The first two episodes of Season 8 have come and gone, and there are only 4 episodes of the show left. It took two years of waiting, but it almost seems like it is going by so fast now that it’s here.
Well. I won’t spend too much time recapping the episode, as I would rather spend time talking about what I think it all means and what will happen next.

Well, here we are – rapidly approaching the final season of my favorite TV show. HBO has released some teasers and such.
So I thought I might make some predictions for what we might see in the final season of the show, and specifically, who I think will live and who will die.

I rewatched S7E6, “Beyond the Wall”, again and noticed a few things I had not noticed the first time.
For one thing, it almost seems like the Night King knows when Bran is watching him through Greensight. Is it just me? When Bran had warged into the ravens to fly over the Army of the Dead, the Night King looked up and the ravens scattered immediately, as if the connection to Bran had been suddenly interrupted or broken. And since Bran immediately goes out of his warg/Greensight trance also, I am assuming that it is broken.
The Night King was created by the Children of the Forest. Did they pass on Greensight to him when they created him?

So while there was a lot I liked in this episode, there was also some stuff that I didn’t like. But first, a few things that were guessed correctly.

I have been meaning to write a post about the first episode of Season 7, and so here it is, along with some other bits of new information from the trailer shown at ComicCon in San Diego.

So after many years of wanting to throw a GoT theme party, we are finally going to have one – complete with costumes. The occasion is, of course, the premiere of Season 7 on the 16th of this month. I am going to be preparing a dinner of some sort based on A Feast of Ice and Fire and maybe a few other recipes from the Inn at the Crossroads site. Hopefully this will be the first of many.
So anyway… I have had Game of Thrones on the brain lately and have been thinking about what we might expect in Season 7 (and maybe Season 8).

So the trailer came out for Season Seven of Game of Thrones, and of course it has already broken records for viewership.
First I checked out my friend Pat’s blog to see what he thought of the trailer and get his input. If you want the opinion of another person who has read all of the books and is a fairly obsessed ASOIAF/GoT fan (like myself, and in a good way) then go check him out.
So here’s my thoughts.

As I have often done before a new season of Game of Thrones, I thought I would make a few predictions as to what we might see when Season 7 begins this July.
We have already heard a few things, and can guess a few more based on the bits and pieces that we have been shown in the teaser trailers, some clues that have slipped out, and on the logical progression of the story.

Back on March 6th, Kelly and I attended a very special sort of concert at the Garden. As anyone who knows us reasonably well already knows, we are really big fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series and the TV show based on it, Game of Thrones. Thanks to one of her coworkers, we got two tickets to the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience. It was by far the most enjoyable concert experience I have ever had. It was some three hours long, and I never got tired or bored. It was simply amazing.

because the real world has been just awful lately. Terrible. Horrible. I just can’t bring myself to talk more about it because it’s just too depressing. Things just get worse and worse rather than better.
So yeah, let’s talk about Westeros – the North in particular, although I am sure I will wander around to other places at some point.
