Wow, that was intense. I mean, jebus, that was intense. Probably the most emotionally taut episode of the whole series.
Arya and Gendry - I suppose we shouldn't have been surprised. Did they do it for the right reasons? I'm not sure Arya did, judging by their post-coital shot.
Arya and the Hound - slightly less anti-climactic. <3 his reminder, "I fought for you."
Sansa and Dany - wow, a lot of yanking us around on that one. They hate each other. They're okay with each other. They hate each other.
Sansa and Theon - who knew?
Jorah and Lyanna - perfect.
Jorah and Sam - perfect.
Missandei and Grey Worm just made me sad. All their sacrifices.
Bran and Jaime - if that was less of an emotional scene, it's because TER.
Jaime/Sansa/Dany/Jon - Something about this scene made me fear he's going to switch sides, if he survives. He's accounted for his actions with Bran, but he's still maintaining what he did to Ned and his men was a-okay. It was not, it was an escalation of hostilities that no one ever commanded him to do. Cat did something stupid in taking Tyrion, but no one declared war in that act's wake.
Dany and Jon - at first I thought it was a truly wrong move, to tell Dany the truth, going into the battle. On second thought, though, letting her go into war against the NK with that knowledge allows her to process it in the background and put the most important thing up as a priority.
Fireside chat people: great scene. There was so much going on there, but it was kind of amusing to see Jaime's reaction to Tormund courting Brienne, among other things.
