I loved it. That episode had some great schlock.

Grumpy Neutral for me is fair. My expectations have been sufficiently lowered, lol. And I didn't hate the ending, just hated the half-assed way they got there.

I could see Dany telling Jon to bring his sisters under heel or she is going to burn them too which will make him decide she has to die. Or they capture Arya and prepare to execute. He is going to choose his true family eight there when Dany puts him on the spot.
yeah, i have a feelling the Arya "don't forget that" regarding family is going to come back around.

I don't think this season is bad. Quite the opposite. I love it.

I think most people are sad it is all going to be over. This is like every single long epic show, it has to end and some people hate that it has to end, so they crap all over it.

It is strange but it is the same song different dance. Can't people just enjoy it?


It's going about as I expected. You can't wrap up an epic tale like this in a tight, neat little bow. They could drag it out for 2-3 more seasons and tie everything up nicely, and we'd all enjoy that, but it's just not realistic or feasible.

There could never be a nice and tidy ending that someone wouldn't hate. I wish they would have spent a little more effort making it a little neater....we didn't need 45 minutes of a dragon strafing a city with atomic fireballs. They could have spared a few strafing runs and spent 3 minutes letting Cersi get killed in the way she deserved...publicly and in humiliating fashiion. One example.

Same for me. Don't hate it, but dislike or am disappointed with certain pieces and the overall let down of the last 2 seasons.

I swear, if this is a Sopranos like ending where Bran is seeing all these stories as the 3ER, gets murdererd by someone causing the memories to go to a black screen, I'm gonna die.

Reading through this thread, its obvious some people have never shot a gun before. Shooting at a deer that is unaware its being shot at is easy, even if its running. Shooting at a deer that is zig-zagging, trying to avoid being shot is much, much harder.

Having me in the "Hated It" column is being somewhat generous.

I though episode 4 was Dexter finale bad. Just mind numbingly stupid and only surpassed by the Sansa rape episode. Episode 5 was bad in comparison to the rest of the show, but mainly because they've rushed the season. I don't have high expectations anymore, but I do think it'll end better than Dexter, which might have the worst ending of any show I've seen. #prayingfornologgingco

Arya or Bran probably have the best chance of taking out Dany I guess.

I'm just not sure Bran gives a crap. Maybe he would if Dany is coming to destroy Winterfell.
I don't see how Arya can kill Dany without it feeling rushed. Dany will never let Arya anywhere close to her, so Arya is obviously going to have to kill someone close to Dany. The only person I see possible being Grey Worm (Jon and Tyrion are essentially traitors to her now). Maybe they'll have Arya kill Grey Worm in a brothel.


How is Jon a traitor?

Question:

At what point did GOT cross into blockbuster action series for a lot of y'all?

I keep seeing posts about how cool this battle was or how awesome this special effect looked, and I cannot help but wonder when this movie crossed over into that type of spectacle or event?

She considers Jon the primary traitor - if he had kept his mouth shut none of this would have happened in her opinion.

Did Jon ever actually say he'd keep his mouth shut? I can't recall.

How is Jon a traitor?
Well, he told his family about his lineage, doesn't love her any more, and he didn't help murder innocent civilians (he tried to stop his forces and help civilians). Based off of Dany's reaction to the people of King's Landing not immediately supporting her, I'm pretty sure she would consider him a traitor. Also, there's no way Jon could possibly support her anymore.

The ironic thing is that the only thing he's a traitor to is her lie.

I liked the episode. I didn't think her turn to MQ as too fast but I could see why others might feel that way.but

By the way, I've always been a bigger supporter of the Starks than of Dany's.

Did Jon ever PROMISE not to tell his family? I don't think he did. I think she's wrong to oppose his stronger claim and want him to keep it secret.

Anyone else annoyed by Arya's lack of involvement with her list? Everyone on it is dead now (except Ilyn Payne), but she really didn't do much of the killing.

Cersie -- Dead, not by Arya
Ilyn Payne -- Unknown, but if dead not by Arya
Melisandre -- Dead, not by Arya
Beric Dondarrion -- Dead, not by Arya (Removed from list before his death)
Thoros of Myr -- Dead, not by Arya
Polliver -- Dead, stabbed with needle by Arya
Joffrey -- Dead, not by Arya
Rorge -- Dead, Stabbed by Arya
The Mountain -- Dead, not by Arya
The Hound -- Dead, not by Arya (Not officially removed, but basically was)
Tywin -- Dead, not by Arya
Meryn Trant -- Dead, by Arya
Walder Frey -- Dead, by Arya

Blackwater

Actually I disagree. Blackwater was a massive battle and spectacle but it was an aberration back then when most of the show was intrigue and dialogue. It seemed like after the Battle of the Bustards was when the show veered more towards huge set pieces rather than characters.

I was mostly okay with Arya killing the NK. But if she's also the one who kills Dany, I'm going to be unhappy. Assuming Dany dies, I feel like it *has* to be Jon.

And I highly, highly doubt it's Bran. He didn't do anything to influence the BoW, I can't think of any reason he'd care to suddenly get involved with Dany

No, I always thought her list was pathetic. It was something a kid would do - all the people I'll kill!!- but because of what she experienced as a kid she made it her reason to live, and devoted her life to attaining it. I cheered when she looked at Sandor and realized, no, I don't want to be like you. I don't want revenge to rule my life anymore.

I'm hoping that she's headed home because she knows Sansa and Bran are in grave danger from Dani. To fight for her living family, not her dead.
