    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.
    All true, but I had hoped he'd still have some involvement. Not sure about that after watching this episode.

    GRRM doesn't write anything anymore the bloody workshy shit.

    Watching the episode again that Arya scene is even worse the second time. An all time low for the series.

    It has felt much more "positive" for about a season now, you can feel where he left the project IMO.

    Not that it has made it bad ofc, but the tone has changed a bit.

    Or, just throwing it out there, things are about to go horribly wrong.

    Euron has 1000 ships and Danny's fleet is in a harbour.

    Littlefinger is getting pissed off and he can actually take Winterfell for himself with his troops right now - or ride off to help Cersei vs the Dornish and so forth.

    Arya's going to be in danger in KL (wildfire explosions and Dragon Fire are pretty indiscriminate).


    You can't have a "OH MY GOD!" moment if there isn't something to cherish before hand.

    Oh, and ice giants are close by

    We can hope, I'm sick of people not crying and getting murdered ffs!

    Though I'd have to question how effective Eurons fleet is against Dragon fire, but I can't wait to find out
      Spoiler:
    Tbh, we're due a dead dragon. What if Eurons gift to Cersei is a dragons head?

    ^ could well be.

    He does have the magic horn. We saw him holding it last season, but no one's mentioned it on the show. Will be a bit of a cop out if they use it but...

    Drogon's gonna get it.

    That's not a good definition of chancer, it's more about sub-par tradesmen who blag their way onto jobs and do shitty work.

    I.... did they burn his body? It was Roose who was told of it, wasn't it? He doesn't know to burn them. If the ice king gets down to Winter... sorry WHEN the ice king gets down to winterfell, those... tens of thousands of bodies from Stannis and co... they're still there. No one survived to tell Roose to burn them.

    Not 'quite' Sand Snakes bad but I agree with the majority of what you are saying. Tis filler, that's all as an episode. Could do better.

    Loved the repeating scene with Sam but then again my humour goes that way, my bad.

    Ed scene wasnt bad because of Ed. It was bad because,
      Spoiler:
    as someone pointed out, not "realistic" compared to every other god damn time anyone has ever happened upon any squad of soldiers from any faction.
    So far it has always been a bunch of suspicious murderous bastards (more or less) and suddenly its a camp of boy scouts with manners? Fuck that!
    That said, it does only add to the "something really bad will happen" feeling for me.

    My Ed-theory before it has played out;
    They wont/cant play him out as a murderous rapist. He/record company has an image to protect.

    That said, it opens a few things;

    1. Lannister has only boys (and old men har har har) left. But on the other hand we've seen thats not quite true.
    2. On the other, other hand it could be that they left the youngins behind as "protectors" who doesnt necessarily need to be murderous bastards. But it helps.

    Queens present;
    Euron felt a bit "over the top" in his presentation but it sort of solidifies his character as rather insane (in a JD kind of way almost). His gift cant be anything less than a very high level player from the other factions, dead or alive (pref alive if I have to guess).

    Ed was shit because he added nothing to the scene and his big ugly mug was gurning away, slightly out of focus right in the middle of my TV for the whole fucking scene. "It's a new one" was one step too far.

    Almost ruined what was otherwise a great episode.

    Alright, I allow it; Please explain wtf the GoT level of hate of Ed comes from. What exactly has he done to deserve it? Honest question. I know of him but never given a single fuck.

    Who said anything about hating him? He's a bland, uninteresting pop musician with a huge fanbase. Doesn't mean we hate him. He served no purpose in the scene and it made it feel like the whole thing had just been shoved in to give him some screen time. He can't act, has no charisma and yet somehow ended up with more lines than most of the principal characters of a major television drama. He's recognisable and was clearly ed sheeran being ed sheeran in the middle of fucking westeros. Every shot was set up to have his face square in the middle of it. Just utterly broke the immersion of the scene.

    It's not the first cameo from a famous musician, but I'd challenge anyone to recall more than one or two of them without looking them up. The others were all far better done.

    Been a big goofy singer singing like the big goof he is and appearing in a scene for no reason other than being a big goof. He didn't shit up the scene alone but it was shit and he was a factor in it.

    Alright. I still dont get it, maybe I havent been exposed to him enough or something. Maybe I would react the same if it was a no good for nothing Idol winner from Sweden.
    I get the argument of him being in show just because of who he is which is just stupid.

    Back side of this is that rumor has it it all Aryas fault. Big fan, wanted to have him in the show for ages. We can only hope for gruesome death.
