Think of a modern analogy - US has unquestionable air superiority (and sea superiority for that matter). Does that mean the US does not need a standing army?

You can't win a war without ground...

I'm predicting there won't *be* an Iron Throne by the end of the series. Heck, there might not be one by the end of the season if the wildfire has anything to say about it.

I wouldn't go that far, but it is a much better season than last season (even with this last episode being a stinker and a couple others being middling).

I am also skeptical they can wrap the...

I guess we'll find out next week, but if I were Brienne, and I made a deal to get the Blackfish to surrender, and instead it was Edmure Tully that surrendered *to the exact same effect*, and the deal...

Correct me if I'm wrong - I believe they did get the Tully army? There was a shot of them marching out right near the end. I am assuming they got them just in time for the battle next week :)

That's not what happened. She said that if he attacked the castle (and the Tullys) she would be honor bound to defend it. He did not attack, they surrendered - there was no reason she couldn't have...

They had safe passage. Are we to believe Jamie granted her a one-way pass? If he did it would make the tower wave that much stranger. An extremely silly episode, to be sure.

Don't get me started...

Terrible episode - quite possibly the worst of the series. Preposterous resolution to Arya's time in Braavos. At this point the show has to keep doing a good job to make us care about anything other...

Yeah, I would have felt worse for him but there was zero percent chance he was going to win anyways.

I'm pretty sure this meant that every single immunity idol was wasted/useless this season?

Terrible move by Scott and Jason - I can't see any jury voting for them at the end now. Tai seems to have dodged the bullet.

I actually really enjoyed this season (particularly Carl's story) but the last couple of episodes kind of dragged it down.

Also, IIRC, the very first season they had the hidden immunity idols, the rules were like this (that they could be used after votes are read). I think they changed the rules after that first season.
