Is it rumored or confirmed they'll finish at season 9?

Not as good as the first trailer imo.

You're right. I thought I saw a beard/goatee and thought it was a different/new character.

I think there are only two more season (7, meaning this one, and 8), both shorter (fewer episodes, although a few are supposedly over 70 minutes long).

I loved this one, more then the first.

Incredibly excited for this season. These trailers have really left the impression that things are going to go crazy this season, making it much more fast paced then the previous six.

The way they used the scenes of with the moutain standing off against the faith militant and the tyrell army in kings landing in season six trailer rubbed me the wrong way so im a bit skeptical about their trailers now, but im still excited as hell.

This is the Season I've been waiting for every since Season 2 in 2012 when I finished reading A Dance with Dragons. I've been waiting for the show to catch up ever since, and now its completely overtaken GRRM (who I think is probably going to pull a Robert Jordan and pass away before he finishes his Magnum Opus).

For the first time in 5 years I actually don't have a clue* what the overarching plot of the Season is going to be because theres no book out for me to have read and I'm fething excited.

*well, I kinda do if the Season 7 plot leak is accurate but that remains to be seen. Couldn't help myself.

I think there is a reasonable chance of that happening.

One of the prevalent themes of ASOIAF is subverting tropes (no white knight will come and rescue Sansa at the last second, Ned doesn't save everyone, and so one) - so the idea that the White Walkers totally win and that's how it ends is, I think, wholly plausible.

Na, it'll end with the White Walkers kicking everyone's collective arses and then Azor Ahai will rally the survivors and make peace with the White Walkers returning Westeros to the prior status quo. (White Walkers rule the lands north of the Wall, Men rule the lands south of the wall and pledge not to ally themselves with the forces of Fire again i.e. Dragons and R'hllor the Lord of Light).

Well, that was a pretty solid first episode and quite the cold open.

Spoiler:
and that has to be quite a record for the pre-theme body count


Edit:

Also...

Spoiler:
Will we see Hodor as a wight, because I don't think I can handle that...

Since, by this point, ASOIAF and GoT are creating tropes, wouldn't the ultimate subversion be that the good guys win at the end possible?

Spoiler:
Interesting episode. Surprisingly easy paced, given there's just six more to come. But, it did spend time bringing us and the more casual viewer up to date what what the various factions are up to, and where they are geographically.

I'm hoping the episode is the calm before the storm, because I fear a second 'previously on' episode would waste too much time.


Spoiler:
And of course, Arya Stark, part of the 'All Westeros Starting' champion team of her and The Hound has struck out on her own, confidently cinching the coveted title of 'Best Murder Hobo'


Can we have episode two now please?

DO NOT READ THE BBC NEWS ARTICLE ON THE CRITICAL REACTION.

They've included some pretty big spoilers, and have done so without warning.

As I've already seen it, no harm done my end. But thought I'd flag it for other Nerds.

Maybe.

The scene did cut awfully fast after her "joke" so maybe she went all Murder Hobo on them off camera.
It would certainly shut up the people all over the internet complaining about Ed Sheerans' cameo.

Pretty good episode with great final line - Crixus would be happy

Likes:

Spoiler:
pre credits scene - nicely done and sets the scene
The Iron Born leader - chaneeling Ragnar from Vikings a bit - but good fun - "I have two hands" was good.
Jon being told to wise up by Sansa who is great
Breene being courted by the Wildling guy - needs more of that
Dany and co have arrived!


not like

Spoiler:
Nothing really - fat annoying Sam bit was even ok, maybe he will die soon - can but hope

Regarding Sam:

Spoiler:
im in the camp of people who think he'll not only make it to the end, but that he is also the person who is telling the story. The Library has the machine that opens every episode, and the whole "we are the historians, without us humanity would be nothing better than dogs" dialogue just reinforces that

May well be right - but I can hope

So do we think
Spoiler:
now that we have established the Lanister soldiers as basically nice guys, Arya is going to slaughter them for thier faces - she can only impersonate the dead right?
