  1. D do you remember when Sansa saw Bran (in season seven) and she hugged him, he didnt hug her back, but he hugged Jon and Arya back when they hugged him. Did you see that or was I the only one that saw that?

  2. Good review! I really enjoyed this episode. The reunions were great, however, I'm finding Bran's lack of emotions quite annoying. Still not here for Jon and Dany's incestuous relationship. Now that Jon knows who he truly is, I'm hoping that will put an end to it. Can't wait to see the outcome of Jaime's visit to Winterfell. Although, I'm warming up to him a bit, he's done so many terrible things that I feel shouldn't go unpunished.

  3. The beheaded man (Astrolabe) I believe was from the cold open of the first episode when a White Walker beheads one of the Night Watch in front of the new recruit Night Watch.
