Euron should just stick to jokes about Jamie. Whatever he tries to do is going to fail because he's scum and boring.

They read there'd be 13 episodes left and automatically assumed there'd be 3-4 episodes of Talk max left, with the rest being action

It's the other way around and I'm looking forward to it

It's the first episode.. jesus people are so negative here that even I'm defending a show when I want most of the white race to be culled for the betterment of the world.

Did Sam go all the way to oldtown to find out that dragonstone comes from dragonisland, a fact that Stannis had already dropped on him in a previous season?

I hope that they do more with him there because it'd be really lame if that's all he did. Unfortunately I could see him being sent there just to be kept safe from all the battles that were happening and only provide that bit of info about Dragonstone to Jon :-/.

Sam mentioned Stannis told him about it so that's just one thing. He also has Jorah there to cure and finding out Jon is Aegon Targaryen. Because of the thread title I have no idea if spoilers are allowed or not.

I suspect that Jaqen H'ghar is in fact the avatar of the many-faced god and not just a follower and he always wanted Arya to be Arya Stark - Assassin Extraordinaire and not some nameless peon. He had a pleased little smirk when she said she was leaving.

Bronn is lurking near Jamie in a lieutenant capacity

He's engaged to Lollys Stokesworth, a landed heiress to a minor house that would immediately confer nobility

He came back from Dorne with Jaime, but he has very little interest in staying involved in these intrigues

Bronn always just seems to disappear when not needed, I figure he's just in brothels and inns loving the whores. Actually would Cersei even let him live after being with Tyrion for so long? I doubt Jaime could convince her not to. Maybe he's just peaced out and creampie-ing every lady he can find in his new castle he got from helping Jaime.

If the fatass actually wrote his story we might actually know these things.

So this was a pretty good episode, but we watched it with someone who had only seen half of last season and the best part of this episode was drunkenly explaining the last six including how most of it is the fault of Sean Bean and his terrible progeny and ancestors.

All the NPCs will look up and shout, "Do this quest!"
and I'll whisper, "Sure, why not."


So unless Euron has Drowned God powers (which we have never heard of in the show), what does he hope to accomplish even with a thousand of off-screen-built ships against three (four?) fleets?

Like, Jaime spelled it out pretty well for Cersei: she is surrounded on all sides thanks to her constant need to make enemies of everyone, she used up the remaining supply of wildfire to get her revenge on an entire religion devoted to spiting her, and she is outnumbered 7:2. Even with the White Walkers taking Jon's army's attention, she is backed into a corner after running out of corners to be backed into.

A thousand ships is sort of a lot of ships for a fleet.

As far as I know, Lena Headley and him still hate each other's guts and refuse to film together so as long as the King's Landing plot remains so heavily focused on her he won't be showing up.

I never really felt a threat from the soldiers towards Arya due to the fact that Ed Sheeran's handlers would never allow him to be involved in a scene depicting violence of any kind, since his image revolves around him being a non-threatening tubby European-type that sounds like what would happen if mashed potatoes learned to play an accoustic guitar.
