    Oh, and that Roman fighting tactic used, the wall of shields and spears, the producers made great use of history in that situation.

    We kept exclaiming that if Wun Wun had any kind of weapon the tactic would be screwed. He didn't, though, so it was effective.

    The only problem was how predictable it all was. We knew everything that would happen.

    Ramsey got off light. Glad Sansa was the one to finish him off though...she deserved it.

    He was right. He is part of her now.

    My God, the Starks are the greatest argument in history against feudalism. Their ineptitude gets them killed, which is fine, but it gets everybody else killed too. They're what would happen if the Bushes and Kennedys intermarried.

    The giant should have squashed John and Sansa when he had the chance.

    So, next episode, I imagine we see an update from all of the storylines, with significant developments in most if not all of them.

    Dany sails for Westeros.
    Cersei's Trial
    Arya gets to Westeros/Winterfell
    Brienne encounters the Brotherhood
    Night's King reaches the Wall
    Bran and Benjen get south of the Wall
    Tower of Joy conclusion

    All are possibilities

    Is anyone else taking note of the "women's revolution" happening right now.

    In almost every corner of the map a woman is either in power or jostling for it.

    Dorne, Dany, Yara, Sansa, Cersei...

    Also, the last episode HAS to end with the whitewalkers either walking right through the wall or completely dismantling and crumbling it to the ground.

    Agree 100%. That will be quite the cliffhanger.

    Read a very interesting observation. The last time we saw the Brotherhood Without Banners, in like season 2 or 3, they settled their scores with combat, in fact, Sandor had to fight Beric and it was on screen. Now, this season, we have been told, by Beric and Thoros, that the Brotherhood strictly uses hanging, not combat, to execute their enemies. So, why the change of heart? Is it because the Brotherhood has a new leader, a leader that, in the books, has a preference for hanging?

    One of my favorite continuing themes, especially this season, is how all the Stark kids are all low-key privileged and terrible. They're the Michael Bluth of Westeros, not realizing they're just as insane as the rest.

    Cersei's trial is supposed to be the main event next week. This past episode was cool from a visual standpoint, but it was basically a Michael Bay movie. Lots of big budget effects, no story.

    The show runners have stated flat out that Lady Stoneheart is not making an appearance in any episode.

    While I do agree that we won't see her, just because they say she's not going to appear, doesn't mean she won't. They don't have a duty to not mislead and lie to people to keep plot points secret. I just though that this change of philosophy by the Brotherhood was an interesting observation that someone made.

    Ha, a Michael Bay movie. That is laughably inaccurate.

    Shh, leave him be. Everyone else liked the episode so he has to automatically dislike it for some inane reason. He can't help it.

    I don't know why, but the lack of any sort of Umber conspiracy (or involvement of the Manderlys) was kind of disappointing.

    At the end of the day, Smalljon really did **** over the Starks, Rickon in particular.

    Edit: In hindsight, nobody screwed over Rickon Stark more than Sansa. She's spent too much time with Ramsay and Littlefinger. She had every opportunity to impact Jon's planning and the negotiations with Ramsay by dropping the table-turning knowledge of the Vale helping them out. Maybe she's just that dumbfounded that Vale Ex Machina managed to take Moat Cailin and march all the way to Winterfell without anyone affiliated with the Boltons knowing?
