    If I were him, I'd have had a big *** smirk as I turned to look at the Night King, knowing he was effed in a few seconds.
    Yes, but presumably, all the other 3-eyed Ravens that the Night King had killed, had seen how it happened and took steps to prevent it. The one Bran met being the one we saw.

    Still didn't work out so well for them.

    Unless, as Bran told Theon, everything he had done to this point had brought him to this place and time. So, maybe the other 3-eyed Ravens were just playing the long game until Bran came along.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 6: Lions and Wolves and Sand Snakes, oh my!

    So, my wild-azz guesses as to what happens.

    Cersei does finally kill Jaime. He dies in Brienne's arms. Freeing her up for Tormund's love.

    Bron kills Cersei with the crossbow meant for Tyrion and Jaime.

    The Hound vs The Mountain in an epic death match.

    Jon and Dany are both killed, leaving Gendry, the surviving heir to Robert Baratheon, to take the throne. With his queen Arya by his side. Fulfilling both Ned and Robert's dream from season 1 of uniting their houses in marriage. Tyrion is hand of the King.


    Sansa stays Queen of the north, where Podrick introduces her to his Magic Caulk.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

    For the second time in four weeks, Amazon Germany released the new episode 12 hours early.

    How can you never scout ahead when you're the only air power on the planet? Cersei deserves it because everyone else is stupid.

    Yeah Iíve seen the outsmarted by Cersei and Euron move enough now. Itís been a trick played out so many freaking times itís become maddening how bad Jon and Dany are at carrying out war and battle tactics.

    So with where the scorpions are mounted, they can't shoot toward the stern. Just, like, fly around and come up behind them.

    In general I thought that episode was a mess. It was pretty clear that it was going to be a "breather" episode between the two big battle episodes of last week and next week (same director for both those episodes and some prior battles). But still.

    Bronn just randomly shows up at Winterfell? It takes everyone else weeks to get from Kings Landing to Winterfell, yet he shows up drunk, spends two minutes threatening Tyrion and Jaime, then heads back? W T F?

    Then, as others have alluded to, the confrontation at the end was stupid. How do you get ambushed with dragons? So if you show up with only one dragon still alive and maybe 500 unsullied, Cersei is just going to fold up her tent and go home? Plus, the whole Tyrion thing of trusting that Cersei won't kill him so he just walks up to talk to her is getting old. Didn't he just learn that Bronn has been sent to kill him and that he avoided that fate only due to Bronn's greed?

    I honestly sat there last night hoping they'd stick a thousand arrows in Tyrion, even though he is one of my favorite characters, just because of the stupidity of that whole scene.

    It was like the writers and directors sat around and decided that they had to do the funeral, they had to bring a completion to the two new love stories (Gendry/Arya and Jaime/Brienne) to get those wrapped up before the end, but then ran out of ideas before the next big battle.

    They'd better do something in the last two episodes to bring some context and meaning to last night's mess or it was a waste of an hour and a half.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Ran out of ideas? Hardly. The core storyline was Snow/Dany and Sansa going full Little Finger. Which IMO was worse case scenario. I don't like where any of it is going.

    As for the stupidity of the naval battle. The only thing that explains it is the cockiness of Tyrion and Dany with the dragons. Last time the dragons weren't there. They probably didn't know they had found a way to mass produce the scorpions and mount them on ships.

    I don't think there were a lack of ideas. I think there were too many bad ones. Here's hoping Arya saves the day again cause her and Bran are all that's left that has any integrity. Hell, they even sent Ghost packing.

    Tyrion dying at the end for his military stupidity would have been fitting. He's not clever. He stopped being clever the minute he put an arrow through daddy.

    Bronn left for Winterfell in the very first episode of the season. We don't really know how long his journey was, and his appearance felt entirely within the context of the character.

    Tyrion's act outside of King's Landing was just to build tension because if he dies it won't be until the final episode.

    The Hound and Jon are the only other fighters holding to character. After that, you can really tell that new people are writing the lines for characters with large quantities of dialog.

    I agree about 90%. I won't call it a waste -- we needed a breather / final arc build episode. You can't just have crescendo after crescendo, that gets boring (cough Avengers cough).

    There was an atypical amount of stupid in that episode, and I too wanted Tyrion to pay for the patent stupidities of the episode by being turned into a pin cushion. Though I did like Sansa in the episode, and Arya, and it takes something for me to say anything nice about a Stark.

    Agree on both points, however, it would have been better at this point just to have killed him now. The scene would have had a purpose then.

    He got stupid when he fell in love with Dany, as, evidently, does everyone.
