  1. That was a great scene, but the way they have to drag him away reminded me of Lancelot at the wedding in MP & the Holy Grail.
  2. Now that you mention it, that is a pretty fancy piece of pre-industrial structural engineering.
  3. Which set up the wonderful repartee between Tormund and Sandor so much later: "You do know her!"

    Season 8 Predictions?

    The Night King, having never been south of The Wall, will fly past King's Landing and end up in Dorne, where he abandons that whole Winter thing in favor of laying out on the beach and soaking up the rays. With all those undirected zombies stumbling about, Jon and Daenerys will develop the sport of wight-hunting on dragons. Sam will find the secret of incubating and hatching dragon eggs without necessity of human sacrifice, thus enabling them to establish a world-renowned stable of dragons for the hunt. The nobility will beggar themselves paying for dragon stud fees, throwing sand in the financial bearings of the Wheel. Varys, foreseeing that the countryside will run out of wights and the nobles will go back to hunting peasants again, persuades the Night King to go into the resurrection business. He refuses to leave the beach, so Varys hires the Ironborn to ship the dead on ice, both of which there is a never-ending supply that everyone wants to get rid of. Win-Win-Win-Win.

    PhD research: Doran Martell and you

    A man who, though weary and drawn by chronic illness, is sharp enough to not end up gutted in his chair by his libertine brother's crazy wife.
  6. Tyrion, Hound, Arya. Too bad the scriptwriters have turned their attention elsewhere. Sand Snake 1, Sand Snake 2, Sand Snake 3. Thank The Stranger they're dead.

    Arya, all matter-of-fact with Hot Pie. H: The secret is browning the butter before making the dough. Most people don't do that because it takes too much time. A: I didn't do that. H: You've been making pies? A: One or two.

    Shout out to Classical Warfare

    The detail on the Corvus was awesome, perfect for Euron's daemos-ex-machina entrance.

    Arya wargs the cat in the rafters to catch the Kindly Man when she's blind. Bran wargs Hodor (shades of Maaaster-Blaster). Jon, being somewhat dimmer about these things than a true Stark, doesn't quite get his link with Ghost dialed in, but we all know it's just because he's so busy busy busy in his head.

    Although they're imprinted on their mama, Danaerys's dragons are disobedient. At least three Stark children are wargs. Jon's been holed, Bran can't walk but will fly, and Arya's all cat and wolf. The dragon has three heads...

    Hodor? Hodor Hodor Hodor trope.
