Book spoilers:

Spoil:
I'm gunna be pissed if Euron's magic is stripped away in the show...as it's the biggest thing that makes him a real threat to Dany...but I did enjoy his scene; "with a thousand ships, and two good hands." Hopefully his assault on Oldtown is cool; as the show really foreshadowed the s*** out of that so now they better deliver.

Tormund's crush on Brienne is the cutest thing.

Two steps forward, one step back with Sansa *sigh* She's becoming so clever and subtle in the books; wish the show could capture that, although I guess with what they've done with her storyline she can't be that subtle. :/

Loved the new Lannister song about Jaime n Cersei; and really enjoyed that whole scene. It captured that brutality of war that the show hasn't really touched on since the first few seasons.

The hound & the Bw/oB were great.

Re: Sam...I want Marwyn & Sarella.

Really bummed that they're going full "good guy" with Dany; was really hoping they would keep the dark & ominous air around Dragonstone that they gave it when Stannis was there...because even if she's a "good guy" she's a sadistic sociopath.

Arya is a god damn bad ass and her scene with Ed Sheeran was a great too imo. You better believe that The North Remembers.

I miss book Euron more than anything they've cut honestly. TV version is going to bother me a lot.

Not a lot going on in this episode tbh. The hound and the Brotherhood without Banners is good stuff. Thank god Sam had the balls to look at the books, old Sam wouldn't have done that and I would have hated him. Screw the old guys sitting in their Oldtown. Just because you're the furthest thing away from all the wars doesn't mean you have to ignore it completely.

Jim Broadbent was right imo,
His comments reminded of how wars can obliterate memory and why its important to remember

Book Euron, Dorne, Sansa's growth, Marwyn & Sarella, and (f)Aegon are the things I most miss from the books. I know they're trying to make Sansa seem more clever and manipulative; but having her openly questioning Jon was such a tactless error that the smarter Sansa we're starting to see in the books would never have made.

Agreed about Sandor, Arya & Sam's scenes. Loved that song about Jamie & Cersei

Nothing too great about that episode. Did love Arya scenes, not sure why she's not going to Winterfell though? Does she not know of Sansa&Jon?

Also Sansa looks chubby? Is she pregnant with Ramsey's kid, I thought they eluded that in the battle of the ********?

I feel like they would have touched on this during this episode at least. No way she has that kid even if she is pregnant.

I know they were never gunna do his eyes, but man do I wanna see Euron's VS-armor in the show. Hopefully his raiding of Oldtown gives him the magic to steal a dragon since it looks like he didn't pillage Valyria in the show

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought this.



Episode was pretty good IMO. I dont understand the people who expected something massive to happen last night and were pissed that nothing happened though. Season premiers for any T.V show rarely have major twists in them unless the finale of the prior season ended on some sort of cliffhanger which GOT did not. The episode was meant to set up the main story lines and plot points for then next season and it did that quite well.



Btw, I think The Hound is by far my favorite character on the story. His journey as a character and the way he's changed on the show has been very enjoyable to watch. His comic relief is fantastic as well. When he mentioned hating Rum because it was "Too sweet" I couldn't stop laughing.

Him ripping on Thoros about his man bun was great.

"A thousand ships & two good hands" is still the best line of the episode; but yeah Sandor had a ton of great lines.

Yeah and the most loaded. Like everyone knows the rumors but who would dare joke about it to their faces.
This dude would apparently.

I think it's pretty clear there's only one thing on Arya's mind at this point. Even if she knew about Jon and Sana I don't think that would distract her in the slightest.

I really hope its Sophie Turner whose pregs...which if you look back at the episode it is very much shot in preg cam. She's in all black and you dont see her whole body, etc.
I hope thats the case cause the interwebs would explode if we had to dwelve into abortion territory after all the rape and incest.

Was there something about Bran and the Wall in earlier episodes?
Cause i just realized he still has the Night King's mark on him and they mentioned the Wall like 5 times in ep.1
So clearly its useless now right?

I mean he got through the wall through that secret entrance sam showed him; but I don't think that will be enough to break the magic in the wall. That's a lot stronger than the magic of the 3EC.

Though there's something else in the story that is likely to bring the wall down/deactivate the magic inside of it at some point.

I have no idea how they're going to answer everything in the next 2 seasons, especially with season 7 only being 7 episodes.

At this point I just can't help but laugh. Releasing a fake history before even finishing Winds? And maybe no winds before 2019?!
