    *Awesome* episode... some major storyline advancements. True, there was no Jon Snow/Theon/Asha/Sansa/Ramsay aspect tonight, or Tyrion, but basically everything else I wanted to see was covered. Many awesome scenes, and I'm SO glad Margaery is out of prison. She was being wasted there, I need to see her in a position of relative power again (oooo 'er, missus!)

    And Daenerys... what can I say...

    I knew it was Benjin the moment I saw him. My wife thought it was Coldhands.

    I could have done without Dany's corny, rousing speech (can't stand those) but thought it was another great episode. Love that Benjin's back and part White Walker. I'm also kind of glad to see Arya give up the Many Faced God thing...hope she takes out blondie in their sure to come battle. Also looking forward to see what happens when Jamie and Brienne meet up in Riverrun.

    I agree. F**k the many faced God and all the other gods while we're at it. I also hope the Lannisters crush those self-righteous sparrow shits as well...

    I have not read the books, but was there any point to the many face god thing? Maybe I am missing something, but it seems like a pointless sidetrack.

    How can Benhin be "part" white walker? Did not really get that either.

    I always assumed they were one and the same, even if that reveal hasn't happened in the books yet.

    Benioff referred to BenJin as "Coldhands" in the aftershow.

    Damn, I was hoping for a Natalie Dormer walk of atonement.

    I guess just don't answer if this is inviting a spoiler, but are Margaery and Tommen supposed to actually be falling for the Sparrows' dogma, or are they faking it for some reason? But wouldn't they have wanted to be rescued if they hadn't fallen for it?

    Yes, I either forgot they were one and the same, or it went over my head. Either way, cool to have him back!

    You and me both. That was a disappointment.

    There are no spoilers from here on out, this season is all new to book and non-book readers alike!

    My guess is Margaery thinks she has more GAME then the High Sparrow and she thinks she can play him. Sparrow thinks much the same thing. Margaery knows that and wants to play him anyway. Sparrow knows that she knows that he knows and it keeps going like that. For awhile....

    That's kind of what I thought - but what about Tommen? Just following Margaery like a lap dog?

    I agree with the previous reply. If I were to place a bet I'd say Margery and the Lannisters will get the best of the Sparrows, but maybe I'm just predicting what I want to happen.

    He talked about how he was going to become a White Walker, but the children of the forest stopped the change by stabbing him with dragon glass. Not sure if that's exactly what was said, but in a nutshell.

    Uh, one of his parents was a white walker, the other wasn't?

    Ok, that kind of rings a bell with me. This show is so detailed it is hard to remember everything that has happened.

    Some more major plot advancements tonight. Good episode, I was surprised at the Arya scene at the end!

    I hope Arya survives. No idea the Hound survived, pleased to see him back and looking pissed.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Yeah, that's gotta be the first time they've ever shown an intro scene *before* the credits!
