    [Poll] How would you rate episode 805?

    That is a good analysis. Like some people have said, I personally think the episode is quite good in isolation, it's just problematic in relation to the whole. Like he says in the video, there was foreshadowing for what happened, it just didn't constitute significant enough development to make this season not feel rushed.

    Didn't Dany talk about wanting to burn one or two of the slaver cities to the ground in one season? That would kill a lot of ordinary people. Plus, I think what you're maybe missing is that she's not only recently come to the conclusion that she'll never be loved but she now sees someone with a better claim to the throne than her who does seem to be loved. If someone already has the potential for being mentally unhinged than I personally don't think it'd hard to see how that could prompt some pretty radical changes in behaviour. I said it to someone earlier but I'd like to clarify again that I don't think the pacing here is perfect, I just disagree that it's nearly as bad as some people are making it out to be.

    Again, you're applying a logical objection to someone who at this point isn't all there. The bells ringing might seem satisfactory to you but not to her. I also think that much of the KL populace is still alive as well, I do seem to recall groups of them lying around with horrific burns and I think parts of the city will still be untouched.

    Her conversation with Jon alone explains why she burned it because she felt she'd only ever be able to rule through fear and that was also forshadowed in episode 4 when she watched his interactions with the Northerners and was clearly disturbed by them. Of course that reasoning doesn't exactly make sense because it's the thought process of someone mentally unhinged.

    That wasn't the whole horde that was present in episode 3.

    I think you're overlooking the fact that she has had some serious knocks in the last few episodes that would speed up her transition a lot, losing Jorah, learning of Jon's identity and realizing that he's loved when she isn't, losing a second dragon and then losing Missandei. I don't think the transition is perfect but I think it's a lot better than a lot of people are giving it credit for.

    On top of all the other foreshadowing that there has been in both this season and previous seasons that you apparently haven't picked up on, I think it's passable.

    I think the scene between Dany and Jon gave a fairly obvious explanation with the "It's fear then" line. Dany doesn't believe she can ever be loved or that Jon will always be loved more and that provides her with plenty of motivation to trump that with fear. On another note, people are complaining about Drogon suddenly being able to avoid the Scorpion Ballistas even when there were many more of them but that isn't taking into account the fact that when he was hit by Bronn it was a result of Dany flying straight at him and when Rhaegal was hit it was a result of ambush. None of the dragons have ever been hit by them when they actively trying to avoid it.
  9. I'm glad it was like that, probably a much more realistic representation of what being in a situation like that would be like.
  10. Why did Ramsay shoot Wun-Wun and not Jon?
  11. Exactly, the show is like the books in this regard in that we often can't gauge how much time has passed within different segments of the show. People tend to overlook that.
  12. I gave it an 8. I'm really getting to the point where I can't stand the Mereen storyline. Especially sick of the way Daenerys just seems to cruise through everything with little to no difficulty. Plus, even if they'd heard that Rhaegal and Viserion were in chains, why didn't the slavers prepare a fleet that wasn't totally defenseless against dragons? If I was them, I sure as hell wouldn't want to take my chances that none of them would be released or turn up during the battle. I'm not sure I'd call it a plothole per se but it seems kind of stupid to me. The battle was awesome despite Jon losing his senses. I thought Sansa was great in this as well. I think Sophie Turner is starting to give me a thing for red heads.
  13. I gave it a 7 since I liked or was okay with everything in it (though the Tarly segment was too long and felt a little awkward at first) except for that stupid Dany scene at the end. Getting so tired of these boring speeches about how amazing she is. Hopefully the God's flicked the coin the other way and she ends up being a mad Targ. That would be much more interesting...

    Why didn't one of the Children throw one of their grenades at the Night's King?
  15. Well actually yeah, I wouldn't mind if she did something with wit for a change (she kind of did that in Season 2 when she pretended to give Drogon to the slaver). You're probably right that this would be difficult to make happen but it doesn't change the fact that, for me at least, the outcome of these type of scenes with her are starting to wear a little thin for me.
