    Watched it with TV in vivid mode and could see fine with my old ~$500 tv...although could not tell which dragon was which. Also was streaming from HBO on good internet, so didn't have bad compression artifacts from a shitty cable company.

    It does seem like they will have an issue with numbers vs the hired army. Double if the north pulls out. I forgot how Cersei got money to hire the gold co, was it a loan?

    Why did the night king keep making a pattern that looked a lot like the dragon house logo? Misdirection?

    If I remember correctly, she paid off her loan from the Iron Bank with the gold she took from Highgarden. So now the Iron Bank is funding her again.

    My impression with all the Night King/Whitewalker vagueness is that the show creators want to leave those details up to Martin for the books. Maybe he hasn't fully created the back-story, etc. and so they just left it open for him.
    It sucks to suck.

    If I were an odds maker, I would seed the Elite 8 as Follows:
    1: Jon
    2: Dany
    3: Cersei
    4: Sansa
    5: Tyrion
    6: Bran
    7: Aria
    8: Jamie

    If we make a bracket: 1 v 8, 2 v 7. 3 v 6, 4 v 5, then we can do a pool. Let's say $25 each. We can also add in The Hound vThe Mountain as a side bet. Total wins gets the pot. In each match-up, it's who dies first. Anyone interested.

    Mine would look like this. 1v8: Jon. 2v7: Aria. 3v6: Bran. 4v5: Sansa.
    Next Round: 1v5: Jon. 7v6: Bran
    Final: 1v6 They both live
    The Hound v The Mountain: The Hound

    Caveat: This says nothing of Gendry, who has a legitimate claim to the throne.

    Per this 60 Minutes piece, the author is out of the loop and 'gave up his baby for adoption' a while ago and the writers are making the call. During the interviews after each episode, they clearly sound in control of the plot.

    There is some speculation that the Iron Bank is going to come into play in the end somehow.

    too much involvement from the beginning not to be a factor.
    She took out a loan to hire the Golden Company who are sell swords so who knows what their loyalties are or how they react when they see a dragon.

    & if the queen is dead ( say at the hands of a highly trained assassin?!?) who will be paying them?

    Gendry & Arya, king & queen at the end

    sansa gets the north & winterfell, but maybe hand of the king

    jon dies & danaerys loses her armies & dragons in the process of battles waged

    qyburn is somehow doused in wild fire

    Tyrion retires to casterly rock to grow grapes & be a wine baron

    jaime talks bronn into a retirement & dies by the mountain but kills cercei

    the hound wins cleganebowl by burning his zombie brother then becomes a gimpy pacifist vegan hermit

    bran stares sullenly, abandoned in the godswood, wondering if someone could roll him back to winterfell for dinner

    Maybe I’m reading into it too much but that similar little fart-sized wind that the white walker seemed to notice and it blew his hair a bit...same thing?
    She cuts the wick off with her sword for the waif kill.
    The WW hair thing is probably from her quietly flying by.

    Geek alert: Game of Thrones on HBO

    Not sure, but the Starks should move into their castle. Winterfell could be gifted to the Tormund and the Wildlings

    Just that they weren't there in the fight. No gothic armour to be seen. Maybe a Sansa card held in reserve?

    I thought there were a couple of dudes holding Shields with the bird symbol on them. I think it was during the mass retreat to the castle

    But not much of a force compared to the large amount of horse that came to the rescue in the battle of the Bastards. Just a thought. Will see tomorrow night.

    I was wondering: do Arya & Bran now have matching wrist burns from the Night King?
    I suppose Arya might have a neck burn now, too?
