Valyrian steel is somewhat related to Dragonglass? Makes sense for that to workout, dragons being from Valyria after all.

There was also a mention of 'dragonsteel' in the books, and I thought it was separate from dragonglass. I think it's an offhand name for Valyrian Steel.

without a doubt one of the best episodes of the entire show the hardhome scene was incredible just epic in what it took on and succeeded with minus some ropey jon is such a great guy dialogue, Tyrion & Dany scenes were fantastic too , an easy 10/10

That was awesome. Everything I thought it'd be and more. Was hoping that unnamed woman wildling would survive and be a Val-like character. But I'm whatver I'm just glad Tormund and WunWun made it.

Holy Shit....I am holding out on a 10, but it was close. Solid 9.

I've been down on most of this season, so I don't know if it's just because I've been bombarded with mediocre to crap so far. But damn. That was good. I'm not enough of a book snob that I'm going to deny everything original a solid rating, as long as it makes sense and is compelling.



So, barring missing some major inconsistencies (a possibilty on rewatch), I'm giving that a 10. I haven't felt that way about anything visual in a long time.

Best battle so far. I yelled when LONGCLAW shattered the white walker.

10/10

Me too. Jumped on my couch and haven't stopped fist pumping since that scene.

37/10.

That was some awesome stuff. I don't care that it wasn't in the book, that just made it all the more surprising!

Gave it a 9. I can't recall anything that wasn't solid and I really liked how they did the Hardhome sequence. They covered a lot of ground, including some subtle hints of Jon's importance to the story, just in time to wrap Jon's ADWD arc. The Night's King I expect may be a plot device they've used to give the Other's a more coherent menace and emphasize their human origins. But it works for the show I think.

10/10



Dinklage did a great job, the last 20 minutes were pure butter. Dave and Dan do their best work when they focus on a major event.

I can't quite give this a 10; parts of the episode were really average, but the last 20-25 minutes were absolutely awesome. A very strong 9.



What I liked:


- Arya. Again, they're doing a very good job there. I think I'm enjoying that arc more than I did in the books


- Cersei. They had some great moments here, and Lena Heady really brought it with one of her best performances.


- Hardhome. Absolutely awesome from start to finish. The wildling negotiations was really well done, and they deserve particular credit for actually making me worry about Jon, even though I knew he wasn't going to die there. And the Valyrian steel reveal was fantastic.



What I wasn't wild about:


- The time spent with the Boltons seemed redundant, that scene should have been in next episode


- I really did not like Dany and Tyrion. There is no screen chemistry there, and the acting was frankly wooden from both parties. I don't know what it is about Dinklege's acting over the last couple of episodes, but it's been really sub-par. The main reason this got dragged down a mark.
