And we’re back! After over a year we finally have some new Game of Thrones to discuss. Let’s jump right into the power rankings:
The Mother of Dragons has made it all the way to Dragonstone. For now she has a massive coalition ready to burn cities to the ground. This would be great if only there weren’t a zombie horde waiting to pounce up north.
They’re still coming. With zombie giants. At least Jon has the North convinced that they’re real.
I think Sansa underestimated the effectiveness of good cop/bad cop. Does she really think those kids will cross Jon when his sister/cousin has made it clear she’d rather sell of their homes and exile/hang them? It’s clear people get second chances with Jon. No one gets a third with Sansa around. Meanwhile, Bran and Arya are still out there. Arya has a mission and skills granted, but she’s heading in the wrong direction.
Jaime is right, they don’t look like the winning side. Where does he go when his sister ultimately fails?
How long has the Hound had the ability to see into the flames? He’s been scared of fire all his life so we may never know.
You may have as many ships as Daenerys, Crow’s Eye, but she has three dragons and last I checked your ships are made of wood.
Hitching your wagon to a bigger horse is a good strategy, but for these houses it’s an imperfect solution. What happens when Littlefinger turns on Jon or the Sand flakes turn on Tyrion? House Tyrell is a better bet to stay in its coalition, but they’re vulnerable to Crow’s Eye hitting them from the west.
Bowls for poop, bowls for soup, either way we don’t have time for Sam’s training montage and neither does he. The faster he gets out of the Citadel the better.
Also receiving votes: Essos, Ser Jorah, Ser Pounce, big maps on floors and tables, snappier banter, poisoned wine, the obsidian throne, and maybe our last “table setting” episode.
