Here is another one I read about today. Those things Sam saw in the Citadel/library match those in the opening credits.

I noticed that too watching the show, I thought it was interesting.

I noticed that Ghost did not appear in either of the last two episodes. Apparently, he was left out for "budgetary reasons". I, for one, was glad for it. The Battle of the Bastards was tense enough without having to worry about whether he would survive every damn arrow volley.

I think it is very safe to say that Arya's next story arc will involve Thoros, Beric, Sandor and Melisandre.
I'll also add another thought. Nymeria is also in the Riverlands, so we may also get that reunion sometime next season as well.

Hmm. Jon may be getting an Ygritte vibe here.

The show doesn't go into it much, but Robert's Rebellion wasn't really about putting Robert on the throne. He just wanted revenge for Lyanna. Ned wanted the same and revenge for his father and brother that were murdered by Aerys. And Tywin was slighted when he proposed a Rhaegar/Cersei marriage, and Aerys rejected it.

Robert was also the best compromise for king, since the Starks would never supports a Lannister, and the Lannsiters would never support a Stark.

Which Targaryen was it that was the Maester at Castle Black?

Isn't Aegon "Egg" ?

No, Castle Black's Maester was Aemon Targaryen, he was Egg's brother (and Dany's great-great uncle).

Ah, Aemon What happened to Jim and Bob So Aegon is a descendant of Egg? He'd be Danaerys' nephew also and Jon's half-brother right?

Egg was Aegon's nickname.

I'm thinking something will happen to one of the dragons. Leaving one each for Jon and Dany. Wonder if we see Jon Snow ride one.

I hope they bring her back on "Elementary".

No matter who’s on the Iron Throne, “Game of Thrones” continues to rule in ratings; HBO’s drama hit a series high for its Season 6 finale, drawing 8.9 million viewers in a pivotal episode that killed off several major characters and shook up the show’s political landscape forever.

Rhaegar was the Mad King's son, and his own infant son -- killed by the Mountain -- was named Aegon as well.

There's some developments in the books regarding the younger Aegon's death
Spoiler:
and whether the baby the Mountain killed was really Aegon
but the show seems to be leaving those out.

He's a Targaryen. Some Targaryen kings have had a half dozen wives.

Seems to be? They are for sure.
Spoiler:
And there is no question Aegon is alive (in the books). He has the physical characteristics that are exclusive to Targaryens, and Jon Connington wouldn't dedicate his life to a fake. He was best friends with Rhaegar. He knew of the plot to save the infant son of his best friend.

Looking through this thread it seems a lot of people are forgetting, or simply don't know, that Aerys' wife was also his sister. Daenerys and Jon are not just aunt and nephew.

The motto of House Martell of "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" reflects the fact that Dorne never bent the knee due to be conquered.

sometimes all you people with backstory from the books are helpful. and other times all the backstory is just irrelevant noise.

It's still backstory. Important or not.
