Game of Thrones

CNN had some pretty good pieces: 

This is a pretty good recap:

Details to remember for final season:

After looking at these - I really need to refresh myself a bit more.  But at the same time - there's a lot to resolve in very few remaining episodes.  

Overall, it appears that the Snow-Daenerys relationship will be the critical solution to all and they'll be the rulers at the end?

I also cringe a little at the whole "How to ride a dragon" scene.

Very interesting episode on 60 Minutes last night interviewing some cast members,author,etc. Also article in today's NYTimes. Game of Thrones is filmed in Northern Ireland and many tourists are visiting the sites.Good photos.

Disappointing episode , highlighted (lowlighted?) by

Daenerys and Jon's magic carpet (dragon) ride ala Aladdin. A whole new world indeed

Maybe "jumped the shark" will change over to "rode the dragon".

I thought it was good, but kind of hokey; just a meet and greet to get everyone into the same room before the action begins.  I'm curious how Jon Snow is going to break the news to his girlfriend that he is her brother. How do you do that?  Quiet restaurant?  text?

 I thought they were aunt/nephew but with this group who can follow?

 You could be right, but is that any easier to deal with?

They are aunt/nephew, his real father is her brother.  She might not have as much problem with it as he will - historically her family married among themselves (even brother/sister) to keep the bloodline pure.

Very awkward reveal by Sam, and it didn't look like Jon believed him.  Guess they're planning to develop that further next week?  Hope so! 

The reunion between Jon and Arya felt rushed and shallow, and yes, the dragon ride was underwhelming too.  Otherwise, a fair beginning to a season in which they are going to cram way too much stuff into not enough screen time.

episode was a big nuthinburger, gratuitous nudity notwithstanding.

I'm rooting for the dragons. And, oh yes, Daenerys, too. Long live the queen!

Favorite exchange last night: 

     "What do dragons eat?'

     "Anything they want."

Agreed. It was such a weird, anti climatic reveal after such a build up. The ride the dragon scene was awful. Daynerys came across as such a raging b*$&= last night, I wanted to slap her. She couldn’t give Sansa a break for a day or two to maybe get to know her a bit before she demanded submission? I don’t think they are going to rule happily ever after. I think she’s going to blow a gasket when she finds out she’s not the rightful heir and her lover is. 

Seemed like a throwaway episode to me. What a waste when there’s only a handful left.

I heard this was all over the internet, but I thought I would post it here anyway:

We redrew the N.J. map for ‘Game of Thrones.’ Welcome to New Jerseros.
