she didn't burn castles and citizens, so she still took John's advice: do not melt people's homes. She took the fight to the army, and eradicated their supply. pretty badass, despite the Jack Bauer magic of moving an army of Dothraki across the continent with a few hours? march. fuck it. who cares?

anyhoo, I hope Bronn dies. He should have died, and it should have been obvious. I love that guy, but he needs to die. You don't drop your Judas coins in a very obvious way and survive the scripting. Perhaps he doesn't survive the scorching from saving Jamie...but it should have been more brutal, imo.
Yeah, this was already pointed out to me.

yup.

every moment of that was like: I know everything you have said and everything you have done. Little Finger was completely neutered so, it's kinda useless to keep that guy around at this point, imo. He really can't do anything, and same as moth others. Bran is now the Macguffin going forward.
Varys was completely neutered and we still have him around. Little Finger still has an ace up his sleeve. He makes long slow plans.

His long slow plans don't matter much if Bran knows about them even before Petyr does. The only ace he's holding is a largely intact army which at this stage of the game is very important. Sansa doesn't trust him, but needs him, so he's not going anywhere. Ultimately I can see Littlefinger being a pawn in a game being played by someone else. It would be fun to watch him be victim of a long con hatched by Sansa.

Going to the middle was a bad call, she could have wiped them all out from the side...it should have been a 2 min battle, and I would be all for that, instead, they lost quite a few people.
yes that, and she went after the convoy instead of the soldiers after her initial attack.

also, who was burned to death on horseback? Lord Randyll Tarly?

Littlefinger did mention he imagines all possible scenarios in his head so nothing takes him by surprise. We already know Bran can't see the future since he predicted Arya would go to King's Landing. I think maybe it was a mistake for Bran to let Littlefinger know of his Greensight, it just allows Littlefinger to take that into account and adjust. It's like telling a terrorist where we will be watching. Watching won't stop a terrorist, he will just be more careful and use a different tactic.

Or maybe I like Littlefinger so much, I give him too much credit.:)

But I guess Littlefinger doesn't know Bran can worg into humans, so that might catch him by suprise.

I have to admit the reaction to the episode was pretty hilarious

  • Oh shit Bronns going to die I hope he doesn't die!
  • Oh shit Jamie is going to die I hope he doesn't die!
  • Oh shit Bronns going kill Drogon I hope he doesn't kill Drogon!
  • Oh shit Drogon is going to kill Bronn I hope he doesn't kill Bronn!
  • Oh shit Danny is going to die. I hope she doesn't die!
  • Oh shit Drogon is going to kill Jaime I hope he's doesn't kill Jaimie!
  • Oh shit Jaime is going to get him self killed trying to kill Drogon. I hope he doesn't die!
  • No body dies.... On Game of Thrones..... What Trolls* :D
*Assuming Bronn and Jaime survive drowning

I think Bran can see the likeliest outcome with his greensight. Arya was torn and it was likely a coin toss going to Kings Landing or home until she made the decision.

Littlefinger on the other hand is probably very predictable, (always choosing to benefit himself), if one has all the information about a situation like Bran should.

10/10.

As epic as that battle was, my favorite part of the episode what Arya going all Red Viper on Brienne.
"Who taught you how to do that?"
"No one"
They're a pretty even match once Brienne adjusted her style.

It's good to see robo-Bran has learned to at least give a half hug.

the girl who played Daisy is a porn star. :eek:
she doesn't do anal, unlike shae. :(

she 1st appeared on s02e1, being welcomed by Ros at Littlefinger's brothel.

she was the prostitute hired by Tyrion along with Ros to entertain Joffry in his bedroom.
instead of sex, Joffrey had Ros whip Daisy on threat of crossbow.

NSFW:

Link with nipple licking, beaver-forward shot removed. Not just NSFW, NAFATOT.

That just means Arya can pretty much kill anybody since there is no adjusting to an assassin. Because you will already have your throat sliced open.

Arya vs the Mountain pls

Assuming it's possible for Zombie Mountain to "die". Would probably need to be completely dismembered or incinerated. Hound vs Zombie Mountain where the Hound pushes him into a giant furnace or something is what I'm hoping for.

many of you are forgetting that Joffery basically admitted to sending the assassin to kill bran saying he figured they would want to put him out of his misery. or something to that effect
That must be a book thing, they never said anything about it in the show. It's been one of those things that just fell to the side as the story moved forward.


In Jamie's defense it's not like he wanted to meet them in an open field. It really seemed that he had no idea they were anywhere close let alone about to be on top of them.

Yeah, the books discuss it at length with various POV characters putting things together so that there's no doubt who did it. The show just glossed over it, only a couple of subtle hints that would not mean anything unless you knew the storyline from the books.

I'll repeat it just in case you have the guy who said it blocked. Don't worry about all the blocked posts. It's just a general consensus that you're a walking sphincter.
