Hello, this is a very good point. D+D left everything hanging, didn't spoil some plot lines - so that GRRM could be the first to tell the story.
I am new and unsullied (have only read 1.5 books), but I have been reading this forum this season and I just had to join to comment -
I have been reading over and over about the stabby stabby on here and then there is actual shock that he is killed and not coming back… of course he is
spoiler alert -
'Jon always comes back' and besides if Jon and Tyrion turn out to be Targaryens they will be related to Dany and ride the other two dragons to fight against the WW
And Sansa can't die, she must end up on the Iron throne with her husband Tyrion.
I watched this episode twice and the second time it felt much better. I loved it when Theon suddenly pushed Myranda when she started to taunt Sansa about what Ramsay was planning to do with her private parts - that was too much for him to bear.
Cersi's walk was fantastic. I hate Cersi but at the end I shed a tear for her, I think it was that lovely music, similar to the Red Wedding.
I felt Arya's scene with Trant was rushed. We were straight in with the three girls and it was too fast - but see! No sex with young girls, no nudity or worse.. I was glad as there have been so many rape scenes.
I really didn't want Sansa to get raped. Mainly because that really did break her marriage to Tyrion, and stopped her from ever being Elizabeth 1 the virgin queen.
