    Can anyone help me out as to what was going on with Cersei and Qyburn and the rumor he is investigating?

    I remember he had obtained some info from Varys' little birds a couple episodes back and she ordered him to expand his inquiries but I can't remember what info he got and what she wanted him to keep looking for.

    I don't think we were ever told exactly what it is, but Internet speculation is that it's about
    wildfire caches in the city.

    Considering how wrong speculation was this week (on multiple accounts), who knows if that's correct or not.

    Jesus H. Christ the whole Arya storyline writing is the worst I remember in the entire series.

    She was very mobile and athletic for someone recently stabbed in the gut.

    Waif was a frickin terminator, much more interested in seeing her more rather than Arya.

    After all the discussion on how Arya will survive, the answer is "because the writers said so"

    One thing I liked about her is that she's genuinely athletic...so many actresses playing athletic characters run (or throw, or punch, or whatever) "like a girl," but she ran like a sprinter.

    It was pretty bad. It is becoming increasingly clear that the writers for the show are not very good when they do not have GRRM to use as a guide.

    That is quite disappointing. For such a profitable show, I would have expected them to find better writers.

    I was also disappointed to see Jaime take such a strong turn back to evil. It seemed like he had been slowly becoming less evil, but here he showed himself to be just as evil as ever. Not only did he threaten to kill all the Tullys, including a child, for his own selfish reason, he also did not tell Edmure about Brienne and her request for the army to come North. It would have cost Jaime little to tell Edmure that he would allow him to lead his army North with Brienne, but Jaime could not even be bothered to do that.

    The whole Arya plot now seems so pointless.

    I thought it was pretty clever that Arya used the training she received from the waif in fighting while blind, to kill the waif. But the way they got from one plot point to other seems like extraordinary lazy writing.

    This episode was written by Weiss and Benioff, so it wouldn't really matter how profitable the show is or what other writers they had on staff.

    So we're those really the slaver's ships come to attack Meereen? I thought they were Yarra and Theon, and was then confused when they were attacking.

    Can we assume that Drogon trashed that fleet, and they just didn't have the CGI budget to show it?

    Arya sure heals fast, like she was part Wolverine. I was hoping Arya would tell Lady Crane her true identity. Did Jaqen know she was a Stark.

    Dany's grand entrance at the pyramid was kinda corny.

    One Faith Militant down, a million to go.

    Maybe it was magic healing juice rather than milk of the poppy.

    Come to think of it, do we know how much time passed before she hopped out of bed?

    I really hope the Arya story is not a portent of things to come. Are the writers really that lost without GRRM's carefully thought-out writing?

    So now Jaken's "maybe a girl can become someone else" was a throw-away line that meant nothing?

    Terrible. Just terrible.

    Very disappointing, her story is one of my favorites in the books.

    Entirely different kinds of ships. Yarra's fleet are square-rigged, dirty grey and are essentially European pirate ships. This fleet has different shaped sails, bright white colors and are suggestive of Egyptian or Chinese ships.

    I don't think they ever told us. 2 things come to mind:

    1. All the firewater (is that the name?) under the city from the days of the Mad King. But I'm not sure why the little birds would find out about that. And I would think the answer would be "true/not true" instead of "it's what we thought but there much more to it".

    2. Some dirty secret about the High Septon that she can use to her advantage.
