    I thought that was weird too. Kept expecting someone to come leaping out at them. You'd think she'd have taken a few more guards with her. I mean, she is now on the same continent as Cersei after all. Use your head, Dragon Chick!
    We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Edward R. Murrow

    I mean, seriously, that is bugging me more as I think about it. Cersei knew Dany was on her way and it didn't occur to her that Dany might just make a pit stop at her old home? She should have sprinkled an assassin or two about the keep. At least poisoned some of the items Dany might handle. I mean sheesh, seems like a pretty obvious thing to do. Learn to be cutthroat, Cersei!

    So Daenareyise is in Westeros now, right? That's Dragonstone? Stannis just kind of packed everyone up and went north and forgot to lock up?
    Hah, we are both dopes. One of the soldiers, the one singing, was Ed Sheeran. It bothers me a bit if they created a whole scene just to give him a cameo though. Unless there is more to come involving those soldiers.

    As long as it doesn't turn into another Sand Snakes situation where he becomes a recurring, annoying character, I don't really mind. I had no idea he was someone before you mentioned it.

    Not really feeling Euron (yet). I seem to remember him being more dangerous in the book, as it is now he just feels like a cut-rate Floki.

    I thought the Samwell scene was going to turn into a Disney musical for a minute.

    Of all the blood and guts images that GoT has produced over the years, Samwell's experience with the latrine duty just grossed me out.

    Initially I think she was planning on trying to kill them, but after sitting with them and kind of seeing that they're just normal people she might not. Seems like they might have been trying to show that she's not entirely a cold-blooded assassin despite the pile of corpses she's left behind so far (and the ones she still plans to make). I guess it depends on what happens later with it as to whether it was a waste or not. And who knows? Next time we see that group there could be eight corpses lying on the ground. I don't think so, though.

    The next scene where Sandor returned to the place where he robbed the dude with his little girl was similar. A lot of the purpose behind that was to show the change in his character since the last time he was there.

    I was surprised when they just opened the gates. Probably just a TV thing... no point in showing them pound on some undefended gates. I'm sure we all know how entertaining pushing on gates is thanks to the graveyard.

    to be fair with three humongus dragons flying over the castle anyone remaining from the stannis camp would've fled before they hit shore. but i think youre right about cersei slacking on dragonstone although it was really jamie who got the idea danny will land on ds and use it as ops hq.

    my only gripe is that danny isn't armed more. or armored for that matter. even in the real world dignitaries wear full gear when being transported in hostile areas but she just seems to be in a travelling dress and nothing more. a chic chainmail shirt with an elegant long dagger shaped like a dragons tooth would've been more appropriate. or maybe that's just my gemstone kicking in. dammit japh.

    They're Lannister soldiers, I wouldn't be surprised if she is wearing Ed Sheeran's face to get into Kings Landing.

    Sandor Clegane might be my favorite character.

    Euron Greyjoy's gift to Cersei is called the "Dragonbinder", a massive 6 foot horn of ancient Valyria; it was used to bind dragons to the user's will. Also called the Hellhorn, since the sound it makes is akin to a million dead souls screaming.



    P.S. Spoiler alert!
