    I think Sansa or Tyrion would be the most meaningful for her, as she blames both for the death her children.

    Im not sure how Euron would know that though.

    Yeah...I'm sure Euron is going to get Sansa with his huge armada and Winterfell being right on the coast....oh wait.

    Sansa is a thousand miles away in Winterfell during winter. Not going to be her unless Littlefinger has somehow allied with Euron and I dont see that happening

    Could Euron know of Arya being back?

    That I very much doubt.

    Even if people did know she was alive, she's no threat to anyone's claim and no one knows that's she murking folks. There's no reason for anyone to care about her.

    That could of been the giant that died when Mance attacked the Wall a couple seasons ago.

    There was more than one giant in that shot. All those people/giants/whatever have prob been dead for 100s if not thousands of years. Doesn't have to be anyone that's died recently

    I think that song Ed Sheeran was singing was possibly very important. It may have been foreshadowing of Jaimie being the Valoquar with the importance of the moment being disguised by the hey look it is a cameo by a pop star moment.

    True. Just saying with the eye missing didn't the nights watch put a huge arrow through its eye? Probably just a coincidence though

    In my experience in dealing with giants if you're going to kill one you better go for the eyes first. Pretty common injury amongst giant corpses.

    I like the show, but can we stop pretending it's ever given a fuck about the logistics of its plot points? If they want Euron to get Sansa, they won't let the fact that Winterfell is inland stop them.

    Lol they literally had the characters say exactly this on the show tonight.

    Jon: Cersei cant come here its winter her armies cant survive here and kings landing is 1000 miles away
    Sansa: lol you sweet child of summer let me tell you about a thing called plot device

    Btw that was just an example, not trying to single anyone out. Just saying that if you're theorising about future episodes, bear in mind that things don't always have to make sense. There's been a ton of plot magic shenanigans. Again, I still think the show is very good. But that's the way it is.

    some early guesses.

    - Euron captures or kills a dragon (the dragon has three heads is book stuff, never been said on the show, the non-Drogon dragons are very vulnerable to writers)
    - Dondarrion pulls a LSH, brings someone back (that entire shot of him talking about why he was there had a corpse in the background)
    - Cersei survives season 7

    They burned all the dead after the battle of the wall. The freefolk and nights watch knew whats up

    its just a random giant

    Can't see Cersei making it past this season. They basically threw the alley-oop to the valonquar prophecy with the ed/symon song.

    Cersei won't see Tyrion this season. Seeing Tyrion has to happen because Jaime has to make the choice between Tyrion and Cersei.

    Arya killing Cersei is only way she dies this season but that throws the prophecy in the trash (although again, book prophecy not show prophecy). Euron has to die first, too. Cersei has to be the last bad guy standing before the Night King, don't see them doing both of them in during a 7 episode season unless he dies in a couple weeks. my guess for big battle is Cersei/Euron vs all, Euron dies, Cersei retreats and goes insane, Jaime kills her early next season. 8th season is only 6 episodes but early reports are the lengths will probably make it more like a 8ish episode season and they're not going to spend like 5-6 hours in "prep" for the final battle (what I'd assume is all of the penultimate episode and part of the finale), there still needs to be plot to be driven early next season and Cersei staying alive will do that.

    Jamie kills Cersei. The last thing she sees is her brother running a sword through her.

    After she's dead Jamie takes off his face and it's Arya.

    Littlefinger will make a play at some point. He isn't going to fall in line behind Jon. But you are right it wouldn't make sense for him to be in cahoots with Euron at this point.

    Gendry is north, Euron is about to sail towards DragonStone and take on Yara's fleet in the Battle of the Blackwater part 2

    plot holes ahoy in this show but the writers aren't mongs. they're not going to randomly bring in Gendry or Arya or anyone else that virtually nobody knows are even alive up in random conversation amongst people like LF or Cersei or whomever.

    I know Gendry makes an appearance this season but he doesn't have a big sign over his head that says "King Robert's bastard". there's 3 people that even know who he is and that's Arya, Davos, and Mel. meeting Mel would actually give a reason for her character to appear since Jon cast her out. highly doubt he'd run into Davos again. meeting Arya maybe even next week or so wouldn't be out of the question.

    Arya's not considered dead but the last people to see her alive that aren't Faceless Men are either near the Wall (Brienne, Pod) or going to the Wall (Hound) and none of them would ever relay info that would ever filter back down to anyone in the south.

    I'd be shocked if Arya didn't end up at Winterfell this season which means there will need to be something that happens to her that makes her turn around eventually (perhaps next week's spoilers make her think about home).

    Euron's capturing the sand snakes who killed Myrcella and presenting them to Cersei

    iirc they're on the water, approaching Dragonstone from Dorne I believe with Olenna separate from Dany and everyone else

    I wasn't thinking she would kill him. But you're right it would involve Jamie dying off screen; He deserves better than that.

    When Sam shows up in the books the archmaester tells him to keep everything a secret. the archmaester then heads off in an effort to be the maester for Dany.

    pretty solid opener compared to the last couple seasons. Arya decimating the Freys,
    Bran and Edd, Euron & Cersei, etc.

    The hound scene totally made the episode...pretty solid all around. Yeah there was some dumb plot devices like Euron having his badass fleet all ready and all. Cersei knowing the exact status of every enemy she has to face, etc but whatevs. I'm just happy for new content

    yea, euron built a 1000 ships in like 3 weeks? wtf

    I get that this is a fictional universe and not really the middle-ages, but it still took 2+ years to build a ship in those days

    Oh and the Sam in Oldtown daily routine montage was pretty well done. At least that made it seem like Sam found the info he needed after some time and not the first time he snuck in the library's restricted section

    aging the kid was overdue but it's been a very short amount of time between seasons, hence Arya (as Walder) saying "two feasts in a fortnight".

    She took their best ships but not all , and Euron ordered everyone to cut down every tree and build him a fleet. Little Sam is older by a year or two at least.
