The new trailer looks crazy. I don't want to know what would terrify Arya like that... ???

She has yet to see a wight or White Walker.

Kinda looked like she was in the catacombs / burial area under Winterfell.  I wonder if the White Walker could have raised her dead parents that were now trying to kill her.

Did their bodies make it back to Winterfell?

I think Ned's bones did.  Certainly not enough left over to raise.

There was a point in the trailer where it looked like Arya had one of the dragonglass knives.  But if SHE looks that scared?  I can only imagine where things are going to go.  The fact that the Army of the Dead is going to march on Winterfell is pretty grim all on it's own.  And everyone being huddled in the catacombs?  That place has been significant over the entire course of the show, and I can only imagine how things could play out if the Night King made his way in there.

Maybe Catelyn Stark, too, since they didn’t go the Stoneheart route.

Should have made a dead pool before the season started.

A friend at work started a Game of Thrones pool.  I went line by line and when I was done I think I left too many alive.

Lot of awkward reunions!

Arya's weapon!

Dany should have just told Sam his family died in battle. :(

The rescue of Yara seemed surprisingly easy. I thought that would play out over a few episodes at least.

Cersei back to drinking wine while supposedly pregnant. Hmm.

I liked the episode, but I was kind of expecting more in kicking off the final season.  I don't want to complain because I love the show but when there are only six episodes left, to see them burn an entire episode with all these long-awaited family/friend/frenemy reunions was a little anti-climatic. 

I was glad Jon finally learned who he really was but man they took their time getting to that point having Bran see Jon without telling him/everyone and then having Sam meet Dany first before going to Jon finally.

At least Dondarrion got to set an undead kid stuck to a wall on fire so some action happened.  :P

Maybe next week will be the start of ****-hits-the-fan with the undead army reaching Winterfell...

I liked the episode.  Bit of a slow burn, but the first episode of the season usually is.  Plenty of good setup for what's to come.


It was fun to see the reunion of Arya and Jon, because they haven't been in a scene together since the pilot episode.


Poor lil' Umber.

I thought the same thing, although do we know if all of the remaining shows are roughly one hour in length?  I thought I recall reading that some were as long as two hours.

Ultimately I expected the plot and action this season to feel like it was moving too fast as they tried to jam everything in to the last six episodes.  Last night was the normal GoT slow pace, which felt too slow for resolving lots of stuff.

I was thinking by the end of the series we will need to know if the White Walkers can be defeated who is sitting in the Iron Throne.  There are lots of other sub-story lines that I had kind of hoped got resolved, but maybe they'll just leave lots of those open at the end.

Longest episode has been confirmed at 80 minutes  :P
