    I've never been even slightly gay but when I saw Jon Snow's/Sand's/Aegon Targaryen's butt I wavered. :)

    She was lying on the Sand, rolled over, and was covered with a blanket of Snow.

    Well, no. The whole point was she was lying on the Targaryen, rolled over, and was covered with a blanket of Targaryen. ;)

    That would make a chilling twist if Cercei lets her get close as LF only to spoil the trap.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think the original Aegon was already dead (supposedly in the books, for realsies on the show) when Jon was born...it's possible Lyanna recycled the name in tribute?

    Man, y'all ever watch movies or TV?

    You egg them on, get them to follow you. Then you trap them via natural resources. You lead them to a cliff and flood the return path Or you lead them into a pit or something. Or you lead them to a narrow passage and slip through.

    Get some wild fire and some dragons and torch the bejeebus out of them once they're stuck.

    That comment was in response to sending the undead army to KL, not about battle strategy. While it would be interesting to see someone outsmart them in battle (that will come I expect), but so far it seems like one of those 'we can only beat them if we work together' moments. Or maybe Egon will appear and tell them it's alright to cross the streams.

    She (Sansa) probably just left the dagger on the table. It was Arya's room after all.

    In light of a conversation we had in one of the previous threads about the logistics of filming, I found this quote interesting:
    He said Baelish's death scene was one of the earlier ones shot for this season. Jeremy Podeswa directed Episodes 1 and 7 of this season. So it seems that Podeswa filmed his Ep 1 and Ep 7 Winterfell scenes together, which is why Baelish's death scene was probably shot long before much of his other scenes from episodes 2-6 of this season.

    I enjoyed this and I agree he definitely showed real vulnerable emotion. Made me sad. And yes, he was a villain and yes he was always going to die. But I quite enjoyed his devious sneaky villainy. There are villains you root for their death like Joffrey, Ramsay, Cercei but I never did for Petyr. He was so clever up until this season. I guess you can say he did this to himself but I think it was just not great writing on his character. I feel he wouldn't have underestimated these people after seeing Bran could see things and hearing Arya was a faceless man. (shrug)

    I loved the part when he asks Sansa to talk to her alone. He thinks he can talk his way out of any predicament. It was so absolutely within character to make that request. Other than the "who? what? where?" shock at the beginning, that was my favorite part of the scene.

    That's how Google works. You have to have some idea of what you want to see. Otherwise, it is just a jumble of stuff.

    And that explains it. Sometimes you google, other times you just browse wikipedia and go where it takes you.

    "I want to learn more about dad"...opens wikipedia to Eddard Stark...scrolls to "Death" section..."hmmm, Petyr Baelish"...clicks link...scrolls to memorable quotes section..."chaos is a ladder"

    Crazy theory time:

    The first WW was somehow created by Bran(warging, green-seeing, whatever) and now all the WW and their wights can be killed by simply killing Bran. As Bran is one of the least liked characters, it's a win-win.

    Maybe he at least sub-consciously knows Jon's true parentage and is actually thrilled since he knows how well incestuous relationships work. :rolleyes:

    Nowadays they could have just checked LF's social media feeds. Surprised there isn't more fake news on the show. And why don't ravens deliver spam or junk mail.

    Sounds more like a wish than a theory. It seems that Bran will be very important in the final season, making him more of a target anyway.
