That's just it, the Many-Faced God isn't the god of assassins, he's the god of death. (And what do we say to the god of death?) He is apparently very important in the religion as it seems one does not reach the afterlife but by the ministrations of his chosen.  If he directs them to bring a person to him early, who are mortals to deny the him his due?

I don't watch the series or read the books, but it's interesting to note that

bran is the Welsh word for 'raven'.

I kind of doubt that this is a coincidence.

I didn't know that! That's awesome, and agreed: that cannot be a coincidence!

On that note, what if this was "deaths" plan for her alll along?

Bravos was founded by slaves, all freed from the first slave who was taught to give the gift to the Masters.

Considering Bravos is one of the biggest cities, the Masters of the other cities can't really do shit about it.

True, but Braavos is a normal, civilized society at this point. Wouldn't a functional society reject a religion that is so disruptive? The Faceless Men kill all kinds of people, even in Braavos...

Not when it was founded by it. The faceless kill those who pay but I never saw it was countless people. They are basically a hospice with some assassins.

That episode though!!

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
There's a lot of speculation that Jaqen disguised himself as Arya to see if the Waif would obey his order to mercifully kill Arya. This is all based on the way Arya was walking (hands behind her back, like Jaqen) and the absence of her "Needle" (which she should obviously carry around at all times). Here's an article with some amazing theories about Arya, Jaqen, and the Waif, but I still personally like the "Jaqen is Arya" idea best.

Got to admit i'm not... really happy with the episode as a whole. From
Battle 'tactics'
Sansa sending her brother, the wildlings, and what few houses were loyal still into a slaughter house
to not even giving Wun Wun a damn weapon. he was golfing with Wights in hardhome using a log. Couldn't even chop down a tree to give him a big fuckin club or just gather some big rocks he could lob?

The action was decent enough, and the cinematography wonderful though.

You are in the minority, at least when compared to people discussing this at the Got and Asioaf subreddits.

Most of my issues lay with the Sansa stuff and well - c'mon. Couldn't they at least use the Giant like it was a giant? I don't think the bolton shield wall coulda been an issue if Wun Wun was going clubbing.

Probably the best episode of the season, though. It was a good ep with issues I take up with it.

I'm rather interested in how he'll die in the books now. Since certain characters were not supposed to be in that battlefield.

A pretty epic episode, I thought.  Here's my only complaint:

Jon couldn't have waited until the knights of the Vale got there to begin the attack?  Did Sansa even know they were coming?

Sansa seemed to know or at least guess they were coming given that she had written the letter to LF. She didn't tell Jon. At all.

Jon knew. He was talking about outflanking in the council and Davos made the point that they had to lure in the Boltons. Jon just mucked up the plan when he fell for Ramsey's gambit with Rickon, broke ranks, and his army followed.

Just like Sansa said.

They were talking about outflanking because they didn't want to get flanked by Bolton cavalry. Sansa deliberately withheld information about the vale knights to Jon. And/or he had no scouts which could have detected a huge cavalry regiment hours away from them. I'm 100% positive Sansa told Jon nothing about the vale knights

Does this mean Baelish is in good terms with the Freys? How else did he manage to bring that army into the battlefield?
