  1. Dany dies. Jon defeats the Night King. Cersei defeats Jon and keeps the Iron Throne. Bittersweet.
  2. StepStark’s commitment to hating Game of Thrones is truly impressive to behold. I’ve never seen anyone expend so much time, energy, and effort on something they so wholly despise since Hitler and the Jews.
  3. It's consistent with how glamors work in GRRM's books. Is ASoIaF trash-tier fantasy, too?
  4. We know that when Melisandre used glamors to change peoples' appearances (e.g. Mance - Rattleshirt), the entire physique appeared different to others, not just the face. The Faceless Men's magic is probably similar. You put on a face, but a full-body glamor results.
  5. According to the (probably fake) season 8 script summary leaks, the final holy $#!+ moment is
  6. People forget that Petyr only betrayed Ned after Ned refused Petyr's proposal to seize Joffrey and take power. Petyr actually tried to help Ned, which he tried to explain to Cat in season 2. When Ned asked Petyr to bribe the Gold Cloaks to support him, there was no way Petyr was going to go along with that stupid plan. It would have been suicidal. Ned screwed Ned, not Petyr.
  7. Best episode of the season by far. Good dialogue, good writing, good payoff and ending to the Littlefinger story. Great Cersei-Tyrion scene. Sansa finally comes into her own, having learned from the master. I also liked how they handled the Jon-Dany sex by making it gross by revealing it's actually incest right before it happened. It wasn't as cheesy as feared. Have to give credit to D&D when it's deserved. (Well, not on this hateful board..)
  8. Valyrian steel is known to kill White Walkers. We don't know that it also kills wights.
  9. Kind of ungrateful on Sansa's behalf. She only escaped King's Landing and Joffrey because of Petyr. He did actually love her, in his own twisted way.
  10. His stupidest decision was not sleeping with Sansa. Hottest babe he ever would have had. What a missed opportunity.
  11. Have to go with Queen Lena. She's been consistently great. It helps that she has probably the most consistently interesting character on the show, even in this sub-par season. Jon's and Davy's actors are functional at best, but they look good. Peter Dinklage is very good, but as you said hurt by his character being turned into a joke/idiot the last couple of seasons. Charles Dance was pretty much perfect. So was Diana Rigg. The Stark girls' actresses are functional, but that's all. Same with Bran's.
  12. Lena Headey and NCW have been pretty good. Actually Jaime and Cersei have been the only interesting characters this season.
  13. This is the worst season so far, by far. It's still entertaining and has some nice visuals and effects, and the episode 4 battle was great to watch, but the the once savvy and compelling characters have all become idiots for no reason. The wight chase mission is incredibly, I mean incredibly stupid and ill-conceived. And not one person on Dany's council of imbeciles objected to it. There is still a chance the show will finish well in season 8. At least it will give us an ending to the story.
  14. AFfC and ADwD are neither poor nor awful "backs" <sic>. They are both very good and are easily the most well written in the series from a literary standpoint, some annoying phrase repetition notwithstanding. They are just not as fast-paced or action-packed as the first 3 books, but they serve well as the slowed-down middle act of a 3-act play. Their importance will certainly be apparent when the series is finished and read as a whole. Sorry, but only the impatient or shallow reader thinks these books are bad. They may be harder to translate to the TV screen than the first 3 books, but I think D&D did a good job of cutting & consolidating to get them to fit into seasons 5 & 6 of GoT, despite what the show haters say.
  15. I read the leaked script. Won't spoil anything, but it sounds awesome. Really looking forward to this episode.
