I expect this will end like Monty Python's The Holy Grail. They all get arrested at the end and the fourth wall is broken.

Nice opening episode. Slow build to what's to come.

Couple of questions

-The dead father and daughter, what exactly happened there with the hound? Can't recall

-The castle at the end, was that were Stannis was last based? Obviously Targaryen territory initially


The bedpan bit had me rolling :lol:

Nope, Doctor Who will turn up and break the internet.

Epic crossover potential :mrgreen: .

That was excellent.

Loved the opening scene and the bit with Sam emptying the bedpans was hilarious, I fully expect someone will edit that bit and make a tune from the sound effects.

Wasn't it a family he visited with Ayra and he beat them/stole from them/left them to starve/fend for themselves or something?

I hope we don't see people like Ed Sheeran popping up everywhere, his blatant cameo took me out of that scene.

It was completely unnecessary.

Agreed. The This Is England kid would have done that anyway, but at least he's an actor.

Enjoyed that, cracking opening and then lots of moving the pieces into place.

The Hound's use of "banana split" never fails to make me laugh. "You're fooling nobody with that topknot you bald banana split" :lol:

Bran looks around about 30 now. Obviously a hard life being a disabled kid in the North.:lol:

There is no "US" pace anymore. It's simulcast with the US on Sky Atlantic and available on demand pretty much as soon as that's broadcast.

This. Just made me remember it's not real.

HEY WHAT'S THST SINGING GOOD SINGING THOUGH RIGHT HEY IT'S ED SHEERAN LOOK ED SHEERAN THAT SINGS JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW LOOK HERE'S HIS FACE FULL SCREEN FOR A BIT LOOK HEY BUY HIS ALBUM AND A TICKET FOR HIS TOUR THAT'S ON 'MEMBER GLASTONBURY?.

I liked the opening scene, although unusually for this show it was really obvious what was going on as soon as the wine was poured. Still satisfying though :nod:

The hound :wub: I'm guessing those were the people who took him and the girl in, then he took their money.

Cersie walking on the map while it's still being painted :fp:

Who is Euron going to kill for Cersei? I assume his gift is going to be a decapitated head, not a necklace. ;)

My immediate thought was Tyrion, but I can't see Euron getting anywhere near him. One, or more, of the Dornish sand snakes? Or maybe Dorne itself, rather than the gift being an actual dead person?

As a book reading wanker - I'm pretty sure I'm know what Euron's gift will be.


The Ed Sheeran was a not very subtly done but he's a bout the fourth or fifth pop star to cameo. It's really not that big a deal.

I hadn't read this before.

Now to those extended episodes! HBO over in the US has posted unique pages for each instalment of the new season, revealing that the finale on August 27 will be a whopping 81 minutes long!

In between the premiere and the finale, episode two on July 23 is also 59 minutes, episode three on July 30 stretches to 63 minutes,episode four comes in a bit shorter at 50 minutes, episode five bounces back up to 59 minutes, and then the sixth episode hits 71 minutes!


Episode four will seem really short in relation to the others.
