So it doesn't seem like you have read the books.... While the show doesn't follow along exactly with the books, many of the things you are pointing
out are known to people who have read the series.
And, btw...Tywin (#5) is dead. You were talking about Tyrion, I presume.
#8 - I don't think that is the Mountain. Looks like something different altogether. Should be interesting to see who and what IT is. I don't think
IT is human.
I think there were some surprises in the season finale:
Death of Myrcella - to be fair, we don't know that she is DEAD. She is poisoned...and dying, for sure. But she isn't dead yet. I would think IF she
does die, they would turn around and go back to Dorne....if only to bring Trystane back to his father. At that point, Ellaria's goose is cooked.
Doran made it quite clear that he will not give her a 3rd chance.
Death of Stannis - again, we don't really know that he is dead. It seemed given that Brienne was on the verge of executing him, but why not SHOW IT
if it happened? There are very few deaths that the writers don't show ON SCREEN - usually those tied to controversy (Shireen, specifically). So I
can't imagine any reason why they would refuse to show Stannis's death....unless he hasn't died yet. I somehow think that Brienne and Stannis will
team up to help Reek/Sansa.
Jon Snow Death - Again...I don't think he is dead, for good. This key is that Melisandre is back at the wall. Just like Thoros of Myr was able to
bring back Beric Dondarrion, I think Melisandre will be able to bring back Jon Snow. I think this is critical for the R + L = J theory and the theory
that Fire (Daenerys) and Ice (Jon) will defeat the whitewalkers together.
then there are the other storylines that must play out -
Bran Stark - he is still with the Children of the Forest/Three Eyed Raven
Rickon Stark - I believe he will actual return to Winterfell to become Warden of the North. In the storyline, Osha is supposed to be taking Rickon to
Last Hearth (House Umber) for safekeeping.
Arya Stark - on her way to becoming an Assassin for the Many-Faced God. I'm curious to see where this will go as assassins in the House of Black &
White don't just get to pick their business at will. But I believe this will lead Arya back to Westeros in some fashion.
Sansa - who the heck knows anymore where Sansa is going. I think she is George RR Martin's favorite red-headed stepchild.
