So I take it that Arnold is Arnoldficial Intelligence?
Probably, the Knights of the Vale took a similarly convenient path. I look forward to reading about it in some future book.
Actually now that you mention it, it does seem pretty bogus how the Riders of Rohan got the drop on the Nazgul at the Battle of Pellenor Fields. Those idiots were actually flying around on giant lizards and they missed a massive army of horseman riding up to the battlefield?

I enjoyed this episode. In the moment, the fight scenes were pretty dramatic. Its possible that some of the battle might not stand up to more intense scrutiny, but that's fine.
I was sort of thinking that after the Arryns show up, Ramsay decides to retreat into Winterfell for a siege, but Umbers lock them out or Reeds show up to block the way, and Littlefinger steps out of the shadows smirking. I am sure the real writers could come up with something better.
Seems like if Marjorie got pregnant (which they foreshadowed last ep), she might have an incentive to kill Tommen. OTOH, if crazy Cersei burns up Tommen, Marjorie would probably claim she was pregnant. In fact, it would be pretty cool if Tommy boy survived getting burned up by the skin of his teeth, only to have his wife push him back into the flames.Seems like they have set up the Battle of the Bastards to be resolved by a last minute Ride of the Vale-horrim.

On the other hand, they have done what they needed to do and been fairly entertaining doing it. It looks like it will all pay off in the next few episodes.
Gotta say these Faceless Men are pretty over-hyped. By rep, they are the world's greatest assassins, capable of killing the best protected of monarchs. In practice, they are a couple of dipshits who can't manage to kill a low-rent actress or a teenage girl.
I am not quite sure I understand the scale of these White zombie guys. On the one hand it seems the show is hinting that they are an existential threat to humanity that will only be beaten by a combined army of the Nights Watch, the Unsullied, the Dothraki Horde, the Iron Born, and whatever Westerosi knights remain all aided by several giant fire-breathing dragons. On the other hand, last night their army was pretty much thwarted by 4 Keebler elves, a dog, and Lenny from...
