That was perfect for me and my ageing brain - a catch up at the beginning and then a first episode that eased me gently in to what's coming so I could process it all.

Sansa has come a long way;

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
"No need to seize the last word Lord Baelish, I'll assume it was something clever"

It was a great line but she delivered it like a cross between her mother and Cersei. I almost punched the air.


That episode was an excellent counterpoint to the nerds whining about a female Doctor. Just about all of the women in this are capable, intelligent and most definitely not to be fucked with, especially Lyanna Mormont, who is not letting up on being awesome.

We watched the last episode of the last Season just before this new one.

True story.

It wouldn't have been so bad if he wasn't sat in shot all the time pulling you out of the immersion with his reaction face.

I agree. Aargh is a psycopath. The Hound is awesome.

It was only the fact that Thomas Turgoose was in the same scene that stoped me from writing to my MP.

I was looking forward to next week which will surely see Theon's Sister being all surly and kicking some ass. I likes her.

I didn't mind Sheeran at all. I just went "Huh, Ed Sheeran" and then got on with my life, because it changed basically nothing. Obviously, the Internet is all upset about it, because... I dunno, really. He's a singer, maybe?

But no-one cared when that dude from Snow Patrol was in it.

It just seems odd having stunt casting in a program that eleventy-billion people are going to watch anyway.

I don't watch either programme, but I assume as a season finale, the Bear Island ladies face off against the Love Island ladies.

Yeah, that to some extent. It was a crap scene, seemingly shoehorned in because Ed Sheeran. I didn't mind him being there, but I minded that it was just generally a crap bit of the episode. Arya turned from murder revenge child into giggly girl talking to boys, and it was jarring.

I agree. Aargh only had to tell a person what she was up to, so it could have been Ramsey's other girl that Sansa murderised. She was hot.

Well it also introduced the lad from This Is England, presumably he'll be in it again. But the Ed Sheeran thing was shite.

I didn't like it either but wasn't the purpose of the scene twofold:

1) It shows the motivation for what Arya is up to now.
2) It describes Kings Landing as being a bit of a shit storm after Cersai blew up the sept and the Lannister army morale is at rock bottom.

I didn't like Ed Fucking Sheeren because: he isn't an actor and his mere face in GoT was weird; he was playing a singer so it was a nod to real life which is by itself immersion breaking; he had taken a page out of the David Beckham book of acting; that line "it's a new song" delivered to camera was really strange like he was going to release it as his next single and lastly the strangeness of him being on screen was amplified by everyone else giving a stilted performance during the scene.

Oh, I don't agree with that. It made the point that things aren't as black and white as Arya thinks; there are people she's defined as her enemies who are just normal people trying to survive when their lords decide they are fighting. Probably, some of the Frey's she'd just murdered were people who would have been kind to her if they'd met as strangers. It was a scene that highlighted the corruption of her moral character as it is consumed by vengence, and her awareness of that, judging by the thoughtful look on her face as she accepted the soldiers' hospitality. It also makes the audience question their support of her.

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves."

I do agree Sheeran's casting was jarring though. But I'd keep the scene and just lose him.

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.

Also, book nerds will tell you that the song is (Hands of Gold) has been in the books for some time, and its meaning is pretty important.

I agree that seeing someone you recognise may drag you out of the scene somewhat, but no-one complained when Lovejoy showed up and exactly the same thing happened. If his line to camera was rubbish, you should be annoyed at the director that let it through.

Perhaps the main issue I have with that scene is that she appeared to be riding a stealth horse, and was basically standing on one of their hands before anyone noticed her, even though she'd just clip-clopped over a wooden bridge.

Lovejoy is an actor. He appears in many things doing acting and doing it well.

I didn't complain when the fat bloke from The Full Monty turned up in season one either. Or that fella from Ronin that goes on about "RASBREH JAM"

And I'm not mad at Ed Sheeran because fuck it I would love to do it and would if given the opportunity - I am annoyed at the sheer length of it and him being in shot almost constantly. It was very distracting.

Then that's another reason for hatred! Ed said it was "a NEW song".

Shame! Shame! SHAME!

If you're at a free Ed Sheeran concert you're not going to be noticing anything on the periphery really. Their deaths are on him.
