Jesus...I took today off to recover from the launch party but, actually, I think today will be spent recovering from last night's fucking episode of Game of Thrones. I sat on the couch as the credits rolled just sobbing uncontrollably. Yikes.

A slow down episode, while standard for this show, kind of makes me and at this point. We know that they're going to Sopranos the last season so it'll take us 2-3 years to inch through a handful of episodes, so all a slowdown episode does now is waste more of our time.

Blah.

Anyway, the last two episodes this season are an epic freak out blowing up the Death Star battle(s). So fair enough, I guess.

I'm embarrassed to admit how much time I've wasted today reading breakdowns and theories of Bran's vision. Jeez...

The 70 minute "Battle of the Bastards" episode was astounding. Actually two battles -- one with dragon goodness that neatly ties up about 30 side stories across the sea and the big showdown between Ramsey Bolton and Jon Snow. The bodies quite literally piled up and we cleared a few names off the cast list, and set up to clear a few more next time.

A bit of clumsiness amidst all the gore and dragons, though. You can see the writers moving all the chess pieces into place. Everyone who had their B Stories are getting the hurry-up-and-get-in-position treatment. With many of them, that means that they have to step out of character. Arya's suddenly in a hurry to go home, they dropped the Dorne storyline completely, Cersei's gone from tactical genius to bringing the hammer down, they're cramming Starks together (or eliminating them with little thought), the Hound's actions make no sense at all.

But, oh well. Get in place for the mother of all battles.

The finale was...shocking. Every plotline is on hyperspeed, as well. But it still delivered.

13 episodes remain, split in half -- 2017 and 2018. We may get 15 episodes, they say, depending on what the story demands in terms of wrap-up. But the finale did a pretty good job at getting every single piece onto the table and into permission. All that happens now is that they have to all smash into each other.

Going on record that GoT is set within a Dyson Sphere. I think I said that earlier in this thread, but now this fan theory is on the rise (though the current theory says it's on a ringworld).

The Dyson Sphere theory actually comes from shortly after the second book was published, so well before the series, and even GRRM hinted at it as he stole food from various Santa Fe literary gatherings. The whole saga is "secretly sci-fi."

Wow...this is all you need if you just want to start with season six, RC! Sam Jackson recaps six years of GoT in 7 minutes Thug Notes style.

Confirmed -- Season 7 will be seven episodes, starting next summer. And NO Sopranos delay for the final season 8! That'll run between six-eight episodes and will follow in 2018, though HBO hasn't said when.

And then there'll be a gigantic hole in the pay cable cosmos that'll probably result in some fascinating huge-budget fantasy/sci-fi power struggles.

So... Cersei breathing out cold and fading into the Night King may break the internet.

Oh, good, HBO orders five spin-off shows set in the GoT universe.

That won't be a FUCKING SHITSTORM at all, right?

Watch the Season 7 premier yet?  Without going into details, I thought it was well done and set up the season well.

Yeah, it was beautiful. Literally setting the playing board (at King's Landing and Dragonstone), eh?

Also, how about Sansa rocking Cersei's long-hair hairdo?
