Martin always says that his goal is achieve some bitter-sweet ending like LOTR - but with more blood and death I suppose.

Unfortunate, I was kind of hoping the Night King just wins...

Me too, so I think we will be very very disappointed.
Well, I could survive if Jon & Dany have a grisly death, yes, they can save the fucking world but, please, death has to come spiraling down over them.

Caught up, finally. Disliked episode 2 but liked 3 well enough. Pretty excited to see some real action in the next one.

Indeed.

I'm really looking forward to the Dondarrion, Hound, Snow et al. expedition beyond the wall hinted at in one of the teasers.

Episode 7 probably, haha.  I don't know though...

I have my doubts (no, I didn't look up any spoilers though) that the next episode will see any real pick-up in action though.  More pieces placed (instantaneously, of course), I'd think, Arya (getting to Winterfell), Hound (getting to the Wall), and Jamie (back to King's Landing).

Well, by any kind of seemingly standard studio logic - since they aren't using all that extra money on every episode - "mid-season" episode and the second last or last episode should be fucking huge...

(Please, HBO, don't get complacent. Martin has been an amazing screenwriter since the 90s and while he gave you a boost, you need to not fuck this up... for the sake of unborn SFF adaptations everywhere!)

Tbh, they already fucked it up long ago. Most people who just watch the TV series with no knowledge of the books already like it anyway. So, HBO can never lose the bulk of it's fan base, whatever they do.

Holy fuck!

Honestly, this has been one of my favorite episodes in a long time. Easily the best episode this season, probably one of the best episodes of GOT over the past couple seasons.

So many great character reunions a la TUC.

I won't spoil anything for any one but I will say Arya is a fucking BAMF and a scene with her and...

(click to show/hide)

Otherwise, Khaleesi!

Yeah saw it had leaked, also saw people saying it was a great episode. Also clicked that spoiler for no good reason either.

My own brain just sabotaging me with that click.

Littlefinger has no chance now, Bran is seemingly omniscient and once Arya finds out what he has been up to she'll just "fook him oop" to quote Conor McGregor lol.

I'll go watch the episode later.
