    [Spoilers] Episode 805 Discussion

    I am so conflicted / confused how I feel about this episode , Dany, Jamie all of it but I want to know, and Maybe this has already been discussed , why were so many civilians going into the city??? like there’s an army bearing down on KL and a dragon queen coming why would you think that THAT city is the safe place to be ??? It was t even just the inner wall around the red keep but showed dozens/hundreds/thousands pouring into the city from outside of it. Why?

    Unpopular opinion

    I may not be happy with how things are going/ended for a lot of the characters but its not just that. Even if they all go the same way in the books (which I doubt) this season particularly has just felt rushed and sloppy. At least be consistent and logical (e.g. Rhaegal getting shot 3 times with scorpions and then next time all the boat and KL scorpions are no problem for Dany and Drogon; Euron magically washing ashore next to Jamie so they can fight; Dany "forgetting" about the Iron Fleet; Cersei not killing Dany and or Tyrion when she clearly had the chance at the gates, etc). It just feels lazy and like everything is an afterthought or hand waved away ("just don't think about it too hard" ).

    Goodbye Ghost

    I literally cried out when Jon told tormund to take ghost, like a cry of pain. I hate that DD shit on the direwolves... may “show” ghost find peace and love north of the wall
  4. I'm rather torn on my feelings for this episode. It was good in that I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and it was suspenseful, I didn't know what was going to happen. But one big issue was I could barely tell what was happening! I have a ~60" new 4K Samsung TV, watching it in at least 1080p, I was sitting a few feet away, we spent time adjusting our TV settings and I wore my glasses (which I usually only need in like lecture theatres) and I was still squinting half the time being like "ok some dark blobs just did a thing" or "some thing just happened to some person, I think". I mean its crazy that they had this director who's known for some of the most visually stunning battles in this series (Jon being charged by a wall of horses and riders in Battle of Bastards), they had the budget, they filmed for like 60 days or something and then in the end decided they wanted it so no one could see anything?! Knew Theon was going to die, but it was nicely done. Jorah ... tear to my eyes, great death. Lyanna, I know it was just fan service, but I thought that was great. Surprised Grey Worm made it, thought he was a goner for sure. The Tyrion and Sansa moment was sweet. I'm glad to see Ghost survived (though really wish he would have been used), and the dragons. Poor Edd .... The battle "strategy" was disastrous, why weren't the dragons mowing down dead people beforehand and lighting up the field so people could see. Why wasn't there more fire used as means of protection/blockade ? I read somewhere this was more like a horror movie than a battle/action sequence and for me it was because in horror movies you're always yelling "No you idiot don't go in the basement" and I was yelling at my TV plenty. Bran is worthless/useless. Don't know why NK even cared about him, so what if he can see all of history - rest of the world never even knew about 3ER so whats the point of him (as opposed to a written account of history like at the citadel). He just warg'ed into some crows, for what? He didn't relay any relevant information about the NK or the battle, didn't use the crows to drop fire or anything. The whole bran thing I just don't get, his purpose apparently just to know about Jon's parentage but now we question why that matters (see below). I'm conflicted on the Arya thing. I mean it was unexpected, which while watching was cool, and she is a badass character. But it just makes me wonder what the point of Jon is/was and knowing his parentage. I always thought his parentage - the big secret and reveal of the whole show - was important not so that he could have a claim to the throne but because he was special, he was the prince that was promised and would be the one to defeat the AotD or NK. The whole build up can't really be just so he can "legitiamely" rule the 7 seven kingdoms can it?? And its a bit disappointing that the final showdown, the big ending of this magical legendary tale is about defeating CERSEI- some chick who went batsh*t crazy. Don't really understand how Dany and co supposed to go fight Cersei now, as looks like Dothraki basically gone, Unsullied basically gone, and northern army (and the vale army) basically gone, and no other allies with armies/fighters except for maybe in Iron Islands. Unless she really is just gonna go full dragon fire and burn Cersei in the red keep, I don't see how they could mount an offensive against 20,000 GC (who are rested and healthy unlike our northern friends). Overall, a bit disappointed, but definitely need to watch it again

    Great battle plan! Dubious tactics discussion.

    THIS! There should have been a lot fore fire - barrels of pitch/oil lit up, everyone should have a torch, dragons should have lit up the field /nearby woods to begin with to see the enemy , wood chained up the walls to light up , big bonfires through out the field , just fire and more fire
  7. Someone said a few posts back if job dies again he’s get resurrected by NK, what if that did happen and Jon being brought back once by fire/lord of light and once by ice , turns him in to the ptwp/azor/magical force that can end it all realize not likely but would be a good additional twist on the ice and fire thing

    So Now We Know...

    I also wondered about NK wanting to kill all humans because while they don’t need humans to survive (as they appear immortal) they do need humans to carry on their species as far as I can tell (eg crastors babies to make new WW) i kinda get people’s theory that they’re just doing what the cotf programmer them to do but they’re clearly not just mindless drones- NK seems to be able to think for himself and strategize lay traps etc prolly just need to stop questioning it and just accept what show says st face value, not hopeful we’ll get anything more

    Order of deaths to come.

    I think in terms of who bites it in ep 3 it depends on if the WW storyline continues at all past it. But in general I’d say safe : Dany, Jon, Sansa, the hound, Jamie, tyrion pretty dead : Theon, Grey worm (and or missendei), beric, 50/50 or could go either way: tormund, brienne, pod, davos, Arya, bran, Varys, Jorah , edd, gendry
  10. Feel like Bran needs to say this to Sansa (or somebody should, and maybe Dany too), given when Dany went to make peace with her and she just kept on about "and after we win this and you win that, what then? " she needed a big ole "How do you know there is an after"!!! But back on to Jamie and Bran - don't think Bran cans see the future (unless its "possible" futures) so him saying it is just him saying "Dude chill out lets worry about making it through tomorrow before worrying about what comes next"

    Killing of the NK

    I feel a lot like this will be the case because timing and everything but it also seems crazy that theres 8 season of build up for this battle just for it to end in one fight?! Thats just lunacy. and for Cersei and the IT battle to be the central/ending conflict, also crazy. So now I just don't quite know what to think.

    Ghost

    I think in season 1 , maybe 2, they used real wolves but since they got to more dire wolf size I believe they've been entirely CGI. I hate that D&D cast them/him aside like his, he could and should be more important to Jon and the story. Someone was right above, he could have been handy north of the wall last season or even at hard home. My husband was worked for years for visual effects companies and so I do understand that real creatures (unlike mythical ones like dragons) and particularly real creatures with fur are very difficult to make, and even more difficult to make well. But the "too expensive" excuse I think is BS, if they can afford that much CGI for so much dragon time every season than an episode a season or few minutes of screen time with a wolf clearly isn't going to break the bank, particularly not for a show with a budget this size. They clearly knew people were bitching and I feel like they did it as a fan service, but also a slap in the face. Like many of us were like "don't even care if he's just in the background somewhere, we just want him to be included" so thats exactly what they did. A total afterthought ... though I'm still happy he's there and will clearly riot if he dies next week.

    Dany’s denial

    I think Danys initial reaction of denial or questioning is totally valid, Jon had the same reaction. It is only his brother (brother as he was known before true parentage) and best friend and given how Dany has seen the northmen’s reaction to her it doesn’t seem out of the question that they could create a story to give him claim over her to the throne. Also there is no proof , the septon’s diary only states there was a marriage no mention of a baby at all so at the moment it’s really just Bran’s word and he hasn’t really described to Dany (or anyone else really) what his powers are and what 3ER means. I’d question it too.... if only poor Howland Reed hasn’t been forgotten
