She’s sparring with Brienne of Tarth, which was a bizarre second, I feel, for Sansa,” Rodgers stated. “To see her little sister, who’s unbelievable—and now [Sansa] is aware of [Arya] has this listing that [Sansa] thought [Arya] was joking about—however no, she’s most likely been going out and killing individuals.”
On his favourite theories—together with a highly regarded one which entails Jon Snow (Package Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage):
“I feel that Jon Snow, Daenerys, and the Hand of the Queen [Tyrion Lannister]—I feel they’re all associated. Three dragons, three riders, three siblings,” Rodgers stated. “We all know from Bran, the Three-Eyed Raven, that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow’s father. And that might make Daenerys and Jon [relatives]. After which Tyrion, we don’t know who his mom is, who Tywin slept with. The Mad King may need been his father, I feel there’s some form of relationship. At the least Jon Snow and Daenerys are going to be working collectively, and they’re mining the dragon glass.”

I simply love this present, and I wish to focus.”
