    I'm on phone right now and at the moment can't type a long answer, so sorry if this is unhelpful and possibly comes off snarky, but I'm truly curious: you're invested in this season?
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    That song Ed Sheeran was singing was the one from the books, composed to tell the story of Tyrion's secret affair with Shae. But in the context of the show, it kind of sounds like it's about Jamie. Foreshadowing?

    Also, I've long thought that Arya would be the one to kill Cersei. But now that she is actually heading that direction, I'm having big doubts. She just seems too confident right now. Everything is too easy for her thus far. To quote Whoopi Goldberg, "You in danger, girl."

    So apparently Ed Sheeran is a singer that exists. Is he going to be a regular character or was the cameo the whole point of the scene?

    I think he was probably just a singer Arya encountered along the road. But who knows?

    I would think it was a cameo. At least one musical talent has cameoed once a season.

    That's my thought too after the episode.

    I almost wonder if Gregor would be immune to the "masks" and would pick up on it immediately.

    Or, she runs into Melisandre.

    Or both.

    The other brother, Sandor, might have the best "arc" out of all the characters at this point. Every scene he's in is terrific.

    This reunion was promised the first time they met. Melisandre saw it in their future.

    Other thoughts:

    -How unrecognizable will Jorah be when we inevitably see his face? Unsure if he went to Oldtown to do the research himself, but he sure traveled pretty far. Oldtown is on the other end of the country from King's Landing. He won't be see Dany anytime soon.

    -People describing the Ed Sheeran scene as a "jumping the shark" type of scene is silly. I don't recognize Ed, and it was a nice contrast for Arya's character.

    -Littlefinger, hopefully for the sake of his character, has something planned beyond what Sansa thinks he has planned.

    -I mentioned it in the other thread, but TOrmund sure seems like a recognizable guy that's destined for death in the very near future.

    -Where are Gregor and Beric at on the map? Are they heading for The Wall?

    Beric and Thoros and Gregor are in the Riverlands. Not sure if we have a more specific location than that.

    Here's the thing - I appreciate what the scene is trying to do, which is show how Arya is not accostumed to deal with basic human decency at this stage. But the kindness of the soldiers was so overplayed in contrast to everyone else we've met in this world that the scene turned into unintentional parody, at least for me.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havent entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    God, the internet is terrible. Non-issue. He didn't look out of place. His performance was fine. What is wrong with people that they obsess over this?

    Why does him being a celebrity excuse people being shit?

    Well, they are all Lannister soldiers to boot, so I'm pretty sure this scene is to test how much humanity Arya has left. I will be curious to see what their fate is next episode. I think it's 50/50 that Arya slits all their throats as they sleep.

    Yeah, it's strange that they didn't have at least one token a-hole character to give the rest of them something to contrast off of. It did kind of make it seem like Arya had wandered into a different world or something.

    Three questions:

    1) Did you really intend to draw a comparison between Ed Sheeran and John Lennon?

    2) Do you plan to keep this shit up for the next 6 weeks?

    3) What gives?

    Eh, I think Spinal was just messing with you. It is a little funny that you ask to be updated on a show like Game of Thrones when you've missed 30-40 hours of plot.

    It was a darkly humorous joke. Here's another one:

    "What's cold and dead and wants to hold your hand?"
    "John Lennon."
