How are Jorah and Tyrion supposed to go from sailing along a narrow canal flanked by ancient buildings to a wide open beach, with no boat in sight. in a short enough period of time to keep Tyrion alive like that?
Otherwise, I thought it was a slow moving episode, but still entertaining. Got to see a guy get bbq’d and eaten by a pair of dragons, Stannis starting to march on Winterfell, Jon Snow going all in with the wildlings, etc.
Isn’t it taking the white walkers a really long time to get there? They were marching at a good pace several seasons ago. Everyone from the North seems to be aware that winter is coming - and that a lot of bad stuff will come along with it. Besides the white walkers, which hadn’t been seen in hundreds of years until recently, what else? What happened during the previous few winters that was so bad? Even if seasons are years long, most adults must have experienced at least a few winters in their lives.
This winter is expected to be particularly long and harsh because the summer has been exceptionally long too. The bad thing to come is mostly famine, especially with food reserves depleted and the countryside devastated during the war (they discussed that in some early episode in the small council).
