Slow-ish start, lining up the chess pieces.

Lots of reunions and nice interactions.

HBO ensures the nudity quotient is met early on with our guy Bronn (who I expect will bite it early this season) getting blueballed by Qyburn of all people.

Onscreen deaths: 1

And poor, devastated Samwell. Emotions must be all over the place right now.

Yeah it was disappointing for a season opener at least John Snow now knows he's Egon Targaryen but hes in love with his step sister.

Yep. Jon's the rightful heir by succession, and it seems Jon is more scared by the revelation that Ned hid the truth for so long; a man who Jon considered the most honourable fella ever.

Basically, nobody in the North likes Dany walking in. Sansa's upset, Lyanna Mormont's upset and Glover's so ticked off he went back to his holdfast. So the united front is already cracked without the Army of the Dead even in the vicinity yet. Not good tidings.

Kind of liked Sansa telling Tyrion he's not too clever in trusting Cersei.

Rhaegar's siblings were Viserys and Dany (each were children of Aerys the Mad King).

King Robert was trying to wipe out the Targ line by having the latter killed.

Lynanna knew Robert was going to have her baby killed too so made Ned swear to protect him.

Well we all know that Westeros built an express bullet train or something around Season 6, people get around at jet-speed. The whole Gendry races to the Wall, raven gets to Dragonstone and Dany's dragons rescue the Magnificent Seven in one night bit being the most glaring how-the-heck moment

So much useless fillers in that first episode.

The first dialoge we get is a lame eunuch joke. It's so sad to see what they have done to Tyrion's and Varys characters. They are wandering memes at this point.

And how does Arya think that Sansa is the smartest person she ever met?!?! She was a servant to Tywin for an entire season for fcuks sake!

That riding the dragon scene was more useless filler and a ripoff from 'Avatar'. What's the point of Eron Greyjoy other than to provide useless filler? Isn't Kings Landing supposed to be covered in snow because....."Winter is Coming" and at the end of season 7 it was snowing at that very place when Jaime rode off into the sunset? Ugh!

At this point I'm firmly rooting for the Night King and the White Walkers to kill all these clumsy snarky and treacherous bastards and take his rightful place on the Iron Throne. cool lol

I think the showrunners are a bit out of ideas. Peter Dinklage is the big name character in the series but the general story at this time relegates him to a bit role, at best. So they find something for him to do with making eunuch jokes and hope it translates into another Emmy.

Sansa as smart is another weird one I agree. No doubt she's wiser than that love stuck teenager, but she doesn't have that bigger picture outlook that say a Davos (or even Jon) possesses.

The dragons in flight bit reminded me of Harry Potter 3. And basically the CGI spend meant that Cersei couldn't get her elephants lol lol lol

As for winter, there was a white raven sent late in S7 to indicate that "winter is here", so yes it would have made sense if KL was having at least a bit of colder weather (as it was at the end of S7).

Are there ramps or other wheelchair accessibility features at Winterfell? Because that spooky-@ss Bran seems to be getting around a lot. And he's always "there" first.

They have way too many left over characters which they could have killed off in season 7 and whom no longer add anything to the story at this point with the end game literally 5 shows away...ie. Euron, Varys, Yara, Theon etc.

Bran a.k.a 3eyedraven is creepy as fcuk just sitting there staring and judging people all day long. Doesn't he have to power to warg into the zombie dragon and use it to kill the army of the dead and the Knight King and end the war? Whatever.

Go Knight King!

Cersei does!

One minute she's telling Euron that he isn't getting any patacake from her. Next minute they're both having a cigarette. lol

If the B = NK theory holds up then we're probably going to look back on the last 4 episodes and see it as a waste of time lol

HAHAHAHA!! lol lol

At this point, I'm ready for (and expecting) any stupid ending including, but not limited to, Bronn sitting on the Iron Throne. lol

By the way, does anyone here knows how one can forge obsidian? Apparently Gendry can.

Maybe. But all he did was bag a cheap whore instead of "earning" a Queen.

Every single White chick on the planet will now be posting on their Instagram and twitter: "You want a whore, buy one. You want a Queen, earn her". lol

To be fair Cersei probably horny as heck, Jamie's abandoned her so her choices for a bed-mate are bleak. Neither Qyburn nor the Mountain are her type. Go get yours, Cersei.

One other thing: the slightly drawn out scene showing the Winterfell people's reactions to Missandei and Grey Worm. Hmmm (and not in a good way).

DemThrones is of course a good source of laughs.


SnoopDog, I'm really excited to see how Gendry forges that harpoon-looking device for Arya. I suspect she's going to go all Legolas on us at some point.
