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.

 

 

 

Yep, completely D&D's decision, not HBO's, to compress these last 2 seasons.

 



 they have built up Daenerys to lose it and go for the dracarys approach but the expectation is that if she went for the red keep and Cersei, anyone caught up would be regrettable collateral damage. She has a history of a brutal streak going all the way back (watching coldly as her brother's head is melted, putting Xohan and her former handmaid in a vault to starve to death, crucifying alive the Mereen masters, and burning the Tarlys alive for not bending the knee).But these were her enemies, not innocent smallfolk. Her going for the red keep and Cersei would have made sense even if those inside got caught up in it, they would be collateral damage and her justification would have been that she was saving the majority in taking the throne from Cersei.

 

BUT burning the entire city after it had surrendered, and all the innocent people in it? Its completely contrary to everything her character has done for 8 years, freeing slaves etc. Now just because Cersei has killed her mate, she's feeling a little sad Jon would put out anymore, and everyone doesn't just bow to her immediately because of her lineage, she just roasts alive women and children by the score and lays waste to the capital's infrastucture?

 

Its sad they are rushing the end to such a great show.

 

-Cleganebowl was good.

-Grey Worm is a bawbag

-Arya abandons one Queen killing mission  but now has another. She hasn't face swapped at all this season, could this be the chance? But she has a few big kills to her name and her doing in Dany as well might be a bit boring

-Jaime's arc of redemption was a complete waste of time.

-Lena Headey is a great actress and has been wasted this season. She actually made me feel sorry for Cersei in those final moments.

For me, season 5 was a waste. Too much time spent on the Sons of The Harpy and Mormont coming back to Mereen when they could have edged her back to Dragonstone so much quicker. The whole pact with the Greyjoy’s, Sand Snakes and Lady Orlenna felt very rushed too. 

 

Spoiler

In terms of episode quality, this one was a belter. I’m only a bit miffed at the way Cersei and Jaime die. A bit anti-climatic. Qyborn though :laugh: And Clegane-bowl. Outstanding.

Someone mentioned that Cersei had 20 lines of dialogue this entire season.

 

TWENTY!

I've been thinking for a long time hat Dany is heading the way of her father and showing signs of becoming the Mad Queen. I reckon infighting between the allies is the direction we're heading in.

Not far off but not totally exact either.

That was great entertainment, I am going to go against the grain and say that all the build up, all the character development was designed for it to reach a speedy and bloody end, I think it's quite fitting

Just read the leaks, won’t post anything.

 

Skybet have removed all their markets, which I’m taking as confirmation that they are legit.

 

Raging that I read them ?.

 

Without posting ANY details, does the alleged leaked ending tie in with what happened in episode 5 or has the leak been proven to be shite?

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

 

 

Epic episode but as well as the above I felt the dragon wasa bit overpowered suddenly. Went from managing to roast a few lannisters previously to the fire crumbling solid stone buildings in a single hit. Think drogon had been on the roids over night

The writing is so unbelievably obvious, she’s going like her dad, “the mad queen” and she’s gonna die.. I wonder who will have to do it. ? the real king who loves her maybe. 

 

This is series has absolutely ****ed the whole show.. 

 

Told you.. writing is utter shite, easily the worst **** up of a TV show in history ?

My theory is that Tyrion and Sansa will strike a deal as an estranged couple to split the kingdoms and rule the north and south in isolation from each other and that will bring peace.

It was a decent watch imo, now that I've accepted that everything's in fast forward mode and it's more about the spectacular than the storyline.

 

Varys, who always had a Plan B, got caught fairly easily.

Cersei, who always had a Plan B, was a rabbite in the headlights.

Arya, the cold hearted assassin, suddenly became a young girl again after one line from the Hound.

The Mad Targaryen gene suddenly has its way with Danerys and she sets about destroying an entire city that, presumably, she'll need to rebuild.  Careless

It was exciting TV, no doubt about that.  but....

Spoiler

Episode 4, Dragon taken out really easily, having been built up as invincible game changing weapon since season 1

Episode 5 - Dragon back to being invincible game changing weapon, turns out all you have to do is fly really high first

Episode 3 - Army of the Dead taken out in one Episode having been built up as the final be all or end all enemy since the very first episode

 

I think the show's problem is that there are so many complex interwoven stories and characters, that it would be have been almost impossible to end the characters story arc's in a satisfying way, hence the producers  have gone for a big bang approach. Still can't wait for next week's episode.

Bollocks. I’ve just remembered Bronn is still wandering around somewhere with his pointless storyline. Unless the writers are going to make it a big thing for some reason.

Not so sure, Brienne for instance - her arc was complete when knighted, no need for the love in with Jamie, she could have died and he could have died having convincing Cersei her to ring the bell and escape, or have escaped and rung the bell behind her back.  Tormund should also have died - don’t believe he just retired to the north with ghost.. lame. There had been so much lame

Seemingly, all irrelevant to the show writers.

Just saw a great tweet basically saying Good work for Lena Headey, $1,000,000 an episode to look out a window and drink wine.

Absurd. But.....that’s what you earn in a series like this where you can’t change actors and don’t tie them down. HBO will make much more and Headey is pivotal regardless.

its obscene though I agree. Think Martin at Hearts ??
