I think I'm going to start rewatching the show since I have a few slow months ahead of me.

same here. Especially given the amount of time we have now until the last season....I may evaluate a realistic re-watch schedule that would lead me right into the start of the final season.

I want too to rewatch the series with the proper insight, but I have so much new stuff to watch that I consider unlikely to find some proper time to sit down through everything again. But it would be quite a rewarding experience to watch it to appreciate more the story and all the nuances, and be prepared for the shocking deahs (speaking of that, I don't think I want to watch the Red Wedding or Oberyn's death ever again. I watched on YouTube the fight between the Viper and the Mountain but I always stop before Gregor Clegane tackles him to the ground)

(Speaking of this now... I remember vividly in the battle there was a scene where Oberyn was grounded like that and simply rolled away quickly, couldn't he just do it again? yeah, I know, the surprise, he was caught off guard, but DAMN  :D )

Already in the thick of it myself, somewhere around S4E9, picking up a lot of the little things now that I'm not racing just to keep up with the myriad storylines.

This is why I want to rewatch it. I didn't get into GoT until season 4 was airing, I binged seasons 1,2, and 3 and I felt at the time so much was being thrown at me. Now that I'm really familiar with the show I want to go back.

Totally. I binged 1-6 in two months and I could barely keep names straight.

I binged the first 4 in a couple weeks. It was hard as hell keeping track of characters. Honestly, I don't think I even had a feel for who was who until around season 4. When I restarted the series after season 6, I damn near forgot who the hell Robb Stark was.  :facepalm:  :lol

Read an interesting article just now on something that now seems pretty likely.....that the Hound could have been reading the flames when he was young and told older bro the Mountain something he didn't like to hear about it and that's why the Mountain shoved his head into the fire?

And when he told him that he knew what was coming for him it was what the Hound told him all those years ago. The theory I read was that the 'what' is Arya....and that's what compelled the Hound to protect her all that time.

The part about Arya being the one to come for him is a thought I had too after the finale. I possibly mentioned it here - not sure. I think we were all thinking it would be a Clegane Bros showdown, but now I'm not so sure.

The only thing that goes against the notion of The Hound reading the flames at a younger age is that he seemed to be totally sceptical and dismissive of anything spiritual until very recently, when he was pretty much saved by the Brotherhood. Now he seems a bit more open to that sort of thing.

You got a link? I'd love to read that and pass it on to my kid.

This is amazing.
I wouldn't want somebody with 18 kids to mow my damn lawn, based on a longstanding bias I have against crazy fucks.

Here's one link to an article suggesting the Hound saw the Mountains Death in the flames as a kid and that's why the Mountain shoved his face in it. The original article I referenced was actually a video with words overlaying the video talking about the same thing then adding they suspected the Hound saw Arya killing him and that's why he was so protective of her. And for the life of me I can't find it again. I thought I saw it on Yahoo News but it isn't anywhere to be found.

So in my series re-watch, I just went through The Door episode again. First off, still fucking hurts. Secondly, how fucked up would it be if Hodor came with the army of the dead and they had to kill him again?

That's really the only death that made me tear up while watching it.  As a father, seeing the Red Wedding was awful and so was Stannis' decision about Shireen, but Hodor being torn apart while watching his younger self experience it in his mind was so incredibly sad.

So now that the sansa story played out, why exactly was brianne sent away again? She didn't do anything in kings landing, and now we know they were planning on offing little finger, instead of each other so i really don't get it.

Sansa sent her as her emissary to the big meeting in Kings Landing. She was likely to attend and report back, since Sansa is acting Lady of Winterfell and needed to stay and govern in Jon's absence, since "there must always be a Stark in Winterfell."  She also showed no interest in being near Cersei again after her captivity in earlier seasons. 

Also, by sending Brienne, you now have the ability to let her interact with The Hound and Jamie, providing two small reunions.  Brienne was able to pull Jamie aside for a second and urge him to get Cersei to listen to reason.  I'd like to think that seeing her again gave Jamie another little kick in the butt to leave Cersei behind.

They also made it clear to the viewer that Cersei saw that encounter.  I wonder if that puts her on Cersei's shit list.

Cersei orders The Mountain to kill her and The Hound stops him?

she probably still was under Littlefinger's manipulation at that point
