Bastard bowl? I don't think so

More Game of Thrones, under the cut.

It was, however, very, very satisfying, from the opening sequence onward. Except for a long stretch in the middle when I was really really worried that Tormund was going to die doing something brave. But instead he just ripped out a guy's throat with his teeth. Go Tormund! I don't want you to die before you can enjoy at least one night of bliss with Brienne.

But really, Jon and Ramsay were basically irrelevant to the larger action, which was all about the female characters: Dany taking control of the situation in Mereen, and freeing her people one more time. And then making a very good deal with Yara! Which did not actually rule out marriage at some later date. Forget the bastards, this episode was actually about women taking charge of things. Even Jon Snow knew that: he stopped killing Ramsay, and didn't argue when Sansa went to finish him off. In the most delightful way possible, really.

I found that very very satisfying. Much like Dany and Yara's decision to give up on men and just have a girls-only clique running things in Westeros. Presumably they will let Sansa join? After all, she managed to save the day for Jon and his army nicely, just like Dany did for her whole city.

I mean, I know that some other things happened this episode, like Rickon (poor Rickon, but he was barely a character in the show), and Davos figuring out what happened to Shireen, and someone will probably have to do something about Littlefinger, but right now I am just basking in the happiness. Also, presumably Ramsay's fate will make Littlefinger a little less sanguine about messing with Sansa too much.

I really, really loved that little smile on her face, as she listened to Ramsay getting eaten by his own dogs.

"That's no orc horn!" *Gandalf and the Riders of Rohan show up to save the..." Oh wait, wrong show...

Sansa: "How do we know you have Rickon? The last time we saw him, he was 5, and now he's in college it looks like?"

That snark aside, I loved this episode. I love the DanYara inevitable shipping, I love Davos + Tormund FOREVER. FOREVER! :) Happy Shitting! :)
Adrian called the whole LotR battle scene rip-off as soon as Ramsay's soldiers formed the ring. And then it was, wait, I hear a far-off horn!!! Neer saw that one coming.

I guess Rickon is the only character whose travels all over the north took as long in the show as in the books. So for him it's been like 10 years, which is why he's so big now. I don't know. Meanwhile everyone else is teleporting around, so they aren't aging as fast. (Like Theon and Yara. How did they get to Mereen so quickly? Who the fuck cares! I love how devoted the showrunners are to moving the goddamn plot along.)

I loved the episode too. Awesome! I have never subscribed to the whole Sansa Queen in the North thing, but now I am going to be disappointed when that doesn't happen.
