Archmaester replied to LittleDragon8's topic in The Winds of WinterWell you've got me sold, nice theory! It would be pure GRRM to have one of the young Sand Snakes who no one pays mind to prove so pivotal to the Dorne plot. I can definitely at least see the Elia-sends-the-raven part happen, beyond that who knows.
Absolute 10 for me, a masterpiece. I honestly wasn't expecting it to be so damn powerful and tense having already read the books, but it really was stunning. Not bothered by any of the nitpicks that some have pointed out really, except maybe I would have liked Grey Wind to kick some ass before biting it. I personally loved the Yunkai and particularly Queenscrown stuff, it actually made Bran's arc relevant for the first time this season. But this episode will be remembered for one thing only and I can't stress how much I loved it, the sense of dread building up was fantastic and the payoff was brutal. Can't wait to get more Roose in the future, and can't wait to see the aftermath next episode... it's not even finished yet! All in all, one of my favourite episodes of any TV show ever.
