    What? I said I understood your point of view-- the paragon of virtue, the One True King, the protagonist of the show has a lower moral composition than Cersei and Jaime, being not only incestuous, but an incestuous pedophile.

    For the record - we're talking about a fantasy show with flying dragons, dead people who fight wars, dire wolfs, maim and torture, previous incestuous relationships, eunuch armies, legal brothels, death & rebirth, women giving birth to dark energy fields, nudity and violence, and you're telling me the paragon of virtue can't love a person "who is not his sister" "whom he loves," "and has always had a special relationship with?" So... Arya can be a cold blooded killer - but she's too young according to the GOT premise to be a sexual person? We don't know her exact age - but even Jon Snow called her a "woman" in S8E1. You're looking at GOT through your own eyes not GRRM. I predict Danny or Arya will die before the end, and Jon will end up with the living person.

    Ask me another - I'm on a roll.

    I think Arya ends up in a sexual situation with the ice dragon and the ghost of her aunt, Lyanna Stark. Bank on it.

    I'm sure most of you have already seen this, skip to the music starting around the 30 second mark.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    No, Clack none of us thought that, despite the GOT incest theme, most of us don't go there.

    Not great episode, but fun to have GOT back. They really missed a marketing win to put this thing in the dead of winter and lead it with "Winter is coming" all Christmas break.

    I went to watch this and all of a sudden, I didn't have HBO subscription, had to pay $15 to add to my Comcast XFinity. I've been watching HBO this whole time. Did HBO play a fast one to up subscription revenue? Or was that a quirk for my system?

    But seriously. I think most of us that were paying attention see that Arya and Gendry are about to be the power couple of the series...

    Looks like the big fight will be next week - and then we'll have three episodes to find the winner of the Game of Thrones.

    Looks like Danny is going to have to kill Jon to keep her pole position. Or bend the knee.

    Maybe I was wrong. I can't be right all the time.

    I thought the episode was fantastic. I enjoy a good foundation building.

    Tormund is the best.

    You stay around and watch the "After the Episode" stuff? It was really good this week.

    I'm pretty relieved at the return to the pace they established in earlier seasons. I understand they had to do last season on fast forward to get this thing back to the dock by the time the clock runs out, but it was pretty disappointing. I guess we're getting a war for the next four episodes and then a coronation?

    It'd be epic if the Night King killed everyone and then moved on Cersei. People would lose their minds.

    i think we probably only get two episodes max of this war. maybe even one.

    And then smash cut to Jon and Khaleesi breaking the fourth wall Wayne's World style, introducing about three different endgame scenarios. IT'S UP TO YOU, THE VIEWER, TO DECIDE WHAT REALLY HAPPENS. fade to black.

    I like Khaleesi, but she can be really dumb, too. Her roasting people with dragons for no reason was not what I call starting on the right foot right before every living soul does battle vs. the ice army.


    Also, the way I see this ending is that she is married to her nephew and he remains King in the North. That's probably the least interesting result here. What I'm more interested in are all the other miscellaneous pieces. Where does Jaime end up? Maester of the Night Watch? Does Gendry join forces with Arya and become the ruling Lord of the House Baratheon?


    My concern is that they'll spend too much time on CGI battles and stuff and not tie everything up with a bow.

    The anticipation this week is pretty bad. I'm assuming that at least one of the characters I like is going to die in the next episode. I think it's easier to deal with knowing that some of the characters you like could die at any time, rather than one of the characters you like is going to die this Sunday.

    I say that Brienne of Tarth is donezo. Also, Theon, Torgonudo, Jorah Mormont, Lady Mormont, Dolorous Ned, Samwell Tarly, and one of the dragons.

    I'm worried about this too. GOT hasn't overdone battle scenes in the past at least as far as I remember, which I find totally boring in ever movie and why I gave up on comic book movies. So I hope they don't do that now. But they've built up this war for so long, and I'm sure most of the fan base wants to see big, long war scenes, so I guess we'll see.

    They seem to be setting up some tension over whether or not Dany will split with Jon over this rightful heir issue. That's an interesting angle. I don't see her giving it up. I see him offering it back to her and ruling together. But I don't think she could go for that very easily. It will always undermine her authority and ego.

    I think your death roster is almost spot on. But for Samwell Tarly and maybe Tormund Giantsbane (the last wilding?). Probably need to add Beric Dondarrion to the list. Also think Arya Stark might be a casualty but really hope she isn't.

    My theory is that Jon Aegon and Dany decide to rule Westeros together. Dany is already pregnant with his child and dies giving birth to the future heir of the seven kingdoms.

    Ahh, the son rises in the West(eros)? If that prophecy boils down to a homophone, that's a great dad joke.
