    What a good episode! Anyone major characters missing besides The Hound and Brienne?

    Just thought of another - the Night's King.

    I admit that I could totally be wrong as I do not have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Aeron backstory, but ever since they showed Bran receiving flashes of Aeron talking about burning them all, I've wondered if he was really ordering as much or if he was responding to something that Bran said to him. I keep thinking that the Hodor thing has to have more significance than just a cool way to explain his name. I have not developed a full on theory, but wonder how much of Aeron's craziness will turn out to be Bran trying to communicate with him.

    Arya's list is pretty small going into next season. Melisandre is still on it, and her last words to Arya were "We will meet again". Can't wait, she is due for a horrible death.

    Oh yeah, we also saw Sam walk into the citadel and see the weird art piece history device thingie that starts off every episode.

    It's really a shame the north made the guy who nearly lost the war king, instead of the woman who won it. Jon Snow was pretty much an idiot. Furthermore, all of the males that Ned Stark seem to be pretty incompetent when it comes to winning wars. They are either emotional or principled instead of pragmatic. Just like Ned Stark himself was.

    I like this theory, though I wonder if it's a plot more fit for a book series that we will not see in the television series. We haven't explored much about Aegon (his name is Aegon, right, not Aeron?) in the TV series. Having not read the books, I don't know if there is more depth there.

    I wonder if she's going to be unable to stop killing people. Maybe she ends up going after all Lannisters (including Tyrion) and has to be stopped.

    Anyhow, good ep, IMO the best of the season, and in the top episodes of the series. So many annoying characters killed off and annoying plot lines cleaned up, making room for less baggage next season. No more Freys. No more High Sparrow. We've sailed away from Meereen. We've finally cemented Cersei in place as not just the woman behind the problems on the iron throne, but the woman on the iron throne, so we can deal with her directly.

    I'm hoping next season we see Bran watching R+L getting jiggy with it...

    BTW, loved how Sansa rejected Baelish...again!

    Howland Reed has always been my guess for how we find out about Jon's mother.

    Littlefinger is creepy - being in love with both Sansa and her mother.

    Aren't the Lannisters broke? I vaguely remember Tywin saying something to that effect. There's a war coming but it's kind of hard to outfit, feed and pay your army when you're coffers are empty.

    He says he loves them, but I don't buy it. It's his creepy way to get to the Iron Throne. Speaking of which, that was a first for him to actually admit, right?

    I may be wrong, but I took it as her realizing that Jon was getting all the glory and she was just going to be an afterthought, whereas with Littlefinger she would be more than that.

    You mean how THEY find out...we knew we were going to find out through Bran.
    I buy it, albeit in his creepy, self-obsessed way. I think a lot of what he does is driven by his stalkery obsession with Caitlyn (and Sansa), his need to win them over, and his need to punish them for rejecting him.

    I believe Tywin first spoke of it when he asked Tyrion to guess how much gold had come out of the mines in the last two years. Tyrion asked if he wanted the guess in tons or ounces. Tywin told him it didn't matter, the number was the same either way.

    Being broke is also why the Lannisters had to cozy up to the Tyrells.

    Interesting that you came up with Aegon. You sure you haven't read the books?

    I still can't believe that the rumors say there there are only 13 episodes left here. There is so much they need to cover and so many plot points missing.

    I was thinking back to many of the character's roles this season and realized that many barely had more than an hour of screen time. Tyrion's role this entire season was within Mereen and I'm betting he had less than an hour total of screen time. I wonder how long it takes to film that.

    Not to mention Indira Varma. She had less than 10 minutes I think. :)

    I believe Sansa was smiling when they were hailing Jon. She only had that look after she saw Littlefinger, so I had the same interpretation as TonyD79 -- that she was worried he would now try to eliminate Jon.

    I was surprised we didn't see Euron. Probably too busy building ships.

    It would be pretty funny if he sailed into Meereen and said "Ok, I've got the ships -- where's the army?"
