    I didn't hate Ed Sheeran as much as I hated the scene. It dragged and wasted time.

    Also, you guys not knowing that Jorah dipped on Mini-Aerys is unforgivable. "I order you to find a cure".

    Can't wait for Jaejae to kill Daeny. Gonna be the best day of internet ever.

    Way to be wrong. That scene was great character development for Arya. It showed her that not literally all Lannister soldiers are bad and that she probably needs to temper her killing spree a bit. She sat down planning to kill them all but ended up eating and drinking with them because they were just soldiers who would rather be back with their families.

    Didn't know who the guy was and didn't even realize it was a cameo until after the episode. I'd say it was one of the least problematic scenes in the episode. Pretty good human interaction and humanization for Arya, IMO.

    The only other scenes of the episode I enjoyed much were the Hound/Brotherhood scene, Brienne/Tormund, and Cersei/Euron. In almost every other scene, I had to completely turn my brain off... which is par for the course, I guess, and why I'm pretty apathetic toward the show now, in contrast to most other HBO fare that is intellectually stimulating rather than reductive.

    Daenerys' landing at Dragonstone fell completely flat for me, in what should have been an emotionally riveting sequence. Stannis left Dragonstone completely undefended? No skeleton force? If so, why did the crown not seize it as a defensive multiplier? Regardless, why on earth would Daenerys be the first through the breach? If there were people there, she would be dead.

    Arya's Red Wedding 2.0 reinforces my belief that something similar, but far more structured, will be executed in the books by the Brotherhood. In the show... I guess killing a notoriously large family in their own castle is a one person job? Combined with her apparent seizure of the kitchen and baking of a Frey pie all by herself without anyone noticing, the show is complete rule-of-cool fan fiction now. It was a fun scene, to be sure, but there's no internal logic or consistency to this universe anymore. Anything fans want to happen will happen.

    Sam's 5 minute poop joke montage is exactly the humor and wasted time I've come to expect from David "Themes are for 8th grade book reports" Benioff and Dan Weiss.

    I agreed with Sansa in the context of the show, although both had merit, but the entire argument was kind of contrived, and something that would happen in the pre-meeting, not the meeting. You would think Jon would be a little more gracious to Sansa, considering she's -- as far as they know -- the real rightful heir to Winterfell. Sansa saying she "learned" a lot from Cersei is a little eyebrow raising.

    Genuinely enjoyed Euron's portrayal in this episode, in contrast to last season, and despite him being a different character from the book. The actor's putting in a lot of effort, and I'm hopeful that he'll be genuinely menacing.

    the scene was fine in establishing that many of these poor shmucks are just "are troops". but being like "what the fuck is that ed sheeran, the guy who is in love with the taste of poo?" did not help the beginning of it at all

    Honestly though, it makes more sense for Ed Sheeran to be on GoT than it does for him to be making reggaeton "fuck your girl" club songs.

    Bruh, you know better than to expect that in a season opener.

    By the way, where was Edmure Tully? Did Arya just leave her uncle to die of starvation with the Twins empty and him in a cell? lmfao.

    I didn't mind the Ed Sheeran cameo, his natural look is suited to 16th century hair upkeep technology.

    Hopefully. The amount of bitching I deal with when he's on screen because of Outlander is too damn high.

    Presumably he is still at Riverrun? I don't recall if he returned to The Twins with Jamie in last season's finale.

    I assume he's still in a cell at Riverrun.

    Just watched the episode and I've already forgotten most of it. Maybe if I didn't hate Dany I would've been down with the ending.

    I actually liked the song he was singing

    I had this in my mind the entire scene.


    On a more serious note. I don´t get all the hate for this ep either. Yes it was slow, yes they wasted time on unnecessary scenes but eh. I can live with that. Hound/Arya scenes were pretty good. Also the Iron Fleet is pretty impressive. Though Dany´s dragons would burn that shit to ashes in a matter of minutes should they clash.

    But what about the horn?
