    Well...

    That happened.

    That was one of the most stressful Hour and Twenty minutes of television I have ever watched.

    I may have an ulcer come morning.

    That Battle of Winterfell was a whole lotta strategic stupid. Why the he'll would you waste cavalry like that? Why the he'll would you post your forces in an open field like that? Why didn't they stay behind the freaking walls?!?!

    To be fair the books haven't gotten to this point, plus George R.R. for the most part keeps the battles in the book accurate in regards to medieval warfare

    I know it's a long time since I read the last book that Martin wrote but I think the TV show has deviated from where the books were headed. But the only person that knows how the books will end is Martin and I doubt he'll ever finish them.

    I think that if medieval warfare has shown anything it's that, unless you are stupidly well provisioned, you can't hide inside the walls while an enemy surrounds you. Sieges were horrible events in history, add the army of the dead to that mix and it makes it so much worse.

    True, not gonna lie I found the crypt scene kinda ironic since there was a fan theory that the previous Starks in the crypt would rise up and aid the living, turned out it was the opposite, they "Ate" the living.

    I thought they laid the plan out pretty clearly in episode 2 that the only way to win the war was to kill the Night King and the only way to kill the Night King was to use Bran as bait. The strategy was all about leaving Bran exposed to lure the Night King out.

    So now that Danearys and Jon have 25k fewer soldiers than they did last week, this is where the Lannister army arrives to 'help', destroys Winterfell ending the Stark and Targaryn (sp?) line. Cersei thinks she's won which is where Arya offs her and wears her face thus meaning that Arya becomes de facto Queen of King's Landing, right? Smile

    Me personally? No. But when you read the books, it's very obvious that Tyrion is George RR Martin's favourite character, while on the TV show, it's Arya. I'll be the one rooting for Cersei Smile

    Well since he hasn't written the final books yet. They have to make some things up, lol. Martin even stated the show ending is going to be different than the book.

    Didn't she loose another dragon too? The one Jon was riding?

    I wasn't expecting them to kill the night king in winterfell itself to be honest. I thought this fight would escalate till King's landing.

    Didn't she loose another dragon too? The one Jon was riding?
    Jon's Dragon (Rhaegal) is seen briefly in the Episode 4 preview flying over Winterfell with Sansa looking on, but its wing is damaged.

    I wasn't expecting them to kill the night king in winterfell itself to be honest. I thought this fight would escalate till King's landing.
    Yeah the idea of a three sided battle at Kings Landing would have been an interesting one. The Night King V Cersei V Danearys et al, kinda like the Battle of the Five Armies scene in the The Hobbit where the Dwarves face off V The Elves then the Orcs show up Suspicious

    Oh - haven’t seen that yet. Will do that later today when I’m home. I just watched the third episode, yesterday.
