    We don't know that the Brotherhood in general are like this. They could be like the men in the Lannister and Stark armies who were brutalizing the locals of their own volition. I think Sandor recognized what kind of people they were and that they were part of the Brotherhood as opposed to recognizing what they would do simply because of their allegiance.

    The real question: was the drawbridge coming down depicted accurately?

    The hound is clearly ready to do some killing, and he just happened to be rescued by followers of the Faith of the Seven. If only they needed a champion soon to fight the Mountain. Aria was not ready and clearly learned nothing.

    It will be interesting to see what happens when Brienne gets to Riverrun now that Jaime is there. Is part of honoring his oath to Catelyn letting the Blackfish go to help Sansa? I could see Jaime making a deal with the Blackfish to give up Riverrun in exchange for being allowed safe passage out. But would the Blackfish be willing to give up his home to help his great-niece? And that probably wouldn't go over too well with Cersei, Kevan (the current Hand), and the Freys. So would Jaime find a way to do this in secret?

    Or does Jaime actually take his army to help defeat the Boltons, leaving the Freys to deal with the Blackfish on their own? That seems like a stretch, but perhaps there is some way that this will benefit him in being able to free King's Landing from the grip of the Sparrows. This might become more necessary if Cersei's trial doesn't go well for her, particularly if it is determined that Tommen is not a legitimate Baratheon, and on top of that the Sands decide to take some action against the Lannisters.

    The craziest thing, I suppose, would be for Jaime to order his army to slaughter all the Freys, and then march north with the Tullys against the Boltons. Walder Frey would find out about this from a note that ended with, "The Lannisters send their regards."

    My feelings exactly. She laid in the dark, waiting, yet here she was strolling through the market throwing money around almost announcing where she is to the world. Nothing about this scene made sense.

    There has to be a misdirection somewhere. With assassins able to look like anyone, the writers can make this play out any way they want. In the end, it could very well be Arya looking like the waif killing the waif looking like Arya!

    The show clearly did not show who killed Brother Ray and his flock. It could have been the Brotherhood, but it also could have been any number of others.

    Fantastic theory on the Aria scene that I just saw on Reddit:
    Ok...so we can all assume that fight scene was an act....but I figured its worth some suggestive ideas. So....
    1. Before the scene she was seen flaunting Money to the Westeros Captain in order to get the word out there that a young girl was on her way to westeros in the morning.
    2. Then she chooses an open spot to try and avoid an easy death check after the fight. (Bridge)
    3. We can assume she knows enough from training to figure the waif will attack to the body. So I believe she has 1 or more pigs blood pouches around her body. She knows where and how to do this because last episode...she saved the actress. The actress then provided her help to make the scene on the bridge large and realistic.
    4. She then leaves the water and leaves a trail of blood....to lead her enemys to her. Expecting an unarmed (because she choose not to show needle during the fight scene) and injured girl; they will instead walk down a dark alley and be met with an uninjured girl who knows how to fight in the dark and carrying a sword.

    Maybe she isn't so dumb.

    I think Sansa sending Brienne works out perfectly. Brienne is the only one who can convince Jaime that there's a bigger war to be fought; the one against the Night King.

    So Jon/Sansa and the Wildlings; add the Mormonts, the Knights of the Vale; Blackfish and the Riverrun army; and Jaime and the Lannisters. They all dispose of the Boltons (and get the rest of the North to join them) and the season ends with the biggest battle the North has ever seen. The battle that Mellisandre saw in the snow. End of the Night King.

    The rest of following seasons would then resolve the Dany story arc.

    I have no idea why this is in spoiler tags. The problem with this theory is how do you make the dagger not penetrate your body? if the darn thing is 6-8 inches long, how do you make it only penetrate the 2 inches of bags of blood and not go through your body as well? did she magically make the dagger lose 5 inches (maybe by laughing at it when it takes its clothes off...not that I would know anything about that!)?

    Agreed. If that theory is true it is a jump the shark moment.

    That's a good question, but point #4 is an interesting thought. I had assumed she was using fake blood before she fell in the river, but then dismissed that thought when she was still walking slowly through the street seemingly in pain. However, if her goal was to draw the assassins out instead of faking her death, then it makes sense that she would want to be seen.

    And given that a girl failed, the next attempt might involve both a man and a girl. Or perhaps a man might watch to see which girl succeeds.

    I suppose Arya does have one other potential friend in Braavos. If Benjen Stark can come back, why not Syrio Forel?

    I'm pretty sure the end of the Night King is the end of the show.

    And that doesn't happen until Dany gets to Westeros to have her team-up with Jon.

    I was confused by Septon Swearengen wearing the gold star medallion and pretty much not believing in any religion.

    Look at the map I linked to earlier. Braavos is not anywhere close to the sailing route between Meereen and King's Landing.

    The best quote I've seen yet regarding last night's episode:

    "If Lyanna Mormont had three dragons this show would have been over two seasons ago."

    Good reference - hahaha! He said something about it not mattering who is right when it comes to the gods, just that you are on the path of doing good vs evil. He is just trying to get the Hound to recognize it is never to late to change his ways.

    I agree. I was just offering a possible different path.
