    By the way, did anyone streaming it via HBO Now have the stream go to utter crap about 40-45 minutes into it (while littlefinger and sansa were discussing Arya)? It just started pausing for 10 seconds, playing for another 10 seconds and then pausing again. After living with that for about 3 minutes I was glad I had a torrent download already complete and switched to that.

    I watched it on HBO Go and the stream was perfectly fine.

    Also, Dany finally got a few inches of Snow.

    True, but at the same time he was sitting right there while Littlefinger was accused of using a lie to start the whole war between Starks and Lannisters, when it fact it really WAS the Lannisters to blame for pushing Bran from the tower. Though maybe the fall was so traumatic that he had lost all memory of it, even despite his 3ER abilities.

    Or dragons. Was it the NK on the Dragon, or the horse?

    Why not fly right to KL with your new dragon and start converting some of that million in the south?

    So did Kings Landing, though I'm not sure why one reminded me of the other. But since I guess I'm doing word association..."a few inches" reminds me of Dany saying he's small, and speaking of small, I loved Theon getting kneed in the nuts repeatedly to no effect. Don't all the Iron Born know what happened to him? I could have sworn that was common knowledge, so that guy should have known better. Maybe he forgot for a split second but you'd think after the first hit he'd be like "oh yeah".

    Houston/Bren...
    Great episode. They hit every plot they needed to, and set us up for the final season. The snow in King's Landing was... unexpected.

    What?!? Why would they cut one second from this?

    Maybe he's thankful. Otherwise he would have never become the "3ER".

    Well, she couldn't exactly see that coming. I don't think she knows how it all works yet and that stealing a dragon is a possibility (unless Qyburn is familiar with the details of the legends).

    And as for the night king, I'm not sure he even knows about kings landing. Unless he had a sit down conversation with Craster or absorbs the memories of the wights, or has his own 3ER-like abilities (which is possibles as some suggested he knew he was going to get the dragon there which is why he setup that ambush and then just waited) I don't think he knows what to expect south of the wall, does he? Kings Landing has only existed since Aegon's Conquest, and the white walkers haven't been south of the wall for 8000(?) years.


    Uhhh, I knew that. Not sure what got into me there, but still....same effect.

    Not exactly a long, drawn out trial for LF!

    I do wonder about Jaime. He's riding North to join that fight by himself because he promised? Leaving Bronn as the only likeable character on Cersei's side? If he would switch too....

    Jaime could tell them that the Lannister's aren't coming and about Euron's ruse. But maybe helping the fight in the North doesn't extend to giving away the latter.

    But Robert wouldn't have been there had Jon Arryn not died, nor would he have asked Ned to be his Hand. So while Jaime pushing Bran from the tower led to Catelyn kidnapping Tyrion, and things escalating from there, Petyr set all of that in motion by convincing Lysa to poison her husband.

    Speaking of Lysa, the lords of the Vale seemed to accept Sansa's admission of lying to them about her death rather well. Petyr might have killed her, but Sansa lied about it to them. I guess she could have defended herself to them by saying she was scared.

    Although I guess technically it was just Lord Royce there, and he was probably too happy to have Petyr "I think he deserves one more chance" Baelish out of the way to worry about Sansa having lied to him.

    Is it just me or do those Iron Island guys change allegiance at the drop of a hat, or what?

    More like a drop of a leader. Seems they follow whoever wins a fight.

    I started late so it happened to me during the wight reveal. It also delayed my start.

    Has a "major" character died off screen in GOT? Doesn't seem like a thing they do.
