I was expecting way worse from Cersei. Is the poison the one Oberyn used on the Mountain?

I'm not sure this interaction between Jon and Dany is living up to the hype.  We've been waiting years for this and it's kind of flat.

Oh good, more Littlefinger/SunTzu bullcrap.  I'm kind of disappointed in this episode so far and I was really looking forward to it.

Cancel that.  Bran's home.  AWESOME!

..Maybe don't creepily recount her rape to her, Bran?

So...Sansa just left a crippled kid in the freezing cold?  This seems...unwise.

The maester's lecture sound like Dumbledore lecturing Harry Potter right before awarding points to Griffindore

No, it's the one Ellaria used on Myrcella.

That was kind of anticlimactic until now

I'm sorry, but I'm going to say it.  This show was more interesting with intrigue and spycraft and politics.  Jumping from battle to battle like this feels rushed.

So, based on the preview, I'm guessing that Jon talks Dany into going north to wipe out the white walkers so that he'll throw his support behind her in the war against Cersei.  Now that she has no allies left, he has the leverage to make demands.

5 minutes ago, Stark side of the MoonDoor said:

So will Tyrion be vindicated for Joffrey's murder?  

I guessing Cersei will insist that she conspired with Tyrion.  Forgiveness is not her long suit.

Finally, this episode did not dither around with nonsense between minor characters, and got right to the important scenes we need.

I loved how Drogon buzzed Jon as soon as he said he was no Stark. The fierceness of Dany made me cringe but Jon stood up to her without pushing her. Interesting balance.

As bad as Cersei is, I can't see the wrong in the way she avenges Myrcella's death. Cersei's love for her children is her humanizing quality.

No, sadly Tyrion will not be vindicated for Joffery's murder. Tyrion is guilty of being born, unforgivable in Cercei's eyes.

I suppose Ghost was left in the North to avoid difficulties. Maybe or maybe not.

There was a lot of good stuff in this episode and I'm looking forward to more.
