Season 7 Live-Blog Transcript

For those of you who weren’t able to make the live-blog or who got hit by the many technical problems we ran into, I’m including a full transcript of our chat below the cut:

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Well, thanks for sticking with us through the technical problems, folks.

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

We’re all very sorry about the technical issues, everyone!

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Hopefully with the setup out of the way the plot can start in earnest next episode.

Nina 14 hours ago

Overall, really not a great beginning, pretty uneven middle, but a really good ending.

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Yep, totally agreed. The only problem with it is how Stannis nicely left the castle completely unoccupied.

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

Finally back! Ugh, really, really dull. But I agree her arrival was good.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

And that’s a wrap! Agreed with neeners, that was a great closing scene.

Nina 14 hours ago

Really liking this Dragonstone landing scene. Location, score, and direction working together quite nicely

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

So many black dresses with triangular shoulderpads.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

(without dialogue, that is)

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Love that they’re doing Dany’s return silently

Nina 14 hours ago

So there’s a definite book thing, the dragonglass cache on Dragonstone.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Digging the score, as always

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Wait, Jorah?!?!

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

That scene with Sandor and the Brotherhood showed more care and attention to character than a lot of other scenes recently.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Ah, Dragonstone and the dragonglass…ok that’s good setup.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

So it’s gonna end on Dragonstone, it looks like?

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Lovely shot of the Hightower there

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Wall’s going down soon but WordPress isn’t waiting for a dramatically appropriate moment.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Intense scene with Sandor and Beric, tho rather repetitive.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

I like this scene with Sandor and the Brotherhood.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Thoros likes rum…I knew I liked him for a reason.

Nina 14 hours ago

Agreed. The Ed Sheeran scene was probably my favorite of this ep so far

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

We’re having some tech issues here.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Lots of technical difficulties!

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Not a bad scene.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

So based on how they’re so insistent on it not happening, the Wall’s coming down this episode, right?

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

You can tell these are nice Lannister soldiers because they’re clean Lannister soldiers.

Nina 14 hours ago

Well, I didn’t expect to hear that song in this scene.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Hi Ed Sheeran

Nina 14 hours ago

Why is the Vale loyal to Littlefinger again?

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Sam’s stealing yet more stuff?

Nina 14 hours ago

Yeah what was the point of that convo? I believe you, but don’t bother learning about it?

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Yep, they’re borrowing heavily from the AFFC Prologue. Support for the Alchemist being after the Death of Dragons?

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

HOW WOULD HE KNOW ABOUT HER FIGHT WITH THE HOUND!

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Though I don’t know why the cut-off line between North and South seems to be the Twins.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Really like Jim Broadbent here.

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

uggggggghhhhhh The Tormund thing.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

So…every winter has ended…so don’t bother trying to figure out how?

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

This is dangerously close to being book-compliant, I think.

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

The Human Centipede 2 had less fecal matter.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Marwyn read WOIAF!

Nina 14 hours ago

I will say though, very happy for the chains on the books.

Nina 14 hours ago

Yeah, the editing was nice, I just wish it hadn’t been about shit

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

Is Cersei Victarion in this?! Because obviously, he’s talking about Dany. And I guess he’s kind of playing the Aurane Waters role? Almost? (aside from the fact that Cersei hasn’t built his fleet for him)

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Well, they got the maesters keeping secrets right

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

I think I’m going to postpone eating after this montage.

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Gross, but that was a nice use of montage.

Nina 14 hours ago

Ah, only the classy humor for GoT

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

This is an entirely too long scene about shit

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

HIS STATEMENTS TO CERSEI WERE CERTAINLY LOADED, WEREN’T THEY?!

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

So they’re giving Sam part of Pate’s story, I see.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Citadel, baby. I’m home.

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

GDI D&D! I’M EATING! (CHEESE, TO GO WITH MY WINE)

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

BACK TO HOGWARTS!!!

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Some correct notes on Euron–contempt for the Ironborn, enjoying the deaths of his family. Mostly not, though.

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Waitwaitwait, that’s supposed to be Euron? He looks like a stage magician.

Nina 14 hours ago

Hey! An accurate book reference!

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

AND SHE KNOWS ABOUT EURON AND BALON AS WELL! WHOOPIE!

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

Ok, I’m actually enjoying Euron here, which is a big change.

Nina 14 hours ago

YES EMMETT

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

Well, LadyFrey didn’t know who Arya was.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Is anyone else having Captain Boomerang flashbacks?

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

I LOVE that the amazingly-changing Jaime is suddenly smart!

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

So he did find trees on the Iron Islands.

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Hi sexy hipster Euron

Nina 14 hours ago

So they know Walder is dead, but don’t know what happened, even though Arya explicitly left a witness?

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

That was a nice line from Cersei about oathbreaking, and from Jaime about the Ironborn

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

Look at my boy’s ships I’m so proud of him

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

So did she have this floor painting commissioned just for this expository monologue?

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

GREEEEEYYYYYJJJOOOOOOY

Nina 14 hours ago

Also how does she know about Olenna?

Emmett Booth 14 hours ago

We Have To Talk About Tommen

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

aaaaaand here comes Euron!

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

Does Jaime have any thoughts on Cersei blowing up the sept at all?!

StevenAttewell 14 hours ago

I’m surprised how sensible Jaime and Cersei are being here.

Nina 14 hours ago

By magic, Attewell. Lannister mind magic.

WendyWrites 14 hours ago

The TARDIS, Steven, the TARDIS told her.

Nina 14 hours ago

“What we’ve been waiting for our whole lives”. A floor painting?

TurtlePaced 14 hours ago

I certainly hope that what Sansa learned from Cersei was how not.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

“Stannis left Dragonstone unoccupied” screw you

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Wait, how the hell does Cersei know Tyrion is Dany’s hand?

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Lena Heady is the MVP. But it’s really weird that she knows Jaime freed Tyrion.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Jon’s not an asshat. Jon’s “noble” and of course Sansa is Cersei’s student FML

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

Ugh, that Ned- and Robb-bashing.

Nina 15 hours ago

“By listening to you?” Um, yes?

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Seriously, though, the bob looks amazing on Cersei. So she does owe the Sparrows SOMETHING

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

“If I am ever queen, I’ll find a way to make them love me,” need i remind you

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

Well, I’m glad we got gender equality sorted in the first ten minutes of the season. What’s next?

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

You’re turning Sansa into Cersei’s student? Please, no, do not do that

Nina 15 hours ago

You’re good at this, I say, based on nothing

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Jon’s being a complete asshat, yes?

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Robb and Ned were not stupid! Fuck you, Benioff and Weiss.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

UGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH KILLL ME NOW

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

UGH YES JON, LISTEN TO HER!!!!

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Jon, leaping to the Joff comparison is *super* childish

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Well, Jon does have those rising strings to help him, Emmett.

Nina 15 hours ago

Alys! My sweet Alys!

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Which apparently convinced him that he was Bran Stark because…?

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Ugh.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Which apparently convinced him that he was Bran Stark because…?

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Altho yes Alys is a fave

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

This could be easily fixed if Sansa was consciously playing the bad cop.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Look, I admire what Jon is saying, but this is just way too easy

Nina 15 hours ago

Don’t you use Smalljon’s name as a Ramsay supporter. Or Harry Karstark’s.

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Hey, Alys Karstark!

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Ah, now we’re getting the Jon vs. Sansa plotline. Then again, Sansa should now that you have this conversation at the premeeting not the meeting.

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

Oh dear. Kit’s not bringing it. Even if this actually sensible.

Nina 15 hours ago

We’re ok with training girls, just not making them queen

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

So Sansa, you should be…in charge

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

And telling Edd about every scene he’s in.

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Agreed. He’s pretty low-energy here. But I like the preparation.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Sansa Stark, Castle Rights Activist

Nina 15 hours ago

Everyone seems pretty calm about Bran Stark and a northern noblewoman showing up from beyond the Wall

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Yeah, more trippiness from Bran is always welcome.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Oh, look, they’re actually integrating SOME of Jon’s ADWD plotline.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Kit, honey, wake up

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Ugh, Lyanna Mormont. Another ruined character.

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Ok, clairvoyant Bran I can get behind.

Nina 15 hours ago

But where are the wight bears?

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

I’m kinda hoping for some Attenborough narration over this shot of the tundra.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Oh totally, my Oldtown-lovin’ heart skipped a beat

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

And that convinces Edd… why? Exactly?

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

I mean, I’m not NOT here for wight giants

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

This just makes me wish George Romero wasn’t dead

Nina 15 hours ago

The little map thing *(?) for Oldtown is very nice tho

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Oh, good, so Bran will be in this season. Nice.

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

So after that speech about how the Freys should have ripped House Stark out root and stem, she left people alive? Good thinking.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

And I can’t see shit, what a change of pace for this show.

Nina 15 hours ago

In conclusion, killing a famously large House turns out to be a one man job

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

And now George with the weather

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

DOR-O-THY WE HAVE TO FIND DOR-O-THY!

GET IN THE CELLAR, MAY!

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Ooh, Oldtown on the map is nice,

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

C’mon, just keel over dead, I know it’s coming.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Written by David “Bad Pussy” Benioff and DB Why. Always a good sign.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

“And then Big Walder walked in, nodded, and smiled”

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

I feel like “the North remembers” and “winter came for House Frey” is over-egging the pudding. Choose one!

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Farewell, House Frey. I liked your little hats

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

It is, but she didn’t do it with Needle, her ‘instrument of revenge’

Nina 15 hours ago

I love that they’re focusing on this nonsense plot, like doubling down on it

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

peter dinklage…peter dinklage…peter dinklage…

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Arya doesn’t have time for sheeple

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

It’s an obvious twist, but this is a fun scene.

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

I’ve finally hit episode, five minutes later.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Did anyone really think he WOULDN’T be Arya?!

Nina 15 hours ago

I still vote my House words, Attewell

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Stand Together is a subpar House Words.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Ha, absolutely

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

IT CONTAINS EIGHTH GRADE BOOK REPORTS!!!!

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

So does this add to my Red Wedding 2.0 theory?

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Don’t let him be Arya Don’t let him be Arya

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

What a surprise, arya’s poisoning them all.

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

“This program is classified MA15+. It contains themes.” Filthy lies!

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

And apparently Walder is Lord of the Riverlands WITH LF!

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

I’m being shown a preview for a preview.

Nina 15 hours ago

Mine seems to be slightly behind, so hooray for delayed reactions!

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

And apparently Arya saw the Red Wedding episode as well.

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

That baby is bigger, true.

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Sam has made it to Hogwarts and Gillys baby has turned two after five years.

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

kween

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

And it looks like this will be a regular duration episode (with ten minutes of previously ons)

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Oh boy, previews! Hoorah!

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

And we’re off!

Emmett Booth 15 hours ago

Heyo

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

I still have three mini-bottles of moscato and plenty of brie!

TurtlePaced 15 hours ago

Present and accounted for!

StevenAttewell 15 hours ago

Hail and well met!

Nina 15 hours ago

Hello!

WendyWrites 15 hours ago

Hello everyone!

  1. Steve Reineccius says:

    Go fucking Aria!

  2. Murc says:

    I’ll be honest. I don’t really watch the show anymore, per se. I watch… scenes from the show to see how some of my favorite characters might interact with each other. The actual plotlines mostly lost me two, two and a half years back.

    I want two things from this season. I want to watch Arya end House Frey, and I want to see Tyrion ride a dragon. They’ve delivered on one. All they gotta do is deliver on two.

    (Okay, technically what I really want to see is Tyrion go “Viserion, yip-yip!” but I realize that this will never happen.)

  3. Keith B says:

    This episode was … not too horrible. I was surprised by how disappointed I wasn’t. Don’t much care for the depiction of Euron, but other than that, it was better than most of what they’ve had the past two seasons.

  4. Sian Griffith says:

    Arya magically turned into a supernatural shapeshifter who can perfectly impersonate a person of any gender, age, height, speech pattern, etc. I don’t know what I am watching anymore – GOT or one of the modern urban supernatural fantasies. Common sense left this show never to return. It is still a cool show, but in a horribly stupid kind of way. So bad that it is good. Quite a journey from seasons 1-3.

  5. Stannerman says:

    The show has become the ultimate fan service and it has been so since Season 5. I no longer consider it canonical, but just a fanfic written by Dumb & Dumber (Benioff & Weiss).

    • Mr Fixit says:

      Honest advice to all the contributors to this joint tumblr thing: stop. There is something awkwardly embarrassing about reading the real time thoughts of a bunch of asoiaf prominent fans and theorists when those thoughts amount to little more than constant cynical whine Linda would be proud of.

      I have no problems with negative criticism, but that was so vapid, shallow, and self-obsessed from almost all concerned… The incessant lofty condescension (imagined with a Brit accent for maximum effect)… Barely anything of value about the episode itself could be gleaned from that transcript. Just ugh.
