    An Entire Season without Ghost

    The reason is consistency. When a character that has been developed, is absent for an uncharacteristic length of time, it is not in keeping with the story line. It lets the viewers down. The viewers are feeling some disappointment on this matter. In this case it is not pivotal to the story. But when Ghost does reappear, it will be in a great big leap in a dramatic fight, then it will be over.

    It suggests that not all Bran's visions are spontaneous and instant access. Some he has to look for. Perhaps this is part of his growing into the role of being the three eyed raven that he spoke of. And Sam... lol, it seems what she said eventually sunk in. Sam is a good husband/partner if nothing else.

    I heard them say it too. I know a few things about production budgets and I still say b.s.. If they didn't have the money, they overspent somewhere else, didn't plan for something off screen or had a sick/ drunk actor who couldn't remember their lines and took all day to shoot a scene that should have taken less time. Another member made the point that they could reuse old cgi. They could and probably get away with it. They didn't plan far enough ahead if they ran out of money for the little bit of cgi that was needed to have a glimpse of Ghost. He is an oversized dog, not a giant or a dragon.

    Not in the budget? I doubt it. The series is popular enough to be able to budget for some more cgi, not pick and choose. They let the genie out of the bottle, they need to plan accordingly.

    That's a bummer. At least they had a scene with Ghost to cut out. What did it save them? Ten seconds? How long does it take to pan around the yard and Winterfell and see a Ghost? lol.

    I think Baelish died in a way that fitted with his character. His crying was fake at first but a weasel like Baelish would cry and whimper for real when he realized his games were up and he was totally out of control. He was a worm, sneaky, manipulative little shit, not a fighter. Neither Sansa nor Arya has the strength to behead someone so they had to execute him in their own way. I think this is the justice Baelish earned and deserved. He deserved to die powerless, begging, without kin or kith, whining and laying on the floor squirming and choking in his blood. Of all the people he has screwed over, it is the Starks that he has screwed over the most, used and then infected with his presence. When things change, like women being in charge instead of men, and women fighting alongside men, then the way an execution takes place changes too. It took Sansa and Arya working together to kill execute Baelish, the Starks passed the sentence and carried it out by working together. Sansa has not killed with her own hands, though she has killed. She does not know how nor want to use a knife or a sword. Arya on the other hand is quite good at killing and now that she and Sansa are working together, as well as Bran, they can manage the various aspects of ruling together. The weakness of one is covered by the strength of another.

    Back when Jon was in the nights watch, they at least have us a glimpse of Ghost gnawing on a mammoth bone wild aroch bone or perhaps a horse leg bone. That's all it takes. A glimpse of Ghost lounging lazily.

    Some lard and bees wax might do the trick. Helps to bathe only a few times a year too.

    Oh yeah. He picks up the wriggling hand and stares in awe. Shouldn't the hand start choking him? Isn't that how zombies work?

    Allow me to whinge just a little more here. I really did not like seeing Arya threaten to kill Sansa. That sort of nutso stuff may fly in the real world but in GOT world, the Stark family has been struggling to survive and get back home for 7 seasons.. Arya has been ruthless, but not unstable. The reasons why she could not continue to be a faceless man is because she could not let go of her identity, Arya Stark of Winterfell. Now she goes home and threatens to start killing off what little is left of the Starks of Winterfell because she is pissed about Sansa being a snooty, well brought up lady? The other reason Arya couldn't be a faceless man is because she has a strong sense of justice, not just the killing kind. She refused to kill someone because the person who paid the fee was jealous and the person to be killed was a good person.This is not the kind of person who goes home to a long awaited home coming only to kill off the head of her household, sister and protector. Arya has or had a better purpose than this.

    This episode was full of disappointments. I get that this is a dark story with little joy. But there is only so much destruction of the house of Stark I can take. I love Arya, but it utterly defeats the purpose of having her survive all that she has, only to come back home and destroy the resurrected house Stark by killing Sansa in a fit of vengeful, psychotic paranoia. Arya learned to survive but now she's totally damaged? She can't smile at Hot Pie or be glad he's alive? She only cares about Jon? She brings up petty crap that she dislikes about her older sister who she condemns for being good at what she was raised to be good at? Arya still seems pissed that Sansa was a better lady than she was and I thought Arya gave that up when she found a place for herself as a skilled killer. I thought Arya accepted that she was different and it was good a long time ago. So why do we have to revisit this and why does it have to be an Achilles heel now? Why does Arya now have to take out her childish resentments on her older sister when that is all they ever were in light of the fact that this family still exists when Arya believed it extinct? This sounds to me like 21st century motivation, hey what about my feelings, first world problems not 14th centuryesque Game of Thrones, grow up or die, bury your feelings in the dirt type of world. Like all lords and ladies, Arya learned her feelings weren't important, only her house. So this 'I need therapy for my anger' crap just doesn't do it for me

    I hope it's true, but my heart sank with this fight. I suspect it isn't so because if they were playing it up, why would Sansa go searching in Arya's room? I really don't want to see Little Finger pull one over on the Starks again. But Sansa would be out of character to not catch it and take advantage because she has been on the lookout for L.F. B.S. for a while now. If they are acting for L.F. then they are just that much more awesome. Which brings me to my desire to see them both killing him.

    At first I just assumed Cersie was lying to seem to empathize with Cat. But then she and Robert talked about the lost baby in another conversation. So perhaps news of the baby was not spread at first due to the fragility of newborns. I can't speak for GOT but until recent decades, pregnancies and births were kept fairly quiet until there was some degree of certainty that a child was healthy enough to survive. I am thinking that the fortune teller is not always right, or lied because it is very likely that Cersie killed the baby fathered by Robert.

    But she has already had 4 in t.v. GOT. Supposedly she had one child of Roberts that got sick and died. The Maggie didn't get that one.
