    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    There's no Lyanna-Jorah scene in the first episode, I take it?

    I wonder if this is just speculation. It would suggest a big time jump is coming. I couldn't picture it happening any time before Albert's death.

    Free Solo (2018)

    Yeah, his girlfriend is the unofficial MVP of the movie. It's sad that she has to center him so much, knowing he won't/isn't capable of being so devoted to her in return.

    Kit Harrington already heavily hinted that Jon would tell Dany.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Some idle thoughts after watching the trailer again: When Bran says: "Everything you did up until now brought you to where you were meant to be... home," could it be he's talking to Dany? Or even Arya? It doesn't quite make sense that he would be talking to Jon, as Jon had already returned to Winterfell before going to visit Dragonstone. The way Bran says "home," it sounds as if the person he's addressing has reached it either for the very first time, or the first time in a long time. Doesn't the first one describe Dany's situation? She was trying to get back to Westeros her entire life, doing things along the way that she likely now regrets. Now she's arrived, and even though it's nothing like she thought it would be, she's home. Similarly, Arya had been away from home for a very long time. To get back, she had to train to be a killer and has killed dozens of people. She probably has regrets and doubts, and wonders who she truly is. Maybe Bran is assuring her that she had to go through that journey in order to be able to return to Winterfell. Then again, he could be talking to Jon if Jon is expressing regrets about leaving the Night's Watch. But somehow leaving the Night's Watch doesn't feel as morally difficult (Jon did serve until his death, after all) as burning people to survive or mass-killing people to survive. Plus, Jon already went through this soul-searching in Season Six.

    The Cast of Victoria: Acting Royalty

    I just watched the movie musical Les Miserables, and saw that Kate Fleetwood, the actress who played Feodora, was one of the nasty factory workers who caused Fantine to be fired. A bad guy in every role she plays, it seems. She was helped by Hannah Waddingham, Septa Unella (the "shame" nun) in Game of Thrones.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Arya (while scared) was purposely trying to lure the White Walkers down to the crypt.

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    True, but it had not been called Wettin for centuries. The house at the time was known as Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (or more colloquially, Coburg).

    There's that and That said, I will laugh so hard if when Albert dies, he still has that floppy hair.

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    Ugh, found this at the PBS website: WTF? How hard is it to do basic research and confirm that Albert's house was Saxe-Coburg and Gotha?

    Hopefully the older child actors will be better. Not that it will matter if the writing is awful.

    Yes, let the stories about the children eclipse the stories about the servants, please.

    The Dragon Prince

    The creators discuss Season 2 and hint at where they are going in Season 3 and beyond.

    I'd totally go for a spinoff about Victoria's daughters in Germany.

    Along with an overly dramatic storyline featuring At least Vicky would be 12-13 by Leopold's birth, and Bertie a year younger, so they would be played by different actors.
