    To spoil oneself or not to, that is the question. Will watch it tonight if i can find a decent source.

    I did question myself just a little when realizing I was indeed laughing loudly

    at people dying. I decided I'm still ok with it.


    Speaking of fun, a bit of a warning, in case you are ok with massive amounts of blood and guts being spilled in GoT generally speaking but have a problem with other bodily fluids I would suggest being prepared for a quite funny but incredibly gross montage involving a certain maester and his daily tasks.

    I've watched kids thrown out a window. A pregnant lady stabbed. A child killing a paedophile with a knife in the eyes. A head explosion. Eating a raw (kinda beating) heart.

    I had to look away and was saying "euw euw euw" out loud. Very funny scene.

    A few people mentioned (and now I agree) if you close your eyes, it's like the into to Pink Floyds Money




    I give the episode 10/10. Best into episode to a season ever. Awesome opening scene. The White Walkers... eek. Yeah, I'm happy with it.

    And I didn't know what ed sheran looked like until today so I didn't know it was him.

    I actually thought it was a bit dull, just setup stuff. Like, it was serviceable but not a memorable episode really and it did little to advance the main story.

      Spoiler:
    I also thought that scene with Ed Sheeran sandwiched in for no reason was fucking awful, one of the most forced and unrealistic scenes in the show's history. It was Sand Snakes bad.

    It's an Arya scene. The point of the scene is to show she is heading south again and not north. That she runs in to Lannister men and considered murdering them all but then doesn't. It shows that she's not psychotic, just very... driven toward her goal. The scene also humanises some of the Lannister soldiers (we may see them on the receiving end of swords later this season). I don't think we've ever really seen how the average Lannister bannerman lives or is treated. It showed they're not all evil like Tywin or Cersei. It also shows that not everyone you come across in the forests is going to rape / murder you for no reason.

    It tells us Arya's next target - Cersei - and so within 10 seconds we know her arc this season. It also mirrors Jamie Lannister saying "whoever killed them is not our ally".

    I believe he had only 4 words, it wasn't his scene at all.

    Now I know it's him, him looking at the camera saying "it's a new song" is like "really? REALLY?" but since I didn't know it was him, it didn't register.

    Other than that 2.7 seconds of dialogue, what about the scene was forced or unrealistic?

    It just seemed like a setup that wouldn't happen. Arya probably wouldn't even stop, they wouldn't be so fucking chummy with her, she would have killed them all. It just didn't feel right on any level to me and the acting was also quite shit.

    Fair enough but it's an inversion of this scene:

    Arya and the Hound are mirrors of each other. And now he's set aside being a dick, and she's kinda taken it up

    Never heard "chancer" before.

    chancer
    British slang for a scheming opportunist. Usually, it means someone who acts "kind" and takes advantage of a situation and manipulates said individual(s), without their consent. And later exploits it for their own gain.
    Doesn't really fit, I'll just assume you meant cancer and go about my daily business.

    So they are all out of pens.

    Scene seemed fine to me, maybe the "kill the queen bit" was a bit shit, mostly due to delivery. Served its purpose in that it may start a new arc of character development for Arya.

    The way Sansa keeps shitting on Littlefinger with impunity seemed more problematic. At least Kit Harrington managed to put a bit of life into his parts.


    Overall a good setup episode without any real misssteps. Id like to have seen less shit-scrubbing off Sam and more how his relationship with Gilly (sp?) develops.

    Euron and Cersei were the high points probably, closely followed by Clegane.

      Spoiler:
    Everything so far also seems to line up with some old leaks, so we have something to look forward to.
      Spoiler:
    Jon boinking his aunt Daenerys in the last episode

    I fucking loved Euron, he is rapidly moving into the favorite character list.
    Clegane part was really good, prob the best bit.

    Keep say it, but this was my favorite episode sofar!

  18. #8198
    I liked the Arya scene, showed a bit of self-doubt in her about how to approach things. Also I don't know who the fuck Ed Sherran is so I don't care about "muh immersion".

    I also like Euron because he's a different kind of bad guy, one I don't want to see die. Joffrey, Ramsey, etc were fun to watch but I couldn't wait for them to be offed. Euron is just as despicable but I'm not rooting for his death, at least not yet.

    On the one hand this was a very nice episode to watch. Sam bit was brilliant and disgusting.

    On the other hand nothing surprising happened and all the writing seemed a bit too... neat. Everything is going well for the heroes we're rooting for and the bad guys are getting their just rewards? Has someone secretly killed off GRRM?

    GRRM isn't writing this, so you are probably more correct than you thought. This isn't actually based on any of his writing at all, it's entirely for the show now.

    He has already said the books might actually be different.
