Yeah it was, honestly surprised only Wun Wun and Rickon, Rickon wasn't even on my list of characters to die died to be honest. Sansa being her annoying self by withholding the info re Knights of the Vale coming back help leading thousands to die than possibly needed to. If any of it was disappointing it was the end and that's only because I'd built up my own ending to the episode, still a fantastic ending though.

Just watched it again because the repeat came on and I had nothing else to do and it was just as good the second time round. Easily one of the best episodes they've ever made, only one that comes close imo is Hardhome. The only downside I can think of is that it doesn't make much sense that Sansa wouldn't just tell Jon she had Littlefinger on the way, but I can forgive that since the rest of it was so good.
Looking forward to next week's finale, I have a few ideas for what the closing scene will be, leaning mostly towards either an LSH reveal (storming in on the Freys and Jaime), Tower of Joy getting finished and revealing R+L=J or "For the children" (although I'm beginning to doubt it seeing as Varys is probably going to Dorne to secure an alliance and I don't think there's much chance Qyburn will double cross Cersei anymore).

There is a lot of things they could end the series on, such as the ones you've just mentioned Rik and I do want to see "For the Children" played out on screen as well. Part of me is thinking well have a much bigger ending though (although finally confirming R+L=J would be huge) with everyone back on their way to Westeros (or they will be shortly, even Dany it seems) it'd be the perfect time for The Wall to fall (now Bran seems to have messed things up past The Wall, giving the White Walkers the power they need to pass/breakdown The Wall) and the winds of winter can finally sweep across the seven kingdoms, I'm thinking this as in Dany's vision in the house of the undying showed the throne room, vacant, run down (so no ruler to rule it anymore) and covered in snow, maybe this may become a reality sooner rather than later. I'm also getting a vibe maybe Tommen will be leaving as well, seems like Cersei and Qyburn are planning on using the wildfire under the Sept of Baelor to stop her trial, potentially killing Tommen in the process (as Cersei has to outlive her kids).

I agree it made little sense Sansa wouldn't mention about the Vale knights she had arriving soon.

If the LSH reveal doesn't happen now with Brienne and Pod it aint ever happening. Can see it ending on that or with winter arriving so we can have lol Ned Stark memes about how winter has come.

LSH isn't happening, man. Beric Dondarrion is still alive and the Hound pissing into the river was pretty clearly meant to be symbolic.

So with Tommen's death the last of the Baratheon have died. I can see the Lannisters being wiped out soon too, leaving only the Starks, whose name cam only carry on through Bran, and the Targaryens.

The Tyrells are screwed too. Cersei has single handedly ended several of the biggest houses in westeros. Unless her and Jaime can get away with more incest The starks might be the only house that survives the series.

Willing to bet he bumps into Arya and Melisandre next season.
Also, doesn't House Tyrell still have Willas and Garlan to carry on the line or do they not exist in TV-land?

They don't really seem to have introduced (or even mentioned) smaller members of the larger houses, what Cersei did was terrible for the heads of the houses but it doesn't wipe out them completely like Tywin did to house Reyne. The only houses its looking good for at the moment is House Stark, House Greyjoy and maybe House Targaryen. I suppose House Frey is pretty safe as well (with how many kids Walder has had) but who cares about House Frey? Unless Tyrion meets back up with Tysha (probably never going to happen in the series, might do in the books I suppose as he still thinks about her and where she would have gone) He'll probably never have any legitimate children.

As for Arya I presume she will head north, might meet up with Hot Pie, Lady Mel (on her way south) and (at a push) might even meet the likes of Gendry and Nymeria again (I really hope she finds Nymeria), a part of me really wants a Stark reunion at Winterfell at some point in series 7 but the other part of me knows this probably will never happen.

I've watched the finale 3 times now and I just love everything about it, just as good as episode 9. The music is spot on in every scene as well.

Can you imagine Nymeria's wolf pack coming to save Arya when it looks like she's going to get killed? I'd get all the feels.

If they did that with a bit of warg-dreaming for buildup I'd be hyped as gooseberry fool, the Starks need to up their direwolf game. They're doing shorter seasons from here on out which means they'll have more money for CGI for dragons and direwolves and eton mess so it's definitely something we could see happening.

I'm thinking that Jaime's going to end up seeing Cersei turn into Aerys 2.0, especially now that she's willing to use wildfire to kill off her enemies with huge collateral damage. Calling it now, there'll be a moment in S7 where he's forced to kill her to stop her blowing up the city as a last resort when Dany arrives.

It'll be interesting to see which brother ends up being the 'Volanqar' out of Jaime and Tyrion, I'm leaning to Jaime purely because of the similarities now happening between Cersei and Aerys but Tyrion has plenty of reasons to fulfil the prophecy.

Another interesting thing re Maggy's prophecy about the younger and prettier queen, could well be referring to Dany rather than Margery (who Cersei thought it was referring to) as Cersei now has everything she wants (ruler of the seven kingdoms), she may think she is safe (for now) as she has beaten parts of the prophecy. I'm leaning to Dany getting to Kings Landing early next season as in a vision we have seen a dragons shadow over KL so she can overthrow Cersei, I'm presuming this will happen before the volanqar makes himself clear.

The prophecy says that she will be choked to death, both brothers are going to have a hard time choking Cersei; what with Jaime only having one hand and Tyrion being at a size disadvantage. Unless he does a Shay.

And this time round I think Jaime might just let Cersei blow everything to smithereens, he's pretty tired of fighting and I think his love for her is too strong for him to actually kill her. It'd be a poetic death, her and Jaime engulfed by the flames. It'd fit with the vision Dany had of arriving at the burned throneroom.

Had the urge to start reading the books again so I found myself bringing 'A Game of Thrones' on holiday with me, safe to say I'm loving reading them again (even though I'm only half way through book 1), feel like I'm picking up on lots of little bits that I didn't first time through which is nice. Just getting me more excited for book 6 than anything.

Rereading ASOIF is something I've been meaning to do for a while but I have enough books to get through already. Maybe when WoW gets an actual release date I'll get round to it

I thought I'd try and play it a little safe by starting them now, just in case WoW actually releases in early 2017. I have loads of other books to get through as well, ASOIAF just seems to take priority though.
