It's first aired at 2am on the Monday.

If you come into the thread before watching it on the Monday then you deserve what you get in my books. I don't watch until Monday night, so I don't come into the thread during the day on Monday.

That’s hardly surprising if you haven’t watched the 7 seasons prior to it you won’t have a clue who anyone is or what’s going on

It's nae box of delights.

What has Bran staying alive through all of this actually achieved?

From what I've seen he has offered nothing to any characters (his existence and journey resulting in his friends being killed) for the show his visions into the past is only helping the audience understand the wider story, but this doesn't impact any characters. Even Sam was able to work out who Jon really was.

 

His lines and screen time are basically pointless 

 

I hope he dies.

To be fair, all Sam knew was that Rhaegar had his marriage annulled and re-wed Lyanna, there was nothing in the diaries about a baby. Only Ned, Howland Reed (who is never mentioned in the show) and the birthing nurses (and presumably the previous 3 eyed raven) know about the baby until Bran sees it through weirwood.net. Littlefinger also hints in the show there was more to the story about RT kidnapping and raping LS, but that was probably just fan service and laying the foundations for the later reveal

 

You could argue he was also important re the Night King because he told them the NK would come for him and he could be used as bait.

 

But yes other than that relatively useless, I mean he could have maybe told Dany and Jon about Euron's fleet etc instead of telling Tyrion about the history and lore of wheelchairs, but maybe its all part of the plan (to avoid Dany ending up on the throne and being Mad King II and/or because he isn't Bran Stark anymore he doesn't want to get involved in squabbles between houses; his main objective of assisting in seeing off the NK being achieved

Deadwood movie out this year, end of month I think,  with the original cast. 

 

I suspect that will give closure.

Absolutely.

 

I think it was always planned for 4 seasons and they canned it after 3, meaning a hastily cobbled together ending was put in place.  Annoyingly just as groups were forming and sides were being taken for the finale.

 

Like above, hopefully the movie sorts that out. If anything, it gives me a reason to watch it all over again in advance.

Heard the last scene is Jon going beyond the wall to find a load of dead wildlings in the shape the Night King leaves behind. Not sure I’d like that ending.

He was a likeable wee rogue until he was defenestrated.  Since then he's been a bore.

Real spoiler this time.

Danny has certainly turned into Daddy’s girl. 

Expected it, but Kinnell!

 

Absolute beast of an episode. Crammed with non-stop gasps.

Best episode of the entire series! Made up for the slight disappointment of Episode 3.

That episode was pure ambivalence. Hated the choice they made in terms of Dany burning the city and slaughtering the people but loved the way it was all done.

 

Seems like a complete 180 in her personality in the space of a couple of episodes.

 

Also, the scorpions. From deadly in one episode to useless the next :facepalm:

Not enjoying this final series.

It's rushed, makes no sense and all the conclusions to the various plot threads established over 8 seasons are laughably bad.

Does feel a bit like that. Seven major characters bit the dust in that episode (some of them literally) and their death scenes felt rushed.

Set up nicely for the mad queen to Feel the wrath of Arya. Be fitting for her to crown her brother.

Yeah looks like Jon will end up on the iron throne. Wonder who Varys sent his ravens to.

Slightly disappointed at Cersei's end, but in a way quite apt that she was scrambling around in the crypts like a big feartie. Twitter appears to have lost it's shit over it though, so not all bad :D

I think the arc of Jamie and Cersi was good. Even the death apt to a degree ,the mountain though ? Qyburn ? Not seen anything on twitter. The scorpions annoyed me and the iron fleet after last week

I think they were trying to get at she'd worked out they were all pointing up at around 45 degrees for an arial attack and all she had to do was avoid the first shot and then she could get too low for them.

Conversely I think Arya is a nice name if you’re going down the daft route of naming your kids after TV characters.
