Favorite part. Not seeing Hodor as a wight. Not ready for that…yet.
Bonus: Any scene with Thoros, Sandor and Beric. More of this please.
I haven’t been able to listen to game of owns on itunes for a while. it says episode unavailable when I try to play :/ apple is so s..t sometimes
My truly favorite part was the turd montage. I was more grossed out by that than any violence on the show ever. The actor that plays Samwell is really good at selling the, “I’m on the brink of retching” face.
My sarcastic favorite moment(because I make fun of everything I adore)was the expensive product in that crooning Lannister’s hair. Can’t get a raven to a soldier about a baby, but the Pentos Pomade is plentiful! My boy looked out of place BUT it was a light hearted scene so I’ll let it slide. That doesn’t mean it should be free from some good natured ribbing though. Is it in Ed Sheeran’s contract that his hair look like it’s salon fabulous at all times? That cameo really did feel like a Love Boat or Scooby Doo cameo though.
Episode was FANTASTIC though. I thoroughly enjoyed the heck out of it. IT’S SO GOOD TO BE BACK IN WESTEROS!
What happened to all the Gold Cloaks?
They weren’t all at the Sept.
It’s gotta be Arya’s massacre, although I had the most fun with Sam’s montage, drumming my fingers on the table along with the rhythm.
HBO schedule once again provides a slightly longer synopsis for E2:
“Daenerys receives an unexpected visitor. Jon faces a revolt. Sam risks his career and life. Tyrion plans the conquest of Westeros.”
ARYA!!!!! she’s a boss ass B!!!!! i love her and i swear every hair on my body stood up as she walked off!!! oh and poor Sam LOL ….doodie pan..books…heave..doodie pan…books….HEAVE!!! 😂 it was a lil nasty haha but i cracked up with every heave lol
I don’t Think It as Of BEST Premier ,
It Was Just Mere Intro Of Some Major Characters According To Me ,
Still Best / Favorite Part Of Premier Goes To One and Only ARYA STARK of Winterfell .
Looking Forward to Battle b/w Greyjoys and Meeting of Ice and Fire 🙂
After the first scene my thought was Ayra is going to be killed by the faceless men for going too far. If the show/books have taught me anything it will be in Winterfell when everything feels great.
Very possible, but I personally thought if the Faceless Men wanted Arya dead then they never would’ve let her leave Braavos in the first place. You never know though.
Favorite Part. The Cold Open. And Arya was cold as h*ck.
Or maybe Jaime’s face when Euron said “two good hands”.
Or it was being back in Westoros over 12 months after the Season 6 Finale.
I agree, except she killed one guy anonymously in Bravos. At the twins she pulled off her skin mask in front of witnesses essentially sharing their assassin secrets.
Who did she kill anonymously in Braavos? She killed Meryn Trant and the Waif in Braavos, which the Faceless men already knew about while Arya was still there. I can’t think of anyone else.
Eh, let them come. Arya will just take ’em out one-by-one. Their cult needs to be abolished anyway. 😛
I honestly don’t think the FM are the end of Arya’s story. I feel that’s even less a chance with the way the books are going, and if the show wants to end in a similar way….
Arya removing Walder’s face feels like it was solely for dramatic effect. We’ve already heard that none of the Frey girls knew who she was or were too afraid to tell anyone. They may not have even told anyone exactly how other than they were simply poisoned. That was a pretty hefty sacrifice to the many-faced god. should be pleased 🙂
One thing I learned , FM teach not only how to change a face but also to change one’s physical height!
Yea, following the logic of showing a face being removed and how that could cause trouble for revealing secrets…Jaqen pulled off a mask in front of Arya at the end of season 2 before she knew anything about the Faceless Men, so by that logic shouldn’t Jaqen also be killed?
Yup, I would think that Arya would be the Many-Faced God’s favorite servant due to the amount of bodies she’s piling up.
I started laughing during the poop/soup montage when I could no longer keep things straight, was I looking at a bed pan or a soup bowl! Poor Sam, he probably felt the same and the editor and director wanted us to experience that too!
Love your hair style comments! The one thing that jarred me out of the scene for a moment was Ed’s hair! Otherwise, the scene was fine.
While they have taken some apparent liberties we haven’t been given any real specific restrictions to the abilities of the FM yet in the books. The one thing that should not be possible from my interpretation is wearing more than one face at the same time. The bond is created by attaching a face to the FM’s own face. Also, while wearing the face they essentially become the person, with even nightmares and memories of the person. Imagine the clusterf*&k of multiple persons at once if it were possible, mind and appearance.
No civilians know who killed Trant…only faceless men. She was punished for that. The waif was essentially self defense. I hope I am wrong and she and Nimeria have a reunion. The one thing from the books I miss is the role the Stark’s wolves take.
Only me missing more of Wyman Manderly??
I looked in the fire and saw this vision of the (faceless) Many Faced God sitting at a desk,going over a ledger with Jaqen H’ghar standing behind him. The MFG turns the page to March:
MFG: Three? She’s been home a month and only killed three? What were you thinking, Jaqen, in setting her loose? I thought she was a natural-born killer machine?
JH: But Boss, be patient. A Girl has many gifts but takes her time to just kill the guilty.
(Jaqen turns the page to April)
MFG: (somehow grinning) Ahh, that’s more like it. Granted, those Freys, sent me a few thousand three years ago. I hate to lose that supply chain.
JH: Worry not. The Great War is coming, and A Girl will be fighting the Undead. Think of how many you’ll get when they finally become accountable to you.
MFG (leaning back, putting his feet on the desk): Okay, you can stay as Sexy Jesus. Now, get me a drink and order a roomful of ledgers.
(JH walks out towards the camera, smiling)
If one reads the one instance in the books where , for the first time, Arya gets a FM face-job it is really confusing what is going on. It seems to be something physical yet GRRM describes Arya being able to feel her real face with her fingers yet sees the face of the ‘ugly girl’ in a mirror. It’s weird. (All this done with the aid and blessing of the FM.)
The show kind of square waves the whole thing. Page wise , at this point, Arya has a totally different relationship with the FM.
They may be keeping that in S8 , I don’t know, GRRM’s page seems to have Arya in a position to be something more than an assassin. Something more important.
*The Northern Council part I – Jon decrees that everyone over the age of 10 must learn to fight regardless of gender. I love Brienne in this scene – for the first time in her life, she is encountering a man who is actively encouraging her and other women to fight. And for the first time in her life she is encountering young women who want to do so. She is no longer alone and the ridiculed exception to the rule; she is accepted for who she is. I also love the look of approval she gives Lyanna Mormont when she hears the Lady of Bear Island argue back to Lord Glover.
*The Northern Council part II – When Jon tells Tormund to man Eastwatch-by-the-Sea. I laughed at the line about the Free Folk being the Night’s Watch now, and at the reaction it produced on Lord Glover’s face!
*Sam – Just all of Sam. It is almost as if he received his letter to Hogwarts, took the train there and turned up. Only, when he got there he found out he’d be interning at the Dursleys and studying magic under the cover of night.
Yeah I always imagined the faceless men thing as the same kind of magic Melisandre uses to look young, a kind of glamour. When they use a face everyone perceives them as the actual person until they remove it. A gift from the many-faced god. However it works it’s really cool!! Arya might just be the most dangerous person in the whole of Westeros at the moment.
For the first time when she sat down at the Lannister Soldiers camp… instead of thinking “oh no, here we go something horrible is about to happen to Arya” I actually felt scared for the Lannister Soldiers… hehehe!!! Love it!!
Not going to analyze the shit out of things cuz I’m going to bed but just want to say my favorite part was seeing Jon in first act as king. I just love the way Kit plays him. Got no time for the few who still say he can’t act. Pfffttt.
Least favorite was Dragonstone. I expected to feel something even though it’s not my favorite character arc, but just ended up falling very flat.
Btw I miss Dragonbringer. Has he been on lately cause I haven’t seen.
Wait… you joked that the Hound might be Azor Ahai…. IS he????
He was (re)born amist salt and flame after all… and he did see things in the fire…
I have several favorite things:
The Hound from visions in the fire to gravedigger nod and every witty, foul-mouthed observation in between.
Arya scene-felt SO GOOD-actually both scenes 1. Was justice and amazingly done 2. Was real and gave us hope that not everyone is Westeros is irredeemable. That there are people who aren’t named Stark who are worth saving from the Long Night.
Jorah sort of meeting Sam-but hey, he’s alive so I’m happy
Jon being a great leader and still focused on saving everyone instead of ruling or revenge
Edd being totally freaked out by Bran, but letting him in anyway
Sam-who wants to be a wizard-asking Prof Slughorn about books in the restricted section. Worlds collide lol
What happened to the other people on the podcast? Micah and ????
I like Zack and Hannah, I think her name is.
I didn’t listen during the off season, so I don’t know what happened.
Came to this thread seeking an answer to the same thing. Sounds like they have several paid podcasts now and this is no longer their primary thing?
