When Jamie said to Myrcella something like "Aren't you cold .. ?" referring to her skimpy Dorne clothing, I had to smile at a Fathers criticism of his Daughter ..


Doran wants Trystane on the Small Council as a replacement for Oberyn .. I'm wondering if Myrcella and Trystane get hitched before leaving Dorne .. ?? And how much sway does Jamie actually have in getting Trystane on the Council .. ?? Is there even a seat open .. ??

Unbelievable, there's only one show left.

As long as we don't have to hear "Oysters, Clams, and Cockles!" again, we're good to go.
I love Arya's new persona.

It appears that Myrcella has likely aligned herself with the Martells ..


And, on those wondering about the Sands "hand slapping" game .. this is actually an inside joke scene concocted by Benioff, which had nothing to do with anything plot wise .. who in a drunken fit of stupidity, challenged Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) to a similar game where Benioff was soundly trounced by Momoa


and for the funniest scene this season :


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLDuW8CFRD8

They were south of the wall... If they were North of the wall then the gate would be "in" the wall (tunnel). They approached via a south entrance which looks to be the same one Jon entered when coming from being shot by Ygritte. Eastwatch would be their closest harbor to walk to CB.

If they were South of the Wall, there would be no need for a door .. the Watch is all South of the Wall ..

with the pace at which the show is moving I think the showrunners wish of 7 seasons just might happen...I still think that the final season will be extended beyond 10 episodes (16 episodes would be my guess) and split over 1 year but I never thought that they could finish in under 8

They still have a gate south of the wall...the type of gate they entered was not one..the gate they entered however was just that a wooden gate. For the watch they have it on both sides. Remember when Jon and Ygritte looked out over the south? North of the wall they have minimal entry points which is why the wildlings scaled the wall. If there was a small gate area like what they went through that would have been the prime point of attack Why wouldn't they need a door south of the wall? That makes no sense...

It's a lot more than hair style. Her face has changed a lot. She used to be a very cute girl but her features have definitely changed regardless of hair style.

??? Eastwatch is south of the wall... Was the bay to the left of the entrance? I'll have to watch that scene again, I thought they were south of the wall when they entered.

when Arya is selling the oysters as Lana are we supposed to believe that she has a different face...meaning do other people not see 'Arya' anymore and instead see the face of Lana in the same way that Jaqen changed his face at the end of Season 2?

They came in through the north, since they came through the wall. The wall facing south is just a palisade (about 60 ft. high) instead of a 700 foot ice wall.

No, she is Lana in name only. As Jaquen said, she is not ready to be faceless, but she is ready to be someone else. That "most likely" the reason Trant gave her the "I know you from somewhere" look when he saw her.

Who is the Kings Guard knight that froze Arya? I want to think it's Meryn Trant the one the Hound had so little respect for.

Just re watched the scene, both of you are correct, my apologies. I agree that they should have entered through the south...they may have not been able to for some reason though which is why they entered from the north....

Yes, Trant is the one who "met" with Syrio in season 1 and we are to believe killed him. I don't think he is alive, Trant doesn't seem like one to leave someone surviving when tasked with executing these people.

he wasn't tasked with executing Syrio...he was sent to capture Arya...Syrio was just protecting her...when a man can change faces it's easy to get away from someone...say for example he was fighting Trant and he switches his face to another member of the King's Guard during the chaos...he can then slip away

The Syrio scene has always stuck in my memory, because, even for the short time he was with us, I really liked the character .. and the way he talked .. although the killing took place off camera, I think he bit the dust .. remember, all he had was a wooden practice sword and there were several guards plus Trant ..


There is only one God and his name is Death, and there is only one thing we say to Death: "Not today".
