Also someone smarter than me, scared for my girl Arya here.  Has she not essentially broken a lot of her training and all things Faceless Men by essentially becoming Arya Stark again?  Just feel like her series may end with her finishing her list and Jaqen popping out of an alley and shanking her in the kidney for playing by her own rules. 

she never really became no one. she kept her sword the entire time.

 

that entire plot line was nonsense. she basically left saying "fug you guys i'm arya stark i'm out" and the faceless men didn't seem to care at all.

Or maybe she passed the test

Also what if Arya is going south to murder Dany, not Cersei as expected?    I know she's on the list but that would be a shocker.

I think its likely at this point.

I like the theory that the Faceless Men let her go because she was going to kill the Night King.    "All Men Must Die" and this guy been living way too long for 1000 years.     Like someone said, once the many faced god is done with her, it may be the end.    Maybe she understands this herself.

To me the best episode of the season. all the parts are lining up. next week is going to be intense.

Two biggest things that interested me:

1.  Bran - they clearly meant to set something up with his comments to Tyrion about living mainly in the past.  He gonna do end up doing something big. 

2.  I still think the Snow/Tormund convo was important/foreshadowed something big as well. 

I think the rest plays out pretty obviously. Jamie’s speech wasn’t about going back to his love.  He is going back to kill her.  Dany gonna get the throne and we are watching her turn into the exact type person that keeps the game/cycle going.

Okay. I found out way too late yesterday (around 8:00) that both episodes 4 and 5 had leaked (I think in Thailand.) I decided to read the bullet points of E4 and just watch it live. I haven't looked up anything on E5, yet.

For whoever said there were 3 episodes left... There are only two. There's only 6 episodes in this season, unless the theory that there is/was a seventh episode that was filmed is correct, which I have my doubts about.

I don't think I really cared for last night's episode all that much. It is funny how polarizing this show can be on that front, with hyper critics like Dex feeling the opposite (no offense at all intended here, bud.)

rodeo is right. The editing seemed jarring to me, and a lot of things seemed rushed.

I liked a lot of things, but I didn't like a lot of things.

The good:
Dead dragon. One less deus ex machina device is better.
Oathsex (as it has come to be referred to.)
Sam/Jon's goodbye.
Tormund, as always.
Cersei's ruthlessness/Missandei's last word.
The scorpion attack on Dany's fleet. Some good film work there, albeit brief.
The building tension/madness from Dany/Sansa/da norf.
The Hound/Arya.
The Hound/Sansa. Great scene. I would actually love to see both Stark girls just retire to the hills with the Hound as their adoptive papa. lol
Dany turning heel. I feel it coming. I don't care for her character anyways.

The bad:
Ghost. Jon doesn't even give a poo about him, and neither do the writers. One of my biggest gripes in show vs. books.
Jaime leaving. I get why he did it, but Brienne was right. He isn't that hateful person he described. He should have just stayed.
The sudden jumps in scene changes.
"Don't tell anyone. Promise!" Proceed to tell a few people.
Bronn being so "mean." I get why he's tired of being promised all this stuff and wanting to bow out, but he has genuine connections to both those blonde bois. He could have gotten what he wanted without being painted as this unnecessarily violent cutthroat. In fact, even at the Battle of the Blackwater, they painted him the opposite in his interactions with the hound. He's just another character the showrunners no longer care about.

Obviously, this is still the GOAT show to me. I just hate we only have two more episodes to go. I even dreamed about the show last night, lol. I remember being sad that the show was done, and how they had handled some of the characters' endings, lol.

omg I just read the "leaks" for the last two episodes of the series...

I'm really torn on how I feel about some things. Every detail isn't spelled out, but the highlights are, and I don't know what to think. I think some people are going to love it, and some people are going to absolutely hate it.

I really hate to link them, lol. I'd rather just answer specific questions and/or provide an overview of the high points. But, I did google "Game of Thrones final episode leaks" and found a story that had a link to a compiled thread on /freefolk.

I'm still processing them myself. I don't know what bums me out more: some of the leaks or just knowing the show is over in two more episodes.

I tried to PM you @CRA but you can't receive messages.

There's a compilation thread of "Episodes 4-6 leaks" on /freefolk.

didn't you say the last leak concerning the Long Night battle ended up being completely bogus? 

you can PM me the answer or spoiler tag it.  Are the WWs done?
