Did they just completely wipe out two more families, yesterday?  And right before what could have been a hawt scene.   ::pullhair::

Counting the Boltons from Episode 1, they're really cutting the cast, this season.

Hey, when things go dark...chamberpots will come back...

   One word:  OUTHOUSE

For you maybe...your better half will be like "...and take this with you and empty it for me honeybunch!"...

  Did you meet her? Cause her idea of ruffing it is B/W t.v.

Well the dyke assassin brood of Dorne...not sure how much I'll miss that, or the dyke wannabe queen of of the Ironborn...probably miss less...and Theon/Reek...useless...

All in all perhaps no great loss...and it makes an alliance between Mother of Dragons and the King of the North even more imperative.

What disappointed me the most was Arya abandoning her List and turning tail for home!  WTF?!   ::cussing::

I think Theon still lives. Actually, there are several people in that battle who they didn't actually show them die.

I was sad that Nymeria bailed on Arya. Actually, the whole Dire Wolves story arc could've been so much cooler; so much more full of the fantasy genre mystique. But that's not Martin's way I guess. The world he created is dominated by human machinations, and what fantasy elements exist are underplayed, when comparing to authors like Tolkien, Jordan, Donaldson, Goodkind, etc.

Still, something tells me Nymeria will be back when it matters most.

I think Nymeria is taking orders from a higher power that has three eyes...

Reek survived...in a show where people are slaughtered wholesale...that weasel lives...irony GOT version, eh?

And the bitch queen sacrifices an empty castle to plunder another...there aren't many chess pieces left on this board.

Yep, Reek lives, and so does his sister.

Is it me or does anyone else feeling a little bit of a letdown after such a bang up start?  Maybe it's because Martin has given up on writing the story and it's the TV guys now doing the writing.

Rhaegar Targaryan, Daenarys's oldest brother was Snow's father. Lyanna Stark - Ned's sister - was Snow's mother. Lyanna bound Ned to a deathbed oath to protect Snow from Robert Baratheon, so Ned took Snow as his own bastard.

   Perfect were on the same page but what happened to King Roberts bastard son the blacksmith? He hasn't been seen in a while. I may have missed something.  And doesn't that put Snow in line for the throne?

Gendry... Melisandre used his blood to perform the ritual, and then imprisoned him. Ser Davos let him escape in a rowboat, and he hasn't been seen since. If he still lives, he is the last known Baratheon.

If the Targaryan lineage is what it appears to be (as I described above), then Jon Snow is Danaerys's half-nephew. Not sure where that places him in line for the throne. She is the daughter of the Mad King. Snow is the bastard grandson.

Gendry is with Snow now.  Is Arya being set up by Little Finger?  With people good and bad getting dispatched all the time...how does that worm still breath?

And did anybody else catch that blurb by Samwell's sweetie pie reading from some Maester book about a rumor or legend of Rheagar having a bastard son?  Interesting that a) it came up again...maybe word got back from fans that there was some general confusion to clear up and b) that it didn't trigger a response from Samwell who is naturally fixated on the lack of urgency by the Grand Maester and his cronies about the White Walker threat.

Anyway...

These outreach to the Psycho Queen and capturing a zombie seems pointless to me, but...whatever...

Another major piece of the puzzle that is Jon Snow's parentage was just unveiled on "Game of Thrones."

While reading old texts with Gilly, Sam Tarly learned that Rhaegar Targaryen — Jon's father— had his marriage to Elia Martell annulled.

The sixth season finale showed  Bran's flashback to the Tower of Joy, where Lyanna Stark lay dying in a bed of blood after giving birth to Jon. We didn't see Rhaegar there, nor was there any mention of him, but book readers have long assumed Rhaegar was Jon's father. HBO even confirmed the theory when they released an infographic in the week after the Tower of Joy scene aired.

And now we know that Jon isn't just a bastard born from a secret love affair between Lyanna and Rhaegar — he's likely their legitimate child and could now surpass Daenerys when it comes to the Iron Throne's Targaryen successor

Yup, Snow is no bastard. He's the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne.

So...Mother of Dragon's named one of her fire-spewing children after the father of the man she wants to "bend the knee" before her, eh?

There's irony running all over each other in this thing!  Won't that scorch some bottoms when it is revealed!

Works for me...let's see what happens  ::popcorn::

OK, maybe it was just me...but when in the previous episode when the ghouls were toting chains I literally groaned "you have got to be sh*tting me?!"...of all the outrageous twists and turns and slaying and betrayals...none of that bothered/surprised me...turning a dragon?  Yeah, that pees me off...and now this last episode confirms how bad that is...well, I guess they want some dragon on dragon death matches to wrap things up, eh?

But at least there was the rich reward of seeing the Stark girls (with Bran's timely input) dispatch that snake Little Finger...I liked that whole sequence very much.

And yeah, the Bitch Queen lying her ass off...wonder if Kingslayer has had enough of that batshyt crazy twit?

And poor Bran...his timing is off on telling John who he really is...since he has now bedded his...Aunt?

 ::facepalm::

Well, what is done is done...you can unscrew a lightbulb, but...people are something else!



On a looking ahead note...is the rumor that it may take a couple years of work before airing the final season a load of BS?
