OT: Game of Thrones Season 7

No sense in dancing around the subject. HBO just released their first trailer for Season 7, so its time to crank this bad boy of a thread up for some fun times this year.

Lets do what we do best and over-analyze the hell out of this 108 second long video.

Season 7 begins on July 16th.

Well.....I just went from six to midnight....

I literally was just going to post this.

So...Season 7 will be the battle for the Iron Throne and Season 8 will be the war against the White Walkers?

Season 7? Man, they really are milking this whole Bilbo Baggins thing.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).

Sure but they've really sped it up last few season atleast they're not slowing down like the walking dead

So she was kneeling on the Island right? Her first step onto Westeros territory.

Yeah that looked like they ended up landing at Dragonstone, which would make sense. Coming full circle for her as its where she was born before getting taken to Essos.

This season will hard to watch for me...considering I watched the first 6 seasons in about a month and a half.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

I'm on season 2. I enjoy it but if the comment above isn't sarcasm (and they truly haven't battled for the throne or fought the white walkers in seasons 2-6), then I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy investing that much time lol.

It's worth it.

The battle for the throne is pretty much ongoing every season. The White Walkers are going to be the culmination of the series.

Watch it. Do it.

I would suggest never opening this or any other GoT thread again if you're only on season 2. Also probably best to just get off the internet altogether other than the window you're streaming from

You all got legs. Thanks for the insight, and warnings. I shall continue onward...

Side note, have any of you heard about how great the show is from people, then watched it yourself and then judged those other people for liking it? Like your parents or grandparents? I had no idea what it was about but some older relatives talked endlessly about its greatness. Then when I watched it and realized how much gore and T&A is in it, I'm like "really?" Never would have thought they'd be into that...

Everyone enjoys T&A...including your grandparents apparently.

Funny you should mention this, I've actually told some of my family NOT to watch it specifically to avoid being the guy getting judged

Not about GoT in particular, but I have definitely had this thought about a Netflix show.

The owner of the agency my wife runs is a great guy, but comes across very straightlaced. He raved about Sense8 on Netflix to the point that we started it. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the show but there are some parts that are risque to say the least. I have always thought him to be a great guy, but see him a little bit differently these days.

On a side note, just finished season 2 of sense8, I love the show

I judge people who don't like it. Does that count?

Let me just tell you that the wick on the powder keg gets lit toward the end of the third season and all hell breaks loose from there. You won't be able to take your eyes off of it except that HBO makes you wait a week.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

If this entire mini-season is not just one huge series of battles I will be disappointed.

I am so intrigued as to how the scene with Grey Worm and Missandei goes down.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Probably something like this

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives

WHAT COULD THAT MEAN THOUGH

I wonder how heavily Beric is involved this season, as he isn't too big of a presence but yet gets a big part of this trailer with his sword.

I hope it's a lot of him and the Brotherhood. They've basically been ignored other than for a handful of episodes and the occasional mention of them by other characters, but I guess that's the way they would prefer it

Azor Ahai??

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Am I the only one who reads "Beric Donderrion" as the third line of "the farmer in the dell"?

The hype levels have reached 9000

Edit: Eddard tells Arya that quote in the original AGOT novel after she and Sansa had been fighting. I think it means she's sticking with Jon and hopefully Jon dispatching with Little Finger.

Also the bit at the end with Jon killing the Wight gave me chills.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Sounds like that could be an old saying of the Stark family.

But if I had to guess if it has meaning, I wouldn't get too attached to Bran this season. Feels like his storyline could be close to wrapping up.

Really? I've read a few theories thinking he's the biggest cog in the wheel...like, behind everythinggg. Surely they didn't just him way down this long winded path just to tell Jon who his parents are.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Yeah, most theories I've heard involve Bran vs. Night King as the real end game.

One I rabbit-holed was Bran IS the Night King, which is a little too far fetched for me...but who knows.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

It kinda makes sense, the mark slowly turns him just like the greyscale does. There is a theory that he is Bran the builder, and another one that Bran the builder is actually the Night King since they were around in the same time period. It doesn't take much to connect all three of those

I'm not sure if I buy the whole Bran resurrection thing. What's always been unique about Bran is that he's both a greenseer (powers of the Children of the Forest/The Old Gods) and a warg (a power from the First Men). So I suspect some sort of common lineage, but I don't know if it's really the same person, recycled generation after generation. If this was the case, why was Bloodraven/Brynden Rivers ever even necessary? Wouldn't that role always be fulfilled by this generation's version of Bran?

Will definitely be interesting to see how it plays out, though.

Wasn't Bran the Builder building the Wall for a reason though? Not sure he is the Night King.

I think the Night King ia going to manipulate Bran into waking the Ice Dragon though, perhaps by warging into it.

TIL there's an ice dragon

Note that this is a bit spoilerish but IF you look closely in the trailer arya has the little fingers dagger take that as you will it's left me with a few theories

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Or is it just Needle?

Run to Win. Pass To Score

That was my guess, but there are definitely some fan theories out there that agree with hokienator. I try not to dig too far into that stuff though. The internet is dark and full of spoilers

It's his dagger. There is a magazine photo with the stark children and she clearly is in possession of it

It's made from Valyrian Steel, right?

So what's the rundown on who has a Valyrian Steel sword/dagger/pointy thing at this point?

I can only think of these off the top of my head
Littlefinger/Arya
Jon Snow
Beric?

Sam has Heartsbane from House Tarly
Widow's Wail has gone MIA but may have been sent back to Casterly Rock after Joffrey died and kept there until Tommen came of age (interestingly, Danaerys is sacking Casterly Rock in the promos...)
Brienne has Oathkeeper

Oh man, how could I forget Sam stealing Heartsbane? What a boss

(interestingly, Danaerys is sacking Casterly Rock in the promos...)

I thought that was Dragonstone with the table map of Westeros? Dammit - now I gotta watch it again

Run to Win. Pass To Score

She lands at Dragonstone, but both promos that have been released show the Unsullied invading Casterly Rock and fighting Lannister soldiers.

The wiki page on Widow's Wail says it is kept in the Red Keep until Tommen comes of age. So:

Longclaw = Jon
Heartsbane = Sam
Littlefinger's dagger = Arya
Oathkeeper = Brienne
Widow's Wail = In the Red Keep so Cersei and/or Jamie

There is a list of know valyrian steel swords in the books in this LINK. Who is listed as having each sword is not current with the show since the show is now ahead of the books. I think the only ones that have been shown in the show are the few listed above.

Also, Dany is shown at Dragonstone in the trailer, so they have access to lots of Dragonglass which can also kill White Walkers.

Imagine what could happen if the Night King manages to kill/turn one of those

Ice dragon vs. Fire dragon!!!

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

I have a theory that since the iron throne was melted together with dragon flame, it's all Valerian steel so at some point they rip that son of a bitch apart

Recruit Prosim

That's a really good theory. And I like the symbolism that the throne represents the strength of the 7 kingdoms. I'm fully expecting the political structure to he significantly different by the end.

I just had a glorious vision of Arya face-changing into Ned Stark, cornering Littlefinger for his betrayal, then executing him.

SAME!

I would love to see Sam get Heartsbane back to the North and see it end up in the hands of someone like The Hound. I get the distinct feeling that his arc is going to end up with his death surrounded by a lot of dead White Walkers, and really cementing the fact that he was not an "evil" guy, and in fact had a lot more honor than any of the people he served.

My wife has juuust gotten into GOT (she's knocking out season 2 this week) and when I told her he was my favorite character she was perplexed as to why.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

When I was reading the books I would give my wife brief summaries of my favorite parts. I always talked about how Jaime was one of my favorite characters, and when she started watching the show she had the same reaction.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I am interested in seeing how/if they bring Arya's wolf, Nymeria, back into the picture. She would be a bigger bad ass with a wolf on the heel.

I wish, but I doubt it. Seemed like they were dropping direwolves like flies last season to cut the CGI budget (gotta make those dragons huge). But man that would be awesome. The direwolves are my favorite characters haha.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Would be awesome, but seems unlikely.

Throughout the books she keeps having dreams (almost like warg-lite moments) of Nymeria running a huge pack of wolves in the Riverlands.

Since they haven't done that in the show, can't imagine they would all of a sudden introduce it.

Do not underestimate HBOs ability to deviate! Lol

Guess who's back...

If he really cared he'd poison the stew and do whatever needs to be done. I know who could help him with that.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

if someone had predicted Sansa's evolution to being a powerful female leader several seasons ago they would be a gorram genius.

I don't get it. Jon Snow basically says "you're the lady of the house", then she contradicts him in the meeting, and then says "you're a natural leader". Its like Sansa can't figure out wth she wants to do.

I think it's more like, she contradicted him in front of everyone, and he handled it extremely well. She saw that and respected it.

Plus her eyes were ice blue in that scene. Wowza

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

She can't make her own point in the meeting AND think he is a natural leader at the same time?

he is a leader. And she did have a good point. these are not related.

I think what the scene really showed is that Sansa is playing the Game, which one would expect from someone that basically learned from watching Cersei or being "taught" by Littlefinger, and that Jon is not approaching things that way.

Jon wasn't going to A) execute kids (which was also a telling point, he clearly knew and understood who it was that he was leading, Sansa doesn't yet. And B) he is a practical leader. He needs fighters to combat the actual biggest threat

While you were spot on in her arc moving towards becoming a powerful female leader, that scene showed that she is neither of those things yet.

While you were spot on in her arc moving towards becoming a powerful female leader, that scene showed that she is neither of those things yet.

haha, we still disagree. You are correct, that scene showed the teachings of Cersei and Littlefinger abutting what she is now being taught by Jon.

Cersei taught her to be a leader means you must be ruthless or be killed.
Littlefinger taught her you must play the chess board or be killed.
Jon is teaching her you must be loyal and noble or be killed.

But Sansa is already a powerful figure or she wouldn't have spoken up at all. That scene showed she has a seat at the table already. A table she will one day be at the head of.

Of course, but it was getting the point of argumentative (with the King). Agree with the post above. If the point was to show her as a strong female leader, it only shows her desire to become one, not that she's arrived there yet.

Well she is obviously not the Queen of the North yet, so not sure what you are expecting there. But certainly other heads of the clans agreed with Sansa by voicing their "ayes" after she spoke. Support of her viewpoint already is proof that she is in some way viewed as a leader.

Yeah, and then they turned around and immediately cheered Jon's decision and the Karstark/Umber pledges of loyalty. My guess is that the houses of the North are going to be yes-men for whichever Stark/Snow speaks last.

that doesn't disprove that Sansa is viewed as a leader. Rather proves that they view both Stark children as leaders.

Honestly, I'm intrigued to read the yelp reviews for the Citadel cafeteria.

The stark girls are bad ass. That scene at the twins was awesome, seeing the dragons come "home", didn't see the Ed Sheeran thing coming not sure if she is going to kill them or not, noticed some interesting things in the flash scenes at the end played in slow motion.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Right now, the Ed Sheeran scene looks completely pointless. I hope the writers don't make it so, but thats what it appears to me for right now.

In a couple episodes, she'll be riding and come across some soldiers practicing in hand to hand combat, and then a loud-mouthed Lanister will have the camera zoom in on him only to reveal Conor McGregor. He'll share a mink coat and trash talking pointers with Arya...it'll be heart warming.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

I think it's two fold. It shows her that her "enemies" are also people. So the question is does she still kill them because they are Lannister soldiers or let them live because they are just nice people in person?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

The question is whether or not Arya shows humanity, or if she remains on the killing spree. They're (so far) giving her the Lady Stoneheart arc from the books. If that's the case, we'll see the corpses of the kindly Lannister soldiers. If she spares them, she deviates somewhat from the assassin that she's currently showing herself to be. The question is, how much of her high-minded, moral Stark self remains?

Leg for Stoneheart. I've been wondering if or how she could be incorporated into the show at this point. It didn't occur to me that Arya could be playing that role in addition to her own since the books haven't even resolved her time in Braavos yet.

If she winds up killing Ed Sheeran in some gruesome way, I'll allow it no matter how pointless it is.

Edit: Ed Sheeran's character. Obviously, I meant Ed Sheeran's character. Probably.

I prefer Steve Earle's.

I honestly didn't even know what Ed Sheeran looked like until last night watching the Ringer's after-show when they kept referring to/joking about him. Had to look him up to figure out which scene he was in

Arya needs a face to get into the Red Keep. A Lannister soldier would do nicely. hence this scene.

Also possible the talk about family leads Arya to go North instead of South and then we have the Stark family reunion we've all been waiting for.

Ellaria and Yara Kissing scene, since Yara Greyjoy supports Danerys does that mean Doene is supporting her too?

They've been itching for war for years. They hate the Lannisters above all others for what they've done to the Martell family. All Varys had to do is walk in and go, "I've got a Targaryen with dragons coming to wipe out the Lannisters" and Ellaria and the Sand Snakes probably signed up before he finished his sentence.

In last year's finale, there were ships with the Sun Spear on it amongst the Targaryen and Greyjoy ships.

Did anyone else predict the Euron Greyjoy courting Cercei storyline? Pretty obvious to me: evil power couple

I didn't, but it's certainly exciting to think about. What do you think his present is going to be? Will he capture Tyrion? A dragon? What else could actually impress Cersei at this point?

Trying to think of someone who would potentially not be protected in the near future.

My guess would be either Bran or Daario. Both are relatively unprotected, and both would send a major message to either the Starks or Dany.

I don't know how spoiler-y we wanna get, but after reading the books, I have an educated guess as to the "priceless gift" that Euron wants to bring to Cersei.

Haha, I appreciate you withholding this guess

Given GRRM, I'd guess the head of a dragon or Tyrion.

The trailers showed a major sea battle between Euron's fleet and Dany's ships, helmed by Yara and Theon, the only ones among her allies that know how to sail and fight at sea. My guess is Euron captures one of them for revenge for what they did to him and to give Cersei leverage. Based on an additional trailer scene with Theon hunched over on the shore of (presumably) Dragonstone, my guess is Euron captures Yara and Theon continues to feel like a failure because of it.

It's gotta be a Sand Snake. The whole "gift" narrative is what they called the back and forth between Cersei and Ellaria before. I think he captures one of them, perhaps Ellaria herself, for Cersei to slaughter.

With the whole theory online of Euron having that silly dragon horn thing from his travels, he may be bringing her a tamed dragon...which I don't expect to see.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

It's not just a theory. In the book he has the horn but it burns the insides of whoever uses it, killing them. However that arc didn't get resolved yet in the books and he never spoke with Cersei, if he ever does.

But to be fair I don't think the books and the show will run parallel since they've already diverged in a number of ways.

So Daenerys is probably the only one that can use it then since she does not burn in the show? Maybe Jon If he has the same abilities.

Edit: I stand corrected. I forgot about the part where Jon got burned.

"Facyson is a baller."
-CFB

Jon gets burned fighting off the wight in Mormont's chambers early in the show. So it's definitely only a Danaerys thing.

Burned by ice (cold) is not burned by fire (heat) though.

Hence "A Song of Ice and Fire."

Edit: Now I'm remembering that he was probably burned by a torch or something so... never mind.

I don't follow. The dragon horn is a Valyrian artifact and burns via fire. Jon was burned by a torch. He's not immune to fire.

Being immune to fire is unique to Dany. Plenty of famous Targs have been burned to death.

I totally forgot about the horn. I was thinking he would snatch that other targaryean, the boy that might be a fake. But I suppose that storyline might have been absorbed by the show already.

Oh man, i forgot the other targaryean...

Who did he make a deal with again?

Yeah unfortunately I think the other possible heir won't be a part of it because it would make things too complicated. And besides they already gave greyscale to Jorah instead of to Griff.

Called it

Even though I know better, I have a gut feeling this whole thing is going to wrap up somehow in a "and they all lived happily ever after" after all the evil is wiped away. Why? Because that is the one thing that absolutely nobody is expecting out of JGRRM, and would ironically cause the most controversy.

My "would piss off the most fans" theory says that just as the battle of Kings Landing comes to a head, the White Walker invasion begins in earnest, and causes everyone to ally and align to defeat them, and they all rally around a group of leaders who leads the battle to crush it all.

After all this buildup, and after all the "who dies next", that would be the most JGRRM ending ever, by not actually being a JGRRM ending.

I thought that was a fantastic episode. A great way to start the season, and certainly one of the juiciest premieres of the show. No, there wasn't anything massive or a ton of violence but they made it clear where everything was headed and still gave you some treats. Each scene left a what's next question: Arya and Ed Sheerhan (she's totally killing them all), the Hound (he's obviously a pivotal player going forward), Euron (who/what is his gift), Bran is now on the good side of the wall (that is a bad thing, that wall is coming down and there was a ton of foreshadowing to this), Jorah looks like a burnt hot dog, and obviously Dany.

So Jorah is now where Shireen was cured and the book sam was reading had thing in it talking about how eating dragonglass can cure grey scale. I expect this will lead Sam and Jorah to Dany and Jon at some point.

I'm afraid Euron's gift will be a stark child or Tyrion or something. That's going to suck.

Still think Arya kills Littlefinger.

I still see her killing them all - lure one into the woods, kill him, take his face, kill the rest. Or maybe she will be friendly with them all.

I think Euron's gift is a Targaryean.

I'm hoping Arya doesn't kill any of them. I could see the scene unfolding where she leads one off to kill runs into Nymeria and has a change in heart and heads North with Nymeria and a MASSIVE pack of Wolves! The reunion of the remaining Starks!

Euron's gift will be his attempt to bring back Dany. I don't think he wins the sea battle.

I could see Sansa marrying Littlefinger as a way to gain control of the Vale's Army and pushes him out the moon door. Don't think it will happen, but the her getting married to him would make sense in order to gain full control of the Vale.

Littlefinger doesn't have any legal control over the Vale. Robin Arryn is the Lord of the Eyrie and Warden of the East. Obviously, Robin seems to do whatever he says, so in the short run, this would be a way to get control. But if the long term goal was to usurp Littlefinger in the Vale, marrying Robin would probably be the most politically sound measure given the current structure. Although, given that they're first-cousins, that would probably be frowned upon.

Granted, the whole political structure of Westeros is about to be turned on its head, so who knows.

Things that I strongly believe to be true moving forward in GOT:

1) Dany is a conqueror and a liberator much more than she is a ruler, I don't think her end game is being some traditional ruler. I think she flips Westeros upside down and changes things forever (ultimately)

2) I think Dany shows up and wrecks shop until she is forced to unite with Jon (and everyone else) to face the Walkers after Bran inevitably breaks the seal (if he didn't already in this past episode by passing through the gate, I didn't brush up before the season started)

Insignificant notes from this first episode:

What in the hell was Euron wearing? He looked like a hipster trying to dress like an 80's rock star (I realize this is redundant in some cases) His tight leather pants and leather jacket embroidered in stars looked quite out of place.

Agreed on Euron's attire and I think he intends to bring Tyrion back. I foresee a large naval battle coming. Danny is going to take Westeros and one of the either Cersei or Jaime kills the other as a big twist, Cersei because she has no problem betraying people, and Jaime, in a repeat, because she has lost her damn mind. The Starks will be forced to align with Danny as the white walkers bust through the wall and push them south.

After a ton of backlash on social media from his performance, Ed Sheeran has deleted his twitter account.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

He had already gone social media silent a few months ago, so this isn't a huge deal.

Man, people will bitch about anything.

I thought the song he was singing was pretty good, and his presence in that scene really didn't take away from its intent.

Frankly, I think it would be awesome to see Arya take his face and kill a few more Lannister. Seen the guy live and he is fantastic, watching him as an assassin would offer some cool dissonance.

But then Sheerhan would have to act for real. I didn't think it was a bad performance and he only had all of like 3 lines aside from the song. I agree if you didn't know who Ed Sheerhan was its not like he would have stood out negatively.

Right? I thought the exact same thing.

Not sure I follow on Shereen as a performer, but to each their own.

I dont know the guy and don't care to know about him but I thought the scene was good. Nice blend. Agree on the bitching. I am jonesing for thrones! Lol

I thought the scene was fine but in a way it kinda ruined the moment. Just took you out of the realism of the show for a second.

Thrones has had a ton of low-key cameos for a while. The metal band Mastodon played a bunch of the White army as Jon's sailing away from Hardhome. Coldplay's drummer was in the Red Wedding. Granted, Sheeren is likely the most popular of them all, but they've given some really minor roles like that to cameos before.

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard supposedly filmed a scene for this season as well

Yeah but they have all been done a little more subtle. At the end of the day it doesn't really matter. I hate his music so that might be why it bugged me. With that being said, it was only a quick scene and doesn't mean much going forward.

Just saw this theory on twitter, can't embed.

The opening credit scene for season 7 showed the sea to the right of the wall frozen over and that would explain the Hounds vision that the white walkers are walking around or past the wall.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinsku, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I didn't think it would be that hard to spot the parallel. Big wall designed to keeps some people out but the wall isn't built into the ocean so they can just go around. Certain news network accuses HBO of mocking a certain authority figure's border security plan.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Was just coming to mention this. Rewatched the opening credits and it's pretty clear.

I've seen some people discussing this possibility and saying if the Walkers could just freeze the sea why haven't they walked around a long time ago. This isn't the first winter since the Long Night certainly. Perhaps the Walkers aren't the purely evil beings they are depicted as. Maybe they never had a desire to cross south of the Wall until now, for whatever reason.

I also love that it makes it clear that The Hound still has a special role to play, as the Lord of Light made that vision clear to him.

I want to see this pack of wolves that Arya's dire wolf, Nymeria, is supposedly leading. Me thinks we might see her tonight.

Perhaps the Walkers aren't the purely evil beings they are depicted as.

This is the GRRM way - there is no such thing as pure evil, and no such thing as pure goodness. All characters have both endearing qualities and personality flaws (some more than others). I don't expect the White Walkers to be any different. We already saw in Episode 1(?) (where the Night's Watch 'sacrifices' an infant to the walkers) that the white walkers are willing to barter/work with the humans.

Can somebody remind me of when/why the hound killed the dude with the eyepatch who was then brought back to life? And who is the guy with the eyepatch?

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Beric Dondarrion is the guy with the eyepatch. Ned Stark sent him out in season 1 to patrol, and it ended up developing into the Brotherhood Without Banners.

He and the Hound knew each other, and they dueled when the Brotherhood caught him and Arya. His death introduced us to the resurrection powers of the Red Priests/Priestesses

little more background... Lord Dondarrion was sent out with Thoros of Myr and 100 men to bring Gregor Clegane to face the King's Justice for raiding and pillaging the Riverlands. The Mountain was raiding the Riverlands under Tywin Lannister's orders, in response to Tyrion Lannister being captured by Caitlin Stark and taken to the Eryie. Ultimately this was the beginning of the War of the 5 Kings.

Dondarrion, Thoros and their men were ambushed by the Mountain and decimated, suffering over 50% losses, including Dondarrion who was struck down by the Mountain himself. The remainder of the force scattered into the Riverlands and later Thoros, a resurrected Dondarrion (who renounced his lordship) and remnants of their forces formed the Brotherhood Without Banners to protect the common folk of the Riverlands from the various raiding armies that took turns raiding, burning and pillaging the area.

Well Fuck. That invasion plan didn't work out so well. Those sand snakes fought like shit in a pitched battle.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

The Sand Snakes were always more like assassins than warriors. Extremely dangerous assassins, but their strength was not pitched battle against large numbers of opponents. Especially in tight quarters like on a ship, they are only going to be so effective. Note that they either went down to Euron who is an elite level warrior or being swarmed by multiple enemies in tight quarters.

I wasn't unimpressed with their skill in battle, they were greatly outnumbered and Euron turned out to be quite the battle master. The two on one fight with him and the two daughters was one of my favorite in the series, albeit having a bad result. I can't imagine anyone is rooting for Euron (especially anyone who is familiar with his character in the books).

honestly, who was rooting for anyone in that fight? Two of the most shallow characters invented for the show who spew terrible dialogue and murder children vs the definition of psychotic madman.... I'm just sad all 3 of the snakes weren't taken out fighting.

I was hoping Theon would rise to the occasion, but...

What exactly was he going to do? His options were pretty limited.

A) Charge Euron, who would either...
1) cut Yara's throat and then split Theon's skull?
2) toss Yara aside and then split Theon's skull?

B) Run away, leaving his sister alive and being able to potentially warn Dany & Co of Euron's ambush.

That was the only way that episode could end. Tied up the Dorne plotline and now we done have to deal with that annoyance anymore and now it forces Danys hand into needing to attack Kings Landing head on. This season was always on a collision course with Cercei vs The World, and now that's the only course left. Pffft as if a blockade would happen in this show.

Ransom..
Cersei.. 'Yo Dorne.. Ellaria your Queen is our captive. Go stomp the Tyrells or we behead her" Seeing how Dorne may not take too kindly to that approach, Cersei may just get revenge by donating Ellaria and her daughter to Qyburn's experiments.

Who knows what Euron will do with Yara. Probably just kill her like he intended to do after the Kingsmoot.

Ellaria is not the Dornish queen. She's a Sand; a bastard. While she was the mistress of Prince Oberyn, she doesn't hold any political power in Dorne.

In the show, Ellaria killed Cercei's daughter so Ellaria? She ded.

I don't know that she ever named herself queen, but she was/is the ruler of post-Martell Dorne. Remember when she murdered Doran Martell and his guards just sat there and watched because they were tired of the diplomacy and scheming he favored and wanted the direct action against the Lannisters that she promoted? She wasn't doing it to install someone else as leader.

Kill the daughter in front of her, then kill Ellaria in some public fashion. The question is who is leading Dorne now, because she took power and now Dorne is rudderless.

I think Yara survives because she takes over the Iron Islands in the end.

Wonder if Dany will promote Tyrion since his plan is working out sooo well. Looks like Lady Olenna is right again

I'm just excited we got to see a Direwolf again

Finally the whole non game of thrones feel good crap didn't end up leaving us with a yay throb grew a pair and instead evil wins and honestly that came out of no where I thought euron was going to get gendry as the last Baratheon he would've been a good gift but hey why not a whole mother fleet and their leader, this new emo euron ain't messing about

Sam has won me over after I used to cringe at his appearances and this episode was neat to see him try and cure Jorah dunno if it'll work will be interesting to see

Interesting that Jon slammed and choked little finger the same way Ned did over catlynne except this time it was over Sansa definitely don't think that was for nothing there

Interesting to see if Jon finds out about the dornish and iron born fleet getting sacked before the vampire queen with her fire breathers tries to force him to bend the knee

I swear if Jon gets to dragon stone before bran made it from the wall to winterfell I will uncover the magical hidden tractor beam they're using to move characters around westeros cause ain't no way the wall is that far from winterfell unless bran is still being dragged by the wee lass

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

1) Euron went shopping at Hot Topic during the summer and is proudly showing his new wardrobe during the new school year

2) Whatever happened to the Dragon glass Sam found used it to kill the wight. If he had kept it, he clearly could use that on Jorah

Jon lost the dragon glass at hardhome I thought

JSnow losing his temper with Little finger the same way Ned did doesn't bode well for him. Things may be "going south" for ol' Jonny (literally and figuratively). Also shows he still has some maturing to do as a leader if little finger can goose him that easily.

EDIT: I'm also not sure why Sansa doesn't just murder Little Finger and feed his body to the dogs. They don't need him anymore and his claim on the Eyre is tenuous at best. My thinking is that he'd hardly be missed and it would be super easy to co-opt the Eyre in his absence. While he's still alive, he's a major risk.

My speculation is that Jon Eryn is a firecracker and the only one who can soothe him is littlefinger. If the starks kill littlefinger after he just led the armies to the north's aid, the knights will attack.

I interpret the episodes as taking place over months, not days/weeks. The audience doesn't need to be updated on every uneventful pit stop that Jon Snow takes between Winterfell and Dragon Stone.

Agreed, this is one of the more obnoxious criticisms of the show.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Yeah the time scale of the show is clearly months weeks or months between each episode (Ravens can only fly so fast).

Buuut still not sure how Euron had the time to build all those ships, unless he came across some power tools during his travels

This is the one "time" issue I just can't seem to get over. I've just skimmed over/ignored the rest, but the dude just built an IRON armada in a few months at most. Euron must have went to VT because he is apparently a hell of an engineer...

Yara and Theon fled the Iron Islands with their loyalists and sailed all the way around Westeros, across the Narrow Sea and then along the southern coast of Essos to meet Dany in Slavers bay. A quick trip that is not..

Nymeria will be back...

I hope. I really wanted that reunion. I'm so disappointed.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

My theory is that Arya might actually (sort of) be a 'faceless man', and Nymeria recognized that she's no longer (completely) Arya Stark, thus letting her live, but not embracing her as family.

Edit: I'm wrong

Twitter me

Wasn't there a point in the series earlier where Arya sees a wolf and is ready to kill it, then realizes its not Nymeria? Or am i confusing it with something else?

My theory is that Nymeria is just a wild direwolf now and her home isn't with Arya anymore. Arya recognized that as Nymeria walked away, with the words "That's not you" a reference to when she told her father she would never be a lady in waiting. Arya recognized that Nymeria would never be her pet.

You're spot on. Showrunners confirmed this in the "Inside the Episode" for the episode. You either watched that or you're really good at interpreting the show.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

I didn't get the direct connection to the earlier episode until the post-show but I did see it as Arya recognizing that Nymeria had grown up and changed as much as she herself had, and wasn't a pet anymore.

Nymeria is no more tame than arya is. So when arya is asking her to come with her its to going back to when she is a tamed pet. A scene i think is going to be replicated later between sansa and arya.

They are who they are now. No going back.

But i do think Nymeria will come to save Arya later

Dany is definitely turning into the "bad guy"

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Nope.

Well...I think she is. And that, kids, is how you debate like gentlemen.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Hey the Targ's have the whole "|Foreign Invader" thing down to a T! And Dany is Westerosi in only the loosest sense having been born on Dragonstone and spirited away soon after.

Its in a sense both liberating to have someone who literally couldnt give a shit about the entire plot of the previous 6 seasons that wasnt about her except how it relates to her having an easier time taking over, who will pledge to her, and which of those with a hand in her family's ruin remain alive. And vaguely freeing people from shitty lives by empowerment or dragon fire as needed. But it also means that the Westerosi characters we have become emotionally invested in have a much harder time reaching what we might find a satisfying conclusion through their own acts or agency now that there is this young woman with a well trained army, a barbarian horde, and 3 WMD's with 0 interest in the status quo.

I just can't see GRRM having a singular character go the distance and never once have much dark to her (minus her family history). There's a video on youtube that goes way in depth with it (like 15-20mins)...spells it out extremely well and has me convinced that in the end she will indeed be the big baddie of it all. The way she was acting with her council last night and the "jon snow best be coming here and bendin a knee" deal literally the moment after she learned of his existence, my lightbulb started going off. It'd be right up his Martin's alley to pull some shit like that too.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

See this is where I'm at I feel in the end she could twist and be a mad targaryen so in the end like a lot of characters isn't the graceful heroin people thinks she is especially with the whole come bend the knee to Jon which I think is a bit excessive, especially noting that her fleet just got sunk and dorne may no longer be under her she's got only the tyrells to back her she's not exactly unbeatable

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

The Dany storyline has gone in waves, at least for me. First season you have her Dothraki storyline where she's basically a Viserys who knows how to shut up and push her agenda silently. Then you have seasons 2-4 where she becomes a good queen, frees the slaves, takes over cities, and is listening mainly to Jorah. That was her peak which she hasn't been able to reach since.

The turning point was when she had that guy's head chopped off in season 4 or 5 for literally no reason, while the whole crowd is begging her not too. She follows that up by feeding an innocent guy to the dragons just to frighten the other prisoners. I blame this change mostly on Daario who is bloodthirsty yet a lot of time tries to claim the moral high ground (also definitely not a high IQ guy). Really glad they got rid of that guy, although who wouldn't love to see Bronn kick the crap out of him in a battle of the two main rogue "sellsword" characters.

*GASPS* I loved Daario in the straightest, manliest way possible. I was so sad when she cut him loose.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Hahah he is a likable character, but everything that he had going for him I liked better in Bronn (except for maybe the smoothness he used to win over Dany).

Separately him and Daenarys aren't bad characters, but they are undeniable bad for each other. Daario pushes her to be more ruthless when it pretty much comes naturally for her anyways. And she pushes him to be a whipped little b**ch who is all the more eager to chop off heads in order to "serve" her.

I really liked Theon having his Reek-induced panic and jump overboard. That's just good character consistency. Anyone that expected him to throw down vs his crazy uncle hasn't been paying attention.

That said, I do still think we are going to get a moment of redemption for Theon. It may not be something grandiose, and frankly I hope it isn't cheesy. Just something to show that he ultimately was able to "nut up"...excuse the pun

Yep, they did an excellent job showing how you don't just recover from something like that being done to you. The triggers and such causing him to panic, perfectly done. And I'm sure many of you were like me, you really wanted Theon to step up there and try to save his sister, but you knew he wasn't going to be able to. It made the scene that much better, bravo.

I absolutely lost it at that scene. They set it up so perfectly as the stereotypical man-finds-his-courage-and-helps-his-partner-defeat-the-enemy-despite-long-odds scene and then...

Looks like we've found a new abandon thread gif.
