    What was Jaime's punishment for regicide? A stern talking to?

    A few acquaintances apparently need therapy, but close friends and family members that I've spoken to all liked the ending. I'm relieved.

    That was before Daenerys decided to decimate an entire city full of innocent people in cold blood. I think seeing that would change any sane person's mind about allegiance to a madwoman. It clearly changed his mind about her being Queen of the Realm. Jon knew that she had to be stopped or there would be endless bloodshed in her name. He still loved her, but she had to die.

    Honestly, I don't recall what he said. I have a very short term memory and things like this tend to get lost in the shuffle. I could barely keep up with who did what to who during the previous 7 seasons so one person's speech would have fallen into the cracks.

    Still better than a psychopath who has no human emotion and has mostly only used his powers to cause or allow others to come to great harm.

    I think the quote in question is:
    "Power resides where men believe it resides. It's a trick. A shadow on the wall. And a very small man can cast a very large shadow."

    I can see Sansa releasing Brienne from her vow, so she can stay and protect Bran. Sansa knows she can be trusted to guard her weird little brother. We just didn't get to see it on screen.

    Now that Sansa is Queen of the North, I think it's fine that Brienne no longer needs to shadow her. Sansa has multiple lines of defense against danger.

    I don't think Brienne was going to be standing outside her room like The Mountain did for Cercei, so I don't think she was needed.

    She's a knight now, and deserved a promotion.

    I would have thought Bronn would have died in a dispute over a brothel bill.
    (And I would hope that Tyrion would make sure that the Master of Coin wasn't skimming a little off the top.)

    The final Gay of Thrones. I loved "Tilda" updating Jamie's Wikipedia page. :D

    Nice finish, something for everyone to not be satisfied about......

    It's a lateral move. She's a member of the King's Guard (or even the Captain) and she would've been the Captain of the Queen's Guard. Pretty much the same duties and job description, just a different "company".

    You mean "besides being friends with cheesesteak", right? cause that's a heck of a lot of needed therapy right there! :D :p

    I assume she is the Captain because she was, apparently, part of the Small Council.

    And isn't the Captain the one that updates the book?

    Agreed...I just wasn't sure...still, Captain of the King or Captain of the Queen she had originally pledged her loyalty to...

    I made this point hundreds of posts ago, I don't mind that she left; I do mind that they didn't show us the conversation where this happened. Given the time we invested in her quest and eventual pledging to Sansa (a scene that is one of the more powerful scenes in the entire show...and that's saying something!), I feel we were owed a scene where the release from her vows happened.

    That falls into the "Oops, we didn't ask for enough episodes" category. If they'd done everything they really should have done, we would have had six 2-3 hour episodes this season! ;)
