What? I've read all the published books - multiple times. Love them.

All I was saying was that I held of watching this series (6) for ages because I didn't want to spoil the forthcoming novel for myself, but seeing how much the show has diverged from the published books in both 5 & 6 I'm no longer worried about that. They're pretty much different entities these days.

Season 8 is going to be 6 episodes apparently. Season 7 is full length.

Less than 5 minutes into the first episode of the new season and I'm already cringing in my seat.

I feel like I'm being held hostage by this show at this point. -_-

Weird episode. It was actually really good, but the two scenes with Arya in both fell totally flat. I don't like her little deus ex machina where she can just pull a Mission Impossible face mask off and kill whoever she likes; and whilst I got what the scene with the soldiers was trying to put across, it just fell totally flat with the acting. Everything about her storyline seems so corny now that they've just rushed her through it.

Other than that though I did enjoy it. Particularly Clegane's scenes. Fingers tentatively crossed for the rest of this season.

Could have done with less Ed fucking Sheeran tbh, although the weight was counterbalanced by Jim Broadbent! but yeah I loved that.

Not the strongest of opening episodes, but does have a damn fine start.

Roll on next week.

I think if Sheeran had been made up to look like someone other than Ed Sheeran, nobody would have noticed him. I've no idea whether he's staying around for any length of time, but I don't think the actor had any impact on the scene at all. Jim Broadbent was great, but it took me half of the scene to realise who it was.

I liked the episode. It didn't feel like there was much wasted time (which has long been a problem with the series for me); I'd say the scene with Arya and the soldiers was the only one, but again, I've no idea whether those men are going to feature later on.

I have no idea why Mr Sheeran was even in the episode. At least they didn't try to make him act, he just had to sit there.
Plus all the soldiers lamenting their little lives....look, we're real people, don't do anything nasty to us. "I gots a baby". "I miss me dad".

Bit of a nothing episode really.

It wasn't action-packed but I wouldn't call it a nothing episode. To recap some of the big events (and obviously spoilers, in case anyone's mad enough to venture in here without having seen it):

- House Frey is annihilated;
- Sam discovers a possible solution to killing the white walkers;
- The Hound undergoes some powerful internal redemption;
- After sixty episodes, Dany finally reaches Westeros;

That's three fairly major long-term plot developments and one massive character movement. I struggle to think of many other episodes with that much of significance going on. And even better, there was some exceptional dialogue, particularly at Winterfell. It feels like the quality has been cranked up a notch.

Agree with the general consensus, bit of a pish opening but a solid episode. The Iron Islands managing to build a huge fleet from scratch and still make it to Westeros before Dani is a bit ridiculous though.

Sam's training montage was brilliant :lol:
