    I'm not sure I'm ready to form coherent thoughts but I'll leave the thread here for those who are.

    Who's Arya going to find to save her?

    Sansa has come to her senses and is writing to Littlefinger. Hope they can come fast enough.

    Since when did the Brotherhood start brutally murdering peaceful people?

    What a great twist with Sandor back...pre-credits too! Too bad we only get Ian McShane for one episode.

    I like the cold open. A first for GoT.

    So glad The Hound is back. Who knew? :rolleyes:

    Arya is in bad shape. I was thinking the actress that took a liking to her would see her in that crowd. Man does Bravo have heartless people!

    In the books the brotherhood is taken over by Lady Stoneheart (Catelyn Stark brought back to life). But she is changed and only murders Lannisters and pretty much anybody who's ever met a Lannister. Brienne is caught by Lady Stark and the book ends without us knowing her fate. It remains to be seen if Lady Stoneheart appears in the TV show.

    This isn't about the books. The Brotherhood hasn't been depicted this way in the show before, and Sandor seemed to recognize right away what was about to happen.

    Loved the scenes at Riverrun. Good to see Bronn again, and the Parley between Kingslayer and Blackfish was great.

    I'm thinking a wound like that needs magic in that world.

    She took several deep stab wounds to the abdomen and a slash across the chest from a trained assassin. I was thinking she shouldn't be alive, let along walking around.

    We know where Theon and his sister are going or are they already there? In one scene it was said they had a long journey ahead of the, and the next said they were in Slaver's Bay.

    We also know for sure now that Margaery is playing the High Sparrow, though I don't know what the rose stands for exactly. Was that something about the rose garden?

    Other than those two things, Arya getting stabbed (a lot) and the Hound coming back, it didn't seem like much happened this episode.

    I did enjoy those two scenes, and I enjoyed Ian McShane and Diana Rigg's scenes. Outside of that, this episode didn't seem up to the last couple. I was a little disappointed.

    I think the only "friend" Arya has (if you can call her that) in all of Braavos is the woman from the acting troupe who was nice to her. And maybe that woman would be grateful for the warning Arya gave her. But even if Arya does find her, and she wants to help Arya, it is going to take something miraculous or magical to save Arya's life.

    It sure was nice of the Waif to rip her false face off so that Arya could know who she was up against (and anyone who happened to be looking her way would know that she was of the faceless). Also, the Waif needs to go take some remedial assassination classes -- stab the heart or cut the throat.

    They had to do it that way. Otherwise, Rory McCann's name in the title sequence would have given away the surprise.

    Looks like we're heading toward
    CLEGANEBOWL!!

    Theon and Yarra were in Volantis. We know this because they showed the same exterior scene as they did when Tyrion and Varys stopped there on their way to Meereen. So they are in Essos and have completed the majority of their journey, but they've still got a little ways to go to get to Meereen.

    Okay, who thought during the pre-credit scene:
    "someone is building a cathedral!" :D

    For those who are interested, there is an excellent fan-made interactive map of Westeros and Essos at

    http://quartermaester.info/

    If you're interested in seeing how far it is from Pyke to Volantis, and then from Volantis to Meereen, or for any of the other journeys the characters are taking, this is a great resource.

    I infer the waif was disobeying her instructions for Arya not to suffer; in primitive conditions an abdominal wound is a long, painful death sentence. By the same reasoning she reveals herself so that Arya knows her killer, an emotional decision. I don't think the waif is any more ready to give up her ego than Arya.

    Tried the High Sparrow's line on the wife tonight: "Congress does not require desire on the woman's part. Only patience." Didn't work. :(

    Maybe she was just disobeying her boss's order to make it quick. And she's good enough to place the wounds make them really, really hurt! :D
