    Well if the first episode is any indication of quality Iím a little concerned. It was extremely slow for a show coming to an ultimate end. Very little new info, horrible stupid writing (keep your Queen warm... I mean COME ON!!), and just not a coherent sense of story.

    I didn't mind the slowness of the episode, I was internally giddy just to have the show back.

    So ... would you guys be interested in a friendly little wager about the outcome of the show? Deaths, killers, fates, winner(s), events?

    First episodes are typically a little slow, they're getting all the pieces aligned for the madness to come.

    I was worried that, after such a lengthy hiatus, I might feel lost, but I didn't. The episode did a good job of telling us all where the major players are and what's at stake.

    Yeah, I agree. I thought it was a good return. They did have a few "WTF" moments to tie up and such. Is this going to be another 6-8 episode season? If so, on the face of it, it would seem they have a lot to wrap up in a short time.

    It was great to have the show back though that's for sure!!!!

    Really? WOW All those seasons of soap opera bullshit and they wrap it up that quick? Just when the good stuff starts going down. This could end up being very disconcerting to say the least. Lotta folks to fry in 5 episodes!!! lol lol

    As long as I'm at it, any status update regarding the books? Does he plan on finishing them or will HBO be doing that for him?

    I gotta say though, HBO sure knows how to film a sword and sorcery battle.

    There's been nothing but radio silence from Martin regarding the release of the next 2 books. Honestly at this point its fair to wonder if he's ever going to release them. Maybe book 6 as he's presumably already written a portion of it, but all bets are off when it comes to 7.

    Yes, people, the remaining 5 episodes are going to consist of everyone just praying, making weapons and plotting. There will be no action, sorry.

    Honestly, I thought the episode was perfect for what it needed to be. The show has been off for almost two years. Like Fernando said, you have to reset the pieces on the game board. Refresh everyone's memory about the main players, where they are and what they are up to. I thought they did an amazing job at that.

    I know people are anxious because we don't have a lot of time left, but I think if they just jumped into things in the first episode it would have felt equally out of place for me.

    I felt it was spot on with all the reunions and everyone coming together for the main cause or plot. Surprised we got a couple quick reveals so early. I enjoyed it thoroughly, just disappointed we couldn't get a bunch of dialogue to extend past 6 episodes so I truly understand people feeling there isn't much time left. I am hoping it doesn't rush through to the end. We have this super villain coming and I would hate it to end with a simple swing of the blade. We will see.

    Only 5 episodes left to tie everything together, that doesn't seem like enough

    5 episodes is plenty. Martin often employs this storytelling device:



    IMO, Martin is simply not interested in finishing the books. He can't even say he's too busy; he published a prequel and I believe two novellas since the last book .

    Maybe he lost his mojo when the show surpassed the books.

    Keep in mind that the total length of the last few episodes essentially amount to 1 long movie. So we're getting an extended cut LOTR movie to tie everything up. Plenty of time.

    Yep, he even chatted with SK a few years back on how to write faster. If you are not writing then just picking up a pen would be a start.

    I feel that the one thing that will get short changed is the exploration of the different religions in Westeros. One of the most intriguing aspects of the show to me was the way these different religions and ideologies collided across the globe and how some of them had very real, practical applications in the living world - the flaming swords, the blood magic, the resurrections etc.,

    I was hoping the show would delve a little more into why all of these religions seemingly had an ethereal foothold in the living world and how that conflicted (or united) with the spiritual threads running throughout the show. Its no coincidence that all of the remaining Stark children have been aligned with different deities - Bran with the Greenseer, Jon with the Red God, Sansa with the Seven, Arya with the Faceless God etc.,

    Would like to see something more on that but sadly I feel it end up getting the short end of the pointy stick.
