    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    I agree on both. Especially letting the Red Woman go. We do know that she meets up with Arya again at some point.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    There are times when I understand the teleport complaints, but this is not one of them. Obviously things taking place in the same episode are happening at different times. For example, sometimes scenes that clearly take place within one day are interspersed with scenes that take place days apart as with episode 7 of this season where Jon and Sansa's travels around the north must have taken at least month, while Arya and Jaime scenes take place during at most a couple of days. We simply don't know how much time has past between Varys meeting the Queen of Thorns and the scene where they are crossing the sea. It could be 3 months later.

    I am pretty sure that after Ja'qen frees Arya and her friends in season 2 he specifically invites her to come to Braavos so she can be trained to kill the people on her list. I always thought that this was a continuity error, but maybe not. Maybe the entire purpose of the training was not so she would become a faceless man but so that she could become Arya the avenging angel of the Stark family.

    Oh no. If they have Jamie killing Cersei the way he killed the Mad King to stop the burning of Kings Landing, I am going to be very sad.

    I think they are trying to show that since he died, Jon's a lot more of a pessimist. Understandably.

    My guess is that it was a rogue group of BwB who are fulfilling the role of the fake Hound crew (Biter et al) from the books.

    Couldn't disagree more. In my opinion, so far this has been one of their best seasons, my favourite since season 2. The plot has been moving along a breakneck pace, much faster than the last couple of seasons. And Lady Ollena is the great. Her verbal takedown of Cersei this week was fantastic.

    I think Rickon is already dead. Ramsay has no reason to actually keep him alive. He just needs to say that Rickon is alive to get Jon and Sansa to come to him.

    It's not. The letter is to Littlefinger asking him for his help in fighting the Boltons. That is why they had the scene where she sees the ravens that the Mormonts have. The letter to the Blackfish she just handed to Brienne.

    I was wondering about that also. Why in the world would she go back to the house of black and white?

    I was thinking the same thing. It is a message of how to beat the wights: Wildfire.

    My understanding is that they were not originally "Others" but rather soldiers that fought for the CoTF. After the peace was brokered they went rogue becoming the "Others."

    I didn't say that every Targ riding a dragon was fireproof only that some were. When Dany is burnt by Drogon she is barely burnt, while everyone else melts from Dragonfire. It seems that Dragonfire is more powerful than regular fire (can melt stone!) and still Dany is only mildly burnt from it. So she is extremely heat resistant such that regular fire does nothing to her and dragonfire just causes sores.

    I agree. My understanding in reading the books was that only certain rare Targs are fireproof, just like only rare Starks are wargs. There is a strain of these incredible abilities in each of these families but it is far from universal. Those Targs that are genuinely fireproof really do have "the blood of the dragon." In the books Dany may not know that she is always fireproof, not understanding how the power works.

    Here's my theory on the Umbers and Rickon. The Umbers are planning on turning on Ramsay (maybe the Karstarks are in on it too), but not of loyalty to the Starks. The Umbers don't care if there is a Stark in Winterfell or not, they just want to make sure that the Ramsay the psycopath is killed. Anyone who takes over after that will be better than Ramsay and the Umbers are willing to sacrifice Rickon to make it happen. They need Jon Snow to unite the North against Ramsay, and the death of Rickon or the hostage use of Rickon will motivate Jon.
