    Nah, that was never confirmed as far as I know. Plus, she said it's her own body: http://www.ew.com/article/2016/05/15/game-thrones-emilia-clarke-dany

    It was in her contract but she said she'd still go nude if it was for a purpose to her character. She said in a magazine that it was her.

    Also, she is definitely immune in the show. According to GRRM she isn't in the books. I wasn't suprised to be honest, they have been building up her fire immunity since episode 1 season 1.

    Yeah, Dany isn't immune to fire in the books, but it's a completely different story in the shows.

    You guys think the Dothraki will follow her now? Like, the entire horde? No Khal has ever commanded a khalasar so large! :O

    Today's ending was a bit of a tear jerker. Poor poor Willis. Warged into his future body while his past self is left screaming the last command it hears; "Hold the door". :(

    So much happened that episode I don't know where to start.

    I wonder why the white walkers wanted Bran so bad, what threat is he to them?

    Very interesting that the COTF created the WW.

    yeah i know! this is just a fun observation that came to mind of how you can compare halo to GOT. (SPOILERS!!!!!) ancient war in both, halo - precursors vs forerunners, Game of thrones - COTF vs man. halo - precursors are about about to lose so they create the flood to destroy/enact revenge on the forerunners, Game of thrones - COTF create white walkers to destroy/enact revenge on man. just thought it was cool to compare the similarities.

    Soooo if we don't get some version of this speech from Wyman Manderly in the show after they went through the effort to talk about the northern houses, I'll be maaaaaaad.



    That end scene with Hodor was amazing.

    They kind of ruined the awesomeness of the Kingsmoot and Euron tho...

    Randyll Tarly is Tywin 2.0

    Edit - On second thought he's Stannis' obsession with justice combined with Tywin's ruthlessness.

    The Tarly scenes were cool. Honestly didn't expect Benjen to be Coldhands because it just seemed so predictable but every fan theory seems to be blatantly confirmed this season lmao. Came off a bit weird and sudden because unlike the books he doesn't escort bran-meera-jojen to the cave or sam-gilly-baby to the wall. Nonetheless was epic. The faith storyline was super anticlimactic, so much build up to the weakest of payoffs ever, curious to see where it goes now. They've royally ****ed Jaime's character but if we get the babies and trebuchets speech from A Feast For Crows I'll be somewhat content I suppose.

    That Tarly dinner was so ****ing awkward. I agree with you about the Faith storyline being a letdown. When I saw the trailer, I was so hyped to see Tyrell and Lannister soldiers **** up the Faith Militant. So much for that (THANKS TOMMEN YOU WEAK ****)

    I know people will call me out for being a book wanker, but I can't help but feel sad at how flat and uninspiring the dialogue comes off every damn episode in comparison. Some of my favourite scenes are Martin's speeches, e.g. Renly's Peach, The North Remembers, Last Winter, Babies and trebuchets, and especially, especially the 'Broken Man' speech. We kind of got a version of this episode but not really? I understand they have to simplify dialogue for the mass audience this show rakes in, and they hardly have the screentime to present these speeches. But man oh man sometimes it's just plain criminal what they replace some of the dialogue with.



    A Feast For Crows is a mess in that it has extremely slow pacing and overall isn't particularly memorable. However, it has some of the best writing in the series. Example the above. I would have killed to have seen Ian McShane deliver the above speech.

    Otherwise, CLEGANEBOWL GET HYPE.
    Also the Blackfish is the man.
