I would think so. Not that anyone will care after what that family did. I am sure that will get out. She took out all of the men. Who gets that castle when all is said and done?


Yeah, I doubt anyone would care about the freys but it's more about people discovering just how ruthless Arya really is.

The thing about the tv show is you can only predict items that won't require a lot of stray buildup time at this point. Can't imagine we will see large sideplots start to be developed at this point in the season.

Noah Syndergaard with the cameo in the last episode...

"Wow, did you watch Game of Thrones last night? Wow! With the dragons, and the...elves? Elves, probably. And orcs, no doubt, seeking to regain the One Ring. And the TARDIS. Wow. (I don’t watch the show.)

Minor spoiler below.

If you were watching very closely, you spotted Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard in a cameo as a Lannister soldier, hurling a spear to take out a Dothraki horseman."

You know, as much as I love the show I really hope they do a (very, very) high quality animated series in the future that captures everything in the story/books.

Look at all of the artwork depicting the books online to see what I mean.

Was there anyone who complained about Podrick's lack of character development last episode yet?

Pretty much Podrick, Littlefinger and even Davos are stuck doing absolutely nothing.

Well I wasn't. This is a legit point. How many repetitive scenes can you have:

1. Podrick getting his arse handed to him by Brienne with no progression.

2. Littlefinger speaking in creepy tongues to Sansa and nothing.

3. Davos really doing nothing but keeping the grammar Nazi gag going.

Give me more meaningful scenes dedicated towards other characters.

You want to devote screen time to side characters like Podrick in the final episodes of the show, got it.

No he isn't. He was willing to sacrifice his life because he saw an opportunity to end the war by killing Dany. He came extremely close to doing it.

Maybe Podrick just isn't meant to be a fighter? Not everyone has that ability. And it's not like that scene took a lot of time. It segwayed into that scene with Arya, which was pretty damn cool.

I think the point of Littlefinger getting nowhere with Sansa is to show that he's boxed into a corner. He really doesn't have many options left and his days are numbered. Which makes him even more dangerous. He miscalculated his position by supporting her. He can't withdraw his support and the Lords of the Vale would never attack the Starks in Winterfell. I'm curious to see what his hail mary attempt will be.

Davos is a sidekick to Jon at this point. it remains to be seen whether or not he's going to be doing something on his own.

IMO, killing Dany would only escalate it....then you have Dathraki going straight at KL without anyone to tell them to stop, not to mention a pissed of dragon (all while his two brothers are just resting for battle)......not to mention Grey Worm would still be pissed, and the Imp isn't exactly on the Lannister side anymore. Killing Dany hardly ends anything, it just makes things more chaotic and bloody.
