Well....perhaps we shouldnt delve too deeply into how he got the nickname 'Littlefinger' and maybe leave the speculation alone.

I'm sure he has....important business to attend to.

There sure has been a lot of drifting north of the wall since season 1.

Fargo, ND – Local resident Todd Fox has been detained for “reckless endangerment” and “illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry” for attacking snow with his flamethrower. Fox reportedly became so fed up with the week-long blowing snow epidemic in his area that he decided to KILL IT WITH FIRE.

The neighborhood was treated with quite a show last night as Fox unleashed an inferno upon the mountainous snow palace that was his front yard. Neighbors to his immediate right and left noticed a bright orange cloud and could hear what they thought was “puff the magic dragon spewing mayhem all over hell,” which prompted one of them to notify police.

Fox stated that he was simply “fed up with battling the elements” and that he did not possess the willpower necessary to move “four billion tons of white bull ####.”

Police say that Fox surrendered his efforts immediately upon their arrival and that his front yard “looked like a hydrogen bomb had gone off.” They think he was just happy to be done with snow removal, even if it did mean a trip to jail.

The farmhouse scene really highlighted how far south winter has hit in Westeros. Arya and the Hound were there in season four and last night it was a snowy mess. And that's in the Riverlands.

That's nice attention to detail. Them keeping the way clear for roving parties etc as winter comes on and the snow piles up. Wouldn't take long before that door would be buried otherwise. ####ty job having to shovel that driveway though.

"Ice, a wall of ice. The Wall... It's where the Wall meets the sea."

"There's a castle there. There's a mountain, looks like an arrowhead. The dead are marching past, thousands of them."

He saw the dead marching past a mountain on the way to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea - the castle that Jon sent Tormund to garrison.

There's is obviously some kind of magical force preventing crossing the wall, which would also prevent them using water. Otherwise, they could just attack the wall directly at any time. The wildlings almost burst through the gate and scaled the wall, with a relatively small force. The others now have a huge horde, that contains several zombie giants. There are even fewer men currently at the wall.

There's no reason the white walkers couldn't just storm the wall and rip open the gates, if it was just physics holding them back. If it was just a physical wall, an army made up of thousands of tireless soldiers could just storm the gates or chip away at the wall itself, until it was gone.

The White Walkers must also be linked to the land of Westeros somehow, which prevents them from boarding ships and attacking a neighbouring land or attacking from a different direction.

I'm feeling most interested in Bran's part for this season. With so many other characters there seem to be developed and somewhat set arches now, but there's still plenty of mystery around how and where Bran and his abilities will fit in.

I'm curious as to the gift Euron is planning to bring to Cersei. Tyrion? Just Tyrion's head? A dragon? I've got no sense of this guy or what he could have planned.

I'm also reminded as I re-watch the episode that I really enjoyed the conversation in the scene between Sam and the Archmaester.

I think he would have a hard time getting his hands of Tyrion. A sand snake maybe?

I was thinking Snow or Stark given their conversation about Cersei getting what she wanted and the Lannister army never coming that far North.

But probably the Sand Snake Queen. The Starks are out of reach.

Have you been following this story from the start or did you just jump in now? In what reality is a Stark ever safe in George RR Martin's world?

It means they aren't seaside, out of range of ships. Unless he intends to return to Cersei in 6 months.

and it's not his world anymore. It's HBO's world.

I think Euron's intended gift will depend on whether or not they plan on having him succeed.

If he will succeed and bring his gift back to Cersei to forge an alliance, it will probably be Tyrion... alive so she can experience the joy of killing her own brother. This, of course, will backfire on them and Tyrion will end up killing Cersei.

If Euron is to ultimately fail, then his target could be anything but will probably end with him attacking Dragonstone and getting roasted by Dany's dragons.

Did anyone else pick up on some potential foreshadowing. The scene with the dead army and the Wights, the shot of the giant makes me wonder if the Nights King can resurrect anything, perhaps direwolfs and dragons as well? What if he kills and resurrects someone like Melisandre and uses her magic to break down the wall?

Also the scene with the Hound burying the body and the shot of Thoros face going all dark, makes me wonder if something will happen to him as well? Does he turn to a darker side?

I think Euron is going after the Tyrells or the Snakes, it would be too ambitious to go after Daenerys or Tyrion just yet but who knows with this show.

Yeah, Euron isnt exactly subtle, so it wouldnt surprise me at all if hes going to try and impress Cersei by going after Tyrion and promptly getting his ass kicked.

Its an interesting juxtaposition between the two, the Lannisters in Westeros have a fractured group being barely held together during constant power struggles whereas Denearys has a cohesive group united under one leader.

When Sansa and Jon were talking about Cercsi and Sansa said she had learnt a lot from her... She has the same hairstyle as Cercsi used to rock.

Maybe she was hinting something else to Jon. Something much more terrible that Cersei is known for. Something that involves brothers and sisters.
