Jon organizes defense of the Norph. Cersei tries to even the odds. Dany comes home. In 59 mins of not enough nudity and mild violence.

How will Cersai explain the Holy Sept incident and Tommen's accident?
A)newly discoverd volcano
b)Crazy nun
c)The High Sparrow himself (He did hate the Holy Sept)
d)OBAMA
e)The writers will laazily gloss overthis event

Will Tormund finally rape Brinne?

Will the Hound finally admit to hiring catspaw to kill Bran?

Will Arya explain how a mask can make you taller and boobs bigger?

Thanks for reminding me to avoid UP tomorrow morning.

GoT airs at 3am which I'm not staying up for. Download the episode in the morning, go to work, avoid all social media and UP and really the whole internet tbh to dodge spoilers, come back after and watch immediately.

The show doesn't need to address cersie blowing everyone up. She killed anyone in Kings Landing who could oppose her. She has an army and her lover brother is the commander of it. He may blame her for Tommens suicide but he has repeatedly stated that the only person who matters to him in the world is Cersie. So I don't think he is gonna oppose her.

You can't just kill a shit load of people (a few of them important) and destroy the second most important building in the city and be like "I'm in charge not important". At least blame it on her enemies.

Notice how Jamie is the only one still wearing the old Lannister armor and not the new Queen Gothic armor.

Maybe season 7 will start with Jamie and Cersie making another baby.

Jamie will betray Cersie. It's the only 100% certain thing.

1) Jamie had that moment with what's her name before she died
2) Jamie's last child killed himself because Cersie used wildfire to blow up hundreds of people
3) Jamie does not like wildfire or monarchs who blow up the city...
4) Jamie actually does have some connection emotionally to people in the Stark camp where they are not all murdering family members (two sons and a father at least dead by Lannister doing/hands)

It'll stack and result in him betraying her.

It isn't some post enlightenment era legal system. Might makes right in the feudal system. Cersie is queen of the iron throne by right of conquest/murder. But She really isn't queen of much. The reach and Dorne are aligned with Dany. North and Vale are sworn to Jon. Iron islands are in rebellion (?). All she has are the esterlands and riverlands, neither region has the will or strength to unseat her.

The only way Cersie isn't killed by Dany in episode 2 is if Euron Greyjoy aligns with her, offers her his big cock and defeats Yaras fleet. Otherwise it'll be a very one sided war.

At least as far as the show goes. I think in real life, dragons would probably be a relatively simple thing to kill. Just build a hundred or so ballistas and have them all fire in the relative same direction of a dragon and you'll kill it.

I haven't seen the trailers for season 7, but I'm still thinking Daenerys' fleet will face a wildfire trap like in the Battle of the Blackwater, Euron Greyjoy will sweep in and clean up, and Daenerys will end up on Dragonstone where she can equip Jon's army with dragon glass. I'm looking forward to being completely wrong. :p

Recall Jaime killed his cousin to escape from imprisonment. And Tyrion killed their dad and Jaime doesn't seem to particularly hate his brother for it. I don't think that taboo really bothers Jaime, especially since Lancel was a full blown traitor and Kevan was also seemingly against both of them.

"Jaime doesn't seem to particularly hate his brother for it."

Not too sure about that.
[Bronn]: "If you ever see [Tyrion], give him my regards."
[Jaime]: "[Tyrion] murdered my father. If I ever see him, I'll split him in two, and then I'll give him your regards."
http://youtu.be/0nuNKEhuIlY?t=2m3s

Jaime doesn't outright hate Tyrion, but he's at least ambivalent. When he said that he might have just be trying to convince himself to fight for Cersei's affections though, in which case a good scene would be to have Cersei and Tyrion in the same room with Jaime, forcing Jaime to decide between them.. I think this theory came up in the UP threads for the season 6 closing episodes. Seems familiar..

Well, in this episode they discuss Tyrion and it's certainly clear that Jaime isn't really boiling with anger at Tyrion. Jaime actually seemed pretty accepting of the fact that there really wasn't much they could do to win, until euron showed up.

Overall a pretty good start to the season.

The touch with the Lannister men singing the singer's stew song made this episode great. I hope that encounter softens Arya's character a little bit because she was clearly thinking of killing all of them.

I thought Aryas meeting with the Lannister soldiers was the best scene. Its clear she intended to kill them all. But then they alsoo started to talk about their families, the shitty war and so on.

She may just kill them anyway. Outcome of that meeting will really set the tone for her story arc.

[smart dude]: "That scene was ruined by that faggot Ed Sheeran. Least subtle celebrity cameo I've ever seen. Shameless and distracting. GG."

Distracting for *you* anyways :p ... I didn't even know who he was during that scene. I just looked him up on Wiki and I still don't know who he is :p .. another random pop singer? (I get that it would have been annoying to know who he is, though — cameos like that can be bad moves by the producers)

..
No one has mentioned Ser Jorah yet! Since he was locked up in the citadel I guess this means that Samwise Gamgee will have to befriend him and cure him? Maybe that will let Samwise facilitate Jon and Danny's relationship.

Not sure that I like Euron's new goth-sailor look. Not *everyone* needs a new wardrobe for a new season ;)

Also looked like they showed Tyrion's old Valyrian steel dagger in Sam's book. It may be just an Easter egg, but it could be a reminder that it's out there.

This is what I thought. Dragonstone looked fairly depressing when stannis was there, suddenly transformed into a fairytale castle when daeneris was approaching.
CrownRoyal

Mon Jul 17 08:25:30
And although not a huge deal, why do they even bother with celebrity appearances? Ed Shiran was horribly wooden, why was he even there. It is not like they need advertising and hope to capitalize on getting Ed's young fans, the show is as popular as anything ever put on tv. The only explanation I see is that Ed is friends with the either showrunner and this was seen as a cool thing. But it backfired

You can use both.

" it's hard not to be offended when you call my sister a suitable woman to play a sloppy town whore. "

First of all I said she'd be superior to ed sheeran, so it was almost a compliment. And second, I said "no offence", so stfu

Did you really find his casting distracting? I thought they underplayed him if anything. If he comes back for another episode (as in arya is wearing his face to kill Cersie) I'll probably get annoyed. But as it was done I thought it was subtle.

Not a huge deal. Not enough to ruin the episode. But enough to detract from that particular scene. Imagine if it was Justin Bieber? Well, Ed Sheeran is the Justin Bieber of the U.K. So, yes, maybe you don't understand it. But it was a horribly distracting cameo that they rammed down your throat. The singing, plus the fact he was in almost every shot in that scene. You might not have noticed, but many people did and thought it sucked. Good for you. "underplayed" my ass.

Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran, MBE (born 17 February 1991)[5] is an English singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer.

In the US, he made a guest appearance on Taylor Swift's fourth studio album, Red.

Taylor Swift contacted Sheeran after hearing his music while touring Australia in March 2012.[66] He later co-wrote and provided vocals for "Everything Has Changed", a single featured on Swift's fourth studio album, Red.

In July 2017, Sheeran appeared in a longer cameo on Game of Thrones in a scene together with actor Maisie Williams, who plays the character Arya Stark. David Benioff explained that since Williams was a big fan of the singer, they wanted to have Sheeran appear on the show to surprise Williams, and that they had tried to get him on for years.

"It would be cool if Arya killed him."

That would still annoy me, it would have the same feeling, a celebrity hired for "fun". Now, if Ed Sheeran kills Arya, ok, then I can at least admire the showrunners who went all in on sheeran.

Maybe she will get gang raped by them. These soldiers seemed to be way too friendly. It must be a trick. It's very likely that Arya walked into a trap there.

It would be a remarkable turn of events if the showrunners cast Ed Sheeran in a role where he rapes an underage girl, and Ed Sheeran agrees. The backlash would be something to behold

Mountme, used to speaking to women who have been gang banged by horny Muslim men, automatically assumes any woman in proximity to men must get raped. That's honestly sad. You are a very pathetic and weak man.

I'm only speculating based on what we have already seen in this show. Women has been raped and killed, people has been eaten by dogs, a child has been burned alive, a brother has sex with his sister. People has been tortured, people has been beheaded. Yet, this show is not made by Muslims, but by Americans.

That would probably ruin that scene for me, yes, though I would still hope that Bieber's character would be gored horribly in a future episode (maybe his tongue and lower jaw torn out so that he can't sing anymore? Forced to linger a little, pouring soup down his throat hole?). ;D

This might be inconsequential.. but..
Usually when a house takes over a castle, the next episode will update that castle with the house's sigil in the opening credits. This episode was the first episode after Cersei's coronation, but King's Landing still had a Baratheon stag. I get that Cersei has risen up in *relation* to Baratheons, but at her coronation (S6-E10) she was called a Lannister only (not Baratheon), in S7-E1 she signed correspondence as a Lannister, and in the throne room there's a giant lion/Lannister sigil behind Cersei instead of the old seven-pointed star.

I'm wondering if the producers forgot to update the sigil or if this was a kind of intentional snub of Cersei's attempt to rule as a Lannister.. (I.e., she wants the Lannister sigil over King's Landing but by law remains a Baratheon).
