Spoiler tags abounding?

Aeris dies.

Wait. That's wrong.

Ned dies.

Almost equivalent spoilers.
Last episode based spoiler, but actually future episode prediction.
Arya is definitely going to kill Littlefinger.

Same episode.
The RDM was thinking that before seeing this episode...now not so much. Seeing Littlefinger so shaken by Bran quoting his chaos speech and later by Arya being a super fighter with his special dagger made the RDM doubt it. Seems too telegraphed now. More likely, the RDM thinks, Littlefinger is going to do something the screws the Starks over big time. Might even get Arya killed. Sansa probably kills him.

Might be right about Sansa. No question he does one last thing to screw them over. It wouldn't be Littlefinger if he didn't manage that. If he's familiar enough with the Faceless Men he might have caught Arya's meaning. That would be bad for her.

It's because we love you, Joei.

Why would it be bad? No one in the North is likely to care much, and the Faceless Men already know who she is, they can totally find her is they want to bother.

It would be bad because she would lose some advantage if he knows what she can do. Don't get me wrong, I'm certain she could demolish him either way in a straight fight, but the more he knows the more chance he has to cause trouble. Plus, I think Sansa is already getting a little disturbed.

Sansa is just jealous because she's the only one what ain't got no magic powers.

That's true.

I definitely want Arya to kill Mad Queen Cersei. She'll probably die eventually some way, but I'm afraid I won't get my wish. More than any other character on her list, I really want to see her get that revenge on Cersei. Preferably, using Ned Stark's face.

I don't think that will happen, but we'll see I guess.

The RDM doesn't think it will happen. Valonquar prophecy and all that.

There are interpretations of that prophecy for which it could potentially fit, though I admit it's a stretch.

Most likely candidate is Jaime. It's worth noting though that Arya can also "be" anyone who dies. I don't know if she's limited to people who've died, but I assume that's the way it works.

The RDM assumed last year that the "little brother" would be Tommen, and that his suicide was the thing that choked her to death. She seems to be doing okay just now, though.

Pretty predictable end to tonight's episode

As soon as they showed us what the dragons could do in recent episodes, I was wondering what the White Walkers could do to face that, and the conclusion I came to was that they would probably need to make a Wight Dragon. It was also foreshadowed more or less with the wight bears earlier in the episode. Granted, given how easily the Night King dispensed with a dragon and the fact there are only three of them, I suppose I wouldn't so much maintain the position that they NEED a wight dragon, but still they had a dead dragon right there, so of course they were going to use it.

The RDM had heard rumors somewhere that there was supposed to be an ice dragon frozen inside The Wall. Doesn't mean there isn't one, he supposes, but this seems less out of nowhere.

I wonder if it breathes ice then? Seems like it probably wouldn't breathe fire anymore, because that would kill it.
If the Night King is really smart, he'll use it to attack King's Landing while Daenerys is there. Cersei will just assume it means Daenerys was tricking her.

It probably can't go past the wall. Magic barrier and all that. Also, he has no way of knowing about that nonsense meeting.

Unless he's like Bran and has read the whole script beforehand. He might have one weird trick up his sleeve to bypass all this.

Also,
did the writers of this series also work on the WoW Lich King expansion? Because the zombie ice dragon seems super familiar. Then again, it could just be that the Lich King guys are well informed GoT fans. It wouldn't be that surprising after all.

Anyway, let's see if I understood that well:

So, now the real enemy has access to nuclear weapons/proper WMDs, the only options are:
- a cold war in which no one ends up using dragon fire/ice ever again, if the "good guys" manage to work together to form some kind of NATO alliance. Which means Winterfell will soon end up with its own dragon so it can be a proper gatekeeper.
- a nuclear war in which pretty much everyone involved ends up dying.

It's ok though, because either way the plot needs to take at the very least a decade or so before Sam Jr/baby Jesus can become the ruler of the new world order, when we learn that he's actually Aemon's grandson/great-grandson, or something.

Not sure how they could fit that in 7 or so episodes though, unless they do a final episode à la RotK's epilogue/ending in the LotR trilogy.

Yeah, I kind of thought he could read the script like Bran. At least he doesn't talk though. So we don't have him creepily talking to characters about when they were raped. Stupid Bran. I completely forgot about Aemon being a Targaryen

Speaking of Bran: which Stark is going to die next week?

The One Weird Trick is probably the Horn of Winter (or some other such thing) that takes the whole wall down. Much more dramatic than just walking by the thing.
