EPISODE 7: The Broken Man

THE PLOT : Winter is coming, and with it, the white walkers. If those still standing don't band together soon, the iron throne may become a throne of ice.

THE LOWDOWN: (The following column contains MAJOR SPOILERS, so I don't recommend reading this if you haven't watched this episode). The night is dark and full of terror. Letís start with the return of The Hound. This was something I was hoping for since we last saw him with Arya. Because of his relationship with her, Iíd hoped weíd see him again, and letís be honest, in Game of Thrones, if you donít physically see someone die (and sometimes even if you do), thereís a good chance they could pop back up. And who better to usher this character back into the fold than Ian McShaneósomeone I never thought Iíd see on this show. McShane is awesome, and though he wasnít meant for a long stay in Westeros, he steals the show as you might well imagine. The episodeís ending is obvious, but I have to wonder why the Brotherhood is killing innocents? There was absolutely no call for killing those people, but itís ironically hilarious at the same time (not the killing part), seeing as how the Brotherhood had a run in with The Hound once before. He wasnít a fan then, and heís clearly not a fan now. Iím looking forward to the ensuing bloodbath.

My faith in Kingís Landing is somewhat renewed by Margaeryís actions tonight. As Iíd hoped, sheís not under the Sparrowís spell after all (hopefully the King isnít either). Sheís plotting something, and Iím assuming that something will revolve around taking down the Sparrow and getting her brother out of jail. Itís a dangerous game to be sure, but Iím intrigued. Itís Granny Tyrell whoís on fire though, ripping Cersei a new ass. Talk about not holding back! You can tell it is taking all of Cerceiís willpower to not have The Mountain cleave the old bag in two. Not only does she point out Cerceiís stupidity (repeatedly), but to rub her nose in it by saying her failure is this messí only upside? Talk about some hard truth. I couldnít help but laugh.

Jon, Sansa and Davosí quest for numbers is daunting. The landscapes are beautiful though, I just wish I could say the same for northern hospitality. A lot of mixed emotions, and Iím not exactly surprised. Iím even less surprised to see her eyeing those ravenís at the end. Is she writing to Littlefinger? You know she is. Will he get it, or will it be intercepted? Well, it is Game of Thrones so itíll be intercepted by Ramsay, but when the battle seems lost, Littlefinger and The Vale will swoop in and save the day because (drum roll) Sansa sent more than one raven! I donít care about any of that, so long as Jon kills that motherf*cker. Oh, and I really hope Tormond doesnít die. On a side note, Brienne is on her way to see The Blackfish, leading me to think sheíll cross paths with Jaime, which hopefully wonít go the way I think it will.

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 6ís seventh episode is revving the engine pretty loud, so Iím thinking weíre about to get some huge fireworks. Despite not much happening at Riverrun, itís quite a sight to behold. For one, thatís a large army Jaime and Bronn brought with them, but the real entertainment came from the intensity. We havenít seen The Blackfish since The Red Wedding, something Jaime was largely responsible for, so seeing The Blackfish seething with anger comes as no surprise. Surrender the castle? Seriously Jaime, you really thought there was a chance in hell of that happening? And to YOU of all people? That fight will NOT end pretty. Lastly, it pains me to see Arya seemingly lose everything. It has to be a trick right? IT HAS TO BE! Iím hoping against hope that itís the other girl who is being set up to be killed by Arya as a final test, but yes, thatís me grasping at straws. She better not die, thatís all Iím saying. Oh, and Iím liking Yaraís idea to make a pact with Danny. Iím very interested to see how Tyrion and Varys weigh in on that conversation.

SEX/NUDITY: Yara and crew stop for some titties and beer, and thereís lots of both.

VIOLENCE: The Houndís return is drenched in blood, but thatís nothing compared to how much is coming. Arya is mortally wounded and bleeding outóbut itís a trick I tell you!

MOST EPIC SCENE: Jaime and The Blackfishís conversation was beyond awesome, I could feel the hair on my arms tingling.

FINAL VERDICT :

With the return of the Brotherhood, it seems likely that the Hound will get Brienne's storyline from the books, and we'll get Lady Stoneheart by the end of the season.

Loved this episode. The Hound coming back is greatness and everything going down at Blackfish looks to be exciting. Still no Tyrion which makes me mad but overall a episode.

Lamest episode of the season

Not trolling, I just couldn't help but be struck by KCMsterpce's subject below, since I honestly felt BORED during this whole episode. It was another "do-nothing" show, very much in line with GRRM's 4th and 5th books...lots of mini stories, but none that move us ANY closer to the grand finale, which has to be Drogon vs Night King.

Best episode of the season

I have been wholly unimpressed with this season, but I found this episode to be beautifully paced, nicely written and has reinvigorated my faith in the remaining three episodes.

This season has been great and this episode set up a lot of nice things for the seasons end. I highly doubt what happened to Arya would be the end of her. The girl is probably one of the most resilient in the entirety of the cast, so for something like that to take her down would go against the nature of her character. Of course, the nature of the series is the unexpected that happens to the characters, so who knows. But I highly doubt it. Was not expecting Yara to have come up with her deal,

Of course, the nature of the series is the unexpected that happens to the characters, so who knows. But I highly doubt it. Was not expecting Yara to have come up with her deal, but it makes sense. I can't see Dany turning it down either, as all Yara wants is the Iron Islands. I feel like Granny Tyrell will meet her end, either at the hands of Cersei, or the Sparrow, or she will be betrayed to the Sparrow. Either way, I am very glad to see Margery is being her sneaky self and has a plan that is clearly taking place. My initial reaction, coupled with the Sparrows story from earlier, is that she is going to somehow seduce him. That would certainly put the Sparrow in his place.

With everything going on, I am starting to think that maybe the show surpassing GRRM's novels might be a great thing. This season feels like it's moving at a clip and that more developments are happening this season than any before. It feels like, after all this time, the catharsis we've waited for from mass plot developments is coming to fruition.
