Better late than never. I just started GOT a couple weeks ago and am about to begin Season 5.

New trailer for Season 7 dropped today but I'll wait to watch it when I'm caught up  :P

I'm genuinely curious to see where the new season will go.  Will the remaining Starks reunite at last?  And the previews have me wondering if we might finally see Casterly Rock.

Well, I hope it is ok to make comments the morning after.  :D

The whole thing was freaking fantastic I thought, starting at a high point and never letting go. Arya is just the best character ever.

Like that we are starting to see the future trajectories taking shape more and more. Dragonstone now super important.

I'm putting the over/under on Jamie killing Euron at about 5-6 more episodes.  ;)

Tormund/Brienne still funny.

Undead giants FTW!

Agree that Arya is a total baddass.  I feel bad for her though - so many people want to kill Cercei now (Lady Olenna, Ellaria Sand, Sansa, Tyrion, Danerys, etc) that job might be done by the time she gets to King's Landing. :P

Loved the scenes with Arya.  Her assuming the face of Lord Frey was epic!  Looks like she's going to reunite with Nymeria this season...love it!  She's going to fail in killing Cersei though....it's going to be Jaime that ends up killing her.

I'm not sure how Sansa's story is going to play out.  Sometimes I think she's going to, inadvertently, screw over Jon's rule (like questioning him like she did at the meeting), but then she is definitely not going for Littlefinger's advances.  It will be interesting to see how that all plays out.

I'm glad this show is back!

So will we take to calling that opening sequence the Red Feast?  That scene was certainly satisfying from the standpoint of some righteous vengeance being dealt out.  But the "Previously on Game of Thrones" segment just before the cold open flashed back to Arya dispatching the late Lord Frey at the end of last season.  It let the audience in on what was happening, and that it was Arya disguised as Walder Frey from the get-go.  The only thing it really served to show is that Arya has been trained quite thoroughly as one of the Faceless Men, and that the Freys are no longer a house that has to be contended with.

Mostly?  This episode seemed like an exercise in plate setting, and getting things established.  But Euron Greyjoy trying to court Cersei?  LOL!  That's going to be strange at best, and even Cersei called out Euron when he came to court.  But will that storyline potentially involve Euron getting the Valyrian dragon horn, like in the books?  If that's the case it may develop into something interesting.

Jaime is going to die dueling Brienne.  Cersi is going to take some dragon glass to the heart and become the Night's Queen - leading the forces of the dead against Jon Snow and Daenerys.

So it seems like Jorah Mormont thinks the Maesters of the Citadel can cure his grayscale?  I had to rewatch that scene between him and Sam to figure out who was in that cell.

That was definitely Jorah.  And apparently there was another Easter Egg WRT Jorah in the episode.

Also somebody pointed out that Sansa is now sporting Cersi's hairdo from the first few seasons of the series.

Between Ramsey and Littlefinger, Sansa's pretty well effed in the head.

The disagreement between Jon and Sansa in open court was really uncomfortable.  But the way that Sansa told off Littlefinger?  She's clearly learned how to play the game.

The scene with Arya and the Lannister men was curious.  For the entire length of the series she's had nothing but hatred for the Lannisters.  But having sat by the fire with these men (and the odd Ed Sheeran cameo), it seems that Arya's world view may be changing.  And it also seemed like she liked these Lannister foot soldiers so much that she didn't want to lie to them.  Only for them to find her claim that she was going to kill the Queen so outrageous that they all burst out laughing.  I'll give it to the showrunners, because I didn't see that scene playing out quite that way when she rode up to their camp.

I'm not so sure Sansa knows what she's into.  I think she thinks she knows, but Littlefinger isn't upset by her declines.  It's a dangerous game and "chaos is a ladder."
