  • I doubt the show would have generated nearly the audience and critical acclaim it had had it started off with the quality of the last few seasons. Disappointing people is a tough thing, the D&D’s cut short the end on purpose. I don’t know why th…
  • Not with what they showed on screen, but if she was ruthless in purging whoever was “loyal to the wheel” or the old world or however she put it to Jon, absolutely.  So so basically I think there is absolutely a logical way for Daenerys to go mad ty…
  • I actually think Grey Worm ganking Jon Snow actually helps balance out the rest of the storybook Stark endings and makes total sense....   Murderbear said: I will say too though that the fact that Grey Worm either didn't IMMEDIATELY murder J…
  • I've been rocking around in my Donnager T since before the show was a glint in Beezos's eye.
  • Bah Gawd, that's Euron Greyjoy's music! Schlupp said:
  • Thanks- I guess I'll start watching it podcast free.
  • If they had more time they should have shown Dany only destroying the Red Keep in the battle for King's Landing, on the throne actually helping small folk but summarily cleansing King's Landing of those who were "loyal to the old world" and slaughte…
  • “Conleth Hill, who played the much-missed-this-week Lord Varys, said in a post-show interview that one of the things he regretted not having a chance to do was play a scene where his character reacts to the news of Littlefinger’s execution by the St…
  • That may be why he will never be able to end it.  LordBy said: George may or may not end it the same way (he will probably never end it at all I know), but if he does many of these arcs will pay off first.
  • I wonder how popular this show would be if it started off with the quality of these last 2 or 3 seasons....
  • Death of the author. There have been multiple lines of dialogue from Dany and Grey Worm that heavily imply atrocities were planned.  OldGriswold said: They literally wrote it. She also forgot about the Iron Fleet. Why are people using head-c…
  • I assume Jon confessed, and Grey Worm only executes their enemies if his Queen commands it, so there must have been a short circuit and he took Jon prisoner instead of executing him.... darwinfeeshy said: What was up with Jon being held pris…
  • I'm not investing any more in this show until I hear it's really excellent.  Season 1 was just okay to me and the show went seriously downhill in Season 2...
  • The 3 Eyed Raven and Night King tie up turned into mostly nothing IMO. Fullauto2009 said: Serious questions here: Lastly the entire 3 eyed raven plot, from the original 3 eyed raven to bran is entirely about ruling the 6 kingdoms? Seems li…
  • The innate natural dragon sense of worldly corruption combined with the near psionic link with Daenerys that showed him her overwhelming objective.... CeciliaM said: The only true WTF moment for me is when Drogon melted down the Iron Throne.…
  • I think Highgarden is the money machine now that the Lannisters are tapped out, so Bronn would be de facto Master of Coin anyway.   Murderbear said: Also, Bronn is the Master of Coin, why exactly? He's cunning as hell for sure but I don't kn…
  • Yeah, once you grant that Dany turned into utopian radical genocidal Great Leader figure in 1 episode (though the breaking the wheel and Great Leader messianic tendencies had been there for some time), the ending really wasn't half bad.  Jon Snow ga…
  • They said the council will pick the successor, at the same place where they were meeting. LordBy said:Bran as King? Unearned entirely. WTF has Bran been doing since the holding of the door? Was he manipulating everything for his ascension? That…
  • Amazing last minute defeat of Daenerys's version of utopian socialism by Jon Snow - it was like killing Stalin before he really got going.....
  • She has a certain messianic zeal that having the dragons accentuated.... Teresa from Concord said: CeciliaM said: Well she can also survive deadly fires, which is how she gets followers a couple of times. I think it's more prosaic - …
  • Yep, except the Brexit party seems about to lead the field in the European elections the UK has been forced to participate in since it hasn't left yet.  Odds look grim.   CeciliaM said: Kate23 said: I’m in a constant state of anxiety …
  • Everyone would have been better off if they had just followed Robert Baratheon's advice... jluzania said: As divisive as this episode is, I feel one aspect of Dany's decision may have gone under appreciated. And that is this.  This asshole.…
  • There’s a White Walker prequel?  Why? Who cares at this point?
  • It's a lot more than that - a ton of time was spent on Jon Snow at the wall and beyond it, unifying the Wildlings and the civilized folk.  Given the fact it turned into a pretty big nothingburger for the realm, retrospectively cutting the zombie plo…
  • I think you’re kidding yourself if you think a little filler would get anywhere near the reaction this letdown has entailed. They’re not anyway equivalent (see the entire run of Better Call Saul as an example.) hoos30 said: Doctor_Ni…
  • Jamie’s ultimate destination: Totally Fine Show’s ham handed overnight flippity floppity: Not very good. 
  • Cersei no longer cares about hiding her relationship with Jamie after blowing up the Sept, which is a sign that normal concerns no longer matter. 
  • Just kill the  nobles and the Court, very worrying for everyone.  But we don’t have time for nuance and Dany sliding into “madness” later. 
  • Not that the show showed us much about that, but Cersei dispensed with most of the traditional concerns of running a state when she blew the Sept.  I think the not caring about exposing her relationship was evidence of that.  Anominal said: …
  • Don’t forget there was a strong goading Theon on component- between his father making him feel like a loser and then in the actual taking of Winterfell, he tries to let Ser Roderick off with the dungeon and his 2nd, who clearly thinks Theon is a los…
