The Faith Militant grow increasingly aggressive. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) head south. Ellaria (Indira Varma) and the Sand Snakes vow vengeance.

Written by Dave Hill; directed by Mark Mylod.

So that says there's a scene with the Sand Snakes this week. Good!

Just read list of alleged spoilers for the rest of the season on IMDB comment section for the series. Someone claimed it was "discredited" but most of the stuff seemed like it could be possible.

Well, if the devout book people (I've read them, but now respect them only as inspiration) weren't up in arms before they will be now.

Tommen might turn into Joff with Margery cutting him off.

It felt odd to me that the High Sparrow, who seemed last episode to be about the most introspective and humble person, would allow the "Faith Militant" (or whatever they are called) to act the way they do.

This is one area where Weiss and Benioff haven't done a very good job IMO.

I had a bad feeling when they inserted a random happy, lighter moment for a regularly serious character.

I hope both Grey Worm and Barristan aren't dead. The preview showed
Spoiler:
What looked like Barristan's dead body in front of Dany, but they didn't show Grey Worm

They did a very good job with the scene between Stannis and his daughter.

Loved that Stannis/Lizard Girl scene. And Melisandre's nude scenes never gets old.

Looks like Dany's fucked big time right now. Jorah might be catching her at just the right moment.

Those Sparrows ramped up their aggressiveness damned quickly, don't you think?

Man is Tommen a little bitch. And Cersei really is stupid giving power to crazy religion guys that have one in their ranks that knows personally that she's into incest.

Holy crap, the show is really switching things up now. Sure looks like Barristan is dead, guess we'll see for sure next week. I don't really mind the changes being made at all, things are moving along at a really good pace which is a lot more than can be said for the past 2 books. Next week looks epic.

Edit: That knowing look Littlefinger had when Sansa talked about Rhaegar "raping" Lyanna.

I actually like what the show is doing with several of the characters. I have no issues.

Great episode tonight. This season has really been great, I think now that we have some story lines converging, instead of 20 different storylines, things feel much more fleshed out and grounded.

Cersei is removing Margerys support network, Glad Margery is going to fetch the Queen of Thorns.

I like what is going on with Jon, Sansa, and even with Stannis.

Also a little disappointed that the Unsullied were taken down fairly easily by the Sons of the Harpy.

That felt off to me as well. I had to think a bit about who the Sons are. I think these are people from the noble families, and thus I can't see any reason they'd be particularly good at fighting. But maybe the editing was off and it was simply a matter of a small group of Unsullied (8 or so) going up against 50-60 or so Sons of the Harpy. With those kinds of numbers, confined spaces, and sharp weapons, I can buy it.

Yeah, that was weak. The Unsullied should have torn them to shreds.

There's no way Barristan is dead. They would of let that one guy slit Barristan's throat instead of having Grey Worm stop him.
