with all of that said i do relate to DAn's sentiments. there's two (?) episodes left, and i have every intention of enjoying the hell out of them, even if they don't meet my expectations.

I ain't trying to stop anyone from enjoying anything but also no one should be surprised I didn't like last night's ep very much lol

And yet it was probably one of the better eps of this very short season I guess

Qyburn's exit had me lol'n

best part of everything is that Tyrion is now the tallest Lannister.

for discussion however I was entertained but while I enjoy gore and the battle scenes, the burning alive of innocent people after the first couple of shots was just overkill for me. So the mad queen shit happened, really was hoping for a misdirection.

Hound/Mountain could have been a highlight but that just felt really flat, until the fall portion. I did lose my shit laughing when Cersei just creeped on by before the fight sequence.

my favorite moment from the entire episode was the couple of minutes of Tyrion/Jaime, I really wish this relationship would have been featured more throughout the shows run.

I'm not book snobs like they are but I rarely disagree with their thoughts:

That said, the internet still has me in stitches this week

Well Qyburn dying was hilariously sudden so there's that.

Otherwise uhhhh Tyrion and Jamie saying bye to each other was the best, most earned moment of the episode.

Everything else happened. If I have to pinpoint something good, it was the tension felt when the two armies met on the ground. After that though eh.

Oh yeah Westorosi fuckboi Euron Margera is dead so that's good.

that is a great shot.

the writing has been even lazier. no real excuses for that, I mean you can do anything since now is all uncharted territory. yes they need to create reason for characters to be in certain places for the shock moments, or the few truly good interactions/moments. this is how so many great series go though, when you take on something as massive as this world, you have to know the endgame from the beginning. it is clear a lot of this is off the fly.

that said I am excited with anticipation for Sunday.

@kelly ...I really wanted to just enjoy the end ride (like I previously posted)...but that was by far the worst part of the story told, last night was just dreadful. I am one of those types who rarely complains but so much, but yeah this sucked.

I was cool with the ending for most of the characters in reference to Sansa, Arya and Jon. I liked that they all got something good out of everything at the end. However, dudes; BRAN? Come on. So if he can see everything, why did he not stop what happened at King's Landing? Was he responsible, by warging, or was he just that much of an asshole he let thousands of innocents die by saying nothing?

Why did Greyworm not kill Jon on first sight, or Tyrion? Were Sansa and the armies on the way? I assume it takes more than 3 weeks to get from Winterfell, but again who really knows. Why was Gendry not even mentioned for King? Why did no one else want independence aside from the North? When Greyworm tells Tyrion to not speak, but then goes on and delivers a speech. Sam introducing democracy, only to be laughed off. then they do it anyway.

Yay John gets to go with the free folk and I assume be the king/leader. I liked that. just not the way we got there.

I mean, I just wanted something better as a sendoff. nothing that had to be amazing, and even if Bran has to be the ruler; ok. just give me something more to show why he should be.

A good story, hell almost every character has a better story than him, memories withstanding.

sean, amber...go to it.

so Bran really started everything. He put Sam up to telling Jon...knowing the chain of events it would set into motion. like maybe if Tyrion and Jon never knew they would have been able to handle Dany differently and she may have approached taking king's landing differently. warning the ships about the giant bow and arrows, would have saved Missandei and a dragon. Bran is the ultimate piece of shit.

Also why did Sansa say he could not have children? did he criple his dick as well?

You can’t deny this show didn’t give us goodies, though. Not just memes, but general moments, scenery, music, the actors especially (I loooove all the ladies of this show so much). I appreciate it for that but I think it is lot more flawed than I realized at times mostly due to these dopey writers. I’m terrified for their take on Star Wars material.

That said @Dantae I lol’d when she said that because damn way to call a paralyzed boy out..

I am curious as to Bran suddenly gaining something of a personality the moment he is to be King. They made him a bit too mysterious this whole time for me to think being King was his plan. I guess I have to assume Bran knows things and this shall lead to something else for the story if people wish it so.

I do wonder what the spin offs will be specifically based around.

I wish I was joking earlier, the only way any of this works for me is to see Bran as some puppet master, whether he thinks for the greater good or he is just evil, but everything has to be laid at his feet (insert can't use them joke).

I agree about the writing, I was also able to dismiss most of the sloppiness...especially the last 3 seasons. my only need was for things to be wrapped up competently. I was even good with everything until Tyrion speaks in front of the 'committee'. there were so many jokes, the laughing at Sam and Sansa talking shit to an uncle who sacrificed as much or even more than her family.

not angry like so many, just disappointed it went out without any info on how they got to the final point.

the new way to discuss the show is to point out just odd things, so how about this one. How did they know Jon killed Dany?

The throne was destroyed, the dragon bailed with Dany's corpse. It looks like it left out the back of the throne room where no one could see much, so did Jon confess? why would he do that? he could have said anything and no one could have offered any dispute to his claims.

Presumably Jon's dumb ass told them. Why? Who knows. Good reasons aren't needed this season XD

Watched this last night as it was in my Recs. Guy seems to sum up my feelings on things pretty well.
