I liked the echoing of bran in the first ever opening scene with the lad who ends up on the wall emblazoned with pseudo nazi-esque symbolism. Both went from adventurous young climber to being fixed in one place...

The kid on the wall was Lord Umber, the one who Sansa sent back to gather the rest of his army, not the kid climbing at the start.

Episode 2 is bound to end with a shot of NK looking at Winterfell.

Agreed it's still very enjoyable if your expectations are reasonable. I just wish the writers would be aware enough of where their current strength lies and ditch the Iron Throne plot entirely. Don't even mention the seven kingdoms again until maybe the very end.

But Cersei is still plotting to retain the Iron Throne, albeit without the elephants, so the Throne is still the elephant in the room, Night King or not.

The kid clambering about at the beginning of the episode was trying to get a good view of the Unsullied marching into Winterfell.

Anyway I enjoyed it. No need to over analyse.

I enjoyed that eposide, predictable as it was. It put all the pieces into place for the wars to come, and thankfully we dion't have to waste time in Bravoos and Mereen going forward.

Reading other posts on here about abandoning the Iron Throne thread of the story makes me wonder in when they will finish the Night King story. I think they might defeat his army earlier than the last episode which might lead to a kind of Return of the King (no pun intended) last episode, where all the politics will be resolved. And I don't know if I like that idea to be honest.

But Cersei is still plotting to retain the Iron Throne, albeit without the elephants, so the Throne is still the elephant in the room, Night King or not.

The inelegent solution were for these episodes to mostly ignore her and focus on the night king and the characters battling him, and have her presence as unspoken name that they all decide to deal with later. The better solution would have been to kill her off earlier and have it already settled with some twist, like Jon's heritage, at the end.

But it is what it is, and I'm enjoying the many good parts between the characters that we get.

I enjoyed that episode.

Pity it was around 50 mins long though.

The ending had a went full circle element to it.

Considering most of the complaints the last few years are about the plot/dialogue, it's easy to forget they've killed off most of the charismatic characters. Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage are probably the only two great actors left (at least as far as main characters), the rest are mostly just average and there's so many of them who have to share screen-time. Even if most of them die in the next few episodes, the two 'leads' Jon and Dany, don't blow anyone away either.

There's some terrific actors, and some very average ones. The two leads you mention belong in the latter camp. At the other end of the scale, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau managed to steal the whole episode and he was only in it for a few seconds.

I love GoT but the script and some of the acting is The Walking Dead at it's worst.

I can see the similarities, but GoT on a bad day is still infinitely better than what Walking Dead became pretty much any time after S2.

The disparity in acting ability has always been quite startling in Thrones to me. You've got the likes of Charles Dance, Dianna Rigg and Jonathan Pryce, all superb....and then the completely wooden, one-note Brann and Daenerys who've barely been able to register a single emotion in the 7+ seasons we've been watching them. As others have alluded to, Nikolaj Costar-Waldau's fleeting moment with Brann was probably the best moment of the episode. That is acting, and a few too many of the main cast can't do that.
