I started to wonder if Cersei will be so engulfed in hatred from what happened to her plus losing Myrcella that she herself will kill Tommen for being useless in all of this. Otherwise, like you said, the Dorne story was pretty pointless.
Sansa will inherit the Theon. Hahahaha...Maybe you meant throne but this was funnier! :)
It's hard to feel sorry for Cersei because she herself does not feel sorry about anything. If she had the dragons, Kings Landing would have been burnt to a crisp. She's learned nothing from this experience and she took every step with a mental note on who would die next. Arya won't be the only one with a hit list. Although I will say, even I would want to choke the lady who kept saying "Shame". Can she be more annoying?! Um, why didn't we get to see Stannis killed? I had to hear Shereen's screams but you couldn't show me Stannis getting stabbed?! Well, Jon Snow. He really did know nothing. He was one of my favorite characters but it does make sense that his own people would turn against him. And while I would hate for him to be really dead, it would stay true to the show and the way it kills off its better characters. Dany: I would think that releasing the other dragons might help to find her. Wouldn't they go to their mom and wounded brother if released? Seems much quicker than sending off the lovelorn duo on a quest. Notice how no one even cared about Dorne and Myrcella dying. Take note of this, writers. Take note. I do not like that the pace was so off this season and now have to wait a full year for anything to happen. AHHHHH........
I agree with Alex Maranda. It wasn't rape but it was incredibly disturbing to watch. In contrast, when Jaime forced himself on Cersei after Joffrey's death WAS rape and it seemed that few people even lifted an eyebrow over that one.
Agree on Lady Olenna. I expected more than just "soap opera" long stares and naïveté. Maybe she will send Tommen to the same fate as Joffrey to send a message to Cersei.
I think Arya was indeed lying when she said she hated the Hound. She thinks she was telling the truth, though. I'm also frustrated by the pace of the season. Even though I am not a book follower, I can still feel the difference in story, style, and dialogue from the previous seasons. Even the battle with the Sand Snakes was a huge letdown. The last scene with Sansa was just straight up disturbing. She's never been my favorite character but it was painful to have watched a character "grow up" onscreen and for that to happen. I'd hoped she used the candle in the window on her wedding night although I am starting to wonder if that was a trick from Ramsay. And can someone explain greyscale to me? Once you have it, you are contagious? Jorah grabbed Tyrion last night. Is he at risk?
I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment on the scenes with Arya and also Littlefinger. You lost me with the insults towards the reviewer. As Gayle said, it's just a show.
I think it was totally "in character" to NOT call anyone, even Amelia. These are the people who had a post it note wedding, after all! All of that felt very organic and if Patrick Dempsey was looking to leave his contract early, then this is the way to go. What bugged me was the re-use of the music from the Fake Rock Opera episode and other tragic moments. It felt like someone had run out of ideas and these scenes deserved better than that.
Annndddddd....I'm done. Just can't keep watching this show. The whole premise was built on Emily plotting REVENGE against the people who wronged her dead father who by all accounts actually wanted her to forgive these people. All of that is gone now. Revenge has become murderous, her dead father is alive, and surprise, not so dead daddy is a murderer, too! Buh - Bye.
