Come to think of it, the next episode could be the episode when we lose a lot of characters.
Oh, and Tormund Giantsbane is absolutely insane. In the books, there's a knowing wink to go with his tall tales. In the TV series, there is no wink.
Here's a list:Anyone laying bets on who dies and who survives?
I kinda want to see a plot twist where the Night King tries this, but they turn against him.Just incidentally, given all the mentions during the episode, is anybody at this point not expecting the Night King to re-animate all the deceased Starks in the Crypts, turning them from a refuge into a battleground?

Given the emphasis on how safe the crypts are, and how neither Sam nor Bran are going to be there, and the preview image of Varys looking really scared while hiding out, *something* is definitely going to happen down there.Just incidentally, given all the mentions during the episode, is anybody at this point not expecting the Night King to re-animate all the deceased Starks in the Crypts, turning them from a refuge into a battleground?
Yeah, but he's just a pile of bones. We don't know if the walkers can reanimate disconnected bones (skeletons that still have some bits of sinew and clothing and whatever to hold them together, yes; but piles of bones that have been cleaned?)That is brilliant, Ned's down there to they returned his body season 2.
And possibly also a little of her insane father as well. I think there is going to be some trouble. Based on her reaction, her first thought was that Jon poses a threat to her, rather than that she's been sleeping with her nephew after all.So are Jon and Dany headed for conflict? She can be quite murdery about people who challenge her right to rule the world, and he’s now a potential threat to that. I’ve always thought she’s got a bit of Cersei in her.
No, it would seem they're not the end game. My guess would be that the survivors from the battle against the white walkers will march on King's Landing to face Cersei, Euron, and the Golden Company.Are we assuming the white walkers are not the end game threat, BT just the first half of the season? (Three eps... that won’t be wrapped up next week, surely? Alhugh we know one episode is the biggest battle ever filmed, which I’m guessing is next week).
Mmm. Also, not counting the kids who've literally grown up on the show, Jaime seems to have visibly aged the most of all the main characters.I wish we’d seen Jaime show he’s the best swordsman in the world before he got his hand cut off. They keep telling us, but we never saw it. Show, don’t tell!
It could be a massive misdirection. The Night King might attack King's Landing directly with Viserion? Do they have anything at KL that could combat either one of them? They don't even have valerian steel weapons there anymore?After all, we've yet to see that bit from Bran's vision of a dragon's shadow on King's Landing rooftops.
