The one thing that's *possible* is that Jaqen and Syrio are either the same person or at least know each other. So perhaps Jaqen wasn't in that wagon heading to the Wall by accident and was there to keep an eye on Arya based on their previous relationship. But even that theory is full of holes.

One of the biggest plot holes in the entire series is how Jaqen got worked into the storyline. There's no reason for him to be there, no reason for him to be in the dungeon, no reason for him to be sent to the Wall, no reason for him to be in chains in the wagon. Nothing about where he came from or how he got introduced makes any sense at all.
people call me crazy for thinking Syrio = Jaqen. I've been saying it all along.

My day will come!

Syrio definitely got away from Trant. Anyone that believe otherwise is a moron. But the idea of Syrio being a Faceless Man is still a big leap of logic. WTF would a Faceless Man be doing giving fencing lessons to a little girl? At that point she couldn't possibly be on their radar. .
You just wondered why the fuck Jaqen (a faceless man) would be in a prison cart heading towards King's Landing--bit plot hole, apparently, and yet you question why a faceless man would arrange to be commissioned as a personal instructor to a daughter of the King in the North, within striking distance of one of the major powers in the world?

hmm.

What are you, a kid from the 80's? It's a good show to watch with or without any nudity. If that's all you care about, there's this thing called the internet...
He's not Jedi: He's asking if it is actually good despite the boobies. Someone like Jedi only wants to watch a show if it has boobies.

It's an honest question: "Am I going to be roped into watching some highly-rated bullshit just because a bunch of nerds on the internet fantasize about boobies they will never see?"

Is anyone hoping that Theon only faked being scared and jumped overboard so he can live to fight another day? He's one of my favorite characters (I've got a cat named Theon Greykitty) and I hope GRRM redeems him. If he actually did go all Reek and jumped ship out of cowardice, well, maybe his sister Yara will live to end him.

Theon truly is dickless, bro. Sorry for you and your kitty. :(

If that's the question the answer is - this is some of the best TV during a time of fantastic TV.

I think dragons completely negate the advantage of naval power. As we saw last season 3 dragons can decimate an entire fleet quickly.

It was a really bad move for her to send her fleets out without her dragons to escort them. The dragons would have been able to spot and destroy any approaching ships long before they got close enough to harm her fleet.
how did yara get caught by surprise by euron's fleet is the question.

it seems impossible, kinda like a US Navy destroyer not seeing something as big as a cargo ship ramming it.
oh wait...

That was his only move. If he advanced, Yara would have had her throat cut, and he'd most likely be killed too. I'm guessing strategic retreat.

No. It seems impossible, kind of like a US Navy destroyer being surrounded by hundreds of ships and claiming to have never seen any of them.

Is Gendry still rowing?
He's on the couch with Huell.

Gendry is going to be back though. Hot Pie made it okay, so will Gendry. We'll see him later this season.

I'm still hoping to find out what happened to Chuck Cunningham, Richie's older brother. He went upstairs in season 1 and hasn't been seen since.

I'm guessing the fleet split with one part taking the unsullied, one part going to Dorne and the rest holding Dothraki. Unless of course Dragonstone has a quantum barraks that can hold 40k Dothraki and their horses which is possible due to TV show.

Daenarys landed in Dragonstone and with a pile of gold in her coffers, immediately upgraded the keep straight through 3 technology eras and maxed the barracks with microtechnology, synthetics, and future alloys research.

Sounds reasonable to me.
