The sides have been chosen, and the war is on.

Nothing really revealing in the first episode - I think it pretty well went as we all expected. It's where it goes from here that will be the key.

Meanwhile, word has it that this season will be only seven episodes in total instead of the usual ten.

A record 11.2 million viewing the first night of Season 7.

I have not watched it, but, I am finding a lot of references to it from the player created map, Ragnarok, for Ark Survival Evolved.

These guys showed up last year.

Kind of a slow start for a 7-episode final season...

Agreed, but setting the scene - again - for the forthcoming final - we hope, at last - battle.

This isn't the final season.

There is one more season next summer consisting of 6 episodes.

So 12 episodes left.

It's now officially winter everywhere Bwaha - kind of cold for that sort of thing...but don't worry - they will find a way!


Interesting revelation for those who caught it - the entire map of the area ordered by Cersie shows us that this is England, and The Wall is right where Hadrian built his, making the White Walkers the equivalent of the Picts and Celts.

Still no logical answer, however, for why no one just goes around the end of the Wall.

Jon Snow and his constantly stupid decisions...
Now Sansa is left all alone with Littlefinger. Who IMO will seize the opportunity to use his knights of the Vale to seize Winterfell.

As for Jon's silly mission south...
Lady Greyjoy has lost her fleet on her way to Dorne (failing to ferry dornish forces back to Westeros).
Olenna will get backstabbed by Lord Tarly.
While the unsullied are sent fishing into Casterly Rock (who the hell sends his/her main force away like that?).

So IMO Jon's mission will be a failure. Daenerys has bigger problems than mining for dragon glass or worrying about the very distant White Walkers.

BTW, I see Tyrion is now drawing up Daenerys's military plans, even though he himself admitted in earlier episodes he has no clue about war.

I don't think that LF will use the Vale troops against Winterfell. He needs Sansa too much and I feel like it makes he play too active of a role. He keeps himself separated from the action throughout the series.

I think Tarley will side with the Lannisters as you said and turn on Olenna's region.

The Lannisters will probably fight the unsullied at Casterly Rock (ambush).

Jon will probably unite with Dany IMHO as he is the wonder boy
