That price doesn't seem worth it to me. Cat would have kept the secret, I have doubt. She's not the sort to slip, anymore than Ned himself.

Wasn't it mostly down to Cat that the whole war started when she kidnapped Tyrion? I wouldn't have trusted her as somehow it would have slipped out.

Loved Ramsays death but I also loved Ramsay as a character.

I adore evil little fuckers in shows like this, and he played it brilliantly aswell.

I'm with you, I love a villain and especially the nasty ones. Makes their ultimate demise all the more satisfying.

Ramsay, Joffers, Frey and Trant were the characters on GoT that had me groaning 'oh no' every time they appeared on screen (in a good way).

By the way, I've noticed the synopsis for next weeks episode warns of Violence and scenes of a sexual nature. Happy days, i thought the writers were going soft on us.  Less Ed Sheeren - more skull cracking and tits and bums.

Cersei killing the hand of the king and then Jaime throwing Bran out of the window are what started it, though Cat certainly didn't help.

I don't think Euron is going to offer Cersei Tyrion's head, he wants to ally with her so he can go after Tyrion, Theon, Yara and Dany alongside Cersei and her army, I don't see him trying to assassinate one of that lot without her.

That said, I have no idea what he'd be offering, maybe he'll kill the sand snakes as someone said earlier? I struggle to see him attacking anywhere else as most places are too difficult to attack from the sea.

Maybe the Night King doesn't even need to be next to the bodies he re-animates....?

A zombie Wun Wun marching towards the wall though would make literally no sense whatsoever.

Sky Atlantic got over 2m viewers for the 2am showing of Game of Thrones thats massive for 2am behind the Sky paywall I bet there was even more watching illegal streams

Just imagine what the ratings would be on say the BBC if it was given the Taboo time slot 9pm on a Saturday night I imagine the ratings would be big, but sadly it will never be.

He may as well have looked directly into the camera it was that out of place..

Apart from that it was a decent warm up episode I thought. I really need to go back and watch it from scratch again but it's such a commitment. Might delve into the books soon.

The close up was of undead Wun Wun wasn't it. He had an eye out.

Of course its plausible that they reanimated giants

Definitely wasn't Wun Wun.  Common sense there.

Also wasn't the giants at the wall.  Doesn't make sense geographically.

Clearly over the years, there's been a lot more giants north of the wall than just Wun Wun and the others at the wall.

Also we probably haven't seen the full army of the dead yet, but now we will with the marching toward the wall.

These giants could have been resurrected years ago.....when there was more giants wandering around.

Ah shit of course, I forgot about that. Wasn't Cersei involved though as Jon had learned about her and Jaime? I thought she got Littlefinger to do that for her (plus he had his own motivations for it), I could be wrong though as it's been a while.

No,Lysa sent Catelyn a letter blaming the Lannisters but that was just part of the fingers bigger scheme,he is now defacto head of that house.If he could talk Sansa into his bed the next one to have an 'accident' would be Robin Arryn.

Yep.....known giants.  Who knows what the night king came across in the wilderness beyond the wall - more giants?

Anyway, bottom line, they're not any of the 3 giants mentioned in your post, so there were obviously more that had been killed at some point and resurrected.

My fucking ASDA delivery came like two minutes into it, the sloppy fucker. Anything else happen around that sort of time?

There was a cold open with the Freys.

I mean, if his first reaction to a ball bouncing in front of him 40 yards from goal is 'I'm going to whack this into the net from here', you just have to laugh at the sheer improbability of it all."

Euron looked exactly like a rebellious captain of a fleet should look. Everyone else in the throne room is usually immaculately turned out, he's a nice contrast. Of what little we've seen of him so far I think he's great.

Not that is too important for the history, but what will happen to the Boltons seat? It's one of the most important castles in the north and one of the most unbreachable according to the books.
