The Child of the Forest was seriously creepy. Like, I watch scary movies all the time, but I actually jumped when they first cut to the shot of the COTF. They are definitely giving off an inhuman vibe. I feel like the shape of her skull kind of reminded me of the Night's King.
It was confusingly satisfying watching tonight's episode. We had a scene like Balon's death that should have happened three years ago. So on the one hand it was like 'finally!' but on the other hand they revealed Euron's participation. So it was old information undercut by new intel at the same time.
I'm actually thoroughly disappointed by Roose Bolton's death. In such a brutal show I find myself strangely compelled by villains like Roose Bolton, and in a time where characters like Joffrey and Tywin are sorely missing, I'm sad to see Roose go. He brought a strange sense of wisdom and discipline to an evil lifestyle, whereas Ramsay is a much more chaotic villain. I wish that the character who killed Robb Stark went out in a more grandiose fashion, but it will probably be poetic to see the bastards of Stark and Bolton fight.
