was of royal blood.

Anyone know the answers?

I'm rewatching it too with my mom! I wondered about #1 also but I remember also the Wildings later in Season 4? attacked a village that seemed around the Winterfell area. I maybe wrong but I remember thinking how did they bypass the wall.


Good question on #2, I remember him leaving in a hurry but the reason was never clear.

I assumed it was Ned Stark who arranged for Gendry’s Boss to sell him to his friend who also spirited Arya out of Kings Lansing.

It never explained in the TV show.

In the book, someone arranged to get him to safety. It's never stated outright, but the narrative hints strongly that it was Varys, who is fostering all sorts of replacements for Geoffrey and the Lanisters --- some of which never made it into the TV show.

The show has left the books far behind. Anyone with "secret knowledge" is either working on the show or lying.
