    To be fair, that's also where the books kind of slowed down. I found Book 5 more enjoyable to read than the first half of book 3 (aka season 3 on the show). They're actually still using stuff from Book 4 and 5 on the show.... they just cut out a lot of the stuff that was just meandering, and replaced a few side characters with main characters or just eliminated certain characters altogether. Getting Tyrion to Mereen earlier was a wise move, also.

    Ah good to know! Yeah, I'm pretty glad they made him do a hop, skip, and a jump to Mereen and focused him and slowed down there because I don't think Tyrion's role would be that exciting being with Jonah over and over going whereever everyone else was going, now if this was some massive reversal where we'd start the show over again and had that happen way earlier, it'd be definitely cool to see like a tour of the GoT map getting there from King's Landing to Mereen although it'd mess up the whole Targaryen storyline having that happen so early.

    It may seem that season 6 might be one of my favorite seasons of the show if I assume that they might slow down again for season 7 on again.

    I really enjoy the King's Landing thing what's going on right now for some reason, probably because of the beautiful scenery. Where Danearys + Tyrion was the most interesting character combination ever, the building of him and Verys is quite cool too.

    Okay, I got to admit, I was really happy to see Littlefinger (Petyr Baelish) again.

    Offhand I know, I tend to enjoy watching INTJ's instead of seeing myself as one now, I think I am happy being who I am, not that I am trying to impersonate, it was just massive confusion to see if I was really Te/Fi with untapped Te than actually an Fe/Ti user but that's just fluff.

    Seeing an interesting idea that maybe the letter from Ramsay was forged. It was definitely missing an attachment care package of body parts Ramsay is well-known for sending along with his missives. And seemed to be stylistically a bit different from his normal approach.

    So are the writers playing it straight? Or is this a Karstark or even Littlefinger plot? It's interesting to see Littlefinger push immediately to "go all in" with the Eyrie forces, he's normally more cautious; it suggests maybe he's actually pushing for this war (another reason he married Sansa off to Ramsay?), so as to leave him to pick up more pieces when it is through? It's all about positioning. Maybe we're seeing part of his long-game in action. So send the letter, trigger a confrontation, and hey, look at who shows up to help and prove his mettle to the "new king of the north" since Littlefinger really couldn't trust Ramsay (unstable as he is) being in charge, he's a mad dog who would as soon as bite Littlefinger as lick him...

I predicted that if he comes back, he won't have the same loyalty to the Night's watch, and he won't give a damn about what Melisandre has prophesized for him. This is pretty much where he's at emotionally right now, coincidentally. I think the reunion with Jon and Sansa was my favorite scene of this whole season. I guess people probably differ with me on this, but I think Jon's really grown into a compelling character. I find something relatable about everything that's happened to him as a character.
    I agree. I think he was superceded in importance, storyline wise, by other narrative strings in the front part of the story -- they were always playing the "long game" with his particular story, backloading versus frontloading. Now he is reaching fruition, and all that build is starting to pay off. If his experience didn't impact him like this, I'd have been surprised.

    But in a way, it makes him more trustworthy. He's got ideals, but he's seen the fruition of those ideals and knows what is at stake -- Eddard never got a chance to come back from that. Stannis, also... another man driven to stringent choices because of his rigid views of his role in the world, and now look. So Jon is reassessing and trying to determine what his purpose is in this kind of world now. I think it makes him stronger. It makes him his own person, versus someone trying to fit themselves to the mold of hero or even wanting to be a leader.

    Dubrovnik. At least that's where they did film the King's Landing scenes. I'm not sure if they still do. But the walled city (intact as far as I know) was an excellent choice.

    I love this combo. lovelovelove. I think Tyrion + Verys would be great on it's own (and it is) but the current combo is so good. And I think Grey Worm and Missandei will eventually be right there with them in the understanding of negotiation.

    Dubrovnik. That sounds beautiful! I did a quick google image search and I would love to visit that place for sure! Although I wonder if I would give too much of a tourist vibe.

    Grey Worm and Missandei will eventually understand, I quite agree with it. Tyrion is more than what he says that's for sure so even should they not get their end of the bargain, they will liberate the slaves for sure. But I hope the show isn't them entirely liberating slaves through, I mean the humanitarian theme is nice but this is a show too haha.

    Uhh-huh, I said the same thing immediately. You know he would have sent like the pinky finger or maybe some pulled out toenails of Rickon's if he really wanted to prove he was at Winterfell.

    Does he eat people after flaying them? No. "Then I've seen worse."
    There's been speculation regarding the whereabouts of Rickon prior to being captured... something to do with Skagos and cannibals.

    All of the Stark kids have been given uncanny experiences, save Rickon. I think Ramsay's in trouble.

    LOVED Sansa this episode. PLEASE do not take her development away from her with more misplaced torture porn, D&D ...

    Also, based on the promo, I'm SO excited for Bran stuff next week.

    A lot of sadists in power in The Game of Thrones universe. I'm looking forward to Jon Snow's march on Winterfell. I want someone to finally give Ramsey his due. I was a Stannis supporter in the books, but he wasn't nearly as honorable on the screen.
