Hopefully Ramsey has an equally gruesome death coming his way soon.

I keep waiting for Arya to hit a story arc where she's in more then 2 scenes per century.
I don't like the direction her story is going, is starting to become a bit like watching lost, or one of these dramas where it's all expectation and no pay off.
She's been in the "hiding/training/fleeing" part of her arc for a billion years and we've been given very little "skillful ass kicking" bits, except for the one recent measly assassination scene, or the odd stabbing a fat kid, or a man already lying of the floor, followed immediately by more running/fleeing/tutoring;

I don't know if in the books there was loads more shit happening, but the person who started out as my favorite character, is being strangled into disinterest because of her lack of narrative interest, and screen time, and the fact that she seems to just be a helpless prick to the story that's happening around her despite the fact she's spent her entire 'life' since history began being trained, tutored and mentored by the most dangerous and skilled people in Westeros. Her utter lack of ass-kicking is starting to smell of 'stalling'.
We get it; she's a helpless little girl, but considering this is a world where magic is real and there are dragons and stuff, and Ice zombie things, if by the end of this "yet another being-trained" story, she isn't able to skillfully and satisfyingly behead the Zombie-Mountain-guy with a sharply delivered fart and breathe fucking thunder and get 6 full length episodes and a movie dedicate to her utter destruction of Westeros if-she-so-chooses, then I'm going to send a pipe bomb to HBO and a bomb pipe to da dope writin da ting .

@ Greenmanpp, totally agree. The books and the TV show are guilty of over-egging Arya's storyline. Would've been far better for her to disappear for a few years / seasons / books when she got on that boat to Braavos. And then return in a flourish as a bad ass assassin. In this case, we really didn't need to know how the Braavosi Sausage is made.

I am so happy I never got hooked on that one (I do not have an addictive personality where sugar is not involved).
I saw the recap thing but I am glad I called it pass and will keep passing on it: it seems to well produced and too interesting: it could easily cannibalize a few months of binge watching, at a time when I try to ween myself from TV.

Warning Spoiler, I stayed up after a gig last night and caught the after midnight Sundaynight/Mondaymorning showing, so don't read this until after you watch it this evening.

Finally, some progress with Ayra!! it's still "training" but it seems like her first actual 'victory' in about 3 seasons.
Agree with Thomas' post, there is actually no need to see her story until something changes, the viewer from this point on, unless otherwise shown, will assume Ayra is "continuing to become more ass-kick-y" and it'll probably be a more effective impact wise to just leave her until she does something that effects the rest of the story, i.e., kills someone on her list, or something to that effect.

Interesting twist with John's claiming his "watch has ended" It's a bit like when people claim their own life assurance having been clinically dead for a period.

Are they turning Tommin into a character of substance? he's starting to talk with the authority and tone of Geoffrey, (only without the crazy). I don't know what they're at in King's landing with so many elements. In normal times I'd say a big character cull is about to happen, but recently he's been throwing people off the scent: just when we're used to main characters suddenly dying, he suddenly takes his hand off the guillotine, and people start successfully escaping death every so often it's actually doing a good job of keeping even the most jaded consumer of media from guessing what's about to come only by taking in the shape of a narrative and where it "must" be headed.


In other words, it successfully does not feel like a constructed story and more like "a bunch of stuff that's happening" like it would in real life, only with more action, and magic... and dragons.
