I think she is going to turn out to be Jon Snow's aunt. Ned Stark's sister gave birth to a son by Dany's older brother. (Jon Snow)





Don't like daenerys right now. Like IDC about what she's doing to the lannister army but she keeps dogging my boy snow. Like for goodness sake, he shows her actual proof that white walkers exist and what does she say? I'll serve you, if you bend the knee. I hate that. Then had the nerve to tell him to think about his people and not worry about pride. um excuse me I think you're the one who is all about pride with your egotistical self..

Also found it kind of sad for sansa how she's reunited with her younger siblings but they're nothing like she remembers them. Almost different people altogether. Also I really wanted Jon to beat Theon ass for what he did

Arya has been my favorite character since the very first episode of season one.

Well, having read the books way before their popularity and the show were out I didn't like her arc so much as I do now. Like you knew something was going to come of it all but hadn't developed in the books, even yet. It's kind of like having a baby. At first it just lays there and looks cute, but then it develops and gains personality and you really become attached to it as it's own person rather than biological obligation. Scary and badass are working for her.

PS For one of the other posts, Dany burned the grain instead of the whole army because she was pissed that Cersei emptied the grain stores from Casterly leaving Grey Worm and his troops without food to hold it or travel well. Cersei starved her army and she was returning the favor.

Idk...but wouldnt it be much smarter to burn the soldiers and capture the grain for your soldiers? I mean, either way---Cersei doesnt get it---but Dany's forces actually benefit from it if you capture it rather than roast it.

lol...on a kinda funny note, my wife informed me she's going to be really upset if the dragons get killed. She said this at the end of the episode in a tone of voice that made it sound like she had just seen a drowned kitten.

She can just feed Drogon to her army.

She has no need for the grain. It's Casterly Rock that was barren. Assuming the gold made it into the city, that means they are right close to King's Landing. Loading and taking the grain that close to the city would leave them exposed. She couldn't get it to Grey Worm in a timely manner for it to be useful or she would have just taken her own stores to him. I'd say decimating an army and burning food for the city and survivors to use sent a pretty strong message. I would have razed the whole battlefield with all three dragons and left a wasteland in front of King's Landing while still not terrorizing the citizens within the citadel, but whatever.

Dany was pissed in the scene she was discussing about Casterly Rock not having food for her troops there. I don't recall her saying food was a shortage anywhere else.

Woahaha

All that rowing paid off! There were so many fan-service moments in this episodes that felt a bit substantial regardless. A long-lost stag brings the hammer down. A mercenary plays both sides for the cash. An assassin in a cold place plots and is plotted against. Lions vow to defend the den and the new brood against intruders. A dragon recognizes one of its own. A fiery bastard ventures into the jaws of death with a collection of miscreants. A fat man reaffirms that he is a brave man.

Two episodes to go, hopefully longer ones.

71 minutes and 81 minutes if the preseason run times are correct. And so far they have been.

It was also interesting to find out that Jon Snow isn't actually a bastard and is the true heir of the 7 Kingdoms. Dany will probably be pissed when she finds out.
