The imagery of Dany walking up to Dragonstone.  

Cersei's desperation.

The Hound becoming human.

The Arbor Gold.

And Sam at the center of 'will the wall still hold?'

The cold open was great and a nice payback scene since we get so few moments like that one.

I also loved the Hound's scene - he brought so much humanity to this story. I love his dialogue and comments to Thoros and Beric.

I enjoyed the conflict with Jon and Sansa and that it was still with respect and love toward one another.

The white walkers and the dead walking forward in the mist. That was amazing.

Dolorous Edd - he just makes me smile.

Euron Greyjoy - he was fun.

I liked the song performed by Ed Sheeran

No Tyrion's jokes as well as no Dany's speech.

I loved the throw back to season 4 with Araya & the Hound with the father & Daughter.  For me that was the complete transformation of the Hound.  It started when he saw what they did to Rob & Greywind.  He truly became Araya's protector then.   And How this little girl could have been Araya without the right protection.   I loved how as soon as they road up to the place, he knew what it was and who lived there.   Also, loved how he gave them a burial( maybe he & the brotherhood should have burned them instead). 

 

Also, Araya AKA Walder Frey.  The throw back to the book.  The Soup AKA wine. 

 

Lyana Mormont, what else is there to say.  Love Her.

 

Tourmond, want to get whipped by Brienne.

 

I gave the Episode 8/10

Few, very few things in fact. The opening scene with Arya poisoning the Freys, Jaime's discussion with Cersey and Jon's discussion with Sansa were sort of ok.

Well, the thread is about what I LIKE, so I feel not to have the rigth to elaborate on the rest.

The Hound scene was good in concept if flawed in execution.

The music is back to being good after the final episode of last season.

I didn't love this episode at all, but Euron Greyjoy was hilarious! :D

The whole Hound scene. Although I always hoped farmer and daughter would survive the show

Sam's scenes.

Bran and Meera's scenes.

The moment when Jaime looks at Cersei when Euron says that killing a brother feels good.

Everyone please remember it is the positivity thread, so we are not looking for negative responses here, thank you. :)

The Hound's scenes were superior to everything else.

The short shot of the Others and their army (+ giants) was nice too.

As far as i remember, this is for the first time since season 1 the phrase "Long Night" was mentioned. Old Nan mentioned it to Bran and i don't think anyone else mentioned it in later seasons. Correct me if i am wrong.

 

Finally we have Arbor Gold on the show. Better late than never.

Who is Araya? I don't seem to recall there being a character by that name in the show.

Jon Snow mentioned the Long Night at Hardhome. Also, in the Battle of the Bastards episode, discussing Mance, Tormund says, "I thought he was the man to lead us through the Long Night. But I was wrong." Melisandre may have mentioned it to Stannis, too, on their march to Winterfell, but I may be wrong about that one.

This episode had a lot of great moments thats for sure! Although laid back and chill still viewer pleasing IMO.

 Arya taking the revenge against the Freys to the next level. Also seeing Arya just sitting around and being a normal person and having a normal conversation with a group of people. 

Seeing Jon and Sansa disagreeing but also still supporting and admiring each other.

Brienne and Tormund.... always get some good chuckles in those moments.

Euron!! Very into him, probably going to be my favourite villain yet. "Two good hands"

Hound moments were so good, he is in the process of trying to turn his life around (as much as he possibly could), it seems like he's trying to be a part of something instead of just living for himself. I think him facing some actual evidence of the consequences of his actions on top of having  a "religious experience" are going to help him in his journey. 

Of course, seeing Dany finally reach Westeros!

 

Can't wait for next Sunday!

The fact that Jaime drew attention to the fact that Cersei has no political support or food supplies or really anything that would make her last on the throne. 

Euron's rock star design. Fits the character so much more than that ridiculous Theon replica look he had last season. And if Cersei is wearing floor length leather jacket, why can't he be a rockstar? 

Arya and Ed Sheeran scene. I loved everything about that. 

Tormund leering at Brienne. That was the one thing that made me laugh in a positive sense. Love Tormund. 

That's about it. 

I also wanted to like the Hound's grave digger scene but it was so damn dark I just thought about how pissed I am that it's so damn dark. 

And I also started liking the Sam's Citadel Internship montage but it was too long and the length of the snaps were not well proportioned. So it kinda made my eyes twitch after a while. 

So those were good scenes too.
