  1. Why would the other kingdoms agree to have a Northern Man who they don't know rule them when even his sister doesn't accept his rule? It makes no sense. The Iron Islands are a part of the North and they are now under Bran even though they were independent under Dany? It was an absurd scene.
  2. The Dothraki are at 50% strength so 10,000 before the attack on KL. I don't think many died there unless Dany burned them. Why would Sam represent the Maesters? He abandoned his position and stole a bunch of stuff. The best he could have expected was to be returned to poop montage doody. No... sorry... they made him Grand Maester... I guess you are right. Go around the circle and tell me who everyone is.. They didn't flash forward, that was the first small council meeting, listen to what they are talking about. The absolute core basics of reconstruction. Unless King Bran did nothing during that whole flash forward time... Arya has never shown an explorer streak, nor an interest in ship travel. Nearly any option (other than Gendry) would have made more sense. It was like they were setting up some shitty spinoff that would be cancelled after one season. Jon's bloodline was never mentioned in that discussion, nor would it draw many people to his cause when he didn't want it. He should have been executed by Grey Worm in any case. Religion is a big deal in Westeros. You blow up a building and that doesn't go away. Religion would be represented in that council. Look how he picks her up and watch how clawed animals pick things up. See the difference?

    Purpose of the wall now ?

    It will guard against Grumkins and Snarks that can't walk west.

    What about the Dothraki?

    I assume they return to raping and pillaging in Westeros now.

    The Six Kingdoms

    It was an absurd answer. The six kingdoms stay under the rule of the Northern version of wikepedia while the North is independent. And the Iron Islands are not part of the North? I'll assume Man1, Man2 or Man3 (those were their CC names) represented The Reach and Casterly Rock. The largest army in Westeros had no say. I assume The Dothraki just start raping and pillaging in Westeros now. It would break apart as soon as armies were rebuilt.
  6. 5, meaning it was better than 50% of the stuff on TV this year. A complete bag of meh. Gutless, generic ending with garbage direction. Thanks Dumb and Dumber for having too much ego to hire an actual director to finish your precious show. An unending chain of two-headed scenes shot in the more boring way possible. The council of the dragon pit was one of the dumbest scenes in show history. This was the 10 minute version of Bad Pussy. Why were Sam (he was not representing The Reach, he went back to citadel), Brienne (a non-landed knight, veteran of ONE battle), Arya and three unknown men there? Literally unknown. CC had them as Man1, Man2, and Man3. Grey Worm speaks for the Dothraki too??? AND THEN DOESN'T GET A SAY. People of color, get in your corner! Having the largest remaining army means nothing. Bronn is too busy fliming John Wick 3 I guess. Sam is Grand Maester. Got it. Takes weeks. As does writing and binding the book! That was clearly the first meeting of the small council. They haven't begun to rebuild. Arya is an explorer now. When fan fiction has no idea how to end an arc... Jon rejoins the Night's Watch and then immediately abandons his post again? Religion is simply gone... As is Drogon. Who apparently has never picked up anything was his claw before since he doesn't know how it's done.

    Nikolaj on working with D&D

    Gradually is the word. It's not like as soon as the finale is available, they have any different relationship to the show. Their role in it ended some time ago (and their checks all cleared already). Generally people in Hollywood are pretty tight lipped about professional issues as they all want to keep working in the biz. It's very surprising how vocal they've been about it.

    Nikolaj on working with D&D

    Here is the Stephen Dillane (Stannis) quote. “I’ve flicked [the show] on [since leaving] to see if I could figure out what was going on, but I couldn’t,” he reportedly said. “Liam Cunningham [who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, Stannis’ right-hand man] is so passionate about the show. He invests in it in a way I think is quite moving, but it wasn’t my experience. I was entirely dependent on Liam to tell me what the scenes were about — I didn’t know what I was doing until we’d finished filming and it was too late. The damage had been done. I thought no one would believe in me and I was rather disheartened by the end. I felt I’d built the castle on non-existent foundations.”

    He was just glad it wasn't Moon Boy
  10. Good catch Gendry becomes legitimized oddly makes him Robert's heir and thus the rightful heir to the throne AFTER Dany ascends to the throne through right of conquest. So I guess he instantly become her enemy.... Raising up Gendry would actually have been a good plot point in a long season of early GOT as he would have been an effective tool for bringing the Stormlords to Dany's cause. Perhaps that is what Martin will do with Eldric Storm.

    Of course no one in KL talked to Jaime about the walk of shame. Just like the half of Stannis's army that deserted him never said a word to Davos about Shyreen... D&D write whatever it takes to get the scene they want. Sense and character have no bearing on it.
  12. It is Dumb and Dumber's writing style. They wanted the bells to mean surrender so the bells now mean surrender. Everything that comes before or makes sense has no bearing on what happens.

    It's very damning. Conleth Hill was very critical (as much as Hollywood ever is) in his interview with EW.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 805?

    I mostly agree, it would an odd choice for HBO to lean heavily on D&D as the show had become extremely successful commercially almost exactly (inversely ) as it became a lower quality show in terms of the prestige drama it originally was (I don't think the original intent was a spectacle based blockbuster format). As they switched from adapting material to creating their own material, I wish HBO had insisted they hire stronger writers to make up the gap. It's hard to imagine D&D would have put up a huge fight over this as they clearly became tired of the show (HBO wanted more, they insisted on these short final seasons). I mock D&D more than almost anyone, but they got asked to play a hand they didn't agree to. I just wish they had the awareness to find people who could play it competently and stick to producing which they are excellent at. As for Dany's heel turn. There is a HUGE difference a well-earned surprise (The Red Wedding or The Sixth Sense) and a rug pull for the sake of shock (how I see this or The Village). The well earned surprise for this would include more build up (I'm sure the book is headed this way) and be something more sensible. Dany could blast apart the Red Keep after they surrender. It would still cause horrid collateral damage, but it would fit more with her building profile of anger followed by excessive violence directed at the source of the anger. There were much better ways to do this face turn, and I'm hoping Martin will give us one.

    Who liked sandor's ending.

    He has been a nihilistic wanderer for most of his life. His arc doesn't end in redemption and it shouldn't. He had brief flashes of finding some meaning in his life but usually they were more moments of convenience for him then true transformation. I didn't like the filming of the fight, but I think it was the right way for his arc to end. A pointless death trying get some small bit of satisfaction.
