saw this on the walking dead wiki page, and thought it was interesting that the last five episode titles of this season are from Dale's season two speech when he's asked about why he still looks at his watch. "I give you a mausoleum of all hope and desire which will fit yourand 2 others.
individual needs, no better than it did mine and my father before me. I
give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you may forget it. For a moment, now and then, and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it."
Ben said:So the magic ninja who has been training as an Assassin killing the night king isn’t a good pay off? Despite her being given the dagger to do it last season? Or Mel’s prophecy that was given to her in season 2? Or her being trained for it since season one? All the main players played their part, without them all doing what they did, the living would have lost. Honestly how much of this blowback is because it subverted your expectations?

While it is a bit frustrating that narrative short cuts were taken to get everyone in the same space, which potentially cheapens some of the exchanges, I still ate it all up. Especially the Jaimie and Brienne moments. Those were fantastic and a long time coming.
