Who was it that saved Jamie at the last? Was it Bronn or Dickon or someone else?

Bet it was Bronn.

How much longer until Dany learns Jon is a relative, and how would that affect her "destined to rule them all" mindset?

Because Jon would have just as much of a claim to the throne.

I think the legitimacy of Jon's claim to the throne rests almost entirely on whether his parents Rhaegar and Lyanna were married. He's either the rightful heir to the throne, or he's ten times the bastard we thought he was.

Quite apart from that, Jon Snow is probably the most miserable looking King of Anything that Westeros has ever seen. You tell him he's in line for the Iron Throne, and he'll be like 'Fuck That Noise.'

And if I remember my GOT canon correctly, the Targaryen Dynasty was forged through generations of incest in the first place, so it wouldn't be completely unheard of if Jon and Dany became kissing cousins.

So, other than Cersei, who else is left on Arya's list?

Red woman, Ned's executioner (Like he has a choice who he executes, poor guy was just doing his job.), Berric and Thoros, and The Mountain.

Bet she takes Mountain as The Hounds fighting him.

Good old dimwitted Gilly - it appears we have our answer. If Lyanna Stark was the woman Rhaegar married in the clandestine ceremony in Dorne, then that would make Jon Snow the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

They snuck that one in!  Sam basically talked over her while she was giving the line.

In Breaking Bad, I was always bummed that we never got a scene with both Jesse and Walter Jr. Maybe the TV gods make it up to me with GoT - before this wraps, I want to see a reunion between Arya and Syrio Forel. I know Arya thinks he's dead, but I don't believe we saw him die back in Season 1, so TV rules of character demise apply, I believe.

Kit Harrington is great, but it's almost comical how little he's able to convey this supposed infatuation with Dany. Thank The Gods we have Tyrion and Ser Davos to "notice" this for our benefit, because Jon Snow never doesn't look absolutely miserable.

Gendry is awesome. The touring party does their Lewis and Clark routine north of the wall for what seems like weeks, and Gendry's able to make it back to Eastwatch in 25 minutes flat.

Why is Arya suddenly being such a twit?

With addition of his latest draft pick (Zombie Ice Dragon), the Night King is now -350 to finish on the Iron Throne.

Plot Twist: The children of the forrest are the true bad guys, and the Night King will be the one to save the world from them.

Littlefinger's death scene was incredible.

The Wall is down!

I wonder how book readers will react to Jon being Aegon...

Did I misinterpret, or did Cersei order the Mountain to kill Jamie, and then they let him walk away?

Just learned an interesting bit of gossip. It seems that Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Lena Headey (Cersei) were previously a couple IRL, and now are no longer on speaking terms - to the extent that Headey won't even have him on set when she's working.

I thought they were going to make an exception last night in the dragon pit, until Bronn suddenly decided to invite Podrick out for a pint, just before Cersei arrived.

It just occurred to me that, as good as last night's closing scene was, it would've been mind-blowing if we had NOT been shown the last scene of the previous week's show.

You know how Sam's master was casually acceptant of the monsters beyond the wall, and claimed if it kept them out a thousand years, it should keep doing so?

All Jon's efforts at doing something accomplished, was to bring the key to the wall right to the Night King.

Talk about your unintended consequences.  I thought the old guy was a fool, but turns out he knew exactly what the situation was.  The Wall would have stopped them.

It really sucks when you do realize that, if Snow and Co. just decided to take King's landing with the 3 dragons they would obliterate Cersi and Co. and the night king would be stuck staring at the wall.  It's all your fault (ex) bastard!

Also makes you rethink Jon's coming back, and the powers that wanted it..

Everyone lives happily ever after?  Arise!
