Rewatched it with more brightness. Slightly better. I think watching through Amazon might be a problem as noted many times here.

As far as Bran with the crows, I disagree the NK pointed at him. That's what I thought originally.. but up until then, the trenches had been lit and the wights were just waiting. Then he pointed forward and they start marching in multiple single lines to lay down on the fire. After that, we see the NK on his dragon riding over the trenches. The NK was leading his army, not pointing at a crow and somehow realizing the guy who always knows the whereabouts of is hiding by a tree (and then waiting a long ass time to send any of his army that way).

Also Arya's kill would have been the best if she had said "not today" to the night king as he is essentially their god of death.
This isn't an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Not every great kill has to have some corny one-liner before the trigger is pulled. Also, she literally says that in her scene right before that to Mel.

You just mad about Arya being the one to kill the Night King or something?

And for someone who hasn't seen endgame yet (going tomorrow).. yes, the post multiple pages back that was an attempt to be clever was very clearly about to spoil it for me.. luckily I scrolled past it once I realized what the poster was getting at. Very bad form, no matter how cleverly and ambiguous you thought it seemed. Just don't post that ***** It's not hard.

Winter is coming ... ok now it's gone

also..


The crypts weren't safe.
I'm glad that they did it as a happy little accident that the Night King was most likely even unaware of happening. He was raising the dead so Jon couldn't get at him, and it just happened to also screw the people in the crypts over.

Well, I can tell you that Winterville is going to need a new paint job and a sheet load of screen doors.

I adjusted the brightness setting just a tad (was given a really really top of the line 1080p TV, right before the 4K revolution, by my uncle when he moved to Canada) and watched on HBO now. Really had no issues seeing at all. The contrasts and the deep dark colours were really good. Just to test I watched on a really cheap 4K my parents have and it was not nearly as good.

I think the dragonglass disintegration vs non disintegration has to do with how long they've been dead. The one Arya shanked in the library looked pretty fresh, so no disintegration.

Such a let down. Go ahead and dogpile for being a naysayer.

They did exactly what I feared. They rushed this entire story arc. THE existential threat to all mankind in this universe and literally led up to from the very first scene of season one...just done and wrapped up as a throwaway side story. This whole thing felt so cheap. This was not some beautiful moment of cinematography and story writing of the single blade thrust ending the world threat. It was lazy and I am positive they just wanted to wrap this up as quickly as possible and move on as they ran out of time.

So many throw away moments.

Dothraki? Let's write them out in 4 minutes.

NK origins, motivations, entire point of even being in the show....nah.

This entire story arc was completely pointless to me. Even worse than the time they wasted on Dorn.

Dang. Super disappointed.

Damn good caveat and you are right. I even thought about that myself after the show ended. I went from a befuddled "was that it? Is that really how they are going to wrap up the NK?" to "This is GoT. Perhaps not all is as it seems for now."

We shall just have to see. There is just so little time left to do much of anything....

atta boy.

they've done a great job with the whole series, lets let them finish it

plus, this way is much easier than stressing out about something we cant change anyway

Anyone else notice that Arya beat the NK using a move similar to how she bested Brienne?

Dagger hand pinned -> drop the dagger into the other hand.



"Who taught you how to do that?"

Who is left on Arya's list outside of Cersei?
Ilyn Payne, the hound too technically


Well the Hound is off the list and Ilyn Payne's actor past away from cancer several years ago and they've left him out of the show
Got cancer - but recovered

Yup. As I said earlier, this is not going to age well at all. They effed up the entire series.

I really enjoyed it, but the execution was lacking in spots and it frustrated me. A number of scenes were too dark. Some of the fighting, particularly with the dragons, was hard to follow.

But Arya was so baller at the end. Not today.

I know some people can't be satisfied no matter what on here, but the episode went above and beyond my expections. I like the writers' idea of not revealing the NK's intentions. I think it makes him more sinister and less relatable, just like the Joker in the Dark Knight. "Some people just want to watch the world burn" is how I take it.

And I thought the Dothraki slaughter, while depressing, added to the terror at the beginning of the battle. War is a sometimes a waste (like what happened to the Dothraki) and I thought the confusion on screen during the dragon scenes added in the tenseness and the "fog of war" aspect. You got a good feeling of Jon and Dany's point of view.

My only question...how is there any Army left to invade Kings Landing? There were like 10 people left.

were you people this pist off when frodo decided to keep the ring at the last second and it was gollum who ended up ironically destroying the ring?

because the whole trilogy was building up to frodo doing it


No, because the movie and books repeatedly told you and showed you that the ring corrupts the wearer and makes him not want to give it up.


And the movies and books repeatedly tell you that Jon gets bailed out at the end of every conflict he faces, Arya is always able to sneak in and murder whomever she wants, and the people who succeed in this story are not the stereotypical people you would expect.

Dragons. After managing to survive the WW army, 20,000 live humans should be a cakewalk.

But you're still right. They need more bodies to make the last big battle episode interesting. I suspect they'll find them somewhere.

So much this. I read the first point and could tell what he was getting at, and then he was still trying to defend himself later. I'm trying my best to avoid spoilers, and then in a thread that has no relation to the MCU it almost gets ruined. May be time to check avoid the entertainment board completely with s*** like that going on.

People who spoil crap are losers but guess what...there are a lot of losers out there.

If there's something you want to see, and you get online before you see it, getting spoiled is 100% on you. If you care that much just stay offline.

Getting spoiled is not 100% on me when I'm reading something completely unrelated only days after it's release. I know staying offline is the only true way to stay completely spoiler free but I'm avoiding social media and other things with the potential to spoil it, is it so much to ask people not be a-holes on a thread that has literally nothing to do with Endgame?

Agreed! If I hadn't been at the movie theater watching Endgame before coming home to watch my recording of GoT, I would have been pretty pissed off.

By the way, I don't recommend spending an evening watching Endgame and The Long Night GoT episode back-to-back. I didn't get much sleep last night.

Only one question after reading this thread, and it's a really minor one... Does anyone think there was a reason why they showed Ser Davos on the wall and watching Arya kicking undead ass with her dragon glass staff? We already knew she was a ninja and one of of the most likely candidates to kill the NK. Will this come up in the next episode?

Yes. It is too much to ask. Like I said there are a lot of idiots out there. Just stay off the internet and go see the movie/show. Probably not worth it.

Very frustrating episode.

Leaving it so dark that we couldn't tell WTF was happening most of the time. Terrible. I get it, it's war and no one knows what's going on. But I'm trying to consume a product here. I'm not fighting a battle.

It just got tedious. It probably could've been 20 minutes shorter and been a lot better episode.

So many dumb character decisions everywhere.

Especially when you compare this episode to some of the other epics that this series has produced, this just falls flat.

I'm not sure why everyone is confused about the NK and his motivation. The children of the forest explained that to Bran several seasons ago. I thought we would get a better explaination of how it all worked, like what the spirals meant and how the Wall was created with magic, but I thought the motivation was pretty clear. The children created him to kill man. He wanted to kill man.

Agree 100%. This is a game of thrones thread. Whomever puts spoilers for End Game deserves a ban.

Yeah, I think they made death almost too unbeatable too quickly. We knew for almost 30 minutes there was nothing that was going to save them except killing the NK so we were just waiting for it all to happen. They whites got over the wall too quickly which made it a little unbelievable that our favor characters were all basically left surrounded by the 5000 dead they killed. It left no real suspense about how they were going to get out of the problem.
