Ooh. That's an interesting point. I assumed that to be Viserys since he couldn't handle the molten gold.

I think I'm like 75% in agreement consciously, but 99% if I admit it to myself. I kind of WANT Littlefinger to have ONE person he cares about and would legitimately help, but I wouldn't be surprised if you are 100% correct.

Yes, this. I had no doubt that Reek would buckle when I saw Jerkoff Ramsay sitting there. A quick review: penis cut off, hands and feet continually (as in, over and over again!!) flayed, fed with dogs, slept with dogs, starved for food, then given affection in sick ways, I mean God, the list goes ON! And there was even MORE in the books. He was a fully, broken soul. The tears were a good sign because it showed part of Theon still in there, but damn is it buried in poor, broken Reek. The best hope he has for redemption with her is letting her know that Bran and Rickon are still alive and escaped. Then she might trust him a little (despite the rest of what happened). I have faith he'll come around, but if it were too easy, it wouldn't be believable at all.

I believe it was a corkscrew. Would do the trick in the ear, eye, heart, throat (just daydreaming about all the ways she could kill Ramsay)

Shireen is a stand-in for a different baby that we never saw. I was SHOCKED at that point.

Sam and Gilly end up being much more important in the books - they skipped a big part of the storyline that would lead up to that, but then Maester Aemon mentioned go south (presumably to "Old Town") so I think they're going to go there after all - just not sure how. Don't want to spoil any of it but they completely skipped a key part of how they are important so it will be a mystery.

I kept thinking this feels like 3 episodes IN, not only 3 episodes LEFT! We just got started! Plus, we skipped what was basically my FAVORITE storyline from the books that is kind of integral to right now (Griff/Young Griff). If it was going to happen, you'd think it would have had to happen by now, and it plays into multiple prophesies, so... ???? I had really held high hopes that not having much from the books to go from on part of this wouldn't screw up the TV part much, but I'm afraid I'm let down.

One question: why didn't ANYONE pick up the dagger so that they'd be able to mitigate any bad urges once she became the dark one? I don't think it means anything that she's the dark on - Gold could still be himself in the midst of being the Dark one. Hopefully that's somewhat the same for her?

I kept thinking that too - why on earth did everyone let her continue to think her father's death was Amanda's fault??
