    Finale almost here. Bad news: might be over a year before we see anything new.

    UMMM, Wow! Did not see that going down like that!

    I hoped that's where they were going with the Stark sisters, but nice!

    Fast forward on the Night King stuff, hard to believe that it wasn't a trap after that scene.

    Yep. All of it being a trap makes the most sense.

    Please explain this trap theory.

    As in, let them sit on island until what we want shows up so we can capture it.

    That the Night King has been biding his time all along to lure the strength of the living (Dragons) north in order to obtain one for himself - taking down the wall shows why. While raising the army of the dead, they always let a few survivors get away to spread word of their existence, knowing sooner or later, the forces south of the wall would try to attack. A side theory is that the Night King has similar or the same power that Bran has, so he's aware the dragons exist.

    Ahhh... I had misunderstood and thought the reference was to a trap being set for the night king, thus my confusion. Agree 100% on the trap set for dragons. He had certainly been practicing his javelin throwing.

    was it foreshadowing when we see Tyrion in the hallway of the ship watching Jon go into her room? Like he cut a deal with his sister for her help that involved betraying Jon Snow but serves his queen.

    Or he's worried that an affair now serves as too much of a distraction...

    Or he's joining Jorah in House Friend Zone (Occam's Razor)

    Or he is realizing that a succession plan does not include him?

    I'd say he's actually hoping for this so he does have a viable plan if she dies....

    Just watched the last episode again...I don't have a copy of the one I watched before, but I think there's added dialog in it now.

    The Sansa/Littlefinger conversation seems more developed. The Sam/Bran conversation is extremely detailed.

    Maybe I'm remembering it wrong though...

    Oh heck yeah!
    So glad to see HBO finishing this series. GRRM won't ever finish the books (which I have read twice now) so I am gonna enjoy the hell out of this season.

    Out of interest, can you bet on this in the US? In the UK bookies seem certain that Bran will rule Westeros....

    Sorry, mate. I'm not much of a gambler, so I have no idea. That said, your lot across the pond will wager on anything. Vegas rules here, and I don't see them taking bets on TV shows.

    Your bookies are going to eat it. ;)
