I prefer these short videos. To the point and not filled with pointless dumb fan theories repeated 8 times over.

I don't recall, is it even explained how Shireen contracts greyscale in the books? It's been a long time since I did a read through.

I think Greyscale is basically a skin tumor of some kind

martin seems keen on elements and the gods governing them. if greyscale is some kind of reflection of the wight walkers then where are the other 2 elements? its stretch but theres a fish faced creature mentioned that can mate with humans. as to a fire version of these i have no clue other then dragons. the dragons being fires version of the others kind of tears the whole theory down. were wight walkers, stone men and the slushers all require human interaction to make more dragons dont. so either the whole theory of these elemental parasites is wrong or there is some kind of fire humanoids that havnt been mentioned or were wiped out

Could Jorah have burned it when it it was fresh or even just cut it off?

I always thought greyscale was the result of experiments by the people of old valyria who were trying to become dragon(like). This obviously failed and may even have caused the doom of old valyria. That is my tin foil hat theory anyways.....

What, because dragons have hard skin, and people with the disease have hard skin? That's a very, very, loose connection. By the same logic you might as well say the Others/White Walkers made the disease because ice is hard, or that it came from the velociraptors on Sothoryos.

So the Valyrians were trying to be dragon furries?

then the Dragons flew to Sothoryos and devolved overtime into Wyverns without the care and reliance of the Valyrians

perhaps, maybe, their Dragons saw their madness as foreign invaders and destroyed every last one that turned burning down Valyria in the process

So, let's imagine Tge White Walkers manage to kill every living beung in Wrsteros, turning them all into wights. Adding billions of undead to his army. Then in Essos, the Grey Scale disease spreads through the whole continent, making every living being a stone man/woman. When the White Walkers inevitably bring Winter to Essos, and they start a war against the billions of Stone Men, who wins?
Billions of wights vs billions of stone men. Who you got your money on?

Shrouded lord is a greyscale victim who died and became a statue (lifeless stone body) until a white walker came and reanimated him possibly mixing magics and allowing him to keep some sentience.

So if a child with greyscale can't contract the disease, why don't they get the survivors to kill the stone men out of pity?

How do the affected ppl get to the Valyrian river though? Do families drop their affected family members off at the ruins or something but

At the end of season 5, Jorah holds Daenerys hand, shouldn't she get greyscale?

In the show, when Dany is attacked in the fighting pits, Jorah takes her by the hand and tries to lead her to safety. Could this mean that Dany has Greyscale, or was Jorah not far enough in to the disease to spread it to her (or is it just another thing in season 5 not thought through fully)?

Awe, so short!! Too short!! Do we think Jorah will be cured? If so, who would be able to cure him? Thanks found someone to stop the spread on Shireen, who do you suppose cured her?

Wake Dragons from stone...could people affected with Greyscale eventually become dragons if they last long enough? Perhaps the 'disease' actually causes those infected to become an 'egg'?

The shrouded lord with his stoney court......perhaps someone might wake dragons out of STONE. Targaryen stone men 🤔🤔

What I would like to see is Jorah go back to the ruins of Valyria. He could find some important information on why it blew up and also how to cure greyscale..

Leprosy. Gives me Morrowind flashbacks. Maybe Jorah will find a Telvanni wizard living inside a giant mushroom. He won't cure the disease, but he will cure the fatal and negative aspects. Making Jorah immune to disease.
Jorah = Nevarine *CONFIRMED*

The shrouded lord is interesting though.... makes me think of awakening a dragon from stone. He is shrouded so could he be the 3d dragon in hiding. Valyria would be a good place to hide in plain sight. Jorah could find the 3d dragon next season.

Could Greyscale have been responsible for the end of dragons? There are these "statues" on Dragonstone.

Wait! How could you miss such an important assumption?! Could the white walker lady who slept with the leader of the watch be exactly the same woman who kissed the statue? Then who is this lady?

Despite the quantity of dicks GoT makes Mormont eat, he's a far nicer and more accessible character than he is in the books, where he spends a shit-load of time just sulking. I think the removal of Jorah in the show will be temporary, but it seems to leave Dany reliant on Tyrion for any kind of counsel. Jorah and Bariston were always the ones to advise restraint, and Daario advocated violence. I'm guessing we will start to see Dany leaning more heavily towards the Fire and Blood side of her nature, and moving away from the compassion she learned through her own shitty experiences.

Greyscale sounds like it was partly inspired by Leukemia... with the whole kids often surviving - but it being a death sentence for adults.

OK, but what if the Others are actually Wind because of the cold winds that follow them & the Children of the Forest are Heart because they made the Others by stabbing men in the heart? And with their powers combined *JON SNOW IS CAPTAIN PLANET!*

I think it would be a great twist if greyscale can only be cured through the white walkers.
