Girl power was all over the place in last night's Game of Thrones episode called The Book of the Stranger. So here are my assorted musings.

1) Jon and Sansa! Two Starks in the same room. Getting this family back together again has got to be crucial to whatever end game that this series has in mind. And it was wonderful to see after all the horrible things that both of them have suffered. I also loved that Sansa took charge and pushed Jon to go after Winterfell and Ramsay Bolton (I never thought someone could be worse than Joffrey but Ramsay really takes the cake). I love that Sansa is humble now and realizes how horrible the world really is and that she needs to fight for the good that's left in it. I was also really shocked that they killed off Osha. I think she deserved better, but at least she wasn't made to suffer by being flayed alive.

2) Tormund and Brienne needs to happen. I know she has this thing for Jaime Lannister (do we call it respect?) and Jaime seems to be in love (just a little bit) with Brienne. I like the politely disgusted look she gave Tormund; I sensed pure chemistry.

3) The High Sparrow really needs to die. I'm so tired of his smug expression, his platitudes about his religion, and his general terribleness when it comes to the Tyrells. However, I of course don't trust Cersei's plan. I think she's leading the Tyrell's into a trap in order to get rid of them all. Not sure how that will work out, but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets all the Tyrells snuffed out in short order. Another great house bites the dust.

4) Dany killing off all the Khals was pretty awesome. I wasn't expecting her to burn the temple of the Dosh Khaleen to the ground with everyone trapped in it (including herself). The show has not shied away from examples of her being fireproof. I like it, and I like the fact that she knows how to use it to her advantage. And now she has a khalasar to add to her army of unsullied. I wonder how she's going to view the 7-year agreement that Tyrion worked out with the slave masters?

Anyway, those are my assorted musings. What are yours?
