    I know Jim and A.Ron mostly are either mixed on it or don't like the film, 58% to 60% of critics dislike it, and you know what a majority of the opinions are absolutely fair. However, I'm gonna come right out and say it. I'm making no apologies for loving this f'ing movie. 

    To the folks in the know, KOTM is for better or for worse, a Toho Heisei era quality film/script with a Hollywood budget. If that's not your thing then no this movie will not do it. If the Godzilla 90's era was your jam, then this is a love letter to you.

    Can we start a shoulda list?  Seems like many were upset because they had a big bag of built up, pre-conceived shoulda's that they brought in with them when they watched the episode.

    So "Volanqar" means "younger sibling" right? And Dany T was the younger sister of Rhaegar and Viserys right? And Dany T buried Cersei in her Red Keep by blowing up the whole motherfucker right?  Seems to me the Valonqar Prophecy was not violated but fulfilled.  There were many that thought it shoulda been Jaime or shoulda been Tyrion, or with the gender-neutral Valyrian is coulda and shoulda been Arya.   

    I think the prophecy specifically said the Valonqar would wrap their hands around Cersei's neck and that she would suffocate. 

    I suppose Jaime did put his hand on her neck but in a non threatening manner and perhaps she suffocated under the rubble. So it could've still been fulfilled just not in the way Cersei interpreted it.

    I liked the episode.

    However I hated the end of Jaime's arc. In some way I hope that's because GRRM will also end it that way because if this was a showrunner move then I think it was a poor move. Its tragic sure but I don't know. Just not pleased with it.

    I actually like the "unsatisfactory" way Cersei went out. Its very Game of Thrones for the demise of the antagonists to not go out as fitting or violently as you would expect. 

    Cersei died a pretty messed up death too. She either got crushed by rocks or will be trapped beneath, essentially being buried alive. What my point was that the antagonists mostly don't go out the way we narratively expect from our run of the mill epic tales. There were many who wanted/expected Cersei to die by the hand of Jaime, Arya or in a more direct manner by Dany. Joffrey got poisoned by Littlefinger and Olenna, not murdered viciously by Arya, Sansa or Tyrion. Tywin gets killed on the toilet. Roose Bolton got killed by his own son, not any of the Starks. Even looking at the protagonists, King Robert was killed by a pig, Ned's execution ordered by Joffrey not Cersei or Jaime. I think Ramsay and Walder have been the only two fully satisfying deaths for me because their end came at the hands of the characters that greatly suffered from them. 

    I can understand why some people don't like that Cersei died in the manner that she did and I too feel a level of dissatisfaction, but for me its a similar "dissatisfaction" to that of Joffrey I guess.

    I felt so fucking bad for Brienne. Jaime basically threw rocks at her and told her to go away, like Arya did to Nymeria in season 1.

    I think he is 100% going back to "take care" of Cersei, by saving her from herself and/or saving everyone else from her. It probably would have made Brienne feel better if he had just told her that he has to go try to stop Cersei, especially if that's actually what he's doing.
    I agree that Jaime is going back to stop Cersei. How I read the scene is he doesn't fully explain his plans to Brienne because he knows that she undoubtedly will go with him to help him and he's trying to keep her safe by withholding information even though he knows its breaking her heart. 

    Question is does she go after him anyway?

    To respond to Jim and A Ron's question about the lanky kid that shows up in the end, he's the kid Tony Stark meets in the middle of Iron Man 3.
