    That was really lame.

    The whole episode was filled with nothing, nothing in the story progressed.

    Normally this wouldnt be a big deal, but with 6 to go, im not sure wtf was the point.

    Honestly it feels like one week progressed in the GoT world, everyone from the north is still at Winterfell, Dany going to Dragonstone is no surprise.

    I get that its episode 1, but it really felt mehhh, the director was really meh on this one.

    Snow fucking p4p boss. Sansa again teasing the Littlefinger manipulation- potential rift, but I still think she's wise enough not to be fooled completely into screwing over Jon.

    Real solid episode in my opinion. Not one of the best, of course, but did what a season opener should do- set up the narrative for the rest of the season.

    Can't really think of a single scene that wasn't good. Loved The Hound BWB stuff, Arya opening was perfect, scene with Sheeren and co. was a good counteproint- Arya encounters Lannister men but sees that they are just rank and file and not evil just by virtue of their banner.

    Jaime and Eurone exchanges were solid.

    Sam gonna cure Friendstone.

    Edd- legit as hell.

    Looking forward to seeing where we go next.

    It's confirmed that he will return this season, although in which capacity I'm not sure. Probably finds the BoB at some point

    Exactly this. I think it was meant to underscore that even though we know the power wielders can be either merciful or brutal, the rank and file are often just people who have normal lives and have to fight for a side based on where they were born, etc. If Arya kills them- after them being nothing but kind to her- it might show that shes gone beyond the beyond.

    Podeswa has always been one of the weaker directors. Or maybe he gets the shittiest writing.

    Just rewatched the episode. I noticed how Jon talked about how traitors should be treated. Any chance ANYONE from ANY house might try to make Jon Snow sound like a traitor for "abandoning" the Knight's Watch? I'm pondering, it's an angle that could be used.

    Agreed with the first part but let's give him some time to adjust to the big leagues. Might have some octagon jitters, he's not whipping cans in WSOF anymore.

    Absolutely agree. He didn't say as much but I immediately assumed he meant to bring her Tyrion's head. Hope he and the Iron Cans get absolutely trounced by Yara/Theon, dragons and co. Complete doucher who thinks he's better than he is.

    Was def satisfied with this episode. First half hour was so much omg omg omg omg omg omg omg,i could barely stand it.

    *modasoka

    Eddison Tollet aint irish...e's...e's...a Valeman,is wot 'e is.

    He's been watchin the show like all of us!


    Where do whores go?

    That someone is Yohn Royce,the bannerman of House Aryn.

    Tormund cant live up to his name if he has no Giants to fight. He saw the earlier scene with the walkers and he was all
    <GOT2><GOT2><GOT2>


    Seeing Walder in the opening scene was sooooo LOLWUT? O YEA

    Sam the slayer's scenes were dope. I esp like the exchange he had with the the guy in the autopsy room. Friendstone is so deep in the friendzone that no light can reach it apparently.

    They gotta bring Gendry back at some point. He has to run into Arya at kings landing or somewhere along the way.

    hahah. my guess is he's just already resigned himself to death but is hoping that he can live to see Khaleesi take Westeros. Sam stealing texts and shit though probably going to find the cure to Greyscale. I thought Gilly and little Sam couldn't stay with him at the Citadel...
