    The plan was for Bran to lure the Night King to him and he was to be at that tree.

    It never stopped the Targaryens in the past. It's far enough apart that it shouldn't matter.

    Overall I dug the episode.
    A bit Hollywood, sure but I can forgive that. I am still struggling with the cheese that is Jon and Daeny being dragon jockeys. The dragons were cool until they started placing the humans on them.

    I enjoyed Jorah getting his moment to stand and fight for his queen. Also, Arya going all HAM on the wight walkers when Clegane was having his crisis was fun.

    I read that while it was intentionally filmed "dark", the compression from streaming made it much worse. It was suggested that it will appear quite good on blue ray and DVD.

    In a couple of states here, it's even legal.

    She died an excellent death, but yeah, she is a great young actress it seems and I hope she is putting some money away for when she's older. I absolutely loved her character, she really embodied "the North" as well as any and better than most.

    I've seen that referred to as Clegane Bowl.

    Everyone dies except for Sansa and Tyrion. They re-marry and rule the Seven Kingdoms.

    That's what I believe; there was only one left with her at the end. Probably the one that couldn't shake off all the wights.

    Two dragons have survived. You can see them
    In the preview for next week. The undead dragon didn’t die from drogons attack - just injured.

    The Wight Walker dragon should have died when the NightKing dies correct? maybe that's what you guys were implying:)

    After the huge disappointment of Endgame in the afternoon, this was such a salve. Yes, plot armour rules supreme, and has for a number of seasons now, but this episode was well done. The Dothraki light silently being extinguished told us volumes, with a greater emotional impact than a couple million dollars worth of CGI could have done. Watching Endgame I began to wonder a what point did Hollywood battle scenes reach their zenith, before the descent into a CGI mess? The last couple of LOTRs maybe. This GoT battle felt old school, battles within battles, each with their own layers, with purpose and intent, not just a spectacle. Thankfully a lot of the stupid actions that have plagued the last couple of seasons in the name of forcing the plot weren't here, just great storytelling.

    I watched it on cable, and while dark, it was not that bad.

    Personally loved it, as did I love the first 2 of season 8. Jon didn't play a huge part of season 8 so far, wondering if that will change or if that is part of the plan to have others take the main roles in season 8.

    Wonder if they have anyone left to fight going forward, seems the only folks left are the main characters....

    Azor Ahai existed 8,000 years earlier and most likely in Essos.
    Yeah, I think Dany and Jon will have an army of maybe two dozen (and two dragons) to take on Cersei's 20,000.

    And where were the Knights of the Vale?
