8 seasons, that leaves time to forget …
While we recently revealed to you how Daenerys was able to train her dragons in Game of Thrones, today we are looking at the intrigues of the series and especially those which did not really succeed. Yes, a lot of seemingly very important topics were covered without necessarily having a big impact afterwards, and since the series will never give us the last word, we can only hope that George RR Martin does it in his books.
Azor Ahai, the Prince who was promised
Wrong answer – Credit (s): hbo
The prophecy that Azor Ahai had to make his return, played by one of the characters, to overcome the long night and the White Walkers never really happened. If it was important for Melisandre, who first designated Stannis and then Jon as being “the Prince who was promised”, we know that neither of them killed the Night King. And we’re not even talking about Daenerys, named as Chosen by Red Priestess Kinvara.
Quaithe de Quarth
Like some characters from Game Of Thrones, Quaithe looked important for one episode before she was completely put aside. We thought we would see her again because of her strange but truthful words, but she disappeared after her appearance in Quarth.
Jon “Aegon” Targaryen

Why weren’t there more reactions after the revelation on the true origins of Jon Snow? The son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen certainly played a major role in the story, but the same can’t be said for his origins. Since Varys is believed to have sent scrolls to spread the news across Westeros, why haven’t the locals come forward to have him ascend the Iron Throne?
Babies abandoned to the White Walkers
Craster abandoned his son – Credit (s): hbo
A very fuzzy story set up in the fourth season of Game Of Thrones, the plot of the young sons of Craster given as an offering to the White Walkers was clearly not explored as it deserved. Certainly we imagine that they all became White Walkers in their turn, but in how long? And is this really the case for all of them?
Bran Stark and the title of Lord

More an inconsistency than an oversight, we wonder why the show insisted on showing us a scene in which Bran explicitly says he can never be Lord of Winterfell, nor Lord of anything, because he is the Three-Eyed Crow, to later become King of Westeros. No explanation has been given for this drastic change in ambition and it is one of the many black spots of season 8 of Game of Thrones.
