    hmm...is the original air date to the episode 7 thread wrong?

    Lots to talk about. Cersei is a complete and total b*tch.

    Joras is not going to like the new guy. He's not going to like him at all!

    I was unsure whether the dragonglass was going to be the ultimate weapon against dragons or white walkers. I guess now we know.

    Thank God for small favors: No Theon! :)

    I knew Fabio The Mercenary would end up aligned with Danaerys as soon as his hair started blowing in the breeze.

    Remind me to get the heck out of dodge with a quickness when more than three crows gather together.

    Dudes getting sex can't catch a break. Torture quickly follows.

    Perfect name for him and it sums up exactly what I felt the moment I saw him! The only thing missing were CGI arrows pointing at him!

    I wonder who got the penis leech, Joffrey, Balon, or Robb? :eek:

    Melisandre certainly is cruel. She could have just put the leeches on his arm. Heck, she probably could have persuaded him to put them on his own arm.

    Was it someone here that wanted to see more of Emilia Clarke?
    Did Samwell remember to take the knife after the White Walker's death?
    I loved Diana Rigg's explanation of all the convoluted familial relationships between the Lannisters and the Tyrells.
    OK, if all that Mellisandre needed was a leech's mouth full of the "blood of a king" why couldn't Stannis supply that? I assume the answer is she's going to need a lot more for a later spell, but if he put the hex on Robb, Joffrey, and Balon Greyjoy, why not Daneris?

    Has anyone noticed that the better "legal" claim one has to the Iron Throne, the lousier the claimholder is?

    Nope. He ran away and left it on the ground.

    Cersei is certainly is a handful, too bad she's a woman else she'd be the one to inherit House Lannister.

    So now Dany has her army and the gold to fund them...and all she had to do was take a bath. ;)

    My wife's comment about the bath was "They only need like another inch of water and her nipples would be covered"

    My reply: "I bet that water level was selected very carefully" :)

    I was yelling at my TV "Don't forget the dagger you just killed that thing with you idiot!"

    I think she wants a lot more of his blood, but the onion knight managed to create enough doubt that they needed a "test" first.

    Tell your wife they only needed a different camera angle for full frontal. :D

    Tyrion had some great drunken lines. And the look on Joffrey's face when he was threatened.

    I think this episode highlights a better way of making the show. Let's just say there are 9 different stories going on (e.g. Robb, Arya, Tyrion, Jaime, ...etc.). I think it would be better to pick 3 stories and spend an entire episode on them.

    Cycle through each story every 3/4 episodes while spending 5 minutes on the minor ones (e.g. Sam, Theon). I think it's much better than episodes where we spend 3-5 minutes on each story and jumping around too much.

    Rich Man / Poor Man did this (one week it was Peter Strauss, the other was Nick Nolte). And it worked very well.

    Yup! For a minute, I was sure that we were about to see the next GoT death. :eek: For best scene, it's a toss-up between that and "Not there, not THERE!"

    When I saw the preview last week, I was really hoping for a Tywin/Joffery confrontation.

    This episode showed again that Joffrey is ultimately a total coward, no matter how many tied up prostitutes he abuses.

    With Melisandra saying that the lamb needed to be sacrificed, I was sure, as we were supposed to think, that Gendry was going to have his throat cut.

    My buddy and I were mentioning that if Sansa really was only 14 then we for sure would never see her boobies.

    "If you call me sister again, I'll have you strangled in your sleep." Oh, yeah? Exactly which woman would be the queen?

    I know, WTF?

    He also ran in the direction the white-walker came from. Not the smartest.

    Yeah. I'm looking forward to the day when Jeffy is face to face all alone with Arya, "HELLO! My name is Arya Stark. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

    Bad for everyone she crosses. :) I liked her character more in previous seasons, now she is reduced to sniping.

    Well was he ever the smartest? :D

    at the time, the intent was to kill Gendry. Only The Onion Knight saved him by asking for a demonstration of the power (I assume we will see what does happen to Robb, Joffrey, and Balon).

    The actress is 17. We are absolutely not going to see boobies.
