"Do you believe we're here for a purpose?"

Aye, there's the rub. People believing in "purposes", like prophecies and believers in manifest destiny, are apt to make terrible choices based on their beliefs.

What a difference a script can make. If only 8x03 had been more like this...

I need to rewatch this scheming between the Imp and the Spider. I can't quite see what Varys intends here, how he will manage to back Jon over Dany in any meaningful fashion. But I'm sure it will get them both killed.

How much of it is the script, and how much of it is the director? This feels more like 8x02 to me.

Jaime returned to Cersei? God almighty. This is even too absurd to comment. 

Brienne's uncontrolled grief is for Jaime's guaranteed death.

I don t know. But this guy directed the first 2 eps and I think this one was much better.

We had some stupid things. Like arya sleeping with gendry and now breaking his heart. Euron and cersei can easily take out dragons, sudenly everybody dislikes or is afraid of danny...

But overall it seems a good episode.

Danny's face in that last scene... she is being pushed towards "mad king" status.

Remember the first line of the Iliad. It's all about the rage. Always.

I'm guess her burning the city down will make Jon go against her

I'm really confused about what his thinking is:  he's terrible and Cersei is terrible, so they should go be together?  WHY is he going back to KL?  To kill Cersei?  To warn her?  Because it's what he deserves?  He obviously loves and respects Brienne and knows what Cersei is...I'm just not understanding his motivation.  He knew that they were going to KL to get the IT from Cersei..I would assume that she would die in the process.  So now he knows Dany is down a dragon..what has changed for him, that he needs to go to KL too?
