    Book actually got me onto a major Neil Gaiman kick, went on to another half dozen or so of his novels and they were pretty gr8.

    WHO WILL DIE IN GAEM OF THEORNS

    ????

    WHO WILL SIT ON THE IRON THRONE

    I just need Sandor to live and I'll be satisfied. Don't rly care about Juan Snew or dragon barbie. Kill them all. Let's go for the bad ending where Cersei wins bc she's playing 4d chess while everyone else is an idiot.

    I'd be p okay w/Ceresei Wins ending just due to the potential number of people losing their shit. Would be hilarious.

    I'm going to wait and watch 2 or 3 episodes at a time. I find it takes me like 20-40 minutes to get into a show or movie. so no spoilers in this thread. utumno please delete any spoilers and then ban the poster.

    ***SPOILERS***

    Cersei didn't get her elephants.

    Rly disappointed. Why even have a final season if you're not delivering elephants?

    Posting about the episode here. Deal with it Harper.

    The Dany/Jon scenes were god awful and representative of everything that is not good about the post-books writing on the show.

    The dragon riding was cheesy as fuck, an unnecessary waste of limited screen time left in the series, and had inexplicably bad CGI. That wasn't what bugged me about it, though. Here's some actual dialogue that someone wrote:

    Jon: "It's cold up here for a southern girl..."
    Daenerys: "So keep your queen warm" ; )

    This is George Lucas levels of terrible, and it's even worse than it sounds on paper because Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke have awkward negative chemistry.

    also idk when it happened but she looks like a grandma now

    I wasn't expecting a table-setting episode when there's only five left in the entire series, but the rest of it was fine. Every major character in the north having tension or problems with someone else should make for good drama.

    The white walkers crab legs bloomin onion was gross and seemed forced to me. I feel like some writer thought it was a really rad idea for a SHOCKING GORE VISUAL but didn't think about how fucking silly it would be for these zombies to take time out of their march south to meticulously arrange limbs on a wall as if it's arts & crafts day at the Umber house.

    A lot of poor attempts at comedy in this episode. The worst part was clearly Jon and Daenerys. I’m starting to hate every scene involving Daenerys, and Emilia Clarke is a terrible actress anyway.

    I feel like Tyrion gets worse every season. He’s been reduced to making lame jokes for the audience at this point. Once they got past what GRRM already wrote for him, the show writers didn’t know what to do.

    It’s fun because we’ve all been wanting to see the story play out, but a lot of the new plot is fucking stupid. I know GRRM hasn’t produced shit in years, and the last two books weren’t stellar in comparison to the first three, but we deserve better than this garbage.

    I saw a commercial for Game of Thrones themed boxes of Oreo cookies. I get that HBO is trying to gorge themselves while the gravy train is at the station, but surely to God someone can speak up at a marketing meeting and suggest they tone it down a notch or 20.

    you gotta lower expectations bros. if you view the last season as high-budget fan-fiction, you're going to be ok.

    Came here to basically say what Sear/Sanlaven just said, esp. Sanlaven re: Tyrion. All of the witty writing for all of the characters has pretty much evaporated at this point. I thought the dialog between Cersei and whatshisname was especially painful.

    I know "everyone dies (possibly minus one person)" is like the top pick for the ending but I'm gonna call it right now that however it ends, Tyrion's gonna die. Maybe
    Bron(sp?)
    does it. It's a cheap thrill for the writers and costs nothing at this point.

    Episode was 100% forgettable, even for a table setting episode. I think even by the broader post-book-writing standard the next couple episodes--maybe even the whole season are likely to be pretty rough, as they try desperately to check all the boxes with the limited remaining screen time. I mean you'd think Jon finding out he's the true king and has been banging his cousin or whatever would've been executed in a bit more memorable a fashion, but alas.

    I predict the show ending with Sansa on the throne after John becomes king and dies, probably sacrifices himself or dies in a valiant yet trite manner.
