The Hound in the Golden Helmet!?

I have NO idea of what you mean by your post, but I will say that this is what I kind of expected of GoT  premiere.  Great and Good and leaving more questions of the fate of Others, while still carrying on the storyline. 

Next Sunday will reveal more and more until there is a final showdown between all the enemies of the Realm.

We had a 2 AM  start here this morning for the first episode of series six, well worth sitting up for. Millisandre(?) at ********, wonder what magic she could weave.

Overall, good first episode.  What I didn't care for:

1.  The last we saw Sansa and reek, they were jumping from a 100 foot wall at Winterfell.  Next scene they are running through the woods in like 2 inches of snow.  Pretty unbelieveable that they would have survived that jump with so little snow!  The books describe the huge blizzard that STannis is fighting through so it is more believeable there.

2.  What the hell was that scene with the Sandsnakes on the ship to kill the prince.  Was the ship still in King's Landing's harbor?  How did the Sandsnakes get there when the last we saw them, they were walking back to the castle in Dorne with Mum while the ship carrying Myrcell and the prince was well on it's way out to seas.  Where were the Dorne sailers and guards on the boat?  And where did the prince get the stones and paint to start painting "death eye stones" for Myrcella?

3.  What happened to the vicious hounds after they found Sansa and the sword fighting began?  They run away?

4.  How could they kill off a bad ass like Oteah (the Dorne bodyguard) by letting some little girl just stab him once in the back?

Sorry. but the directors are (IMHO) pushing the line too much to close this series in 73 episodes and they are getting sloppy in the production of what was (and still is) a GREAT show!

Just my opinion mind you......

I don't care how implausible the story line is going . it's TV/ fiction, entertainment, as long as I'm kept hooked (which I will be) the producers/writers can do what they want.

...I just don't want to se the quality of the program slip just so they can finish on "their" self imposed time schedule.  It would do a great disservice to the program when it has been at the top of it's game so far.

P.S......sorry if I revealed any spoilers for those that have not seen the episode yet.  I will be more careful in the future.

I have a feeling that Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, is going to make an appearance sometime before this 6th season is over.  Obviously, I could be very wrong and off my rocker, but something tells me that this is a possibility.

Guess who's back???

(and it is not Mance Rayder as I posted above). 

Edited to add:  I didn't say who.  So please refrain from getting mad at me if anyone who posts on this topic has not seen the episode yet.  Thanks!!!

I don't see Mance coming back (unlike the book).  In the book, it was Mellisandre that used her magic to switch the bodies.  In the TV show, she doubts her powers (at least until she finds out what she did last night), so I don't think she will have saved Mance from the fire.

Thanks for that, I've not seen it yet but I can guess, that woman and her magic, when she turned up at the keep in S6 Ep 1 I think it was fairly obvious what was possibly going to happen.

Just finished watching the episode.  EPIC!  Instead of setting up story lines for the first 3-4 episodes each season, they jumped right in.  Ranks up there with episodes 9&10 of last season.  THANK  YOU!

...not a lot of surprises this episode, just cleaned up some loose ends to further the story line.  But I had guessed the "gift" that Ramsey was going to get - and who gave it to him!

Well, in GoT unless you actually SEE them die you never know!  And even then......now that Jon is back.....

You are absolutely correct in your assessment.  You never know. 

Here is one of many predictions that I have about the show.  Jon Snow is going to be the one that kills Ramsay Snow (Bolton).  That, or Sansa is going to get her revenge on Ramsay because of how cruel he was to her, especially on their wedding night.

My money is on Sansa taking the weasel out!  Also, I think the Umbers are trying to trick Ramsey into leaving Winterfell to fight Jon's forces in the field.

Anyone else think that this past episode was awesome?  They all are, but I did enjoy this one (as I will the next 3). 

"What is dead may never die".  That seems to be a recent recurring theme on GoT.  One of the most hated (or loved) character returns, but to what end/purpose? 

I just loved the scene(s) with Lady Mormont.

Anyone else think LSH will FINALLY make an appearance this season?  There sure are a lot of hints that it might happen.

Game of Thrones, episode 8, begins in about 15 hours from now (Central Standard Time).  I can't wait.

...WORST episode EVER!!  Without the book material to script from, D&D are floundering.  They are turning what was one of the greatest shows to hit the small screen into a joke!

Tonight's episode is titled, The Battle of the Bastards

Jon Snow (and Sansa Stark) versus the wickedly evil Ramsay Snow (now Bolton). 

It could also be titled, The Battle for Winterfell
