They aren't all dead already?  I was under the impression that they had burned through so many actors that they had to start bringing in children as replacements.  Like that one girl the internet was going crazy for an episode or two ago.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Oh she doesn't die, and she's still great.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Huh. Holy ****. Maybe.

Tyrion has long been rumored to be a targ, his mom died in child birth too

Though, Dany didn't die. But she didn't really have the kid.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The mad king was pretty rapey.

Though if what you say is true Erops then it would mean all of the obvious "author favourites" who are unlikely to permanently die until very late in the story are half-siblings, aside from Arya, who I guess is properly Jon's cousin.

Lady Mormont steals every scene in which she appears.

I do have one question if anyone has read the books.  Is death by childbirth a thing in House Targaryen, or perhaps for non-Targaryen women who breed with Targaryen men?  That might help explain the incest as well.

Without access to  modern medicine  dying during childbirth is a thing for anyone during this  medieval   fantasy period,Targaryen incest may have started as an attempt keep their bloodlines "Pure" while keeping power within their family,obviously this made their genetics worse.

Is that Samuel L Jackson, or a really good impression of him?  I'm almost tempted to actually watch the video.

I'm just sayin', I don't see anyone else commanding dragons.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.
