  1. Spoiler:
    In the show Tyrian begs Jon Snow to kill Dany. Jon does so knowing it would mean the end of his own life. In a sense, the Lannisters ended Valyria by destroying the last of the Valyrian houses. Yet another event is Jamie killing the mad king during Roberts Rebellion which helped result in the last of the Targaryens fleeing their kingdom. Maybe the prophesy is metaphorical for the end of the Targaryens, the last of the Valyrians.

  2. 3:03 God Damn It! Stop showing that picture! That's not Valyria!!!!!! It's a giant middle finger to every book reader who dared to criticize the show. p.s. You've shown it too much and I can't watch you anymore.

  3. So long story short – valyrians were retarded and brought it on themselves by killing each other between incest orgies. Given their beliefs they deserved it.

  4. I found the myths and legends in the book far more interesting….if you think about westros is pretty boring compared to the rest of it's world.

  5. I'd hate to be the one correcting George RR Martin, but The Doom is not akin to Pompeii, the analogy is incorrect.
    It's like Crete with the Siberian Mantle Plume that caused the Cambrian extinction.

    Pompeii and krakatoa are a joke compared with The Doom.

  6. The Doom of Valyria would be a great spin off for the series. The end is quite well known, but the process to get there, be it magical, political or a combination of both, would be a marvel to uncover.

  7. Jorah and Tyrion never go through Old Valyria – it's a stupid thing on the show, Tyrion with Young Griff sail on the river Rhoyne and pass under the Bridge of Dream where stonemen reside
