Game of Thrones: Questions After Beyond the Wall
Is Daenerys actually barren? Daenerys thinks she can't bear children because of the words of Mirri Maz Duur.
Back in season one when Dany gave birth to a scaly monster in exchange for Drogo's "life" she was led to believe that she would never bear children again.
Mirri Maz Duur explained that Drogo would return, "when the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again and you bear a living child, then he will return, and not before."
There was a lot of baby talk last episode. Tyrion bothering Dany about the line of succession with no heir. Tyrion mentioning that Jon was making eyes at Dany. Jorah told Jon to give Longclaw to his kids. Come hell or high water, this romance is happening.
So can the two Targaryens have a child and break this prophecy? My inkling is yes, and that Dany's surprise at her pregnancy will be coupled with the revelation that Jon is in fact a Targaryen (her nephew.)
Will the undead Viserion breathe fire or ice? My first instinct is to say ice, but on the other hand, Viserion could be more useful to the Night King if he could melt the Wall.
Will Bran stop being worthless and actually contribute? He will certainly have a major part to play later, but it's a bit jarring to think that Bran knows so much and chooses to just sit by a tree because "the ink is dry." His sisters are on the verge of killing each other and the Night King can now get over the wall.
Many people thought that Bran might warg Viserion, assuming Jon rides Rhaegal. Now that that option seems to be out, what is Bran's part in all this? Could Bran warg the undead Viserion? He's been told that he will fly. Does flying as a crow that one time count? Maybe he will look into the past for some vital information on how to kill the Night King with that arrowhead.
Is Bran actually Bran the Builder (the man who built the Wall and Winterfell) due to some strange cyclical time loop? And what is Bran's connection with the Night King? They dress similarly. They both have supernatural mind control abilities.
When and how will the Cleganebowl happen? It's not a question of if. It'shappening.gif. Will Cersei take someone prisoner and set up a trial by combat wherein the Hound partakes? Or just a regular old fight. The preview shows everyone gathered in an arena perfect for this sort of thing.
Is either one of Arya or Sansa aware of the fact that they are being manipulated? Even moreso than Littlefinger, the real puppetmasters behind this squabble are Benioff and Weiss. Of all the plot lines on the show, this one feels the most needlessly complicated for the sake of drama. The only way this ends is with that dagger killing Littlefinger and then taking his face for later schemes.
The most pressing issue: Will Tormund get together with the Big Woman? She's on her way to King's Landing. And based on the speed of travel these days, I'd figure she's already there. I'm not sure if Tormund is going with everybody or not. Bear in mind, the farthest south he's been is Winterfell.
Why did Dany go to Jon Snow's aid but not the Unsullied trapped at Casterly Rock? I guess she likes Jon more.
Have Euron and Theon just been twiddling their thumbs? What are they doing?
Is Cersei even going to care that they brought back a wight? (No.)
Can the finale not get leaked, please?
