The entire Jon reveal is completely lost on me as I absolutely forget about who any of those people were.. who is the sister, who was her husband, what marriage was annulled? These people were introduced so long again that I'd have to revisit a family tree online to get a handle on it.

The sister was Ned Starks sister. The husband was one of the children of the Mad King, Dany had two brothers, him and the guy we see with her in the earlier seasons. Obviously there was some age difference.

So Neds sister and Danys older brother made Jon Snow, therefor Dany is his aunt/he is her nephew. So he both has the blood that makes those people special when it comes to dragons and shit, and if it even matters any more, has some sort of rightful claim to the throne.

Seeing as how a big old war was going on back then, Jon was in danger of being killed, so Ned pretended his sisters child was his own bastard child.

  • I don't buy the whole Jon and Dany relationship. Everyone always talks about how he spent so much time staring at her, but we don't see him doing that much outside of when they were talking and of course he would fucking stare at her because they're talking. But I digress, I also don't feel like they spent enough time together to warrant such a strong attraction other than the fact they're two attracitve people who both happen to be single...sooooo I'm just going to assume that this is more them being super horny and there were no other options. That said, I'm still enjoying it in a fanboy/girlish sorta way, but I won't pretend it was earned.

I'm with you on that. If there is one thing the swiftness of this season affected negatively for me, it was that in any other season we probably would have had more time for actual chemistry between them. Every scene between them felt necessary, there was nothing between them because they had to be together to talk or plot or do what they needed to do.

There wasn't really any moments of them being together because they enjoyed it.

I'm fine it ended up this way however, with 6 episodes left ever it's not something that is going to drag on, and with all of the cool shit we'll get next season, them being together isn't going to be the thing I pay attention to I'm sure.

Despite all the plot armor/people getting out of situations these past few seasons they may not normally. This episode still had me nervous for Jaime.

Theon got his balls back. Metaphorically.

They had me nervous they were really sticking with this Sansa vs Arya thing, so I'm glad that resolved the way it did. I was kind of expecting Little Finger to make it until the very last season, but he was running low on plot steam anyways, so makes sense.

Game of Thrones is the only show that reveals two characters are related while showing them lovingly boning. I'm glad they didn't hold out that reveal for the very ending 'cut to black' or for next season. I get why it was the last episode, and why the characters took this long to figure it out, I'm just glad they didn't treat us like complete idiots and go "OH GOT YOU DIDN'T WE?" They knew we all knew, great reveal. Plus Bran and Sam was great. "I became the Three Eye Raven." Fucking haha.

Cerseis great plan was to... not do the thing she said she would do. Kay.

The music was great this season, a lot of sweet theme re-dos and call backs.

So people keep saying 'winter is here' but nooooooooow it's here right? The wall is down so nooooooooow it's here.
Also no body no kill, Tormund and fire guy whose name I forget are probably okay somehow, at the very least Tormund.

Man, the wait for next season is sure going to be something.

SO CLOSE YOU GUYS.

I don't know what I want from this episode, but I'm excited. With all of the major characters gathering and the swiftness of the story, I can only imagine what big thing it's going to end on then make us wait another bloody year for 6 episodes to see the resolution of.
It would be a bit too convenient for everyone to just buddy up and face the threat to the North, Cersei is gonna have to have something up her sleeve.

I'm also thinking they'll save the zombie dragon for next year. If we do see it in action this episode though, I'm betting it will just be to kill off the other dragon we don't know the name of to show it's a threat. Though it being a zombie dragon is big enough threat already so I dunno.

One hour. I'm as pumped as the mountain. Not physically of course.

I don't know if it counts as assuming the player failed, but it does assume the player went with the bad ending in Metro: Last Light.
In Metro 2033 you can get the destroy ending, which basically means you don't pick up on any of the signals the Dark Ones, have been sending you about what you need to do, and you wind up killing all but one of them. This is the bad ending of the game, and this is the one Last Light goes off of.

So far I've not been let down by an Age of Empires game (though 2 wololo's my heart) so I shall remain cautious but excited.
I wonder if they

Makes me wonder what era in history they'll go with, or will it be like Civilization where its goes from one historic era to the next?

That's what I'm wondering about too. I think I'd like for it to stick to one era (give or take the tech advances within said era of course) but I'm curious if they'll go the route of 3 and bring it into the future some more, or go back to medieval stuff or what.
Whatever it may be, fingers crossed.

It was cloudy, and nothing happened, then it stopped being cloudy much later after people said stuff should have happened.
I watched it on a live stream, sort of, in the background.
I'm not too bummed I missed it, I like meteor showers better personally.
But it's cool for people that got to and wanted to see it.

I didn't make it :(

Alas, you were striken by the death.

@atastyslurpee: Hah, thanks.

I can't believe the last episode (of this season) is going to be so soon. I mean, you can see where they are pouring the money into with the shorter episode count, but what a wait this is going to be after next Sunday.

It's a day one game for me (well, my mail is delayed by a day, so day two game technically).
However I don't expect it to be better than UC4, that was the big final send off of the whole thing.
I'm sure this will be good, but it feels like watching the deleted scenes of a movie, it's cool it's more of the movie, and the movie was rad, but I'm not more excited for the deleted scenes than I was for the movie itself.

I've wanted to see Dragons versus Ice Zombies for a while. Check.
I've wanted a Zombie Dragon so the Dragons have to fight each other at some point. Check.

It wasn't a perfect episode, this whole Arya vs Sansa thing is dumb, but I assume it will resolve well enough so whatever.
And let's be honest, if this was like the original few seasons, someone else would have died tonight, the plot armor has been strong this season, but yet, I didn't want them to die. Sooooooo fine.

I feel like the show sort of switched gears, and I'm fine with that, the first few seasons were "Look at how smart we are, and also we are going to promise you cool shit, but never give it to you."
Now it is "Look at all this cool shit we promised you! Also lots of somewhat dumb stuff now." They didn't master both at the same time, but they mastered both separately. So now we are in the 'wasn't that fucking rad?' phase and yes.
Despite all that, it's still smarter than a shit load of other shows anyways, sooo pffff.

Someone with visual effects skills are going to have to put the Dark Souls hud over the scenes where the fire guys light up their swords.
