I am not so sure about the next Lord Tarly. I think that when he took his vows to father no children and to hold no lands, he thereby renounced his title, and thus to pass it on to his children.Gilly was pregnant at the end, however. Presumably, that will be the next Lord Tarly (though I don't see how he could marry her, so it would have to be legitimized first).
I have not seen any episodes of GoT.Hub says there's a split second right before Tyrion finds Jamie and Cercei's bodies where you can see the shadow of one of the crew.
I think Bran probably released him from that vow, else he would have been shipped back to the Wall with Jon. Instead, he seems to be the royal maester, complete with chain and a few links. However, maesters do swear a similar vow to that of the Night's Watch, although I don't know if the show ever addressed that.I am not so sure about the next Lord Tarly.

I also very much doubt that Westerosi law -- since it's so strict on illegitimacy and its disqualifications -- would regard Sam and Gilly's baby as legitimate, since I don't see how he can legally marry without being released from his vows.
Westerosi law takes the oath sworn by the Night's Watch very seriously, remember -- joining the Watch is, among other things, an alternative to the death penalty and deserters are summarily executed on sight by whichever lord or lady dispenses justice in those parts. So I can't see how Westerosi law and custom can recognise any form of marriage entered into by someone who has sworn it, and more than it can recognise a bigamous marriage.
Sam is close to the crown now and there is not a lot of chance that Bran is very upset by bastardy after Jon. I think there's a fairly large chance that he'd legitimize a son of his Grand Maester if asked, and the choice would be entirely his.I also very much doubt that Westerosi law -- since it's so strict on illegitimacy and its disqualifications -- would regard Sam and Gilly's baby as legitimate, since I don't see how he can legally marry without being released from his vows.
If you think GoT is somehow unique in the levels of nitpicking it gets, have you even paid attention to media in the age of the internet? Seriously, the depths of scrutiny have nothing to do with the final episodes being a bit disappointing and everything to do with the show being one of the biggest (if not the biggest) televisual phenomena ever. People pick and dig over everything. If a piece of media is even vaguely nerdy, then Youtube, Reddit, Twitter, etc. will be awash in commentators obsessing over every detail and mistake. The only thing that makes GoT different is how mainstream a phenomenon it became. It took a particular style of pop culture obsession, once reserved for the geekiest of geeks and made it something done by everyone. Even if the last couple of seasons of GoT turned out to be the greatest piece of media humankind had ever created, people would be digging over every little detail in exactly the same way they are now. To think this has something to do with the end being a bit of a letdown only shows that you know nothing (John Snow).That said, I find it quite telling that people were paying so much attention to the little things, looking for shadows, coffee cups, water bottles etc that the show's writing and the acting were failing miserably to keep the viewer's attention. I could understand that happening maybe after several repeated viewings but mere seconds after the show is over, screen grabs and debates/tirades are posted.
That's just clever marketing by the counselling service; make a tongue in cheek press release about counselling for GoT fans, get yourself some column inches so people read your url.Bark.com says their counselors will listen to grief-stricken fans vent about anything from plot twists to writing decisions.www.foxla.com
AFAICT this appears to be a real news station's site....
There was also that potential in Season 9, Episode 12 of Doctor Who, when Ashildr (Maisie Williams) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) take off in a spare tardis.I am like 90% sure this was entirely done to set up a spin off for her character, since she isnone of the more popular characters overall. It sets up to do literally anything they want and have her wanter around Xena style in a blank slate fantasy land. They could even do some sort of GOT version of Orcs and Elves.
Thanks. I'm not sure either now. I did read somewhere that, altogether, 15 people voted in the election, so the electorate is clearly wider than the heads of 7 (now 6) great houses.Sickly boy Robin (his name in the show) Arryn was the young man next to Royce. I kept wondering who he was until I realized Robin had done grown up. (Don't remember if they both voted though.)
