With the officially announced 15 episodes until the series finale, there's not much time remaining for some of these subplots to play out.

Well, between white walkers and dragons...lots of people can die quickly, so that would end a lot of story lines...

Anybody been watching the recent Christmas-New Years marathon?  I watched the latter episodes from last year just to remind myself what happened...left off with Varyis chatting up Dorne & Highgarden...Mother of Dragons sailing the Narrow Sea...

I'm trying to remember who was who in the Bran three-eyed dreamwalk...when young Ned needed an assist slaying...who the heck was that guy?!  That was his pretty sister and young John Snow, right?  But who was the dude that got slayed?

Anyway...Jan 15th and it fires up.  I wanna see some dragons getting fed!  King's Landing should be an easier sacking now that Queen Batshyt Crazy wasted the good stuff on the High Sparrow and assembled court crawlers!

Idiot Lannister's and their vassals got heap a big trouble coming...and everybody has them White Walker clowns to deal with...kinda like an army of progs who won't die...that's just effing annoying as all Hell!!!

That was Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning.  He was a member of the King's Guard serving the Mad King, and had been posted as a guard over Lyana Stark by the Mad King's son, Prince Rhaegar (Lyana's secret lover, and thus the father of Jon Snow).

So, I guess that Sword of the Morning was brought back to Castle Starfall (which I don't recall mentioned anywhere in the HBO series) and awaits a new owner from House Dayne (also don't recall mentioned in current times)...but Wikia link has that in Dorne...so those crazy savage chicks who offed their kin inherited what was once the House of Dayne?  Never heard Dorne's palace referred to as Starfall that I recall either.



So, both John Snow and the Mother of Dragons are the only direct claimants to the Iron Throne then with any legitimacy...I guess it would suck to see those two come to blows, but it seems true to the original authors bent to make things as awful as possible.

Bueller?  Anyone?

What a kick ass way to start the season!  As well as the most depressing segment in the show's history.  If you think your job sucks, just watch poor Samwell.   ::hysterical::

I thought it a bit of cinematic brilliance to speed up the sequence!   ::hysterical::

I remember it being done in other movie/shows...it really worked in this case...talk about starting at the bottom!   ::puke::

And now we know where Ser Jorah ended up.

And I like the little slaughterfest the young Stark liquidator is on. 

And with the Mother of Dragons back home things should start to pick up.   ::whoohoo::

My wife and I were laughing out loud at that sequence. We both commented that it was the funniest moment on that show by far.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."
