Now that I think about it, the whole episode was about empowering women in a way this show has maybe never done before. So that's good.

Considering that Gendry was the bastard son of Barathian, doesn't that mean if Arya and he had a child, it would be another claim to the throne?

If the baby had a claim to the throne, Gendry would have a better one. But bastards usually don't get recognized.

Robert's claim was shaky at best, anyway. All he had was his hammer and being a Targaryen cousin, but it really was the hammer that got him the throne. He was keenly aware of that, considering his efforts to assassinate Viserys and Dany.

The first episode of the season was fine but even though we didn't get to any fighting this episode, this was much better. In the wake of the impending judgment day our characters face, once Jamie is allowed to fight the episode becomes much more intimate in a very good way. The scenes around the hearth are the heart (no word play intended or accomplished) are the best, from Tormund's very silly Miller's Tale toned origin story to Podrick singing to Brienne becoming a knight.

It occurs to me now that while much of the series seems to question, doubt and be skeptical of the myths and stories that people make for themselves as papering over a much nastier reality, here we see the beauty and value of song, stories, memories, titles, with the latter giving us a sweet yet mythical moment where tradition is upended because "fuck tradition", in the face of an enemy that wants to erase it from existence. I'm less interested in the supernatural than what comes after but this episode did a fantastic job making me excited for that confrontation and seeing how it ties into the themes of the show.
