The recent season finale for HBO’s Game of Thrones did its usual job of shocking viewers who maybe thought they had the whole thing figured out. By this point, even book readers are likely to be a little shocked since the show has more or less used up all the material George R.R. Martin had published officially to date, with changes made and some characters (Lady Stoneheart for example) being completely omited.

Besides, major changes were made this year the instant Sansa turned up in at a certain northern location.
Does that count as a SPOILER? I don’t think so. There may be more after the cut where I make my predictions for next year.

In fact, I wasn’t planning on watching episode 3 as soon as it was available but Silicon Valley and Veep were not online yet. This episode, however, finally delivered on all of the excitement I was craving.
