(SPOILERS) Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 8: Hardhome

Maaaaaaaaan did anyone else see yesterday's episode?

That last fight was fucking sick!

Among readers of the books, there have been many complaints that the show isn't adhering to the story and that numerous characters have been completely omitted. Honestly, at least for the purposes of the show, I like what they've done. I think the book was sorta going off the rails and the already diverse storylines were going in too many different directions. The newer characters just didn't do it for me.

Wildlings got owned! I wonder what they're gonna do with Jon Snow. In the book at this point the White Walkers hadn't arrived yet, so this could change the outcome of his stint as Lord Commander.

An interesting episode, though last week's is still my favourite. Wun Wun was pretty fucking cool - As were the rest of the Wildlings, honestly - Though, I was a tad annoyed when the Chieftainess and the Thenn died, definitely thought that they had been introduced for something bigger than what they got.

I'm most looking forwards to what Sansa will do with her new information - Jeyne Poole's storyline has become hers, and understandably so, that's for sure.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

I also loved when Tormund smashed the Lord of Bones into a bloody mess with his own stick.

I've read the recaps and I'm stoked to see it.

It sure must have sucked to be anyone beyond the gate, thats for sure. Poor Bastards didn't last long when the snow started blowing in.

The fight was awesome, its just a shame about the 5,000+ extra corpses for the White Walker army and the lost dragon glass daggers in that hut.

Last weeks episode was awesome. That scene with the wights was one of the darkest scenes I have ever seen in film history. For me, it made every other zombie attack scene less believable. And zombie wasn't even what they were going for.

Yeah, I thought this season was going a bit slow, but this certainly livened it up. I wanna see more giants.

I'm up to date with the books so far as well, and while I can see the obvious divergences from their storyline, I think they will both come back together in the end. Three dragons, three dragon riders, and all the Valyrian swords on the wall, chopping up white walkers. Daenerys on one dragon, and my theory is Jon Snow is going to turn out to be yet another of Robert Baratheon's bastards from a Targaryen mother, possibly conceived in the aftermath of his coup. Ned wouldn't reveal who his mother was because it would also reveal who his father is, and put him in danger. He could even be Daenerys's half brother.

Who will be on the third dragon rider though? It has to be someone with Targaryen blood to ride a dragon, IIRC.

So they've got some pretty good fucking archers right? As in, they can shoot arrows through a fist sized gap at 50 yards.

They've got only so much Dragonglass, right? As in a finite amount?

So why didn't they just make lots of little dragonglass bodkins?

Capow. No more White Walkers?

Fucking plot holes.

If they come across any more dragonglass I'm sure they will. The little forest people or whatever probably have some hoarded away somewhere. Maybe once they weave Bran back into the story something like that will happen. There's probably more dragonglass than valyrian steel around in one form or another. That or they'll start forging it again. I remember something about maesters forging a valyrian steel link in their chains. Can't remember if it was Leuen or whomever talking about it.

Eh, Daenarys and Dragons invade Westeros, "break the wheel, blah, blah", Sansa becomes pregnant because shock horror, "blah blah", Bran becomes White Walker king and can walk again because "blah blah", heads south, kills Sansa because horror "blah blah", fights dragons, loses army, stalemate ensues, heads north, because in the grim darkness of westeros there is only your favourite characters dying, Dani forgives Jorah, he forgets, bangs her, she turns to grey scale ftb.
