    Nope. I just knew it wasn't "Aeron", and the closest thing my brain locked onto was "Aegon". Aerys was the name I was looking for.

    Is there only one more season? I thought there was to be two.

    I feel that Jorah and Daario's storylines are done. Be surprised if we ever see them again.

    No surprises last night except for Arya back in Westeros to dispatch Walder Frey. But I don't understand how she can swap faces without access to the House of Black & White in Braavos.

    I guess the same way her mentor did it in the earlier seasons.

    I think that being an assasin of the House of Black & White includes the knowledge of how to create the faces.

    Two seasons, but at least one of them will not be full-length. So they say.

    I think LF made a big miscalculation. He threw-in the Iron Throne as the goal thinking that this would entice Sansa to marry him. As with most power-hungry people, he failed to realize that not everyone shares that hunger.

    Two details that I recall differently: It was Cersei, not Tyrion; and it was 3 years, not 2. I could be wrong about both!

    Tywin and the throne are in debt up to their eyeballs to the Iron Bank. They relied on the Tyrells for money and - more importantly with winter HERE - food. The Lannisters are now completely surrounded and pretty much cut-off.

    I will continue to disagree with all of you. I think Sansa was happy that things didn't turn out the way LF thought they would and was gloating.

    I find it a little unbelievable that Cersei would be crowned as queen after what she did. That would essentially be like Osama Bin Laden being made POTUS after masterminding 9/11.

    This. The music throughout this episode was (hauntingly) beautiful. :up:

    While Cersei has the Iron Throne, her position is weak. The Lannisters control the Rock, the Riverlands (tenuous with weakened Freys) and I guess the Stormlands (I forget who is currently there). She has the army of angry queens (Dany, Yara, Olenna & Ellaria) on one side which includes Dorne, the Reach, the Essos forces and three dragons. On the other, the North and the Vale are allied against her. Who can she align herself with?

    Perhaps Euron will reverse and try to wed Cersei. While Dany's fleet is impressive, the Dothraki and Unsullied are not naval forces capable of fighting at sea, and the Iron Fleet could do a lot of damage before they make landfall. Of course, fire-breathing air support evens the odds somewhat.

    I wonder if Petyr is wishing he'd waited five minutes longer before taking out the Bolton forces.

    I replayed the audio several times at the Tower of Joy scene. Lyanna whispered "his name is.....(inaudible)....if Robert finds out, he'll kill him." Other than "Rhaegar II" what name could be so bad?

    Howland Reed still has a part to play. His daughter is with Bran. Whether you think Jon's father was confirmed last night or not, we know it's not Ned. So Ned came out of the tower with a baby - how far did Howland go to help him keep his secret?

    I thought the silliest scene was at the Citadel. How could they possibly think Jeor Mormont was still Lord Commander? Jon Snow's been recruiting all over the North, including Bear Island! Characters all over Westeros are aware that Jon Snow was Lord Commander. Are we to believe that no ravens have made it to Oldtown with the news? Ridiculous. Do they think Stannis is still alive? I thought this place was the center of all knowledge.

    Maybe he's just Dragon-fire proof. The fire that Dany was in was the birth of the dragons, so that was dragon related too.

    Maybe you have to believe you're a Targaryan and fire proof before you are.

    My impression is that anyone who would have had anything negative to say about the crowning was dead, so long live the queen! :D

    Having yourself put on the Iron Throne is a far cry from keeping it. Half the world is about to be on her doorstep looking to oust her and who does she have? A very well trained army with her brother at the head but not nearly the numbers she will be facing from all sides.

    Nope. I have no good recollection. You are probably right on both! I just remember the part about the answer being the same.

    Not quite sure about Jorah, we still have the greyscale issue to deal with. His house and in particular his cousin Lyanna Moromont have had a pretty big role this season so there may be a reunion of sorts, but he still does have a price on his head.

    Dany was unaffected by the hot bath in an early episode (s1e01?) And burned down the building with the khals in this season. Those weren't dragon fire.

    Crazy episode. It just flew by. I cannot wait until next season. As a book reader, I was used to knowing what was going to happen. The unknown was a nice change of pace.

    If winter is as badass as they think, and what with all of the battles and burnings and sieges, I can imagine starvation is a bigger risk than white walkers.

    My guess is that the Snow administration didn't file the proper paperwork with the Maesters... :D

    I think I read the first two books, and then decided I wanted to experience the show before continuing. Now I will go back and read the books (I may start over), and I'll probably figure out a "re-watch" schedule of the show, timed to lead up to the start of the next season.
