Holy crap. This has to be the best episode of the season or even the show. There was so much fun stuff here. We finally get a good foil for Danny with Tyrion, you won’t beleive what Sansa learns about her brothers, who the hell is Lana and where is Cat, and the most epic battle of the show so far. As if that wasn’t enough, spoiler zone returns this week as we discuss the possible fates of our favorite characters. It feels great to have hope for this show again.

    • Also i think jon was trying to be a warrior and honorable not being like a southerner. Mercy prolly doesnt work well with wildling that well… made totally sense to me. Also the white walkers clothing dissapears when he shatters, so its just magic prolly to look more threatening.

      • Yeah id be bored as hell if they showed evey piece of a skeleton
        animated, also it would be soooo expensive to animate.

        the night king is prolly so old he is like nah i dont need armor.

  1. Apologies if this was mentioned. I haven’t listened to the show yet.
    Kennstan- Yes the knight king is old. If I read correctly it’s actually Bendon stark like the 13th lord commander of the nights watch who fell I love with a white female back in the day. For time reference Jon is like commander 999 or something. That was a stark on stark stair down at the end which made it even “cooler”

  2. I think it is likely, that the Wights are not able to enter the water.

    We already know they do not like fire, and most likely they do not like water either.

    If we are talking elements, I guess the force animating them, draws their power from the Earth, and if they enter the water, they would be disconnected from that power, and go limb.

  3. Re: Wights in the water
    I think it is equally likely that the Night’s King simply wasn’t that pressed to chase after the few survivors in the water and was going for the intimidation move of “you may get away now, but I control the dead; you simply can’t run far or fast enough to escape an army that doesn’t get tired…I’ll catch you at the Wall…”

  4. I think that the zombie children were that woman’s siblings there’s a throw away line where the Fenn asks her about the Crows killing her siblings.

  5. Tim and his fifty-third “Smart Guy” reference of the year is absolutely fucking incredible. Give that man a podcast Emmy now!
