You think Arya will run back to Gendry?

By the looks of the trailer for next week looks like she’s sticking around in KL.

I will go hunting for fanfic about Gendry and Arya in a couple of weeks ;)
Give pees a chance.

Will Gendry Baratheon end up on The Iron Throne as King and Arya as Queen?

What are you guys doing for the final ep?

I’ve got my sister coming over for a final simulcast viewing and pre party. Marital Unit is away for anti kidnap training (yes, really) next week so I need to be able to squeeze/cry etc with someone!
LONG story LONG:

Years ago Mr. Fish was seriously injured in battle. He is a retired USA veteran. To this day, he has chronic medical problems.  A few years ago, he had to retire from his job as a parole officer due to his medical issues. He is a true law and order type of guy. He reads at least one book a week. He is always looking for something new to read. My friend who is not only a psychiatrist but also an attorney loves to read. She is one very intelligent female. She made a suggestion for Mr. Fish to read George R.R. Martin’s novels. I purchased the GoT novel for Mr. Fish as a start. He ate the first 5 books up. He is now waiting for The Winds of Winter.

I am a nurse who worked in the emergency department for over 20 years. I saw it all. For extra money I signed up for CBRN defense training.  CBRN = Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear. I was trained for defending our country against the threat of CBRN weapons and Weapons of Mass Destruction. I tried to be serious. However, I had flash back to the X Files’ TV series. They dressed me up like I was going to perform an alien autopsy. At times, I would start laughing during my training. I kept waiting for the Cigarette Smoking Man to show up during my training.

I don’t think @DynamoHum 's martial unit will be laughing during his anti-kidnap training. Will he?

Since the beginning of HBO’s GoT series, Mr. Fish and I order a large pizza and watched GoT. Mr. Fish has the book knowledge and I have the social media knowledge. We will watch the final episode of Game of Thrones season 8 together with our large pizza. Mr. Fish will need to sprinkle extra garlic power and oregano on his slices. I take my pizza as it comes from the shop. I try to take my life and Game of Thrones as it comes…

Did you hear on the Cockles podcast about the agreement between D&D and GRRM to not put the other books out til after the show... I think we may get them quite soon, which I am pleased about as I have held off reading them til after the show is over...

I also had CBRN training when I worked at a USAF base - sobering stuff!

My sister has the book knowledge. We watched ep2 together as well - she knows she isn’t allowed to talk during the show, but we do allow speaking during ad breaks. She bought me a GoT cookbook for Christmas a couple of years ago .. I may put that to use on Sunday!

Hubby will be deadly serious about his training ... I think he might just have to go to Afghanistan this year as well as Democratic Republic of the Congo and maybe Palestine.

Give pees a chance.

GRRM came out with a statement that the books weren't done, that he hasn't even started on the eighth one...

As for who I think should take it all in the finale:

While in my kitchen for hours, I listened to Oysters, Clams & Cockles: Season 8, Episode 5: The Bells, again. Yes, I heard about the book agreement. Wow!!!
@Spookcat , I wonder why GRRM came out with a statement that the books weren't done. What is up with that?
Yes, CBRN training is sobering. I handle stress with humor or music. I blame my Irish DNA.
I am happy to know that you will have your “quiet” sister with you as you was watch THE END. I did not know that there was a GoT cookbook. LOL!
Oh no, your hubby may have to travel to those dangerous areas> I hope not. Most men ans women in that line of work, take training very serious. I would be terrified.

Probably because it was one of the shows actors who started talking about it.

WOW WOW WOW.
I just signed the petition. After Episode 3 on Season 8, I gave up hope on a satisfying end. D&D were in over their heads.

So there is supposedly 4 different ending that have been filmed.

Imagine if eps were sent out to different streaming partners/TV companies with different endings.

HBO gets version 1
Sky gets Version two

Social Media would explode with the resultant simulcast!

Chaos is a ladder....

I'm curious whether we will see anymore from Jaqen. Does Arya still owe a name?
