Great episode. To see all of the allegiances being formed after 6 seasons is the ultimate payoff.

Well..that was something. I like how this show can now expand its production values to look as grand as the books . One hell of a closing sequence.

What was up with the direwolf near the end? Die Arya change her mind and head back to kill Cersei?

I'm not sure Euron has a fleet, he has a Mollie Hatchet album cover come to life.

Solid episode. Mylod's work on the show has been spotty but this is probably the finest he's directed after S5's High Sparrow. Jon and Sansa should've immediately gotten word that Brandon is alive and well. Only part that kinda bugged me.

Was that a sand snake hanging from the front of the busted ship? Or the sister?

Really no reason to keep the sister alive since I presume the Dorne chick is the gift to Cersei.

Sam's cure for the stone disease is not what has been flying around as rumor lately, haha.

Sick of this forced romance between Missandei and Greyworm. Other than that, good stuff.

They don't. Lots of time passes they don't show.

Cool to see four women all leading the different factions around the table at Dragonstone.

Great battle at the end - as sad as I am to see the show end, it's great that everything is starting to pull together.

Euron took a lot of damage from the snakes. I would have thought he would be in rougher shape. I'm also a little shocked their blades weren't poisoned.

Also, that greyscale scene with Jorah Mormont was freaking stomach turning.

It was explained in Look Inside (end of GoT). The direwolf is actually Arya's direwolf that she ditched her in first season. "This is not you" comment is almost similar in season 1 when her dad wanted her to become princess or something and Arya said "this is not me."

The speculation I heard was that it would be cured by the consumption of dragon glass.

They both had a thing ever since Grey Worm creeped on her taking a bath in the river. And she was by his bedside when he was injured in battle against the Harpies. This has been coming for awhile.

The episode emphasized that particular sand snake is Ellaria's daughter. Ellaria killed Cersei's daughter. I think Cersei would enjoy returning the favor to Ellaria.

When the biggest complaint you have about an episode is that the spectacular nude scene in it felt too much like fan service, you must be talking about a pretty damn fine hour of TV.

I think he meant for Theon's sister Yara to still be alive after this would be against what their uncle would do. Although I don't want her to be gone.
