Yeah, quite disappointing. And they only 14 episodes to wrap up the whole story. C-.
this was all setup for the remainder of the episodes this season. gotta remind everyone what's going on. i suspect things will start to advance quickly next week.

No need to see the whole season. Just watch the last episode. That's the GoT model: 9 dull and slow pace episodes plus one final huge climax. I've always find this show quite unsignificant, boring UK actorship being the main problem with a weak narrative.

Yet again the Brits are ruining a good thing.

Nope, the 2nd to the last episode is the best one due to the action scenes. I do agree that with such limited time, they do tend to just...goof off with screen time.

Can someone explain why Jorah (?) is just locked up? I am sure he is there to look for a cure but guess he's turned too much. I was hoping he'd come back cured.

Kaleesi has a serious intel problem. Who's the leaker?
And what about the time line? How fast do these people move, given that Westeros is about the size of the UK they seem to reach far away places in relatively short time.

i think she just got out maneuvered, but this:

is something that's been bugging me. the ocean is supposedly a vast place that dragons cannot possibly cover, yet Euron can get from one side to blow up Asha's fleet to the other to blow up Khaleesi's fleet all while dropping Euron off at kings landing?

There are a couple of things that don't add up. Like Euron's new fleet built in record time and from what? Where do they get the wood from? If the iron islands are like the Hebrides then there is hardly any usable vegetation (trees) available.

Plus, according to the Westeros map, there is no way to get to the Lannister lands using ships unless you want to sail around half of Westeros.

I enjoy watch this Euron character develop but I don't think I will hate him like I hated Joffrey or Ramsey. I love how he bashes Jaime.

Now as Scherensammler Scherensammler has mentioned, I don't know how Euron was able to get the Iron Fleet so fast. What's a bit more confusing is how Euron went from King's Landing to Casterly Rock so dang quickly, given the geography. Dang, I am turning into a nerd.

Lastly, I could not stand Dani when she kept demanding Jon to bend the knee. The constant demand for the knee was absolutely annoying. So far, I am unimpressed with the season but the upcoming episode is supposed to have a lot of battle scenes...with fire.

the best theory is that euron just sailed back himself and sent the rest of the fleet on to do the other shit. i just can't understand how he ended up blowing up danny's fleet in two different places seemingly across the continent at the same time.

That's the most rational explanation that I have heard thus far.

...too bad Euron didn't just drop by Dragonstone.

More thoughts/question:
- What can the Iron Bank do if the Lannisters default on their loan?
- Can't wait for the Jorah and Dani reunion
- Really? The Martells men couldn't put a dang fight against the Lannisters?
- The folks at Dorne will just sit on their asses and do nothing?

then cersei can't pay her soldiers or buy food, i assume.
- Can't wait for the Jorah and Dani reunion
i'm eagerly awaiting his meeting with the little mrs. bear queen.

birds of a feather i suppose.

No, my question was more on can the Iron Bank use force if the Lannisters default. My guess is that the Iron Bank will just start funding their enemies and get paid after the Lannisters are dead. Just not sure what powers the Iron Bank has.

Gentlemen,
Any predictions or things you would like to see in the next episode? I would like for Dani to outsmart Cersei for once.

They showed a lot of treasure chests with gold and jewels when the Lannister army defeated the Tyrells. So I guess that's how the debt will be paid back.

Seems like the trailers show dragons and the Doraki forces attacking the Lannister + Tarly forces. So they may end up losing the treasures. The Tarlys all die and Jaime with Bronn escape narrowly. There is a reunion between Tyrion and Jaime but Tyrion fails to get Jaime on Dani's side. All unconfirmed leaks but we'll see what happens.

This season bores me. Condensing the story and drama too much. Now I'm a) watching just because it is almost done, and I have watched for so long so whatever 2) waiting until the next book(s) come out.

Apparently the episode Sunday really kicks things into gear. It's been leaked online.

good episode this week. what do we think happens to jaime?
There's a leak that says Tyrion tries to talk Jaime into "bending the knee" to Dani. But based on that last scene, I don't know how he could have pulled himself up with all that heavy armour from the river.

I enjoyed the last battle scene and was kind of mad that it was only 40 min long as opposed to 70 min or so. I was hoping the attack would stop the gold from reaching Kings Landing but it appears it was long gone before Dani's forces arrived. I think my ears are bleeding from hearing Dani tell Jon to bend the knee. She did it in the cave again.

The gold thing is a bit weird. Perhaps the carriages were escorted by cavalry and could travel faster than the infantry.
Also, did they expect a dragon attack? Otherwise there can be no reason to have that huge crossbow around. Also, unless Bronn has practised with it massively, there is no chance to hit a moving target that is quite far away. He was also way too easily capable to tension the crossbow. So either he had an awesome transmission built in or the arrow would not have made it far enough.

Yep, that gets annoying big time. Kind of answers Fwiffo's question about why men have to give up their pride for love.
She's lucky Jon isn't old school Italian (or worse: a Muslim) or she would have suffered the consequences right there in that cave. But then again, she eventually fell in love with guy who constantly raped her. Probably feminist's wet dream.

Apart from that the dragon scenes were absolutely awesome and I hope there will be more in the future.

I am going to be pretty bummed out if the Iron Bank gets paid.

There are too many things that do not make sense. The Dothraki forces teleported to where the Lannisters were? As you've said, Bronn knowing how to work that "scorpion" weaponary against Drogon doesn't make sense. Bran just not giving rats ass about anything and isn't doing anything...or is he. He gave that sword to Arya for a reason and said to Littlefinger that phrase for a reason. I am just not sure what Bran is doing.

They took some liberties with that machine as well. When the Dothraki got nailed to a carriage the arrow did not even penetrate the wood, yet we are to believe that it flies hundreds of meters and can hurt a dragon.
Also, that lake got really deep very close to the banks.
Overall the travel time doesn't match the distances. Westeros is allegedly 3000 miles long from The Wall to the southern coast of Dorne and about 1000 miles at it's widest point. So just travelling from King's Landing (or Casterly Rock) would take weeks. And you cannot hide a large army when you are moving through enemy territory. Plus I'm sure all houses have spies in King's Landing and other big cities.

You're preaching to the choir my friend. They are starting to get sloppy and messy with the TV show. But all we can do is just watch and try to enjoy.

I can't wait for Jorah to come back to Dani only find Jon banging her now. Or is Jon stuck on "ginger?" I am looking forward to Gendry's come back after rowing for some gosh darn long time.

Jon Snow is a Stargaryen and AFAIK Dani is his aunt (her older brother being his father). But then, the Targaryens favoured incest, so you could be right.
Saw a group photo of the GoT cast and could hardly believe how short Kit Harrington is in real live.
