Baelish did manipulation from shadows, but now that he is a Lord, he is much more noticeable. I can't wait to see him die.

I like checking out the theories people out on YouTube, like Tyrion and Jon Snow might be Targarean.

Even an assumption is out there that Hodor is a Targaeryan. Good times.

That reminds me, there was an unintentionally (maybe?) funny moment in the second episode, when Bran asked Hodor what happened to him, and Hodor of course replies "Hodor". It was probably meant to be rhetorical, but the way the line was delivered, it was like he was genuinely expecting an answer.

Speaking of theories though, there's a pretty good one about Hodor. It may be off the mark, but it does make sense.

Because I got into the series late, that's basically how I consumed the first four seasons. I don't think I could do it now, though. Once you're into a show, you're much more aware of spoilers; whatever passed over my head before, I'm going to pay attention to now. It gives us something to look forward to each week, too.

I'm glad Jon Snow didn't show mercy on Olly. For a sec, I thought maybe he would but already, we're starting to see a different Jon Snow. He's gonna be a lot colder and gives no effs anymore. Great season so far.

Another strong episode, with a brilliant performance from Emilia Clarke's body double.

Seriously though, even though we're still seeing God Mode Ramsay, it was nice to finally see a Stark reunion where someone doesn't get killed just before it can happen. Seems like they're setting up some epic battles for Episodes 9 and 10.

Actually read that she wouldn't be showing off any of her parts after Season 1 but eh win-win.

Great episode just a whole lot of plot holes.

Why didn't any of those warriors ever try to stop her? lmao. Also love the way they all bowed down after seeing her emerge from the fire. "Shit, they're bowing. Do we do the same?" "Ah, fuck it. Fine."

I'd heard that she had a no-nudity clause since Season 4, but she's also clarified that she's been misquoted about her stance on nudity and sex scenes. She had a couple of nude scenes in Season 3.

Those aren't really plot holes. The Dothraki didn't stop her because they didn't see her as a threat, or an equal in any way. By the time they even had an inkling that she wasn't messing around, and not someone to be messed around with, they were trapped and surrounded by fire. As for them all bowing down...well, she's just emerged unscathed from the fire that killed their leaders. It's not unfathomable that a lot of them would think that she's some kind of supernatural being, and thus someone they should revere and follow. Crowd mentality being what it is, once a bunch of them decide "She's who we'll follow now, I'm bowing", others will see that and think "Yeah, they're right" and do the same.

About the nudity, she told british tv that she was worried about being "type casted" which is why when she was approached by the 50 shades of grey crew about her being the girl in it her people shut that straight down

might be the most emotional death in the show so far. the one true innocent the show had

i have reached a point where i need the Arya story to start going some where and i personally hope it goes down the path of her wanting to remain as Arya.

i hope they dont go to far into time travel, never been a big fan of it myself.

as a side note, those were some spectacular breasts

I agree. It certainly seems they were hinting at that with her reaction to the on-stage portrayal of her family. A girl still has a name, and has not forgotten her past.

Pretty amazing ending indeed, had me stunned for a few minutes there.
Agreed on the Arya stuff, it's beginning to look like it's not going anywhere, hopefully not the case. Great episode overall.

Hopefully it's building to something, and just being stretched out a little to give Maisie Williams more to do over the course of a season, kind of like Theon's torture in Season 3.

this was a slow episode for me, not much i cared about. even the benjen "reveal" was off. it was obvious it was him the second you saw him but they kept it a "secret" for some reason til the end of the episode. i did however get what i wanted from the Arya story line though i really wish we got the fight this week instead of having to wait until next. the dragon seemed like some fan service thing. it was almost like they knew it was a slow episode and they wanted something cool to end it with.

Agreed, which was kinda expected given the intensity of the previous episode, but I also do wish Arya had kicked that bitch's ass in this episode, or at least that something awful had finally happened to the high sparrow...

Hopefully, they're building to that. I'm undecided as to whether Margery has truly been converted by the High Sparrow, or whether she's outsmarted him with a long con. I'm leaning towards the latter...or at least hoping, perhaps.

i wonder what people consider a fit end for ramsey? something like theon cutting on his pecker and sansa using it to make a strap on to rape him to death? too much? not enough?

most likely he will just get stabbed in the gut and get a quick death and the fans will rage over it

You're never going to satisfy everyone, so don't even worry about trying to do that. I think a fitting end would be him getting cocky in his scheming, only to have it blow up in his face as the Starks take back Winterfell. Have Jon impale him with Longclaw, and Sansa deliver a few choice words as he's bleeding out.

Or he's betrayed by a bannerman. "The North Remembers..."

So, no big battles in Episode 7, but some big events nevertheless: return of The Hound, Margaery definitely appearing to be pulling a con, Jon and Sansa beginning their efforts to rally support with limited success, and The Waif stabbing Arya. This being Game of Thrones, anyone can (and obvoiusly does) die, but it would seem a bit anti-climactic to end the latter arc that way. Also, the fact that she didn't drop dead by the end of the episode suggests there's more to the story.

Glad I chose to watch it over most of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, too. Much more entertaining.

Episodes 8, 9, and 10 are usually epic, with 9 often being the biggest of the season (though the cliffhanger ending of Season 5, Episode 10 managed to go one step further). Meanwhile, we're getting close to another season being over. :(

A shame on one hand, but seeing how some television series are dragged out long past their use-by date, it's probably for the best, if the story continues to be well-told.

Agreed. I'm expecting three strong episodes, and another tantalising cliffhanger. D&D know how to push our buttons.

I must admit that I'm not as hyped as a lot of people seem to be about the possibility of Cleganebowl, probably because if the "good" brother wins, so does the High Sparrow. I'm more interested in Jon vs. Ramsey.

So! We finally see The Waif suffer a comeuppance, which is one positive outcome in an episode where things went awry elsewhere. The fact that we did get one positive outcome makes me a little afraid of what's going to happen in Episodes 9 and 10, which as previously noted, usually succeed in being the most epic every season. I know GOT isn't supposed to be all about happy endings, and that is what makes it good, but too many downer endings end up feeling like a shaggy dog story...or indeed, a shaggydog story. The High Sparrow's fall will have to wait, but hopefully Ramsay's is drawing closer.

Speculating on the future, I have a feeling that Cersei is going to end up killing Tommen, though perhaps indirectly, and thereby fulfilling the prophecy that she'll see all three of her children die.

man i love having the hound back. his scenes were my favorite again this week. i am getting a little tired of the dragons always being there at exactly the right time. the arya chase scene was fun stuff but i wish we got to actually see them fight. it was pretty cool though how it went down. seems her time being blind helped out a lot. i think next week will bring an end to ramsey and hopefully in a spectacular way. however i think it wont be a happy ending all around, i think someone else is going to die. too many happy stories this season, someone gonna get taken from us. rickon maybe? would be a "good" character lost but not a fan favorite or anything

I don't know about there being too many happy stories this season, but I agree that there will be a price to pay for any kind of victory by Jon Snow and Sansa.
