The Hodor thing seemed a bit lifted from A Prayer for Owen Meany. The pre-cog "training for one thing" but the viewer or reader is unaware and then we slap our foreheads going "ah, that's why!" That was also used in that UFO movie Signs.
I would have liked to see one epic battle at this point. We've got like 3 in the wings. The Scouring of the High Sparrow, Battle of the Fields of Winterfell, and the War of the Last Slave Alliance.
