    The stand-out dopiness of the Arya scene to me was she rode up to within 10 feet of a group of soldiers, and it wasn't until her horse neighed that they look up and are like, oh hi there, armed stranger!

    I also vaguely thought he looked familiar, but that happens a lot - lots of actors will appear on various shows/movies/etc., so for all I knew, he could have been on some other British show that I've watched, or maybe he had a role on Law & Order, or was some minor character in one of the Harry Potter movies.

    I dunno, there are good people caught up in lots of bad jobs, that didn't bug me nearly as much as the Sam "working in a coal mine" montage that felt completely out of place.

    For the poison, she could have re-used her serving-girl persona to slip into the cellar and poison the wine barrel that Walder held in reserve for special occasions (and no one else would dare drink from). And any assassin worth her salt would know how to mix a poison from readily available sources.

    See, lots of possible explanations; but without actually seeing any of that setup, it's hard to swallow the whole thing as a fait accompli.

    Gotcha, but I recognized him enough to know he isn't an actor, so it took me to a more disruptive place than normal.

    I think my problem with the scene was it just went on too long. Show Sam cleaning up stuff and that's enough. We got the point.

    I thought that was to illustrate her ninjaness.

    The Hound is left for dead and the next time we see him he's helping a guy named Ray build a church.

    In this episode, he seemed pretty interested in why Berric Dondarian believed he was chosen to be brought back to life.

    He now sees visions in the fire.

    I'm guessing that The Hound was dead and Ray brought him back.

    The people that died in the cottage are the ones that nursed him back. And he paid them back by stealing all their money.

    They didn't nurse him back after he was left for dead, because he was still with Arya as he left their cottage, and it was Arya and Brienne who left him for dead.

    I had that out of order then. The Brothers without Banners must have found him then and he might or might not have been dead.

    I don't think so. That was a septon of the 7, not a priest of the Lord Of Light. As far as we've seen only the LOL priests do resurrections.

    No! It is not possible that there was actually a story point there. It was just thrown in for stunt casting.

    At least that's what I learned here.

    I saw it the way you did.

    So, it was Ed Sheerhan. I recognized him but I also recognized Jim Broadbent in the same episode. Big deal.

    Do you do this with every actor???? Why is it different because he is a singer?

    Yup. Show all that and then the scene loses its impact. WHY do we need to see everything that was done to set something up.
