    Well, that was unsatisfying. :( I'm glad it's back, but I wanted to answers to more questions. Well, one specific question I guess. :)

    Yeah, pretty bummed out she didn't do her magic to being Jon Snow back. Maybe next week!

    Also, for some reason her necklace makes her more attractive, in my opinion. Maybe just me?

    They saw Brienne coming and said "oh crap, I heard what she did to that last hound" and they got the hell out of there.

    Nah, the servants must have just tossed out the Myranda meat, and the dogs were racing back for it.

    I guess we have our answer.

    Not a lot going on in this episode, but seems like the season opener is often that way. A lot of reminding us what happened last year.

    I have a feeling some pain is about to be brought against those religious guys at King's Landing, and against those traitorous guys at The Wall.

    I had the same thought. Their masters get slaughtered by Brienne and suddenly they're nowhere to be found? Smart dogs.

    I was wondering how they were going to make it realistic for Jorah to find Dany's ring in the middle of nowhere. I guess when a horde of horses circle around and leave an untrampled spot in the middle, that makes it kind of obvious.

    Why would all the people in Meereen be running away from the burning harbor? It didn't appear the city was in any danger of burning. I thought that was kind of odd.

    So Arya just has to endure daily beatings until she can figure out how to fight blind? I hope her story picks up soon.

    Still no Bran. I was expecting we'd finally see what he's been up to.

    ??? What answer do we have? That she's an old woman? She's always been an old woman (at least while we've known her); that only proves her magic is real. She just takes off her Necklace of Youth to sleep.

    I think the answer is she's lost her confidence. I suspect getting it back and resurrecting Jon will be connected, although I'm not sure which way the cause and effect will go...
    In a pre-modern society, any fire is dangerous, and a fire of that magnitude is profoundly dangerous. There is absolutely nothing anybody can do to stop it.

    There was a scene in some past season where the Red Woman was in a bathtub without her necklace. I think she was talking to Stanis's wife. Continuity?

    They really burned down the whole Dorne story. How did the Sand Snakes get on the boat?

    My issue was the Dothraki not knowing who Dany was. Really?!!

    But Brienne/Podrick coming to the rescue was pretty awesome! I guess Brienne's is a great teacher! He held his own, for a little while...

    I was confused by that. It wasn't clear to me if she really is an old woman or if she had renounced Lord of Light since he pretty much screwed her over regarding Stannis. :confused:

    That was a little unclear, but they must have traveled separately. It often happens in GoT that a lot more time passes than we think, and I think this is one of those times.
    Different Dothraki; not Drogo's horde. They knew who she was by reputation, they just had never met her.

    First, I'm so happy this is back!

    I'm still holding out for Jon Snow's resurrection. I don't know why I'm in such denial of his death. I never was for anyone else so far. The red woman being old without her necklace thing was very odd indeed. I thought at first she must have had it on in that bath scene but alas no so I'm curious if they messed up or if there is another reason as someone said above.

    Can someone tell me what the Khal said to Dany at the end just after he said that nobody would touch her? Something about sending her to a crypt with the other widows? I meant to go back and watch that again but then hit delete like a dolt.

    I was hoping for more Tyrion this episode but nobody tried to kill him so I will call it a win.

    I'm one of the few that don't care about Bran nor am I looking forward to his appearance back in the show. I know he's supposed to have a big part to play in all this but I'm just *yawn* about him.

    I literally yelled YES!!!!!! when Brienne and Podric showed up. I was even happier when Podric survived. Those two make me very happy and now that she's protecting Sansa I'm really interested to see where this goes. You know it's a good story/acting when I can go from loathing someone as much as I did Theon to reveling in his rescue as much as Sansa's.

    Things just got real in Dorne!

    Same here, no interest at all in his character or story line, though I suspect he will become a larger factor in the story.

    I'm hoping we get to see that big Frankenstein monster in the Lannister camp kick some serious religious zealot butt soon.

    Thank God for the previouslys because I'd forgotten so much since last season.

    Glad to see many people are uninspired with this episode. Lots of holes such as the hounds disappearing as already mentioned, Jorah finding the ring when thousands of Dothraki did not, Davos... you have until nighttime to decide even though we'll kill you anyway which gives marathon runner Edd the chance to Pied Piper to Wildings back just in time, the writers ripping off Shining and Kung Fu and you just know they're going to slow play Jon and Arya's plotlines. Long run on sentence perfect for a standstill episode.

    Last season's finale set up what should have been a pretty revealing premiere. Instead, we got the second part of the finale all these months later.

    There has never been a shred of doubt in my mind that he'll be back. I am utterly convinced that the endgame of all this involves him and Dany.
