    worth the wait that

    Of the many fantastic bits, my favourite was that scene where Sam found out his brother had been executed along with his dad. I've always loved the Aemon / Jon Snow scene in the first series where Aemon reveals who he is whilst laughing at the idiocy of the youth but seeing Sam, who has for too long been a joke character, absolutely switch to complete and utter deserved rage at someone was great.

    ferrelhadley These violent delights have violent ends.

    solid human focused episode. Huge amount to pick from with Arya meeting Aeigon T/The Hound/Gendry, Aeigon meeting Sansa/Arya/Sam, Jaime and Bran, Brons dilemma, Yara and Theon etc
    The plus side to insomnia. Up and watched before anyone can spoiler it.

    Scene setting episode, but enjoyable. Really enjoy Bran's relentless determination to make everyone as uncomfortable as possible, and all the nods to the start of the series.

    Did we see Cersei inadvertently deliver her own method of death to her brothers?

    Cersei is drinking again, and didn't seem to have a bump. Where's the baby/pregnancy?

    Also...

    ...we saw everyone except Melisande, Meera, Gilly, Little Sam, and Brienne. Assuming G&S are simply by a Winterefell fire, where are the others?

    I guess there was too much to cram in and Jaime arrived too late for them to justify Brienne being in it. Melisandre says she can't go back but surely still has some part to play. Has Meera simply fucked off in a huff to the Reed hearth just because Aspie Bran didn't say thanks for the big shift she put in?

    Don't think there were any more living omissions not shown or not mentioned.

    I thought that the look when Euron was leaving might mean a/ she lied to Jaime but b/ she'll try to get pregnant by Euron and pass it off as Jaime's.

    Brienne was there in the background at Winterfell when everyone arrived.

    Pretty solid start. I am surprised at
    nobody significant
    dying though.

    Someone's noticed something about the very first episode.

    From 4.00. Look who Robert touches

    Ned (hug) - beheaded
    Cat (hug) - throat cut
    Rickon (hair tousle) - shot with arrow
    Robb (handshake) - stabbed

    and talks to

    Sansa ("you're pretty") - is used as a plaything by Joffrey and Ramsey
    Arya ("What's your name?") - becomes no-one
    Bran "You'll be a soldier") - is crippled and becomes pretty much opposite of a soldier

    I liked it, anyway

    Right, that was good.

    Loved The Wall being in the credits all smashed.
    "What do Dragons eat?"

    Jon Snow looked a bit like Batman on that Dragon.

    Gendry and Arya flirting? And she wants a special weapon eh?

    Sansa is smart as fuck, it's now official.

    Although it was sad when Sam found out about his dad...it was quite funny when they followed it up with his brother, have to be honest.

    Child scene...FUCK!

    whats with the spoiler tags?

    The scene with the dragon ride was pretty grim. Like something from a kids' film.
    How did Theon find his sister in a boat that all look a like?

    That crossbow Kyburn gives to Bronn...it's the one Tyrion killed Tywin with.

    I wish every episode was like this, harked back to some really good episodes earlier in the series. Dreading the 90 minute CGI battle yawn a thon.

    Why is it? I stayed up to watch it, plenty of posters here won't have done, so before Monday evening I think it's good manners not to give out info if it can be avoided with spoiler quotes

    I'm kind of with you, in that the human drama side of GoT has always been what made it stand out, with tits 'n' dragons being a pleasing distraction. But on the other hand, I kind of feel cheated that there is so much human drama that needs to be done in the remaining 5 or 6 episodes and they seem to be going really slowly with it.

    If they manage to make the final battle a bit special, something that will stand out beyond whatever the latest Marvel CGI same-shit-different-hero style thing (and they've kind of said that the final battle will be something pretty memorable and different), then that would be nice. But, yeah, it's so hard to do anything that feels different these days because all the CGI action blockbusters feel so interchangeable. The last one I remember being impressed by was Dr Strange, just coz it did feel completely different to the usual stuff. But really, that was just Inception amped up to the max, so also not particularly original.

    Anyway, I'm rambling. The point is, there has to be a big battle, and let's hope that they do manage to make it a bit special.

    I think were safe now as they'll he watching it. Anyway, i thought the etiquette these days is don't look at this thread on a Monday if you haven't seen the new episode.
    Anyway, that was fun. I still hope everyone will die though.

    Ooh that was good.

    Still think there's an outside chance that The Dead will triumph. Night King to freeze the Iron Throne then smash fuck out of it.
