I didn't like it. Nothing happened. And I really did not need to see her get naked.

That was unexpected and unnecessary, yes.

I have this suspicion that the Night King might try to revive some of these characters’ dead relatives to fuck with them. Imagine if Cersei dies from her dead children devouring her!

I mean, I'm glad she got laid before everyone dies, but it's weird. We've been with her since she was a little kid, and unlike Sansa's (horrifying) sex scene, it was a classic HBO sexualized T&A kind of deal.

If you think about it, it was back to basics for the show. I was kind of wondering after the fifth season what happened to all those gratuitous sex scenes from seasons past.

I would’ve wanted to see a hot and steamy sex scene with Tommen. :nod: I guess they sort of showed one with Margery but it was way too tame for the show. They didn’t even show his booty. Thankfully a video of him jerking off circulated tumblr one time so that sort of made up for it.

Also, I wouldn’t write this episode off as useless. Sure it’s meant to build up to the war, but it also serves as means to reconnect with all your favorite characters that you’ve grown fond of before they meet their very likely horrible death!

I think I remember that. Wasn't there another guy with him? Is he gay? I can't tell with British guys.

I think that scene was important for her character development though and I'm glad it was added in. We've all watched her grow up on the show, and I think that without that scene we would still think of her as a child. I don't think that's fair for Arya OR Maisie Williams

I was hoping for Arya x Gendry, but I was expecting it to be done a bit more tastefully. The full frontal felt gratuitous.


Also, hi there. :awesome:

I think given that it's Game of Thrones we're watching that's about as tasteful as it gets, it was very tame in comparison to other scenes. I might be biased though.. I have the hots for Gendry.

And Hey Brenden, nice to see it's business as usual here.

Hey Nick! You're not the only one :D

I read this earlier:

BuzzFeed wrote:The actor said the show's creative team were very respectful in asking what level of nudity she'd be comfortable with onscreen.

“David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] were like: ‘You can show as much or as little as you want,’” Williams told EW. “So I kept myself pretty private. I don’t think it’s important for Arya to flash. This beat isn’t really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, so…"

I think that's great, and yeah, in the context of the show, "pretty private" sounds about right to me.

I only liked that scene of him with the leeches on his dick. He’s too old now, though.

Is anyone else exhausted after this third episode?

Yes. My lord. They were gaslighting us this whole time with the the whole "nobody is safe" thing. I was expecting everyone to die. Cersei better rip some new ones.

I wasn't expecting everyone to die, but I was surprised the Night's King was one of the ones who do.

I’m gonna be controversial here. I don’t think I liked that ending of the Night King’s arc. That felt like such a fucking Gandalf and the eagles moment. Just a rushed way of snipping that storyline and getting to the inter-personal drama of the last four episodes.

I didn’t either until I read this tweet that’s been making the rounds: https://mobile.twitter.com/Vladimir_fur ... 7636409344

By touching them.

By touching it.

What did Bloodraven say to #BranStark in the cave?

"He touched you."


I normally don’t like to look up GoT theories but this one does raise some interesting issues. So we have two choices: the writers post-George R.R. Martin suck major league balls or they have something up their sleave. Something tells me they want us to believe Cersei is the only villain left. Of course it might just be wishful thinking.
