(I just hope Jonathan Pryce's godawful annoying character gets the eye gouge/head rip treatment off him.)
think Cersei will see that he does

another great episode, and what an ending! Dany is not my favourite character but when she is good she is superb. Fire and Blood!

setting up nicely for some epic battles.

roll on next week

Loved the scene with Brienne telling Sir Davos and Melisandre about executing Stannis.

In a perfect world they would have their own spin off show.

I must say, I'm finding the Many Faced God storyline boring and pointless.

Good episode though. The Boob Counter is high this series haha.

I like the idea of what it could be but it just seems to be going round in circles and dragging on. Is she ready, isn't she ready, is she ready?...... and so on.

I love the Faceless Men scenes, Arya and Jaqen are brilliant characters and they are quite unique in that there is still an element of mystery about them even for those of us that have read the books.

It's completely open in what way it could go for Arya, and Jaqen (and the Faceless Men) are still something of an unknown quantity - what is their ultimate goal, what do they want with Arya, will they feature in the end game?

Can see why some think the scenes are drawn out, but that's how it is in the books, perhaps they should show her other training and not just the combat?

In some way the show makers are in a no win situation, Arya is one of the five key characters so has to maintain a prominent role, so they either make stuff up or jump ahead in her story arc but then she is out of sync with the others.

From reading the plot synopsis of upcoming episodes it looks like it will change soon anyway.

I loved the episode, except for that 'play'. Found that to be too long and boring. And seriously, how necessary was the penis wart scene?
Still my favorite show to date though. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
