Overall it was an ok start to the season. The beginning was KILLER. The Starks brought it in every scene.
Arya and Sansa seem to be veterans now.

It's great to have this show back.

Interesting that Jorah ended up at the Citadel. I think Danny just sent him away last season iirc.

Think I liked the scenes with The Hound the most. The show also did a good job of catching everyone up without making it seem too forced.

The costumers with Circe just seem to have gone "chainmail and leather gown, eh? I'll make that work". Just visually delicious.

Yeah he and Varys seem to have the ability to zip across the sea like they're crossing a street, lol.

But like, what about squatters? Groundkeepers? It's a giant honkin' castle! It was weird to me that it was literally deserted. But I didn't care because of the reverence of the scene.

Did y'all notice that there was a picture of Littlefinger's dagger in that book Sam was looking at...and the camera lingers on it. I wonder if that was just a call back or if that dagger played an important role during the Long Night?

That cold open was amazing. I also loved the scenes with the Hound. I'm amazed Ed Sheeran survived his cameo (well, maybe...we don't know if he'll be back the next time we see Arya), but his presence seemed distracting.

This show makes throne rooms entirely too small. Dragonstone's throne room should have been like a cathedral. The show has the budget to do cgi set extensions.

Sheeran surviving was very disappointing.

I thought the episode was pretty good.

Everyone talking about Ed Sheeran but I was more excited by Thomas Turgoose and Jim Broadbent's appearance

Jaime being triggered by Euron's hand jibe made me laugh.


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Arya wiping out the Frey men was coldblooded


I think Tormund is going to break Brienne down with sheer persistence. She hasn't outright shot down his advances yet.

Top knot hate is strong with the Hound.

Based on early reports about his cameo, it was only meant to be five or so minutes, so that's probably the last we'll see of him.

Did anyone else noticed how Euron glanced at the Mountain when he leaned towards Jaime? He now knows that The Mountain only defends Cersei.
I guess there could be a Jaime vs Euron fight?

I really liked the premiere. This is how a season stars.

This Euron was far more enjoyable than last year.

Both Arya's scenes were excellent, with the massacre at the Twins and her talk with the "more humane" Lannister soldiers( also I don't understand the hate Ed Sheeran is receiving here).

Loved Dragonstone's scene. Visually spectacular.

The Northern scenes were great (Giant Walkers!!!!). Glad to see Edd back.

I loved Sansa and Jon's bickering. They were both right but I will give my vote to Jon because he was right about Sansa undermining him in front of the Lords.

I enjoyed Sam's scenes (pretty much more screentime than last year lol).
Also Profesor Slughorn!!!!!


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
was that Nymeria on next episode promo? My bet is Arya tries to kill the lannister soldiers and she's aided by Nymeria?
Maybe she eats Ed Sheeran ????????????



Sorry for my awful English

I think have zero people in Dragonstone was really unrealistic. Selyse wanted to leave Shireen there originally, who was she going to leave her with? There should still be servants, wives of soldiers, etc of people still living there.

But D&D hate Stannis so why be reminded of anything related to him?

Arya is a beast.

Loved Sansa calling out Ned and Rob for their dumb decisions. Also loved her shutting Littlefinger up. She's grown so much and I can't wait to see more.

Poor Sam, but he gets the job done.

And Dragonstone was beautiful. "Shall we begin"?
