They keep talking about Job being stabbed in every episode. Whats that going to lead to?
Its only in relation to Danerys so far though i think, so i haven't really thought much about it other than that it might become a trust issue between them later on.

Or that it might somehow prove he's a Targaryen to her.

Annoying the way Gilly potentially revealed a bit about that and Sam just waved it away.

I don't mind the accelerated pacing tbh, in fact I almost welcome it. A lot of the time in the past it was there to develop characters and shit, now we've pretty much met them all and everything's rapidly building to a climax so no need for 3 episodes of two people chatting while on a boat journey for a whole 60 minutes of screen time over the series.

Yeah I agree there. I can just assume it took them a few hours to get to Kings Landing without watching it.

For a lethal assassin and master of disguise, Arya sure got played by Littlefinger though didnt' she.

What was on the note she read? I could make out something about Sansa and Joffrey.
Arya is a little shit and she's not smart enough to outwit Littlefinger.

The attitude she threw at Sansa was completely unjustified. She fucked off for years and didn't give her sister any credit for surviving anywhere she was sent. At least Sansa matured as a person.

Nah she was spot on. And Sansa is regressing into her spoilt season one self since she got back to Winterfell.

Anyway you just love Sansa cos you were her arse double.

I wasn't her arse double :lol:

I don't think Sansa is regressing at all more so she's just done with taking shite from anyone - even Littlefinger. Everything she said about keep people onside was spot on. She can't help Jon if she pisses off the few men he has. Yes, she might enjoy being in charge but after years of being used like a chess piece, she's entitled to do what she likes

Arya just came in and mouthed off despite having fucked off on her own, suiting herself for years

ah now she was hardly just suiting herself, she became a fucking ninja and killed heaps of their enemies! She's right to be wary of sansa/littlefinger but littlefinger is making a mug of her

I can't decide if you're supposed to hate Sansa and Daenarys or if they're just poorly written but I definitely wouldn't mind the two of them being killed off.

Of the 7 beyond the wall I'd say Jon and the Hound will definitely be grand. Beric and Thoros I'd expect could be fucked, and I'd say Thormund is a goner too. I could see Jorah dying too, don't expect Gendry to be killed next week so soon after going missing for 3 and a half seasons.

I expect Jorah to survive, why cure him of greyscale to have him die now? Although he doesn't seem to have any real purpose on the show any more so maybe. Can't decide if Gendry coming back is because they forgot about him and just want to tie up the loose end by killing him or if he's got something more to do. Poor Thormund is a gonner though I think.

I definitely think we are supposed to think Sansa and Dany are in the wrong. I've hated Dany for years now, she's an absolute wagon. Her current obsession with everyone bending the knee is a sign they know she's a wagon though. And they've mirrored her behaviour with Cersei at times too.

The main culprits for spoiling these days are websites putting plot details in the headline for their recap posts. "Now that X is dead, what's next for Y?"

There's no way they don't know what they're doing. So cunty.

It's annoying me seeing the odd meme pop up on insta the day after GOT too.
