  1. Euron and Jaime started fighting for a pretty lame reason. It's almost as if the writers appeared in the show and just say "ok, now we need these dudes to fight. We don't know why but the plot demands it. Enjoy!"
  2. Is anybody else annoyed by the simplicity with which Drogon won the battle? The ballistas conveniently stopped being effective with no attempt of explanation.

    Daenerys has always been a killer

    I started thinking that she might bring problems to Westeros when she crucified those prisoners. I don't think the show is well written, but I wouldn't say that her madness had no anticipation either. Its possibility has been implied several times in the show.

    They showed that she can be a "harsh temper", as you correctly pointed out. They showed that she can kill out of anger, and do it in a pretty brutal way. They showed that her emotional state was significantly altered by watching her beloved friend being beheaded. They stressed several times that there were crazy people among her ancestors. All this stuff, for myself and many others, is a sufficient amount of information to buy what happens in the show. Yet, I am sorry that it didn't work for you. Disappointment is understandable.

    She killed thousands of harmless civilians, women and children included.

    I wouldn't call it a 180. She has shown to be ruthless several times in the past. Also, the possibility that she might end up getting mad was suggested in more than one occasion, especially considering her descendance. If you're saying that it could have been written better, well, I'm with you, but this is true for most of the episodes of the last three seasons. Still, I really don't think it came out of nowhere. In fact, I'd argue that it was pretty strongly anticipated.

    Exactly. I really don't get most of the reactions. They appear to complain because an irrational person does something irrational. What's so strange about it? Besides, I don't get how can anyone claim that this was not anticipated. It was established pretty clearly that she had the potential to be violent and ruthless. It was clearly established that her emotional status was terrible in that moment. Wasn't that enough?

    From the way I understood the episode, it is kind of supposed to "make no sense", since she's blinded by her anger. She's behaving in an irrational way because she got insane. Trying to explain what she does with logic is the wrong way to go, in my opinion.
  9. Some problems might also be due to the lack of time. However, since much time is often wasted in irrelevant scenes, and many solutions were proposed in this forum that would improve the episodes without requiring additional time, I'm not satisfied with this justification. Isn't "giving the audience what they want" a form of "marketing ploy" ? Of course, it's a winning strategy. That's precisely the point I'm making. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that we are essentially saying the same thing, even if I'm using stronger words. And I don't even find it that cynical. It's true also for, let's say, the last Star Wars. It was a decent movie in its category, in my opinion, but it was mainly driven by the objective of being appealing to the largest possible number of fans. And if J J Abrams had had an idea that despite being brilliant would have reduced the number of fans satisfied, he would have probably avoided using it.
  10. I agree, they first choose the major events and cool visuals they absolutely want to put in the season, giving to fan service the priority in the choice, and then they lazily try to glue these major events and visuals with a weak plot, on which they don't spend enough time because they already know that the less demanding fans (namely, the vast majority) will be ok with whatever they're given. It's just marketing strategy, and they only care about selling their product in the same way a corporation sells a shampoo. I'm not even saying this with anger. It's just the way it is.
  11. Thank you for these epic lines. I remember all of them I don't like sand. It's coarse, rough and irritating... And it gets everywhere. C-L-A-S-S-I-C
  12. Even the director said that with the timing they were "straining plausibility". You love the episode more than the director himself
  13. I'm very sorry my friend, but I disagree. I find it poorly written and also the love story didn't feel right. Not the worst in history, ok, but not good either.
  14. In movies there's something much worse: Star Wars Episode II Attack of the clones \:
