I think it's a VS sword, especially on the show.
I think the original Lightbringer was Dawn and the one who made it and wielded it first was the 1st Azor Ahai, and the title "Sword of the Morning" is some sort of tribute to him. But I don't think Jon will wield Dawn, especially in the books where imo it's destined for Ned Dayne.
It has crossed my mind that the show could be saving riding Rhaegal for season 8 in order to reveal Jon's parentage. The things that make me doubt it are: 1. Jon doesn't have any interaction with this dragon per the leaks, so there wouldn't be much time for them to bond. He only pets Drogon. 2. The wight hunt would have been a perfect opportunity to have Jon be airlifted by himself by Rhaegal, in a similar way to how Dany was rescued by Drogon in season five. 3. I had always assumed Dany would lose one dragon to Euron/fAegon and one dragon to the Others in the books, so she'd only be left with Drogon (as GRRM's initial outline only had one dragon iirc, so the others seemed like fodder to me).elybe wrote: ↑Sun Jul 23, 2017 1:26 pmI agree that Longclaw will probably be Jon's fire sword. That gun has been hung on the wall pretty conspicuously with Beric and Thoros. However, I'm not sure why we're ruling out dragon-riding on the sole basis that it doesn't happen in episode 6 in particular. Would you want Jon's first time riding a dragon to be an airlift rescue, heaped on with a bunch of other people? Another gun hung on the wall this season is that Dany has Drogon, the Night King has Viserion, and then there's Rhaegal all by his lonesome. Two living dragons, two living Targaryens. Why would we expect Jon to claim Rhaegal before he even knows his parentage? Wouldn't that seem just a touch odd to anyone?
I am 99% sure Jorah will get Heartsbane in season 8 because: 1. He will befriend Sam in season seven. 2. Sam and Jorah will both end up North and he will give it to him when it's time to fight (Sam will be in Winterfell by the end of season 7 and Jorah will get there in 8).Pigeon wrote: ↑Sun Jul 23, 2017 1:31 pmI was hoping Jorah would get Heartsbane, as that would give him an advantage against the WW. I'm glad that Jon offers him Longclaw, and glad he refuses it.
So...Thoros dies essentially so that now Beric (or anyone I suppose) can no longer be brought back, I'm thinking. I have to say that I'm happy with the focus on these characters whom I thought might be kind of left in the dust. I love Benjen, it's a shame that he's a goner but he truly isn't alive anymore in a way anyway. Joseph Mawle is awesome.
If Sansa really does find Arya's bag o' faces, I will laugh my ass off and screenshot her expression for eternity. Not pleased that they're setting up Arya just to be her minion to kill LF. Not surprised, just ffs already. Arya has perfectly good reason to off him on her own, of course, but it'll be shown as Sansa being super brilliant genius politician blah blah and others doing the dirty work, as per usual.
The NK must really have an impeccable arm to bring down Viserion on his own.
Lmao make sure you share that screencap with us. Arya giving new meaning to "What's in my bag" YouTube videos. Arya will be dumbed down this season: she learned how to spot lies from the faceless men, yet she gets tricked by LF
The NK sounds like an Olympic javelin thrower
