    Here's what Kep said in the spoiler.

    Cersie has now merged completely with Claire Underwood.

    Jon Snow is still a drip. I don't buy any chemistry between him and Daenerys. She would eat him alive.

    When Arya saw the dragons it was the only time has actually been impressed n the run of the show. That was a very good moment.

    Sansa had a really good point: the f-ck is she going to feed all the Unsullied and Dothraki, not to mentions dragons that clear an entire pasture with every meal?

    When Arya saw the dragons it was the only time she has ever been impressed. That was my favorite moment.

    Sansa had a really good point: the f-ck is she going to feed all the Unsullied and Dothraki, not to mention dragons that clear an entire pasture with every meal, in the middle of Winter in a war-ravaged minor province that was none too rich to begin with?

    In a show that includes dragons, zombies (including dragon zombies), giving birth to murderous apparitions, bringing dead people back to life and a thousand foot high thousand mile long wall of snow and ice, you're bitter we've been asked to take a leap of faith on their food supply?
    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.

    The good news is that I doubt it will be that long before they meet in battle so it shouldn't be a problem.

    One thing I had a problem with was when Sam told Jon about Dany killing his family he expressed shock and says, "She didn't tell you?" When, exactly, would she have mentioned this to him? In her grand plan his House was a minor annoyance, not a player like the Lannisters, Starks or even Tyrells. It isn't like she's going to give Jon a roll call of all the people Drogon burned alive.

    I'm not bitter, I'm logistically irritated.

    The hallmark of good fantasy is you make something make believe -- magic, dragons, god -- real, but then the rest of the world operates along the same mundane rules.

    If it isn't directly brought up by the show itself, it is easier to ignore.

    And it's not like Jon would have said "Samwell Tarly" when speaking with Dany. For all intents and purposes, they gave up their family affiliations until death. He's now just Samwell.

    And the mundane rules of the real world are usually what cause the little problems that hinder solving the BIG THING within the story.

    I don't foresee starvation of the armies being much of a plot point going forward. In my opinion, Sansa's food comment was intended as part of her expression of bitterness directed to Dany.

    Oh, definitely. Also to remind us that she is her own woman, now. As she said at some point, she's a slow learner... but she learns. She's Catelyn 2.0.

    I agree with St. Clown's comment but I also think the way Tyrion talks about the Tarly family in that scene, it seems like the Tarly clan is a big deal but the show has never really given it's due? Like until recently we didn't care about Greyjoys but now they're a big deal...idk. It seems like someone would have brought up the destruction of an "important" family even if it was just Tyrion dropping it to Snow in conversation?

    I suspect the food issues will be fixed by half the army dying in two weeks.

    The families were on a tiered system below the King. Tier 1 - wardens of the area. Tier 2 - families like Karstarks in the North, seen as influential in the region, but serve the wardens. Tier 3 - they own land, but are seen as relatively poor and insignificant except when otherwise needed. The Tarlys were committed to High Garden, so they struck me as a Tier 2 family.
