Finally, Sansa realizes her brothers (maybe) are still alive. It's like Christmas.... as far as Sansa goes.
Seeing Cersei desperate enough to lick water off the flagstones. I don't think we've ever seen her brought this low. She might have to confess.
The whole negotiations with the Wildings actually felt dangerous; hats off. Jon's speech was convincing. And not having everyone agree was realistic.
Does Jon Snow's Valyrian steel sword have dragonglass in it? Or does v-steel do that? Or was that just him? I can't tell you what I would have done differently with that siege. I'm not sure how many times I said f*ck under my breath during that whole bit. It started bad (with the folks trapped outside the wall and absorbed into the army) and just got worse, and worse, and worse. Seeing the walkers mounted up on the cliff staring at the town and Jon... I love how they just lingered on those shots. And then as Jon is standing in the boat. They just let that scene breathe... although it was also the longest 10 yards of boating I've ever witnessed. But wow. Great directing and editing.
You know Daenerys isn't going to kill Tyrion. Because if she was, she'd just do it. She was obviously testing him, to see what he'd say. It was a fun scene before Jorah got booted, and then the private conversation where Tyrion is so self-deprecating; it works out well for him, Daenerys reads that as honesty. But finally we got the money phrase that we've seen in the promo's, and inserted into that scene it is very very powerful: "I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel." I just wanted to stand and cheer in my living room.
Looks like next week Ramsay is gonna go all Special Forces or something.
Minor gripe: Did anyone else hate the Winter King's outfit? And I mean that diamond thing high on his chest. He looks like an icy Darth Maul wearing a tie, if you just glance at him. But other than that...
