Usually I don't worry about "spoilers". But in this case, watching too many YouTube videos about season 7 has already spoiled a couple plot lines for me, including the opening revenge scene in S7E1. Shame on me......

But a great episode non-the-less. Having the show back for a few Sundays is like a visit from an old friend I have not seen in quite a while.......

There were a couple of giants beside Wun Wun when the wildings reached the wall and were trying to climb it (Episode 9, Season 4: Wildlings On The Wall). I believe they were killed during that battle if not when Stannis and his army went to save Jon.

There were also a number of white walker giants.

I think that Arya stated to the lannister soldiers about killing the Queen in order to assess the military support that the Lannister army has for Cerci, and the answer is "none".

I don't think it was that at all. My thought is the soldiers laughed because it sounds completely ludicrous that a single 'girl' would travel to Kings Landing to try and kill the queen. I'm willing to bet they wouldn't have been laughing if it was a troop of armed soldiers stating they were going to go kill the queen. She said it to feel them out, but I don't think it had anything to do with military support.

I guess the books can show this a bit more since the books describe what he is thinking. If I remember correctly he broke off his incestuous relationship with Cersei and was disgusted by her actions. There were some other things that happened as well, but it's been awhile since I read the book. I was hoping for the same in the TV show. But hey, the season is young and perhaps that will happen. Jamie killed the Mad King so maybe he will have a hand in killing the Mad Queen this season. Who knows......

Wun Wun died at Winterfell when Ramsay shot him in the eye with his arrow, so it couldn't have been him. The scene looked like it took place north of the wall. I saw two giants in the scene with the Night King....I presume there were more giants than Wun Wun and the giant who died in the attack on the wall when Mance Rayder led his army there.

How big would anyone here estimate the giants shown in the series to be? In the books they are described as 13-14 feet tall, but the ones on TV seem more like 20 footers. Fantastic job weaving them into the picture so realistically.

Thanks! His arm did look more burned, than scaly though. Maybe they are trying some weird medieval cure.
