My only gripe was the Ed Sheeren cameo. A show this big doesn't need that kind of gimmick.

Bold of Arya telling Lannister soldiers her plan. Hopefully she kills Ed Sheeren's character quick.

I kind of liked it. They were nice guy Lannister soldiers showing Ayra than not all Lannister soilders are bad or even Lannisters. Just regular guys from the Westernlands with Dads, Wives and daughters who get occasionally sick of fighting someone else's' war. Ayra's reaction to their kindness was interesting: she was surprised, and then happy.

I'm hoping that there will be a bit of growth from her from revenge hungry murder machine, to a person who realizes that the skills she has need to be used wisely, or she will be no better than the people she is killing. I'm hoping an encounter with Nymeria will provide her with some reflection and introspection on who she is as a person, and she turns her tail to head North (and her actual home, like she promised Jaqen at the end of S6)

Correct. She said to Jaqen, "I'm Arya Stark, and I'm going home." She never kept her promise to be "no one" to him....though. She's been a bit of a liar. I hope she does go home.

Now that she knows the Boltons are dead and Jon is back at Winterfell she should be going home.

Pretty good episode. Not filler but defiantly building. Bad ass naval fight with Euron Greyjoy and the fam

That was a super fun episode. I am not sure how I feel about Theon turning back into Reek. Like I know he probably couldn't have done anything to save Yara, but to completely b!tch out like that was a little too much in my opinion.

Is it bad that I was happy the sex scene was interrupted by the battle? I hate Ellaria and the Sand Snakes so much, that I am happy Ellaria is suffering from female blue balls, plus whatever torture Cersei and Euron (Ceuron? Eursei? What is their relationship name?) will inflict. Good bye, Sand Snakes, and good riddance.

I like that Dany is being kicked down to the same level of desperation that everyone else in the world is at. She's lost half her Crownlands siege force, the other is going to get run over by the Lannisters shortly, and she was threatening to burn her smartest adviser alive even before that happened. Casterly Rock is now a do-or-die target, because otherwise Dany's got nothing going in Westeros. And Dany's going to lose one of her three biggest weapons once Qyburn starts cranking out high-velocity ballistas
