That actor is sort of universally loved. He is not only a favorite of everyone you ask on the show, he was also a favorite for the cast of The Thing. He plays serious as well as comic which is why I think they have added things like him "giving the eye" to Brienne . . . whatever.

Tonight's episode was especially egregious for convenient off screen teleportation

Either that, or the entirety of Westeros is about five miles from one side to the other.

That and some serious thermal plot armor.

Still enjoyed it.

People who wear no hats in sub-zero weather, can fall into the snow, can fall into the water, and live.

You can also fly in such weather with no warm weather clothing either. However, still:

Danny was a bit less irritating. Arya is getting very irritating. Probably fits her character.

Why did you keep The Hound and Thormünkgdkurt separate for so long?

Yeah, it was like, "okay, motherfucker, what you gonna do now! What you gonna do now? Huh? Punk-ass bitch?!!"

"Oh . . . that? Uh . . . Fuck."

Then he was all, "you think that was all I could do? Child please!"

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

There's no spoiling the season finale while it is still playing.

Now Carr my boy's just playin' a little joke here!
He ain't in the box because of the joke played on him. He back-sassed a free man. They got their rules. We ain't got nothin' to do with that. Would probably have happened to him sooner or later anyway, a complainer like him. He gotta learn the rules the same as anybody else.

I thought ending the season with a musical number was a good touch. Who expected The Hound to have such a good singing voice?

Ned Stark coming back from the dead did seem a little contrived though.

And who would have guessed Hot Pie was a secret Lannister agent the whole time?

Yeah, but Littlefinger was Jaquen H'Gar?

I am not sure how they explain that, unless Jaquen followed Arya to Westeros and took over the face from another Faceless Man.

Question about the episode

Spoiler:
Was the undead dragon shooting a blue flame or ice energy beam of some sort? It didn't look like it was melting a wall but rather just shattering it with force.

I have no answer but I was wondering the exact same thing

Spoiler:
The gamer in me wants to think it it was some sort of ice energy beam, because that just sits better thematically with the wights

Yeah, that one requires explanation. That may be part of the Japanese Sad Fat Jet Fan's Original plan so it may have a long-winded explanation between descriptions of Tyreon's midnight snack. Or, more likely, they used it and figured in the next year the Nerds will argue about on Al Gore's Internetz and they will choose that one.

Spoiler:
I read an article with comment on this by the show producers (? writers? showrunners?); can't find it now, but apparently it is indeed fire. Just like wildfire is green, this fire is blue, but it's still fire. They hinted that (like wildfire) it may have some properties different from normal fire.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I have heard the term "blue fire" on more NERDS! NERDS! discussions, but no one seems to know exactly what it is. It seems to act like fire in that it destroys ice . . . though that does not make a lot of sense!

Finally finished the season.

Major question about the last episode

Spoiler:
Were Ayla ans Sasha or whatever, plotting to get the goods on littlefinger since Ayla came back?
It seemed like she was gathering info and that the bit with the knife in her room was dumbshow. It seemed like they were simply lulling littlefinger into a false sense of security so that they could nab him.

thoughts?
