On his favourite characters:
“I’m an enormous Jon Snow fan. I like Arya, as a result of she’s again within the combine now. She’s sparring with Brienne of Tarth, which was a bizarre second, I believe, for Sansa,” Rodgers mentioned. “To see her little sister, who’s unimaginable—and now [Sansa] is aware of [Arya] has this record that [Sansa] thought [Arya] was joking about—however no, she’s most likely been going out and killing individuals.”
On his favourite theories—together with a very talked-about one which entails Jon Snow (Package Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage):
“I believe that Jon Snow, Daenerys, and the Hand of the Queen [Tyrion Lannister]—I believe they’re all associated. Three dragons, three riders, three siblings,” Rodgers mentioned. “We all know from Bran, the Three-Eyed Raven, that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow’s father. And that would make Daenerys and Jon [relatives]. After which Tyrion, we don’t know who his mom is, who Tywin slept with. The Mad King may need been his father, I believe there’s some type of relationship. At the least Jon Snow and Daenerys are going to be working collectively, and they’re mining the dragon glass.”

“There are simply so many storylines, and it’s important to actually take note of sustain,” Rodgers says. “With these reveals, I’m dialed in and I actually wish to tie every part collectively. I like the [‘previously on’ recaps] to start out the episodes. It’s very fascinating stuff. I don’t like lots of people speaking throughout it; I’d reasonably watch alone. I simply love this present, and I wish to focus.”
