    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    It was a nice read. The kind of thing that makes you eager for more. Also, I believe that the description of the Rainwood contains a double shout-out to the Lord of the Rings. First the enormous willows on the banks of a stream (Old Man Willow) and then the reference to "beards of silvery moss"( Fangorn=Treebeard). The Rainwood itself is very Fangorn-like in general IMO.

    Drogon's flight was really emotional but the whole Shireen affair... I don't know what to think. I really liked Stannis so far but that was horrible. However, my main complaint with the episode is Jon's return. He could have mentioned to Sam or Thorne that he had just looked Death right in the eyes or something. I half expected the episode to begin with Jon giving a speech about what he had seen at Hardhome, instead... nothing. There was no follow up for awesomeness that was episode 8. Right now it looks like the battle of Hardhome was just there to fill up the "big fighting scenes" quota for season 5.
  3. 7/10 I'm being generous. I liked Braavos and Mereen. Drogon was great. The rest was just.... incredibly sad

    Hello everybody! Already made a couple of post but I thought a proper presentation would be appreciated. I am William_Tell and I'm from Switzerland. I like crossbows,apples and reading ASOIAF. I don't like hats, the Habsburgs and the Lannisters. More seriously: I found out about the ASOIAF forum while looking for opinions on the new season of GOT.I'm actually Italian Swiss and I am a history student and teacher.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    It looks like I have walked right into some sort of war between fans with my very first post. Don't mind me I like both show and books. No need to drag me in the field

    Loved the episode. It managed to bring the WWs invasion under the spotlight while keeping them shrouded in mystery just like in the novels. I also really liked Arya's scenes, finally Braavos looked like a real city and didn't just act as background. Unlike many, I was drawn to ASOIAF and GOT by the fantasy elements and not by the political conficts and plotting (which is still great, of course), so I am glad to see that the epic mythological conflict is beginning to gain more and more attention for both viewers and characters. The final moments of the episode are probably some of my favorite in the whole series, rivaled only by the birth of dragons back in season 1
