Did anyone else stay up to watch it?

What did you think of the ending? I was shock

emilybohemia Mon 25-Apr-16 09:25:05

I loved it and thoughtif that kind of 'illusion' is possile, then perhaps Jon Snow being dead is also an illusion. Or maybe just my wishful thinking.

I am fuming that I have to wait another week, then another and another! This is why I usually wait til a series is finished before I watch it. I started GoT 2 years ago and was so glad I didn't do it any sooner or I'd have gone mad by now. Is it awful to hope for a leak of some extra episodes the same as last year?

Anyway....the episode was really good, not a massive amount in it but that ending was a shock to me. Although it does make sense as she has said before (to Stannis' wife about the bottles in her room) that she creates a lot of illusion so not a big stretch to see her appearance is an illusion of sorts too.

So very happy to see Brienne rescue Sansa (for now, I feel there's plenty more trouble coming their way) as when the Bolton men found her in the tree roots I was gutted that Ramsey would be able to make her pay for what she has done. I think she's suffered enough now and would like to see her make it to Castle Black, even if Jon is dead(ish).

Speaking of Jon, I don't know. I really don't. After rewatching the entire show last month I realised I don't actually like him as much as others do. He's a bit dull. But I do like what he stands for and liked his storyline up until now. Hopefully The Red Woman can bring him back to life and we don't end up with a watered down version of him or an altered version (all Lord of Light loving and ready to follow the advice of The Red Woman).

Liked the Dorne scenes. I was actually think Elaria was right, he is weak and didn't avenge his siblings so he should go. Just not sure what she is planning and I actually liked Marcella so was a bit pissed she killed her instead of taking the fight to Cersei herself. And I honestly thought Tristain would kill at least one of the sand snakes before Bronn or Jamie rescued him. Shocked by the spear to the face.

I have to get me one of those necklaces. The Sand Snakes can't act for toffee btw

nipersvest Mon 25-Apr-16 11:30:28

if that necklace can do that for the red women, i wonder what it can do if it was placed round the neck of jon snow?

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 11:39:09

I think I'm the person who really doesn't care if JS is dead. In fact I hope he is - don't want any more surprise resurrections - what's the point in killing characters off and then just bringing them back? It's like bleedin Eastenders grin

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 11:40:18

Was more 'oh' about red woman than shocked. Delighted about Brienne arriving to rescue Sansa and Theon. They've been through enough!

yumyumpoppycat Mon 25-Apr-16 12:11:37

OOh emily, like that idea of illusion, it was a bit weird he was just lying there. I am expecting him to wake up wightwalker style.

I wasn't surprised by the redwoman, but thought it was an excellent and strange way to end the episode rather than the anticipated resurrection. She doesn't 'seem young', I figured she most be older than she looked and she is a witch after all, it reminded me of tangled grin Interesting how she looked sad, pos about the fact she was wrong about her prophecy for stannis?

It was bordering cheesy, but I loved the Sansa and theon scene, I think because it was entirely possible in GoT that the shit thing will happen it was an air-punch moment when it didn't, esp when theon killed the last soldier.

Quite liked that cersei didnt blame Jamie and that they are united, even though I don't esp like that relationship. I did like him turning 'good' though and wanted him to end up with brianna so guess thats all off!

limitedperiodonly Mon 25-Apr-16 13:48:09

I think they'd burn him to stop him turning into a wight. It's very convenient they're keeping his body around.

I thought the Dornish prince whose name I've forgotten was on the ship with Jaime and Marcella. Obviously not. Why was he painting the stone eye? Did he know that she was dead?

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 13:57:49

he was on the ship, they must have followed them? I thought he was sent to KL to marry Myrcella.

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 14:08:23

Just checked last ep of season 5 and Trystane definitely got on the ship.

wickedlazy Mon 25-Apr-16 14:31:40

Did Jaime maybe put Tristane ashore after Myrcella died?

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 14:34:09

Well after Ellaria killed Doran and she said 'no son of yours shall ever rule Dorne' it cut to exterior of a ship and then the Sand Snakes going into Trystane's room (which looked like a cabin). Was there two ships maybe?

NuggetofPurestGreen Mon 25-Apr-16 14:34:48

Or maybe they sent him back after Myrcella died as you say.

limitedperiodonly Mon 25-Apr-16 14:49:19

Trystane and Myrcella - that's it. It's not worth me remembering them now, poor children.

It did look like the inside of a ship's cabin

limitedperiodonly Mon 25-Apr-16 14:52:38

Young Melisandre has amazing tits with really high up nipples. I don't think mine were ever like that and they won't be now sad I'm contemplating death or the body of the old Mel. I'm thinking about it...

yumyumpoppycat Mon 25-Apr-16 14:58:57

Defo more old mel here too - despairs

emilybohemia Mon 25-Apr-16 18:25:30

Yumyum, she's sort of like 'crone' too, one of the old gods. Or is she kind of a faceless man too? She sent a 'shadow' to kill Renly so I wonder what kind of illusions she is capable of.

There was an article on Azor Azhai and how he may be related to Zoroastrianism which was interesting.

I wasn't overly impressed. It was a bit anti climax. The best part was the sansa and theon scene.

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Mon 25-Apr-16 18:43:48

I absolutely loved it. Best bit was Brienne swearing fealty to Sansa, but it was good to have a roundup of most of the key characters. I particularly liked Ramsay's order about what to do with Myranda's body. shock grin

originalmavis Mon 25-Apr-16 18:46:37

We need a crib sheet with names, photos and mini biog. I can't keep up!

MY QUEEN

TheSecondOfHerName Mon 25-Apr-16 19:08:17

I loved it.

Equiem89 Mon 25-Apr-16 20:27:57

I started watching in season 4. I binge watched the first 8 episodes in one day.
So frustrating having to wait a week!
Loved Brienne rescuing Sansa, the Dothraki when they realised Dany could understand them!
Are there rumours about the Dothraki being her army and she manages to get them over the sea?

desperatehousewife21 Mon 25-Apr-16 20:44:28

I can't for the life of me remember what happened to Aria's eyes and why she is blind!?
