  1. A great episode! Very well done and very exciting. My only sadness is that the battle for Winterfell story was a little far from other battles as told in the books. For example, in A Game of Thrones Robb Stark had a very complicated plan that involved dividing his army to fight three battles, but it was very well thought out and dealt with the same situation as Jon Snow had. At least in the books the characters keep thinking of ways to reduce their numerical disadvantage...in this episode Ramsay Bolton did most of Jon Snow's work for him by shooting arrows at his own knights. Why didn't Ramsay send his infantry in a shield wall to halt the Stark calvary and shoot arrows at them? The calvary are more valuable than infantry. That would have kept his calvary safe to trample the remaining wildings and archers near the treeline. And Sansa secretly getting Baelish to bring in the knights of the Vale to overrun the Boltons was too simple a solution. I wonder why Jon so patiently waited until daytime to face the entire Bolton army. Instead of trying to treat with Ramsay, he should have tried to sneak into Winterfell at night, rescue Rickon and open the gates. At night the wildings would have had a better chance of sneaking in to Winterfell by foot.
  2. I've noticed that the White Walkers just seem to be mindless zombies, unlike Lord Randyll Tarly. I've also noticed that since A Clash of Kings, none of the battles really had much planning beforehand, unlike the Battle of the Whispering Wood and the Battle of Blackwater Bay. It seems that the supposedly greatest threat, the White Walkers, will be easily defeated, assuming Westeros just simply deploys the correct weaponry (Valyrian steel, fire, Dragonstone, etc.). I was so hoping that Jon Snow/Targaryen, Danaerys Targaryen and others would have had to work together to make a good plan to fight the White Walkers, who hopefully will develop enough intellectual capability to come up with some good attack plans together. Please George R. R. Martin, don't make defeating the White Walkers like beating Sauron in Lord of the Rings. Bring us back to the good old days of A Game of Thrones where an actual plan was required.
  3. I thought "The Ice Dragon" takes place in Westeros...possibly during the Dance of the Dragons civil war: http://www.blastr.com/2014-8-4/george-rr-martins-ice-dragon-set-song-ice-and-fire-world-be-republished
