It was a pretty alright scene.
Exactly why she was laughing. She has done this being honest thing, and it getting misinteruptted as a joke before.

She might of thought about killing them before she sat down, but it seems she learned they are not bad people. She even accepted guest right when she took their food.

It counters pretty nicely with the Hound's stuff where he also rediscovers his humanity.

Ed Sheeran was in 5 episodes of The ******* Executioner which I watched, so it wasn't anything I haven't seen before

It also counters pretty nicely with the Stark soldiers who hung three girls up from a tree, for apparently sleeping with Lannister soldiers. They were found by Brienne and Jaime. Brienne then kills them pretty handily.

There are good and bad people on either Stark and Lannister sides.

I saw a bit of prisoners dilemma in the scene. Arya has a high kill count right now, but that's been mostly through espionage and poison, not a straight up fight. In direct combat she could maybe take one of them, but she's not an invincible ninja that could wipe out the whole group. If they wanted to do her harm, she wouldn't have the prep time to kill them.

Her only advantage if they were hostile was that she was on horseback while they were sitting around a camp. Would kind of make her look guilty to run, but as soon as she stopped off her horse she was more or less in their power. There were a two other subtle touches to the scene that showed good intentions though. First Arya and the camera focused on their swords being stashed away. Second, the way they offered her some food and then wine seemed like an informal 'guests rights' ceremony.

After that the scene seemed to relax. My initial thoughts were actually that someone in that group was on her kill list, like the Lannister soldier who had needle.

Also come on HBO, isn't it time to bring Nymeria back into he picture? The fact that there's been literally no mention of Dire wolves for such a long time makes me think they're just conveniently forgetting her . A dire wolf let loose in the southern lands would probably make itself something of a legend.

I'm just glad that a group of male soldiers seeing a young female by herself in the woods don't instantly think of raping her. Westeros is a brutal place and this show has conditioned me to always expect the worst.

Nah, next episode will be members of Snow Patrol, Mastodon, Coldplay, Sigur Ros, and Of Monsters and Men. Oh, wait, no. All of those have already happened. All all of them but Mastodon were also in singing roles.

I really really don't understand the outrage over this one. They've been having musical cameos for many seasons now.

Dire Wolves are expensive to CGI. Given how many white walkers and dragons we're seeing this season, I wouldn't hold my breath for Nymeria.

There is a wolf in the preview for episode two. No idea if it was Nymeria or not. It was such a quick shot I couldn't tell.

To counter my own previous post, Arya is roughly in the same area where Nymeria was released back in season one.

Ayra needs a wolf to complete her bad assness.

Was Arya in the Riverlands during that scene with Lannister soldiers ? Curious because the scene with the Hound was in the Riverlands, yet winter raged on there and seemed to for a while considering both the decay from the corpses and the fact they had already begun to starve.

I don't think my post was full of outrage, more sarcasm than anything I did not know Coldplay was on it though and have not heard of any of the other groups.

Yeah, its been a whole 6 episodes since we've seen a direwolf. How does HBO expect us to live?

Didn't it come down to either Wun-Wun or Ghost in the BotB last season due to budget?

It definitely wasn't Ghost. Nymeria almost definitely.

You'll recognize some of their songs.



(The one leading the song)




(The musicians sitting at top of the set)

Okay, you probably wouldn't recognize a Mastodon or Sigur Ros song if you don't recognize either bands' name.






As for Coldplay, they were at the Red Wedding. Just another reason to hate them.

Decapitating Ser Cassell and killing Maester Luwin isn't that big a deal.

I don't know much about their music but in terms of GoT I think they made up for the Red Wedding with this:
