    I guess I didn't make myself clear either. There is a HUGE advantage for the Stark girls in LF knowing Arya is faceless, but not knowing they know he knows..... It will entice him to come up with his brilliant master plan of seducing Arya to kill Sansa and wear Sansa's face to run the North the way Arya thinks it should be run. Only problem is, they planted the idea in LF's mind the same way he plants ideas in the minds of others.....therefore, he's dying by the sword by which he has lived.

    I posted this elsewhere..... If LF thinks that Arya has a keen mistrust of Sansa to support Jon, and LF understands that Arya has the wherewithal to take Sansa's likeness after killing her, giving her the avenue both to kill Sansa without repercussion and the power to run WF the way she thinks it should be run in support of Jon, and LF sees that Brienne has been sent away so that Arya could attack Sansa without Brienne to defend her, then In LF's logic, he needs only seduce Arya with the idea of killing her sister for the sake of a better realm. In this sense, there is an enormous advantage in knowing Arya is faceless, because it gives him the opening to ply his treachery.

    What she was doing in silence in that conversation was counter to the words she was speaking. And, wasting time so they can kill him in the finale. His death has to be poetic justice because of the weght of his character in teh beginning of the story. There is no more poetic justice than two girls (he's a pimp), one of them his perennial pigeon, bests him at his own game.
  4. While a deus ex machina is named after the ancient representation of gods in plays, it doesn not require a god be involved to be called that. Tolkiens eagles were classic deus ex machina, they are not gods. In fact, few uses of the plot device in modern times employ an actual deity.
  5. Season 7. Season 2 dragons never seemed to get anywhere with any speed anyway.
  6. Speaking of rail, can three dragons fit on a bullet train?

    This is the part of your post where we come to full agreement. I think you are underestimating the girls, just as LF is.

    I know I'm being repetitious to the point of spamming, but I believe they have taken her out of character because she is literally out of character, applying her thespian skills to take down LF. Even so, we saw in Crossroads that Arya (true Arya) has become something that is darker and more detached than what she was when she handed the coin to the ship's captain......An understandable change after HoB&W.
  9. Actually, even better, which I've mentioned before, is if Dany had stalked them up there secretly, wanted to see for herself what all this whitewalker commotion was about. That would put her on scene with no need for confusion of timing. She can come off as a control freak, so this action would have fit her character.
  10. The dragons have cave penetrating radar, of course.
  11. I think a good solution would have been for Bran to have a Raven sent to Dragonstone.
  12. Funny you say that, because watching the episode live, when Jon told Dany to go without him, I thought, "Fly, you fools!"
  13. The crow has a particular Sonic Drive In he likes to hit on the way, which pulls him 500 miles off course.
