"The no. They're marching the opposite direction. They're not coming to west coast. Like right right one. And then we i think we do actually see them right with with with griff bro. Exactly it's hard to say. But i think ultimately like where they wind up is probably align with target areas. But if you watch the show i work with the lancaster so i don't know i mean they probably could go either way. This'll probably a fact. It's definitely going to be in the neutrals like pros. You see like the target element. This is probably going to be just like pure neutral. Yeah i would suspect that. That's a good possibility. But you never know. And then they're all other units as well so not even nutrients. We have car stark loyalists. Who now. I think the car stocks actually mentioned at a simone expo. It might even go back to like one of the first years that the game had was was talked about it next. I'm kind of envisioning. I've had to go hunt down. But i think it was. Maybe a chat with eric laying like way back in the beginning was the kind of thrown out there like a name that this is a concept and obviously the car stocks are fine. But it's kind of exciting to see now that we're seeing a more of these stark some houses being filled out. And you know or is this. Maybe got like a bolton synergy you know i. I don't know it'd be well in the book is based on the books and the books haven't gotten there yet right. So that's the that's the only thing that's like the car stocks. They were mad at rob but they didn't actually like they always left as force but they didn't joined with anybody else as far as i know. Yeah that's a good point. I always forget to that the books. It's been such a long time like we don't know jon. Snow is dead or not. I mean that's a heck of like what if it comes back and they're like yeah no no he's dead. That was the goto them direction. So yes i guess in the books. Then they're definitely how stark loyalists still right. That's what that's what i would suspect. And you know. I i get super excited when i see these kind of sub faction groups and obviously you know the starks have a bunch of bannerman. And they're kind of filling out. There have been houses. Whether it's the telly or the number more than more mont having carson. That's that's awesome. I actually did have a comment. That a little bummed in that they want to see more just plain stark units besides sworn sword outriders and archers they wanna play like stark's and not as much bannerman. And you know. I hadn't really thought about that. Because i always think as a coalition force at you play a lot of stark's is that ever kind of cross your mind. You know i was never the biggest fan of most of the generic stuff. Anyway so i tended to bring a lot of mixed units my do think i do think it's cool to have the option of like generic stark forces just to have a little bit more. But what would they be right like we already kind of got cavalry and infantry and a bowman unit so what would be the peace. And there's i guess there's also that the honor guard technically. But i guess they were kind of saying they want to have their cool like an iconic just like this is a stark elite unit..

"I think you know this is gonna fit into a really interesting space and like the neutrals in particular because we've already got obviously like some heavily armored neutral infantry with things like black guards right and you have some ranged ability with the bastards girls but this is like i think to me you're going to be looking at a heavy elite infantry and a true dedicated range unit to add into the into the mix. Yeah i guess that would make sense. I also get a little scared about just neutrals in gender like it's such a great thing. It's a force multiplier at the more attachments and units. You have out there. The more diversity. There are tons of lists but i do you have like a super high morale unit that is available for lots of factions. You know that's that's a pretty big hole for some factions. And i know that you can only up to fifty percent of your list but sometimes it's nice to be able to be like okay like now this faction does this really well. But we know they're going to have some row weaknesses. I'll play into that when it's like well. Now they've got this other object to maneuver around does throw a little bit. I guess i'm not too big the unit because you can always outmaneuver units. I think a lot of times. It's like the attachments. Those those heads night attachments. Those are those are a little bit of fits other great for one point two. Yeah i agree with you. I think like a parallel would cards. Right you've got. Artifacts are like the generic sort of card type that can fit into any deck because the mana costs generic similar idea. Here is that like when artifacts are good pushes everything else out of the way right and so you know you want to be careful. I know they're aware of this. That they don't want neutrals to be like better than everything else. Like when remember. When floyd men were like easily the best cavalry in the game so good and then you know. Basically everyone was like okay. We're starting with like as much of that neutral stuff as we can fit in and then the rest of our actions so it does down sort of factions specific stuff. But that said. I still think it's really cool that you could insert these guys into any collection you have. It's really great for bolstering new factions. Were not all of their stuff out yet. Right like i rent a lot of bolton's with my bur athens to fill in ranged options and mounted options. So i think it's just to make sure they strike the right balance man. These people are going to be so excited when the starts to come out any any crazy thoughts here. Like i'm thinking like they're definitely neutral right like by definition. They're mercenaries I wonder if we'll ever see like additional sub-factions like we saw how the storm crows now are kind of built into the target faction. I know the golden company has a history having a lot of like ex pat target loyalist in their ranks. I wonder if we might see something where we have like. The neutral unit and then like factions specific versions. But maybe that's kind of getting ahead in future iterations of the game. That's a possibility. I mean like right there were sort of there. Was rumors of them. Aligning with stanton at one point that he had hired them and it's been like eleven years them. That was that just the rumors that they were hired or was that was the actually where they actually allow allied with them because it was like the whole like off know. Who's it with. Who at what time and like you know. I heard a rumor that they're going this way..

That's i would say is probably one of the most hotly requested for the game or percent. I mean they're almost like the boba. Fett of game of thrones in that like in the actual work. They're not in there that much. But then like the coolness factor the amount people like them for how little they actually have done is is pretty pretty sweet like it's more like the mystique around them than it is about their actual deeds. Yeah because everybody. I mean what have they done. They've marched around a lot in the books. I know they've sort of shifted alliance a little bit. But it's like all the kerley wants chase only wants to ever break a contract and they've and they've but everyone talks about them with such reverence ono companies coming into what are we going to do.

It looks like that guy went out the daily they were not very useful Varis. I can't believe that he died, what Barrett's. Yeah. Because he fucking made this whole agreed. This is a little bit larger than anybody even said, I've been so many kings. I've survived have I've done it for the good of the realm. He made it through the first target Ryan because he walks up to Johnston in front of everybody going, you should be the kidding. Written smarter with you on that Easter vibe by keeping secrets. And then they just kind of threw that away, and he just yeah. The various like the past episodes. That was horrible Russia. He's he is deaf. He's one of the smartest characters on the show him, and little finger, probably one of the smarter schemers on the show. You're on grey. We just talked died the hound in mountain. Of course. Khyber n-, and then Jamie, and sir. See the twins fun fact this episode aired on mother's day. She killed on mother's day when Taiwan died. He died on the episode that aired on Father's Day in two thousand fourteen really do this shit because there are interesting. Forget the death of I think they said, a million people lived in king's landing. So she killed a million people, and destroyed king's landing completely what we don't see which we see she's doing a little pattern some point, I can fourth she's going. I do when I'm mowing the lies. She's pretty big at some point doesn't the dragon run out of juice that loud that the thing that very also unevenly written gone, and so powerful in this episode. I wanted to draw dick with fire. What do that? Although I love this. What I love the shots search in the tower. I when she's looking out everything's calm. Then the next time you see her. There's like a little burn line at the end. Then the next time they cut to that shot. There's more pardon lines coming in, and then by the end just everything's torched around her from her point of view made it halfway like fan. Ohs. Yes. Who to ask blow? Yes. She but even though save half the people say. Like I'm fucking Bernard all down this Sunday wanted. She's just fulfilling Sunday's final wishes. Jamie are really dead. There's a lot of new body. We did see bodies, but I don't think the died on camera if if they crush we didn't see if you if they're still alive, horrible. If the Boughton likes arise, that we buck in horrible. But here's where everyone is left, what sides are there? So we have everyone winner fell. Which is the Starks sciences there. That's team. Jon the remaining team Jon brand is over there. Hopefully, he does something that anyone, we'll him in from the outside, yet or. He's still in screen saver mode as man, but it is review. Brent hops into screensaver about Tyrian is there but it's -tarian gonna be. He's anti Dany now to you gotta think she otherwise gonna fucking kill it. I hope he is. I that's. Smarter than that, and that, like he recognized the danger of everything going on with his family, and I feel like he would have caught onto her much quicker. But one of the things that I liked the episode not not to talk about going off Tyrian here was that, when Danny, and John, we're talking when they're about the may make out. And then get she got this by she said, this is all says, is because Sansa like we could've ruled in. We could have had this thing keep your mouth shut if she would have kept their mouths shut. And now they'll all these people are turning, so is it Danny versus in, in the narrow mind? Santa's responsible for all these people's debt..

"And then like, progressively, as show when on that all just totally turned into drama camping. So unexpected things. The red wedding or right? Or what happened in? Yeah. Which is like Hugh. I mean, they built that perfectly, I still can't get over that moment. Yeah. Yes. Like Darth Vader moment. It's just so powerful. And so, I think I think they really bought the biggest moments in the books, which is kind of what happened the last episode that they kind of like, what should have taken place over the entire course of. Like a whole season should have like shown what happened, but really they gave like one episode. You know. While at any rate, what you're talking about how them like. Just masturbating about their own writing. So listen to this, you're gonna love this any kind of forgot about the aren't fleet in your forces. They certainly haven't forgotten about her. Golden company has arrived in king's landing, courtesy of the great joy fleet the balance grown, distressingly, even while Dante kind of forgot about the aren't fleet and your forces. Fire, but it's fine. And sink it grace. He's already destroyed a good portion of fleet while any kind of forgot the aren't fleet and your forces. The islands and the reach. Danny kind of forgot about the power. They explain it just kinda makes me feel brain dead. It's I just watched. I can how dumb. For myself for, I don't need someone chewing. My thoughts from me. I don't know why it upsets me. I'm actually with you. Never watch them. I find it really breaking. Yeah. I like the inside. Look, those are on YouTube separately. The aren't fleet and you're on forces, your ships could be anywhere or in more than one place. You'd be flying around the open seas load, who knows how. This is the dumbest shit ever like they go to king's landing. And then somehow these dragons in air don't see the iron fleet and just get three sixty no scope. Is just painfully, I would have to vissarion and radio, we're gonna anyone even the writer himself said she forgot about the iron like. Never saw on. Yeah. It's a shame as such shame that the writings such kind of forgot about. Exactly. You know, the latest episode I, I was so conflicted. Because on one hand, I was so depressed about the culmination of all these characters that I loved and follow him, so invested in and watching them all perish, and just that, so that alone made me sad and depressed, really that the show this show. I've been watching since when we lived in Israel before we even made a YouTube channel. Thank or around the Israel. Then you have to like, watch that for a AM. We were watching it on the box like a really like SD old school box. Yeah. And you couldn't wait. So you would actually watch it at four AM. And then watch it again, with me. Yeah, yeah. Those are the first season, I remember I was so captivated by it. The here's a compilation of the cast being disappointed with the final scenes. Are you happy with how things in? Yeah. That season. No, you can't is you all happy. With the outcome of the show. Personally. The fright assemblies a little by the way brands, okay? We spent the whole story building up brand as this magical from the very first episode. He's pushed out the window and has these visions, and it's Coleman aided him doing that. Hang. All of those plotlines everything supernatural in the show. Just completely went nowhere and just get ignored. I think about this the other day in all the seasons since John snow got resurrected like it's barely ever addressed that this dude came back from the debt like nobody cares..

So after Tiber becomes just a smear on the stairs, search runs to the map. It's map place, quite a role in this episode where Jamie Feinstein, they meet in the same area where they lost parted in the season, seven finale and their tears and they're palpable. Love for each other is so infectious that even though we are Jamie, branch shippers here. It was really hard not to get very wrapped up and very emotional watching this unfold. Even if it was what you wanted they make their way to the dungeon to try to escape his plan. But of course, everything's blocked. I don't wanna die. You don't be the game revealed commentary about how she's quote, just a girl here at the end who needs comfort of a man is. Phone while known deaf. Brutal. This is bad and not at all how we. Not at all. You read this scene as two broken people who suffered through hell and often, 'cause their own hell. Yes, realizing they've just run out of moves. They've run out of escapes. Look at me, Jamie says nothing else matters. Nothing else matters only us, it's an idea. We've often heard from them in book and show recall season, one until you and I are the only people left in the world. She's in seven. I'm the only one you have left our children are gone are gone.

"It's so funny isn't some post. I don't know. But clearly something changed between seasons to go from the golden company Bank setup as this massive had to force again heading into season eight and even after episode one season eight we spent a long time talking about holding company. Be seeing a new fangled black fire, never broken a contract, ever roken contract play for the throw contract. Yeah. And show and there's no young Griff. You know. So they were we thought going to be players and said, Harry Strickland got got in about two seconds straight line. Like Rick on their absolutely must be golden company, footage, and some kind of, like alternate golden company plotline that got cut because otherwise it just doesn't make sense to waste any screen time at all on these fucking people. At least we at last, why we didn't get the elephants that would have been real do not like Harry Strickland has literally two lines and then freaking. Dis. Excellent beasts yo grace, believable, the ease with which Danny and her forces who get in on the golden company. Slang fun blast through defenses. Almost astonishing, Danny, and drogue on here. Rain fire down upon the walls, removing every single bigger crossbow from existence in the flash of aflame. She barely even needed. Her armies, Milly victory, really vast. And it was absolute. And it was essentially solo. And that, of course, is what makes what happens next. So astonishing devastating the Leinster soldiers lay down their swords, the bells rang Justice here and said they would and then donaire star Garin, the mother of dragons, Cleese, you the great grassy breaker chains, the unburnt, etc. Etc..

"I'm telling you. Would I have done? Yes. So he like once again, he's like tied up to a post like John Smith style, polka HAMAs and. I mean, he's blonde to it just came to mind. Syrian once again tries to convince him like you're the only person that can get through to Thursday, you need to talk to her tell her to back down. And then James like that's not gonna happen. Like, I never he's just do what you can like if anything for your child. So, you know, Jamie agrees. And if all outs fails, what the least he could do as if the bell ring the bells, so they kind of give their little fair while and they have a nice little moment like are almost here up a little bit. Because I don't think I've ever heard like Jamie or cheering weep together in Jamie's urge Tyrian tells them. You're the only one that didn't treat me like a monster. You were all I had. And that was just like oh. I think. Tender moment. I'm glad that they have because I mean that essentially be their last moment together. So they had that really touching scene between the two of them 'cause Tyrian, Jamie. They've been through a lot and Tyrian and Jamie's relationship is siblings. That's the one I think remarkable in. I don't know just kind of hopeful thing about the Lancaster families is that relationship. So they had their moment. You know that love for each other at EMI. That's the last time though, see each other. So it was good that they at least got to figure by. So we we go to the siege. So the siege began source as forces get ready to the golden company at the gates. We have the Lancaster army inside. And then there's the iron fleet in on in blackwater bay the hound aria and Jamie make their way into the red keep so the hound and Arya on a mission to kill, sir. Say in Jamie's on a mission to save sir say, so let's see if that works out. About the iron fleet. Where's yara? I guess the ours stayed back yard to Mark thing. She said, you know, what I'm just calling hold these iron islands from a homegirl. I'm going to say. Yarra was like this is not my problem. Ars there. But you're on sure is and he's out daily. Unfortunately. So he's out there. He's prep in the scorpions because you know, he's already killed a dragon. He can do it again. But this time our girl, Danny is prepared. So she's whoops in from the skies. And before they can even get a shot off. She's burning them all like, she's burned the entire iron fleet, and she's very strategic this time around because this time she's prepared. She's not ambush. So she actually she usually takes out all the scorpions. So good luck. Take it out Dural on it's not happening and you're on like blast office ship. So we'll even know his fate at this point. We just know his arm fleet is gone, then she like goes through the gate. She gets all the scorpions on top of the walls. She burst through the gates of king's landing and dragon fire and then takes out the golden company. And then that's when my basically all hell breaks loose. So like the unsullied received off rocky screamers co. I guess the leader of the go-to companies trying to run away, but grey worm gets them like genius mobile way. Getting some action. Just loves him. That as a. Still alive? Harmless kicking in there. You're staying alive. Stay anyways. So. I love how I say was watching from the red keep all Mark like she got it together. And then we see her face start to change like, oh crab. This is working like hot thought it would so keyboard in the mountain arrive, and they pretty much try to convince her they're like, you know, this is not safe anymore. It's time to go. So she's like, oh just need one more shot. That's all we need, you know. And so like, yeah. The scorpions they're all been destroyed. And then she's like, okay. Well, the iron flea has blackwater bay and you're on RT took out of drag that he can take out another one and Khyber once again burst her bubble. And he's like, yeah..

"Don't think so has landing day. He get a hold of a couple of ten thousand gold dragons to slide around. But like endanger camp, I don't. I don't think checkbooks that big. I don't think he's had anything, but what's been in his pocket, and what people are willing to give him for very long win over with with with the. Yeah. T-the into crate for sure. Yeah. Adam continues the other bigger character that was left behind the not address Dario Harris in each anti-eu play role in the final battle either. With the second sons, or if he somehow sold is sword to the golden company. I was thinking about this. I keep going back and forth about whether that would be satisfying like Dario Harris like essentially play into same scam and like stealing the whole golden company or backstabbing to getting like would that feel good like Danny's facing off? Dario Dario fighting against her. I don't think that makes sense at all. Like, they have told no part of the story that would make him unless you generic while he's a spurned lover, and he hears about he heard about John snow, and he just don't think Dario cares that much. I think Dario would just beyond the next one. Honestly. And if he if he does care as more like the genuine gonna love and admiration kind of thing that would not like the non kind of insanely jealous kind of love. Because. Yeah, Dario there's other fish nece-, but him being a trickster kind of thing. I don't know. I don't know if that would feel satisfying because presumably happen early enough. So Danny wouldn't have to burn king's landing, and then we're back to like potential happy ever after ending back on. I don't know. I was always I was always very resistant to like this pure sugar e type endings I wasn't expecting ending perhaps as bleak as what is looking like we're going to get. But like, I don't know that feels a little bit not as middle of the road as is expecting. Yeah. I just don't really see Dario coming back. I think there are other people who could be brought back that we talked about maybe Yaro with armies of of the Dohrn ish. I think would make maybe a little more sense in Dario because he's been out of the picture for so long. I just don't see it in a lot of people couple of weeks over speculating how read my finally make an appearance like at like as the last minute savior at the battle winter fell. And I mean, there's still a chance because John's marching through his neighborhood on the way to king's landing lake. There is an outside chance that you would meet Howland and mirror read in the neck. But at this point, like why would he have sat out the battle of winter Phil why would he now be joining them on the way to to you know, to defeat I guess as a personal grudge he loved Ned. He hated hates Lancaster's because they killed his boy. Katherine be. I'm having a hard time with their characterization of dania this season as mad queenie. I think a lot of to do the fact that it feels to me very gendered. She liked to use as an example, the show's treatment of status for the most part we all like status, I mean up until he burns his daughter live. But before that stands to Manus stances prepared to sack the city the win the throne. He isn't bishops and ruthless. And we'll do what he asked to do to fulfill his destiny and claim his rightful places ruler. He murdered his brother in the books murders other people with shadow babies and blood magic. And then is prepared to sack the city if they tell them status, and they tell them they tell STAN is one hundred will die. He responds thousands and all of us like hot damn, yes, Dan. Let's go. No one says status as a mad king. They described as rigid as unbending as a rifle air willing to do anything to take his crown to his detriment, this plotline feels forced and it's really kind of bomber. On the last guy to talk you out of feeling like criticism about powerful women to gendered because holy shit. A lot times it is, you know, guys just fucking passionate and tell it how it is and using using rough language of men of action and women are krill. And that's if they're trying to be polite because they're not trying to be polite, and they're just fucking bitches. But I I don't I don't agree with the characterization of Stanislaus stacking sacking king's landing like a key is I.

A big big beating Adjarian Lancaster the whole show. Jamie, Lancaster, dying in this. I was listening because it's everyone's prediction that he's going to go kill Sirsi. I I don't know if that's going to happen. But I don't really think he's in a die. I think his I think he's still a story left. You know, I've got brand and our fantasy game of thrones league. I don't think he'll die, but he can't die. He needs to fuck. You something to if he dies before they do an episode of just brands flashbacks, I'm gonna kill somebody. He needs to do something quick which which is an over exaggeration. Yeah. I don't know. What do you guys think about the night king because there's theories that hitting landing I'd say I have seen. Fifty. Yes. What I'm not understanding about this whole thing. It's like he is dead. Okay. He's the Nike is whatever we're just supposed to like know that he's just like on top of being practically invincible and unstoppable be killed like, well, yes, he's got hundreds of thousands of dead people. It is disposable to protect him. So he's just now like this giant like military genius. Like, the best of all you don't really know that much about them. That's why brand flashback episode. Explain who the hell he even is. I think a lot of people think he was a stark. That's that's the theory. Yeah. Just stark which. I don't know. There's a lot to accuse thing like in the in the show. I think it's like at least two or three times we're a strategy as oh, they think we're going here. But that's only a small portion of our army are big armies going over here. Yeah. That if that follows principle that is what's going to happen. They're gonna Tak king's landing and not. Yeah. Not the winter fell. So and I know Alex, you're pretty big you're on fan. So he might he him in golden company may make an appearance if that happens. You're not coming to this fight..

Think that way and act in an effort to pursue that ambition with former master plotters like Taiwan and little finger dead off the board and former master plotters league various interior in relegating themselves to the bleachers is. It's disheartening. It's also importantly, contrary to the idea of breaking the wheel of saying that something mattered more than the family name, something like equality. Fairness. Goodness, why fight for real change. If you don't believe it can last searching, you're on will those two your on been talking a lot of game talking loud about his prowess as a captain which. Okay, fair and in his telling his large cock for quite a while since his arrival in king's landing seven, he's been openly campaigning for the position of Royal impregnator dispersing, Lancaster. And finally after securing the allegiance of the golden company, delivering them to king's landing without the opens. She is furious, by the way when I was as rewatching season's finale. She's like urine graduate has gone to the golden company twenty thousand men, arches, cavalry and elephants. I believe she says an elephants I believe she was. Waiting for those elevates when she needs a contract lawyer. That is my tape. You say they've never broken a contract. But like she signed a contract for elephants, and they're not here. Yet, another round of rugged Yoshiko mixed with just the right amount of pleading and you're in God his wish, sir. She begrudgingly lets him smash. I'm going to put the Brinson your belly. He says on his way out after being dismissed one problem. He's a bit late as I told Jamie last season, she's already pregnant one theory, which we subscribe to here is that this encounter was designed by thirty two trick on into thinking he had done just what he boasted he would do give her child her reign as it is hangs by threat. She surrounded all sides, by enemies to the point that she's had to buy an army the golden company when she meets that army. It's an empty throne room. She's ruling over ghosts right now save it was known that her child was the product of incest with Jaime. The realm would never allow that trial to ascend to the throat when I was slightly more in control. She said she didn't care about that. But without Jamie buyer size. You can't pursue. That course, Lancers aren't the target areas. After all the euro on scheme, then is a means to safeguard to protect.

"He's Joe's in his duty. And in his his his duty and his people over his love over his his position in night's watch over his own honor like he's made way more sacrifices, and like, you know, he's not even a first time. He's been in love and sacrifice. So the challenge is if for them to the answers, like Why's it different this time, I guess, but I'm hoping I'm actually hoping that the conflict is going to be inter one between John's loyalty to family, and Danny and not like his personal ambition, and Danny. Yeah. I don't think so John doesn't strike me as that guy. I'm curious how these ingredients are gonna mix him, and Danny though, 'cause iron throwing the one ring and literally drove people psychically crazy. Sure. But they don't have that mechanisms of. All right. Speaking of crazy, we go to Khyber n- who tells her see that the dead have broken through the wall to which response good. She looking forward to this. And then we see the the forces of year on the ships the iron fleet what they call it. And we go out to want to your own flagship, and we find yours still alive. And you're on tells her he's gonna go fuck the Queen. And they appreciate the conversation. She has not been supplying him with because he's got a crew full of mutes. Did we know that as show watcher? And it's okay. I thought that was a book only thing so far. Yeah. Yeah. But I do these other castes, so I don't know anymore. No, the the lore behind that is that you're on rips to tongues out of everyone that serves him on his crew for I don't know book, you're on is like this horrifying pirate Warlock guides dabbling and black magic and all this other shit. This version is such a bizarre de collaring of that curator. I'm not even big I'm not a big gray joy fan. Obviously. I haven't I haven't hit that bias. But like if you are a great joy fan must be really annoying to have this version of your on comes into screen like as such an afterthought. Somebody doesn't read the books. I kind of like this version of your on the physical embodiment of aeriens and. It's it's not a subtle character. But it is one that mixes interestingly with other ingredients in the show. Yeah. He's like like in the show. He's just an experienced junkie. Like, right, right. He's won the fight. And he's he's going to do the crazy shit until he dies. Right. And you know, that's his plan. Right. And I guess I'm okay with that. Now, they haven't used him super affectively. I don't think. There haven't been those interesting interactions other than like with Jamie. But even that was cut short. So I I don't mind you're on. So we anything on Europe being alive yards alive. Live and I own. I wonder if we'll ever see her again after the scene that we see her again next time. I don't know this felt this. Yeah. The scene where they part definitely feels like a final meeting of the to me anyway. So we may not see her again. Anyway, sir. She takes an audience with your on and the leader of the golden company, captain Harry Strickland, apparently, which is maybe the worst possible name to throw into this show at this point. Yeah. Worst indica. Maybe just so fucking. It sounds like he's out of a detective novel. This a terrible name for this universe. It's very it's like having somebody named Tom Smith and Star Wars. Yeah. It makes no sense. But this. In Harry, Strickland, the golden company. What are you? Sure is not in an accounting firm. All right community. He was with the iron Bank. Maybe right, right. But it's interesting because he shares the name of the commander in the in the books because there is an actual commander of the golden company. But he is nothing like his book depiction. No, he's like old and portly and balding..

"Mercenary army twenty thousand strong, we know from search e elephants and all high Strickland new character entering the fray character and the books obviously, finally going to be on the show Surti sent your onto procure golden company she intends to use this army to protect maintain her thrown what we know about golden company. They've never broken a contract. However, would we know about your on? He doesn't actually give shit about thirty or about marrying her. It's all about power for him. Build me a thousand ships, and I will give you this world that what he said to the iron islanders. He just wants to win. He wants to be in control. And if he has to take her out. He absolutely will. So who made the contract he did presumably when she sent him? So do they actually report to him? Could he use her own army to take her down the idea of against or she being caught in this web that she foolishly spun is very very very fitting to me agreed now here's my take on the goal the goal and coming in the books was founded by. A rivers and various other refugees from the first black fire rebellion civil war that was fought in west Ross against house targe area, and by the kind of bastard off-shoot house backfire they lost many of them fled east. One of them eagle river's fled with the sword of Aegon the conqueror sword named black fire. So as many of the book readers will know, a mercenary company coming as part of a storyline involving a young man who reports to be a gun targe area, and the the son of radar and Elliott Martell who was a smuggled out of the city. We were just raised in Ossios vague on Fager younger, whether or not, you know, it's like, do you believe Israel or fake? Anyway, what if they kind of combine those things, and Harry Strickland is Phil like considers himself a black fire or they're still kind of like black fire loyalist in that crew. And they have the sort of on the conquer. I think that's like a really cool. Away to complicate these things. What if they're like, oh, we've been hired to come. Finally after all these years come home to west rose to fight for the throne. Sure, we'll do it. And guess what? We'll do after that. We'll put ourselves on the throne because this is what we've been waiting for all these years. I like that a lot. I worry actually something like that can happen because it just doesn't feel like there's time to do that Justice. But that's really interesting, and whether it's something like that. Or just you're on actively betraying the idea of sir see being betrayed by it something that she thought was going to be a tool to further her own agenda feels very very fitting. I like that. That's really interesting Arias remaining kill us tits, sir. See obviously on their we already talked about the idea of the theory about her wearing Jamie's face to fulfil, the Vallon car prophecy. She doesn't need to wear anyone's face. She's just gonna find a way in. But obviously that would grant her insurance popular new theory on the internet is that she could be wearing little fingers. I kind of face of those again would be well known that he had died. Sure. But who knows who knows what how the show is treating the the sharing of information. This just go full mission impossible. If you're in spaces, and then obviously the mountain remains on her. She's not going to kill them out in the hound is what if what if she teams up with her new buddy hound and helps them out that would be right. They have that gray little chat about how they both want to kill him. You know, sin by the fire back, then I think the hounds gotta do it on his own. Yeah. Yeah. She had the hound Mel asandra Barrick Illan pain on her list at some point those characters who were still alive, and we're once on her list, but over the course, the show has removed them for one reason or another so all right. Speaking of the throne number six who wind up on it is neat. Whole hashtag for the throne marketing campaign a masterfully committed bit of misdirection we did this past thrown explainer video series where we looked at how star Castro Garin how slam Stor the field..

"But there's hundreds of them, and it's like this full company. People standing golden armor. This is almost certainly the golden company the cell sword company that sir see sent year on great joy over to Esso's to fetch. So she'll have something for John Danny to contend with when they get back, and there's a there's a false lead. Here. This guy standing sort of on the upper deck here looks like it could be Jamie from the back. But it's not looks Jamie. Lancaster? It's definitely not is because of the company he's keeping and his his hand. He's got an hand for that. Now, it could be in the books, the leader of the golden company is this, sir. Harry strickland. But it doesn't match book description. This guy's like an old portly Fatman or a balding, man. And this guy's like again could be mistaken for Jamie, Lancaster. So I wonder if the fact in the books golden company is was founded by a bunch of black fire rebels and the black fires were a branch of illegitimate. Tar guarantees that were legitimized by very bad king and caused a instant civil war and the ones that lost went to SOS, and they did various things one of them. The bitter steal the guy the bastards name bitter steel founded this gold golden company, and there's a lot of theories that they're going to be involved with in the books anyway, bringing this kind of fake target area and his manufactured tar, Gary and back the kind of be affoil for Danny? And. Like, this guy is like that kind of handsome, and like what you would kind of expect from that kind of character. But it's way too short in a game to be doing something. Like that. Right. Yeah. I mean, you're you're. I don't think they're going to introduce that. I think what's happened. Here is a Dario situation where they've just said fuck the description in the book, we don't care we're going with somebody completed it could be they have this kind of golden prince not like because they do that sometimes like a wing to book readers like. Yeah. This is another universe where we had five four seasons and George finished a fucking books. This would be the guy we get to play fake on tar Garin. But yeah, I don't know could be I could see like, you know, someone talking to your on about. We've hated. Hated the tar Garryowen's. And the that branch that Turkey Gary ins for generations. And we want our chance to get even I could see them bringing a little bit of that Laura into their like, you said, we we do have confirmation that torment and Barrick survive epoch wall collapse last season because they're seen here going through a dark corridor. With Barrick sword lighting, there's a quick shot of salmon there to throw confusion about who brands talking to. And then they show, sir. C looking smug as hell after establishing shot at king's landing the mountain looks like a giant doc Johnson novelty dildo back there, I fucked on hate to design weaned guard so much okay? So much. It's like, I don't know there's Khyber into the side fanning the flames of smugness, no doubt. As brand says home. We see this shot of the Townfolk outside winter fell kind of observing this giant marching column of solid going winter Phil and there's a kid and extreme foreground that really reminds me a lot of young Ricken from season one. I wonder if because we started our relationship game of thrones. By seeing this big retinue of the Barath themes coming into king's landing or not I'm sorry winter fell and brand seeing that from the tower. It seems like there's a lot of these notes that are trying to remind you of where we began. And now, we're we're going which I thought was kind of nice. There's a shot of John Danny writing amidst solely looking fucking bad ass, which is probably who again brand is talking to the scene dragon buzz sans, and and one of which refills towers and she flashes. Kind of like the small smile of oboe is going to be really helpful weapon. Or maybe it's just wonder, I don't know. Yeah. Everybody kind of gets a shot sorta like that.
