Whenever I read Euron Greyjoy in the books I immediately picture Tim Curry from 1996 when he played Long John Silver in Muppet Treasure Island with blue lips, an eye patch on the left eye, wearing Valyrian steel armor. Tim Curry would have made a great and accurate Euron, if only he hadn't suffered a stroke in 2012.

Did the Freys deserve it? Yes. the North men that died at the twins did nothing wrong, that was King Rob, and they were still slaughtered, so yeah they deserved it.

I disagree with two points: Arya did not kill innocent Frey. If any of them had felt remorse, or had not been involved in the blood wedding, they would not had drunk to the toast and hence lived. Only the guilty ones drunk the wine.
And: the song of ice and fire is solely about Jon Snow. It was always just about him. I reckon he will be the only one left to sit on the throne, if he ever choses to do so.

When you questioned wether the other Frey’s being killed was right I would point out that they were all slaughtering stark men at the wedding

A little kid gets to watch her dads head get cut off by a psycho. Majority of remaining family brutally murdered like pigs at a wedding. Meets a master badass assassin also along the way and gets an invite. Then gets to go on a long hike with a brutal warrior that kills by the dozens. Joins said assassin club... my god what went wrong with little Arya guys lol

Great commentary brother. Regarding Stark family, killers as others, never understood the 'saints' part to them people crave for. Ned got on my shit list in ep 1 killing the night watch dude.

Correct me if am wrong but what about the freys that shot arrows and bolts on rob what about the freys that killed grey wind and stitched grey wind onto rob and the freys that killed half of the army they even cheered when walder frey said that they helped him kill the starks
she showed mercy to his daughters
And even if they didnt do it they deserved it and being a frey is a sin alone thank god house frey is dead
Am disappointed

I mean... it actually never specifies that the valonqar is Cersei’s valonqar... I theorise that the valonqar actually refers to Arya, who has been wanting to do so for a long time

The Frey's got what they deserved. Remember that all Robb's men were killed outside by the Freys.

Just before Euron throws him over the rope bridge, his brother says, "I heard you had all their tongues cut out."
To which Euron replies, "I needed silence." And, "I am the storm, brother."
So, that's a little preview of things to come, that also matches up with the book version of Euron.

4:42 I disagree because Jon also learned how to be a leader from many people. His uncle benjen, Ned, Mormont, and he even learned a few things from Tyrion so jon is a much better leader than Sansa.

Does anyone else think it interesting that a lot, if not most, of the main female characters seem to be corrupted when they gain power. Even Arya became a darker character after gaining the power to fight under the training of the faceless. I only mean the characters who started off as generally good and weren't shown to be a bitch right off the bat from season 1.

Watching this makes me think about how much potential season 7 had. I think the first 3 or so episodes were decent but then it all turned into a bunch of wishy-washy fan service nonsense.

Of course those Freys were guilty... for 2 reasons:
1. That room was full of Freys and so was the outside, that were slaughtering the Starks, which undoubtedly were the men in that room Arya poisoned...
And 2. They're in the same army and family fighting the same war, and on an extra note, they ALL did cheer when Walder mentioned the Starks slaughter at the Red Wedding...
So these facts alone are indisputable and irrefutable... not withstanding many others unsaid...
Great vid anyways bro, as always... sorry I'm so late lol

". . . This knife on this page about Valerian weapons looks just like the Cat's Paw's blade Littlefinger used to blame Tyrion, the same knife that Arya wears on this magazine cover. It's not clear what the point of all this will be, but it sure looks like this particular dagger is important . . ." 🙄 🙄 😝

This season managed to turn Arya from one of my favourite characters into one of my least favourite :( I couldn't agree more with you about Arya gleefully killing lots of people some of whom are probably innocent and were not on her hit list; or, two wrongs don't make a right. Killing Walder and his two sons at the end of last season was enough vengeance, this was just overkill, not to mention implausible. Either way she's now a villain. Then she very weirdly antagonises Sansa later in the season and somehow gets away with this and gets to kill Littlefinger who wasn't being nearly as villainous as she was in this season. She's due some serious bad karma.

We're all the freys guilty and deserving of death? Maybe you should have listened to arya/walder freys speech? Probably would have answered your question.

If someone else has pointed this out, I apologize. Dragonstone is abandoned because Stannis took everyone north to the Wall. It is not much of a prize as it is rocky and unsuitable for farming.
