I'd like to learn more about the dragons. I know Martin was working on a prequel to GoT (History of Westeros if I'm not mistaken.) That'd be enjoyable, especially if he goes more in depth about how the previous dragons went extinct and how often they can be bred or birthed, etc.

Sure, they're tough but they aren't immortal.

So is there a secret kind of potion or black magic that kills them that the book alludes to?

 

Should this be in the other thread?

I still think Bran will have something to do with the dragons.

No they can be killed just like the direwolves or giants have been killed.  Obviously takes a bit more to take down a large dragon than a direwolf or even a giant, but it doesn't have to be done via any particular sort of magic.  Kind of like Smaug, tough, but not mystical.

I think this was my favorite episode of the entire season the more I think about it.

 

It was just perfect in every aspect.

I was worried it would end with a cliffhanger, where Ramsay either escapes or he's able to start a siege in the castle. I am glad they wrapped up that storyline in the episode...much more gratifying to have it end where it did.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Yea, I basically said to myself that Ramsay had to die this episode.

 

When Sansa said "tomorrow you die" I figured his fate was sealed.

 

What a great way for him to go out.

Hold the door and Snows' revival were amazing episodes too. Tough for me to say.

It has been a great season though.

And that with no books to work off of.

It has been a good season for reveals of story points, but I do think one could argue that the setups and the dialogue have not been as good as they were in earlier seasons.

Love this director, Hardhome and now this? Maybe the best action filmed for TV, at least that I've seen. Episodes 2, 5, and now 9 have been standouts but this was definitely my favorite. Probably say 2 second then 5. Pleasantly surprised by this season after not caring much for last year. Hope they nail the finale. 4th favorite season as of now.

Yeah Miguel Sapochnik? has been on point. I think this show more than any other depends on its director in crucial moments and he hasn't disappointed. When I saw he was directing these final episodes I got an erection. .

Somehow I made it til now without being spoiled. Not that anything surprising happened. Very action packed episode without any filler, which is great. I was actually more into the Meereen scenes than the Winterfell stuff, but entertaining all around.

I was watching the battle scene again last night and I was still on the edge of my seat when Snow was gasping for air.

Confirm the major fan theory they teased that they were going to confirm earlier in the season.
