She was going to kill them, wasn't she? It seemed pretty implied given how she kept putting her hand on Needle and looking at their swords slung in a corner of their camp.

She was considering it, was my interpretation, but that just underscores my point. She has very personal beef with the Lannisters. But even though these are Lannister men, they seem to have done nothing to harm her or her family, and in fact have shown her only kindness. The show consciously decided to humanise them, and to make sure we know Anya knows they are real people with families and lives. So the question for what's to become of Arya is: do we cold open next week to a scene of her murdering those men as they sleep, and if so, was that the right thing for her to do? Classic 'Thrones.

I think it's building to Arya and the Hound meeting up again. By which point, the Hound will be mostly a moral person, and Arya maybe mostly an amoral person. Or to put it another way, I think we are invited to understand more about each of these characters by contrasting with the other.

The hound is on her list of course.

I don't see any evidence of her planning to kill them. Anyone in westeros riding into an army camp would be checking where their hosts had their weapons and making sure the hilt of their sword was to hand.

Maybe he's gone looking for Gendry.

I agree with Doccy G on the Arya scene.

He was alive and well in the last episode of the last series.

I wonder which bits are going to be the tedious, rubbish bits this time around. It's mandatory that there is at least one setting where your heart sinks a bit when the scene changes to it.

We've already had the Ed Sheehan bit so it's all going to be sweet from now on.

Everything with Sansa in it.
She still simply can't act.

That line to Littlefinger was delivered perfectly.

Didn't Sansa-bashing go out of fashion about three seasons ago?

I don't keep up with mainstream pop music, so I didn't notice the ginger was a famous person, thus I liked the scene since he's got obviously a good voice and the song was pleasant.

Besides that, solid episode.

And the scene between Euron and Cersei was the best. And I agree with him when it comes to taste in women.

Yes, it was splendid. It was a 50/50 mix of her mother and Cersei, which fits the character perfectly. I also enjoyed her scene with Jon. I think perhaps in hindsight she can act fine but has been hobbled by dull writing for most of the show up until recently.

I think that it's more to do with her character in the show. She was an ingenue that wanted to marry Joffrey as that was the role she may have been raised for. She was very young and made many poor decisions and ended up with powerful men who were not pleasant. Much as I agree that her character was irritating, I'm not sure how else she could have played it. If you're that young and that massively suppressed then you are going to become inert. She was in abusive relationships. I don't think it was poorly written either. The fact that there are so many very strong female characters in the show tends to throw her character into stark contrast. Pun intended.
I suspect she's going to come into her own this series.
However, I'm not going to make any remarks on her voice, which I find quite nasal, but then she's having to do a Northern accent because of Sean Bean.

I watched this!

My thoughts were that I do t know who the singer everyone is moaning about is. He was dull but not awful.

The Lady Whatsherface (young girl who gave her army of 13 people or whatever it was) to Jon Snow can barely speak in sentences, let alone act.

The bit with Sam(?) at the library/monastery type place and the scene with his horrible day to day tasks was directed awfully. It was like a bad advert for wooden buckets. It really didn't fit with the way the rest of the show has been directed and just when you thought the tediousness couldn't possibly go on any longer they looped it round for another 6 minutes or so.

I liked that. Seemed something out of Breaking Bad.

The fact that it seemed like somethjnvbout of something else was my exact problem with it, as it interrupts any immersion.

This is some good shit.

Question: if we count Theon, has there always been been a Stark in Winterfell?

The Stoneskin removal scene was tremendous; a pretty small and cheap scene which worked fantastically because of two great performances and some outstanding prosthetic SFX work. I was really wincing because Iain Glen sold it so well.
