So many plot twists in one episode.

Major spoiler.
This has got to be the first time that I cried because of a death scene. Holy mother of god. Fuck this shit. Arya's blind and Jon Snow is dead. Might as well kill Daenerys and get this show over with.

I know what you guys mean. I'm leaning towards #TeamWhiteWalker myself, as we're very rapidly running out of people who count as the "good guys".

Also, it's funny. As pleased as I was to see Cersei get her comeuppance...I actually kind of feel sorry for her, and want to see the Sparrows brutally dealt with. On that note, kind of stupid for them to let her go back to the castle where her song, the king, can take orders from her and bring about their demise. And finally, in case anyone was wondering, that wasn't Lena Headey, but a body double in the walk of atonement.

That wasn't her? That was the only thing I enjoyed the whole episode and they tricked me?! :lol:

I had a feeling the Fire Woman would revive Jon since she's interested in him but Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) said in an interview that he's not coming back.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/game-thrones-star-finale-shocker-802411

Harington revealed that the show's producers made it pretty clear his character was done. "I had a sit-down with Dan [Weiss] and David [Beinhoff], we did the Tony Soprano walk [letting an actor know they’re being whacked]. And they said, 'Look, you’re gone, it’s done.'"

Harington also revealed what his last day on set was like, saying that he was given a wrap party but he just "wanted to f— off out of there," adding that he got a tear in his eye and was more "moved and emotional" than he thought he would be. However, he said he didn't receive any special parting gifts, joking that "Rose got a f—ing bow and arrow and I didn’t get shit! So yeah, I’m definitely less popular than Rose."

So what the hell does it matter who Jon Snow's real parents are now that he's dead?

As I understand it, they are at least following the books in that regard (although the way it went down was different). I agree, though. Like I said, #TeamWhiteWalker.

Mind you, we still have Tyrion...and Dany, once she gets out of her current predicament.

that time when Daenerys removed her ring. I think she's planning to start another tribe of her own like what she did with Drogo. Marry the leader and be the queen. Kill the Harpys and done!

I think more likely, the ring drop is to leave a trail of "bread crumbs", so that she can be found.

Bummer about my main man getting killed.

Just saw everyone everywhere is listing The Mountain at a ridiculous 400+ lbs range (190 kg).

He's 6'9 (apparently, looks a bit shorter but that's not the point).

Shaq was 325 in his prime playing days. There is no way he is that heavier than Shaq. Heck, I don't even think he is as heavy as Shaq.

May want to use spoiler tags for that 1st sentence Menopauss.

Crazy ass season finale indeed, certainly not as lackluster as last season's. Still can't believe they got rid of the character who was pretty much the unofficial hero of the series the whole time (not sure about how it transpires in the books). Good thing that Sam and his chick left on time I guess. Now I just wanna see Castle Black getting ravaged by white walkers.

That walk of shamemust have been insane to shoot, I did notice some moments when it looked a little off somehow but I didn't think they were using a body double for that...

I think most people will probably go for Tyrion at this point, I certainly will. Also hoping the Mountain will slaughter all the Sparowes the old fashioned way.

Sorry to bring bad news.

Edit: Unless you meant it was so good you didn't notice, in which case...my bad.

I haven't read them as yet, but I have heard that it happens in the books, too. Slightly differently, but ultimately the same outcome.
