    Not gonna lie. The name of the 10th episode made me laugh.

    It turns out that with HBO's streaming service you can get the current day's episode prior to its broadcast time on the channel proper. So I just finished it now. That was a good chase scene, and the Hound made for good stuff, too. I like the style of his killings.

    Arya's trip to Braavos was basically to get some training and waste time like Bran's.

    Probably a leftover from Martin's original script with the 5 year gap after the War of Five Kings.

    Also: interesting offscreen fights this week.

    Must've saved on the fight choreography for next week.

    Did anyone else get the impression from Arya's last scene, and the look, and smirk, on Jaqen's face that this was his goal the whole time? What is the Faceless Men's goal here? If they were trying to train Arya and send her back to the North of Westeros, does that mean something? Do the Faceless Men know about the White Walkers, and is Arya important in some way?

    I definitely get the feeling that the faceless men were hoping Arya would survive the other girl's attacks. Not sure about the attitude of the rest, if the guy was just proud of her development and her choosing to be her own person?

    I got the impression it was his plan. I didn't think about the idea that it was their geopolitical goal for her to go back home and Be Part Of The Solution (although now you say it I like it as fitting into the show's political arcs overdetermining all the characters' actions). I thought of it more personally: Arya is not faceless, she is Arya, that is her correct place in the world. Whereas The Running Girl (and man that was a cool chase) is the perfect machine who simply executes code, Arya is a human being who weighs merits and deals in grey areas. The world needs both, but the latter are vanishingly rare, so we don't want to waste one.

    That was a terrific episode. Just the right balance of action, ideas, and gratuitous violence. All it was missing was boobies.

    Calling it now: episode 10 concludes with Cersei saying "Burn them all" as Qyburn sets off the Wildfyre. Fade to black. Credits.

    I think it ends with either the Nights King walking through the tunnel at Castle Black, or with the wall collapsing.

    I'm guessing we're going to see the Knights of the vale on Sunday. That would be bad if that battle concludes as the Night King watches only to lift his hands.

    Totally going to happen. He's going to kill about 200 of Ramsey's men first though.

    No, he'll kill many more than 200. A few might even flee upon seeing him.

    Well, Ramsay only needs 20 good men anyway. Hopefully Wun Wun concentrates on those.

    I really thought he would receive the Theon No-Joy before his final ending. I guess that just goes to show one house is nobler than the other.

    Great episode.
