Now that's how you end an episode.
And so it begins...
Awesome, awesome, awesome episode. So waiting for what comes next! I'm also liking that we are ahead of the books...it's nice not knowing what's coming next.
Although I love love love almost everything about this season, now that they've mostly moved beyond the books, one thing that's bugging me a little is that they seem to have a lot less sense than Martin does of how vast Westeros is, and how long it takes to get from one place to another. E.g., the trips people are casually taking from Winterfell to Castle Black, seemingly with no time passing. That's a journey that should take weeks...
Nice to see things coming together. I wasn't expecting Jon and Sansa to reunite so quickly (I figured they'd keep missing each other for a while), and now they're raising an army. Dany just acquired an army of her own (well, a horde); I have a feeling they will make a little trip to Slaver Bay (which will take far too short a time ) and put a rapid end to that storyline before she sets her sights again on Westeros.
And now Dany has, what, three of the coolest endings in GoT history?
Meh, Carrie did the same thing is the '70s
/Joking, that was awesome. "You're not going to serve, you are going to die."
I enjoyed it, but I found it kind of predictable once Dany went into the chamber.
Also I thought about the timing of how long it should take to travel around and I never found GoT to be that accurate with travel times. I just assumed that what we see when switching back and forth between different areas isn't happening in real time (I.e. what happened at the Wall may have been happening before Sansa escaped).
So long Tonks.
Apparently, there's gonna be lots going on.
Tyrell army in King's Landing fighting the Faith Militant. Knights Of The Vale marching on Winterfell while Jon + Sansa + wildlings try to do the same.
Meanwhile, Dani has the Dothraki horde + Unsullied + Dragons + ships from somewhere (cough, Ironborn) headed for Westeros.
Then, of course, there's that whole gigantic army of wights + white walkers north of the wall.
What I'm wondering at this point is what does this leave for Arya to do? The obvious trope would be that she has to kill someone she doesn't want to kill, so I hope it's something different and better than that.
Also, what does this leave for Sam to do? Open question for now, I guess.
And, the biggie, what does this leave for Bran to do?
As for Rickon, he's either screwed or the ultimate winner. I haven't decided which.
Well, in the short term he gets to reveal Jon's parentage to us.
In the long term, he gets to rule Winterfell? With the support of King Jon and Queen Dany?
The only part that surprised me was I expected it to end with a single word, and not Dany overturning the flames.
At least we now know what happened to Charlie McGee.
That's how I see things. They want to keep us engaged with all of the stories, and so don't necessarily show them to us in chronological order. For all we know, Bran could have seen the visions that we've been shown at the same time as the events of Season 5 were happening, but HBO didn't want to hire those actors just for a few bits, and instead waited until this season when they would have a bigger role. Order of events only matters within a particular location and when a location receives messages regarding another. That's my Theory of Game of Thrones Relativity anyway.
Even if Jon Snow was killed around the same time as when Sansa escaped, we don't know how long it was until his killers were hanged. We also don't know how long it was from that time until Sansa arrived. And we don't know how long the time was from when Sansa arrived to when the messenger from Winterfell did.
Agreed. Unless the plot explicitly tells us otherwise, whenever we check in on certain people or locations, I assume several weeks have passed since the last time we saw them.
Excellent episode. Glad to see that the upcoming battles are starting to take shape. Hopefully the Faith Militant will fall soon as I don't need to see any more of that storyline. I also hope Dany and Tyrion and the others finish off the Slaver's Bay storyline quickly. Then we can focus on the real issues in the north of Westeros.
So Theon is pledging his support for Yara. Do we know yet whether the Kingsmoot is considering Euron as well? Or do the Ironborn not even realize he's in the mix yet?
Glad to finally see Littlefinger. He really took command of that situation and used it to his advantage. Man, that Robin is such a little *****.
Even I bowed down before Danerys after that ending and I'm not even a GoT character.
Looks like a lot of good stuff is going to happen soon. Hopefully the Faith Militant and Ramsay get got very soon.
I thought Dani wasn't getting her kit off anymore. Nice way to show that's not correct.
It wouldn't surprise me if they CGI'd her head on top of some other woman's nekkid body.
Before the last Khal got crispy, I wonder if he thought "Maybe I should have chosen my words more judiciously"
Brienne was awesome.
Emilia Clarke says she was indeed nude.
She didn't need to live through that inferno for me to worship her forever.
Tormund's lust for Brienne and her confused look were priceless.
Not to mention Dolorous Edd's almost-amusement.
I thank her very much.
I'm thinking Tormund's tryst with the bear will seem like a walk in the park pretty soon
