That might have been Sansa just being bitchy. The Unsullied are not warfare newbies. They've got supplies somewhere. She even complained about the alliance's new air force.I perplexed me that Unsullied moved their army to winterfell and somehow they were not carrying supplies for those people, or for the dragons. It was truly epic to see them flying over the Winterfell, but after two year break, it didn't had same emotional load as what it would have been if they'd delivered the episodes at 2017.
The bannermen were not overly enthused about losing the King of the North and gaining a Queen of Westeros. They still don't seem to realize the gravity of their situation. Then, of course, Tyrion jumping in and announcing that the friendly Lannister army was marching their way didn't help."We don't have time for this," Bran said to Daenerys in Stark Family reunion. "The NightKing has your dragon. The Wall has fallen and the Dead march South."
Man, talking about spoiling the party that was already super icy with a chilling message. Well, we are listening now. To my surprise the meeting with the Banners was larger in than the last time. Typical to their fashion, first messages were hitting Jon in face in old fashioned way. Nothing has changed in the Winterfell, and their people are always disgruntled about anything their leaders do.
Basically she was saying, thanks for the infantry, but what about those tanks you promised? I can't blame the mercenaries for their decision. Who wants to share a crowded boat with a bunch of seasick elephants?Golden Company mercenary company arrived at the King's Landing thanks to Greyjoy treachery and a promise for the gold. Although they look fancy, what can twenty thousand men army do if they cannot kill the Dead? They have no chance in hell to survive what's coming if the armies in the North fails, war-elephants or not. And the thing is Cercei really wanted those elephants for some weird reason. Which is strange, because if she received the same message about the undead dragon breaking the Wall, what good are the war-elephants do?
I didn't think Theon had it him to carry out such a bold extraction. His decision to return to the fight in the north indicates that he still needs to further redeem himself in the eyes of the Starks.I loved that while Cercei was shagging the oldest Greyjoy, Theon rescued her sister and set sail in the capital vessel back around the Westeros to reach the Iron Island.
And let's not omit Dany's response to Jon's query: Then, I've enjoyed your company, Jon Snow."Go on," Dany suggested.
"I don't know how to ride a dragon!" Jon looked desperately back. "What if he doesn't want me to?"
Oh man, we have come far away from the days of Dragonlance. In their defence HBO has done a marvellous job with the flight of the dragons as it felt truly, truly epic.
I don't think I have ever seen elephants being sea sick. I know they can swim between islands and go for miles, but thinking about them being in cargo, and then trodding down Kings Landing narrow streets is off putting. But it would equally shown some power.Basically she was saying, thanks for the infantry, but what about those tanks you promised? I can't blame the mercenaries for their decision.

Have you ever seen Eagles or Kites playing with their food? They "accidentally" drop their prey and dive to catch it in their claws. I believe the same thing would have happened with Jon. But bringing back the famous dragonlance, the dragon riders had a specially made saddle for them, and it aided them to keep balanced and with their ride, while dragon to aerobatics. No magic was needed.What if he had fallen?
Yes, I wondered about that ... what will he do, because a trek with gold coffins and Memorial Crossbow cannot be easy. Maybe he'll go to a castle shopping first. It's just he was made an offer he couldn't decline, as it has been so many times before. The man is cursed by his reputation.Did Bronn’s acceptance of the Tywin Memorial Crossbow and an undisclosed amount of gold mean that he has taken Cersei’s contract to kill Tyrion and Jaime?
First, I thought it fit him well, since he has been stripped his castle, status, hand and pretty much everything else that made him the Prince Brave before. Now he is just a former general and moderately good swordsman.Why did Jaime infiltrate Winterfell thinly disguised as a bearded brunette? I know, as Kingslayer of Dany's dad, that he is persona non grata with the aspiring queen.
The golden boy, from the golden company. He must earn his reputation somehow.However, they know that the Lannister army is coming. Who did they expect to be leading it?
I had forgotten what Jaime's status with Cersei was at the end of last season. I thought that the mercenaries were hired to grab the kingdoms left under-defended by sending soldiers, along with the Lannister army, to join the fight against the undead.The golden boy, from the golden company. He must earn his reputation somehow.
What is left of Lannister's army? They have had so many clashes, and Cercei burned the city, maybe some of them alongside with them. So, how depleted it is after all these clashes? Can they even match Golden Company's size?I thought that the mercenaries were hired to grab the kingdoms left under-defended by sending soldiers, along with the Lannister army, to join the fight against the undead.
Game of Thrones: Chinese fans angry as censorship results in 'castrated' debutWhile Game of Thrones fans worldwide were watching the premiere of the latest season on Monday, Chinese fans were disappointed by a censored version that streamed online in the country.
The fantasy epic on HBO is famed for its explicit content and bloody battle scenes, both known to draw the ire of China’s censors.
Tech giant Tencent streamed the season premier simultaneously with HBO, minus a full six minutes of action.
“I thought the censored version meant only cutting the bed scenes!” typed one enraged fan on China’s Weibo social network after watching.
“When I was watching I wasn’t even a little worried about my dad being there, even the fighting scenes are cut, with even those cut, why bother watching!”
The Chinese version came in at 48 minutes compared with the 54-minute original.
HBO’s website is blocked in China, forcing most to watch the approved-for-China version of the Emmy award-winning television series – though some managed to find ways to get beyond the country’s “great firewall”.
“Tencent is making us pay to see a castrated version of Game of Thrones,” tweeted another user, who identified herself as a 19-year-old girl. “Do any sisters have Game of Throne links to share?”
“It is a bit uncomfortable watching the censored version,” tweeted another user with the handle Wang Bubble. “If those scenes are not worth seeing, why would the writer write them? Why would the director shoot them? People who like Game of Thrones don’t like it for the porn and violence but for the whole thing. I don’t want to miss even one second.”
Well, here's another angle on that popularity. HBO and Chinese Communist Party left little to no choice for the general audience to break records again.Perhaps the Chinese government sees a little too much of its own reality in this fantasy.
Premiere of Final Game of Thrones Season Triggers Piracy Bonanza - TorrentFreakWith hundreds of thousands of people flocking to torrent and streaming sites, the premiere of Game of Thrones' final season has once again ignited a piracy feast. This morning over 120,000 BitTorrent users are actively sharing copies of the episode, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
The 'Game Of Thrones' Opening Credits Might Reveal Night King LocationDuring the credits, we see the breached wall, which "spews" ice forward to Last Hearth, but suddenly stops there. Fans watching the show last night should recognize the castle as the stronghold of the House Umber, which apparently fell when the Night King murdered Ned Umber, changing him into a wight. Fans were quick to speculate that after the Umber revelation, the ice in the credits will presumably follow the Night King and his army as they wage war against the houses and lords of Westeros.
u/ThrowawayForNosy first brought attention to the theory on Reddit, with most of the Game of Thrones fandom joining on board with the thought process. It's a completely plausible scenario which will likely get confirmed this weekend, depending on how the second episode of the season pans out.
"Just finished watching the new episode and immediately rewatched the intro online," the theorist says. "We see the breach in the wall and blue “ice” flowing south. It stops at Last Hearth which is where we saw the boy (forget his name) on the wall in the arm spiral. I’m betting the ice is going to change every week to show the Night King’s advance."
