Dream Directors for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

Miguel Sapochnik

Notable episodes directed: Hardhome, Battle of The Bastards, The Winds of Winter

Miguel hinted at 2016 Comic Con that he could be coming back for season 8 and it would be an actual crime if he didn’t. Miguel is most likely the go to choice for the penultimate and Finale. Additionally, Miguel saved 6x09, because the time constraints set by D&D were ridiculous. 

David Nutter

Notable episode directed: The Rains of Castamere, Mother’s Mercy

David Nutter was originally suppose to direct “The Spoils of War” but couldn’t due to complications from surgery. We can assume that he will come back season 8. He directed probably the most defining moment in Game of Thrones history, ‘The Red Wedding’. I can see David directing an episode with high emotional pay off. Jon’s parentage reveal or Dany’s descent into madness.

[Sidenote: Mark Shakman, director of ‘Spoils of War’ will not be coming back for season 8.]

Michelle Maclaren

Notable episodes directed: Oathkeeper, The Bear and the Maiden Fair 

Since Michelle has history with directing Jamie’s most pivotal moments, it wouldn’t be too far fetched if she is back to direct Jamie when he comes to Winterfell. 

Jack Bender

Notable episodes directed: The door

This was an amazing episode that showed exactly how flashbacks in GotT were suppose to look, I don’t know what that was in 7x07. If we get another flashback (I think it will be aLittleFinger flashback) he needs to handle that episode.

Daniel Sackheim

Notable episodes directed: Book of The Stranger

This directer is strictly for Jonsa lovers, he directed Sansa’s reunion with Jon at the wall. The episode that inspired a thousand fics. I could see him directing the episode that reveals Jonsa. 

Rian Jonhnson is my wild card, he directed the epic ‘Ozymandias’ of Breaking Bad. Rian was tapped on the shoulder by D&D to direct an episode in the earlier seasons, but scheduling got in the way. At the time Rian said that he would still love to do it, so maybe.

Honorable mention Alex Graves; directed The Mountain and The Viper; amazing episode.

With the heat that Alan Taylor got for ‘Beyond The Wall’ and his ignorant comments, not sure he will be back, even though D&D wrote the trash.

Hopefully my dream list comes true. It’s amazing.

Jon as John Bender, Sansa as Claire Standish

“Remember how you said your parents use you to get back at each other? Wouldn’t I be OUTSTANDING in that capacity?” 

anonymous asked:

real talk, What would the people in Asoiaf Bend? Targareans are fire of course, Martells are mostly Air(or sand-earthbenders. and tyrions a nonbender. Ayras a waterbender thats all i've really worked out. What do you think?

hmmmmm this is a very intriguing question

You can go by house or you can go by character (Targs would be fire benders either way, that or non-benders: hello Viserys)

I love love love the idea of Rhaegar being the avatar and after his death no one knowing who the next one is

The Night’s Watch is comprised of all kinds of benders (water benders helped build and maintain the wall). They also had a high number of non-benders specializing in blocking bending, though that is now a dying art. Wildlings have mostly air and water benders… Which makes the Wall slightly more interesting and complicated (perhaps it acts as a barrier against bending, you can’t bend while being in contact with it, because of maaagic).

I can see the Starks being mostly water benders, however they get it from their mother(Tullys are water benders). This goes against what we know of the water tribe living where it’s cold etc but I just really fancy Ned, Arya and Jon being earth benders and Arya becoming a metal bender(even though they have a sword named ice, whatever). Sansa is definitely a water bender who learns to heal, Bran can move plants by using the water inside of them and access their memories, Rickon is a natural bloodbender and Robb is just a run of the mill water bender (sorry Robb).

The Baratheons are generally earth benders, Robert was a metal bender and Renly was a non-bender a fact which made Stannis even angrier that Robert gave him Storm’s End. Robert’s bastards are all exceptional earth benders and Gendry is a metal bender.

Martells are air benders, with a few fire benders popping up here and there. Doran is an air bender and while it’s known that air bending is mostly a defensive style, air can make a fire much stronger or snuff it out completely.

The Lannisters are non-benders. They don’t need bending they have money. Tywin married off Cersei (and was planning to marry her to the Avatar) so there could finally be a bender in the family. It would also not make it immediate apparent but still questionable that none of Cersei’s children can bend and add another layer to Joffrey’s daddy issues.

Tyrells as water benders, cause they just strike me as such. Loras can bloodbend without thinking and Margaery has a more calming, nurturing approach to her bending. Garland and Olenna don’t bend and Willas used to be a very powerful bender until Oberyn accidentally hurt him and also blocked his bending.

The Greyjoys could be air benders, despite the more obvious choice. After all, drowning has more to do with lack of air than it has with the presence of water. Also the supposed horn that exists makes me want to call them air benders even more. (I still haven’t convinced myself they shouldn’t be water benders btw but I like them as air benders.)

Melisandre is in contact with the spirit world and shows signs of being a fire bender. Davos is a water bender, he used mist to smuggle and it was how he managed to escape death on the Blackwater. Arryn is obviously an air bender… and that is all I can think of right now.

EDIT: forgot to mention that all wargs use energy/spirit bending to enter another body also more headcanons here
