Did the show mention that the dagger was a gift to Robert from Jon Arryn like the book did? If so, major implications...
Personally, I thought the way they had the Hound see into the flames was a bit ham-handed. That needed to be dragged out more, the way they did with Stannis back in whatever season that was. I felt like Sandor stepped in front of the fire and was like, "Oh yeah, there it is." Not enough doubt leading up to the reveal.
My recollection is that Petyr tells Ned that Tyrion won it from him - no other info on it. But Varys backs him up? Major implications regardless? I mean it's a very recognizable shape after all.
I couldn't tell if the Hound was playing us with that one, but I came to the conclusion that he'd been entirely sincere for the whole of the episode. Then I figured it was a clever writing finesse, for the man terrified of fire to be the one so easily connected to it, like it was no big deal.

I lol'd at the manbun, totally
And D&D must have gotten the hint to work on Euron, because the Euron that showed up at KL to gross-flirt with Cersei and trash talk Jaime was WAAAY better than the boring one from the Kingsmoot last year. I mean, he's still not the "right" Euron in any way, but the acting and character personality improved drastically.
Bran the Freaking Timelord aka the Great Other Dude (God), father of Jon freaking Snow. Of course he would need to be killed by a mysterious blade that is now connected to killing the white walkers/Night King.

You have no idea how close you are to a Marvel crackpot I'm putting together right now, as in, literally typing on it all day today.
Jon's father isn't human, is what I'm getting at. Not Great Other Dude, necessarily, but really. really. close.
I'm sold. I'm cool with Lyanna as mommy, but Jon's dad is not of this world - he's more of the North, however you want to slice that, Great Other, Night King, Overly Tardised Bran. God. Insert Jesus Mary and Joseph imagery here.
When I saw the cut of the Cloak of Levitation - seriously, you can even see the similarities in Petyr's silhouette in the most recent episode - no doubt we're being played. Still gives me hope that Petyr is the last Reyne, but not sure if D&D figured that out.
I had written a synopsis somewhere of the plot of Doctor Strange and it was a dead ringer for Bran's arc. Will find it.
