  1. 10/10 I've been waiting for The Wall to come down for something like 18 years. Would I rather have had it happened in the books? No question. But come'on, this is what we were waiting for! This episode was a genuine tour-de-force spectacle, logic and character development be damned. And we'll still have the books for the real story (I hope).
  2. There are some really great scenes in this episode. Like, really great: Lyanna Mormont, Jaime at Riverrun. I just don't understand why the season is moving so slow. I mean, they've been spinning wheels in King's Landing for 7 episodes now. Just get Dany to Westeros already.

    Yeah, it's really confusing to me. D&D keep on saying there will only be about 13 episodes after Season 6. If that's true, why all this filler? Why even introduce things like Euron, Dorne, and the siege of Riverrun? What are the heck are they doing? Could the story be... closer to the finish line than any of us think? I think Lyanna Mormont is my new favorite character.

    That all seems a little indirect. If Euron is the Night's King, why is he down in the Reach, instead of up in the North? There is no direct plot connection here. There's lots of hypothetical ways to bring down the Wall besides the Horn of Joramun, the existence of which has yet to be proven. The Others are the final boss. I think that's beyond dispute. But is there is a Night's King leading them? Who knows?

    A lot of the details changed since 1993. The three major plot acts have not. Stannis and Renly are side characters, just like Euron. None of them are really that important. It's possible Euron is connected with the Other storyline, I suppose. I just think it makes more sense for him to be an antagonist for Dany. I mean, he's currently trying to marry her, steal her dragons, and take over her kingdom. This antagonist role fits perfectly with the prophecies in the House of the Undying and it also fits with GRRM's leaked outline.

    Euron Greyjoy is definitely not the final boss of ASOIAF. GRRM's leaked outline clearly establishes that the three major acts of the story are 1) the War of the Five Kings, 2) Dany's invasion of Westeros, and 3) the Other invasion. Euron was not even a gleam in GRRM's eye when he came up with this plot. I think Euron will be one of Dany's major antagonists in the Dance of Dragons. Very much doubt he has anything to do with the Other invasion or the Wall.

    LOL. Yes. Euron isn't the dusky woman, either, though this idea about him potentially warging the people whose tongue he's cut out is interesting.

    I guess the big question is what is Euron's endgame? His original plan involved taking the Iron Fleet to Meereen and stealing Dany and her dragons. It appears that plan went to shit because of recalcitrant Ironborn. Now what? Does Euron have a Plan B? Or is Euron treading water until Vic comes back? I'm sure Euron has many prophetic visions from drinking shade of the evening. Or at least thinks he does--perhaps similar to Damphair's visions. If Oldtown is a nexus of magic, that might register on his prophetic radar. Or he might see a path to claim Westeros through another vision. He needs something big, though. Without dragons there is absolutely no way he can take the Iron Throne.

    Did she really say that? Must have burned it out of my brain. Catelyn Season 1 ≠ Lady Stoneheart. I agree, but Dorne and the Iron Islands have both made a comeback in a big way. Last season I honestly thought Euron was being written out of the show altogether, yet here he is. The Sand Snakes seems to be a replacement for Aegon's invasion, leading Dorne to rebel against the crown. So both these plotlines are more important for the main narrative than we had thought. How exactly? Who knows?

    You were right, we were wrong. Wish George had read this chapter years ago. I always thought Euron was after something in Oldtown. Perhaps related to the Citadel and their secrets? You've got a good point though. Euron may have ships but he doesn't have a land army, nor does he have the tools to break Oldtown's defenses, especially when Oldtown still has access to the rest of the Reach by land in the event of a siege. I don't see why the Hightowers would surrender their city given those facts. Of course Euron might have something (magical) up his sleeve, but in that case why not just go all the way and take the most powerful city in Westeros? I think you may be ascribing too much rationality to Euron when, based on what we know of him, he's actually a batshit insane warlock. Euron's story will be more magical than political IMO.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    Loved the play--one of the best scenes in the whole series IMO--and Bran's escape. Really a strong episode across the board. I hate everything related to Littlefinger. They have turned the man into a complete buffoon. Nothing but Joffrey with a mustache at this point.

    Roose Bolton is maybe the most perfectly cast actor in the entire series. He will be missed.

    How would you rate episode 602?

    So many shortcuts. So many contrived plots. I will never believe the wildlings took over Castle Black and only two people died. But I guess that's what the book is for. Euron must be more important to the plot than I thought if the show wrote him back in. Look how they treated Aegon! I really enjoyed this episode on the level on pure entertainment. Bran's visions, Tyrion taming the dragons, Euron's return, Ramsay's coup. And of course the moment we were all waiting for. This ball is rolling.

    Have to say I really liked that scene. Sort of ties into the "half of my army is made up of unbelievers" quote from the books.

    Okay, fine, you like that a bunch of boring stuff from AFFC/ADWD was cut. I don't agree but I respect that. Why do I care about the logistics of making a cable TV show? I'm not making the show, I'm watching it. What I see is what I critique. I agree with this.
