The vision is only of a dragon's Shadow over KL, we don't see whose.

Hmm I disagree with you @andromedae I thought that Jon x dany made sense, especially towards the latter episodes. Sure Davos' line "staring at her heart" was a bit dumb but everything else felt right.

And as for the plan it does make sense

  Hide contents

Cercei is cercei, she's never gonna help them, and they need help, unless there is solid proof of the threat. And the only reason she wouldn't would be if she was truly insane... which unfortunately she is.

To me it doesn't. I'm allowed to have a different opinion indeed. I thought this season lacked complexity and struggle to even out the good events. Nice things simply...happened with no adequate build-up throughout the season. If there was a build-up of tension, it was from previous seasons for the most-part.

 

She doesn't take the threat seriously, but that's only to be expected, considering who she is. Tyrion knows Cersei. He knows she'll go to extremes and will be unlikely to cooperate, she has done so before, especially when she doesn't get her way. If she hasn't been cooperative before, why should she be now? Especially if it comes to working together with an enemy like Daenerys and depleting her armed forces against the White Walker threat. She still wants to keep the iron throne, so nothing else matters to her more than defending it from threats she considers true. That's not the right way to convince Cersei, she sees the White Walker but she still doesn't understand, how many they are, how far they can go, and how dangerous they truly are because she's never faced them in battle. A single White Walker is hardly a representation of how real the threat is. What consumes her is the now, and she's been blinded by how she feels like she's been run into a corner by the other houses and she'll fight like hell to get out. And tell me, When has Cersei been preoccupied for the greater good? She'd rather have them do the fighting for her, deplete their own armies, so she can finish them off when they return from the north.

 

It was a dumb plan because it also could have cost them Jon, without him, there is no North alliance, he's the glue sticking everyone together, Wildlings and Houses alike. He is also the key to an alliance with Dany, I do doubt Sansa would bend the knee readily. It was a dumb plan because they went on foot, ready to perhaps face an entire army of White Walkers, with no horses to flee and no way to obtain help other than sending someone running to the wall. Very impractical if you ask me. And what kind of support would be received? The most dangerous kind of course, the one that puts Danearys at risk as well, which is why she lost Viserion in the first place. They never thought "What Could Go Wrong", no kind of back-up plan, and never factored in the risks, as well as the low probability of having a good return on their investment. They also had no guarantee of convincing Cersei, and Tyrion, knowing who she is, should have known of the possibility of Cersei declining to help would be significant. A high risk, with a not as high probability of success and little back-up. So a bad plan in my eyes.

Is anyone waiting for the 6th book? I'm so excited! But how can books and series have the same end? They are so different :unsure:

I haven't watched the latest season yet, but I did pick up the books the other day and tried to pick up where I left off. It has me kind of in the mood to keep watching, but I'm doing that thing where I don't want to get sucked into it because then I'll be disappointed when there's no more to watch. :P Which is silly, but I am pretty silly so that's no surprise. 

 

Has anyone else found any other shows that are similar, by the way? I'm always looking for something else to watch once I finish to scratch that medieval itch, but nothing else quite hits the spot.
