I'm assuming they brought a load of food with them since traditionally Westeros got food from Essos during winters.

For a premier there was just way too much nothing. Everything outside Arya and the Brotherhood felt like a boring, middle of the season type episode.

When you look at the map, dragonstone is a pretty big island, bigger than the iron isles.

Food would be a problem, but she's got highgarden on her side, all the food that went to kings landing is now going to dany would be my guess.

I'm thinking Euron is going to conveniently have anti-dragon weapons. Like whale hunting weapons modified to shoot down dragons.

Or something like that bigass ballista that was used by the Night's Watch against the giant in the battle of Castle Black.

Dragonstone is most certainly not bigger than the Iron Islands. Not even close. It's about 1/8 the size of Bear Island and it's 62 fighting men.

That represents a whopping 50 percent increase from last year’s premiere — despite the show airing in the summer for the first time when the number of households watching television is lower than in the spring (which is why broadcast networks run most of their original programming from September to May).

Last year the season 6 premiere averaged 10.7 million viewers including streaming (7.9 million viewers without).

Without Euron the Lannisters would get obliterated soon, they have four enemy armies in every compass direction, they had the whole scene emphasizing this. Expect this conflict to take up the whole season, from the way he was presented (compared to last season), Euron was very obviously here to stay.

Doesn't one of the trailers show a battle between dragons and ships? I have a feeling Euron will manage to take down one of the dragons and escape the battle with most of his fleet intact.

Euron's fleet was under construction by the time Theon and Yara fled to Danny, and was likely still being built when word first got out that Danny was coming to Westeros. So it's not unreasonable to think that he might have equipped his ships with some anti-dragon hardware.

You didn't like the Lord of Light and Glegane stuff? I really thought the Hound knew those people or he killed them. And I absolutely loved the Jon Snow taking the leader stuff and debating with Sansa in front of the crowd lol

I was reading the reddit thread and I'm quite surprised that so many people didn't make the connection that the corpses Sandor buried were the same father and daughter he robbed several seasons ago. It was not an accident the recap flashback showed that father and daughter Even Beric asked Sandor "you knew them?"

right on the money, I just saw it on the "making of" video, he stole money from them when traveling with arya, they starved to death because of him.

that was one really good moment of yesterday's episode, it shows how clegane has been growing a lot in these seasons

I really don't see the show having a repeat of the previous "whole fleet gets burned immediately" battle. Euron has some trick up his sleeve.

This is why I don't watch the recaps. It's basically a pre-episode spoiler section.

Recaps kinda suck and not all places even have them. HBO Nordic doesn't and I'd imagine the same goes for many streaming services.

I get that, but to be fair if I didn't see that in the recap then that whole bit would have gone completely over my head because Hound robbing them was a fairly quick thing that happened years ago now

And some rocket boosters apparently judging by how fast he sailed around almost the entirety of Westeros.

Insane amount money from one show, no wonder they want a spinoff.

And yes you gotta account for people who would sub to HBO no matter what, but also enjoy GoT, but I have no way of knowing that.

They're Lannister soldiers, there to keep the peace in the wake of the Frey massacre.

Line from the episode:

There's been some trouble with the Freys up at the Twins, so we're part of the army that's been sent to keep the peace.

They were probably comming from the twins. Jaime just led a lannister force to Riverton and they just had a party at the twins end of season 6.

Oh yeah what the above poster said.

During that scene I honestly thought it was a Cersie trap or something because of how easy it was for Dany to just walk in and go to the throne.

It boggles my mind how as nerdy a show as this could become such a pop culture sensation. I just don't get how this show became the juggernaut it is. The books weren't super big (as in not much more popular than the many other fantasy series), but for some reason it just clicked.

lol even in the recap at the start of the ep, they showed them for a reason. Now, I totally get it if they didn't show them at all, and I probably would've been confused as well until Hound actually talks about it.

The books were absolutely bigger than the average fantasy series. Go look at the fantasy bestseller list at the Wertzone and you'll see how little fantasy ( and all books not breakout worldwide megahits) sell.

OT

Euron is just going to end up this seasons Ramsay , isn't he ? He'll kill a Dragon because reasons and somehow use his instabuilt rocket fleet to zoom all over Westeros all the while it takes Arya all season to reach Kings Landing.
