Game of Thrones S06E02 05/01/16: "Home"

OK, so who else let out a "Yessss!" like their favorite hockey team scored a goal at approximately 9:55 PM?

If Melisandre had failed, it would have been such a horrible tease by the writers.

Ramsay (Bolton), if he hadn't already, has now supplanted every other character for pure evil.

Also, to continue from the prior thread, it doesn't seem like anyone really believes Tommen is a Baratheon any more.

Tyrion has come so far from how he "released the dragon" in S1.

Ramsey Bolton*.

Tyrion had some balls. The only reason that scene had no sense of suspense for me is because I knew there was no way Tyrion would go out as a McNugget.

Ramsey is a sick SoB. Even though I knew what was going to happen a small part of me had hoped he would just let her go. Not a Ramsey though. He truly is the most evil character on the show.

Theon deciding to return home just as his dad dies is damned convenient.

So Sansa and gang are the only folks in all the realm who know how many starks are left .

Also, Bran's vision should not be overlooked.

2nd episode in and it feels like they are going 100mph.

Needed more glowing. Should have sacrificed bad lord commander for Jon.

I assume the bad guy on bridge is Euron Greyjoy?

Oh, and if you call back to the red priestess putting hexes on the three kings in Stannis' way, they are all dead now.

So Bran saw his aunt Lyanna in his vision. I wonder if he'll have a vision of the tournament at Harrenhal. Or of the Tower of Joy.

It looks like Bran is going to be the conduit for some Stark family back-story. Including, no doubt, the origin of Jon Stark.

(Whose return should have surprised nobody!)

The show is better than it's ever been! Perhaps in part because as a book reader it's now all new to me. I caught myself thinking "Who needs George R. R. Martin?"

I would've liked for Jon to have woken up after being set afire after Melisandre's "failed" attempt. But I'll take it.

I really like Yara and hopefully this storyline will feature a lot more of her.

I knew that baby was doomed from the start. Roose kept waving it to Ramsay's face once too often. I just assumed Ramsay would make the death "accidental" before the baby was born. He is pure evil.

I'm glad they are moving Arya's story along. I was hoping they wouldn't have her beaten up for half a season.

So Jon Snow arose from the dead on Easter Day (Orthodox - Julian calendar).

I was literally laughing when Tyrion kept glancing back at Varys, who would not go any further than the top step.

The way zombie Mountain killed that guy made me laugh.

The way the wildling giant killed that guy made me laugh. It reminded me of Hulk vs. Floki.

The rebel night's watch guys should have been killed instead of imprisoned.

Don't be ridiculous. They should have a fair trial.

THEN they should be killed.

(And of course Jon should be the judge. "You are accused of murdering...well, me. GUILTY!"

I guess his dad's assurance that he would always be his first born didn't hold up. I suppose the baby could have challenged him as he got older.

The look on Varys' face was priceless.

I thought The Mountain was going to relieve that dude of his most treasured asset. It was a great kill, though. Splat.

Loved how nervous the team of guards was about going up against Cersai with The Mountain behind her.

As Tyrion walked back up the steps, I expected him to mention something about soiling his loincloth!

"Next time, punch me in the face." Funny enough.

I was actually very disappointed to tell you the truth.

It just seemed too damned convenient. When the wildlings showed up I swore they would take his body north of the Wall and bury him where he'd become a White Walker. I don't know, but I like the idea of Jon Snow dead rather than him resurrected.

On other things, Great kill by the Mountain...that splat was great. Ramsey is a sick MF!! This was the episode of the Giants. We had the Mountain...we had Hodor, and we had the Wildling's Giant all making appearences. Tyrion always cracks me up, but awesome scene with the dragons. I loved how the second one moves so Tyrion could get to his chains. Nice to see Bran again. Boy did he get older!! I hope there's more "magic" so he could walk again. Why not? Now that we can bring people back from the dead.

One thing I was apparently right about (after being so wrong last week!), The Red Woman was having doubts, and that's why she did what she did the previous week.

No, just that a girl would have been inconsequential and he would't even think about it, whereas a boy is a direct threat.

Making people's skin crawl is kinda their thing (it's their sigil after all).

Next time hear "Hodor" the proper response should be "Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Wyllis?"

For those of you who don't know, the Tyrion scene with the dragons has strengthen a long-running fan theory. For spoilers sake, I'll leave it at your discretion to search for the theory.

I'd almost forgotten how funny Tyrion was!

And Ramsey showed what an evil bastard he is, not that that's a surprise at this point.

Not sure that is true. Would a girl be in line in front of a Bastard? Remember, Ramsey (Snow) Bolton's claim to the Bolton name is based on a decree by the King (Tommelin). If the King's on lineage was ever discover and he was removed as King, his decrees would be worthless. Thus Ramsey becomes a Snow again.

Ha! He probably would be thinking about how long before he can torture and have sex with her.

A girl wouldn't be in line at all, period.

How about Jon's tie to his wolf? He came around as soon as Ghost woke up.

I see it more as Ghost woke up as son as Jon came back.

My take as well, though the editing suggested Ghost woke up first.

The preview for next week was just as good! We are going to see the...
Spoiler:
Battle between Rhaegar Targaryen and Eddard Stark! Jon Snow is (possibly) the son of Lyana Stark. They practically gave us all the info in a 5 second clip. Bran was standing there watching it unfold. Can't wait!!!
