For Pete's Sake! I really hate autocorrect! That's 'fan service' not 'can service'There was a lot of can service in this episode. Fodder for Gendrya shippers, Brienne being Knighted and referencing her ancestor Ser Duncan The Tall with the title A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
Nice call. Do you have something of a Three-Eyed Raven in you?I'm looking forward to Bran looking at Jaime and saying: "The things I do for love"
I read that situation that she didn't like the competition, especially as she started the episode by reciting the old tale of Mad King's days. Jon never set his mind to be the King, she however became the Queen and liked it.Up last but not least was the big monkey wrench Jon threw into Dany's lifelong career plans. Dany was still trying to wrap her mind around the concept of being second in line for the Iron Throne when the blaring horn announced the arrival of the dead.
I hope not, because then everyone who mentioned wanting to fight is going to be turned. Maybe they are going to be true to George and everyone dies. The NightKing wins without uttering a line in eight seasons.Lyanna Mormont has 'Redshirt' written all over her. And Jorah will have to dispatch her walking corpse.
As you all have noted, all those points and more made it a very nice episode... the knighting particularly memorable. However, as to DT not liking the competition, I'd say that was a mild way of putting it. More so, this season thus far her personality seems to have changed from the great compassionate liberator, to a conqueror. That scene and her clear desire to seek revenge on Jamie(sp?), who STILL did not defend his actions showing the honor he holds was disappointing.I read that situation that she didn't like the competition, especially as she started the episode by reciting the old tale of Mad King's days.

if last week was a "hello again' how's life been" episode for all the character's being reunited, this was more of a "right we're all going to die, been nice knowing you". which I felt was more meaningful, especially with the battle looming. at least we'll definitely get some action next week... right?Coming after last weeks episode it was more of the same but with a bit more meat on the bones. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I agree with this too - I thought a lot of the dialogue was unnecessary and not that well written. and I realized we've had the jon/aegon revelation 4 times now. Brandon, Brandon-sam, sam-jon, jon-dany. surely this was a bit unnecessary. and I agree that Dany does not seem happy about it all. I get the feeling she is going to do something unforgivable (such as leaving Jon to die) and then die in the battle ahead.My gods that was a slow episode. The reason is not with the pace but the fact that we know too much. We already know more than the characters do themselves, hence the endless explanations and non-revelations. What we really needed to have was some kind of huge 'truth or dare game' so that they could all get up and tell everyone all their secrets. Once over their secrets they would all be back onto the same page.
