  1. In the crypts of Winterfell iron longswords are placed across the lap of each who had been Lord of Winterfell, to keep the vengeful spirits in their crypts. There's only one person entombed in the crypts without such a longsword, Lyanna Stark. If there's any vengeful spirit haunting Winterfell it is most likely hers.
  2. Thanks Castellan. Glad to hear you're OK but sad to hear about your family member. I hope it's not too bad.
  3. I don't think Castellan has posted since this thread went dead. Does anyone know if she's OK?
  4. Brienne is a descendant of Dunk. I think the crackpot theory generator is broken.
  5. For the first time in two seasons we had an episode where everything (except for Cersei being crowned) made sense. For that reason alone I gave this episode a 10/10. Plus, how could you not love Olenna Tyrell telling off the sand snakes.
  6. I liked this episode and if it had come earlier in the season I would have given it a higher rating, but in the last two seasons episodes 8 were Hardhome and The Mountain and the Viper. It's probably unfair but I expect episode 8 to be amazing and this week it was just good. 5/10 largely because of my inflated expectations.
  7. Lyanna Mormont was flawless and the Hound was flawless, also Jaime's scenes at Riverrun were close to the book. I really liked this episode because it felt more like the book story than we've seen in a lot of episodes for the last two years. 8/10 perfectly happy with this episode.
  8. The show's been pretty schizophrenic this season so far. Every episode has had some really good scenes and some really bad scenes and I've based my rating on which I thought there was more of. This was the first episode this season where I didn't think there were any really bad scenes, but it also was a pretty dull episode without a lot of great scenes. I gave it 6/10, it's a perfectly fine episode without much to complain about but I hope it's a set up episode for some spectacular stories later in the season.
  9. Finally an episode that lives up to the quality we've come to expect from the earlier seasons. I only gave it a 9/10 because the king's moot didn't make much sense and Littlefinger's scenes were a little off but the ending was flawless.
  10. This was the first episode of the season that I thought lived up to the quality we've seen in previous seasons. The only really negative part for me was Ramsay killing Osha (they're still cleaning up loose threads from earlier seasons). Solid 8 in my opinion.
  11. I gave the episode a very generous 7. D&D used the episode to clean up a lot of the messes they'd created in previous seasons. The Dornish story line in season 5 was cartoonishly bad? Kill everyone in Dorne. Have you changed your mind about whether to include the Greyjoys in future seasons? Burn the fleet Daario bought for Dany. But I think the story lines for Jon, Sansa, Arya, Jaime, Tyrion. & Dany are still strong. I'm looking forward to the return of Bran next week. Every season has a slow first episode, this episode suffered from the need to clean up issues from previous seasons, but overall I think it's still solid.
  12. This is one of the few episodes where I thought the show surpassed the books, 10/10 Also, Wun Wun is my new hero.
  13. Last weeks episode I rated a 1. It was the most disappointing episode of the show so far. This week was an absolute 10, the best episode since the Red Wedding.
  14. I know. There's nothing in the books that Euron does that a living Balon couldn't also do. And with Daario buying Dany 93 ships "because I heard you liked ships" there might not be a reason for Victarion to join the story. Throw on top of that that Asha/Yara already tried to rescue Theon and there's no need for a Kingsmoot. I think D&D have decided to cut the whole Greyjoy storyline. I hope I'm wrong because Euron's one of my favorite characters.
