After joining the Redskins Talk podcast to discuss matters such as Josh Norman's contract and Jimmy Moreland's potential, Fred Smoot got the chance to cover a much more critical topic: Game of Thrones.
HBO's wildly popular and recently very divisive show wraps up this Sunday with the series finale, and Smoot — who would like it if you referred to him by the GoT-ish name Bruce Lee-Roy Targaryen (the Last Dragon) — is all in on one character taking the Iron Throne.
"I'm gonna go with Jon Snow because Bran is the Three-Eyed Raven and his cable cord isn't always plugged in," the ex-Redskin told the hosts during the podcast.
Like many viewers of the show, Smoot is very confused by, well, everything about Bran.
"With him having all these powers, why does he only choose ravens?" he asked. "That's just like me saying, 'It's time to go to war, I'm going to warg into this snail and I'm going to war with y'all."
It's an excellent point. For someone who reportedly has the ability to see just about everything, Bran spends an awful lot of time just chilling and spouting off weird one-liners. Stop doing that, Bran.
Back to Smoot's prediction. While Daenerys is coming off of a strong, somewhat appalling victory over Cersei and Co., he projects Jon to turn on Dany and ultimately rule the Seven Kingdoms. That'd likely throw a wrench into their whole relationship.
"Jon Snow has no other choice but to kill her," Smoot said. "She basically just mowed down King's Landing. There's nothing for her to rule right now."
Yep, that'd throw a wrench into their whole relationship.
If that happens, however, who will Jon choose to be his new wife? Smoot has an answer to that. Two answers, actually.
"He's going to marry not only Sansa, he's going to marry Arya, too," he said. "That's the only way to save House Stark. "
Smoot, who claims to live in Westeros and is insanely well-versed in all things Thrones, agrees with the idea that this season has felt "rushed." Everything has felt crammed, and that's upsetting to him.
Not as upsetting as one totally random figure in the series, though. Smoot would be OK with plenty of other people on the show claiming the Iron Throne aside from Jon, but not this obscure guy.
"I don't like Hot Pie!" he said. "Instead of seeing dragons and fighting, I'm just going to cook sweet potato pies all day."
