First reaction was NOOOOO! NOT MARGAERY! WHY MARGAERY? TAKE ALL THE STARKS JUST LEAVE MARGAERY ALONE!
Second reaction well played Cersei...........almost. Seem like a very Cersei way to "fix" a problem, with all the forethought and subtly I've come to expect from her. Killing (almost) all of her political rivals at the low, low cost of her last surviving child. Also did anyone else's heart break for poor Tommen? A king but never the master of his own destiny, constantly being treated as a prize to be won and fought over, and not as a real person. On top of all the manipulating and conniving he had to deal with he also lost his wife and his mother in one fell swoop. I'm not surprised he did what he did, however this has only made Cersei more dangerous as now she has nothing left to lose.
Like many other fans not surprised at all by the Jon revelation and was honestly just waiting for them to get it over with.
Was not at all expecting to see Arya's appearance but good on her! A little gruesome even by GoT standards but nothing the Frey's didn't really deserve. Anyone else really want to see the return of dynamic duo of Arya and Sandor?
Actually managed to forget that Sam existed so I guess its good that the show reminded that he's not dead in a ditch somewhere. Anyone think that since we now have a whole bunch of female leaders that Gilly might be the first female Maester?
Mixed feelings about Melisandre's exile. On the one hand she committed horrible crimes, without flinching, in the name of faith and her god. On the other hand her recent humbling has made her a much more likeable character and she seems to, finally, have genuine remorse for all the people she killed, including Shireen.
I guess I always knew we would return to Dorne as there was never any real resolution there. Though I hope the Queen of Thorns herself is the one to end Cersei. FOR MARGAERY!
Damn Daenerys is cold. Feeling nothing but impatience for a man who stood beside you for so long. I suppose its understandable because no one could ever replace Drogo in her eyes.
Jamie has come a long way from the guy who crippled a young kid for life. You can definitely see him beginning to enter a crisis of conscience. All of his children are now dead,and the last death being a direct consequence of Cersei's actions. I would not be surprised if the Kingslayer is forced to come full circle and kill Mad Queen Cersei. Regardless of what happens next its clear, to me at least, that Jamie has lost faith in Cersei and will soon be reevaluating the price of his devotion to her.
Lady Mormont is officially my new favorite character. She manages to single-handily reunite the Northern Lords under the Stark name and she only 10!
I'm not sure how much of a prize Jon is to Dany. The Northern Lords have once again proclaimed a King in the North, which is tantamount to open rebellion. While Jon might not be seeking a crown the other lords would be wary to bend knee to another outsider especially to an unknown Targaryen.I also imagine that Dany would like to be Queen of the Seven Kingdoms not the Five or Six Kingdoms. Additionally if his true parentage is ever discovered Jon becomes an immediate threat to her power.
Tyrion might make a good political match, loyal, hard working, and would have a claim to the Westerlands, considering Kevan and Lancel are dead and Jamie was in the Kingsguard.
Assuming Jamie survives Dany's conquest he might also make a good match all the same qualifications as Tyrion and is at least moderately popular withe the court. Though Cersei would have to be out of the picture first.
She might entertain Euron's attempts to marry he if only as a way to catch him off guard and make her move against him.
Unfortunately with Trystane and Loras dead Dorne and The Reach have no one to offer atleast in the higher noble houses.
There is also Petyr who will do anything to advance his political standing. Hopefully Dany would see that poison apple coming a mile away.
