Can i say how much i fucking love Arya?  And that was the most gratuitous cameo ever

A few things: 1. The writing and plot have absolutely suffered since Season Five. This is partly because Martin had to step back from helping them write scripts so he could focus on other project

Lyanna Mormont is still badass.  I want to be here when I grow up.

I am so excited for this season!!! I think I am going to spend this month and half wait on re-watching the last 6 seasons. Every time I re-watch the series I notice new things I missed the first time. 

I also need to read the books, I need to get on that.

I've started the books 3 times but I just can't get into them. I'll stick with the show until he finally finishes the series, then read everything all at once.

Yeah, winter came for House Frey.  And kicked its fucking ass. 

Looks like the janitors/undertakers/etc are gonna be putting in a bit of overtime at the Twins cleaning up that mess.

I ... didn't love it. I mean, I loved it. But I thought the Arya is Walder Frey cold open was sort of cheesy and unbelievable. I'm not sure how the mechanics of the faceless men work anymore - does the face adjust height and voice now too? I don't think it did in the past. I'm pretty sure it didn't in the books, but it's been a long time since I read AFFC & ADWD. 

The guy painting the floor and Cersei walking over the possibly wet paint took me out of the show as well. Plus I was sort of bored by her and her wig last night. 

I really enjoyed Brienne and Tormund's scene together. 

I disliked Sansa and Jon fighting, although I actually kind of liked how it shows that Sansa has been influenced by the politics of the South while Jon is staying true to the North; I thought she shouldn't have questioned him publicly like she did. Reminded me of the time Jorah and Barristan questioned Dany and she laid into them. 

I was so curious as to what Sam is up to and excited to see Jim Broadbent aka Slughorn aka Bridget Jones' Dad, aka guy in everything. Then we got a montage that lasted way to long and ended with me gagging and closing my eyes, telling the SO to tell me when I could look again. 

Dany's arrival was underwhelming because both me and the SO don't really understand why she would care about a place she's only heard about and figured her feelings weren't really genuine. I tried to explain it away with magic and that's kind of dumb too.

As I recall the books the faceless men did use magic to change their appearance rather than taking on someone's physical face.  I seem to recall that Jaquen's voice also changed when he spoke while disguised.

The end of season 6 left the impression that Dany's forces were going to immediately cut a swath towards the Iron Throne upon landing on Westeros.  It makes sense though that she would establish a beachhead on Westeros in order to prepare her forces to head north.

I also took it as a "we finally made it across the sea" after all those years planning it, by herself and her brother talking about it, kind of a combo of that. 

I also agree that Sansa shouldn't have questioned him in front of everyone, but as someone else said on another forum "it gives Jon the opportunity to give a point-by-point explanation of why he will not visit the mistakes of fathers on their children, and Jon doesn’t have to bang heads with a lord old enough to be his father/grandfather to do it"

Count me in as someone who didn't totally love the episode. It was just too predictable and almost plodding.

While I wouldn't call it LOVE, I was quite satisfied with the episode. My thoughts:

The Hound's redemption is the once thing I keep swinging back and forth on. On one hand, I like the tragic way they brought back the farmer + daughter, and I like the nod to the fan theories by having the Hound dig graves. On the other hand, I just can't see GRRM writing the Hound like this and it's hard to shake.

The library in the Citadel is the most Harry Potter-ish element I've seen in Game of Thrones.

Sansa and Jon butting heads is really interesting- I'm so curious as to where that goes. I increasingly like Sansa and am just furious at Littlefinger every time he even speaks to her... but I believe Sansa (the character) in her current form would prefer to swallow her pain and deal with it if it may have a strategic advantage. 

I've liked the previous Game of Thrones cameos but Ed Sheeran is just too famous for this. It really took me out of the show. At the same time, I feel bad for saying that because I think he did a good job with the acting and singing.

I remember the faceless men in the books as being more magical/fantastical than they've been shown in the show, so I didn't really have a problem with Arya's body changing.

Still loving Arya and Dany. Cersei and Jamie are going down, and I doubt it'll be in a romantic and unified way.

I don't know about Dany.  She's clearly more interested in power than she is in the people.  Unlike her nephew Jon.

I'm most curious about Arya's story line.  I'm not sure she can really go home again, not after what she's been through and become.

Arya is so going to die. Deady dead. 

And Dany will end up as queen of the ashes, Mark my words

I am really hoping for a situation in which Dany and Jon severely disagree on something (bending the knee for example), and one of the dragons defends Jon. Just the look on Dany's face.

I think Dany ending up on the Iron Throne is just too obvious, I think it has to be someone else, maybe Tyrion. I also suspect that if Jon survives he may go back to the Wall (or rebuild the Wall if it falls).

Hadn't thought of that.  She's their mother but Jon may be the rightful heir.  They've already shown some deference to Tyrion (implying possibly he's got some Targaryen  in him).  Bran knows the truth about Jon's heritage (as I suspect does Little Finger) but some dragon love might help shore up his story.

Another speculated scenario is Dany tries to have the dragons burn Jon and he walks out of the fire unburnt just like her.

Dany's ears pricked up immediately at Ser Davos' comment about Jon surviving a knife through the heart, even though Tyrion blew it off.

The title of the book has always reminded me of the Robert Frost poem Fire and Ice:

Spoiler

Some say the world will end in fire, 

Some say in ice. 

From what I’ve tasted of desire 

I hold with those who favor fire. 

But if it had to perish twice, 

I think I know enough of hate 

To say that for destruction ice 

Is also great 

And would suffice.

Jon is both fire and ice, being half Targaryen and half Stark.  He and Tyrion are the two most honorable remaining major characters (if we're not counting Sam as a major character here).  Dany's not horrible, possibly just young, but she seems less likely to me to be the prince(ess) that was promised.  Jon may be too obvious too. Which may leave us with Tyrion or even Sansa.

I think the two of them will get back together in the end (assuming they survive)

Ice (Sansa) and Fire (Tyrion, assuming he's actually Targaryen)?   Interesting possibilities.

I know incest is cool with the Targs, but for some reason I can't see Jon marrying his auntie.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
