With no leaks left, Season 8 is wide open for predictions! Anyone?

I haven't digested season 7 enough for a really thoughtful prediction, THAT's why I NEED YOU BALDIES, YOUR INSIGHT TO GET THE BALL ROLLING!

Off the top of my head:

1) Danny will be forced to kill undead Viscereon, her beloved child, in order to kill the night king, which will happen towards the end of the season, as killing the NK will kill all the WW and the death of WW kills all the wights, the WW turns

There will be few living left. Not sure who they would be. Maybe, just like with Jon's parents, Jon and Danny will have a baby, and later Jon dies, before the baby is born, Danny dies of childbirth, but right before she asks, someone ( no idea who that might be) to take care of him or her.

Hopefully Cersi finally dies.

After winning the war against the NK, the dream of breaking the wheel is never realized. It's not Cersi who remains on the throne, but someone else, who is just as crappy.

That's all I've got for now.

Your turn :)

  • Two thirds into the season (episode 5 or so) Cercei will welcome the Iron Fleet with the Golden Company on board, only to find out that Euron has been killed by Theon and Yara (set free by Theon) and it's not the Golden Company but the Second Sons on board. That's the end of Cercei and the rest of the season is all about defeating the NK.

    Hmmm, I like that. What about the NK, westeros, the starks and Jon and Danny?

    I think the Golden Company storyline is how they get Daario back into the mix. He gets wind that the Lannisters have purchased the company and somehow infiltrates them or convinces them to switch sides ... or something. He has street cred with sellswords over in Essos.

  • Triumph over the undead army and Cersie, but all of the royalty dies in heroic sacrifice leaving Gendry to sit the Iron Throne... shirtless as regent for Danny and John's child.

    Weren't the scripts for Season 8 leaked by some guy on a plane that happened to see them that talked about it on a podcast?

    Or was that bullshit
  • After watching the season 7 finale and letting my Game of Throner settle down, I had an idea for the first Game of Thrones mini-series spin-off; "Bron and Podrick go to Chataya's Brothel"  (the brothel where Ned Stark found one of Robert's bastards)  After Bron and Pod ditch the Dragon Pit and have a drink, Bron decides he needs to find out first-hand what is so special about Prodrick's "magic cock."   Upon arriving at the brothel, they learn it has been turned into a Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good by the late Queen Margery.  However, the custodian tells them of another brothel across town called the Lazy Eel.  Bullet points from GRRM include Podrick urinating and performing emergency, arrow-wound surgery, Bron crashing a horse-drawn cart and getting arrested, and of course a run-in with Neil Patrick Harris.  The finale would include both of them dragon-riding into the Lazy Eel, only to have Bron remember he lost all of his gold during the Fall of Highgarden.  NPH then shows up gold in hand to pay for their night of debauchery.

    If I was Emilia Clarke I would've said you're going to have to get yourself a new Daenerys Targaryen if you expect a girl to grind up against that Fabio knock off.

  • I'm thinking that instead of the night king attacking winterfell he's gonna ride his dragon straight to king's landing and try to make the million people living there his new army. Bound to be some already dead folk there he can raise to start and then it's just a matter of how fast those wights can kill the unarmed masses like they did at hard home. Would serve Cersie right for holding back troops and letting the north bear the brunt of the coming battle with the dead.

    it'd be a pretty good plan, then he'd have everybody else flanked if he had armies in the north and south...  but is there anything to reanimate if you use whatever the hell viserion shoots out of his mouth now against them?

    I think Theon will die trying to save Yara, and I think Euron will be the one to kill him. I think that Yara will somehow be released and will kill Euron once she sees him kill Theon.

    How would they get South without Jon and the Northmen engaging with them though?

    Not they. He. The night king can leave his army to fight in the north and fly south on his dragon to attack kings landing. Not exactly sure how his magical raising of the undead works but I keep thinking that death would spread through kings landing exponentially, especially amongst the common people who aren't soldiers or warriors and don't have dragon glass or valeryian steel like they do in the north. Struck me that a million people in realatively close proximity would be a tempting target for the night king, and defy our expectations as viewers as all the heroes are currently heading back north to fight because that's where we're being led to believe the fight will begin. Also would be cersie's plan absolutely backfiring like most of the other clever military strategies this season.
  • It's strange why Jon didn't even mention to burn all the dead in Westeros not to give the night king an advantage. That's quite an important omission, mind you. Cersie might freak out if they burn her dead children.

  • Cross post from the ep 7 thread. Fits better here.
    LordBy said:

    I think they've got more than enough plot for the remaining episodes. It may still be terribly rushed.
    1: Table Setting in the north: John/Aegon renunion with Bran, Arya, and Sam. Introduction of Danny as the ruler and explaining that to the northern houses, finding out about his true lineage, finding out about the wall breach, planning for war. Maybe Jamie arrives and that will have to be addressed.
    2: War with the dead while the Golden Company arrives in King's Landing and Cersie begins reconquest in the south. Probably some big losses in the north with death for some of our heroes. Theon rescues his sister with unknown consequences.
    3: Big set piece victory in the north with the defeat of the NK and deaths of several more of our heroes
    4: Battered armies in the north now have to deal with Cersi's armies. Maybe the Second Sons come over to help. Maybe Dorne comes back into play somehow. Maybe Clegane-bowl. All but a few of our heroes die in the eventual defeat of Cersie's armies and killing of Cersie by Jamie.
    5: Resolution. Winter is ending, most of the great houses are gone, who will rule Westeros or will there be some kind of remaining division between independent kingdoms, who will be the heir, will there be some kind of parliament for the people to have a say, is the wheel broken or do we see the seeds of another turn begin to sprout despite all of the sacrifice and good intentions.

    Still betting on Jaime killing Cersei then himself next season. One or both of Jon/Dany dies next season. All magical beings including the White Walkers and the Dragons are permanently killed off as are most magical characters so Bran is probably going to bite it. Arya kills Melisandre. Oh and Euron will die as well. Hopefully Cleganebowl.

    Strafing the screen here, in chronological order-

    1. Night King is going to be immune to dragon glass and Valerian steel.  We're going to get the puzzled look on Kit's face that we all know and love.  A companion of Jon dies in Jon's escape from the encounter, probably Tormund.  This should happen in episode 1.

    2. The North gets decimated, except for Winterfell.  Night King will pass over Bran.  Sansa is going to wind up being the Stark in Winterfell. 

    3. Cleganebowl happens and it's accompanied by an air horn, or trumpets, or something.  We need a quick resolution for the South to join up with the vestiges of the Northern forces.  Cersei will agree because Dany will still have her two dragons.  Sandor wins, but Sandor may have died earlier on and we find it's Arya.  Arya is quick enough to stab the hell out of Gregor through his eye slits.

    4. Maybe Jaime uses Widow's Wail to execute Cersei (at this point she would have delivered teh baby or miscarried) creating Lightbringer.  That will be effective on the Night King.

    If you go on Reddit they are leaks for each episode of season 8, but a lot of Reddit comments say they are fan fiction, totally fake. Infact Many break down the leaked material to show how none of it is a credible leak. Just some dude on Reddit screwing with people:(
  • DrKenDrKen Chicago
    Just as a warning, I had remembered that I'd heard a rumor about Season 8 scripts leaking so I took a look online.  These were updated prior to the airing of the final episode but I understand that the details for that episode have been out for a while also.

    Anyway, I took a look at the beginning of the Season 8, Episode 1 script and it tracks exactly with the end of Season 7 and where everybody was and was going.  So, I guess, just be careful.

    They may be total BS but I'm still going to try to tread lightly around spoiler discussions although if they truly are out and we have to wait 18 months, I might just say screw it and read them all because it would be impossible not to get spoiled.

    I think whoever wrote the season 8 stuff read or heard the spoilers from season 7 by that time.  They were easy to find.  I read the season 8 "spoilers" and know they're false because lots of significant characters die by episode 2.  I know that's not going to happen!  Sounds really epic though, and I think it's a fun read for the long darkness between this season and next.

    I hear you, just don't mention anything here. That goes for everyone who has already commented or plans to.

    I started a new discussion called GRRM News, where I asked all Baldies to post any news they came across about GRRM, HBO, everything and anything Game of Thrones related, so we could have a quick way to check for the latest and talk about the news we hear. You might want to try if anyone actually posts in it to get your got fix while waiting until 2019.

    Or maybe a new discussion could be started about season 8 leaks, but I'd send an email to Aron and Jim, beforehand.

    If Cersei is presented with the chance to rule the world forever as the Night Queen with a progeny that no longer need fear death, she'll take it in a final heartbeat. Her shorn locks, tiny Lannister crown, and black skinnydress are already suggestive of this outcome, design-wise. Tyrion's season-long contemplation of his family, re-ignited by Jaime's near-fricassee, fed by several reminders that his influence over Danerys is waning, (as well as Euron's unintentional reminder that Tywin had spared Tyrion's newborn life) and culminating in the prospect of another blood niece or nephew suggest there might be one more betrayal behind that enigmatic look on the #TargaryenLoveBoat.
  • I think Cersei's plans will fall apart one by one.  I could see what's left of the Lanister army choosing to follow Jaime and expect Euron to fall to Theon and Yara before delivering the Golden Company.  The Hound will face the Mountain, but I think he'll have help from Arya.  If Cersei is pregnant, I think she'll lose the baby, possibly from Arya stabbing her and leaving her to die.  Jaime may give her a merciful death.

    Ultimately, I don't think anyone will be on the Iron Throne.  The kingdoms will return to independent rule and be relatively peaceful for a few generations.  The Dothraki and Unsullied will return home, with or without Danny.  Any surviving dragons will fly off and magic will begin to fade again.   

    Jon will die to defeat the Night King.

    Sansa will rule over Winterfell and the North.

    Bran and Arya will disappear.

    Gendry, Tyrion and Sam will lead their own kingdoms.

    Jaime will lead a new Night's Watch.

  • There is another thread, that asks people to speculate if and when Cersi might die in season 8.
    Some comments theorize she will survive. I think if she does survive, the series won't be able to end. her whole character story will be about staying on the throne, even if the wheel brakes and the iron throne is no more, she will be plotting the whole time, leaving us all to wonder after the series is over, what the hell is Cersi going to do. I don't think she will be imprisoned because Danny, doesn't believe in prisons, she said so when Tyron suggested it for the Tarleys, instead of burning them alive. But Danny said no, she is the breaker of chains, she doesn't believe in holding people against their will, she is the one to free all slaves. Plus Cersi is on Ayra's list.

    Basically if Cersi doesn't die, the wheel and iron throne can't be broken fully. And I will be so pissed watching the whole 7 series lead up to this, and then it doesn't happen. Booooo

    More knowledgeable people than I have pronounced those leaks as #fakenews. I really don't think they're far enough along in production for real scripts to be leaking, I'd expect if leaks are to happen they'll happen next year.
