Winter is coming ... and probably so are spoilers (which is why we use the spoiler tags like this one):

On a tangent, there are rumours that the final season 5 ep may have a belated lady stoneheart appearance.

I so desperately want it to be true, but I have my doubts...

Yeah, like they need more characters. I'd rather see a peek at the Hound's fate. I'm guessing we'll see the walk of shame, a backstabbing (which is being telegraphed harder than Stannis's sacrifice), and...some resolution in Winterfell? Not enough time so probably will leave it where the book does.

Guessing we won't see: any sense made of the Dorne subplot.

What a journey.

I think that is what everyone thought. :)

I heard/saw that, too.

The interwebz are also abuzz with stories about a "shocking" scene with the sand snakes

(I personally hope it's a 1 minute public service announcement at the start of the episode where the show's producers publicly apologise for the whole pointless Dorne subplot and pledge to not mention it in season 6).

There's also all this "break the internet" hype so it's nice to see they're setting realistic expectations.

Well, at least it's not as bad as the pointless Dorne subplot in the books. :0
What happened to blind arya? is that in this show?

As to the Dorne subplot, in the books it makes more sense because of the political intrigue that is so pervasive. We have none of

Right, the Dorne subplot (and Doran's true character) would be clearer in context with

Overall, great episode though.

The Arya storyline sure is mangled. Yup.

Mangled yes - but that scene was immensely gratifying.

A followup thought from the books: "In the cold night air the wound was smoking"

Well, pursuant to recent regulations, all wounds wishing to smoke had to do so outdoors.

Watching this season made me realise how truly awful the last two books of ASOIF were (and conversely how good the first three were).

The show writers salvaged what they could but I'm not cofident about the last two seasons (even less so the books).

Has it jumped the dragon?
