    So once again...the writers forgot about Gendry

    bran had literally no claim nor merit to the throne and look how that turned out. if gendry had no legitimate claim, then the lannisters wouldn't have been dead set on murdering the last remaining bastard of bobby b.

    Dany CAN (And Shall???) Rise Again!!!

    i don't wanna spoil it for those who haven't read the books yet, but there's another certain someone who returns from the dead in grrm's version.

    Were you expecting something different?

    remember gendry baratheon? bastard son of king robert? the guy who whose birthright sparked off literally every event that followed? the guy who inexplicably rowed a boat for several seasons? the guy who ned died for to protect the realm from joffrey's cruelty and cersei's hubris? the guy with the most legitimate claim to the throne, the others being stannis and a targaryan bloodline that has been completely irrelevant for around 2 decades? whose claim to the throne would have restored ned stark's honor and titles? the guy who is easily one of the purest and kindest characters who understands his fellow common man? nah let's give it to bran who rode around on a sled and knows stuff. also, let's just completely forget about him in the final episode, but hey at least he got it on with arya! right guys?! woohoo!

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    "jon" is half targaryan, thus possibly immune to fire.

    dragons are described as highly intelligent in the books. but since that's not addressed in the show, it just comes off as weird.
  7. she lost me by book/season 2 the moment she locked up xaro in his own vault to either starve or suffocate to death, simply for the crime of being a bit of a fibber. the same guy who saved her life by vouching for her entrance into qarth in the first place. then she let her army of savages ransack the city of any valuables they could get their hands on. from then on, every single person that she killed was done in a gruesome manner. even the lannisters were decent enough to give a quick death to traitors like ned stark.
  8. i think it would be safe to assume that jon was already aware of the targaryans' history, as both grrm and the show made it clear in the beginning that the starks were very insistent on educating their children about history. i would imagine jon was given similar treatment, despite being a bastard.
  9. i always saw it as a way to signify his warging ability. that was, in a way, his third eye to view all events at all times. if he could actually view the future, it would just make his story boring. but i don't doubt that he could spot patterns that have occurred throughout history to make an educated guess towards future events.
  10. not to mention that the cities she already "liberated" fell into deep poverty and/or retracted back into slave trade when they lacked any kind of leadership. her reign was not unlike what pol pot did in cambodia, who also murdered the wealthiest and most educated people in a society and just expected everything to even itself out. small wonder that it did not. dany would basically just pat herself on the back and congratulate herself on being such a wonderful person, only to abandon her people and move onto her next conquest. her story was idiotic.

    Killing Bronn

    because a lAnNiStEr aLwAyS pAys hIS dEbts! but seriously, this was easily the most idiotic arc conclusion. it's stated numerous times that sellswords are the lowest of the low and notoriously untrustworthy. they're basically on the same social status as thieves, rapists, and prostitutes. and bronn has proven on numerous occasions that he is strictly driven by greed. i remember in season 2 when tyrion asked if he'd be willing to strip a baby away from it's mother's breast and murder it in front of her, his first question would be how much they'd pay him to do it. bronn was a low-key evil character who just happened to be charming. to me, it seemed like tyrion simply viewed him as a useful idiot who could do his dirty work with no intention of actually giving him titles. it would most likely demerit his family sigil by giving a lowly sellsword titles and castles. the fact that he was even dumb enough to physically assault and threaten the first hand and his brother should have made it even more clear that his demise would be near. i wasn't expecting every character's ending to be "fair", but this was just an asinine way to go about it. the fact that the all-knowing king bran was also okay with it makes it even more ridiculous.

    Robert Baratheon - Not so bad after all

    other than being right about the targaryans, bobby b was a pretty terrible king. i'm fairly certain that his character is based on henry viii, who was also very tall and fat, a huge womanizer, enjoyed crude humor and belching contests, and was very insecure about his critics and would readily accuse people of treason ("i'll have your head on a spike!"). he also inherited a flourishing economy only to squander it away on lavish extravagances and a stronger military. but it's a fair assessment to say he was "not so bad" when comparing him to joffrey or cersei.

    Tormund was right

    he was referring to jon....who rode a dragon in that episode.
