By the invisible one you mean the one without a face?

I thought there was a lot of action in that scene.

I binged watched the first six seasons over the course of about a week last month. I have never seen it before.

Arya Stark and Lyanna Mormont are going to steal the show lol. Love the attitudes.

Only thing that surprised me was jorah. I wonder if his greyscale is under control. He's obviously locked up because they want to keep him separated from people.

It's crazy, right? Read the books, too. There is so much story that this series hasn't been able to get to.

I don't mind the lack of 'action' when they touch on so many stories.

Dany/Tyrion
Jon/Sansa/Littlefinger
Sam/Gilly
Cersei/Jaime
Arya/Freys
Hound/Lord of Light fanatics
Bran/Three Eyed Raven

They really touched on everything but Sand Snakes and Gendry. Can't have giant battles without leaving out important story lines and for an opening episodes, I feel they shouldn't leave the audience saying "What about _____, what are they up to?"

In the books, Jon Snow turns out to actually be the Mother of Dragons' nephew; the son of her brother older than Viserys, who was already dead in the back story; eldest child of the mad King, is what I'm hearing in the media from viewers of the series who have also read the books...is that the case?

Well, often you have a pretty bad attitude about stuff.

I've watched maybe about 10 mins of this show total.

several years ago they were showing it in a bar I was at. there was a scene where some teenage brat (I guess he was a prince or something) was sodomizing two women with a spear, and another scene where a bunch of prisoners were being gratuitously tortured to death in bizarre ways. at first I thought to myself... this show is popular... A LOT of people enjoy watching depraved conduct like this... then I was horrified and realized humanity was probably doomed.

I told this to one of my good friends standing nearby at the time, and he pulled out a pad of paper that said "people to invite to my Game of Thrones Watch Party" and crossed my name off the list.
