Starts off pretty epic with Arya getting her revenge on the Frays. I like her more each season. Some of the training stuff got tedious but I suppose such a long, drawn out training would be necessary to make her a formidable fighter instead of a kid. She’s still a kid, just scary now. Seems one has to be scary to live around here.
– Sansa is ticking me off so far this season. That’s not unusual for her, but I have high hopes for her later.
– You get to see some shreds of decency from Legain. Sorry about spelling, never read the books. And there are too many names around here.
– Dany’s homecoming is solemn and significant.
– Lots of shifts in alliances. Civil war for the iron islands.
– Jon Snow finally meets Dany. That’s probably going to be significant later.
– The red woman admits her mistakes. She has a strange conversation with Spider in the 3rd episode.
– Dany has a heck of a list of titles. Takes like 2 minutes to run through it
– Conversation with Dany includes a lot of posturing. But she does admit that her father was a madman. Jon tries to convince Dany of the Northern threat.
– Dany’s faith is in herself. Her allies are mostly captured. Though that is an improvement over the dead I thought them.
- Euron Greyjoy gets a promotion.
– Cersi gets her revenge. Though at this point, don’t remember upon whom. Probably the Tyrells.
– Tyrion and Jon have a heart to heart.
– Jon and Dany’s second meeting is cool.
– Littlefinger is still being manipulative… big surprise. Somebody please kill him.
– Sansa gets a happy reunion. Bran says he can’t be lord of wintefell. He is the three eyed raven.
– Jorah gets his miracle thanks to Sam.
– Lannister army is on the move
– Olena has a heart to heart with Jaime. She kind of has the last word.
– Sam’s kin are Lannister lackeys. Shocking. No, not really. Sad though.
– Arya finds home not quite what it seems. She gets to meet Sansa. Interesting mtg. She also gets to see Bran. He’s still weird. But he gives her a gift I think will be significant later. Ep 4 largely calm compared to others.
– Jon gets to use ancient pictures to tell Dany a story. She promises to help if he bends the knee.
– Ayra is quite the swords woman now.
– Whole season should be called reunions. Jon meets Theon.
– Dany takes to the field. The battle is awesome… though they worked very hard to make sure all the key people survive for once.
– Dany has a fine speech… but the dragon roar fixes most of that. Dickson and Tandall get a lovely sendoff.
– Jon gets to pet a dragon.
– Gendry is back in the game.
– Ep 6 Arya confronts Sansa about the really old letter. Jon and the rest are hunting dead… kind of boring if u ask me into they get into a tight spot
– fire swords. Yay.
– Dany has an interesting conversation with Tyrion.
– can somebody please kill Littlefinger. Pretty please?
– And Sansa being stupid. Again. Oh, there’s a big surprise.
– Dany snow outfit is awesome. Jon gets stupid again. Sad.
– Arya proves she is a very scary person.
Episode 7 has quite the parlay. Short season. Dany’s entrance is stylish . Truce? Intriguing. End awesome. Finally!!!! Cersi is well, herself. Jaime at least has honor. The whole winter is here thing finally makes sense.
