I was disappointed with the Arya conclusion particularly as the various theories did make some sense in that it was strange the way she was behaving and seemed to invite the attack and be entirely unprepared for it. I still thought there was more to it when Arya started running after that serious stomach injury as it seemed more likely she had somehow faked the stomach injury but it seems Arya was being very careless and healed impossibly fast from a fatal stabbing. The slight nod from Jaghen seemed to imply this was perhaps the outcome he had expected in that Arya was trained as a skilled assassin and the Waif had been killed, she didn't really seem to be a girl of no name as she lacked the emotional detachment expected of her. Even then though the way Arya has been it doesn't really feel like she's learnt anything or improved much after all the time spent in the house of black and white.
The Blackfish's demise seemed poorly written as well as I didn't find it believable that the army would surrender everything to Edmure purely because of his title, although rankings are strong there's plenty of back stabbing and loyalty changes. I could see it the other way round if Edmure had been in command and the Blackfish wanting in but why would they listen to someone who's been a prisoner of the Freys and Lannisters for quite some time over a proven military commander like the Blackfish? It was disappointing he chose to die as well as his skills are clearly needed for Jon Snow and Sansa, I thought he'd want the chance to get his revenge later.
On the plus side though, I thought the Hound's scenes were great even though on paper they sounded daft instead they were done well and the debating over who kills what was particularly amusing particularly when the gruff Hound mentioned he'd have killed all of them with the reply being he must be getting old then.
It's good to see Bronn back as well with his usual honest approach although something I was wondering was last week he complained he hadn't got his castle and lovely wife but I thought he had, Jaime had visited him when he needed him last. I can't quite remember what happened there though, was his wife annoying him? https://imgur.com/gallery/me4D1sT
That's probably a fair summary of Game of Thrones in general.
We finally got the long awaited 'I choose violence' scene which I thought was played extremely well as the faith militant sized up against the zombie mountain with a real feel of tension as to what was going to happen. It doesn't seem a surprise when your main opponent has such muscle by her side that trial by combat would be scrapped but the big question is what was the rumour? The suggestions so far seem to be wildfire and that Xersei wants to burn the whole place down which isn't hard to believe.
There's also the question of who Varys was visiting and certainly Littlefinger seems a good possibility there.
The next week looks like Jon Snow and Ramsay are going head to head although I'm hoping it doesn't get rushed as the Jon Snow/Sansa side has been building up rather nicely and I don't want it just to be over.
