And at the same time Stannis is coming that way as well.  It would be pretty cool if Littlefinger has already been in touch with Stannis at the wall, and it's Stannis that helps the overthrow of Winterfell.  At that point, Jon has to help somehow, meaning you have the Nightswatch, the wildings, Winterfell, Starks, all of Littlefingers holdings, all ready to start making their way to King's Landing.

 

...

 

 

Why would he have the support of the Nightswatch and the wildlings?  I thought Jon made it pretty clear he was staying at the wall and isn't going to interfere with politics. 

 

If I had to bet money, Jon isn't staying at the wall and he will also be able to get the wildings somehow on his side.  It makes too much sense.  And part of that is the sense that there is an ultimate battle that is world changing.  It isn't so much just the small g game of thrones, but the ultimate end for the world.  To me, that would include somehow a destruction of the wall and the acceptance that the people that live on the other side are just as much citizens of the west.  I could be compeltely off base on that though but there is where I am coming from mostly with my ideas on how the long story is shaping up.

Someone approve of this plan (I have 6 dinner credits).  Or tell me if I should drop 2 (probably Liberty Tree and Akeshus) and just go 2 credit on Cinderella's table.

 

Lunch:

Whatever 5 times + 1 time @ Be Our Guest

 

Dinners:
1900 Park Fare

Ohana

Akershus

Liberty Tree Tavern

Mama Melrose Ristorante

La Hacienda de San Angel (during Illuminations)

1900 is a must do if you haven't.  So keep that.  The kids should love it.

 

O'hana - shouldn't even be on a list where the idea of a potential drop is being bandied about.  

 

Akershus for dinner - we are doing that for the first time this trip - the breakfast is awesome.  The dinner we are doing for the princesses more than the food and frankly we might change it to a more enjoyable meal for us, so I would have no problem with you droping that.

 

I love Liberty Tree even now without characters.  Just solid American food.  But because it is that, it is also nothing really special.  If you are going to drop 2 to make room for Cinderella than I would have no problem with you dropping LT and Aker.  They are easily replaceable or beatable.

 

Mama Melrose is ok but it's not one of my favorites.  I need really really good italian food to be impressed and while it's good it's not an italian meal that knocks me off my feet.  If you are an italian food nerd like me you could also drop this one and keep one of the others.

 

San Angel is a keeper.  Don't lose that.

 

So yeah if you have to move something for Cinderalla you have 3 to choose from and you won't really suffer that much for it.

I thought it was a phenominal episode.  Brien was awesome, Arya's story just continues to be more and more compelling, Sansa is starting to become a much more interesting character and if there is intrigue with her back in the North so much the better, Jon Snow is awesome and that entire scene was perfect in every way, Stannis' guy trying to get him to see the oath a different way was well done as well, Bolton and Littlefinger were good in their scene together and Dinklage really just continues to be one of the best characters on TV.  Him and Varys are really good together - Varys being a very underrated character.

 

And Cersei and the new queen were great.  Really well done there as well.  Just overall good in just about every sense was this episode.

 

And I join the chorus of just what the heck is Littlefinger doing.  Although I like the idea of him pulling off his own red wedding as retribution.  There is a poetry to that.

Quality and pace are two different things. This series is always top quality in production, acting, directing etc. I think some are crying because of the pace. They have been spoiled with jaw droppers every other episode and the season so far has been more moving the story along than shocking us. I for one enjoy the story telling and the quality. I have faith that the 'pace' will be made up for later on.

 

Yea, I mean, the key on Littlefinger I think is there really is only two things he has ever cared about and the rest could burn: Catelyn Stark and power. Has he transfered that care from Cat to Sansa or is she just a pawn like everyone else in his world? He has to want revenge himself for Cat being killed by Bolton/Frey, no?And If he has transfered that care to Sansa, then what is his end game? Or, is he really all just about power? I mean, he put in motion this entire series really. Some of it not in the best interest of Cat (or maybe it was in the best interest of trying to obtain Cat?)

 

If HBO is keeping with GRRM's rough parallel of the War of the Roses, this arranged marriage that Littlefinger set up is going to backfire on him personally big time.  But since they are starting to go off book now they could take the character in an incredibly different way.  And the Littlefinger Red Wedding has a lot of promise.  You could play around with the idea and also include Brein being there as well somehow.  If once the smoke settles Sansa has Brein by her side, the Bolton's are decimated, Winterfell is under the control of Sansa and Littlefinger manages to survive, he has whatever allegience Sansa allows him in the north not to mention all of his lands as well, and the place he just took is loyal to the Starks regardless of him, so they could put together a really huge force.

 

And at the same time Stannis is coming that way as well.  It would be pretty cool if Littlefinger has already been in touch with Stannis at the wall, and it's Stannis that helps the overthrow of Winterfell.  At that point, Jon has to help somehow, meaning you have the Nightswatch, the wildings, Winterfell, Starks, all of Littlefingers holdings, all ready to start making their way to King's Landing.

 

And then there is dragon lady and Tyrion.  Lot's of ways they can pull this all together.
