  • 804 - The Last of the Starks

    Thanks @All The Chickens. Excuse me while I go and weep for the rest of the day. You are shattering my "it's okay, it will be okay, everything is fine" mantra.

    It is 100% a dog lover thing. I think it is symbolic that Jon is leaving behind his former Stark life, and I think Ghost will be so happy North, and I am grateful beyond belief I don't have to witness Ghost's death. But all that rationality flies out the window when Jon doesn't even boop or scritch that big, floofy, good boi. Shame! Shame! Shame! 
    This shit had me yelling at the TV. I mean, just "peacing out" on Ghost like that is just fucking wrong, and it was TOTALLY a moment where I saw the typewriters clacking and the budget reports. Jon wasn't ever really a great wolf owner, but to not have a "moment" of it is just beyond wrong. I mean, this is an animal that he is connected to beyond most human animal relationships which can be incredibly meaningful without warging/mind meld types of influences. This was bullshit, and I refuse to believe that they couldn't have given the moment at least an ounce of gravity in comparison to the goodbyes with Tormund and Sam. That sucked. I liked the episode quite a bit, but that was bullshit.
    I forgot to add: So what's the consequence? I will move on and just call bullshit and go on with my life UNLESS they think they can extract some sort of hearfelt reunion between Jon and Ghost at the end. That shit is over. I will literally "BOO" at my TV is the Double D's think they can extract some "look guys, it's Ghost! Ghost and Jon: together again. Doesn't it feel great!" type of thing. The show took a giant shit on that relationship, and if it's because the show is just done with Ghost, fine, but no feelings manipulation that they did the opposite of earning. None from me at least.
    Same all the way. I think it is just done and over. I live in fear of expressing my feelings for this show because I am not an internet warrior and people coming at me are terrifying. With that said, I am loving this season and the reason I am is because I have to let some of that stuff just roll off and let it go. I mean, I can't let bad dog ownership go...(insert angry face). Now, I will sheepishly say that while I 100% agree there is no redeeming the Jon/Ghost guffaw-I can't promise that I wouldn't fall for the "doesn't it feel great" gambit. I am weak.

    Maybe it is the dog lover in me...but I don't think Jon could say goodbye to Ghost.  His demeanor said to me that he would rather go "home" with Tormund and if he stopped and thought about it, he would have. Heartbreaking.

  • Is the Three-Eyed Raven the show's biggest problem?

    I loved this episode. I am sure I am being ruled by emotions-it was so good to just be back in the world! But I agree that the fact of Bran makes communication confusing to me. When Bran interrupted to say the wall was down and the dragon was on the dead's side I could not gauge the reaction. Did Jon and Dany already know? In the Godswood, did Arya already know about Jon's heritage? And that led me to wonder why Sam did not already know about his family. It is a small quibble, but I am confused as to how communication works and who knows what at this point. Also, slightly off topic-in the after interview they talked about how only Targs can ride dragons and Jon should have caught on. But has this concept been introduced in the series? I have watched and read the books so many times I can't remember what goes where.
