Surprised there isn't a thread for this yet. Im finding this season really fascinating - anyone else watching it?

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I usually wait for the whole thing to be available on netflix. Then I don't have to wait for the next season. Of course, Game of Thrones might take a decade... :mrgreen:

Yes I'm watching it, sort of enjoying it so far, haven't seen this week's yet. Think there are some boring storylines (Arya, Daenerys as always) and some good ones, pretty much par for the course. Hasn't Bran grown though!

I've read there's supposed to be another two seasons of the series.

This week was an interesting one, glad to see that
and I loved the bit when Jaime rode his horse up the steps, sigh.

That was quite an episode this week, love the title. Thought the dragon scene was really well done, and nice to see

So what did everyone think of the last episode? Seemed to be setting things up for the next series, I thought it dragged a bit but there were a few surprises.
