Game of Thrones Season 7 Predictions/Expectations

*Click on the images for the sources


  • Dany starts conquering Westeros piece by piece with the help of Dorne (Sandsnakes/Martell), half of the Iron Islands (Greyjoy siblings) and the Reach (Tyrell).Related image
  • Cersei, the self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, allies herself with Euron Greyjoy of the Iron Islands to fight Dany.Image result for game of thrones season 7
  • Euron shows his true colours, using his arsenal of queer priests, magical items and (probably) dragonhorn from the East to emerge as a truly menacing villain of the show. His crazy matches (or outperforms) Cersei’s crazy.Image result for game of thrones season 7 euron
  • Euron binds one of Dany’s dragons to him.
  • Another dragon goes to Jon Snow, who allies himself with the Brotherhood without Banners, the Hound, perhaps even Dany (although I doubt Dany will be ready to help him fight a growing threat of the White Walkers she believes to be a myth) and the rest of the Starks. Speaking of which-
  • Stark reunion. Image result for game of thrones season 7 Bran the Greenseer crosses the Wall and finally reunites with Sansa Stark and Jon Snow, now the new bloodraven. Meanwhile Arya Stark reunites with the Hound, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark in Winterfell, armed with the knowledge of the Faceless Men.
  • The Wall comes crashing down, finally allowing the White Walkers to enter the realm.Image result for game of thrones season 7  the wall comes down
  • One of the dragon dies. Either at the hands of the White Walkers or by the hands of Euron, or Cersei or somebody else.
  • Bran informs Jon about his visions about Jon’s true parentage. Meanwhile, Sam (now in Oldtown learning to be a Maester) finds documents confirming Rhaegar’s only surviving son – Jon Snow.Image result for game of thrones season 7  bran
  • As Cersei and Euron lose (I think the dragon bound to Euron’s will is the one that dies) and Cersei, in her last moments orders her servants to burn the whole city down. Jaime, flashing back to when the Mad King Aerys Targ ordered the same and driving a sword through this king’s back, realizes how truly “gone” Cersei is and chokes her to death, perhaps even drawing the Widow’s Wail (Joffrey’s sword that he now has in possession) through Cersei’s heart. Ironic how the sword is called the Widow’s Wail.Image result for game of thrones season 7  jaime
  • Jaime joins the Starks and Brienne in the North, using his Valyrian Sword Widow’s Wail to kill some White Walkers, while Jon uses his Valyrian Sword Longclaw and Brienne uses HER Valyrian Sword (which was actually Jaime’s) Oathkeeper.
  • We finally get more information on Rhaegar Targ, why he ran away and eloped with Lyanna Stark and all the details of Robert’s Rebellion.Image result for game of thrones season 7  rhaegar
  • Meanwhile, as the Wall falls, from its rubble rises Ice Dragons (Dragons made of ice or from cold). One of Dany’s “Fire Dragon” and one of these Ice Dragons go to Jon Snow, and finally, he emerges as the “Song of Ice and Fire”.Image result for game of thrones season 7
  • ENDING of SEASON 7: The Wall falling and with it the rise of the Ice Dragons as we see the White Walkers finally enter the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, as everyone wake up from their horrible ignorance to the fact that the Long Night is nigh.Image result for game of thrones season 7

Heya Bleedsters!
With the season 7 of Game of Thrones 7 days away, I thought I would write a post about 
my predictions/expectations from the upcoming season. These are in no way confirmations or leaks, and are my opinions. Although most are well calculated predictions, many are just fantasy. We will have to see on the 16th of July to see how many come true.
Love,
K.

Dhinchak Music

It is a wonderfully typical Sunday night. Okay, not so typical. And I am only kidding myself when I say it is a wonderful night. Because I am tired, and I want to relax. And the only way to relax is some interesting and memorable. In other words – Dhinchak Music.

Dhinchak is a word that is usually used to describe something unique, memorable and interesting*

That’s when I fire up my browser and type in Youtube. There are two recommendations there: First is Game of Thrones Season 6 Original Soundtrack (GoT OST). I middle-click it. Meanwhile, the second recommendation is a song called Daaru by someone called Dhinchak Pooja. I chuckle at the recommendation. Clearly, Youtube is drunk again.

But it certainly arouses my curiosity. Out of amusement more than anything, I open it. And I listen. And I listen once more. I click on the next song, Selfie maine… whatever the name is. And I listen to it once more, just like before. The Game of Thrones Season 6 OST lies forgotten.

Now before you block my blog or renounce your love for my writing and opinions, don’t let me misguide you: Ms. Pooja’s songs are anything but tasteful. They are badly edited, with horrible lyrics, crazy beats and a nonsense video in the background. However, they are ear-worms. And it surprises me to see millions and millions of views on all her songs. Why is that?

I finally return to the actual Dhinchakness I was looking forward to tonight. The Game of Thrones Soundtrack. And it moves me. It fills my heart with melody. It nurtures my soul. And all that other gooey crap. You know, the kind poets use to describe blissful things.

Something strikes a chord inside my head. I find a striking resemblance between the two polarizing, contrasting opposite pieces of music: both are memorable. Both are interesting too. And Dhinchak kind of means a little bit of memorable and uniqueness. Which also means that Ms. Pooja’s music is actually Dhinchak!

It should sadden me that such songs are gaining popularity amongst the masses, but it doesn’t. You know why? Because while Daaru makes me twitch uncontrollably for the entire duration, it also leaves a mark behind on my mind… my soul… and certainly my ears. Just like GoT OST did. Althought GoT OST left a comparatively positive mark on me, it also similarly made me think about the music the rest of the day.

Ms. Pooja’s songs moved me (in the wrong direction, but still it counts), same distance as GoT OST. And that is all Dhinchak Music is all about. Think back to songs like Friday by Rebecca Black (remember her? American Dhinchak Pooja!), What does the Fox Say, Gangnam Style etc. All these songs have one thing in common: Dhinchakness. They arouse a person’s curiosity, piques everyone’s interest and certainly leaves a noticeable memory, good or bad irrelevant. Nicely played, Ms. Pooja. And while I have no interest in listening to any more of your songs, clearly many still do. So, Good Luck!

P.S: This post is an opinion, and my take on the recent Dhinchak Pooja viral music that is roaming about the Internet. I have written this post with no harmful intentions in mind, nor to shame anyone. No offence intended to anyone.

TVF Tripling S01E02- “Ab Kidhar…?” Review (No Spoilers)

TVF Tripling S01E02

We left the previous episode at celebrations. That is where we pick up Episode 2- “Ab Kidhar?” and it is definitely an amusing start. We see the culture of Rajasthan, with the attire, the music and the grandeur. We wonder what is going on. But guess what? The characters are wondering the same thing.

By now, we know that the Sister (Chanchal) is married to a rich Prince and is living with him in a big palace-like structure. We also know that Chanchal is feigning pregnancy, which her family members do not know. So, they throw her a ceremony of sorts, leaving her siblings Baba and Chitvan in a mix.

I love this episode, because it expands on the character personalities greater than the previous episode did. I mean, the previous one was a pilot episode after all. We get to know these characters more closely. We find out more about their dynamics. It is obvious that Chitvan, the youngest, is a laid-back, cool and never-serious kinda guy. Baba, the eldest, is the opposite; a serious, practical and always-tensed mature adult.

It is a beautiful contrast because it resonates with the siblings watching the episode.  Most of the brothers and sisters are opposites. Baba and Chitvan are no exceptions.

Chitvan's DJing skills

Amidst the celebrations, we are shown Chitvan’s Deejaying skills. While amusing to us, it is shocking to the old-fashioned crowd as Chitvan remixes a song in a trippy way. Get it? Trippy… Cuz the show is called Tripling… No? Just me?

The transition from the folk music to this remix, electro music is pleasing. It is smooooooth. It makes me scream in hysteria “LOOK AT THEIR STUNNED FACES!”

As the episode progresses, we learn more. We find out what is really happening, why the lies, why the confusion about the pregnancy etc. We learn more about Chanchal’s husband, about his familial history, about his personality (which comes off as pretentious and snobbish, so kudos to the actor for making me believe it!) and the drama. Yes, there is drama.

Chanchal's Prince

Crazy that Chanchal’s husband refers to everyone as “aap”, even Chitvan. He seems young, ancient and dim-witted which makes the viewers’ wonder why someone as straight-forward and delightfully cool Chanchal would ever marry this tool. But perhaps that is a question for another episode.

There is a lot of drama in the second half of the episode. There is a lot less road-trip, which is a bit disappointing. But hey! You know what? They can’t show that alone. They have to add in some mass, some depth. Else, it will just be another boring show.

TVF Tripling Family Drama

All in all, this was a definitely great continuation of the previous episode and dangerously addictive. I truly and whole-heartedly want to watch the next episode, where greater things await.

Sibling chemistry: BRILLIANT

Concept: Check

Plotline: Check

Comedy: Check

Continuity: Check

Do check this episode out and tell me what you thought about it! And does it, by any chance, remind you of your sibling?
