The DragonKnight replied to Cron's topic in E06: Beyond the WallThe show has been in decline since they passed the books. Now, the cracks are really starting to show and I feel like the show is collapsing under its own weight. The show has been playing fast and loose with time/travel for a few seasons now but the last episode really over did it. The reduced episode order is really hurting this season, as there's so much to cover but less time to do so. As a consequence we get ridiculous short cuts and plots holes (where did the wights get the chains to pull Viserion out of the water?) that weren't really present in the earlier seasons (1-4).
