    [Poll] How would you rate episode 802?

    Solid 8/10. This was the first legitimately good episode of GoT in years. It may not have had the narrative thrill of faithfully adapted book material (no one does aSoIaF like Martin, after all), but it also didn't have any of the usual flaws that were present even in the early seasons. It might be one of the few well-rounded episodes of the entire show. It was honestly a pleasure to watch, something I didn't think was possible anymore with my level of indifference to GoT. Granted, you need ignore the seasons worth of hackneyed storytelling and unearned character developments, but if you can accept the spirit of what the show runners want you to feel it work very well. Cogman was always the one writer other than Martin that seemed to give a damn about these characters and how they would really behave, and this was a stark contrast last week's typical GoT experience. It was nice to be able to root for Sansa for once, or finally see book Jaime and Brienne again (her being knighted was the best scene of the episode), or Theon have a scene with Starks that he had a real connection with (even if one of them is show only). Even Arya's coldness felt like a natural progression of her story over the years. And Ghost was back!

    You can be very distantly related to the Targaryens, and still be a dragon-rider.

    Dany's not being able to burn is something that is only special to her, not all Targaryens.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Sorry if my comment sounded condescending. I was referring to the fact that the show gives us info or scenes right before they are needed, unlike the books, which plant seeds at various times to sprout/bloom as needed. Probably should have just said that!

    Dany’s denial

    Yeah I agree with you. After all D&D have clearly said in the "Inside the Episode" video that only a Targaryen can ride a dragon. Of course D&D also said Dickon was Sam's older brother in the video so they clearly don't know what they are taking about.

    Forgot about that. So much for that theory. Would have been awesome though lol

    Arya Losin' It

    This is hilarious. Do all Europeans have no problem with sex and murder? And what does sex have to do with murder anyhow? They are about as far apart from one another as could be. Lol

    Sansa -- "What of the North??"

    I wouldn't take Littlefinger's Protege's words at face value when talking to an opponent. Sansa was toying with Dany through that whole scene. She assumed the worst (Jon is manipulated) and found out it wasn't true (Dany was). Hence, her smile. I wish you would stop using the word infatuation when Jon hasnt even said anything about his feelings about her, from his own mouth.

    Dany’s denial

    Yeah, Jon can burn
  11. The Knight of Flours

    Dany’s denial

    The dragon-riding scene from E1 would probably have made more sense if Dany used it as a test for Jon with the 'nice knowing you' line etc and then their arrival at the waterfall being her acceptance that it is true.

    Dany’s denial

    Didnt Jon burn his hand in season 1?

    The white walkers want Jon Snow alive???

    He didn't talk with Theon in private though. Although Theon isn't a Stark and he was born at the Iron Islands, he spent the majority / half of his life prior to the beginning of the story at Winterfell and he probably considers it his home (ithe dialogue with Yara in the last episode seems to imply it). Theon defending Bran in the godswood seems like a perfect opportunity for something like Theon: "I'm sorry for what I did, Bran!" Bran: "It's fine. The LINE". But even if this doesn't happen, I think Bran can still say the line to Jon or Arya or so when they have doubts or regret their past. But I don't want to reject your theory that the NK is a Stark and that Bran says the line to him. It would be an interesting twist.

    Arya Losin' It

    Have we seen a different show? Where is she robotic? The flirtatious scene in E1 was everything else than robotic. The forgery talk in E2 was fine.

    Sansa -- "What of the North??"

    I think part of bending the knee was for love part of it being sorry that her "child" died saving him, and part to save the north. I know a lot of people say he just did it for love but lets not forget his first true love, Ygritte. He truly loved her and she wanted to stay in the save with him. He could have ran off with her but he left his love to do what's best for his brothers.

    Dany’s denial

    My guess is that she tries to burn him for treason, and he doesn’t burn.

    Ghost

    Yes, after all they showed him. Doing nothing. Small as a dog. Sadly. They should have invested a little bit more love in this detail.
  18. Kajjo

    Dany’s denial

    Obviously. I was not glad with the easy ride in E1. That was bad story-telling.
  19. King Jon Snow Stark

    Sansa -- "What of the North??"

    Sansa and Jon are working on their partnership. She does have faith in him. At least that’s what she says. That was the whole point of the Arya/Jon and Jon/Sansa scenes for episode 1. The Stark children are good. They are just rebuilding their relationships and it’s going to have bumps in the road.
  20. Kajjo

    The Crypt

    Yeah, maybe. Very unclear at the moment. Sam still has this horn, but I am afraid it will be of no use in the show. But in the books there are so many hints to it.
  21. Coffeewiththegods

    Dany’s denial

    Yea i can see that but, idk It just seems like It would’ve made more sense storytelling wise for him to ride a dragon after the reveal.
  22. Kajjo

    Sansa -- "What of the North??"

    Sansa explicitly talked about him being in love and that this might have clouded his mind. The two of us have an entirely diffrent take of the show. We won't agree on much, unfortunately. Infatuation is not black-and-white. Not all or nothing. He bend the knee in the cozy bed scene, that doesn't mean he sometime thinks anyway. My goodness.
  23. Bran Snow

    The most tearful reunion... was a bit strange.

    How about the look Dany gave when Theon (who was swore to Dany) said he was there to fight for Sansa. Damn.
  24. Kajjo

    Who is Going to Die

    There will be a fight in the Crypts and there will be losses, but I am not worried for Samwell Tarly, Gilly and Little Sam. Maybe Varys arc is finished. No need for him anymore, I believe. The fireplace farewell scene foreshadows a lot of losses, I am afraid. I like her very much, but I believe Brienne will die as knight, Edd and Beric, too, probably. I expect Jamie to survive for some endgame with Cersei, though. I'd like Tormund to survive, but I am afraid he won't. I am sure Arya and Sansa survive the battle. I expect Theon and his Iron men to die with honor after all their dishonor. Jorah probably dies, despite his new sword. Jon and Daenerys... very difficult to predict.

    [Spoilers] E802 Discussion

    Valar morghulis.... all men must die... what if we are all looking for clues, but it’s already spelled out for us. Kingslayer-he kills the knight king. And it’s been there the whole time. What if Valar morghulis is supposed to be taken literally, all men must die. Literal all “men” must die. We already have the women taking over. So Instead of men ruling, we have women ruling. In the end all the men die.... not the boys.

    Sansa -- "What of the North??"

    Look if Jon was infatuated he would tell them how great Dany is. He didn't. This really doesn't sound like Jon Snow's character who is his father's son -- who also didnt think with his dick. If he's infatuated, he should fail. Sansa should make sure this dumbass makes no more important decisions for the North because thats just idiotic. And yet Sansa still trusts him to do right by the North. Wow he even has Sansa fooled too?
