Is that a cardigan he's wearing, or a shower mat.

I seriously doubt we'll see Jaqen again lads, what would be the point of mixing him in with the main storyline at this late stage.

Unless it turns out he was Syrio Forel all along, as per the theory, but again it would add another needless thread.

not now. My theory, Arya will be gone from Winterfell by the time Jon gets back because her list still has names. They wont see each other. Until Arya arrives back after killing Cersei and/or others on her list in the last episode. She'll have prayed to the Many Face god at some stage to kill someone on her list.

She then arrives in Winterfell, Jon sees her (the war against the Nights King is over at this stage), they're reunited. They embrace, blam - Jon stabs Arya. Peels his face off, its Jaqen. Arya owed a life to the many face god.

Tyrion would be tragic but they're not afraid of throwing curve balls.

That wouldn't be much of a curveball at this stage. Got to think pretty much anyone who isn't Dany is expendable now.

I think Dany will get the bull...er....arrow before the show is over.
If she takes over then all thisgoes down again when she dies cos she cant have kids. I think John will take the throne

I dont think Jon will anyway, he might finish King in the North (if he is alive) but the whole theme of the show is how history repeats itself.

Even this series Jon, Dany, Cersei, Sansa, Tyrion are constantly being reminded of the mistakes their parents made - Jon not to go south, Dany not to go mad or appear cruel, Cersei to repay her debts etc.

Davos is the best. Everyone else is expendable. Just let Davos survive.

Never got all the love for Bronn as a character. There's very little to him.
And i've always found it hard to buy into the notion of Robsonandjerome as a stone cold killer sellsword.
Even in last nights episode, watching him prance around with the sword.... hopeless.
I think it's because he has an ounce of personality and he's funny. So many of the characters are dry shites.

watched it super early this morning, so spoilers if you hop in early
Putting together a merry band of misfits :D fitting em all in.

and Gendry :D

Dany seemed very quick to just take the scroll from Brann to change her mind about her priorities.

Its uncomfortably fast tbh but still enjoying it nevertheless. I'm re-watching the series with my missus as she's never seen it and it's like 2 different shows.

So here's an idea... why not go up north with a dragon and fish a white walker out instead of throwing 7 bodies, including your fucking king, at it?

I'm loving the faster pace, no more fucking around on shite like Grey Worm and Missandei telling jokes. Only 8 episodes left so they need to get a move on.

The lads are going to get their asses kicked next week aren't they? Such a ridiculous plan but it's brought some great characters together so feck it. There's surely a couple at least not coming back. Beric and Thoros would be the most likely I'd imagine.

Next weeks is 70 minutes right?

I think they might stretch this out till the end of the season. Should be a good few laughs with the hound and Thormund and Beric altogehter now anyway

I dont see why they dont just get Bran to tell Cersei some secret noone else knows and then be like "yeah yer man is coming"

Im certain that them bringing a Wight south of the wall on purpose is what will break the spell and allow the walkers to pass the wall as well. In Season 1, when they brought the 2 dead lads to Castle Black and they tried to kill Mormont, they didnt do so knowingly.

Its like inviting a vampire into yer gaf isnt 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.

I think it was the note that Cersei made Sansa send to Winterfell after they killed Ned. Not sure

Saw something earlier in the season about Littlefinger looking shifty after someone mentioned that the maester kept all scrolls sent by ravens to Winterfell. they thought it could fuck him up over the scroll from the first episdode of season 1, when Lysa sent the scroll to Catelyn about Jon Arryn being dead
