Yeah, I dunno, and I'm too busy to check. The guy who got roasted by the dragon? Or maybe the guy who Dany executed and pissed off the whole city?

That's an illness, not a death. I doubt it's going to progress so fast that the season six premier will have people talking about how it's too bad Jorah died. He could also be sent off to live with the stone men. I don't know if that counts as death or not. Also, we know of at least one case where it was cured. Maybe Sam will end up curing it when he becomes a Maester. Who knows? If not, it gives Jorah the opportunity to heroically sacrifice himself. At some point this show has to let at least one person make a heroic sacrifice instead of just being butchered . . . right? :noclue:

Well, you not being you it kinda is to me :noclue: Plus, it's contagious. He might be off'd. Who knows...
Honestly, I'm getting tired of him. Or maybe I'm still resentful about Jon's death.

Jorah didn't die this season. It didn't happen. There's no way in hell that we're not going to see Jorah next season, though maybe he could die next season. Hell, anybody could die at any time, except maybe Dany, but with Ned and Jon dead, anything could happen. I still can't believe Jon's permanently dead. Maybe he'll be reborn as another being in season 7 or something. It just seems really weird.

I didn't mention Shireen because I was only listing people who died in the finale.

Jaqen H'ghar? OK, but he didn't really die because he didn't really exist. Apparently he's only a mask No One puts on, and anyone who becomes No One can become Jaqen H'ghar, as we saw right after Jaqen H'ghar #1 died and Jaqen H'ghar #2 appeared. So no one died, and No One died. Was it the same No One that was with Arya from the time she fled King's Landing? I don't know. I don't know if it matters, because by the time someone becomes No One, apparently they really are No One, with no identity other than that of a servant serving the Many Faced God. All of the No Ones seem to be interchangeable.
:scared: :noclue: :confused:


Isn't Arya also dead? Or some sort of undead? A life can only be redeemed by another, and then we see her lying there? And then she goes, aaah, I'm blind.

Also something about that wolf theory could plausible. If Jon is a Wolf, they don't need an actor to play Jon. Even if Jon Snow would go into the fire and come out as Jon Targaryan, he would still look like Jon Snow, no?

But if he's a wolf, then the bloodline is gone. He might as well be dead, what sort of character is a wolf?

I was most shocked by the death of Myrcella

I didn’t say he had, said he was pretty much dying, in my opinion.

He saved her with the help of maesters and maybe witches. But greyscale turns you into those things we saw in Valyria. Hopefully someone will save Jorah from his doom (if he lets them, because now that he's back inside Dany's circle he might want to).

I hope so too, Kit Karington said he won't be back next season. So that leaves a tiny bit of hope to me. And like intertwoven has said, he is kinda the ice of the song of fire and ice. Next season we'll have to know about what happened to Bran during the same time. So I'm really looking forward to this because next season will pass the books.

Game of Thrones could bring (SPOILER) back to life. Here's how
By Ben Kuchera
21 hours ago

This post contains big spoilers for Game of Thrones, and this is the area of the post where I use many words to make sure none of those spoilers end up on the front page. This is a picture of a zookeeper recreating Chris Pratt's Raptor scene to keep you busy until the story begins.

Ready? Spoilers ahead.

OK, so Jon Snow is dead. And actor Kit Harington has been stating pretty openly that the character is going to stay dead.

But c'mon.

This video does a good job detailing why it's so likely the character will come back, and all the different ways the books and show have set up scenarios in which it could happen.

Who was it that surrounded Dany at the end?

Was it a Khal?

Cause in the books she still has one follower of Kahl Drogo who is on her small council (and also goes on the search party for her)

:banana:
On Thursday, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo surprised Game of Thrones fans by announcing that the channel’s premiere series could very well extend to eight seasons, and possibly beyond.

“Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the [internal] conversation,” Lombardo told critics at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Thursday, in spite of the fact that HBO has held firm to the seven seasons number with press. “The question is: how much beyond seven are we going to do? Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven. [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] feel like there’s two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now.”

Considering the success of the series, Lombardo said that he is also open to a prequel spin-off.

“I would be open to anything that Dan and David wanted to do,” Lomabardo told press, “about Game of Thrones or any subject matter. . .It really would depend fully on what they wanted to do. I think you’re right, there’s enormous storytelling to be mined in a prequel, if [author George R.R. Martin] and Dan and David decide they want to tackle that.”

The last season could have been two seasons, or a longer single season, leaving in a lot of stuff cut from the books. Season five felt very rushed. I don't think they quite found the balance there between streamlining and filler. They erred on the side of streamlining and it didn't quite work. I mean, even without making it longer, they could have cut out a lot of that lightweight Dorne crap and include Stoneheart. That would have been so much spookier and less goofy.

I agree. Also, I love GoT actors crossing over to other shows/movies like Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) in Star Wars.

I've been watching lately a show called Ripper Street
with Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and the other night Iain Glein (Jorah) was in one episode playing a bad guy. I really recommend it. It helps me get through my GoT withdrawal.
