I don't normally start threads, but I have been sucked into the slightly mad mess that is the latest Game of Thrones episodes.
Now, this maybe spoilers. This is pure speculation, but you never know!
But I have a horrible/great feeling that the ending that is coming is pretty much a lift of JB's Dark Phoenix work.
Well, from a certain angle!
SPOILERS POTENTIALLY BELOW IF YOU ARE NOT UP TO DATE ON GOT:
I think that it looks like Professor X (Bran), Wolverine (Arya) and the White Queen (Sansa) are going to be running the show at the end....
Whilst Cyclops (Jon) grabs his bag and leaves, all because his girlfriend Dark Phoenix (Dany) turned evil with her special powers (Dragons) and had to die.
This maybe pattern matching (and I haven't read the DP stuff in decades!) but I just noted in the last few episodes that some of these characters are heading towards quite familiar archetypes.
Anyone else watching? And feel the same? Admittedly, WQ is a bit of a stretch, but I couldn't think of a political X-Man.
