Yeah, you are correct and I had pretty much missed that. This article touches down on that, and harkens back to s1 and the death of Jon Arryn.My thoughta are he was writing notes to the lords of westeros revealing jon’s lineage in the hopes of reassuring them of continuity after Dany died of poisoning. I think the little girl was helping varys attempt to murder dany via poison as she mentioned dany wouldnt eat and the guards were becoming suspicious.
I fear the same thing, but let's hope not.GRRM will be dead by the time the books actually get finished by Steven King or a ghost writer.

We've essentially got:
- Arya becoming a faceless man... only to become an ocean explorer
- Jon becoming the greatest leader in the world... only to join a band of leaderless men
- Bran becoming a three eyed raven... except he never really used the power to impact the story
- the Unsullied threatening what will happen to the kingdom if the rightful heir to the throne is released... but they leave the kingdom for Naath
- We've got all these stories about how power hungry houses are, then a supremely hated man from the most hated house figures everything out in 3 minutes and puts a secondary character on the throne
- And let's not forget we centered a huge portion of the story around Dany building loyal followers only to have no reaction to her death and jump right into some stupid joke about democracy.
It's ridiculously rushed for cool fight scenes.
Why do you want things to make sense when you could have really great war scenes?So how does anyone besides John know that Dany is dead and that he did it? When he left the throne room did he tell the guards who let him in with weapons that BTW Drogon just flew off with her dead body? And if your answer is that the guards were there too, why the hell did they not kill John then?
Why would the other lords not want to be free as well? Why would they agree to that? Why was the first suggestion not to have the 7 Kingdoms be 7 Kingdoms?
