Agreed! Loved that final scene!

I think it's going to be quite the opposite of what we think it's going to be. I mean if Jamie didn't push him off that Tower he would have never realized his powers. Besides, I don't think the three-eyed Raven has any desire to fight anyone besides the night King.

After giving it some time to sink in the only thing that felt a bit off was Sam's reaction. At first it seemed normal but then when he immediately went and talk to Bran and then to Jon by Bran's request, just seemed to be played a bit weird on his part considering the news he had just received, but who knows what's going through his mind considering he hated his father and brother to begin with.

I thought both scenes were a bit odd. Some loved his acting when hearing his father, then brother died. Weighty scene. And then I found it a bit odd Bran would ask Sam to tell him... being no one really talks to Bran anymore, as he's not quite himself. Although Arya Stark is herself again, after being 'a girl' for so long. But it's a great layering to have Sam lose his father and brother to Dany, confront Jon about it, and then tell him he's the king heir to the throne and a Targaryen.

Yeah that whole scene was confusing. I mean he loved his father and brother in a sense that they were his blood and of house tarly, but think the biggest part of it was shocked about hearing of his father and then assuming his brother was the head of the family and then finding out he was dead, also I'm sure it hit him that he is now the head of house tarly. I do agree though about bran, it was strange that he wanted Sam to do it. He knows Jon trust Sam though and would probably find it easier coming from him then Bran who no longer even Associates himself as his brother. I don't know, but I just felt like Sam sucked it up and got over it all pretty quickly to go from one hammering issue he knew nothing about 2 revealing to John who he really is. I think eventually though Daenerys is going to piss off too many people in Winterfell and that's going to cause a big problem. At the same time though, I don't know if it's just an Improvement in her acting skills or what, but Emilia Clarke seems to be a lot more three dimensional this time around with her characters than she has in previous Seasons, unless that's just their way of illustrating that she is in love and she can actually smile like that when she is in the right mindset. I don't know, I just hope nothing bad happens to Arya. She is my lady of Winterfell.

Also, yeah I know it's because of their age, but time has passed on the show oh, I'm not sure how much time, but enough for Jamie to have grown a full beard and groomed it and Sansa seems to know a whole lot more about her position then she did at the end of season 7. With that said, I still think there could be a hope for her and Tyrion. What she said to him came as quite a surprise to me.

Last night's episode was even better than last week's episode! I absolutely love Maisie Williams but that one particular scene only fueled my desire even more.

I have a slight suspicion though that Jorah might still be a spy. He was originally working through Varyse under the advisement of Robert Baratheon. But it was Varyse who originally helped Tyrion escape King's Landing. Anytime his loyalty has ever been questioned he has always said he does what's best for the realm, so who's to say what he's doing now isn't the best for the realm in his mind and still Plies loyal to Cersei?

With Jorah, I realize he is in love with Daenerys, but the fact that he keeps coming back and his behavior in this past episode itself, makes me wonder.

Also, I'm pretty certain Sam will live, or at least I'm hoping he does, but how fucked up would it be if Jorah killed him with his family's sword after he saved his life?
