Some wild differences of opinion here (see Cersei in particular). Obv sub-£10 max for most of these but some fun discussion to be had where in theory anything could happen...

Who can put a face to every name on that list? I reckon i knew 2/3rd's at best.

I got to Gendry before I had to use Google

For most years I've referred to everyone as 'fire bitch' and 'dragon bitch' and 'penisless bloke'



Believe it or not, i instantly knew all of them. But i am a total GOT geek

I know all of them apart from 'character played by Jim Broadbent'

I'd probably know the character if someone can tell me his name in the show though.

Also a confirmed GOT geek.

I don't think he's been in it yet. Assume it means he's rumoured to pop up as a new character in this series.

Stayed up to watch the new series premiere last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Best described as a 'moving the chess pieces' episode as the alliances were solidified and strengthened.

Highlights:
Samwell's storyline in the Citadel, including the introduction of Jim Broadbent as the Arch-Maester.
The Hound's early experiences as part of the Brotherhood without Banners, facing upto some of his former demons.
Tormund's latest interaction with Brienne providing a bit of ongoing humour.

Lowlights:
Ed Sheeran's cameo appearance not resulting in an horrific on-screen death.

Mysteries:
Why are the Citadel allowing Gilly and little Sam to live with him during his training?  I thought the Citadel was strictly a 'no women allowed' venue, but they appear to have forgotten this.

Great start to the new series. Unfortunately for me someone in my fantasy league already has a very substantial lead.

In theory with less episodes there shouldn't be many filler episodes, should be a lot of action. Sheeran cameo was a little random

I enjoyed seeing Jim broadbent and Thomas Turgoose featuring, although I imagine turgoose was just another cameo role, alongside Ed sheeran.

Also, I bloody love the hound. What a chatacter

Great episode but the Ed Sheeren thing really took me out of it, did he win a competition?

It was an utterly unnecessary scene. But he is the future king of everything ever. So makes sense I guess.

I suppose the thing wIth the ginger busker is they probably thought it was the same as previous musical cameos (Sigur Ros, yer man from Radiohead) but giving him lines to badly deliver and close ups for him to look gormless in really broke the atmosphere and was hugely clunking.

Thought Euron was really good when he was chatting Cersei up. The look he gave the mountain as he climbed the steps then stopped in his tracks was priceless.

Expecting good things from him after being disappointed with him last season. Nice to see he's toned the accent down a touch as well.

It was an utterly unnecessary scene. But he is the future king of everything ever. So makes sense I guess.

It was terrible directing - the close ups were practically screaming, "LOOK, LOOK WHO IT IS!!!"

I'd like the scene to be part of the plot development but I'm not sure it is, and if it is it might be minor.

I'd write it as Arya realises that the common people are actually quite good and it's only the noble houses that are rotten (this might be the level they do write it as if that scene leads anywhere).

But I think building on that, she could then become a new centre of power as she builds up a 'people's army' to try and build a socialist utopia in the seven kingdoms. Obviously finishing with her being killed by one of her most trusted commanders because (a) they want to be in charge instead of her and (b) because she's a noble - so still part of the problem.

The only other thing I'd like to see at some point is a dragon get a wing injured so it can't fly then have to take on the zombie horde at ground level - dragon versus zombie giant would be a good matchup Smiley

Good God. Ed Sheeran shoehorned into an episode and clunking around like some am dram actor with gratuitous singing

no more of that nonsense please

might have made sense if she had disembowelled the lot of them
