Is the following season the last season? I can't remember, just have a hard time thinking everything could be tied up by then.

That seems like the obvious choice, however I was thinking the Ironborn were headed to the Wall.

My guess is that it will be Euron, not Yara, but that Euron will be doing it for his own selfish purposes and this will ultimately lead to new intrigue/drama/hostility between Dany and Euron. While Euron did murder another fairly evil character, I don't see any indication that this means that Euron is a force for good.

Spoiler from the book:
Spoiler:
Euron wins the Kingsmoot, not Yara, so Yara will not be in a position to control the Iron fleet. I doubt seriously that they are going to change this on the show. Where this leaves Yara and Theon in the plot I have no idea. There has been no Yara/Theon reunion in the book. In fact, Yara had already lost the Kingsmoot and was captured by Stannis when the books left off.

I know she is short, but that screen just scream cgi. Her head and neck just didn't seem right?

She may have lost weight. She was thicker in some of the earlier episodes and last season. Maybe she hit up the cardio. Great tits, though.

You know what makes me hate Ramsay Bolton most of all? That he looks a lot like king douchebag, John Mayer.

With the nudity "warning" at the beginning of the episode, I thought we might get another Osha nude scene, until she entered wearing a frock that didn't open in front. :( And it was pretty obvious that Ramsay was not hers to kill.

Awesome to see the knights of the Vale coming into play. I don't really know who they are, but the name is great. :lol:

The Sansa-Jon reunion was really moving.

Big developments on many storylines this week. :up:

The rumor going around is there will be 13 final episodes split into two seasons. But could be longer.

"We are writing the final act now," Benioff and Weiss say about 'Thrones,' which they estimate will run for 10-15 more hours beyond season six.

The sad thing is he looks the part and plays the part of a total D-Bag, and will probably get typecast the rest of his life only to get those type of roles.

I think of blonde haired kid from the Karate Kid and Back to School as he would only get D-Bag type roles in the 80's.

Hooray for the return of topless Emilia Clarke -other-

But still no sign of Bronn ... :(

that Night's Watch dinner scene is hilarious both with Tormund checking out Brienne like a piece of meat (while slowly chomping down on an actual piece of meat), Brienne shying like a little schoolgirl, and Edd's :whofart: reaction

Really? The murder of their lord, Jon Arryn, set the entire story in motion.
We've spent years at the Eyrie and most characters have at least visited.

He was recently cast as a young Hitler in an upcoming movie, so you seem to be right so far.

I too thought it looked CGI'd and not right but Emilia is insisting that it was all her with no body double or CGI. Maybe the CGI from the flames caused the weird look? She said she was on a completely closed set and the scene was actually filmed in 2 locations. One closed set for her stuff and another location in another country for all the reactions shots from the crowd.

I think that might be my favorite scene in the whole series. :lol:

He played a good guy in "Misfits" in England, and the dopey guy upstairs in "Vicious" .....

I get the feeling the Ironborn won't be part of the War for the North as they'll be focused on their own Kingsmoot (and whatever internal conflicts might arise afterward).

*Olenna and Cersei continue to have great interactions
**Osha dying kinda makes you back track on Umber's "true" intentions, unless she willingly sacrificed herself as part of the overall strategy ...

Or thought she could get to Ramsey first, she almost got him.

I thought that this was a really good episode. I just knew that Brienne and Sansa would be heading to the Umbers, but they made it to the wall. I was nice to see two Stark relatives in the same scene for the first time in a long time. It was nice to have a reunion. Once Sansa made it to safety, she immediately went into game mode trying to get Jon to take back Winterfell. I thought that Sophie Turner did a good job in those scenes.

It was nice to see Daenerys actually do something this episode. She needs to head to Westros with that huge army now.

It seems to me that everything is starting to move really fast this season. There has been a bunch of character deaths and parts moving along. It's looking like we're going to have a great big battle soon.

That's what I was thinking. She figured she could use the same strategy she used on Theon, but didn't count on Ramsay.

Yeah, I was going to mention Misfits. Although, didn't he also play an evil character in that? It's been a few years since I watched it, but I thought there was an evil turn toward the end in the sense that he wasn't who we (and the characters in the show) were lead to believe.

It was a nice set up for audiences to give them the hope of "ohh... Ramsay is going to get it now" as she sticks a knife into him. However, I'm sure that he knew exactly where that knife was and read her intentions as she entered the room and started to try and seduce him when he set the knife and apple down. Granted, she may have simply tried to take an opening.. I would think that, as a wildling, that if she really wanted to kill him she would have had a weapon on her hidden like Ramsay always seems to have.

That said, I do look forward to his inevitable death and hope that it comes at the hands of Sansa effecting her revenge.. Though that would be kind of out of character for her. But we shall see.

What was her plan if he wasn't coincidentally eating an apple at that exact moment?

thank you. i was trying to place who he reminded me of while he serenaded Myranda's corpse with Your body is a wonderland.

sansa looked and sounded amazing in this episode. Nice to see her finally putting to use all her time spent listening to the greatest plotters in Westros (littlefinger and tyrion).

I thought Cersei is picking trial by combat and maybe we somehow get

Spoiler:
Clegane bowl
soon

i would add myself to the people affected by sansa and jon speaking. after the shit that has gone down for both of them, it felt like the starks were winning for once. i liked how they essentially bullshitted and talked like real people, before they went in the game of thrones plot stuff.

Good episode, happy to see Sansa/Jon together. I really happy the Daenerys stuff moves forward from here at a greater pace. I thought it was weird how the fire spread so easily too, made that scene look cheesy.

And yeah, all the Tyrion stuff this season has been fairly boring.
