Which episode? Now that we have someone seeing episodes before they're supposed to air, I don't know anymore. I just might need to stay out of here until after the season concludes.

The next one (episode 6) that was/will air this Sunday night. HBO themselves accidently leaked it in Spain or something like that and it got ripped.

I won't post any spoilers without tags until Monday. But it was truley an epic episode. Still buzzing from it..

I broke down and watched it. There were a few small quirks with the sound due to compression but otherwise it was near broadcast quality.

Now then, DAYUMMMM. Stuff happens.

I watched a 1080p version that was pretty much flawless...

I'll keep my opinion to myself.

I won't say a word till after it airs. But damn, it's hard not to talk about it.

I likely watched that same 1080p copy. The only gripe I had was that when they were outdoors beyond the wall, the wind sounded distorted and modulated. It was a small thing and didn't last long, but it was noticeable.

The link I found yesterday isn't there anymore. I literally just copied 'episode 6 leak' from Mex-Bucs post and googled it. 2nd link down was some path to watch it on vimeo w/ a password that was provided.

I'm sure it's out there somewhere. I'll see if I can find a link.

Great episode! Let's get this conversation and analysis going in here!

One thought from the episode: I'm pretty positive Arya is on to Littlefinger. Less sure that Sansa has caught on, but Arya is now playing a game vs Littlefinger.

Although it was spoiled, I did love the episode.


The one thing I did not love is that the writers completely didn't give a **** about time in this episode. It's always been questionable, but Gentry runs to the wall, they send a raven, and Dany flys back and finds exactly where they are with in hours (appears to be a single night). It makes better TV, but that was over the top even for GoT.

Still a great episode...lol.

Does Viserion (the wight Dragon) spit Ice or Fire? Since Viserion is now a 'wight', it should be able to be killed with Dragonglass, fire, or Valyrian steel.

Looks like Jon and Daenerys are going to get it on. He'll bend the knee after all.

How did they get the wight that they kidnapped south of the wall?? I thought the wall had magic powers to keep the dead from crossing?

I wish they would just settle the Winterfell drama with Littlefinger-Sansa-Arya.

Curious to see what trap(s) are set in next weeks finale during the meeting between Cersi, Daenerys, Jon, Jamie, Tyrion, etc.

Yeah, the took some liberties with the timing for sure. But another thing is why didn't Lord Beric use his fire sword to ensure the Ice stayed melted around them?

Or why didn't the hound just keep smashing the ice?

I mean we know the answer, to build drama.

That wasn't a single night. Pretty sure it was about 4 days.

Part of what we're seeing (e.g. why the Hound didn't just keep pounding the ice to keep it broken up) is what happens when a TV show gets ahead of the book(s) it is based on. Also, novelists are generally free to explain things in more detail because there is no time limit on what they write.

As for the time issue of getting a message to Dany and her arriving with her dragon, it's like PM said...they were stuck on that island for a few days, not just one night.

I agree even though I watched it last week. But I suppose there are ***holes out there that probably posted screenshots of a blue-eyed dragon.

I remember when the The Force Awakens was released and all the hysteria about the film. Some ***hole had made a comment in the comments section of some sports article about how Kylo Ren was the Son of Leah and Han Solo and that he killed Han Solo in the movie. I was pissed and it kinda ruined the movie experience for me.

I'm guessing Viserion will breath blue fire.

I knew it was going to happen, but it was still heartbreaking to watch Viserion go down like that. Watching his head sink back into the water was emotional.

Then I knew the Night King was going to "bring it back."

Ya'll are wondering about the time lapses....I wanna know where the wights got the huge chains. Lol.

Guessing we're going to have to wait a looooong time to see Viserion do battle with Drogon and Rhaegal.


Something I'm curious about...if I'm Dany, Jon and Tyrion, no way do I tell Cersei that one of the dragons died.

I thought the same thing about the chains they used to pull the dragon out of the lake. Where the **** did they get those?

No way I tell Cersi about the dead dragon. In fact it might be better to just bring Drogon and tell Cersi the other two are staying back so no questions are asked. If a trap is indeed set for Daenerys, having more than 1 dragon there wouldn't prevent it imo, and bringing all of them would put them all in danger potentially. All it would do is ensure more destruction if Daenerys was harmed.

So how did they get the wight they kidnapped south of the wall? I though the dead couldn't go south of the wall? edit*** NVM.. Apparently the magic doesn't apply if the wights are brought across the wall by the living, the magic only applies if they try and cross on their own.
