Well, apparently Jon and Tyrion are there to represent the 50% of the audience that didn't see it coming! 

I actually find Tyrion's arc to be quite interesting. He's gone from one of the most devious and clever characters to one of the most naive and foolish in direct relation to him becoming more loyal and humane (which I guess most would see as positive character traits). Then again, it could just the volume of wine he's drinking. 

Yeah, Tyrion was my favorite character, but has been such a disappointment in the past few seasons now.

Even his own actor made fun of how dumb Tyrion is now.

Cities may not simply surrender. But this one have after the destruction of only some strategic portions. And the army just dropped sword.

Yes Dany is less savage than those rulers, killing the slave owners and opposing families aren't that problematic, but it were cracks in the armor that she wasn't perfect and lovely ruler.

Well, historically the city guard would likely still be executed after the surrender.

But I see what you mean and... indeed. Which makes the screenwriters choice for the precise timing of even more baffling and clearly for shock purposes. It's deliberately forced so no one in the audience is supposed to sympathize with her after that. There's no moral shade of grey. At no moment your convictions are challenged. To people who claimed the White Wakers and the NK weren't interesting because it was manichaeistic... well, there we have it.

Honestly, Attack of the Clones, the second Star Wars prequel, with all of its flaws, actually manages to first showcase Anakin's issues, motivations and inner conflicts better than anything done with Daenerys in the last two or three seasons (which was basically looking depressed and snapping at Tyrion everytime he comes up with his idiotic ideas). Revenge of the Sith, then, it's Shakespeare next to this.

They ruined Jamie, Cercei and Danny in a single episode, the snap was fucking stupid, why not go straight to Cercei and blew that shit out . But is completely stupid Danny would murder the intire fucking city , makes no fucking sense . The worst moment i ever seen on a séries. She won and made decision to murder everyone makes no sense. Mad is not completely retarded.

Lord have Mercy on star wars with these two idiots now

And saying the season having only 6 episodes isn't enough to develop the madness of her is also bad point, this gives over 7h of show. A movie have to do all that in under 1h30 and several do it greatly.

I just realized that overall Euron Greyjoy did more damage to Dany than the Night King and the army of the undead.

And Dany probably doesn't even remember his name and face.

Star Wars is dead. Rian Johnson put the thing to sleep.



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

The icing on the cake was that Dany spent more time going after innocent civilians than she did going after Cercei. Allowing Cercei time to escape, just so Dany could slaughter more innocent people.

And Cercei could very well have escaped and survive, if not for collapsing rocks.



First good episode from S8



One of the better episodes of the season. I have no idea why people think Dany's snapping was too sudden. It's been hinted and her character developed to it for many seasons.

The ending of Jamie and Cercei was good and somehow a bit sad, and the fight between Hound and Mountain was cool as fuck. The one character they completely wasted was Euron though.. what a pointless and lame fight between him and Jamie and then that awful "omg omg I killed Jamie Lannister" line geez lol. So bad.

edit. I must add I always thought Euron was a useless and poorly-written character anyway. Reminded me of that bad guy from Commando.
