  1. I'm not giving a rating, since I only watched bits an pieces of the previous episodes, so I can't speak to how well it was really set up. But the finale felt quite lazy to me, because it was mostly just Peter Dinklage monologuing the plot into the camera. This is a series where the conflicting motivations of dozens of characters was always the driving factor and in the end, one dude comes up with the solution to everything and everyone else is just going along with him. No one at the election council felt like a character except for Edmure, who did what I would have expected from eveyone: Making a case why they should rule or what they want. But no, he gets shut down after 10 seconds as a quick joke. Stupid Edmure, this is the Tyrion show, sit down and listen.
  2. Yes, that was a plot point in the books but not in the TV show. Dalla was cut entirely, so there is no Mance baby.
  3. Isnt't he also still a sworn brother of the Night's watch?
  4. No problem, thanks for the correction. So, actually even less pro Jons legitimacy here
  5. Good points but even if Bran proved his abilities beyond a doubt, people who just don't want Jon as king could still make a pretty good case that Bran is simply lying about Jons parentage to put his brother on the throne. And iirc the diary from the citadel only mentions a wedding (which should also be heavily questioned as illegal) between Rhaegar and Lyanna, not that they had a child.
  6. The gray area is getting the Lords of Westeros to actually (wanting to) believe that Jon is a Targ and even a legitimate one. As pointed out in the show, all his proof comes from his brother and his best friend, which is rather weak. So Jon being a man is certainly a selling point in this society, especially when it comes to the Iron Throne where inheritance is even more unfavorable towards women after the Dance of Dragons.

    Starkbucks Cup?

    But you made it sound like criticism was especially harsh in this case compared to others and or that it is a matter of "forgetting reality outside of the internet" to be focusing on something like that. When it's just: They made a stupid mistake and people are having a bit of fun with it for a few days.

    Starkbucks Cup?

    And all of these productions have been so thoroughly ridiculed for these things that we still remember them after 10+ years, as demonstrated by you being able to cite them after a quick google search. GoT is no exception to making these mistakes, GoT is no exception to being made fun of for them.

    It was "Kelly C.", of course

    What is stopping Arya from killing Cersei and Euron?

    Arya might not even have to impersonate anyone. Don't forget, Varys is also on their side and could tell her all about the secret passages in the Red Keep (something that allowed Tyrion to get directly into Tywins chambers and kill him) AND they have Bran who can do magical recon missions to find out where and when Cersei is the most vulnerable. Honestly, Arya should just stab Cersei and Euron in their sleep and be out of the city again before anyone even notices. Any other approach would need to be explained. (e.g. Jamie and Tyrion arguing against killing her)
  11. He actively refuses to be knighted
  12. You are assuming that everyones rating is (or should be) in comparison to other TV shows. Which is not the case.
  13. Because the Tyrells aren't good fighters, according to Olenna. It's a pretty stupid explanation, but it's the one the writers gave us.
  14. Maybe the episode wasn't so bad in itself but more the straw that broke the camels back for me, because it included so many things that have become annoying about the show and made me like it less and less over the last few seasons: - The culmination of a 2 season long plot that did absolutely not justify itself because of the lack of consequences and the resolution being ridicolously quick and easy (Jorahs greyscale) - A lazy rehash of an previous scene (Ellaria, Yara and Tyene doing a "walk of shame") - REVELING in violence topped of with a villain monologue (Cersei in the dungeons) - Euron, who has quickly replaced the Sand Snakes as the shows most irritating, out of place character (the SS felt like straight out of a campy Conan adaption, Euron would be fitting as ... I don't know ... leader of some space bandits in a Firefly-knockoff?) - The ongoing assassination of Jamie's character - Talk about fingering bums - An incredibly underwhelming Stark reunion - Littlefinger spouting pseudo-clever nonsense - Not even trying to make the logistics of war seem remotely plausible. Armies just pop up where and when they are needed.
  15. 1/10 This was the worst episode in the series history. A boring, B-movie level, melodramatic soap-opera, that can't even be saved anymore by actors that are way to good for this. Can't even make fun of this anymore, I am done with watching.
