    I'm not so sure. I can see 4 kingdoms submitting to Targaryan-Stark rule pretty easily.
    Totes, but I'm saying I don't think Jon will end up sitting the iron throne. Either no one will, or Dany will and absolve the position, ever the wheel-breaker.

    Was Bran Stark even in season 5? I watched them all back to back so I can't remember which season was what.

    The only thing that I didn't like about season 5 was that all the story lines seemed to just keep expanding away from each other instead of coming together. I guess they will at some point.

    I knew I'd seen the actor who plays Edd before. He was in Pramface!
    Nah. The last scene with Bran in season 4 is literally the second-last Bran chapter in the books. So given the new storylines introduced in season 5, I think D&D made the logistic decision just to save it for season 6.

    There's a saying that goes something like.. Good men seek power, great men have power thrust upon them.

    I think that D will attack but that John's rebirth will inspire people along with his honour. Not sure how the dynamic between them will play out.

    For her crimes, Cersei is tries by the High Sparrow and judged guilty on all counts. As her last plea, she demands a trial by combat - letting the gods judge her innocence. As her champion, she elects Ser Robert Strong. The faith also needs a champion - who else can go up against the Mountain? One of the faith militant? Nah. We need a big man, who can fight, who is also a man of the Seven. The gravedigger fits that description. He fights as it's his duty; he hates his brother; it's the right thing in the eyes of the Seven due to Cersei's crimes.

    I'd like so see a trial by seven at some point before the end of ADOS (perhaps even as Cersei's trial - and why not? Someone as devout as the sparrows seem like the kind to do it)...we haven't seen one for just over a hundred years since the tourney at Duskendale.

    I understand what Cleganebowl is, but why would Sandor travel back to King's Landing just to fight his brother? Sure, he hates him, but imo that's not really enough motivation for him to return to the city that he hates just to fight and (possibly) kill his brother. Plus he's lame, so I doubt he'd be able to win against his brother anyways. Though I do like the idea that Clegane is the gravedigger, I just don't see them fighting.

    Tbh the whole cleganebowl thing is a bit of a joke among book readers. They know it isn't that likely to happen but its still fun to think about because everyone wants to see the Mountain vs the Hound

    Even if they did fight, in their current conditions "Ser Robert Strong" would beat the hound as the hound's leg is still messed up so he would be in no condition to properly fight.

    Ahh, fair enough. I've read most of the books but I'm not up to date on all of the theories .

    Tbh, Robert Strong seems pretty unbeatable. There were only about 5 people in the show who could have beaten him when the was The Mountain, but now he's undead he seems indestructible. Anything short of decapitation probably won't phase him.

    Thing is, because we haven't seen much of him, his weaknesses are not as well known. Some people aren't sure if he even has a head to decapitate, as the Mountain's skull was sent to Dorne.

    Fire could be a weakness as it harms wights as well, but it looks like Robert Strong is a different kind of undead.

    To defeat him it won't be in single combat, it'll take multiple people to take him down I think

    He certainly has a head in the show, as it was shown at the end of season 5, though how he has a head is a mystery to me with no skull . Cersei will likely demand trial by combat, so whoever the faith's champion is will have to defeat him in single combat. I can't see Ser Strong losing, but perhaps there is a twist to the tale. It would be Martin's style to kill off Lancel (who could be the faith's champion?). Also, why go through the effort of creating Strong as a character only to kill him off 5 minutes later? We have to assume that whoever Strong faces, he will win. Perhaps he tries to kill the faith's leader during the battle?

    They say the Mountain's skull was sent to Dorne. It was likely not his skull (or perhaps it is, and Qyburn is a much greater necromancer and taxidermist than we give him credit for).

    I'd betcha that he could be killed, and I'd be willing to bet that he's not as good a fighter as the alive Mountain - do you think you'd be coping all that well in his situation? Nah. He'd totally be slower, at the very least!
