I am looking forward to it as well. I have pretty much forgotten what was happening last season. Knowing the HBO guys, there will probably throw in a twist or 2 to keep us on our toes.

After watching the first episode I thought.. "s*** this is pretty good". So then I didn't watch any more of it at all, and read all the books. Which are huge btw. Must have taken at least a year. If they were crap I would not have had the patience to read them. I avoided all spoilers and web crap.

Then watched the episodes over a couple weeks intensive style. Impressively made shows. Great casting.

I watch most of these

Ed Sheeran scene was a waste of space. Seriously added nothing, the song was s***a nd it was in the book. (i.e. he sung it s***)

The Rains Of Castamere kicked s*** through it. Even "It's Always Summer Under the Sea" the closing credits for s3e5 ...

Ravn0s and anyone else that thinks that was the best start of season is .

S4 I think might have been the best
S1, S2, S3 all significantly better.

Based on the Director's for this season.... we can only hope for 1 or 2 good episodes.

Pretty sure that scene was to teach Arya that most people are just normal folk getting swept up in the madness of the powerful and don't deserve her wrath.

The worst thing about GoT is all the actors getting cast in other s*** and ruining it. f*** Loras for ruining Iron Fist and the Inhumans looks like a steaming pile of s*** and it's probably all Ramsay's fault.

I had to look away during the scab cutting bit, I knew it was gonna be bad as soon as you see the picture in Sam's book of a dude getting his back sliced off :( Loved that scene transition at the end though, that was clever

Arya's bits are starting to feel a bit too fan-servicey though, meeting back up with hotpie, seeing her wolf again, I've gone from being really interested in seeing where her story goes to feeling like her scenes are a bit of a waste of screen time :(

Battle at the end was pretty cool though, Euron's crazy demon head gangplank thing that came down and mashed a guy made me laugh. Also worth it to see those annoying sisters get owned.

Dragonstone and Kings Landing aren't they far away from each other, but they were sailing south from Dragonstone anyway though and heading back to Dorne, so they'd be pretty much going past kings landing to get there, would be easy enough for Euron to intercept them. I was thinking more how the f*** did he know where they were? Especially at night too

I thought the Sam s***-pot montage was on of the best moments of any season so far.

Was sure Cersei's old mate was going to unveil something a little more amazing than a f***ing ballista. noone has ever tried to shoot down a f***ing dragon before? like that is some stroke of genius? seems kinda f***ing derp to me.

episode 3 was pretty good. I like the way Dany is managing to f*** up her invasion and get outplayed at every turn so far. keeping things spicy and hopefully take her arrogance down a notch. seems she needs Jon Snow way more than she could've thought.

The way this season has gone so far is whenever they show you someones plans they fall apart a few scenes later, so good bet that the ballista doesn't exactly win the day for ol' Cersei.

Nice to see Headly's body double getting another brief appearance this week.

Yeah, that is a good point. I would have imagined that there would have been a few of those around to fight the Targaryens and their dragons. Perhaps those were just standard ballistas and not old mate's specially crafted dragon killer ones.

@ Raven - That is an interesting thought, I remember back in season 2 or something when Danny visits the magical tower thing and meets those weird dudes who want to control her and her dragons. She gets a vision of the throne room in King's Landing where it's empty and there are holes in the walls and there is snow falling through. I don't remember much about it though. Maybe there is no happy ending.

Plot Device.

In the books Euron has something much, much more useful .. supposedly. We don't actually know if it works as the books haven't revealed that yet.
Except to use that something Euron has in the show, would mean including a bunch of arcs they have totally skipped. So I guess the Balista is the s*** version of what Euron supposedly has.

The f***ing White Walkers plod South, takes at least 6.5 seasons to get to the wall (if they get there this season..) ..

And Bran, who cant even f***ing walk, gets from the deep North, to the wall, to Winterfell .. in a strong winter (a white walker winter at that) ... in what ... an episode or two?

If a little kid sitting on a sled being pulled by a small (but lean) older kid, through extreme snowy weather, can make it that far so quickly what the hell are the white walkers doing, stopping for picnics? It's not like they need to sleep, or eat .. they just shamble 24/7.

If the White Walkers can't cross running water then they won't be walking around the Wall.

And the Wall is still there. If they can't go around, they need to go through the Wall. Which is magically warded against them.

They need a way to defeat the Wall. Which at present they obviously don't possess, so it doesn't really matter how slowly they travel. Maybe, in the meantime, they've just been roaming the north of the wall killing/turning anything alive.

Book readers have been given hints that there is a way to destroy the Wall. Mind you, that sub-plot doesn't exist in the tv show so there is obviously something else....

Either they'll walk around the wall or they'll get through it the same way they got to the Three-Eyed Raven - Bran has been marked by the Night King.

Here's a theory I heard and agree with. For Team Dani, the south is lost. The Unsullied are stranded as are the Dornish. The Lannisters are provisioned and fortified at Highgarden. The Iron Fleet control the seas. I reckon Dani and crew will sneak up north and hide behind the wall/close to it and let the White Walkers go to war with the Lannisters and their allies. Then when the time is right, swoop in and destroy the White Walkers with their dragon glass and dragon fire and either rout the remaining Lannisters or accept their surrender.

Also, since the starks are all happy family again who is littlefinger going to murder?

Arya, not sure why yet but he did see her fighting skills and knows she's got that shiny new dagger. So it might be he needs to wipe out this threat.

Or bran because he would know or will know that littlefinger betrayed their dad and possibly gave that knife to his wanna be cut throat.

Possibly both because Bran tells Arya what's up with littlefinger.

I googled this because wtf. Yeah it turns out he was lecturing Varys on Chaos.

Bran is odd, I get he is being consumed by his powers and forgetting who he is. But the old 3-eyed raven wasn't like Bran, he seemed to have a personality. It's Paul Atreides from Dune style omniscience, which means he sees possibilities but not events. I wonder then, does he seem a convergence of possibilities? A single event that all timelines lead to...

because currently for an all-seeing cripple he sure is doing jack s***.

FYI, the dagger is gonna be super important of course.

Or bran because he would know or will know that littlefinger betrayed their dad and possibly gave that knife to his wanna be cut throat.
I always thought this was funny because Eddard Stark was a f***ing idiot. Littlefinger advised him clearly to not be a dumbass and shut his mouth about the children being bastards. He had little choice, go against the lannisters and get smashed or screw over Eddard Stark, have him banished to the wall. He didn't foresee Joffrey killing Eddard and starting a revolt.

Littlefinger has a hardon for Stark girls, so imo he's actually one of the more loyal subjects.

Yeah this, it could be a female trait of the targaryens.

I loled at Jon checking her out. Damn, don't check your auntie out! Unless... the targys did marry their siblings. They probably marry their aunties too.

Yeah but it's Game of Thrones, so it'll be done more like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, where he's riding off in to the sunset slumped over on the dragon dead.

Also, how screwed is Cersei now? She's now lost everything she was going to use to repay the iron bank (you know what they say about putting all your eggs in one basket) AND she's just had her army wiped out. Now she's at the mercy of Euron and the Iron Bank, and I'm sure the other realms will see to revolt given she can't stop them.

She hasn't lost any of the gold that was to repay the debt to the Iron Bank.
Just before the final battle, when Tarly rode up to Jaime, he reported that the wagon with all the gold made it safely through the gate at the Red Keep in King's Landing.

The wagon train that Drogon burnt was full of captured food etc. So her armies (and people in KL) might starve but the debt to the Iron Bank is paid.

I think that was just the food that got destroyed, cos there was a comment at the start of the scene about how all the gold was already safe inside Kings Landing. Still, with no food, shes still pretty screwed.

I don't even think it was most of the army, I think they were with the gold and the lot that got burnt up had just fallen behind.

I'm wondering what will happen to Jamie as Tyrion should have seen the last minute save and considering his loyalty has been questioned a few times I wonder whether he will leave Bron to save him or get Danny's men to fish him out so he can be used as a bargaining chip.

I'm also thinking that the Arya/Big Lady spar might be foreshadowing for a Mountain/Arya face off.

Raven, the old dude that rides up to Jamie and Bronn says that the gold has made it through the gates at kings landing, so the gold is secure. What was attacked was the rear of the army, the stragglers, which the old man (cant remember his name) wanted to whip. Jamie didn't like that idea... oh how much he must regret not listening to experience.

That was interesting. Looks like old Sam is now the leader of house Tarley.

It seems a plot is afoot at Winterfell. Sansa wants to be Queen of the North or something. What did the message say? What is the significance?

Bit of a slow one, lot of character stuff and setup and building stuff up for the last few episodes of the season I guess. Kinda had to slow down a little after last week I guess.

I wish Littlefinger would get whats coming to him already, one way or the other. I'm getting sick of him always lurking and smirking

I feel like we are getting to the awkward stage where the slow build up of the white walkers that's been going on as an inevitable climax needs to take over from the game of thrones part that most of Westeros has been focused on.

I mean Danny went from BBQ'ing 2 dudes that had bad knees to agreeing to not immediately killing Cersei if she some how agrees to help fight the white walkers and then Cersei went from fighting to their deaths to maybe we can just talk things out? All in the one episode.

Oh s***. Rhaegar confirmed to be married to the stark girl. Oh s*** Jon is the rightful king.

It's fairly clear the writers of the show can't hold a candle to old GRRM. But they're Cersei is using it as a ploy. SHe's clearly on the losing side, with more time she can out maneuver her enemies

I feel things are moving along too quick now. Major plot point to major plot point in the blink of an eye. Some people probably like that but... it feels like I'm eating dessert every meal and I need some meat and veg. You can really tell they've run out of book and just hitting the highlights now to finish it up.

It's still good. But it's not quite as engrossing as it used to be.

Yeah, it does feel a bit like that, I'm wondering if its because of the shorter season they need to cram more in. Or yeah, maybe its just cos they're run out of book and they're not just as good at writing as GRRM

imo it feels quick because character location changes now occur within the same episode (sometimes multiple times) instead of over the course of multiple episodes. there's fewer characters now and most of them are sharing scenes together so there's not enough story filler to pad out the episodes and make the journey's seem longer.

For the curious. The video is passable. The audio is atrocious. Sounds like a microphone held up to a TV speaker or something. Not recommended.

The audio is a little off, in my version but its alright. There is another version with s*** audio apparently. If you want it, get the 1.92gb version.

Just finished watching it. That episode had interesting developments. I will not post spoilers until the usual monday afternoon normal release.

^ it's likely that ep6 airing was so unexpected that the audio was phone recorded instead of capturing and remuxing the audio chan from the digital source

Yeah nothing wrong with that version.

I won't post any spoilers but I can bearly believe what I saw, some really exciting moments undid the sense that the show would just drag on.
