If Arya didn't have the protection of Martin's wife, I had a really twisted idea for killing her - basically, she kills Cersei, wears her face to do a thing, and gets assassinated herself before she can reveal the truth.

But since that won't happen, I'm gonna go with something from all the way back in the beggining: Robert has a son and Ned has a daughter. They'll join their houses.

Sounds like the Night King has a gloaty streak about him. He apparently knows the Night's Watch are behind him and he's like "LOOOOOL, we got through your thick-ass wall and look what we did! You suck at your job"

Well, rescuing Yara went off a lot smoother than I expected.

[up]Not only that, lets our boys in black beat him to Winterfell anyways. Dude got in, ransacked the place, set up the sign, and got out before anyone could even spot his army. And has a Blue Eyes White Dragon.

Fuckers toying with them and everybody knows it.

Looks like we know who got the jetpack this season...

Also, I thought this was a pretty bad/underwhelming episode. A couple minutes of bad CGI dragonback flirtcest, and not a single second spent on Ghost or the word "annulment". And in however long it has been since they boned, no one has actually sat Jon and Dany down to say their obvious flirting is in the best interests of everyone to just marry.

So I know the writers are trying to go the Jerkass Has a Point angle with Sansa this season, but when one side is survival and the other one is literal extinction of all of humanity, then she really has no real leg to stand on, no matter how much she wants to get the last word in.

Also, its nice to see that even as an emotionless demigod Bran can still snark with the best of them. "Waiting for an old friend" indeed.

[up][up] TBH Daenerys is also highly prone to getting into technical issues and to make sure she is dominating, rather than merely ruling.

Posting the same thing as I did in the other GOT thread. Gonna be great when Jaime and Bran actually talk.

J: "How old are you now, boy? 16?"
B: "18."
J: "Oh. the things I do for old times sake..." *pushes Bran's wheelchair over*

holy shit Sansa is tall.

She towers over nearly every other character, and absolutely every female character.

@blk Bran is even taller if he were allowed to stand up.

There's a picture of them at a party. Sophie's in heels and Isaac is in regular shoes and he beats her by a few inches.

I'm pretty sure Bran is taller than Jaime at this point.

FYI, according to google Sophie Turner (Sansa) is 5’9 and Isaac Hempstead-White (Bran) is 5’11.

They just look tall next to the others in photo shoots because everyone is short but Gwendolyn Christie (Brienne). [lol]

OK, ok, ok... I'm excited for the show to be back. (Spoilers for the new episode, season premiere... I noticed some of you are using spoiler-tagging... but since the episode is out officially, no leaks or anything, I'll assume people won't mind reading it.)

  • Sansa makes the most sense of them all: what are they supposed to eat? How is she supposed to feed all her people and two big-ass armies extra plus two big-ass dragons for good measure? And I'm adding: How are they supposed to keep themselves warm? They really should show the armies carrying supplies and provisions or something. The North and the Seven Kingdoms looked beyond starved before winter. Winters are supposed to be terribly hard even in time of peace. They should be packed with stuff from harvest from summer/autumn, which we know they are not... Never mind.
  • The dragons are visually stunning... but I'd love me some direwolf. I miss Ghost.
  • I don't much care for Jon/Danny. (And I ship almost anything.) Sansa is right to tell him off.
  • Jon/Arya meeting was cute... I loved the hug. However, I also have to laugh — I keep expecting memes to pop up. I thought it would go down like this: Jon: "I got stabbed and died and was brought back!" — Arya: "I got stabbed, too. But I slept it off!" And the final scene: "Jaime, you looked so beautiful the day you banged Cercei in the tower. The weather was nice."
  • I have to admit, I still care for those characters — mostly those who are in the North. I don't want to predict who will die and who will survive, but I assume it will be half and half. I was pleased to see Tormund and Edd Tollett alive, they're my particular favourites.
  • Yara has a point about them having a place to retreat, but she should actually tell them about it and prepare camps in the mainland and prepare ships to take them to the islands.
  • I wonder why Cercei wants those elephants so badly. It's not like they can compare to dragons.

True they can't breath fire but their presence alone is enough to put the fear of Gods in the mosta armies

Ding ding ding! Dany burned a ton of food when she was fighting the Tarlys, because Dany is a violent conqueror, not a ruler. Dragons do not sow crops.
