It's objectively a great episode on it's own, maybe the best the show has had. It going to be very divisive among book readers though because if it's not fanfiction it's gonna put a lot of theories in the trash bin. Black Crow will like it.

Yeah, I read about that on a non-ASoIaF site I got to sometimes, and the poster said the ending was... (that's all he said and I don't want to be spoiled either, so I stopped reading, and I think our own alienarea got spoiled too, because he's not too happy about it)
I would like to say though, if anyone here wants to talk about the episode before it actually airs tonight, feel free. Just please use spoilers
OK that was hands down the best episode since the Battle of Blackwater. Absolutely riveting.
Sansa handing Petyr his arse, the CotF creating the first WW at Ground Zero of Winterfell, Bran the Timelord interacting with the past twice, BR, Hodor and Summer gone, the acting was superb (even Emilia). Whoa.
The new Red Priestess was brilliant.
So down to business, we'll have the Blackfish back (w00t), but with Petyr and Sweetrobin take it upon themselves to try and help out Sansa without her knowing?
OK I'm not into Davos this season. Wildly out of character with his instant bonding with Mel, and not pressing the issue about Shireen. Same with Tyrion, he's been one-note and uninspired.
And what's up with the direwolves all dying? I get that Summer sacrificed for Bran, but now a series so heavily centered around the Starks as wargs, there is only Ghost and the lost Nymeria. What purpose does that serve the story?
I think I'm still in shock. I whooped with joy thinking I'd got it right that, Bran made Hodor, but then it didn't turn out that way much. How the hell did Hodor slip into Walder/Willas? Did I miss something?
I've got more questions then answers out of that. If this what it's going to be like being an Unsullied, I don't know if I can stand it.
I feel it's a bad thing Sansa didn't tell Jon about Littlefinger and the Vale...she should still make common cause with the Vale and kill Littlefinger.
Yeah, I thought that too. Why does she not want them to know Littlefinger was there? Is she worried they'd kill him outright if they knew? She's definitely playing some sort of game, I just hope she's ready.
