Cersei is on Arya's list right? Is Jaime?

Nice catch (not by me) on this line repeat from S5E1:

The "less"/"fewer" line is also a S5 reference to Stannis.

My predict.... Arya will kill Littlefinger.

I think Bran knew Littlefinger sent assassin to kill Bran and Bran foreseen Arya kill Littlefinger - with that knife.

Such much epicness. Those shots of Drogon mowing down EVERYONE were best-of-the-series moments.

Brienne vs Arya was fucking sweet too. Loved the one-shoulder kip-up. Can't wait to see Arya kill lots of people.

Also loved seeing the Dothraki in action. Cutting Bronn's horse out from under him was brutal.

Answered six posts above yours.

Did you guys watch with the sound muted? They explained the history of the knife at least twice in the episode. (Short of naming who sent the assassin, anyway.)

[QUOTE=So what's the deal with Littlefinger's dagger?[/QUOTE]

That is the dagger used by the assassin to kill Brandon Stark in season one. It is Valyerian steel, and was owned by Tyrion Lannister, but only after he won in in a bet with Littlefinger, so who the actual assassin was is a bit unknown.

...at least that is what I think I remember. But I've been drinking a good bit tonight.

That's kind of a big stretch considering the assassin came right away when he was in a coma and Little Finger was at King's Landing.

I think the assassin was sent by Cersei.

Loved that battle, very gripping, though Daenerys' tactics were horrible. Have the Dothraki charge over the hilltop, have the Lannisters line up in defense, then have the dragon approach them from THE FUCKING SIDE OR REAR to utterly route them with dragon fire, with hardly any loss of life on her side. I know they had to make it exciting, but come on.

So, was the gold in the wagons that were destroyed? or was it up ahead, already?

The assassin was sent by Joffrey.

Sam's dad mentioned the gold had been delivered to King's Landing. I think Drogon destroyed their food.

Is that clarified in the series? In the books, yes, it was an almost random act of cruelty committed by Joffrey that LF used to his advantage after the fact.

Well that was fun. I thought the same thing about the dragon coming in from the side and just taking out all of the front line rather then just a small portion.

The Dickon joke cracks me up.
