Pretty good table-setter episode to start.

This episode clearly set the GoT record for most deaths recorded before the opening credits. Had me thinking flashback until about halfway through the speech, and then I realized...YES!

I thought the Frey "second feast" scene was exceptionally well-done. Was hoping to see a bit more trepidation from Bran about passing through the wall, but then again he may not know exactly what the Night King's mark on his arm entails. Got our vivid gore for the episode at the Citadel. The Euron/Cersei exchange was entertaining, because who doesn't love another hands joke. Euron's acknowledgement of Zombie Mountain was a bit intriguing, since it appeared to be more of a "I know what you are" and not the typical "oh snap, huge guy defending the queen". With all the places Euron has been and the things he has likely seen, I have no doubt that Zombie Mountain is not the scariest thing he has encountered.

Oh, and Ed Sheeran. Didn't see that coming.

That whole scene was a complete change of pace from the rest of the episode. Glad that they wrote Maisie an Arya scene where she could actually smile.

Despite all the sex and violence, the entire story is a think piece. No one is going to "win" at the end. That's not at all what the point of the story ever was supposed to be - unless the producers change it, which would be just about the worst thing that could happen.

It would probably help the average viewer to know that GRRM was/is a conscientious objector.

It's just a story and nobody knows what's going to happen in the end since the final books have not been completed--and given the current rate of progress on the novels along with the age/health of the author--there may never be an ending by the original author. The HBO series has already passed the source material and its producers have stated that they are, at this point, going to tell thier own story with a 2 year time table. I think the point that there really aren't many (if any) "winners" has already been made pretty clear regardless of how the HBO series ends.

Ed Sheeran seemed a bit unnecessary. However I thoroughly enjoyed that the actor telling Sam not to go in the restricted section of the library was the same actor who told Harry Potter not to go in the restricted section of the library.

This ep. def. did not disappoint!

-I knew it was an Arya/face-changer when they first showed Frey. I immediately thought "yes, she's about to eff some sh!t up!"

-The white march in the beginning ruled...then when it showed some giant wights I just about lost my sh!t

-They need to go ahead and GTFOuttta here w/ that ed sheeran stuff. He must've known someone to hook him up w/ that cameo...I mean do ed sheeran fans even watch GOT?

-Sam's pots/books/eating montage was freakin' awesome, great directing on that!

-Lyanna Mormant sure does know how to put a bunch of bearded 60 year old men in their place!

-The hound finally has bought in w/ the brotherhood w/o banners....interesting.

-Even thought it didn't start this ep., everyone knew Euron would team up w/ Cersei

-Dragonstone....Dany's homecoming was epic. Sam needs to go ahead and get Jon on speed dial about that mountain of dragon glass.

About Ed Sheeran: Maisie Williams (Arya) is a huge fan of him.

I loved the Sam scene with the pots. Also Lyanna Mormont killin' it as usual. And Dragonstone... I can't wait to see it brought back to life by Dany!
