If you'll go to the HBO Go/Now website and watch the extras for this episode, they actually talk specifically about that.

Nymeria has found her place as the leader of a large band of wild wolves. She isn't the kind of wolf to go live the domesticated life in Winterfell.

They compared it to the scene in Season One when Ned is trying to convince Arya to take her sewing/dancing/etc. lessons more seriously, so that she could become a proper lady someday. Arya's response to him was: "That isn't me".

I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Nymeria and the direwolves. I would give even odds they will show up later this season. The same also goes for the Second Sons.

We're a quarter of the way through the season and people are still talking in small rooms. Do something spectacular already!

I think budget constraints are why so far we've mostly seen the insides of rooms, and the only big battle has been at night.

Good episode, The Mother of Dragons had to get her nose bloodied a bit before unleashing hell.

I think next week is John Snow at DragonStone and the Unsullied sacking Casterly Rock with a Vengance.

They keep dropping all this history from the past and background of roberts rebellion. Makes me believe they are going to do the sequel series about that.

Prequels are on the table, or have been seriously discussed.

Perhaps Jon choking Littlefinger was foreshadowing an assassination attempt...

I agree regarding Nymeria and her pack. It's hard for me to see how that brief scene was worth the time and expense it took to create if that was to be their only appearance, and nothing major happened. I guess it could be argued the scene was necessary for her to remember the "that's not you," line from her father. At first I thought Arya was going to reverse course and head to King's Landing after all because who she is now is a vengeful assassin. However, the fact that Nymeria preferred to stay with her pack leads me to think Arya was realizing fully she too belongs with her pack, rather on a lonewolf mission.

I'm not as confident we'll see the Second Sons again, but it's possible Dany's losses will prompt her to call on them.

Yara and Theon left the Iron Islands with Euron's fleet. Someone says they were leaving with their best ships while they watched them sail away. Euron dismissed it by saying he'd build a new, larger fleet.


I found myself shaking my head a bit. Enron supposedly has 1000 ships, Yara/Asha also has a sizable fleet...that's a lot of wood, cloth and manpower. All of that from a couple craggy rocks, from the smallest kingdom in Westeros? Hiring mercenaries is entirely plausible (See Bron, Second Sons, Golden Company) however, all those other resources coming out of Pyke just seems a bit too fantastic.

On a related note, how are the Unsullied getting to Casterlyrock? If Yara's ships are destroyed due to Euron's engagement, how are they able to travel to the other side of Westeros?

Anyone notice the transition before that, from the scene where Grey Worm was utilizing what he could to please Missandei, to the image of a hand reaching into a dark gap to grab a book from the shelf at the Citadel?

There's definitely some cheeky editing this season... soup/puke/latrine with Sam from episode 1 set the stage.

They might not have used all the ships, only Yara's maybe (leaving all the ships from slavers bay for the Unsullied?).

I'm pretty sure that was the plan they outlined.

I wasn't sure about this either. On the emergency awesome youtube channel, Charlie said that they only took the Ironborn ships and not all of the ships. So Daenerys lost a huge chunk of her fleet, but not the entire fleet that she used to sail to Westeros.

Charlie brought up an old vision that Daenerys had that I completely forgot about from season two.

So now we don't know if Theon is a forever-broken man who pussed out when his moment of truth arrived, or if he simply made a tactical retreat and will try to get to Dany to get her to send forth her dragons to deal with Euron. GRRM has a real "soft spot in [his] heart for cripples, bastards and other broken things," so I expect some sort of redemption for Theon still.
