I might not even watch it. Might just wait until to tomorrow and see if the buzx is good or bad, if it's bad just scrap the whole thing and wait for Goerge to gwt the books out. The long night is most likely the wait for George to catch up to this point in the story.

Hate to say it, but I think he's going to pull a Robert Jordan.

:(.

He is richer and more famous/active pkus he is living in the future, he'll find a way to keep himself alive and likely not publish if only to stick it to the fans who await his death.

This leaked episode also sorted out possible true spoilers for the last two episodes, posted months ago. Oh boy. We're in...

Spoiler!
real danger of a Dexter-like finale.


 

 

 

 

 

Can't wait for tonight's episode. I may have hurried up with my school work so I could be done in time to watch it, worth.



Another meh episode for me, like 6 or 7/10.

Spoiler!

I correctly predicted the whole Jon stuff and that Renly would be legitimized.

While the Episode once again has great shots I dislike the writing.

Like the Greyjoy ambush. Dany is FLYING on a FUCKING DRAGON. She should have seen those boats from miles away. But noooooo they had to nerf her once again because they realized Dragons are OP in that universe.

Once again travelling speeds are all over the place. Euron and Dany are just teleporting while Jon seems to be stuck in a traffic jam.

Varys political compass is a fucking roulette wheel.

Spoiler!

Once again, the strategy in this show has me befuddled. I've played against AI in Empire Earth that utilized better strategy than Jon/Dany. Overall, I enjoyed the episode and thought that its tone felt more like Game of Thrones than the last, but it feels full of issues, like the abysmal strategy, weird decisions, questionable conflicts and a heaping helping of convenience.

Like, did Dany honestly think that Cersei would have nothing to combat the dragons? The solution that they came up with wasn't even inventive, it was big arrows.

I will say that this episode has again showed that GoT is really good at building tension and really bad at paying it off...



Writing has been lousy at times in prior seasons but with those great moments that still kept me hooked.

But the way that they are handling Dany and Jon and Sansa and Jaime and the nonsense they are making them say, it's worse than if they were killed off from the show.

This whole episode felt like a soap opera.

They are ruining Dany for me. Dany can be vengeful and can take drastic measures, but the whole thing she's seems to be about to do is so against how she was portrayed as a ruler in the first seasons.

Either they had to write Dany scarier and bloodthirstier in the first seasons or they should have written a better transition for her character to how she is now, we got none of that.

These characters are bipolar or have split personality or some nonsense. This may be the worse season from the whole show, and this is the most important one...



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

It's a damn soap opera now. It's like watching a car wreck unfold and I'm completely numb to it.

It's destroyed. They fucked us and there is no hope now. Shame.

You're projecting your own image of what you want Dany to be. She's shown many hints that she could have the latent madness (keyword being 'latent' as it's described pretty clearly in the lore) of her family, and it's become more clear as the seasons have gone on and she's become more obssessed with the throne.
One of the biggest hints was actually given in the very first episode of the series: "He who passes the sentance should swing the sword." For all the times Dany has ordered her soldiers to behead, or her dragons to burn, has she ever actually passed out judgement herself? The last episode was the first time we even saw her holding a sword, when she was fighting for her life.
Don't forget that Aerys, 'The Mad King', actually had a very positive outlook in his first dozen years of ruling, before the 'latent' madness started to kick in.

The soft rule has always been, "Whenever a Targaryen is born, the Gods flip a coin..." The last four Targaryens to be born: Rhaegar, Viserys, Daenerys, and Jon (not including Rhaegar's other two kids who died as children). Viserys was clearly shown to be mad early on, which led people to believe Dany would be the good one. But Rhaegar was one of the most beloved Targaryens ever, and died a hero. And now we know that Jon is also a Targaryen, and he's one of the most noble and honest men alive. So where would that leave Daenerys in the equation?

Seems to be a common complaint amongst people who want to hate on the recent seasons, that Game of Thrones is a show which is supposed to subvert tropes and expectations, and yet it's generally the same people who complain when everything doesn't go the way they believed it was supposed to.
