    • SUCH a good episode & recap! I expected all the episodes this season to be 1.5 hours instead of 54 minutes, so it felt like it flew by... we need more!

      There was a lot of reuniting this episode. I think the big theme this episode is reconciling multiple identities - for Theon, he's able to be both a Stark and a Greyjoy. That was such a meaningful moment!

      Also, I don't want to spoil the element of horror at the end of the episode, but it was so startling I jumped in my seat! Click this link if you want to know why.

    • This was an episode jam packed with almost all of the remaining characters of the series! The only exclusions I could recall were Melisandre and Hot Pie. But Melisandre has kinda fallen into the background, as she was banished from Winterfell and Hot Pie is clearly being held back for greater things. (check out the actor's real-life bakery!)

      When consulting anything Game of Thrones, I always go back to the YouTube channel, Alt Shift X. They've taken all of the notes on the series and refer to the books often, so you're never left behind on the drama that differs from the adaptation. Be forewarned, it's a YouTube K-hole that will suck away hours of your life (but you'll be much more knowledgeable about things like What is the Horn of Winter or Ser Pounce = Azor Ahai.

      There's even online betting scores on who will win the Iron Throne. (Ignore the fact that they rated Peter Baelish on there, as he's dead and the wights aren't bringing him back.) Personally, I think the most likely outcome is that Sansa is going to become the next Cersei and wouldn't be surprised to see her attain the throne. But, that's just from my own observations. At this point, it's anyones game. Especially Hot Pie.

    • There are definitely some open questions here for me:

      Like Sansa said: No really, where are they getting food? The north is frozen over and just came out of a ton of war and raiding. I imagine people are starving in the South right now too. I'm hoping that her comment about it is an omen of what's to come rather than just mentioning it to get the question out of the way. If it were the books I'd say it will become a major theme but we have already seen people teleporting around Westeros in the show so who knows.

      The night king has his own dragon now. What's to stop him from just converting the other two dragons? Getting the first one seemed easy enough.

      One thing that was getting hinted at at the end of this episode, and the end of the last season, is that we should be getting a bit deeper into the relationships between the First Men, The Children of the Forest, and the White Walkers. I'm hoping we finally learn the Night King's motivations and why he has a beef with the living.

    • The only exclusions I could recall were Melisandre and Hot Pie.

      We also didn't get to see much of Brienne yet, but I'm sure we'll see more of her in the coming episodes, especially when the fighting starts.

    • I enjoyed the episode, although it seemed like a lot of setup. That was probably needed after almost 2 years off, but there’s only what, 5 or 6 more episodes?! I’m with @Victoria , we need more! And stat!!!

      But based on the next episode teaser, it seemed like they’re going to ramp it up pretty quick with some human on zombie combat. So its probably fine.

      Very curious how they’ll treat the rest of the episodes. I feel like they have a lot of loose ends to tie up. Either way, I have a feeling we’re going to see a LOT of combat.
