Sexualisation: Seeing an elementary school raise up a LGBT flag, and then being told by online media sites that a child drag queen on estrogen injections, and dancing on tables at gay bars is fierce and powerful, you have to allow people certain degrees of anger without lashing out with the Nazi label and banning them. Everything draped in the LGBT isn’t honest and pure. Like with anything, you have to prune it back into the realms decency. Learn to say “This is going to far, this is wrong, but these core positions are good. I can differentiate these, and will even ally with you in certain areas while condemning you in others. Articulate your position, so I can articulate mine. We may have the same beliefs.”
Oh no a child drag queen! The horror! Unpure!
Straight people certainly don't do anything similar with their kids! And then turn it into television shows to make money off them!

As i watched this episode I figured it would be divisive since it didn't "move the plot", and that seems maybe true skimming the thread, but goddamn I fucking loved it. To me it was 8 years of character and relationship development payoff and not in a fan-servicy way. I agree with @pavlovsbell that the dialogue wasn't as tight as say season 2 Blackwater or other earlier seasons (it's hard to compete with GRRM) but I think they did all these character moments justice - Jaime & Brienne being at the forefront, but other highlights were Sansa-Dany, Jaime-Bran and Jaime-Tyrion, Arya everything (take your own damn pants off Gendry!), Pod everything (that nod to Brienne before she was knighted!), Sam and Jorah, Tormund'sTMI giant's milk monologue, Gilly & Davos and the spunky young girl (did you catch the notes of "I know I know"?)... I could go on. I'm really impressed that the did this sort of episode when there were only six this season.
I had mixed feelings as I watched this episode - but I kindof started to admire them for just leaning into the horrific and senseless burning of KL ... it kept going and going and going. Not happy about Dany's arc this season but considering this episode by itself I'm not as down on it as others are.
Anyway I'm not going to hate on J&A for being pissed during an insta-cast. They're processing their feelings in real time, and this show has been a huge part of their lives and livelihood for a long time - it's ok to be upset if they don't think it's doing a good job of concluding the series. I don't necessarily agree, but folks should calm down a notch in the forums. I'm looking forward to the full cast once they've had a couple days to process and go through feedback.
If you're looking for some more lighthearted recapping - which I wanted this morning - definitely listen to Boars Gore & Swords - they always have been good at leaning into the absurdity which is nice for this episode. Also Bill Simmons has been recapping the episodes at the end of his Sunday night pods this season, and it's typically amusing in a stupid sort of way - he was very enthusiastic that they finally "unleashed the dragon" lol.

I was very surprised and disappointed that it didn't begin during this episode.Arya's diagram... I thought it looked like a harpoon, but we haven't seen gunpowder in this universe, so not sure if that's possible. I guess it could use a spring.
I'm going with a dragonglass tipped bow staff - would compliment her faceless men training. And then it can break into smaller weapons for close quarters trickery.
