Re: Game of Thrones: Season 8 (Final season)

One thing I was thinking about today that I'm disappointed that they never used or had a scene for is Jon being lit on fire by someone or something and to his own and others surprise, he is unharmed.

Would've made for a cool little scene at some point. Disappointed that never came into play.

Jon burned his hand on a lantern in season one episode 8.

That hand must be his Stark hand... his other hand is the Targaryen one. I think that's how genes/DNA works, but don't quote me.

D&D for whatever reason decided explaining any magic in a FANTASY series was to be done as little as possible. It left a ton of holes in the story and for what? My best guess is theyíre not fans of the fantasy genre or they believed less magic made GOT more palatable for a broader audience.

Re: Game of Thrones: Season 8 (Final season)

Think they missed out on using that in a more classic GOT way in the last episode (me playing writer. And we remove the scene where Jon burns his hand lol)...

- Jon is brought to Dany the same way Varys was
- She sentences him to to death. Drogon appears
- Passive aggressive "Dracaryus"

Now at this point, it's a scene we've seen before. So some viewers are expecting the same fate for ol Jonny from it being set up in the same way. Not only that, but at this point, it's been so long in the show that most viewers have forgotten that Targaryens can't burn.

Then there will be others who do remember and be all like "Omg. So predictable. He can't burn. It's not going to hurt him. Now all of a sudden she forgot he's Targaryen? Of course she did. DnD suck."

- Drogon lights Jon the F up. Flames completely engulfing him
- Then expectedly or unexpectedly (depending on the viewer) Jon survived the fire

Now the viewers are all like "Oh ****. I forgot! He's Targaryen. Can't burn! Haha!"

And our more shrewd viewers, "Duh "

- Jon and all the characters there watching are completely in shock
- Except Dany
- She says something like "I'm sorry. I had to be certain." Goes and sits on the throne.

Now viewers are confused from the abstract statement. The hell does that mean?

- Dany... "Valar Morghulis" or "Greyworm" or something else clever lol
- Greyworm slits Jons throat from behind

Everybody got got! Our casual and the "smarter" fans alike. You experience relief after Jon doesn't die. Hopeful and giddiness about his Targaryen bloodline. Jons the man!

Sike!

"If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention!" This is GOT mfers!

They did almost that exact scene with the Night King.
