The internet never forgets. I was such a stupid boy....

OK, I'll step up and say I was full of it. That was just the anger talking. I'm totally excited, geeking out, and ready for tonight.

Interesting first episode. Seems like the first episode of every season is devoted to rearranging the deck chairs so to speak. Move all the pieces to their next location so the fun can begin. Surprising number of one-liners and quips tonight. They still have a lot to do in 5 episodes....

My single favorite shot was Drogon staring at Jon while he's trying to make out with Dany.

Said the exact same thing.

When Tormond and gang were in the Last Hearth, I was rolling when they encountered the other group and yelled out "He has Blue eyes" only to reply "I've always had blue eyes".

All of Maggie the Frog's prophecy has come true so far.

So...

Who is the valonquar who will kill Cersei? Jaime, or Tyrion? Tyrion's already strangled one woman, and the prophecy refers to choking the life out of Cersei, so my mind's gone that direction.

The interesting part in all that will be the fact that both Jamie and Tyrion are pretty-much on Cersei's "kill on sight" list. I'm trying to think of a scenario where they could be in close proximity, and the Mountain would have to be gone of off somewhere else. I might lean toward Jamie just because it seems of the two, he's more likely to get close enough. If "storming the castle" is involved, that would be Jamie I think.

Or maybe Arya. Cersei is on her "list", and it would be fitting revenge for having a role in Ned's death. Arya can also do the "faceless man" trick and get close.

I think it needs to be Jamie. It'll be much more meaningful with regard to the story since he still loves her.

I suspect the Hound will kill the Mountain.

I was under the impression she lied to get Jamie to stick around. My guess is Jamie will be the one to kill her.

I also don't think a lot of "Game of Thrones" time has passed since the end of Season 7 when we learned she was pregnant. I'd speculate that maybe only a couple weeks have transpired between that meeting with Cersei and Jamie and where we are now. I could be wrong, but it seems that way.

At least a month considering Jamie made it to WF. However, the sex between Cersei and Euron had to have been for a reason.

Well, she does have a habit of banging one dude and telling another that it's his.

How about this? Jamie dies a hero's death at the (rumored) Battle of Winterfell in Episode 3. Arya takes his face and uses it to sneak up on Cersei, pretending to wanna get back with her and then beheads her?

Cersei is supposed to die by strangling, according to Maggie the Frog (who has been right about everything so far).

Jamie only has one hand.

Tyrion has already killed a woman by strangling.

Both Jamie and Tyrion qualify for "valonquar" by definition of the word.

Good point!

As a side note, that makes me wonder... if Arya used Jamie's face, would she also get the artificial hand? So far they seem kind of squishy on what those "faces" include - voice, body type, height, etc.

Obviously we are past the books right now so I wonder if this is GRRM ending we are watching or David Benioff and D. B. Weiss ending. Im not saying the writers are going awol here but I dont think the books will be identical
