I actually just didnt get that ending at all. They were in shallow water. Now I get that water is likely to get deeper the further in it goes.... but bottomless fucking abyss?

Anyway, hes not dead. Hes now captured by Daenerys and Tirion will convince him to fight with them against Cersei. Hes already abandoned Cersei in the books by this point, so it makes sense that the TV character catches up.

I agree with this, (including how the edge of the Blackwater becomes very very deep immediately!) Also I don't agree that GRR would have killed Jamie at that point. He is the most likely character to kill Cersei IMO. I'm looking forward to a a Brotherly reunion.

Yeah Jamie seems destined to kill Cersei, as per the prophecy. I was expecting him to get burned though and have those good looks ruined.

I honestly didn't see it as cliff hanger , he's clearly alive and will either have escaped by ditching his armour and made it to the city or he's captured . It was just a dramatic shot ! If it was the end of season it's be another matter. I don't think Arya and Sansa will end up fighting , chances are they will take turns gutting littlefinger.

What were the 2 things Tirion said at the end? wasn't sure if he was willing him to run away, or willing him to kill Daenerys...

"You fucking idiot" I think he said when Jamie was charging at Dany, I got the impression he wanted Jamie out of there, not attacking a dragon.

He said "Flee you idiot" if I remember. Tirion loves Jamie, Jamie always protected his brother. Remember he got him out of Kings Landing after the trial for Jophrey's murder.

Jaime isn't dead, and neither is bronn (or he shouldn't be, at least, as the breath clearly missed him). I imagine they're about to get dredged out of the lake by a dragon's mouth though, which might make them shit themselves. I expect Tyrion will waddle up and stop Danny from saying whatever is High Valyrian for "Chew!" Before anything worse happens.

That armour looked bloody heavy. I can't imagine anything other than a dragon could fish him out before he drowned.

I was surprised at her dragon tactics too. Make a hole then fry the food?!?! Really?!?!

I was also surprised they let the big crossbow out of King's Landing. She knows it exists now. I'd have saved it and kept it secret.

Epic battle though. I suppose a dragon frying the line wouldn't have been as epic.

Interesting insight into Bran's conversation with Littlefinger. I'd picked up that LF was a little shocked by Bran saying Chaos is a ladder but didn't fully appreciate why: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/..._entertainment

I fully expect there is also going to be a good reason he gave Arya the Valyrian steel dagger rather than just not wanting it.

Wasn't that Jon Snow's point? Not to go in with three dragons and kill everyone as she would be seen as any other. Looks like she decided to compromise and use the one dragon to make a "hole" in the line and let the Dothraki get on with the rest.

I thought Jon was referring to taking Kings Landing with the dragons. Army v Army where there are no civilians to be hurt is the place you want to be using a blunt instrument like that. She needs riders for the other 2 dragons though so they can all be used together...

I think they were talking about far wider scale carnage re the dragons. i.e. massacring civilians whilst taking cities. Besides, the horde need some exercise!

Littlefinger - yeah not sure what's scarier for him. Bran knowing about all his bullshit or the fact he doesn't seem to care about any of it.

Arya will cut his throat at some point and with that dagger.

Good call. She will probably do it with Catelyns face as well. Or not. Im not sure how the whole borrowing faces thing works.

Didn't think of that. Maybe both she and Sansa will do it as revenge for Ned's death? Littlefinger had a big part to play in that. I can imagine Sansa seducing LF at some point and Arya jumping out of the shadows to kill him.

Pretty sure they have to be a person's actual face, which is why the temple is so happy to run a side business in euthanasia.

As for why she only used one dragon, and why she didn't use it in the optimum fashion, I imagine we just witnessed Westeros' version of Hiroshima. "Hi, I'm Danny. This is my Dragon. FYI, I have two more. kneel, bitches!"

I very much doubt Qybern built only one ballista, Ferg. They're not that complex to make, so I imagine King's Landing is riddled with the things.

Yes. If she played The Game of Thrones like Mr_Skiff she'd have researched Dragons herself season one, and ROFLstomped Danny and co. whilst they were still establishing their bases.

No, this isn't a comment on hearts & minds, Ferg and I are saying that even with one Dragon her battlefield tactics were stupid. Cavalry v Shieldwall with Spears/Pikes loses, end of. See also Napoleonic Squares v Cavalry charges. Dothraki don't even have lances to add reach to compensate.

After her first pass with Drogon we saw lots of shots of Dothraki horses dying against spears. She should have flown along the line burning them, rather than fly at it at 90 degrees to make one hole. Also she said she needed supplies. So why did she spend 75% of the battle burning the supplies?

Dramatic scenes, but writers are crap Generals.

Burning soldiers (stuntmen) is dangerous and expensive, blowing up supply wagons is cheaper.

But I agree it doesn't make sense what she did from a tactical perspective, as you say she should have come in at a right angle to the pike/shield line and torched it, leaving the supplies available for looting and reducing losses on her own side.

Apparently that battle now holds the record for the most stuntmen on fire at once. Unsurprisingly.

It's not that. She thought she was invincible on that Dragon. Now she knows she's not.

It was a surprise when they fire it at her and it didn't kill her. Opportunity lost.

She'll be expecting it at King's Landing now.

After her first pass with Drogon we saw lots of shots of Dothraki horses dying against spears. She should have flown along the line burning them, rather than fly at it at 90 degrees to make one hole. Also she said she needed supplies. So why did she spend 75% of the battle burning the supplies?

Dramatic scenes, but writers are crap Generals.
this officially makes you one sad fucker
